Seeing Is Believing? Not So Much. With This New Tech, You Won't Be Able to Trust Your Eyes or Ears.

I want to show you what's coming and why you must work on repairing any flaws in your credibility, and do not play games with politics or anything else. I want to explain to you where we're headed.

We are already in a place where we don't trust anything, right?

If something comes out and it's about a politician, we tend to dismiss it because there's a lot of power behind that. And, you know, there are a lot of reasons people would make accusations.

People are saying now, "hey, we have to believe the accusers." No, we have to listen to the accusers. And then we have to listen to the other side, and then we have to make a decision.

Right now, we're not doing that. Somebody comes out and accuses, we believe it. And it's over. It's really dangerous.

Who do you believe? Well, if there was videotape. Well, if there was audio.

Let me give you a story. It's from Wired Magazine:

Turning a horse into a zebra is a nice stunt, but that’s not all it is. It is also a sign of the growing power of machine learning algorithms to rewrite reality.

Now, zebraification was a really big deal. Taking a video of a horse in a field that's walking by a fence. And that is the original. Then, they take this and they make it a zebra. This algorithm could take that horse and make it look like a zebra.

Sure there were little glitches here or there, but it was pretty close. And it was like, "oh, my gosh. Look at a zebra." If you weren't looking for it, you might not spot it, okay? Zebraificiation. The article continues:

Other tinkerers, for example, have used the zebrafication tool to turn shots of black bears into believable photos of pandas, apples into oranges, and cats into dogs. A Redditor used a different machine learning algorithm to edit porn videos to feature the faces of celebrities.

Now, this has just come out in the last couple of days. So now you can take a porn video, just a regular person can take a porn video and now superimpose the faces of celebrities in those videos. Now, it's still pretty crude. But that's just on the market.

You could do this. There's a new startup called Lyrebird. Machine-learning experts are synthesizing convincing audio from one-minute samples of a person's voice.

Now, do you remember? About a year ago, they were working on this, and it may have been Lyrebird. And they took audio of Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama, and it was pretty good. It had the tone down. But you could still tell it was a computer. This team of scientists had put this together and put it out, and it was a story and we reported on it.

This is not the same story. Now, you can go to the website and do this to your own voice.

I've just put in some lines into this, and they're crunching it now. It takes a while to crunch and synthesize my voice. I haven't heard it myself, but I know what it sounded like a year ago when a team of scientists did it. Now you can do it on an app.

Back to the story:

The engineers developing Adobe’s artificial intelligence platform, called Sensei, are infusing machine learning into a variety of groundbreaking video, photo, and audio editing tools. These projects are wildly different in origin and intent, yet they have one thing in common: They are producing artificial scenes and sounds that look stunningly close to actual footage of the physical world....

But this boom will have a dark side, too. Some AI-generated content will be used to deceive, kicking off fears of an avalanche of algorithmic fake news. Old debates about whether an image was doctored will give way to new ones about the pedigree of all kinds of content, including text. You’ll find yourself wondering, if you haven’t yet: What role did humans play, if any, in the creation of that album/TV series/clickbait article?

At this point, there is enough video of me for the best of AI, I am told, to make a video of me doing and saying anything. And they will have the mannerisms down pat. You will be able to falsify video. Now, this is at the NSA or Google (top-of-the-food-chain) level, that they're able to do those things now.

We're talking about being able to create them for pennies on the dollar in apps. In realtime.

You won't be able to trust your eyes or your ears. The article goes on:

Currently there are two ways to produce audio or video that resembles the real world. The first is to use cameras and microphones to record a moment in time, such as the original Moon landing. The second is to leverage human talent, often at great expense, to commission a facsimile. So if the Moon descent had been a hoax, a skilled film team would have had to carefully stage Neil Armstrong’s lunar gambol. Machine learning algorithms now offer a third option, by letting anyone with a modicum of technical knowledge algorithmically remix existing content to generate new material.

Now, here's why this is a problem: someone asks, "is there any evidence that something happened?"

You might reply, "well, "I have this picture." Right now, they're doing this with Donald Trump. He says, "I never met her." Well, she is at Mar-a-Lago, right next to him and his wife with a bunch of other people.

Okay. So the excuse is, well, that was just a line. I don't remember all the people that I meet and take pictures of. Okay. I agree with that.

However, if you could take that photo and you could make it so you see him with his hand down, going behind her, on her butt, if you could take that photo and show it from the other side, well, now you have something, right? And, I mean, look at the photo. Look at the photo. It's right there.

What if it was fake? Oh, yeah, right. It's fake. No one would believe it.

Now, you would say, "well, they'd be able to tell."

No, they won't. Russia. I told you this story about a year ago. Russia came out with a doctored photo of the moon landing.

It showed the astronaut in front of the Apollo. But on the Apollo 11, it had a Russian flag on the Apollo 11. It had a Russian name on the suit. A Russian flag on his shoulder. And he was planting the Russian flag on the moon.

Now, anybody could PhotoShop that. However, once you start to go in, you can do forensics on that and say, "okay, this has been Photoshopped."

Russia offered a million dollars to anyone that could prove that that was a doctored photo. They have gotten the algorithms down so well, that you can now not tell, even with forensics, whether that is real or fake.

Think of the ramifications of this. You will not be able to believe your ears. You will not be able to believe your eyes.

We are going to have to have extraordinary discipline, extraordinary patience. Extraordinary discernment. We are going to need to listen to the small, still voice to say, "this is right. This is wrong. Go here. Go there."

So the next thing you would say is, "well, we have to see your face." Well, do you have the new iPhone 10?

Face ID. It measures thirty thousand points on your face.

So it automatically makes you like a puppet. It's a virtual puppet.

And it's watching your face and expression. So if you move your eyebrows, it moves its eyebrows. It syncs with your voice. Now, think of that not as a cute, funny little bear, but as a picture of someone else. You now have Donald Trump's face on --- as an app, and you now can speak. And it will digitalize his face to move like your face.

That's where we're at. We're using it as a bear now. But very soon, you'll be able to digitalize any face and make it say things that it didn't say. You're not going to know the truth.

It's the instinctive stuff. Our eyes and our ears. "I saw it myself." We're losing that. And I think we're going to lose it in the next 18 to 24 months.

When that happens, we better know what's true inside of ourselves. We better know who our spouses are. We better know who the people are that we're with. And they better know you.

Because the world is about to change.

This article is based on the transcript from Glenn's radio program from December 14, 2017. It has been edited for length and clarity.

Anyone paying attention can see that President Biden is in dire straights come 2024, regardless of who his opponent may be. His administration has been workshopping several ideas to try and craft just the right message. One that will cut through all the noise (failures) and put him on a more solid footing should he go head-to-head in a rematch with the former President.

Biden called in the big guns and he wasn't afraid to call in a few favors either. He drew on his stint as VP and called Anita Dunn out of the bullpen and tapped the Center for American Progress Action Fund to try and help pull this one out. After an exhaustive six-month-long study into how President Trump was able to summon the magic of MAGA — they finally feel they have the winning message.

Dunn has gotten sloppy, however, since her days in the Obama administration. We obtained her contemporaneous notes and emails showing how they coined the term "ultra-MAGA," trying to get a little "extra pop" to his rhetoric. The leaked emails also show the evolution of the messaging over that same six-month period.


[The preceding Memo was a parody written by MRA writers Josh Jennings and Jon Boldt – not the Biden administration.]

Almost every week, new incriminating evidence is mined from Hunter’s wild laptop. And the proof is mounting that President Joe Biden is lying about his knowledge of his family’s crooked deal-making. Everyone knows Hunter Biden is a seriously degenerate guy. Anyone who has handled his infamous laptop needs a tetanus shot.

The salacious stuff on the laptop is sad and pathetic for sure, but that stuff is NOT what is most relevant to the United States. Glenn Beck exposes how the laptop is REALLY about Joe Biden, his abuse of power as vice president, and his ongoing denials now as president.

Now that the 2020 election has passed and their man is in office, the mainstream media have suddenly decided to admit Hunter’s laptop is not Russian disinformation after all. No one has done more research into the Biden family corruption than journalist and best-selling author Peter Schweizer. He has researched the depths of Hunter’s laptop and found more than racy photos. “These aren’t HUNTER’S business deals,” Peter says, “they benefit the WHOLE family.” And he has the emails to prove it.

But the mainstream media still insist President Biden is as pure as his thinning white hair in all of this. As Glenn reveals tonight, he is not. But will anyone in the Biden family see jail time? Americans are fed up with two sets of rules – one for regular citizens and one for the ruling elites.

Intelligent people know that wokerness plagues society and must be ridiculed and eradicated from conversations. But what happens when people lose their jobs for calling out the absurdity of woke ideology? What happens when corporations and media sources weaponize wokeness?

Here are five videos that will help us better understand a few of the many issues that wokeness inflicts on society and how we can stand against it.

Bye bye, Target. You crossed the line!

In this clip, BlazeTV host Allie Stuckey of "Relatable" explains how Target recently announced the sale of chest binders and "packing underwear" for women. She expresses how children can be negatively impacted by the sale of confusing clothing items for people suffering from gender dysphoria and the importance of loving the body God gave us.

Today, Allie notices that Target's stock experienced a 35-year record drop. Apparel was named as one of the two underperforming departments. Was pushback from critics of gender-affirming apparel the cause? It is hard to tell, but Allie encourages her audience to continue speaking out when corporations cross the line by making harmful products available for sale to the public.

Wokeness can get you fired

In this clip, Stu Burguiere covers a story about a man who challenged Black Lives Matter using nothing but data and was fired.

Here's the story: "I had been at Thomson Reuters for over six years—most recently, leading a team of data scientists applying new machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms to our legal, tax and news data. We advised any number of divisions inside the company, including Westlaw, an online legal research service used by most every law firm in the country, and the newsroom, which reaches an audience of one billion every day around the globe. I briefed the Chief Technology Officer regularly. My total annual compensation package exceeded $350,000." Read more

"We live in the era of woke religion," says Stu.

Coca-Cola circumvents Constitution with TERRIFYING mandates on diversity

Glenn Beck loves Coca-Cola. So much so, in fact, that he refuses to drink Pepsi if Coke isn't available. But ... he says the time has come for him to give up his favorite soda. Why? Because Coca-Cola just announced some terrifying new company policies on diversity and equity. It sent out notices to all partnered law firms, demanding a required percentage of diverse attorneys on any legal team working for the corporation. The notice says all legal teams also must report these numbers quarterly and they will lose Coca-Cola's business if they do not comply.

"Equity is not the same thing as equality," Glenn said, adding that equality means we all have an equal chance, while equality means we all have the same outcome.

Glenn explains how mandates like this could affect everybody — even the guy working on the factory line or the truck driver delivering the drinks. Glenn also explains how Coke's new move is nothing less than a circumvention of the Constitution, and he predicts more companies (especially those in support of the Great Reset) will follow with similar policies, too.

Coca-Cola takes a 'pause' on woke initiatives after after pressure from the Right

Glenn followed up on a story about Coca-Cola becoming the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appeared to shift directions.

Calvin Klein's gender blender ruins sex and Mothers' Day

Chad Prather reflected back to the Great Depression era of enticing photographic entertainment, otherwise known as the callow and deprived years of his youth, when a Calvin Klein pictorial of old would have represented something exciting, something to, say, think about at the end of the day. Had he run across this present weird concept at that age, he would have either been disgusted on sight … or possibly really disgusted when his dumb a** put two and two together the next day. Anyway, his point is: Has the whole world gone crazy? Do we really need this? At this inclusive embracing point in our recent history, what in the world makes Calvin Klein feel the need to be the standard-bearer for a lifestyle screamed largely into existence by a very vocal minority?

Former Disney artist SPEAKS OUT: ‘It’s time to do something’

A former Disney artist, who wishes to remain anonymous, joins Glenn to describe WHY he recently took action against his former employer: ‘I'm tired of watching my country go down the drain. And it's time to do something.’ Today’s woke Disney is not what Walt once imagined, he says, and his recent video release — "It’s A Woke World After All" — exposes Disney’s large stray from its roots ...

Rolling Stone magazine on Sunday published an article that argued in no uncertain terms that the suspect who grotesquely took the lives of ten people in Buffalo, New York, last weekend was a "mainstream Republican."

Like so many in the corporate media, the article's author Talia Lavin — who in 2018 resigned from the New Yorker after falsely accusing a combat-wounded veteran and ICE agent of having a Nazi tattoo — has painted the Buffalo killer as a right-wing, white supremacist, Tucker Carlson-worshipping conservative who is "gripped by a racist delusion."

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck revealed what the killer actually wrote in his alleged "manifesto," which proves he was far from a freedom-loving constitutionalist, and explained why blatantly ignoring his words will only make the problem worse.

"The corporate media has, from the very get-go, tried to associate [the killer] with the Republicans, to say that he's a conservative, to say that he got all of his training from Tucker Carlson," Glenn began. "But you know it's weird, in the 180-page document authored by the shooter, he doesn't mention Tucker Carlson — not even once. Not at all. There is one mention of Fox News, and it's an infographic showing the top Fox News host, such as Maria Bartiromo and Greg Gutfeld, as being Jewish. He also says Rupert Murdoch is a Christian Zionist who may have Jewish ancestry though it's never been publicly admitted," he continued.

"Oh, another thing. Ben Shapiro is mentioned multiple times, including as an example as the 'rat of the Jewish people.' So gosh, that doesn't sound conservative to me, doesn't sound Republican, doesn't sound like he's learned anything from anybody that is on the right. Moreover, he has described himself as an ethno-nationalist and eco-fascist national socialist. He loathes libertarianism and conservatism in particular."

Watch the video clip below to hear more of the criminal's own words, which prove he was no right-winger and certainly NOT a "mainstream Republican."
