Glenn Beck: Spotlight on Science - Artificial Intelligence

VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents Spotlight on Science.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We'll restore science to its rightful place.

VOICE: A series dedicated to President Obama's passion for everything science.

GLENN: Have you seen the breaking news on Drudge? I'm just looking at the science update. Here's the breaking news on Drudge: White House performance czar has withdrawn her candidacy in a new tax mess. We'll get to that here in a second, and your phone call. The number is 888-727-BECK.

Google and NASA are throwing their weight behind a new school for futurists in Silicon Valley to prepare scientists for an era when machines are more clever than people. This is something that over a year ago with Ray Kurzweil we spoke about on this program, and again I said this is great stuff, but let's think this one through. Are we the people that can handle that kind of stuff? I mean, I'm not a scientist. I've got somebody -- I've got a Bible on my bedstand, and I read it from time to time. So what do I know about scientists? I don't believe in dinosaurs.

I've always thought that creating computers that are smarter than us -- maybe it's just me -- not really a good idea. You know what I mean? I mean, if they figured a way, you know, figured out a way around the whole control/alt/delete thing, you think maybe they would be like, you're not going to shut me down; I'm smarter than you, clown. The new institution known as Singularity University is to be headed by Ray Kurzweil whose predictions about the exponential pace of technological change have made him a controversial figure in technological circles, NASA's backing demonstrates the growing mainstream acceptance of Mr. Kurzweil's views which include a claim that before the middle of the century artificial intelligence will outstrip human beings, you are ushering in a new era of civilization. By the way, Ray Kurzweil, I have watched this man for a very long time. Took me 10 years to finally get an interview with I am had. I finally got one. Within the last 12 months he told me by 2050 there will be no death. I thought that was pretty good until I realized what he meant by that is you'll just download your personality into a computer, so you'll live forever. Okay, Ray, thanks. That sounds a little spooky.

I mean, I like him and everything, but if we really want to speed this technology up -- I'm sorry, that was just common sense Glenn speaking there for a second. I'm probably getting closer to my Bible. Wasn't thinking of all the benefits of having artificial technology that could kill all of us. We'll save 40% of our energy bills. The Singularity University will offer courses in biotechnology, nanotechnology and artificial intelligence. The so-called singularity is a theorized period of rapid technological process in the near future. We are close to the singularity, gang, and that's when the black hole eats us.

Proponents say that during the singularity machines will be able to improve themselves using artificial intelligence and that smarter than human computers will solve problems including energy, climate change, hanger. I'll tell you how area they going to solve hunger. They're going to kill us all! I'm sorry, I'm sorry again. That was just me and my Bible. Nothing wrong with computers that can fix themselves and solve the world hunger. That's a good thing.

School is backed by Larry Page, Google co-founder. Not only Google, wasn't he just in meetings with the president recently? I love this connection with the government and stuff. Peter Diamandis, chief executive of XPRIZE, an organization which provides grants to support technological change. "We're anchoring the university in what is in the lab today with an understanding of what's in the realm of possibility in tomorrow. The day before something is truly a breakthrough, it's a crazy idea." By the way, this is from the vice chancellor.

Again, I'm not a scientist but I think we should stop with the computer czar. That's a bad thing. And chancellor? Wasn't Hitler a chancellor? Wasn't the bad guy in "Star Wars," isn't he a chancellor? I mean, he was the evil emperor and nobody saw that coming but, you know, don't listen to me. I'm just somebody who's polishing up my gun later on tonight.

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.
