I was thinking this weekend, about the power of the individual. We have been trained by very powerful people and organizations to forget this. It used to be that we could be trained by organizations to better empower ourselves, but now corporations are aligning themselves with the government, making us feel small and powerless.

But don't.

I want to tell you about a story that takes you from the early 20th century, starting with a guy, alone in a field, all the way to where we are today.

Back in the early 20th century, one American found himself alone on a battlefield—not one of bullets and bombs, but a battle of wits and innovation and stamina. The battle would determine the fate of an industry, and all of our lives individually.

Our protagonist, born to humble beginnings in a log cabin, was a genius. As a teenager, he had a really uncanny ability to envision the future beyond the limits of his time. His favorite subjects were science and mathematics. He would dream with his science teacher, who first thought that he was a little nuts. Most geniuses are perceived that way in the beginning.

Our hero faced all kinds of obstacles that would have broken the will of many, but he was driven by an unshakable belief that tomorrow could be better than today. He had an unwavering hope in the power of the individual and the incredible things he could accomplish in our country through hard work and determination.

In our country, he believed, you could stand up to the man.

And he did.

He was driven by an unshakable belief that tomorrow can be better than today.

When he started to get going, everyone stood against him: the giants of industry, the titans of commerce, the lords of finance. He had one main opponent that tried to discredit his ideas. This opponent sabotaged his work. He sent spies into this little guy's workshop. But no matter how much this guy spent, no matter how much power this man had, no matter how much he would expend in resources, our little hero just kept working at night.

One day, our hero was plowing the field on his family's farm. As he was turning the plow to start a new row, he saw all of the rows lined up next to each other. It gave him an idea, and that moment changed the entire world. He envisioned a series of dots lined up just like the rows on his family's farm that could transmit an image onto a screen.

When he brought it up, he received ridicule, skepticism, and betrayal from those he trusted. He set up a little lab in San Francisco, but he couldn't get anybody to invest. He was making the equipment himself, but it kept failing because he didn't know how to make it. He started making his own little components, and improvised solutions with an unwavering faith in his vision.

He received ridicule, skepticism, and betrayal from those he trusted.

On September 7th, 1927, he transmitted the very first electronic television image, a straight line. He used a single beam of electrons, creating the first fully functional, all-electronic television system. As the years passed, the fruits of his labor began to take shape. One day, to the astonishment of the world, he unveiled his creation—a groundbreaking innovation that would change the way we work, the way we live, the way we communicate.

The invention, a marvel of modern engineering and design, captivated the public. It sent shock waves through the industries that once sought to destroy him. The giants that scoffed at him now found themselves scrambling to catch up as their empires began to crumble. Through a series of lengthy battles with these giants in court, our hero defended his patents and secured his place in history.

The giants that scoffed at him now found themselves scrambling to catch up.

That little man who faced the insurmountable odds and emerged victorious was none other than Philo Farnsworth.

He was the inventor of the fully functional, all-electronic television system, the device that brought families together, shaped culture, and connected us to the world and to space. We saw a man who walked on the moon made possible through the brainchild of a man who fought a lonely battle against the giants of his time, and it's all but forgotten.

But it all started with a guy who was working out in a field. When he turned his plow and saw those lines, he thought, "If I put dots of color, into lines, several lines, I'll be able to transmit a picture." Those dots we now know as pixels, the building block of every image we see today. In 1927, his invention changed the world, making all his hard work in the face of adversity worth it.

Farnsworth has been a pivotal source of inspiration for me. In 2011, we launched BlazeTV. At the time, traditional cable networks were still the dominant force in news and entertainment. I remember sitting in my office, looking at my news team, when Stu, my executive producer, and I said, "This is all going to come collapsing down around them." We decided to embrace the power of the internet and embrace the power of an audience. Like Farnsworth, the "establishment" didn't like us. They laughed and said it would NEVER work.

We bypassed the gatekeepers of television, and we made BlazeTV an independent place for the voice to be heard. It was a place to connect and hear the truth, engage in thoughtful discussions about the issues that matter most. And because of our success, OTHERS followed in our footsteps while our mainstream critics are struggling to keep afloat. A new wave of independent media organizations emerged and leveraged the power of the internet, to create alternative sources of information and entertainment.

We bypassed the gatekeepers of television, and we made the BlazeTV an independent place for the voice to be heard.

All of us in the independent media have thrived on the principles of honesty, integrity, and intellectual curiosity—something that is all, but dead in the mainstream media. Today's mainstream media is tragically clinging to the past and has exposed themselves in their desperation to survive.

They have no desire to be useful and relevant—the fact that they are willing to call a woman a man, and a man a woman is a cry of desperation, not of relevancy. In reality, the only way to survive is to remain loyal only to the truth. We're not battling people. We're battling desperation. We're battling evil—a relentless barrage of falsehoods and manipulations.

But the truth will always weather the storm.

Most people don't know, I named BlazeTV after two things. One of them was the burning bush of Moses. It was a fire of truth that burned but was never consumed. As long as we're truthful, that fire will burn and will never consume.

The truth will always weather the storm.

I just want to remind you that things always change, but individuals make all of the difference. Our country is a testament to the power of innovation, resilience, and the unwavering belief of the individual, the importance of free speech, open discourse, and the rule of law. Let that be your beacon of hope this week. No matter what is collapsing around us, there's somebody thinking of something much better. And it's growing.

Right now, as we see the collapse of truth, just know you have helped build something that will replace those lies. A positive change is possible, if we believe in the truth and ourselves.

5 SURPRISING ways space tech is used in your daily life

Is your vacuum cleaner from SPACE?

This week, Glenn is discussing his recent purchase of a Sputnik satellite, which has got many of us thinking about space and space technology. More specifically, we've been wondering how technology initially designed for use outside Earth's atmosphere impacted our lives down here on terra firma. The U.S. spent approximately $30 billion ($110 billion in today's money) between the Soviet launch of Sputnik in 1957 and the Moon Landing in 1969. What do we have to show for it besides some moon rocks?

As it turns out, a LOT of tech originally developed for space missions has made its way into products that most people use every day. From memory foam to cordless vacuums here are 5 pieces of space tech that you use every day:

Cellphone camera

Have you ever seen a photograph of an early camera, the big ones with the tripod and curtain, and wondered how we went from that to the tiny little cameras that fit inside your cellphone? Thank NASA for that brilliant innovation. When you are launching a spaceship or satellite out of the atmosphere, the space onboard comes at a premium. In order to make more room for other equipment, NASA wanted smaller, lighter cameras without compromising image quality, and the innovations made to accomplish this goal paved the way for the cameras in your phone.

Cordless vacuums and power tools

When exploring the moon, NASA wanted astronauts to use a drill to collect samples from the lunar surface. The problem: the moon has a severe lack of electrical outlets to power the drills. NASA tasked Black & Decker with developing a battery-powered motor powerful enough to take chunks out of the moon. The resulting motor was later adapted to power cordless power tools and vacuums in households across America.

Infrared ear thermometer

What do distant stars and planets have in common with your eardrum? Both have their temperature read by the same infrared technology. The thermometers that can be found in medicine cabinets and doctors' offices across the world can trace their origins back to the astronomers at NASA who came up with the idea to measure the temperature of distant objects by the infrared light they emit.

This one may seem obvious, but sometimes you need a massively complicated problem to come up with simple solutions. During the Space Shuttle program, NASA had a big problem: hydroplaning. Hydroplaning is dangerous enough when you are going 70 miles an hour in your car, but when you're talking about a Space Shuttle landing at about 215 miles per hour, it's an entirely different animal. So what was NASA's space-age solution? Cutting grooves in the pavement to quickly divert water off the runway, a practice now common on many highways across the world.

Memory foam

If you've ever slept on a memory foam mattress, it probably won't come as a shock to find out that the foam was created to cushion falls from orbit. Charles Yotes was an astronautical engineer who is credited with the invention of memory foam. Yotes developed the technology for the foam while working on the recovery system for the Apollo command module. The foam was originally designed to help cushion the astronauts and their equipment during their descent from space. Now, the space foam is used to create some of the most comfortable mattresses on Earth. Far out.

5 most HORRIFIC practices condoned by WPATH

Whatever you know about the "trans movement" is only the tip of the iceberg.

In a recent Glenn TV special, Glenn delved into Michael Schellenberger's "WPATH files," a collection of leaked internal communications from within the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH). Glenn's research team got their hands on the WPATH files and compiled the highlights in Glenn's exclusive PDF guide which can be downloaded here. These documents reveal the appalling "standards" created and upheld by WPATH, which appear to be designed to allow radical progressive surgeons to perform bizarre, experimental, and mutilating surgeries on the dime of insurance companies rather than to protect the health and well-being of their patients. These disturbing procedures are justified in the name of "gender-affirming care" and are defended zealously as "life-saving" by the dogmatic surgeons who perform them.

The communications leaked by Schellenberger reveal one horrific procedure after another committed in the name of and defended by radical gender ideology and WPATH fanatics. Here are five of the most horrifying practices condoned by WPATH members:

1.Trans surgeries on minors as young as 14

One particular conversation was initiated by a doctor asking for advice on performing irreversible male-to-female surgery on a 14-year-old boy's genitals. WPATH doctors chimed in encouraging the surgery. One doctor, Dr. McGinn, confessed that he had performed 20 such surgeries on minors over the last 17 years!

2.Amputation of healthy, normal limbs

BIID, or Body Integrity Identity Disorder, is an “extremely rare phenomenon of persons who desire the amputation of one or more healthy limbs or who desire a paralysis.” As you might suspect, some WPATH members are in favor of enabling this destructive behavior. One WPATH commenter suggested that people suffering from BIID received "hostile" treatment from the medical community, many of whom would recommend psychiatric care over amputation. Apparently, telling people not to chop off perfectly healthy limbs is now considered "violence."

3.Trans surgeries on patients with severe mental illnesses

WPATH claims to operate off of a principle known as "informed consent," which requires doctors to inform patients of the risks associated with a procedure. It also requires patients be in a clear state of mind to comprehend those risks. However, this rule is taken very lightly among many WPATH members. When one of the so-called "gender experts" asked about the ethicality of giving hormones to a patient already diagnosed with several major mental illnesses, they were met with a tidal wave of backlash from their "enlightened" colleges.

4.Non-standard procedures, such as “nullification” and other experimental, abominable surgeries

If you have never heard of "nullification" until now, consider yourself lucky. Nullification is the removal of all genitals, intending to create a sort of genderless person, or a eunuch. But that's just the beginning. Some WPATH doctors admitted in these chatlogs that they weren't afraid to get... creative. They seemed willing to create "custom" genitals for these people that combine elements of the two natural options.

5.Experimental, untested, un-researched, use of carcinogenic drugs 

Finasteride is a drug used to treat BPH, a prostate condition, and is known to increase the risk of high-grade prostate cancer as well as breast cancer. Why is this relevant? When a WPATH doctor asked if anyone had used Finasteride "to prevent bottom growth," which refers to the healthy development of genitals during puberty. The answer from the community was, "That's a neat idea, someone should give it a go."

If your state isn’t on this list, it begs the question... why?

The 2020 election exposed a wide range of questionable practices, much of which Glenn covered in a recent TV special. A particularly sinister practice is the use of private money to fund the election. This money came from a slew of partisan private sources, including Mark Zuckerberg, entailed a host of caveats and conditions and were targeted at big city election offices— predominantly democratic areas. The intention is clear: this private money was being used to target Democrat voters and to facilitate their election process over their Republican counterparts.

The use of private funds poses a major flaw in the integrity of our election, one which many states recognized and corrected after the 2020 election. This begs the question: why haven't all states banned private funding in elections? Why do they need private funding? Why don't they care about the strings attached?

Below is the list of all 28 states that have banned private funding in elections. If you don't see your state on this list, it's time to call your state's election board and demand reform.

POLL: Was Malaysia Flight 370 taken by a WORMHOLE?

NurPhoto / Contributor | Getty Images

It's hard to know what's real and what's fake anymore.

With the insanity that seems to grow every day, it is becoming more and more difficult to tell what's true and what's not, what to believe, and what to reject. Anything seems possible.

That's why Glenn had Ashton Forbes on his show, to explore the fringe what most people would consider impossible. Forbes brought Glenn a fascinating but far-out theory that explains the decade-old disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 along with riveting footage that supposedly corroborates his story. Like something out of a sci-fi novel, Forbes made the startling claim that Flight 370 was TELEPORTED via a U.S. military-made wormhole! As crazy as that sounds, the video footage along with Forbes' scientific research made an interesting, if not compelling case.

But what do you think? Do you believe that the U.S. Government can create wormholes? Did they use one to abduct Flight 370? Is the government hiding futuristic tech from the rest of the world? Let us know in the poll below:

Does the military have the capability to create wormholes?

Is the U.S. military somehow responsible for what happened to Malaysia Flight 370?

Is the military in possession of technology beyond what we believe to be possible?

Do you think American military tech is ahead of the other superpowers?

Do you think there would be negative consequences if secret government technology was leaked?
