Why you should NEVER let the TSA scan your eye

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has slowly been incorporating new technology into its security lines for a while now, and now facial recognition programs at airports are one step closer to being widespread. In this clip, Glenn gives the latest news on the topic and he explains why you should NEVER let the government scan your eye…


Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: The TSA is expanding facial recognition programs, at major airports. They're going to national -- they're going to roll this out nationally soon. But the facial recognition program -- this is -- this is really, really bad. Do not give the government a scan of your eye!

There is nothing worse than giving them a scan -- that is more unique than your fingerprint. It gives more information about you, than your fingerprint.

And people are just like, yeah. But I'll get through the line quicker.

Oh, my gosh.

Don't do that. It's now being used in more than a dozen airports. Vacation, Denver, Dallas/Fort Worth, TSA says it's going to destroy most of the images. That's kind of like saying, mostly dead. They're going to destroy most of the images. Within a couple of weeks.

Uh-huh. I'm sure. Sure. Sure.

Sure. Let's watch for that. Because you are going to see in the next year. Hmm. Maybe two. But I think it's going to be this year.

You are going to see the beginning of a -- a tracking system. A global monitoring system, that is beyond your imagination.

We now have technology through low altitude satellites. Drones. We are -- we are on the precipice of not a square inch of earth, being unseen 24 hours a day.

Not a square inch of earth. They're going to start it in the biggest of cities. They already are doing it in China.

But now we have the computing power, and we have the photographic power of being able to monitor everything and link everything. At you see the movie State of Fear?

Who was in that?

It was Gene Hackman. And Will Smith, I think.

STU: That was Enemy of the State? Right?

GLENN: Enemy of the State. Thank you. Enemy of the State. Enemy of the State, if you saw that, I remember watching that and going, that technology doesn't exist, does it? The answer then was no. But the people in the Pentagon and the CIA they were like, hey. That's a pretty good idea.

STU: There's a fun toy.

GLENN: Yeah. And we are now building it. And there's probably no stopping it now. You know, unless we had Congress on our side. Which don't count on that one.

But that is extraordinarily dangerous.

STU: What part of that technology are you talking about, when you say --

GLENN: The -- the part of technology, that could -- what they're building now is low -- or low altitude satellites, in a string. That can monitor one place, all the time.

So it -- because the satellites move, you would need a string of them. So it's constantly trained on New York City. And can lock in on New York City.

Continually, 24 hours a day. And then, it will have parameters through the algorithm of, that's unusual. That's not right.

And it can -- you know, it can read your -- you know, the back of your credit card from space.

And the algorithm will say, something terrorist activity. Something illegal may be happening. And it can automatically gin down. Zoom in on any area. Alert the police. Alert the feds. Or it can zoom in, and if it can't get close enough, all through the algorithm, it will then start to use the local cameras, all the way to your cell phones.

And be able to see exactly what's going on, everywhere, in that area.

STU: So basically, constant monitoring.

GLENN: They're calling it the all-seeing eye. I wrote about it. It's called the eye of Moloch.

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: But that is now coming -- coming soon to a world near you.

STU: And even, I know you -- I think I understand what you meant by this. But you said, oh, this is definitely going to happen, unless Congress gets on our side. But even if Congress was a Congress that respected the Constitution, China's is not. Someone eventually will do this.

GLENN: No. Somebody will do this. And that is the excuse they all will use. Look, China will do it. So we better do it too. The problem is, once you have it, no one -- no one ever gives that power up.

No one gives that power up.

That's the problem with the Intel being so tied into the administration.

You know, when -- when you have the NSA gathering information on every American, their phone calls. Everything.

No president is going to say, no. We should shut that town.

Mr. President, Russia is doing it to the American people. China is doing it to the American people. We should at least know so we have the heads up. They're just never going to get rid of it. Never.

STU: Well, it's not paranoia, if they're really after you.

GLENN: Exactly. Exactly right.

STU: It's not only true. But also tag line for Enemy of the State.

GLENN: I have to watch that again.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I've been reading -- I've been reading up on it lately. I think it's called whammy. And it's a little terrifying. The stuff -- we talked about it for years. And we said, one of these days. Well, when I say one of these days, it could be in the next six months that these things begin to come online.

STU: I'm a little disturbed that if they're calling it Whammy, are they naming it after the creature that steals your points on Press Your Luck, the old game show?

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. You've figured it out!

STU: I know.


Modern Scottish Warrior Goes 'BRAVEHEART' on Elites | Neil Oliver | The Glenn Beck Podcast | Ep 171

Neil Oliver — a Scottish television presenter, historian, and author — is one of the courageous people willing to let his “no” mean “no.” At the height of his impressive career as a TV presenter, he realized the people promising the solutions to our problems are the same people responsible for them. But instead of bending the knee to the status quo, he became a modern “Braveheart” hero and defiantly said, “No,” to the tyranny of BLM, woke politics, and COVID lockdowns: “We're not extreme, THEY’RE extreme.” On this episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Glenn talks to Neil about the difficulties he has experienced ever since he began standing up for what's right and details how you can stand up as well. They also dive into Neil’s fiery reactions to BLM, the rewriting of history, and the odd phenomenon of “excess deaths.” On any and all of it, Neil’s stance could not be any clearer: “I just believe in freedom.”


Glenn Breaks Down Bodycam Footage from Paul Pelosi Attack | Friday Exclusive | Ep 248

The bodycam footage of the attack on Paul Pelosi was finally released — over two months after the altercation occurred. But first, on today's Friday Exclusive, Glenn flashes back to the original, now-deleted, NBC News report that left us with more questions than answers. Then, he breaks down the recently released bodycam footage that some of America's most powerful seemingly tried to keep from going public. Finally, Glenn asks, "Why was this footage not immediately released when it could have cleared up all the confusion and controversies?" The lack of credibility and trust throughout society is getting out of control, and the delayed release of this footage may make it all worse.


Debunking Outrageous LIES from the New Hulu Series, ‘The 1619 Project’ | Ep 247

Remember this quote from George Orwell’s “1984”? “Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.” The Left is trying to erase the truth of our past to control our lives NOW.

For example, did you know there was also a white, European slave trade? That Thomas Jefferson intended to get rid of slavery during America’s founding? That only two colonies voted against including the abolition of slavery in the Declaration of Independence? Glenn sets the record straight on some of the history forgotten by "The 1619 Project" — a “project” that evolved from “journalism” by Nikole Hannah-Jones of the New York Times into curriculum for school districts in all fifty states and into a documentary series airing on Hulu.

"The 1619 Project's" premise is that America was founded and built on slavery alone and continues to suffer because of this ultra-racist foundation. It dovetails perfectly with the critical race theory blanketing America’s education system, for which Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is being raked over the coals this week after blocking a high school Advanced Placement course on African-American studies.

"The 1619 Project" is a political agenda dressed up as history and gets so many historical facts absolutely WRONG. Glenn takes you into the American Journey Experience vault to reveal artifacts from one of the largest private collections of pilgrim and Jamestown history. He’s joined by Elijah O’Neal, the head of the education department at the American Journey Experience, who brings the evidence to debunk the LIES about America being pumped out in the news, in our classrooms, and now in our living rooms.


Biden sends Ukraine TANKS. Does he WANT war with Russia?

Why would President Biden send U.S. tanks to Ukraine? Tanks are an offensive tool, not a defensive one, and this latest move from Biden (and Europe) will only bring us one step closer to World War 3 with Russia. In this clip, Glenn explains why this decision makes NO SENSE...unless there’s a reason Biden and the far-left may actually WANT to engage in war. And as we face the ‘inevitable’ fall of the West, Glenn explains, there is one, big reason why several global superpowers may want world conflict to cover their tracks…
