UPDATED: Heed the warning of Cyprus: "Deepen your preparation and keep it to yourself"

On tonight's TV show, Glenn went into further detail on the letter to his kids, what you can do to prepare for tough economic times, and why you needed to be careful and discreet on your plans:

Original Story:

News broke over the weekend that as part of the bailout of the banks in the small, European country of Cyprus, ordinary bank depositors would have to pay a “haircut” tax of at least 6.75%.

In other words, if you managed to save $10,000 in the bank, already having paid all the various taxes that hit your paycheck before you get to deposit it, you’re going to lose $675 of that to help pay for the bailout.

The unprecedented penalty meant that everyday Cypriots would have to give up a percentage of whatever they had saved in the back. Unsurprisingly, there was soon a run on the banks and ATMs as people tried to get their money out. But as Glenn warned on radio this morning, the real danger is that this unheard of penalty could be placed on other, larger European countries who are facing a growing and ongoing debt crisis.

“The announcement was intentionally made late Friday or early Saturday and buried in an avalanche of details,” Glenn said. “The only coverage of this issue when it came out, the only coverage was on Twitter. “

When the news started to spread that the bailout deal could happen, Cypriots started to go to the ATMs to get the money out before the tax hit them, but quickly found they couldn’t get their cash out of the banks.

“Even though the tax is not yet supposed law because the government of Cyprus hasn't voted on it yet, the people who tried to pull their money out of ATMs or banks over the weekend found they couldn't do it,” Glenn said.

“Now think of that. There is no law, but the people could not access their accounts and take their money out of the banks. Taking money from people is really bad, but elections have consequences. And if you elected these guys to represent you and they are going to vote for it and you don't stop them, elections have consequences.”

The taxes are being imposed by the EU, the IMF, and the government of Cyprus.

“But here's the real nasty stuff: You're asking the people who played by the rules, you're asking the people who lived within their means to bail out the big banks that didn't.”

“Now here's the lessons you should learn from this: You cannot print your way out of an eventual day of reckoning, a day of reckoning is coming. There is nothing that's going to avoid the appointment with you and the Good Lord. There is also, you cannot violate fundamental universal truths, fundamental economics, fundamental mathematics, you cannot break universal truth and expect not to pay the consequences. We are living in a world that has gone insane. They are changing the math to make it work for us to be able to... whatever it is we do. Whatever it is we want. We want more free healthcare, we want more this, we want more that, we want to fight wars. We want to bail out all the other countries. We want to save the banks. We want to cure this disease and this country. We want to redistribute our wealth. We want to make sure that the poor people in Africa don't struggle because we're so rich. I got news for ya: You cannot have it all. You cannot do it all. And our day of reckoning will come,” Glenn continued.

“The tax, however, is intended to send a very important message, and here it is, and it's not meant just for the people of Cyprus. It is meant for you as well, and here's the message: That money doesn't belong to you.”

After reading about the news of the Cyprus bailout, Glenn wrote a letter to his family and shared some pieces of it with the audience. In the letter, Glenn encouraged his family members to have thirty days cash on hand to deal with anything that might come up. Cash to cover food, rent, travel and other expenses.

“If you don't have 30 days cash on hand, if you don't have an emergency plan of how your family moves or functions in the case of a banking shutdown, in case of a seizure situation, in case of a national emergency, if you are not, A, positioned in a place where you are surrounded by like minded people, you might want to reconsider this. If you are someone who does not have enough cash, you have to go to the ATM over the weekend or you're not going to be able to eat, I would suggest you look at your food situation and you look at your cash situation,” Glenn said.

“Last night I wrote to my family, and I want to discuss with you that I believe that you need to be you need to understand what Immanuel Kant said one time, and I only remember it because it was such a foreign idea to me at the time. This is back in the Nineties, that I pondered for a few weeks what the world must have been like that would make a man say something like this: There are many things that I believe that I shall never say, but I shall never say the things that I do not believe. What kind of world does it have to be, thought an American, Glenn Beck, in 1995, what kind of world do you have to live in where you are afraid to say things that you truly believe? Well, we are here now,” Glenn said.

“The other thing is something that General Anthony Wayne said in a letter to George Washington written at 2:00 in the morning: Your officers and your men behaved like men determined to be free,” Glenn said.

“The world is coming undone and the world is splitting into different camps. Those who understand individual liberty, that it is not about the collective, that the only way to truly bring the collective up is for individuals to empower themselves and to behave like men determined to be free. When you understand what that means, it means that you are someone who obeys the law, that you are somebody who does not pick the pocket of your neighbor, that does not, does not push off responsibility to others, that you take responsibility for your action and you insist that those around you also take honest accounting and responsibility for what they have done. And that's the way you get to be free.”

“But the other group that the world is splitting off into is one that will take anything. They are a drowning swimmer and they will pull you under the water.”

Glenn said that while people need to start living their lives as men determined to be free, they must also use discretion in what they say to others.

“Please, do not tell anyone. Do not panic. There's time, but this is a warning that you should see. Deepen your preparation and keep it to yourself,” Glenn said.

Chances are, you've noticed that many large companies have decided to become woke activists, despite the fact that alienating half your customer base is a terrible business strategy.

This woke shift isn't being driven by the usual market forces. It's the Great Reset's ESG score system at work, Glenn Beck said on "GlennTV." Under the “environmental, social, and governance” score system, companies will no longer make decisions based on what you, the consumer, want. Now, it's all about what those in power deem society should want. And it's not just businesses that are affected, he explained.

11 things you can do to help stop the Great Reset

The foundation of the American way of life is freedom from tyranny, which can only exist in a nation that defends the rights, powers, and property of individuals and families. Over the past two centuries, the greatest threats to liberty have come from governments, both foreign and domestic. And from the beaches of Normandy to the civil rights movement of the 1960s, Americans have repeatedly conquered the challenges placed before them by those seeking to extinguish or limit individual rights.

However, over the past few years, a new, potentially catastrophic danger has emerged, but not primarily from the halls of Congress or state capitols. This threat to freedom has largely emanated from the board rooms of the world’s wealthiest, most powerful corporations, large financial institutions, central banks, and international organizations such as the United Nations and World Economic Forum.

In an attempt to secure vast amounts of wealth and influence over society, corporate CEOs, bankers, and investors, working closely with key government officials, have launched a unified effort to impose environmental, social, and governance (ESG) standards on most of the industrialized global economy. ESG standards are also referred to as “sustainable investment” or “stakeholder capitalism.” According to a report by KPMG, thousands of companies, located in more than 50 countries, already have ESG systems in place, including 82 percent of large companies in the United States.

ESG standards are designed to create a “great reset of capitalism” and to “revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions.” ESG supporters plan to enact these radical changes by using ESG schemes to alter how businesses and investments are evaluated, so that instead of focusing on the quality of goods and services, profits, and other traditional economic metrics, companies — including financial institutions — are evaluated largely on their commitment to social justice and environmental causes and then assigned scores so that companies can be compared, rewarded, or potentially punished.

Supporters of the movement for a Great Reset also plan on using technology to limit free speech and privacy rights, and they support creating vast new government programs that are designed to transform the Western economy via the Green New Deal, European Green Deal, a federal jobs guarantee, and basic income programs.

Together, the proposals that make up the Great Reset represent the most serious threat to freedom in the West since the fall of the Soviet Union and perhaps since World War II. But there is hope. We can stop the Great Reset, but only if we act quickly and with great conviction.

Below are 11 steps you can take to push back against the Great Reset. These steps represent a powerful bottom-up, grassroots approach to the Great Reset’s top-down plan to remake the world. Although many of these steps won’t be easy for everyone to take, they are essential for ensuring that our children and grandchildren will grow up in a world that protects the rights of individuals and empowers families, rather than wealthy special interests, financial institutions, and large corporations.

1. Live Not by Lies: The time for remaining quiet is over. When you hear or see something that you know to be false, speak up. Be kind, generous, and compassionate, but do not, under any circumstances, allow lies to infect your life. Further, do not support organizations, publications, politicians, schools, or any other institutions that regularly promote false claims.

2. Buy Local: The reason the Great Reset is so powerful is because so many of us have become totally dependent on large multinational corporations. They can be easily manipulated in a way that small, local businesses cannot. Learn to buy local, whenever possible, even if it means spending more money on your purchases. Yes, big corporations offer conveniences and low prices that many small businesses can’t compete with, but those benefits come with a great cost: your freedom.

3. Bank Local: Big financial institutions and banks are driving much of the Great Reset movement. They have started to use their incredible wealth and power to alter society by financing only those businesses who agree to the terms of the Great Reset. This problem is going to get worse, so it’s important to find local banks and credit unions you can trust and who refuse to utilize ESG scores and other discriminatory schemes.

4. Support Local Farms: If you live in an area that has local farms and farmer’s markets, consider buying as many of your groceries as possible from farmers. In the future, food production and distribution are going to change dramatically. It’s important that you support local farmers and build relationships with individuals who can provide you with the goods you need in a time of crisis. One of our main goals must be to make local communities as self-sufficient as possible, and that cannot happen unless we support local farms.

5. Be Vocal: After starting to shop and bank locally, be sure to tell big financial institutions and corporations why they have lost your business. They need to know that their decisions have serious consequences.

6. Run for Local Government: Local and state governments will soon be our most important defense against the Great Reset. Consider running for your local school board, zoning board, or even for a state legislative office. If you don’t feel qualified for these positions, find someone who shares your values and help them run for office. If we don’t have control of our local governments, we won’t be able to halt the Great Reset.

7. Demand That Your State Pass Laws Against ESG Scores: In America, states have a tremendous amount of power to slow the Great Reset and protect their citizens from abuses by large corporations, banks, and international institutions. They can do this by passing laws that make the use of ESG metrics and other, similar systems by financial institutions illegal, when used as a precondition for banking services, financing, investment, etc. ESG scores are, by definition, discriminatory and should be made illegal by state lawmakers who care about protecting their citizens’ rights.

8. Make Responsible Spending a Key Issue for Politicians: In recent years, politicians on the ideological left and right have totally abandoned responsible fiscal policy in favor of vast money printing and loose monetary policies. The many trillions of dollars that have been “printed” in recent years put our economy at risk and are being used to fuel the Great Reset. Without these trillions of dollars of printed money, it would be exceptionally difficult for governments and financial institutions to buy off corporations.

9. Organize Anti-Great Reset Groups: No matter where you live, there are Americans in your community who do not support the Great Reset — Republicans, Democrats, and independents alike. Find like-minded neighbors and organize a local, peaceful resistance. Find people you can trust and agree to support one another when times get tough. Now, more than ever, we need to develop dependable communities.

10. Buy Property and Diversify: Property ownership is going to become increasingly more difficult in the months and years to come. It’s important that you work with a qualified financial adviser to help you figure out the best way to buy property and diversify your investments. Buying hard assets, including real estate and precious metals, could be a good way for you to protect against the Great Reset and a possible financial collapse. If you already own property, resist selling it to large corporations and financial institutions, whenever possible. (This is not financial advice, and I’m not a financial adviser. Talk to an expert you trust before taking action!)

11. Make the Great Reset a Litmus Test for Politicians: Before supporting politicians, find out if they know what the Great Reset is and what they plan to do to stop it. If they aren’t familiar with the Great Reset or don’t have a plan to halt it, then demand that they learn about the Great Reset and develop a proposal to prevent it. Political leaders who refuse to take the Great Reset seriously do not deserve your support. This is the key issue of our generation.

Scott Quiner was transferred over the weekend to a hospital in Texas after doctors in Minnesota threated to terminate life support measures as he battled severe complications from COVID-19. Scott's wife, Anne Quiner, appealed to the courts for a restraining order to prevent the hospital from pulling the plug as she sought a new facility to provide medical care for her husband. Scott was unvaccinated when he tested positive for COVID-19 in late October, 2021.

Anne and her attorney Marjorie Holsten joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Thursday to describe their frantic efforts to halt the hospital's decision to turn off Scott's life support — allegedly because he was unvaccinated — and just how difficult it was to get him the medical treatment he needed.

"It was absolutely stunning," Holsten told Glenn. "[Anne] came in and she has this order, I saw the screenshot from the [online medical] chart that said [Scott] is basically scheduled for execution at noon the following day."

According to Holsten, the Minnesota hospital responded to her appeal for a restraining order by claiming that the "position" to keep Scott alive "is not supported by medical science or Minnesota law. As a result, Mercy will ask the court to issue an order that Mercy has the authority to discontinue Mr. Quiner's ventilator and proceed with his medical care plan."

"The 'medical care plan' was the plan to discontinue the ventilator at noon, which leads to death very shortly. So that was at 10 o'clock, but then at 11 o'clock, before the 12 o'clock execution, the judge did, in fact, sign an order saying the hospital is restrained from pulling the plug," she added.

Anne told Glenn that doctors in Texas were shocked by Scott's condition after he arrived from the Minnesota hospital. Not only had he been given dangerous drugs, he was also found to be “severely malnourished."

"The doctor [in Texas] spent two hours with Scott and when he came back out, he said, 'I don't know how he even made it, how he even survived that other hospital ... but I will do everything I can to try to save his life,'" Anne explained.

"And the doctor [in Texas] said Scott was the most undernourished patient he has ever seen," Holsten added.

"Glenn, we are first bringing this battle to the court of public opinion," Holsten continued. "What we are showing the world is that Scott was near death because of the protocols used in that [Minnesota] hospital, but now he is recovering. He is getting better.... Now, we're not planning a funeral, we're planning for his release."

The Great Reset is not just an elitist idea — it’s not even a socialist utopian concept. It’s a real-world fascist threat to every American from Wall Street to Main Street. It’s happening now in policies and cultural shifts big and small, obvious and subtle, from environmental promises to corporations going woke. But the mainstream media, global elites, and politicians brushed off the Great Reset as “nothing to see here.” Another myth they push: “The World Economic Forum is just a conference for elites who have no REAL power.”

Glenn Beck first exposed the Great Reset almost two years ago, and the globalist cries of "conspiracy theorist" soon followed. They said he believed the WEF was a “master cabal calling the shots from some evil underground lair.” But Glenn Beck never said that. Instead, he uncovered the true intentions of global leaders in finance and politics by simply highlighting their own words.

This week, the same global elites are doubling down on their agenda at the World Economic Forum’s Davos Agenda virtual event. But still, the global elites — like Twitter’s Jack Dorsey — are trying to downplay the WEF’s influence to stop people like us from interfering with their plans. The oligarchy will prosper in the new world order they’ve designed. You will not.

So Glenn unveils a master chalkboard based on his best-selling new book to outline the threats from globalists and why we must stop their agenda if we hope to keep the precious freedoms we still have.
