Glenn: "The United States is the biggest wuss on the planet"

The Jordanian king has taken swift action in the wake of the Islamic State's murder of a Jordanian pilot, executing two prisoners and quoting Clint Eastwood. The White House, on the other hand, continues to falter when it comes to taking any kind of action against Islamic extremism. Glenn reacted to the news on radio this morning.

Read the rough transcript below:

Glenn: Yesterday, we posted the video of -- of the Jordanian pilot being burned to death. And I -- I recommended that the world watch this video. I thought it was important for people to see this video so you know exactly who we're dealing with.

And if you watch the video, I couldn't get my wife to watch it. But if you watch the video, you saw something that was remarkable. One, you saw a lead-up of about three or four minutes that was worth watching in and of itself. Just, this is not the execution part, but they made this remarkable movie, and it shows truly that these people are very sophisticated and they understand Joseph Goebbels. They understand propaganda.

So that's the first part. Then once it gets into the execution. They march this guy out. They have doused him in gasoline. And they march him out into this -- almost this -- looks almost like a bullring in a way. They march him out into this -- into this ring, and the soldiers are all around in formation in a circle around this cage. They march him out. They put him in the cage.

Then in ceremonial fashion, they light a torch and they hit the ground. And in high speed photography, you see that flame slowly reaching the cage, and then it sets the cage on fire, and he begins to burn.

Then if you make it through that part, it is truly one of the most horrific things you've ever seen. If you make it through that part, then they put him out. After he dies and you see his body cook and he begins to almost just become a statue and he rises up a bit and then he falls back. And he's completely dead, but they need to put it back. Then they bring a bulldozer. And I couldn't figure this one out yesterday.

I thought, what is that all about? That's the way you're going to end this? They take a bulldozer full of rubble, huge stones, like, just like construction wreckage, and they take that, and they put it over the cage and they dump it on and the cage collapses under the weight of these stones. And through the stones and the rubble, they put him out.

Today, I want to explain why they did that. But I want you to know that these guys, listen to the president of the United States. This has nothing to do with Islam. This has nothing to do can W the Koran. Right?

Are we all clear on that?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Stu, Jeffy, you clear on this. This has nothing to do with Islam. This has nothing to do with the Islam.

STU: Sure. Yeah.

GLENN: Good.

STU: There you go.

GLENN: You got it?

So here is the story from the newspaper in Pakistan called The Dawn. And they have explained why this happened. It's not for Americans to understand or anybody in the West. We shouldn't pay attention to any of this. It's called -- and I'm probably mispronouncing this -- a qisa. Q-I-S-A-S. Qisas. The Koran provides two options to deal with somebody who is found guilty of intentional murder: Qisas. Whether he or she has to be killed in the manner that the victim was murder and forgiveness by the heirs of the victim.

So what was this guy's crime? This guy's crime was that he was a pilot and -- because it's against the Koran to burn bodies. You can't cremate bodies. So it's against the Koran to light a body -- a Muslim on fire. So what are they doing? Qisas. According to the Koran. What they did was they looked at his crime. He was a pilot. He was firing rockets. He was killing children and burning them with their rockets. And the rubble of the buildings fell and killed others.

So that's exactly what they did. They put him in a cage, and they lit him on fire, just like his rockets were lighting children on fire. And the rubble to put him out at the end was to signify the buildings collapsing on people.

PAT: So that he was killed in the manner that he killed, supposedly.

GLENN: Exactly right. So that's why they executed him that way.

PAT: But, again, it has nothing to do with Islam. Has nothing to do with the Koran?

GLENN: Nothing. Nothing.

PAT: I get so sick of these bigots that is it has something to do with Islam.

GLENN: That they're religious in nature.

PAT: Come on. They're secular people.

GLENN: This is a very secular organization.

PAT: Very secular.

GLENN: And that they're following some dictate in the Koran is ridiculous.

PAT: They're more secular than a Moose Lodge. They're like the Rotary Club, sort of. That's how secular these guys are. You can't get any more secular than ISIL. You just can't.

GLENN: What does the I stand for?

PAT: Islam.

GLENN: All right.

PAT: Had nothing to do -- just a name they came up with. They liked the sound of the word. That's all.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: Could have been just as well, could have been Rotary Club.

GLENN: Moose Lodge.

PAT: It doesn't matter.

GLENN: Right. Sure. Sure. So there you go.

Now, the Jordanian king has quoted Clint Eastwood. Now, of thing this. The Jordanians are getting tough on this. The United States is the biggest wuss on the planet. We have no respect. There's no one who fears us. There's no one who respects us anymore. The Jordanians quoted Clint Eastwood.

PAT: Yeah, they believe it to be -- they wouldn't say exactly which quote it was, but they believe it to be this one.

CLINT: Any man I see out there, I'm going to kill him. And if the son of a bitch takes a shot at me, not only will I kill him, I'll kill his wife, all of his friends, burn his damn house down.

PAT: Yeah, that's amazing if King Abdullah really did say that. Because --

GLENN: Well, they have confirmed that he did quote Unforgiven.

PAT: Yes. Yes.

GLENN: So what's more amazing to me is that we are told, we're too cowboyish. We don't want to be cowboys. You can't be cowboys. That was the complaint on George Bush. He's just a cowboy. He's just going in there as a cowboy. And nobody respects cowboys. Nobody -- you can't go over to the Middle East and be a cowboy. Here's King Abdullah actually quoting the most famous cowboy in Hollywood.

PAT: Uh-huh. Now, we don't quote cowboys. We're nothing like that.

GLENN: No.

PAT: We're not ready to kill anyone.

GLENN: No, no.

PAT: We want to -- talk them to sleep and make them calm again.

GLENN: And make sure they understand that we have no problem with Islam and that they aren't following Islam. That's what we want to make sure that they understand. By the way, guys, you know you're not following Islam. Right?

I know. I know. I know. You're actually following the Koran word-for-word. Now, we used to do those things 1,000 years ago with our scriptures. But what we did was we had a reformation. You guys haven't had one yet. So you're still following word-for-word your Koran. But I want you to know, guys, before you burn somebody else to death, I want you to know, you have nothing to do with Islam.

[laughter]

PAT: I don't think we're convincing them of that. They seem to feel like they do. But King Abdullah, according to -- I think this is the -- this is according to Duncan Hunter Jr. who has been communicating with him. And Duncan Hunter said, he's angry. They're starting more sorties tomorrow than they've ever had. They're starting tomorrow. The only problem they're going to have is running out of fuel and bullets. He's ready to get it on. He really is. It reminded me of how we were after 9/11. We were ready to give it to them. So that's apparently what the Jordanians are preparing for right now. And they said it's going to be a war to destroy these guys. We won't say that.

We don't come anywhere near that.

GLENN: No, we want to dismantle their infrastructure.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: The Jordanians -- don't mess with the Jordanians, man. They slaughtered the Palestinians. Slaughtered them in 1968.

PAT: That's when the Palestinians were conducting their terror strikes against the Jordanians. And they didn't seem to react well to that. They didn't appreciate that.

GLENN: Nope. You want to talk about the Holocaust that the Israelites are causing. The Jordanians slaughtered the Palestinians.

Now, meanwhile, we have the king of Jordan quoting an American cowboy, and Obama yesterday met with American Muslims about anti-Muslim discrimination.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: So he was -- while Jordan was talking about going after ISIS, our president was talking about going after Americans who might be discriminating against Muslims.

PAT: This is what happens every time. Every time, we turn this around --

GLENN: On us. Every time. It's why America has lost her way. Because we keep being told we're a bad group of people. We're not a bad group of people. We're not. We're good people. We just need to stop being told we're such bad people because it doesn't ring true to us.

And I warn you, the longer you're told you're bad people, the longer you accept being told you're bad people, the more likely you will become a bad people.

PAT: Yeah. And it is --

GLENN: We will become a very bad nation if we allow them to convince us that that's who we are.

PAT: And you're right. It's pretty ironic that on the same day that Jordanian's king is quoting Clint Eastwood movies, the president reiterates the administration's commitment to safeguarding civil rights to Muslims through hate crimes prosecutions and civil enforcement actions. What?

GLENN: Okay. I want to make sure everybody understands that I'm -- you take it out -- of course, we're against that. Of course, we're against that.

PAT: Of course, we're against discrimination.

GLENN: But even more closely to the point, while the Jordanian king is saying, I'm going to kill them. We're going over there and we're going to stop them. And having righteous outrage --

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: What does Josh Earnest, what's his reaction about being asked, do you agree with the execution of the two terrorists by the Jordanians?

VOICE: -- yesterday say, you know, we're here, we support Jordan. They're a key member of the coalition. They make this decision overnight. And you can't say whether or not you support the executions?

JOHN: It is certainly possible for us to continue to support and stand with the people of Jordan at this very difficult time. You know, clearly their nation, in the same way that we all are, is shocked and appalled at this terrible act of violence that was captured on video by ISIL and released to the world. And the United States stands with our friends in Jordan as they confront this awful, barbaric act.

But as it relates to decisions that are carried out by the Jordanian justice system, I refer you to them.

PAT: He's always referring.

JOHN: I don't have the -- a working knowledge of the Jordanian justice system to render an opinion on this. All I know is that the individuals that we're discussing here were individuals who were convicted of terrorism-related crimes. They were individuals who were sentenced to death. And these were individuals who had been serving time on death row. So --

PAT: I mean -- and then they move on to another subject.

GLENN: Let's be clear, yes, they were terrorists. If the Jordanian law says execute them, we're fine with their execution. We stand behind the Jordanians. This mealy mouthed wishy-washy apologist is going to be the death of us. We're headed towards war. What I've been warning about is upon is now.

11 things you can do to help stop the Great Reset

Photo by Arthur Franklin on Unsplash

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.

Kim Iversen, journalist, YouTuber, and host of "The Kim Iversen Show," reacted to Glenn Beck's appearance last week on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" by conceding that, while the subject of Beck's new book, "The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism" might at first sound "a little bit loony," closer analysis confirms "this isn't such a crazy conspiracy theory after all."

"Glenn Beck was on Tucker Carlson's show last week touting what has been called a right-wing conspiracy theory and discussing his new book, 'The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism'," began Iverson on The Hill's "Rising."

"Well, maybe that all sounds a little bit loony — and believe me, I do think Glenn Beck tends to be a loon," she quipped. "But, maybe this isn't such a crazy conspiracy theory after all. And after seeing everything we've seen with the governments enacting all sorts of authoritarian controls and many other conspiracy theories coming true, maybe there's something to be concerned about. So, what is the Great Reset? The name even sounds conspiratorial, but believe it or not, it's a real thing."

Iverson went on to explain exactly who is behind the Great Reset, what their agenda entails, how they are using the COVID-19 pandemic to "to rebuild society in a way the global elites see best fit."

"You'll own nothing and you will be happy: That's what they're saying," Iverson explained. "And with inflation sky high and no signs of it slowing down, they might be right. We are on our way to becoming a nation of renters, but don't worry it's nothing to fear ... don't worry, everything is being done under the premise that this is all ... being done for our own good, the benefit of a collective society, and we will be happy," she added sarcastically.

Iverson concluded by asking, "Who thinks it's a good idea that a bunch of corporate millionaire and billionaires and world leaders are getting together and coming up with what's best for we the little people? I mean, who thinks that that's a really good idea? And who thinks that they are going to be doing it for our benefit? But, of course they're going to frame it like 'Oh, this is good for you. You're going to rent. You'll own nothing and you'll be happy. Don't worry about it' ... When you look at the actual list of partners with the World Economic Forum, they control everything. They control media. They control health. They control business. They control everything, and so then it does become, how do we people fight against that?"
