How bad is the corruption in the State Department?

Last night, Glenn was joined by TheBlaze’s Sara Carter to discuss the arrest of Senior State Department official Daniel Rosen. Rosen was arrested Tuesday afternoon for allegedly soliciting a juvenile. How far does the corruption in the State Department go? Sara reveals some of the shocking details she has uncovered as part of the ‘For The Record’ team with Glenn.

Glenn: I want to say a special note to our team in Ohio, our documentary film team for TheBlaze. They are unsung heroes of this network. You don’t really ever hear them or see them. Somebody is always up front presenting the material that they work long and hard year round, and these guys, I have to tell you, depression medication was made for them because they see the worst of the worst and then have to try to figure out how to present it.

Sara Carter is the senior investigative correspondent now for TheBlaze and For the Record. She broke the story last night of Daniel Rosen on TheBlaze. She joins us now from Washington, D.C. Sara, this is not the first time you have worked with our sources on Daniel Rosen. You knew about this guy for quite some time.

Sara: Yeah, you know, this goes back years, Glenn, maybe even more than ten years when I was working with sources overseas that were connected with State Department. There was a lot of concern among many of my sources, some of them whistleblowers inside USCIS which is United States Immigration and Citizenship Services and other departments that there was extensive corruption within the State Department. A lot of these men like Daniel Rosen who was trying to solicit a minor would go overseas and have, according to the sources, sex with minors, solicit prostitution, use of illegal drugs, and you’ve got to think, Glenn, these are the people, just like you talked about, that are negotiating with foreign governments, that are the liaisons between the United States, the information that they are receiving and also our intelligence agencies like the CIA and the NSA. So, this isn’t the first time I’ve heard about Rosen and others like him.

Glenn: Right, and if we know it, certainly our adversaries know this. Now, I want to talk specifically about Rosen because this is rampant in the State Department. There’s a lot of this going on. We have heard horrifying stories of sex with underage boys and underage girls in foreign countries, just truly evil, despicable things that are pushed under the carpet at the State Department. It’s my understanding that the State Department did watch For the Record last year and were kind of shaken a bit by it because somebody is finally onto them, but this guy, he is a counterintelligence guy. So, tell me the danger that he would pose to us had he not been caught by one of our people, instead he was caught, you know, if he would’ve been caught by somebody else.

Sara: Well, we don’t even know. I mean, he’s been in this position for quite some time, since 2008. He is the Counterterrorism Director of the State Department. He is our liaison to our other intelligence agencies when he’s working overseas. How do we know? We really don’t know yet if while he was overseas he was soliciting minors, if other intelligence, foreign intelligence networks gathered that information, and he could have been leaking this information.

Rosen had the highest level security clearance that you can get in the United States. This top-secret security clearance requires a polygraph examination. I am stunned that he actually passed his polygraphs, because one of the questions, and James Clapper talked about this the other day, is have you ever committed a crime? So, it doesn’t say were you ever charged with a crime, have you ever committed a crime, so we would have had to answer that question under a poly by a professional polygraph person.

These people hold onto their jobs, and it’s unbeknownst to me how they can do it. You’re right, this is a direct national security threat. You know, he is not the only one. Other people within the State Department, other whistleblowers have brought forth charges. A lot of these charges are under seal right now, Glenn. We’re not allowed to talk about them. We have heard that they are being held right now. Congress can go ahead and investigate if they so choose. They have not done this yet, but I can tell you this, it doesn’t stop with Rosen.

Glenn: Why, why haven’t they chosen?

Sara: That is the same question I keep asking members of Congress, and I never get a direct answer.

Glenn: Could I ask you this, Sara, could a guy like this, let’s say somebody comes into the country, and he is earmarked a terrorist of the highest level, could he get him in and then remove that earmark from his record, just have that disappear, and all of a sudden all of the stuff that we had gathered on that, let’s say it was a Saudi citizen, is that possible, that this guy could have been responsible?

Sara: Yeah, Glenn, I’m going to tell you that’s not only possible, I believe it’s happened in the past. I was privy to an alien file which was a document that was a screenshot from the Kansas City, Missouri processing center. This is where we give people visas. You know, they of the list of people that are applying for visas. I actually saw documentation that showed that a contractor was changing people’s A-Files from visitor visas and student visas to full citizenship. That’s impossible to do unless you have access to these systems. So yes, I don’t know about Rosen, I don’t have evidence that Rosen did this, but it is definitely possible. This is the seriousness of these charges. Not only is it abhorrent behavior that we look at it, and it’s inhumane, it’s wrong, it’s despicable.

Glenn: No, it’s evil. It’s evil. When I heard the charges, not just necessarily from Rosen, I’ve heard them on the other charges, and I know you’ve seen them as well because you guys have been investigating this for over a year. I mean, honestly, Sara, it makes me say there’s no way for our country to survive. If we put up with this kind of evil in our people’s name, and we are abusing children, underage children, there’s no way we can survive. I don’t believe in my country anymore, because if the State Department won’t do something, who will? They look the other way.

Sara: I’ll tell you who will, well, but the Fairfax County Sheriff’s Department should be applauded here, and I’m going to tell you why they were able to get Rosen. They were able to nab their guy because they did not inform the State Department that they were conducting this investigation. This is an independent law enforcement. This is what we need to look for, our independent law enforcement.

The Child Exploitation Unit at the Fairfax County Sheriff’s Department said we’re going to go after this guy. We have evidence that this guy is soliciting minors. We don’t care if he’s the counterterrorism director. In fact, we care more that he is, and we’re going to find out if this guy’s doing this. When they brought him into questioning yesterday, they picked him up at his home, they took him away. They were questioning him. They had a warrant, and they took his other devices, because one of the questions that I asked and they haven’t been able to answer me or maybe they just can’t right now, was was he using government devices to contact these children? Was he in contact with pedophiles? Are there others in his department that are emailing with him? They weren’t able to answer all these questions.

Glenn: Sara, when you have a culture that will overlook things like this, these people start to congregate. I mean, I can’t imagine the rat’s nest, and Clinton knows about it. Obama has to know about it. Kerry knows about it. They have to know about it, and they look the other way.

Sara: That’s right. So many charges have been dropped on very significant senior people in the State Department or investigations are ongoing. I know there’s an investigation against the U.S. Ambassador to Belgium, allegations that he was soliciting minors, and that is an ongoing investigation, and they returned him back to his post in Belgium. So yes, you’re absolutely right, they are turning the other way, and you made a very good point. I talked to some intelligence sources before coming in to talk to you today. This is exactly how things are set up, so that when you have corruptible people in high-level positions, you can use that against them to get your way because now you have evidence. So, not only can the bad guys, but the bad guys within your own government are using them as well.

Glenn: Yep. Okay, real quick because I’ve got less than a minute, two things: Have you talked to anybody on Capitol Hill today that was like, “Oh my gosh, this is great news, and we can go for it”? And two, how are the whistleblowers? How are their moods today? Is this good news for them? Are they still being hammered?

Sara: You know, Rick Higbie was a whistleblower that will be in tonight’s episode of For the Record, a long investigation with our team in Ohio. He is suffering from some serious medical conditions right now. He hasn’t been able to go back to work. He’s on emergency medical leave. Otherwise, he would have been with you today. His daughter, Logan, suffered another seizure last week, but he said he is not giving up this fight.

Glenn: They’ve destroyed him.

Sara: They really did. They destroyed him and his family, but guess what, they haven’t destroyed his spirit, so he’s still moving forward. And as for Capitol Hill, yes, I heard a senior senator is looking into this. He has information now, and he is considering taking this to an investigative level on the Hill. So, this is very, very important news, and, you know, we just hope everyone watches the show tonight. I think that for those who haven’t seen it and for those that have, this is just going to show you how Pandora’s Box opened, and this is just the tip of the iceberg. There is so much more to this story.

Glenn: It is. Thank you, Sara. I appreciate it. Thanks for all of your hard work, and thanks to for everybody at For the Record. I will tell you, Sara is right when she said it’s just the tip of the iceberg. I was disappointed a little bit in this episode because I know the things that we are also investigating that were not in the episode, and I’m telling you, you will lose your faith in your country.

We must stand together on this, and we must stand to do the right thing. Pray for your country, and pray that good, decent Americans stand up to stop the nightmares that are being perpetrated with our flag and our people’s name in the room.

When Biden was given the keys to the Oval Office in January 2021, gas was $2.50 a gallon and the inflation rate was 1.4%. Today gas is at $3.32 a gallon and the inflation rate is at 7% ... and STILL RISING. These are just 12 months of numbers, but we’re clearly in a worrying decline. While the economy has opened up more post-COVID, it’s not just getting worse — we’re going IN REVERSE.

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard (and the very top of his studio ceiling) to explain what’s happening to inflation and why it’s so hard for your family to afford basic goods and groceries. It’s not “corporate greed,” as Democrats have been telling you. The Biden administration wants to continue to spend trillions of dollars to “reinvent capitalism,” but that’s in addition to the trillions that are being pumped out IN THE SHADOWS.

Glenn exposes what the Fed has been doing behind closed doors and shows us the tidal wave that’s about to hit. He’s looked at the numbers, and they're frightening. Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” gives advice to Americans who want to protect their checking and savings accounts before it’s too late.

The stock markets have taken a nosedive in the biggest downtrend since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. But that's nothing compared to what's coming thanks to our government's embrace of modern monetary theory, warned BlazeTV's Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It really is important that you understand what's happening to us," Glenn stated. "Modern monetary theory is truly the [fuel] ... for the great reset. It is the idea that we can print as much money and spend as much money as we want," he explained.

"Then the next step is to release the Federal Reserve digital currency and make payments by other currencies [including cryptocurrencies] illegal," he continued. "And you're seeing it happen now in real time. Why would they do this? Because you cannot print this kind of money without having absolute control over how it is spent."

Glenn broke down the steps powerful political organizations — like the Federal Reserve — will take to end currency competition and enact a Federal digital dollar, which will allow for the government to have complete control over how we spend our money.

"This is what's coming. This is coming quickly, and events will make it move faster. For instance, why is Joe Biden basically giving Ukraine to Russia? He's giving it to them. He he knows Russia's not afraid of him. Putin knows that [Biden] is not going to do anything ... neither is NATO. They're not going to do anything," Glenn said.

"It's because war resets everything. War is the best great resetter. Changes boundaries. It changes borders. It changes laws. It changes societies. It changes currencies. It changes everything. And in the end you just want the war to stop. And so you you accept whatever it is the terms are that you're going to have to live under now. We're in very, very dangerous times. The only way to survive this is to know why they are dangerous times."

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.
