Will the attacks on Trump propel him to the top of the GOP?

Progressives are jumping all over Donald Trump over comments he made about illegal immigrants during a presidential campaign event. Macy’s, Univision, and NBC Universal have all severed ties with the candidate and real estate mogul, and New York City officials have said they will review their contracts with The Donald. But amidst all the controversy, many polls are showing Trump near the top. Could all the negative attacks end up hurting him? Glenn has the story and reaction on radio.

Below is a rush transcript of the segment, it may contain errors:

GLENN: Can I just tell you something? I have lost complete faith in the American people. Just today, I went to two websites. I open up the website. And, you know, I go to the internet, and I first click on Drudge Report. And the Drudge Report has, Donald Trump surging in polls.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Okay. He's number one. Is he number one now in Ohio?

STU: No, he's number two, I think.

PAT: Two in Ohio.

GLENN: Behind Ben Carson? What I saw was a poll that said, Donald Trump, Ben Carson, and -- and then -- who was it? Scott Walker.

STU: Let's see.

GLENN: That's what it was on the Drudge Report.

STU: Scott Walker leads the Republican field with 18 percent. Ben Carson tied with Trump for second.

GLENN: Okay. Where was that?

STU: That's Ohio.

GLENN: Okay. That's Ohio. Okay. So -- and I'm thinking to myself, Donald Trump -- Donald Trump? Then I click over to the HuffPo to see what they're saying. They're all on Bernie mania. And Bernie Sanders has the biggest crowds ever. And I'm thinking to myself --

PAT: Biggest ever for a socialist or just biggest ever, period?

GLENN: So if this country decides to look and say, you know what, I don't know, it's either Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders, I am moving anywhere -- anywhere --

STU: I'm moving to North Korea if that's the case.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh, North Korea?

PAT: They have cool hotels.

GLENN: My gosh, what is wrong with us?

STU: I'm, by the way, opening this up to the entire audience. Willing to bet you any amount of money, any individual person, any amount of money that I can possibly afford, that Donald Trump will not be the Republican nominee and Bernie Sanders will not be the Democrat nominee.

PAT: He will not. We saw this last time.

STU: I'm open. @worldofStu, tweet me if you have an offer for a wager because I will accept all of them up to any amount I can afford. There is a 0 percent chance that Donald Trump is the nominee.

PAT: That is true. That is true. We need to keep this in perspective. Remember the time someone jumped in the race --

GLENN: Zero. This is what my wife said --

PAT: -- and they started making noise, and they went straight to the top.

GLENN: I know. But for the love of Pete, really? For the love of Pete.

PAT: Yeah, even Donald Trump. I know. I know. People are just grasping at straws.

GLENN: I actually think, because Paul Begala said, you know, this Donald Trump surge in the polls, it tells me that God is a Democrat, and he has a great sense of humor. And I thought to myself, that's the way I would view it too. Because that's the way I view Bernie Sanders. Thank you, Lord. Thank you. Because Bernie Sanders is a full-fledged socialist.

He's going to push Hillary -- there's no way he's going to win. He's going to expose the Democrats for who they really, truly are. Socialists.

PAT: Yeah. Yeah.

GLENN: He's going to push Hillary Clinton -- not that she needs very much of a push, but he's going to push her left. So I look at that and say, that's ridiculous. Thank you, Lord. That's the way they're looking at Donald Trump. Thank you, Lord.

STU: I don't think it's the same way. What you're saying is true. Obviously, I think both sides -- I get a kick out of Bernie Sanders. But the reason why I think Bernie Sanders is different because Donald Trump is just a joke.

GLENN: Yes. Yes.

STU: He's half, I'm going to tax people's bank accounts and half I'm going to say crazy things about Mexicans and I'm going to be outspoken and make a lot of crazy statements. Bernie Sanders is just articulate what Democrats believe.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: He's just not afraid to say it.

GLENN: I agree. Bernie Sanders is not crazy. He's just a full-fledged socialist.

STU: Right. And so is Hillary Clinton. But she doesn't say it. You know, he's just being honest. Donald Trump is not being honest about what Republicans believe. I'm sorry, Republicans do not believe you should tax the wealth out of people's bank accounts.

GLENN: And Donald Trump does.

STU: And Donald Trump does. He has actually supported that policy. He supported all kind of crap. He's a protectionist. Is that what the Republican Party is? I don't think it is at all.

GLENN: I don't know what it is anymore.

PAT: It's not that. I mean, Donald Trump is -- he's a reality TV star, and he's a guy who knows how to get attention.

GLENN: He's as serious as I would be -- no, I contend I would be more serious running for president.

STU: You would be. You would be. The guy has half run for president 90 times because he likes the attention it brings. He's going down this road maybe for real this time. But there is, again, a 0 percent chance he wins this nomination. 0 percent. And we're going to play this back when he's the nominee and make me feel bad. But there's a 0 percent chance.

PAT: He's in trouble right now too. This is serious -- NBC already dropped him. Macy's just dropped his clothing line. The PGA is reviewing whether or not they're going to drop his golf courses from their tour.

STU: Wow.

PAT: New York City is reviewing whether they'll drop all their business relations with him. New York City and Donald Trump, they're practically one and the same. He has developments all over town.

GLENN: Yeah, but he's not the same anymore. Because they've just elected a socialist.

PAT: Yeah. I know. I know.

GLENN: So the socialists hate Donald Trump.

PAT: But can you imagine if New York City stops doing business with Donald Trump?

GLENN: Honestly I know this is a complete conspiracy theory and it's one that I'm just making up, and I want to make it clear, I'm just making this up. I'm thinking out loud here on crazy thoughts. But if I were the Democrats, I would have started the protest on Donald Trump because I would be like, you know what, if you start getting him thrown off of things, it will make him more popular with the right.

STU: It makes you want to defend him.

GLENN: Because it makes me want to say, you know what, Donald, I'm not for you, but I'm for you on that. What kind of world do we live in where you can't say anything? It's stupid what he said. I don't agree with what he said. But he has a right to say it and not be run out of so it society. What is wrong with us?

PAT: If he nuanced what he said just ever so slightly, there's no problem with what he said at all. He just said it inartfully. The excuse they always use, and he should have used it too. I spoke inartfully. I spoke inartfully when I said...

DONALD: When Mexico sends his people, they're not sending their best. They're not sending you. They're not sending you --

PAT: Does anybody argue, like is Carlos Slim coming across the US border illegally?

STU: Probably not.

GLENN: No.

PAT: The guy with $68 billion, is he coming across the US border? No. He's probably mostly right about that statement so far. The best in their society, the economically well off are not coming across the border illegally. We know that.

JEFFY: Our own reports show that they're expecting the gang members to be across the border.

PAT: Sure. And they are coming by thousands.

DONALD: They have lots of problems, and they're bringing their problems with them. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.

PAT: Okay. If he would have just said, you know, there are some rapists, would he been in any trouble at all, instead of saying they're rapists?

GLENN: No. If he would have said, court records show that many of the people coming across are -- are undesirable in Mexico. They are people that raped over there and are raping over here. They have committed crimes over there and crimes over here. And that's well-documented. Now, sure there are good people coming across. This is -- this is just a bad way of saying what we all know to be true.

STU: There are obviously some people who come over who commit crimes. We know this to be true.

GLENN: We know it.

STU: That does not mean the vast majority of them are. But why should we be rooting for any? Right? We don't need additional crimes here. We're all set with our crimes. The people here commit enough crimes. We don't necessarily need some of Mexico's crimes too.

PAT: Exactly. That's the point. Because every time you mention the fact that an illegal alien has committed a felony. Well, Americans should -- right. And we have enough of that with our own citizens. We don't need other people's citizens doing the same thing here. We don't need that.

GLENN: So what do you think? So what happens to Donald Trump here?

STU: The thing I'm worried about is they're going to make this protest into a legitimate thing, and like New York City will cut off his business interests, which just entrenches him more in this campaign. I mean, if everything else goes away, this is all he'll have. And he'll sit here and just --

GLENN: Unless his advisers are saying, get out of this now.

STU: Well, I've always been on that bandwagon because eventually he has to turn over financial records, and I don't think he'll do that.

JEFFY: It's too late for him to get out now.

STU: You're right. He's getting to that point where he's entrenching himself.

GLENN: That's intense. That's intense. Because there will be a lot of people that will be for him, despite his progressive policies.

STU: Yeah, because at this point, they're seeing, guy who is outspoken. Not backing down. And that's it.

GLENN: And guy who is willing to say, you know, the president is Kenyan. You know what I mean?

STU: Right. Willing to say something incorrect. But still willing to say something that's controversial and not back down.

GLENN: Right. But there's a lot of people who believe that, many on the Democrat side, and nobody would say that. Well, because it was wrong, that's why. Because it was wrong.

STU: That's a minor part of the story.

GLENN: I know. But they don't believe anything anymore. People don't believe anything. So when somebody has the -- and then with everybody coming after him, they think, oh, see.

JEFFY: Yep.

GLENN: Oh, we're in trouble.

STU: It's just the climate we're in. It's weird. I was at the grocery store the other day and bought a delicious box of Triscuits. They were toasted coconut and sea salt Triscuits, which were delicious. And on the face, smiling back at me, was Martha Stewart. A woman who went to prison for an actual crime. She's the face of Triscuits. Okay?

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.

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?"
