Glenn debunks Obama's claim mass shootings don't happen outside the U.S.

While in Paris for the climate change conference, President Obama commented on the Colorado Springs shooting that killed three people and injured nine others. The president made the claim that mass shootings don't happen in any other country.

Glenn delved into the absurd claim on radio Thursday.

"What about Paris, the town you're in, Mr. President, just a few weeks ago?" Glenn asked.

He then proceeded to list the countries where the most people have been killed in mass shootings per million. Below are the top eight. Note, the U.S. comes in 6th place.

1. Norway 15.3 per million

2. Finland 1.85 per million

3. Slovakia 1.47 per million

4. Israel 1.38

5. Switzerland 0.75

6. U.S. 0.72

7. Belgium 0.63

8. Netherlands 0.42

While in Paris for the climate change conference, President Obama commented on the Colorado Springs shooting that killed three people and injured nine others. The president made the claim that mass shootings don't happen in any other country. What about Paris, the town you're in, Mr. President, just a few weeks ago?

I say this every time we have one of these mass shootings, this just happen in other countries. The president has made that statement in Paris. But are they true?

I have a chart. It shows that the US -- it -- it counts for its population size. So it's how many per million. How many people are killed in mass shootings per million.

When you look at it that way, number one, in mass shootings --

PAT: Of course, the United States of America.

GLENN: No, it's not number one. Actually Norway is number one. So it's Norway.

STU: Is there a state in America called Norway?


PAT: It's a city then. It's a capital city.

GLENN: No, it's the socialist country of Norway.

PAT: Oh. Okay. So Norway is number one. How many per million?

GLENN: 15.3.

PAT: Wow. That's high.

GLENN: Total rampage fatalities, 15.3. Total rampage shooting fatalities, 77. Total rampage shooting incidents, .19. So that's number one, Norway.

Number two --

PAT: This is where the US comes in.

GLENN: Finland. It would be the socialist country of Finland.

PAT: Is it really? Finland.

GLENN: Finland. Per million, 1.85.

STU: Norway has got quite a lead on that one.

PAT: Yeah. Jeez.

STU: That one incident with the guy who -- I mean, with the exception of Paris, was the worst one ever. Right? I mean, Paris is I guess now the worst one.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Slovakia is number three. 1.47 per million. Israel is number four at 1.38. Then Switzerland is five at .75.

PAT: Switzerland.

GLENN: Switzerland. Then the United States at .72. Then Belgium at .63. Then the Netherlands at .42.

PAT: Six. Wow.

GLENN: So a lot of these countries -- a lot of these countries are socialist. A lot of these countries also have wild gun control.

PAT: Gun control. Hmm.

STU: Yeah, the only exception to that really on that list is Switzerland. But everyone else, I mean, is pretty restrictive.

GLENN: Israel has a lot of guns, I think.

STU: I think Israel has fairly restrictive gun laws.

GLENN: They might. They might. They might. Yeah, but you can't really count Switzerland because Switzerland, you know, you got all those Palestinians there. You know, of course, there's going to be a rampage shooting there because the Israelis deserve it, really. They brought it on themselves for, you know, taking that homeland state that was given to them by the United Nations. So they kind of deserve it, don't you think?

So there's your -- there's your lie with the president. The president says, "This never happens." Yes, it does. And those are the hard facts, Mr. President.

STU: So what's the comeback to that? The comeback to that is, "Well, these are small countries with one big incident." Norway is the obvious one there. It's a smaller country. Has one big incident, blows those numbers out of proportion. That would be the argument against that.

Okay. So let's normalize the entire EU. Let's put it population versus population. Then what comes out? What comes out when you do that and you include the mass shootings, what you get is over a period of -- from 2002 to 2015, 352 casualties in the EU and 322 in the United States. So more casualties in the EU than the United States. And injuries, it's far worse. 933 injuries in the EU. 473 in the US.

JEFFY: That can't be though. Because what he said in France, "This doesn't happen in other countries."

PAT: Right. Unparalleled.

JEFFY: He changed the wording when he came back to the United States.

PAT: He did. He did.

JEFFY: And said just, "There's no other parallel." He threw "parallel" in there.

STU: He also said -- "With this much frequency" is his other one. And that may be very specific to this today, which shows that while there is a -- a higher incident of actual events when you normalize over population, there are more mass shootings, quote, unquote, in the US than there are in the EU. The EU versions are much worse. They're much more deadly.

GLENN: Yeah, but it doesn't have anything to do with guns.

STU: Maybe it has to do with people trying to defend themselves. Maybe it has to do with they have worse police forces in the EU. I don't know what their answer to that is. But you're talking about almost twice as many people die in each incident when it happens in the EU.

GLENN: Was I the only guy last night that was watching TV and when they said, "They're telling people know -- they're going house to house, and they're looking for another one of these -- another one of these perpetrators." And you had already seen two dead bodies in the street. You already knew that there were 17 people that were killed. So you knew what these people were capable of. And they said, "Stay in your home and lock your doors." Did anybody else think, I'm so glad I don't live in California, because if somebody told me, stay in my home, lock my doors, the first place I'd go is to my gun safe, and I get my freaking guns out and even my children would be holding guns. If they were in my neighborhood, I would be waiting inside. And if somebody comes into my house, I'm going to shoot you dead. But instead, you're in California, so you can't protect yourself.

Look at what -- just think of the insanity this is. Think of the mass delusion that is going on.

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?"
