Behind-the-Scenes Photos of the 'Contentious' Meeting with Sean Hannity, Ben Sasse and Glenn Beck

UPDATED 3/4/16:

Sean Hannity tweeted two clarifications he'd like to make:



As I was getting ready for the debate, I saw that Twitter is blowing up with rumors and half truths about an impromptu meeting at CPAC between me, Sean Hannity and Senator Ben Sasse.

Let me set the record straight.

I had just finished my radio show and was taking pictures with those in the crowd that had been there watching.

Senator Ben Sasse had been on my show along with the wife of Clarence Thomas, Ginni, who is a dear friend.

Ginni told me that just about a month ago she was a Trump supporter. She began to do her homework and had realized that he was not the man she thought he was and, in fact, felt that he would be a dangerous choice.

I asked her if she could vote for him in the general. She had said she didn't want to answer that yet.

I, later, stated that I could not. I feel strongly that he is a massive New York Progressive with authoritarian tendencies.


A few minutes later Ben Sasse was on and explained his very brave choice of not voting for Trump in the primary. All he did was tell it like he sees it, while refusing to put parties and the establishment ahead of his principles.

Well, the internet went wild, saying that we were stumping for Hillary, who we both believe will be a knock out punch for the Republic, corrupt and someone for whom we could never cast a vote...

The problem is, we feel the same about Donald, making the only difference between the GOP and the Democrats is that one is in the Whitehouse and the other is not.

Ben and I both believe that this is 1860, and the GOP is about to go the way of the Whig Party.

I have been warning and predicting this very time for over four years and it has nothing to do with Donald Trump and everything to do with the lies from the Washington elite.

After the show Sean came by, took some pictures with our mutual fans and then asked if we could have a few minutes together. I, of course, said sure.

We sat behind the staging away from the crowd. He began to talk about Trump and my feelings about him. It is no secret that he supports and believes in Trump (he also likes Rubio and Cruz). He also knows that I have endorsed Cruz and feel Trump is liberal, progressive, dishonest, and in it for himself.


As we began a friendly but frank conversation, Ben Sasse came around the corner. He said to Sean in no uncertain terms that what Sean was "doing was Bullcrap."

This came as a surprise to both of us as we didn't see Ben approach. It took Sean off guard and he asked who the man was. He didn't recognize the senator. Ben introduced himself and it was awkward for a couple of minutes. Ben explained that many from his state were telling him that Sean had said that he was voting for Hillary.

Sean responded by saying he never said that, but he did confirm that he said it was half a vote for Hillary. Both Ben and I strongly disagreed and said that we could not vote for another candidate that would cut deals with the establishment.

Sean felt that we were wrong. We felt he was wrong.


Our differences on voting stems from our belief that the party is beyond repair unless Cruz and Rubio come together. If Trump gets the nomination we believe it will be the end of the GOP as it will officially not stand for any constitutional and conservative principles. Sean, I believe, thinks this is 1992 not 1860.

We spoke for about twenty minutes. It was rather intense at times but respectful. I told them both that I was the comic relief in my alcoholic family and "I don't like it when mommy and daddy fight." We all laughed and spoke about our mutual respect.

Where do we go from here? I don't know but none of us changed our minds. Sean spoke to me for a few more minutes trying to convince me that Trump was the guy. We agreed to disagree.

We saw each other again later in the day after his radio show and before my TV show. All good.

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?"

President Joe Biden just had the worst-rated week in the entire first year of his presidency, but his latest poll numbers are the icing on the cake, Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck on the radio program.

Given that polls aren’t always correct, O’Reilly explained another way to prove that Biden's first year may be worse than any other president's before him: It’s impossible to name one single contribution Biden has made to move America forward.

"Biden: There isn't anything you can point to. Not one thing ... that he's done to improve the nation. That's the test. You just step back, take emotion out of it, politics out of it, and say, give me one thing that Joe Biden has done to improve the country. Just one. And you can't do it," O'Reilly said. "And if there is, I want your listeners to contact me at BillO'"
