Message to the GOP: You Don't Know Your Ass From Your Elbow

Editor’s Note: The following article is based on Glenn’s monologue from The Glenn Beck Program, delivered Friday, July 29, 2016.

I want to give you my review of the Democratic National Convention (DNC) this week, and I've got a couple of warnings and a bright spot for you in this.

RELATED: DNC: The Night of a Thousand Victims

Let's start with the warning.

Politics is Hollywood for Ugly People

What was presented this week? Because what you saw was a show. It was a Hollywood production. Politics is Hollywood for ugly people, and they have merged entertainment with politics now. Let me start with the reality of who they are.

The reality of who they are, at least on the Clinton side is this:

• They are big government elitists that use the government for control.

• They use charity for control.

• They are void of principles, except for power and control and money.

• They are masterful students of behavioral science.

The Clinton Foundation is corrupt to its core, at least that's the strong speculation, and I believe that to be true. (You will see the Obama Foundation do the same exact thing now.) You can see that in things like what they did in Haiti. If you're not going through the Clinton Foundation, you're not getting anything done there. They're using charity for control and cash. They learned this from the Rainbow Coalition and black charlatans like Al Sharpton, and they also learned it from Eva Peron: You can use charity as a cash cow. But you can also use the government's charity as a cash cow. Now, you're not necessarily personally being enriched by it, but you are growing the size of government.

I believe they are void of principles, except for power and control and money. They are also --- and this one is really important --- student's of behavioral science. There is so much metadata out there on people now, that we don't have to do focus groups. We don't have to do even dial testing. We can get metadata now, and we can see what people are reading, what they're connecting with and what they're engaging with. And that is what these guys do really well, so they know how to craft messages that reach you.

A Ticking Time Bomb

The message to those in the DNC crowd was, "We're just like you."

If you listen to the speeches, most were reaching out to the Marxists, the radicals, the activists, the racists, the anti-Semites, the youth, the idealists, the undereducated, the anti-religionist and the anti-God people --- not atheist, but anti-God. That's who their core now is. And that's never been who the Democratic core was. But they know if they cobble together these people, they'll be able to get things done because those people will mobilize and put people on the streets.

That's why during a prayer, you had boos. That's why you had cheers when they talked negatively against Israel and positively for Palestine, when they were breaking for a silent moment for the police officers. That's why you had the chants of Black Lives Matter happen. That's why you heard in their speeches pure socialism and Marxism, uncovered and without any mask.

Putting on the Mask of the Tea Party

Think about these three categories:

1. The reality of who they are, the core's reality.

2. The people who were actually in that building and really funding them.

3. Who were they trying to reach and co-opt during the week.

Let me tie the first column together to the last column.

They are students of behavioral science. Because of that, let's see who they tried to co-opt, because if you listened to the actual speakers and you know what was what, you heard them talk radical Marxism. You heard them say things that were unbelievable. However, if you were watching as the average person, you heard a very youthful, very fun, very united, very centrist, even constitutional approach.

A Muslim man came out last night and pulled out his pocket Constitution and said, "Mr. Trump, do you even read the Constitution? Do you even know what's in the Constitution?"

Now, let me ask you something. Who in the life of America has a pocket Constitution? Tell me who has a pocket Constitution? Tea Party people. What else did we hear that Tea Party people are talking about? You heard them talk about the Founders over and over and over again. You heard Hillary Clinton last night quote de Tocqueville, Democracy in America: "America is great because America is good." You heard all kinds of language that is taken directly from the Tea Party movement, did you not?

That was the mask they were wearing. They were wearing the Tea Party mask: This corruption has to stop, and if we just do the right things, if we just take care of each other, and if we just follow the Constitution, if we would just return to our Founding principles, we would be okay.

Well, you and I know they don't believe a word of that. They've been fighting against and mocking the people who have been saying that for eight years.

They tried to co-opt the FDR/JFK Democrats and make them seem like that's who they are by moderating towards the center, but that's not who they are. The Reagan Democrats, if there is such a thing anymore, the people who might have voted for Reagan, but then returned to the party, I think this was Ronald Reagan's convention, quite honestly, except for the actual words spoken by the candidates and by the politicians. This had the feel of Ronald Reagan's Morning in America. The underinformed people, the people who just don't pay attention to these things, that casually watch and see people like the Muslim guy and say, "Yes." Because I would. "Yes, we can't do that."

The cultural voters, the people who are just watching for the stars and just watching it like a concert and people who are like, "You know, this is a happy place. This is a good group of people. I like these people. Looks like they're having fun." Right?

But then they even reached out to the Tea Party constitutionalists and even the rule of law voters. How could they have done that? Why would they do that?

Message to the GOP

Here's the message the GOP --- shame on you --- needs to hear: You don't know your ass from your elbow. You could even look at research, but it wouldn't mean anything to you.

Here's a group of people --- the Democrats --- that know how to connect to the American people, know how to connect to their heart, and do enough homework to look at behavioral science and say: "What are the American people feeling? Who is out there that feels something and is impassioned and wants America to change? But not the people like Ted Cruz, not those people listening to Glenn Beck because they're informed. They know the truth. They know who we are. But what's out in the center of the country that the average person who is not well informed on who we are will believe? What is it that's connecting with them?"

The Tea Party values. The constitutional values. The red, white and blue values. The values of our Founders.

What did the GOP do last week? They reached out to the Bernie Sanders people. They completely jettisoned our Founding documents. They completely jettisoned the Tea Party people.

Did you notice that last night, these guys were reaching out, not just to the Tea Party, not only to the Bernie Sanders, but all week, they were reaching out to you?

I told you that great movements, they blink right before they're about to win. And I have said for years, "We cannot blink." And I said to you last summer, "You don't know how close you are to winning. You're almost there. Don't blink. Don't lose your values. Don't blink. You're about to win."

Last night was confirmation that the Democrats, who have been belittling and saying how powerless and how out of touch and out of the mainstream we are for quoting the Constitution and the Founding documents, this is proof positive that these people who are students of behavioral science made the entire week about us. They used our words, our approach, everything that is in our heart, and they put it front and center.

GOP and RNC idiots, you idiots, maybe after you get your ass handed to you by a bunch of Marxist revolutionary radicals who have just cloaked themselves as you, maybe you'll figure out that we should stop moderating to the left.

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.

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.
