Mall Rampage Mania

Filling in for Glenn on radio Tuesday, John Cardillo commented on the news of mall rampages occuring around the U.S. the day after Christmas. He also shared the findings of his research on the areas where the most crime is committed.

"I did an analysis, in-depth on this, about this three months ago: 100 percent of the areas where crime was at its highest crosshatched with the young black men committing the crime, were the most progressive Democrat districts in their respective cities and states," Cardillo said. "There is a correlation."

Listen to the segment or read the transcript below.

JOHN: Talking about epidemic-level of black-on-black crime rates. And in Chicago alone, I just want to touch on something with Chicago, because we brought up Chicago because their crime numbers are really disproportionate to the rest of the US, especially with regards to murder. What are the crime rates in Chicago? They were 43 people shot and 11 murdered over Christmas weekend?

TIFFANY: Sixty-one people shot since the Christmas weekend started. Twelve dead. One of them is a 14-year-old girl who is clinging to life.

JOHN: Tragic.

TIFFANY: It is tragic. 785 homicides this year alone. 4300 shooting victims this year alone. That's up 1300 from last year.

JOHN: Now, what's the population? Chicago population is about four to 5 million, right?

TIFFANY: In the greater area.

JOHN: Okay. So it's about half that of New York City.

TIFFANY: A little bit less.

JOHN: Yeah. New York City is only about 200-some-odd this year. Mid- to high two hundreds. That's 200-and-some-odd too many. But Chicago, just to put it in perspective, with half the population of New York City is averaging about three times New York City's homicides.

Now, I want to get at these mall rampages in just a second. But I want to also focus on something that people understand. Young black men being .5 percent of the population and committing 11 percent of the homicides. Twenty-two times the representation in the population. But you also have to look at Census track data.

So even though it's .5 percent of the population, it's a very small subset of those black men, 18-24, in certain geographical areas. Now, I don't want to get political here. I never want to get political when I talk about dead kids, dead young men. But these areas -- and I study this. I'm a geek for this data. These Census tracked areas are overwhelmingly the most progressive Democrat-run areas in the United States, bar none.

In fact, I did an analysis, in-depth on this, about this three months ago: 100 percent of the areas where crime was at its highest crosshatched with the young black men committing the crime, were the most progressive Democrat districts in their respective cities and states. There is a correlation.

And this particular instance, correlation and causation are the same. It is the institutionally racist and debilitating policies of progressive Democrats. And it trickles down to kids. Because I worked in a pretty much 99 percent non-white area in the south Bronx. But only about four to 6 percent of that area was a criminal element.

The rest, 94, 95 percent were good hard-working people who simply couldn't afford to move or didn't want to move. It was their home. And they were victimized by overwhelmingly disproportionate crime of a very small minority, and the victims were black. The victims weren't white. The victims were black working families.

But, again, we're not allowed to talk about that.

TIFFANY: No, we're not allowed to talk about that. Because it really does stem from progressivism. You know, it's been more than 50 years since LBJ's War on Poverty. More than 22 trillion has been spent on anti-poverty programs, welfare programs, and the poverty rate in the black community is basically the same now as it was then. It's just a couple points less.

JOHN: Well, it's designed though. This is by design. This is by design to keep tens of million -- maybe 100 million Americans collectively dependent on Democratic policies.

TIFFANY: Exactly. I mean, food stamps. Public housing. Medicaid. Daycare. We're penalized as well if the recipient was married. So this really led to the breakdown, the dissolution of the black family. You know, according to the Census Bureau, 73 percent of blacks are born out of wedlock today. Sixty-seven percent are growing up in single-parent households. This is a direct result of LBJ's War On Poverty and progressive policy.

JOHN: And, again, these are not the opinions of John Cardillo, Tiffany Gabbay, the Glenn Beck Program. This is data from the United States Census Bureau. This is data from the FBI. From the Center For Disease Control. From the National Institute of Health. All of these organizations compile and crunch this data. And so yesterday, we see a result of this. We saw, the day after Christmas, mall rampages around the US.

Town center in Aurora, Colorado. Five hundred people involved in multiple incidents. A mall in Fort Worth, Texas, 100 people involved. In Memphis, two malls. Fayetteville, North Carolina, Elizabeth, New Jersey. And the list goes on. And the common denominator was these are young black men and women. That those teenager age groups. That 14 to 17, that 18 to 24, you know, teenage to young adult who are committing crime at disproportionate rates.

And they're doing this, I believe, because the Democratic Party has failed them. The education system has failed them. They're taught to believe false narrative. Now, a pet peeve of mine, and I get flame for it, is Kwanzaa. Kwanzaa was created by a guy who goes by the name of Maulana Karenga. His real name is Ron Everett. And if you don't know this, he invented Kwanzaa in 1966.

And shortly after that, in 1971, was convicted to four years in prison for torturing two women. The torture was so severe. He burned them with a soldering iron. Beat with them electrical cords. This guy is now -- he's not sitting in prison, by the way. He did four years. He is an Africana studies professor at Cal State, Long Beach.

TIFFANY: Perfect.

JOHN: Right. These are the people being celebrated in academia. These are the people that the United Federation of Teachers -- we talked about the teachers union yesterday, that the UFT and the AFT, the American Federation of Teachers, these are the people they celebrate, that they put into classrooms, that they promote.

Felons torturing -- murderous felons. People who create an alternate narrative of American history.

And I think it's a tremendous disservice when you tell teenagers, young adults, in any population, in any racial group, to disregard the truth, to disregard facts, to disregard data, statistics. To disregard established history. Create your own -- excuse me, create your own and act accordingly.

And we've seen the end result. And what's happening here is just another generation. In fact, many generations that will then live in systemic poverty. That will then blame a system, the same system that was designed to keep them down, they're going to be conditioned to vote for that system.

It is absolutely tragic.

TIFFANY: No. It absolutely is.

JOHN: Yeah. It's just absolutely terrible. And I think that one of the biggest problems we run into is the mainstream media and academia again.

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.
