Glenn Beck: Rudy G


Rudy Giuliani

GLENN: Joining us now, former mayor of New York City, Rudy Giuliani. Hello, Rudy, how are you?

GIULIANI: Hello, Glenn, how are you?

GLENN: I'm very good. I just don't know how we dig ourselves out of this.

GIULIANI: How we dig ourselves out of this mess?

GLENN: Here we lost 156,000 jobs last month and the government gained 9,000 new employees. We're going in the wrong direction here.

GIULIANI: Yeah, I think one of the good things that President Bush could do, I've been saying this for a while but never too late to do it, and John McCain could really pound this tonight is how about an across-the-board 2 1/2 to 5% cut in all government agencies with the possible exception, you know, of the military and maybe to take out one or two that are going through critical problems right now.

GLENN: If we weren't both married, I'd date you right now.

GIULIANI: Now, I did that four, five times as mayor. It can be done. Michael Bloomberg is doing it right now here in New York City, started about a month ago. I don't see why the President of the United States can't do it.

GLENN: We're not doing that. We're going the opposite direction. I mean, Barack Obama is still on the campaign trail and they are still talking about Social Security, they are talking about, you know, healthcare, they are talking about another stimulus package now. Rudy, where are we getting this money?

GIULIANI: All these things have to be put on hold until we get ourselves through this and what has to be done is we've got -- I always thought that economic downturns -- and this is not the first one that we've had. We get them in cycles -- are great opportunities for straightening out government. I always found doing the budget easier during a downturn than an upturn because I could say to the legislature, sorry, we have no money, it's time to cut now. And that's what should be done. Also, if the President did that, if McCain did that, it would send a great signal to the rest of the world that America is going to try, we're going to try to live within our means. We recognize part of the problem is we've been spending too much darn money, starting with the government and then going right through our society. And then a couple of targeted business tax cuts, corporate tax, certainly don't raise the tax on capital gains the way Obama wants to do. I mean, we've got to talk sound fundamental economics now.

GLENN: But we're not. We've got Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Barack Obama. These people, this is a train to 1917 Russia.

GIULIANI: I mean, we've been saying this for some time but it's now sort of become clearer. This is the most left wing accumulation of Democrats we've had in a very long time and the guy at the top of their ticket is, you know, way over on the far left. From the time he entered politics with ACORN, this guy has been on the far left.


GLENN: William Ayers, how do you --

GIULIANI: Well, I think William Ayers fits into ideology.

GLENN: I do. I think --

GIULIANI: Forget all this guilt by association. Barack Obama has surrounded himself with radical left wing thinkers. No wonder he wants to redistribute wealth.

GLENN: Oh, sure. How do you --

GIULIANI: I mean, Ayers, a guy who admitted to bombing the New York City police department, the Pentagon, the congress, unrepentant, says I'd do it again.

GLENN: I have an amazing piece of -- we have an amazing piece we're going to play later from CNN that Anderson Cooper did that, I mean just says, yeah, yeah, there's some real ties here. It's an amazing piece. What I'd like to have John McCain say today -- and tell me your thought on this. Why doesn't John McCain just say, "You know what, I just want to ask one question and that is why does it seem like all of your friends hate America." I mean, I don't have those friends.

GIULIANI: Right.

GLENN: How many people in your circle of friends hate America?

GIULIANI: Well, you've got him, you've got Wright, and it is not -- therefore it is not strange that this guy has the most liberal radical agenda.

GLENN: Yeah.

GIULIANI: He believes in redistribution of wealth. When he was confronted with the fact that if he raises the capital gains tax, he will get less money rather than more money for the government, he said, well, it's just fair.

GLENN: Right.

GIULIANI: Well, that becomes out of being a disciple of Saul Alinsky, of being someone who sits on board with Ayers, a guy who was in Wright's church for 20 years. And his answer to all this is he didn't know. One of his campaign guys came out last night and said, well, when he took the money from Ayers, he didn't know about Ayers' background. Just like for 20 years he didn't know that Wright was spewing forth anti-American hatred from the pulpit of his church. I mean, actually he didn't know, then he's not qualified to be President, right?

GLENN: Let me ask you --

GIULIANI: He doesn't have the judgment to be President. Ayers was one of the most famous Weathermen, known all over Chicago for that. He goes to a fundraiser, doesn't know, then sits on a board with him for three years and gives out millions of dollars?

GLENN: What does it say to you about us that this guy isn't tanking because of Reverend Wright, because of William Ayers, because of all of the extraordinarily left wing stuff? I mean, not crazy Democrat. Left wing borderline if not Marxist philosophies? What does it say about us?

GIULIANI: He has built up a remarkable defense mechanism that makes the person raising this look bad for raising it. He's doing it to Hillary, he's doing it to McCain, he's doing it to Sarah Palin and it's totally ridiculous. Of course you should ask these questions. Again if John McCain was surrounded by some, you know, crazy right wing nut for -- and sat on a board with him for three years, David Duke let's say, right?

GLENN: Yeah.

GIULIANI: If he was sitting on a board with David Duke and David Duke was saying, you know, ten years later, I don't repent any of that stuff I said; in fact, I wish I had said more of it, what would -- John McCain be gone, right? As a candidate it would be the biggest story in the liberal press.

GLENN: You were on my show about, oh, I don't know, I think it must have been about a year ago and we were having a conversation about a book called The Forgotten Man and you said, oh, I just finished reading it; it's fantastic. Let me take you to The Forgotten Man here in a second. For anybody who doesn't know, The Forgotten Man is the guy who they take the tax money from, you know, the politicians take the tax money from The Forgotten Man and give it to the special interest group. It's the people in the middle that are like, why are you screwing me all the time.

GIULIANI: It's a book worth reading right now, by the way.

GLENN: Oh, it is. For those people who have lived cleanly, they have played by the rules, you know, they didn't buy a house with 125% mortgage and zero down and, you know, an adjustable mortgage after, like, two days, what do you do when these people are starting to bail out everybody else to keep them from being disenfranchised, when we have to start spending all of this money, everybody's saying we've got to raise taxes for all these bailouts, how do you keep The Forgotten Man from just rising up and saying, you know, to hell with all of you; I lived and played by the rules.

GIULIANI: Well, you don't unless you set a whole new group of rules that makes it impossible for this to happen, that has some very strict limits on the fact that you can't loan money unless there's some equity there. I mean --

GLENN: Who's going to set these rules? Everybody in congress was dirty. Everybody was in on this game.

GIULIANI: They were, and at the core of it is Fannie and Freddie, who literally were not only not setting rules but were encouraging irresponsible borrowing. I mean, they were leading the band for irresponsible borrowing. And to John McCain's credit and Senator Sununu and some others, they tried to put a stop to this. And one of the guys who prevented it was Barack Obama and Barney Frank and all these guys who are, you know, who are now talking about, oh, gee, they should have done something about this.

GLENN: Did you see the last debate with Sarah Palin where she was talking about predatory lenders?

GIULIANI: Yes.

GLENN: And I don't know -- did you see the graph? And the graph was flat until she started going into personal responsibility. And she says, you don't take out more loan than you can have. Why is it that John McCain seems hesitant to say we're going to slash the budget? Why is he hesitant of saying I'm not going to sign this bill because of all this pork? I believe in a bailout but not with all this pork? Why is he hesitant?

GIULIANI: Well, I hope that's what happens tonight because personal responsibility from poor to rich is at the key to all this, you know, and the same excesses that happened in Wall Street with just lending money and borrowing money and not -- you know, Lehman Brothers was leveraged 30:1? How can you be leveraged? I don't even get it. 30:1? For every dollar they had in essence they had $30 worth of debt? You and I would be bankrupt.

GLENN: It was congress. If it were you and I, Rudy, we would be in jail! We would be in jail! At some point I'm going to look at that and go, well, at least I get three meals a day and a cot.

GIULIANI: And how do you buy a house and you don't put anything down? Nothing!

GLENN: 125% of the mortgage! It doesn't make sense. Rudy Giuliani, thank you so much, sir.

GIULIANI: We'll talk to you Glenn. Bye-bye.

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?"
