Glenn Beck: Grace


“Grace” by Richard Paul Evans

GLENN: 888 727 BECK. Hello, you sick twisted freak. Welcome to the program. I have always told you that I believe in my sponsors, I believe in the I'm never going to ask you to ever go out and spend a dollar of your hard earned money if I don't believe in something. I promise you that. I know how hard you work for your money. I know how hard I work for my money and I also know that if I ever ask you to do something and then you do and you're like, well, that sucks, you know, it really, it hurts our relationship. The one thing that I tell you that I have really been feeling strongly about lately is and I know it's hard to find it right now on this program because I'm giving you so much information that it's like, "Oh, boy, think I'm going to go in the garage and hang myself." But the one thing that I've really been feeling strongly for the last three months is hope. Hope, hope, hope, hope, hope, hope. And I've told you recently that we have to reconnect with values, we have to reconnect with something of value. I'm going to tell you where you can spend $19.95 today and you will get $50 worth of value and have just a great reconnection with hope and the values that we have been missing. I reconnected with my childhood. I reconnected. When I was a kid, we used to have this we had this house and in the backyard there was kind of this overgrown area and my father helped me build a clubhouse. And I was kind of a loser kid. So it was really only me in the clubhouse. Wasn't really fun, but I remember the time going into the clubhouse and it was like my own secret world. I hadn't thought about that and what my childhood was like for a long, long time. I hadn't thought of that clubhouse in probably 20 years until I picked up the new book for Richard Paul Evans called Grace. In case you don't know the name, Richard Paul Evans is the author of The Christmas Box. Another one of my favorite books, The Gift, came out last year. Just, he is a writer of character, quality and hope and he's with me now. Richard, how are you?

EVANS: Good, glad to be here.

GLENN: This went on sale just the other day and you are already getting people who are coming up to you in the street. Because it doesn't take you long. I think it took me two nights to read. But you are already having people coming up in the streets that have been affected by this.

EVANS: Right. Immediately. Because some of the underlying themes are bringing memories, like you said, out of people, especially people who have been abused in the past.

GLENN: And I have to tell you because, you know, America I mean, if you've been abused, you are going to love this book. Please read this. I picked it up and I think I read the jacket and it was my first kiss, my first love. She was little match girl, though I could see in the future the flame of a candle. I'm like, oh, wow, this is going to be nice, blah, blah, blah. Then I read on and it's like, I can't do this, too, please, no, I can't.

EVANS: It's hopeful.

GLENN: And it's hopeful but it doesn't get in until later on. It doesn't really get into that. It just an innocent first love, first kiss, true to each other, helping each other out. It's great.

EVANS: They're kids. Someone said this reminds me of to kill a mockingbird, what I was doing really heavy social issues. The bottom line is you are reading about these kids and how they are dealing with the world around them. The story's about a young runaway girl and young boy who finds her and hides her in his clubhouse and tries to protect her.

GLENN: Right. And he finds her, he is working at the. He was a guy who decided he's going to capitalize on everything if he will right over here. He will capitalize on all of the advertising from everybody if it's McBurger Queen. I thought that was great. But anyway, he was working there as this kid and he goes out to dump some stuff out of the dumpster and he hears a noise and he spots Grace.

EVANS: Looking for food.

GLENN: Dumpster diving.

EVANS: Right.

GLENN: And he doesn't say anything to embarrass her. If I remember right, he knew. I know it says later that he didn't, but did he really know at the time?

EVANS: Well, he saw her drop the hamburger she was holding but he didn't want to embarrass her. And so later she writes in her diary, either he was very kind or very dumb.

GLENN: Yeah. It's great because it has her diary, little pieces of her diary all the way through between the chapters and so you are seeing what she's not telling him and it is, it's a story of chivalry. It's just great.

EVANS: Thanks.

GLENN: Now, you what I love about do you know Jon Huntsman?

EVANS: Yes.

GLENN: Senior?

EVANS: Yes.

GLENN: One of the greatest guys I know.

EVANS: He is an amazing man. I actually sent him a book.

GLENN: He is not going to read it. I sent him my book. Anyway, he is one of the most amazing men because here is a guy who has made a fortune and he's giving it all away. Tell the story about the first time when you first got the offer on The Christmas Box because you just self published it. That was something that you really had just written for your family, right?

EVANS: Right, as a Christmas present. In fact, I went out my publisher, first publisher was Kinko's. So I went out, made 20 copies and handed them out and they just spread. People started sharing them with each other and pretty soon hundreds of people had read those 20 copies and that's when I decided to try to publish the book. So I sent it out to publishers and they all rejected the story. "A book like this will never sell" and so I self published it because I beg to differ, I think it will. That was 8 million copies ago, just kept spreading and spreading. But we got that first check because at first once it hit the New York Times, then the publishers changed their minds. They all wanted the book. It sold in an auction for $4.25 million. So when I got the check, the first thing I did is like, I made a copy and sent it to my friend, faxed it to him just to bug him. And then Keri and I, who is actually in the studio, Keri and I talked about it, well, what would this do to our family. We went and talked to some financial consultants and they told us these horrible stories about our kids would become drug addicts. I was like, what? Keri said, let's just give the money back, which says a lot about this woman. And I said, hold on a second.

GLENN: Wait, wait, can we buy some stuff first?

EVANS: I've been without money, I don't like that. So we decided we would give back and so it started this process that's become a magnificent obsession. We started building shelters for abused children and we've housed more than 20,000 abused children since we started.

GLENN: That's amazing.

EVANS: Isn't that cool?

GLENN: That's amazing. And you kept the money, too.

EVANS: And she has a nice home. She won't say anything.

GLENN: You know, we talk, because I how much time do we have here, Dan? We have one minute? I sent you the I sent you a copy of my book and had you read it and you've called back and said it was great, blah, blah, blah. We were talking about it and I said, okay, here's the problem. The publisher wants me to change the ending and you said do you remember what you said to me? You said, why? And I said, because they don't understand the redemption part. They don't understand the God part of it. Do you remember?

EVANS: I do.

GLENN: And you said, went through the same thing. They don't in New York they just don't get what the rest of the country just, you know, gets naturally. When we come back, I want to ask you a little bit about the difference between what we see in the media, what we generally read and the courage that it takes to stand up and say, "No, no, no, I know that's what everybody says you are supposed to believe but this is the truth."

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?"
