Glenn talks to Senator Lieberman



GLENN: That's tonight we're going to be covering that at 6:00 Eastern time. Stu, are you doing shots all night? Is that what you are doing every time something is called for a Democrat?

STU: No, not doing that for a Democrat. We may have a couple of participants from our staff who would volunteer doing that, which is such a shocker.

GLENN: Yeah, the alcoholics on the staff. I mean, the recovering alcoholic is not doing that. But all those that I have strangely hired and put around me going, "Glenn, it's just one; it's no big deal."

STU: Hugh Hefner, Hugh Hefner has just called. Let's do another shot.

GLENN: Is he going to be watching all of the -- he's going to be specifically watching.

STU: MSNBC, just to see how much tingling goes on with the staff.

GLENN: Full-fledged --

STU: Tingle.

GLENN: I mean, 30 Rock is like, you know, orgasmatronic over there. That's all that is. It's just sitting there. It's going to vibrate tonight.

STU: They are going to get like Dick Clark to host that thing on MSNBC. It's going to be like a giant party countdown. It is going to be the greatest moment in Keith Olbermann's life.

GLENN: It is.

STU: Congratulations.

GLENN: It is. That guy is so angry, just so angry.

STU: How great was the sketch on Saturday Night Live about that, with Ben Affleck. How fantastic is that.

GLENN: Who is that person here? Lynn who has been holding for a while. Hi, Lynn.

CALLER: Hi, Glenn.

GLENN: You were calling about the Olbermann thing, right?

CALLER: I was hoping to hear about it Monday and then talk about it today. I thought they did justice to his personality.

GLENN: Oh, you know what? A tingle went up to my leg to know that it was Ben Affleck that did it.

CALLER: I know.

GLENN: I mean, I couldn't believe it. And did you notice? Maybe it was just me wanting to read more into it. It seemed to be done with glee.

CALLER: It was. I think he actually cracked up a couple of times when he was doing it.

GLENN: Yeah. And it's not -- I don't think it was done in the done in the spirit of just good-natured ribbing. It seemed as though they really did not like him.

CALLER: Well, I know you'd think somebody -- or someone reported that he showed up at the set and Affleck was not comfortable with that when he was there.

GLENN: Well, what was it, Stu? Were you the one who told me what Olbermann said? "You know, I just wanted to see exactly what was going on so we could all laugh together." And you know that he wasn't laughing. He is not the kind of guy that is going to take --

STU: He will certainly say that he is, you know. "Oh, it was all in good fun and everything else." But you look at it and I think there is an element that has been brewing for -- I think really when it was highlighted by the, "Shut your damn mouth, George Bush" and also when he was hammering Hillary Clinton in that one about how she should drop out of the race and everything. And I think it's come to the point now where liberals are embarrassed by Keith Olbermann. Like they are getting to that point where they are like, "All right, we don't want people to think we're like this guy." And there's a lot of people. I mean, you know, like there's a lot of people who are I don't think right but sensible and calm and not idiotic like Olbermann that believe liberal things. And you get to that point where you actually get embarrassed now.

GLENN: I've never watched Rachel Maddow's show but I've tuned in across and seen a little bit. I don't know. She's very, very liberal, everything that I believe. But I believe that she's the kind of person that you could have dinner with and have a reasonable conversation. She's not trying to kill you and drag your body through the streets.

STU: It definitely seems. And I have not watched the show at all but I've heard from people who are conservatives who say she at least seems likeable.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Which is a huge, a massive difference than Keith Olbermann who couldn't possibly be less like.

GLENN: That's the kind of atmosphere that we need to get to, you know, to where we can sit down. I mean, I worked at CNN. I can work with uber liberals and like each other, and really like and respect each other. Just disagree on those things. But you don't have to be nasty about it. And that's where we have to get away, you know. We just had Orrin Hatch on and now we have Joe Lieberman on. Here's an example of two people who are not nasty. They know what they believe, they stand up, and if you disagree with them, that's okay but they don't have to be nasty about it. And that's the direction we need to go in.

Joe Lieberman, welcome to the program, Senator. How are you, sir?



US Senator Joe Lieberman

SENATOR LIEBERMAN: Hey, Glenn, great to talk to you. I'm good and I'm honored to be on after my dear friend Orrin Hatch. We worked a lot together. We disagree but, you know, this is a friend and a most civil person. So thank you.

GLENN: I will tell you, Senator, I will tell you that I am -- you know, I just talked to Senator Hatch about this. I fear our Constitution is hanging by a thread. I fear our Constitution, we are in real, real jeopardy here because we haven't faced this perfect storm before that we have. I mean, everybody right now is just talking about the economy, but let's talk about what the heck happens with Israel and Iran and even Iraq at this point.

SENATOR LIEBERMAN: Yeah. No, look, there's no question that when people get up in the morning, they're worried about the economy. They are worried about their jobs, they are worried about their savings and investment, worried about whether they can pay their mortgage. That's all understandable and that's something that is on the ballot today. But let's never forget that out there is an enemy as devastating, probably more devastating than any we've ever faced. They protect us in the homeland, these are the Islamic extremists, they ab sore our values, our way of life and, you know, this is a choice for commander-in-chief between a man who's really inexperienced in foreign policy, a smart man, Barack Obama, well spoken but never really been tested in a crisis. And we're not sure what he would do. John McCain tested all of his life in crises, passed the test, knows that the world has leaders who are good and some are evil and you're not going to talk the evil ones into being good by sitting down over a cup of coffee. You know, they have got to -- I always say about John McCain that he will be a President that our allies will trust and like and our enemies will fear. And that's the kind of President we hate. So you are right, there's an awful lot on the line today in this election. And it honestly goes to the heart of our -- in a way that seems to me more intense than any election since I've been voting, goes to the heart of our future, really what we're going to be as a country and a very more personal way, whether America's going to be as strong and free and full of opportunity for my kids and grandkids as it has been, thank God, for me.

GLENN: Do you agree that with Senator Hatch -- I've only got a minute before a network break. I hope we can hold you here. But do you agree that Senator Hatch said to me that if we don't at least have the firewall of the filibuster in the Senate that in many ways America will not survive.

SENATOR LIEBERMAN: Well, I hope it's not like that, but I fear. And I think for some of us there is a key. You know, it gets a bad name but it was really put there, a 60-vote requirement as somebody said to me when I first came to the Senate, stop the passions of a moment among the people of America from sweeping across the congress, the House, to the Senate and to a like minded President and having us do things that will change America for a long time. So the filibuster is one of the great protections we have. Glenn, I apologize. I'm running to go out with Senator McCain. We're going to Colorado.

GLENN: Best of luck.

SENATOR LIEBERMAN: I'm real proud of you. I remember you back when.

GLENN: Thanks a lot. 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?"

Iversen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to discuss what The Great Reset is and how YOU can help stop it. Watch the video clip from "The Glenn Beck Program" below:
