Interview with Neil Cavuto



GLENN: 888-727-BECK. I can't say that he's a friend of mine. I would like to say that someday I can call him a friend of mine. Neil Cavuto, one of the straight-up good guys on the planet today is a guest on the program here. Hello, Neil, how are you?

CAVUTO: Hey, Glenn, I'm calling you a friend. I'm just running with it. So I mean, it's working for me.

Neil Cavuto, Sr VP, Anchor & Managing Editor, Business News

FOX Business Network

GLENN: I am as well. I have to tell you, Neil -- well, first let me get into the business of the day. I wanted to have you on because I'm not a real optimist on the economy. I am a guy who, I believe in America, I believe in capitalism. You know, I'm a Ronald Reagan guy, I really am. However, I think we're facing a real storm of things that are all starting to come together that are just going to be a real problem for us if we don't make all of the right moves or if there's any additional pressure put on your economy and I've been warning, look out, look out, this stuff with the banks and liquidity is a real problem and everybody is in denial on it, everybody's being, you know, oh, Glenn, you're being Chicken Little. I don't think I am. I didn't want to get somebody who's more pessimistic on the economy than I am. I wanted to get an optimist on. Explain what is going on now with the world's central banks doing something they never do. The last time they did this, correct me if I'm wrong, was after September 11th.

CAVUTO: That's right, that's right. You're right to be concerned about what could happen. I'm equally concerned about the moves, Glenn, that could make things much worse. I'm not in the camp, Glenn, that says all mortgages are melting down. I'm not in the camp that says we've got housing -- because I also look at all the numbers and I realize that 95% of mortgages are being paid each month, month to month on time and that even among sub prime mortgages, Glenn, close to 9 out of 10 of those are being paid on time.

GLENN: Right.

CAVUTO: So having said that what I worry about is the perspective that some in Washington lack and for the bulk of the few who aren't paying their mortgages -- and it's a record few. I don't want to minimize it. We are going to make things worse for the overwhelming vast majority who are. That's where I share your concern because Washington in its infinite wisdom could really complicate this. They could set up programs and the like to bail out homeowners and lenders that for years, for decades to cut a freeze on housing, but you must, must, must be careful of that.

Now, I also worry when central banks around the world get together and throw in a lot of money to short the banking system because what effectively they are doing, Glenn, is trying to encourage lending or provide the money and the reassurances effective there so people can lend. People have to take the lump on that. You can't force someone to spend their money. You can't -- although my wife says it's relatively easy to do. You can't force that issue. So now we have to see whether banks respond to this sudden flood of money coming in.

GLENN: Okay. Here's the thing that I am concerned about. It is -- the reason why, and please correct me where I'm wrong. The reason why they are trying to free up more money is because these banks are -- a lot of it is fear. They have to make sure that they can cover anything that might go bad and so what they're doing is they are cutting back. It's harder and harder to get short-term loans which are like 30-day loans to where if I've got some vegetables that need to get to market, I usually go to my bank and I say, hey, you know, I need the loan. 30 days it gets to trucking, to move things here and there. And that money is drying up. And when you dry up that money, then you've got a real problem. When businesses can't get that 30-day loan, am I right on that?

CAVUTO: Well, I think stepping back from this, we're talking $40 billion. I know that is the pooled money that is going to be available here. $40 billion sounds like a great deal of money, Glenn. Trust me I'm not trying to minimize what's going on here. I am saying, though, we're talking about $5 trillion worth of monies available to lend. So you've thrown $40 billion into the mix to encourage people to sort of, you know, dip their toes in the water and lend either on a short, medium or longer term basis to someone else. Now, like CNBC here, I think what's going on is skittishness and the lender is skittish to lend, the borrower is skittish to borrow and these central banks are trying to get the two together. They are trying to make it less of an issue for the lender to lend and less of an issue for the borrower to borrow. I'm trying to minimize it but I think what they are trying to do is to get past the fear. That does not mean there is no money available. There's a great deal of money available. You can look in the newspaper on any day and see the deals are popping for those who can put down 15 to 20% on a home or who meet the criteria to get a loan. For those type of people, there is no shortage of loan proceeds available. But even -- the trouble is those people are the ones who are saying, you know what, I don't know, I don't know. Very smart people, very wealthy people I know are telling me, Neil, you know, I was thinking about getting that vacation home. I'm not so sure right now. So I'm holding back. These are people who can afford and put down the down payment and not pay for the whole thing in cash, but they are just leery. So I think what central banks are trying to do, what the President is trying to do in the omnibus package, you know, to help lenders to get over the help and borrowers to get over the hump is to say, guys, the water's okay, try it. The great thing we have to get past now, Glenn, is convincing people on both sides of the deal to agree.

GLENN: Well, but you also have the problem, and I'm sorry, I apologize because we are turning into CNBC here for a second.

CAVUTO: That would never happen to you, Glenn.

GLENN: But I am concerned because -- did you read Amity Shlaes' book?

CAVUTO: Yes, I did.

GLENN: Okay. We're making the same damn mistakes that we made in the Great Depression. We've got people -- we've got politicians proposing the same kinds of things that we were proposing in the Great Depression.

CAVUTO: Right. And as she points out, we historically go through this every couple of decades and we've done this with, of course, the savings and loans back in the Eighties, we've done it with Chrysler, we've done it with Continental bank. When things get tough, we look for Draconian steps. Unfortunately we do it after the animals have left the barn. So you lock the barn good, you got the double, you know, barrel shotgun outside just in case. But the animals aren't there.

GLENN: Is it --

CAVUTO: And that is what I worry about, that the cure is worse than the disease.

GLENN: Okay. I have been saying get out of debt, just get out of debt. Part of the problem with our country is our country is, you know, spending money like Paris Hilton at a night vision video store, and we've got to stop doing that. Wrong advice, too panicky advice?

CAVUTO: Well, since I'm living in a big glass house, I'm not going to take you on on that. But I think it's true. The problem when you get out of debt is the process of getting out of debt means you free spending of an economy and when you free spending in the economy, all of a sudden the --

GLENN: I've got a small enough audience, we're not going to affect the economy.

CAVUTO: I'm not so sure about that. You have a certain best seller out there.

GLENN: I'm just saying that if, for instance, you know, don't go out and -- go buy Christmas presents. Just don't put yourself deeper into debt. Just spend at your means. Buy something that's, I don't know, $26, you know.

CAVUTO: Right, right.

GLENN: Down at the bookstore.

CAVUTO: I think this is the time everyone who buys gifts, get that thing that says "As seen on TV. "

GLENN: I think you are exactly right. All right, Neil, I want to -- and I hope this is okay with you. I guess I should have asked this prior, but I have to tell you I think I have more respect for you than anyone I have ever met in television, and I know that's not saying very much.

CAVUTO: Then you must get out more.

GLENN: I know. But you are a remarkable man. Most people don't know. I mean, they know if they read your book, that you have MS. What I didn't know is that -- may I share what happens to you sometimes?


GLENN: What you may not know if you've ever watched Neil Cavuto is sometimes his legs don't work, sometimes his arms don't work, sometimes he will go completely blind during a show for 45 minutes and just keeps going.

CAVUTO: It's a highly rated show because then they know, hey, this guy seems to be freaking out.

GLENN: Right. I think it would be kind of neat if I -- I mean, you might want to play a little game, like a game.

CAVUTO: I have. People react to it. I'm like the crazy uncle at the Christmas dinner and then we just say, hey, he's really out of it, you know.

GLENN: When somebody says, oh, Neil Cavuto, he's blind as a bat, you can say, sometimes I am.

CAVUTO: Absolutely right.

GLENN: Yeah. I just have a ton of respect for you. You know, I know you have overcome so many things and you keep getting hit with things and it never, ever stops you.

CAVUTO: That's the pot calling the kettle black, my mind. I know it sounds like mutual in my society but my wife is a huge, huge, huge fan of yours and she's tickled pink to meet you on certain occasions and, man, hasn't stopped talked about it.

GLENN: I have to tell you it's a cross I bear. I apologize. I wreck so many marriages, I really do. It's just chicks dig me.

CAVUTO: You're preaching to the choir, buddy.

GLENN: All right, Neil, thanks a lot, man. I appreciate you being on. We'll talk again soon, my friend.

CAVUTO: All right. Be well.


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?"
