Congressman Poe

GLENN BECK PROGRAM


BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

GLENN: From WOW FM in Des Moines, Iowa, hello, you sick twisted freak. Welcome to the program. Glad you're here. So much to do today. We have Ted Poe on with us, Congressman Ted Poe. Is he there now? Congressman, how are you, sir?

REPRESENTATIVE POE: I am doing excellent, thanks.

GLENN: I'm so glad to have you on, and I have to tell you, sir, out of all of the people that are in Washington, you are really, truly one of the good guys and one of the brave people that we have in congress and you just never seem to be willing to give up on different issues and you also don't come down seemingly party lines. You will take on right and wrong first, not left and right.



Congressman Ted Poe (R - TX)

REPRESENTATIVE POE: Well, that is correct, but most issues are right and wrong, not partisan at all and you just have to do what's right for the people and for the country.

GLENN: Well, I wanted to talk to you about this one and this is really disturbing to me. It's a story of Jamie Leigh Jones. We talked about her yesterday. She was brutally, brutally raped in Iraq by Halliburton employees. Do we know if these employees were Americans?

REPRESENTATIVE POE: We don't know. They probably were but they may not have been. There were more than -- there were several of them and some of them may have been Iraqis or some other nationality.

GLENN: Okay. But she was brutally raped. Then she went to the hospital, got a rape kit. She then went back. It's my understanding that Halliburton took that rape kit, she's never been able to have the rape kit, she was thrown into a cargo container, one of those big container units that, you know, they put on big ships. She was locked in there, given a bed, couldn't use a phone. A guard took pity on her and gave her the phone. She called her father. Her father called you, but this was two years ago, right?

REPRESENTATIVE POE: That is correct.

GLENN: And nothing has happened since then. You were on top of it right away and you were responsible for getting her out. What happened?

REPRESENTATIVE POE: Well, as soon as I got the call from her father who was, you know, tremendously excited and worried, we contacted officials at the State Department and within 48 hours they had two agents there in Baghdad and found her, rescued her. And she needed much more medical attention, and she received that and finally was brought back to the United States very shortly thereafter.

Then things seemed to have just fallen off the radar. We've tried to find out what has happened to the perpetrators, these criminals. Who are they, where are they and what has been done, and really haven't gotten satisfactory answers. And so we've pursued it through the State Department now, through the new attorney general, and the Justice Department is now moving on the case to find out where these criminals are and who are they so they can be prosecuted.

GLENN: What does this say to you? I mean, here I'm a guy, I've defended Halliburton when I felt they needed to be defended and, you know, I watched the news last night, Congressman, and I saw something. What was it, on waterboarding. I know where I stand on waterboarding and I'm watching it like, okay, I don't really know who to believe anymore because I'm not getting the truth very often. What does it tell you how something like this could happen to an American citizen with most likely American employees and an American company and nobody pursues it for two years?

REPRESENTATIVE POE: It's very disappointing and it's unfortunate. You'd think in a situation like that, that a 22-year-old female that's been sexually assaulted, really brutalized, that not only our government but the corporation that she works for would side with her and do everything possible to make sure her medical needs were met and the people who did this were held accountable, but --

GLENN: They didn't only rape -- the employees raped her, but the company kidnapped her, imprisoned her.

REPRESENTATIVE POE: Held without her will, hostage, and that is -- and not in a room but in a container, a cargo container, as you said. It's just the worst of everything that happened to this wonderful person.

GLENN: So what happened? When you have been pushing for the last two years, "Hello, is somebody looking into this," what has happened along the way? What kind of answers are you getting from anybody?

REPRESENTATIVE POE: No answers at all. I suspect that there has been some preliminary investigation, but the point is I want results. We need results and what are the results. And we haven't heard those results. And what probably, what I think has really made this thing now take some initiative, because of the right of privacy that she's had and we have, you know, kept her identity and situation confidential, as we should, but when she decided to go public and let the world know what happened to her, now we are able to make sure that the federal government says, understands that this is something now the American people know about happened and they want some results.

GLENN: I have to tell you, you know, there's -- I got mail from people who questioned her credibility, why is she going public. Wouldn't you? If you waited two years for the Government to take care of it, wouldn't you? I don't think I would have waited two years.

REPRESENTATIVE POE: Well, a lady in that situation who's brutalized and, you know, thousands of miles from home and has nobody and alone, we can't really second-guess what she does as a sexual assault victim. She did what she thought was best. And we didn't get any results from our government and so she's made the choice to go public, which is a difficult situation for any sexual assault victim to do, and whether this happened or not, well, the proof is in the medical. The medical reports are -- without question show that she was brutalized over there in Iraq and now people need to be brought to court and held accountable and let's air it publicly now and find out who was there, who was responsible and why nothing happened until recently.

GLENN: I read a report and I believe it was a State Department person said that nobody really even broke the law because the laws of Iraq can't be enforced and the laws of the United States don't apply. Is there any truth to that?

REPRESENTATIVE POE: No. As a former judge and prosecutor, there is federal law that applies to this case and here's the reason. The jurisdiction of where this happened in the green zone, in Camp Hope in Baghdad is under the jurisdiction of the State Department and since it's under the jurisdiction of the State Department, federal law does apply and people can be prosecuted for crimes against American citizens.

GLENN: How ironic that it happened at Camp Hope. How far up the chain does it have to go before someone can quash an investigation like this?

REPRESENTATIVE POE: It could happen anywhere up and down the chain. I don't know where it fell apart. Probably initially it fell apart over in Baghdad. But now the attorney general, the new one is aware of this. We want --

GLENN: Hang on. Are you implying that the last attorney general you don't think was aware of it?

REPRESENTATIVE POE: I don't know about the last one, but the new one is hopefully the new one.

GLENN: Oh, you at Camp Hope, here, let me put you in a container, for the love of Pete.

Congressman, you know and I know we are dealing with something that is -- I mean, I don't want to sound like a conspiracy theorist because I'm not. I don't want to believe the things that I am beginning to believe because it's on the verge of insanity, but I have to tell you, at best our government is making so many bad steps that it makes them look like there is a shadow power that is not doing the American thing, has no one to answer to except themselves. We're seeing it with the fence in Mexico, we're seeing it with the still 21 missing Americans that have been kidnapped across our border and no one's doing anything about it. We're seeing it with this. A company can actually hold someone, kidnap them, hold them against their will and the government does absolutely nothing, and a congressman like you is beating the drum and beating the drum and you can't get any answers, who the hell has power in this country?

REPRESENTATIVE POE: Well, the people still have the power and we are going to get answers in this situation. In fact, Chairman Conyers of the judiciary committee is contemplating holding congressional hearings on this case and other similar cases that have happened overseas very shortly and I hope he does that.

GLENN: Wait. Other similar cases involving Halliburton?

REPRESENTATIVE POE: Involving corporations that have American contracts to work overseas and crimes committed against American citizens overseas.

GLENN: Is this -- please tell me this is the worst you've seen.

REPRESENTATIVE POE: This case?

GLENN: Yes.

REPRESENTATIVE POE: No question about it, you know.

GLENN: Okay.

REPRESENTATIVE POE: I have four kids. Three of them are daughters about Jamie's age.

GLENN: No, no, I don't mean that. I mean, please tell me there's not another shoe that's going to drop that makes this one look like nothing in comparison. Please tell me that this is the worst-case scenario of what we're looking at. You're not telling me there are other cases where companies are kidnapping Americans and holding them against their will or anything like that, are you?

REPRESENTATIVE POE: No. We've had some reports of other Americans having crimes committed against them overseas and working their contractors or subcontractors and so that's what we want to investigate to see if this is -- how widespread it is.

GLENN: Congressman, I am -- honestly it's people like you that give me hope in our country because I think we're entering a dangerous period. I think our Government has made so many mistakes, our corporations. I mean, I'm a capitalist, man. I love capitalism. I mean, I am all for corporations make the world a better place until they get out of power and that power, when it swings too far one way, it's going to swing just as far the other way and that's danger. I am concerned that we are more vulnerable because of the disconnect that the American people feel for their government and from each other. I feel we're more vulnerable today than we were on 9/11 -- or not vulnerable but fragile. Do you feel that way? Talk me down from that insanity tree.

REPRESENTATIVE POE: I do, too. I, like you, am a conservative, capitalist, free enterprise and all of those things. But what has occurred in my opinion is that there is a lack of trust with our government and the people in control by the people. We just don't really trust what we hear and what is said or what we even see, and it's these types of situations that we're talking about now that just continue to make us lose confidence in the people who are running the show.

GLENN: You know, let me switch gears here with you for a second if you don't mind going down the waterboarding road with me. Waterboarding, everybody was on board when this particular case happened. It was effective. I don't believe waterboarding is torture. Some do. That's okay. That's a debate. But now it's being played as if it was the evil United States torturing people when everyone was on board because we thought another attack was right around the corner.

REPRESENTATIVE POE: That's correct. The people are switching sides on this very issue and many people talk about waterboarding. They don't even know what it is but they --

GLENN: Do you believe it's torture?

REPRESENTATIVE POE: I don't believe it's torture at all, I certainly don't. You know --

GLENN: You know, I've wondered because it does know physical damage. It supposedly freaks the living daylight out of you but it does no damage to you physically. I'm wondering. All of these news people always line up to get themselves tasered: You know, hey, let me show you what it feels like. I know some of our troops, correct me if I'm wrong. If you're in special forces, this stuff is done to our own troops to say, "I want you to know what's coming."

REPRESENTATIVE POE: That's right. They are subject to waterboarding so they know exactly what happens to a person if they're captured. Of course, we know our enemies really don't capture Americans. They execute them. But I think this is something that's trying to inflame people and trying to treat our enemies with kid gloves, people who hate us and want to kill us and now it's the popular thing to say, oh, America's engaged in torture of prisoners, and waterboarding, as most people in congress have said earlier, is not torture as some imagine.

GLENN: And it's when you put a towel, a wet towel over someone's head and hold it there, you strap them down and then you pour water on the towel and it creates the sensation of drowning, correct?

REPRESENTATIVE POE: That's my understanding of it. And people start giving information when that happens.

GLENN: Congressman, you stay in touch with us and you let us know how we can help on this case. I think this is outrageous and don't you dare give up, sir, until you find the answers.

REPRESENTATIVE POE: We're not going to ever give up.

GLENN: Do me another favor, sir. I don't know if you feel comfortable answering this question. So many people want answers, they want to know who to trust, this he want to know who's the best on the border. Do you have somebody that you look at as a candidate and say, this is the guy who gets it; this is the guy who will -- this is the guy who will do it? Do you have anybody yet?

REPRESENTATIVE POE: No, I haven't thrown my support by any means behind any candidate. So I'm still waiting to see.

GLENN: Yeah. Okay, thank you very much.

REPRESENTATIVE POE: Okay.

GLENN: You bet, bye-bye. Congressman Ted Poe who is quite honestly I think an American hero today.

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?"
