Senator Hutchinson



BECK: We have Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison in with us, spend a few minutes. She's written a new book called Leading Ladies and I actually would like to start there. I've got a lot of things I want to start with you about but I want to start on your book because I just said to my audience, I don't know, about a half an hour ago that I have decided that I am going to put together a library at my home of kind of a freedom library of important books to teach my children the true history of America because it's not being taught anywhere anymore. These universities are completely out of control. And the truth needs to be told about American heroes and Patriots and who we really, truly are. Is your book something that would be something I would include in that library?

HUTCHISON: Yes. Yes, Glenn. It has the stories of women who have broken the barriers in science, in medicine, women who served in the military as far back as the Revolutionary War because they believed in the cause. And women have been among our greatest spies in all the wars. One of the great spies, Virginia Hall, the Gestapo put out in World War II a flier all over France saying the woman who limps is the most dangerous allied agent; find and destroy her. Because she had shot herself in the leg in a hunting accident. So she limped. She had a false leg. The United States at first wouldn't hire her because the foreign service wouldn't allow people with artificial limbs.

BECK: Right.

HUTCHISON: So she went into the OSS for Great Britain and she was such a fabulous spy. She spoke French, Italian and German and she was reporting back from conversations that soldiers were having in the marketplace and nobody ever knew she was there.

Leading Ladies: American Trailblazers

by Kay Bailey Hutchison

BECK: Do you think we have the same number of ?? 

HUTCHISON: We have so much celebration of movie stars and rock stars and people who may not be doing heroic things but they are sports stars and so we're not focusing on the people who do great things.

BECK: But it doesn't really ?? does it matter anymore about, I was flabbergasted. When I saw you were coming in today and talking about this book, I thought, what an appropriate time for us to address this. Last week we had two women pilot the space shuttle, two women.


BECK: It got no media coverage. I mean just maybe a passing mention here and there. Nancy Pelosi makes it a huge deal that, you know, she's the Speaker, the first woman Speaker of the House. You know, Hillary Clinton, are we ready for a female President, I think that we have two astronauts piloting the space shuttle shows there is no real glass ceiling except in some people's own perception. When it comes to politics, it seems to matter. When it comes to real accomplishments in space, nobody cared.

HUTCHISON: Well, that's an interesting observation. I do think the glass ceiling is now shattered in almost every field, but I also think, Glenn, it is so important that our young people know that that's not because it's easy.

BECK: Oh, no, no, no, I know that.

HUTCHISON: You have to have perseverance. You are going to have setbacks in life. Every successful person does. And you need to have the history of the people, women here, who have broken these barriers because they never gave up. We need that in our society, too.

BECK: Yeah. But there's a difference between ?? I mean, that's with anything. That's with anything. You can't give up. You've got to persevere, you've got to keep going. Just when you think this is it; I'm not going to be able to do it another day, something happens and you break through another wall. That's not just a woman thing. I mean, I think we've ?? you know, people who say, you know, they can't vote for a woman President, I don't understand that. There's a lot of people that wouldn't vote for ?? Hillary as a President but would vote for Condoleezza Rice. Can we have a first black President? Of course we can. Just give me somebody really qualified. I don't care what they look like.

HUTCHISON: Exactly. And that has the right vision for our country. And I agree with you 100%. I don't think talking about the first woman anything is going to be relevant in five or ten years because you're going to be judged on what you believe, what you envision for our country, what you would do, what is your agenda. That's what people are looking for, how is it going to affect each individual.

BECK: Let me switch topics here. Let me go to ?? because you're from Texas. Texas is ?? 

HUTCHISON: Great flag right here in the studio, Come and Take It from the Alamo.

BECK: Yeah, in New York City they don't understand this flag. But I lived in Texas for a while and I know Texas has always had a secede kind of attitude, Texas secede but it's never really been serious. Never really been serious. It's just an independent spirit. And I have never been to a state that is more American than Texas, in the way that they love their state, they don't ?? they think it's the best, but it's not at the expense of other states, you know? They are not ever putting other people down. They're just saying ours ?? yours might be great but nothing's better than the State of Texas

With that being said, in the last six months or so (lapse in audio) There are some crazies who are so concerned that we have lost control of our country that they were saying things to me like, when do I gather my guns, when do I have to go out and take my country back? And it's because the border is out of control. What is it going to take for people in congress to understand "Secure the border first and then let's deal with these other issues."

HUTCHISON: Glenn, you are absolutely right and the people are absolutely right. Securing the border is out of control and congress is unable to grapple with it. It is congress' responsibility.

BECK: Why?

HUTCHISON: We have advocated that responsibility. It's because of the amnesty issue. There's a huge disagreement that puts everything in deadlock. The people who supported the bill last time that tried to do it all at once failed because of the amnesty portion.

BECK: But don't you ?? I mean, who in Washington doesn't understand that there are those who are against amnesty for ?? in all cases. However, I believe a greater number of Americans would be willing to consider some of these amnesty issues if you said ?? not said ?? proved that it was done, there wouldn't be another wave of illegal immigrants, that we had our borders completely secure. Then you would say, okay, now we have to deal with ?? you know, for instance in the DREAM Act, I know where you stand on the DREAM Act. You voted against ?? correct me if I'm wrong. You voted against the DREAM Act but you would look into having somebody who was brought in as a youth. I think if you were brought here in your ?? you were 3 years old and now you're 20 and you can't get a college education, well, we do have to talk about what we're going to do with you but not now. Not now. Secure the border first. How will they not get that?

HUTCHISON: I don't think that enough senators and maybe members of the House, I'm not sure, but not enough are really dealing with the immigration issue as the crisis that it is:

BECK: But the crisis into perspective for me. Compare it to something else that you've seen in your career.

HUTCHISON: It's the toughest issue that I have dealt with in my career. The war on terror is very tough and it's an overriding issue for our country and that one is one that everybody does know is the most important overriding issue of our country. The most important domestic issue of our country is illegal immigration. It is only congress' responsibility and yet congress is deadlocked and they are deadlocked on the amnesty part and there are some who believe that you have to do the whole thing at once. I do not. I think we have to do piecemeal. We have to do border security first because if people think that there is a credibility that our border is secure, finally done the job, then I think we can consider the guest worker program for those going forward to fill the jobs that are not going to be filled. When the price of corn and beef and lettuce and oranges goes triple and quadruple because we don't have people willing to pick those products, then people are going to start getting it. When the people don't show up at the restaurants and so you don't have waiters and you have to shut down the restaurant, which is happening in some parts of our country ?? 

BECK: Look, I have no problem. I'll pay four times for an orange rather than have it picked by a slave and that is exactly what these corporations are doing to illegal immigrants that are coming here and working for slave wages, and it is wrong and it is immoral what we allow our businesses to do so they can make a buck and we can have cheap oranges.

HUTCHISON: Well, even if you are paying a livable wage, which many do, the workers are not doing it. We cannot get Americans that do it.

BECK: That's why you make the door bigger.


BECK: You put the fence up, you stop illegal immigration ?? 

HUTCHISON: And you have a regulated process so that people come in here, a guest worker program. It doesn't have to be a permanent citizenship track. Most people don't want that. They just want a job.

BECK: All right. We're talking to Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison. She's got a new book out called Leading Ladies. Why is the media and why is no one in congress showing us the truth about the violence on the border? That today is coming out with numbers that shows illegal immigrants have been reduced. Part of that is because the drug cartels have taken over some of these areas and Laredo, Nuevo Laredo is more dangerous than Baghdad is and yet nobody seems to be concentrating on the real danger in our society that is right there between the drugs and the cartels and the gangs and everything else. Why? Why is that absent from the debate?

HUTCHISON: Well, I don't think it is. I certainly know how dangerous the border is and the drug cartels, that's true, and I think that that is one of the reasons why I'm so strong on trying to do what is our responsibility on illegal immigration, but I think it is very important that we realize that these drug cartels are serious and we haven't had the cooperation from the Mexican government to be able to stop this, and we are now looking at ?? let me just throw this at you. We're looking at, for the first time, giving money to Mexico to clamp down on the drug cartels, and that's a controversy, too, because many people are concerned that it will never get to stopping the cartels.

BECK: Why should we believe? It's a corrupt society. Why would we believe that that money could ?? I mean, look how many times they put a cop in and they're killed.

HUTCHISON: You know, the question is what is the best approach. We have never put American money into stopping the drugs on the other side of the border before, but it is coming forward from the administration and, you know, we're going to have to look at it. I want to see where the money's going to go and how it's going to be distributed because if it's not going to get to the people who are enforcing the law so that they can stand firm against these ?? these drug dealers are just, well, they're gangs, they are. They're ?? 

BECK: They're beheading people right on our border.

HUTCHISON: Just like al Qaeda.

BECK: There are more Americans kidnapped on the border in South Texas than there are in the Middle East. There are more Americans kidnapped. I don't understand how we're not focusing on this. Let me go ?? 

HUTCHISON: I hope we are.

BECK: Let me go back here real quick on one thing that's kind of related to the book on the importance of women. I believe that the real solution in the Middle East is empowering women. If we empower women, everything will change. It's changed all over the world when you empower women. Have you ever asked or heard an explanation on where is the National Organization of Women? Where are these big women power groups speaking out against Islamo-Fascism?

HUTCHISON: Well, let me say you're right on. In fact, it is proven that in societies where women are able to work, they're able to be educated, they are able to be a part of society, the economic output and production in those countries is proven to be more, to be better. Where women are suppressed as they are in the Middle East, you find a lower output, you find the economic production low and, of course, you also see violence and a continuing cycle of denigrating women. It is amazing. Now, there are women's groups like Vital Voices is a wonderful international organization that is trying to empower women. Laura Bush is speaking out to try to help the treatment of women. If we can promote education of women so that they can be doctors and be a part of society, they can be teachers, the whole economic level of the Middle East will improve, not to mention a better quality of life and hopefully a strengthening of a society against these terrorists.

BECK: The name of the book is Leading Ladies by Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison. Thank you for being on the program. You are leaving the Senate?

HUTCHISON: Well, 2012. Yes, this was not a big announcement. Just don't plan to run again.

BECK: All right. Well, are you going to maybe run for governor of Texas?

HUTCHISON: Possibly, possibly. I would love to be able to do something for my state that I love so much.

BECK: Good. Nice to have you here. Thank you very much, Senator.

HUTCHISON: Thank you.


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?"
