GLENN: Let me go to Brad Thor who is coming in in just about 13 minutes and he's going to be doing a special program for the Insiders at GlennBeck.com. How are you doing, Brad?

THOR: I'm doing well, Glenn, how are you?

GLENN: Very well. Brad's one of my favorite fiction thriller writers. When is your new book coming out?

THOR: Comes out in less than two weeks, the apostle.

GLENN: The apostle? This is the one where you went over to Afghanistan, right?

THOR: It is.

GLENN: And you lied to me as a friend?

THOR: I lied to everybody because I didn't want you know, you are one of the people who would have said, go, have a good time, you are one of the professionals. I went over and chatted for the bedrock of this thriller and one of the things they said was obviously you've got to tell your wife but if any more people you tell than that, you were going to spend the next three months having them say, what, are you crazy? Don't go. Because I live in Chicago, they figure out

GLENN: Yeah, don't go back to Chicago; what, are you crazy? What do you mean you're going back to Chicago? Stay in Afghanistan!

So did you find over there?

THOR: You know what, it's very interesting. By being with some guys who are working on the black side, we were not operating on an operating basis. We were going out into Indian country, saw Taliban, all that kind of stuff. What I found is the Afghans are amazing people. Afghanistan's an incredible country, and we need to get men and women out into the countryside developing relationships on the village level so that we can find out, hey, you know, Ahmed's got a bomb factory down the road here and he's going to set these IEDs off along this one particular road and wait for the next American envoy to come through. The intel's not going to walk into the bases. That's one of the biggest things that I learned there.

GLENN: How safe are our troops under this administration, where we just sold $108 billion line of credit for the photos of Abu Ghraib? Did you know that?

THOR: I have listen, we are projecting weakness left, right and center. I'm a big believer Ralph Peters, who is a military person for Fox, Ralph had a great, great article a couple of years ago called Kill, Don't Capture. And I am a big fan of that. We extend we hobbled ourselves with the way we conduct our affairs in warfare.

GLENN: Do you think we're over in Iran?

THOR: I think we should be. My goodness.

GLENN: Yeah, I know we were under Bush.

THOR: I mean, Bob Baer would be the perfect guy to ask that question. And I'm sure we've got people over there but, boy, I tell you they ought to be loading up private jets and getting them as close to the border as we can and putting our CIA operatives in there. The time is right to be doing something.

GLENN: So let me play it the other way because I had a guy who do you know what CAG is?

THOR: Yep.

GLENN: Those are the Mission Impossible people.

THOR: I just had dinner with a CAG guy two nights ago. These are the guys who were sent in, in situations like this. These are the guys. At least this is the circle that when things are going down, these guys go in when the time is right and just push a little bit.

THOR: Right, help destabilize and just push.

GLENN: Had a guy sat with tears running down his cheeks saying, these are the circles I play in, played in them for years. We watch the news. We know. We know, when I see things in other countries, I know we're going in. Now is the time. I've done it for years. Tears start rolling down his cheeks and he says, "Other countries are doing that to us right now. They are looking at the news and seeing us and go, go in."

THOR: Absolutely.

GLENN: Do you think they are here?

THOR: I have no doubts. I think they're here. I think some of them even hold public office. That's how serious I am about it.

GLENN: You hang on just a second. You're saying foreign operatives hold office?

THOR: I think we have people here who hold office who are under the influence of foreign operatives. I don't think it's a lot but I think there are a handful of them. I think they have been here for a while. You know this whole idea that we were not going to turn to socialism overnight but we were going to do it drop by drop like water on a stone, spoonful by spoonful. Listen, if you understand and Glenn, I've got to tell you one of the neatest things about becoming friends with you has been my desire to learn more about politics, the history of my country. You know, your admission, your frank admission that it was 9/11 turned you, you started reading a lot more. I have felt like I was in a car circling the parking lot looking for a parking space waiting to get to the park. So Liberal Fascism, read it. 5,000 Year Leap, the Conservative Mind, I've gone on and on and on and on. And the more I learn about constitutional democracy and what we have versus the progressive agenda, socialism, which I believe is the end goal of the Democratic Party.

GLENN: Absolutely.

THOR: I really do believe that's what it is. They have both come

GLENN: It's not socialism. It's progressivism. It's administered socialism.

THOR: It's statism.

GLENN: Yeah, it's fascism. If it hadn't been for Mussolini and the whole, you know, hanging by piano wire and Hitler thing, we would still be using the word "Fascism" for what they want.

THOR: Well, look at the cover that Hitler got here from the intelligence here, the elites.

GLENN: Absolutely.

THOR: He's just a he needs to help Germany get back on its feet.

GLENN: Do you know, we have all these czars?

THOR: Yeah.

GLENN: Do you know what they were called back under FDR?

THOR: No. What were they called?

GLENN: Dictators. Not kidding you, actually called dictators. There was the dictator of lumber, there was the dictator of cars.

THOR: Really?

GLENN: Swear to God, called dictators. And yet these same progressives now will say we were never in love with fascism. Dictators, that's ridiculous. No, no, they loved that system until it was discredited.

THOR: Well, and what you see, Glenn, I'm always looking to connect the dots and what I see is you've got this group that think they are smarter than everybody else. The common concern can't do it for themselves, they're smarter, which is why Obama has were you told in quote/unquote smart people who have no experience to do what they are going to do for this country.

GLENN: Exactly right. Back in just a second.

Chances are, you've noticed that many large companies have decided to become woke activists, despite the fact that alienating half your customer base is a terrible business strategy.

This woke shift isn't being driven by the usual market forces. It's the Great Reset's ESG score system at work, Glenn Beck said on "GlennTV." Under the “environmental, social, and governance” score system, companies will no longer make decisions based on what you, the consumer, want. Now, it's all about what those in power deem society should want. And it's not just businesses that are affected, he explained.

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.
