Major Garrett of FOX News Asks Barack Obama: "What Took You So Long (on Iran)?"

GLENN: Dan, do we have the question from Major Garrett yesterday? This is yesterday's press conference. Finally somebody will step to the plate and challenge, you know, that the president will actually call on. Major Garrett, here he is yesterday in the press conference.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Major Garrett, where is Major?

GARRETT: Right here. In your opening remarks, sir, you said about Iran that you were appalled and outraged. What took you so long?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I don't think that's accurate. Track what I've been saying. Right after the election I said that we had   

GLENN: Stop.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

GLENN: I want to get right to Major Garrett who is on the phone with us from Washington. How are you?

GARRETT: Glenn, I'm fine, how are you?

GLENN: Is it a little spooky at all when you are pushing him?

GARRETT: No.

GLENN: Because   it's not?

GARRETT: No.

GLENN: Because did you   and maybe this is just me. Did you notice he's   he was especially with you, but a couple of times I think he's becoming testy with people, "How dare you question me."

GARRETT: Well, I've been through this before with Candidate Obama. The last interview that I was allowed to do with Candidate Obama was in March of last year. You may have remembered it. It was about at the height of the Jeremiah Wright controversy. The campaign gave three interviews, one to Keith Olbermann, one to Anderson Cooper and one to me. I'll let you remember and perhaps you can product your audience to recall which of the three was the toughest. The Candidate Obama was not happy with that interview. I'm haven't been granted one since. I'm going to get one as the senior White House correspondent mark my words. When that will happen I'm not sure. It will be sooner rather than later but we're going to get one.

GLENN: Do you sense at all a change in his demeanor or a change in the willingness of the press to just go along with him?

GARRETT: Well, yesterday was a different press conference entirely. Anyone who watched it knows that. There's two or three reasons for that. One   and this is a reality that I try my very hardest, Glenn, not to fall prey to but I'm human like everyone else. I'd say a lot of other reporters fall prey to it. I don't know how much they resisted. I just know I resisted. But reporters watch polls and they get tougher when polls begin to turn. That's not as it should be, but that's how it is. Polling data has shown increasing skepticism of this president and his programs, not him personally. And this was inevitable. As the presidency continues, personality recedes; policy moves forward. And what happens to that policy and how the country reacts to it comes to the fore. You saw a lot more pointed policy questions yesterday of the president and more follow ups. There's another reason for that. We were in our crib, as the young people would say. We were in the briefing room. We were in the most comfortable place we can find ourselves in dealing with the president of the United States. We're not on those Louis XIV chairs, we don't have the glides, we don't have the ceremony and pomp and circumstance of a prime time national audience and all those things that tend to work to the president's benefit and to our psychological detriment.

Now, look. This is the fourth press conference. I've gotten three questions. I was skipped at the last one because the Fox broadcast network didn't carry it and that was retribution against me personally. But you look at all three questions I have asked and all the press conferences. They have all been tough, on point and newsworthy. That's what I do.

GLENN: I tell you, you and Jake Tapper I think are the only ones holding his feet to the fire. When you said yesterday, you said are you going to allow them to   are you going to allow the Iranians to go to our hot dog cookouts on Fourth of July? Are they still invited at the embassy? He had no answer.

GARRETT: No.

GLENN: That is incredible to me.

GARRETT: And all that we have is that the State Department is reviewing that. And I said to Robert Gibbs in an e mail yesterday, "Well, the president is the ultimate reviewer. Let me know when he decides." No word yet.

GLENN: Major, who is paying for these czars? Do you know?

GARRETT: The American taxpayer.

GLENN: I know that, but what department do they fall under? How are they   who do they answer to besides the president of the United States?

GARRETT: Under the Office of Personnel Management, they are executive branch employees.

GLENN: Are you at all concerned or is anybody there concerned with the growing power of the executive branch and the media seemingly just kind of turning a blind eye? Is anybody   I'm asking you as   are you feeling anything from the reporters around you like, "Gee, I don't know, maybe this might be the wrong..." or is it just polls?

GARRETT: On that particular question, Glenn, I don't detect any particular curiosity or anxiety. One of the realities of covering this White House is, and the old cliche about covering the White House, it's always like drinking through a fire hose, that's a very, very old cliche, I would say now it's like drinking some days through seven. There are so many fronts going, there are so many different things happening, and that's part of the White House strategy to move so many different   on so many different policy fronts so rapidly that, A, the political opposition that they face finds it hard to get a toehold; and B, the legislative process which they have great control over because they have sympathetic and largely compliant Democratic majorities in the house and Senate, moves their things along rapidly.

GLENN: Do you find it a coincidence that they are doing something as outrageous as giving ABC the full night to cover healthcare, that everyone is talking about healthcare, Iran or community service and yet Friday there's a vote on the Hill on cap and trade?

GARRETT: Cap and trade, absolutely. Appeared yesterday there was a significant policy development there.

GLENN: What was it? Good

GARRETT: The agriculture committee which has been resisting it now has an exemption for cap and trade carbon based levies that are related to ethanol. So now the agriculture interests are happier, Democrats are coming on board. It has a better chance of succeeding than it did a day ago. That's an enormous policy story with implications throughout the Midwest and for taxpayers across the country and for whatever our environmental policy is going to be. That's an afterthought because so many other things are happening. Of course, Glenn, I can't say outrageous or not about what ABC is doing. I'm a reporter here covering the White House. Every White House negotiates what it can and what it can most I guess effectively negotiate with networks that cover it. They negotiated this with ABC. The public will judge, I will judge, everyone can watch for themselves and draw their own conclusions.

GLENN: All right. Major, you keep it up.

GARRETT: Thanks, Glenn.

GLENN: Major Garrett with Fox News.

When Biden was given the keys to the Oval Office in January 2021, gas was $2.50 a gallon and the inflation rate was 1.4%. Today gas is at $3.32 a gallon and the inflation rate is at 7% ... and STILL RISING. These are just 12 months of numbers, but we’re clearly in a worrying decline. While the economy has opened up more post-COVID, it’s not just getting worse — we’re going IN REVERSE.

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard (and the very top of his studio ceiling) to explain what’s happening to inflation and why it’s so hard for your family to afford basic goods and groceries. It’s not “corporate greed,” as Democrats have been telling you. The Biden administration wants to continue to spend trillions of dollars to “reinvent capitalism,” but that’s in addition to the trillions that are being pumped out IN THE SHADOWS.

Glenn exposes what the Fed has been doing behind closed doors and shows us the tidal wave that’s about to hit. He’s looked at the numbers, and they're frightening. Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” gives advice to Americans who want to protect their checking and savings accounts before it’s too late.

The stock markets have taken a nosedive in the biggest downtrend since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. But that's nothing compared to what's coming thanks to our government's embrace of modern monetary theory, warned BlazeTV's Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It really is important that you understand what's happening to us," Glenn stated. "Modern monetary theory is truly the [fuel] ... for the great reset. It is the idea that we can print as much money and spend as much money as we want," he explained.

"Then the next step is to release the Federal Reserve digital currency and make payments by other currencies [including cryptocurrencies] illegal," he continued. "And you're seeing it happen now in real time. Why would they do this? Because you cannot print this kind of money without having absolute control over how it is spent."

Glenn broke down the steps powerful political organizations — like the Federal Reserve — will take to end currency competition and enact a Federal digital dollar, which will allow for the government to have complete control over how we spend our money.

"This is what's coming. This is coming quickly, and events will make it move faster. For instance, why is Joe Biden basically giving Ukraine to Russia? He's giving it to them. He he knows Russia's not afraid of him. Putin knows that [Biden] is not going to do anything ... neither is NATO. They're not going to do anything," Glenn said.

"It's because war resets everything. War is the best great resetter. Changes boundaries. It changes borders. It changes laws. It changes societies. It changes currencies. It changes everything. And in the end you just want the war to stop. And so you you accept whatever it is the terms are that you're going to have to live under now. We're in very, very dangerous times. The only way to survive this is to know why they are dangerous times."

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.
