GLENN: I'm so glad that you've tuned in today because we can try to make sense of this incredibly crazy world that we live in called America. I mean, you know, I've always said it's like a wormhole opened up and somehow or another I slipped into a parallel universe that kind of looks like my America but it's not. I've always said that because there's always been like one story out there. We slipped into another kind of wormhole where this doesn't look anything like my America except maybe this one thing. Like I believe this building was here yesterday, but that's about it. Everything is being flipped upside down. We have been screaming, "Get the troops out of Iraq! Get the troops out of Iraq!" Now, have you heard anybody really talking about the troops leaving Iraq? Why is that? Is it because nobody wants to declare victory? Or is it because nobody's sure it is victory, we're maybe moving out to fast? Or is it that maybe the people in the administration and congress and the elite media know that if we make a big deal out of it, it will make things worse. We make it we announce a time that we're leaving and it makes things worse. I don't know. In my America we would have announced it. It would have made a big deal out of it. They were having fireworks last night; we probably would have known about that. But in this America we're showing pictures of Michael Jackson's big mansion, where it wasn't even his. It's just where he died and where the doctor who moved him off the floor and onto the bed and tried to give him CPR on the bed, who's a cardiologist but yet not a cardiologist. Whatever. I hope they are not paying him in that inflated money to the Fed which we're about to give more control to.

Anyway, Brad Thor has a new book out. I started reading it last night. It is called The Apostle. I read about 60 pages last night, Brad. Fantastic, as your books always are. But I wanted to bring you in because I wanted to talk a little bit about what's happening over in Iraq. What do you think this means?

THOR: Well, you know, it's interesting because I was talking before I came in. This doesn't make any sense. Everything that they are saying now, "Oh, wait a second, maybe we shouldn't rush out, maybe we need to just slow down because the terrorists are going to step in and fill the "how long have we been talking about this? And how long does it take to train a soldier in America? We do it in a matter of weeks. Yet the Iraqis can't do it in a matter of years?

GLENN: That's the thing. I was just talking about this. The president also said, hey, the government, we can't sit around here and hold their hands forever; they have got to learn to stand on their own two feet. But yet we're not expecting that of the American people here. We're not expecting that of CitiBank. We're not expecting that of any of these companies. We're not expecting that of GM or anything. We're not saying there's no end game. There's no end game, yet there has to be one, quickly, in Iraq. You know, Brad, let me ask you this: How tired are you of asking yourself or your friends this one question. This doesn't make any sense to me. Does it to you? How tired are you asking that question?

THOR: I keep expecting that I'm going to wake up. I keep thinking one day I'm going to wake up and things are going to make sense because this absolutely does not make sense. But I think more and more people are starting to ask that question. I think more and more people you know, I watched, last night I got home really late and I was watching the rerun of your show last night and I sat there and I thought, you know what, you now are the left has got to be terrified. This stuff that they are trying everything's a crisis. Everything they are trying to shove through under the crisis mode, and I think the success that you're having, I think people are starting to listen now. But where do people go now? What do we do? Is it 2010 now and we vote them all out? What's the alternative? What's the next step? And that for me because none of this makes sense. For me it's what's the next step? How do we start applying common sense again?

GLENN: We just start doing it and we just demand that others do it as well. We just you know, I was saying earlier today, where are the sit ins? You know, the hippies, the hippies did it and it was easy because they just kind of were like stoned and just like, "I'm sitting down here, man." You know, we all have jobs, but where are the sit ins? Where is the

THOR: Well, we have the tea parties.

GLENN: We have the tea parties.

THOR: That's a good beginning.

GLENN: But where is the civil civil unrest? Where are the people who are going to gently disobey the laws?

THOR: You know, I think there was an e mail I got where somebody was very concerned about the amount of money that was supposedly going to our embassies abroad, and I talked to a buddy of mine who works in the embassy in Baghdad and I said, is this true? Are you guys getting all this cash? I'm hearing this rumor; what's going on? You are supposedly cash is going to the embassies and they are being told, buy a year's worth of local currency and hoard local currency. And I said what's

GLENN: Hold it just a second. Please, dear God, tell me this isn't true.

THOR: You know what, my friend would not confirm, nor would he deny this. And I've had this come at me from a couple of people who have good contacts.

GLENN: Brad, what are you doing to me? You know that will keep me up now I'll be researching that. Joe? Find out. Get a statement. We still haven't even found out about we still don't have an answer on the guys with the embezzling. Is there anything new on the bonds?

THOR: With the bond guys, the Japanese.

GLENN: Well, we don't know if they're Japanese. Now they think they may be North Korean. That was the latest we heard. But nobody will confirm.

JOE: (Inaudible).

GLENN: Well, Filipinos working for the North Koreans I thought, right? Was that right? Yeah. You know, but you can't get an answer on anything.

THOR: No, you can't. So when I heard this thing, I thought, okay, what's going on. And I talked to a friend of mine at the embassy in Baghdad and he said, listen. He says, our currency is rapidly being devalued, he said, thanks to TARP and everything else that's going on. He said, why wouldn't they because apparently they pay, the embassy pays all their local people. All the Iraqis you've got working there, they don't write them checks. They pay them in cash. And I said, well, why would you want to have a year's supply of local currency on hand unless something was going to happen? And I talked to another friend of mine and he said, well, you remember that bank holiday that happened under FDR and you couldn't go to your bank and you couldn't I said, are you telling me that you think that is coming? That all of a sudden it's going to get so bad that they are going to close banks and they are going to tell me how much I can pull out of my account? And I said that's a little far, that's a little far out. And I haven't seen enough to say.

GLENN: You know, I said, what, last fall, I said by spring of this year, by spring people will start to understand what's coming our way. And by Christmas of this coming year everyone will pretty much know what's coming our way. It is amazing to me. Stu and I just remembered that, what, just a couple of days ago? Stu, we were talking about it and I said, oh, my gosh. We were talking about how people are waking up and the sales of Common Sense are through the roof.

THOR: Yep.

GLENN: Through the roof. It's crazy what has happened in the last couple of weeks, and it's because people are waking up. People, they don't know yet. They don't know exactly what's going on. They don't know exactly what's happening, but they know something's not right and they are waking up. The second part of that was by Christmas everyone will know. And I have to tell you, I don't know what that means. I don't know what that means.

THOR: Here, my thing is and I get it. You know, in the preamble to Common Sense, your book, and we talk about a second revolution, not an armed revolution and all this kind of stuff, but I've got to tell you I'm angry. I am extremely angry. The more I study this, the more I study the progressive paradigm, I understand that constitutional democracy and socialism, there's only so much air in the room. And for one to get bigger, you have to diminish the power of the other one. It is impossible to have a system of government that promotes social equality and social justice and also defends individual liberties.

GLENN: Can't do it.

THOR: You cannot do it. And they are stealing those liberties. They are wearing them away.

GLENN: And you know what they are doing, again we were talking about this earlier today. They are wearing down the average person, and this is I have never in the last Stu said to me earlier today off the air, he said, I don't think I've ever seen you this pessimistic and, you know, I'm generally a pessimistic guy here recently on stuff. He said, I don't think I've seen you that pessimistic. And I said, misreading. It's a misreading of me. I've actually never been I haven't been in a long time this optimistic that people are waking up, and there is going to the Constitution will survive.

THOR: Yes.

GLENN: But I just am getting I'm more and more sober every day on what it's going to take, the battle to keep it. It's going to be rough going.

THOR: Yes. There is going to be an incredible reckoning in this country, and I've said this and, you know, we talked about this a week or two ago when I was with you. When I look at Obama and I look at John McCain, I actually, I'm positive that Obama was a blessing in disguise.

GLENN: Yes.

THOR: John McCain would have bled us to death with paper cuts.

GLENN: Yeah.

THOR: Obama, I'd rather have somebody walk up to me on the street and start stabbing me with a steak knife so I can have the whoa, whoa, whoa, you know, and start defending myself as opposed to

GLENN: I don't think I would say whoa, whoa, whoa, as they are stabbing me. Yeah, I would just say, help! You know, I might say that.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: But you are a little more polite than I am, whoa, whoa, whoa, stop stabbing me with a steak knife. Whoa, whoa, is there a problem here, mister?

THOR: What was Theo Van Gogh's last words? Can't we just talk about this when the Muslim put the knife into him in Amsterdam?

GLENN: It was, wait, wait, we can talk about this.

THOR: We can talk about this.

GLENN: 25 stab wounds later, no, there's nothing really to talk about here, nothing really to talk about. So Brad, before we leave this subject, what is the what's coming next, do you think? See, I love asking fiction writers because this is what you guys do for a living. You war game things.

THOR: Yeah, and you try to beat the headlines.

GLENN: And if you look at your book, you look at really a lot of the best fiction writers, the action adventure fiction writers, it's like Tom Clancy. Remember Tom Clancy they thought he was a spy for the CIA. They thought he was a CIA plant trying to throw Russia off that he was war gaming. No, he was just war gaming for fiction. So what happens next?

THOR: Well, I'm worried about what we refer to as a strategic shock. Clinton first year in office, big terrorist attack with the World Trade Center. Bush, first year in office, 9/11. I'm very concerned that President Obama has incredibly weakened this country. So from an exterior standpoint, I'm worried about a terrorist attack on American soil before the end of the first year in office for Barack Obama. I'm very, very scared about that. That is something that I actually lose sleep over. I've got a lot of you know, I've got a lot of friends and colleagues in intelligence, in the law enforcement community and I've received more e mails from these guys saying, "Be careful the next 60 days, the next 180 days. I've just got a bad feeling." And I never got those the last eight years. I didn't get stuff, "Oh, I got a bad feeling." So there is something. I don't know if it's a zeitgeist or what's going on, but everybody seems to feel something is going to happen. Now, if that's an external strategic shock like the 9/11 thing, that's one thing. I'm so concerned again with this progressive agenda, I think when people do wake all the way up, I don't know that it's going to be that peaceful. I think when people get angry

GLENN: I don't think it is.

THOR: I don't think it's going to be that peaceful. And you know what, we've been peaceful to this point.

GLENN: But we have been peaceful and docile.

THOR: Yes.

GLENN: We need to be doing something. We need to be doing sit ins. We need to be marching in the streets. We need to have the Martin Luther Kings standing on the bridge saying, "Hose me down."

THOR: Yeah.

GLENN: "But I ain't going." That's the kind of thing that we need because if we don't, we're bottling this up and bottling this up and bottling this up. When you are exactly right, Brad. When America figures out what's been done, when they when the collective wakes up and says, "Wait a minute, what does this mean?" When the collective wakes up and they start to try to sell their houses and now you've got a new federal inspector coming in saying you've got to weather strip, you've got to change your heating, you've got to change all the light bulbs before you can sell the house, when those things start to kick in and I don't think it will be that far down the road when those things start to kick in, there is going to be real true anger. And so how do we diffuse it? How do we diffuse it and yet not diffuse it in a way that I mean, I don't think it should be diffused to pet everybody and say, no, no, just sit down. People need to stand up, but we need to make sure that we're saying that encouraging people, stand up. But for the love of Pete if you think it's bad now, if there's a Timothy McVeigh out there and he does something, I'm telling you this government, under this administration, will clamp you think you've lost rights? They will clamp down so hard, you will lose rights beyond your wildest imagination. They will do it. They will do it. Because they will say it's an emergency; we have to.

THOR: Right, it's an emergency.

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.
