BECK: A man who I thought I would never say -- well, I better -- I should probably define this. I was going to say a guy I never thought I would say is a friend of mine, Bill O'Reilly, is on the phone. But I don't know if I can really classify Bill as a friend because he's never going to have me over to the house. Never. Is he there? Is he on the phone? Bill?

BILL: Yeah, I hate you.

BECK: See, now, that's just a lie. You don't hate me. But you're never going to have me over.

BILL: Why not?

BECK: Come on, Bill? You really think there's a point in your life I've gone I just want to hang out with Glenn?

BILL: I don't know. I guess I could reach that point. I'm getting older.


BECK: No. Like maybe I can ask Glenn to take care of me in my old age and feed me peas.

BILL: As your memory dims you're sitting there, watching the soaps in the afternoon, your standards drop a little bit.

BECK: The one thing, when we first had dinner, we went -- my wife sat next to you at, what was that horrible -- the Correspondents dinner in Washington. We sat there and I didn't really know you. And you talked about how you were a collector of things from the founders and autographs from the presidents, all the presidents. And you talked about having an original letter from George Washington.

BILL: Yes.

BECK: I guess -- I guess this is why you don't have me as a friend. Do you mind if we talk about this?

BILL: No, I've written in "Bold Freshness" that one of my hobbies is documenting American history. So when I talk about it I know what I'm talking about. I don't want to read Howard Zinn telling me what happened because it's just a bunch of bull. I'd much rather go to the people themselves. Now that I have some money and some resources, I'm able to do that. The Washington letter I have, very interesting letter. It's written to his top spy. Washington's at Valley Forge. And he's waiting -- this is in 1778, in the spring of 1778. And he writes to his spy, Major Clough who is in Philadelphia, keeping an eye on General Howe. And word gets back to Washington that Howe's about to pull his troops out of Philadelphia, because they need more strength up in the New York area. So I have a letter that Washington writes to Clough and it says: As soon as Howe pulls out, you are to come directly here to Valley Forge, tell me how many troops he left with and what direction they're going in. But you under no circumstances are to enter the city of Philadelphia with any forces. Because Clough had some forces outside in Jersey, South Jersey, ready to go in and occupy. But Washington didn't want that, because he feared that the colonists would start hanging Tories and people who had collaborated with Howe and he didn't want any of that. One of the things I admired most about Washington, consistently, he would order his generals never to take any reprisals against not only Tories, people that sided with the British, but the British themselves. I have a letter from Horatio Gates, the second in command under Washington telling, after the Battle of Bunker Hill, telling the commander there: Do not molest any of the captured marines. That's the quote. Do not molest any of the captured marines by order of His Excellency General Washington. You can imagine how angry people were in New England, the British in Boston brutalizing, by the way, Bostonians. He didn't want any of that. When you see that kind of stuff -- I have a bunch of Lincoln stuff that indicates his state of mind, you know --


Buy tickets to the Bold & Fresh Tour

BECK: While I take some of my extra money and I buy food, you're going to be eating old documents.

BILL: Yeah, but I want your audience to picture me and you on television. You need a lot more food than I do.

BECK: See, I mean I can get this from anybody.

PAT: Was that a fat joke?

BECK: I can get this from you Pat. I don't need to get this from Bill O'Reilly.

BILL: Trying to put this thing into some kind of perspective.

BECK: Let me ask you this, Bill, because you and I agree on an awful lot. And I think you're a very, very smart man. Mainly because you really know history. But you are just I mean in the dark doesn't -- you've been sucked into a black hole when it comes to Marxists in the White House and the economy.

BILL: Who broke the Posner story this week? Come on? Who broke the Posner story?

BECK: The State Department guy?

BILL: Yeah.

BECK: Okay. There's one.

BILL: Come on. Here's the difference between you and me. So your radio audience knows. You break the Van Jones story, right? Okay. But then you extrapolate that all the people working for the Obamas are like Van Jones or sympathizers.

BECK: Sympathizers. I don't extrapolate. I play their videos.

BILL: You're entitled to your belief. You may be absolutely right.

BECK: That's a huge step. A year ago you never would have said that.

BILL: That's not true. You might be right about it. Most of the Obama administration might sympathize with Van Jones. You're speculating about that you can't prove it.

BECK: Yes, I can I've got them on tape. I have them on tape. I have them on tape saying we know that the capitalist system is dead. We know that the free market is a joke and.

BILL: You don't have everyone on tape. You have a few cranks. Let me explain it to your audience. What you do is that you assess the Obama Administration based upon the evidence that comes across your desk.

BECK: Yes.

BILL: Which is what you should do. That's why you're successful in radio and TV. So you're assessing the Obama Administration. But that assessment, after you present some of the facts, is largely speculative because you take it four or five steps down the road. I don't do that because I can't do that. What I do is take case-by-case. So I find out about this nut Posner, all right, who says to the Chinese -- the Chinese didn't even want to talk about it, by the way. They were having burgers and fries, they were happy. But president, hey, before we get to the concentration camps that you have and putting bullets into people's heads before they get across your border, brutalizing Tibet, before we get to any of that how about our Arizona law? Aren't we discriminatory? That's what this nut Posner did. And he admits it. We brought it up early and often. They didn't bring it up. We did. So he's a kook, right? And this is an Assistant Secretary of State. Okay. Then I investigate Posner. What do I find out? He's as far left as you can get. A George Sorros puppet. Sued Donald Rumsfeld for torture. You can't even imagine how far left this guy is.

BECK: Yes, I can. Probably a Van Jones sympathizer.

BILL: Right. Right. So what is this guy Posner doing negotiating with the Chinese? Why don't we get Raul Castro?

BECK: Here's the difference. Here's the difference between you and me. You'll take that evidence and then you just say it's that guy and that guy and that guy and that guy.

BILL: I go further than that. But I asked the question, "What's he doing there?"

BECK: That's all I asked.

BILL: No, no, you go "They're all communists."

BECK: No, I never do that they're not all communists.

BILL: I'm glad to hear that. Because I was worried. I was starting to believe you. I thought they might all be communists.

BECK: They might be. You might be right on that one, Bill. You might be right on that.

PAT: A year ago you wouldn't have said that, would you, Glenn.

BECK: No, a year ago I wouldn't have said that.

PAT: Bill's really brought you around. They all might be communists.

BILL: The difference is my analysis is micro and yours is macro.

BECK: Yes. I agree with that.

BILL: That's what we do. Now, is Hillary Clinton a communist? I don't know. I want to know and I'll find out tomorrow.

BECK: I never said she is. She is a --

BILL: Why would she hire this crank?

BECK: Because I don't think that they're really the ones that are putting it all -- and I know --

BILL: Hillary Clinton had to okay this hire.

BECK: She's in the Center for American progress. They're Sorros people.

BILL: Why would Hillary Clinton okay a spy?

BECK: Because she's a Sorros people.

BILL: Hillary Clinton is responsible for who's working for her.

BECK: Absolutely.

BILL: And tomorrow we've got the State Department spokesman, P.J. Crowley, on "The Factor" and I'm going to grill him and I'm going to say: Why is this guy in there? What is he doing there? But I'm not going to say to P.J. Crowley, "Hey, you Marxist." I'm not going to do that.

BECK: I never say that. Because they would never come on my show. But I would never say, "Hey, you Marxist."

BILL: But I'm not going to even get into the macro.

BECK: That's the difference. Here's the difference. And there's nothing wrong with what you do or nothing wrong with what I do. What I do is my job, as I see it, is to put the puzzle pieces together. Say you've got this guy, this guy, this guy.

BILL: I have never objected to that, Beck. I mock you, but I never object. But my job is a much more targeted thing.

BECK: Now, hang on, let me ask you this: You also have said that I was crazy, and I've noticed a huge change in you when I said this a year ago. This is before we really knew each other, and you did think I was crazy, now you just think I'm well-medicated: The economy. You are now -- you've got a much different view on the economy, because now, as you say, the stats are in. I was looking at the pieces. You're looking at the stats. And the states are coming in and you're seeing it. The Dow is down 271 points today already.

BILL: Right.

BECK: What do you think is coming, Bill?

BILL: I don't know. I mean, I can't, with any certainty, advise anyone economically. I can tell you what I'm doing, and that is I'm buying beat-up stocks right now. Not a lot. Not a lot. But certain stocks that I believe certain companies that are well-run and have a future in the marketplace, I'm buying them now. Because they're getting -- everybody's getting the hell kicked out of them. So I'm not an Armageddon guy.

BECK: I know. I am. I'm looking for the mountains to split.

BILL: I feel that Europe is a huge problem. But I also believe that the market's going to factor in starting soon, that November is going to be a very, very bad month for democrats and President Obama. If it is, if November 10 turns out to be Armageddon for the democrats, then the market will factor in Obama's defeat in 12.

BECK: We have to break. Do you think it's possible that the Euro goes away? Collapses?

BILL: No, Germany will prop those people up. Just like we're propping up some of our --

BECK: Who will prop up Germany?

BILL: We will.

BECK: Who will prop us up?

BILL: China.

PAT: Then who props up China? This ends somewhere.

BECK: Bill, we're going to be out on the Bold Fresh Tour, I'm telling you you will love the Bold Fresh Tour because Bill and I we do disagree with each other, but it's the kind of disagreement you should have. It's a respectful disagreement. And he's wildly intelligent and my intelligence goes without saying.

BILL: Father's day, great gifts. Westbury, Long Island, almost sold out already. St. Louis, Columbus, 18th of June, you better get your tickets. No whining if you don't because they're going fast.

BECK: July 31st, Westbury, New York. St. Louis on June 19th, Columbus, Ohio on June 18th. Tickets are on sale now. Find out the details for Father's Day.

BILL: Happy Father's Day. It's not Father's Day yet, but I will wish you one. See you then.

PAT: You got him to admit it's a domino effect, and we're going to think --

BECK: I think that Bill is -- he's not a head-in-the-sand guy. I thought he was. But he's not a head-in-the-sand guy. He's just a measured, very measured.

PAT: He's a we'll deal with it, when we have the evidence, when I see Germany fall and then us fall, and China falls.

BECK: Look at how far he's moved.

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.
