GLENN: Let me just real quick, a minute and a half, let's do this. I know we disagree on Arizona. I happen to believe that they are only quoting federal law and the Constitution is not a suicide pact. If the government won't enforce their own laws and they are killing my state, I mean, I'm sorry but there's got to be some remedy here. There's got to be some way I can get out of the contract with the government or force them to enforce it themselves. There's got to be some remedy. And you disagree with that?

NAPOLITANO: Well, I disagree, I disagree because — and I don't know how much time we have.

GLENN: We have about a minute.

NAPOLITANO: In 1939 when the State of Pennsylvania was looking for Nazi sympathizers amongst aliens, it required all immigrants to register in the state capital and the Supreme Court said — and this is coming from a staunch defender of state sovereignty, Glenn, as are you, that when the Constitutional Convention came together and the states formed the union, one area they legitimately gave away to the central government for good and forever, unless they leave the union, is foreign relations and the ability to regulate aliens.

GLENN: Okay. So I've got to take a break and we'll come back and I want to ask you Part 2 of that question on Arizona. Hang on.

(OUT 11:30)

GLENN: All right. In front of the Supreme Court now in Washington D.C. is Judge Napolitano. I grabbed him on his cellphone and I'm sorry to make you, Judge, sorry to make you wait here and talk to us but are —

NAPOLITANO: Are you kidding, my friend? I've been looking forward to when I can appear on your radio show.

GLENN: I have to tell you, I am — you're a guy who really, really gets it and there are very few things that we disagree on.

NAPOLITANO: There are.

GLENN: But I so respect you and your opinion. The —

NAPOLITANO: You have put me in front of some of your largest audiences. That's the respect that I know you have for me and believe me, it's mutual.

GLENN: Well, thank you, sir. Judge, I want to ask you the question that I have not heard anybody ask. And when the president said this in the press conference about the boycott of California, of Arizona, and the president in the press conference said this.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I've indicated that I don't approve of the Arizona law. I think it's the wrong approach. I understand the frustrations of the people of Arizona. And a lot of folks along the border that that border has not been entirely secured in a way that is both true to our traditions as a nation of law and as a nation of immigrants. I'm president of the United States. I don't endorse boycotts or not endorse boycotts. That's something that —

GLENN: Okay. Stop, stop. Do you see that? Did he endorse boycotts or not endorse boycotts. Isn't, isn't this what the commerce clause is really about? Shouldn't the president take a stand against state sponsored boycotts of each other?

NAPOLITANO: Yes. Yes, he absolutely should. You and I have made this argument together on the Glenn Beck program, on the Fox News Channel and we have made this argument in front of the huge audiences to which you have taken me with you around the country. When the states formed the federal government and the Constitution gave the power to the federal government to regulate interstate commerce, it meant then and if you are an originalist like justice Scalia as you and I are, it still means today to keep commerce regular, to assure individuals who want to move or trade over interstate lines that they can do so. So if an individual living in Los Angeles decides that he doesn't want to go to Phoenix on vacation because did he like this legislation in Arizona, that is his right and his privilege. But if the State of California or Orange County or the City of Los Angeles is preventing him from engaging in interstate commerce with Arizona, that is exactly the thing that the federal government came into existence to prevent from happening because the right to engage in interstate commerce is a personal, individual right that cannot be interfered with by the federal government and cannot be restrained by the states.

STU: So essentially, you know, a government couldn't — like, for example, Los Angeles saying that they are not going to do business with Arizona, doesn't that mean, though, that that would be okay under that definition because it's all right for them to say — for them to make their own decision on it. As long as the state isn't barring someone from doing business with Arizona that is

NAPOLITANO: Correct. Correct. Could the City of Los Angeles say that we as a city will not do business with Phoenix? Yes. Could the City of Los Angeles say someone subject to our jurisdiction, a person living in Brentwood, can't go to Phoenix? Of course they can't do that. And if they attempted to do it, then under the commerce clause and the cases interpreting it, it's the affirmative obligation of the federal government to stop the city, in this case the state, from interfering.

GLENN: But doesn't this violate, for the president to say, "But I don't take a stand for or against," doesn't that violate the spirit of what the president and what the federal government should be doing?

NAPOLITANO: Absolutely. And I'm saying this as someone who — well, I don't know exactly why he's opposed to it, but shares his general observation that there are constitutional problems with the Arizona statute. Put that aside. When he took an oath to uphold the Constitution, he took an oath to uphold all of it, whether it happens to be convenient to his political goals or inconvenient to his political goals. And the commerce clause was written to assure that the federal government would guarantee that there would be the freeflow of commerce between the states. That means the movement of human beings and the movement of goods unimpeded by a jealous state that doesn't want business to come from or go to another state, for whatever reason. In the old days it was tariffs. Now it's politics. It doesn't matter the reason. The job of the federal government is to keep the channels of interstate commerce open and freely flowing so that anybody who wants to engage in those channels can do so.

GLENN: Okay. Judge, best of luck. Thank you so much.

NAPOLITANO: Good to see you, my friend, thanks for having me.

GLENN: You bet. Bye bye. Judge Andrew Napolitano.

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?"

President Joe Biden just had the worst-rated week in the entire first year of his presidency, but his latest poll numbers are the icing on the cake, Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck on the radio program.

Given that polls aren’t always correct, O’Reilly explained another way to prove that Biden's first year may be worse than any other president's before him: It’s impossible to name one single contribution Biden has made to move America forward.

"Biden: There isn't anything you can point to. Not one thing ... that he's done to improve the nation. That's the test. You just step back, take emotion out of it, politics out of it, and say, give me one thing that Joe Biden has done to improve the country. Just one. And you can't do it," O'Reilly said. "And if there is, I want your listeners to contact me at BillO'Reilly.com."
