Glenn talks with Stephen Moore about the economy

GLENN: Radio City was built in the 1930s to house network radio shows. The United States government got involved and said you can't do that and so Radio City never had network radio shows in it that broadcast daily until today, putting the radio back into Radio City. Hello and welcome to the program. My name is Glenn Beck. I am so glad that you're here.


 


 Stephen Moore is one of the big cheeses over at the Wall Street Journal. He started Club For Growth, he's an optimist on the economy, right, Stephen?


 


 MOORE: Well, you know, I mean, I'm getting a little more sour every day in the stock market. By the way, Glenn --


 


 GLENN: You are starting to come my way, aren't you, baby?


 


 MOORE: You made election coverage so much fun last night. I mean, this is the way to coverage elections. So congratulations on a great night last night.


 


 GLENN: Thank you. I don't know if a soul watched it but we had fun. So Stephen, let me first start with what the heck happened with the Dow yesterday?


 


 MOORE: Well, you know, I think you put your finger on the problem that we got in Washington right now which I think is depressing the stock market which is, you know, it used to be we the people in this town and now it's we the special interest groups.


 


 GLENN: Yeah.


 


 MOORE: And we have a budget that is out of control, we have politicians that keep saying that they can give out political favors like their candy, you have the major Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. I don't know if you saw this week, Glenn, when she said that we may have to garnish people's wages to pay for her healthcare plan. I mean, this is insane kind of talk out of major candidates.


 


 GLENN: How long before the business community says, good God almighty, we have got to pull our money out of the United States and put it some place else?


 


 MOORE: Well, you know, that's really a big problem with the U.S. economy right now because as you and I have talked about before on this show, the biggest sickness on this economy over the last few years has been the fall on the value of the U.S. dollar. Our dollar is depreciating in value and when that happens, it means that investors from around the globe find America to be a less attractive place to invest in and foreign investment over the last, you know, 20 years has been one of the engines for our growth. If foreigners pull out because of fears of higher taxes or government-run healthcare system or our budget run amuck, that's going to bring the economy down.


 


 GLENN: Okay. So I said earlier today, Stephen, that you know, you get government healthcare in with Obama or Hillary Clinton and I said, it ain't gonna last and here's why, and please talk me down from this tree if I'm wrong.


 


 MOORE: I'll try.


 


 GLENN: Here's why it won't last. Because you cannot put something that large on the table without addressing Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security already. The credit of the United States will be downgraded, the rest of the world will know we're not serious by any stretch of the imagination. In a very short period of time foreign governments will say, I'm not loaning these people any money because they can't pay it back.


 


 MOORE: Well, I don't know if this answer's going to talk you down from the ledge but, you know, we just had the President's budget came out $3.1 trillion. That's up from $1.9 trillion just seven years ago. So that's a pretty fat increase. And President Bush had a proposal. I mean, it really accentuates the point you're making. President Bush said instead of having Medicare grow by 8% per year, let's let it grow by just 5 1/2% per year. And my God, the interest groups and the Democrats and the liberals said this is going to be the end of civilization if we only allow the Medicare program to grow by 5 1/2% per year. I mean, it's just, I can't describe to you the insanity of the way these people spend money. They think money is free in this town.


 


 GLENN: All right. So Stephen, please speak clearly to the average person.


 


 MOORE: Right.


 


 GLENN: Because the average person says, well, we've always had deficits, we've always never had too much money, it's always worked out, it's always... what is coming is dramatically different. Yes or no?


 


 MOORE: Well, it is because when you talked about the healthcare system and both Hillary and Obama have plans to nationalize healthcare, that is almost 15% of the U.S. economy. If we socialized our healthcare system, I mean, what's next? Are we going to socialize the automobile industry? Are we going to socialize the computer industry? Are we going to socialize steel production and so on? We are not a socialist country but what's scary is a lot of voters say they want to take America down a socialistic road. At the same time most countries are moving away from socialism because it doesn't work!


 


 GLENN: Okay. Two things. Yesterday there was -- and I don't know that -- you know the people who give the ratings for the bond insurers?


 


 MOORE: Yes.


 


 GLENN: They made an announcement yesterday, because I've been watching this and I'm such a novice on this. I've been watching the bond market because it's my understanding that if the insurers are downgraded and these bonds lose their AAA status, a lot of these retirement funds are going to be forced to dump these bonds because they can't hold them anymore and this is a really bad thing.


 


 MOORE: Well, it's really bad and it's bad because if the U.S. Government were to lose its AAA bond rating and I don't think it's going to happen anytime soon but if we continue on this path, it will happen. What it means is not only will we be borrowing trillions of dollars, Glenn, it also means that we're going to have to pay more interest on that. So it becomes a cycle, you know, it becomes a destructive cycle of higher interest rates and higher debt.


 


 GLENN: Right. But what I'm talking about specifically are the municipal bonds, the ones where these insurance companies are now being downgraded. Yesterday, I don't know if you saw this, one of the big, you know, ratings company said we're putting them on hold or we're putting them on notice, which is the intermediate step of basically warning people we're going to down grade these bonds.


 


 MOORE: Right.


 


 GLENN: Is that true or false or what is going on there?


 


 MOORE: Well, I'm not sure of the specific story you're talking about but, you know, you have both the federal debt that we were talking about and then, you're right, you have states and localities that do billions of dollars of borrowing, too. And the problem for the states and localities is that, you know, their primary source of income is property taxes. But when you have a housing crisis like we do now where housing values are declining, that means that people pay less property taxes because their house is worth less. And guess what. That means that states and cities have a very difficult time paying their bill. The state to really pay attention to is California. I mean, my goodness. California already has a $14 billion deficit and it's growing every week.


 


 GLENN: Yeah, the whole -- I love this story today. The Hollywood homes have lost 48% of their value. Did you see that story?


 


 MOORE: You know, I mean, it couldn't happen to a nicer group of people.


 


 GLENN: Let me ask you. Scale of 1 to 10, 10 being Armageddon, 1 being Ronald Reagan with a Republican congress that was in control, rate the candidates on what they are going to do to the economy.


 


 MOORE: Well, I think, you know, the interesting kind of thing on the Democrat side of the aisle is that Obama's actually moved more to the middle on economics and Hillary has moved way to the left. So I would say that -- wait. What's the worst score?


 


 GLENN: 10 is Armageddon.


 


 MOORE: Okay. 10 is Armageddon. So I give Hillary about a 9. I would give Obama about an 8 because he wants to cancel the Bush tax cuts and raise capital gains and raise the payroll tax. And I give John McCain about a, maybe a 3 or 4.


 


 GLENN: That's not as bad as I thought. Maybe I'm a McCainiac. Stephen Moore, thank you. We'll talk again, my friend.

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."
