GLENN: I had breakfast with two friends that I want to introduce you to. Let me start here. It was how many months ago? Was it summer? Was it summer Greg?

Greg: I think it was summer.

Glenn: Was it fall? I was asked to speak at the NRA convention in Washington DC and so I went down and I could only get down and I didn't have time to, you know, get in early and so I missed everybody else's speeches and I get there just after and I talked to you about it just after Sergeant first class Greg Stube had gotten off the stage and everybody was just raving about this guy. Oh, my gosh. Blah blah blah. I go backstage and I'm listening to him talk to the people backstage and I didn't realize that his wife was standing about 6 feet behind him, but he told the story about a battle in Afghanistan. It was the largest battle with Al Qaeda in the history of the war at the time.

Greg: Battle against Taliban in Afghanistan.

Glenn: And so is it still the biggest one?

Greg: As far as I know.

Glenn: Okay. And how many days did it last?

Greg: It was about six days of intense fighting.

Glenn: Uh huh. And five days into it

Greg: It was on the fifth day, yes.

Glenn: What happened?

Greg: Well, I got hit by an IAD while we were climbing a hill that was to be the final objective for the battle. That hill was called Sperwin Gar. Going up that hill to support some dismounts on the other side and I got hit by a roadside room that was remotely did he tell natured and then got shot a couple of times crawling away.

Glenn: And what happened when this explosion went off, it took some rockets and other things and it actually the rockets, if I'm not mistaken, went through you, went through your leg, in through the cavity of, you know, where your intestines and everything else are. Right?

Greg: Right. A lot of stuff went through me.

Glenn: And so basically there's a rocket imagine this. If you're sitting down in a Humvee and it goes through the back of your leg, your butt, and goes through the front of you and it's rocketed and it is spilling out in it diesel fuel and also rocket fuel inside of your body is now diesel fuel and rocket fuel and it's on fire. That's what this man endured and then he gets out of the Humvee, he's crawling away. You're shot. You live. You're completely aware. Your leg was was it almost amputated or

Greg: Yes. It was hanging on by some skin and ligaments.

Glenn: Okay. So, the bone was broken and everything was torn.

Greg: Yes.

Glenn: Okay. And you've lost about 70 percent of your intestines?

Greg: Yeah, more or less.

Glenn: I mean, who's counting? You know, once you get over, you know, 65 percent of your intestines are lost, who counts? All right. So, you had that. When I met you, you told me this story and I didn't realize that your wife, who is here now Hi, Donna, how are you? I didn't realize this was your wife and the reason why I connected that it was your wife was because she was standing behind you as you were standing in a circle of people talking and I was watching her more than I was watching you because she had tears in her eyes and they started to roll down her cheeks and I could see her quiet strength and so we have kind of developed a friendship of sorts, if you will. I don't mean to impose myself on you as your friend, but I have been amazed at the story that you were in the hospital for a year, in and out of how many surgeries?

Greg: 13 or 14.

Glenn: 13. And what really sealed it and the reason why I can't wait, tomorrow on the TV show, these two are going to be joining me for a full hour and we're going to talk about their amazing experience. The thing, the reason why I say two American heroes, not just what Greg did and what Greg is still doing today for our country, but what Donna did, Donna, when she first walked into the room, you got a phone call when he was over in Afghanistan and they said to you

Donna: "Mrs. Stube, your husband has been wounded. We'll call you back in about 30 minutes."

Glenn: And it was two

Donna: Probably about 6, 7 hours later. And I got another phone call.

Glenn: And they said?

Donna: And I asked several questions, wanting to know what was going on, and they still didn't have any more information about it and it was probably about maybe 45 minutes later I got a phone call and

Glenn: Did they know the extent at that time? Did they tell you the extent of what had happened to him?

Donna: The Colonel Ruth, he called and he told me when he did call, he had the right information about what was going on.

Glenn: And they Greg, your comrades in arms, actually took the flag and started to hold the flag. They didn't think you were going to live and they were going to send it to your wife, right?

Greg: That's right. No one thought I would survive and I didn't think I would survive. I was laying there bleeding out in my abdomen and I knew it and I didn't think my prognosis was she good because the aircraft couldn't come in. There was too much hostile fire going on.

Glenn: So you know, he was the medic and so the people that you were training it's a good thing you were aware because you could say did you give them instruction at the time or were they

Greg: Yes. I was trying to help. You know, I wanted to live.

Glenn: And so what is so amazing to me and this is why I want you to watch tomorrow. I need you to meet these people is the part of the story that so intrigued me and I saw the pictures are going to be blurred tomorrow, but I saw the pictures of what condition you were in. The surgeons could actually and the nurses could actually reach in from behind you, through the gaping wounds in your legs, all of the way up into your abdomen.

Greg: Yes.

Glenn: And they had to do that to pack you full of, what, gauze or

Greg: Gauze and to reach in to make repairs.

Glenn: So the first time, Donna, you saw him, you saw him in San Antonio and Greg you had no power to stop it and you saw it coming and what happened?

Donna: I just I passed out.

Glenn: She passed out. Here's the best part: Two days later or three days later?

Donna: It was about three days later.

Glenn: Three days later she was pushing the nurses out of the way and saying, this is my husband. I'll do it. And she was packing Greg. This story is incredible. It is a story it is an incredible story of battle. It is an incredible story of a woman doing what she has to do, what she never thought she could do, and a story of, my gosh, love like you wouldn't believe, a marriage the way it's not to say that you guys don't have your problems, but marriage the way it's supposed to be, that you know you can conquer anything together.


So, thank you guys for coming to New York.

Donna: Thank you.

Greg: Thanks for telling the good side of the story because this is happening to loot of people and the real strength of America shows up during adversity. I've seen that in my own life.

Glenn: What are you doing now, because you're traveling around?

Greg: Right. I've been doing a little bit of representation for wounded warriors and I'm trying to promote the reintegration of soldiers into society after they've been wounded. Sometimes it's a difficult transition. We know how to turn the switch on for combat but when you come home and everything stops and it's peaceful, we're not sure how to turn it off sometimes and the changes the stressful events bring on, sometimes it's hard to get your life back in order.

Glenn: You know, when I first saw you, you were still kind of plug and play. You had a lot of things that they would plug into you and take care of you and are you fully unplugged now?

Greg: I am unplugged.

Glenn: And you also have hearing aids because of the explosion?

Greg: Yes.

Glenn: And you can hear, it's just hard to hear without them? You haven't totally lost your hearing?

Greg: No, I haven't completely lost my hearing, but I do require hearing aids for decent hearing now.

Glenn: An amazing story. You guys are the best. Go out and enjoy New York today and we will talk to you on the air tomorrow night, 7:00. Please don't miss it. The story of not one but two American heroes that I can't wait to introduce them and can't wait for you to see them eye to eye, tomorrow night, 7:00, Headline Prime.

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.
