GLENN: Yesterday I told you that, you know, I have a lot of hope for America. Today I want to bring you that I have a lot of hope in you. But you're being fed a bunch of lies every step of the way. And I think it's all starting to come together for me. Let's talk about healthcare. That's where everybody is -- you know, "We've got to have healthcare, healthcare is unaffordable in America. The Canadians, the Canadian healthcare system, that's fantastic." Really? You know the guy who designed the Canadian healthcare system now admits that it's in a crisis? The guy who designed the Canadian healthcare system says it's in a crisis and he's now advocating private control of much of the system and we're going towards that? What the heck is wrong with us? He said, "We thought we could resolve the system's problems by rationing services or injecting massive amounts of new money into it." This is the guy who created the Canadian healthcare system. "We thought we would solve the problems by rationing services." Oh, that's fantastic. I love rationing healthcare. He now says it means a radical overhaul. "We're proposing to give a greater role to the private sector so people can exercise their freedom of choice."

Meanwhile in the U.K., the U.K. is restricting access to the use of drugs it knows it will work because the U.K. can't pay for them. There is a drug out, Tarceva, I think it is. It's for lung cancer. Listen to this. "Despite numerous studies showing that the drug significantly prolongs the life of cancer patients and the unanimous endorsement of lung cancer specialists throughout the U.K., the government has determined that a drug is too expensive to cover." Oh, well, that's fantastic. How about this. There's an arthritis drug out there. It's the only drug clinically proven to improve severe rheumatoid arthritis. The National Institute of Health and Clinical Effectiveness, or NICE, as that's called in the U.K., decided that it would not be cost-effective to give this drug to patients. How do they come up with these decisions? Comparative effective research is so easily misused because it looks only at the average patient. Not you. Just the average patient. They focus on which drugs on average are the cheapest and most effective. So they don't look at you as an individual anymore. You are literally a number. If you fit into the average, well, you're going to be fine. If you are outside of the average, sucks to be you, huh? They overlook important factors like age, race, gender, lifestyle. So even if your doctor says that this drug for your lung cancer is the right one for you, the government says, not going to pay for it because it's not cost-effective for the average patient. Hopefully, hopefully I have faith in the American people that when the chips are really down -- and almost all of the chips are out on the table now. When the chips are really down, they are going to wake up. I've got to believe that. You have to believe that, that when the chips are down, that's when America gets up. Because if you don't believe that, there ain't nothing. I can't get out of bed in the morning because I've seen what's happening to the country and you see what's happening to the country. So what is happening? Why is it? Why is it that we think to ourselves, oh, my gosh, it's almost like they are intentionally doing this. Well, there is a great story from real politics. Realclearpolitics.com. It's about cap and trade. After I read this article this morning, I thought, oh, my gosh, here is the answer. It was on cap and trade, and the article is that it's not inevitable even with McCain or Obama. Only 48 senators voted to allow the bill to proceed, far short of the 60 needed to overcome a filibuster. Even that number is deceptively high because 10 of the 48 were cast by Democrats who oppose cap and trade. They flipped their votes only after they knew the legislation will not go forward in order to save the Democratic leadership from the embarrassment of having a bill fail 46-38 vote against it.

Now, here's what you have to understand. Here's where it's starting to all make sense to me. The old left and the new left. The Marxist-influenced old left believed in industrial socialism. They believed that the old Soviet Union could make a better car. They believed that Marx was right and you didn't need to have private enterprise. If the government just owned everything and ran everything, it would work. Well, because that hasn't worked, have you noticed, has anybody noticed that -- I know we've said it on this program a million times. Has anybody noticed that that doesn't work? Why are we still going towards socialism? They have noticed, but here's the difference. The old left and the new left. The old left still thinks it works. They are like, oh, yeah, no, it's great. When it became clear to most people that an industrialized state won't work, the new left came in and the new left, the new left has rejected industrial prosperity as a goal. The new left is now looking at it and saying this is the wrong way to live. You will understand everything if you can get your arms around the new left. You've heard them actually say these things. You've heard them say how obscene our lifestyle is. You have heard them say we need to go back to the way we were. They don't want to take the third world and bring it up to our lifestyle. They want to shut our lifestyle down and push it down. We need a more primitive lifestyle. The new left declares that a primitive lifestyle is the ideal, we should try to emulate it here, we should not ever buy anything that's within 40 miles of our house. We should buy everything like we used to buy everything, make everything like we used to make everything, go back to the wagon train days. The new left rejects our lifestyle. The old left wanted to have it as an industrialized state. Now that it has failed, the new left says great, well, it should fail because this is obscene to live this way. So if you have ever felt, my gosh, it's like these people are trying to dismantle us intentionally, they are. They don't see -- you know how everybody says, hey, look, it's always gotten better. Every generation it's gotten better. Well, that's not true. It is true in America, but we haven't had people that have been trying from the inside to take us down. Nobody is going to take us down from the outside. It's from the inside.

If you were designing a plot to take America down, the only way you could do it is from the inside. Plant the virus within. Well, the virus went in and infected the Democrats. The Democratic party has been hijacked. The only hope the Democratic party has is the blue dog Democrat. Those Democrats that stood up against cap and trade, those Democrats who still get it.

See, the Democrats in the giant cities, the Democrats from places like New York, you can't even relate real life to New York. It is a different world in New York. They don't see it. They don't relate to you. They think they are the center of the universe and that really everything happens in New York, the rest of the country should feed New York. "We have problems here the little people can't understand."

They have been plotting, they have been working hard for a very long time and it's come in dribs and drabs. Peter Singer, I've told you about Peter Singer before. Peter Singer is a guy who has apologized. He has the chair of ethics at Princeton University. This guy has apologized for his stance on abortion. He originally came out and said a child can be aborted 30 days after birth. He apologized for that. He said I shouldn't have put a number on it. It's closer to two years. The child doesn't know it has a future until it's about 2 years old, and until it can realize, hey, there's going to be tomorrow, it's not really a person; it can be killed. Well, Peter Singer is responsible for what happened in Spain. If you looked at the Drudge Report last night or this morning and you saw it and you thought to yourself, oh, boy, here we go again, I'm waking up in crazy town, the country of Spain has given apes rights, human rights. It's the Great Ape Project. Well, if you know anything about the Great Ape Project, you know it was started by Peter Singer, a guy who doesn't think humans are human. Hmmm. But apes are human. The right of the great ape. This is what it said. Spain's parliament voiced its support yesterday for the rights of great apes, for life and freedom in what will apparently be the first time any national legislator has called for such rights for nonhumans.

Two reasons for this being the first time any national legislator has passed a certain issue like this and made it into a big deal. The first reason would be because it's something long overdue and it's the right thing to do. The second reason would be because it's the worst idea in history, and I think this one falls in the second category. Their environmental committee over in Spain disagrees. Jeez, their environmental committee. This is going to go down in history as one of the dumbest things humans have ever done. "It is a historic day in the struggle for animal rights in the defense of our evolutionary comrades who will doubtless go down in history of humanity." That's the director of the Great Ape Project. "There are no known instances of great ape abuse or medical experimentation. There's currently no law preventing that from happening, but still there's no case of that happening over in Spain. Some of the historic rights achieved, apes will not now be allowed in circuses, they cannot be on television, they can't be on television commercials and they cannot be filmed," but because Spain is so forward thinking, they are still allowing 315 of the apes to be kept in zoos, which, sure they're going to love their newly found freedom as they sit there in a caged area and fed three square meals a day. They're just like humans. Shouldn't we let them out? This kind of thinking leads us, the evolved thinking, leads us to what happened yesterday in our Supreme Court where you can't execute a pedophile.

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.
