Glenn Beck: Reid - 'Oil makes us sick'


Sen. 'Harry' Reid

GLENN: Here's the latest from San Francisco. They are using taxpayer money to fund a shuttle service from San Francisco to Mexico City, Guatemala. If you're an illegal alien and the Feds come down on you, they use taxpayer money to put you on a plane to send you back home until the cops forget about you and then they send you back. Secede, San Francisco. I'm done.

Here's a city that is so wildly in debt, so wildly in debt and they're doing this? I have no -- I'm not going to help you. I don't want to help them. San Francisco and California, you're making your own bed. New Jersey, you're making your own bed. New York, all of these liberal states. Look at the states that aren't having problems. Texas, not having problems. Why is that, do you suppose? Utah, I was talking to the head of the Senate in Utah over the weekend. He said we've got a surplus. He said, in fact, we've got a surplus, and they are doing something else just in case next year is worse than this year. We're kind of planning on it being a worse year next year and we don't want to get behind. You've got to be kidding me. Like, wait a minute, you're talking -- you're in the Senate? What? States should -- they've got to rely on themselves. No. No, people need to rely on themselves. And that's the problem. Here's the choice that we're going to be faced this November. We're going to be faced with a choice between big government, that can do everything better, or small government that doesn't do anything. No, actually the choice is big government or massive government. But maybe, maybe we can in the local elections effect it. Maybe you can find the congressmen and you are not just dumb enough to say, well, I'm going to vote that person out, if the other person is for bigger government. Find the person that is for the smallest government possible. Free us from these shackles. It's crazy. Here's Harry Reid yesterday. You want to know why congress -- this is what congress has done. You know that mysterious energy plan that the Democrats had? They're going to lower gas prices. And we've been saying, it's almost like they don't want to lower gas prices, isn't it? It's almost suspiciously like, lower gas prices? That's a bad idea.

Now, Nancy Pelosi said if you -- do we have that audio? If you elect a Democrat, we have a plan to lower gas prices. That's what she said. Since she got into office, since the Democrats took over control of congress, gas has gone through the roof. Well, where is this mysterious plan? The answer we now get from Harry Reid. It's been enacted. What is their mysterious energy plan to lower gas prices? Listen to Harry Reid.

REID: We talk about cost competitiveness but the one thing we've failed to talk about is those costs that you don't see on the bottom line. That is coal makes us sick. Air makes us sick. This global warming, it's ruining our country. It's ruining our world. We've got to stop using fossil fuel. We have, for generations, taken it out of the Earth, carbon out of the Earth and put it into the atmosphere. It's making us all sick.

GLENN: Stop. You know, just real simple. Let me ask you then, why is it that the life expectancy has gone up by 15 years? Has it not? It's making us sick. Really? "Yeah. Well, healthcare, healthcare." Yeah, yeah. Energy, we need energy. They have no -- they have absolutely no intention of using coal. They have absolutely no intention of using oil. Guys, guys, I have done my homework. I have looked. Those answers are out there, but they are on the horizon. They are anywhere from five to 20 years out. And when I say five, here's one. Ray Kurzweil said to pee -- now, Ray Kurzweil is the guy who Bill Gates says is the best futurist out there. This is the guy who said the Internet will be in every home. He's the guy who said, before the Internet was around, he said you will eventually, your phone will be a computer, it will be a television screen, you'll be able to have music on it, it will be everything you could possibly imagine all in your phone and it will fit in your pocket. This is in the 1980s, early 1980s. Now he says solar panels are going to be, within five years we're going to be able to gather all of the energy we need from solar panels within five years.

Stu, give me the solar panel update that you gave me this morning when I came in.

STU: Yes, the Bureau of Land Management quietly decided in May that development of solar plants in 119 million sun-soaked federally owned acres in the Western states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah would have to wait at least two years while bureaucrats sorted out their environmental impact.

GLENN: These people will not allow us to have anything. I told you the cleanest energy we could have is hydroelectric. You can't build hydroelectric dams anymore. You can't build a dam. The water turns turbines. It makes electricity. You want to talk about clean energy, there it is. The water is turning the turbine. These people, if we had our mills, you know, made with the paddle wheels like you used to have in the 1700s, they would still be protesting those things. Not only do these evil mills cut down trees, but they cut them up like butcher shops! The poor fish. They don't want energy.

Now, for the life of me I don't understand it. There's no compromise on this. These guys, they are not -- I'm willing to compromise. I'm willing to say I don't believe in global warming. I believe in the natural climate of Earth changing, in a much faster fashion than it's changing now. It's done it before. I believe in natural climate change. That makes sense. I'm not willing to spend money through tax dollars to buy carbon credits for countries on the other side of the planet. That's socialism. All under the guise of green. Not willing to do that. No one should be willing to do that. And that is what's coming. It has nothing to do with clean energy. Now you have to ask yourself why is it that they don't want coal. Why is it they don't want oil? Okay, global warming, great. Give me nuclear power. Can't. Bad. Too dangerous. Really? France has nuclear power. 80% of their power comes from nuclear power. There hasn't been an accident in France. The only accident in America was Three Mile Island and nobody died from it! The system worked! Can't do it. Can't build a hydroelectric plant. Solar, solar we could get 100%. Solar, why aren't we using solar power? Why aren't we using the sun's rays? We'd like to. Environmentalists now need a study to see the impact of all those solar panels. Wind-power, let's use wind-power. "No, no, you can't use wind-power. That will kill too many birds."

Well, gang, I don't know if you know this, but without power we're living like the pioneers lived, and I personally would not like to crap in the outdoors. I personally like the idea of a supermarket. I like ice. I never thought I'd have to battle for ice. "Oh, the poor polar bear, clinging for his life on ice." That's what they do! They live on the side of the ice, the very edge of the ice so they can eat baby seals. "What?" Just that concept alone should put environmentalists crazy! "The polar bears eat baby seals?" Yes! "The poor little baby seals?" Yes! "Oh, well, I guess I'm okay with that because that's just nature. They're just trying to survive." Well, what about man? Could man eat a baby seal if he was super, super hungry? Could man eat salmon if he was super, super hungry? No, that's not natural. Like we're beings from outer space. Has anybody else noticed that? These environmentalists are like, "Don't leave any fingerprints anywhere." This is our natural habitat as well!

I can't -- I can't take it. I'm a reasonable guy. I will -- where is John McCain? Where is any politician? This is so easy to knock out of the park right now. This is so easy. When you have everybody, when you have the poor and the rich, both saying, "holy cow, gas is how much?" When you have the entire population, there's no politician out there? There's nobody out in the mainstream that can make this point, that can be heard? You've got to be kidding me. Where's John McCain? Mitt Romney, he was the man. He had the plan for energy. I asked for a moon shot -- I got a call. I got a call from a friend who said, have you read Mitt Romney's energy plan? I said, no, you're not going to make me read it, are you? You want to talk about a moon shot, there it was! We have John McCain, a guy who believes in global warming. Doesn't want to drill in ANWR. Why? Why did we buy Alaska? For the beauty that we never see? Is that what it was? Did we spend all that money buying Alaska because back in the 1950s we went, "Oh, let's just, let's just buy that land and preserve it so no one could ever see it or go up there or touch it. We can just make a nice habitat where the polar bears can eat baby seals." Is that what we -- because if that's what they did in the 1950s, they were much more stupid than I thought they were.

Meanwhile the candidates, yesterday Barack Obama was talking about his patriotism. You know how I judge somebody's patriotism? From hereon out I think I judge somebody's patriotism as not being part of the system that is trying to destroy our country. You're working for a future where we have ice cubes! Not working against it. But meanwhile they're just, they're busy talking about patriotism, they're busy talking about vice presidential candidate. I wonder if it could be a woman or an Indian or a minority or someone with a cleft roof of their mouth or a clubfoot. Could we get somebody like that, somebody that can unite behind their disability or their minority status? Because that's really what America wants to talk about. That's really it.

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."
