Glenn Beck: Obama's Speech

GLENN: Let's go ahead and, shall we play Cut 1 and just roll through it? Cut 1.

OBAMA: Let me spell out exactly what that change would mean if I'm President.

GLENN: There you go. Now see, listen to the crowd.

OBAMA: Means a tax code that doesn't reward the lobbyists who wrote it but the American workers and small businesses who deserve it.

[ Cheers and Applause ]

GLENN: Okay, stop for a second. I want you to know the man is for cap and trade. So is John McCain, for cap and trade. Are you for cap and trade? It is the largest tax scam on the planet. I want you to know who the leaders of cap and trade were. Who were the what, what group wanted cap and trade, what group did more to pressure congress to move into cap and trade than anybody else? It was Enron. Enron. Cap and trade is a giant scam the likes of Enron. They want cap and trade because they know the big companies will profit on it. The little companies, the common person, the person that is trying just to start their own business, you will be crushed by cap and trade. And both John McCain and Barack Obama are for it and it is the biggest special interest scam on the planet. So don't talk to me about special interests, how you're going to chase them out of Washington, and it's not going to be written for them. It's going to be written for the little guy. Cap and trade will crush the little guy. Go ahead.

OBAMA: Unlike John McCain, I will stop giving tax breaks to companies that ship jobs overseas and I will start giving them to companies that create good jobs right here in America.

GLENN: Okay, stop just a second. What he's talking about, and this should run a chill down your spine, especially if you've read anything on the books that I've been telling you about on Woodrow Wilson. When he talks about these, when he says I'm going to stop giving tax breaks to companies that ship jobs overseas, John McCain is not suggesting that we give tax breaks to companies that ship jobs overseas. He's saying, I'm going to give tax breaks to all companies. Why? Please think through this logically with me for a second. Why would you want to give a corporation tax breaks? Because we have the highest corporate tax rate in the world. I have said this if I've said it once, I've said it in a million times. I'm tired of companies that look at this country as a market. We're not a market. Do you know why these television stations don't wear a flag lapel pin, why these TV networks don't do it? Because they're global networks. America is a market. Why doesn't CNN refer to us and them? Instead it's the United States. Because we're a market. They have a global reach.

Now, if you keep jacking up the cost to do business and you look, and your company is a global company and you just can't root your company here. You can put it in Jakarta, you can put it in England, you can put it some place elsewhere you're not getting raped by the government. You're going to because you have a responsibility to the shareholders, who also only care about money. And remember, before you throw the shareholders down the stairs, Barack Obama, I'm guessing you're a shareholder. I'm guessing your grandmother is a shareholder. Because if she has a 401(k), if she has a retirement account, it is invested in these companies. Most of them, the big ones, are global in nature. So when you give a tax cut to companies, you are giving them the incentive to stay in America and not go away.

By the way, again if you've read any of the books that I've been telling you about on Woodrow Wilson, the scariest thing about Barack Obama that he didn't say last night on this subject, I'm going to can you play back what he said? He said, "I am going to do." "I'm not going to give the tax breaks to the companies that ship jobs overseas." What I am going to do is what?

OBAMA: Start giving that to companies that create good jobs right here in America.

GLENN: Okay, stop. These are patriotic companies this is, I believe the actual official term that he labels them is patriot tax breaks, patriot companies. Really? Can you imagine if I would say that Boeing was a patriot company? McDonnell Douglas was a patriot company because they were making missile defense systems, because they were helping us build planes that were flying over Afghanistan, that's a patriot company, so I'm going to give that patriot company... the left would never accept it. The left says, don't tell me I'm patriotic and the other guy isn't. And we'll get to that at the end of his speech. They say it over and over and over again, "Don't tell me what patriotism is." But Barack Obama is about to relabel the tax code, so you know exactly, through what you are charged, what you are fined and how you can get relief. He's about to tell you exactly how patriotic you are, through the tax code, with an actual label of patriotism.

All right. Roll it.

OBAMA: I'll eliminate capital gains taxes for the small businesses and startups that will create the higher wage, high tech jobs of tomorrow.

GLENN: Okay. He said he's going to eliminate the capital gains tax for small businesses. Is he really now? So in other words, the capital gains tax, if I invest, I can get that. However, he wants to raise the capital gains tax and double the capital gains tax for everybody else. Again, take out the take out the game that he's playing here of, "I want to cut the capital gains tax for the small business." Grandma gets a capital gains tax if she has a 401(k). Grandma gets one. You get one. If you have a retirement fund, you will pay a capital gains tax. It is one of the leading, one of the leading incentives on reinvestment is the capital gains tax being low. He wants to jack it up for really anybody I think now except for small businesses. I'd like to know how he defines small businesses. Roll it again.

OBAMA: I will listen now. I will cut taxes, cut taxes for 95% of all working families.

GLENN: Stop. I want to cut taxes for and he says listen now. So he's saying it's important. And boy, is it ever. I will cut taxes for 95% of all working families. Great. Seeing that, 50% of America doesn't pay taxes and 49% of America gets more money back. What he's really saying is I'm going to sock it to the top 5%.

Now remember, he's going to tell you that everybody pays taxes, because I've already heard him say it. When confronted with the bottom 50% of this country, pays no tax, the bottom 50%. So that means the upper 50% pays all of the taxes. Are you telling me just imagine, imagine your workplace and just say that your workplace is all of America. Are you telling me that in this country, your workplace with all the people who work there, that half of the people in your business, in your workplace, half should carry the load for the other half? Are you telling me that half of this country, 1/2 of the United States of America should carry the load for the just think about your day. Think about all the people that you see. Think about all the people that you encounter all day. Think about the people because he'll tell you, you know there are people that are struggling, there are people that are struggling, they are struggling to make ends meet, and that is true. But it is also true that you do pull yourself up by the bootstraps. So he will have you focus on those, you know, that farmworker. "There's that farmworker that I met, Sally Muckenfutch and boy, she... Sally Muckenfutch's husband was run over by a plow and his one Clydesdale that had emphysema." And he will tell you that story.

I want you to reframe this in your own head, please. 50% of America does not pay taxes. Think about that in your everyday life. You think about, you can look at that person who is handing you fast food tonight. On your way home or your way to lunch, you look at that person and you think, they don't pay taxes. You know what, because they're struggling. Do you also follow that up with, "I know why they're struggling." "I said a chocolate shake!" "What? I gave you onion rings." There's a reason some of these people are struggling, because they don't give a flying crap. Why don't they give a flying crap? Because somebody like Obama will run in and save the day for them. You don't have to work. You don't have to do it right. You don't have to struggle. You don't have to get the fries and the onion rings and the milkshake right. And you are going to you are destined to lead that life of misery for the rest of your life because no one has ever said to you you're fired. We expect a higher quality here. You're fired. And when they are fired, they don't care because they'll get it from the government. They will be able to find some victim support group that caused them to have all of these problems so 50% can carry the other 50% on their back. And by the way, the top 1% carries most of the top 50%. The top 5% carries almost all of the top 50%. You want to talk about a country of fairness, that ain't it. You want to talk about a country of hope, that ain't it. You want to talk about a country that used to understand you know what? You know what? We're going to bust our ass, and I'm going to get out of poverty. I'm going to make something of myself. A country that would understand Barack Obama's story in context. Look at this man. He came from nothing. He went to Harvard. His wife went to Princeton. God bless America they could do it and he would stand on the stage and say I could do it and you could do it, too, and you could do it without anybody's help. That's America.

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.
