Glenn holding the Marconi Award for "Syndicated Personality of the Year"--he opened the 'package' around 11:15 am and the Award NEVER left his hands until 8:30 pm

Glenn graciously permitted Stu to hold his cherished Marconi Award and then spent the rest of the day asking Stu how many Marconis Stu had received and wouldn't leave until Stu replied 'none'

Adam and Glenn walking in downtown Manhattan with Glenn carrying his recently earned Marconi Award under his right arm. I've seen Glenn misplace his wallet and eyeglasses but there was no way the Marconi was going missing

Glenn found a nice out-of-the-way place to place his Marconi Award. The Christmas Sweater Tour Manager, Rich Bonn, is literally telling himself, "I can't believe Glenn brought that here??@@?!!"



I hope Glenn remembered to deactivate the airbag!

Behind-the-Scenes - Glenn Receives the Marconi Award

Blogging by Joe Kerry

Glenn said two things to Stu when he arrived at Radio City on Monday morning:  “we are possibly on the brink of a major economic catastrophe” and “did the package arrive”.

Stu was prepared for the ‘economic catastrophe’ remark but neither of us knew how to respond to his ‘package’ question.  We didn’t have to wait long for the answer because the ‘package’ was hand-delivered and Glenn ripped into it like a kid at Christmas tearing into wrapped packages.  Inside was the 2008 National Association of Broadcasters “Syndicated Personality of the Year” Marconi Award (see photo).

The Marconi Award is radio’s equivalent of a television Emmy or Hollywood Oscar.  It’s a big deal.  Such a big deal that I was surprised I never heard Glenn talk about being a nominee or talk about how hard he worked or how much he wanted to receive it.  I didn’t even know Glenn was a nominee.  He never talked or asked about it.  It was only when the ‘package’ arrived that I learned he was chosen to receive radio’s highest honor.

Glenn may not have made a ‘big deal’ about the Award before it arrived but I can tell you how much it meant to him because since its arrival this morning it has not left his hands, except when his television program was filmed.

After the television program, Glenn had to attend  singing auditions for his upcoming tour, A Christmas Sweater.  As he was preparing to walk to the singer auditions, Glenn tucked the Marconi Award under his arm.  Adam asked Glenn if he really wanted to bring the Marconi Award to the auditions.  The conversation went like this:

ADAM:  Glenn, why don’t you leave the award here.  It’s glass and it’ll be safer here.

GLENN:  No, it’s okay, I’ll just take it in the box.  Besides we’re going directly home from the auditions and I want to bring it home.

ADAM:  Actually, we’re coming back to CNN, so why don’t you leave the Marconi and the box in your office.

GLENN:  We’re coming back here?  Oh.  That’s okay, I still want to take it with me.

So, as we walked down the crowded streets of Manhattan on our way to the Christmas Sweater singer auditions, Glenn carried the Marconi tightly packaged in the box it arrived in (see photo).

I thought Glenn’s attention to the Marconi Award would end once we arrived in the room where the auditions would take place—and I was literally a heartbeat away from finally seeing Glenn part with the Award when one of the tour’s producers asked Glenn, “what’s in the box?”  That’s all Glenn needed.  Out came the Marconi Award, where it was immediately placed in an out-of-the-way unobtrusive place where it wouldn’t get in the way (see photo).

As an aside I have to tell you that The Christmas Sweater singing auditions were incredible.  Over 300 singers applied for this particular position and that talent pool was narrowed to six finalists.  Each singer brought such power and emotion.  I don’t know how Glenn is going to make a final decision.

On several occasions I looked over at Glenn during the auditions.  The best way I can describe how he looked is to ask if you have ever been so swept-up in the emotion of a song that you become oblivious to your surroundings.  That’s how he looked, he was in the room but his mind and heart were somewhere else-making a connection to the singer.

As we were packing-up, Glenn gingerly put the Marconi Award back into the box and I started to pack my backpack.  Adam, like usual, was already to go and waiting.  It looked like it would be an early night until one of the shows producers (yes, the same one who asked what was in the box) asked, “Glenn, you seem to know a lot about the stock market, would you invest right now?”

At first I thought it was a trick question.  The type of question that’s asked but really doesn’t have to be answered.  One look at the producer’s face immediately told me that the question was asked in earnestness.

As the question lingered in the air, waiting to be answered, I thought to myself that the poor soul who asked the question really had no idea of what was heading his way.  He had no idea of the torrent of economic data that would soon fill his ears or the virtual economic tsunami of doom and that he would shortly find himself in the midst of--all triggered by his unassuming 15 word question.

This poor man was about to be told that the entire capitalist system he was born into was coming to a possible end and that we would all soon be wearing grapefruit rinds for shoes while making our own soap from Drum fish caught on fishhooks fashioned from our belt buckles.  I don’t know how it happened, but somehow their conversation ended on a positive note.

With that, we headed back to CNN where Glenn created one more opportunity to show the Marconi Award.  When we got to his car he took it out of the box and placed it securely on the front seat (see photos).  The only question I have now is whether or not Glenn took the Marconi Award to bed—but there are some questions that best go unanswered and we’ll put this question into that category.

When Biden was given the keys to the Oval Office in January 2021, gas was $2.50 a gallon and the inflation rate was 1.4%. Today gas is at $3.32 a gallon and the inflation rate is at 7% ... and STILL RISING. These are just 12 months of numbers, but we’re clearly in a worrying decline. While the economy has opened up more post-COVID, it’s not just getting worse — we’re going IN REVERSE.

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard (and the very top of his studio ceiling) to explain what’s happening to inflation and why it’s so hard for your family to afford basic goods and groceries. It’s not “corporate greed,” as Democrats have been telling you. The Biden administration wants to continue to spend trillions of dollars to “reinvent capitalism,” but that’s in addition to the trillions that are being pumped out IN THE SHADOWS.

Glenn exposes what the Fed has been doing behind closed doors and shows us the tidal wave that’s about to hit. He’s looked at the numbers, and they're frightening. Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” gives advice to Americans who want to protect their checking and savings accounts before it’s too late.

The stock markets have taken a nosedive in the biggest downtrend since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. But that's nothing compared to what's coming thanks to our government's embrace of modern monetary theory, warned BlazeTV's Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It really is important that you understand what's happening to us," Glenn stated. "Modern monetary theory is truly the [fuel] ... for the great reset. It is the idea that we can print as much money and spend as much money as we want," he explained.

"Then the next step is to release the Federal Reserve digital currency and make payments by other currencies [including cryptocurrencies] illegal," he continued. "And you're seeing it happen now in real time. Why would they do this? Because you cannot print this kind of money without having absolute control over how it is spent."

Glenn broke down the steps powerful political organizations — like the Federal Reserve — will take to end currency competition and enact a Federal digital dollar, which will allow for the government to have complete control over how we spend our money.

"This is what's coming. This is coming quickly, and events will make it move faster. For instance, why is Joe Biden basically giving Ukraine to Russia? He's giving it to them. He he knows Russia's not afraid of him. Putin knows that [Biden] is not going to do anything ... neither is NATO. They're not going to do anything," Glenn said.

"It's because war resets everything. War is the best great resetter. Changes boundaries. It changes borders. It changes laws. It changes societies. It changes currencies. It changes everything. And in the end you just want the war to stop. And so you you accept whatever it is the terms are that you're going to have to live under now. We're in very, very dangerous times. The only way to survive this is to know why they are dangerous times."

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.
