GLENN: We fixed the banking problem.

STU: Friday banking crisis solved, right?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: So California, today California problem. Tomorrow, California bailout.

GLENN: Solved.

STU: Wednesday, California solved. Why don't we just pass bailouts for everything, then everything would be solved.

GLENN: I love this idea. May I tell you, I'm coming up with my own -- now we have the disclaimer? Hang on. The lawyers are making us do this.

VOICE: The financial opinions expressed on this program are solely the opinion of the host, which means you should immediately realize they are invalid. The radio network, this station, the United States of America and quite possibly God himself accept no responsibility for the words or actions of the host and honestly use it as an example of how not to act or think. The thoughts generated by those who follow the hosts advice should be dismissed and ridiculed at every opportunity.

GLENN: I think this is really, I think that's a little extreme. But anyway, so I have an idea for the bailout for California because I don't know if you know this. This is fantastic. California, you are -- well, first of all, the governor just went on a $40 billion spending spree. $145 billion budget was just passed for California just recently, in the last three weeks. It's 40 -- it's up 40% over the last five years. That's fantastic. And here's the best part. In this $145 billion budget that was just signed weeks ago, you know, while the whole financial thing, not a single spending cut, not one. No spending cuts. Just signed in just a couple of weeks ago. By the way, they also have the personal income tax in the state is the highest in the nation. It's at 10.3 now. They should just raise that. People in California, they've got enough money. They're living in the sunshine. What do they need a house for? They should just -- 10.3, why not make it 15.8? Why not make it 20.1?

STU: Those people won't notice the difference.

GLENN: They won't notice.

STU: They have so much money.

GLENN: No. They have one of the 10 highest business rates for income tax at 8.3, one of the highest minimum wage requirements at $7.50, that way you don't have any real jobs for low income workers. But don't worry about it. You just hire an illegal. What's the big deal there? The trial lawyers have implanted a workers' compensation system that adds $4.13 for every $100 of payroll. That's the second highest burden in the nation. According to the Pacific Research Institute's tort liability index, California has the least -- or is the least competitive state in all of the 50s. Oh, and it's not a right-to-work state. So California, you got no problems going on. That's why I would like to enact -- because you've really done your job. You've done everything you can. You just pass that budget. Some would say, hey, have you cut it a little bit? No. You've got oil and everything else? Hey, have you sold any to make some, you know, new revenue? No. I'd like just to come with a bailout. I'm calling this the Glenn Beck Go to Hell, California Act of 2008, and it's really pretty simple. Until you cut your budget, until you, you know, stop making people just have -- this is what they did over the weekend. They made sure that all of the fast food restaurants had the calorie counts up there. You know, no, they're prioritizing. They made sure that that was all done this weekend. So until you stop doing things like that, until you slash your budget, until you stop giving money away to everybody, until you start to say, "Hey, wait a minute, don't we have a gigantic source of revenue just off our shores," until you start doing that, you can go to hell.

Now, some might say, you know, why would I want to go to Massachusetts, and I just want to say that's not -- no, no, no, that's not -- I mean, it may seem like hell but it's not actually hell. Now, people on the other side of the country, they say, have you been to Massachusetts? And I say, yes, I have been. It looks like hell. The people who are running it seem like they're from hell, but they're not -- that's not technically hell. California, until you do those other things, I'd like to send you directly to... hell. Now, some others in California, many in let's say, I don't know, San Diego might say (laughing), can't go there, I'm already living there and I say, no, no, it could get much worse for you. Yes, it could. The people who are running you right now, you might think, they're worse than Satan? Yes, yes, believe it or not, Satan could be worse than the people in Sacramento. I'm just -- now, that's just, this is just, it's only a three-page bill right now. We could add more to it. I don't think we do -- do you have any amendments, Stu, that you'd like to add?

STU: Well, it's kind of -- what you are saying is perplexing because first of all I don't understand. I mean, you should at least have 448 more pages of just pork projects. Like carbon tax, maybe something like you can work in there like some wool research.

GLENN: Hold it just a second. You are not saying that in the bill that just passed just last week, the one that was rushed through congress real quick, you are not saying that now that we've done our research over the weekend that we found that there is the beginnings of a carbon tax.

STU: No. Why would I say something -- are you Ling to me? Why would I say something like that?

GLENN: That's what we found over the weekend, that in that bill that was just passed and signed by the President, there is the foundation of a carbon tax. Because that would be crazy.


STU: It would be crazy.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: No one would say that.

GLENN: Okay, good.

STU: But what I'm saying is you --

GLENN: But wait. You are not not saying that, though, either. Have you noticed that? I think Stu is not saying that but he's not not saying that, either.

STU: Yeah, I have no --

GLENN: It almost makes me say, gee, maybe somebody should look into that bill because there's a hidden carbon tax in it!

STU: Couldn't possibly be true.

GLENN: Couldn't possibly be, no.

STU: But Glenn, you are missing the whole premise of this conversation.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: You are saying that California should go to hell because --

GLENN: No, no, no, I'm not saying that. It would be law.

STU: It's a proposed -- right, it's a proposal.

GLENN: It would be law, they would have to go.

STU: Right. You know, despite the fact there's a lot of people there who think their government is as insane as we do. The point there, though, is --

GLENN: They mainly live in San Diego.

STU: Right, yes, that's -- at least seems to be the pattern.

GLENN: It's the only part of the -- I think they own all of the flags in the State of California, are in San Diego.

STU: Right.

GLENN: You don't see an American flag anywhere except San Diego.

STU: I don't think that's accurate but it's at least --

GLENN: Pretty close.

STU: Here's the thing, Glenn.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Okay. Why would we go, why would we make California go to hell when we can -- if a bailout is going to solve the problem? Remember the premise. You have a problem, you pass a bailout, then the problem's solved.

GLENN: I'm just being a stickler. I'm just being a stickler.

STU: Why, though?

GLENN: I'm just trying to be obstinate. It's what talk radio does. It makes people hate people. When there's a solution out there, I've just got to hate people, whip people up into hatred.

STU: This is an easy solution.

GLENN: I know.

STU: Just give the money away and --

GLENN: I know, but Stu, we're out of business. I've got to whip people up into hate. Even though that solution is so simple because we have fixed the bank -- oh, the Dow is down 208. We fixed the whole economic problem. By the way, by the way, now Massachusetts has come on board. Massachusetts has also said that they are going to need a bailout.

STU: Gee, that's smart because they know bailouts solve problems. Every time --

GLENN: No, Stu, I have a -- may I, I have another bill I'd like to introduce. It's the Glenn Beck Go to Hell Massachusetts Act of 2008. It's a lot like the Glenn Beck Go to Hell California Act of 2008 except instead of oil off the shore, I just remind Massachusetts that they have a lot of wind power off their shore that might -- you know, they could -- I know you don't want to wreck your view, Massachusetts, but -- and people in Massachusetts are like, how are we going to go to hell? What are you talking about? Why would I want to go to New York City? And they say, no, no, no. No, no, people in Massachusetts, you think that New York City is hell. Technically it's not. Hell is much, much worse than -- and I know this is hard to believe. Being a guy who lives here in New York City, I know it's very, very difficult to believe, but hell is technically worse than New York City. Although Bloomberg may be the antichrist. I'm not -- I'm just saying, he may be Satan himself. I'm not sure. We'll have to check into that. But until you cut your budget, you know, because Massachusetts, the great thing about you is you wanted to do healthcare. So you did this whole healthcare thing and then it just spiraled out of control. As many would say, the whole healthcare thing, really not a good idea. You know, the whole spending and taxing, really not a good -- you are driving people out of your state. Kind of like California is. So until you decide, yeah, going to lower my taxes, I'm going to make it more business friendly, I'm going to, you know, just not, you know, just tax people to death and then spend people, you know, so they can't even afford the grave, after they've been taxed to death, they can't even afford the grave, and you wouldn't dig a grave because that will hurt the, you know, beloved environment. You picked that one up from California, by the way. Here's what you do. You can just go to hell. And then I would like to introduce the last act because New York City is now talking about a bailout, too. And that one is the Glenn Beck, Holy Cow, I Think We're Already in Hell Act of 2008. And that one is just, you have nothing, New York. You can't really do anything because what you've done is you hate the rich so much, you've taught everybody to hate the rich and you've built all of your tax base in the entire state around Wall Street, the rich people. And then what's crazy is you have people like Barney Frank coincidentally enough from Massachusetts, and he -- they send him down to monitor the whole, you know, banking thing along with Chris Dodd who is weird, this is a guy who represents a lot of the people who live in Greenwich and places like that, you know, the big bankers and stuff. And you just hate those rich and so what you've done is you've created a system where the rich can't function anymore. So now the rich are gone. They are beating it. And there's no money being made on, buy all these rich people down on Wall Street. So now there are no more rich people here. So you don't have the money for the -- maybe you should tax those people who make under $250,000 -- no, that won't cover it. Hmmm. Maybe we shouldn't have put all of our eggs into one rich basket. Maybe we should have created a system where we spread the burden across the entire spectrum so if one goes down, we don't lose the whole ship. No, that would be crazy. What we should do is eat the rich, which by the way I believe if there is a total meltdown, people in New York will be eating not only the rich but their neighbors within 10 days. Oh, they will be feasting on the old lady who lives in 19-B within 10 days of a meltdown because the people in this city are completely unprepared. Of course, they will go after the old lady's probably cat within four days because they won't have any -- and they won't be able to get down the 70 flights of stairs. And so the old lady will be, "Where's Fluffy? Has anybody seen Fluffy?" And the people will be munching on Fluffy right there in 18-D. And as the old lady comes out, "Where's Fluffy," somebody will say in 18-C, "I knew we could lure her out just by making cat noises in the hallway," and they'll eat her in New York City because, yes, New York City is hell.

So Californians, if you would like to live in New York City, just keep doing what you're doing because it's working out well here.

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.
