Glenn's debate reaction

GLENN: I kept going back. I couldn't do it. I couldn't do it.

So where do you want to start?

STU: Honestly I'd like to start with what movies are coming out. That's what I want to start with. But I guess we can start with the debate.

GLENN: You want to start with the debate? Here it is. Let me go to Dan, our in-house Republican. Dan, tell me about how excited you are for the John McCain lever pull that you've got.

DAN: Wasn't our best night last night?

GLENN: Wasn't your best night last night? Was it even a Republican night last night?

DAN: I did not, I did not really notice too much of a conservative out there on the stage at all.

GLENN: I didn't even notice what I would call a Republican.

STU: I was thinking like, imagine if they had a debate. Now, just picture this, okay?

GLENN: Okay.

STU: You have a debate. It's for the presidency of the United States.

GLENN: Got it.

STU: And what you have is you have two candidates.

GLENN: Uh-huh.

STU: One that represents the left side of the argument.

GLENN: Uh-huh.


STU: And the other one would represent the right side of the argument. So you'd have two different opinions.

GLENN: No.

STU: And they would be going back and forth. "I think lower taxes, I think higher taxes." And you could fight about which one, left or right, which way should we go. I mean, it's kind of boring the way they do it now with both on the left.

GLENN: No. Look, we've already said what the destination is. We're going to hell! How big is the hand basket? That's great. "I want a smaller hand basket. I'd like a bigger hand basket." That was fantastic. I don't think I've ever been more proud of our presidential candidates than I was last night, with the way they were going back and forth: "Yeah, well, he did that. No, no, no, he did this. Well, yeah? Well, let me tell you what you did. Oh, yeah? Well, we got cameras in your bedroom." I loved it when John McCain stepped to the mic and he said, "My friends..." and he says "My friends" one more time, my head is going to explode. I'm not your friend, John. "My friends, what I believe we should do, my friends, because I have a plan. I have a plan. I know how to make a plan. I made a plan. I've made plans before. I know how to correct the problem. I know what the problem is, my friends, and I can do it because we're Americans and we're great and we can do it, my friends, because I've done it before. We can do it again, see?" That part was entertaining and not driving me crazy. But really what put me over into the fun zone was, "My friends, I'm calling on nationalizing all of our mortgages, my friends." Nationalizing the mortgages! "But I'm going to cut down on the... did you see the size of that slide projector that Barack Obama wanted?" I'll give you every slide projector on planet Earth! Please don't nationalize the mortgages! "Because we've got to cut back. What we have to do is we have to cut back. That's why I'm going to say no more toothbrushes. Healthcare will no longer include any kind of toothbrush." Toothbrush? "See, Barack Obama, he wants a healthcare system that includes toothbrushes and everything else. You know, get everything for free. And I say, okay, that's good, we'll do everything for free, but I think we should cut back, and we can't spend that much. So we're not going to pay for your toothbrush, my friends, because I know exactly what -- I've made these plans before." Really? Where do you read those plans? "How to destroy the U.S."?

STU: I thought that was a really funny moment. This is the comedy court, wasn't it, now that you mention it. That was hilarious.

GLENN: Actually it was. It was Tom Arnold and Sinbad. You're right. I could have been watching the debate or the comedy club. I don't know.

STU: You don't know which one was which. Because I was watching -- I thought it was the debate but it might have been the comedy because the comedy part of the portion program was when the guy who's supposed to be on the right was talking about nationalizing mortgages and then the guy on the left comes back in a hilarious moment and he says he's proposing a net spending cut. It was hilarious. What a great moment for comedy.

GLENN: You know, America, we're being lied to. We're being lied to. John McCain gave you Sarah Palin. So shut up, conservatives. I gave you Palin; isn't that enough? No, no, it's really not, John. It's not really. I mean, it's good. It gives me hope. It does, it gives me hope that there's somebody out there that gets it, there's somebody out there that -- and we're going to know right where she is: Alaska. So we can tap her in four years. Sarah, I'm begging you please do your work, please use the next four years. Go to -- what school do we send her to? How to -- you know, just study 1980 to 1989 to show how Ronald Reagan helped collapse the Soviet Union because you in Alaska are going to have to figure out how to collapse what will become the new Soviet Union, the United States of America. I'm just sayin'. But the good news is it's going to be very, very weak because there's really not going to be much left, but that's a different story.

It's not enough for Sarah Palin. These guys -- both candidates are lying to us. "My friends, I've got a plan." You don't have a plan, John. Where's your plan? Where's your plan? Your plan includes -- who do you think should be the next secretary of treasury? Let me just say this. I'm a recovering alcoholic, former deejay with no formal education, and the last two weeks I've been thinking, who should the next secretary of treasury be because Paulson's almost out of there. Who should it be. I wonder if we could get Deputy Dawg to be in there. I've been wondering that. "So tell me, Senator McCain, who would you like to have as the next secretary of the treasury?" "My friends, how about the guy who likes that guy?" That's your answer? The guy who likes that guy! Well, everybody knows his name. Well, everybody knows the name of Ray Crock, too. Maybe we can dig him up. You know, he's the guy who did McDonald's. Wouldn't it be great? Maybe I could run around in a clown suit. Maybe we could have Secretary of State Ronald McDonald, we could live in Happyland. How about that? That's your plan? "My friends, I've been to Happyland before, the Hamburglar, I'll make sure he stays behind bars." Oh, my gosh.

STU: Didn't he at one point say -- again we're railing on McCain because we were hoping for something from McCain. Obama was terrible, too. But the bottom line is like at some point didn't he say that the most important qualification --

GLENN: The people know him.

STU: That people know him and can relate to him?

GLENN: No, really --

STU: As I was saying first of all, we relate to a lot of people. A lot of them aren't qualified. But I don't think I should ever even hear from the treasury secretary. Like, I have no reason in my life to have to listen and relate to the treasury secretary. Honestly in all seriousness, we should never know who the guy is. The guy's supposed to do his gig and take care of things. He shouldn't be relating to us. He shouldn't be justifying things to us. He should just be doing his job. That's not an elected position. You've got to follow these guys and you've got to make sure that they -- but this is not a guy that I want to hear from every day.

GLENN: Can I ask what the deal is with eBay? What is the deal with John McCain and eBay? "You know she sold her plane on eBay." Did you hear how he said, what's her name, Meg somebody?

STU: Meg Whitman.

GLENN: Meg Whitman? You know she did something that -- it was like Paul Harvey all of a sudden. "I've got -- let me tell you about Meg Whitman, Meg Whitman, somebody I'm thinking about as the secretary of treasury. She just created something that maybe many of you might have used before, a little something called... eBay." I mean, that's what it was!

STU: And now you know the rest of the --

GLENN: I mean, did you hear how he even told the story? "You know, you might have heard a little company that she ran, eBay." You're like, the eBay person! Whoa, now I feel good! At least we know how we're going to sell all the mortgages that we just bought!

STU: I mean, Meg Whitman's great, don't get me wrong. I think she's fantastic but it's like, I don't know, is she the -- I have no idea if she's qualified to be treasury secretary. She's a great businesswoman. How do you not know what the exact answer is? Hasn't he been asked this before?

GLENN: I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. So look, look. Here's where this program is going. Do we need a bigger hand basket or a smaller hand basket? Here's where this program is going to go for the next few weeks. I can't -- I mean, I just can't do the John McCain thing. I can't do it. I know I keep going back and forth and back and forth and I bet I'm a lot like you.

Look, Barack Obama, Barack Obama -- I said this morning, Stu said -- because we were on computer back and forth the whole time. We were chatting back and forth, "My friends."

STU: I just had to copy and paste, just kept pasting my friends every third word.

GLENN: So Stu came in and said, how about that debate. And I said, Stu, look, last night I saw the guy that is going to be responsible for the destruction of America as we know it. I just wasn't sure because there were times I thought he was black and other times I thought he was white. I don't know which one it was! Barack Obama is a Marxist. Barack Obama is as dirty as you possibly can get. He's from Chicago politics. This guy, he's in bed with ACORN, they're like quote/unquote family, the Jeremiah Wright thing. Make no mistake about it, make no mistake about it. America, we have been warned over and over and over again. This guy is going to take us to places we've never, ever been before. Bad, bad things coming our way.

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, including fentanyl, but 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,'" she said.

"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."
