GLENN: Yes. So tomorrow's the big day. We have the coronation -- the election -- tomorrow where, you know, it's a formality, make it official: Hey, look who's God. And I just thought, you know, I want to put -- I just want to -- maybe it's just me, and you can comment on any of this. You know, anybody who wants to call in and be heard on these things, you go ahead and we'll write it down.

Stu and Dan, chime in on these things. I'd like to know the odds of a riot tomorrow. I think the odds of a riot tomorrow if Obama does not win 100%. Yea or nay?

STU: It's not a very good Vegas odd line there because I don't think there's the other side of that. But yeah.

GLENN: No one's going to take that bet. Of course it's 100%. And if it breaks out in Detroit, they will do hundreds of dollars worth of damage.

STU: Yeah, but you have to ask the people --

DAN: You have to ask the people of Detroit to clear up the answer on the bet. What are they rioting for? There's several reasons to riot in the streets.

STU: Could be a normal Wednesday riot.

GLENN: Hang on a second. First of all, in Detroit they may actually do -- it's like a public service. This might be part of the green corps: Hey, burn down that entire neighborhood, will ya? I mean, and again they would do like, I'm guessing but I mean, the insurance companies would be on the hook for, like, 50, 60 bucks. So you've got that going for you.

Now, odds that there's a riot because he wins.

STU: You mean like we won the championship, now a riot?

GLENN: Yes. Not like Wyoming, you know, is all of a sudden, "What!" I mean, yoo! I mean, all of a sudden they burn Detroit down because he's won.

DAN: There's going to be at least be cars rolled over. I would at least say that.

STU: It has to be, right? I mean, that's --

GLENN: It doesn't have to be. In the world that we're now living in, yes, I suppose the odds are in its favor, but it doesn't have to be. I don't think we've ever had -- has anybody ever rolled a car when the President has ever won before?

STU: I don't know. That's a good question.

GLENN: Could you look that up for me at some point today? I'd like to know.

STU: Definitely, I'll check that out, Glenn.

GLENN: All right. Check back especially, especially in that Hoover administration thing. That was a big one.

DAN: They were pushing cars in the Jimmy Carter one just to get them to the gas stations.

STU: Yeah, and that might start again.

GLENN: Okay, so come on, really. Odds, if he wins, a celebratory riot.

STU: I'm going to say -- I'll go no. I'll say no.

DAN: I'm going to say, yeah, I think so.

GLENN: Do you guys know how to play the odds? Yes and no, that doesn't work. You give me a percentage.

STU: What's supposed to work is that you are supposed to give us odds and then you take it or not take it, Mr. "I've never -- I've gambled one time and I've told a story about it 500 times." I mean, the way you are supposed to say it is --

GLENN: Dan, Dan, do me a favor.

DAN: Yes.

STU: Would you bring a box in for Stu Friday? He is going to need it.

DAN: Sure.

GLENN: You know what, Stu, I just want to help make sure that you get part of that bailout package.

STU: Thank you. I appreciate that.

GLENN: You're welcome. One way or another, I'm going to be paying for it. So --

STU: I'll say 35% chance of riot if Obama wins. I'd say 85% if he loses.

GLENN: If he loses, 100%. 100%.

STU: I thought the game was I was supposed to say a percentage.

GLENN: Is anybody writing this down? I guess I should have said that at the outset. Somebody should write this down. I say 100% of you loses. I agree with you. I'll take a little -- I'll be a little riskier. 40% if he wins. I think you are probably accurate, 25, 30%. But I'll go, oh, what the hell.

STU: So you are saying --

GLENN: What we need is a good riot!

STU: All right. So 100% if he were to lose.

GLENN: If he loses? Do you think, anybody disagree with me?

STU: I said 85%. Do you listen to this show?

GLENN: No, I don't listen to you. I listen to this show. It's fantastic.

STU: You just hear silence when I'm talking? Doesn't seem like --

GLENN: Hello, are we still on the air?

Okay, let's go to the stock market. On Wednesday has everybody cashed out at this point? Is everybody who said, "Holy cow, socialism is right around the corner," have they cashed out. What is -- can you look at a chart of ExxonMobil? Because if ExxonMobil hasn't lost half of its value, oh, it will.

STU: I know it's down quite a bit actually. Let's see if I can get a stock quote here.

GLENN: Look that -- who's the biggest coal producer in the country? That's got to be -- I mean, coal's going to just take a -- if you are an energy company, bye-bye. So stock market, down -- is it going to be up or down? And is it going to be big in either direction? I'm torn on this one because if you didn't get your money out yet, you're just so stupid that you -- I mean, you know, if you are still, "Well, I don't know, I think Obama, he may not be so bad." I mean, who's running for the exits after he wins?

STU: I think an Obama win has been priced into the stock market already.

GLENN: I think so, too. I think so, too.

STU: I think that's what everyone's expecting at this point.

GLENN: I think it's going to be down but I don't know if it will be big.

STU: On Wednesday? All right. You are going to say down by how much? Just give me a number.

GLENN: I don't even know what big is anymore. I say a couple of hundred points.

STU: 200 points? I'll say up 75 points. And then because that's the whole thing of you sell the news -- what is it? You sell the rumor and buy the news or the reverse, however that works. As you can see, I'm a financial genius. But I think that everyone's already priced that into the market than when he actually gets elected, it will bounce a little bit.

GLENN: Here we go, next one. The year the Democrats actually stop running against George Bush.

STU: Oh, God.

GLENN: I think 20 -- I don't know, you know, 2030. What do you think?

STU: 2030? Yeah, see, I don't think so. I think it's going to have to be -- you've got to figure -- I'm going to say 2204 because in 2204 there's going to be a lot of new issues on the table and I don't know that they are going to be able to quote George Bush.

GLENN: They will still -- you know this economy -- well, let me go back a step. How about the economy? Does the economy magically look better now that Obama is in, according to the media? Are they deemphasizing it or do they just continue to tell the news but now really emphasize how bad George W. Bush was and how this economy is called?

STU: Well, clearly the economy here is going to all of a sudden be magically helped just like it was -- remember in 2004 they ran their whole campaign on George Bush was worse than Herbert Hoover and then we went on to have like three, you know, very good years in the economy. So I think that they will probably start doing that immediately but I just wonder, what is the statute of limitations on George Bush's economic policies? Are they going to be able to -- in 2012, you know, will they still be able to say, look, we just haven't been able to recover from all that evil George Bush stuff?

GLENN: They will. They will continue to run on -- they will run against George W. Bush until the end of the Constitution. So that could be three weeks from now. We're not sure but until this country is over, they will run against George W. Bush.

I don't think the media is going to -- the economy is going to look good. I think all they are going to do is dogpile onto George W. Bush the evil capitalists, the evil Wall Street, the evil bankers, the evil CEOs. That's all they are going to do. And they will continue to say how awful this economy is, where normally it turns around. But this economy's not going to turn around. And when they realize it's not going to turn around -- I mean not going to turn around at least, you know, quickly, when they realize that, they are just going to dogpile on which will make Obama's job seemingly more easy.

Now, next question. Percent of purchase price that is the new sales tax for a firearm.

STU: By when? When is this -- whenever he UPS it?

GLENN: Twelve months. Within 12 months.

STU: What is it now? Do you have any idea?

GLENN: No idea. Joe, can you check that out for me? What is the current sales tax -- federal tax, not sales tax but federal tax on firearms?

STU: I'll go with a full double of it, whatever it is.

GLENN: I'm going to go for three times. If guns are still available.

STU: Right, yeah, that's always the --

GLENN: Number of prisoners in Gitmo released.

STU: 100%. You mean released or just out of Gitmo. Because he's always talking about closing that thing down.

GLENN: Well, released to --

STU: Released to freedom or released to, you know, they go to trial in America and they go through, you know, another -- a different prison, different circumstance?

GLENN: Can you imagine if we're trying, if we try terrorists in our own courtroom?

STU: Yes, I can definitely imagine it. It seems to be our goal.

DAN: They are going to get therapy. The sentence.

STU: Seems the only thing we care more about than main street is the terrorists' feelings of late.

DAN: They had troubled childhoods, you know.

GLENN: The date Obama hits a 30% approval rating.

STU: See, how do you get to a 30% approval rating when you are a Democrat? Is that possible?

GLENN: Oh, it's going to be.

STU: George Bush is between 25 and 35 right now. Now, he has been absolutely viciously attacked for eight years, some of it legitimately for many commentators but some of it completely unfair, that much of it completely unfair. If you are Barack Obama, you are going to get the full-fledged support like a "Pledge of Allegiance" from 90% of the media. How do you ever get that low?

DAN: Even if it did, they are not going to report it. I mean, look at congress now. Democrat-controlled congress is even lower than Bush by far.

GLENN: Here's what I think's going to happen. I think that in -- ten years ago he would hit an all-time low. I mean, congress, the approval rating of congress is at 9%? I bet you it gets down to 6. You have a -- in the old days 100 -- I mean, 10 years ago -- in the old days -- I would have said that he could hit an approval rating of 30, but I don't think that he will. I think Joe Biden is right. I think there is going to be an event and the pendulum is going to stop swinging. I really think these guys will grab the pendulum and making sure it never swings again. It never goes away. You know, I have talked to so many regular people, so many regular people that I swore, if you would have given me and said, you know, Glenn, bet your house on whether that person agrees with some of the stuff that you said, I would have bet my house, no possible way, no way that person agrees with me. I have met so many people just this last weekend that said, "Glenn, I mean, I think we're headed for a Civil War. I just, there's -- I think there's a possibility this guy turns out to be a fascist." And I've talked to Republicans, I've talked to independents, I've talked to Democrats that have said this guy really spooks me. And with the combination of congress, I think they could stop the pendulum. I think that there is a lot of people in this society that their gut says real trouble on the horizon but they think they're alone, and they're not. I just think this warning bell is going off like crazy and, you know, get all spooky, freaky religious with you, I really think that God is awakening his people and I think the opposition force is just as strong. I really do. I think the opposition is just working their own kind of miracles right now and I just think that those people -- you know, I was talking to a family member of mine and I rarely talk to her. I just happened to talk to her this week even. Rarely talk to her and she is one generation removed from the Great Depression. And we were talking about it and she said, "Boy, everything, everything my father, who lived through the Great Depression and was raising kids through the Great Depression, everything my father said to look out for is coming." And she said, "I can't understand your generation." She said, "Your generation, we taught you these things. We passed it on. How is it when these things start to come that you miss it?" I said I don't know, I don't know. She said, "You know, I have found that the people who are spiritually aware right now are the ones most likely to be awake." And I said, I don't know, I've met a lot of people who I think are, you know, real spiritual people, you know, going to church all the time, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, don't get it. They don't see it, they don't get it. And I don't understand how in a country where freedom, freedom and freedom with religion and capitalism, how people aren't saying, "Well, wait a minute, hang on just a second, I don't want a big heavy state telling me exactly what I can and cannot do."

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.
