Glenn Beck: Bretton Woods 3


Historical sign for the first Bretton Woods Monetary Conference

Glenn: I wanted to get some sense, does anybody really have an idea of how deep and how this is just destroying the Constitution and nobody did. Bretton Woods 1 and, believe me, this is one of the reasons why I was sleeping two hours a night over the last couple of years, for some reason -- I don't remember what it was, but something came up in a story and I would leave no stone unturned about two years ago as I started to -- I knew nothing about the economy. I couldn't tell you even how the Fed worked. Discount -- I had no idea what any of this stuff meant. I just knew there was trouble and so educate yourself, Glenn. And so I did and I worked with my researchers and we researched everything and every story that would come up, if it had one thing in it that I didn't know what it was, let's look into that. One of the stories about a year and a half ago or two years ago mentioned something called Bretton Woods 1. I didn't know what it meant. I'm like, geez, please just be like a farm where they all had pancakes there or whatever. That was actually where the world got together after World War II and the United States said, Do you know what guys? This is going to be a hassle. Do you know what it's like to carry gold bars? It's going to get heavy and then you have to go to the bank and make it into coins. Why don't we just keep all the gold and then you guys just keep our dollar? It was the exchange currency. It was the -- it was the -- it's the global currency and we promised them at Bretton Woods 1 that we would hold the gold and we would never go off the gold standard.

So, if you held a dollar, it would mean a dollar's worth of gold and you didn't have to have all that heavy gold because out, out, my back hurts. It worked to our advantage because everybody had to use our dollar. Then we started the great society and we were first told debt doesn't matter. This is when this started. Debt doesn't matter. We'll build all these housing projects and give away you will kinds of free stuff. Debt? What debt? Oh. We're and doing that war thing. Don't worry about it. We have plenty of money. We didn't have enough gold. Out. My back is hurting. I don't think we can get more gold. So, what we decided to do was go off of the gold standard and onto the debt standard. This is sounding like it's going to work out well! Well, that's what the rest of the world thought. So, they called Bretton Woods 2, another summit where the world got together and said, Hey, remember when you guys said you would never go off of gold and we bought all of your dollars and so now we have them sitting in your bank? You guys are devaluing that and so it hurts us? And we went, no, no, no, no, no. First of all, we'll never be irresponsible with our debt. (Laugher.) We're Americans. And, you know what? It's only going to help you because we're going to change gears and become a consumer society. Sure, we used to make washers and dryers and everything like that, but now we're so rich, we're going to start consuming. So, Japan, it will be good for you because we'll start buying your crazy televisions. Hey, China, we'll buy more than bamboo umbrellas for your drinks from you guys. And so the rest of the world went, Okay. So, we'll still hold on to your currency and you're going to buy our crap? Yeah. And you'll never devalue your dollar? You'll never go crazy on debt? Of course not. What do you guys think? You crazy cats. Get out of here. We're Americans.


Well, now we're at the top of our debt limit and it's not a self-imposed limit. It is a limit -- you know it. You've got one. You know you can carry debt, but then there's a point like, Oh, boy, we're never got to get out of this debt. It's like a flying piano coming out of the sky at us. It should hit us in about 10 minutes. You know when that debt is going to crush you. You can carry debt, but not an irresponsible debt because in the end it all comes raining down like giant Steinways. Right? Well, that's where we are now. Isn't this crazy? And so the world call together another summit, only in a couple of news stories have I heard it called what it really was and, that is, Bretton Woods 3. So, this is, okay, fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice. This is the world getting together. That's why we serve them $500 bottles of wine this weekend. We're like, you guys are great. Here. Drink a lot. The rest of the world, Japan -- I'm sorry, not Japan. China, Germany, France, they're all saying now that they want a -- they want -- do you know what they would like is they would like a global reserve currency and I thought, hum. Bretton Woods 3. And they want a global reserve currency. Wait a minute. Where have I heard that one before? Oh, I remember. The global reserve currency that used to be called the -- the dollar! They're looking for a global reserve currency. They were talking about there is no franc, there is no mark, there is no yen, there is no dollar. We just need a global reserve currency. That's what happened this weekend. Was anybody giving you that story on television or radio? Anybody? You know, I turn it on, Hey, we've got some boring stuff to talk about. Here's some boring economist guys talking about some boring stats and stuff and, you know what? Just go back watching football or something because I'm paid to do this job and I can't even pay attention to it. My gosh, is this boring stuff! That's what was happening this weekend, not the boring stuff that they all reported on, the context, the meaning of it, but you only know that if you know history. You only know that if you have a sense of what is coming and I have that sense and I think you have that sense, but you don't have anybody giving you context on it. This is why I say you've got to do your homework. You've got to seek those things out, but you also have to be very, very careful not to go to extreme websites, not to go -- you've got to be careful. You have to second source everything. With everything that is going on in the world today, all of these rumors, all of these things, the truth is bad enough, gang. The truth is bad enough. You don't need to go to some, you know, i'minmybasement.org. You don't need to do that. The truth is scary enough and you don't -- what we cannot afford is more half truths, more lies. We're not -- we don't have a dollar shortage. We have a trust shortage. And so be that person that people can trust.

You know, when I was asked to leave the building at CNN because we had signed the new deal with FOX and they said, do you know, Glenn? We're just going to pay out your contract and this is totally traditional in radio and television. This is what you do. When you go to a competitor, they don't have you finish out your contract. They just pay it out. And so it's totally fine. And when I was leaving, I left -- I couldn't evening say good-bye to my staff and so my staff, they didn't know what was going on and there were all kinds of half truths and untruths that were floating around and everything else and I thought to myself for two weeks I couldn't speak for them and for two weeks I thought, my gosh, they must think I was lying to them and I just wanted a chance to explain. When we finally got back together about a week ago, I went to each of them and they were, like, Glenn, we worked with you, we knew. We knew. At first we looked at each other and went, wait a minute. This doesn't match and then we all started talking about it and said, it doesn't match and we have two years of experience with him telling us the truth. That's why it's so critical, so critical that you live your life the way you want to live it, the way you're meant to live with it. Live it in truth because when it comes -- push comes to shove, when it comes to a critical time, it may not matter today, but when it's a critical time in your life or our country's life or your family's life, they've got to know, they've got to know, and that's why I say please don't send these crazy e-mails around. Don't do it. Unless you know it to be true, don't do it. Just tell the truth and make sure they're from good sources because when push comes to shove. People are going to need to know that they can trust the information that they have from you. I am doing my best to live my life this way so you can trust the information that's coming from me and if I get it wrong, I will correct it and I won't bury it. I will lead an hour with it. If I get it wrong, I will tell you that I have it wrong, not because I'm, look at me, how wrong I am, but because we need to trust each other and if we all adopt that, if we all do those things, we are going to be fine and we'll make it.

Glenn: What is -- out of the seven deadly sins, what's the biggest sin? I'm going to tie this in and tell what I think the biggest sin is, coming up in just a second. We'll see if you agree. We have Garrett on the phone, however. Hello, Garrett.

Caller: Hi. I'm very upset at the slander that you presented at my show about the website. i'minmybasement.com. I worked very hard on this website. Here you are trying to talk about Bretton Woods 3. We're already on to Bretton Woods 9. Where are you on interpret Bretton Woods 4 through 8? You have no position on it and you've been silent this entire time. I want to tell you something. I'm in my basement right now and I have the entire wall sealed with packing tape and "Star Wars" throw blankets and if there's an attack from Bretton Woods 7 or Bretton Woods 4 like I predicted, I will be safe and I will be the one laughing! (Laugher.) 

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.
