GLENN: We talked yesterday a little bit about his fiscal stimulus package and some of the things that were in it like water slides and fixing up zoos, et cetera, et cetera, but here's one of my favorite. This comes from Alabama, it's a little town called Edwardville. They want $375 million of the stimulus package, $375 million. By the way, Edwardsville, Alabama has a population of 194 people. It is located near the Georgia border, 26 miles from the nearest big city of Anniston, population 24,000 people, and they have 33 proposals. They want $375 million. That's about $2 million per resident in Edwardsville.

Now, Edwardsville is kind of a hard -- it's hard to live there. I mean, there's 194 people that live there and they have the poverty rate of Nepal. The poverty level is at 28.7%. So there's not a lot of rich people that live there, but there are 194 people. So what are they going to do with the $375 million? Well, I mean, you could just give it to each resident and they would all be millionaires and then let them decide how to spend the money. I'm just sayin'. If I had $2 million, if the government was going to give me $2 million and there were only 194 of us, we could all figure out how to fix our town, couldn't we? Or you could let the government do it. And here's what they've decided to do. They are going to replace the street lights in Edwardsville and they are going to replace them with solar powered lights. So that way once they replace the street lights, you don't have to worry about spending the money. I mean, they got a poverty rate. You don't want to have to worry about spending the money to turn on the street lights. These will be solar powered street lights. They are also going to install solar panels on the town hall at $77,000. They are also going to build solar power recharging stations.

Now, Stu, let me ask you this: When you've got a -- when you have a town that has the poverty rate of Nepal, does this sound like an unbelievably fantastic idea or one of those, "Oh, my gosh, that's such a good idea; why didn't I think of it"?

STU: Well, Glenn, you can make fun of it all you want, but the truth is if you don't have solar powered street lights, then you're going to cause a massive global warming crisis.

GLENN: I understand that. I understand that. Listen.

STU: And then icebergs --

GLENN: Listen to me.

STU: -- crashing --

GLENN: Listen to me. We have a poverty rate of 28.7% in this town and what they're going to do is they are also, not only the street lights, not only the solar powered on town hall but they are also going to build solar powered recharging stations for electric golf carts and electric cars.

STU: For the -- they are going to -- the 28.5% poverty rate place is going to --

GLENN: 28.7%.

STU: Oh, 28.7, just in case people have --

GLENN: If they are running with their golf cart, they are running a little late on the links and they say to themselves, jeez, now I'm out of battery juice.

STU: Let me ask you this question: If you have -- sure, 28.5 poverty rate sounds high. Sure, Nepal in the United States sounds bad.

GLENN: Sure.

STU: But what is the poverty rate if Greenland melts and it coats all of this town in 4,000 feet of water? What's the poverty rate then?

GLENN: I don't know.

STU: What's the drowning rate?

GLENN: I don't know.

STU: Yeah, you don't know, do you?

GLENN: I don't know.

STU: Yeah, that's why you don't run Edwards --

GLENN: The mayor says, "Do you know how hard it is to fund some of these projects when your tax base is so low?" The solar powered recharging stations for your golf carts, it's really that hard, really, to fund them when your tax base is low. He said, we just breathed a sigh of relief when we found out about this stimulus package, especially since it has a focus on renewable energy. See what I mean?

STU: I'm sorry. How else are you going to play golf at night? I want to know.

GLENN: I don't know.

STU: You don't know, do you?

GLENN: The outlay of $54.4 million will also go for water pipelines beneath the roads to soak up the sun's rays and transfer the heat. This technology is currently being tried out in the Netherlands, which found that while the cost of installation was double that of normal gas heating, the system half the amount of energy required.

STU: Is it possible that the mayor of this --

GLENN: Hang on. You half the amount of energy required, but you double the cost. I'm sorry. I thought that just didn't make sense.

STU: Is it possible that the mayor has been trying out other things that are legalized in the Netherlands?

GLENN: You mean like prostitutes? Edwardsville's biggest proposed expenditure is for a renewable energy museum. It will be a renewable energy museum and information dissemination center. So if you ever want to go and see a museum, you know, see stuff like on old solar panels, you can drive to Edwardsville, which is just right down the street after a several hour drive to be able to see that.

STU: Well, if you want to see solar panels that are twice as expensive as the normal power that they use, you can just go to the street lamps. But if you want to see the old-timey solar panels that were four times as expensive, you can go to the museum.

GLENN: And if you are driving your golf cart, don't worry, you'll be able to recharge it there. This is insanity! At the same time that Barack Obama says that he is going to cut out the pork spending, you've got to be kidding me. Why -- they don't need pork to put it in congress. It's already in it! Again like we talked about yesterday, the common sense is dead. Like we said yesterday, everybody is saying that we need to spend money to make money. Well, you don't spend money -- when you use that phrase, "We've got to spend money to make money," yes, that's usually actually putting the money into something that will generate money later. We have a better chance of spending money on ink and printing presses. The idea of spending money to make money is not to build a bunch of crappy museums.

Yesterday we told you about the, what was it, the Trenton Port Museum? No, I don't think so. Nobody is going to -- nobody goes to museums! .

You know there's this museum that is exactly like this renewable energy just outside of, what is it, Twin Falls, Idaho. I drive by it all the time. And it's all about the inventor of television. It's the Farnsworth museum. And I'm fascinated by Farnsworth, a boy who was in school when they were talking about how do you put images and send them through the air. And nobody could figure it out, and he was plowing this field and he realized, oh, my gosh, if we just take a picture and break it up in lines, I think we could send something like the field. And he had this great idea, and it became television. Well, I've always wanted to stop by that museum. I don't go! Because nobody has time to do the stupid museum! I mean, how much money did they spend on the Farnsworth museum? I hope that it was all privately funded, but in today's world I doubt it was. Now we're taking all of these, this money for museums. That is not the same as building a dam for hydroelectric power.

Let me ask you this: They are saying that the job numbers is the largest job number loss in 26 years. We now have, today's numbers, now since 1944, right -- or 1945. The last time the country lost this many jobs was 1945. Well, wait a minute. Wasn't that the beginning of the big boom for America? The answer is yes. So why was there such a huge loss in 1945? Because the government shed the jobs. The government didn't employ people anymore. The government didn't -- they weren't making tanks. But Ford was making aircraft engines and they turned that plant, starting in 1945, into their largest car manufacturing plant. People took the technology that was used for the war and used by the government and developed by the government money to be able then turn it into private industry. Private industry? Water slides? Zoos? This is infrastructure? We're talking about repairing bridges now, not inventing nuclear power. We took nuclear power. We funded the Manhattan Project. It totally transformed the world. We took and we developed the jet engine. It totally transformed the world. I'm sorry, but the renewable energy in our street lamps is not going to transform the world. So when the government money stops, what have you built that can now be used as the private sector to create new jobs? You've built nothing. This is not long-term thinking. This is short-term death.

 

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."

A recent report from Rolling Stone details a public letter sent to Spotify — signed by "270 physicians and scientists" — demanding that the platform implement a "misinformation policy" in response to Joe Rogan's recent interview with Dr. Robert Malone on “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

"This is absolute fascism," Glenn Beck said on the radio program. "There is no safe space. They're coming after talk radio. They're coming after our podcasts. They're coming after our websites."

Glenn said this is this is just one more example of the left's crackdown on freedom of speech and further prove of their ongoing fight against free thinkers or anybody who wants to have an open conversation that may include ideas contrary to what they believe.
