NYT blames Glenn Beck for shootings




Glenn Beck's Common Sense


The Case Against an Out-of-Control Government, Inspired by Thomas Paine

GLENN: This is absolutely amazing. I have to just go all over this Paul Krugman editorial because I read the whole thing now. It is absolutely amazing. In the New York Times today the big hate, backs in April there was a huge fuss by the Department of Homeland Security warning of conditions resembling those in the 1990s, a time marked by an upsurge of rightwing extremism that culminated in the Oklahoma City bombing.

STU: May I just mention one thing real quick before you go on?

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: The idea that this report is just, somehow this murder justifies that report, does anyone in the their right mind believe that what the Department of Homeland Security had in mind were World War II veterans who fought to free and end the Holocaust going to murder people at the Holocaust museum. I would like to know if there's any evidence that has anything even

GLENN: Veterans, they said veterans. They said veterans!

STU: It's so bad. Like they were talking about 90 year olds. I was listening to a show the other day, there was that thing, the footage of the cop who tasered the 72 year old woman they were running on the other day and it was like everyone was making fun of them. Like, oh, a 72 year old woman who's getting tased, all right, cop, calm down. Here's a 90 year old guy. There's no way the Department of Homeland Security was taking into account.

GLENN: They said veterans.

STU: That anyone with World War I might be involved.

GLENN: Conservatives were outraged. The chairman of the RNC denounced the report as an attempt to segment out conservatives in the country who have a different philosophy, different view, blah, blah blah. But with the murder of George Tiller, an antiabortion fanatic closely followed by a shooting of a white supremacist, you know, it begins to make the Homeland Security look great. There is however one important thing that the DHS report didn't say. Today as in the early years of the Clinton administration but to an even greater extent rightwing extremism is being systematically fed by the conservative media and political establishment. Wow. Now, I mean, they don't even see the beam in their own eye. Now for the most part the likes of Fox News and the RNC haven't directly incited violence. For the most part. For the most part we haven't directly incited violence. Got that? In any part. Has anyone at any time in the RNC or on Fox News incited violence? I'd like to see one.

STU: Directly.

GLENN: Direct, is there anyone, for the most part.

STU: Meaning

GLENN: We haven't directly incited violence.

STU: Meaning there was a part where you did which is again a blatant lie.

GLENN: Yes. Despite Bill O'Reilly's declarations that some call Dr. Tiller, Tiller the baby killer and that he had blood on his hands and that he was a guy operating a death mill all of those are true. All of those are true. But they have gone out of their way to provide a platform for conspiracy theories and apocalyptic rhetoric just as they did the last time the Democrat held a White House.

I want you to know the last time a Democrat held the White House was under Bill Clinton. I wasn't a fan of Bill Clinton, but I wasn't apocalyptic ranting on Bill Clinton. I've never said the thing, I've never said the things I believe that are happening right now that I'm saying right now. I've never believed these things, never before have I believed them. And I don't believe them because it's a Democrat in the White House. I was starting to say these things under George W. Bush four years ago. At this point whatever dividing line there is between mainstream conservativism and black helicopter crowd seems to have been virtually erased. Exhibit A for the mainstreaming of rightwing extremism is Fox News' new star Glenn Beck. Here we have a network where, like it or not, millions of Americans get their news. Like it or not. It gives daily airtime to a commentator who among other things warned viewers that the FEMA agency might be building concentration camps of the Obama administers's totalitarian agenda. Never, ever have I said that, never. I go ahead, Stu.

STU: You did just say it when you were reading Paul Krugman saying it.

GLENN: I with an exception of that time and the last time I read this review, I have never, ever said that. The reason why we did this, if you listen to this program, I had a caller call me on the air and I said can we I snapped one day and said, can we stop with the FEMA camp! Stu, I want somebody correct me if I'm wrong, Stu. Stu, I want somebody to prove it or disprove it. That's all I want. I want it over. It's either true or it's not. I've never believed in the FEMA camp.

STU: No.

GLENN: Never. Never.

STU: Yeah. And, you know, luckily it happened in a national radio show, so anyone could find out about it. But the other thing is, you know, when you did the debunking of this with Popular Mechanics is when I learned it started back in the Clinton administration. To me it was always a Bush administration conspiracy theory.

GLENN: Yep.

STU: Had nothing to do with Obama. Had been in office for like a month. He's not that fast. I mean, he's pretty fast as we've seen.

GLENN: And then he says, although I eventually conceded that nothing of the kind happened.

STU: You can't eventually no.

GLENN: It's no more of a lie than "For the most part I haven't directly incited violence."

STU: Right, it's no more of a lie than that. The same amount of lie.

GLENN: But let's not neglect the print news media. In the Bush years the Washington Times became an important media player because it was widely regarded as a Bush administration's house organ. Oh, kind of like the New York Times and MSNBC. Earlier this week the newspaper sought fit to run an opinion piece declaring that Obama not only identifies with Muslims but may actually still be one himself and that any case he has aligned himself with the radical Muslim brotherhood.

Find out who said that in the opinion because now we're going after opinions. There's a chill wind blowing in this country. I believe it was Tim Robbins that said that. Now we're going after opinions. And then there is Rush Limbaugh. His rants today aren't very different from his rants in 1993. Yes, they are. But he occupies a different position on the scheme of things. Remember during the Bush years Mr. Limbaugh became a very much political insider. According to the recent Gallup survey, 10% of Republicans now consider him the main person who speaks for the Republican Party. 10%. Just to put this in perspective, 10% believe that we haven't walked on the moon. 12% believe we blew up the World Trade Center. What is the percentage who believe that bush and Cheney blew up the levees in New Orleans? 10%? And that makes him, yeah, that's worth printing. So when Mr. Limbaugh peddles conspiracy theories suggesting, for example, that the fears over swine flu are being hyped to get people to respond to government orders, that's a case of conservative media establishment joining hands with the lunatic fringe. Is it? See, this is the kind of stuff that they said when I said they're going to nationalize our banks. I said that under George W. Bush. This isn't Republican solemn Democrat. Do not fall for this bogus game. They need us to be fighting Republican and Democrat. It's both of them. I said to you two years ago they are going to nationalize our banks. They have. Why was I such a fear monger two years ago? Or am I responsible for the nationalizing of the banks? Oh, my gosh, it's my fault! It's not surprising politicians are doing the same thing. The RNC says the Democratic Party is dedicated to restructuring American society along socialist ideals.

That is true. Maybe the first sentence that you printed, Paul Krugman, that is true.

When Jon Voight the actor told an audience at a Republican fundraiser this week the president is a false prophet, true. And that we alone are in the right frame of mind to free this nation from this Obama oppression. Untrue. Mitch McConnell, the Senate minority leader, thanked him for saying that he really enjoyed his remarks. Credit where credit is due. Some figures in the conservative media have refused to go along with the big hate. Oh, jeez.

STU: Don't tell me David Frum and David Brooks.

GLENN: No, shepherd Smith.

STU: Oh, Shep. Shep is a news man. He is not part of the conservative media. He is a news person.

GLENN: Yep.

They debunked the attacks on Homeland Security report two months ago but this doesn't change the broad picture which is that supposedly respectable news organizations and political figures are giving aid and comfort to dangerous extremism. This from the paper that this from the paper that has been giving aid and comfort to our foreign enemies. What will the consequences be? No one knows, of course. Though the analysts at Homeland Security fretted that things may turn out even worse than in the 1990s. Thanks in part to the election of an African American president. Remember you are an extremist, you are a hate monger. You want to destroy the country. You want to kill all abortion doctors and you hate black people. The threat posed by lone wolves and small terrorist cells is more pronounced than in past years. That is a threat to take seriously.

Really? Paul Krugman, we should take a terror threat seriously? Why the fear mongering from the New York Times?

Yes, the worst attack in our history was perpetrated by a foreign conspiracy. Are you a conspiracy theorist? Why all of these conspiracies in the New York Times? Trying to wrap yourself around more fear? But the second worst, Oklahoma City bombing was perpetrated by an all American lunatic. Politicians and media organizations wind up such people at their and our peril. You are exactly right. Just like you've wound up ELF. You wound up the guy who thinks that American soldiers are baby killers and that's why he went down to Alabama and shot our troops. You know that guy who rolled the grenade underneath the tent? Remember at the beginning of the why? Paul Krugman, New York Times.

STU: Personally responsible, Glenn. I don't see how you can see it any other way, if you're Paul Krugman.

GLENN: I just want to say I would just, I would just like to point out the fact that remember, the guy who I'm now responsible for, for the shooting at the Holocaust museum, these are his views that we know. He wants to dissolve Israel. I don't. He hates Jews. I don't. He believes George W. Bush is behind 9/11. I don't. He hates Bill O'Reilly. I don't. He has threatened to bomb the weekly standard. Well, I read the weekly standard. He hates neocons. We may join here slightly. He hates the Fed. Me, too. Targeted Fox News. Well, I'm going to let you in on a little secret. My plan was to go over to Fox News as a CNN plant and destroy their ratings. Oops, it didn't work out that well, but my intention was to target Fox News. And he hates blacks. I don't.

Now, let's just look. Is he a rightwing extremist or a leftwing extremist? Let's just go through them. Dissolve Israel and hates Jews. No, that's pretty much leftwing, not right. George W. Bush behind 9/11, pretty sure that's leftwing. Hates Bill O'Reilly, that's all wings.

STU: That's leftwing, though.

GLENN: Yeah, it is, clear.

STU: That's the Keith Olbermann program. The entire thing is designed for it.

GLENN: Exactly right. Bombs the Weekly Standard, that would be leftwing. Hates neocons, that would be leftwing. In fact, if I hear Paul Krugman mention neocons one more time! Hates the Fed, that's everybody outside of politics. Targeted Fox News, that would be the leftwing. And hates blacks. Well, let me just give the rightwing one point here. I have to give it to the left as well, but let me give it to the right here just because I feel bad because they have been shut out! This is a rightwing extremist, this guy, this is a rightwing extremist to Paul Krugman. Now, do you think with these views with an exception of Hates the Fed," this guy could stomach two minutes of my show? Do you think he could stomach two minutes? I can guarantee you if this guy would have ever saw my show, he was calling me a Jew lover the whole time.

STU: Would that be in our hour long interview with Benjamin Netanyahu?

GLENN: Might be where I said you are being set up, you are going to be left alone?

STU: You didn't believe in the last one I thought. I thought you were denying the last one. Why would you say another Holocaust might be coming from Iran?

GLENN: Well, because that's what rightwing people do. Now

STU: Listen to this. Glenn, real quick. Look at all, look at how far we've come. In real life you start here and you say, did we'll call you Person B. Did Person B kill anybody? No. Did Person B go with Person A to kill somebody?

GLENN: No.

STU: Did person A tell Person B to do it?

GLENN: No.

STU: Did Person A listen to Person B?

GLENN: Don't think so.

STU: As far as we don't know. We're already past all of this. Did Person A share the same views as Person B?

GLENN: No.

STU: And this is what we get to with Paul Krugman. Will people check on it.

GLENN: No.

STU: If it will clear that level, they will print it. If people just will not check on questions 1 through 5 and just skip to question 6 and say, "All right, well, you know what, they probably won't you know what, they think this guy had a gun. He's probably rightwing." This is how low the standard is to blame conservatives for these things. There's not even evidence that any of these people even listen to you in any other way of saying, "I hate that guy because he doesn't like hate Jews as much as I do."

GLENN: Wasn't that the guy, the guy who shot the cops in Pittsburgh, where they also blamed that one on me. You notice that one went away. Do you know why? Because we exposed that they were saying, he listened to Glenn Beck, he posted something about Glenn Beck on this rightwing extremist, you know, website. Remember, they were saying that? Oh, some white power website. He was posting about Glenn Beck. That was their evidence that he was a fan and that I got him to go shoot cops. Do you know what he posted? AntiGlenn Beck stuff!

STU: Because you wouldn't go with him to his crazy conspiracy theories.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Specifically the FEMA camp thing, which is specifically what Paul Krugman cites as your evidence. That's how weak this is. It is so insulting to your intelligence if you actually think about it.

GLENN: If you think about it.

STU: If you think about it, which they don't, do they? Do they? Do you, Paul? You don't. You've never thought in your life.

GLENN: He's more angry than I am.

STU: No, I just hate this, it is so weak.

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.
