Arguing With Idiots - YouTube contest


Arguing with Idiots Video Contest


You could win a trip to NYC to meet Glenn! Learn how...

GLENN: And let me tell you something. This is not about our generation. This is about the next generation, and the next generation in this country, they have got to know the truth. We have got to teach them about heroes. We have to teach them about the founding, and we have to teach them the facts. That's why Arguing With Idiots came out, and we put it out and it has 25 pages of fine print footnotes. 25 pages of fine print footnotes. Number one selling book in the nation, nonfiction. Dan Brown is beating us in fiction. Common Sense is its counterpart. We put that out, what, how many weeks ago? Sixteen weeks? Sixteen weeks ago we put it out. Kevin runs the publishing division for Mercury and is the co author on Arguing With Idiots. We've been working on this book for over a year. But my goal is to be able to get it into the hands of as many people as possible. This is the book that will show you how to win the arguments, and it's not an argument against the Republicans and the Democrats. It's not. It's an argument for the truth. Where that leads you in the polling booth is your own decision.

So we have several things that we're working on now to help get this book out into the hands of those who need it the most, and one of those is I mean, if you look at the difference between Common Sense, Common Sense I wrote for thinking people that don't need a lot of pictures or anything, just want the facts. There are no drawings in there except for the gerrymandering redistricts. But there's no comedy in that book. That is just, "Here, here's the meat and potatoes" for serious people who are awake and go oh, dear God. And I made it short and I made it in a paperback so you could hand it to somebody, you could use it and say, no, no, no, the Republicans and the Democrats, both did this; here it is. And you could pass it to somebody. This one we specifically designed, riddled with ADD, we specifically designed to be easy to read for everyone. The serious thinker and the person that is, you're saying, no, no, you don't understand; here are the facts. And especially the 20 somethings, college students. Jon Stewart wrote a book that was huge with college students. This is the entryway for anybody who is struggling in college.

Now, you've put a contest together, Kevin?

KEVIN: Yes.

GLENN: What is it?

KEVIN: We're lazy, as you know. So we're sick of marketing this book ourselves. So we thought we would we thought we would have other people help us market it.

GLENN: Okay.

KEVIN: So the idea here is and all the information's on GlennBeck.com. But the idea here is you create a video. So if you are an animator, it could be an animation. We sent a guy to Berkeley a couple of weeks ago to talk to Berkeley kids and see how little they know.

GLENN: It's great.

KEVIN: You can do that kind of whatever you want to do that you think gets the message of arguing out the most, explains the book, promotes the book, whatever. Put a video together. Throw it up on YouTube. Come to GlennBeck.com, you feel like

GLENN: Hang on. Did we ever do the cover idea, the different cover idea?

KEVIN: Yes.

GLENN: At the colleges? We did? Do we have that coming up?

KEVIN: We did it at Berkeley. We're going to do it at a few more places. We want to get some

GLENN: I don't want to tell you what it is, but it's fantastic.

KEVIN: So whatever you can think of creatively to do as sort of a video format and, of course, there's 1500 pages of rules. So I would say crimes are not a good idea. I would say nudity is not a good idea. Yes, Stu?

STU: What? No, I didn't say that out

GLENN: Read the rules, Stu.

STU: Oh, okay.

KEVIN: So you create your video, throw it up on YouTube, fill out the form where you basically tell us where it is. Then we're going to judge them all and then we're going to pick our favorite ten videos. We're going to put them up on GlennBeck.com in about a week or so. And from that point your whole job is, if you're one of the ten finalists, your whole job is to promote your video. So this

GLENN: So wait a minute. How come it has to go through a gatekeeper like us? How doesn't it just let the people decide? Why are you so against

KEVIN: We hate democracy.

GLENN: Oh, okay. Good, I just wanted to know.

KEVIN: So at that point it actually and this was the hardest thing explaining to people of how this contest is different. It actually has no it does not matter how good your video is at this point if you are one of the ten finalists. It only matters how well you can promote your videos. You get to see what it's like in our shoes. It doesn't matter if the book's good or not. It's how you promote the book. So if you get your video linked from Drudge, you get yourself on the Today, whatever you can do to promote your video. Whoever has the most hits of their video according to YouTube by the deadline date, which is all again in the rules, will be the winner and you'll come and

STU: What's the prize, Kevin?

KEVIN: Well, Stu, I'm glad you asked. The prize is a trip for two to lovely Manhattan.

STU: Lovely Manhattan!

KEVIN: Where you'll dine at Glenn Beck's favorite New York City restaurant.

STU: Yummy.

KEVIN: You'll watch the radio show.

STU: Radio!

KEVIN: You'll take cabs.

STU: Cars! We won't pay for the cabs.

KEVIN: Walk the streets.

STU: You'll be using your own cash, your credit cards.

GLENN: You are making them to be a streetwalker?

STU: Apparently you'll have other duties you'll be doing at night to earn your keep.

GLENN: ACORN. We're in bed with ACORN now apparently. And then you come and watch the TV show. So you get to spend the day with us. You know, I'm looking for creative people, quite honestly. There are many reasons why we do things we do. I'm looking for very creative people. You get this video out, you get it into the colleges, you get it into the hands of 20 somethings with the best video you can make on YouTube and I'd love to meet you. You can find out all the details at GlennBeck.com. By the way, the book is available at bookstores everywhere, coast to coast. Arguing With Idiots.

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.

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."
