GLENN: Well, let's take a look at what happened yesterday. I have heard some unbelievable spin on television and ‑‑

PAT: Like what?

GLENN: Hmmm?

PAT: Like what? That the Democrats were running uphill in New Jersey?

GLENN: No.

PAT: I mean, New Jersey, the most liberal, one of the most liberal Democrat states.

GLENN: No, forget about the liberal states.

PAT: An incumbent running uphill?

GLENN: And how much more did he spend?

PAT: Two to one.

STU: Yeah, if you've got double the money, you are a self, self‑finance, you can spend pretty much whatever you want.

PAT: Whatever you want.

STU: You are in a liberal state, you are a liberal guy.

PAT: Obama showed up in the last, what, week to support and still lost by five.

GLENN: May I just play word association game. New Jersey.

PAT: Corruption.

GLENN: New Jersey?

PAT: Corruption.

GLENN: New Jersey.

PAT: Corruption.

GLENN: It's corruption, unions, mob, ACORN. I mean, if you want to talk about a state where you can throw the election. I mean, I just, I kept thinking last night with New Jersey, please just don't let it be close enough for a recount because if it's a recount, I mean, it's over.

STU: The great, great stat out of the exit polls last night.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Of you've got, you want to know how bad the taxes are in New Jersey. You have a state that just fired 40 officials for corruption, and corruption was still behind property taxes.

GLENN: That's amazing.

PAT: Look, stop asking Jon Corzine to mop a certain way, all right? He's just picking up a mop and he's mopping.

GLENN: All he's doing.

PAT: It's not a corrupt mop, it's not a socialist mop.

GLENN: It's a mop.

PAT: It's standing on the sidelines and telling him how to mop.

STU: That one's surprising, though.

GLENN: New Jersey is surprising.

STU: I have to apologize, New Jersey. I called you out and I said you would not be able to do it. I would not have believed it. That's amazing.

GLENN: Well, so we have New Jersey. And again remember only outspent 2‑1 and had, what, 115,000 votes for an independent?

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: And still one. Then you have Virginia. Now look, you can hear all you want about, well, it's always, it goes the opposite way. Really? By 20 points? By 20 points?

PAT: A landslide. That was a mandate.

GLENN: Then you have New York 23, and I love the propaganda on this one. First of all, this just shows ‑‑ I mean, when you've lost Virginia by 20 points, Corzine loses in the most corrupt state in the union. No, my apologies to Massachusetts. You may actually be ‑‑

PAT: And Louisiana.

STU: And Illinois.

PAT: And Illinois.

GLENN: Isn't that weird where all these policies are coming from. It's weird. But anyway, when you lose that, when you've got the Democrats coming out and saying, yeah, but the congressional district 23. And here's their case: Well, you know, this just shows the failure of the tea party. Okay. Let's just go through this. Let's just go through this. If I heard that one more time last night, I was going to blow my head off. Here it is. This is the failure, okay? That a guy who is not electric ‑‑

PAT: A total unknown.

STU: An accountant.

PAT: Start with that.

GLENN: Could I make the case?

STU: You are making a good, so far ‑‑

PAT: You are making it wrong. So we're trying to help.

GLENN: He is not electric at all. He is ‑‑ I mean, God bless him.

STU: Admittedly.

GLENN: Yeah. I like him, but he is not, he's not flashy. He's an accountant eight weeks ago that nobody even knew, a complete unknown. He's a third party guy. The Republicans spent with what's her face, Scuzzia, they gave her, I believe it was $800,000? Is that right?

STU: It's about a million.

PAT: They had $4 million in the coffers.

GLENN: To destroy him. To destroy him. Then she drops out of the race and then she unites with the Democrats who are also spending money hand over fist to destroy the accountant! And you win by 3 points? That's a victory? You've double‑teamed an accountant and you only won by three points. Boy, you guys are good.

PAT: Yeah, what a failure that tea party was.

GLENN: That's like the Yankees playing a high school team and winning by three runs. Oh, wow!

STU: Yeah. And I think even Doug Hoffman would admit that he had no right to be against the political machine and be that close.

GLENN: Right. And here's what the ‑‑ forget about the Democrats. Here's what the Republicans should learn. The tea party movement, if you think you're going to run people that are going to be, you know, ACORN wannabes and they're just part of the corruption, part of the system, if you're going to run those people, you can expect a tea party guy to come out, and the tea parties, they'll help you lose every single election. Every single election. Because I for one am not ‑‑ if I believe in the Republican, I'll vote for the Republican. But if you're running somebody who's like part of the system, I'm not interested. I'm not interested. And I think that a lot of Americans are like that. So the Republicans have a choice to make. You can either spend a million dollars trying to destroy a third party accountant, or you could say, wow, this accountant probably would come in within three points of beating the Democrat if we combined our efforts, Republicans and Democrats, spent a fortune, had our candidate then drop out and campaign for the Democrats, we might be able to come in with about a 3‑point margin. You might want to just say, "Maybe we should go with the accountants. Maybe we should go with the regular people."

STU: It's so funny the way they spin the blame on this. The current thing was two close candidates and someone who got about 5%, the Republican in this case got 5%. So who ‑‑ and in a close race. So who's at fault? In this one, of course, it's still the conservative. If it was reverse and it was a Democrat and Republican that were close and the conservative third party only got 5% but it was this close, who else would be blamed? Of course the conservative would be blamed in that case, too.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: It doesn't even matter. Just, it's the conservative fault.

GLENN: I don't hear anybody, I don't hear anybody talking about in the news, did you hear anybody talking about how Scuzzia goes and campaigns for the other party? That's outrageous. That is out, just absolutely outrageous.

STU: Yeah, it's one thing to zip your mouth and not get involved and I think, you know, that ‑‑

GLENN: Can you imagine if Hillary Clinton would have campaigned for John McCain?

STU: That's a great point. Can you even imagine?

GLENN: Can you even imagine what would be said? The press is like, "No big deal; she's a Republican. Of course she wants to..." stand up for what? The system, the two‑party system that is clearly now colluding with each other? Oh, wow. Yeah, that's going to hurt the tea party movement. I mean, jeez.

STU: And I love this, too. They are trying to make this out to be some dramatic thing: Look how bad this hurt the Republicans. Okay, so let me get this straight. We've sent them a great message about how you actually have to stand for something. And for the next year, not even two years, but one year the Democrats will have an 80‑seat advantage instead of a 79‑seat advantage? I think that's a price I'm willing to pay here.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: To send them a message of, hey, run some candidates that actually believe in something.

GLENN: This is setting the stage for ‑‑ it's going to dwarf 1994, dwarf it. Dwarf it. What's coming next year, dwarf.

STU: You mean a dwarf candidate? Are you saying that you believe ‑‑

GLENN: Yes, we're going to go for accountant ‑‑

STU: To be a mini candidate?

GLENN: Yeah, accountant mini me's. Yes.

STU: That's what you're predicting?

GLENN: No, I really think that this is going to make what happened in 1994 look small. Look, here's the message to me that was sent. Do you know how much money Mayor Bloomberg spent to become mayor?

PAT: $100 million.

GLENN: $100, come on, mini me, million dollars.

PAT: Million dollars.

STU: Million dollars.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

PAT: On a mayoral race.

GLENN: I couldn't tell you ‑‑ Sarah, what's the name of the guy that he was running against? Do you even know?

SARAH: Bill Thompson.

STU: She knows because I asked her to pull an ad this morning.

GLENN: Really?

STU: To make a point on this race.

GLENN: I thought it was Robinson. I had no idea. Okay? $100 million. New Yorkers generally ‑‑ I thought New Yorkers really liked him. I think the guy ‑‑ anybody who says, "You know what, we're going to make this, we're going to make this the safest city in the country, or in the world, and we're going to put as many cameras up that are in London, the most surveilled population on planet Earth because..." and if I may quote: We can't just have people walking around thinking they can just go anywhere they want. What?

STU: Who couldn't ‑‑ what's not to love?

GLENN: What's not to love about Mayor Bloomberg? He spends $100 million to become the mayor of New York City. I thought it was a giant waste of money because I just thought everybody just loved Michael Bloom ‑‑ it's New York. Of course they're like, yes, yes, surveillance is good and we shouldn't have any guns, either, and the government is great.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: He won by, what, 4 points?

PAT: Five, five points.

GLENN: Five points.

PAT: Five points after a $100 million campaign.

GLENN: I can't even name the other guy.

STU: Yeah. The only reason I knew who the other guy was was because Bloomberg mentioned him so much in his ads.

PAT: Because he mentioned him. That's the only reason.

GLENN: That is the only reason why I know him because there was something about, same old policies, big tax. That's the only reason why I know that guy.

PAT: I've been here for three months. I have never once seen a Bill Thompson commercial on New York television. Not one.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: I have seen thousands of Michael Bloomberg commercials.

GLENN: Oh, they were running ‑‑

PAT: Thousands.

GLENN: In New York they were running like two ads per breaks.

STU: Two per break.

PAT: Per break.

STU: In the exit polls it showed that he had about a 70% approval rating. So it wasn't that they necessarily didn't like Bloomberg but they said ‑‑

GLENN: But listen. Go ahead. What did they say?

STU: They said ‑‑ one of the main things that they said they didn't like was this guy changing laws so that he could rerun.

GLENN: Exactly, right.

STU: The power.

GLENN: Listen to that. Listen to that.

PAT: Which he fought with Giuliani.

GLENN: He fought with Giuliani. Giuliani after 9/11 said let me ‑‑ I can stay just a little longer.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Just a few more months. Absolutely not. Nobody is that special that they have to stay in office. This is an American principle; the law is clear. What does he do? He gets the city council to change the law so he can run for a third term.

PAT: Which he does.

STU: That's amazing.

GLENN: And he wins. This is exactly what Americans are sick of. And somebody in New York, a mayoral candidate that isn't bad. Look, New York, I mean, look, New York always sucks. But it doesn't ‑‑ I mean, it's ‑‑ okay, people ‑‑ it is hard to get across the bridges and through the tunnels because of all the moving vans from anybody who has any money whatsoever. They're fleeing this city like crazy. Okay, and he did, because he couldn't get his little green thingy, threw a temper tantrum and he decided to relieve New York traffic by making Broadway into a park, which, I don't know anyone that can explain how that eased traffic. But he's not a horrible mayor. He's not a horrible mayor and yet he spends $100 million and only wins by five points. You better look out. Incumbents, you better look ‑‑ you better have the Obama war chest because an accountant with no name or a guy who nobody even knows. Who is this guy that's running against Bloomberg? You might as well say "That guy" or just put on the other line "The other guy for mayor." I mean, it was that shocking to me.

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.

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?"
