Glenn Beck: SEIU vs. You




Watch

Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

Have you heard about Green Week over at NBC? Al Gore is going to be on — it's great. They are asking everyone to "go green" and "watch TV."

In California, they are trying to ban big screen TVs. Hey, GE: Won't turning on all of our TVs destroy the Earth?

That's why we aren't going green, we are going purple.

See, a purple shirt is the only thing that helps make any sense out of the health care bill. Without the purple shirt, this bill would make you say, "Why in the world would we do that?"

The American public doesn't want government-run health care and, for the first time in history, we don't think it's the government's place to give it to us.

We're the young girl saying "no" and government is Roman Polanski: In the end, we are all going to be cowering in France.

Why would we do it? We certainly can't afford it. Our unfunded liabilities in the U.S. are $105 trillion — that's promises we've made, but don't have the money to cover. And we are adding to that? A few months ago we were in a crisis that "we may not be able to reverse":

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Our nation will sink deeper into a crisis that, at some point, we may not be able to reverse.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Then we spent almost a trillion dollars on a stimulus that promised to keep unemployment under eight percent — now it's 10.2 percent. How is America supposed to feel confident that this time politicians will get it right?

Well, I don't. And by a look at the polls, most of America doesn't either. Look at the track record:

In 1967, the House Ways and Means Committee predicted future Medicare would cost about $12 billion. The actual number was $110 billion and last year it was well over $400 billion

They "estimated" $1 billion would last four months with "cash for clunkers." It was broke in one week.

Social Security will be bankrupt 30 years.

Obama has proposed at least $10 trillion in welfare spending, yet he tries to act like he's somehow being fiscally responsible. He uses the term "deficit neutral" a lot:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA, NOV. 9, 2009: Congress needs to know that when I say this has to be deficit neutral, I mean it.

OBAMA, JULY 29, 2009: I will not sign a health care bill that is not deficit neutral.

OBAMA, JULY 1, 2009: This can't add to our deficit. It's got to be deficit neutral.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

That's great. But how are you going to do that, exactly? Obama claims to remain "deficit neutral" by paying for this bill with "savings." I want to be fair to the president, so I've compiled a list of all the times government programs successfully "saved" money. Here they are:

I'm one of those old-fashioned people who do this crazy, wacky thing called "saving." Yes, if I want something I set money aside. And then I buy it. Whoa, that's radical isn't it?

Here's a question no politician will bother answering: If this bill doesn't kick in 'til 2013 (which is a convenient year, no? After the next presidential election? Hmm), why not just wait and see if we can save the money? And make the bill conditional on if we can actually get the savings before we fully commit? I know, more radical extremist talk!

Another question — again, I'm one of those hateful old-fashioned types, but when I hear $1 trillion, I'm thinking lap of luxury. I'm thinking Rolls Royce. But, by their own admission, this plan won't even cover everyone; as many as 30 million people will still have no insurance.

And we've all heard about the problems with others who have already tried similar programs:

• Doctor lotteries in Canada

• The 4,000 babies born in the hallways in Britain due to a shortage of delivery rooms

• Group doctors visits and long lines from Romney-Care in Massachusetts

It's the same story everywhere it's been tried. So, we take Rolls money when we already know we are going to get a Peugeot? It doesn't make sense.

Ah, but wait. I almost forgot: It's purple day. Let me summon the purple shirt. None of the stats add up, so why would we do this? Could it have something to do with special interests? No! It couldn't. The president himself said he was going to rid the capitol of those evil special interests:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

THEN-PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE BARACK OBAMA: We're going to have to change the culture in Washington so that lobbyists and special interests aren't driving the process and your voices aren't being drowned out.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

How is that working out? Let's start with some of those special interests:

The AARP is strangely for this plan, even though a majority of seniors oppose it. It's pretty obvious that cutting $500 billion from Medicare probably won't help the seniors already on it. Maybe they want it because of the estimated 12 million seniors who will need to purchase expensive Medi-gap insurance that is offered through (wait for it) the AARP.

Attorneys aren't complaining about the plan; they are licking their chops. It'll open up a whole new area of litigation. Before, attorneys who sued health care insurance companies for denied medical care were only entitled to the cost of the service which was denied. Under this legislation, attorneys could sue those same insurance companies for pain and suffering, lost wages, wrongful death — which translates to "gobs of cash."

What about those fence sitters in Congress? Those last-minute "yes" votes? What convinced them? Here's a few:

Rep. Anh Cao — the lone GOP vote — said it was "promises of future support for New Orleans."

Rep. Dennis Cardoza was assured he'd get drought assistance for his state.

Michael Michaud in Maine was won over with "personal coaxing" from the president. Personal coaxing? My grandfather would have called them bribes.

They don't care about what the constituents want. Remember the polls? We don't want this. They're on the take and guess who they are taking from? You.

And the biggest winner in the health care sweepstakes is: the unions.

Andy Stern, president of the SEIU, a union of 2.2 million people, leads the White House visitors list with 22 visits. What do they talk about together?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: Before debating health care, I talked to Andy Stern and SEIU members.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

He doesn't address your concerns or my concerns. No, he consults with Andy Stern at least 22 times.

Stern represents 2.2 million people. There are 3 million who watch this show. Could you imagine if the president of the United States said the person he talks to most on the issues of the economy and national defense is "Glenn Beck of Fox News" and I was the most frequent visitor of the White House? No one would stand for it.

The president shouldn't be talking to anyone who leads a group who leads 1 million, 2 million or 10 million. He's here to lead the entire group. You know, justice for all.

The reason continue to push for this when you are saying no is because you aren't the ones they are listening to. Unless you are wearing a purple shirt.

I said this well over a year ago, maybe two, that the unions desperately need government health care because they are in trouble. They've promised too much: Huge benefit packages and massive retirement pensions have unions scrambling to unload the burden. And guess who is the lucky recipient of that burden under Obama's plan?

You.

How could he do that? It doesn't make sense. But remember, his "life work" is not about you:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: I've spent my entire adult life working with SEIU. I'm not a newcomer to this.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

All his life he's been doing the SEIU's work. Work for those 2.2 million people. So we know the president has a lot in common with Andy Stern. Let's see if you do: What are his goals?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

ANDY STERN, PRESIDENT OF SEIU: Workers of the world unite, it's not just a slogan anymore it's a way we're going to have to do our work.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Workers of the world unite. Hmm, where have I heard that before? Oh yes: That's the communist slogan. Good thing there hasn't been a recent rash of communist radicals running around in the White House. Because then I'd really be concerned. Let's for a moment give old Andy the benefit of the doubt, that he just went to the Anita Dunn school of comedy, what else does he believe?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

STERN: The question is how is everyone going to share in the wealth? And I think that after we get through this health care situation and finally solve this problem of 223 years, you know, we are going to see a change in our labor laws.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

A 223 year mistake? First of all, it's 233 years. Which would be... America? Twenty-two visits. My work is their work. Let's paint the country purple. Purple? Why not red, white and blue? I'll show you why: SEIU just made a movie. The topic? How the SEIU got Obama elected. Here's the trailer:

(BEGIN 'LABOR DAY' VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: Ordinary people can do extraordinary things so long as they are organized, so long as the are mobilized, so long as they are unionized.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I would like to introduce to you the next president of the United States, Barack Obama.

OBAMA: Thank you, Cleveland.

(APPLAUSE)

Give it up for SEIU.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Whose interest is government acting on with this bill? They can't afford it. It doesn't cover everyone. Special interests are being paid off. It certainly doesn't seem to help you.

Let me give you a plan of action here, something positive you can do.

Six people in Congress are on the fence. They are up for re-election. If you live in their districts call and ask them: What have they been promised? What's in it for them? Remind them that you will be listening and watching. And if they come out for it, you'll work to campaign against them.

You see, right now, they only want one thing: To get re-elected. And they have more fear in the big purple monster than faith in we the people.

You speak without fear. Tell them no means no. But look out, the big purple monster doesn't take no for an answer.

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.
