Glenn Beck: This Is the Best America Has to Offer?




Watch

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

On Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that Labor Secretary Hilda Solis said her agency will seek to enact an array of 90 rules and regulations next year aimed at giving more power to workers and unions.

That's exactly what we need! Haven't we all been screaming for more powerful unions in this country? I think we all miss the days of John Gotti, Sr., don't we?

But don't worry, here's all she wants to do: According to the Journal, Solis' agenda will, "promote rules requiring employers to increase disclosure to workers on how their pay is computed, strengthening Affirmative Action requirements for federal contractors and compelling greater disclosure from employers about their dealings with consultants who advise the companies on how to deal with workplace unions or unionization attempts."

Disclosure on "how their pay is computed"? What does that even mean? Don't you agree to a wage when you're hired and then that wage shows up in your check, minus what the government takes? Have you been wondering how your pay is computed?

Also, if Hilda Solis gets her way, as an employer, you will be compelled to share private conversations you have with people who talk to you about unions at your company. You'll be forced to turn that information over.

Why don't we just mandate that SEIU President Andy Stern is in charge of every corporation in America? Or at least give him the name and home address of every executive in American business and provide Stern and his goons with all the free clubs they need to beat those company heads into submission? Metaphorically speaking, of course — even though Stern has acknowledged, he's not above a show of power:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

ANDY STERN, PRESIDENT OF SEIU: We're trying to use the power of persuasion. And if that doesn't work we're going to use the persuasion of power.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

It's obviously not a coincidence that Stern shows up at the White House more than anyone else; judging by Solis' announcement he's apparently having quite an impact on policy.

SEIU and Andy Stern seem to be getting their way on just about every issue with this administration. Obama has told us that Stern is his go-to guy when it comes to health care. In fact, Obama has told SEIU on several occasions that their agendas are the same:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

BARACK OBAMA: Your agenda has been my agenda in the United States Senate. Before debating health care, I talked to Andy Stern and SEIU members.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Then he talks about his relationship with SEIU Local 880 in Chicago:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: We organized voter registration drives. That's how we built political power on the south side of Chicago.

(CHEERS)

And now the time has come for us to do it all across the country...

(CHEERS)

We are going to paint the nation purple with SEIU.

(CHEERS)

S-E-I-U! S-E-I-U! S-E-I-U!

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

Wow, it seems Obama likes SEIU. It also seems that Andy Stern is reciprocating. On their Web site blog, SEIU is promoting the greatness of India's health care system. Get this: It's cheaper than here! Yes, who'd have guessed? Next, they'll be telling us that a Buick is cheaper than a Rolls Royce

Here's a look at the video from the SEIU blog:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

KARLYN ZIMBELMAN: I went to New Delhi, India to have a hip replacement about a month ago...

I think the American health care system is excellent, but I just think it's so expensive. Where's the money going? Why — why is other countries being (sic) able to do something for a lot less, you know? Like, you know, if a hip replacement costs, like, you know, 12 — five probably, you know, with all the extra, you know — over there, well then why is it $40-, $50,000 over here? You know, where's the money going?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

Great question, Karlyn. I don't know... quality? The money goes to high-tech hospitals and doctors who studied at Harvard, rather than Gajra Raja Medical School.

You can buy a Gucci bag on any New York street corner for $4 — do you think it'll hold up like the $3,000 real thing?

And yes, some of that money winds up in the pocket of that skilled doctor to offset the 20 years of schooling he endured and loans he took out. Oh, and some of it goes to the 1 million SEIU workers in the health care industry, that have good American-class lifestyles, maybe a couple cars, great union benefits and homes with things we like to call indoor plumbing.

Meanwhile, Karlyn says she's in no pain — everything is great with her hip. And maybe that'll continue to be the case for her — I hope so — but if you have a choice between getting a hip replacement at the Mumbai Clinic and the Mayo Clinic, which do you choose?

SEIU is employing the same business model for health care that they use for all the rest. They are spreading their tentacles worldwide to enhance their membership dues. Andy Stern has openly shared his philosophy of a global union:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

STERN: What we're working towards is building a global organization. Because — you know, workers of the world unite, it's not just a slogan anymore. It's the way we're going to have to do our work.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

With SEIU expanding all over the globe, how do they make this all work? How does their union succeed for workers in both the United States and India? The U.S. and Bangladesh? The U.S. and Zimbabwe?

India's per capita income is $1,016. U.S per capita income is $27,000. Now, when you're making the pay scale equitable for the entire planet, is it more likely that Stern and SEIU will be able to bring the average pay in India up to $27,000 — over 27 times what workers there now earn — or that the average salary in America will be brought down the level of something more in line with the rest of the world?

A doctor in India earns around $5,760. The U.S. average is over $150,000. I don't want a discount doctor! I don't want discounted wages either and I know you don't. I don't think any of us want India's lifestyle here — that's why we live here. I mean I'm sure it's beautiful and everything, but even their main river sounds like a disease.

Stern would like nothing more than to collapse the wages of the American worker and with the wages, our economy. Then, he can assist the Obama administration in resetting America, in their new, unionized, wealth-redistributed world.

Andy Stern has a global master plan. It's the only way SEIU can continue to survive. The deals they've made for workers — they can't sustain what they've promised their members. That's why SEIU has put up only token resistance to the proposed tax on "Cadillac plans": Insurance plans worth $8,000 for an individual and $21,000 for a family. Stern knows that when those taxes kick in, the union will simply be "forced" to switch over to the government option and he'll let the taxpayer foot the bill.

What was his slogan again?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

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

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Unite to foot the bill for his grand scheme of wealth redistribution.

What is going on here? SEIU — a union with just 2 million members — seems to have set the agenda for controlling one-sixth of the nation's economy? And the person who apparently drew up the blueprint for their health care reform strategy is a convicted felon, who wrote the 10-step plan in federal prison — Robert Creamer.

Look, what's happening here is that SEIU sees the U.S. as just one small market in a burgeoning, global marketplace. It's the emerging countries they're concerned with now. They don't care about the American worker, they care about increasing their share of that global pie. Where are the majority of future SEIU workers going to come from? India, China, Pakistan, Copenhagen.

So, they'll do their best to bring those workers wages up slightly while our wages will have to come down dramatically for the workers of the world to unite.

They've already admitted that they know they have many members here illegally from all over the world and they don't care:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

ELISEO MEDINA, SEIU EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT: SEIU is the largest union of immigrant workers in the country. A number of them are undocumented. But let me hasten to add this: They are not just Latinos. In our membership there are Eastern Europeans, Irish, Polish, Indians, Chinese — the whole world is represented among the undocumented and also in our membership. We also represent American-born workers, legal residents.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Is this the best America has to offer?

We both know the answer to that question. We don't need to settle for a convicted felon who had too much time on his hands in prison so he wrote a health-care manifesto or for a union thug, bent on redistributing America's wealth to the rest of the world.

These two are just the hand-selected goons, who are leading the way down the road to total transformation. But Americans are catching on. So, when Harry Reid pleads his case as he did the other day:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

SENATE MAJORITY LEADER HARRY REID, D-NEV.: All the Republicans can come up with is: Slow down, stop everything, let's start over. If you think you've heard these same excuses before, you're right. When this country belatedly recognized the wrongs of slavery, there were those who dug in their heels and said slow down, it's too early, things aren't bad enough.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

We, the people, are thinking when has "just hurry up and do it" ever been the right strategy for something this big? It must be done now... but it won't start for four years?

What? Well, wait a minute. Why don't we take our time, do it right — make sure it's right — and then, once we're finished, if we decide to, we could still enact it by 2013?

No, instead: Don't think, don't ask, don't wait another second! This plan, drafted in federal prison back in 2006, is a plan that will cost over a trillion dollars but is somehow free. It adds 40 million patients and no doctors, but somehow doesn't ration care. It cuts Medicaid benefits, but no elderly suffer. It adds fees, taxes and bureaucracy, but no one pays.

If you believe that, you'll believe we've saved or created 200 million jobs this week alone and that the temperature is so hot right now, the Atlantic Ocean is boiling and despite the fact that we didn't have even one this year, hurricanes are more powerful, intense and frequent than ever before.

Don't think about any of this at all — just act now!

It only makes sense to people who will tell you to fly to the other side of the Earth for medical care, but then tell you to stop flying in jets because the Earth has a temperature.

The same people that believe that terrorists should be understood and tried in New York courtrooms, but Marines should be tried by the military; that terrorists who mutilate, burn bodies and hang them from bridges should be believed over our Navy SEALs.

Or that you can print money all you want because hyper-inflation would be good — it would pay off the debt and everyone will have money in their pockets. We have to keep spending our way out of enormous debt?

Again, don't think — just do it, right now!

The only thing it seems the administration really wants to hold off on — sit around and mull over and over in our minds, chew on it, let it just stew, simmer and settle — is getting help to our troops in Afghanistan.

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.
