Glenn's one on one with Sarah Palin



Pictures and video from Glenn's interview with Sarah Palin

GLENN: When I first walked in to this great restaurant I've never been to before, when I walked in, my makeup and hair people and everything that do all the stuff for our show, they were there and Sarah was sitting in a chair and she was she had her BlackBerry and she was going on her BlackBerry and I walked in and I said, Governor, how are you? And she said, Fine, Glenn. Oh, how great to meet you, etc., etc. And it was kind of an awkward because I feel like I know her and so I she was sitting in the chair and I kind of reached over and grabbed her hand and kissed her on the cheek and I said, Thank you so much for doing this. And she said, No problem. She said, I'm just preparing now. And I said, What do you mean? And she held up her BlackBerry and she said, Oh, I'm wondering why you have me here at the Statue of Liberty. And I said, Because it's a symbol of trust and I think that's what we've lost and that's what this show is about is trust and I want to point that out. And she said, So, you're not going to ask me about the 25 windows?

Stu: The 25 windows?

Glenn: I said, The 25 windows? What are you talking about, the 25 windows? She said, The 25 windows. Come on. Don't play with me. 25 windows, they stand for the different minerals. I said, You could be making that up right now. I have no idea. There are 25 windows in the Statue of Liberty?

Stu: And they stand for minerals?

Pat: I didn't know that.

Glenn: And she said, So, the seven points? I said, Which points? And she said, The ones on her head, you know, the crown. And I said, I mean, I can challenge you that it's not a crown, but what are the seven points? And she said, The seas and the continents. And I said, no, we're not going down that road. And she just looked at me like, Um Hum. And I turned around and I walked off for a minute. I come back and she's still Googling. So, now she's Googling now she's Googling Ellis Island. Her shields were so high. I have never met now, I will tell you this: Debra, who does makeup for the show, she was the one and I think I shared this story with you she was the one that said to me at the end of last year, she said, well, it's a year. How do you feel? And I said, Tired. And she said, Yeah. I can tell. And I said she said, I can tell. Television does that to you and television changes you. And I said, Oh, geez, Debra. Have I changed? She said, Yes, you have. And I said, Oh, this doesn't sound good. How? She said, It's actually quite sad. She said, You don't trust anybody anymore. When you came here a year ago, you trusted people. You don't trust anybody. And I said, It's true. I don't. I don't want that to bleed into my real life. I just don't trust Washington and I just don't trust anybody in the media, but other than that, I still trust people. Sarah Palin is exactly the same way. As high as my shields are when I, you know, bump into Katie Couric or, you know, I walk onto a set with Jay Leno or whatever, my shields are very high. I don't even think I have shields as big and as thick and as high as Sarah Palin. What she has gone through is remarkable. I asked her on the air and she didn't really answer, she didn't give the specifics. I said, Do you know when you stopped trusting people? And I don't think she'll mind me telling, because it was something that happened after the show, she told me the moment that she stopped trusting people in the media and it's exactly, exactly I mean almost identical situation on when I stopped trusting people in the media. The one thing I learned about Sarah Palin is we're very similar in our experiences . The other thing I learned about Sarah Palin is we couldn't be more different. Todd showed up with frost bite on his face. I said, you know it's 2009. You don't have to be outside anymore. And he just looked at my like I was an alien life form. He is a man's man and the most honest part of the conversation yesterday, the part where I went, this is why I like you, and I didn't say it out loud. I'm going to play it and I think it's why you like her, as well, but I don't know if it translated to television. I don't know if you could feel it, but a moment happened on television last night where, in fact, you can hear the pause before I ask the next question, because I was wrestling with what I was going to say because that one took me by surprise. All I can think is when she was saying it, was I believe you. I 100 percent believe you. You're telling the truth. And I'll play that for you here in just a second and share with you what happened afterwards, to where the point where she said, I can't trust people in the media at all.

(Out at 10:19 a.m.)

Glenn: 1 888 727 BECK. I want to play for you one of the more honest point, in fact, the point where I said, this is what America needs to know about Sarah Palin and it is the place where I thought she was the not that I felt that she was untruthful anywhere else. So, I can't say it was the most truthful, because I don't think she lied to me at all. I think she was the most unguarded here. I don't think anybody can ask her a question at this point and have her risk, you know you can't really know what a President is going to do unless they're willing to go out on a limb. You can't have a real conversation. This is what I tried to have with her yesterday, not an interview and a gotcha, but a conversation. And I think she is very cautious and so you can't really have that unless you can't really have a conversation unless the person is willing to risk and she's done I think she's done enough risking for awhile, but she spoke of the future and I believed her. We're going to play that here in a couple of seconds, because we have to take a break here and I don't want to cut it off and I want you to hear the whole thing. The other thing is I asked her on the air, When did you stop trusting? And she said whatever she said on the air, but off the air I had the magazine cover of Time that I signed and had the magazine cover of Newsweek, which she signed. The Newsweek cover was. Ment how do you stop this Sarah Palin problem? And had her in the, you know, shorts. Mine was on Time: Madman: Is Beck bad for America? So, we signed them for a charity thing that we're both involved in. And I said to her, you know, Sarah, this is when when this picture was taken, this is when I stopped trusting people. And I told her the story behind that picture and I told her the story approximate who took it and how they took it and how they just lied to me, without a soul, without a soul. This photographer was one of the most despicable people ever met because she didn't have any problem lying to my face and we had a contract on it and everything else and all the people involved were and then Time, they didn't care. They just took that photo and just used it in a different way and nobody cared. Nobody cared. And she looked at me and she said, this is the same story with me. This is when I knew. This is when I knew. She said that. We had a contract on that. It wasn't supposed to be used in any way. I said, same story. And she said when somebody I guess it's because you know, it's like the Native Americans. They didn't want their pictures taken because it takes your soul. That's kind of the way you feel when you first the photographer and they take a picture, they really are taking your image and you have to trust them. If you're going to do anything risky at all, you trust them and when they look you in the eye and say, No, no, no. Don't worry about it and then you go the extra distance and you have a contract but it doesn't matter, you think these people have no soul whatsoever. Is Sarah Palin the one? Could she be the next President of the United States? The answer is: Yes, but I have to give it a caveat because there's one thing that I require. There's one thing and I think you'll understand when I say it and I've only seen it from her one time and it's the one thing that Sarah Palin needs to have if she wants be to be the President of the United States, but I'm not convinced that she does want to be the President of the United States. I'm not convinced that's the direction she's going, and I'll share why I say that coming up in just a second.

(Out at 10:29 a.m.)

Glenn: 1 888 727 BECK, 1 888 727 BECK is the phone number. Sarah Palin, is she the one? People ask me all the time, Glenn, is she the one? Is she going to be the one? Can she be President, etc., etc. Can she be? Yes. Will she be? Well, if it's up to the Republicans, I doubt it. I think it's Mitt Romney's turn, which drives me crazy, but I think they take turns. Is she qualified? Yes, with a caveat. I need to see one thing and I didn't even feel it in her yesterday and it's really sad because it's a good thing that I didn't feel it in her. I've seen it only once from her and it was magnificent when I saw it, but if she wants to be the President of the United States, she needs to demonstrate it a couple of more times and I'll share that with you, coming up in just a second. I wanted to play the most honest thing and this is why this is, I think, the most important part of being President, myself. I mean, you have to have the aptitude and the intelligence and everything else, but, please, stop insulting Sarah Palin. I mean, all you have to do is go back and look at every single Republican. Look at them all. George Bush, he was dumb. George Bush, the first one, he was dumb. Ronald Reagan, he was dumb. Dan Quayle, he was dumb. Gerald Ford, he was dumb. Nixon was a crook. I mean, it is the MO on everybody. That is the way they do it. Let's stop buying into the dumb thing. You may not agree with her. You may not think she has the right answers. You may not have heard enough of the answers, whatever. That's fine. But she's not dumb. Stop insulting her. Here was the most, to me, the most honest piece during the hour long interview, it was this yesterday. Listen to the setup.

(Audio:)

Glenn: But the real answer is I came this close to losing my soul once because I bottomed out and went down the wrong path and excuse my poise voice. I'm sorry, Governor, but the I needed the atonement probably more than anybody else I know and I got it and I made a promise I would never I would never violate trust, I would keep my word, do the hard thing, I would I would follow just live the 10 commandments. Try that one on for size. I don't think you can go to Washington and not lose your soul.

Palin: Hum.

Glenn: I've never met somebody who went to Washington and came back and I went, you're a better person. Have you?

Palin: Come to think of it, I don't know if I have, Glenn.

Glenn: How do you

(Audio concluded.)

Glenn: Stop for a second. That was genuine. She didn't I don't think she had thought of it that way before. I could see in her that she was, you know, the hum, hum, but when I said, have you? That was an honest search in her, you know, data bank, scanning, scanning. No. But here it comes.

(Audio:)

Glenn: The system is so infected. How do you as an individual go in. I'm not asking if you're going to run, but let's just say you were going to run.

Palin: Uh huh.

Glenn: How do you go in and how do I, as a voter, know that you're not going to cut so many side deals to get that power, that by the time you have that power, you're no longer who we needed?

Palin: I think a voter first needs to sincerely know and it sounds impossible, but sincerely know who that candidate is to see what their track record is and to see if they have lost their soul along the way.

Glenn: We're not even talking about track record anymore. We're talking we're not talking about how did you vote. We're talking about trust. How do you restore trust and honor? How do you how do we even know anymore?

Palin: That's what everybody is asking. That's what those who are conscientious and concerned about America are asking and those who are so disenchanted and disgusted with Washington DC, I don't have that answer. I'm asking the same thing. How do we know that we can trust what's going on in the White House? The White House?

Glenn: Do you know?

Palin: I don't know. I don't know, but I don't feel that some of the things that they are doing are trustworthy.

Glenn: I have to tell you that every time I bring up your name and somebody says, who's out there, I answer one of two ways. I'm waiting for George Washington to appear and then it's usual followed by your name. And I say, but I don't know.

Palin: Uh huh, uh huh.

(Audio concluded.)

Glenn: Listen to her answer here. This is it.

(Audio:)

Glenn: I don't know I don't know if you're smart enough. I find this insulting. Your kids must find that extraordinarily insulting when they hear that. It's not that you're not capable or anything else. I don't know. I don't know I can't give my trust out to anybody anymore.

Palin: Yeah, yeah.

Glenn: Every time you do, they burn you. Every time you're, like, oh.

Palin: It's because we have a fallen world and mankind has fallen and we can never put I don't believe that we were created to be able to put our faith wholly, solely, except for our spouse, in another person, certainly not in a politician. I don't believe that except, you know, looking back on our founding fathers and seeing the sincerity there, the genuine love that they had of country, I don't think in recent days we can find too many of those politicians.

Glenn: That's why we've got to stop taking from the barrel and start picking from the free.

(Audio concluded.)

Glenn: Can you stop for a second? Notice she says a fallen world. I mean, this is, as many of the left has their Saul Alinsky speech, this is religious speak. We're in a fallen world. So, you can't, except for your spouse, which I really like her spouse, you can't really trust anybody but your spouse. You can't really lend that and get into anybody else but your spouse. I thought that was critical, but now listen.

(Audio:)

Glenn: founder?

Palin: You know, well, all of them because they came collectively together with so much diverse

Glenn: Bull crap. Who's your favorite?

Palin: so much diverse opinion and so much diversity in terms of belief but collectively to form the union.

Glenn: (Inaudible.)

Palin: No. And they were led by, of course, George Washington. So, he's got to rise to the top. Washington was the consummate statesman. He served. He returned power to the people. He didn't want to be a king. He returned power to the people. Then he went back to Mount Vernon. He went back to his farm. He was almost reluctant to serve as President, too. And that's who you need to find to serve in government, in a bureaucracy, that's who you know will serve for the right reasons, because they're reluctant to get out there and seek a limelight and see power. They're doing it for the people. That was George Washington.

(Audio concluded.)

Glenn: Okay. Now, everybody just let it run. Just let it run, Sarah. Just bring it down a bit. Everybody is everybody's talking about George Washington and she's talking about George Washington and everybody is saying that I said "bull crap" here, "Oh, bull crap," but listen to how she this is why she likes George Washington. Listen.

(Audio:)

Glenn: So beyond question that he can bring people together and say, Look. We've got to do this. It's going to be hard.

Palin: That's exactly what we need to seek in a candidate, someone I'll repeat this almost reluctant to serve. Someone who will not prostitute themselves and say what they believe a voter wants to hear at that time in order to get elected, but someone who the people find and ask, will you sacrifice, will you do this for our country to get us back on the right track.

Glenn: That is why I think you're on the most admired list, because some people find you to be that. As you came out of the blue and you did serve, you were asked to serve and you got butchered and you continually get butchered and, yet, you're still going.

Palin: Well, let me tell you one thing in that vein. I would be perfectly happy to go back to Wasilla, Alaska, with my five children and my grandson and raise a happy, healthy family, loving our great outdoors, doing the things that we do in Alaska, but if I believe that in some capacity I can help this great nation, I'm going to be willing to sacrifice and to

(Audio concluded.)

Glenn: Stop, stop. This was the most unguarded she was, when she said, I am absolutely willing to go back to Wasilla and live out my life. That eight seconds was absolutely true. I think there's a big part of her that says and I think part of it I don't have anything to back this up except my thinking about Todd with frost bite all over his face, standing there Manhattan. I mean, this is, like, a foreign this is like putting, you know this is like putting Norah O'Donnell on the moon. I mean, it's a foreign landscape. Putting Todd Palin in Manhattan had be to be just like, what am I doing here? It's weird here. He's got frost bite on his face because he was out having fun and doing you know, living the great outdoors. There's a big part of her that I think would be totally fine and wrestles with, I'm just going back. I don't need this. I don't care. A willingness to serve.

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

Photo by Arthur Franklin on Unsplash

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.
