Glenn Beck: Restoring Honor



Restoring Honor Rally 8-28


On August 28, 2010 come be a part of history by joining Glenn at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial for the Restoring Honor Rally. This is a non-political fundraiser for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.

GLENN: We have talked about so many things in the last few years, and as I, as I try to figure out a way out, because people come and listen to this program for laughs, for perspective, for my opinion on things, what I believe is the truth, but they also have been listening for some sort of an answer, and I will tell you that I've never considered myself an answer man. As a dad I have been looking for answers as well. I told you last year that the answer would come from the people, and I think we saw that last week. And that's not a comment on Ron on Scott Brown. This is a comment on people waking up and standing up and saying, you're pushing me too far. Eight months ago we didn't even well, many people didn't even have hope. We never stop it. What's happening to us?

Now people are aware of what's happening to us. More and more people are waking up every day and more people are standing up. Question with boldness, hold to the truth, and speak without fear. That has been my answer.

I told you at the, around Thanksgiving that I was changing the show because I had been thinking about what is the answer. What is the answer? And I announced something when I went down to Florida, I announced to you that I was coming to you with a plan. I will tell you, I'm going to shoot real straight with you. I was on the air I'm sorry, I was on the stage and there were 30,000 people there and as I said it and I said this phrase: Two can play at that game. And I broke out in a cold sweat. I knew the direction that I was supposed to go in but I believe that I was 2 to 5% off course. And I broke out in a cold sweat and I walked off stage and I said to one of my guys, I said, this is the wrong direction, I don't know. And he looked at me and said, Glenn, have you not been talking about this for weeks and weeks and weeks? And I said, yes, but it's the wrong direction and I don't know, I don't know why. Well, I figured it out. Because two cannot play that game. That makes us them. We must play another game, one that isn't a game. It is the original way this country was set up. We must do two things. And really it's just this one. Remember, remember who we are. If we remember who we are, where we came from, why we came here, who let us, who wrote those documents, why did they write them, if we remember the mistakes we've made, and we made a lot, but I ain't going on a European apology tour for it. Every country has made mistakes, some bigger than others. I think in the balance we've been pretty good. But if we remember our mistakes, we'll be able to fix them. So remember.

And what happens when we remember? Well, if we remember, then we have to choose. And here comes the second part. Then we have to choose. Are we going to be part of the solution or part of the problem? And really honestly the problem is two can play at that game. The solution is to just always tell the truth. I announced on that same stage that I was going to be holding an event, and I didn't tell you much about it. On August 28th, this coming August 28th, I told you it would be at the mall in Washington. A lot of people are going to think that this is a tea party. It is not. I hope it will be something much, much deeper than a tea party. I believe what we are creating is going to be something that will be one for the history books. There is not going to be one word of politics from the stage, not one. Because the way to fix Washington is not through politics but through each of us as individuals. Because when we fix ourselves and we are united on the principle of honor and honesty and integrity, they will fear us like they've never feared us before. Why can somebody go to Washington that you think is so strong and then all of a sudden turn? All of a sudden they become part of the problem? Well, I think it's because they've lost their honor. They may have lost their honor before they even got there. And when they lost that honor, when they cheated on their wife or they embezzled or they took this deal or they compromised here, whatever it is, that's when they become a tool. That's why I ask you to join me at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on 8/28 in a program called Restoring Honor. The feet of Abraham Lincoln. I'm reading a book right now called Giants. It's fantastic. It's the things that Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln had in common. Amazing men. But you don't have to solve Washington. The tea parties have the backdrop of the capitol. The capitol could go into a giant sinkhole as far as I'm concerned. Doesn't matter to me. You are not going to be able to go in there and fix that, unless you start at the other end of the mall and you start by looking and reflecting at Abraham Lincoln. And then you look and reflect. That's what the reflecting pool means. Reflect. You look one way and you are looking at Abraham Lincoln and you can reflect on him. You look the other way and you see the Washington Monument and everything that Washington stood for and you reflect on him. Once you do that and then make your choice, two can play that game. Or I'm going to be like Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. When you do that, you'll fix the country. I'm convinced of it. Education, reflection and higher choices. I can't tell you who or what is going to be on the program at this point for a myriad of reasons. But just know we want to be there. It is going to be amazing.

Now, here's the problem and here's where I need your help. Well, I tell you what, I have to take a break. Let me tell you this. If you are planning on going, I had two people at the Bill O'Reilly event this weekend come up to me and say, Glenn, I can't get a hotel for your 8/28 thing. We called, like, three hotels. They're already sold out. People are coming to this, and I recommend that if you even think you want to go, book now. Plan on being there. We did it, we intentionally didn't do it on 9/12 for a couple of reasons. One, 9/12 is on Sunday. I don't do anything on Sunday. The second reason is I wanted your I wanted you to be able to bring your kids. So this is the, I think the last week before the August holiday is over, and I want you to be there, and I want you to bring your family. And I want you to bring your friends. And I want you to help me get the word out. Restoring honor. 8/28, August 28th. Please mark it down on your calendar. Make plans to join me now. I'll tell you when I need your help in just a second.

(OUT 11:20)

GLENN: All right. So now when I had this idea about restoring honor, 8/28, and you can read all about it at GlennBeck.com, when I had this idea, we started running some numbers and it looks like it could be in, you know, like $2 million to produce this thing. I hope to God not but that's what they said. And I was faced with a choice: Not do it, go to sponsors, you know, go to say, hey, Goldline, you want to cough up a couple of million dollars, and it would be the Goldline restoring honor thing. And I thought, no, that's not. Or come to you.

Here's the deal I've made. I'm going to come to you and for anything that we don't raise and we spend, I'll cover the rest. It cost $2 million? We raise a million dollars, I'll cover the rest. But I also had another problem because I am so I mean, I am such a watchdog thing. I don't want to ask you for money. I don't want any money even coming close to me. Because I don't even want the appearance of, you know, oh, Glenn Beck's making money off this, Glenn Beck's getting rich off this, Glenn Beck's, I don't even want the money coming close to me. I want nothing to do with it. So I'm trying to think who can we, who can we go to that you would trust and that I trust. We can go to Cooper what is it, Price Cooper House Waterhouse, whatever that is, you know, whatever.

PAT: Are those the guys that do the Oscars?

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Oh, you know they're credible.

GLENN: Yeah, they're credible. So I would be going there, but then I would be saying their name over the next year and giving them all of this advertisement, and I don't really care to advertise them. And I also think that we might raise more than whatever it is we need. What happens to the money then? That's why I went to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. These guys, so you know, they are a 501(c)(3). They are a charity. They have just been awarded their fourth consecutive four star rating for financial efficiency by a charity watchdog group, The Charity Navigator. So they are totally on the up and up. They are really, really good. There is I mean, when I think of honor, honestly I thought of George Washington first and maybe Abraham Lincoln, Ronald Reagan. I was thinking who really has shown honor to me in my head? But every when I thought of George Washington, obviously I thought of him because of what he did during the war. He was an honorable man. When I think of honor today, I think of warriors. When you think of honor today, I think I mean, when I'm making this decision, we're starting the trials on the Navy SEALs and everything else and I'm just getting more and more wound up.

So what I want to do is I'm asking you to go to the specialops.org and you will see Glenn Beck Restoring Honor rally and you can make a contribution there in any amount. It's all tax deductible. Anything that we raise over the cost of the event will stay with them.

Let me tell you this. They are also going to be very motivated to make sure that we're not spending money frivolously. I am because I don't want you to think that we've used your money frivolously. I mean, we want to put on an amazing historic event. And believe me, we will. But I want to do it for the cheapest amount we can. They're motivated as well as I am to do it for the cheapest because anything that we raise over that amount, if we do, goes to this charity. And it is a great, great charity. These are the people that grant scholarships for college, financial aid, educational counseling to all of the kids of special operations personnel that are killed, and these guys are the heroes among us. So here's what I need you to do. If you got a buck, if you got five bucks, you got ten bucks, if you believe in, you believe in the message of, we have a deficit in this country of honor and integrity. We have a deficit in this country just telling the truth, just being decent people, just, didn't you take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States? To protect it from enemies foreign and domestic? What are you thinking? What are you doing? The deficit we have is people who will actually engage in their thinking of, it's not me, it's not my career. It's my children's future. It is the freedom of all mankind. If America fails, there's no place else on planet Earth for oppressed people to run to. None! This is it! And if it fails, it will have failed because we were not honorable people. Only honorable, decent people can be free.

I ask you to donate and help put this on. This will truly be the people's grassroots rally. You can donate whatever it is you want. You can join us. If you can't donate a dime, that's fine. But if you can, go to specialops.org. Specialops.org. By the way, I just want to say this again clearly. All proceeds above the actual cost of, you know, putting this thing on go to this charity.

We also are going, at GlennBeck.com if you want something in return, all proceeds above the actual cost of making the stuff, from the sale of 8/28 merchandise will also go to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. So we are selling products that you can see now at GlennBeck.com including Bill O'Reilly, I don't even know if this is up there. I brainstormed with him a little bit on Saturday and we have Restoring Honor Starts Here doormats. It all goes to this, to the event. Anything above and beyond that goes right to the special warriors.

When Biden was given the keys to the Oval Office in January 2021, gas was $2.50 a gallon and the inflation rate was 1.4%. Today gas is at $3.32 a gallon and the inflation rate is at 7% ... and STILL RISING. These are just 12 months of numbers, but we’re clearly in a worrying decline. While the economy has opened up more post-COVID, it’s not just getting worse — we’re going IN REVERSE.

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard (and the very top of his studio ceiling) to explain what’s happening to inflation and why it’s so hard for your family to afford basic goods and groceries. It’s not “corporate greed,” as Democrats have been telling you. The Biden administration wants to continue to spend trillions of dollars to “reinvent capitalism,” but that’s in addition to the trillions that are being pumped out IN THE SHADOWS.

Glenn exposes what the Fed has been doing behind closed doors and shows us the tidal wave that’s about to hit. He’s looked at the numbers, and they're frightening. Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” gives advice to Americans who want to protect their checking and savings accounts before it’s too late.

The stock markets have taken a nosedive in the biggest downtrend since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. But that's nothing compared to what's coming thanks to our government's embrace of modern monetary theory, warned BlazeTV's Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It really is important that you understand what's happening to us," Glenn stated. "Modern monetary theory is truly the [fuel] ... for the great reset. It is the idea that we can print as much money and spend as much money as we want," he explained.

"Then the next step is to release the Federal Reserve digital currency and make payments by other currencies [including cryptocurrencies] illegal," he continued. "And you're seeing it happen now in real time. Why would they do this? Because you cannot print this kind of money without having absolute control over how it is spent."

Glenn broke down the steps powerful political organizations — like the Federal Reserve — will take to end currency competition and enact a Federal digital dollar, which will allow for the government to have complete control over how we spend our money.

"This is what's coming. This is coming quickly, and events will make it move faster. For instance, why is Joe Biden basically giving Ukraine to Russia? He's giving it to them. He he knows Russia's not afraid of him. Putin knows that [Biden] is not going to do anything ... neither is NATO. They're not going to do anything," Glenn said.

"It's because war resets everything. War is the best great resetter. Changes boundaries. It changes borders. It changes laws. It changes societies. It changes currencies. It changes everything. And in the end you just want the war to stop. And so you you accept whatever it is the terms are that you're going to have to live under now. We're in very, very dangerous times. The only way to survive this is to know why they are dangerous times."

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.
