Glenn Beck: Meghan McCain is like, so totally progressive

GLENN: Meghan McCain, like, she is like so cool. First start with the progressive, the progressive line from Meghan McCain. Can you do that?

PAT: The progressive, yes.

GLENN: Here she is. She's a progressive. I don't know if you know that.

MEGHAN McCAIN: I consider myself a progressive Republican.

PAT: Do you want the whole thing is that enough?

GLENN: No, is there any more that needs to be said before that?

PAT: No, no.

STU: I vote for enough.

MEGHAN McCAIN: I consider myself a progressive Republican. I consider myself a progressive Republican. I consider myself a progressive Republican. I consider myself a progressive Republican.

GLENN: Okay, stop. There's the problem. That's the disease in the water: I consider myself a progressive Republican because I like progress. I like progress so much, I like to progress, I like to come like, for instance, Larry, in the studio I like, if I wouldn't have progressed, I'd still be sitting in the car because I like progress. So I got out of the car and then I closed the door and I took a couple of small steps and before I knew, I was in your studio. I like progress.

PAT: Isn't it interesting that none of these pseudo intellectuals on the left are calling her stupid? None of them are saying, she sounds like an idiot, she can't put together an intellectual thought, she hasn't had a deep thought in her life but they will say that all the time about Sarah Palin, all the time.

GLENN: But she's on Larry King!

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: For the full hour. All right. So now here she is on The View, whole thing.

MEGHAN McCAIN: We're saying that this is a new movement in the Republican Party and the first I knew, I did not want to go

GLENN: Stop. It's not a new movement in the Republican Party. Your daddy knows this. Maybe Daddy should sit you down and learn you a lesson or two on progressives. Daddy knows that his favorite president was the one who started the progressive party. Called the Bull Moose Party because Daddy couldn't take the seat from the Republican. So he had to start a third party. The progressive party. So it's not a new movement. It's the reason why your daddy's been a progressive for a long time. Your daddy is one of the reasons why our government is so out of control. How's that, Megan?

PAT: But I think here she's confusing, if I'm not mistaken, I think she's confusing the tea party with a movement within the Republican Party because I think she's referencing the tea party now.

STU: So she's saying the tea party is a new movement?

PAT: It's a new movement within the Republican Party and it's not.

GLENN: No, that was only the, that was only the Jefferson part of the movement. The tea party thing is really the Jefferson, Jefferson. A Republican. Not in the way we know them now. Before daddy's favorite president. Before there were progressives. A true Republican, which is for state control. Not a big federal government. I mean, how far away from the true Republican can you possibly be? If I said a Republican is somebody who is for the smallest possible government and does not like state wants state control, not federal control, name the Republicans that think that way.

STU: You mean currently?

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: That want the small I mean like obviously Jim DeMint type.

GLENN: Jim DeMint,

PAT: Michele Bachmann.

GLENN: Michele Bachmann, Ron Paul.

PAT: Jason Chaffetz.

GLENN: Jason Chaffetz.

PAT: Good, uh huh.

GLENN: There's four of us, we've come up with four.

STU: There's definitely congressmen that would fit into this. I mean, there's

GLENN: But it's to the like

PAT: John Culbertson, some of those guys.

GLENN: But it's not like it's an overwhelming number. Maybe we could come up with 50 of them. It's not an overwhelming number. I don't think so. I'm being generous. Because I'm in California and that's what people are in California. They're generous. You know, they're like progressive and yet for small government and fiscally conservative government. Small progressive, fiscally conservative, spend a lot kind of conservative Republican. That's what I am. All right. So she goes on.

MEGHAN McCAIN: I have very different, much ideological differences with Dad, but Congressman Tancredo went off

GLENN: Hang on, I have very much, like, ideological differences with them but I'm like super smart and nobody's going to point out that I'm stupid because I say things like I'm very much like ideological differences with them.

STU: But isn't this like, too, she's talking about the tea party movement which is generally described as a libertarian leaning movement.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: It's the movement that has de emphasized the social part of the platform of the Republican Party.

GLENN: Exactly right.

STU: So it makes no sense what she's talking about when she's talking about ideological difference and she described the only similarities that she has with them.

GLENN: Exactly right. The tea party movement is a movement that says I mean, because it could be independent, it can be it could be Republican or Democrat. It could be any of those things. What they're saying is be fiscally conservative. Stand for the Constitution, period. That's the main thrust. If you start getting into, "And we want to talk to you about gay marriage, and we want to talk to you about this," the tea party movement splits apart. Everybody is united on fiscally responsible. Stop spending us into oblivion, reduce the size of government and read the Constitution. That's what it's about.

STU: Yeah, I get that you could make the case, too, that there's not even consensus among national defense among tea party members. A lot of the Ron Paul people are a part of this.

GLENN: Exactly right.

STU: And they can't stand any of the war stuff. I mean, I think really it unites specifically on the Constitution and fiscal conservatism.

GLENN: So she's saying and this is great. I'm like, such a progressive Republican and I have nothing these tea party people, I have, like, much I disagree with. Exactly what? If you are a Republican, you're supposed to be for small government. If you're an American, you are supposed to be for the Constitution. If you're a Republican, you're supposed to be for fiscal responsibility. She says, "I'm a Republican, but I'm a progressive Republican." What does that even mean?

STU: I'm like a Jersey Shore Republican. I watch it and I want to make sure the situation doesn't control Snookie too much but that's really about it.

MEGHAN McCAIN: On TV and he was the first opening speaker and he said that people who could not even spell the word vote or say it in English couldn't commit a Socialist ideologue in the White House whose name is Barack Hussein Obama and then he went on to say that people at the convention should have to pass literacy tests in order to be able to vote in this country, which is the same thing that happened in the Fifties to prevent African Americans from voting. It's innate racism and I think young people are turned off by this movement.

PAT: Because of innate racism.

MEGHAN McCAIN: Revolutions start with young people, not with 65 year old people talking about literacy tests and people who can't say the word "Vote" in English.

GLENN: You hear this?

PAT: Revolutions start with young people.

GLENN: Yeah, it's weird how, may I could you do me a favor? Could you just, I would just like to play this and then if you would play the audio of Barack Hussein Obama and his, like, organization to, like, where they're saying, "Oh, I, like, have to talk to my parents because they're so stupid, I have to trick them into talking about politics." Isn't it interesting, mmm, mmm, mmm, Barack Hussein Obama. Isn't it interesting how they have targeted the colleges, how they have targeted our youth, how they have targeted the schools and yet here she is a progressive Republican that understands that revolutions start with the young. And listen to the disrespect. And not like somebody who, like, is 65 years old. They've already how far of a reach is it to say they've already lived their life. They were 25 once. They have their healthcare, okay? It's like our turn. I mean, what are they contributing to society? I mean, somebody's going to have to lose their healthcare. Are you going to have it like us, the 25 year olds? We're not the ones who screwed this up. We're the ones trying to fix it.

Tell me, tell me that that is a stretch. The arrogance of the 25, the disrespect for the 65. Like, we're revolutionaries. Tell me it's a stretch, gang. It's not.

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.
