GLENN: I am proud to announce that the NAACP is giving Van Jones an award. Apparently the most is this true? The most misunderstood man award. I'm trying to help me out here. I'm trying to figure out exactly where he's misunderstood. Is he misunderstood because he's a 9/11 Truther? Is he misunderstood because he's a self avowed communist? Is he misunderstood because he is a guy who defended Mumia Abu Jamal, the cop killer? Let's see. Is he understood because he wants a revolution? I'm trying to figure out how he's misunderstood. How is he misunderstood? He's now going to high schools. He's also going to be teaching at Princeton. He's giving a lecture at Columbia, whew, and he's also going to be speaking with Senator Gillibrand from New York, in New York City where the World Trade Centers came down, interesting enough. I don't know if she knows that. I'd like to hear her viewpoint on the truth of 9/11. We have a letter out to Senator Gillibrand to find out, where does she stand on that? Where does she stand on Marx? Because we know where, we know where Van Jones stands on Marx.

Now, we also have an interesting tie here. It's fascinating to me that, what was it, Stu, Pat, three weeks ago that the NAACP came out and said Martin Luther King was a radical socialist?

STU: Yeah, it was a few weeks ago.

GLENN: Okay. Can we, can we get the actual words from the head of the NAACP where they said if people knew who Martin Luther King was, we wouldn't revere him like we do today. If we would have, if we would have known these things in the past, maybe there wouldn't be a Martin Luther King day?

PAT: Yeah, you want to have that?

GLENN: Do you have that?

STU: We'd love it.

GLENN: Yeah, go ahead.

PAT: Because if you'd like it, I mean, I'm here to please.

STU: That would be fantastic.

BOND: We don't remember the king who was the critic of capitalism who said to Charles Fager when they were in jail together in Selma in 1965 that he thought a modified form of socialism would be the best system for the United States. We don't remember the Martin Luther King who talked ceaselessly about taking care of the masses and not just dealing with the people at the top of the ladder. So we've kind of anesthetized him. We've made him into a different kind of person than he actually was in life, and it may be that that's one reason he's so celebrated today because we celebrate a different kind of man than really existed. But he was a bit more radical. Not terribly, terribly radical but a bit more radical than we make him out to be today.

PAT: Sure.

GLENN: Okay. So he was just a, he was a radical socialist but not terribly, terribly radical. Just a radical socialist. And we may not celebrate him if we but we're celebrating a different man than really existed. Okay, well, what does that tell you about history?

So now a few weeks ago he comes out and he says this about Martin Luther King. Now we have a, not a terribly, terribly radical socialist. We have a radical communist that is the most misunderstood man. Now, are we celebrating Van Jones or the a different man than Van Jones really is? This guy has never left the public sphere. Why? Because the president never came out against him. He never came out against him. He just went into the shadows. It didn't didn't the NAACP just have Jeremiah Wright speak as well? How is the NAACP yeah, they did. Who was it that just gave remember Jeremiah Wright, it was about six months ago, Jeremiah Wright was given an award. I think it was the NAACP. Can you look that up? Recently. And I remember thinking, Jeremiah Wright, what? How is that happening? Do you have it, Stu?

STU: Yeah, just want to I don't know the, I don't know the source here. Okay, let's see.

GLENN: No, you have it. I remember seeing it on TV. I remember. Just tell me what the organization was.

STU: Maryland chapter of NAACP drawing criticism for selecting Obama's former pastor to speak at an awards dinner.

GLENN: Yeah, that's what it was. And remember they were a lot of the people from the administration, if I'm not mistaken, a lot of people from the administration were in there going, "Hey, he's a great guy, he's a great guy!" Well, now wait a minute. We either say it's okay to believe what Jeremiah Wright and Van Jones believe as a nation, we either embrace it or we don't. But if the NAACP is embracing things that America doesn't embrace, how can we call the NAACP a mainstream organization? I mean, I think that's a fair question, isn't it? If they're embracing radical Marxism through Van Jones not only Marxism, communism if they are embracing a guy and saying he's misunderstood and he is embracing Mumia Abu Jamal, a cop killer, if they are embracing a guy who says there should be a radical youth uprising, a revolution, if they're embracing a guy who says the chickens are coming home to roost and GD, America, and that America has been responsible for intentionally killing black people as a government, that America is an evil place and that, Jeremiah Wright, that Marx is right, that capitalism is bad, well, what does that make the NAACP? Does that make them a mainstream organization?

STU: As mainstream as, you know, Sean Penn? You know, it sounds

GLENN: Sean Penn's not mainstream.

STU: I know. That's what I'm saying.

GLENN: Exactly right.

STU: It seems like it's sore of a view that's

GLENN: You can be Danny Glover.

STU: Right. It's that sort

GLENN: You can be Michael Moore.

STU: Right. It's that strain of thought. It doesn't seem though I don't know if their position their position is that he's misunderstood and that he was smeared and attacked by people like you.

GLENN: The NAACP came to Fox News. The only correction that I have had to issue is for the NAACP and it was this: That I said he was a felon. He was not a felon. He went to jail. He was arrested.

STU: Right.

GLENN: Okay? He was not a felon. That is the only correction that I have had to make in the last year because somebody came. You know, we put the phone in. The phone came really from a discussion with the White House, NAACP was happening around the same time. We said, well, what are the complaints? What did we say? One, in one year, one thing and that was that I said that he was a felon. He wasn't.

STU: And again you didn't say that all the time. You had said that on one occasion and the other times you said it correctly. But it's important to correct things like that.

GLENN: Absolutely, and I have no problem doing that. I said if I'm wrong, I have no problem correcting it. But that was the how was he smeared? How was he smeared? And by saying this, are they not smearing me or anybody else? I mean, I'm the guy who's known for Van Jones. So is the NAACP smearing me? Because I corrected the only mistake that I made.

STU: Yeah. I mean, like there's an article here about the it's the NAACP image award, which is like essentially their highest honor as far as I understand it. And this is an article from CNN about it. Now, CNN not necessarily known as a rightwing organization, also known as an organization that's currently in competition with you. But they go through and list all the evidence that we talked about on the air as if it's fact. So I mean, if they want a correction from us, there's a vicious smear campaign going on from CNN on Van Jones.

GLENN: What else do they have on, from CNN?

STU: They talk about the 9/11 Truther stuff, they talk about the East Bay Express article talking about how he said he was a communist, you know, and then it talks about, well, Van Jones says, quote, if I have offended anyone with the statements I've made in the past, I apologize. Well, I don't know. That's great.

GLENN: You are not you didn't offend me. You didn't offend me. I don't care. I don't care. Are you a communist? You've said yes. Have you changed? That's like Barack Obama. He was a Marxist. He's claimed he was a Marxist. He hung out with Marxists. He's still hanging out with Marxists. But do you notice he never says, "I'm not a Marxist and here's why." He's never said, "yes, I was a Marxist when I was a radical when I was a kid, but I changed, I figured it out, here's where my moment came." Never. Never. He's never defended capitalism. He's never said, "Look, I'm a strong capitalist, I believe in the free market system because I was a Marxist when I was a kid, we all were doing stupid things not all of us, well, some of us didn't even go to college. But, you know, when we were college age, you do stupid things, you try different things out. That's the way you grow. You challenge yourself. Well, I fell into Marxism. Boy was I stupid. Here's why." Never. Never. "Hey, I hired a communist, boy, was I stupid, here's why." Never. "I hired a revolutionary, I hired people that don't believe in the free market system. I put as my manufacturing czar a guy who says the free market system is dead! Boy was I stupid and here's why." No. No.

We need to get away from revolutionaries because they're mainstreaming revolutionaries. That's what's happening here. We're mainstreaming Karl Marx. By Van Jones speaking at your kids' high school, they're mainstreaming it. "See, look, you can be a Marxist revolutionary, you can be a communist and you can be a great guy." Look at how many awards he's getting.

Where is your award for standing up against Van Jones? Where is your award for standing up for freedom and democracy? Where is it? No, no, no. No, they will point to how hateful those groups are that would give anything like that. He's teaching now, he's going to be teaching at Princeton. Princeton I respect because they have tenured professors that are conservatives. They're at least trying. I have no problem with you putting Peter Singer on campus as long as you have somebody stand up against Peter Singer with the same kind of clout and power on campus. How about Van Jones? Hey, Princeton, you going to have him teach classes? Hire me. I want the counterpoint. Wouldn't do it. Wouldn't do it. Van Jones would have a class and no one would throw a chair at him. I would have a class and they would throw chairs at me. Well, they would only throw chairs at me because I would also be grading their papers. M is for Marxist.

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.

Kim Iversen, journalist, YouTuber, and host of "The Kim Iversen Show," reacted to Glenn Beck's appearance last week on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" by conceding that, while the subject of Beck's new book, "The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism" might at first sound "a little bit loony," closer analysis confirms "this isn't such a crazy conspiracy theory after all."

"Glenn Beck was on Tucker Carlson's show last week touting what has been called a right-wing conspiracy theory and discussing his new book, 'The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism'," began Iverson on The Hill's "Rising."

"Well, maybe that all sounds a little bit loony — and believe me, I do think Glenn Beck tends to be a loon," she quipped. "But, maybe this isn't such a crazy conspiracy theory after all. And after seeing everything we've seen with the governments enacting all sorts of authoritarian controls and many other conspiracy theories coming true, maybe there's something to be concerned about. So, what is the Great Reset? The name even sounds conspiratorial, but believe it or not, it's a real thing."

Iverson went on to explain exactly who is behind the Great Reset, what their agenda entails, how they are using the COVID-19 pandemic to "to rebuild society in a way the global elites see best fit."

"You'll own nothing and you will be happy: That's what they're saying," Iverson explained. "And with inflation sky high and no signs of it slowing down, they might be right. We are on our way to becoming a nation of renters, but don't worry it's nothing to fear ... don't worry, everything is being done under the premise that this is all ... being done for our own good, the benefit of a collective society, and we will be happy," she added sarcastically.

Iverson concluded by asking, "Who thinks it's a good idea that a bunch of corporate millionaire and billionaires and world leaders are getting together and coming up with what's best for we the little people? I mean, who thinks that that's a really good idea? And who thinks that they are going to be doing it for our benefit? But, of course they're going to frame it like 'Oh, this is good for you. You're going to rent. You'll own nothing and you'll be happy. Don't worry about it' ... When you look at the actual list of partners with the World Economic Forum, they control everything. They control media. They control health. They control business. They control everything, and so then it does become, how do we people fight against that?"

President Joe Biden just had the worst-rated week in the entire first year of his presidency, but his latest poll numbers are the icing on the cake, Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck on the radio program.

Given that polls aren’t always correct, O’Reilly explained another way to prove that Biden's first year may be worse than any other president's before him: It’s impossible to name one single contribution Biden has made to move America forward.

"Biden: There isn't anything you can point to. Not one thing ... that he's done to improve the nation. That's the test. You just step back, take emotion out of it, politics out of it, and say, give me one thing that Joe Biden has done to improve the country. Just one. And you can't do it," O'Reilly said. "And if there is, I want your listeners to contact me at BillO'Reilly.com."
