Glenn Beck: This land is your land, this land is my land...or is it?

GLENN: All right. The reason why he's bringing this up is because last night we were talking about the land grab that's going on, and I don't know if you saw the map from the TV show last night, but is that stunning? Stunning how much land the United States of America owns out west. Stunning. Only 2% of Nevada is not federal land. That's crazy.

PAT: 2%?

GLENN: Wasn't it?

PAT: Was it 98% of Nevada?

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: 98%?

GLENN: Wasn't it? Stu, do you remember?

STU: I don't know.

GLENN: E mail Tiffany real quick.

STU: I will do that.

GLENN: I'm pretty sure it's 2%.

PAT: That seems high.

GLENN: Does it? 70 doesn't sound high?

PAT: No, 70 sounds very high. 60 sounds high in Utah. So 98? I mean, that's

GLENN: It's crazy what's going on.

PAT: It's criminal.

GLENN: And they're grabbing more land. Now, so we were talking about this because the president is doing a couple of executive orders, one on fishing, one on land, another 15 million acres of land. And something else, too. And we were talking about it and somebody said, you know, This Land is Your Land, this land is my land. Now, I had never I mean, I had heard people talk about, you know, Woody Guthrie and everything else. But it wasn't until that moment that I heard and I thought, oh, my gosh. This Land is Your Land, this land is my land. This land was made for you and me. In other words, we both own it. There is no owner. It's all of our land. There is no, there's no sign of trespass. Do you have the whole thing with all the lyrics, Sarah? How long is that? Because if you listen to the last let's see if we can listen to some more of it here in a second because there's, the final stanzas of this thing are clearly about social justice and no property rights.

STU: Really? I never it's one of those things you just never listen to.

GLENN: It was written in 1940. He was a communist.

STU: I did not know that.

GLENN: I didn't, either.

STU: It says here that he, the concert the guy's talking about says this is from USA Today, concert and folk singer Pete Seeger and Springsteen led the crowd in Woody Guthrie's This Land is Your Land.

PAT: Yeah. Was Arlo there? Was Arlo Guthrie there, too? Do you know?

STU: That sentence is the entire amount of knowledge I have about the concert.

GLENN: So play the rest of this. Here's Woody Guthrie.

(Music playing)

GLENN: Stop. The original line was God has made this land for you and me. God has made this land for you and me. Scratched out. This land was made for you and me. Took God out of it. This is where he's breaking it down.

PAT: Taking out the jams.

(Music playing)

GLENN: I mean, he's really got it going on.

PAT: Clearly rocks.

GLENN: Now, it's the next two, it's the next two verses. Keep going. It's the next two verses that you have to hear.

(Music playing)

GLENN: I didn't know it was this verse. It's the next two verses.

(Music playing)

GLENN: Oh, jeez. All right. Please be this verse.

(Music playing)

PAT: He's going to get laughed off American Idol.

GLENN: Stop. He's not going to do it. He's not going to do it. The last two stanzas, and I'm pulling this off my out of my head. I can't remember the beautiful, beautiful rhymes and the lyrics, but it's basically, I went walking and I saw a sign and it said no trespassing. The other side said nothing. That side of the sign was made for you and me. So in other words, you don't have a right to say no trespassing. You have it?

STU: Yeah. They went walking, I saw a sign there and on the sign it said no trespassing but on the other side it didn't say nothing. That side was made for you and me.

GLENN: Okay. Now read the last stanza.

STU: The next one is in the shadow of the steeple, I saw my people. By the relief office I seen my people. As they stood their hungry, I stood there asking, is this land made for you and me? And then the last one is, nobody living can ever stop me as I go walking that freedom highway. Nobody living can ever make me turn back. This land was made for you and me.

GLENN: He was at the relief office and he saw his people. And he wondered, is this land still made for you.

STU: And in the shadow of the steeple as well he was. Is that like the church wasn't doing something? They weren't doing anything, either?

PAT: Probably.

GLENN: Well, the shadow of the steeple he saw his people there by the relief office.

STU: Right. So at the relief office was helping.

GLENN: The government was helping but the church was not.

STU: Is that what he's saying?

PAT: Of course.

GLENN: I haven't smoked enough dope to know.

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: Look, the point is when we start to look at our own traditions, our own history, our own the things that we grew up thinking, I mean, who thought, this land was made for you and me. Who thought? And I know there's a ton of listeners. "I've known that since 19..." I know, I know, I know. I got it. Some of us weren't paying attention. And we are now. I'm sorry. Historians that have talked to me and said, Glenn, you drive a lot of us nuts. Why? Because you're just discovering all of this and some of us have been toiling on this for years and years and years. And I said, I know. I don't mean to, like it's not like I'm taking your work and going, look what I've discovered. I know I'm not the first to discover this. But I think I'm more like the average person. We didn't pay attention. Because you were on the fringe side of history. What these people were toiling, I feel bad for these professors. How did they live? How did they exist? Knowing what the real history of America was, knowing what really happened and then not being able to get it out in the mainstream. I've had an equal number of professors come to me and say, thank God. We have not been able to get this out in the mainstream; nobody would ever listen because we have all of this academic research but nobody would ever do it because it wasn't accepted. I said, keep spooning it, man. Keep teaching. Keep going. Because now Americans are hungry. We didn't know you know, it's have you ever gotten up in the middle of the night and you've gotten up and you were so powerfully thirsty, you wake up and you're like, "Need water." Have you ever done that? Where you wake up in the middle of the night and you just have to get out of bed and have a glass of water? Now, my wife would say, "I told you you should drink more water. You can't just drink soda. You've got to have water." So I'm not going to tell her that I get up in the middle of the night sometimes and just like... "I've got to have water or I may die." Because what she'll say is... (mumbling). I get it. Now America's really, really, really thirsty and it's like 2:00 in the morning and we're waking up and going... (gagging), "Man, I could use a glass of the truth right now." So keep pouring it, brothers. Keep pouring it. Because people will drink the truth now. They have never really been interested because they didn't need it. Now they need it. Become a truth seeker and a truth spreader because that's what man, that's what I need right now.

(OUT 9:45)

PAT: You know, I think the reason that so many of us don't understand, we haven't come we're a little late to the party on the Woody Guthrie songs and all that, it was just all presented as patriotic to us in school. I mean, how many of us sang This Land is Your Land in school and they were like, well, yeah, that's just super patriotic and just a great song. How many of us go to the Fourth of July fireworks display, we see the fireworks blasting, exploding in the air and we hear Born in the USA by Bruce Springsteen like, yeah, Born in the USA and then you get filled with patriotic pride and then you find out that Bruce Springsteen's Born in the USA is anti American.

GLENN: Born down in a dead man's town. The first kick I took is when I hit the ground. You end up like a dog that's been beat too much. Until you spend half your life just covering up. Born in the USA. I got in a little hometown jam and somebody put a rifle in my hands, sent me off to Vietnam: Go kill the yellow man. Born in the USA. Come back home to the refinery. Hiring man says, son, if it were up to me. I go down to see the VA man. He said, son, you don't understand. Born in the USA. I have a buddy at Khe Sahn inviting off the Vietcong. They're still there; he's all gone. He had a little girl in Saigon. I got a picture of him in her arms. Down in the shadow of the penitentiary, out by the gas fires of the refinery, I'm ten years down the road, nowhere to run. Ain't got nowhere to go. I'm a long gone daddy in the USA. Born in the USA. I'm a cool rocking daddy in the USA. Born in the USA. Hmmm.

PAT: Yeah!

GLENN: Where are the fireworks?

PAT: Yeah, yeah. That's what it's all about. That's what America's about according to Bruce Springsteen.

GLENN: See, here's the thing that I think people don't understand yet. I think you do. That it is time for us to wake. People who have come from the Soviet bloc or Cuba, they are all saying, how do you guys not hear this? How are you not seeing this? Well, because we don't ever expect it. We've never what? Slowly, ever so slowly they've changed the meaning, changed the words, changed the images, changed the history. Slowly, ever so slowly. Progress. Step by step. Progressive. And because it wasn't done in revolution but instead over a 100 year evolution, we've gone numb. And everything is an empty tradition. Everything is a everything just meaningless. It's like I said stop with the flag lapel pin and stop with all of that stuff. That is not a question of your loyalty. What does the flag even mean? As we know, it can mean something radically different from you than Jeremiah Wright. We have to be based in more than just images, words, and names. Values and principles. More in a second.


 

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.
