Glenn Beck: Brett Baier grills Obama on healthcare




Video: Obama's Interview with FNC's Bret Baier

GLENN: Last night Bret Baier said, if this is so important, I mean, why do you have to bribe people and arm twist? The answer, I think, spoke volumes.

BAIER: You know, we asked our viewers to e-mail in suggested questions. More than 18,000 people took time to e-mail us questions and these are regular people from all over the country. Lee Johnson from Spring Valley, California: If the bill is so good for all of us, why all the intimidation, arm twisting, seedy deals, and parliamentary trickery necessary to pass a bill when you have an overwhelming majority in both houses and the presidency? Sandy Moody in Chesterfield, Missouri: If the healthcare bill is so wonderful, why do you have to bribe Congress to pass it?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Bret, I get 30,000 letters or e-mails a day.

BAIER: I know you do.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: And I could read the exact same --

BAIER: But these are real people. It's not just Washington punditry.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Listen. I've got exactly the same e-mails that I could show you that talk about why haven't we done something to make sure that I, a small business person, am getting as good of a deal as members of Congress are getting and don't have my insurance rates jacked up 40%. Why is it --

GLENN: Stop it. Stop it. Do you notice what he's done here? He didn't say, what bribery?

PAT: No.

GLENN: He didn't say what arm twisting? This is Saul Alinsky. Now, when it comes to process, I don't care about process, this process I do because it speaks volumes about us and volumes about what's happening in Washington. When we say, oh, well, the process doesn't matter, yes, it does! You can judge a tree by its fruit and the fruit is bribery and corruption, so you know if it's a good tree or a bad tree.

Now, with this being said, I implore you to reach out to your friends and make sure your message is not about politics. I said to you before that our country, really the world as we know it, okay, the economy, global economy as we know it is sinking. It is the Titanic and it is going to go down. I hope I'm wrong, but the bailout looks like it has failed in Greece. That was the story from Bloomberg this morning. There's another story out today that Spain is in real trouble and the headline was: As Goes Spain, So Goes the World. . I don't know if it's going to be Spain or Greece or California or what it's going to be, but at some point the dominoes are going to fall and we are all tied together to stop nuclear war. That's why this -- that's why this is so bad, because people who are far smarter than you and me, without us knowing about it, tied the global economies together because that's the only way to stop a world war. They did it in the 1940's and 50's and 60's and they announced it in Tragedy and Hope, which is a book from, I think, 1962. Carroll Quigley, the guy, he was a scholar at Harvard and George Washington university. He's the guy responsible for getting Bill Clinton in as a Rhodes Scholar. He's been -- he was an advisor for almost every President known to man and he said, I was part of it that tied it together. And the tragedy was war. The hope was we're not going to have a global war anymore. Why? Because we've tied all of our economies together so people know if there is a global war, it will sink the entire world, the entire global economy will collapse. So, it doesn't matter where it starts. It doesn't matter who caused it. What matters is what then? It doesn't matter about healthcare. I mean, it does because I believe, as I have told you before, healthcare -- this isn't about the healthcare issue. It never has been. It is about control and power. It is about a machine that they will turn on. It is a cage.

There is a story today in the paper about moody's. It's been floating around -- it was on the front page of the New York Times yesterday or the day before. Even I didn't catch this one line. One of my researchers said, Glenn, how come you haven't mentioned this? And I said read it to me again. What? Moody's is the ratings service. Now, remember, you've got to take moody's with a grain of salt because it's a quasi Government organization, but moody's is the one that rates credit. So, in other words, the banking credit, country wide's credit, everybody. The ratings service to say who's got good credit, who doesn't. The same kind of service that got us into this mess in the first place because they said, Oh, yeah, these CEO's, they're good. So, they're not. Do you remember when the crash first started to happen and they were, like, why were these things rated so highly? Well, because people were in bed with each other. The banks were in bed with the rating service. So, when they would come out and evaluate the value of your house, the bank put pressure on them, keep that up, keep it high, et cetera, et cetera. Well, that's what's happened with moody's now. The pressure is on to keep the American credit rating high because we can't have our credit downgraded. Why? How does this affect you? Because if they downgrade our credit, it works just like your credit card. If you have bad credit, your interest rates go up. If the we have bad credit, our interest rates on our debt will go so high, it will consume everything. You won't be able to have healthcare. You won't be able to have roads. You won't be able to have strong defense because we have to pay the interest rate. What happened when everybody's rate on an adjustable mortgage went up? People lost their house. That's what is in -- on our horizon for our country now, but here's the line that was in that article and I've been warning against these two things for how many years? One, we will lose our credit rating if we don't turn around; Two, there is trouble on the horizon. Moody's, in the same article, we -- the United States has made too many critical moves in the last year. They're making things worse. The situation is worse, not just because of the moves but because the worst is not behind us. It's still ahead of us, and there is a real substantial risk of the United States losing its credit rating. First fact. The second one I saw today. Because the world is so unstable, what is ahead may loosen the bonds of society.

Now, what the heck does that even mean? It will loosen the bonds of societal cohesion. What that means is civil unrest. You are seeing it already in Europe. Jerry Brown yesterday said, Now it's the union's turn to fight, so we don't have to. There is going to be societal unrest, maybe, hopefully, God help us, not in America, because if there is societal unrest at this point, we are not prepared as a people. We are going to head for a French revolution, not an American revolution. That one ended in the guillotines. That one ended horribly, because the people had a misunderstanding of what they were fighting for and God did not play the role. It was a misinterpreted God. We are not ready, do not -- there is a story today out of Alaska from a group that says, Hey, I know, you know, we've got a long way to go, but arms are still on the table. An armed assault or an armed revolution is still on the table. It must be taken off the table. It must be taken off the table or things will end like the French revolution, which ended in Napoleon.

So, what I'm coming to you today with is you're not -- I don't think -- I'm not and I just told my staff today, I don't care about ratings. I don't care about money. I've got to keep the show on the air so we all are employed, but I have been saying for a long time there are many things that I believe that I shall never say but I shall never say the things that I do not believe. I am telling you today something that I have not said before but I have believed.

Time runs short. Now is the time that you shore yourself up and you stand for peace. Faith, hope, and charity. You must be the guardian of your own freedom. You must be the guardian of your own family. You must -- if you have been standing on the sidelines in any way, shape, or form, if you've been listening every day and saying, Okay, well, I -- you must get off of the sidelines and you must stand peacefully, even if it is just in your own home. You must begin to think the unthinkable. You must think out of the box. You must, you must look -- prepare for the worst and hope for the best. If you are listening to the sound of my voice today, you are listening for a reason. You are here for a reason, and there's an article today in the paper about this is -- what's about to happen to us is equivalent to Pearl Harbor. It is, but it's not the event of healthcare that Pearl Harbor -- it wasn't just December 7th. It is the years after that changed the world. Be prepared to be a peacemaker.

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.
