Video: Obama talking to students...

GLENN: Could we play now — again this is from a speech this weekend and I want you to listen to what he says and ask yourself why is Playstation and XBOX in this? It's a diversion. Listen to this, what the president said.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Meanwhile you are coming of age in a 24/7 media environment that bombards us with all kinds of content and exposes us to all kinds of arguments, some of which don't always rank that high on the truth meter. With iPods and iPads and XBOX's and PlayStations, none of which I know how to work, information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation.

PAT: Emancipation?

STU: Emancipated from your pants.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: It's putting new pressure on our country and on our democracy.

PAT: We don't want pressure put on our democracy by those XBOX's.

GLENN: Okay, now listen to this, listen to a couple of things and then listen to it again with new ears. Cass Sunstein is one of Barack Obama's close confidantes. He is I believe the most dangerous man in America. Nobody sees him coming. He is the head now of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, information and regulatory affairs. He oversees the policies relating to privacy, information quality, and statistical programs. Know that our government, our DOJ under Holdren right now or Holder, is arguing in the courts that you have no reasonable right of expectation of privacy in your e mail, privacy of location if you have a cellphone because they can triangulate you. Without a warrant they want to be able to read your e mail. Without a warrant. This is the same group of people that today or over the weekend Holdren came out and said — I'm sorry, Holder came out and said that he wants the Miranda rights also to go away for, you know, if you are involved in terrorism. Excuse me? If you are an American citizen? I don't think so. So Cass Sunstein overseeing policies relating to privacy and information. He said that the government needs to employ teams of covert agents and pseudo — I'm quoting — independent advocates to cognitively infiltrate online groups and websites as well as other activist groups which advocate views that Sunstein deems, quote, as false conspiracy theories about the government, end quote. He said that they should all be discredited, even though some of these conspiracy theories will be right. This would be — you ready for this? Designed to increase the citizens' faith in government officials and undermine the credibility of conspiracists. The paper — let's see — also advocates that the government's stealth infiltration should be accompanied by sending covert agents into, quote, chat rooms, online social networks or even real space groups. He also proposes that the government make secret payments to so called independent credible voices to bolster the government's messaging, on the ground that those who don't believe the government's sources will be more inclined to listen to those who appear to be independent, while secretly acting on behalf of our government.

This guy's actually got a job with the president! This is his job now!

This program would target those advocating false, quote, conspiracy theories which they define to mean an attempt to explain an event or practice by reference to the machinations of powerful people who have managed to conceal their role. Sunstein's 2008 paper was flagged, blah, blah blah, blah blah.

So he says there are five steps: One, ban all conspiracy theories, even those that turn out to be correct. Ban them. Two, tax conspiracy theories. I would be a conspiracy theorist according to Cass Sunstein. I'm also — this is his language — also anti government. If you disagree with the policies of this administration, that doesn't mean you disagree with the president or his policies. Cass Sunstein wants it to be known that you are anti government. Watch the coverage on television. Fox does not call the tea party members anti government. Every other network does. Anti government tea parties. Where did that come from? Cass Sunstein.

Third proposal: Government engage in counterspeech.

Four: Government hires neutral people, quote/unquote, for counterspeech.

Five: Government might engage in informal communication with conspiracy theorists. The main policy recommendation, cognitive infiltration of conspiracy theories. I find it interesting this weekend on Twitter the big thing was somebody who calls themselves Beck girl is using the N word left and right and all of a sudden all the people on the left are saying, look at Glenn Beck won't even speak out against this person.

First of all, I'm not playing your game. Second of all, I'm not responsible for my listeners and what — there are crazy people in every audience, in every walk of life. There are crazy people that are fans of Obama. Most importantly, of course I don't agree with that. So I'm not even going to address it. But most importantly here is gosh, that sounds like Cass Sunstein. Doesn't it? Infiltrate, online, pose and discredit. Gosh, that sounds like Cass Sunstein. Cass Sunstein, free press, free press also trying to shut down the Internet. Not to shut it down, not to turn it off but to shape, to make sure. As Mark Lloyd who's now at the FCC said that important Democratic revolution couldn't have happened if they hadn't have controlled the press. The Venezuelan important Democratic revolution. That's interesting, isn't it?

Oh, by the way, Bob Bennett, according to the Washington Post, Bob Bennett, he didn't just lose. That wasn't a loss this weekend for Bob Bennett. According to the Washington Post, how did they describe it, Pat?

PAT: I don't have the story right in front of me. I'm trying to think. Oh, a nonviolent coup.

GLENN: A nonviolent coup. The Democratic process is now a nonviolent coup. Do you see what's happening? And by the way, let me give you a quote out of Rules For Radicals by Saul Alinsky. I want you to understand who you are dealing with. I want you to understand who these people hold up. Rules For Radicals. Remember, the ends justify the means. There is no wrong. You can do whatever you want. You do whatever's necessary. You get the job done. Rules For Radicals.

May I quote: Lest we forget, at least an over the shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical, from all of our legends mythology and history, the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom. That radical was Lucifer, end quote. Saul Alinsky. I'm sorry. We're looking to the devil. We're looking to Lucifer as an example of at least he got his! We're looking and using as an example something that now under the Obama administration the Department of Education is telling students to read this book. In it Saul Alinsky holds out as an example of, hey, let's not forget the first radical was Lucifer! Wow.

I said it about an hour ago. I've been reading a lot over and over and over again the Moses story. There's a lot to be learned there. The take away today for me is the simple step that Moses was told to do, put a snake on a stick and said, you want to live? Just look at the snake. People didn't do it for a myriad of reasons, one of which it was just too easy. What was the lesson? Please, dear God, don't dismiss it. The lesson was look to God to live. We are entering unbelievable times. Look to God to live.

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?"

Iversen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to discuss what The Great Reset is and how YOU can help stop it. Watch the video clip from "The Glenn Beck Program" below:

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."
