GLENN: President Obama said that we should all read the Huffington Post, and I have. And I continue to do so and I thank the president for giving me that advice today because I saw this story on the Huffington Post, and I want to read it to you verbatim because I think it's a very important story. Glenn Beck, historian for a troubled America. The Reverend Jerry Falwell's Liberty University recently conferred upon Glenn Beck an honorary doctorate in the humanities. Quoting the Huffington Post? It's official. Beck is now a doctor of philosophy. I could stop there but why not read on. Liberty University's honoring of Beck is fitting because he has clearly established himself as Fox News' resident historian with his area of expertise being American civilization with emphasis on the early republic, progressivism and the New Deal. Glenn Beck, Ph.D., makes about a million dollars a month, earning him the distinction of being the highest paid historian in the world.

PAT: Done.

STU: That's all you need to read.

PAT: I mean, I'm sold.

GLENN: Thank you very much, Huffington Post. I think you said it all.

STU: That is great.

GLENN: I don't think there's much more to say.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: I really don't.

STU: Why read on? Why bother?

GLENN: I mean, the next sentence starts Beck has —

PAT: I mean, it's starting to get embarrassing, isn't it really? These accolades are like, come on.

GLENN: The next sentence starts, Beck has emerged the most influential.

PAT: Please.

STU: That's enough, that's enough.

PAT: It doesn't need to go any further.

STU: Doesn't change at all, America.

GLENN: Oh, well, it does say later, but one of — quoting the article, one of Dr. Beck's main peeve — and I think I want to just focus on the Huffington Post typing out "Dr. Beck." Dr. Beck's main peeve is that his belief that the founders, in quotation marks, the founders intended the United States to be a Christian nation and the idea of a wall of separation of church and state is a myth perpetrated by secular liberal elites. It's not that Beck is wrong. It's not that Beck is wrong about the ambiguity of the personal beliefs on the subject of the founders, but he and others like him are monumentally wrong by overstating the relevance of the intent of 18th century views on the thoughts and practices of the 20 and 21st century America.

So I just want you to understand. Now remember I'm not only a historian but I am also a doctor of philosophy.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: So if I may just point out, the historical part of this, the Huffington Post is verifying, I have right. Yes, yes. But philosophically speaking — and I can go here. Please, Stu, don't interrupt. I'm a doctor.

STU: But I —

PAT: Not only a doctor but —

GLENN: I'm a doctor. I'm a doctor, man! So —

PAT: But the highest paid historian on Earth.

GLENN: On Earth. And I may go as far as saying probably ever. So let me just say as a doctor here what they're saying is they are not only verifying historic fact but they are now saying that what I don't emphasize is the importance or the way things have changed and why we can't really pay attention to that anymore. Almost like we've, if I may as a doctor, evolved or progressed past the Constitution and our founding principles.

PAT: Yeah, and their relevance.

STU: And doctor, you have to point out, doctor, that —

GLENN: Please, please, nurse! Step away from the patient.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: Gordon Wood, quoting the article, Gordon S. Wood in June 2006 edition in the New York Times' review of books — now, this is the review, I believe, of the book that I'm saying Sacred Fire which everybody is reading now. It's weird. Anyway, Sacred Fire on George Washington, Gordon S. Wood, June 2006 edition of the New York review of books, which is when this book came out, we can't solve our current disputes over religion by looking back to the actual historical circumstances of the founding. Those circumstances are too complex, too confusing and too biased towards protestant Christianity to be used in courts today. Most of them are remote from or antagonistic to the particular needs of the 21st century. Do you understand? The New York Times is not saying this book is inaccurate.

Glenn Beck's American Revival

Glenn Beck's American Revival is a daylong event where you can find information, inspiration, and the preparation to help turn this country around...

 - Tickets now available!

PAT: Not at all.

GLENN: It's saying that you can't apply those things. It's just too confusing to do that. It's too difficult. It doesn't — it doesn't really, it's not relevant. So as a doctor and the highest paid historian on planet Earth, may I just say in my expert sheep skinned opinion that what historians, the riffraff really of universities, they don't make very much money. If they were good, they would. But those people have taken history and decided in their own philosophical moment — and I don't believe they are doctors of philosophy as I am, they have decided that because it's too complex, they will just edit or change history. For instance, if I may point out in a textbook that a young student gave me just last week, the founders went forward with this idea in the Declaration of Independence that we hold these truths self evident that all men are created and endowed, dot dot dot, with certain inalienable rights. That would be a cheesy historian saying let's leave God out because it gets confusing. Nurse.

STU: Doctor, if you're going to lecture other doctors on their accuracy, you may want to note that you are not a doctor of philosophy but doctor of Manatees. So —

GLENN: No, I think they — I'm just quoting the — I'm just quoting here the Huffington Post because the president told us to read the Huffington Post because it's information you can trust.

STU: This is a presidential approved source.

GLENN: This is a presidential — look, I know I'm a doctor, I have a doctorate of humanities. I know that, okay?

STU: Oh, but the Huffington —

GLENN: Worked very hard for that. But the Huffington Post said it — if I may, if I may, it is recently conferred an honorary doctorate in humanities, it is official: Beck is now a doctor of philosophy.

STU: So wait. This is a separate doctorate.

GLENN: This is —

STU: This is from the Huffington Post?

GLENN: No, this is the Huffington Post. This is the presidential approved title.

STU: So you have the Liberty University doctorate.

GLENN: If I went to — look, you are giving too much information.

STU: Okay, I'm sorry.

GLENN: Information can be confusing.

STU: Sorry, Doctor.

GLENN: There's too much information out there. Just go to the Huffington Post, doctor of philosophy, highest paid historian on planet Earth. Good night, everybody.

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.
