GLENN: Andrew Breitbart is here. We were talking off the air about a couple of things. There are just so many things that just don't make sense, but the world is moving so fast that we don't have time to cover all of them, and one of the things that has bothered from the beginning, one of the first moves the president did was on the census, and he started screwing with the census from day one.

BREITBART: We have in studio with us the person who's responsible for delinking the census from ACORN and that's James O'Keefe who took down ACORN. I think he's an American hero. He would have been on the cover of Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair.

GLENN: Sure.

BREITBART: He would have had a reality show in which his — James O'Keefe is inspired not to just do James O'Keefe undercover videos. It's to inspire other young people, old people, too, why not, to go undercover and to report the things that the mainstream media won't report and he has done it. While he was in peril in Louisiana for basically doing what Borad does, wearing an outfit or going there in order to get the story. That's what he pleaded guilty to that misdemeanor for doing what he blatantly and admittedly does.

GLENN: Right.

BREITBART: Trying to point out that Mary Landrieu was not answering her phones and lying about it. Anyway, while he was in his legal peril, he took a job at the census with another friend, a guy by the name of Shawn who's joined us here, and I just want to hand it over to them to talk about what they did, and I think it's hysterically funny in a very, very sad way because this is our country, this is our government, and there is no oversight within our government over how our money is spent and the mainstream media laughs and mocks us for pointing this out.

GLENN: What happened, James?

JAMES: I got a job with the census bureau while I was on pretrial release in New Jersey and I found that the census supervisors were systematically encouraging me to falsify information on my timesheets and typically what happens is you are given four to five days of training. Over the course of these four to five days we left at 3:00, 3:30 p.m. They told us with he needed an hour to travel to and from work, they gave us 70 minute lunch breaks. So as much as 20 to 30% of my time I didn't even work. And the same thing happened to before my colleagues. He also got a job at the census bureau. His name is Shawn. And they were just paying us for work we didn't do.

GLENN: One was in — James was in New Jersey and Shawn was down in Louisiana. So those are many states away and they found the exact same thing. We're talking about 600 —

GLENN: Shawn on the phone?

BREITBART: 600,000 temporary jobs.

GLENN: Hey, Shawn, how are you?

CALLER: How's it going, Glenn, glad to be on your show.

GLENN: Thank you. What happened in Louisiana?

CALLER: Pretty much the same thing as with James. I found out that there was a corrosive really element to the government when it comes to the taxpayers' money, that they are just willing to be frivolous with it, you know, being given — being paid for hours that I did not work and being given mileage that I did not drive and told not to worry about it. And just how systemic the problem is. And this is the taxpayer money that they are continually messing with in a time where people are being asked to tighten their belts, here they are, you know, wasting our money and we are sick and tired of it.

GLENN: How much money — because it was 600,000 jobs. We can just take these two experiences. Have you done this yet, Andrew?

BREITBART: I —

GLENN: How much money are we talking about?

JAMES: I did do that. If one hour is wasted at let's say $18.25 an hour which is sort of a standard rate give or take, you are talking about $10,950,000 a day. That's just one hour wasted. And they account for automatically in the policy half an hour to get to Bork. And all census employees live within five minutes of the census because it's regional. It's per town. So why would they give an hour to travel to and from work when you live five minutes away? And that's $10 million a day. That's a lot of money.

GLENN: Go ahead, Andrew.

BREITBART: Well, the interesting thing about this and I think it's a different story line than ACORN and everybody is saying, what do you expect, to take ACORN, the census down with these two videos? No, this is the beginning of the investigation into the census. This video is going to open people's eyes up and people are sending in thousands of e mails to us saying this is what we're experiencing with the census. I'm sure you are getting the same e mails. We have two cases of people who came to me proactively even before James did this who have shown me some evidence that census workers, one at a McDonald's and another at a Dunkin' Donuts, were just off in a corner, the enumerators were, actually filling out arbitrarily census forms. And so there is so —

GLENN: And why not? We've hired, we've hired criminals in some cases to do this.

BREITBART: Well, Shawn can talk to you about what one of the supervisors said regarding the type of people that they are hiring and —

GLENN: Shawn, what do they say?

CALLER: Well, I did talk to, during the fingerprinting portion of the training, one of the supervisors. I brought what I thought seen might have been a discrepancy to him and he said, you know what, don't worry about it, it's not a big deal. There's so many people going through the system that, you know, unless you have a felony or major felony or unless you come back as Jack the Ripper, you'll be fine. And I find that ironic being that there are actual rapists out there that are, you know, taking advantage of people under the guise of census workers and people being detected as predators, you know, when they go to the door of the people that are being — that are trusting the government to allow these people to come and do the work that is mandated by the Constitution. I just find that really, really appalling.

GLENN: Did you see, Andrew — maybe you can comment on this story — that there was — and I didn't have a chance to really even read the whole thing. There was an argument that census workers could enter your empty apartment if you weren't there, with your landlord? Did you see that story?

BREITBART: No.

GLENN: Yeah. I mean, the things that are — you saw it, Pat?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Do you remember? What was the story?

PAT: Yeah, it was just that. If you're not there at your apartment, the census workers can get your landlord to let them in. And it doesn't matter whether you are there or not. They are coming in.

GLENN: Just let you into the house.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: James —

PAT: Just look around, search your house.

GLENN: Did you hear anything like that while you were there? Was there anything else besides the money? Were there things that you sought, whoa, whoa, whoa, that's not right?

JAMES: Yeah. I mean, I wanted to be very careful. The census did take privacy in terms of sharing information on the forms with other people very seriously. I resigned prior to doing any data collection because I did not want to not even go close to breaking any laws doing this investigation but mostly what I found was just waste, frivolousness, you know, whatever, signing timesheets at 9:00 in the morning. But I didn't get to that point, no.

GLENN: Andrew, where do you go next?

BREITBART: Well, James has another major investigation that he's done that goes — it's a much bigger story than the census story. What we're trying to do is to inspire the nation to become investigative journalists. If George Stephanopoulos —

GLENN: We're on the same page, Andrew.

BREITBART: If George Stephanopoulos sandbagged us yesterday, they were — they set up, ABC News flew us in to launch the census stories, and George Stephanopoulos said, hey, I want to interview these guys. And the entire thing became about James O'Keefe racist, James O'Keefe racist, James O'Keefe criminal, James O'Keefe criminal and all these things have been debunked, the racism stuff debunked. He just went straight from the Media Matters/Huffington Post narrative. He's probably getting paid by the SEIU.

GLENN: You know better than I do. Give me Stephanopoulos' connections to the White House. Give me his —

BREITBART: More than that, here's — if you want to talk about how stinking the press is, this is a guy who when Gary Aldrich was put on this week, the number one New York Times best seller for Unlimited Access in 1994, who is the one that strong armed ABC, "If you put this guy on, we will remove access to the White House." George Stephanopoulos. That's not the only thing. This guy used his influence to intimidate people when he was in the political process. How does ABC reward him? By giving him the anchor seat.

GLENN: I mean, to me it's not surprising. This is the way it works and people like Andrew Breitbart and James O'Keefe can't get a fair shake. The news is splitting, and Andrew is on the right path here. You as an American citizen, you must be the one that does your own homework and watch for these things and get them to get these stories and these tips to people like me and Andrew Breitbart because we will expose it while we have the opportunity. Andrew, James, best of luck. Thanks.

JAMES: Thank you.

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.

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?"
