Glenn Beck: Big Brother Arrives





Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

Happy anniversary everyone!

Yes, it's been exactly one year since the president announced that the police "acted stupidly" despite the fact that he didn't have all the facts on the arrest of his buddy in Cambridge. We're seeing that same style of decision-making coming from the White House to this day, most recently in the form of the Shirley Sherrod fiasco.

It's one of the defining characteristics of this administration: When race is involved, act quickly, act erratically, act before you have the facts and then call the other side racist when it becomes obvious you've screwed up.

Remember: In liberation theology there is either the oppressor or the oppressed. Now, this is where it gets tricky: The people who are in charge and are fundamentally transforming everything against your will? They are the oppressed. You are the oppressor. The president must play the oppressed card every time. Everyone in his administration are victims; you are victimizing them. And you, me and everyone else, victimized Shirley Sherrod... even though they were the ones who fired her.

Now, that's a tough case to make, but I that's why the president gets the big bucks.

While that pattern continues to repeat itself thanks to the disinterested eye of the media, there's another calling card on display here. I explained this with my usual reverence and subtlety as health care was about to be passed:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

BECK: The guy is absolutely a magician. OK? He wants you to watch — just keep watching, look at this, just do this. The guy is a magician, putting the spotlight on me — watch that. What happened? What happened? Oh, it's magic! It's right here. OK.

So what's the big deal? Well, it's not really about this. It's about putting the spotlight right on me, right on Fox, on anything.

They need to distract us long enough. Use that misdirection, because, see, once they pull up and you turn on the lights and you're like, wow, that was amazing with that coin, you see, what has changed here? Oh, my gosh! Oh, yes. Health care has magically appeared.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

So, here we are again, watching the shiny coin that is the scandal of the day. And what has magically appeared this time?

Big Brother.

The biggest rerouting of the nation's wealth in our history. The financial regulation that the president signed into law yesterday is an unprecedented assault on our economy, our ability to do business and, quite honestly, the republic as we know it — and when combined with his other supposed legislative "achievements," it's on a scale never before seen.

This is Big Brother.

Oh stop it, Glenn! You're just fear-mongering. Wall Street needed to be reformed!

Well, sure — among other things — it did. But not this way.

How can creating a protected class of arbitrarily selected companies that are too big to fail help solve anything?

How does creating a special path for financial institutions that fail, punish Wall Street?

How can institutionalizing bailouts mean that we'll have no more bailouts?

Why do you need 2,300 pages to say that you will no longer reward failure?

How does punishing lenders for irresponsible lending make it easier for the everyday American to access cash when they need it?

How does a government that is 15-digits in debt create an office of financial literacy with a straight face?

How does a government with 75,000 pages of tax code that applies to every individual, successfully work with other regulators to reduce undue regulatory burden?

Hey Washington, some regulators plus more regulators doesn't equal less regulation.

How does a guy who can't figure out how to pay his taxes and was involved in every step of the financial collapse, Tim Geithner, head up something called the Financial Stability Oversight Council? How do we give him the power to seize of any financial firm that he finds "in danger of default"?

Is this a constitutional republic anymore?

Not that Congress has a good record of spending responsibly, but how can we institutionalize a credit line for the Treasury so that Congress is completely irrelevant?

When we're constantly being injured by Congress, how can we take seriously a Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection created by Congress? How can a bill that just creates a panel that makes recommendations to an outside body like the Fed — that they're not required to follow — be taken seriously at all?

How can this bill be taken seriously when it does absolutely nothing to touch Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac? You remember Countrywide right? Evil, right? Making crazy loans to borrowers who couldn't handle them? Remember that? Well, 90 percent of loans originated by Countrywide were sold to Fannie Mae or backed by Ginnie Mae. If there were no Fannie/Freddie/Ginnie — or any other outdated name you can think of — there would be no Countrywide and likely no housing crisis or economic collapse.

And speaking of Countrywide, how can a bill written by Chris Dodd and Barney Frank possibly solve anything when they were integral to the collapse at every level in the first place? It's like asking Mel Gibson to write your company's rules on anger management and racial tolerance.

How can we stand by and accept as financial regulation a bill that creates a cottage industry for lawyers by making it easier to sue?

How does the Fed, which helped cause the crisis, get rewarded with more power because of it?

How does the Treasury — which helped bail everyone out after the crisis — get rewarded with more power because of it?

How does the SEC, which missed the credit ratings fiasco, get rewarded with more power because of it?

How can we be told there are no bailouts in this bill, when we are throwing a billion dollars to states to rehabilitate individual houses and stop crime? Or another billion dollars thrown at people who lose their jobs? Is that not a bailout?

How does creating a massive government bureaucracy with the power to watch your bank account and track every credit card account over your shoulder help your economic liberty? Big Brother is watching your credit card.

How does charging billions of dollars in new fees on banks help an industry that has already been devastated?

How do we pass a law that passes the buck from the lawmakers to appointed bureaucrats to decide how the financial regulation is implemented? None of this bill is defined — it just takes 2,300 pages to outline different groups of people who later can figure it out.

What is wrong with America?

All this week on radio, we have been diving into a blueprint from the 1960s and we're going to talk about it on television next week. There are people in and around the White House following huge parts of this plan, as laid out over 30 years ago, consciously or not.

The fundamental transformation of society comes in two distinct pieces. The first is "a united front against imperialism and for new democracy" built on a "joint dictatorship" of the working class and the poor. Class warfare anyone?

The second: "Developing out of the new democratic stage, socialism." Remember, we are all socialists now according to Newsweek magazine, so it might be hard to keep track of what phase we're currently in.

By the way, those aren't my words describing the revolution, those are William Ayers' words along with the rest of the Weather Underground.

This isn't the new New Deal, as much as it's an old, old idea. It's an idea that has been discredited for decades among normal people, but an idea that so many around this president seem to hold in reverence and still continue to borrow heavily from.

We are being played like a Stradivarius.

The progressive movement continues to move, and we continue to let it. Most of the media and our politicians are anywhere from complicit to apathetic. We are entering a dangerous and scary time, America.

But, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, fear no evil. As long as we have each other, we keep our heads on straight and we our focus on our faith, our Founders and disregard magic tricks, we will prevail.

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.
