GLENN: Yesterday the red phone rang. Yesterday is a date that will live in infamy. Yesterday at the end of the show, I get into the last commercial break and the phone rings. Now, the phone doesn't ring. It never has. Usually, they test the phone before I arrive on the set, you know, they plug it in and they test it, I don't know, about 45 minutes before I arrive.

PAT: Because the White House has never used it. So we have to make sure it still works.

GLENN: We have to make sure it works every day.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Now, two days ago or something like that, we were having problems with the phone or something and Harry called it right before the show? The phone rang for the first time that I had heard it, and it freaked me out. And Harry just, Harry is our boom operator. And so he just says from the back, from behind the jib, Glenn, that's me, that's me; don't panic, that's me.

PAT: And for those of you not in the know on TV camera talk, a jib is a big camera on a long thingy.

GLENN: For those of you who would like, I could of have just said boom. But I thought people would understand that more so I changed it to jib because I thought people in the press will write about that, that I don't even know what a jib is. This is how insane our life is.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: So he's a camera operator.

PAT: And the stories were already being written, too.

GLENN: Oh, yeah.

PAT: It's that insane.

GLENN: So anyway, he says, it's me, it's me, it's me. But it made everybody on the set, it made everybody's heart race. We're like, oh, my gosh.

Now, last night in the last commercial break, the phone rings and the entire floor stops. And Harry just says from behind the camera, "That's not me." Now, Tiffany, our producer, says in my ear, everybody in the control room is freaking out, and Tiffany said I thought she said, that's us in the control room. But what she said was, that's not us in the control room.

So I pick it up kind of flippantly. I said, hello.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: And on the other end was a voice that I knew was not someone from our control room that very sternly said, is this Glenn Beck? And I said and I knew. And they were very stern and I thought, you think you are going to get into my face? And I said, who is this? "Is this Fox News?" And I said, who is this? "Is this Glenn Beck?" Yes, it is. Who is this? And he said what's his name? Do you have it?

STU: His name is Tim, Tim Griffin.

GLENN: Tim Griffin. Okay. You are reading that from a news story, aren't you?

STU: No, this one is the e mail from trying to get in touch with him.

GLENN: So Tim, he says, this is Tim Griffin. And I said, how can I help you, Tim Griffin? He said, is this really Glenn? And I said is this really Mr. Beck? And I'm still thinking that it's the White House. Now, I'm told later that everyone in the control room is freaking out.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: And they are like and they are trying to get it patched into the control panel so we can go on the air with it. But it had been so long, it's been like a year. Nobody even remembers how do we, what wires do we have to patch into the control room to be able to get it. So they are all trying to figure that out and they are in the control room and they are like, who is it, who is it? Tell us who it is! And so I said, how can I help you, sir? And he said, well, I just want you to know I'm from Texas and you held your phone up today and on the bottom of it was writing. So I stopped the TiVo and I looked at the writing, and it's the phone number and that's I picked up the phone and I looked at it and I'm thinking who's I'm thinking who's writing the phone number on the bottom of this phone. And he said, I waited until a commercial break because I didn't want to wreck the show, wreck the pacing of the show here. He said, but I had to call you right away to let you know because I'm not the only one in America, I'm sure, that did that and that phone is going to ring all the time now.

And then we went back on the air and he was still on the phone, and I asked him to stay. And we still couldn't figure out how to patch it. So I have to thank Tim for doing that because I did. I held up the phone last night. I just picked you it up off the desk and held it, and apparently, you know, there's a piece of tape on it and it had the phone number on it. And I can't imagine how many people would have stopped it eventually and, you know, luckily it happened live.

STU: That is absolutely amazing. It's a cool thing for the guy to jump in and

GLENN: What are we going to do for him? We've got to do something really great. I told him, I said, we're going to send you some stuff. We have to send him something.

PAT: A refrigerator/freezer! A washer/dryer set! A new car!

STU: No, none of that stuff.

PAT: None of that? A player piano!

GLENN: A player piano.

PAT: No?

GLENN: No, I don't think so. I was thinking a book.

PAT: A book or a T shirt, something like that? How about the shirt you are wearing today?

GLENN: This is the this is the prototype of a shirt, a polo shirt that I'm having made as a special limited edition for the fundraiser for the special ops warrior foundation. If you let me may I model it?

STU: Oh, yes.

GLENN: May I model it?

PAT: Oh, my.

GLENN: This is the actual prototype and they are all going to be hand done because we're not making them en masse. They are kind of expensive but the proceeds go to the troops. Just keep that in mind. You see here it's well, let me see. Here's which camera do you want me to turn to? Here, take 4, please. Here is the

PAT: For Insider Extreme members, if you are on radio, just

STU: Completely ignore.

GLENN: Picture a polo shirt with a number 17 on it.

GLENN: On one side it has the number 17. The other side it has George Washington. This is all cut out. It's layered fabric and all hand stitched. And then this is the number 17 and it's got a little, kind of little things on it. And then on the side it says 8/28 and there's the merit patch on the shield. See that? And then on the back

PAT: It's a delicious number 91.

GLENN: 91. And I'm not sure if anybody's going to get the numbering thing. Oh, and there's one more thing. There's this here.

PAT: That's really cool.

GLENN: This is George Washington's actual signature, and it's sewn on.

STU: Now, he didn't sign it specifically.

GLENN: No, he died the last thing he did was agree to be a part of this fundraiser.

STU: And then he died.

PAT: Wow.

STU: It's important to let people know that he was not actually here signing the individual shirts.

GLENN: All right. No, that's a sewn tag and it is that George Washington signature, and it's on the outside.

STU: Glenn Beck baselessly claims a dead president is signing his shirts! Ahhhh!

GLENN: So it's 1791, the year of I didn't think it was the year no, I think that was the year we made popcorn for the first time.

PAT: Oh, was it?

GLENN: We were like, those Indians, they have been eating it right off the cob.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: You should put it off as kernels and pop it over a fire. It's much better. So this will go up for sale, I don't know, in a couple of weeks from now or something when we can and so you know, as obvious because I'm wearing it, we are making fat man sizes.

STU: (Laughing). So what's the future of the red phone? Do you get, like, a new number? Do you get rid of it?

GLENN: No, we're changing the number today.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: Changing the number today and we have to do what we did last time. I think with Anita Dunn or somebody was in, we had to special messenger or what do you call it when you registered letter to the White House and let them know the new number.

STU: Who should we send it to in the White House?

GLENN: I think they are

PAT: Sending it to Pfeiffer?

GLENN: Pfeiffer, I think.

PAT: Is it Dan Pfeiffer?

GLENN: Yeah, because we did it to Anita Dunn and then when she left, we gave it to Dan Pfeiffer. We sent it again to Dan Pfeiffer. So we'll send another one to Dan Pfeiffer.

STU: I mean, we could send it to Dan Pfeiffer but I mean, it doesn't have to be. Obviously once it gets in the White House, it's going to be passed around. I mean, maybe if Shirley Sherrod gets a job, maybe we send it to Shirley.

GLENN: I would like to send it to Shirley. I have a few questions for Shirley.

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.
