GLENN: Let me tell you something you didn't know. GM yesterday bought a subprime lender. Let me say that again. The General Motors that we bailed out because they were irresponsible, just purchased, with your money and the approval of congress, a subprime lender. Cloward and Piven. Now Harry Reid also said that they saved Ford and here's the great, great audio here.

REID: Also the reasoning is quite unique. My friend says that we bailed out the auto industry. Well, isn't that a good thing we did?

GLENN: No.

REID: Isn't it a good thing today in America we have the automobile manufacturing sector? If it had been up to them, General Motors would be gone.

GLENN: Stop. Stop, stop, stop, stop. Yes, General Motors would be gone. You know why? General Motors was an irresponsible company. It is an unsustainable company. But the assets would have been sold to someone else and they would have taken those assets and they would have restarted a new responsible company.

PAT: I'm not even sure where they have gone.

STU: Bankruptcy, right?

PAT: They have been gone and bankrupt, no?

GLENN: Even if it was, you would have sold the pieces off. You would have had people like, what's the name of that electric car company?

PAT: Tesla.

GLENN: Tesla. You would have had probably Tesla come in or people like that that say, wait a minute, I can build a car. I can build a car much better.

STU: Before that would even happen, though, they would probably lay some people off and they would get out of those horrible contracts and they would try to restructure and get back into and it wouldn't just disappear.

GLENN: It would have been competitive and would have been it would have been awful for a while. You know, no pain, no gain.

PAT: They would probably be in a better position today because the government wouldn't be telling them what to do.

GLENN: I'll tell you this: The government wouldn't be approving General Motors today buying a subprime lender. That's one thing that car company wouldn't be doing.

PAT: But there were more surprises from Harry.

REID: Then Ford Motor Company would probably be gone.

GLENN: Hold it just a second. Ford wasn't bailed out.

STU: Not at all. Not one dime.

GLENN: Ford wasn't bailed out.

PAT: What a total dope. Ford got back on their feet all on their own.

GLENN: Mark my words. Watchdogs, please watch for this. I saw Harry Reid do you have the part where he talks about, we're not going to go for cap and trade?

PAT: Maybe

Democrats on Energy Legislation

GLENN: See if you can find that audio. I watched it and I mean, my skin crawled. I watched him say it and I don't believe it for a second. He said, we just don't have the vote, so we're not going to go for cap and trade. I don't believe it for a second. There is either something in these bills that they have already passed that gives them now the authority to regulate us into that or they are going to make another move. There's something wrong with the way he said it. I don't know what it is, but he said, "And it hurts me to say it." When he said that

PAT: Said it with his mouth. That's the problem.

GLENN: You mean he didn't say it with his heart.

PAT: Well, everything that comes out of his mouth you know is not true. It is not believable and not sincere. All of these guys. Yeah, I think this is it. I think this is what you're talking about.

REID: Stability not only to our constituents and our children, our grandchildren to take on the energy challenge we have in America.

GLENN: Watch him, watch him.

REID: Not once, not twice but very often. Many of us want to do a thorough comprehensive bill that creates jobs.

GLENN: Of course you do.

REID: Breaks our addiction to foreign oil and curbs pollution.

PAT: Yeah, we all want it.

REID: Unfortunately at this time

GLENN: Look, watch him.

REID: We don't have a single Republican to work with in achieving this goal.

GLENN: You don't need them.

REID: For me it's terribly disappointing.

GLENN: See that?

REID: And it's also very dangerous. So the president, Senator Kerry and I and others, large numbers of my caucus

GLENN: I'm sorry. Who? Senator Kerry?

REID: Will continue to reach out to Republicans and work with environmental and energy committees and communities to garner the support needed to move forward on a much larger, more comprehensive bill that I'm going to outline in a few minutes. But Republican political calculations don't change our obligation to lay the foundation of a safer and stronger future.

GLENN: Okay, stop. So he's immediately saying no cap and trade. And it really hurts me.

PAT: Darn Republicans. Didn't have a single vote on healthcare, either. They passed it anyway.

GLENN: Okay, you don't need the Republicans. Look, here's the thing. And I really want to say something. I'm surprised they haven't come after my religion yet. I've been expecting it. And they will.

STU: Many have.

GLENN: Many have.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: But they will. And they will try to separate you again from me but they will use my religion. I want you to know, religion is something that each of us do, something that each of us, is personal. I don't believe in collective salvation or collective damnation. Yes, I am a Mormon. One person that is never brought up as a Mormon is Harry Reid. Harry Reid and I, our faith stops us from throwing one or the other through a plate glass window. I think that Harry Reid would like to throw me through a plate glass window, but our faith says, don't do that; that's not good. But they will always, always take apart people's religion, especially my religion, unless you are a progressive leftist. Harry Reid is that. We both share the same religion. In the future when they start talking about religion and they will because Mitt Romney, who I also disagree with, Mitt Romney also is a Mormon. Now, he is not the same kind as Harry Reid, but they will go right down the same road.

PAT: Glenn Beck admits Mormons are trying to take over the universe.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Glenn Beck admits they are all Mormons.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Comprehensive conspiracy.

STU: Comprehensive Mormon reform!

GLENN: Harry Reid and I know there are a lot of people in my faith that say the same thing about me. They just don't understand what I'm doing. And I don't understand what Harry Reid is doing. Harry Reid I believe has an understanding of, I think he is part of all religions that look at small government as hateful. They don't care. You don't care about the poor. I think that big government is slavery. I think it destroys. Show me where big government has ever worked. Show it to me, Harry. Show it to me in Detroit. How about Philadelphia, how about Washington D.C., how about California. Show me where big government sets people free. I can't find it. Make no mistake, this argument is never about anything other than big government, small government, and freedom. It doesn't make sense to me that big government could set people free. It never has. Never. It is about small government and individual responsibility. We don't need more government. We need more charity. And charity never comes from government. Charity comes from individuals. Period. And too many people of faith, my faith included, understand charity as something the government does. Something that our faith does.

I will bet you that there is no one that tithes more than members of my faith as a percentage of members. We are told to tithe 10%. First time I heard that, I thought, you are out of your mind. I'm going to give to some structure 10% of my money? Are you kidding me? And somehow or another that's going to make me happy? It is a privilege and an honor to give 10%. In my faith 100% goes to the people that it is supposed to go to. And there is a responsibility attached to that. You don't get welfare from the church just by doing nothing. They will help you every step of the way, but you must do something for it in return. You must serve others in return, and it's not a lifetime thing. That's the way it's supposed to be. That's the way all of our churches should be. The church should never come and take your money. And by the way, they don't ask for a pay stub, a tax form, nothing. They ask you, is that a full tithe? Yes, it is. I could pay them a dollar and they could know, Glenn doesn't make $100 a year. But they will never say it. I'm sorry, $10 a year. They would never say it. Because that's between me and the Lord. No one is to come and take it. You give it. It is a fundamental misunderstanding of charity. It is the perversion of charity into social justice. Only the Lord dishes out justice. Only he is capable of evening things. And that happens usually after we die.

How many times do you look at somebody who is a really bad person? If you are a fan of this show, you can use someone else. If you hate me, you can use me. And you know you have sat there and thought, how does this guy, how does he make it? How is he successful? How does he make his money? How come karma hasn't killed him yet? There are many people who think that my eyes and my macular dystrophy is karma. Well, I will only find out in the end. How many times have you looked at people and said, how is it they're successful, they're so evil? Because justice comes in God's time. He measures it out in His way, and it is not for us to measure out justice unless it is a violation of man's laws. But somehow or another there are so many in our churches that just don't get it. The Washington Post had this unbelievable story. I mean, it's unbelievable what they say about social justice and about how the government has to do it, and it's God. You will misread the Bible if you don't think that God is telling the government to grow and get bigger and make social justice happen. Excuse me? What version of the Bible are you reading?

11 things you can do to help stop the Great Reset

Photo by Arthur Franklin on Unsplash

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?"
