GLENN: I was glad to see Barack Obama in the new Chevy Volt. Whew. This thing is going to tear it up.

PAT: Now we're fixed.

GLENN: America is back on the right track. The General Motors electric car, the Chevy Volt, it will cost $41,000.

PAT: What a bargain, though.

GLENN: No, no, seriously, when you hear what it can do?

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: When you hear when it can now, you sound like you are not

PAT: No, I'm setting up what it can do, it's an amazing

GLENN: This is great.

PAT: An amazing vehicle.

GLENN: It can travel 40 whole miles on an electric charge.

PAT: 40 miles!

GLENN: 40. 40. Now

PAT: 40

GLENN: Hang on. Nissan has the Leaf out and that can travel 100, but this can do 40!

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Yeah. America, you are

PAT: 40 miles!

GLENN: back on track, and he

PAT: And only $41,000.

GLENN: $41,000, but you can go 40 miles.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: That's for me that's almost home.

PAT: And then the gas engine kicks in.

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: And you start destroying the planet again. But those 40 miles, man, you are home free

GLENN: 40 miles.

PAT: and you are home free until you need to get rid of the battery and then it sits and decays and destroys the planet, but other than that

GLENN: All you need to do seriously all you need to do is plug it in.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And then you'll get that free energy right from the wall.

PAT: But wait.

GLENN: What?

PAT: Doesn't that energy come from electricity which you were paying for and using?

GLENN: No, comes from the wall. Comes from the wall.

PAT: Yeah, there's energy in the wall.

GLENN: I know. That's why I bought the house. That's why I plug, like, the iron in.

PAT: It's wires and it's all hooked up to things.

GLENN: I don't know how it works but I get it right from the wall.

PAT: Yeah, there's

GLENN: Everybody has it. That's the greatest thing about it. Everybody if you have a wall, you have one of those plug in thingies that you just plug your car in and it's free energy.

PAT: It's not free. It's not free.

GLENN: No, it comes from the wall. I know it's not free. I mean, I pay for it, you know, when I buy my house, I buy the wall and then that stuff comes out of that wall.

PAT: Comes out of your utilities, you know, like your electric bill every month.

GLENN: Excuse me?

PAT: Yeah, you are paying for that.

GLENN: You know, this is the biggest scam because I've already paid for my wall.

PAT: I know. I know.

GLENN: Why do they make me pay it's a scam.

PAT: It is.

GLENN: It's a scam.

PAT: It is.

GLENN: They are making me pay for the wall and then they make me pay for the same wall.

PAT: It's capitalism, I'm telling you.

GLENN: It's evil of capitalism. That's what it is.

PAT: You don't get this under communism because you don't even have electricity.

GLENN: And you don't even have walls.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: But that's a different story. We'll get down to the scam of them charging you extra for the wall. But this car can run 40 whole miles!

PAT: Not 30.

GLENN: Not 30.

PAT: Not 35.

GLENN: No, not 100 like Nissan.

PAT: No.

GLENN: But let's not concentrate on that. Let's go for the 40 whole miles and the president has pledged to put a million plug in vehicles on the road, which is where they will be usually off to the side of the road, you'll able to see them. But right off to the side of the road he said he's going to put a million plus vehicles on the road by 2015.

PAT: And they are smart looking, too.

GLENN: Oh, are they? I haven't seen the picture of them.

PAT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: Are they really?

PAT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: Seriously they are hot?

PAT: Oh, so hot.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: Yes. If you love the old style like Volvos, you know, that were boxy and ugly, these

GLENN: What about

PAT: These are

GLENN: But those are safe.

PAT: These make those look like Ferraris.

GLENN: Now, let me ask you this.

PAT: It's hot.

GLENN: Is it really?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Now is it at hot as, like, you know those old black army glasses that, you know, you used to get?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: You know, if you were well, if you had government eye protection, you'd get the glasses.

PAT: The horn rimmed?

GLENN: Yeah, you'd just get the black the big black, like Drew Carey classes. You would get those because it was a government program. So you could get that or you could get the gold wire frames that everybody in the military either wears the black glasses or the gold wire frames? Yeah, that's socialized eye care. I just want to throw that in. But is it as stylish as that?

PAT: Nearly. It's nearly as stylish as that.

GLENN: Oh, so I haven't hit that standard yet?

PAT: Not yet. But they are getting close.

GLENN: I'm looking at pictures. Wow, there's a lot of stylish cars. No, that's

PAT: Is that not a Volt right there? What is that?

GLENN: No, that's the green eye. That's BMW and oh, that's a sweet one oh, no, that's Mercedes.

PAT: That is a sweet one.

GLENN: Wow, look at that one.

PAT: And that's not the VP volt, either.

GLENN: That's Hyundai. I'm just looking. I'm going to find it. That one's kind of nice. That's Peugeot. What a piece of crap but it looks nice.

PAT: Peugeot, wow.

GLENN: Wow, what is that? Oh, this is the Scorpion. I've never even heard of the Scorpion. Oh, that's Chinese.

PAT: For those joining us on radio, and that's pretty much everyone, we're going through pictures of cars at the auto show? Is that what you are scrolling through?

GLENN: Well, this is the Beijing auto show. It's the he have Chevy Volt is supposed to be there and they're up against wow, that's ugly. Is that it?

PAT: That might be.

GLENN: No, that's the Dongfeng Motor Corporation.

PAT: Oh, okay.

GLENN: And their new car, the iCar.

PAT: The Dongfeng? Be clamoring for that one, I've got to have me a Dongfeng. Man, oh, man.

GLENN: Can I tell you something? We are going to be lucky to be driving a Dongfeng. We are going to we are headed for the crap heap of history, man. We're like, wow, you remember

PAT: Remember when we could have had a Dongfeng? Oh, those were the days.

GLENN: Remember when we used to laugh at dong fangs? Now

PAT: Good times.

GLENN: Those days don't come back. Now the richest among us are lucky to have a Dongfeng.

PAT: (Laughing). They cost over $300.

GLENN: $300 well, 300 yakels. They're $15 trillion or 15 yakels.

PAT: (Laughing). Is that the new monetary unit coming?

PAT: Yeah, the yack he will?

PAT: After hyperinflation it's the yack he will?

GLENN: Yeah, made entirely out of yak.

PAT: I didn't know that.

GLENN: Yeah, if you seriously, and I just give this to you real quick. Invest in yaks so you can own a Dongfeng. That sounds actually, that sounds actually dangerous.

All right. So we have the Chevy Volt. So is there really anything else to do? I think we can pretty much go home.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: Let me first apologize. Let me first apologize to the president of the United States and all those, all those that I must have sounded like an idiot when I said the government can't run General Motors.

PAT: See, out of retrospect, that looks pretty stupid now, Glenn, doesn't it?

GLENN: Well, I don't know if you heard.

PAT: Like to have those facts.

GLENN: 40 miles.

PAT: Yeah, I did hear that.

GLENN: For $41,000.

PAT: I know.

GLENN: That is sweetness. That is sweetness.

PAT: It is.

GLENN: Now, I remember driving the hydrogen car. Did you ever see that hydrogen car that I drove?

PAT: I don't think so.

GLENN: I drove, for about a month, what was it, the Fusion? Do you remember, was it the Fusion?

PAT: That sounds right.

GLENN: I drove that car. It was a General Motors car, drove it for about a month.

PAT: And you loved it, right?

GLENN: Loved it, loved it. First thing that the United States government did when they came in?

PAT: Stopped it.

GLENN: Yeah, they stopped that one. That was great. I think they had that up to 200 some miles? I think it was like 230 miles for before you needed a new charge

PAT: Before you needed gas or charge?

GLENN: Hydrogen. You needed $8.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: $8 for, I think it was like 250 miles. And the problem was is that, I mean, they had to keep bringing me a new one because the because the only hydrogen station I think was in either White Plains or New Jersey which was, you know, about 100 miles away and so, you know, I'd drive it and then it would be like, oh, jeez, now I've got to go to the hydrogen station because it's 100 miles away and then you'd get the hydrogen and you'd drive 100 miles and you're like, I've got to turn around and go back. But Shell had worked on had made a deal with General Motors and they said, you create the car and we'll put hydrogen stations in all of our gas stations. And they could make the hydrogen by using water. All they had to do is take some of that free electricity out of the wall that you get and shock the water somehow or another and it would make hydrogen and so Shell was going to put stations so everywhere there was a Shell gas station, you would have hydrogen. They

PAT: What happened?

GLENN: The United States government took over General Motors.

PAT: Why did they do you know why they shut that down? What was their reasoning? I don't remember. I just remember they shut it down.

GLENN: It was good. It would have put America possibly back on top.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: It would have led technology. It would have helped Shell. I'm just help me out. It was fantastic.

PAT: Quiet, too, I'm guessing?

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Quiet and fast.

PAT: Really?

GLENN: Oh, yeah. It was built on the back of another I'm trying to remember which

PAT: Like on a chassis of something else?

GLENN: Yeah, chassis of something else. And I stepped in and I thought, this thing is going to be gutless. Stepped on it; it was fast, it was quiet, it was great. I would have owned one in fact, I think I did something. There's probably some place on YouTube where I was driving it and I showed it and I explained it. This is like three years ago. And I did a little time thing. I actually made a little video. It was actually I think for my kids originally. And I said just, kids, I want to show you. You probably have one of these now. You know, if it's 2030 and you're watching this. But this is the first hydrogen car made in America. And as it turns out, one of the only now that we see.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: I was thrilled with this technology. I thought this was I talked to all the people at General Motors and I had seen the you know, I hadn't actually seen the car but I had seen the, you know, all the mock ups and everything else about the Chevy Volt and I know they were excited about it, but it's ridiculous. We get 50% of our electricity think of this. We get 50% of our electricity is there a bomb going off in here or something?

PAT: That's what I was wondering.

GLENN: It's probably your stupid computer again.

PAT: It's not my computer.

GLENN: Don't worry. It's just a bomb. We get about 50% of our electricity from coal. Now, we're trying to cut okay, I'm going to take a break because this is bothering me. I don't know what that sound is, and let me take a quick break here.

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?"
