GLENN: Do you know the Huffington Post is now doing a I love this. They are trying really hard. "We've got to understand this appeal to Sarah Palin." Here it is: We are awash in a crisis right now, crisis that requires smart and creative policy fixes. So why is someone who so rarely deals in policy fixes so popular? It's because Palin's message operates on a deeper level than policy statements about the economy or financial reform or healthcare or the war in Afghanistan. It's not Palin's positions people are responding to.

PAT: Oh, no.

GLENN: It's her use of symbols: Mama grizzlies rearing up to protect their young.

PAT: She's nailed it. It's the mama grizzlies thing.

GLENN: No, no, no. This is the best. This is straight out of Jung's Collective Unconscious. You've got to be kidding me!

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: You've got to be kidding me! We're going to Jung? You know what? You are so right. You guys are so smart over there at the Huffington Post. You are so smart. You got her. You got her. And what a surprise, it's selling for a dollar, Newsweek magazine. Huffington, if you keep working, eventually you'll be worth that dollar, too.

STU: You know, if I had a dollar for every time Newsweek sold this week, I'd have the price that Newsweek sold for this week.

PAT: You don't suppose it could be that the editor of Newsweek said ridiculous things

GLENN: Like what?

PAT: Like this.

VOICE: I mean, in a way Obama is standing above the country, above the world. He's sort of god.

GLENN: No.

PAT: Barack Obama's sort of God?

GLENN: God?

PAT: I mean

GLENN: Seriously, don't you think? He's seeming very god like to me lately. I like it.

PAT: Really?

GLENN: Mmm hmmm.

STU: I love how the fact that -- no one could picture how Newsweek could get any closer to the administration and then they sold to the husband of a Democratic congresswoman. I think they actually achieved it.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Who did they sell to?

STU: Was it Harman? Off the top of my head, I don't have that story in front of me but it the husband who's a very wealthy man obviously, although he likely had more than a dollar. By that standard I guess everybody's wealthy.

GLENN: Well, in today's society with the way this administration's going, that's pretty much how we'll all be. He has $2?

STU: Whoa!

GLENN: Wow!

PAT: I mean, it's amazing to take note that Newsweek lost about $30 million last year alone, $30 million.

GLENN: It's because they just don't get it. They are so arrogant. They think they are better than everyone else. They've bought into Walter Lippmann's lie that they are going to oversee the management or the dissemination of what needs to be done to the stupid people. They will just oversee the dissemination. They will just, they will teach us. And they know. They're in with the professors and they're in with the administrators and so they know. And the unwashed masses are just so stupid. I guess that's you know, Jung talked about it with the Collective Unconscious which the mama grizzly. That's the thing I hate about Sarah Palin. When I listen to Sarah Palin speak and she's like, we're just all mama grizzlies, I'm like, oh, please stop with the mama grizzlies. I mean, I like Sarah Palin because she's real. I like Sarah Palin because she's not a robot. I like Sarah Palin's policies, well, her I was going to say her failed policies of the past, but they were pretty successful, especially when it came to oil.

I'm a little quite honestly, I mean, I haven't talked to Sarah in, I don't know, a month or so but I'm a little, I'm a little puzzled by why she didn't step to the plate on the gulf. I mean, if she wanted to run for president, and I think that's the key, if she wanted to run for president, she should have been down there and she should have been organizing all those oil companies together and had some real press moments because that's where she excels. On energy she's amazing. She's amazing. And I don't think she capitalized on that the way she could have but I you know, again she's her own woman. Nobody's telling Sarah Palin what to do. And I think that's another reason why people like her. Because everybody knows she's her own person. She's doing what she wants to do. Agree or disagree with it, that's what she's doing. Nobody's pulling her strings. If anything, she's pulling other people's strings. Ever had that feeling?

You know, you see when she's for instance, when she first went out with John McCain to endorse him in Arizona, her response to me was, JD Hayworth? And at the time I was like, "Anybody but John McCain. How about a sock?" Seriously I'll vote for a sock over John McCain. But as it turns out if my choice is JD Hayworth or John McCain

PAT: Well, that was before you knew about this.

VOICE: $80,000 in grant money and I don't have to pay it back. So I'm ecstatic about it.

HAYWARD: We award this grant for up to $1.3 million, greatest news about that is we don't have to pay any of it back.

VOICE: How much money? I mean, did I hear right? Billions?

VOICE: Hundreds of billions.

VOICE: Hundreds of billions of dollars. Wow. Well, forgive me if I sound like a skeptic because that's a lot of money. It sounds too good to be true. Congressman, is it for real?

HAYWARD: It is for real. Now, I understand the skepticism in part because President Reagan used to say the greatest

GLENN: Stop.

PAT: You forgot about that.

GLENN: No.

PAT: You forgot about that.

GLENN: I didn't know about that.

PAT: Yeah. Now he's telling you about billions of dollars.

GLENN: I know.

PAT: Available to you for free.

GLENN: I know.

PAT: Now how much do you want to vote for him?

GLENN: I don't want to vote for him at all. I'm still going for the sock.

PAT: So what a choice in Arizona: Hayworth, McCain.

GLENN: So what would you do? What would you do?

PAT: I don't know. I'd have to look for a third party guy probably.

GLENN: I would.

PAT: You know, I mean, are you wasting your vote?

GLENN: No.

PAT: No, you are voting your conscious.

GLENN: No, wasting my vote is putting a vote in a guy who's walking with a border guard on television where the border guard looks at him and says, "Senator, you've been knifing us in the back here on the border for a long..." no, wait, that's not what he said.

PAT: Not what he said.

GLENN: "Senator, good thing you're behind us.

PAT: Way behind us.

GLENN: We would like you to lead the way so we can watch your hands where they are at all times because we think you are going to knife us in the John McCain, for Senate.

STU: The voiceover just cuts off the sentence like that?

GLENN: Yes. "Senator, we're so glad you are ahead leading us and leading the way because we really want to watch you every step of the way because we think you are knifing us... John McCain."

PAT: "John McCain."

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: I think they might make a better edit than that maybe before kni... gets out.

GLENN: Let me tell you something. I think all of us on the border, we all feel the same way. We'd vote for John McCain in a heartbeat, especially over, well, Satan, Lucifer.

PAT: "John McCain."

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: So... we got that going for us. Anyway, we were talking about Sarah Palin and, you know, I've begun to wonder now who's playing whom here? Is she being played? Because that was the thing: Oh, she's been co opted by the Republican Party. Has she?

PAT: I don't think so.

GLENN: Or has the Republican Party maybe been co opted by her, you know? You don't know.

PAT: Look at the way this thing has gone. I mean, it was six or eight months ago when she was, she was polling fourth or fifth or sixth among potential Republican candidates for president. Now she's by far first. Now she's number one and there's nobody even close to her and so she's apparently made a few pretty smart moves in the last six or eight months.

GLENN: This is again Arianna Huffington: This is the realm that Palin is working in, I'm sure unintentionally, and it's why she has connected so deeply.

Why is it unintentional? Is she not smart enough to read Jung?

PAT: No.

GLENN: And it's why she has connected so deeply with such a large segment of the public. In fact, her use of "Mama grizzlies" has a particular resonant history in Collective Unconscious. According to the Jungian Archive For Research in Archetypal Symbolism, the bear has long fascinated mankind. You've got to be kidding me! The bear has so long fascinated mankind.

STU: Not just the people that are always calling you conspiracy theorists, looking into symbolism too much.

GLENN: These people look for anything.

PAT: But you've got to finish. It's partly because of its habit of hibernation which may have served as a model of death and rebirth in human societies. See, it's that that she's tapping into.

GLENN: What is wrong with these people?

STU: Of course that's it.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: That's unbelievable.

GLENN: My wife and I were like, I don't know, there's something speaking to me in the unconscious level of death and rebirth, almost a hibernation of what are you talking about? My wife would look at me and say, what, are you high? "No, I'm no, I'm just reading Arianna Huffington, that's all I'm can I tell you something? She has tapped into a vein of nonsense that I just, it's very rare, very rare.

PAT: Very rare.

GLENN: On a deeper level it's complete nonsense, but there on the surface

PAT: Of Arianna?

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: It's just nonsense.

PAT: Yeah. But if you go deeper, what does it do?

GLENN: Complete nonsense, yeah.

PAT: But go beyond that. Go deeper than that. What do you get down to?

GLENN: Elitist complete nonsense.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: So

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Kind of almost a spirit of, I'm better than you.

PAT: That kind of nonsense?

GLENN: That kind of nonsense.

STU: You have to dig real deep to that to get to her. It's not surface.

PAT: It's to the bone. It's nonsense to the bone.

GLENN: No, it's not that deep, but there are seven whole layers to the human skin. I don't know if you know that. Seven layers. You've got to dig down like three.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: To be able to get to that.

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.
