Glenn interviews Laura Ingraham



The Obama Diaries


by Laura Ingraham

INGRAHAM:  Hey, Glenn.  How are you?

GLENN:  How are you? 

INGRAHAM:  I'm fantastic.  You're going to be at the Performing Arts Center?  That gives new meaning to the, you know, words performing arts.  That's awesome.

GLENN:  You know, the Kennedy Center, I have a feeling this is going to drive   

INGRAHAM:  Humble. 

GLENN: a lot of people are just going to go they're going to lose it.

INGRAHAM:  My question is that big bust, you know, the iconic bust, classic massive head of John F. Kennedy, will that just crack in two?

GLENN:  I'm not really sure.  You know, John F. Kennedy was more of a   

INGRAHAM:  Conservative.

GLENN:  Yeah.  He was much more of an American conservative than, I'll bet, 80% of the people in Congress now. 

INGRAHAM:  Can I say something about what I love that you're doing on your show every day?  And this is going to sound like a shameless suck up moment of the day, but it happens to be true.  The Road to Serfdom, I am so glad that you have brought this to the floor.  People who hadn't read it in college or hadn't been introduced to Hayek and what he predicted would happen with this enslavement mentality we're developing, sadly, in our country, if we don't get on the right path to free market reforms and opening up, you know, this land of possibility to everyone, it is so essential that people go back and read that and you've brought that out again and I just think this is fabulous.

GLENN:  May I just   

INGRAHAM:  Hats off to you.

GLENN:  May I just say I'm going to turn it back around on you and say this is going to sound like suck up, but this is absolutely true.  Do you know why I read that book? 

INGRAHAM:  Why?

GLENN:  You shamed me into it.  You didn't    you probably don't even remember.  You and I were having a conversation a long time    I don't even know when and you said to me, The Road to Serfdom.  And I looked at you and went, Huh?  And you said, You haven't read Road to Serfdom?  And I said, Yeah, and hadn't.  I told you no and you said, Oh, you have to read Road to Serfdom.  I went out.  I bought it and I, mean, I don't know the last time you looked at it.  It looks like the most eye bleed, boring book of your life. 

INGRAHAM:  It's so good, though.

GLENN:  And I read it because of you. 

INGRAHAM:  Oh, great.  Well, that's fantastic.  I had forgotten I said that to you, but that's awesome, fantastic.

GLENN:  Well, there you go.  You forget so many great things.  All right.  So, you have the    you have the book out, the Obama Diaries.  How is it doing? 

INGRAHAM:  It's great.  I'm following your lead, Glenn, from Threshold Publishers which I know you have your own imprint in and they've done a great job and   

GLENN:  They're great. 

INGRAHAM:  We debuted at No. 1 and we duked it out for No. 2 and two    two for the 68 in two weeks, even though we sold more than the book that was ahead of us, but, you know  

GLENN:  No.  That doesn't happen. 

INGRAHAM:  No.

GLENN:  That doesn't    that never happens. 

INGRAHAM:  Exactly, but, no.  It's been fantastic and, you know, people say, Oh, this is satire and how can you satirize the Obamas?  And I said, Well, look.  These diary entries that    you know, I didn't ask them for.  Them just came to me, but these diary entries are turning out to be her present and true than I ever dreamed they would be, you know, about the travels and the Spanish extravagance and the infighting and intrigue about Hillary, will she be the veep or not.  I mean, it's all kind of    it's in their musings and, you know, I just lay it out there.

GLENN:  When I wrote The Overton Window, I had a hard time.  We had to go back and change stuff because we're, like, Oh, crap.  They did that. 

INGRAHAM:  You can't predict it.

GLENN:  I know.  It's unbelievable. 

INGRAHAM:  Hey, can I say something else?  And, again, this is    I haven't talked to you in a long time and I've been    we at our show here and so many of the folks I've met are huge fans of yours and supporters of yours and are thrilled about the 8 28 rally.  Lots of folks are, like, Laura, are you going to be there?  I'm, like, I haven't gotten invited.  So  

GLENN:  Laura, I'm not having anybody political on stage except for Sarah Palin and that's just to introduce and talk as a mother on troops, but I would love to have you there. 

INGRAHAM:  Oh, yeah.

GLENN:  We have a VIP section.  We would love to have you there. 

INGRAHAM:  Well, I think    I think    I think I'm in town.  I might have my one day    one week vacation then, but I'm not positive.  I would love to be there if I can be there.

GLENN:  Okay. 

INGRAHAM:  But I support what you're doing.  But my brother Brooks who lives in Seoul, South Korea, watches your show in Seoul and he's always e mailing me, get    talk to Glenn.  I love what he did, because he's a big, you know, student of history and everything, but he says you have a big following in Korea.  So, it's a worldwide phenomenon.

GLENN:  That's where the big following is. 

INGRAHAM:  Yeah.

GLENN:  Laura, what do you think?  Do you think that    I said this the other day, that these people    the Obamas either know something that we don't know they're just not going to    why worry about elections, they are just completely tone deaf and stupid which I don't think is the case, or they really aren't planning on running for a second term because they don't    I mean, they're    there's no way to sell any of the stuff that they're doing and this trip overseas and everything else, they're just completely out of step with the American people.  Do you think they care? 

INGRAHAM:  Well, I really believe that they consider themselves as kind of floating above the country, that    they never truly seem to embrace the American ideal.  They were historic, they were iconic from the very beginning, and so when he spoke of America overseas, when he    when he did the Apologorama and talked we're not a nature of torturers, America is exceptional like the Greeks consider themselves exceptional, it was never a sense of being of America, right?  It was a sense of, yeah, we're there but we're more global citizens or even global celebrities and I think they really believe that that aura will somehow rescue them again, that the Republicans won't rise to the occasion, they don't have anyone with the same wattage as they have and that they'll basically be able to transcend whatever the right does.

GLENN:  Do you see anybody that is    do you think Chris Christie would run? 

INGRAHAM:  I like him.

GLENN:  I do, too. 

INGRAHAM:  I like him a lot and I think the idea of someone who is not working out every five seconds and    you know, might be a little bit corpulent but has really good common sense ideas, that might actually be the anti Obama play and could be really fascinating.  So, I love Christie.  I mean, I like a lot of the people out there.

GLENN:  Who do you think is going to run?  Do you think Sarah Palin's going to run? 

INGRAHAM:  I    you know, I'm guessing what Sarah's going to do.  I think not, but  

GLENN:  I think so, too. 

INGRAHAM:  I don't think so.  I think she's a king and queen maker and I think that's an incredibly positive role and she's an entrepreneur and, look, she has more experience than Barack Obama ever had and obviously wouldn't be doing some of the bone headed things he's doing.  So, they would have been, you know, a    now she would be leaps and bounds above what he's done and, you know, that's not saying much, but she would have done great.

GLENN:  Can Mitt Romney win with his    with his flirting with socialism in    I mean, is he a progressive or is he   

INGRAHAM:  No.

GLENN:     a good guy? 

INGRAHAM:  No, he's not.  I mean, I think that Romney    I mean, look, Glenn, he got caught in this Iraq trap, I think, in the last election.  He was talking a lot about Iraq and War on Terror and people were just tired of that.  They wanted    they wanted the CEO and chief in Romney and I told him at the time.  I was a big supporter of his.  I really like him a lot, but I didn't follow through on growing the prosperity class message which I think he is now onto.  He needs to mess up his hair a little bit, do a little    do a little less Ward Cleaver and a little more Fonzie.

GLENN:  It's not going to happen.  It's not going to happen. 

INGRAHAM:  Maybe not, maybe not, but I like him.

GLENN:  It's not going to happen. 

INGRAHAM:  No.

GLENN:  Newt Gingrich, can he win? 

INGRAHAM:  I think the problem, maybe, with Newt is he has incredible ideas and I like Newt very much.  I mean, look, I love him.  If he would be President tomorrow, I would be a happy person.  I think what he might be perceived, though, Glenn is a little too 1994 and that people want, you know, 2012.  They don't want 1994.  As much as they love Gingrich and I can be totally wrong, but that's  

GLENN:  Do you see anybody out there that you say, Nobody really knows about this person, but this person you have to watch? 

INGRAHAM:  Well, no.  I don't really see anyone sort of emerging from the states that we don't    that we don't know of and  

GLENN:  All right.  Do you   

INGRAHAM:  Rick Perry is someone I think a lot of people are talking about, as well, and    you know, Glenn Beck and people like that.

GLENN:  Yeah, right.  The Tea Party, Trent Lott says it's over.  We don't need a bunch of Tea Party goers and Jim DeMint is coming up here to the capital.  They still don't seem    the party Republicans still don't seem to get it.  Which one lasts longer?  The Tea Party movement or the Republicans as they have shown themselves to be over the last   

INGRAHAM:  That's an excellent, excellent way of putting it.  Well, look.  In the Obama Diaries, they write about    they write about the Tea Parties.  They demonize the Tea Party, you know, the tea baggers, we're going to connect them with acts of violence, you know, with vandalism across the country, we're going to make them look like really mean, intolerant, terrible people and it's kind of played out that way.  Right?  I mean, they're always dismissed and demeaned, but what I found    and I just came off a 21 city book tour.  What I found out is that it's really kind of an American movement.  I think the Tea Party monicker has kind of outlived its use.  I think this is just an America movement, I mean, and you and others are really, you know, responsible for igniting this new civic engagement that's very positive.  It's a forward looking  

GLENN:  It is. 

INGRAHAM:     positive and hopeful approach.  I have the chapter called The Happy Warriors and I think that    and, you know, Glenn, someone said you    someone told me you've been known to cry at times, but I don't buy that.

GLENN:  It's a rumor. 

INGRAHAM:  I don't buy that at all.

GLENN:  That's TGI. 

INGRAHAM:  You're a tough guy?

GLENN:  Yeah.

INGRAHAM?  No.  But being a happy warrior, you also have a lot of fun in what you do because you believe in what you're doing.  That's that Reagan taught us.  We need to do that and the American movement, Tea Party, whatever you want to call it, I think that is a very hopeful moment for the country and, I know, we really are the community organizers, are we not?

GLENN:  The name of    I wish we weren't.  The name of the book, No. 1 New York Times bestseller, is Obama    the Obama Diaries.  The author, of course, is Laura Ingraham.  Laura, as always, good talking to you.

INGRAHAM:  Glenn, congrats on all the success.  I hope to see you on the 28th.

GLENN:  I hope you're there. 

INGRAHAM:  All right.  Thanks.  Bye bye.

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?"
