Glenn Beck: About those death panels...

Video: Bill Gates Wants Death Panels?

GLENN: Bill Gates I think is an amazing human being. Really, really smart. Very, very charitable. I have a feeling he's slightly liberal, maybe. Slightly. I grew up in Seattle, too. I can spot them a million miles away. He was giving a talk and he was talking about our economic problems, and the choices that we're going to have to face. And he talks about, the end of life expenses are far too much. We're spending way too much for the last three months of life. And because of that, we're going to have to choose: Do we have grandma or do we have teachers? Now, he believes teachers. I don't want the government to make the choice to off grandma. As uncomfortable as it may sound, I would rather have nature off grandma, you know? I'd rather, I'd rather have the free market off grandma because then nobody is controlling it. Nobody's making the decision. The decision is made through economics. That's horrible. But it's

STU: Glenn Beck advocates free market killing grandmas, mmm hmmm, mmm hmmm.


STU: We see it.

GLENN: It's much worse to have somebody, you know, on some, dare I say it, death panel making the decision: Who's going to live and who's going to die. That's not good. Neither of them are good.

PAT: What's amazing is these leftists coming out now and talking about death panels. Where was Bill Gates when Sarah Palin and you were being discredited every day for even bringing it up?

GLENN: It's okay. Because what they did, what the left did is they made such a big deal out of everything that we've said that now that these things are coming to happen, it doesn't hurt us. It doesn't hurt me. I've survived this long. I may not survive another day. I don't know. But the truth is out. I don't have to be standing anymore. I don't have to be here anymore. I don't have to be on TV, I don't have to be alive, I don't have to be anymore. You can discredit me all you want. The truth is out. The turning point was 8/28 and here's the truth. Let's just talk about death panels. Here's the truth. I just said what I've said, that grandma or teachers, it's going to be a decision. I would rather have the free market decide that.

Now, that's just the baseline. We can come up with something else. We can look into it. We can here's an idea. We can use the free market and reduce the cost of teacher pensions I know, that's crazy. We could use the free market and reduce the cost of schooling and we could use the free market and encourage medicine and medicine breakthroughs to reduce the cost... of grandma living a little longer. We could also do tort reform, which would reduce the cost to the insurance companies! It's crazy! Those are debates that we should have. What are you going to do? What do you want to do? But instead what they do is say anyone who says a death panel is coming is a fear monger. Okay. Whatever. Is that what I am today? Give me ten minutes; you'll make me into something else. That's okay. Because that's what you do. We're going to be over here talking about the facts.

Here is audio of Bill Gates, and he's talking about the facts. Now, Bill and I, I'm sure, disagree on the death panel thing, on, oh, teachers over grandma. However, he sees the world the same way, and that is as a realist. It's unsustainable. He wants the debate. So do I. Listen to him.

GATES: That's a tradeoff society is making because of very, very high medical costs and a lack of willingness to say, you know, is spending a million dollars on that last three months of life for that patient, would it be better not to lay off those ten teachers and to make that tradeoff in medical costs. But that's called a death panel and you're not supposed to have that discussion. So you

GLENN: Did you hear what he just said? That, of course, is called a death panel and we're not supposed to have that discussion. No. As thinking human beings, as responsible citizens, as responsible adults, that is exactly the conversation we should be having. That's why I said at the beginning, I didn't want Van Jones to be fired. I want to have a debate! A conversation! And not me. Us as a people. What are we doing? Do we believe in the free market or do we believe in communism or socialism? Which is it? Have the debate, America. Do you want teachers or do you want grandma? Now, I personally would say to Bill Gates: You know what, if I said to you, well, we've got to have these big computers and do you know how much? I mean, these computers are the size of a house. You know how much these computers cost? I would say we should encourage people to play in their underpants in their dad's garage to come up with a better system, and let the free market take it and take computers that is right size of a room. Do you know how many teachers we would have to execute and stop feeding to be able to have one of these gigantic computers? No, because I believe in the free market system, there's going to be some 14 year old pimple face kid that comes up with a better idea that makes computers so affordable that everyone could have them and combine them with their phone. You would think Bill Gates would get that. But that's what the free market does. Instead a death panel said, "These are the costs and we've got to stop all the costs. And we've got to control everything. You, you die. You, you teach." That's not the free market. That's fascism. That never ends well. But maybe it will this time. Here's Bill Gates who disagrees with me, I'm sure, but two adults that could actually are actually saying the same thing: Hey, America, it's important you have this debate. What he doesn't say is what I will. Because if you don't have the debate, somebody else will. In fact, if I may go way out on a limb, others already are. Take control of your own life. You're an adult. You're a citizen. You're endowed by your creator with certain inalienable rights. Forget about your rights! Start concentrating on your responsibilities! And your rights will automatically restore themselves.

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.
