Glenn Beck: The primary problem...

GLENN: My name is Glenn Beck, along with Pat Gray and Steve Burguiere, otherwise known as Stu, our executive producer, and Stu has been following all of the charts, all of the numbers for the election. It is yet another primary day today. We had quite a heated discussion this morning on who we would vote for if we were in Delaware today, and I would go with what's her face.

PAT: O'Donnell?

GLENN: Whatever.

STU: It's in theory. We should make the point that we don't know anything really.

GLENN: Nope, don't. Nope.

STU: It's one of those things like the way it is presented as O'Donnell is the real conservative in the race.

PAT: And Mike Castle is, of course, not.

STU: Moderate.

PAT: And really that's accurate. I mean, I think he's pretty moderate.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Yeah, yeah.

PAT: He's a pretty well known RINO. But the problem is in Delaware O'Donnell in the polls at least trails the Democrat candidate, whatever his name is, by 11 points. And Castle leads the Democrat by 11 points. So there's a 22 point swing there. So you want the conservative, but you're torn because there is a chance.

GLENN: Torn between two lovers.

STU: Oh, sing it.

PAT: Or in this case

GLENN: Okay, here's the thing.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: Here's the thing. America, may I, may I express that these two very intelligent men have become clowns today.

STU: Have we?

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Here's how. You guys, what is the definition of insanity?

STU: Let me look that up.

PAT: Glenn Beck?

(Laughter by all).

GLENN: Oh, man.

PAT: That is rich.

GLENN: You got me on that one.

PAT: That's rich.

GLENN: Okay. So what is the definition of insanity? It's doing the same thing.

PAT: Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

STU: The second album from melodic death metal band Darkane. It's like I don't understand what that has to do with this conversation.

PAT: I don't, either.

GLENN: Here's the thing. We find ourselves in this same situation. This is the argument that people gave for John McCain.

STU: No.

GLENN: Yeah, it is.

STU: It's totally different situation.

PAT: It is a different situation.

STU: Totally different situation.

PAT: And here's why.

GLENN: He was running for president.

PAT: Let's at least lay out the scenario.

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: There's obviously most people think Republicans win back the House, but there's also a chance now that they could do the ten person swing in the Senate and regain control of the Senate as well, and Delaware is one of the keys, if not the key to making that happen. So you want the best chance possible. As much as we aren't all about Republicans, we are about conservative values and there's a better chance we might see some and put a stop to some of this madness if

STU: Wow, that was not the whole scenario. He cut you off.

PAT: I know.

GLENN: Because I get it.

PAT: You get it but others may not.

STU: And there's more to it, I think.

GLENN: Are you calling the American people stupid?

PAT: No, I'm not.

GLENN: That's what I heard, Stu.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Is that what you heard?

STU: That's what Cass Sunstein said, the Homer Simpson America. That's what Pat Gray believes.

GLENN: Wow. Here he is.

PAT: You had a chance to turn on me, you turn.

STU: I'm Arlen Specter. Any party that wants me.

PAT: Really?

STU: Yeah.

PAT: Arlen "Stu" Specter.

GLENN: Here's the

PAT: I didn't leave Pat Gray's position. Pat Gray left me.

GLENN: How many tea party people have destroyed the Republican candidate.

PAT: I'm not done.

STU: Many. Many, many, many. I don't know the number.

GLENN: I think it's like we're up to eight now, isn't it?

STU: I would say probably more than that.

GLENN: Eight where no, no, no. Eight where everyone thought, no, they don't have even a chance.

STU: Yeah, I mean, and Christine O'Donnell is one of these.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: She ran against Biden last time and lost by 30.

GLENN: Okay. So here you have the tea party movement. And me personally, I would vote for what's her face. I know nothing about her.

STU: Right.

GLENN: Because you've got to break the back of the people like Trent Lott. If you don't, if you don't get progressives out of the Republican Party, if you don't chase with a broom people like John McCain, people like Lindsey Graham, the republic doesn't stand a chance. It's not going to work. It won't last. Because there's no choice. There is suicide by gunshot to the head or suicide by cocaine powder, slowly.

STU: But I think there's a larger picture here, and just look at it in a different way for a second.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: You're talking about taking, accepting a progressive as a Republican presidential candidate. Well, we can take we've had nonprogressive Republican. We had a Ronald Reagan. We can get Ronald Reagan in that position.

GLENN: Here's the problem no, no, no.

STU: There's no evidence we can get Ronald Reagan in the Senate in Delaware right now.

GLENN: Here is and I get that. But you've got to look at

STU: It's okay in Massachusetts maybe but not Lindsey Graham in South Carolina.

GLENN: I get it.

STU: We can get Jim DeMint in South Carolina.

GLENN: I get it that you have to have more liberal conservatives in places like California or Massachusetts, and I understand about Lindsey Graham because there's no excuse for Lindsey Graham.

STU: None.

GLENN: None. However, we're running out of time. And if anybody thinks that this November election is going to be the end all and be all and it's going to solve our problems and it's I don't even know if it slows our problems down. With them winning the House and the Senate. Don't, don't you dare think that it's beyond the realm of possibilities. Tonight we're going to show you I mean, what, did we just spend two hours this morning working on some stuff that we're going to bring on the radio show and television tonight about Frances Fox Piven and what's happening in England, all of the ties over there, what's happening with Cass Sunstein and nudging, and also what's happening with people on violence. I mean, I'm just not convinced that when you get a Republican let's just say you win the Republican Senate and the Republican House of Representatives and they say we're going to start cutting. You're not going to have enough to override a veto. So you are going to start cutting, and what is the president going to do? The president is going to they are already doing it with John Boehner. How many times has he said the name John Boehner in the last 24 hours? John Boehner has no power yet. He's already saying he's already said that it was the Republicans that stopped healthcare. No, they didn't have a chance to stop healthcare. It was your own people. He's blaming it on the Republicans for the taxes. Well, excuse me? You've already got, what, four, five Democrats that say, we're not standing with the president on tax hikes. We've got to have we've got to continue the Bush tax cuts or it will kill the economy.

So what you're going to have is the president is going to have all this fuel and he's going to go right directly mark my words. Van Jones is already doing it right directly to the most progressive, most violent, the worst of the worst on the left. And stir them up, get out into the streets, cause trouble. It's coming. It's what's coming.

Now, you have a choice. You either stand on your principles or you continue to make the same mistake that we always make. I've made it my whole life, too. And you say, well, but I want to win, I want to make sure. Not to win win, but we've got to compromise, we've got to... yeah, you do, but at some point you have to say enough. Enough is enough. And I we're running out of time, gang.

STU: I really think that that's an argument to not advocate for running Scott Brown in every state, where the Republicans could run Scott Brown everywhere and probably win 80 Senate seats and what good would that do? But when you're talking about look at Utah. You take Bennett and you replace him with Mike Lee, and everyone acknowledges that's a move, I don't know, two steps to the right. In, you know, in Delaware a move two steps to the right might be Biden to Castle. We're saying do we want two steps to the right or no steps to the right in Delaware. Because like, again, under the scenario like when she loses

GLENN: I want people like Trent Lott to be shut down in the Republican Party. Trent Lott said, and if I may quote, these tea party people, they're a danger to us and we've got to shut them down. If they come in, we've got to coopt them. They need to be this, to me, this election is not about the Democrats as much as it is about the Republicans. Those people like Trent Lott and all these people that have, they think, a lock on power, because they can convince you that, well, you're going to have to come the minute you compromise they go, see, they'll do it every time. They have to have us. They'll accept us because they need us.

STU: It's a good point.

PAT: It's a great point.

STU: My mind is not made up on that. And I think that, like, to me there's a difference because a vote is a personal choice. To me there's no question who you vote for.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: There's that sort of, who you kind of, the back of your mind kind of root for, it might be different in this scenario.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. No, you know what

STU: It's kind of evil maybe, but

GLENN: Oh, no. You know what? When you do

PAT: You are just flat out wrong on this, Stu. What, are you communist or something? You are just completely wrong on this.

STU: Thanks, Pat.

GLENN: You make a great point on this, and the point is there are times that you do things that you're like, oh, crap, I don't want to do this. And you're hoping, you're hoping that it doesn't happen that way. You know what I mean?

STU: Right.

GLENN: You do it and you're like, okay. But you're hoping that it doesn't lead to something you know, for instance, in my church you have to, you know, everybody serves. I mean, I could become see how frightening this could be. I could become the bishop in my church. It's all voluntary. It's lay clergy. So you don't volunteer. If you want the job, you usually don't get the job. And everybody just does something else. Well, I go to church and I know that's a possibility and I keep going to church and I'm really hoping no, let me rephrase this because you don't want it, you usually get it. I really want the job of bishop.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: You see what I mean?

STU: Right.

GLENN: But it doesn't there's a lot of things in life that you do that you're like, oh, crap. And you root

STU: Right.

GLENN: for the other thing to happen.

STU: Sure.

GLENN: But you still stand there. And that's where we need to be. You still stand where you need to be.

STU: Yeah, I think personally and I've always felt this with a vote. You always should vote for the person you think would be the best person to win.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: You should never vote for who you think should win or who you think might win, you know, in terms of political thing.

GLENN: You compromise.

STU: But I think when you're looking at it as an overall perspective

GLENN: This is why he said, George Washington said that parties would be the death of us. Because they would collude, they would become corrupt, et cetera, et cetera, and then we would play this game. Instead of parties, vote for the individual. Vote for the person. And look, I haven't done this before. I haven't done this before. But we have to. Because of the people like Trent Lott that say, these tea party people, we'll just coopt them. And they will. And they will.

STU: I'm just glad you brought some sense to this unlike Pat who's been ridiculous the entire time.

PAT: I don't even know where you're coming from today.

STU: You're way off your base today, Pat.

PAT: Over to the dark side or with the Communist Party.

GLENN: I think you both are

STU: I'm with Glenn. I stand with Glenn. I don't know where you are.

GLENN: I think you are both clowns and you need to have your mic turned off.

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?"
