GLENN: This is Alvin Greene. Remember, the candidate in -- where is he?

PAT: South Carolina.

GLENN: South Carolina.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And this guy is the worst. He's on one of those shows, I guess on MSNBC

and he is -- he's conducting an interview and you've heard -- you've heard

people sigh, just stick to your talking points, stick to your talking points.

Well, this guy is such a simpleton that he doesn't understand that you weave

your talking points in. He just -- again, because people say, it doesn't matter

what they ask you. You just answer the way you --

STU: I totally agree with this analysis. When you go into this interview and

realize he that one message to convey and then afterwards test yourself. Do you

remember it? What was the message?

PAT: What was the one message?

STU: I think this is going to be one of the most affective interviews you'll

ever hear.

GLENN: You'll never hear anything like this again.

VOICE: Good morning. There's a first question that all Senate candidates have to

answer this year and that is, of course, are you a witch?

GREENE: No. First I want to remind everyone that the man started the recession.

VOICE: There you go. You're on your talking points. You're not a witch and

DeMint started the recession. All right. Now, your nickname in high school, I'm

told, was turtle. Does that tell us -- and where did that come from and does

that tell us anything about how this race might end up?

GREENE: DeMint started the recession. DeMint is responsible for the recession and

I'm the best candidate that defines where we're at right now in this country.

GLENN: Okay. Stop, stop. I don't think a truer sentence has been uttered.

STU: He just defined where we're at.

GLENN: He does define --

PAT: Yes.

GLENN:  -- where we're at as a country.

GLENN: Yes. All right.

VOICE: People tell you no matter what the question is, just do your talking

points and all that stuff, but seriously, Alvin, your nickname, turtle, where

did that come from?



GREENE: No. Like I said, DeMint started the recession and I'm the man that

defines where we're at in this country. I'm a United States Air Force and United

States Army veteran. I put concentration on both those efforts and an unemployed

military veteran currently and this country is losing and DeMint is responsible

for the recession. He started the recession.

VOICE: Okay. Let's go to some DeMint positions and see if --

PAT: I love that. Okay. He's just getting it now because he's realizing he can't

get past the talking points.

GLENN: He's thinking to himself right now, who the hell booked him for six


PAT: Okay. So it got --

GLENN: Where was this in the preinterview?

PAT: So, let's go with that. All right. Jim DeMint, what -- tell me about -- and

then he even throws him this softball.

VOICE: Tell us how you differ with him. Do you think that single mothers should

be allowed to be school teachers in South Carolina?

PAT: Oh, brother. Who -- yeah. We dealt with this the other day. This was --

GLENN: Was this when I was -- this is when I was having radioactive of isotopes

jammed through my throat.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And I -- it was a better experience than what I have a feeling the

listeners went through when they had to -- tell me this story.

PAT: Yeah. I think Stu knows it a little bit better.

STU: There was a comment that in 2004 that Jim DeMint made which was

controversial a little bit at the time and he apologized for and this is a play

off of that comment which I didn't correct, basically summarizing it and, you

know, making it seem worse than it was.

PAT: What he was saying was that we need to have teachers who are good examples

to our kids and you don't want -- wasn't it an unmarried or a --

STU: Unmarried.

PAT: Unmarried pregnant woman teaching class. Is that what it was?

STU: Something in that general vicinity and then later he's --

GLENN: I think Jim DeMint has just uttered the first phrase that I can't get

behind, I can't get my arms around.

PAT: And it was clear back in 2004.

GLENN: Oh. Clear back in 2004. If it was maybe 1904, I could understand it

PAT: There may be more nuance to that.

STU: No, no. Not only did you disagree with it, he disagreed with it. He

immediately came out and said, that's not what I men and he corrected it the

next day. It's been a dead issue for six years. They're just bringing it up now

because --

GLENN: It was a poorly-worded, that's not what he meant.

STU: Yeah. And he talked about it right after that.

GLENN: All right. I got you.

GREENE: Yes. That's their private life and as long as their private life doesn't

interfere with how they do their job, that's -- so that that's fine. It's --

what they do in their private life, I mean, as long it doesn't have anything to

do with how they do their job. That's fine and it's just poor positions from

DeMint that has gotten us into this recession. DeMint started the recession

VOICE: How did DeMint personally start the recession?

GREENE: Irresponsible spending.

PAT: That's a DeMint thing, boy

GREENE: Cuts to education.

STU: That's what it started it, education cuts.

GREENE: Supporting the Bush tax plan that -- and mismanagement of Federal


GLENN: Barnie Frank.

PAT: No, but DeMint has always mismanaged Federal resources.

GLENN: Always.

PAT: Always. If there's one thing you know Jim DeMint for --

GLENN: I was thinking Chris Dodd, but, no, Jim DeMint. Okay.

VOICE: We don't look at --

GLENN: You could say that he is mismanaging Federal resources because Jim

believes that the Federal Government doesn't have any resources.

PAT: Well, true.

GLENN: And that they're the people's resources and so give them back to the

people. I mean, that's a mismanagement of Federal resources.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: It sounds like the type of policy that would start a recession.

GLENN: Not only cause it, but be responsible for it.

VOICE: The wars he managed in Afghanistan and --

PAT: Remember when they appointed him commander and chief of all Middle East

wars? Yeah. And he just --

GLENN: He screwed it up. He screwed it up.

PAT: He was so busy mismanaging Federal resources, he couldn't manage the war.


VOICE: Irresponsible spending and this mismanagement of government resources.

GLENN: Stop just a second. I want you to know, he retracted the replace all the

guns with bananas the very next day.

PAT: Did he really?

GLENN: The very next day. He said --

PAT: I didn't remember that.

GLENN: -- that's not what I meant.

PAT: Oh, wow.


VOICE: Mismanagement of resources. It's destroyed this country and --

PAT: It has.

VOICE: I see that he's responsible for it and that's fact. DeMint started the

recession and he's responsible for the recession and it doesn't make any sense,

sending someone back to Washington that is messing things up every day.

PAT: This is my favorite part. After all of this, this is my favorite part.

GLENN: This is really -- this should tell you everything you need to know about


PAT: Sure.

GLENN: I mean, you already know it, but -- really I think this goes all across

the news spectrum. This is all of the networks, because, remember, this is NBC

news and this is supposedly a -- this is a guy you'll see on Meet the Press,

Lawrence O'Donnell. You'll see this guy everywhere. I've seen him on NBC news.

STU: Who will see him?

GLENN: Well, I mean --

PAT: The three people.

STU: In the day when you would watch it.

GLENN: So, this is a guy who in the circles of journalists, they think he's far

more credible than somebody like Bill O'Reilly or somebody like me, far more

reliable. Oh, yeah. We're a joke. Listen to this.

VOICE: Well, I've got to tell you, I don't think Jim DeMint personally started

the recession, but I do think Alvin Greene, still better than Jim DeMint.

PAT: Wow. That tells us everything -- seriously


The stock markets have taken a nosedive in the biggest downtrend since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. But that's nothing compared to what's coming thanks to our government's embrace of modern monetary theory, warned BlazeTV's Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It really is important that you understand what's happening to us," Glenn stated. "Modern monetary theory is truly the [fuel] ... for the great reset. It is the idea that we can print as much money and spend as much money as we want," he explained.

"Then the next step is to release the Federal Reserve digital currency and make payments by other currencies [including cryptocurrencies] illegal," he continued. "And you're seeing it happen now in real time. Why would they do this? Because you cannot print this kind of money without having absolute control over how it is spent."

Glenn broke down the steps powerful political organizations — like the Federal Reserve — will take to end currency competition and enact a Federal digital dollar, which will allow for the government to have complete control over how we spend our money.

"This is what's coming. This is coming quickly, and events will make it move faster. For instance, why is Joe Biden basically giving Ukraine to Russia? He's giving it to them. He he knows Russia's not afraid of him. Putin knows that [Biden] is not going to do anything ... neither is NATO. They're not going to do anything," Glenn said.

"It's because war resets everything. War is the best great resetter. Changes boundaries. It changes borders. It changes laws. It changes societies. It changes currencies. It changes everything. And in the end you just want the war to stop. And so you you accept whatever it is the terms are that you're going to have to live under now. We're in very, very dangerous times. The only way to survive this is to know why they are dangerous times."

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."
