GLENN: Let me play Lawrence O'Donnell, this is said on

MSNBC on Friday, not a

peep from the mainstream media on this. Nothing on this.

VOICE: "I, Glenn, unlike you, I am not a progressive. I am not a liberal who is

so afraid of the word that I had to change my name to progressive."

VOICE: "I'm not either. Liberals amuse me."

VOICE: "I'm a socialist. I live to the extreme left. The extreme left of you

mere liberals. Okay? However, I know this about my country: Liberals are 20

percent of the electorate. Conservatives are 41 percent of the electorate. Okay.

So I don't pretend that my views, which would ban all guns in America, make

Medicare available to all in America, have any chance of happening in the

federal government. Okay. You can sit there and pretend that liberals should run

more liberal in conservative districts. The reason -- you love the loss of the

Blue Dogs -- you have because it disproves your point."

VOICE: "Chris, you can't go to break."

VOICE: "The only way you have a chairman Barney Frank, there's only one way

that's by electing Blue Dogs. It's the only way you have..."

GLENN: Do you understand what he just said? What he said is, A, I'm a socialist.

Do you have that?

PAT: Let that sink in for a second. There's a guy on national television,

supposedly a journalist, I don't know what he is really, what is he? A


STU: Commentator and former actor.

PAT: He's a socialist. That's right, he was.

STU: Former actor.

PAT: That brings a little more clarity to it.

GLENN: What a surprise. It does. Okay. So there's Lawrence O'Donnell on NBC and

he's a socialist. There's the first thing that he said. But the second is, you

know, you progressives, you're so ashamed of being called a liberal that you

changed to progressive, you have to change the word to progressive. I'm not

ashamed of who I am. I'm a socialist. But you progressives think that what they

should have done is run farther to the left. The socialist says no, no, no. The

best thing you can do is hide behind the Blue Dog democrats, elect them, because

then you'll get Barney Frank as your chairman. You see?

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: So what he's saying is live in the shadows. At the same time he's saying

I'm not ashamed of who I am. He's saying live in the shadows.

PAT: But he's also admitting this is a rare moment of all honesty and clarity.

He's also admitting this is a center right nation and there's no way liberals

can ever have a Barney Frank as a chairman without hiding behind the shadows.

GLENN: Right. You'll never get -- because nobody agrees. He says what I know

about my country is no one agrees with me. So hide. That's incredible.

PAT: It is.

GLENN: Now, nobody is doing anything on this. Nobody's showing that. It's no big

deal, apparently. Well, I wonder when I start to expose George Soros starting

tomorrow night -- and tonight, really -- I don't know if you saw Friday's show.

But Friday's show we showed you how in 15 days how this damn thing -- how it

will just shimmy apart. And I'm going to get into that again later on on this

broadcast today. I know Pat is very excited to talk.

PAT: Yes, I am.

GLENN: Economic theory.

PAT: I have a thrill going up my leg. That doesn't happen to me very often.

GLENN: Thrill or a chill?

PAT: Thrill. It's an absolute thrill. Chris Matthews type thrill.

GLENN: I'm going to show you and the reason you have to understand that, you

have to understand what's happening on that, is because it's all related. It's

all related. It's related to what the president is saying over in India. It is

related to George Soros. It's related to the birth pangs. It's all related. And

once you see it, you will never see the world the same way. It really is the

blue pill and the red pill. Beginning today, this week, is blue pill and red

pill, would you agree with that?

PAT: Where one pill makes us taller and one pill makes you small.

GLENN: Stu, would you agree with that, that this is the week -- do you know

enough about what we're presenting this week on Soros and everything? Have you

read enough of this research? I think this is blue pill/red pill, this is the

"Matrix." Go back to sleep if you want to or see the "Matrix."

STU: I think you made a good argument. Pat, as you said, there's just been stuff

I've seen in outlines I've never come close to hearing.

PAT: It's unbelievable. We do this every day, how do we not know about it.

GLENN: I will tell you the answer on how we don't know about it in just a

second. I thought about it this weekend, like you and Stu just said, I can't

believe it. I can't believe it. I was the same way. And I know the answer. And

going in you should know the answer.

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.
