Volatility - Glenn Beck monologue

GLENN: Here's the thing. I have not been calling for the great crash of 1929. What I have said is if we don't correct our policies, if there is another load put on this table, the economy won't be able to hold it. I don't believe there has been another load put on this table. This is natural. This is -- what's coming here in the next few days hopefully, if people, you know, hold on and don't go into panic, this will be a natural down turn and it needs to purge itself to be able to reset. So this will be a natural downturn. This will be a tough spell. I think we will go into recession but if our politicians don't make things worse, i.e., The Forgotten Man, if they don't make things worse, we're going to be okay. The caveat that everybody seems to always miss is this: You have these conditions which I've been telling you we were headed for ringing the warning bell loudly since August saying, look out, bad times are coming around, really scary stuff is going to happen. Today is the day where you're beginning to really see that. I've been telling you that since August but I have also been telling you it's natural unless we have another terrorist attack or something else that is put on the table. This is where you should be worried if you're worried about the Great Depression.

God forbid we're hit by a terrorist attack now. You didn't see this, or most people didn't, didn't see this back in August or November and everybody was in denial, but these underlying things, this is what's been bubbling since last summer. They've all been there and that's why I said if we're hit by a terrorist attack, we'll hit into the Great Depression, and nobody believed me because they didn't see -- not they didn't see it. They weren't willing to recognize that this was bubbling under the surface. And what "This" is is a fundamental problem with our economy. Nobody has trust in anything anymore. And I'm not talking about you. I'm talking about the world doesn't trust America anymore. When Bernanke comes out at 8:00 in the morning and has an emergency rate cut of 75 basis points, which is a big cut, when he makes a rate cut at 8:00 in the morning and futures actually go down, that's not good. That's not good.

When the stock market says, no, I don't think that's a good move, what they're saying is let it eat itself up. You know, here's what we do all the time. When I was a kid, I used to go out and play and I would, you know, scrape my knee and I would fall down on the sidewalk or whatever and there would be rocks in the cut. What we keep doing is we keep putting, you know, Bacitracin on it and we put a Band-Aid on it right away and then we give aspirin so you don't feel the pain anymore. What we don't do is we don't clean out all of the rocks that are in the wound. We always -- because our politicians find it easier to say, hey, don't worry; nobody's going to get hurt here. They never clean out the rocks. The system must clean the rocks out. We must allow it to really clean everything up or it's going to get infected, and it is so close to infection right now because this is caused by the Fed and the politicians and everybody else trying to make up for the tech bubble.

When the tech bubble burst, everybody ran in: "Don't let anybody get hurt," because there was an election, "Don't let anybody get hurt." And so they went in and they tried to fix the tech bubble so nobody got hurt. Then we had September 11th: "Let's go out and spend as much as you can, cut the rates, don't let anybody get hurt." That's what this is caused by, never letting anybody get hurt. It's just like your kids. You know this is true. I mean, the reason why you can see these things coming, the reason why it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure so much of the world out, all you have to be is consistent. All you have to do is understand how God parents us. If you understand how God parents us, how he lets us make our own decisions, he never withdraws, he never really gets pissed at us, we withdraw from him. We remove ourself from where he is, but he's always there and he's always there going yeah, yeah, I could have told you that one. In fact, I did tell you that one, shouldn't have done that. And then what happens? He lets us fall. And only when we fall -- and I mean all the way. There are some people that fall a little bit and then somebody picks them up and rushes to their side and says, oh, are you okay? And then they enable that person to continue to make the bad mistakes. God lets us fall. "Your choice, brother." And hopefully in my case right before death I go, "I get it." So if you understand how God parents you, then you understand how to parent your kid. You know you've got to say the tough things to them. You know you have to let them make their own decisions and let them feel -- you cannot run in and give them a frickin' trophy every time they lose. They lost! Every time they get a bad grade on their test, you can't go in and fight it with the teacher. It's a bad grade on the test. It happens in life. They are going to have teachers who suck, teachers who are against them and they're also more likely going to stink at what they do from time to time and going to get a bad grade. If you'll let them feel the repercussions of that bad grade, maybe, if they have a sense of what bottom is, they will correct that. If they don't, they'll destroy themselves, but they will destroy themselves if you enable them. You know that to be true with your family. You know that to be true universally with God. Why is it we try to make everything so darn complex when it comes to everything else, when it comes to voting for somebody for President? I don't want to babysit them. I don't want to nanny. I don't want somebody that is always there to help my booboo and put aspirin in my system and to put a Band-Aid on my knee and kiss me and make me all better, make me forget about the little booboo when there are rocks in the booboo. Let me fix it. Let me fail because if I fail, I'll only get better.

Edison was one of the greatest inventors of all time. He failed more than he succeeded. If you would have taken the failure away from Edison, you would have never had the light public. And think how green and perfectly temperature controlled this planet would be if we would have just stopped him from inventing the light bulb. And it's the same thing with the economy. You can't make everybody feel better.

Here's what happened. The Fed tried to make everything better by cutting the rates. All of these banks said, "Whoa, there's so much money here, what do we do with it? Let's just start giving it out." They made money because money was so cheap. So they started giving it out to everybody. Everybody was on the bandwagon. George Bush wanted to make sure that everyone who never had owned a home before could own a home. The Democrats, "That's right, oh, look at the minorities that have never have chance to own a home; they can own a home. Look at all of the poor people all around that can own a home." There's a reason sometimes that poor people, white, black, yellow, purple, don't own a home. "Look at all the people who have made horrible mistakes in their life but now suddenly can get credit again because credit is just so easy now."

Meanwhile Wall Street and the banking industry, "Look how great this is. We can just make numbers up. Oh, credit problem, he's got a bad credit problem? No big deal. Think of the money we'll make." So everybody had a stake in making money. Politicians, they kept their power because politicians could tell everybody, "Look, you, too, can have it. Even though you've never been able to get it before because common sense was the rule, you cans it now. Look, it's practically free. We'll pay you to live in this house... temporarily." People who just wanted to have a house, people who wanted to -- you know, I read this great story in the New York Times about why African-Americans spend so much money on really expensive sneakers, et cetera, et cetera. It's not an African-American thing. It's all races. All races do it. And what it is is you're modeling up. It's just more accessible to poor African-Americans than it is to poor whites because poor whites generally don't live in a whole area with a bunch of poor whites. They live with whites that are not -- they are not at the poverty level. They're just a little above. They are the lower middle class. This is what the article says. So when they want to model up, shoes won't do it. They can't afford to model up. They can't afford to appear to be wealthier than they are to their neighbors. But African-Americans, according to the "New York Times," they can model up because they're surrounded by poor and so somebody can buy $150 sneakers and they can afford that and they can, you know, cheat on healthcare or education and they can buy the sneakers because that way they can look like the neighbors.

Well, that's what everybody's doing. Everybody's been modeling up, except everybody tries to model up, I believe to television. Everybody models up to what people, what lives people are living on television. That's the way the -- that's the average American. That's the way it's supposed to be. Well, it's not! And so everybody went, "Well, I'm in this position. I can -- now the money's so cheap, I can model up to here." And the Government is doing the same thing. "We only have this much money but, gosh, let's spend money like we have this much." And because everybody modeled up, because the politicians wanted to make you feel good, they wanted to hold onto their power and because the banks and the credit industry and the insurance industry all wanted just to make money, you are going to pay the price. And here's the beginning of it. Here's the beginning of it. And the best thing we can do was to not cut the rates.

I know anybody who is a financial guru or on Wall Street or anything else, they will talk to you about, oh, no, you've got to cut the rates because people have got to be able to lend money to each other. Yeah, you're right. Short-term, what is it called, paper is really tough and what all that is, if I'm a farmer and I want to be able to plant my field, then harvest it and get it to market, I've got to take a loan out. It's short-term. I buy it, I take the loan out, I buy the seeds, I'm able to hire all my people and then at the end when I get it to market, then I pay the bank back. It happens all the time. That's the way business in America is done.

Now, you go to any bank today and they will come up with some reason why, well, it's a little slow right now. Well, I'm not really sure. But short-term paper is very difficult to get and it's only getting more difficult to get because there's not enough money because nobody knows what's coming next. Nobody knows. They are all hanging onto their money because, for instance, CitiBank, they write off, what was it, $5 billion and they say, that's it. And then there's another few billion and then that's it. And then it's $19 billion and then that's it. Well, how much really is it? The problem is everybody's so interconnected with each other, they don't know. You know, on The Real Story last night, I told you a little bit about the insurance companies, these bonds, these municipal bonds. This is where the city says, I've got to take out a loan, I'm going to issue a bond because we need to fix our sewer system, we need to fix our bridges, whatever. Well, just when you take out a loan, they require mortgage insurance. Same thing with bonds. I don't trust city -- well, to be honest, I don't trust the City of Philadelphia to be able to pay their bills if something goes wrong. I want to make sure this bond is secure. So they have bond insurance markets, and these insurers go out and they say, great. I'm making numbers up here, but a lot of these insurance companies went, oh, money's so cheap and everything's going to be so great, I've only got a billion dollars in cash and assets to be able to cover stuff but I'm going to insure $200 billion worth of bonds. Well, now the billion dollars is gone. How much more am I going to need and where do I get the cash. And that's what's happening. Everybody's holding onto their money because they don't know what's coming. People are freaking out in the stock market because they don't know what's coming.

Don't freak out on the stock market. You know what's coming. A big tightening of the belt, a natural correction. What you don't know is if there's another shoe out to dry. There are a lot of bad things in the economy that is going to cause this to look, I believe, like the 1970s. But we made it through the 1970s. What we don't know is who's going to be controlling congress, who's going to control the White House. Is it going to be Jimmy Carter? And we also don't know is there going to be a spike in terror or anything else? If that shoe drops, then we're in real trouble.

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?"
