Glenn Beck: 'Them'


Them: Adventures with Extremists

GLENN: 6%. There's now more people that say we didn't land on the moon -- I'm sorry, there are less people that say we didn't land on the moon than there are people who said the United States blew up the World Trade Center. Conspiracies are everywhere. The whole MexAmeriCanada thing when honestly I don't know how to explain it. I don't want to go down that road but somebody help me. Throw me a bone. Everybody is -- you know what? We are becoming quickly the opposite of E Pluribus Unum. We are starting to divide ourselves with these crazy ideas and these conspiracies and, you know, Barack Obama's preacher telling us that, you know, the white man is the problem and, you know, once the white man's gone, you'll be fine. Nobody's look at reality anymore. Nobody's even seeing -- what's happening to us and how do you survive in a world where, "Well, you know, it's the Bohemian Grove, the people who worship the owl people. You know, Henry Kissinger and George Bush and Bill Clinton, they are all in on it."

I mean, I believe that there are very, very powerful people who all think alike and who talk, you know, and get together and I don't think it's -- you know, I don't think they are worshipping the God, you know, the owl God and sacrificing people. And if I do, I don't want to be that guy.

Well, I found a book, I don't know, a couple of years ago and I read it and I just thought it was fantastic and since we've been kind of noticing that more and more conspiracies are, you know, popping up, I asked him to write the truth behind the trees infiltrating the grove. His name is Jon Ronson and he's the author of a great book called "Them." Jon from the United Kingdom, how are you, sir?

RONSON: Hey, I'm okay. How are you doing, Glenn?

GLENN: Very good. You are a journalist, right? And you are not a conspiracy nut.

RONSON: No.

GLENN: And if I remember, it's been a couple of years since I read your book. If I remember right, you kept passing this Muslim cleric on the street in the U.K. and you were like, okay, I mean, this is nuts, right?

RONSON: Yeah. Well, he lived a couple of miles away from me and he gave a big speech in Central London in about 1996 where he said he wasn't going to rest until he saw the flag of Islam flying over Downing Street and the White House. In fact, I actually thought it was kind of funny. Back then those things seemed funny. They don't seem so funny anymore. He was a guy living in north London who was determined to overthrow democracy. So I asked him if I could hang out with him for a year while he did that and that's really how this amazing adventure began.

GLENN: For a year?

RONSON: Yeah, I became -- it was kind of, for the first few months it was okay and then he said to me one day, you know, I have let you into my life, I have given you much, I would like something in return. And I said, okay. And he said, can you drive me to Office World. And so for the next six months I became his chauffeur, you know, driving him to --

GLENN: Can you drive -- for some reason I just don't see an extremist Muslim cleric saying, I've got to go to Office World, can I catch a ride with you?

RONSON: Well, Office World gives you a special prize promise, they double your money back if you use their photocopying services.

GLENN: And if I remember right, he had one good eye to look for that.

RONSON: No, that's his friend, fellow preacher.

GLENN: That's his friend.

RONSON: Yeah. They are very similar figures. They preached in the same mosque and they had a similar audience and they were pals. It was so interesting to me that, you know, he was the guy who was trying to overthrow our way of life, yet he was going to the photocopying service, you know, to offer the special prize promise. Plus, the only collection boxes he could find were these giant plastic Coca-Cola bottles. So he would collect them for hummus and these giant symbols of western period. That was kind of funny to me.

GLENN: If it wasn't so real, it would be funny.

RONSON: Yeah. Well, it was funny right up until, you know, 9/11.

GLENN: 9/11.

RONSON: Yeah.

GLENN: 7/7. The spookiest thing that happened with him was what?

RONSON: Well, there was a couple of things. One time he outed me as a Jew at a secret training program. I never told him I was Jewish and it seemed kind of weird that I was kind of chauffeuring him about. Anyway, he took me to his jihad training camp in (inaudible) airport at a place called Crowley.

GLENN: Hold on just a second. A jihad training camp right down the street from the airport.

RONSON: Yeah. It's like in a scout hut.

GLENN: Don't you guys over in the United Kingdom have, like, more cameras than all of America combined?

RONSON: Absolutely. (Inaudible). Although I lightly discovered there's a guy called Omar Bakri Mohammed who is a convicted terrorist. He was plotting to blow up some nightclubs and it said on the news that these plots began at this very same scout hut that I went to where Omar announced to all these young jihadists, he said, you know, look at me, look at me with the (inaudible) Jon, who is a Jew. And they all went (gasping). I said, well, surely it's better to be a Jew than an atheist. And I heard someone in the crowd say, "No, it isn't."

GLENN: No, really it is, I'm going to make that case but I'm going to go to the car right now. So then, Jon, so then what happened was you started there but then you started noticing that they were saying the same kinds of things that other conspiracy theorists were saying.

RONSON: Yeah, this was a big revelation to me. Others said did you know there was a shadowy cabal that was secretly ruling the world and they were calling the Bilderberg group and followers and they go to this place called Bohemian Grove and I haven't really thought much about it because I thought it was just kind of nutty conspiracy theories. But then about a year later I was in Arkansas in the Ozarks hanging out with a politically correct faction of the Ku Klux Klan.

GLENN: Politically correct.

RONSON: Yeah, this clan leader who started to become politically correct and ban the rogues and ban the hoods and ban use of the N word.

GLENN: Yeah. Did at any point did they say, "And we're here with my friend Jon who is a Jew.

RONSON: They asked me if I was a Jew but I was in the middle of the Ozark mountains surrounded by Klansmen which I think I'd be forgiven and I said no. They were having a raffle and all the prizes were things like Walter Matthau videos. It was like, the Jews were everywhere, I didn't feel so alone.

GLENN: You guys know that he's Jewish, right? I mean -- all right. So what did you find out there?

RONSON: Well, the same thing which I thought was extraordinary. They started saying, did you know that there was a secret group meeting in secret, they were called Bilderberg and they go to this place called Bohemian Grove and it just hit me that this was extraordinary that these two groups, you know, a Klan in Arkansas and a bunch of jihadists in north London would all believe these conspiracy theories that I've never heard of and so I started to take it seriously, not take it seriously that I believed that these conspiracies were true. But I again said well, you know, if these guys believe that there's a secret room, wouldn't it be kind of funny to go around the world trying to get into this, trying to find the secret room.

GLENN: And you went in to not only Bohemian Grove which we'll get into in just a second but you actually went into one of the secret rooms, right?

RONSON: Yeah, this place called the Bilderberg group which, you know, a lot of different conspiracy theorists have united and believe that it was the shadowy cabal that ruled the world. Now, it's partly the Bilderberg group's fault because, you know, they do exist and they are, you know, a powerful secretive organization of, you know, I guess you'd call them top globalists, centrist globalists, you know, who do want to wield power. They want to influence politicians and so on. And they quite often -- in the past they have denied existing. So it's kind of their own fault really that there's all these conspiracy theories around them. But I didn't think they existed and then I discovered this guy in Washington, D.C. called Jim Tucker, big Jim Tucker who dedicated his life to tracking down the Bilderberg group. So I hooked up with him. He had a lead that they were meeting in Portugal and so we flew to Portugal and just immediately we started getting chased by mysterious men in dark glasses, which was terrifying, as you can imagine.

GLENN: Okay. But you didn't, you still didn't believe in any of this stuff. Did you --

RONSON: By the time I started getting chased by these men in dark glasses, I began to believe and I completely freaked out.

GLENN: This is where the title -- this is where the title -- I'm sorry. This is where the title of the book came from. Was it at this point where your friend, "You know what, these things I don't believe but these things are starting -- and they said, you're starting to sound like "Them."

RONSON: Yeah, this was a guy who was suffering from throat cancer and he had his voice box removed. So he had to write everything down. And he wrote down, we were getting chased and playing poker in north London and said, it's all true, the conspiracy theorists are on to something. And he wrote down, you are sounding like one of them, wrote "Them" in huge letters and I thought, that's what I'll call the book.

GLENN: But things have changed and I want you that talk about your experience at the Bohemian Grove and the article you wrote for Fusion magazine.

RONSON: Sure.

GLENN: And then I want to talk to you about the new conspiracies that are coming and how people who are so -- like you found in London, we're finding here in the United States where southern extreme right wing secessionists in the South are uniting with extreme left wing secessionists in the north.

RONSON: Yes.

GLENN: And they're both saying enough of America.

RONSON: Yes.

GLENN: And there's enough of this, you know, 10% here, 5% here, 15% here of these groups that are all starting to unite and say, you know what, we should unite because we don't agree with what you say. But you know what? We agree on this thing that this just has to end. And it's starting to get really frightening.

RONSON: I agree. You know, when I wrote "Them," conspiracy theorists were still kind of, you know, minority who would live on the fringes of society and, you know, I sort of point out in "Them" that a lot of terrorists and extremists are also conspiracy theorists and if you would like, it was a piece of information that people just didn't realize. But now, post 9/11.

GLENN: It's getting worse now.

RONSON: Yeah. You know, I heard the University of Ohio did a study where they determined that I think 36% of the American public believe that 9/11 was an inside job?

GLENN: Oh, yeah. You have -- there's a study out that I reported on because Barack Obama's preacher was saying that Americans started AIDS, the CIA started AIDS and give it to African-Americans as mass genocide.

RONSON: Right.

GLENN: And I think it's 53% of African-Americans in this survey claim that part of that is true and that there is a cure for cancer but it's being held back by the rich -- I'm sorry, not a cure for cancer. Cure for AIDS but is being held back by the Government because they want the poor to all die. It's amazing.

RONSON: Right, right. Because, you know --

GLENN: Jon, I tell you what, hang on just a second. I have to take a commercial break and we'll come back. Jon Ron son is the author of "Them" and an article on the Bohemian Grove. You'll laugh out loud and you'll learn an awful lot as well. It is in Fusion magazine and you can get it at 888-Glenn-Beck or go online and order it now.

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?"

President Joe Biden just had the worst-rated week in the entire first year of his presidency, but his latest poll numbers are the icing on the cake, Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck on the radio program.

Given that polls aren’t always correct, O’Reilly explained another way to prove that Biden's first year may be worse than any other president's before him: It’s impossible to name one single contribution Biden has made to move America forward.

"Biden: There isn't anything you can point to. Not one thing ... that he's done to improve the nation. That's the test. You just step back, take emotion out of it, politics out of it, and say, give me one thing that Joe Biden has done to improve the country. Just one. And you can't do it," O'Reilly said. "And if there is, I want your listeners to contact me at BillO'Reilly.com."
