U.S. Americans



GLENN: I want to go over this, the beauty queen, the teen beauty queen. I feel bad for her quite honestly. Her name is Lauren Upton and she was on -- she's Miss Teen South Carolina and I guess she was on Miss Teen USA with Mario Lopez. And Stu, for those who -- I'm going to pretend I don't know who Mario Lopez is.

STU: Who's going to believe that you don't know?

GLENN: Is that Jennifer Lopez's brother?

STU: I don't think so.

GLENN: Husband, ex-husband?

STU: What if they just weren't related at all?

GLENN: Weren't related at all?

STU: Yes. What if they just weren't related at all?

GLENN: I don't know.

STU: Like you are doing a really good job acting like you don't know who he is here because you are just throwing out random possibilities.

GLENN: Well, I'm confused.

STU: Right. You're acting like you're confused.

GLENN: Is he one of the Mario brothers?

STU: No, I think you're --

GLENN: Anyway, who is he?

STU: He is the guy, he played on Saved By the Bell. A. C. Slater, Saved By the Bell, Glenn.

DAN: You never watched Saved By the Bell every day.

STU: You are faking that position.

GLENN: So Mario Lopez asked this question on Miss Teen USA and is the question included? Here it is. Listen to this. I warn you, I'm going to have to stop it halfway through her answer, maybe several times through her answer because you are not going to be able to take it. Your head's going to hurt. You're going to be so embarrassed.

DAN: Well, Glenn, also in here, too, is kind of, he sets up what this means, this part of it. So you really get into the moment here. Just the pressure that Miss Carolina --

GLENN: I feel bad for her because it is a lot of pressure. It is a lot of pressure and you can see anybody just crumbling on it, but good heavens, here it is.

SPEAKER: That is the round of competition that ultimately determines their fate. The "Make it or break it" moment. The ladies will have to demonstrate their ability to answer a thought-provoking final question. Sound simple? Easier said than done, especially when the whole country is watching. Here's how it works. Our panel of judges have prepared their own questions. So now we will ask each finalist to pick the name of the judge, who will then ask a final question. Ladies, you'll have 30 seconds before you hear the sound of this bell (bell sounding.) Good luck. We begin with South Carolina. (Applause)

SLATER: Hello, South Carolina, please pick out the name of the judge. Thank you. Judge Number 5, Amy Teegarden.

JUDGE NO. 5: Recent polls have shown a fifth of Americans can't locate the U.S. on a world map.

GLENN: Stop. A fifth of Americans can't locate the U.S. on a map. That is -- Stu, I want you to look that up.

STU: Yeah, I don't believe that.

GLENN: That is incredible if that's true.

STU: Yeah, you can convince me that they can't place states, you can convince me they can't find Iraq or the U.K.

GLENN: How do you not find America on a map?

STU: Just, I don't see how that can be.

GLENN: Home schooling. I'm just saying. I mean, how is that possible? Well, if you don't believe it, here comes the answer.

VOICE: Why do you think this is?

VOICE: I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so --

GLENN: Stop. Stop, stop. She personally believes that U.S. Americans? Okay, I won't nitpick. So U.S. Americans can't do it because -- this is what she personally believes. Because...

VOICE: Miss South Carolina: Because some people out there in our nation don't have maps and --

A scene from the Miss Teen USA 2007 competition.

GLENN: Stop. (Laughing). So some people don't have maps and you can think to yourself, okay, she's going for a poverty thing. Some people just -- some people are so poor in this country, they can't afford maps, and we need the Government to provide maps for every child in America so they can locate America on a map. No, no, that's not what she decided to do. Instead she went this route.

VOICE: Miss South Carolina: And that I believe that our education such as South Africa and Iraq, everywhere like such as, and I believe that they should -- our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S. -- or should help South Africa and should help Iraq and the Asian countries. So we will be able to build up our future for our children.

VOICE: Thank you very much, South Carolina.

STU: That's a great response: Thank you very much. What else do you say? What else do you do after that?

GLENN: What do you say? And you know what it was? She was bound and determined, she was trying to do what politicians do. No matter what they ask you, no matter what they ask you, you get in South Africa and Iraq. That's what she's doing.

STU: That's great.

GLENN: Those are the two politically correct things to do. You just -- I'm worried about the children in Iraq, I'm worried about this war. You look deep, go for a depth charge. I'm worried about South Africa, whatever I have to say about South Africa. I'm from South Carolina; I'm not racist. I care about South Africa, okay? So that was the advice. I can guarantee that was the advice: Just work them, no matter what they ask you, just go for this. You just have to say this.

So why don't they have maps? Because a lot of people can't afford maps, but that's why we should have education to help people in South Africa and Iraq.

STU: What? I feel terrible for her, though. Because this is like the big, you know, youtube. Can you put this in the news letter today, Dan?

DAN: Oh, yes.

GLENN: Oh, no. I feel bad, I do.

STU: You need to see it, though.

GLENN: She's a teenager. I feel bad for her.

STU: They're legitimately pressured.

DAN: This is the American Idol thing. You guys said you don't feel bad. She's putting herself out there.


GLENN: You don't have to -- she's going to be Owen Wilson by the end of the evening.

STU: No, no. I mean, look. It's a bad moment for her but I'm sure she has a lot of stuff going, going on in her -- her life is going to turn out good, I think. I think she's going to -- I think it's all going to turn around.

>> Miss South Carolina: I believe that they should --

GLENN: Do you believe that, Stu?

STU: I firmly believe she's got a shot at possibly --

GLENN: What I really believe is, and that's another thing, they said start with what you really believe. She's bluffing when she says, I firmly believe, she's thinking, what do I believe, what do I believe, how do I work in South Africa? Maps, maps, nobody told me that there would be a map question. I firmly believe... that nobody told me there would be a map question? That nobody... Africa. Good night, everybody.


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."
