GLENN: From Radio City in Midtown Manhattan, third most listened to show in all of America. Hello, you sick twisted freak. Welcome to the program. I'm going to talk to you a little bit about Sarah Palin, and I hope that I hope that we're now seeing the Sarah Palin that is the Sarah Palin that now gets it. I think it takes you a while to get the press. I think and maybe it's just me, but I've come to New York and to the press and you've seen it. I mean recently. We just did a deal with Time magazine last week and we had worked with them for three weeks on something and they completely misrepresented themselves. Oh, they were, oh, our best buddies. "Oh, yeah." And then they just hatchet us to death. And so you just don't think I saw about it this weekend when I saw that story come out in Time and I thought, how do these people sleep at night? You just don't want to go into it thinking that so many people in the media are just bad people, but I think they are. Not everybody, but I think a lot of them are. They don't care. They will do anything t hey have to for their side to win. I just want the truth and I thought that's what they were into. And so I think Sarah Palin came into this just, it's a different world here in Manhattan and it's a different world in Washington. And I don't mean the regular people. The people in New York get a bad rap. People in New York are just like everybody else. The elites in New York, left and right, they're a freak show and the elites in the media. It's the same thing. Freak show. I think when Sarah Palin first got into it, she was a little like I have been. You know, people are good. People are generally good. No, you know, I know that the, you know, Washington is broken but, no, no. No, no, it's beyond broken. It's a cesspool. It needs to be restored, not just I mean, it needs all the pieces need to be taken out and everything needs to be wiped down and sanitized and then we put new pieces in. That's what has to happen. And I don't think she really understood that. I think she was steam rolled by the McCain campaign and didn't see that one coming. I think the McCain campaign and I have nothing I'm basing this on other than my own gut. I think the McCain campaign used her and despised her at the same time. And I also believe that the Republicans do not like Sarah Palin as much as the Democrats don't. Now, not all of them because there's some Democrats in there that or some Republicans in there that are like, yeah, we need a good housecleaning, we need somebody who can, you know, just restore this thing the way it should be. But anybody who plays the game hates Sarah Palin. Any of the elites like David Letterman hate Sarah Palin. Because, what, she's a soccer mom, she goes hunting, she's playing with her kids. What? Don't you have some help to do that? She's probably smells like baby vomit. You know, that kind of a thing. That's where David Letterman is. They all sit around and at cocktail parties and they all... so now I'm hoping that this is the new Sarah Palin because I don't know if anybody has really truly talked about how Sarah Palin eviscerated David Letterman, eviscerated him. She took a scalpel and cut his heart out. It was still beating in her hand when he was like, "You know, and another thing about how stupid and slutty you are..." he didn't even see it coming. And the reason why I say she eviscerated it, it's one thing to say, hey, don't make fun of my daughter, which she's completely in the right to do. I mean, where was the when the press started asking Barack Obama and taking pictures and he was like, "Hey, back off. It's my private time with my kids." Nobody invades that. Do you know they are closing down streets now every time his daughters go back in the backyard and play? Do you know that? They close the street. Do I have a problem with that? No. None at all. Leave the children alone. I don't want those kids growing up to be in a zoo where people are watching them or some freak is out there with a camera. And when I say freak, I mean paparazzi or anything. Don't leave kids out of it. But that's not what she did. The one thing that could be said about David Letterman that I believe all of us know to be true is and we don't know this. You never know, but I think it's a pretty good guess. He is not a pervert. He is not preying on your children. Stu is looking at me like, well, we don't have evidence of that. Do you think he is looking at pictures of 14 year olds?

STU: I mean, I have no reason to believe that.

GLENN: Correct.

STU: But I have no reason to not believe that.

GLENN: Correct, correct, correct. But if we're going to be the typical people that we are and that Sarah Palin is, you'd have no reason to believe that David Letterman is looking at, you know, bad pictures of 14 year olds.

STU: Right. He's not a criminal in this. Most likely with David Letterman was he didn't even know.

STU: I don't know that you can say that's most likely. I don't think I can give you most likely.

GLENN: Highly likely?

STU: I would say no, I would not say most likely. I would say it's possible. It's possible he didn't know.

GLENN: What you know about David Letterman, he is a bad human being. He is just not nobody likes working with him.

STU: I've heard that, yes. From many people.

GLENN: From many, many people. Not a decent human being.

STU: But I mean, that's hearsay. I've heard it from people who

GLENN: From people who worked with him for a very long time.

STU: Wasn't my first

GLENN: Okay. So the hearsay is bad guy, really a nasty dude. And also the comedy writing scenario over there is everybody just passes notes, nobody's in a room working together. There is no talking there. It's a nasty situation. You get the cards to him. He reads them in rehearsal and that's it. So it's not like he was sitting around going, "Hey, you know what will be funny is if..." he most likely it was written he saw it in the monologue prompter and it was like, "Okay, fine." Whether he knew it was the 14 year old daughter or not, and this so you know, this point is really meaningless because, "Oh, so it was the daughter that was four years older? Sure, she's legal but still it's a 14 year old daughter."

STU: Again I won't give you most likely on that. I think there's a very significant chance that he believed it would be funny because it's Sarah Palin and he hates her that it would be funny to say, you know what, his whole family is a bunch of sluts. I do think that he would think that.

GLENN: And, you know, he wasn't necessarily envisioning the 14 year old. It was just

STU: Again I

GLENN: Okay, all right, I'll give that to you, that's fine. I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Either way it doesn't excuse it. But what she did is she came out and instead of saying leave my daughters alone, she immediately went for something that is a scalpel, which is you're a dirty old man, a 60 year old making saying sexual comments about a 14 year old. Immediately galvanized against David Letterman, immediately. There's no ifs, ands or buts about it. It's just need Galvanization.

STU: There's no doubt about who won that battle.

GLENN: She did, his beating heart. Yeah, well, you're just a slutty... and didn't even see it being taken out of his chest. And he was so slow, he didn't even see it coming out of his chest the next day and that's where he really went wrong. I think if he would have said, Sarah Palin, you know, we make fun of everybody, I certainly didn't know it was your 14 year old daughter and it was probably over the line even if it wasn't your 14 year old daughter, and I apologize. I think America would have forgiven him. I think America would forgive him.

STU: Again it's possible to make a mistake. That's what makes you think maybe it wasn't, especially when you put a picture up there.

GLENN: And I'm torn on this because I don't want a joke czar.

STU: No.

GLENN: I don't want a joke czar.

STU: Nope.

GLENN: I don't want anybody telling people what they can and can't say, I don't want David Letterman fired for it. I don't want boycotts of David Letterman. I would, however, like a little bit of consistency from CBS. They fired Don Imus over a comment that he made about a comment about a basketball team, you don't know the specifics of anybody and that was the worst thing that anybody has ever said at any time including, kill them all and let God sort them out. It was the worst thing uttered ever. And David Letterman says this about a specific family with a picture, and CBS signs him to a new contract. Now, what Sarah Palin has done is she has demonstrated only to those who care to see and nobody in the mainstream media will see. She has demonstrated, "Oh, really? I could play that game, too." She just took out a comedian. Now, unlike with the with Al Sharpton who pickets and then all of a sudden they find themselves out of a job, I don't agree with that. I don't agree with picketing and then the company fires them and everything else. That kind of pressure is wrong. You've let the people vote with the ratings, and they are going to do that. You mark my words. David Letterman has made a has staked out a position here that unless he changes courses, he is going to be, well, at CBS. He is going to be Katie Couric. They are going to be perfect bookends for the CBS lineup. Katie Couric, all the liberals love her. All the people in these people's circle are on, you got it, Dave, you took her out. You stand strong, Dave. All the regular people, A, don't want you to treat her that way, even if they disagree with her. You don't treat somebody like that.

When Biden was given the keys to the Oval Office in January 2021, gas was $2.50 a gallon and the inflation rate was 1.4%. Today gas is at $3.32 a gallon and the inflation rate is at 7% ... and STILL RISING. These are just 12 months of numbers, but we’re clearly in a worrying decline. While the economy has opened up more post-COVID, it’s not just getting worse — we’re going IN REVERSE.

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard (and the very top of his studio ceiling) to explain what’s happening to inflation and why it’s so hard for your family to afford basic goods and groceries. It’s not “corporate greed,” as Democrats have been telling you. The Biden administration wants to continue to spend trillions of dollars to “reinvent capitalism,” but that’s in addition to the trillions that are being pumped out IN THE SHADOWS.

Glenn exposes what the Fed has been doing behind closed doors and shows us the tidal wave that’s about to hit. He’s looked at the numbers, and they're frightening. Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” gives advice to Americans who want to protect their checking and savings accounts before it’s too late.

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.
