Glenn Beck: Oscar buzz (zzz)

GLENN: Now I'm a little sleepy today because I was up for the Oscars. I, I can't ‑‑

PAT: Man, I was watching them until 12:30 last night.

GLENN: I watched until ‑‑

PAT: Hoping they would come back for an encore but they didn't.

GLENN: They didn't. I stayed up, too.

PAT: Hacked me off.

GLENN: I couldn't go to bet.

PAT: No.

GLENN: Without nothing who was going to win.

PAT: After that, The Hurt Locker won, you know. So ‑‑

GLENN: I didn't watch a second of them. I don't care. I just have to point out that this is what I tweeted last night because I went upstairs and I was doing some reading and everything and I got online and I saw, oh, it's raining, what was it on the Drudge? Rain in Hollywood. And I'm like, oh, it's raining on their parade. And then, you know, I saw that the best picture, is it going to be Avatar or Hurt Locker? So this is what I tweeted last night. I tweeted, oh, Hollywood, what to do, what to do? An anti‑U.S. human movie versus an anti‑U.S. troops movie. My guess is Hollywood goes with the anti‑U.S. troops movie because the other movie made too much profit.

STU: That's right. You want to take the failure.

GLENN: Hurt Locker.

PAT: You are exactly right.

STU: The financial failure of people that aren't artists don't understand.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: That's got to be the choice.

GLENN: Who doesn't want to see Hurt Locker seriously? I mean, besides everybody in America and quite possibly the planet and everybody who's also blue on other planets.

PAT: I watched it four times last night.

STU: Did you really? I'm sure it might be very well done and everything but again, do we really need more antiwar movies?

GLENN: I think we got the point from Hollywood.

STU: I don't think it's possible.

GLENN: Just run the other ones that we haven't watched. Just rename them. We won't go to that one, either.

PAT: How do we know they didn't do that with this? They might have.

GLENN: They could have.

PAT: This might actually be that Tom Cruise movie that failed so badly.

GLENN: I don't know.

PAT: I don't know.

GLENN: It could be. I'm looking forward to it. Now, I did see two movies this weekend. I haven't gone to the movie theater in a long time. I saw two movies this week even. I saw ‑‑ oh, jeez. I don't even know it was a Roman Polanski movie. I was the guy, if you were at the movie theater and it said at the very end, directed by Roman Polanski and you heard a guy go, oh, jeez, that was me.

STU: Glenn Beck supports child molesters.

GLENN: Yeah, I didn't even, I didn't know it was a Roman Polanski movie until then and I saw that and I went, oh, jeez.

STU: You didn't know. That's the excuse of the day, is it, sir?

GLENN: Yeah, it is. It's great.

STU: What movie was it?

GLENN: I don't want to ‑‑

STU: So I can know what one not to go to.

GLENN: Ghost Rider. Ghost Rider. It was great.

STU: Yeah, won't be supporting Roman. I don't care if it's the greatest movie ever created.

GLENN: You've got it in some sort of pirate bootlegged, something like that. I don't know if I bought kiddie porn or what's going to happen now, but it was a great movie. And then the other one I saw was Alice in Wonderland? Classic. That is ‑‑

STU: I can't believe how much money that made.

GLENN: Wizard of Oz classic.

PAT: $116 million, I think?

STU: Yeah.


GLENN: Did you see it?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Did you agree?

PAT: Yes. You know, I'm not a big fan of the ‑‑ I'm not a big fan of the story itself.

GLENN: Neither am I. I thought it actually worked this time. That was the closest I've ever thought that worked.

PAT: Yeah. They did it well. It's really well done.

GLENN: Really well done.

PAT: It was really good.

GLENN: I like Tim Burton but I've never thought he had a commercial hit. I've never looked at Tim Burton and said, oh, that's going to be a great, you know, that, oh, that was a great show, everybody will love it. I always like his vision, but I always think he misses heart. He never connects with the heart. This one he did. It's great.

PAT: Did you see, what was that other one? The Corpse Bride was kind of a hard movie.

GLENN: Oh, I didn't see that one.

PAT: Did you see that one? You might like that one.

GLENN: Oh, yeah, yeah, I did see that one. No, I still thought he missed it.

PAT: Did you?

GLENN: I thought it was close, but he always misses it.

STU: He's had a lot of huge hit movies.

PAT: He has.

GLENN: No, no, but he's never ‑‑ I mean, if you are a fan of Tim Burton, you probably know what I mean. He's ‑‑ I thought the closest he ever came to it was Edward Scissorhands.

STU: All of his movies are Edward Scissorhands, though. All of them are the same.

PAT: They are dark.

GLENN: Yeah, they are. But they don't usually, they just miss the heart just by this much. They just are just slightly off. And ‑‑ but he's ‑‑

PAT: This one had it, though. He did.

GLENN: Oh, it was great.

PAT: Johnny Depp is a tremendous actor.

GLENN: He is the best actor I think of our generation.

PAT: Probably is.

STU: Really?

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: I don't know.

PAT: It's really good.

GLENN: I hated Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory.

STU: Terrible job with that, and that was Tim Burton, too.

PAT: Was that Tim Burton?

GLENN: Yeah, yeah.

PAT: It was awful.

GLENN: Awful. I couldn't get past, all I wanted to think of the whole time during Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was, hee, hee.

PAT: Oh, Michael Jackson?

GLENN: Michael Jackson chocolate factory.

STU: That is the story. It's a creepy story. But it's a great movie.

GLENN: No, it was creepier.

STU: There's nobody creepier than Gene Wilder in that movie.

GLENN: Oh, no.

STU: That is one of the creepiest roles.

GLENN: Gene Wilder, you never thought about him saying, hey, let's go to the fizzy lift area and maybe you and I... you never thought of that.

STU: I thought of him as bizarrely asexual in that movie.

GLENN: What did you say?

STU: In Gene Wilder. Like he was so weird that the thought of sex had never crossed his mind in his entire life. He could have been a Roman Polanski ‑‑

GLENN: No, it was Michael Jackson.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: I thought he felt like Michael Jackson. Not that I know what Michael Jackson feels like. You know what I mean?

STU: You mean the Peter Pan Michael Jackson or the Peter Pan Michael Jackson? You know what I mean? Like the one that maybe ‑‑

GLENN: What is the difference between Peter ‑‑

PAT: That's horrifying. I don't know what you're saying.

STU: There was the Peter Pan that the sort of ‑‑

PAT: Stu?

STU: Like, he didn't care, he just really loved children? Or that he loved the children?

GLENN: Oh, no, he loved the children.

STU: That's what I'm saying. I never got that from Wilder.

GLENN: Love was a verb, yeah. And I didn't get that from Gene Wilder, you are right. I did get it from Johnny Depp.

STU: Creepy.

GLENN: But this one is great. This one's great. You'll love this.

STU: How ‑‑ this is the biggest, what, biggest opening of all time? Or biggest 3‑D of all time?

PAT: Biggest 3‑D of all time. Biggest march ‑‑

GLENN: Can we stop with the 3‑D thing?

STU: Avatar's the biggest movie of all time and had a bigger opening. But that's pretty significant.

PAT: It won't in the long run but probably, yes, the first night.

GLENN: I don't know, man. I would take my kids to this. You know what?

PAT: It's the biggest movie ever released with the name Alice in the title by far: By far.

STU: Bigger than the Diner series?

PAT: Yes, yes.

GLENN: The ‑‑ I think this has legs to it. I think this is ‑‑ I think this is like Wizard of Oz. This is as classic ‑‑

PAT: You think it might beat Avatar?

GLENN: No.

PAT: It won't beat Avatar.

GLENN: Avatar is PG, or PG‑13.

PAT: And it's over $700 million now, 780 or something? It's ridiculous.

GLENN: I don't know. I was busy watching The Hurt Locker, me and those four other people watching The Hurt Locker. What a stupid ‑‑ did anybody watch ‑‑ did anybody watch the Oscars last night?

STU: I watched a little bit of it, enough to see Kathy Ireland attempt to do interviews which was one of the ‑‑ she's a beautiful woman. Not good at the job she's chosen, been chosen for.

GLENN: They were showing, they were showing some ‑‑ I heard some talk over the weekend, you know, Hollywood is worried if anybody's going to watch the Oscars. Nobody cares. Nobody cares. The only reason to watch the Oscars is to make fun of Hollywood and how out of touch they are. The Hurt Locker? You've got to be kidding me. When everybody's talking about ‑‑ now, I haven't seen Avatar. I just, I have a hard time going for the whole, you know ‑‑

PAT: Anti‑U.S. human thing.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah, yeah. And I think I can go for the anti ‑‑ like I won't see The Hurt Locker because I can't do anti‑U.S. troop thing. Anti‑U.S. human thing I'm just like, whatever. You know, for instance, the movie I saw with, you know, directed by the child molester.

STU: The ghost rider?

GLENN: Ghost rider, you know, it was anti‑waterboarding, it was anti‑CIA, anti‑American. I'm like, whatever.

STU: That just, a lot of that stuff just rolls off the shoulders at this point.

GLENN: Yeah. You are just like, "Of course it is."

PAT: Because every movie is.

GLENN: Every movie.

PAT: Nearly. Not ‑‑

GLENN: I mean, is there anything ‑‑ when do we start to get ‑‑ I think there should be another Hollywood. I think that you could really ‑‑ seriously I think you could get ‑‑ what's the guy's name from Walden Pond that made the Narnia series? What's his name? Anschutz, Phil Anschutz, the guy who said ‑‑ you don't know him? Very, very wealthy, powerful guy who just said, you know, I'm tired of movies always being crap and not having any values. And so I started Walden, is it Walden Media or Walden Pond? Walden Media. And it's made a lot of movies including the Narnia series, really well done movies. I mean, I don't know why there are not more of those. I think if more companies came out and said, hey, we're not going to insult or assault your values or the country, you are not going to have big huge blockbuster global stuff but you'll at least be ‑‑ there are people out there that want good movies that don't suck that, you know, don't assault your values. For instance, Blind Side with what's her name?

STU: Sandra Bullock.

GLENN: Sandra Bullock. She didn't win, did she?

PAT: No, she did.

GLENN: Did she really?

PAT: She really did, yeah.

GLENN: Wait a minute. She was a conservative Christian woman.

PAT: I know.

GLENN: That's unbelievable.

STU: But only in a sea of conservative Christian racists. She overcame the typical conservative racist to ‑‑ she was the only one. All of her friends couldn't believe they would allow a black man into the house. But she overcame it. So she gets the Oscar.

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?"

Iversen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to discuss what The Great Reset is and how YOU can help stop it. Watch the video clip from "The Glenn Beck Program" below:

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."
