Let's do something worthy of remembering

Tania and I just watched ‘The Blacklist’. James Spader is genius. One of my all time favorite bad guys. There is no one that can play that role like him. I have loved him since two days in the valley. He and Shatner were brilliant in ‘Boston Legal’. Brilliant again in this series.

I am trying to "escape" from time to time from all that is happening by watching movies and TV.

Yet, the insanity is dragged in to our escape.

Why can't we make TV this compelling without the real dark streak? What is it about us that is attracted to this? Are we? Or is this just where the best talent is? If so, why?

I want to share something's with you over the next few months. Some struggles and better yet: some ideas. Maybe you will agree and want to join me, maybe not. Sometimes I really don't know anymore.

The more I learn, the more I realize how ignorant I am and how much of it has been self-imposed over my whole life.

I don't know if we are on the same page. Are you overwhelmed? With everything. There is no escape.

I read the news. Heck, I saw most of what is here coming. I did my best to warn. To point to exits, but too many were asleep. They still are. So now what?

Wait for the beheadings? The riots all over the world, the pictures of our troops trying their best to help the poor Ebola victims, the cost of food or gas, the homework from our kids or the trash on air?

I can't fix this stuff. Neither can you. Hopeless?

No. We are just talking about the wrong stuff. We are talking about the problems. We need to talk about the solutions. That is where our frustration is coming from. We all are ready to get back to work and fix things.

People want me to still talk about the news and what is coming. I have already told you and you certainly don't need me to tell you. First off, I may be wrong.

But, you feel it in your gut.

Something is coming. The whole world is about to change. But it doesn't have to be bad! The world needs to change. What we are all doing now doesn't work.

It is time to prepare in a new way. Prepare to be the tip of the spear of light and honor, courage, healing and decency.

Isn't this something we can all get behind? It doesn't matter how you vote, what color your skin is or how big or small your bank account is. We are all human. We all have a stake in the future and we all want to be a part of something good.

Reading posts from some of "my fans" you are left with the impression that I am a sell out, or a traitor or maybe even just a "Mormon hypnotist". I love that last one, I read it tonight. It made me laugh out loud.

First off: These posts do not come from my fans. My fans are good, decent people. We may not agree on everything but I know them, they treat people right and stand up against bullies.

America needs to understand one thing if we are going to have a dialogue. Trolls live on left, right and middle. As Frank Sinatra said "some people get their kicks stomping on a dream". But those people are a very small minority. But vocal. Studies show only .5% of any audience actually posts comments. Most of us read them on all news, information even entertainment sights and think "who are all these people?"

The goal whether they even know it or not, is to get us to stop talking, stop sharing and stop believing in one another.

It is a lie, we read them and we begin to believe that they are the majority and we are the loners. Good and decent people are in the majority. Those who hate are in the minority. Those who want violence and revolution are in the vast, vast minority weather they be from Occupy Wall Street, jihadists or "patriots."

I don't ask you to trust me. You don't have to believe in me. Just believe in yourself and believe in your neighbors.

I ask you to do your own homework and think. You don't like me, don't agree with me, or think that I am on the wrong side of the issues that is fine with me. It is what has always made our country great. Everyone had an opinion and no one was forced to step in line.

I believe my calling now is to repair any damage that I may have done unintentionally. To work toward reconciliation. Many don't agree with me and that is okay. Please work on what you believe in. We need to all be working on a million different solutions. If I don't like yours -- cool. But unless it involves violence go for it. Maybe I fail but you don't. Celebrate, we all win!

It is why I built TheBlaze. They will report on the news. They will help other news agencies if called upon and we will do our best to tell the stories that America needs to hear for the record. I will also continue to piece things together when I can help explain WHY something is happening. (See the show I did on Sykes - Picot and ISIL last week).

But there is something else I must do as well. I feel a strong pull toward standing firm in what I believe. But making sure that what I believe and what I share is rooted in the highest possible principles. It is too late to solve many of our issues. The system is going to reset because it must. So what is the use arguing about policies when it is our principles that will actually be our life boat and our second chance?

Sometimes it is all so overwhelming. I am not the man He needs me to be. None of us are. Yet, here we are.

I think we all want to go back. Not to the "good old days" but to the days where we were a bit more innocent or naive.

I really just want to go back to a time where we all believed that generally we all wanted the same things. Peace, decency, fairness, honesty and a chance to forgive others and ourselves. To start again and chart our own course using common sense and self-responsibility.

The "good old days" weren't that good. In fact many of them really sucked.

But we were different.

WE BELIEVED.

We believed we could change the world, we believed things would be better for our kids, that God lives, he cares and we should serve him by serving others and we really did believe that the good guys win.

Everything about today screams at us that we should abandon those beliefs. It is why we tune out.

Think. Those who told us to tune out and turn on in the 1960s, are those now running the world. They no longer tell us that. They just shape policies, business, news and entertainment to get us to do so. And even when we do, our "escape" is often to dark places written by those who also no longer believe.

The blind leading the blind.

I just want to go back to something normal. I just want all this hate and fear to stop. We all do. Right? So why don't we? Who really is in control?

Cheyenne (my 8 year old) asked me what unalienable meant this morning on the way to church. I explained, "that there are some things that were given to us by God and no one can ever, ever take them away. They are unchangeable." (Rights)

Why are we allowing our right to believe in a better tomorrow be taken from us? More precisely, Is it taken or are we all just giving it away? Unalienable. We are the one doing the damage. We are letting our belief slip away while we blame it on someone or something else.

I am sorry, I am thinking out loud. I have a tough week ahead as do you I am sure.

If you have lost hope tonight, borrow some of mine for a while. Take care of it, nurture it and grow it because there may come a time when I will need it returned. But tonight, I am strong enough to shout from my rood top: "I still know that the good guys win. I believe things can and will get better. I believe in God and I believe the best way to serve Him is to serve our fellow man."

Tomorrow, let's have fun. Let's find something worth living for. Let's find something we are excited to tell our spouse and children about. Let's do something worthy of remembering.

Goodnight America. See you in the morning. In the meantime: Dream big.

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.

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.
