Glenn: I have been haunted by and have pondered two things today

On Police officers and the Hobbit.

I have been haunted by and have pondered two things today.

The first is the shootings of our police officers in NYC. I have been in the mountains so you would know better than I but, where was the presidents address on this? Has he said, they could have been my son? These were good men and justice must be served? More importantly, has the press made the same kind of hay and noise for these men as they did for those who's names were made famous by Al sharpton?

I remember saying on radio in 2006:

"there will come a time where everything will be upside down. What you thought you knew, you will not, liquid - solid and up will be down. You will not recognize your country."

Are we there yet? Is this the end or just another phase just as the dark days of the communist black lists in the fifties or the watts riots or la riots were?

Martin Luther King was right. If you put good and evil side by side and let the American people see them both, they will always choose good.

When a truck driver was beaten almost to death in LA in the 90s it was normal people that saw it on tv and went to help.

I still believe we are these people.

But the problem is that we are not allowed to call good by its name and the same with evil. We have been trained for so long not to judge that we have lost our ability to do so. All choices are NOT equal. All cultures are not the same.

If you really believe that take your daughter and your gay and Christian friends and move to Saudi Arabia. They are friends right? They are just as good as we are right?

If you want people who care about the planet as much as we do, take your Eco minded friends and move to china. Bath in their rivers, breath deeply the air and speak common sense and responsibility to their factory owners. Reason with their government about how to treat workers with fairness and dignity. It is an equal if not better system right?

You want great cops? Move 5 miles south of the American border. There is where you will find justice, protection of the innocent and fairness.

Freedom of speech? Move to putin's Russia. He is also great on no war for oil.

By the way, I for one am glad that we have opened Cuba up for travel. Now we can all see first hand just how great cubas health care really is. Now we can all go and experience first hand the beauty of the system proclaimed as better than ours for so long.

Who are you to judge? Who are you to say? What truth? Who's truth?

There is but one truth. It is universal and eternal. It is based on love, compassion and hard evidence. It is our job to seek it and hold fast to it. It requires us to question with boldness and to speak without fear.

If fear is given in lieu of answers, you know there is not much truth to be found. We must seek, ask and knock and in the end when our knock is answered we must be bold in declaring what we have found.

It is not just our right to judge - it is our duty!

When people march in the streets chanting "what do we want? Dead cops! When do we want them? Now!" We have a duty to stand against them and call what they are doing by name: Evil.

The same needs to be said for anyone that prosecute, persecute or discriminate based on race, nationality or creed. What the heck, let's add in sex, weight, sexual preferences - VOTING HABITS, religious affiliation, or whether they believe in the constitution or not.

"I have a dream! That man will be judged by the content of his character".

Is that dream still alive?

The answer is YES! You see the problem is, not that people see evil, it is that no one is showing them good side by side.

Where are the rallies, preachers, school children, parents, business' and communities that will link arms and speak the truth without fear?

Where are the honest reporters, artists, film makers, musicians, radio hosts, writers and teachers?

They are here. They are just silent. We are silent.

Some are afraid. Some are just tired. Some just have stopped believing that they can make a difference. People have begun to believe that nothing they do makes a difference.

They are tired. Broke. Drunk, high, arrogant, foolish or Hungry. Some are Depressed. Lonely. Some don't know what to do. Some are living in self imposed ignorance.

Most are waiting for a leader. Where is the image of good juxtaposed against the image of evil?

Our cops are good people. They are just like you. They reflect our communities. If we are good, so are they. Generally speaking.

Are their bad cops? Yes. Let's work to root them out, not to condemn them all. The cops I know are good. I have however, met a few arrogant ones. We all have. People are people whether they are cops or 7.11 clerks.

*By the way, how is the gun control argument working out for those who think the cops are bad? It is funny how much history repeats itself. It was the democratic southern politician during reconstruction that took the guns from blacks. The rest of the story is infamous. Now the democrats AND republicans would take our guns from us should we let them "for our protection".

Let's begin to trust one another. Let's begin to be responsible and love one another.

Can we begin to expect the best from each other again? Can we not jump to conclusions and immediately say that the cops acted stupidly before all the facts are in?

When the cop is bad, let's name him and make sure justice is served. When the guy who was shot was bad, let's make sure we name him with the facts.

Common sense.

I am sorry ... This isn't what I really wanted to say. tonight.

The other thing that has haunted me is the story line of The Lord of the rings and the two towers. I love this story. I have never watched all of the movies back to back until this last week. I love it even more.

Maybe it is just me, but has anyone thought of the hobbits as us, the Americans? Maybe this has been written about and I am being obvious, but I see their innocence, belief that the world isn't bad, that things will be better, that the "shire" is a special place and it is isolated and protected from the outside evils and I wonder, did JRR T see them as us?

If you buy in to my observation at all, are we still those people? I do not think so. We are sliding into a world that I do not think makes us stronger. Have we lost the innocence and trust that has always set us apart?

Out of all of the characters in that book, ask yourself, who do you most admire? Who would you most want to be or be around?

For me it is Sam. Frodo's companion. He is loyal, kind, compassionate, trustworthy, humble and protective. I am sure there is some kind of test on who you are in the hobbit and what that says about you. I think if the world had more hobbits like Frodo's and Sam our "Shire" would always be nearing spring..

None of us want to face the things that we must, none want to be the one selected to bear the burden of the ring. But we must. It is our lot in life and if we fail all may be lost. But if we just do what is right, keep our mind on those things that are important we just might change the world and beat all of the odds.

Let us be innocent. Let us approach life not as fools or the blind, but like children. ... Or hobbits. With wonder, hope, faith, love, friendship and loyalty to the truth and the task at hand.

Who will you be? Who will you wait for? What will you tolerate? What, with your silence will you teach your children to embrace?

Our kids see our actions JUST AS MUCH AS THEY SEE OUR INACTION.

We see evil. Together, let's prepare ourselves to be the polar negative to all that we see. Let give the world a choice. Together let's choose love and let the chips fall where they may.

I love you and I trust you. We all have children. Even if we had a bad childhood, we all in the depths of our souls do not want others to suffer what we did. We want to believe in the shire. We want to believe in Disneys Main Street USA.

And just,like when we are there, we behave differently. Because we want to believe and make it work.

It does work, it will work. With God all things are possible and tomorrow will be a better day. People can and do change. Let's lead the way.

From the mountain top deep in the heart of the west, good night America.

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.

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?"
