Mao’s original 'Great Reset' WARNS America what’s to come

There’s a reason why Mao’s ‘Five Year-Plan,’ also known as ‘The Great Leap Forward,’ is a taboo topic in China today: It ended DISASTROUSLY, with millions of Chinese lives lost. But Mao’s idea shares several similarities to another currently being forced around the world: The Great Reset. Glenn details the five-year plan, how it went horribly wrong, and why America could be at risk of similar consequences if we don’t stand for FREEDOM today.

GLENN: You know, you think that a leopard can change its spots, and it can't. It can't.

Marxism and, quite honestly, intellectualism, always ends the same way. When you put intellectuals in charge, and they think they're better than everyone else.

Most people -- most people really don't recall the five-year plan. In fact, in China, it's -- it's against the law to talk about the five-year plan. You're not allowed to talk about it or teach about it. Most people don't know about it in China. And it started with Mao saying, hey. We're better than this. We're capable of anything.

And we really need to -- we need to change the way we do industry. And the way we do agriculture. And so he had a plan that was supposed to last from 1958 to 1963. And it was called the great leap forward. It was The Great Reset. We don't work as well. So we have to change things. And he had a plan for everything. From the way your family worked, all the way up. And they were going -- they were going to change everything. Industry could prosper, if the work force was well-fed. And while the agricultural workers needed industry to produce the modern tools needed for modernization. What he said was, all we have to do is we have to make our own steel, so we can make our own trackers and trucks and everything else. And then if we make all this stuff, then we can give it to the farmers. And the farmers will be able to make so much money. In fact, we'll require them, to grow so much food. And everybody will be have a quota. And it was great. It was great. And the people gave up ownership. Mao had this idea, that you would own nothing, and you would be happy. And so they gave up ownership of everything. And it was owned by the state and by the communes. So everything in these communes was controlled. Every bit of your life. You know, school. Nurseries. Health care. They -- people moved into what was called the houses of happiness. So they could be looked after and cared for by the state. All they had to do was just go to work. 700 million people were placed in these communes by 1958. Here's the problem: Enthusiasm kind of stopped once they were in their house of happiness. Because life was not as they said it would be. People owned nothing. But they weren't quite so happy. But they produced. And they -- and they produced and produced and produced. And they hit their steel quota. Propaganda was everywhere, including the fields.

You could listen to political speeches, as you were working. It was great. Because politics, it was everything. Everybody in communes was urged not just to meet the set targets, but to beat them. And if you didn't have the machine, well, use your bare hands. Quality became a little dubious. The problem is: The steel that they were making wasn't holding up. The trackers that they were putting together, weren't working.

And then they had a weather turn. Well, here's what happened: Things started to go wrong in 1959. Listen to this. Political decisions and beliefs. Took precedence over common sense. I haven't heard that, have you? Have you heard any of this plan being discussed, recently, at all?

Communes faced the task of doing things, which they were incapable of achieving. Party officials would order the impossible, and commune leaders, who knew what their commune was capable of doing or not, could be charged with being a reactionary, if they complained. Such a charge would lead them to be an outcast or be sent to prison.

We're not having that problem, are we? You're seeing anybody that is becoming an outcast, because they disagree with where the political leaders are taking us? Saying that maybe this covid thing is not a good idea? Maybe we shouldn't be handling it this way?

Maybe your policies are leading to this inflation. Maybe we won't own nothing and be happy?

Nobody is being made an outcast for those points of view, right? So here's the problem: Because they were trying to make steel, a lot of the farmers, had to take work away from their fields. And so the fields weren't being harvested. And then they had problems with the steel that they were making to help the farmers. And then the weather went bad. What could possibly go wrong?

Well, here's what went wrong: The first year, 9 million people, in China starved to death. 9 million people.

Mao's attitude was, you have to break a few eggs to make an omelet. It will get better.

20 million people died, in China. Starved to death. Before 1962. 20 million. They say that is a very low number. It's more likely that it was around 40 million people died.

But we don't know, because, you know, it's China. These communist countries, these countries that are set up, where the elites have all of the power. And they do that, because they care so much about you. The little person. They care. And they know what's right for you. These countries that are set up like this, always end up like China and -- and what's happening in Shanghai right now. Because they don't know better than you. They can't make decisions for your family. Do you think people would stay in their home, after they know what they know about covid. This is not the first run with covid. Do you really think that they would stay at home, be locked inside, and do you think with what they know now, and what we know now about covid, do you think it would be worse than the possibility of one city, one. There are multiple cities locked down. This is just Shanghai. This is the financial capital now, of China. This is our New York City. Except, New York City has 7 million people. They have 25 or 26 million people. Hmm. Do you think if those people were allowed to leave and the truckers were allowed to deliver things, do you think there would be starvation? Do you think it would be a possible revolution? Because that's what they're headed for. And the only way to stop it. And this is why they're being so brutal, the only way to stop it is to kill people. And they have no problem killing them. Food would not have been rotting. Central planning never works. And we have so lost our -- our willingness to learn from the past. We're just trying to erase the past. Which is strange. Because that's exactly what happened in China. Scholars now say, in China, that, you know, this is when they could talk in China. People who lived through it, are now discovering the true history of the great famine. And they're now putting it together, saying, wait. The government knew about this. They were the ones responsible for this. Those people, who actually have seen the history in China, now know what the problem is. And they know what the problem is with this covid shutdown too. It's the same problem. And it will end most likely, the same way. And most likely, we will hear about some of the dead. And some of the devastation. But not all of it.

Here's a big difference, however. In 1962, China didn't affect us. China didn't affect the rest of the world. What they did with their citizens, I guess, was their business.

This shutdown is already causing problems here in America. Remember, this is like January. Remember, we didn't really start to feel the effects, until, when? July. This is like January, when we were first watching it. And they were shutting down the city. And it wasn't Shanghai. And they were shutting everything down.

We saw the effects, within a couple of months. We are going to see the effects of this, over here. On what you can buy, what you can't buy. What you have access 20. Repair parts, chips. Computers.

Everything. I mean, if that's what motivates you. You should look at it, in a financial way. This is going to cripple the global economy.

I just personally hope we get the message, that we are going to have problems, so we don't have to worry about food. When the time comes. Please, plant a garden. If you live near farmers, if you don't have a farmer's market, start one. If you do, start getting to know the farmers.

You're going need to the farmers. Please, be in a community, where you all kind of think alike. Because you don't want to be alone.

You don't want to be -- you don't want to be surrounded in a city, full of the people like Mao had. You want to be surrounded by God-fearing people, who know the Judeo-Christian ethic of do unto others. Love thy neighbor. Back in a minute.
Time is running out on all kinds of things. One, we had President Biden say yesterday, that really, it's -- it's our governor here in Texas, that is causing all the problems with inflation. Because he's slowing the trucks down. He's demanding they all be checked when coming off the border.

Oh, tomorrow. I don't have time today. But tomorrow, I've got to gun that one down. It's not the governor in Texas that is causing the world's inflation. You want your kids to understand this? They have to understand this. Before we learn it the hard way. What is inflation? How is it caused? What causes it? Better yet, who causes it?

Well, it's the creature from Jekyll island. That's who is causing it. Otherwise known as the fed. The creature from Jekyll island is a scholarly book that came out years ago, that came out about the fed. And the Tuttle Twins have put together a book called the Tuttle Twins, and the creature from Jekyll island. And they learned what inflation is. They learned how and why our money works. And they learn about the fed. And most of us don't know about the fed. I've asked the Tuttle Twins to make this available for free. This is just one of their books in the series. It's not going to cost you a dime. Just pay for shipping. But this is so important. Every family should read this today. Because you need to understand inflation. And who causes it. The Tuttle Twins. And the creature from Jekyll island. It's Get it today for free.
(OUT AT 8:49AM)

GLENN: This is the Glenn Beck Program. It is the week of -- of Good Friday. Passover. And also of Easter. I want to play cut three, please. This is a mom, I believe, in California. Listen to this.

VOICE: Well, I paid $57. I think about six months ago, it would have been 28, 30.

VOICE: She says, the budgeting-busting prices from groceries to gas are taking a toll.

VOICE: I've had to carpool. Ask people for rides, if they're going to the grocery store. Right now, I'm looking for a weekend job.

VOICE: To get by, the mother of three is relying on food banks for the first time in her life.

VOICE: It's been a hard shift.

GLENN: This is happening all over the country. And I -- I say this, and it's going to be something that I really want to focus on with you, over the next few months. And however long it takes us to get through this. That everything that we have, really needs to be used for the building up of the kingdom and helping people. And if there's anything you can do, to give to a food bank, this week, or if you know somebody that is alone or struggling, that you could just drop food off, without anybody knowing that you did it. Or invite them to your table. There's a lot of people that are experiencing things that they haven't experienced before. And those who are the closest, to the bottom economically, are the ones that are going to get hit hardest and hit first. Eggs have gone up now, just before Easter, and prices of baked goods now, because of eggs are said to be rising to 30, 35 percent more in price. We really need to look out for one another. Know what is causing this. Demand that it stop. But also, look out for each other. Because the government doesn't care, really about you. We need to care about ourselves and our neighbors and our town. Back in a minute.

Is Biden Using YOUR TAX DOLLARS to Elect Democrats?

Is Biden Using YOUR TAX DOLLARS to Elect Democrats?

3 years ago, President Biden issued an executive order to "promote and defend the right to vote." But while that sounds fine on its own, its true effects are still shrouded in secrecy as we approach the 2024 election. Glenn explains what we do know: The order instructs EVERY federal agency use YOUR tax dollars to expand things like voting by mail using "approved" third-party organizations to get it done. So, who are these "approved" organizations? Well, Glenn reviews one of them, which sure doesn't seem "bipartisan." If this is what it appears to be, it would be akin to the 2020 "Zuckbucks" scheme "on government-funded steroids." Is Biden picking up where Mark Zuckerberg left off...?

Everything Congress SHOULD HAVE Asked Fauci About COVID-19

Everything Congress SHOULD HAVE Asked Fauci About COVID-19

With Dr. Fauci testifying before a House subcommittee on the origins of COVID-19, many thought he would finally be asked the tough questions: Why did he lie about gain-of-function research? Why did he try to cover up all the chatter among scientists that the virus DID come from a lab — and that American taxpayers funded these "Frankenstein" experiments? Did he know that the U.S. government cut a deal with Moderna on vaccines right before the pandemic? Glenn laid out the entire COVID-19 cover-up timeline nearly 3 years ago on a massive chalkboard. Will ANY of this be brought up in Congress?

THIS Biden-Encouraged Mortgage Trick Will Make You OWN NOTHING And "Be Happy"

THIS Biden-Encouraged Mortgage Trick Will Make You OWN NOTHING And "Be Happy"

Remember Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac? "You Will Own Nothing" author Carol Roth tells Glenn that the Biden administration is now using them to make sure YOU WILL OWN NOTHING. By encouraging MORE consumer debt spending through second mortgages, they're making Americans feel like they're wealthier. But at the same time, this process reduces Americans' ownership of their homes and practically buys votes before the election, Carol warns. What makes this especially dangerous, though, is that they're doing it during a time of inflation. So, while Americans are owning less and less and feeling "happy" right now, that won't last forever...


Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Carol Roth, the author of that book, You Will Own Nothing. Which is ridiculous.

How would you possibly bankrupt people, so they would to have sell everything. Or couldn't afford it. And have it taken away from them.

I mean, you'll own nothing by 2030.

Oh, what a ridiculous idea.

Hello, prophet, Carol Roth. How are you?

CAROL: I thought I was a conspiracy theorist, Glenn. But I'll take prophet/conspiracy theorist.

GLENN: Isn't it amazing, Carol? Every day -- every day I see something -- just McDonald's. You go to McDonald's. This is how you have a country that owns nothing because they no longer can afford to buy anything.


CAROL: Yeah. It's so frustrating when I read this in the media. The corporate press, of all sudden waking up and saying things like, oh, fast food and restaurants are more expensive than ever. And people can't afford them.

It's like, wow! That's a giant shock to me, who has been telling you this, for years and years, based on the fiscal and monetary policies of this country.

GLENN: You know what is more frustrating to me?

Is the fact that we know that they're wrong. We've seen that they're wrong. Over and over and over again.

They're lying to us. And saying we're a conspiracy.

And then when it turns out to be right. They announce it's suddenly true and right.

And then people go back to them. For the answer on how to solve it.

It's crazy.

CAROL: Right. It's the arsonists who are burning down your house. And then they bring a water bottle. And say, hey, I'm going to put out the fire. It is frustrating.

And the gaslighting, when we're telling people, what it is that they're going to experience, or what they experience from the Biden administration. From the press. Saying, no, no, no.

You just don't understand. You're just not smart enough. When people are experiencing this every day.

It's just like an extra gut punch.

GLENN: Right. Right. Talk 2078 about Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae.

This was one of the biggest collapses during 2008. But if I'm not mistaken, it wasn't really taken that way, because the federal government.

We the taxpayers foot the bill for that one. So they didn't actually fail.

But they did!

CAROL: So do you remember the scene in -- after Trading Places when Randolph and Mortimer Duke went bankrupt, and then they pop up in Coming to America. And Eddie Murphy hands them this wad of cash. And all of a sudden Randolph says, Mortimer, we're back!

I feel like this is exactly the same thing that's going on with Freddie Mac. And certainly, if it happens with Freddie Mac and it gains acceptance, it's going to happen with Fannie Mae.

So right now, these two government sponsored enterprises, based on what happened with the great recession, and financial crisis. They were put into conservatorships with the FHFA. So they have been watching them. And making sure they don't do anything risky, right?

GLENN: Right.

CAROL: Well, now Freddie Mac had this great idea. Because people have so much equity in their homes. Let us go ahead and offer second mortgages.

Now, you have to remember that these government sponsored enterprises, Freddie Mac and as well as Fannie Mae. The whole point of them is to extend credit, make sure people can get into housing.

But second mortgages don't get you into housing. Those are consumer loans. Those are people taking money out of their homes and using them for whatever it is.

And that equity is perceived equity.


Because they haven't cashed out the house.

They have been sold the house.

They haven't cashed out. They don't have that guarantee. They just think that today, it happens to be worth this much money.

GLENN: Wait. Let me make a case for this. I did a lot of thinking on this, a couple of years ago.

Some people, that may be good for.

Other people, horrible. Or do you think it's always horrible?

CAROL: Here's what it is. It's taking money out of your home. The equity. The ownership that you have. And you say, no longer do I have this ownership. Now I have the pile of cash. So what are you doing with that cash? Are you using it to reinvest?

Because right now, that's really expensive to do. We're not in a zero interest rate environment. So even if you're paying a second mortgage. Eight or nine, or whatever percentage it is. How will you get a better return on that? That seems to me, that people are taking their wealth. Their ownership. And going and blowing it, spending it.

GLENN: That's what will happen. That's what will happen. I mean, second mortgages, to pay down like a credit card at 25 percent. I would rather pay nine, than 25.

CAROL: Sure. Sure. But rather, we would rather to use other money to pay down 25 percent, than taking down your ownership. So obviously, it is specific to everyone. But overall, I think we have to ask ourselves a few questions here. One, why is it that the taxpayers should all of a sudden back consumer loans?

Why is that as it that we want to encourage more consumer debt spending, particularly during a time of inflation? And why do we want people to reduce the ownership, the equity in their homes?

GLENN: May I guess?

CAROL: Sure. Please do.

GLENN: Because I am a helper.

And if you reelect me. I can help you with all of your troubles. But the other guy, he is not going to help you with that. I will help you get a loan, so you can do the things you need to do. Invest in your business. And pay down your loans. And a lot of people are struggling even to pay for food.

So I will help you.

CAROL: Bing, bing, bing. We have an election around the corner. And obviously, we have seen Biden try to do this cancellation of student loan debt. And that is not working out as well as he hopes, although he keeps pushing it. So now, how do we make people who are maybe struggling financially feel like they're wealthier, feel like they have more cash in their hands?

Oh, we'll let them take this, quote, unquote, equity out of their homes.

Which is buying both. Which is increasing consumer spending. Which pushes up the GDP. Which we know is faltering based on last quarter.

So all these things make him look like the economy is doing better.

By the way, also likely highly inflationary, that we're adding consumer spending.

Into the mix here.

So this is being proposed, by --

GLENN: Hang on just a second. And more inflation, makes it harder for you to buy things, later. You've got now, a second mortgage.

And you're going to be in the same situation you were in, if you spend that money to do anything other than pay off very high interest rates.

You take a loan out, and do anything with it. When the -- because this won't happen until after the election.

I mean, you won't feel the effects.

But I'm telling you, inflation next year is going to be insane.

Do you agree with that?

CAROL: Well, particularly, if these programs that he's pushing, continue.

So if that comes back and says, sorry, we're not going to do this. Which one of the things that is pretty interesting here, and goes back to this election thesis. Normally when you have a rule like this, that pops up. There is a comment period.

That comment period is six to 12 months, depending on the variety of factors. Do you know what the comment variety on this was? Thirty days. Thirty days.

GLENN: Two weeks.

CAROL: Which, again, goes back to saying, there is an urgency, of why it is they're trying to push it through.

Now, I will add something else super fun here.

So if Freddie Mac does this. There's no reason why Fannie Mae is not going to try to do this.

They're under conservatorships, right?

How do they really expand this market.

Right now, it's a decent sized market.

But this could expand, up to, for both of those agencies. Maybe 2 trillion. I've heard maybe four to 5 trillion of leverage capacity.

How do they extend that?

Well, they could then. If the conservators. At the Treasury. Say, okay. You're no longer at conservatorships.

They can go back to securetizing these.

Is it this sound familiar. That means they take a bunch of these secondary mortgages. They package them together, into a new security. And they sell them into the markets.

And these were the same types of securities, if you recall, which started the whole ball rolling, with the great recession, financial crisis.

Nothing to see here, guys. I'm sure this will work out really well. And I'm super excited for taxpayers to back consumer loans.

You're not even backing first mortgages. You're now backing consumer loans. Way to go. Really glad the government wants to get --

GLENN: And, again, it's estimated to be $2 trillion.

However, you and I both know. Uh-huh. It could go as high as $5 trillion.

Don't just think of that as your debt that we need to pay, think of it this way, as well.

That's two to 5 trillion dollars, being dumped into the economy.

What do you think will happen to the value of the dollar, and your buying power.

$5 trillion. Out of thin air.

CAROL: It's insane. And at a time when we have the Federal Reserve, who is frustrated with their fight to -- their attempt to fight inflammation.

And the government continuing to spend like drunken sailors, no disrespect meant to the drunken sailors.

Then you keep having these consumer stimuluses. And this is what happened with the Biden administration when they came out right out of the gate, a few months later, and they did direct consumer stimulus. It's in the name. Stimulus. It stimulates the economy. That is the intention.

And the same thing here. If you take money that is locked up in homes. And all of a sudden, you unlock that. And again, it's theoretical money.

Because if the price of houses end up going down in that area. Then they could end up being underwater and be in real financial trouble.

So this is theoretical dollars that they have, that they're going to take out, and use the dollar to spend in the economy.

It officially inflates the GDP. It makes everything look like the consumer is doing much better. And it absolutely will eat away at your purchasing power.

Devalue your labor. And devalue your wealth.

Once again, it's the same cycle repeating for political purposes.

GLENN: Carol, I would love to have you on, later this week.

Because there's a couple of other things, that are affecting small businesses. And independent workers. Again, so you will own nothing.

But you will be happy, apparently.
