Glenn thrashes Sen. Lindsey Graham’s idiotic comments on Egypt

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Glenn’s blood hit the boiling point on radio this morning in reaction to some pretty remarkable audio from Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) about the crisis in Egypt. During a visit to Cairo earlier this week, the Senators sat down with CBS News and admitted that the country is “just days or weeks” away from “all out bloodshed.”

“Well, I was at the doctor early this morning because I thought I had a brain aneurysm last night,” Glenn said. “It was in the 5 o’clock hour, happened about 5:20, when Buck Sexton actually played the audio of Lindsey Graham on CBS News reporting on what their fact‑finding mission in Egypt found. Here it is:”

REPORTER: Are you alarmed by what you see happening in Egypt?

GRAHAM: Oh, my God. I didn’t know it was this bad. These folks are just days or weeks from all‑out bloodshed.

Yes, that was a senior United States Senator admitting he had absolutely no idea what was going on in Egypt.

“I can’t take it,” Glenn said disgusted.

“You had no idea, Lindsey,” Pat asked. “Have a television set, do you? “

On last night’s Glenn Beck Program, Glenn laid out three things no one is talking about in regards to the Middle East. “And wait until it really slides off,” he said. “There are three things that you need to know about the Middle East today.”

  1. Egypt could collapse soon
  2. Libya is on the brink
  3. Turkey just gutted its military

“One, Egypt is – many people, including Lindsey Graham say now that – it is days from flying out of complete control,” Glenn explained. “What we’re talking about now is not Civil War. We are talking about massive bloodshed. We’re talking about Syria happening in Egypt.”

This type of conflict would have worldwide implications. Chiefly, Israel would be in immediate danger and the global economy could spiral out of control.

“If Egypt spirals out of control, that means the Gaza Strip is no longer monitored at all,” Glenn said. “Israel would now have massive fighters going in. There’s nobody standing guard against Israel.”

Furthermore, there is the issue of oil. In 2008, oil prices hit $140/barrel and the U.S. economy collapsed. Today, speculation is that oil could hit $300/barrel. “So you know, 80% of the world’s oil goes through Egypt and the Suez Canal… If you shut down the Suez Canal, they are now saying that the price of a barrel of oil could skyrocket,” he explained. “It was 140 where we collapsed. 140. They are saying now that if they close the Suez Canal, if there is massive strife in the Middle East, you are looking at $300 a barrel of oil. It’s not like you’re looking at $10 a gallon gasoline. You’ll be lucky to have gasoline.”

When someone like Sen. Graham, who is often touted for his foreign policy expertise, claims to not “know it was that bad” in Egypt, it’s safe to assume the government is in no way prepared for the worst case scenario.

“That’s what’s just happening in Egypt,” Glenn said. “But if you go west of Egypt, just over the border, you’re smack dab into Libya. Now, Libya, the leader of Libya… [is] saying that they are within a week of collapse themselves because the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda are fighting, and Islamists are about to take over.”

Both Egypt and Libya on the verge of collapse, but there is another situation of instability, this time in Turkey, that threatens the balance of power in the Mid East region. Turkey was admitted into NATO under the guise that it could never devolve into an Islamic state because of the military’s protection of the Constitution, but now it appears the military has lost that control.

“Do you know what [the prime minister of Turkey] did,” Glenn asked. “He’s arrested and put in prison for life the generals of the military in Turkey. Turkey is about to come undone.”

So what is the solution?

“Here’s the good news. There’s a solution in the Middle East. Because people in the Muslim Brotherhood, and people with Al Qaeda, and the people on the street are all talking about the same solution,” Glenn said. “There’s a way to put the genie back in the bottle. There’s a way to make it all work. And guess what that is: The magic Caliphate.”

Glenn has been mocked and ridiculed for talking about the inevitability of the Caliphate for quite some time, but he had a bold message this morning.

“I haven’t been this angry in quite some time,” Glenn said. “The one thing I don’t ever get right is time… I am wrong on timing, but I am telling you we are about to have an economic impact, the likes of which the globe has never seen. When – not if – when all these chickens come home to roost, you have mass chaos, not just in the Middle East, but it will slide the entire globe into chaos. And that means an economic impact… And then comes the giant reset… If you don’t know history, you’re about to repeat it… We have not progressed. If anything, we have regressed.”

    Lindsey, I had no idea either!  I thought the perpetual protests in Tahrir Square were for bailouts of failing Egyptian businesses!  Funny I didn’t see you there picketing, or throwing rocks at soldiers, or raping any women.  Crazy.  I didn’t know it was that bad!

    Lindsey Graham shows the cluelessness and lack of connection to reality on part of the leftists, and now we are seeing the fruition of Obama’s support for the Arab Spring and his terrorist allies in the Middle East.

    1. Egypt collapses into chaos, Al Qaeda or the Muslim Brotherhood dominates any new government as a Sharia Theocracy

    2. Libya, Jordan, Algeria, Syria (probable), Mali and Morocco will fall to the forces of Al Qaeda as will Lebanon, Iraq, and in due time Turkey.

    The Caliphate will be fulfilled within ten years.

    Only Israel remains in their way, and now that Obama has shown to be an anti-Semite of the highest order, and a blatant supporter of terrorism and extremist ideology, they have their best chance to annihilate them once and for all, probably with US Forces helping out under the orders of Obama.

        What exactly are you trying to say here?  The most powerful Muslims in every single solitary nation in the Middle East have a goal more insidious than to simply rule over Arab lands.  They want complete 100% dominion of the entire Earth and consider themselves mutually exclusive to every single solitary non-Muslim.  It’s written all over the Koran, the Hadith, and any transcript of any program on Al-Jazeera.  It’s the religion of peace in a way that really means a religion of the tranquility of blind servitude to Allah.  Anyone who isn’t with the program is supposed to get their head cut off.  You can disagree with my post here all you want, but it will accomplish nothing but to expose you as a person who hasn’t studied and doesn’t understand Islam, AT ALL.

      Post-Arab Spring, neither Libya or Egypt have demonstrated they can sustain any type of government for even a brief period of time (more than 2 years.) It’s highly unlikely that Al-Qaeda/Muslim Brotherhood would have long-term success implementing any form of governmental entity, including a theocracy, in either country.

      Furthermore, there is little evidence to suggest the remaining countries in your hypothetical would fall like dominoes to Al-Qaeda/Muslim Brotherhood. If overthrowing a government and installing a system of Sharia law were so simple, why did this not happen 10 years ago? Why didn’t it happen immediately in Egypt and Libya following the Arab Spring? These extremist groups are powerful but they lack the cohesive organization and strategy to achieve another Caliphate. 

      This isn’t to discredit the potential danger a hostile takeover in Egypt or Libya represents to U.S. interests. But another Caliphate is inconceivable in the 21st century.

            Washington is broken because her people are broken. Washington is a mirror of the people who vote. Washington will not change until the people change, and sadly that may take some time. We may have to experience real domestic trouble to wake people up and then they just might listen to facts and reason.
            Today’s number of informed voters is better than yesterday’s. As Reagan said, “government IS the problem”. But are we not the government?
            Is it not our own govt that has made us reliant of foreign sources of oil? Where in their service to us have Graham & McCain been? Have they continually stumped for a repeal of restrictive laws on our own production? No, they have been too busy stumping for the NDAA indefinite detention of humans inside our country.
            Neither deserve their salaries or their robust retirements.
            But don’t hold your breath waiting on the GOP execs to make a critical stand against them. Too bad really! It would be the event that would go far to rebuild the Republican brand and bring back disaffected voters.

            James Garfield once stated, “Now, more than ever, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress.  If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate those characteristics.  If that body be intelligent, brave and pure, it is because the people demand those characteristics from their national legislature.”

            Congress is a representation of our people.  The men and women who represent us come from among us.  When we elect people that are ignorant, reckless, or corrupt, it is because it is a reflection of who we are as a people.  McCain, Graham, Reid, Pelosi, Rangel, Boehner, McConnel are all perfect examples of ignorance, recklessness, and corruption.  These are the leaders in the House and the Senate.  Not too long ago, there was a guy named Weiner who was among this bunch, and his name was the perfect description for his character. These are the people that have been elected by us, over and over and over again.  And then we ask why is this country in the shape it’s in.  That shows our own ignorance, recklessness, and corruption being reflected by our leaders.  

            If we want to change Congress, we must first change ourselves.  We must embrace intelligence, honor, integrity, and dignity, as we pursue righteousness, truth, and justice.  Congress will not reflect those traits until you and I do.  You are right, this country is due for some real domestic trouble, also known as suffering unless we as a people begin to change, which in turn will force Congress to change.

            You are right on.  We desperately need term limits to rid ourselves of these career politicians.  Obamacare would have never been passed.  All these entitlements would not be paid now like they are.  Entitlements are for an emergency stop gap fix, not a cradle to grave plan to do nothing.  With out career politicians we wouldn’t be having this conversation about fixing our immigration.  We have laws that not being enforced.  This is all due to these career politicians who make back room deals just like Obamacare.

I don’t know, but he’s not the same John McCain that was the great POW survivor, or person that he use to be. I’m seriously concerned.

        The Establishment RNC does not represent true Conservatives.  There isn’t much difference between the RNC and the DNC.  They’re both self-serving and manipulative of the voters.  Unfortunately, the average voter doesn’t have a clue about the complicity of the RINOs in the RNC running non-Conservative candidates to either lose to the DNC, or if elected, function like a Democrat..

      Agreed!  The RINO’s must go, but more importantly, ALL politicians need their feet held to the fire! 
      This is OUR problem people – not enough CITIZENS are even paying attention to what is going on in the world, so why would they have a problem with their elected official not having a clue? 
      Many of us preach to the choir here in the “comment” sections, but nothing is going to change unless we start educating the rest of the country.  I don’t care whose side you are on, I’m not sure anybody is happy with the way things are going right now – except maybe those on full rides who purposely stay ignorant so as not to rock their cash-cow boat.

     Graham and McCain are not only Traitors to humanity but also to the USA. No wonder now I know why Obama wants the Muslim Brotherhood to take over Egypt, so they can control the Suez C annal and  who the oil goes too and it wont be to us. It’s not about Egyptians being free from a Dictator, it’s about controlling the oil that is shipped around the World. Clinton Chief of staff Huma Weinner parents started the Muslim Brotherhood and she is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood and now we also have a clue to why Obama, Clinton, and the CIA Murdered Ambassador Stevens when help was in Tripoli for them, 30minmutes by air? The personal money payoff for Obama and Clinton must be in the Trillions of dollars for these Traitors.
    Thus helping Obama to destroy our Country and oil prices go so high that the United States will come to a stand still and collapse. I wonder which one of Obama Gang came up with that one for our Traitor President. He picked the right two guys to go to Egypt and promise the Muslim Brotherhood money and guns to kill their fellow Egyptians and destroy Egypt forever. Then the Muslims can attack Israel. Graham and McCain are the right people to go to Egypt. They are Traitors, and Global Elitists who are super rich from stealing money from the Big Government, insider raiding and any other criminal act they can get away with. As Global Elitists they think they were chosen by God to rule the World. They are much smarter then anyone on this earth and they are the ones who should tell everyone what they can do and what they cannot do. Although these three Traitors are fools, they are dangerous because they have the power that our Congress and Senate will not stop them from doing what they want.
    We the people need to buy more guns and ammo, to protect our selves from the Obama Government. I doubt if Obama will ever give up being President. In 2016 Obama will still be President. That’s why he is campaigning he has no fear that he will not be President for life. Because he is supported by the Global Elitists. Rockefeller Quadrilateral Commission and the Bilderbergers. If you look and see the names that in just these two organization run by the richest man in the world David Rockefeller, these people are the richest in the world. God’s chosen people. Read the article: The Character Traits of the Truly Evil People, From personal liberty digest. Be ready freedom loving people to rise up and destroy these Power hungry Traitors.   And the NSA can kiss me where the sun don’t shine.

Google Carroll Quigley and discover his findings. Read David Reckefeller’s memoirs where he admits to have been working with others to advance their interests. Google Richard N Gardner’s 1974 statement regarding the “hard road to world order” or Admiral Chester Ward’s statements summarizing the CFR’s general membership attitude in favor of globalism and against our sovereignty. Many more proofs are available. Heads up!!! Janet Yellen is being highly toughted as Bernanke’s replacement. She too is a member of the CFR!

    Lindsey and McCain are both communists and that’s what they have in common with Obam. Obama has shut all our Embassys down and why? I think it’s because his muslim brotherhood plans to attack Israel an the media won’t be there to cover it. He plans to let the gas go sky high here and that will weaken the American people to fight against his takeover of our country. That also explains why he fights all oil production in our country. We will see a bloody civil war again in this country I predict, it will be soon. If Obama was a real American, he would know that we don’t go down easy.

    I don’t mean to make light of this, because it is serious, but as best I can tell, we now get around 12% of our oil from the Middle East. We get 44% of the oil we use right here in the U.S. We get 16% of it from Canada, 13% from Central and South America, and another 15% from other countries. If the situation gets as bad as closing the Suez, yeah, that will increase the price, but I don’t see how that’s going to dry up the gas supply such that we can’t get any. Our demand for gas was dropping last year, as I recall. I can only imagine that’s continued.

    O no, they are worse than Democrats. At least you know what to expect fron Dems. These two stuges stab us, Conservatives in the back time after time, after time.
    Mc Cain is a walking dummy. Only brain dead Republican establishment could make him a nomenee in 2008. These idiots always chose  wrong nomenees.. Although Romney was a succesful businesman  nomenee, that`s not enough to beat the left wing ugly lying machin and worthless Communist obama in 2012.Only Gingrich could wipe the floor with obama.

    Huh?  Graham likes acting like a doofus?  By his words/actions he seems as well informed in
    foreign affairs as was the senator from IL when he came into the WH.

    maybe we need a balanced  forecast of the Middle East future; it may not be great but we must make the most out of the positive; The report of the 2 men was eye opening in that we do not realise how serious the situation is.

    The best solution is to allow these animals to kill each other to the best of their ability.  I agree with most here that McCain and Graham are nothing more than RINO’s and the sooner we get rid of them the better.

  • Vonnie Wilford

    What’s scary is our president doesn’t know as much about the situation as Graham does.

    Senator Graham is a Southerner; Senator McCain a Westerner. Perhaps they have more on their minds that involves the United States’ internal politics as relates to their districts than the ceaseless international turmoil and mayhem of the sundry fuzzy foreigners who get their psychological jollies via religious nonsensical violence and the murder of innocents. After all “government by the people” threatens many special interests. Face it. We too are caught up in the situation of induced, deliberate world chaos albeit over somewhat different issues. Egypt and Syria are potentially dangerous situations that could result in war even nuclear war. The U.S., as Abraham Lincoln saw it, is being stripped of its Constitution by the current activities of some of the citizens and politicians. It would seem that the entire world is being set-up economically, socially, and physically to  need / call for / demand a stable world environment. The New World Order of bankers, corporations, politicians, like Graham and McCain, and the rapacious elite? The “Fair Share”, menial employment world of Obama’s and liberals lies, deceit, deceptions and regulations? Consider that the NSA’s spying on Americans and foreigners, as well as that similarly done by foreign governments is the prelude to, maybe even the start of, world fascism, commodity rationing and the option of a living standard akin to ant hill serfdom or debased poverty, imprisonment or “reduction”.

    McCain is a liberal Republican and Graham is liberal on some issues, but wea are stuck with them. We should put pressure on Obama to Declare the Muslim Brotherhood organization a terrorist group and require Obama’s administration to stop supporting them. Sign here –

    Prediction of $300.00 per barrel oil and the A-Hole in Chief and Hollywood tree hugging fanatics pushed him into refusing the Keystone Pipeline.  Ladies and Gentlemen you cannot make this stuff up.  This is what always happens when the self-centered, egotistical, abstract thinking theorist intelligencia gets power and actually believe their way of thinking is better than common ordinary sense. They are totally F’d up!!!

  • Lynn Brooks

    This is exactly what Obama is after! Open your eyes and realize they want global chaos! It is going to happen, no matter what. They made sure the leaders of these countries were taken out. Starting with Saddam Hussein. Those leaders that were killed or deposed kept their people in line. They should have left them alone! But no, they knew exactly what they were doing and what it would cause in the near future. There is someone behind the presidents that is pushing their world agenda. Collapse the world and they step in and take complete control. DUH!! A blind man could see this is happening.

    I agree with all your comments.  They are republican in name only.  I read these comments and I see how many people are infuriated with our politicians but they keep getting re-elected.  Where do you all live?  Why can’t we get our act together, unite, and throw these bums out of office.  It is time for a solidarity movement.  We need to act as one instead of all these splinter groups and take back our country.  The average person like me who is disgusted doesn’t know where to start or what to do to help the cause.  What are your suggestions??!!!

  • Katherine Trupo

    Their all talk ! when did we ever have a POTUS like Obama & when did we ever give into one the way this Republican Party has starting with the current SOH Boehner ! as I’ve been preaching this SOH is nothing more then another Nancy Pelosi in this regard. mark me they will merge with the Dem.Party ! vote these useless Rino’s out before they do it!

    You would think after getting “surprised’ by how bad Egypt really is, Lindsey Graham would fire his staff whose job it is to search out real news and facts on issues important to him and the country.  But I suspect, his staff along with McCain’s, was loaned to them by their good friends on the Democrat side and  rely on the ole media outlets and  Soros funded Media Matters and Center for American Progress.

    McCain and Lindsey get all ORGASMIC when Obama asks them to take charge or check into something … ANYTHING!!!

    The Middle East has to go through this turmoil. The region has not had an evolutionary change event like our revolutionary and civil wars.  The people of the regions have never had a chance to fight and bleed for a way of life of their choosing.  It has always been forced upon them by dictators or foreign influences.  Maybe they do end up under a Muslim caliphate and if they do at least we’ll have a consolidate enemy to face or in best case scenario a society that might evolve so that it can interact with the rest of the world.

    Unfortunately the timing is horrible, as we (USA) are going through our own evolution. We can’t sustain the progressive model of making less and less of our citizens productive through government give away programs.  I sometimes wonder if there are genetic triggers that cause humans to be stupid when the population gets to a certain point. Just look at most of our government, everything they seem to do is the opposite of finding a real solution.  House is on fire and they are passing laws to use gas to put it out. 

    The world is always in trouble, but it seems like we could be heading for one of those world wide events that will not be pleasant to attempt to live through.

    The people who are supposedly “leading” our country have no idea what the crap they are doing!  NONE of them!  Well, maybe obama does because this is what he wants.  But the Senators, etc. are all still thinking in terms of NORMAL foreign policy “problems”.  Massive chaos, slaughter of millions, etc…doesn’t even compute with them.  That is how Hitler got away with his halocast for years.  No one could fathom that kind of evil.  And it is that kind of thinking that explains why our republicans won’t fight obama on anything.  THEY SIMPLY DO NOT GRASP THE TRUTH OF WHAT IS GOING ON.  They think that obama is just your average, every day liberal president who can be “reasoned” with.  THAT is what will destroy this country…our “leaders” don’t get it!!”

  • Samuel Chet Bostic

    it’s funny, the first comments made about this article, is whether or not McCain and Lindsey are true republicans, people get so involved with the bs and completely ignore the big picture, which is the coming storm that is fast approaching. and why we will be destroyed as a result of the complete mismanagement of this country, and if you really believe that the problems facing us can be fixed with what has been called the big reset, then your completely ignaorant of what GOD has to say about it. the stage has been set, the roman empire  has been resurrected, and the antichrist has risen, and it’s just a matter of a few months before the shit hits the fan 

  • Armya M Boulos

    Egypt crumble soon!!!!!
    What is your vision for this barbaric racial perception
    I have no comment on the speech of others is incorrect logical
    But to say that the Egyptian army is the world’s armies Egyptian army is characterized by something else, but in a state of war do not fight with weapons just do not do not do not the Egyptian army fought with soldiers and their souls guess the anger of the Egyptian army

    And the solution for the Raglands is what? Should we enter their wars? Should we destroy them all? Whose side should we take, our enemy or our enemy?

    In hindsight it seems we should have kept a very low profile in that hornet’s nest and gone after terrorists like they were a criminal organization.

    Progressivism has infested both parties and there are not many Regan Republicans left. This country has been fighting progressivism since the elections of 1892/1896. William Bryan and the populist party brought their progressive platform to the Democratic National Convention and they adopted progressive action.

    Glen, you blame Graham for grand standing, then do the same for five minutes.  80% of the world’s oil does NOT go through Suez, 10% does and this is NOT ISRAEL.  You are being punked and used by Zionists. Egypt has been around for 4,500 years. What, are they all going to disappear overnight?  To hell with Israel and their propaganda.  This is the United States.  Send your own children to war, buddy.  You AND Graham are flat wrong on this one.

    What’s with those two? It’s like they have a title like “majority leader” but they don’t. Even Obama wanted to have lunch with McCain the day of… wasn’t it the day of the inauguration? McCain has some kind of weight he throws around behind closed doors or something. It’s like he and Lindsey Graham run the entire Republican Senate. If only Arizona could somehow get rid of him, it would really be a huge victory.

    The worst kind of gay is the closeted self-hating gay like Lindsey Graham. He makes ZERO sense here.

    How ironic that the Republicans, supposedly the party which supports “freedom” does not support the will of the Egyptians to not have to live under a bunch of Islamic Terrorists.

    Nancy-boy Graham is clueless about everything.  He’s too busy being infatuated with Johnny McCain.
