Iran believes unrest means Islamic Messiah is near

For weeks, Glenn has been showing evidence of Iranian President Ahmadinejad claiming that he is trying to hasten the return of the Twelfth Imam. Glenn even produced a documentary, “Rumors of War”, to try and educate people about the danger this belief holds for the Middle East and the rest of the world. People who believe in the Twelfth Imam see the chaos sweeping the globe as a sign of the Twelfth Imam’s return, and a shocking video released yesterday confirms this belief. On radio this morning, Glenn interviewed CBN reporter Erick Stakelbeck, who uncovered the shocking video.

You can watch the video from The Blaze below:

Stakelbeck has been investigating the Twelfth Imam for over five years and radical Islam for ten, and the video confirms a lot of what he has seen. “This was produced by the Iranian regime and what it does is it lays out a scenario. They see the current unrest in the Middle East as a clear divine signal that the Mahdi is about to emerge from that well and return. Iran is going to help usher in his return. He's going to slaughter all non-Muslims and Iran will be ascendant, Islam will be ascendant, it sounds crazy but they really believe this stuff and they will make policy around these Islamic scriptures,” Stakelbeck said.

Glenn wondered how the average person in Iran was impacted by the fanaticism in their leadership, and he asked Eric whether this was a new agenda in Iran.

“This is the power brokers. This is drilled into them on a daily basis, this messianic ideology, the ideology of martyrdom, blowing yourself up, going to heaven. This is drilled into the average Iranian member of the military, the intelligence services there, and the average Iranian citizen,” Stakelbeck said.

“If you walk down the streets of Tehran, everything you look there's posters and banners of the Mahdi, of former great Imams and former Shia leaders who have martyred,” he added. “This culture of martyrdom, culture of Mahdi is instilled in them from a young age. It starts in school and it goes on and on as they advance on through the military.”

“This apocalyptic ideology is really a way of life,” Stackelbeck said.

But what do you to convince people who try and dismiss this as superstition or exaggeration?

“There is no concept of mutually assured destruction within Iranian regime. During the Cold War, look, the Soviets, they were living for this world. They didn't want to die. The Iranians do not fear death,” Stackelbeck said.

“Look at the Iran/Iraq war during the 1980's when the Iranian regime sent tens of thousands of little boys, little Iranian boys as young as 7 and 8 years old to clear mine fields. They were told, they actually had keys around their necks, guys, that were the keys to paradise or so the Ayatollah Khomeini told them. A regime like this will think nothing.”

Stackelbeck told Glenn that he used to be a sports write, but after 9-11 he went out and bought a copy of the Qur’an and the hadith and “devoured them”.

Stackelbeck and Glenn both emphasized that the philosophy of “Tweliverism” is not a belief held by all Muslims. Stackelbeck said, “I'm talking about the radical jihadist sect of Islam.”

“I want to bring up something about this video, Glenn, that I think you'll take an interest in, it says that the Muslim brotherhood's rise in Egypt is a sign of the end, is a positive sign in the eyes of the Iranian regime and a sign of the end. I think that's one of the things in this video that has been kind of overlooked,” Stackelbeck added.

Stackelbeck’s book, The Terrorist Next Door, comes out on May 2nd.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
