Santorum v. Ron Paul on foreign policy

Ron Paul and Rick Santorum clashed over foreign policy in the Middle East - specifically when it came to Iran. On the one hand, Paul vehemently opposed sanctions against the country for developing nuclear weapons, pointing out that America never sanctioned the Soviet Union which was a much bigger threat to the United States. Other the other hand, Santorum felt that Iran posed a huge threat to Israel, and as an ally we should support them.

"I think that (sanctions) makes it much worse. Why would that be so strange if the Soviets and the Chinese have nuclear weapons, we tolerated the Soviets. We didn't attack them and they were a much greater than danger. They were the greatest danger to us in our whole history but you don't go to war against them. I mean, this whole idea of sanctions, the free traders, they're the ones who put on these trade sanctions. This is why we still don't have a trade relationship with Cuba. It's about time we talk to Cuba and stop fighting these wars that are about 30 or 40 years old," Paul argued.

Santorum responded, "As the author of the Iran support act which he is criticizing, because I authored it when I was the United States Senate, would actually impose sanctions on Iran because of their nuclear program. Iran is not Iceland, Ron. Iran is a country that has been at war with us since 1979. Iran is a country that has killed more American men and women in uniform in Iraq and Afghanistan than the Iraquis and Afghanistans have. The Iranians are the existential threat to the State of Israel. You ask the Israelis what keeps them up at night. It's the Iranians funding the Hamas and Hezbollah."

While Glenn tends to agree with Ron Paul on some libertarian issues, he sided with Santorum on this foreign policy issue. "I'm telling you, there's nobody that can school anyone on the Middle East like Rick Santorum," Glenn said.

"Ron Paul I think uses his libertarian sometimes as an excuse. I don't understand his policies in the Middle East. I do understand the idea that he expresses and he's right about this, we have caused much of the problems over in the Middle East for us," he said. Glenn said that America has been getting into bed with dictators for too long and that's why so many people hate us over in the Middle East.

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
