Stackelbeck: Iranian regime building missile bases off coast of Venezuela

Glenn invited Erick Stackelbeck onto radio this morning to discuss some of scarier news revealed in the new GBTV documentary Rumors of War 3: Target U.S. Would you believe that the Iranian regime is reported to be building missile bases off the coast of Venezuela? Or that they want to make inroads into Cuba, just 90 miles off the coast of the United States? Glenn got the shocking details on radio this morning.

Transcript of interview below:

GLENN: Erick Stakelbeck is here. He's on this special tomorrow, Rumors of War III on GBTV.com. Erick, the Muslim Brotherhood, the president has come out and said, you know, hey, we're going to help them in small business.

 

STAKELBECK: Yeah.

 

GLENN: I don't know if we're helping out the shop keepers in Iran as well.

 

STAKELBECK: Yeah.

 

GLENN: Give me the tie with Iran and the missiles of a Cuban missile crisis that's possibly coming.

 

STAKELBECK: Glenn, this is one of the most frightening developments in the realm of national security that the average American knows nothing about. Now, about a year and a half ago, a leading German daily newspaper, Die Welt, very credible, very credible source did a wide‑ranging investigative report and they found that the Iranian regime, Ahmadinejad and the boys, are building missiles bases in an island off the coast of Northern Venezuela, in our hemisphere. Now, these missile bases would obviously be equipped with Iran's midrange missiles which could reach, as you played in the clip, Panama Canal, Florida, but Iran is also working on Intercontinental ballistic missiles. Now, the Obama administration has to know this. They have to know what Iran is up to in our backyard. There's even been reports that Iran is trying to make inroads into Cuba, just 90 miles off our shore. And it's not a coincidence, Glenn, that on his victory tour of Latin America back in January, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad made a pit stop in Cuba. So, so much for the Monroe Doctrine.

 

GLENN: I was shocked when I watched the documentary. I watched half of it this morning, the finished reel, and I'm shocked, Erick, at how many people in this administration are really bad, I mean really bad. You know, we found Van Jones, like, okay, he's a really bad, a communist revolutionary. Really bad Islamic extremist, all in and around this administration.

 

STAKELBECK: Oh, yeah. I mean, these, Glenn, these are Muslim Brotherhood‑connected individuals and it's not just me saying it. I'm not just throwing the label out there calling them brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood's own documents, as we reveal in Rumors of War III which everyone needs to watch, their own documents say these are our friends. These are our organizations. And Glenn, these Muslim Brotherhood documents name names: Hey, these are our people. Well, the very people that the brotherhood names are in the White House. They have entree to the Obama administration.

 

GLENN: And it's not that they've infiltrated. You know, I think we've used the wrong word in the documentary. We say that they've infiltrated to all of the highest levels in every realm of our government now. They haven't infiltrated. We opened the ‑‑ President Obama opened the door and said, "Come on in, guys."

 

STAKELBECK: Glenn, two delegations from the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood were in the White House two weeks ago. Terrorists in suits. Because that's what the brotherhood is. They might not have the flowing beards and the long robes and that's where they get ya. They're wearing suits. They're well educated. They're eloquent. That's the Muslim Brotherhood's game: Deception. Well, they were in the White House two weeks ago meeting with Obama administration officials.

 

I never thought I'd see the day in American history where we had terrorists in the White House, but the Muslim Brotherhood is the granddaddy of them all when it comes to Islamic terror groups: Al‑Qaeda, Hamas all of the violent jihadists we hear about were spawned from the Muslim Brotherhood. They are the granddaddy. Osama Bin Laden, Ayman Al‑Zawahiri, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, all of these kingpins, before they formed Al‑Qaeda they belonged to, surprise, the Muslim Brotherhood.

 

STU: A lot of this information, too, Erick is fairly recent in that a lot of it came from the Holy Land Foundation investigation. Is that right? How did that come ‑‑ how did we come across that stuff?

 

STAKELBECK: Stu, that he is a great point. In 2007 the largest terrorism financing trial in American history went down in Dallas, Texas. The Holy Land Foundation was a quote/unquote Islamic charity that was feeding needy Palestinian orphans. Well, in reality they were sending some $10 million overseas to Hamas. All of this came out in the Holy Land Foundation trial in 2007, and in that trial, guys, key point here: Two of the leading American Muslim organizations that are good friends of the Obama administration: The Council on American Islamic Relations, CAIR, and the Islamic Society of North America, ISNA, both of these groups were named as unindicted co‑conspirators in this case, in the largest terrorism financing trial in American history.

 

GLENN: Yeah. Wait until you ‑‑ Erick, I thank you so much for your hard work. You'll be here tomorrow?

 

STAKELBECK: I will see you there, Glenn.

 

GLENN: We'll see you. Okay. Thanks a lot, Erick. It is tomorrow, Rumors of War III, GBTV.com. This is a don't‑miss. This is a don't‑miss. Nobody is going to show you this stuff. Nobody. And our documentary team in Ohio has worked a long time on this. That's tomorrow night, 7:00, special time, 7:00 on GBTV.com.

Faced with an oppressive government that literally burned people at the stake for printing Bibles, America's original freedom fighters risked it all for the same rights our government is starting to trample now. That's not the Pilgrim story our woke schools and corporate media will tell you. It's the truth, and it sounds a lot more like today's heroes in Afghanistan than the 1619 Project's twisted portrait of America.

This Thanksgiving season, Glenn Beck and WallBuilders president Tim Barton tell the full story of who the Pilgrims really were and what we must learn from them, complete with a sneak peek at the largest privately owned collection of Pilgrim artifacts.

Saule Omarova, President Joe Biden's nominee for comptroller of the currency, admitted she wants to fight climate change by bankrupting coal, oil, and gas companies. Alarmingly, Biden's U.S. special climate envoy, John Kerry, seemed to agree with Omarova when he said "by 2030 in the United States, we won't have coal" at the COP26 conference in Glasgow, Scotland, earlier this month. But that could end in massive electrical blackouts and brownouts across the nation, BlazeTV host Glenn Beck warned.

Carol Roth, author of "The War On Small Business," joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain what experts say you can do now to prepare your family for potential coming power outages.

"It's interesting. Usually when I go out and talk to experts in areas that are not 100% core to my area of expertise and I say, 'I would like to give you credit.' Usually I get, 'OK, here's how you credit me.' But everyone is like, 'No, no. Let me tell you what happened, just don't use my name.' And this is across the country," Roth said. "This isn't just a California issue, which obviously [California] is leading the nation. But even experts out of Texas, people who are monitoring the electric grid are incredibly concerned about brownouts or blackouts now, already. So forget about 2030."

"You want to have a backup source of power," she continued. "Either a propane, diesel, or combo generator is something that you're going to want to have. Because in a state, for example like Texas, I'm told that once the state loses power, it will take a minimum of two weeks to restore plants back to operations and customers able to use grid power again. So, this isn't something that we've got nine years or whatever to be thinking about. We should be planning and preparing now."

This year marks the four hundredth anniversary of the first Thanksgiving celebrated by the Pilgrims and their Wampanoag allies in 1621. Tragically, nearly half of the Pilgrims had died by famine and disease during their first year. However, they had been met by native Americans such as Samoset and Squanto who miraculously spoke English and taught the Pilgrims how to survive in the New World. That fall the Pilgrims, despite all the hardships, found much to praise God for and they were joined by Chief Massasoit and his ninety braves came who feasted and celebrated for three days with the fifty or so surviving Pilgrims.

It is often forgotten, however, that after the first Thanksgiving everything was not smooth sailing for the Pilgrims. Indeed, shortly thereafter they endured a time of crop failure and extreme difficulties including starvation and general lack. But why did this happen? Well, at that time the Pilgrims operated under what is called the "common storehouse" system. In its essence it was basically socialism. People were assigned jobs and the fruits of their labor would be redistributed throughout the people not based on how much work you did but how much you supposedly needed.

The problem with this mode of economics is that it only fails every time. Even the Pilgrims, who were a small group with relatively homogeneous beliefs were unable to successfully operate under a socialistic system without starvation and death being only moments away. Governor William Bradford explained that under the common storehouse the people began to "allege weakness and inability" because no matter how much or how little work someone did they still were given the same amount of food. Unsurprisingly this, "was found to breed much confusion and discontent."[1]

The Pilgrims, however, were not the type of people to keep doing what does not work. And so, "they began to think how they might raise as much corn as they could, and obtain a better crop than they had done, that they might not still thus languish in misery."[2] And, "after much debate of things" the Pilgrims under the direction of William Bradford, decided that each family ought to "trust to themselves" and keep what they produced instead of putting it into a common storehouse.[3] In essence, the Pilgrims decided to abandon the socialism which had led them to starvation and instead adopt the tenants of the free market.

And what was the result of this change? Well, according to Bradford, this change of course, "had very good success; for it made all hands very industrious, so as much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been."[4] Eventually, the Pilgrims became a fiscally successful colony, paid off their enormous debt, and founded some of the earliest trading posts with the surrounding Indian tribes including the Aptucxet, Metteneque, and Cushnoc locations. In short, it represented one of the most significant economic revolutions which determined the early characteristics of the American nation.

The Pilgrims, of course, did not simply invent these ideas out of thin air but they instead grew out of the intimate familiarity the Pilgrims had with the Bible. The Scriptures provide clear principles for establishing a successful economic system which the Pilgrims looked to. For example, Proverbs 12:11 says, "He that tills his land shall be satisfied with bread." So the Pilgrims purchased land from the Indians and designated lots for every family to individually grow food for themselves. After all, 1 Timothy 5:8 declares, "If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever."

We often think that the battle against Socialism is a new fight sprouting out of the writings of Karl Marx which are so blindly and foolishly followed today by those deceived by leftist irrationality. However, America's fight against the evil of socialism goes back even to our very founding during the colonial period. Thankfully, our forefathers decided to reject the tenants of socialism and instead build their new colony upon the ideology of freedom, liberty, hard work, and individual responsibility.

So, this Thanksgiving, let's thank the Pilgrims for defeating socialism and let us look to their example today in our ongoing struggle for freedom.

Like most people, biologist and science journalist Matt Ridley just wants the truth. When it comes to the origin of COVID-19, that is a tall order. Was it human-made? Did it leak from a laboratory? What is the role of gain-of-function research? Why China, why now?

Ridley's latest book, "Viral: The Search for the Origin of COVID-19," is a scientific quest to answer these questions and more. A year ago, you would have been kicked off Facebook for suggesting COVID originated in a lab. For most of the pandemic, the left practically worshipped Dr. Anthony Fauci. But lately, people have been poking around. And one of the names that appears again and again is Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance and a longtime collaborator and funder of the virus-hunting work at Wuhan Institute of Virology.

If you watched Glenn Beck's special last week, "Crimes or Cover-Up? Exposing the World's Most Dangerous Lie," you learned some very disturbing things about what our government officials — like Dr. Fauci — were doing around the beginning of the pandemic. On the latest "Glenn Beck Podcast," Glenn sat down with Ridley to review what he and "Viral" co-author Alina Chan found while researching — including a "fascinating little wrinkle" from the Wuhan Institute of Virology called "7896."
