NYT: Yeah, we were wrong on the Arab Spring thing

Now that the post revolution euphoria has settled down a bit and the media has slept off their drunken celebration of the Arab Spring, the reality of the outcome is becoming a bit clearer. Given there’s a radical Islamist president who, along with instituting Sharia Law and waging Jihad, is also trying to gain the release of a convicted terrorist from a North Carolina prison. Suddenly the revolution doesn’t sound so exciting, does it.

The New York Times reported:

 The overthrow of dictators across the Arab world and the rise of Islamists to new influence or power is forcing Washington to reassess decades-old judgments. The most important is in Egypt, where Mr. Morsi, representing the region’s most powerful Islamist movement, the Muslim Brotherhood, won a close election. His move on Sunday to revive the dissolved Parliament had Western experts scrambling to understand his strategy.

In Tunisia, a once-banned Islamist party, Ennahda, won a plurality of seats in elections last year, and Islamists have won new support in Yemen as well. In Saturday’s voting,Libya appeared to buck the trend, when a coalition led by a moderate political scientist seemed to edge out two Islamist parties.

But in a sign of the political potency of religion, the leader of the winning coalition,Mahmoud Jibril, went out of his way to reject the “secular” label for his National Forces Alliance and reached out to the Islamists. “There are no extremists,” he said.

The article also notes that the new Egyptian president has called for the release of Omar Abdel Rahman, now 74, a " leading figure in the group during its violent days. He was sentenced in 1996 for plotting a 'war of urban terrorism'against the United States, beginning with the bombings of tunnels and landmarks in New York City."

"By the way, a new Muslim cleric in England with a group called the United Muslim Nations International has released a new 23‑page pamphlet called the Global Islamic Civilization:  The Power of a Nation Revived.  This had 23‑page booklet a lot of people will dismiss.  Do not be one of them.  The 23‑page booklet calls and outlines the plan for the reestablishment of a Caliphate.  In the 23‑page booklet it explains its goals, quote:  Christianity should be destroyed and wiped from the face of the Earth.  It is an evil demonic and Antichrist system.  All Christians are in complete ignorance.  The only true religion is Islam," Glenn added.

"We had a Muslim terrorist meet with our president, and our president is now meeting with the head of the Muslim Brotherhood from the new president of Egypt, and he has called for the destruction of Israel.  He has also called for the reestablishment of the Caliphate with its headquarters, its global seat of power, in Jerusalem.  And our president has invited him to the White House.  The president is knowingly involved and in bed with Muslim extremists and terrorists," Glenn said.

"We will not last two terms with this man. We will not last two terms."

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
