The truth your friends need to know about what is happening in the Middle East


On Monday's TV show, Glenn dedicated time to explaining what is really going on in the Middle East. Back in 2008, one of the main arguments that people made in their support of Barack Obama was that he would repair America's image around the world. He would pull us out of wars, and somehow he would make everyone like America again and facilitate world peace. That was the message that the Obama camp gave the American people, and they have failed to deliver. And their latest plea is simply "Give us another four years". But is Obama's foreign policy really something we want four more years of? That's what Glenn wanted to know Monday night.

Since taking office, Obama has done the following:

- Signed the NDAA into law - making it legal to assassinate Americans without trial

- Personally oversees a 'Secret Kill List'

- Waged war on Libya without congressional approval

- Started a covert, drone war in Yemen

- Escalated the proxy war in Somalia

- Escalated the CIA drone war in Pakistan

- Will maintain a presence in Iraq even after "ending" war

- Sharply escalated the war in Afghanistan

- Secretly deployed US special forces to 75 countries

- Sold $30 billion of weapons to the dictatorship in Saudi Arabia

Glenn also took issue with the President's stance on the Arab Spring, saying,  "Obama stood behind the Arab Spring - and now Reuters is the latest to begrudgingly admit that it has completely backfired, exactly what I warned would happen."

Reuters reports:

Still, the "Arab Spring" appears not to have made as many friends for America as Americans might have hoped.

The very countries in which Washington helped facilitate popular-backed regime change last year - Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and Yemen - are seeing some of the greatest anti-West backlash. 

The young pro-democracy activists who leapt to the fore in 2011, Washington now believes, have relatively little clout. That leaves U.S and European officials having to deal with groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood.

Glenn also took issue with President Obama referring to Netanyahu's concerns over their safety from a nuclear Iran as "noise", a comment that mirrored statements from Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who also referred to Israel's protests against their nuclear program as "noise".

As an aside, Glenn pointed out that there are now reports surfacing that Ahmadinejad will be meeting with leaders of Occupy Wall Street during his visit to the United States.

“Ahmadinejad is also set to meet American university students, artists, intellectuals and elites, including Occupy Wall Street anti-capitalist protestors, despite the ongoing efforts made by the pro-Zionist lobbies to prevent direct link between American people and the Iranian president,” the state-controlled Fars News Agency report explained.

Based on all of the above, Glenn was left wondering how anyone could think that re-electing President Obama will fix relations between America and the countries in the Middle East. And if things are only going to get worse, is he really the best person to lead America through increasingly difficult time ahead? As Glenn said on radio this morning, Americans have forty-two days until they have to make a choice that will shape America forever.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
