Rand Paul on Benghazi attacks: 'Is admin. involved with running guns through Turkey to Syria?'

Yesterday, Senator Rand Paul confirmed something that Glenn told his audience he thought was going on in Benghazi when the ambassador was killed. Three days into the ordeal Glenn gave his hypothesis that the United States was running guns, and the ambassador was with the CIA in Benghazi, unprotected on 9/11 to reduce the number of witnesses.

"He was meeting and having dinner with, like, the Turkish ambassador or somebody like that. Really, really sketchy stuff," Glenn said.  "You don't have that at a CIA safe house, especially on September 11th, especially in the worst part of Libya.  Especially when you're under attack and you have threats on your life, and you've begged the White House for additional security because they're going to kill you."

Paul's statement was the first confirmation that Glenn could remember hearing from the press that this was in fact what was going on.

Sen. Paul: I still think the one question that's been lost in this whole coverup with this movie being the cause, I really think part of the cause may have been that there was a gun‑running operation going on in Benghazi, leaving Libya, going to Turkey and distributing arms to the rebels.  There are news reports ‑‑

Host:  Now, when you brought that up, Senator ‑‑ excuse me for piping in.  When you brought that up in the hearing with Hillary Clinton, she looked shocked.  She said, "I have no idea what you're talking about."  And, you know, we were just talking about Jennifer Griffin who said perhaps, perhaps the tail end of your question wasn't included that gave it a little more context. 

Sen. Paul:  Well, the thing is that they have interviewed the captain of the ship.  A ship from Libya sailed for Turkey a week before the ambassador was killed.  It was full of arms.  And they interviewed the captain and he actually specifically talks about the distribution of the arms to Syrian rebels.  So it sounds to me as if this is a story that's been reported in the London times, the New York Times, and really I think the administration needs to answer:  Are they involved with running guns through Turkey to Syria.

 

Think this is too farfetched? During these hearings, Leon Penetta admitted to being in favor of arming the Syrian rebels. And he didn't seem to have any problem including the administration with him in this stance.

So who are we arming? Who are the Syrian rebels exactly?

"Who are the Syrian rebels?  Muslim Brotherhood", Glenn said. "That's who the Syrian rebels are.  And we have already said that in Jordan when we have been arming the Syrian rebels in Jordan, the ones we have been giving them to is the Muslim Brotherhood, so the Muslim Brotherhood could decide for us because we don't know the region, where those weapons should go.  That's already out and on the record.  But again nobody seems to care.  So let's send more tanks and fighters to the Muslim Brotherhood and Egypt.  A country and a system completely in collapse, Muslim Brotherhood who says clearly now we're going to wipe all the Jews out of the region and we're going to kill all the Zionists and all the Americans that are part of it, we're going to kill them.  Let's send them some ‑‑ let's send them some fighter jets, shall we?  And still hasn't been stopped."

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.
