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."

Our Fourth Amendment, which protects our right to privacy, has never been in more danger. Journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain how the digital world has given leaders — both in government and corporations — the ability to not only spy on Americans, but to track their patterns of behavior, too.

Lara explained why, even if you think you have nothing to hide, you should be very concerned. Because these digital "human terrain maps" could be used to manipulate you in any way those in control see fit.

"The purpose of your privacy is much more than just being out of public view," Lara said. "There is really nothing that's more central to our democracy than the right to privacy. I mean, all of the rights in the Constitution have a real purpose, and a real value, and if we allow people to take them away from us, we voluntarily are surrendering that. We are lambs to the slaughter.

"They're not just looking at what you have to hide. They're looking to manipulate you into doing what they want. These are control systems. That's what they are," Lara explained. "What they do with the information is they create a 'human terrain map' for every single person on the planet, anyone within a digital signature or within their reach. They are creating a human terrain map that can be used against you, by anyone."

Who were the people and groups involved with coronavirus research, and what really went down before and after the pandemic began? On "Glenn TV" this week, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to outline a tale of negligence and then, coverup. The elites of the world - the people calling themselves experts - trusted the Chinese Communist Party with one of the most dangerous weapons we can imagine on this planet--a virus.

Glenn reveals who was involved in a definitive timeline, and argues: If proof of a lab leak does come out, the worlds needs to know EVERYONE that was involved. We must expose the coverup and attempt to control the narrative of the pandemic origins. Everyone from Big Tech, the media, the Chinese and even our own government have been involved. What lies behind the coverup could reveal the dirty secret that, in order to cut corners, the academic elites and government entrusted Communist China with a civilization-killing virus.

BlazeTV host Mark Levin said his new book, "American Marxism," provides proof that we're not just facing a coming Marxist revolution — it's already here.

Many Americans remain unconvinced, believing recent moves from the far left and the Democratic Party are just passing phases. But this is not a "fad," Levin told Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday.

"This isn't progressivism, or social activism, or democratic socialism. This is Marxism. Now, it may not be Marxism in every particular. But it's an Americanized form of Marxism," Levin explained.

"You need to pay attention to what's taking place ... You've seen it with your own two eyes. You saw the riots all summer long. You saw Black Lives Matter, which is headed by an openly proud Marxist. You see Antifa, which is a Marxist anarchist organization. You see the media, that you have been watching and reading, endorse every single one of these movements," he added.

"People have been brainwashed, or ... haven't been paying attention. They view this as a passing fad," Levin went on to say. "It's not. We all need to wake up to this. And if we have little differences, moderate Democrats, Libertarians and so forth, you better put them aside right now. Because we have a common enemy. I say enemy, not opponent. Not adversary. Enemy. And we need to be focused on defeating that enemy, rather than fighting among ourselves."

Electric vehicles are the wave of the future. They are so much better for the environment. At least that's what we have been told, but is this correct?

On his TV special, Glenn Beck explained how electric vehicles (EVs) might not actually be the environmental solution we've been led to believe. In fact, they may not be a solution at all.

Glenn shared a recent article from LiveScience that reported:

A 2014 study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences looked at the entire life cycle of an EV's emissions, from mining the metals required for the batteries to producing the electricity needed to power them, and then compared this with the average emissions of a gas-powered vehicle. The team found that when electric vehicles are charged with coal-powered electricity, they're actually worse for the environment than conventional gasoline cars.

He next shared an article from The Greenage, which stated:

The Union of Concerned Scientists has calculated that manufacturing a mid-sized EV with an 84-mile range results in about 15 percent more emissions than manufacturing an equivalent gasoline vehicle. For larger, longer-range EVs that travel more than 250 miles per charge, the manufacturing emissions can be as much as 68 percent higher.

Noting how electric vehicles and other fossil-fuel alternatives require the use of mined minerals like lithium, cobalt, zinc, copper, and nickel, among others, Glenn quoted an International Energy Agency report that warned reaching the goals of the Paris Agreement "would mean a quadrupling of mineral requirements for clean energy technologies by 2040. An even faster transition, to hit net-zero globally by 2050, would require six times more mineral inputs in 2040 than today."

"Can [you] predict which country is the world leader in processing the minerals needed for these batteries? Right, China," Glenn stated. "The average EV requires over 200 kilograms of minerals. The average gas vehicle requires 40 kilograms of minerals, mostly copper. A single EV has 22 pounds of lithium in it ... yet another way that the green reset of American energy is putting us all at the mercy of Communist China."

"Oh, and remember during the Obama administration when the world was gonna end' over fracking?" Glenn asked. "Well, the Institute for Energy Research now says, and I quote, 'Mining and processing of lithium, however, turns out to be far more environmentally harmful than what turned out to be the unfounded issues with fracking.'"
