Who is Obama arming in Syria? Shocking video shows they are not good guys

On radio today, Glenn mentioned the shocking video that hit the internet which appears to show Syrian rebel army leader Abu Sakkar cutting the heart out of a dead Syrian soldier and eating it. These are the radical rebels Obama is arming -- so what does that mean for the new Syria when Assad is ousted?

"There's two stories here that most people will just avoid. On the front page above the fold, Russians send better missiles to help Assad. The second story is war's pressure is causing Syria to break apart. Even if Assad leaves, deep splits imperil the nation's integrity. That's good for Turkey, and remember who the best friend of the president is: Turkey. It's good for Turkey, it is good for Iran, it is horrible, horrible for the Middle East."

"We are fomenting democratic revolution and we are helping them break these things apart so there can be a new Caliphate. This will end up hurting Jordan and whatever crazy stability Saudi Arabia actually supplies."

"Now, there's one other story and I'm trying to confirm, I'm trying to confirm if this is one of the rebels or the rebel groups that we are actually supporting, and I just got this in. Human‑based ‑‑ or U.S.‑based Human Rights Watch identified the rebel as Abu Sakkar, well known rebel leader from the city of Homs, according to BBC News," Glenn said. "This, we're going to post, and I warn you it is absolutely horrific. Came to my attention yesterday afternoon. It is a Syrian rebel shooting a Syrian soldier and then coming over, taking a knife, jamming it into his chest, ripping his chest cavity open, cutting his heart out and then eating it. And it has been as confirmed as you can possibly get."

"Now, what nobody is talking about is I believe these are the rebels we are arming. If you think you can have a better regime from a group of people who will actually eat soldiers' hearts, you're out of your mind. And this is what ‑‑ this is bigger than the scandal. This goes to your security. Are we arming the Syrian rebels? If we are, we're in a de facto war with Russia because Russia is arming the Syrian army, and we are certainly on the wrong side!"

"This thing is going to turn into an absolute nightmare. Christians and Christian churches, you should be opening up your arms to any, any Christian that wants to come ‑‑ you should be reaching out to any Christian that wants to get out of the Middle East, any Jew that wants to get out of the Middle East, although I think the Jews are probably in the safest place. I was thinking about actually getting a place, someplace right in Jerusalem because at least I know God will protect that. We are ‑‑ we are battling powers of darkness beyond your wildest understanding."

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.
