More civil wars coming to the Middle East?

The uprisings that took place in Egypt a little over a year ago sparked what we now know as the Arab Spring, which resulted in violent protests spreading across the Middle East. Among the impacted countries was Syria, which broke out into a brutal civil war that has killed upwards of 90,000 people. With the escalation of the conflict now including possible involvement from superpowers on both sides of the fight, there's no reason to believe that the violence is approaching a halt. In fact, it looks like more fighting is on the way for Syria, Egypt, and other countries in the region.

While the media may have you believe that the Egyptian people had a "successful" democratic uprising that enabled them to elect a new leader and that the country is back on track, the truth is far from that. Tension is high in Egypt, and last week TheBlaze's Buck Sexton spent the week in the Middle East and has first hand information about the increasing hostility and violence in the region.

Buck joined Glenn on radio this morning to discuss what he saw while he was on the ground in the Middle East.

Buck explained that the one-year anniversary of Mohammed Morsi's rule will be on June 30th.

"He is the guy who has run this country into the ground," Buck said of Morsi. "Even people who are completely, which, how should I say this, who voted for him in the beginning. I spoke with activists, people who are in Tahrir Square from the start who looking at me with shame in their eyes. And I've got to say I think understandably so given what's happened because they voted for Morsi. So‑called liberals, people who wanted change in the country, and they're outraged."

"Now here's the problem," Buck continued, "nothing can really legally come of these massive demonstrations. And we're talking millions, Glenn. We're not talking about thousands. They think there will be millions of people Countrywide who will demonstrate in some way. This could lead to bloody clashes in Cairo. The military who sort of has been standing on the sidelines and watching the Muslim Brotherhood just completely run this country into the ground. The military has said, "Oh, we might step in." Well, guess what. If the military steps in, the possibility of an actual coup becomes very high. If they don't step in, you have very powerful factions in this country that are warring on the streets and nothing to stop them."

Buck went on to explain that he doesn't know who will step in — he's not sure that they know either…but the protests or "rallies" are coming.

"We'll watch for these protests starting on the 28th. I actually got a flyer from the Muslim Brotherhood — starting on the 28th, that's when they are going to get the rallies going," Buck explained. "And if these things start to get violent and out of control and you don't see a military presence on the streets, nobody knows where it's going to end."

"The only other thing I'd say, Glenn, is there's a distinct possibility that we may see some sort of U.S. escalation with regard to Syria as well," Buck continued. "This of course affects everything in the broader Middle East, and I have something up right now on TheBlaze that shows everybody what I learned in the refugee camps in Zaatari, which I would encourage people to go and check out because they've got everything there.  They have got Al‑Qaeda infiltrations, they've got stories of war.  I mean, that's really a window into what's happening there and everything is connected."

What Buck saw on the ground confirmed many of Glenn's concerns that the Brotherhood and the Jihadists are all working together. They are working towards the same goals.

"We're headed towards a Middle East war if things don't calm down," Buck said. "That's for sure. And Glenn, as anybody who looks at how the world wars broke out in the past, certainly the first one, it was that unforeseen inciting event. It was something that nobody could have predicted and nobody was expecting that caused the world to catch on fire."

"There are plenty of places where there's gasoline on the ground in the Middle East; it's just a question of what the match is going to be."

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
