Glenn: Are we on the path to war with Russia, Middle East?

Today on radio, Glenn looked at some of the disturbing parallels between FDR and Obama - particularly the state of the country in the buildup to World War 2. Are we about to repeat history?

Glenn gave the audience a quick history of FDR's administration, focusing on his second term. He was able to pass a lot of progressive legislation, most notable The New Deal. FDR was elected in 1933, and this is where Glenn said things started to fall apart. The Supreme Court overturned a lot of the New Deal programs, and members of his own administration became critical of his policies.

"Well, just like with FDR, I think things are falling apart," Glenn said. "And if you look at, for instance, the economy, when the American people...there's going to come a time where everybody's going to know this. 75% of all jobs that have been created in the last year are part time. 75% of all jobs."

Stu added that the ratio of part time jobs to full time jobs is currently 4:1, but usually they are almost 1:1. One of the main causes for the high number of part-time jobs is that employers do not want to have to pay the healthcare costs associated with Obamacare.

"It takes a while to fundamentally transform a nation, and remember the last time this was tried was with FDR," Glenn said. " This time we have exposed the progressives for what they really are and didn't let them get away with it in the cover of darkness. And I think there was enough people where it didn't happen last time, there's enough people in the country that stood up against the GOP, where that wasn't happening last time. They weren't talking about throwing all of the GOP out and starting something new."

In addition to the economy, Glenn said that the latest polls show that Americans are opposed to the President's healthcare plan.

"So now the economy is starting to fray. 75% of all jobs are part time that were created this year. Healthcare is over."

"Healthcare is over. That is the centerpiece. If you don't have healthcare, that weakens the IRS and everything else that he has done. The dollar and the debt, the Fed is completely out of options. There's nothing left now. There's no gas in the tank. You now have to pretty much come out and say, 'All we're doing is printing money' because there's no rhyme or reason for it anymore."

Glenn also said that the President's approval ratings will continue to decline as more information about the NSA and IRS scandals emerge.

"So all of those things are happening here in the United States. Then you have the Muslim Brotherhood. This is really important. They are exposed here. People are starting to go, 'Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute, what's going on with the Muslim Brotherhood? What's all of this all about?' and they are over in the Middle East. We picked the wrong horse. Who would have seen that one coming? And so they are over in the Middle East. So that thing is bubbling over."

"And then you're at the point now where the proxy war is about to be discovered. And when I say 'proxy war', we have been in a proxy war with Iran and Russia for a while now. We have picked sides, and we have picked the side against Russia, I believe against China as well, although I don't believe they're involved in this proxy war. They're just going to be there to hold ‑‑ they're just going to be there to buy everything up after it's all over. But Russia has picked Iran, we have picked the Muslim Brotherhood and Libya and Egypt, and we are going in and we're fighting. It's the United States versus Russia."

"This is what all of us who are my age grew up worried about. This is it. It's been a Cold War, it's been a proxy war, it's been one where nobody really understands it yet, but I think you're about to. I think this whole thing in the Middle East is the beginning of the end of the proxy war and the covert war. You're now going to see an openly hot war, I fear, and the beginning of World War III, which changes everything."

"Remember, if you look at '33, if you consider '33/'08, that makes 1939 when war started all over the world 2014. We're on the same timeline. Same timeline. This doesn't work very long and so progressives, just like Woodrow Wilson, just like Woodrow Wilson and just like FDR, A, what their policies do is stir up all kinds of trouble and so the world goes into war, but they also need war to help cover what they've done."

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.

Watch the video clip below:

Fellow BlazeTV host, Mark Levin, joined Glenn Beck on his exclusive Friday episode of "GlennTV" to discuss why the declassified list of Obama administration officials who were aware of the details of Gen. Michael Flynn's wiretapped phone calls are so significant.

Glenn argued that Obama built a covert bureaucracy to "transform America" for a long time to come, and Gen. Flynn was targeted because he happened to know "where the bodies were buried", making him a threat to Obama's "secret legacy."

Levin agreed, noting the "shocking extent of the police state tactics" by the Obama administration. He recalled several scandalous happenings during Obama's "scandal free presidency," which nobody seems to remember.

Colleges and universities should be home to a lively and open debate about questions both current and timeless, independent from a political bias or rules that stifle speech. Unfortunately for students, speaking out about personal beliefs or challenging political dogma can be a dangerous undertaking. I experienced this firsthand as an undergraduate, and I'm fighting that trend now as an adjunct professor.

In 2013, Glenn Beck was one of the most listened to radio personalities in the world. For a college senior with hopes of working on policy and media, a job working for Glenn was a ticket to big things. I needed a foot in the door and hoped to tap into the alumni network at the small liberal arts school where I was an undergrad. When I met with a career services specialist in early March 2013 about possible alumni connections to Glenn Beck, she disdainfully told me: "Why would you want to work for someone like him?" That was the beginning and end of our conversation.

I was floored by her response, and sent an email to the school complaining that her behavior was inappropriate. Her personal opinions, political or otherwise, I argued, shouldn't play a role in the decision to help students.

That isn't the kind of response a student should hear when seeking guidance and help in kick starting their career. Regardless of the position, a career specialist or professors' opinion or belief shouldn't be a factor in whether the student deserves access to the alumni network and schools' resources.

Now, seven years later, I work full time for a law firm and part time as an adjunct teaching business to undergraduate students. The culture at colleges and universities seems to have gotten even worse, unfortunately, since I was an undergrad.

College is a time to explore, dream big and challenge assumptions.

I never want to see a student told they shouldn't pursue their goals, regardless of their personal or political beliefs. College is a time to explore, dream big and challenge assumptions. I never got access to the alumni network or schools' resources from the career services office.

Lucky for students in 2020, there are several legal organizations that help students protect their rights when an issue goes beyond what can be handled by an undergraduate facing tremendous pressure from a powerful academic institution. Organizations like Speech First and the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), for instance, are resources I wish I knew about at the time.

When I experienced mistreatment from my college, I spoke up and challenged the behavior by emailing the administration and explaining what happened. I received a letter from the career services specialist apologizing for the "unprofessional comment."

What she described in that apology as a "momentary lapse of good judgement" was anything but momentary. It was indicative of the larger battle for ideas that has been happening on college campuses across the country. In the past seven years, the pressure, mistreatment and oppression of free expression have only increased. Even right now, some are raising concerns that campus administrations are using the COVID-19 pandemic to limit free speech even further. Social distancing guidelines and crowd size may both be used to limit or refuse controversial speakers.

Students often feel pressure to conform to a college or university's wishes. If they don't, they could be expelled, fail a class or experience other retribution. The college holds all the cards. On most campuses, the burden of proof for guilt in student conduct hearings is "more likely than not," making it very difficult for students to stand up for their rights without legal help.

As an adjunct professor, every student who comes to me for help in finding purpose gets my full support and my active help — even if the students' goals run counter to mine. But I have learned something crucial in my time in this role: It's not the job of an educator to dictate a student's purpose in life. I'm meant to help them achieve their dreams, no matter what.
