Glenn thrashes Sen. Lindsey Graham's idiotic comments on Egypt

Glenn’s blood hit the boiling point on radio this morning in reaction to some pretty remarkable audio from Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) about the crisis in Egypt. During a visit to Cairo earlier this week, the Senators sat down with CBS News and admitted that the country is “just days or weeks” away from “all out bloodshed.”

“Well, I was at the doctor early this morning because I thought I had a brain aneurysm last night,” Glenn said. “It was in the 5 o’clock hour, happened about 5:20, when Buck Sexton actually played the audio of Lindsey Graham on CBS News reporting on what their fact‑finding mission in Egypt found. Here it is:”

REPORTER: Are you alarmed by what you see happening in Egypt?

GRAHAM: Oh, my God. I didn't know it was this bad. These folks are just days or weeks from all‑out bloodshed.

Yes, that was a senior United States Senator admitting he had absolutely no idea what was going on in Egypt.

“I can't take it,” Glenn said disgusted.

“You had no idea, Lindsey,” Pat asked. “Have a television set, do you? “

On last night’s Glenn Beck Program, Glenn laid out three things no one is talking about in regards to the Middle East. “And wait until it really slides off,” he said. “There are three things that you need to know about the Middle East today.”

  1. Egypt could collapse soon
  2. Libya is on the brink
  3. Turkey just gutted its military

“One, Egypt is – many people, including Lindsey Graham say now that – it is days from flying out of complete control,” Glenn explained. “What we're talking about now is not Civil War. We are talking about massive bloodshed. We're talking about Syria happening in Egypt.”

This type of conflict would have worldwide implications. Chiefly, Israel would be in immediate danger and the global economy could spiral out of control.

“If Egypt spirals out of control, that means the Gaza Strip is no longer monitored at all,” Glenn said. “Israel would now have massive fighters going in. There's nobody standing guard against Israel.”

Furthermore, there is the issue of oil. In 2008, oil prices hit $140/barrel and the U.S. economy collapsed. Today, speculation is that oil could hit $300/barrel. “So you know, 80% of the world's oil goes through Egypt and the Suez Canal… If you shut down the Suez Canal, they are now saying that the price of a barrel of oil could skyrocket,” he explained. “It was 140 where we collapsed. 140. They are saying now that if they close the Suez Canal, if there is massive strife in the Middle East, you are looking at $300 a barrel of oil. It's not like you're looking at $10 a gallon gasoline. You'll be lucky to have gasoline.”

When someone like Sen. Graham, who is often touted for his foreign policy expertise, claims to not “know it was that bad” in Egypt, it’s safe to assume the government is in no way prepared for the worst case scenario.

“That's what's just happening in Egypt,” Glenn said. “But if you go west of Egypt, just over the border, you're smack dab into Libya. Now, Libya, the leader of Libya… [is] saying that they are within a week of collapse themselves because the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda are fighting, and Islamists are about to take over.”

Both Egypt and Libya on the verge of collapse, but there is another situation of instability, this time in Turkey, that threatens the balance of power in the Mid East region. Turkey was admitted into NATO under the guise that it could never devolve into an Islamic state because of the military’s protection of the Constitution, but now it appears the military has lost that control.

“Do you know what [the prime minister of Turkey] did,” Glenn asked. “He's arrested and put in prison for life the generals of the military in Turkey. Turkey is about to come undone.”

So what is the solution?

“Here's the good news. There's a solution in the Middle East. Because people in the Muslim Brotherhood, and people with Al Qaeda, and the people on the street are all talking about the same solution,” Glenn said. “There's a way to put the genie back in the bottle. There's a way to make it all work. And guess what that is: The magic Caliphate.”

Glenn has been mocked and ridiculed for talking about the inevitability of the Caliphate for quite some time, but he had a bold message this morning.

“I haven't been this angry in quite some time,” Glenn said. “The one thing I don't ever get right is time… I am wrong on timing, but I am telling you we are about to have an economic impact, the likes of which the globe has never seen. When – not if – when all these chickens come home to roost, you have mass chaos, not just in the Middle East, but it will slide the entire globe into chaos. And that means an economic impact… And then comes the giant reset… If you don't know history, you're about to repeat it… We have not progressed. If anything, we have regressed.”

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.
