WATCH: What is the conflict in Syria all about?

Tonight, I want to show you what Syria is really all about and boil it down to what Progressives say they’re against, but see, they never really are – oil and money. That’s what this war is really all about.

Maybe that’s why George Bush fought the last war. I don’t know. I mean, they said Dick Cheney was Darth Vader. Darth Vader, right? Well, let me show you what this one’s really about. Russia here has been partners with Syria for a long time. Why? Well, for one reason. This is the Mediterranean here, and the only other port that they can pull into is right here. So all of their ships that are out in the Mediterranean and go all out, they all have to come back in to refuel here, unless Syria allows them in.

So Syria is critical. It’s critical because of their land mass. They have no access to warm water. They are in ice lock or land lock everywhere else. Syria provides that access to water. Without it, Russia is vulnerable. Shipping would be extremely difficult for Russia. And we’ve seen in the past few days as the anti-Syrian rhetoric increases, Russia sends their ships back. They send actual missile cruisers right here, and they move their warships along the naval vessels to help Assad’s regime.

Syria is important because the ships, but there’s another reason, a dirty little secret that the media won’t let you in on this time around, that this is a war for oil, and here’s how: Ronald Reagan said in the 1980s if you ever, ever let Russia build a pipeline, it will be a stranglehold on Europe. Well, in 2016, there will be a new oil and natural gas pipeline that is going to open up, and where is it going to open up?

It’s going to open up right here and go up into Europe, but first, it goes like that. It’s in Syria. It is the most strategic place in the region. It’s the strategic place for a pipeline to flow into Europe. It comes from Russia, and it goes through Iran into Syria. That’s how it works. Well, there was another offer. Instead of the pipeline coming down like this and then up into Russia, the other offer was for a similar pipeline, and it went like this. It was a proposal by the great country of Qatar, but they were denied. It was the Islamic nations’ pipeline.

John Kerry recently said the Arab nations have offered to pay for the entire war in Syria. Really? Saudi Arabia is one of them. Really? Qatar is the other one. Wow, the kindness of their hearts, or is it the kindness of their radical Islamist hearts? It’s all about money and oil. They want a pipeline, and they’re prepared to do anything to get this pipeline as opposed to this pipeline.

By the way, you lose either pipeline. It doesn’t make a difference to us, but it makes a heck of a lot of the difference a Russia. It makes a heck of a lot difference to Iran, and it makes a whole lot of a difference to all the people who we’re cozy with. By the way, we know Saudi Arabia, they’re the ones who we went with on our hands and begged them for money during the banking crisis, but Qatar, why is that name so familiar?

Oh, I remember. Qatar is the founding nation and the sole supporter of Al Jazeera TV. Oh, that’s right. No wonder so many Progressives in the administration are singing the praises of Al Jazeera. It is all about money and oil. This is a war for oil. That was the mantra during the Iraq crisis, right? All you have to do is pull the mask off of Darth Vader, and you see him right there. It’s Dick Cheney. Is it? Pull the mask off of Dick Cheney – uh oh, it looks like exactly the same game.

But they’re not calling it war for oil today. No, they’re not saying that, but they should be because that’s the layer that everybody is missing. And meanwhile, our president is going to come out and say we’ve got to get involved because of the children. Isn’t that what they accused Bush of doing? It’s amazing how Progressives continue to play the same game over and over again, and it will succeed unless you wake up.

Good news, I think you are awake, but let me give you some ammunition when we come back.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
