No war? Syria allegedly accepts Russia’s proposal

Ahead of President Obama’s national address this evening, reports out this morning suggest Syria has agreed to a Russian proposal that will require Bashar al-Assad to hand over any chemical weapons in the country to international control.

TheBlaze reports:

Syria said Tuesday it has accepted Russia’s proposal to place its chemical weapons under international control for subsequent dismantling.

Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem said Tuesday after meeting with Russian parliament speaker that his government quickly “agreed to the Russian initiative.”

Al-Moallem added that Syria did so to “uproot U.S. aggression.”

So is U.S. military action against Syria off the table now? This morning on radio, Glenn explained why he doesn’t think so.

Despite the obvious foreign policy blunder on the side of the Administration, President Obama has emerged relatively unscathed.

“But this is how the media helps you, right,” Stu asked. “I mean, you can have a huge mistake. The other side of the world calls you on it – embarrasses your entire policy. You find a way out of it when [the opinion is] 5‑to‑1 against you in the United States, and the media gives you credit for winning the day. They are saying it's a break through in Syria, a break through. I mean, how do you lose?”

“You don't,” Glenn explained. “That's why he's arrogant and has no self‑examination. And so it's not necessarily incompetence as much as there is no learning curve there. [President Obama] has no learning curve because he has no reason to learn. There's no consequence in his life. I mean, no responsibility.”

When you consider how handily President Obama won the 2012 election, the lack of accountability becomes clear.

“He's never held responsibility for absolutely anything in his life… which [is why] he is dangerous.”

So do we still strike Syria? Pat was 90% certain we would not.

“If [Syria] accepts the deal as it was outlined… and it really works out like that, yeah, I think there's a 90% chance they don't strike,” Pat said. “Their back is against the wall.”

Stu, however, wasn’t so sure. “I don't think it's 90%. I have to say that I think they want to do this, and I think there are so many outs here,” he said. “I mean, they could just say, ‘Look, there's more weapons that they haven't turned over.’”

“None of us can say,” Glenn concluded. “Now, imagine you're an ally. What we're saying is: Is he going to do the right thing for the country? Will he actually go through with what he has said? Will he take the opportunity to back the world up from the brink of war? I'm not exactly sure of that.”

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
