Iranian warships headed toward U.S. maritime border for first time

Iran is attempting to flex its military might. On Saturday, the commander of Iran’s Northern Navy Fleet, Admiral Afshin Rezayee Haddad, said Iranian warships in the Atlantic Ocean would travel close to U.S. maritime borders for the first time. The following day, the Islamic Republic’s state television broadcasted a documentary simulating attacks on an American aircraft carrier and Israeli cities.

According to TheBlaze, IRNA quoted Haddad as saying the fleet is approaching U.S. maritime borders for the first time. The Islamic Republic considers the move as a response to U.S. naval deployments near its own coastlines. The voyage comes amid an ongoing push by Iran to demonstrate its ability to project power across the Middle East and beyond. The ships are on a three-month mission and are carrying some 30 navy academy cadets for training in addition to their regular crews.

The documentary, meanwhile, was first reported on by the Times of Israel and was presented as a demonstration of Iran’s potential retaliation to an American or Israeli strike on its nuclear facilities. Titled “The Nightmare of Vultures”, it video is set to the backdrop of a dramatic Hollywood-like soundtrack. The simulation involves Iranian drones launching missiles at and destroying the USS Abraham Lincoln in the Persian Gulf as well as American military jets and helicopters taking off from the vessel.

Check out the video below:

While the simulation is utterly implausible given the Israeli and U.S. defense capabilities, one has to question what this means for foreign policy.

“It's cheesy. It's ridiculous. But it shows their intent,” Pat said on radio this morning. “They show these drones flying over Israel and just wiping the cities out and targets out. They're facing absolute no defense from the Israelis what is over. Then they show them attacking the USS Lincoln in the Gulf and just wreaking destruction on the U.S. and Israeli targets.”

Glenn couldn’t help but see the similarities between this unfolding incident and the Chris Stewart’s series Wrath and Righteousness.

“I really think you should read Wrath and Righteousness. It's a great book. It's a great series… Everybody on the staff read it when we first published it… and everybody said the same thing. I don't know the difference between fact and fiction anymore because of what's happening. It is so closely mirroring everything that's going on in the Middle East,” Glenn said. “Our president is claiming that, you know, we're on the road to really great things with the Iranians, and look at what they're doing.”

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.

Disney actress Gina Carano was just the latest to be canceled for being vocally conservative — this time for making a Holocaust comparison. But on this week's episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," renowned Jewish historian Edwin Black explains how Gina's comparison wasn't exactly out of line: The second phase of the Holocaust, exclusion, "is like cancel culture."

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril. He told Glenn he believes our culture and our history are being erased. Our ideals are being censored and our values are being mocked.
