Glenn: We are a nation at war with Assad, period.

Since President Obama put forth his “comprehensive and sustained counter-terrorism strategy” to “degrade” and “destroy” ISIS last week, his administration has struggled to form a consensus as to whether or not we are actually at war with the terror group. On radio this morning, Glenn made a bold declaration: The United States is not preparing for war with ISIS. It is preparing for war with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

“Make no mistake. We are not at war with ISIS. We are a nation at war or preparing to go to war with Assad, period. That's what's happening,” Glenn said definitively. “The President wanted to go to war with Assad. He wanted to destabilize the region with that dictator and get him out of there. And that's exactly what's happening.”

The White House has publically warned the Assad regime not to interfere with U.S. airstrikes in the region. During an appearance on CBS’ Face the Nation, Secretary of State John Kerry said the U.S. will not “cooperate” with the Syrian government.

"We're not going to coordinate it with Syria," Kerry said. "We will certainly want to de-conflict and make certain that they're not about to do something that they might regret even more seriously. But we're not going to coordinate, it's not a cooperative effort. We're going to do what they haven't done, what they had plenty of opportunity to do, which is to take on ISIL and to degrade it and eliminate it as a threat."

Additionally, Obama held a closed door meeting with a “group of visitors” last week during which he explained what he would do if was an “advisor to ISIS.” The contents of that conversation have since been leaked.

“The White House advisors just leaked one of the most damning things I ever heard the President say – any president say,” Glenn said.

TheBlaze reports:

The New York Times, citing “several people who were in the meeting,” reports that the president claimed Islamic State terrorists made a serious strategic mistake by murdering the hostages. He then reportedly revealed what he would’ve suggested if he had been “an adviser to ISIS.” The discussion reportedly occurred just before his primetime address to the nation on the Islamic State threat.

Obama said he would have released the hostages and pinned notes to their chests that urged the United States, “Stay out of here; this is none of your business,” according to the Times report. If the terrorists had done that, Obama reportedly argued, the group may have been able to diminish public support for U.S. military action.

“That was intentionally released. This is a president who does not want to engage in any of this stuff,” Glenn explained. “So he's saying, ‘Look, guys, we don't want do fight you… But what you're doing is pissing off the American people, and I have to do something’… That's what's happening.”

But perhaps the most important piece of this puzzle is the fact that part of Obama’s counter-terrorism strategy involves the arming and training of “moderate” Syrian rebels.

The only problem?

New reports indicate those same rebels have signed a nonaggression agreement with ISIS, in which "the two parties will respect a truce until a final solution is found and they promise not to attack each other because they consider the principal enemy to be the Nussayri regime."

Glenn believes if the Obama Administration was actually serious about defeating ISIS it would be arming and aiding the Kurdish Peshmerga forces that are the moderate force in the region.

“Why aren’t we arming the Kurds? If you want to arm someone, you arm the Kurds,” Glenn said. “You don't arm the Muslim extremists.”

But, again, Obama’s goal is not to decimate ISIS. Rather, he is looking to organize the Middle East.

“[But] this isn't really about the Kurds. This isn't really about ISIS. This is about Assad,” he concluded. “Hear me, these are the words of the President: Organizing the Middle East. If you want to organize the Middle East, you have to get rid of the dictators. This is a target on Assad. Make no mistake.”

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
