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.”

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
