Are we watching a New World Order take shape? How ISIS and Russia are about to change the globe

Below is a transcript of Monday's opening monologue. Scroll down for a free video highlight - and sign up now for TheBlaze TV to watch the full episode. Don't miss The Root: Armies of Armageddon Thursday at 5pm ET for more on this topic. 

Well, hello, America. I’m going to lay that out a little bit more clearly for you today. That was early this morning. Welcome to The Glenn Beck Program and to TheBlaze. This is the network that you are building.

Vladimir Putin literally vanished for nearly two weeks, but nobody seemed to care. The media was more interested in the political bickering over Hillary Clinton and the emails. You would think that the president of a major country going AWOL would be a bigger story. Imagine if our president didn’t show up. Okay, well, that’s a bad example. Hang on, let’s imagine that. Ooh…okay, imagine he didn’t show up. People would be interested, right?

American news would go all Jerry Springer, and that’s really what we’re doing now. We’re just playing left and right games. We’re playing the nonsense. I really hate being the guy that brings you this really bad news, but no one else is offering any meaningful perspective, so we don’t really have much of a choice.

All week, we’re going to be wargaming what I believe is coming, and I told you this a couple of weeks ago that I feel compelled to stand on these things and tell them to you until you really understand them, because you need to understand what the power players around the globe are actually saying and doing, their words and their actions. We’ll follow the logical trail to the logical outcome.

You may disagree with us, but it’s what I believe, and it all culminates on Thursday with The Root: The Armies of Armageddon, which traces the evolution of jihad and explains how and why ethnic Fascism and Islamic Fascism are rising and how they’re tied together.

[...]

Another chalkboard that I did in 2011 when GBTV first started and came on the air was this. I wanted to bring it back because, and I want to make this very, very clear, this is 2011 that I did this. Time and order may vary wildly. I still agree with that, but I want to show you where we are on this.

This is what I said would happen to the world to establish a new world order. The Arab Spring, war and revolution would spread. The caliphate would gather with Turkey at the center. I was one country off. It is Syria. Israel the focus of the hate, I think we can say that’s true. Pressure extends to Europe and America, that’s what’s happening now over in Europe.

European fall, the civil unrest, the default and then the collapse of the euro, the riots joined by Islamic protesters, and war and civil war, this is where I really want to focus today, but then I said that we’d get the American Spring. Again, I put these in consecutive order, but this is not obviously the time. Times will vary wildly.

Network framework completed, in other words, everything that this new government that we’re building would be completed by then. All of our pressure points would hit, our military would be stretched, our people would be stretched, our churches would be stretched, everything. Poverty push, we would be discouraging people from working. Economic hardship and eventually a collapse, riots and civil war, that we’re going to leave for another time. Hopefully that never happens, but so far all of this has happened and now this.

Civil unrest, we’re starting to see that. Default and collapse of the euro, we are starting to see that. It is now in negative gain. The treasury bills for Germany, they are now offering negative interest. Riots joined by the Islamic whoever, that would be, we’re seeing that right now. Then war, this pertains to Russia.

I want to show you on this map what I mean by that, and I’ll try to explain this a little bit better than I did in that clip this morning. Russia is playing for this part of the world between these two seas right here. They want their old territory back. They want all of this back and then some. They are trying to reestablish the third Roman Empire, and the third Roman Empire was centered here in Crimea. They have already taken that.

We have just done Operation Atlantic Resolve, which means unbeknownst to most of us because our media just doesn’t care to cover important things, Operation Atlantic Resolve, we have put troops and tanks and everything else here in this area, and we have drawn a line saying as NATO you are not crossing this.

Okay, so now Putin disappears, comes back more of a hardline, and that hardline wants to take the Ukraine which is right here across that line—Russia trying to reclaim the land that they believe is there. We’ve put up our defensive line, the Operation Atlantic Resolve, and the caliphate, the caliphate is pushing another way. Here is where the caliphate is, in Syria. I said that it would actually be in Turkey.

The reason why I said it would be in Turkey is because the other important iconic place in the world was in Turkey, Istanbul. That was another that used to be Constantinople. It was a very important religious, for Christians, religious center point. Most people think of Rome as the Christian empire, but it’s not. It is now.

It was here, here, and at the time when the Arab world was sweeping through the Middle East and coming up here, they were stopped in Paris. It was in the 1300s that the French pushed them back through Spain. So, if you think like somebody who was, you know, stuck in the 1300s, you would want these guys. This is a Rome to you. This is Rome to you. We have to start thinking like they think.

Now, what happened, Moscow is destabilizing Europe by funding the neo-Nazis, PEGIDA, the Golden Dawn. There’s Nazis here. There’s Nazis here. There’s Nazis here. There’s Nazis here, and all of that money is coming in from Moscow. This is a collision course with Putin and the West, and this is what you have to understand, what Putin is doing here is Putin is sending all of this money over to Europe because he’s saying the Christians have lost their way. The United States of America is not standing up our Christendom anymore. Who is really standing up?

Because in the caliphate and because we’ve destabilize the Middle East, all of this has been destabilized, and where are all of the refugees going? They’re all going up into Italy. Two hundred thousand refugees and illegal immigrants have come up into Europe just in what, the last quarter, 200,000. Can you imagine having a bunch of people from Tunisia or Libya or Egypt or Syria coming through your border, 200,000 of them?

That’s why you have the neo-Nazis starting to rise up, because just like our governments, their governments aren’t doing anything about it. They’re not stopping any of the illegal immigration. So, what’s going to happen, I believe, is they’re going to hit Paris, and that will excite all of the people to come up here and here and up through here. It will start to squeeze Europe.

When that happens, as I said, this line of NATO will fall back around here, and Moscow will push this way and this way. Then we’re going to be left with a question that we had in the 1940s, do we fight the Fascists and the Communists or do we side with the Communists to beat the Fascists? We decided we would band with the Communists. So, this time it will be, oh geez, Russia is a really bad guy again, the Fascist there. Do we side with the Fascist or do we side with ISIS? We will pick Russia.

Russia and ISIS are the two driving forces steering the globe closer to the edge of world war. Let me take you to Russia. Let me give you an update on what has happened with Putin. He finally reappeared this morning, and he joked about the gossip surrounding his disappearance, but he never disclosed what the actual reason for his ten-day escape was. So, why was he gone?

Well, let me show you a few things that have happened, because I don’t have the answer, but let me give you a few things that bother me. Before the disappearance, a Putin critic, we’ve shown you, got whacked. Now, this is the guy who was on our side. This is the only guy that if Putin was going to get whacked himself we would say, “Okay, whew!” but he got whacked in an obvious hit job. At the same time, you have the head of the military, Igor Girkin, saying that Putin is going to end up like Czar Nicholas or Milosevic if he doesn’t straighten up. Those ended in a coup and death.

Then Putin goes missing. Wild rumors began to circulate—he’s dealing with a love child, there’s a coup, he’s had a stroke, he’s dead. While he’s missing, and this is important to notice, the state media—remember that—the state media released a documentary where Putin said Russia was ready to go nuclear if need be. This was a message to the West. Then this morning Putin returned. He joked about being gone for a while, and the first thing he did was order a massive scale military drill over the polar cap.

Why would you do it over the polar cap? Because the polar cap allows you to come over into the NATO territory. So, let me put this into context of Operation Atlantic Resolve. In response to Russia’s recent aggression in the Ukraine, the U.S. Army launched a massive military convoy stretching over 1,000 miles through six European countries, forming the defensive line against Russia.

We warned in our special The Root: Red Storm Rising that this would end in one of two ways, either Putin would get more aggressive or Putin wouldn’t be aggressive enough, and extremists would grow impatient and seek a coup. So, the missing Putin, was this a warning to Putin to say “Do as we say” or was it just about a love child?

I will tell you up until I found out that he was gone for 11 days, I bought the love child thing. I thought okay, if he’s gone for three or four days, but the love child thing I have a hard time from the guy who I hunt bears and sharks in my underpants without a shirt with my bare hands. I just don’t see him fazed by his love for children for 10 or 11 days.

So, Russia continues to destabilize the region and itself. Here’s the problem, if men like Dugin and Girkin are publicly supporting a hostile military takeover, which they are, we are in for a very dark times. One of the possible candidates is Sergey Shoygu. He is the most hardline of the hardliner Fascists, and he possesses all three prerequisites needed to pull off a successful coup. He has access to lots of money. He controls the Russian state media, you know, the one that just released an old tape of Putin taking a hard line. He is also the head of the military.

If he takes over, it would make Putin look like Mother Teresa. Any Russian restraint would be snuffed out. Russia’s march to reclaim the third Roman Empire would be on big time. This is very scary stuff, especially if you understand what the caliphate is after. We can only cross our fingers and hope that it was the love child, which indeed it might have been, but let me give you the update now on ISIS.

I saw another story that made my blood run cold. A few weeks ago, I said on the air that France was in real danger. Watch.

VIDEO

Glenn: Because of what is happening, I believe London, France, Germany, Greece, I believe these things could be destroyed in what is coming and especially because remember who you’re fighting against. You’re fighting against Islamic extremists. The places that they will target will be places like the Cathedral of Notre Dame. You could go back to France in 15 years from now, and it might be free. It might not be. It might be free, but the Cathedral of Notre Dame may be gone.

So, this weekend when I saw this headline on TheBlaze, I froze: “ISIS Vows to Bomb White House, Big Ben, and the Eiffel Tower.” I thought for a while now that it was France, especially with the massive illegal immigration problem that it would take the center stage. I will tell you that I have an interview coming out with Tim Ferriss on his podcast that I did a week ago. I think it comes out in three or four weeks, and he asked me, “What do you see for Europe?” I told him in that interview maybe a week, two weeks ago, that it’s going to be France, and it’s going to be the Cathedral of Notre Dame.

He looked at me, and I felt a little awkward because it was strangely specific and out of the blue, but now that I see ISIS is all but declaring Paris their number-one target, I believe this is important for you to understand.

On a side note, the young kid who executed the so-called spy that ISIS caught, he’s from France, they believe. The kid couldn’t have been more than 11 or 12 years old. That’s how scary this is getting. I know people have mocked ISIS on Twitter for saying that they were going to conquer Rome, but I don’t believe they look at Rome the way you look at Rome. Maybe they do. Again, they are coming through Italy as well.

Can they do it? I don’t know. Will they try? Well, bin Laden in 1999 said that he was going to bomb the skyscrapers of New York. I would suggest that we take these people at their word. You have to think like a 13th century person and the Crusades to understand their words. Remember, ISIS keeps talking about fighting the armies of Rome. Back in the Crusades days, the caliphate was dominating, and it was France that pushed the Moors out of Spain and put a stop to it.

So, what does that have to do with the armies of Rome? Here’s where it gets interesting. Pope Clement V in the 13th century relocated the seat of the Catholic Church to Avignon, France. Most people don’t remember. Believe me, the Muslims do. It was Pope Clement who gave the order to send the Crusades out to the Levant, as in the L in ISIL.

So, to them they would be fighting the armies of Rome when they target France. Their symbolic target I don’t believe will be the Eiffel Tower. I think they will go for something sacred like the Cathedral at Notre Dame or maybe something in Avignon. I don’t know. They’ll hit what they can. After all, ISIS wants to conquer a small town in Dabiq just because they believe it will initiate the literal countdown to the apocalypse. These people are looking for religious symbolism.

The globe continues its march toward war. The media continues to fail to give us perspective, so we will stay on this.

Soros is trying to elect MORE TEXAS RINOs. Here's how YOU can stop him.

Texas is under threat of a George Soros-backed takeover.

Soros-funded RINO judges have been elected in some of the highest courts in Texas. These judges implemented restrictions that have blocked nearly a thousand cases of voter fraud from being investigated or prosecuted from across the state. These new restrictions are similar to ones in place in states like George, Arizona, and Wisconsin, leaving Texas more susceptible to election corruption than ever. If Texas falls to corruption, America will lose its largest bastion of conservative electoral power in the nation. Without Texas, Republicans WILL NOT be able to win national elections and liberal corruption will go unchecked across the country.

Fortunately, there is a way to stop this: YOU.

If you live in Texas you have a chance to stand up against corruption and to fight back! Starting Tuesday, February 20th, early voting for the primaries begins, where three of these judges are up for election. Go out and vote. If the right people are voted in, there's a good chance the restrictions will be lifted and election fraud can once again be prosecuted.

But remember, you can't just go in and vote for anyone who has an "R" next to their name. Sorors knows that a registered Democrat would never stand a chance in Texas, so his lackeys register as Republicans and ride the little "R" right into office. So who do you vote for?

Fortunately, Glenn had Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on his show today and Ken gave us his list of judges that he vouches for. His list is as follows:

  • Gina Parker
  • Lee Finley
  • David Schenck
The Primary Election runs from February 20th to March 5th. This is your chance to get out there and make a difference. It might be the most important election you ever participate in. If you need to know where your nearest polling location is, or any other information regarding the election, you can go to votetexas.gov to find out more.
It's time to stand up.

Hypocrisy EXPOSED: The 'Amazon Files' and what WE are doing about it

Who is really banning books?

For years now, Conservatives have been taking flak from the left for supposed "book bans." The left likes to compare these "bans" to Nazi book burnings, accusing the right of sweeping authoritarian decrees designed to suppress information. In reality, this is a movement largely motivated by parents, who want to remove inappropriate books from children's libraries.

But if you want to discuss authoritarian book bans, look no further than the White House. As Glenn recently covered, the Biden administration has been pressuring the world's largest bookseller, Amazon, into suppressing books they disagree with.

On February 5th, 2024, Ohio Representative Jim Jordan released a slew of subpoenaed documents that exposed pressure placed on Amazon by the Biden Administration. The documents, which Jordan dubbed "The Amazon Files" after Elon Musk's "The Twitter Files," revealed an email conversation between Andrew Slavitt, a former White House senior adviser, and Amazon employees. In these emails, Slavitt complained that the top search results for books on "vaccines" were "concerning" and then requested that Amazon intervene. Amazon initially refused, not out of some altruistic concern for the free exchange of information. They thought any action taken would be "too visible" and would further exasperate the “Harry/Sally narrative,” referring to the outrage that followed Amazon's removal of Ryan T. Anderson’s book When Harry Became Sally.

Despite this initial refusal, Amazon agreed to meet with the White House a few days later. The number one item on their agenda was removing books from the website. An Amazon employee even admitted that the reason they even took this meeting was due to the pressure being placed on them by the Biden Administration.

What was the result of this meeting? Amazon caved. They began to implement ways of limiting the outreach of books that challenged the mainstream vaccine narrative and other books the White House might not like.

The White House was caught red-handed pressuring the world's largest bookseller to restrict the sale of books they consider in opposition to their narrative, and they have the gall to accuse conservatives of information suppression. This is just ONE of many actions committed by the Biden Administration that are more characteristic of a dictator than a president.

What can you do about it? Fortunately, you are not dependent on Amazon and its corrupted algorithm to help you find books. Every week right here on GlennBeck.com, we highlight books that Glenn is reading or talking about in our "Glenn's Bookshelf" series.

10 times Biden has acted like a DICTATOR

The left-wing media's most recent tirade is accusing Trump of being a dictator. But, as Glenn said, "Everything they're accusing us of, they're doing."

Since day one, the Biden administration has overstepped the bounds placed on the executive branch set by the Constitution. In Glenn's most recent TV Special, he examined ten times Biden acted like a dictator, NOT a president. Here are 10 of Biden's Dictator Moves, and click HERE to get ALL of the research that went into this week's Glenn TV special:

5 ways to protect your First Amendment rights. Number 4 will surprise you.

Buyenlarge / Contributor | Getty Images

Every day it seems Glenn covers another story revealing how people across the world at all levels of power DESPISE the fact that YOU have rights, and they are actively trying to curtail them. Recently, there has been a string of attacks against the rights outlined in the First Amendment: the freedom of religion, the freedom of speech, the freedom of press, the freedom of assembly, and the freedom to petition.

As a refresher, the First Amendment reads as follows:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

This is powerful stuff, there is a good reason the Founding Fathers made it the FIRST Amendment. It's also the reason why power-hungry elites are attacking it. These attacks are designed to control the way you think, speak, and believe, vote, what you read, and who holds your representatives responsible. The First Amendment is our strongest weapon against tyrants, and they know it.

So what can you do about it? Hope that some wig in Washinton will eventually do something? We know how well that works. The best thing to do is to stay active, engage in the issues you care about, and exercise your rights.

So where to start? Here are a few things YOU can do to protect your First Amendment rights:

Religion

The best way to flex your Freedom of Religion is to—you guessed it—practice your faith. Become an active member in your place of worship, go to scripture studies, invite your friends to that late afternoon event, and walk the life. This can impact the way you spend money as well. Shop the businesses and brands that share your values, and don't shop at the ones that scorn them. Keeping the community alive and healthy is the best way to ensure that generations to come will be able to experience the freedom you enjoy.

Speech

Much like religion, the best way to protect your freedom of speech is... to speak. Engage your friends and family in polite, civil conversation. Stand up for what you believe in, and make your case to your peers. Just remember to keep it friendly. No one ever won an argument by shouting down their opponent. The civil exchange of ideas is the cornerstone of our republic, and a dialogue where the participants are well-informed, considerate, compassionate, and open-minded can have permanent impacts on all involved.

Press

Freedom of the Press seems a little tricky at first. Unless you work for the media, what are you supposed to do? Quit your job and go work for the local newspaper? The good news is that exercising this right is not nearly that difficult. In fact, you are currently doing it. The best thing you can do is to read from outlets that produce informative content.

Assembly

Freedom of assembly is one of the more impactful yet underutilized freedoms in the First Amendment. Peaceably assembling and protesting with like-minded individuals can hugely influence politicians and policies while simultaneously creating community and fellowship between attendees. It's understandable why more people don't turn out. We're all busy people with busy schedules, and flying out to D.C. for the weekend seems like a daunting task to many. Thankfully, you don't have to go out all the way to D.C. to make a difference. Gather some like-minded people in your town and bring awareness to issues that impact your community. Big change starts locally, and exercising your freedom to assemble can be the catalyst to lasting impact.

Petition

If you've been a long-time listener of Glenn, then you will have heard a few of his calls to action where he asks his audience to contact their representatives about a particular piece of policy. There is a good reason Glenn keeps on doing those: they work. Whether it's your local mayor or your senator, a call and an email go a long way. If you really want to make a change, convince your friends and family to reach out as well.
