Vladimir Putin goes AWOL, returns with massive military exercise, nuke talk

Where has Vladimir Putin been for the past 11 days? Was he attending the birth of a secret love child? Was he sick? Was there a coup? No one in Russia is talking - but Putin’s now gearing Russia up for war. Most Americans haven’t heard about ‘Operation: Atlantic Resolve’, which has put troops in a line between Russia and Europe. Now Russia is bringing up nuclear weapons and organizing a massive military exercise. What is going on?

Here's some background:

"I have had a serious feeling and prompting that we need to educate you on the armies of Armageddon, which is ISIS/ISIL. That's what they believe they are. The army of Armageddon. And they are targeting the armies of Rome. This ties directly in to Russia," Glenn explained on radio today.

"Putin has stated that he is reestablishing the third Roman Empire. [Russia is] becoming the armies of Rome. They're going into the Crimea, which they have taken, and they're taking that and reestablishing that as the head of the Roman Empire, the spiritual head of Christianity. Putin has said that Christianity is lost and they are the defenders of the faith. This is why they're going after the homosexuals in Russia. This is why they're becoming more fascistic and religious fascistic. They are setting themselves up to be the ones who the world turns who when ISIS...starts to attack," Glenn said.

So what did America just do in Europe?

The United States has joined NATO in Operation: Atlantic Resolve, something many Americans have never heard of.

CNN explains, "The U.S. Army says it will soon be sending armored Stryker vehicles on a 1,100-mile convoy through six European countries to show solidarity to allies in the wake of recent Russian actions in the Ukraine and Crimea that have Eastern Europe on edge."

"Most Americans don't understand that we have done something called Operation Atlantic Resolve. Atlantic Resolve has solidified our treaty with NATO. And we have now dropped all kind of arms and men into the old former Soviet Union, into all those Baltic states, and we have literally drawn a line between Russia and Europe. And we have troops now in align across Europe. And it's Operation: Atlantic Resolve. And basically it is us saying, Russia, you're contained. You are not to go any further," Glenn said.

What was Russia's response and where was Putin over the past 11 days?

Over the weekend, Russia released an interview with Putin saying they were prepared to use nuclear weapons in Ukraine. Glenn believes the interview was a response to Operation: Atlantic Resolve, but Putin himself had been out of the picture for 11 days. So who authorized the release of that video and where was Putin?

"This last week was his perceived response, but he was gone," Glenn said. "So who authorized that? Now, you could say that there's speculation, and this is what I speculated but I didn't realize he was gone for 11 days -- you could say that he was gone because his girlfriend is having a love child. So maybe he was out having a love child. But he's not a sentimental guy. There's no way he went out and disappeared for 11 solid days without any trace of him for a love child."

"In Russia they were speculating there was a coup and this was the worst possible scenario, because they just killed the guy [America] would like. I don't think Putin was behind this. They just killed the guy who was said, 'hey, we can't do this to the Crimea. We shouldn't be going into the Ukraine.' They killed in a guy and sent a very strong message."

"Then two weeks later, Putin disappears. Before he disappears one of the hard-liners says to the press that Putin better watch himself and better straighten up. This is the guy who's saying we need to reform the Soviet Union. We need to push back through. He's a very big fascist. He is in charge of the military. He's a bad guy. And he said he better watch himself or he's going to end up like Nicholas the Czar. Well, we all know what happened to Nicholas. Nicholas and his family was killed. Then a week later, Putin disappeared for 11 days? Then somebody says, hey, let's release this old tape of Putin and couch it in the terms of Operation: Atlantic Resolve, that we'll use nukes."

"Then [Putin] comes back a new man, totally refreshed and saying, we are going in and in fact we're going to do a massive military exercise to show NATO we're not afraid of you. Something happened in those 11 days. I don't know what. But something happened in those 11 days."

What now?

"So I want you to pay attention that Russia is on war footing now," Glenn said. "Everything that we worried about on 'The Root: Red Storm Rising' you can watch it now, just download it or stream it now from TheBlaze.com. But watch that, because we laid some of this stuff out about a month and a half, two months ago. And these were the things we were warning about."

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."
