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."

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

We were live on the air when news broke of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned its controversial 1973 Roe v. Wadeopinion, concluding that there is no constitutional right to an abortion.

"The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," the syllabus of the decision reads.

As expected, the leftist outrage erupted instantaneously, fueled largely by the misinformed idea that overturning Roe v. Wade means abortion will be banned nationwide. But, as stated in the above-mentioned Supreme Court syllabus, the authority has actually been returned to individual states and their duly elected lawmakers.

One such misinformed leftist, Parkland shooting survivor Cameron Kasky, was infuriated that those awful Supreme Court justices "just voted to kill women." So he took to Twitter to urge people to go to the homes of said Supreme Court justices to "let them know how you feel."

"Go to the home of every Supreme Court justice who just voted to kill women. Let them know how you feel," Kasky tweeted.

The backlash was immediate:

Kasky decided to delete his original tweet because he is apparently "sick of republicans talking to [him]." But, unfortunately for Kasky, the internet is indeed forever:

Speaking from the White House, President Joe Biden dutifully helped spread the misinformation about the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and took the opportunity to prompt voters to elect more Democrats in November so that Congress can write abortion protections into law. Did the president just let slip the real reason Congress hasn't made any effort to start writing such laws in the nearly two months since Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion was "leaked" in early May?

CNN reporter tries to 'ambush' GOP candidate Kari Lake, IMMEDIATELY regrets it

CNN senior national reporter Kyung Lah thought she'd caught Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake off guard when she asked for an impromptu interview outside an event, but ended up sorely regretting her decision.

Lake, a former Fox news anchor, shook hands with Lah as she approached and immediately pointed out that the CNN reporter wasn't wearing a mask any more, a barbed reference to a contentious interview in October 2021, in which Lah smeared the GOP candidate as a “rising star of the right-wing and proud spreader of lies." Lah asked if Lake had “a minute to chat.”

“I’ll do an interview," Lake answered, "as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist? I didn’t think so, because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”

Lake then walked into the event, leaving Lah utterly speechless.

It looks like Lake gained quite a few fans on Twitter:

Kari Lake has been a longtime friend to "The Glenn Beck Program." She joined Glenn last August to tell Glenn why she left the corrupt world of media, what prompted her to enter "the even more corrupt world of politics," and how she plans to make a big difference in her battleground state of Arizona.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."
