'Armageddon': New evidence reveals ISIS looking to provoke a nuclear war between Pakistan and India

Filling in for Glenn on radio Wednesday, Buck Sexton exposed new plans of ISIS to initiate chaos in South Asia with the goal of drawing the U.S. into the conflict, ultimately leading to an apocalyptic ending. According to a recently translated document shared by Sara Carter of the American Media institute, part of this plan involves provoking a nuclear war between Pakistan and India to start a "chain reaction" across the Middle East.

"If ISIS can take control of Pakistan and, for example, its nuclear arsenal, this is sort of the nightmare scenario," Buck said. "You can see how quickly those two countries spin out of control. While the Obama administration is sitting around trying to tell us that they have things well in hand and it's going to be fine. Our enemies are mobilizing and they are executing on a strategy that they tell us about. They've made very clear to us time and again."

With guest Sara Carter on the phone, Buck delved into some of the ramifications if such a plan were to be carried out. Watch a clip of the interview here:

BUCK: Islamic State recruitment document seeks to provoke end of world. This is the piece in USA Today. Let me just give you a little excerpt from it.

An apparent Islamic State recruitment document found in Pakistan’s lawless tribal lands reveals that the extremist group has grand ambitions of building a new terrorist army in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and triggering a war in India to provoke an Armageddon-like “end of the world.” The 32-page Urdu-language document obtained by American Media Institute (AMI) and reviewed by USA TODAY details a plot to attack U.S. soldiers as they withdraw from Afghanistan and target American diplomats and Pakistani officials. AMI obtained the document from a Pakistani citizen.

All right. We have the author of this piece, Sara Carter. She's of the American Media Institute. She's an investigative journalist and a friend of mine. Sara, thank you very much for calling in.

SARA: So glad to be with you here with you Buck. Thank you.

BUCK: Sara, this piece is really astonishing. Tell us how this all came together.

SARA: You know, I've been traveling in and out of the region since 2008, and I've been able to build up a lot of sourcing. And, as you know, these sources have got to be protected. They have to be protected. Their security and safety is of the utmost concern. So I can't go into the details of how this document was given to me, but all I can say is that the document is relatively new. It is written in Urdu, which is significant because according to US intelligence as well as European intelligence and other officials who have had the opportunity to review the document, it signals that the Islamic State is making inroads inside South Asia and able to garner high-level and educated officials on their team. So that's why this document is so significant. Also, it lays out their battle plan for the region. And it's something that lawmakers should be paying very close attention to.

BUCK: Yeah, there's been the expansion, relatively recent expansion, Sara, of al-Qaeda into South Asia. That they now have a branch that is al-Qaeda in South Asia. They're trying to accomplish that. There's also the ISIS affiliated expansion in the Afghanistan Pakistan corridor. When you read through this document though, it seems like they've really thought out the next steps here. Explain to us a little bit of the strategy. They'll attack US troops as they're drawing down on Afghanistan. They'll hope to create instability and chaos there. I would assume assert some level of control and then push into Pakistan. And from there, attack into India. Walk us through the sort of blueprint from the document about what the strategy is.

SARA: Well, it appears that their strategy and part of their recruitment is going after those within the Taliban that are now willing to break ranks with the Taliban and join their side. In the document, it says and it warns, that preparation for Ghazi Ihan (sp) are in full swing and soon the Ummah will hear the tidings of victory on that front as well.

What they're talking about here and Mustafa Samdani is the Urdu translator that helped me translate this 32-page very detailed document. They're referring to an attack in prophecy. Now, it's prophesied there will be a great war or an attack-- some kind of movement in South Asia-- before the final battle, which is where this Armageddon-like battle, will occur. So in order for the leader of the Islamic State, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, to move forward with this great battle against the West, he first has to create or start some type of battle within the South Asia region, particularly in India. That attack in India will instigate, and, as you know, both nations, India and Pakistan, both Indian nations, the instability there will be untold. It really will force the West to choose sides. And it will really spread us thin. We're already spread thin. We still have troops in Afghanistan on the ground training. We have Islamic State on the rise in Syria and Iraq throughout North Africa. So this is highly significant that this battle plan was -- was discovered early on. And I think this is the reason why this leaked. This information leaked to me.

I also have some breaking news for you. I'm waiting right now to find out mullah Omar. (?) that he may have been killed. He's leader of the Afghan Taliban. Right now, a source of mine is awaiting -- I'm awaiting comment from the Taliban. But they are saying, now, this is according to sources I have in the region that mullah Omar was suffering from hypertension and (?) diabetes, and he had suffered severe kidney problems for the last four years. This has not been reported yet. It's not out in the media. As far as whether he's alive or dead, I'm still waiting for the statement from the Taliban spokesmen on that.

So they're -- what they're saying right now is that he has been suffering from hypertension and diabetes for the last four years. And this led to kidney problems. So we still don't know yet whether or not mullah Omar is alive or dead. Obviously, we do know is that he's been very ill over the last four years. I think that's significant. Because it shows there's been a breakdown in the Afghan Taliban. We've seen a breakdown with the TPP. (?) so we have a wide faction looking for leadership and ISIS -- Islamic State is certainly filling that void. This is a cause for concern among US intelligence. Officials. As well as others who are operating in this region.

BUCK: I have to say, based on all the false reports we tend to see or reports that turn out to be premature, inaccurate or however you want to describe it about other senior leaders, Sara, the smart money is always on, no, he's still alive. We'll see if that's the case with mullah Omar. How many times was Osama bin Laden. Dead. Well, czar herey is still alive. We'll have to see on that. (?) the information is health. It's not out in the media. That's also of high interest. Because if -- he's been a figure that's sort of uniting the Taliban for a long time to his banner. When someone like that goes away, there's a high likelihood of factional infighting. As we know there are these other jihadist entities that are trying to pull (?) that would be interesting I think from the perspective of ISIS recruitment at a minimum.

I also want to pull back to the strategy and the strategy outlined in the document. It seems to line up with some of the Hadiths, Sara, that are well-known about the area of Khorasan and that the black flags will come from the east led by mighty men with long hair and beards, their their surnames are taken from their hometowns. Their first name is Acunia. If you see coming from Khorasan, go to them immediately, even if you must crawl over ice, because among them is the Calif, Al-Mahdi. This is all ends of time theology. Interesting to me, this ties into what's already known about jihadist lore and legacy. But also, the idea that they're going after South Asia specifically shows they have an understanding of where the real seams are. Jihadists hate polytheists, which is how they refer to Hindus. Even though it has a massive Muslim population, as a Hindu majority state, it would be something that the world would be completely unprepared for if they were able to start this war in Pakistan. Which has already been something that the jihadist groups have discussed in the past and thought about. It seems like this is going to focus energies of the Islamic State on exactly that, igniting wars between India and Pakistan.

SARA: Absolutely. You hit it right on the nose, Buck. I mean, this is -- this is a strategy that is so incredible because while everybody is focused on Iraq and Syria, while all of our focus has shifted towards that region of the world, they are planning, al-Baghdadi is planning an attack in India. And imagine what this would do to all of the plans. To everything that the US and other European officials and intelligence officials and governments have been trying to do to quell the growth of the Islamic State. It would solidify. It would solidify their presence in South Asia and recruitment would go up extraordinarily, according to the sources that I've spoken to. I mean, this is -- what Bruce Rydell (SP) calls in my story, (?) the holy grail for south -- you know, for south Asia and jihadists in the region. If the Islamic State is able to conduct such an attack, such a massive attack that it would throw South Asia into war, it would really tumble across the entire planet. So, yes, it certainly affects our national security. The document -- and you've brought up some very, very good points here. The Hadith that deal with the end times. The prophecies in the Koran about the end times. This is what al-Baghdadi is centered on. This is his expertise. The document explicitly states that. That was not in my story. But it is in the document. I will be writing about that in the upcoming days. But this is where al-Baghdadi focuses all his attention. And, in fact, in one area of the document, it talks about how he's an expert at inciting violence. He understands that this type of violence, these gruesome, gruesome, brutal atrocities that are being committed all serve a purpose. And they all serve a purpose in the end. Not only to strike fear into our hearts and the hearts of the people that they are ruling over, but it's to lead towards this apocalyptic ending. This shift in world power. It's a little different than Christianity. Because if you think of Christianity, we think about an Armageddon. Christians believe that an Armageddon will come to this end of the world where Jesus will return. While in the mind of Baghdad, according to the document and according to those I spoke to, it's not that same kind of end times. What he wants to see is the caliphate rule the world. And that the West will be submissive. (?)

BUCK: The end of the world as we know it. Not the end of the temporal human world. It's the end of the world where the Islamic State or the caliphate isn't in control of every last bit of territory.

SARA: Absolutely.

BUCK: Sara, also the possibility of the sectarian in the Indian skub continent. (?) India and Pakistan are separated because of sectarianism. Pakistan was founded as a Muslim nationalistic experiment. (?) if they can exploit the fissures in Syria, we'll see what we see in Iraq, but on a much larger scale with a billion people on the subcontinent and nuclear weapons pointed at each other. (?) it's a terrifying strategy. From their perspective, it's very devious. It's something we should pay attention to.

Sara, your piece is great. It's in USA Today. Sara Carter. Islamic State Recruitment Document Seeks to Provoke End of the World. Sara Carter, the American Media Institute, thank you very much for joining.

SARA: Hey, thank you, Buck, for having me on. And if you want to keep up with my stories, @SaraCarterDC, you can follow me on Twitter.

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

David McNew / Staff | Getty Images

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.

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.

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.
