Rubio's prediction for Syria and Russia just came true

Glenn played audio of "absolutely a home run" of a prediction Senator Marco Rubio made about Russia in the last debate.

"This is exactly what happened and is happening now in the Middle East with Russia," Glenn said.

Listen to the audio and get Glenn's reaction below.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors.

GLENN: I want to play something that Rubio said. Made a prediction about the -- in the debate, the last debate about Russia, that is absolutely a home run. This is exactly what happened and is happening now in the Middle East with Russia. Listen to this.

MARCO: Here's what you're going to see in the next few weeks. The Russians will begin to fly combat missions in that region, not just targeting ISIS, but in order to prop up Assad. He will also then turn to other countries in the region and say, "America is no longer a reliable ally, Egypt. America is no longer a reliable ally, Saudi Arabia. Begin to rely on us."

What he is doing is he is trying to replace us as the single most important powerbroker in the Middle East, and this president is allowing it. That is what's happening in the Middle East. That's what's happening with Russia.

VOICE: Thank you, Senator Rubio.

GLENN: Thank you, Senator Rubio. Everybody forget what he just said.


PAT: That's what it sounds like.

GLENN: That's as good as what Romney said about Russia.

PAT: Yeah. And he was told that the '80s were calling and they wanted their policy back.

GLENN: Yeah, and he was exactly right then. Now here is Rubio saying the same thing. I don't know. Does Rubio have the same advisers that Romney had on foreign policy? Possible.

STU: Yeah, there's some -- there are some people who say there's some closer ties there.

PAT: Uh-huh.

STU: There's supposedly a big fight going on now that's brewing between Rubio and Bush. That's the new --

PAT: And they were good friends.

STU: They were. They were good friends at one point. But now apparently that's gone now to the rivalry station.

GLENN: Why? What's happened?

STU: I mean, they're competing against each other. But I think now they're starting to outwardly criticize one other, which was not something they were doing earlier.

PAT: Yeah, but you're destined to do that.

GLENN: You're running against him. It doesn't mean you hate him.

STU: Right. I guess there's certain --

PAT: Hard feelings now.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: I think there's hard feelings on the part of Jeb because Rubio once said he wouldn't run against him -- or he alluded to that, that he wasn't going to run against him because they were friends and whatever and now he's in it. And so, you know, there might be some hard feelings there. But I'm sorry, Jeb, you suck. And so you need to be run against.

GLENN: No, I don't like this whole -- I don't like this whole friendship thing on --

PAT: Yeah, the phony friendship.

GLENN: Yeah, the phony friendship. Look, you guys can be friends. But that doesn't mean I have to support you and I have to not say that you're wrong on things. You know, I don't -- I shouldn't -- I shouldn't be -- I shouldn't need friendship to stop me from being unfair to you. You know what I mean?

STU: Right.

GLENN: So I don't have to be your friend to not be unfair.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: I should never be unfair. But I'm going to say, "Look, he's my friend and I like him, but he's wrong on this, sorry."

STU: Yeah, and I know it's against standard groupthink, but sadly we don't live in a country where I can prevent people from being friends. Sadly. But I will be honest, I'd prefer if they weren't. Because when you have friends, you do things for them to help them that aren't necessarily the best thing for the country. And that's what keeps happening with policy after policy. These guys are like, "I'll bend a little bit to you because we went out and had drinks last night." It's the exact thing Rand Paul was praising and beating up Ted Cruz about. That's what I like about Ted Cruz. I don't want those things to go on.

PAT: You brought up Orrin Hatch on your Facebook page, Glenn. And that's such a great example of this because of his friendship with Ted Kennedy which I think ruined Orrin Hatch in the Senate. He campaigned as a guy who was going to stop the policies of people like -- and named him by name -- Ted Kennedy. Then all of a sudden they're doing backyard barbecues together.

GLENN: Literally.

PAT: And they're head over heels in love for years. I mean, I don't mind if you're friends, but how can you be when the guy is the polar opposite of everything you believe supposedly?

STU: I don't mind you being acquaintances. Friends -- if you're close friends, it winds up -- it causes issues with these guys. They can't handle it. Obviously.

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests? 

Would you feel safe if your child attended a University that allowed pro-Hamas protests?

 Should Universities allow pro-Israel protests?

Is pro-Hamas rhetoric protected by the First Amendment?

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
