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.

(laughter)

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.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
