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.

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.

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."
