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.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
