Obama Gives ISIS Street Cred by Calling Them ISIL—And He Knows It

Why is it that most of us refer to the Islamic State as ISIS while the president and his administration use ISIL? It's no accident. In fact, it's very intentional and meaningful.

"I-S-I-S is Islamic State of Iraq and Syria," Glenn explained. "I-S-I-L goes beyond Iraq and Syria, and it goes into the Levant."

So just what is the Levant? It's a group of regions that includes Israel. While ISIS is controlling great portions of Iraq and Syria, they have not yet conquered Israel, a key part of the Levant. So when Obama uses "ISIL" he is intentionally giving a nod of respect to ISIS, recognizing their place in Islamic prophecy.

"[As] part of their [stated] prophecy, they're going to cobble together an army in Iraq and Syria, and they're going to take over the Levant," Glenn further explained. "Well, they haven't taken over the Levant yet, but our president is recognizing basically their prophecy and saying, 'Yep, that's you. You're the ones. You're the ones that the Prophet Muhammad has been talking about.'"

Glenn also revealed chilling details in recent ISIS propaganda---ISIS Safety and Security Guidelines for Lone Wolf Mujahideen---that specifically instructs radicals how to blend into Western societies and avoid being detected before carrying out a terrorist attack.

"I want to show you the ISIS Terror Manual," Glenn shared. "I found it on Truth Revolt today. The instructions include avoiding mosques, shaving your beard and wearing Christian crosses [so as] not to appear Muslim."

The how-to guide relies heavily on the "importance of surprise when launching an attack to cause maximum impact."

What does the president say every time we have a lone gunman? That it's not part of ISIS. It's not part of jihad. It's not part of Islam. Why? Because they're a lone wolf.

"If this president says this is definitely not happening and you're a fool or conspiracy theorist that needs to be mocked and ridiculed if you believe it is," said Glenn, "take that to the bank that the opposite is true.

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

GLENN: Did anybody have a problem that the president is still calling ISIS ISIL?

STU: I don't. I mean, they committed to it a long time ago. They've been consistent -- the one thing they've been consistent here --

GLENN: Is their trashing of Israel?

STU: Well, okay, that. But also their hatred for individual rights, but other than that.

GLENN: The one thing he is really consistent on is his trampling of the Constitution and his hatred of Israel.

STU: Okay. Certain things, consistency has not been an issue for this president, I will grant you.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: But ISIL, they have been -- from the beginning, they've picked ISIL instead of ISIS and have stood by it the entire time.

GLENN: Well, the reason why you would pick ISIL is because you want to include the Levant. And the Levant includes Israel.

STU: That's the L, in case you don't know. It's been a while since we covered that.

GLENN: Yeah. I-S-I-L is HEP Levant. I-S-I-S is Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. I-S-I-L goes beyond Iraq and Syria, and it goes into the Levant. It also speaks that the Levant is Israel. It also speaks to their prophecy.

And here's the one thing -- I don't care if you believe in their prophecy or not. I don't. In fact -- well, I kind of do. I actually believe their prophecy is from the gates of hell. I do believe that their philosophy because I've studied what they believe the end times to be, and then I know what we believe the end times to be, and the stories match. It is almost as if you took the Book of Revelation and said, "This is going to freak them out. I'm going to make their bad guy, our good guy, and their good guy, our bad guy." It's literally like that.

It is, their good guy comes up out of nowhere, gathers an army, the world begins to bow to him, those who don't bow to him are beheaded and killed and rounded up. And the world is washed in blood. This is their good guy. And he washes the world in blood. And anyone who won't bow and declare that Allah is God and Muhammad is his prophet is beheaded and killed.

Well, that pretty much is the Book of Revelation. It doesn't say it's Allah. But that's the Book of Revelation. Then the Messiah comes. They agree, Jesus comes. They actually agree with that. Jesus does come.

But when Jesus comes, he testifies to the Christian world that they're wrong and that Allah is God and the prophet is Muhammad. And then Jesus grabs the sword and he starts beheading anybody who doesn't agree. That's the way their story ends.

Our story is, okay. There's a guy. He kind of comes out of nowhere. He starts to cobble together an army. He gets all of the world to fall in with him. Anybody who doesn't fall in with him, he starts to kill and behead and crucify. And then Jesus comes. And Jesus says, "You're wrong, and I'm going to bind you up for 1,000 years. But you're wrong." That's the way -- so the same story, except their guy is the good guy, and their guy to them is the good guy. And he's our bad guy.

So that's what they believe. Now, I don't have to believe that Jesus is coming back right now. I don't have to believe that these are the end times. I don't have to believe any of these things. I won't be have to believe that they believe it. Because they're saying it. And part of their prophecy is, they're going to cobble together an army in Iraq and Syria, and they're going to take over the Levant.

Well, they haven't taken over the Levant yet. But our president is recognizing basically their prophecy and saying, "Yep. That's you. You're the ones. You're the ones that the Prophet Muhammad have been talking about. Yep. That's you. Because even though you don't have the Levant yet, you're going to get it. Because that's what the prophecy says."

Their prophecy also says that we all have to gather at a place called Dabiq, and that is where Armageddon happens. And they are going to deliver a massive blow to us in Dabiq. All of the world's nations will gather together, and we will come to this -- what is only just a little small farming town, and we will gather there and they will have a massive battle with us. And as the Prophet Muhammad says, "They will win."

PAT: It's not far from Des Moines, is it?

GLENN: No, you're thinking of HEP Dabuke.

PAT: Oh.

GLENN: Yeah, it's a little different. This one is in the Middle East.

PAT: Okay. All right. So it's a different farming town.

GLENN: Yes. Yes. But a farming town, nonetheless.

PAT: I was confused for a second.

And you talk about adding legitimacy, which he continually does. Because if we say that they're Islamic terrorists, that gives them the legitimacy they seek. You're telling me that calling them ISIL and adding Levant to it doesn't give them the legitimacy they want?

GLENN: And every nation that joins gives them the legitimacy. And by us not wiping them out, they say, "See. The world is afraid of us because they know our prophecy and they know that Allah is on our side and we're going to sweep." So by not wiping them out, by not hitting them really hard, by not breaking the chain of their prophecy, we're fulfilling their prophecy.

And it doesn't matter if it's real or not. That's the way -- you know, he always talks about. That's just a recruiting tool. That's just a recruiting tool. The biggest recruiting tool in the Middle East is, "This is the time the prophet foretold, where we take over the entire world." This is the time -- this is why they call themselves the army HEP of Armageddon. This is the time of Armageddon.

STU: Continued success, essentially, is their greatest recruiting tool.

GLENN: Yes. Yes.

STU: The longer you let them hang out and control this area --

GLENN: The longer you don't go in with with guns a blazing -- and we can do it all from the air. You can do it from the air.

JEFFY: I mean, we have. He told us last night. With our 65 other partners, we've been bombing the bad guy.

GLENN: And the secret number for them is 80. Got to be 80 partners. That's the secret -- so we want to build this coalition, good, they want us to. They want 80 flags coming against them in Dabiq.

And so the more we talk about, "Hey, well, we've got this coalition," the more they're saying, "Of course, you have this coalition. That's what the prophet said you would."

STU: Now, to hear the president tell the story last night though, the problem with us not being able to defeat ISIS is because Congress will not legitimize this effort.

GLENN: Since when?

STU: So he wants to be super tough on ISIL, but Republicans are getting in the way. That's the problem. That was a new wrinkle on this conversation.

GLENN: Unbelievable. Absolutely unbelievable.

STU: His hands are tied. Because he just cares so much about congressional approval over the things he does, he can't possibly -- can't possibly do this!

GLENN: So the other thing he always says is that it's always a lone wolf. Right? Always a lone wolf. There's nothing to worry about. This is just one guy. It's just this one guy.

These guys are just nothing but a bunch of guys in the back of a truck. Back of a truck. No big deal. And that shooter, he has nothing to do with Islam. It's just one guy. He's a lone wolf. How many times have you heard that? This is just a lone wolf.

I want to show you the ISIS Terror Manual. The ISIS Terror Manual. We now have it from sources at Great Britain. I found it on True Revolt today.

The terror manual that is now circulating among the refugees in Europe instructs jihadists on how to blend in with the West and avoid being detected before carrying out a terrorist attack.

The instructions include avoiding mosques, shaving your beard, and wearing Christian crosses not to appear Muslim. The how-to guide -- I'll give you the name here in a second -- relies heavily on the, quote, importance of surprise when launching an attack to cause maximum impact.

It has now been translated into English. It explains how to go to nightclubs because they are full of loud music and drunk people and they are the perfect place to discuss terror plans without being recorded or spied on.

If you can avoid having a beard -- I'm quoting now the terror manual -- if you can avoid having a beard, wearing, is it kwamas? HEP Kwamas? Using -- using HEP Miswhack. I don't even know what that is. Or having a booklet with you, it's better.

It is permissible for you to wear a necklace showing a Christian cross. As you know, Christians or even atheist westerners with Christian background, wear crosses on their necklaces. But don't wear a cross necklace if you have a Muslim name on your passport, as that will look strange.

If you want to use perfume, don't use the oily nonalcoholic perfume that Muslims use. Instead, use generic alcohol perfume as everyone else does. If you're a man, use perfume for men.

If you're wearing a watch, do not wear it on your right hand, as this is a sign that you're religious. If you have an engagement ring or something like that, it's better to wear one in gold or better yet, not wear anything at all. A silver ring tells people that you are religious as Islam forbids the wearing of gold rings for men.

In all, the booklet with burning buildings illustrated on the cover is intended for operatives already in the West, those that know their surroundings and how to behave normally day by day as a European.

What does the president say every time we have a lone gunman? That it's not part of ISIS. It's not part of jihad. It's not part of Islam. Why? Because they're a lone wolf.

If this president says this is definitely not happening and you're a fool or conspiracy theorist that needs to be mocked and ridiculed if you believe it is, take that to the bank that the opposite is true.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
