Did Russia Commit an Act of War?

Is there any doubt what would have happened if Russians hacked into the RNC on Ronald Reagan's watch? It would have been an act of war.

"It would be 20,000 times worse than Watergate. They are trying to influence our election, and no one is asking why." Glenn said.

As usual, the mainstream media focused on the wrong reasons and people.

"They'll go to stupid and silly motivations like, 'Well, they're a fan of Donald Trump because he has investments.' There's no evidence of that. There's no proof of that. Or they'll say, 'Well, because Vladimir Putin doesn't like Hillary Clinton because she embarrassed him on the world stage.' True. But Putin is too smart for that. This is too big of a move just to embarrass somebody," Glenn said.

Glenn laid out the case Wednesday on his TV program and Thursday on radio behind the WikiLeaks release of 20,000 emails on the eve of the Democratic National Convention (DNC) --- and who's behind it.

First things first, it's been confirmed that Russia was behind the hack and, in effect, broke into DNC headquarters. Three separate security firms --- SecureWorks, CrowdStrike and Fidelis Cybersecurity --- have confirmed the Russian military and the new KGB, known as the FSB, were behind the cyber attacks, specifically two cyber units nicknamed Fancy Bear and Cozy Bear.

How did WikiLeaks become involved? How did the company come into possession of the emails? For now, both the Russian government and WikiLeaks have denied the emails were transferred between the two entities.

"If WikiLeaks isn't an apparatus bought and paid for by the Russian intelligence services, it is clearly a preferred partner," Glenn said.

In 2006, Julian Assange founded WikiLeaks in Australia. Previously, he hosted an interview show called the World Tomorrow, which aired on a network called RT. RT used to stand for Russia Today. According to RT's website, it is an international English language network that provides an alternate perspective on major global events and acquaints international audiences with a Russian viewpoint.

"This network is owned by the federal government of Russia. Which means, it is run by Vladimir Putin, a former KGB, FSB agent. It is pure propaganda, which goes against everything that WikiLeaks says they are. Their slogan is, 'We open governments.' Well, you're presenting your view on a government propaganda machine," Glenn said.

Another ominous link between WikiLeaks and the Russian government involves former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.

In 2013, Assange reached out to Snowden, brokering the deal to get him to Russia. Snowden took sanctuary in Russia, under the watchful eye of the Russian government. At his own request, Assange now enjoys the protection of the FSB while hiding out in London.

The rabbit hole deepens with Donald Trump's campaign team.

Key members of Trump's campaign managerial team --- Carter Page, Richard Burt, and Paul Manafort --- questionably ties to Russian interests and, arguably, the Russian government. While Trump only appears to be a puppet of Putin's interference in a U.S. presidential campaign, his role helps reveal the true endgame of this latest game of Russian roulette.

"People don't want to hear this, but Russia is playing us. And Russia doesn't give a flying crap about Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. They are aiming for chaos and revolution in our streets, and that's why they attacked Hillary Clinton.

The mastermind behind Russia's chaotic goal in the West is Aleksandr Dugin, a key advisor to Putin.

"I want you to understand that Dugin is a very important guy. He believes, in his own words, Hitler didn't go far enough and that we have to cause chaos all over the world to break the system so a greater Hitler can come and play a role, and we will cobble fascists together all over the world. He is the guy in 1999 that said in the international press, 'In the next decade, America will break apart into five parts. It's going to head into revolution. And I know this because we have people in place'" Glenn said.

Putin's ultimate goal is to rebuild the Russian empire following the advice of Aleksandr Dugin, a very dangerous man.

"We'll have more on this next week. This is more important than anything we ever did with George Soros. This is very important," Glenn said.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."
