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.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
