Understanding Russian Alexsandr Dugin and the Inevitability of WW3

Jason Butrill, head researcher for TheBlaze and former member of counterintelligence with U.S. Special Forces, joined The Glenn Beck Program on Monday for a discussion on Aleksandr Dugin, a key advisor to President of the Russian Federation Vladmir Putin.

"Jason was instrumental in forming the theory that we came up with on Benghazi," Glenn said.

Within two days of the attack, Jason helped piece together a theory that the U.S. was running guns through a safe house in Benghazi and shipping them to what would become ISIS in Turkey. That theory turned out to be correct.

"So Jason and I have been very concerned about a guy named Aleksandr Dugin," Glenn said. "He's calling for people who are far worse than Hitler to rise up all around the world." 

Putin and the Russian government have been funding far right fascist radicals all around the world, influencing elections to create chaos that will allow for the reunification of Russia.

"We don't believe Donald Trump is involved in this at all. We don't think that he even knows who Dugin is. I don't think even Hillary Clinton knows who Dugin is. I don't think even some of our own people know who Dugin is. And they should," Glenn said.

Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks who has ties to the Russian government, denied his acquisition of DNC emails resulted from a Russian hack, but a recent speech by Aleksandr Dugin suggests otherwise.

"Tell me what he's just said in a speech that gives you some real firm belief that this is through Dugin, what's coming from WikiLeaks, and how they're trying to influence our election and get Donald Trump elected," Glenn said. "He sounds like one of the mullahs in Iran because he believes chaos has to come and out of chaos will come the strongman. So he's pushing for violence in the streets."  

Butrill read from a keynote speech Dugin has been giving around the world, laying out his theory called the Fourth Political Theory or the Fourth Turning:

As this gathering begins, we must be thinking about the future and the questions that face a revolutionary struggle in the very lair of the Antichrist. We are looking not for easy answers, but hard questions. It is not enough to hopefully expect the apocalypse. It is not enough to convince ourselves that the enemy will just collapse. We must prepare ourselves with a serious study of the eternal tradition of revolution, and we must kindle the burning fire of passion and will that is the very life force of her eternal return. We must prepare her way. We must prepare ourselves as her secret army.

"He finishes off by quoting Julian Assange," Butrill said. He continued:

To radically shift regime behavior, we must think clearly and boldly, for if we have learned anything, it is that regimes do not want to be changed. We must think beyond those who have gone before us and discover technological changes that embolden us with ways to act in ways our forbearers could not.

Dugin allegedly advised Putin years ago of Russia's inability to compete with the technological and economic might of the United States. So they decided to create revolution using "asymmetrical" weapons.

"These asymmetrical weapons --- WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, Snowden --- all of this stuff started happening right before we brought online our anti-ballistic missile shield. This is a specific counter to that," Butrill said.

Republican nominee Donald Trump appeared clueless about Russia during a recent interview with George Stephanopoulos, stating Putin "is not going into the Ukraine" and implying a strong Trump presidency would prevent it.

"He's already there," Glenn said. "The people of Ukraine rose up in revolution and kicked their president out because he was buddy-buddy with Russia."

Trump similarly misunderstood how his recent tough stance on NATO would delight Putin and Dugin.

"What Trump just said about NATO is exactly what Putin wants. He wants a weakening of the European Union. He wants a weakening of NATO. He wants a guy who is stirring things up, causing problems, causing conflict. Dugin is looking for people all over the world that are causing hatred, division and revolution to fester and grow. It is critical that you understand that. Otherwise, you're going to be played," Glenn said.

With the unrest across the world, there's little doubt we're headed for World War III.

"Borders are going to be redrawn, and the evil of the 1930s is returning to the world quickly," Glenn said.

Glenn Beck: This is the ONLY endgame that makes sense for the FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home

If you're celebrating this FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, you have no idea how much this changes things. We don't do this in America. At least, we didn't. But the left cannot have Donald Trump be president again. His "America First" platform goes against everything they've been working for. So, what's their endgame here? On the radio program, Glenn Beck said there's really only one endgame that makes sense — and it should scare us all.

"If you are not for the destruction of America, you better pay attention quickly. This is a massive move," Glenn said of the Mar-a-Lago raid.

"And who has credibility on this? ... The right will believe Donald Trump, but nobody on the left, so you're not going to change any minds there. Do you think the right will believe the New York Times? MSNBC? NBC? CBS? Do you think we're going to believe the New York Times — the people who have been carrying water for the Biden crimes? The Clinton crimes? And ... I'm talking about her server and having her own State Department people go into a skiff, which is the top secret room, completely sealed off, going in and getting documents, cutting off 'top secret,' and then emailing them to her on her private server. And nothing? And now you're going to try to convince me [that] this has nothing to do with January 6?" he added.

"Remember the [allegations about] bank servers, [Trump] was pinging a bank? Untrue. Carter Page is a Russian spy? Untrue. Donald Trump is a Russian spy? ... Untrue. Collusion with Russia? Untrue. Ukraine, the perfect phone call? Not true. Not true. Wasn't a perfect phone call. Was not impeachable. The pee tape dossier? None of that was true. Here's why they can't have [Trump] as president of the United States. They can't have him as president of the United States because we are headed towards a completely new, all redesigned, non-capitalist, nonconstitutional Great Reset," Glenn argued. "They cannot have him be president because he is America first."

Glenn warned Americans that our federal government is accumulating massive power, case in point the 87,000 new IRS agents. "Coupled with the [IRS agents] they already have ... that's almost the size of our National Guard. Do you feel comfortable with that? Democrats? You don't think there's a possibility ... that someone ... might come in at some point and weaponize the IRS?"

He also warned that the FBI's raid on Donald Trump’s home has implications that stretch far beyond simple dislike for the former president. So what are they hoping to accomplish?

"What is the endgame? You make him into a martyr by throwing him into jail or killing him ... so you make him stronger? That doesn't make sense. Why would they want that?" Glenn asked. "So, what is their endgame? The only one that makes sense to me, is to stop him at any cost, then lunatics will take to the streets, and then [they] will have [their] evidence that the [right is] more dangerous than anyone could possibly imagine. Please, pray for your country."

In just the past few days, the Senate passed an unprecedented $740 billion spending bill amid an inflation crisis, we found out that the IRS purchased nearly $700,000 worth of guns and ammo ahead of plans to hire 87,000 new "enforcement" agents, and on Monday the FBI raided the home of a former U.S. president. It's pretty safe to say that there's a whole lot going on in this country that we've never seen before, and conservatives had "better wake up," said Glenn Beck on "The Glenn Beck Program."

"This is the beginning of an entirely new kind of America. And when it is all implemented, look out! The only other thing that I think [Democrats] could do to really polish us off is [use] emergency orders. If [President Joe Biden] goes for emergency orders and declares a national emergency over the weather, we're going to be cooked," Glenn said.

Glenn went on to explain why he believes a new "season" is on the horizon for our nation, but it’s not all bad news. He said he's hopeful for a new class of politicians to enter Washington, D.C., and, while no politician is perfect, a few such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis can still surprise us.

DeSantis always seems to be ahead of the curve on hot-button issues, and he tackles them the legal way without abusing his power. Just look at how much the media is trying to paint him as evil. That’s a telltale sign that "he’s on the right track, at the right speed. And he's taking all of it on," Glenn said.

Here are 3 ways the 'Inflation Reduction Act' WILL impact you (Hint: NOT by reducing inflation)

The Senate has passed President Joe Biden's $740 billion "Inflation Reduction Act" over the weekend, but the only way this deceptively-named bill will reduce inflation is by crushing your buying power. The massive spending bill includes the largest climate spending package ever passed and will allocate a whopping $80 billion to make the IRS bigger than the Pentagon, State Department, FBI, and Border Patrol combined. And just wait until you see how the bill will affect our farmers.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck broke down three rather "terrifying" components of the 755-page bill and how they will impact you.
