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.

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld joined Glenn on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to talk about his new book, "The Plus: Self-Help for People Who Hate Self-Help."

Greg admits he is probably the last person who should write a self-help book. Nevertheless, he offers his offbeat advice on how to save America during what has become one of the most tumultuous times in history, as well as drinking while tweeting (spoiler: don't do it).

He also shares his "evolution" on President Donald Trump, his prediction for the election, and what it means to be an agnostic-atheist.

In this clip, Greg shares what he calls his "first great epiphany" on how dangerous cancel culture has become.

"I believe that cancel culture is the first successful work-around of the First Amendment," he said. "Because freedom of speech doesn't protect me from my career being ruined, my livelihood being destroyed, or me getting so depressed I commit suicide. Cancel culture is the first successful work-around of freedom of speech. It can oppress your speech with the scepter of destruction. We don't have freedom of speech anymore."

Dr. Simone Gold joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to set the record straight about hydroxychloroquine -- what it is, how it works, and the real reason for all the current controversy surrounding a centuries-old medication.

Dr. Gold is a board certified emergency physician. She graduated from Chicago Medical School before attending Stanford University Law School. She completed her residency in emergency medicine at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York, and worked in Washington D.C. for the Surgeon General, as well for the chairman of the Committee on Labor and Human Resources. She works as an emergency physician on the front lines, whether or not there is a pandemic, and her clinical work serves all Americans from urban inner city to suburban and the Native American population. Her legal practice focuses on policy issues relating to law and medicine.

She is also the founder of America's frontline doctors, a group of doctors who have been under attack this week for speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during a news conference held outside the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

On the program, Dr. Gold emphasized that the controversy over hydroxychloroquine is a "complete myth."

"Hydroxychloroquine is an analogue or a derivative of quinine, which is found in tree bark. It's the most noncontroversial of medications that there is," she explained.

"It's been around for centuries and it's been FDA-approved in the modern version, called hydroxychloroquine, for 65 years. In all of that time, [doctors] used it for breast-feeding women, pregnant women, elderly, children, and immune compromised. The typical use is for years or even decades because we give it mostly to RA, rheumatoid arthritis patients and lupus patients who need to be on it, essentially, all of their life. So, we have extensive experience with it ... it's one of the most commonly used medications throughout the world."

Dr. Gold told Glenn she was surprised when the media suddenly "vomited all over hydroxychloroquine", but initially chalked it up to the left's predictable hatred for anything President Donald Trump endorses. However, when the media gave the drug Remdesivir glowing reviews, despite disappointing clinical trial results, she decided to do some research.

"[Remdesivir] certainly wasn't a fabulous drug, but the media coverage was all about how fabulous it was. At that moment, I thought that was really weird. Because it's one thing to hate hydroxychloroquine because the president [endorsed] it. But it's another thing to give a free pass to another medicine that doesn't seem that great. I thought that was really weird, so I started looking into it. And let me tell you, what I discovered was absolutely shocking," she said.

According to the mainstream media's COVID-19 narrative, the president is "ignoring" the crisis.

On tonight's "Glenn TV" special, Glenn Beck exposes the media's last four months of political theater that has helped shape America's confusion and fear over coronavirus. And now, with a new school year looming on the horizon, the ongoing hysteria has enormous ramifications for our children, but the media is working overtime to paint the Trump administration as anti-science Neanderthals who want to send children and teachers off to die by reopening schools.

Glenn fights back with the facts and interviews the medical doctor Big Tech fears the most. Dr. Simone Gold, founder of America's Frontline Doctors, stands up to the media's smear campaign and explains why she could no longer stay silent in her fight against coronavirus fear.

It's high time to leave the partisan politics behind and focus on the facts about face masks and whether or not they really work against COVID-19.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck spoke with Drs. Scott Jensen and George Rutherford about the scientific evidence that proves or disproves the effectiveness of mask wearing to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Then, Dr. Karyln Borysenko joined to break down where the massive political divide over masks came from in the first place.

"I think if we were to talk about this a couple months ago, I might have said, 'Well, there's the science of masks, and there's the emotions of masks.' But, unfortunately, there's something in between," Jensen said. "I would have thought that the science of masks would have to do with the physics of masks, so I did a video a couple months ago where I talked about the pore side of a cotton mask or a surgical mask."

He explained that properly worn masks can help reduce the spread of virus particles, but cautioned against a false-sense of security when wearing a mask because they are far from providing complete protection.

"If you have a triple-ply mask, the pore size will end up being effectively five microns. And five microns, to a COVID-19 virus particle, is 50 times larger. That's approximately the same differential between the two-inch separation between the wires of a chain-link fence, and a gnat," Jensen explained.

"But now what we're seeing is if we have some collision of COVID-19 viral particles with the latticework of any mask ... if you're breathing out or breathing in and the viral particles collide with the actual latticework of a mask, I think intuitively, yes, we can reduce the amount of virus particles that are going back and forth."

Dr. Rutherford said masks are essential tools for fighting COVID-19, as long as you wear them correctly. He laid out the three main reasons he believes we should all be wearing masks.

"So, we're trying to do three things," he said. "First of all, we're trying to protect the people around you, in case you are one of the 60% of people who have asymptomatic infection and don't know it. The second thing we're trying to do is to protect you. The third thing we're trying to do is, if you get infected, you'll get infected at a lower dose, and then you're less likely to develop symptoms. That's the threefer."
