Things Are Getting Scary With North Korea's Missile Threats

Thae Yong Ho, the most high profile North Korean defector in two decades, recently warned that North Korea's "desperate" dictator is prepared to use nuclear weapons to strike the United States and its allies.

"I believe him. I believe him," Glenn said Wednesday on radio.

Tuesday night, a senior White House official told reporters that “the clock has now run out, and all options are on the table for us.” Additionally, after North Korea launched yet another intermediate-range ballistic missile, the Department of State issued this statement via the Twitter:

"That's really scary," Glenn said.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Did you hear what NBC -- Lester Holt said about North Korea?

STU: Jeffy did. Because Jeffy is the king of the Lester Holt fan club.

PAT: For some reason, Jeffy is obsessed with Lester Holt.

JEFFY: I mean, Lester Holt is one of the finest news --

GLENN: Okay. Did you hear -- he had the North Korean dictator on?

PAT: Kim Jong-un.

GLENN: No, no, not dictator. Defector. Sorry.

PAT: Oh, okay. Yes.

GLENN: Okay. Did you see the defector?

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: What did the defector say?

PAT: He said that Kim Jong-un is serious. He's crazy. And he'll do it. He'll nuke us. He will use his nuclear weapons.

GLENN: I believe him. I believe him.

I talked to a guy who was very high up in the CIA just recently, last week, and he said -- I said, "What do we do?" And he said, "We're, quite frankly, out of options." Now, he just left, I don't know last summer. And he said, "I think we're out of options, Glenn. We all believe."

PAT: They're talking for a strike. The Trump administration --

JEFFY: Yes, they are. Absolutely they are.

PAT: And they should be. When you got somebody threatening us with EMPs and nuclear weapons and saying that he's going to launch against Hawaii, you got to take that seriously and maybe eliminate that threat.

GLENN: So here's what was said on NBC with Lester Holt: He's a desperate dictator, and the world should be ready.

PAT: Yeah. Yeah.

STU: And did you hear the statements from the administration yesterday? First Rex Tillerson's statement on North Korea, after they launched their most recent missile. This is the entire statement: North Korea has launched yet another intermediate-range ballistic missile. The United States has spoken enough about North Korea. We have no further comment.

GLENN: That's really scary.

STU: Yeah. And then this is a senior White House official told reporters Tuesday night in a briefing with reporters, the clock has now run out, all options are on the table.

PAT: Well, yeah, Trump said, if China doesn't take care of these guys and get them under control, we will. We will.

JEFFY: China better.

GLENN: Okay. So here's -- may I give you an ad for Goldline? What does that mean for your dollar?

PAT: Yeah, it's scary.

GLENN: What does that mean to the economy?

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: We may -- and honestly, I sat in that meeting and I said, "What do we do?" This guy looked at me and said, "There's a possibility we do first strike."

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And I said, "Nukes?" He said, "I wouldn't recommend it. I don't think so." He said, "But I don't know." He said, "There is talk now about using tactical nukes on North Korea and shut him down."

PAT: No, you wouldn't -- you wouldn't to have use nuclear weapons to take out his nuclear weapons. Right?

GLENN: To get into the real hardened places you would. Use tactical nukes. They burrow themselves --

PAT: Yeah, they've got conventional weapons to do that now.

STU: Now they have solid fuel too, so it's harder to detect these launches. And we're not even talking about, by the way, Syria, who is in the middle of launching chemical attacks on their own people right now.

GLENN: I know. Which John Kerry said -- remember the tweet? I found it this morning. He tweeted, the last 8 percent of all the Syrian chemical weapons --

PAT: Just -- they were just used on their people. So now they're gone.

GLENN: Yeah, they're all gone. Good job to the UN and the United Nations.

PAT: I got to say, job well done by us.

GLENN: Right. Horrible. Horrible.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
