Assad, Putin, Khamenei and Un: The Four Horsemen of the Impending Nuclear Apocalypse

President Trump hasn't even made it through his first 100 days and he's already staring down the barrel of an impending nuclear apocalypse. The world is a tinderbox from the Middle East to Asia and there are several lunatics playing with matches.

Throughout history, tyrants and dictators rise up and oppression and domination swell to a breaking point and freedom and righteousness must step up to the plate --- or else face enslavement. The biblical Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse represent death, famine, pestilence and war but all four are present in four key nations to the peace and security of our way of life.

Here is a look at four tyrants who are threatening to destabilize the entire world and life as we know it.

Syria: Bashar al-Assad

Four years ago, President Obama said his red line for taking action in Syria was the regime's use of chemical weapons. It was a line that was continually crossed with no action taken to stop it. Eventually, a deal was reached for Assad to dispose of his arsenal --- a deal John Kerry claimed as a success.

Fast forward to last week, Assad used what has been confirmed as Sarin gas to attack a rebel village and President Trump responded swiftly with a barrage of Tomahawk missiles to one of their airbases. The Syrians alliance with Russia, Iran and North Korea spells trouble for the rest of the world.

Russia: Vladamir Putin

Russia has risen from the ashes of the cold war to be quite the agent of chaos. Thanks in large part to the counsel from Aleksandr Dugin, Vladamir Putin has found a way to put Russia right in the middle of all of the most important events of today.

If they aren't rumored to have conspired to get Donald Trump elected they are accused of hacking our most vital institutions and now are war criminals. According to the accusations of Rex Tillerson, not only did Russia know about the Syrian gas attack in advance, they also provided aid in attempting to cover up the attack afterward.

Mix in a little aid to North Korea and Iran and you've got the makings of a nuclear event that would bring the world to its knees. It looks like the axis of evil is shifting and accepting new players.

Iran: Ayatollah Khamenei

Putin and Assad are dangerous because of their lust for power. Un is dangerous because he's straight up nuts. But Iran is the most dangerous of all for a totally different reason --- they really believe in the end of the world type of stuff. They want to cause chaos and destruction to bring back the Mahdi.

Iran has been linked to terrorism for decades and their pursuit of nuclear technology goes beyond their claims of 'peaceful purposes.' Continuing to ignore this fact will only lead to a more dangerous world and jeopardize the safety of people around the world.

North Korea: Kim Jong-Un

The other three tyrants mentioned are either ideologically driven or evil and power hungry and want to rule the world. But Kim Jong-Un is straight up certifiably insane. He is the wild card that could set the world ablaze and scar the face of the earth for generations to come.

China recently deployed 150,000 troops to the North Korean border to handle the influx of refugees in the aftermath of an attack from the United States. That really makes you wonder if they know something the American people don't know.

Glenn's Perspective

"Do you remember when George Bush used to say, freedom is on the march?" Glenn asked Tuesday on radio.

"No, it is not.  Freedom is in retreat.  Darkness, tyranny, and oppression are on the march. The return all over the world of men like Stalin, Mao, Mussolini, are just as active as they were a century ago."

If war does come, what we will see from North Korea will be on a whole other level.

"If war restarts with North Korea, this is warfare on a completely different scale. Violence is possible here, the kind of violence that we haven't seen since World War II. Analysts predict the capital of South Korea will be completely leveled after North Korea's counterattack," Glenn said.

"If North Korea ever falls, we're likely to see atrocities that we haven't seen since the Allied troops freed the troops in World War II."

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.

The Associated Press has issued a dire warning for abortion providers ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade.

According to an article titled "'Heightened alert’: Abortion providers brace for ruling," abortion clinics nationwide are expecting an increase in "protests, harassment, and other violence ... in states where abortion remains legal" if Roe v. Wade is overturned — as a draft opinion leaked in May suggested is likely to happen.

"On the night of last winter’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could end the nationwide right to abortion, people gathered outside a clinic in New Jersey with lawn chairs, a cooler and a flaming torch — a sight that brought to mind lynchings and other horrors of the country’s racist past," the AP article began.

The article did go on to cite two incidents of extreme anti-abortion violence — "the 1993 killing of Dr. David Gunn outside a Florida abortion clinic [and] the 2015 fatal shooting of three people inside a Colorado Planned Parenthood." But there was almost no mention of the ongoing attacks on pregnancy crisis centers by pro-choice activists, including the violent group that calls itself "Jane’s Revenge."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck noted that the closest the current administration has come to calling out Jane’s Revenge was when the Department of Homeland Security published a terror advisory warning of crime on both sides of the Roe v. Wade debate earlier this month. But when was the last time you heard about violent attacks on pro-life centers in the corporate media? There have been several instances of violence by pro-choice proponents, and the Biden administration remains silent.

GLENN: Now the righteous generation of the woke has reached such a level of holiness that it cannot possibly be contaminated by name of a less righteous monster like George Washington. Student insists the university must break its ties with white supremacy and systematic racism by canceling its 200 year old name and renaming it. Are you ready? Malcolm X University.

Disney-owned Pixar's latest animated film "Lightyear" was expected to blast off last weekend, but ended up falling way short of box office expectations.

Box office analysts expected the "Toy Story" spin-off to gross $70 million and $85 million domestically and $50-60 million in offshore markets, despite having been barred in at least 14 countries over a controversial same-sex kissing scene, but the film's total haul worldwide wound up at $85.6 million.

Earlier this year, the controversial kissing scene was apparently cut from the film, but the Disney corporation made a show of reinstating it in March amid outrage over Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' (R) Parental Rights in Education bill.

Now, why would such a woke movie flop at the box office on its opening weekend?

"Blame the fact that it doesn’t appeal to girls, blame Disney+ for stealing family moviegoers, blame the lack of an ensemble Toy Story cast, heck, blame everything as Disney/Pixar’s Lightyear didn’t do its magic by internal studio or industry standards this weekend with $51M, close to a third below its lowest $70M pre-release projection," said Deadline.com.

"Variety" lamented that the film's lofty "ambitions were thwarted by heightened competition from Universal’s behemoth 'Jurassic World: Dominion' and Paramount’s high-flying 'Top Gun: Maverick,' as well as little intrigue to watch a slightly esoteric origin story about Buzz Lightyear."

AV Club guessed that maybe "longtime fans have simply grown up and moved on and/or gotten tougher to please."

Both Vanity Fair and Movie Web seemed to think the problem was with the movie's "high concept premise" of making a film based on a film that was supposed to have inspired the Buzz Lightyear toy in "Toy Story."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray weren't afraid to call out the obvious reason Disney's latest film fell flat: Parents are just tired of woke politics in their children's movies. It's really not that hard to figure out, Disney.
