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."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"
