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."

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."
