Glenn: This Quote From Trump’s UN Speech Is Chilling – What Does It Mean?

What happened?

President Donald Trump is making his first appearance at the United Nations General Assembly this week. He addressed world leaders this morning and called for the world to confront the Kim regime and the nuclear threat from North Korea.

Some key quotes from Trump:

  • “If the righteous many do not confront the wicked few, then evil will triumph.”
  • “Our government’s first duty is to its people, to our citizens, to serve their needs, to ensure their safety, to preserve their rights, and to defend their values.”
  • “It is time for North Korea to realize that the denuclearization is its only acceptable future. … It is time for all nations to work together to isolate the Kim regime until it ceases its hostile behavior.”

Glenn’s take:

Glenn zeroed in on one crucial quote from Trump’s speech: If the U.S. “is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.”

Glenn praised Trump’s strong rhetoric and his stand for American sovereignty, but he wondered if Trump’s threats toward North Korea meant he was truly prepared to take on the Kim regime.

“That is either a whole lot of bravado or this situation is on the verge of spiraling out of control,” Glenn said.

GLENN: President Trump just got finished with his address to the United Nations. As expected, went strong on North Korea. Quote, if the righteous many don't confront the wicked few, then evil will triumph. End quote.

That is a great line.

But what happens if from Trump's perspective, there is a lack of righteous many willing to step forward. Does that mean America is willing to go it alone? According to his speech today at the United Nations, it kind of sounds like it.

He -- he said a phrase that made my blood run a little chilly. That if the United States is, quote, forced to defend itself and its allies, we will have no choice, but to totally destroy North Korea.

Holy cow. What -- what?

Now, that is either a whole lot of bravado, or this situation is on the verge of spiraling out of control. Yesterday, Defense Secretary Mattis said that kinetic military options that could ensure the safety of Seoul were viable and on the table.

I'm -- I'm curious. Is the survival of the South Korean capital the only thing holding Trump back here?

Because we know that a nuclear-armed North Korea doesn't threaten South Korea.

Kim Jong-un is not going to nuke Seoul with an ICBM. That's the threat that the United States has to deal with.

Perhaps the statement at the end of his speech was a hint to South Korea. He said, quote, in foreign affairs, we are renewing this founding principle of sovereignty.

This is such a great line. As president, I will always put America first, just like you as leaders of your countries will always do. And you should always put your country first.

All responsible leaders have an obligation to serve their own citizens. Our government's first duty is to its people, end quote.

I'm not sure if we're nearing the endgame in this standoff. I'm not sure. But I do know it's not making me more comfortable every day that goes by.

Ultimately, it may come down to an outcome we have not seen since World War II. And if it does, the world changes dramatically overnight. Let us all pray that cooler heads will prevail.

IBM's Role in Killing Jews & Lessons for Big Tech | Edwin Black | Ep 97

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril.

He also discusses Disney actress Gina Carano, fired for comparing conservative persecution to the Nazi treatment of the Jews. Our culture is being erased. Our ideals and values are being censored and mocked. Our history is being erased. With another human extermination on the horizon in China, Edwin challenges this with bravery.

The New Red Scare & Our 'Reality Czars'

The American Red Scare of the 1950s may be one of the most important — and most terrifying — events in our nation's history. It was a witch hunt — an all-out assault — on any American citizen deemed to be a threat simply because of their thoughts.
Led by Senator McCarthy, the House of Un-American Activities Committee destroyed lives. Mere accusations sometimes meant you were stripped of your job and your dignity. Sound familiar?

On Glenn TV tonight, Glenn Beck outlines how we've gone from pursuing alleged communists to pursuing "right-wing extremists." But how are our new "reality czars" defining that? Is it Trump supporters, red-state Republicans, conspiracy-theorist "nut jobs"? Our new Red Scare is here, America. Are you on the list? Later, Donald Trump Jr. joins Glenn to call out this modern McCarthyism and explains the real reason for President Trump's second impeachment trial.

Only BlazeTV subscribers can watch the full, unedited interview with Donald Trump Jr., free from "reality czars."

Jewish Space Lasers & Deplatforming 'MAGA Media' | Ben Shapiro | Ep 96

Behold Ben Shapiro, the Great Wrecker of Libs himself. From the growing contempt for free speech to the fatal excesses of cancel culture and the forcefulness of so-called racial equity, Ben smashes claims that conservatives don't battle censorship. All of it is fueled by the Left's need for constant revolution and their habitual gaslighting. Seriously, the gaslighting is nonstop: At this very moment, makeshift fencing (aka a wall) surrounds the Capitol. Democrats used to hate walls and borders, but thousands of National Guardsmen occupy Washington, D.C., for unclear reasons, for an indefinite amount of time, and the Democrats are happy about it?

Ben also addresses some of the more "creative" conspiracy theories of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, like Jewish space lasers. And what about the obsession to rid this "cancer" from Congress? Ben says it's all politics: "We're all old enough to remember [before] Marjorie Taylor Greene, it was Steve King, and when it was not Steve King and it was Christine O'Donnell, and when it was not Christine O'Donnell, it was Todd Akin. Meanwhile, I got Nancy Pelosi on the cover of a magazine with Ilhan Omar, and it's like, well, 'that's just the way things go' five minutes after she was about to censure her for her anti-Semitism." Ben ends the show on a strategy to help Democrats and tearful journalists at Politico stop treating conservatives as domestic enemies.

How Biden will COMPLETE Obama's radical transformation of America

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal the moment in history we went from "America the Free" to "America the Oligarchy." He runs through a terrifying checklist of how much damage has been done since former President Barack Obama promised to "fundamentally transform the United States of America," and argues the Biden administration is really just Obama 2.0 on steroids, and progressive ideals are being executed at a hyper-accelerated pace.

While Joe Biden signed record numbers of executive actions, the World Economic Forum gathered to further push the Great Reset, and the ideas are nearly identical. There's a very specific reason why the first keynote speaker last week at the World Economic Forum wasn't an expert on free market capitalism, but the president of ... CHINA.

We are hurtling toward an oligarchy where Big Government merges with Big Corporations. They'll have all the power, and according to our betters behind the Great Reset, "You'll own nothing and you'll be happy."
