Yes, Russia Is a Threat to the US – but It’s Not About Trump

Russia is targeting the U.S., and it’s been going on since long before the 2016 election.

On today’s show, Glenn talked about both President Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton’s questionable connections to Russia and warned people not to get caught up in one story or another.

“They even took what looked to be bribes from the Kremlin connected to banks in Moscow,” he said of the Clintons. “Why did it look like a bribe? Because it affected U.S. policy towards Russia.”

While connections to the Kremlin should be investigated on every side, the main takeaway is to realize that Russia is a threat that has been taken for granted for too long.

“The threat from Russia is real,” Glenn said.

GLENN: The threat from Russia is real. But it has absolutely nothing to do with Donald Trump.

Before it was sexy to talk about collusion or interference in the elections of our campaigns, our old friends, the Russians had their sites set on something huge. Putin was pulling out all of the stops to find out what the new Russia reset was going to look like.

Russian espionage measures included everything from legal lobbying efforts to deploying the American-style deep cover sleeper agents.

If you think that this isn't happening, you are part of the problem.

What if I were to tell you that a wealthy American family with aspirations for the Oval Office had been targeted by Russian intelligence. Not only were they targeted, but high-ranking members of their staff were actively being infiltrated. They even took what looked to be bribes from the Kremlin, connected to banks in Moscow.

Why did it look like a bribe? Because it affected US policy towards Russia. You tell that story to anyone here in the United States, and they'll think that you're talking about Donald Trump.

All of the above happened in 2009, in 2010, in a Russian plan to infiltrate Bill and Hillary Clinton.

An FBI counterintelligence investigation revealed that the Russians were using American companies to gain access to high-ranking people close to Hillary Clinton. They also revealed that Kremlin decade money given to Bill came suspiciously close to meetings with Hillary, that she had in Moscow, regarding several issues that Moscow had an interest in. The Uranium One scandal was just one of them. And that is a huge item.

The Clinton case and the Trump case are so much alike, but the ladder HEP has gotten all of the media attention. The truth is this, the Russians are targeting America. They have been targeting us for a long time. If you ran for president, they would be targeting you.

Not only is this threat real, it's getting worse. And it's not about Donald Trump. It wasn't about the Clintons.

We are the ones. We are the ones that have made this a partisan issue. Not the Russians. The United States is under attack. And we better start acting like it.

Tulsi Gabbard Smashes LIES about Our Military & Conservatives | Ep 99

It's hard to put a label on former Democratic congresswoman and presidential candidate, Tulsi Gabbard. She has worked with Bernie Sanders but has also felt the fires of the Left and mainstream media for simply putting her love for this country above partisan politics. Lately, she has even sided with conservatives on issues from transgenderism to Big Tech censorship. But as much of the nation dives dangerously deep into partisan politics, Tulsi calls on Democrats to turn their talk of unity into action and joins Glenn to lead the way. Together, they ask who's defining "extremism," why are there still troops guarding the Capitol, and how long will we let our First Amendment be trampled on as Congress "bullies" conservative media outlets and the COVID-19 restrictions persist? And Tulsi shares her own experience in the military that shatters the far-left narrative that it's crawling with white supremacists.

CONTROL FREAKS: The Great Reset Overlords Who Will Ru(i)n Your Life

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription to Heal America | Ep 98

To the Left, "unity" means "destroy everyone we disagree with." But Dr. Ben Carson has another message: "We are not each other's enemies." As the Biden administration insists America is systemically racist, Dr. Carson's life proves just how far we've come. Despite facing poverty as a child, he became a renowned neurosurgeon, a candidate for president, and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development — one of the only Cabinet members to survive all four years of the Trump administration.

He joins Glenn to review his time in the administration, including as part of the White House's coronavirus task force, and how he discovered "the swamp is deeper and wider than I expected." But above all, he urges Americans to take courage and stand for our freedoms — and previews his newest venture to do just that as founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute: "What version of America do we want?"
