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.

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.

Watch the special in full below:

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."
