Learn About the Saudi Arabia Situation in Less Than 2 Minutes

Will Saudi Arabia go to war? The cold war between Saudi Arabia and Iran has been heating up in the last week, but very few people seem to be paying attention. On Monday, Saudi Arabia called a missile launch from Lebanon and militant group Hezbollah an “act of war.” Hezbollah is backed by Iran, and the missile was headed toward Saudi Arabia’s capital.

“Nobody is paying attention to this, and the world is changing,” Glenn said on today’s show.

GLENN: War drums are beating again in the Middle East. The fighting words now coming from the Saudis the past 24 hours have been difficult to keep up, especially if you're here in America. Because nobody is paying attention to this.

And the world is changing. It began this last week. On Monday, Saudi Arabia called a missile attack by an Iranian proxy an act of war by Iran. Literally, just a few hours later, the Saudis accused Lebanon of declaring war on the kingdom for supporting Hezbollah, which is an instrument of Iran.

The Saudi Gulf Affairs minister said Lebanon would be, quote, dealt with as a government declaring war on Saudi Arabia, end quote.

This morning, the Saudi crown prince, who basically is a de facto king, accused Iran of direct military aggression. The Saudis have used the word war twice in 24 hours, and now the most powerful man in the country publicly points the finger at Iran.

The Arab and the Persian Cold War has been going on for a very long time, but it is very rare that it is this public. And they never are this direct about it.

So what's going on?

Well, I'm going to try to break this down at 5 o'clock. Because there's a lot of pieces to this. But it boils down to this, a fundamental transformation of the Middle East is underway. Saudi Arabia and Iran and even Turkey are scrambling to see who will fill the power vacuum left behind as ISIS retreats.

All three of them want a caliphate. Iran has clearly been winning this. They have armed militias dominating the countries of Yemen, Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq. They're on the verge of near complete control. This is the caliphate that they have been working towards.

The Saudis are finding themselves a little late to the party, and they've apparently had enough. The direct confrontation between the Saudis and Iran will affect you. It will have global consequences.

I mean, I hate to even mention this, but there are so many people in America that will only pay attention to this when their gasoline is $5 a gallon. And that could happen. And it could happen quickly.

But that is the least of our worries. Militaries from all over the world will get involved, which will increase the chance a mistake may happen between these two rivals.

President Trump is in Asia this week. I am praying that he is directing all of his attention to the Middle East. The State Department should be in overdrive, working to cool this down because there are no winners in wars in the Middle East. I don't know if anybody has caught that. But there are no winners in the wars in the Middle East.

No one will win, if this war goes forward. But the war drums are beating loudly.

Segregation Survivor: How to Counter BLM's Race LIES | Bob Woodson | Ep 106

Civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson has lived through segregation and been a victim of racism. But he doesn't fit the Left's mold. In fact, he's providing an alternative narrative to their "equity." With the Woodson Center and 1776 Unites, he is offering solutions that BLM rejects, but that are actually helping improve the lives of countless people trapped in poverty and inner-city violence. He goes through all of this and more in his latest book, "Red, White, and Black: Rescuing American History from Revisionists and Race Hustlers." And he joins Glenn to make the case that the radical Left does not represent the majority of the black community. As leftist race-baiters make millions off branding the police as white supremacists while breaking the spirits of Americans of ALL races, Woodson calls out their moral treason, speaks truth to power, and denounces real racism for what it truly is: evil.

Biden's Big Speech: The Glenn Beck & Mark Levin Rebuttal

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

Is 2022 Our Last Chance to Save America? | Victor Davis Hanson | Ep 105

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself. And he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded and stop taking so much for granted. Hanson joins Glenn to point out that this needs to happen soon, because as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting ... bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

Dollar Decimation: How Biden’s Spending Spree Will End Our Currency

If it feels like the U.S. government is spending money like it's going out of style, it's because it is.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the TRUE state of our economy that the Biden administration doesn't want you to see. Obama kicked off a spending spree that was continued under the Trump administration, and now President Joe Biden will finally push us over the ledge with the $2.3 TRILLION "infrastructure" deal.

All signs point to a major economic disaster. And the perfect storm is brewing to convert the greenback into a new digital currency. Think Bitcoin, but with CENTRAL bank control, where we could see the end of private savings and private spending and your finances are tracked. Every time our money gets converted, your wallet will take the losses.
