Here’s Why Russia Is Banned from the Winter Olympics

What happened?

Russia has been completely banned from the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea after the country’s state-sponsored program for systematically doping its athletes was discovered. Olympic officials are still working to sort through which athletes were using steroids so they know which medals to take back.

Uh-oh. This seems bad.

It’s serious business. The International Olympic Committee is cracking down on Russia after a thorough investigation of the doping scheme. The Russian flag won’t be seen at the opening ceremonies, and Russian officials are banned from attending the games.

Will Russian athletes compete at all?

Technically, they can – as long as they compete under a neutral flag and any medals they win aren’t counted toward Russia’s official medal count. The record books will document zero medals for Russia at this Olympics.

GLENN: Every night during the 2014 winter Olympics in Russian Sochi, Dr. R waited for delivery of the list. The list contained the name of Russian athletes so elite and on the top of their sport, that they had to cheat by taking steroids. And just after midnight, a secret signal told Dr. R it was time to go to room 124. Secret room built by the Russians attached to room 125, the gold room. Not where the Olympic gold medals were stored. This was a liquid gold storage room. This was the Olympics urine sample lab.

So once Dr. R was in place, another Russian official in the gold room passed urine samples through a secret hole in the wall. He obviously had to have good aim. But once he calibrated a steady stream of urine -- I mean, this is a sample, mind you, flowed through the wall, into the other room to Dr. R.

Then because these were specials with engineered urine sample bottles, Dr. R passed them to a Russian FSB officer, who whisked them. Almost said whizzed them.

Whisked them to a secret building nearby, where the tamper-proof bottle caps were completely tampered with. A few hours later, the bottles were returned to Dr. R with the caps magically loosened.

Now Dr. R got to work and emptied the bottles. He cleaned them. Replaced them with non-steroid urine. And the bottles were slipped back through the hole in the wall to room 125.

I mean, this is crazy. Vladimir Putin was behind this. I mean, they were cool with this.

It was a way for him to have his cake and eat it too. Hosting the Olympics and winning 33 medals, a third of which were won by Russian athletes who were part of this elaborate doping program where you're peeing through the wall.

All fun and games, until the whistle-blowers show up. One of whom was Dr. R. He blew the tamper-proof lid off of Russia's doping scheme. And, yesterday, for the first time in its history, the International Olympic Committee banned Russia from participating in the 2018 games in South Korea.

Putin says, what a surprise, US conspiracy, in retaliation for alleged Russian interference in our election. Yeah, I don't think America cares that much about the winter Olympics, Vlad. I mean, I just don't.

If I were in the Olympic Committee, I would look into joining the witness protection program, however, like Dr. R already has. He is currently living in an undisclosed location here in the US.

If you have to go into a witness protection program because you helped Vladimir Putin's people pee through a wall, what won't this guy kill you for?

Jordan Peterson Knows Why We're Obsessed with Aliens | Ep 107

What is it about looking up at the night sky that fills us with hope and amazement? The beauty, the possibilities, or perhaps … aliens? In this episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Canadian professor and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson breaks down all three and ties this hope to something he and Glenn agree is being destroyed by the modern cancel culture: The ability to forgive and forget. Peterson is no stranger to the unforgiving mob, and his latest book, "Beyond Order: 12 More Rules," faced woke outcries before it was even published! He dives into these new rules and more — technology, mythology, religion, college brainwashing, Star Wars, discount Karl Marx dolls, and plenty more sources of chaos and order that amaze and terrify us all.

WATCH: Race-Baiters Be Damned: 3 Big Lies About Racism DEBUNKED

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.
