Theresa May is laying groundwork to retaliate against Russia for UK poisoning attack

Twelve hours.

That’s how long Russia has to explain how a military-grade chemical weapon found its way from Russia into the United Kingdom. The attempted assassination on a former Russian double agent resulted in 21 UK citizens being hospitalized.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has given Moscow until the end of the day Tuesday to prove --- if they can --- those rogue elements of the Russian intelligence community did this without the approval of the Kremlin.

If they are unable to prove it, or if they choose to deny this entirely, May has threatened “extensive measures.”

So the $64 million question is, what are “extreme measures?” I don’t know whether to laugh or be frightened at the political football Putin is playing with the West. Consider that this attack was ordered and executed by Russia, 21 UK civilians were caught up in the middle, and everyone knows who did it.

In using a chemical nerve agent that’s produced and stored ONLY in Russia, Putin basically put his autograph on this. It’s the equivalent of a Putin smiley emoji with the words LOL, as he knows there’s nothing substantial the UK or NATO will do in retaliation.

It definitely sounds as if the UK is getting NATO all on board for whatever response they’re planning.

So how do the British respond? Secretary of State Rex Tillerson announced last night that the attack “clearly came from Russia” and that it will “trigger a response.”

It definitely sounds as if the UK is getting NATO all on board for whatever response they’re planning. At the very minimum, the UK could kick out a few Russian diplomats. That’s how they responded the last time Russia was fingered in an assassination on British soil, BUT there was no collateral damage in that attack.

Their next option would be to pop every Russian spy known in the country and severely downsize Russian diplomatic staff. This could include expelling the ambassador.

It would be mutually assured destruction, however, as Putin would respond in turn by doing the same thing to the British ambassador in Moscow. Russia, UK and NATO relations would sink to an all-time low.

A military option is obviously off the table. You really have to feel sorry for our cousins across the Atlantic. Their hands are tied, and the bear in Moscow knows it AND he’s probably amused.

A military option is obviously off the table.

The world has to figure out a way how to get tough with Putin. We obviously botched it when not one, but two presidential administrations failed to respond when they attempted to influence the election. Maybe the British will finally figure it out and discover the meaning of a proportional response.

Oh, and one more thought....

The British identified the chemical agent used in this attack, fingered the nation responsible for it, AND did all that in just a matter of a few days. It has now been TWO WEEKS since a letter was opened at a military base in Arlington Virginia, leaving 11 people sick and hospitalizing 3 United States Marines. The poison used has officially been called “an unknown substance,” but the symptoms sound very similar to a chemical nerve agent.

We’ve reached out to the Army and NCIS... They won’t tell anyone jack-squat. Our Marines were attacked on US soil, and we STILL haven’t heard anything about it. We can’t even get a basic update. Are the British better at investigating than we are, or is our government purposely keeping this a secret?

Demand transparency AND justice for our men and women in uniform.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
