World War III is a hot topic right now. Some are saying it will break out before Christmas. Is it that unrealistic? World War III was trending on Twitter earlier this year when Biden announced yet another of the many billion-dollar aid packages to Ukraine that, as the Kremlin warned, is funding a proxy war with Russia. We have continued to poke the bear, sending over $100 billion to Ukraine, while fueling Russia's campaign to forge a new axis of power with China, Iran, North Korea, and other anti-Western nations to counter the U.S.

We have continued to poke the bear.

Glenn has long warned about the development of this new anti-Western axis of power. Through the BRICS alliance, Russia, China, and Iran have provided developing nations that have been disillusioned by U.S. foreign policy an alternative to the U.S. dollar, severely diminishing its global influence. Moreover, Russia and China have strengthened their military alliance as the U.S. continues to deplete its munitions while neglecting its ever-weakening economy at home. If the anti-Western axis of power were looking for an opportunity to take advantage of America's weakness, it would be now.

Glenn has long warned about the development of this new anti-Western axis of power.

Following Hamas' terror attacks in Israel, World War III is trending again, and this time, it feels more imminent than ever. This new axis of power has escalated into military action to counter the American-Euro response to the conflict, inching towards the precipice of full-blown war. Here are five global events that demonstrate the deepening ties between the new axis of power—Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea—and how, as Glenn predicts, World War III is imminent.

China deploys 6 war ships to the Red Sea

Following Hamas' terror attacks, China's People's Liberation Army deployed six warships to the Middle East. Though the Chinese Communist Party and White House National Security Advisor John Kirby deny any connection between the deployment and Hamas' terrorist attacks, Israel is calling their bluff, and Glenn is too.

Shortly after China deployed its six warships to the Gulf of Oman, the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PCLA) engaged in joint military exercises with Russia and Qatar, the world's largest sponsor of the Muslim Brotherhood. Glenn said that these joint military exercises debunk any semblance of credibility to China's self-touted "neutral" deployment of six warships to the Middle East.

This is concerning for several reasons. First, China has sided with Arab nations, criticizing Israel's retaliatory military engagement in Gaza following the Hamas terror attacks. Chinese minister Wang Yi said Israel is "acting beyond self-defense" and continues to criticize the IDF's objective to take out Hamas. It is clear that China is no friend to Israel.

It is clear that China is no friend to Israel.

Moreover, China's military position in Africa poses a considerable geopolitical threat if the Israel-Hamas war becomes the catalyst for World War III. China maintains its only foreign military base in Djibouti, across the Gulf of Oman. These joint-military drills simulate the ease with which China could deploy additional troops from its naval base to the Middle East should the Israel-Hamas war erupt into a global conflict with Russia close behind.

The Pentagon announced that U.S. forces based in the Middle East have been attacked at least 13 times in the past week. According to Brigadier-General Pat Ryder, American troops were targeted ten times in Iraq and three times in Syria “via a mix of one-way attack drones and rockets." Though Iran has yet to claim responsibility, the Pentagon said these attacks have "Iranian fingerprints all over it.

Iran backs multiple militia groups in the Middle East, including the insurgent groups in Iraq and Syria that are suspected to have launched the recent attacks against U.S. troops in the region. In addition, Iran funds Houthi militias in Yemen, who incited an ongoing Yemeni Civil War against the U.S. and Saudi-backed Yemeni government. It is clear that Iran's military influence extends throughout the greater Middle East beyond its borders.

These attacks have "Iranian fingerprints all over it.”

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin ordered the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower and the USS Gerald R. Ford aircraft carriers to the Middle East in addition to multiple retaliatory airstrikes over Syria in response to the Iranian-backed attacks, signaling the escalating tension between the two powers.

Russia has taken on the lead role in deepening ties of what Glenn has described as the "new Axis of power" with China, Iran, and North Korea. Most recently, Russia's chief diplomat, Foreign Minister Lavrov visited Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang to address what he described as the US's increasing regional military threats in the region. Lavrov said:

The United States, Japan, and South Korea intensifying military activity here and Washington working toward moving strategic infrastructure, including nuclear aspects, here, are of great concern to us and our North Korean friends.

North Korea has played a crucial role in supplying Russia with weapons, enabling the Kremlin to bypass international sanctions to fund their war effort in Ukraine. The White House reported that North Korea had delivered more than 1,000 containers of military equipment and munitions to Russia. The revolving aid between traditionally sanctioned countries like Russia and North Korea demonstrates the decreasing effectiveness of Western sanctions to deter global aggression towards U.S. allies.

Glenn has long warned of the threat the BRICS alliance poses to the U.S. dollar and, consequently, the U.S.'s national security. BRICS was originally founded by Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa to provide an alternative to the U.S. dollar's global dominance in international trade. The dollar has been the default international currency since the end of World War I due to its stability and dependability compared to other currencies. This position gives the U.S. major leverage in geopolitical relationships.

BRICS provides an alternative to the U.S. dollar's global dominance in international trade.

However, BRICS has significantly diminished the U.S. dollar's global significance, giving developing nations who have been disillusioned by U.S. foreign policy a tantalizing alternative. The alliance has already enabled Russia, China, and Iran to bypass sanctions and solidify their influence in Africa and South America. Now, with Iran formally joining the alliance in 2024, Russia, China, and Iran will have an established means of bypassing Western sanctions and the "petrodollar" to build their parallel global economy.

Should a global war erupt, the petrodollar and sanctions will be rendered useless to stifle the war efforts of the opposing powers. Moreover, BRICS is expanding into 34 countries in 2024, shifting many countries that have traditionally looked to the U.S. for economic partnership elsewhere. As the developing world is being pulled towards the East, the U.S.'s historic economic supremacy during wartime would be severely diminished.

How RFK's example can help our nation in the wake of Trump's attack

How did you feel last Saturday when you heard the news that a former president of the United States narrowly avoided an assassin's bullet by a mere few inches? Were you angry at the media for their constant demonization of Trump and his conservative contingency? Did you blame the left for curating a political climate that fostered an assassination attempt?

In his immediate reaction to the news, Glenn pointed us back to a similar moment in American history: April 4th, 1968—the day Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated.

"The best speech I've ever heard given was by RFK Sr. on the day Martin Luther King was killed" - Glenn

Robert F. Kennedy, the father of current independent presidential candidate RFK Jr., was en route to Indianapolis when he heard the terrible news. His security team, expecting violent outrage across the country, asked RFK Sr. to turn around and head back to safety. But as Glenn said, RFK Sr. believed in the good in people and demanded to give his speech. He arrived in Indianapolis Park late in the day, and he addressed the crowd of predominantly black campaign supporters.

There were no riots in Indianapolis that night.

The message RFK Sr. gave that night wasn't one of vengeance, hatred, or hopelessness, but of calm and goodness. He appealed to the best in people. He called for people to set aside their differences, anger, fear, and confusion and instead express love and compassion towards one another. RFK Sr. asked for wisdom and the pursuit of justice so that we might be resolute in our unity as the country faces another difficult chapter.

What we need in this country is love and wisdom and compassion toward one another.

Glenn has made a similar plea to our nation—a plea for unity and not to lash out in fear and anger. Don't use this time to blame your friends and family who disagree with you politically for what happened or to tell them "I told you so!" Instead, reach out with compassion and grace. This is a turning point in American history. Let's turn it upward, away from hatred and violence and towards unison and compassion.

Fortunately, President Trump walked away from his attempted assassination with very minor injuries. The bullet that wounded Trump's ear could have just as easily ended his life, and his survival is nothing short of a miracle.

Sadly, that miracle didn't extend to everyone attending Trump's ill-fated Pennsylvania rally. Three other people were shot. David Dutch and James Copenhaver, both Pennslyavia residents, are thankfully in stable condition. Corey Comperatore, however, tragically died after being shot while protecting his wife and daughter from the hail of gunfire.

“Corey died a hero."

Camperatore, a 50-year-old loving father and husband from Buffalo Township, Pennsylvania leaves behind his daughter Allyson, his wife Helen, sister Dawn, and many other friends and family. Camperatore was a man of service, having spent 43 years as part of the Buffalo Township Volunteer Fire Company and had worked his way to becoming the fire chief when he stepped down to spend more time with his daughter.

Corey's friends and family have nothing but good things to say about him, and judging by their testimonies, Corey's final heroic act was consistent with how the volunteer firefighter lived his life.

According to many people who knew Compertore, he was a true patriot who loved his country. He was a fan of President Trump. Compertore was very excited to attend Saturday's rally, which he expressed in his last social media post.

During his speech addressing the shooting, President Biden expressed his condolences to the Comperatore family, stating that "He was a father. He was protecting his family from the bullets that were being fired.”

Democrat Mutiny? These prominent Progressives and Democratic leaders DEMAND that Biden withdraw

Biden is still taking hard blows from both sides of the aisle after his abysmal performance in last month's presidential debate. As Glenn pointed out in his post-debate coverage, Biden came across as so incompetent that it has made many Americans scared that, should the country face a major threat, Biden would be unable to respond to it. This includes many Democrats, who are finally admitting that Biden isn't as fit as they have been claiming for the last four years.

Many names have already been suggested as potential replacements for the Democratic nominee, but many people, including some Democrats, don't believe Biden should even stay in office for the election. Here are some prominent progressives and Democratic lawmakers who have called for President Biden's resignation:

These TOP 5 new technologies left Glenn SHOCKED

Peter Macdiarmid / Staff | Getty Images

Glenn has been covering some of the most groundbreaking, exciting, and often terrifying technological advances. Some new tech has the potential to make a positive impact. Some tech is just SUPER cool, like a flame-throwing robot dog. However, there is also a dark side to technology. Glenn exposes how some new technological developments, particularly in the realm of AI, pose serious ethical questions.

Here are the top five new technologies that Glenn covered that will make your jaw drop:

Anti-gravity device

This new technology developed by Dr. Charles Buhler and his team may change everything we know about transportation and travel. Described as "propellant-less propulsion" by Dr. Buhler, this technology appears to defy gravity and is potentially a way for people to travel into and through space without the need for rockets. It doesn't stop there either, this tech could be used to forever change the way we travel here on Earth.

Human embryo-powered supercomputer

To have massively powerful AI, something, which many people seem to have an invested interest in, you need a lot of electricity to power the computers that host the artificial intelligences. Naturally, this energy consumption upsets the environmentalists so in response a terrifying solution was developed. Bio Processors are essentially computer chips powered by human cells, specifically stem cells, which are predominantly harvested from embryos. These Bio Processors have a limited shelf life, meaning they need a steady supply of stem cells to keep the computers that use them operational. What could be more terrifying than an AI that eats human cells?

Voice-stealing AI

When ChatGPT came out in late 2022 its power and versatility took the world by storm. Suddenly, students had it write entire essays in mere seconds, and it was creating songs and poems with ease. The capabilities of the ChatGPT AI were as disturbing as they were impressive, but after a recent update, it took a hard turn towards disturbing. OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, decided to give the program a voice and tried to recruit famous actress Scarlett Johansson to lend her voice to the machine. After she declined the offer, OpenAI went ahead and released the update for ChatGPT featuring a voice that sounded eerily similar to Johansson's. While OpenAI claims it's a different, similar-sounding voice actress, the idea that a computer is going around with your stolen voice is terrifying.

Flamethrower robot dog

How could you possibly ever make something cooler than a flamethrower? Simple, strap it to the back of a robotic dog of course! Originally built to help fight forest fires (ironically enough) by creating backburns, Glenn pointed out that a pack of these bad boys patrolling your property would be the ultimate home defense. Nobody would come anywhere near your house if it was guarded by a few of these firey companions.

Wormhole-generating UFO's

It's been a decade since the tragic disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. No trace of the aircraft or any of its passengers, except a few small pieces of debris, were ever found nor was an official cause of the disappearance ever given. There have been an infinite number of theories explaining what might have happened, but this one from investigative journalist Ashton Forbes might take the cake for the wildest. Forbes joined Glenn on his radio show and brought with him convincing video evidence that seemed to show the now-missing aircraft being circled by three mysterious orbs before suddenly disappearing in a flash of light. Does this video show the doomed aircraft being sucked into an artificial wormhole, or is it an amazing piece of hoaxwork?
