Glenn's interview with Georgia President


GLENN: First of all, give me what he said. Do you have which cuts do you have here, Dan? Do you have the missile cut? Listen to what he said. He's talking about how Russia is not fighting the Georgians. They are sending a message to us and the West through Georgia. Listen to this as he talks about the Russian missiles that are falling on this country. Georgia small country, if it were being butchered for the fact that close to the United States. You know the bombs, they have been thrown on our people killing hundreds of people for the last few days, I'm afraid to say thousands but hundreds at least. I hope it will not be thousands. You know they had inscription on them, this is for America, this is for NATO, this is for Bush. I told President Bush about it today, by the way. So it's all Russians are fighting war not with us at this stage. They are fighting war with the idea. They want to kill idea of freedom and by proxy. They imagine they fight war with the United States.

GLENN: Okay. Here's some of the other things that he said. First of all, again they are signing the missiles. Do you remember when we did that to Saddam? Remember when we did that to Osama Bin Laden? They are not fighting it with us with them. They are fighting it with us. They are fighting a war with the West. This is something that, you know and how many times have I had a fiction writer on recently and I've been saying now in fact, I just said it. Who was it, Daniel Silva? By the way, I'm reading Ted Bell's new book called czar. This is the story which is coming out in, I don't know, about a month or so. These fiction guys have it. If you want to see what's coming on the horizon, all you have to do is pay attention to the news. But then also look at the aisles of the fiction because these fiction authors are looking at what are possible scenarios and what's coming and especially when you see all of them coalesce. There's most of these that are out right now. All of the top sellers, they are all about Russia and they are thinly disguising Vladimir Putin and it's all about oil and it's about Putin and it's about controlling the West and it's also about their ties to the Middle East. It's been coming now and people haven't been paying attention. Meanwhile George Bush is like, oh, yeah, I look into his eyes, I think I hear the theme from Love Story. He's just so fabulous, I almost kissed him. No, I admit it. I looked into his eyes and I saw true love and I almost vivid him. I said, Vlad, may I call you Vlad? He said, sure, call me Vlad. "I just love you. By the way, Vlad, why do I know that name?" "Nothing to do with the impaler, blood." So now we're in this situation. So now what do we do? Well, I asked the president of Georgia last night, tell me why, tell me why America should pay any attention. Here's some more of our conversation.

SAAKASHVILI: America for us is a symbol of freedom worldwide. I grew up with ideals that America I grew up in Soviet communist society until the age of 20. I know I, for me, for my old, early childhood America was a dreamland. America was a place from which all the bright ideas came. America was the place which was great inspiration for me to raise my child. And then when Soviet Union collapsed, when the Cold War was over, when I went to study in the U.S. and finally I realized my dream, I never thought that this evil would come back again. I never thought the KGB people would again try to run the world. And that's exactly what's happening now. This is worst nightmare coming true. And what's at stake here is America's ideals. If freedom collapses in Georgia, it will collapse in both the countries, in other places as well.

GLENN: That is the important part for us to understand and realize. And I'm not saying I mean, jeez. I was concerned two years ago or three years ago when Iran began to align itself with Russia and Russia with Iran. This is just the continuation of that. That's what this is. This is the setting up of the axis power, the real axis power, and we have to pay attention to this because when Israel and notice I use the word "When." When Israel strikes Iran, the world is going to be set on fire and you're going to have to choose sides, and Russia has chosen their side. It is Iran. I truly believe out of arrogance and KGB evil that Russia believes they can keep this Muslim extremist genie in a bottle. They are playing a very dangerous game and they are choking off the power of Europe, and Europe is typical Europe. They are a bunch of wusses that can never stand up and never will stand up. And now they've put themselves in a situation to where they're not going to have any heat this winter if they cross Russia because they're a slave to their pipeline. I'm tired of being the world's policeman, man. I am tired of it. But it's important for people to understand what Georgia is really all about and what role it plays. This is Hungary, this is Austria, this is the arch Duke Ferdinand moment possibly, that it starts in one of those places and you are like, what the heck, what? Why would I care about Czechoslovakia, what? And then all of a sudden, boom, here it is. It is definitely, I hope it's not the beginning of something. I hope everything backs off. I doubt it, but I hope everything backs off and it is resolved, not just held in place. But it's resolved. But I will bet you that we'll all try to pat ourselves on the shoulders and say, no, it's okay now, it's okay, it's okay, and we'll back off and everybody will forget about it. But it has planted the seed for Russia's next move. What that move is I don't know, but it's planted the seed for the and the ability for the next move because they know the West is crippled and paralyzed against them and they won't want to do anything. You know there are some days that you just wake up and go, jeez, I am glad I'm not the President of the United States. Would you ever want this job? Can you imagine? Look at what the President, and I know this is a reason I said to my wife last night, I said this might depending on how this plays out, this might be the straw that breaks the camel's back for me which John McCain because imagine being the President of the United States with all of the things that are going on, all of the enemies that we have, with Venezuela and Iran and Islamic extremism and Russia. All of the things that are happening. Can you imagine getting up and just being like, oh, crap, what? You're kidding me, right? I don't have an answer, Jack! Call on somebody else! At least that's the way I'd be. That's why, you know, I'd never be elected President and wouldn't ever run for President. But it would I hope some point it makes all of us kind of look at it and go, shew. Maybe that experience thing, maybe I've been playing in the international community for a while, I know who these people are, I know how they play, I can look in the eyes of a former KGB agent and go, evil. Maybe that is important. Maybe. You decide.

The media went nuts after President Donald Trump said "Two Corinthians". But apparently, nobody cares when Joe Biden called the authors of Biblical Psalms "palmists" — twice.

During a Thanksgiving speech on Wednesday, Biden said, "I'm sure we can, we can pros-claim [sic] a palmist, with a palmist who wrote these following words, 'The lord is my strength and my shield and with my song, I give thanks to him.'"

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere pondered whether Biden actually meant to quote a fortune teller instead of a psalmist, but ultimately decided the former vice president likely had no idea what he was reading.

They also discussed the hairline fractures Biden suffered in his right foot on Saturday while playing his dog, and Glenn tossed out a few headlines he thought might work just a little too well.

The Supreme Court slapped down New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo's COVID-19 restrictions on religious gatherings Wednesday, arguing that strict limitations on the number of people in churches, synagogues, and other houses of worship — while liquor stores, bike shops, and many other non-religious places face few or no restrictions at all — are in violation of the First Amendment.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere applauded Justice Amy Coney Barrett, who reportedly cast the deciding vote in the 5-4 ruling, as well as Justice Neil Gorsuch who took specific aim at Gov. Cuomo for limiting religious gatherings to as few as 10 people in some areas, while imposing "no capacity restrictions on certain businesses he considers 'essential'."

"It turns out the businesses the Governor considers essential include hardware stores, acupuncturists, and liquor stores," Gorsuch said. "Bicycle repair shops, certain signage companies, accountants, lawyers, and insurance agents are all essential too."

"Government is not free to disregard the 1st Amendment in times of crisis," Gorsuch wrote in a separate opinion.

Gov. Cuomo has since called the Supreme Court ruling "moot" and "irrelevant" because he had recently lifted restrictions in most of the affected areas.

"This is a trick they play all the time. They've done this with Second Amendment cases as well," Stu noted. "They'll put a ridiculous restriction in that's obviously not constitutional, keep it in place for a year while it goes through the courts, and right before it gets to the Supreme Court they withdraw the rule. So then the case gets thrown out because it's moot."

Hey Joe, THIS is how you handle terrorists

Wikimedia Commons

If you haven't seen the new Apple TV+ drama Tehran, it's definitely worth your time. It tells the story of an Israeli spy who sneaks into Iran to set up an attack on Iran's nuclear program. Now that the new Bond movie is delayed, this show has a little bit of everything to hold you over: international spies, hackers, double agents.

But I digress...

No matter how Hollywood tries to invent these stories — and this one is definitely good — they always fall short of what happens in real life. What happened in Iran this past Friday is a movie waiting to happen.

What happened in Iran this past Friday is a movie waiting to happen.

Iran's top nuclear scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, was assassinated as he was traveling to his private villa just a few miles east of Tehran. The operation involved a team of over 60 people. Around 50 logistical support agents backed up a dozen gunmen. They knew everything. His schedule, his private address, his classified movements, the route...

Fakhrizadeh was traveling in the middle of three armored vehicles. When they approached the ambush site, the hit team cut off all the electricity in the surrounding area. A car bomb was then remotely detonated, taking out the rear vehicle in the convoy. 12 gunmen proceeded to open fire on the other two cars. Iran's top nuclear scientist was dead, and NONE of the hit squad were wounded or arrested.

Now you can already guess where the blame is being directed this morning. Almost immediately, the fingers began to point at both Israel and the United States. The mainstream media is trying to paint this as an effort by Trump to sabotage a Biden effort to restart the Iran Nuclear Deal. Remember that "masterful" stroke of Middle East foreign policy? You know, the deal that included $150 BILLION — in cash — that Obama and Biden knew would be used to kill Americans and destabilize the entire region. Remember that?

They said it was impossible... but Trump did it.

They claimed their way was the only path to peace. What did they get from it? Iran spread out all the way to the literal doorstep of Israel. The elite Iraqi troops of the Republican Guard were staging in Syria, plotting that ultimate attack to take back Jerusalem. The entire region was set to explode... but then Trump scuttled the deal. What did it lead to? Historic peace agreements between the Arab world and Israel.

They said it was impossible... but Trump did it. He reimposed sanctions and launched a campaign to kill terrorists rather than give them money.

John Brennan took to Twitter this weekend to call the assassination a criminal act.

It echoes what they said when the top terrorist in the world — Qassem Soleimani — was assassinated in Iraq. Coincidentally, the Iranian government published artwork over the weekend depicting Soleimani and the, now dead, nuclear scientist standing side by side.

You see, now matter how people like Brennan and Biden might try and say otherwise, this is exactly the type of person Iran's "Robert Openheimer" was: a terrorist in the same category as Soleimani (but obviously with a lot more dangerous capability).

Iran has been protecting this man for two decades. They called him merely "an academic," but denied the UN IAEA inspectors to ever question him.

The rhetoric Iran fed the global community was that their nuclear program didn't have anything to do with weapons, and that this nuclear scientist was involved in research to improve their energy programs. But in 2007, the CIA said this was a cover story. In 2008, the United States froze his assets, and the IAEA made it public that this scientist was leading Iran's nuclear weapons project.

Iran called it "Projects 110 and 111." Fakhrizadeh was tasked with finding out how to miniaturize a nuclear warhead and make it durable enough so that it could survive re-entry into the atmosphere on top of an ICBM.

There can be no accommodation with terrorists.

Obama and Biden's nuclear deal didn't stop ANY of this. Israel revealed in 2018 that Projects 110 and 111 continued. Fakhrizadeh was specifically called out as still being the main man in charge.

Biden thinks his policy of accommodation will somehow bring us the peace that Neville Chamberlain once thought was possible with Hitler. When has this borne fruit with any maniacal tyrant or terrorist... ever?!

And that's exactly what Iran and their thugs are. They're terrorists! They're not a legitimate regime. Long before ISIS, the terrorists in Iran stole a country, planning to spread their caliphate all over the world. Members of Al Qaeda, despite being Sunni, enjoy free sanctuary under their protection. They want to burn Israel to the ground. They chant "death to America"... It's actually a holiday there.

There can be no accommodation with terrorists. Biden wants peace with Iran, and he'll probably roll out a red carpet and offer them a few hundred billion more dollars. We know this doesn't work. To quote Reagan, "there's one way to have peace and you can have it in this second... surrender."

That's how you deal with terrorists, and — whether we were involved or not — another one was just taken out.

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."
