Glenn Beck: Dead Heat


Dead Heat

By Joel Rosenberg

GLENN:   How about Barack Obama saying that he wants to meet with the leaders of Iran?  What do you say?  Jimmy Carter says let's meet with Syria, that will be fantastic.  Meanwhile Israel is preparing for war.  Israel is doing these drills.  Do we have Joel Rosenberg on the phone?  He's in Jerusalem.  Hello, Joel.

ROSENBERG:  Hello, Glenn, how are you doing?  Three days away.  Hang in there.

GLENN:  Three days.  Then I'm free at last, free at last.  Joel, tell me about the drills that are happening right now in Israel and they say, you know, this is just ordinary run-of-the-mill stuff but you say it's not, right?

ROSENBERG:  No, this is very, very significant.  The entire country of Israel is engaged in a five-day exercise, the largest emergency drill ever performed in this country, a country of 7 million people.  1.7 million schoolchildren today had a race in the bomb shelters practicing as one part of the nationwide effort to prepare for a massive avalanche of missiles coming down from Iran, Syria, Hezbollah and Hamas.  We just met with the Israel welfare minister this morning, one of the senior advisors to primary Olmert to be briefed, a number of evangelical leaders we've got over here for an epicenter conference tomorrow.  And he basically made the case that the existential threat to Israel is Iran.  They have no doubt here in Israel that Iran is feverishly trying to build, buy or steal nuclear weapons.  What they don't understand is why Russia is helping them and why the United States and NATO seems to be asleep at the switch.

GLENN:  Let me just switch gears with you here because I mean, you know, we've got Iran installing more centrifuges.  You know, I've been talking about this for years that Iran is the head of the snake over there.  This is just an evil, evil group of people that are preparing for the Mahdi which if you -- I don't think I've ever asked you this, Joel.  If you look at the 12th Mahdi and the way these nut jobs over in Iraq interprets the Qur'an and everything else, this guy looks an awful lot like the antichrist, doesn't he?

ROSENBERG:  He does, but he's not.  The Bible describes antichrist with a capital A and a little A.

GLENN:  Right.

ROSENBERG:  Meaning there's no question that what Ahmadinejad is in the spirit of the antichrist and what I mean by that is he wants to annihilate Judaeo-Christian civilization.

GLENN:  I'm not talking about Ahmadinejad.  I'm talking about the 12th Imam.

ROSENBERG:  Oh, absolutely.  There's certainly that same feeling.  Now, the Bible describes in Daniel 9 that the antichrist will come from Roman origins, from the people who destroyed Jerusalem in 70 A.D., but that being said this will certainly be a false Messiah of which Jesus described in Matthew 24, three times in one chapter describing what to watch for in the last days.  Jesus said watch for false Messiahs and this will be one of them.  Now, what I don't know honestly, Glenn, is that is it possible that in the next few weeks or months or years someone is actually going to emerge that CNN and Fox and MSNBC and all these other networks will start to cover, Time will have them on the cover and could end up being the Mahdi of the year.  I don't know.  You know, we don't know what they're talking about.  What we know is that Ahmadinejad and his allies believe so passionately that this Mahdi, this Islamic Messiah is coming and what's driving their foreign policy in Iran right now is their belief that they need to get ready for this Mahdi by annihilating two countries:  Israel whom they call the little Satan, and the United States whom they call the great Satan.  And anyone in Washington who doesn't understand the theological drive that's pushing Iranian foreign policy is at risk of being blindsided by an evil they may not see coming.

GLENN:  Well, here's the thing that most people don't understand and I didn't understand it for a long time, we're the great Satan and little Satan, blah, blah, blah.  What they mean by that is it is the same story line that Christians have.  For the most part it's basically the same story except Israel is the little A antichrist and we are the big A antichrist.  They don't -- we look at it as a person.  They look at it as a country or an overwhelming force, right?

ROSENBERG:  They do.  Now, there is in the Qur'an an actual character named the Gajal (ph) who becomes an actual sort of antichrist figure, an actual person.  But you are absolutely right.  Radical Islam is a mirror image and therefore a massive distortion of the Jewish and Christian scriptures but there's a lot of similarities.  It's just completely opposite.

GLENN:  Right.

ROSENBERG:  They have a war of Gog and Magog, a Russian Iranian alliance that attacks Israel but they feel it wins.

GLENN:  Wait, wait.  I just want you to slow down on that.

ROSENBERG:  Okay.

GLENN:  Gog and Magog, anybody who is a Christian grew up hearing Gog and Magog and you don't even know what it is.  It is Iran and Russia aligning themselves.  It's already been done.  It's an amazing thing when you look at -- well, let me ask you this because this is what you do for a living now, Joel.  Would you say that most of the big things are either, have already been done or they are on the verge of being done?  The players and the pieces are in place to be able to get you to the end time?

ROSENBERG:  Absolutely.  You know, there are a thousand prophecies in the Bible.  More than 500 of them have already been fulfilled.  The last almost 500 of them deal with specific events that happen in the last days.  Now, I'm literally looking out of my window in a hotel looking at the Mount of Olives and the temple mount here in Jerusalem as I speak to you and on the Mount of Olives Jesus was asked by the disciples, hey, when are you coming back and what should we watch for, what are the signs of your return.  Now, Jesus could have given a very Washington political answer, a Rumsfeld answer:  No comment, next question.  But he doesn't.  He answered the question.  And when you look at that list and you look at events that are happening in this world today, it's kind of eerie because you can check them off one by one and then when you expand that list to look at other references to, quote, the last days or the latter times in the Jewish and Christian scriptures, you start saying, my goodness.

For example, you just described this prophecy of the war of Gog and Magog which as you and I have talked about before is Russia and Iran.  Now, what's amazing about that is that Russia and Iran have never had an alliance with each other in the 2500 years since Ezekiel wrote the prophecy.  Now, is that proof that the prophecy is going to be fulfilled in our lifetime, much less soon?  No, you've got to be careful not to overreach.  However --

GLENN:  People have been saying this for thousands of years.

ROSENBERG:  Yes.  However, for 2,500 years this alliance, this political and military alliance in those two countries has never happened.  It's why heads are starting to turn.  And when you add all the other things, the preparations that ultra orthodox Jews are making, for example, to building their Temple, this is kind of interesting.

GLENN:  How much of that is done and in storage?  I've heard that the Temple, everything that is needed is done and is in storage just waiting for the space.

ROSENBERG:  Well, the architectural plans are finished, the outfits, the clothing that the priests will wear are finished.  The implements that will be used for Temple sacrifice are largely finished.  And two years ago -- actually three years ago now, the summer of 2005 the Sanhedrin, the group of 71 rabbis that will govern the Temple was reconvened for the first time in 1600 years.  So I call these strobe lights that you are coming in on a runway.  We're not entirely sure how far from touchdown that we are but when you look at the preparations being done in Iraq to rebuild the literal ancient city of Babylon, they're underway.

I interviewed the Iraqi finance minister for my book "Epicenter."  He's a senior Iraqi advisor to the prime minister and he described for me -- it's on the record in "Epicenter," he described for me the plans they have to rebuild that city and the tremendous cultural center with Holiday Inn and an amusement park.  It's quite fascinating.  Look, a lot of people say, you know, how do we even know that -- I mean, people have been saying for thousands of years the end of the year, blah, blah, blah.  I understand that.  But I'm standing right now in the nation of Israel which did not exist for 2,000 years and the only document on the planet that says it will exist in the last days is the Bible, and 60 years ago this country was reborn.  Jews started coming back to the Holy Land.  The ancient ruins have been rebuilt.  The deserts are blooming.  We've taken hundreds of evangelical leaders over the last few days through this country to see that Israel is the super sign, the one that you say, okay.  When the Bible says look for wars, rumors of wars, earthquakes, famine, persecution of the believers in the last days, yes, that's all happening but it's always happened.  What makes it different now is that Israel has been reborn as a country and that Russia and Iran are forming and alliance to annihilate her.  It's got -- you know, these are what I've been writing these novels about, nonfiction book "Epicenter."  This new book, "Dead Heat" is the aftermath.  But the point us even for a skeptic, even for a cynic you have to say, goodness gracious, there are some trend lines that don't make sense outside of the prophecies of the Bible.

GLENN:  I tell you, Joel, we want to continue our conversation in a couple of weeks if you don't mind.

ROSENBERG:  Sure, absolutely.

GLENN:  You are coming back and I'd like to do a series with you on radio and television about the different things that you're seeing and kind of spell it all out.  I just finished your book last week, week before last.

ROSENBERG: "Dead Heat."

GLENN:  I mean, it's just tremendous.

ROSENBERG:  Thank you.

GLENN:  I told you this last night on television it's the first time I've ever heard anyone explain.  The United States is not mentioned in the book of Revelation.  Nowhere does it say the United States or refer to us or anything like that.

ROSENBERG:  Right.

GLENN:  And people have said, well, that's just because we're all going to be in -- we're such a perfect, kind, Jesus-loving nation that we're all going to go up in the rapture.  And I'm like, have you read the news lately?  But your book, you take a different bet on it that we're going to be vaporized, that several cities will be vaporized.  I think -- and you mention this in the book.  You know, it could have been an economic vaporization or anything.  I mean, there's a million things that could take us down right now that would make us not able to participate in the, you know, in the destruction or the defense of Israel.

ROSENBERG:  Well, that's right.  Now, I want to be clear with you on radio as I was on television last night which was the first line of this new novel, "Dead Heat" is I pray to God this one never comes true.  The eerie way of the fictional elements seeming to come true and I don't want people to think that the Bible predicts the United States is going to get hit with nuclear terrorism.  I don't.  What I'm laying out is a fictional scenario that I think is potential consistent with the scriptures and which give people a chance to think through what might that look like and how might we be blindsided in the midst of a dead heat, in the midst of a campaign in which the country's so focused on an election which the race is so tight and the country is so bitterly divided that we are just not looking when we get hit by something that we should have seen coming but we didn't.

GLENN:  It's a frightening thing.  Joel Rosenberg, the author of "Dead Heat."  Listen, if you read the "Left Behind" series, like the "Left Behind" series, this is left behind, I think, this is "Left Behind" for talk radio listeners.  This is all of the real life things that are going on right now and you can look at them and go, oh, my gosh, and you can see it.  It doesn't start on an airplane with everybody disappearing.  It takes you all the way through on the real life things that are going on.  It's a "Dead Heat," Joel Rosenberg.  Great book, sir, and stay safe in Israel, will you?

ROSENBERG:  Enjoy your vacation and I look forward to seeing you when we get back.

GLENN:  You got it.  We'll see you in a few days.  Bye-bye.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."

The Biden administration has weaponized the federal government against the American people. But officials have hidden most of their attacks behind a secretive and cavernous bureaucracy.

There are so many unsolved mysteries that Joe Biden and the Democrats not only refuse to answer, but in some cases appear as though they are ACTIVELY trying to cover up. Like what happened on January 6? Who is Ray Epps? Who planted the pipe bombs? What’s in Biden’s executive order on elections? What happened to the SCOTUS Dobbs leaker? What’s the COVID origin story? What’s happening with crypto, FTX, and the Central Bank Digital Currency?

These are just a few of the unsolved mysteries that we need to DEMAND answers on. On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck outlines a chalkboard that will leave you convinced the DOJ and FBI are LYING to the American people. The more secrets the Deep State holds, the more its power over us grows.

'I NEVER thought I'd talk about this': Was Glenn Beck's CHILLING dream actually a WARNING?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck decided to share a very unusual, extremely vivid dream he had ten years ago — a dream he thought he'd never talk about on the air until he began to see it as a warning that we should all know about.

"I never ever thought I would talk about this on the air, but I feel compelled to tell you that seasons have changed again, and it is becoming more and more apparent. You need to know what you're dealing with," Glenn began.

"If you are a long-time listener of this program, you know that one of the reasons I left New York ... was that I had a medical condition. Part of it was brought on by no REM sleep for about 10 years ... and for 10 years, I never had a dream," he explained. "However, during this period I had what could be described as a dream. I do not believe it was."

"In this 'dream' ... I am in a hallway of the White House. And I'm walking into a big room where there's a bunch of cubicles, and people look up like, 'who's walking in?' There are people behind me, but I don't know who they are yet. I just know I'm being pushed forward by them," Glenn continued. "I realize that everybody in the White House is terrified of who's ever behind me ... I glance back and I see people that are in uniforms that I've never seen before. I have seen them since, but that will be for some other time...."

"So, these guys in the uniforms are in the hallway, and one guy says, 'him, him, and him, take them out' ... and I'm the only one still sitting at the table. They go out ... then I hear three gunshots and they say, 'yeah, that happened pretty quickly for them. However, you, we're going to get to know ... because you really have no idea who you're dealing with.' And that's when one of them ... ripped off his face and he was Satan. Or, he was a demon, okay? Horrifying. Then I wake up."

Glenn went on to explain that, while the dream was so vivid and disturbing that he thought about it almost daily for well over a year, it was what happened next — during a discussion with a prominent religious leader — that really hinted his "dream" might actually have been a vision of the future and a warning.

"I will never forget it, and I will never dismiss it," Glenn said of what he learned. "I'm sharing it with you today because you must not dismiss what you're dealing with. We are not in a battle [of] politics ... our whole culture has become evil."

"You have to get to a point where you are going to choose a side. There will be no one left on the benches, and if you think you can sit it out you will end up on the wrong side. I urge you to know who you serve. This is a different time in human experience. This is not normal. None of this is normal," he warned.
