Glenn Beck: Al-Qaeda on the ropes?


If right-wing extremist John McCain is elected America could lose yet another Hollywood celebrity to the profiteering, oil rich nation of Canada...

GLENN: Susan Sarandon says if John McCain gets elected, she's going to move to Italy or Canada. Maybe I'll move up with her. I mean, Susan Sarandon. John McCain's not even good enough for -- who do you think she's for? She can be for Hillary Clinton. She's got to be -- well, she's got to be a conundrum. She's really between a rock and a hard place because she's such a feminist that she's going to have to admit that she's either racist or sexist. Which do you think she picks, Stu? Is she a sexist or a racist?

STU: Oh, gee. I think she's probably going to be a sexist.

GLENN: I think she's going to be a sexist as well.

STU: You know why? Because you can always -- she's part of the sex. So she can say, well, I'm a woman; of course I'm not sexist.

GLENN: Sure, sure.

STU: She wants to get away from the racist part of it.

GLENN: Well, I can see why she wants to move out, especially with John McCain because the world will be a much more dangerous place with John -- oh, wait a minute. Hang on just a second. The one thing I can give John McCain credit for is he seems to have been right on the Iraq war because as soon as we started doing what he said we should be doing, gosh, casualties are down now this month from last year, down 83%? The CIA has come out today -- I love this one. The CIA director has come out and said not only we scored big gains against Al-Qaeda, they're almost out of business. We've almost put them out of business and we have put them out of business in Iraq. They have left Iraq and decided, they've stopped all recruiting in Iraq. It's just not working there. So I can see, the fighting didn't make it safer, it only made the world more dangerous and we're not getting -- and there's this quagmire, too. Quagmire.

STU: The surge won't work.

GLENN: We should pull our troops out right now. Stu the surge has failed.

GLENN: It has failed?

STU: It has failed.

GLENN: I thought it was getting better.

STU: Well, it's failed for them because they wanted it to get worse.

GLENN: You know what, Stu? You know what it really is? It's not that the surge -- the surge may have worked and casualties may be down 83% year to year but you know what? There hasn't really been any political change there, you know? There's not -- you know, they haven't come up with a political solution at all. The government still failed over there.

STU: So that's where we are now? I just want to make sure I know where the line is.

GLENN: That's where we are now. No, the government has. Forget about in 1791, you know, we're still struggling for our Constitution, you know, back in the 1780s -- 1776, great. Then we put the government together and our government fails until 1791. So don't worry about that. Government, once you change them and fundamentally change them from the core, you just turn the key. It's a turnkey operation. A lot like McDonald's. Countries are like franchises. You set them up, put the menu in front of people, you open up the doors and you're done. Maybe they forgot the playland but instead of putting balls in the playland they put like square cubes and that just didn't -- I'm not sure.

STU: It would seem to me that, what, we're 232 years old at this point? And we're not exactly running perfectly, either. We're still having our own political issues here and there.

GLENN: Uh-uh, no. Well, we are. I was going to say we're having those problems, but France is perfect.

STU: Right, obviously France.

GLENN: Well, France was perfect until a conservative took over. Now France is an abomination. You know, as soon as he started building and forcing them to have 80% of their power from nuclear energy, do you remember when he was elected last year and then he built all of those nuclear power plants and immediately went on 80% nuclear energy?

STU: Actually, no, that's been happening there for a long time.

GLENN: What?

STU: Yeah. They've had that way before Sarkozy.

GLENN: Well, it's not France but it's Italy. Italy is perfect. Italy is perfect. You know, the whole -- I mean, they've got healthcare, you know, right now. And, you know, -- sure, they're finally saying that healthcare's not going to work because illegal immigrants are coming in. But they say, hey, illegal immigrants, hey, they can have that healthcare for free, too, because we're not racist and hate mongers like --

STU: No, that's not what's happening.

GLENN: They are taking it away from illegal immigrants?

STU: Yeah, they're not allowed to --

GLENN: Even if they are going to emergency rooms, they can't get healthcare for free?

STU: You are not --

GLENN: Over in enlightened Europe?

STU: -- describing the policy differently. It's totally different.

GLENN: Well, I'm with Susan Sarandon. I think we move to Italy or Canada, if John McCain wins.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.

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.
