Putin could ESCALATE Russian efforts against Ukraine SOON

Tension in Europe continues to escalate, with ramifications being felt around the world. Glenn gives an update on Russia and Ukraine, including the latest (very public) pledges made by U.S. politicians to help Ukrainian forces. Plus, Glenn details how a recent, risk by Secretary of State Blinken and Defense Secretary Austin to Kyiv put America DANGEROUSLY close to becoming directly involved in the conflict. And, finally, will Putin escalate — with tactical nukes — as soon as May 9th?! In this clip, Glenn gives possible Putin actions that may be around the corner…

GLENN: And the war is only going to make things worse. Which brings me to two things. First of all, Russia has just cut off a major supply of natural gas, to Poland. Gazprom just cut off the gas supplies, to two countries, that are both NATO members.

And it marks the first time, of -- of us being able to say, yeah. Ronald Reagan said this would happen. Why did you let them do this?

But they have become dependent on Gazprom, and dependent on Russian fuel. And now they've turned it off. This is the first time, since the Soviet era, that Russia reacted this way.

So now, gas supplies are down. We're not doing anything about it here. In fact, Putin -- I mean, Biden is delaying more things that we could do to help with the gas supply. And he's saying, no at this point, for environmental reasons.

But here's what's really disturbing: Listen to this story from the Washington Examiner. Near the beginning of the Russian invasion in Ukraine, which commenced February 24th, U.S. Intel provided to the Ukrainians help that defeated a Russian operation, that was meant to rest control of the airport near Kyiv. They helped, and it gave the Ukrainians the ability to shoot down a Russian transport plane, carrying hundreds of Russian troops, according to NBC News.

Had Russia been able to maintain the control of the airport, its forces captured it for a short time, Moscow could have used it to solve many of its logistical and supply problems.

Various U.S. defense and intelligence officials have spoken in broad terms, about the intelligence sharing with Ukrainians while frequently choosing not to get into specifics.

However, in a statement, a spokesperson for the National Security Council, told the outlet, quote, we are regularly providing detailed timely intelligence to the Ukrainians on the battlefield to help them defend their country against Russian aggression, and we will continue to do so.

General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told the House Armed Services Committee. That, quote, we have. And I'm not going to reveal in an open hearing, the intelligence, we have collected. And how we did all that.

But this war has arguably been the most successful intelligence operation in U.S. military history. The chairman also pointed out, that the U.S. played a significant role in providing Ukraine with the tools to ensure Russia it not achieve air superiority. Quote, the fundamental significance of air defense systems, in order to deny an opponent, that ability to achieve air superiority and supremacy. That's what's been done by the Ukrainians. But it was done with a huge amount of help from the United States with stinger missiles.

Also, because of our intelligence feeds, end quote.

Why the hell are we saying these things?

There is a great article in the Federalist. Listen to this. As the war in Ukraine drags on, the United States is making a clash with Russia, more likely, with each passing week.

What are we to make of a comment from Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin, that the Biden administration's goal in Ukraine is to see Russia weakened to the degree that they can't do the kinds of things that is done in invading Ukraine.

Austin made the remark in a press conference with the Secretary of State. After the pay for met with Ukraine's president Zelinsky in Kyiv.

In what was the highest level visit by U.S. officials since Russia invaded Ukraine. One obvious conclusion we can draw from Austin's comment is that the Biden administration is now committed openly to a policy of escalation within in Ukraine. The White House intends on keeping the war on Ukraine, alive, with the stated goal of weakening Moscow. By continuing to pour new and more advanced weaponry on to the war-ravaged country.

Indeed, Austin and Blinken announced a new round of military aid on Monday to Ukraine, bringing the total amount to $3.7 billion since the invasion began.

After resisting pressure early in the conflict, to support Ukraine, with advanced weapon systems, the Biden administration has changed course. It is now preparing to send heavy artillery. Helicopters. Armored personnel carriers. Anti-aircraft radar systems. Advanced attack drones. And other weapons.

Austin told members of the press, the Defense Department won't just send weapons. But will expand military training for Ukrainian service members in the region, on certain weapons systems being provided.

Quote, delivering all of this aid is an escalation of the U.S. involvement in the war, senior U.S. military officers, at a facility in Poland. Described accelerating logistical network for supplying weapons and material to Ukraine.

So they are sending all of this stuff over. They're sending it into Ukraine from Poland, by railroad.

Now, did you hear that after these clowns were over, in Ukraine, meeting with Zelinsky, that just after they left the country, Russia bombed the train stations?

How did Blinken leave Ukraine? By train.

Minutes later, they bombed the train stations. Imagine if there would have been a timing issue on that one. What was it the foreign minister said, from Russia, this week?

STU: Sergei Lavrov, you'll remember him from much of the Trump/Russia talk, back in the day, that the media was so obsessed with. He came out, and on state-run media. Said, the danger for World War III was real. The danger is serious. It is real. You can't underestimate it. Also, spoke about the possibility of nuclear war. Being real. And, you know, all of this stuff doesn't make any sense. You're totally right, saying, you know, we shouldn't be announcing all this stuff all the time.

Even like, for example, the Blinken visit, right?

They announced this. What's-his-face from Great Britain went over there. And we found out about him when he was already there.

GLENN: That's the way it always happens.

STU: That's the way it always happens. We instead, are saying it in advance. So we're like, hey, on Saturday, Blinken is going to be there, our Secretary of State. Now, that opens you up to all sorts of issues. For example, even the type of thing where a rogue group of Ukrainians, right? Who want to draw us into this war, could -- could affect that situation. What if one of our officials is over there, and God forbid something happens to them?

Of course, obviously the suspicion immediately is going to be Russian forces. But it could be anybody. And if that were to happen, we could be drawn into this war. We tell them in advance, we're going to be there. Seems like a massive mistake to me. Luckily, nothing happened. As you pointed out, it was pretty close.

They're saying, the Russians are signaling to us, don't come. Don't do this. Don't be involved in this. And we keep saying, well. Not only are we going to be involved in it. We're going to embarrass you publicly, by telling everyone, that we're involved in it. And you can't do anything about it.

Now, as Russia gets more and more desperate. And cornered. What are they going to do?

GLENN: So let me tell you what some are speculating is coming. And it's the key date of I think it's May 15. I'll give it to you here in just a second.

When you donate to charity, I mean, you're probably like me. You want to make sure it's a worthy cause, that it does what it says it's going to do. The Tunnel2Towers Foundation. Charity Navigator rates them four out of four. Since 9/11, Tunnel2Towers Foundation has been supporting America's heroes with their families. So when somebody goes down a first responder or military service member. They don't come home. And there's children left behind. They pay the mortgage, to lift the financial burden off of that family. So they can do be stable.

Catastrophically injured veterans and first responders. Tunnel2Towers builds mortgage-free smart homes, enabling the severely injured to live more independent lives. And now Operation Home Base, tunnel2Towers is gifting tiny homes, to homeless veterans. This is who we are. This is how Americans behave.

And you can do be involved for $11 a month at That's It's Help them out. Ten-second station ID.


GLENN: So if we look at what is -- if we look at what is happening over in Ukraine, and you look at where things could head, you have Putin and Russia painted into a corner.

Military seemingly teetering on collapse. They have zero replacement capacity for most of the weapons systems that they've lost. Too many high-tech components. And unless he can dramatically change the narrative in Russia, he needs a million volunteers to join the army. And that would be a solid six months, before any of the new recruits, could come online.

So there's two ways he can handle this. Surrender. Or up the stakes.

So it's not the 15th, it's the ninth. May 9th, say huge holiday and celebration in Russia. It's the day that -- it's the day that they beat the Nazis. Remember, they lost like 20 million people in the war against the Nazis. In Russia.

It was a horrific thing. So they remember this. And this is a huge day of celebration. There is a shot that May 9th is such an important day. That Putin will use May 9th as a launching ground.

Possibly -- I mean, some people think nukes, tactical nukes, which he will say, oh. We're not bluffing. Your turn.

It wouldn't be an ICBM kind of thing. This is a -- you know, a tactical nuke. It will be used, you know, over troops or something like that. But it is a nuke.

How would we respond?

That could be happening, as soon as May 9th. Just say a prayer, that everybody stays calm, until that goes. And somehow or another, we don't inflame the situation.

I think it is not insane. Historically speaking, the progressives, the Fabian socialists in -- in Great Britain, they wanted World War I. They wanted it, with bated breath. They helped egg it along.

I -- I just fear that there are those, all over the world, that feel the same way about this. They want The Great Reset's cover.

America WON'T Last Much Longer if Men Don't Do THIS | Glenn Beck at Fearless Army Roll Call 2.0

America WON'T Last Much Longer if Men Don't Do THIS | Glenn Beck at Fearless Army Roll Call 2.0

Will America survive the 2024 election? As sides are being drawn, many men want to be the heroes that they believe will save this nation. But all true heroes, Glenn Beck says, have one thing in common: They didn't want to be heroes. They were afraid just like the rest of us. But they put aside that fear, surrendered to God, and did what was right. THAT is the kind of hero America needs: one of character, humility, and integrity. One who will stand for the TRUTH and teach it to his children, no matter what the culture says. In his speech at Jason Whitlock's "Fearless Army Roll Call 2.0" event, Glenn tells the stories of 2 heroes. One, George Washington, is well known. But many today don't know the true reason that men followed him into battle. The other, Raoul Wallenberg, few Americans have heard of. But his story of heroism during World War II brought Glenn to tears. Heroes: they’re all around us," Glenn declares. “This is OUR time. This is YOUR call.” To watch the ENTIRE Fearless Army Roll Call 2.0 event, sign up at for exclusive access.

102-Year-Old WWII Vet Who Survived the DEADLIEST Bomber Unit Tells All

It has been 80 years since D-Day turned the tides of World War II, and it's likely the last major anniversary that we will mark with living WWII veterans. John "Lucky" Luckadoo survived the Air Force’s "Bloody Hundredth" bomber unit, which suffered an incredibly high casualty rate. Now, at 102 years old, he sits down with Glenn to tell his story: Why did he join the Air Force? Why was the "Bloody Hundredth" so bloody? How accurate was the Apple TV+ series "Masters of the Air," which told the story of his bomber unit? And what was Hitler's "grossest miscalculation" about America?

EVERYTHING ELSE Hunter Biden Should Be On Trial For

EVERYTHING ELSE Hunter Biden Should Be On Trial For

Hunter Biden is in court for allegedly lying on a federal form to purchase a gun in 2018. But going after JUST Hunter Biden's federal-level crimes is part of the government and media's misdirection. They would love us to zoom in and just look at the cases they control. But what happens if you zoom out? Glenn heads to the chalkboard to reveal all the other accused crimes that we have direct evidence for and SHOULD be prosecuted, many at the state level. What about the "possible human trafficking" that was flagged by JP Morgan? Or the 170 other bank transactions related to Hunter and the Biden family that have been flagged by banks? Will all that be swept under the rug?
