Glenn Beck dedicated the entire hour of his television program Tuesday to the follow-up of what he says got him into “so much trouble” during the so-called Arab Spring: a chalkboard that predicted the protests would cascade, and that radicals would work with Islamists overturn stability.
On Tuesday, Beck told his audience where he believes the road will now lead: World War III.
“The one thing that always gets me in trouble is usually I am way ahead of the game, and I have no perception of time,” Beck said. “I see things on a flat wall. They are coming, but it won’t be tomorrow.”
He added: “I hope with everything in me that I’m wrong, but the pattern of history is incredibly consistent…Everything is up for grabs in the world, and the rush for power is on.”
Beck argued that there are currently three dominant groups:
‘The Caliphate’: “It is the stated goal of Muslim Brotherhood leaders and many far left Islamists to re-establish the Caliphate, the Ottoman Empire, or the global Islamic state,” Beck said, playing video of Islamist leaders across the globe saying just that.
But, he added, this group is divided between Sunni and Shia Muslims. While Sunni Muslims — who dominate much of post-Arab Spring North Africa, Saudi Arabia, and the Muslim Brotherhood — aim to implement an Islamic state, Beck said the radical Shiites who wield influence in places like Iran, Assad’s Syria, and Pakistan are more focused on hastening the return of the twelfth imam. They believe he will only appear when the world is drowned in blood and chaos, so they aim to create those conditions.
“But either way, they both [believe] they control the entire world in the end,” Beck said.
‘The Controllers’: “Whether they are communists, socialists, fascists, progressives, Fabian socialists, bankers, Bilderbergs, Nazis, drug lords, Mayor Bloomberg… ” Beck stated. “[This is] anyone who wants either wants power in their own little fiefdom, or wants to control the planet through the United Nations or whatever. Anyone who wants a slice of that ‘control’ pie.”
He put countries like Russia, China, and North Korea in the “control” category.
‘Those That Just Want to Survive’: But throughout the world, most people aren’t thinking in terms of global domination, Beck said. Most people just want to live their lives, or, depending on where they live, just want enough food and water to get by. Beck put about 90% of the world into this category.
“That, unfortunately, this is the group that loses in the end, because this group is always forced to choose between stuff and sacrifice,” Beck said. “They have to choose sides eventually.”
“The problem is, nobody is offering you a real choice,” Beck said, proceeding to draw out the potential “new map.”
“The only way we stand in the end is to stand for something. If we don’t, we’ll have to choose between one of [the first] two groups,” Beck declared.
At the end of the show, Beck invited Patrick Poole, the national security expert at PJ Media, and Frank Gaffney, the former assistant secretary of defense and the founder of the Center for Security Policy, to weigh in on his conclusions.
All three agreed that Syria is a lynchpin, and that intervention will have major, international ramifications.
“We’re watching flash points developing all over the world,” Gaffney added. “North Korea, China, Sweden, Venezuela and what’s coming next in Latin America, Africa…The problem is, we’ve got these tectonic shifts that are taking place, and we’re not an anchor.”

“The Snowden Circus and America’s Diminishing Influence”
I wrote this article for Arutz Sheva (Israel’s 3rd largest news site), published on July 19th 2013, here is an extract:
The Snowden circus is just the most recent example of Obama’s foreign policy of “leading from behind.”
It all started at the end of June when Hong Kong rejected the U.S. extradition request of NSA leaker Edward Snowden because the U.S. documentation did not “fully comply with the legal requirements under Hong Kong law.” Snowden arrived in Russia over three weeks ago, but Putin stands firm on rejecting U.S. demands of extradition. Since then Bolivia, Venezuela, Nicaragua and Ecuador have offered Snowden asylum; all of them ignoring America’s demands. Tiny, poor and weak countries can now defy the U.S. without any fear of reprisal.
Is this a deliberate strategy by Obama? Absolutely.
In 2009, when asked if he believes in American exceptionalism, Obama gave a very political answer in which he said yes, but made it very clear that he meant no. Obama answered “I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism.” In other words, no, he does not believe in American exceptionalism.
So, if America is not exceptional but clearly the most prosperous nation in the history of the world, this prosperity has to be unjust.
Thus Obama’s foreign policy has been characterized by punishing and weakening the West while rewarding the failures of the world. What has this strategy looked like in his first and early part of his second term?
…And then we have the Middle East where Obama acts inexplicably. He refuses to support pro-democracy protests in Iran in 2009, anti-Muslim Brotherhood protests in Egypt and recently anti-Erdogan protests in Turkey. The only ones he has supported were pro-Sharia protests in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and Syria.
Obama intervened in Libya to “stop genocide,” but refuses to intervene in Syria to prevent much greater genocide. The U.S. intervention in Libya resulted in the first assassination of a U.S. ambassador in over three decades. The U.S. support for toppling Hosni Mubarak (America’s closest ally in the region besides Israel) has resulted in an Egyptian economy on the brink of collapse and over 100,000 Christians Copts fleeing the country. Al Qaeda is carving out its own country in Mali, with Algeria, Yemen and now Syria following a similar path.
It took the Obama administration over two years to enforce new sanctions on the Iranian Regime which has surely hurt Iran’s economy and its people, but has not slowed down their nuclear ambition one iota.
At the same time Obama and his team have been very critical of Israel, and even allies in Europe are turning on the U.S. over the latest Snowden circus.
Obama sees America as the bully of the world. I, on the other hand, believe a strong and prosperous America has been the number one factor in maintaining world peace for the last 60 years. We are about to find out which one of us is right, as America’s days as world leader are numbered.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has gone on a charm offensive lately with multiple interviews with American media promising collaboration, but a recent video shows he takes pride in deceiving the West.
“Gone is the age of blood feuds,” Rouhani stated in an op-ed in the Washington Post. “World leaders are expected to lead in turning threats into opportunities,” he wrote in the Post Friday.
In interviews with ABC and NBC, Rouhani said that Iran will never develop nuclear weapons and that he has the authority to make a deal with the West. “In its nuclear program, this government enters with full power and has complete authority,” Rouhani said. “Under no circumstances would we seek any weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear weapons, nor will we ever.”
Despite the recent charm offensive in the American media, a recently revealed video of an interview prior to the June Iranian election shows him bragging how he, in his role as Iran’s top nuclear negotiator, deceived the West during negotiations on Iran’s illicit nuclear program even as Iran expanded its nuclear power. At the same time, Rouhani managed to relieve pressure by the West, especially in convincing the Europeans to avert possible military aggression by the Bush administration
“The day that we invited the three European ministers [to the talks], only 10 centrifuges were spinning at [the Iranian nuclear facility of] Natanz,” Rouhani boasted on the tape. “We could not produce one gram of U4 or U6 [uranium hexafluoride]. … We did not have the heavy-water production. We could not produce yellow cake. Our total production of centrifuges inside the country was 150.”
But then Rowhani admitted in the video the purpose of prolonging negotiations: “We wanted to complete all of these — we needed time.”
In the interview, Rouhani said that after he took over the country’s nuclear project, the country’s 150 centrifuges grew to over 1,700 by the time he left the project.
“Obama’s Anti Zionism” by Daniel Pipes
Were Barack Obama re-elected, I predicted two months before the Nov. 2012 presidential vote, “the coldest treatment of Israel ever by a U.S. president will follow.” Well, election’s over and that cold treatment is firmly in place. Obama has signaled in the past two months what lies ahead by:
- Choosing three senior figures – John Kerry for State, John Brennan for the CIA, and Chuck Hagel for Defense – who range from clueless to hostile about Israel.
- Approving a huge gift of advanced weapons – 20 F-16 fighter jets and 200 M1A1 Abrams tanks – to the Islamist government in Egypt despite the fact that its president, Mohamed Morsi, has becoming increasingly despotic and calls Jews “blood-suckers, … warmongers, the descendants of apes and pigs.”
- Reiterating the patronizing 35-year old tactic relied upon by anti-Israel types to condemn Israeli policies while pretending to be concerned for the country’s welfare: “Israel doesn’t know what its own best interests are.”
- Ignoring evidence of Cairo importing Scud missile parts from North Korea.
- Rebuffing the 239 House members who called for closing the PLO office in Washington in response to the PLO’s drive for state-observer status at the United Nations.
“Hamas to establish military academy for schoolkids” by The Jerusalem Post
Haniyeh says inaugural Gaza school will prepare kids as young as 12 to establish Palestinian state “from the river to the sea.”
Hamas plans to establish a military academy in the Gaza Strip to train and educate schoolchildren.
Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh announced on Thursday that the military academy, the first of its kind in the Gaza Strip, would prepare the children for the “phase of liberating Palestine.”
He said that children in grades 7-9 could join the school and graduate with a diploma or a BA in military affairs.
