GLENN: Oh, my. It is seriously, this is good. What's happening in Russia right now. Vladimir Putin, who just put a Russian pop singer, pop star. One of the biggest stars, I guess -- who would she be like? Beyonce?
One of the biggest stars, all kinds of awards, from Putin even. He's just arrested his -- or her husband, because he spoke out against the war, and so Putin declared him a foreign agent.
And now, she's saying, I want to be declared a foreign agent too.
Really? My husband is a foreign agent. Then I must be one too. Keep that to yourself.
Don't -- don't, no. It probably won't end well for you.
Stay away from windows and rooftops. I'm just saying. Yesterday, last night, in a very unusual and still unexplained move, Vladimir Putin, was two hours late for his speech. He's always on time. The nation waited and waited and waited for him to give this ground-breaking speech on Ukraine.
It was late. After two hours, the Russian news agency said, go to bed. He's not coming.
He gave it in the morning, which is late last night, our time.
And he -- and he did make some announcements, which, you know, wonderful.
He announced a partial military mobilization. Putting the country's people and economy on a wartime footing.
He -- he said, we have to turn Ukraine's people into cannon fodder. He said with be mobilization events would begin, Wednesday, today. He didn't say what that was, other than he had ordered an increase in funding to boost Russia's weapon's production.
He's also now telling, the -- the industries. What they should and should not make. I can't think of the last time. Because Germany just did that.
They took over some companies. And they were like, hey, we have to take over. Because we have an emergency on our hands. When was the last time Germany and Russia were telling their companies what to make?
Oh, man. There was a -- was it when they went into the beetle production in the 1960s? Oh, no. That happened earlier too.
I can't remember.
But the partial mobilization is kind of hazy. He wants citizens to contribute more to the war effort. But they haven't declared war. This is a special military operation. He said, I reiterate, we're talking about partial mobilization, that is only citizens who are currently in the reserves, who will be subject to conscription. And above all, those who served in Armed Forces, have a certain military specialty and relevant experience. Conscripts will be obligatory, and they'll go through the additional military training, based on the experience of the special military operation before departing to the unit. So he's calling everybody up. He also said, that nuclear options are on the table. No joke.
He said, this isn't a joke. I don't know if he was making fun of Joe Biden. But he said, it's not a joke.
That nuclear options are on the table.
STU: I've seen it translated as not a bluff, as well.
GLENN: Yeah. Yeah. Okay.
STU: Which neither one makes me feel good.
GLENN: No, no, no, no. And what makes me feel worse, is I'm seeing MSNBC and CNN run the chyron at the bottom of the screen, Joe Biden is going to be speaking now at the UN, and it's saying, he's about to give a critical speech about the war.
STU: What worries you with this?
STU: What worries you with this situation overall, though? Not just the speech from Biden. Russia, Ukraine. What do you see as the -- the --
GLENN: Nuclear war.
STU: I mean, how does that happen?
GLENN: How does that happen?
GLENN: We have a guest. Can we ask to push back. I'm so sorry. We just got the president's speech is coming.
The -- what's -- what I think could happen, is I think that the world leadership, they want war. The way to change everything is to have a war. Because everybody is so concerned about war, that hmm. Oh, well.
Who cares about the dollar, or replacing it? Or you are no longer doing that job or we don't have fertilizer. All of that stuff becomes secondary to a global war.
GLENN: Putin knows this. The western leadership clearly knows this. I fear that Putin could do something that would be provocative, and we will jump in, and escalate.
And before you know it, we're in nuclear war. Look, can we -- would you describe this? Let's do a play-by-play on this.
This is from Princeton University. This is plan A. What would happen if Russia dropped a tactical nuke, on Ukraine or somewhere in that area?
Just a tactical nuke, which is not Hiroshima. What would happen?
Well, would you like to play a game? Plan A.
What follows is a description about how conflict with Russia and the United States, could escalate from conventional war, to all-out war.
The first nuclear warning shots. The simulation begins with the concept of conventional conflict, and Russia uses one plane to drop a -- a non--- a nuclear weapon.
Nonconventional. And it's a little slow. There it is. There's -- there's the one bomb. So they drop one bomb. What is our response?
This is what I fear. Our response. Joe Biden is the tough guy. I mean, he was with corn pop, on the mean streets by the pool.
GLENN: And he's a tough guy, that, oh, yeah. Well, I'll show Putin. So they go into the tactical plan. Which our response.
What is our response here, Stu? Can you see that? It's so small, I can't.
NATO responds, and I think they -- they respond by sending three planes, and we start to drop --
STU: We drop one nuclear -- tactical nuclear weapon in response.
GLENN: Tactical. Right.
STU: And then Russia, they -- they escalate it just a tad here.
GLENN: Yeah. And they start to send planes out. And they're dropping regular nukes. And now they're starting to attack, not only Ukraine, but also the NATO countries, on the border of Russia.
We see this happen, we launch our planes. And we start to nuke, some cities in -- in Russia.
Then they launch their nukes, towards us. Well, they've got nukes that are being now launched from missile silos. We better respond. So we launch our missiles from our silos.
And if you're watching TheBlaze TV, it is stunning, the -- the look.
Already, three and a half million people are dead. And that's just basically in Europe and Russia. Now, we launch just from the center of our country, we don't launch the full thing. We launch from our subs, and we launch into Russia. And we aim at their nuclear silos. But as our nukes are coming down on their silos, they realize, we better launch, because we will lose our silos and all of our nukes.
And so they launch at our nuclear silos.
It's great. It's great. Because then we're going to launch again, on other silos. And it gets even better. Because then they launch, at our 30 biggest cities. And then we launch at their biggest cities. And then global warming is true. It goes from 80 degrees to 7,000 degrees overnight. That's great.
STU: You have no choice, but to laugh. And this is from Princeton. It's not just something somebody made.
GLENN: Right. And what's so concerning about this. If you want to reduce the surplus population. If you believe there's such a thing as a surplus population, if you want to reset the entire world, remember, who is Putin's brain?
Who is Putin's brain?
Putin's brain is Aleksandr Dugin. Aleksandr Dugin is the guy who came up with this whole thing in Ukraine.
And his plan ends with literally in his words, the literal biblical Armageddon. That we must completely destroy all of technology, and all of the old worlds, if you will, the one we're currently living in. So the world can be reset.
He makes Klaus Schwab, seem like my best friend. That's who designed this. So what you might think, could never happen, could very well happen. Because remember, the things we're talking about in the news today, much of it, I told you, would happen. And even I thought to myself, that can't happen. Really?
And look at the world we're living in
