FULL TRANSCRIPT: Beware of the Global Woke Empire

Charlie Kirk: [00:00:00] Hey, everybody. What is the global woke empire, where is it from, where does it go and how does it involve Russia and Ukraine? We go through a history of what happens when America tries to remove dictators, tempting at times. I totally can sympathize with this idea that certain people shouldn’t be there. They’re evil. But then what do we do about it? That’s the prudent question. So we explore that and so much more. Email us your thoughts. As always, freedom at Charliekirk.com.

Charlie Kirk: [00:01:28] So the Ukrainian-Russian situation is ongoing. It’s very murky. It’s increasingly cloudy as far as the situation on the ground. Late last night, there was a story that came out that allege that Russia attacked a nuclear power plant in Ukraine. The largest in Europe is the way the media covered it. Ukraine nuclear authority accused Russia of shelling the Ukrainian power plant, saying that a fire was broke out at Zapatera Zaire nuclear power plant. The NPP. But the Ukrainian State Emergency Service units put the fire out at 6:20pm, the State Regulatory Inspectorate reported Zap power units remain intact. Unit one reactor compartment auxiliary buildings have been damaged, which does not affect the safety of the unit. So immediately Ukraine comes out and they say, Hey, this is an attack from the Russian government. It’s an attack on all of Europe. We need to respond in kind, but it just happened to not be true. Yes, there was an electrical fire. There was something that triggered it, but it was not a intentional shelling of a nuclear power plant. Here’s how I know why. Immediately, my friend in Chicago and I were texting back and forth, and he made a very astute point. He said, wait a second, why would Russia bombing nuclear power plant if the let’s say, radioactive exhaust could blow east into Russia? Why would they do such a thing is that why would they bomb a nuclear power plant that could actually harm the people of Russia if the winds were to carry the radioactive overflow exhaust for everyone to call it? They wouldn’t. It wouldn’t make any sense. It would be completely and totally irrational. But this is a theme, and this is a pattern that I want us to take a step back. And it very well might be. The Ukrainians are on the right side of this. In fact, I think Putin is definitely on the wrong side of this. Invading a sovereign country is disgusting and reprehensible. It’s evil. I think Putin needs to be held accountable for that. But we also need to kind of take pause and say, wait a second, how many? How many lies from the Ukrainian government are we going to put up with? How many times are they going to say something happened that actually didn’t happen, we went through the Snake Island situation where allegedly 13 Ukrainian Marines and Border Patrol, I should say, told the Russian military, Go f yourself. And they were bombed as their last words. It just so happens. They actually didn’t die. Or how about the ghost of Kiev? The ghost of Kiev allegedly was a fighter pilot that shot down multiple Russian fighters. Not true, doesn’t exist. The Russian shelling might have caused the fire, but some reports are saying that the Ukrainians fired first. They treated an inactive, debunked nuclear plant in Chernobyl with kid gloves. Why would they be so reckless with a live reactor? The answer is they wouldn’t be. It’s probably a lot more nuanced than that. Now we must remind ourselves that Ukraine, the Ukrainian government, not the Ukrainian people, and I totally stand with the people of Ukraine that love freedom and have been abused by these awful, thuggish leaders like Zelensky and others. I’m not a fan of Zelensky, I’m just not. The more you read about him, the more you realize that there’s something wrong with that guy. There’s something that does not add up, and he is a professional actor. The people of Ukraine. They deserve so much better than that. But Ukraine is a vassal state or a proxy state of the ever expanding global woke empire. Trying to institute socially liberal radical Western values in more and more countries. We went through some of the beliefs of the Ukrainian government under Zelensky, free abortion, marijuana everywhere, all these different sorts of things, they want to institute them into Ukraine. The tension right now is between Ukraine’s alleged government stood up by the global woke empire and Putin’s aggression. And let me be very clear, the global woke empire we’re going to we’re going to coin that term, by the way, the GWB. Because there’s the global there’s a World Economic Forum, I like the GWB, the global woke empire, where they want to almost evangelistic Lee bring the transgender ideas all this nonsense into new places is up against. A nother source of part of evil Putin’s alleged Russian empire. Now, Ukraine’s secret weapon, Ukraine’s Trump card, is not a nuclear reactor. Ukraine’s way that they think they can win this conflict is not. Better air power. Ukraine has a secret weapon. And it’s this. The Ukrainian government, not the people of Ukraine. They believe they can propagandize the West to fight on their behalf. They believe they can create narratives, tell stories, Zelensky is doing his best Quentin Tarantino routine. Zelensky is trying his best to create a film might be out of order, like Pulp Fiction might be really bloody like Reservoir Dogs might have a lot of swear words, like once a Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. But the point is that it’s going to tell a story. And the story that Zelensky wants to tell, and you can’t totally blame him for this, by the way, his country is under attack. But we must know what we’re consuming. That’s the point. I’m actually not criticizing a country for wanting to make it seem like things are going better than they are. As the famous quote says, the first casualty in war is truth. Is that in a kind of perverse way, Ukraine is incentivized to escalate this conflict? Ukraine and the government of Ukraine is actually incentivized to make this seem worse than it actually is. The government of Ukraine right now is in a position to try and drum up support for intervention. Now, the people of Ukraine, they’re fighting hard. I think it’s heroic and it’s admirable. In fact, I think there is a through line between the grassroots bubbling up of energy that we see of moms and dads showing up to school board meetings in America and the people of Ukraine that are going to fight for what they believe is right and true. And by the way, the people of Ukraine fighting, they’re not fighting for Zelensky. Many of them are fighting against the ancestral hatred of Russians that killed their family members. So this is a provocative question, but I want you to think about it, who is more incentivized to start World War three or at least a more, let’s say, comprehensive wider engagement Ukraine or Russia? I’m not saying that Russia wants peace, Russia does not want peace. You don’t invade a country wanting peace, that’s ridiculous. But which country is more likely to want to get the West involved? Which country is more likely to try to send or try to compel America to send people from South Carolina, Ohio and Arizona to go fight 5000 miles away? Well, of course it’s Ukraine. There a smaller country, and they’ve also been funded primarily from the global woke regime or the global woke empire four years. The. Ukrainian government wants to increase. The tension they want to increase Western support. That’s their incentive structure. And with that being said, there’s story after story. That is untrue, and again, you can’t blame them for this. But here’s the thing is that the West can’t fall for outright war propaganda. That’s the point is that we must look at the stories they oh, there was no ghost to leave. That Snake Island was not true that miss Ukraine. The supermodel actually isn’t going to go fight on the front lines. Though that’s an airsoft gun no different than kind of war propaganda that would be shot for Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games, with all the noise surrounding the topics of money and the economy.

That’s debated by a lot of different people, some people say, providing arms. Some people say providing resources. And it’s hard to disagree with the sentiment that we should stand with the Ukrainian people. But I am trying to draw a distinction between the wonderful people of Ukraine and their corrupt, rotten good for nothing. Government of a George Soros puppet installed World Economic Forum trained Trudeau, but Trudeau best friend comedian Zelensky not a fan of his. I haven’t been for quite some time. He’s an actor. He knows what he’s doing. However, a response that is now being, let’s say, trial balloons are floated out by none other than Lindsey Graham. Is that, hey, look, let’s just assassinate Putin. OK, let’s just cut out all this nonsense, and let’s just bring in the snipers, activate the CIA agents and take out Vladimir Putin. There’s two cuts of this up 107, [00:13:24][716.5]

Clip: [00:13:25] somebody in Russia has to step up to the plate. Is there Brutus in Russia? Is there a more successful Colonel Stauffenberg in the Russian military? The only way this ends, my friend, is for somebody in Russia to take this guy out. You would be doing your country a great service and the world a great service. [00:13:44][18.0]

Charlie Kirk: [00:13:45] OK, well, first of all, just everyone gets the reference. Of course, that’s from Julius Caesar written by Shakespeare, but the story is absolutely and totally historically correct. One of the great pieces of in the English canon ever written by Julius Caesar. Beware the Ides of March, and we are 11 days from the Ides of March, which is March 15th. That’s the first line of Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare. If you’re high school or college, Kid has not studied Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare, you’re missing out. It’s historically really accurate. The dialogs are incredible. And of course, the most famous line is, of course, when Julius Caesar himself, the first Roman emperor who oversaw the transition from the Roman Republic to the Empire, turns up his head while he’s been stabbed and looks Brutus, his very good friend in the eyes and says a too brutal way. One of those famous lines, ever. Britain, the five parts, of course, are exposition, rising action, climax, falling action and. Denouncement or denouncement? OK, so those are based off Aristotle’s poetics, OK, but Lindsey Graham continues his call just so you guys all get the Brutus reference because remember, there was a conspiracy that was launched against Julius Caesar among the Roman Senate Speaker, the Senate, the people of the Republic of Rome. OK, cut 104. [00:15:06][80.9]

Clip: [00:15:07] The way this will end is when he gets charged with a war crime, Putin and his cronies, and one day we nabbed him when he leaves Russia. But the best way for this, the end is have an Eliot Ness or Wyatt Earp in Russia. The Russian spring, so to speak. Or people rise up and take him down because if he continues to be their leader, then he’s going to make you complicit with war crimes. You’re a good people. You’ll never have a future. You’ll be isolated from the world and you’ll live in abject poverty. So I’m hoping somebody in Russia will understand that he’s destroying Russia, and you need to take this guy out by any means possible. [00:15:46][38.3]

Charlie Kirk: [00:15:47] OK, so let’s just all understand what that means for a sitting member of the United States government to be calling for an assassination of another leader that could be interpreted as a threat of an act of war just so that we’re all clear. You know, we are all trying to say that we need to have calm, measured diplomacy. Let’s not get into World War Three. We want to have our children and our grandchildren live in a hopefully a western society we recognize not one that has been completely completely obliterated by a nuclear holocaust. And then, meanwhile, Lindsey Graham goes on television and says, Hey, I know what we got to do. We got to go assassinate that Vladimir Putin guy. We just got to activate all those CIA agents, those Spetsnaz, those KGB guys. All those guys that they say that you just got to go, do be Brutus wider. Go be a hero. Goodness gracious. It does not take. Very much wisdom. To look at what Lindsey Graham is saying and say. That is probably imprudent. That’s probably going to escalate it further, so let’s let’s play this out. So Putin quote unquote wins elections with 80 percent of the vote in Russia. OK, it’s probably manipulated. Let’s pretend that 60 percent of the country likes him. OK. And by the way, if you know anyone that has spent time in Russia, he is loved in a lot parts of Russia. They love Putin. So you’re going to assassinate the leader of Putin after the United States government calls for it. And what do you think their response will be? We’re going to kind of go back in the Wayback Machine. Leader of Russia when we go back in the Wayback Machine. And how is it that when leaders are assassinated, how does that usually work? Yeah, usually more chaos ensues. So how’s your new year going so far? Pretty good, I hope. But it’s been tough, hasn’t it? Lots of us have begun to wake up and smell the roses. And some of us have smelt coffee instead. All of us are now realizing how quick time is rushing past. You’re that much closer to retirement and that much closer to not earning. But in the meantime, you’ve got some catching up to do with crypto and markets very risky right now and inflation running anywhere between eight to 20 percent and conservatively, it’s eight percent.

Call us at eight seven seven six four six five three four seven or visit our website at Noble Gold Investments dot com. That’s noble gold investments. Dot com. OK, we’re going through this idea of regime change. Sir Lindsey Graham has called for the outright assassination of Vladimir Putin. It’s not like he did it in code words. He said it explicitly. He said, Rise up, take him out. So how has that worked in the past? Well, let’s look at Iran. Iran, the people of Persia are actually the people of Persia are actually wonderful people. The Iranian government is. Horrendous, one of the most despotic evil governments on the planet. Now in the 1950s, there was a political movement in Iran to institute a different form of government. Iran was previously under Shah rule. It was under rule of, you could say, an ancestral blood dictatorship. But the people of Iran democratically wanted to elect somebody new as prime minister. Now there was a prime minister type of, let’s say, system, but they wanted to put someone in to nationalize the oil. It was all about oil. And so, of course, Mohammad Mossadegh was put into office by the people, and he served two years from 1951 until 1953. What has now been verified and corroborated in CIA documents and MI6 documents the and led, by the way, by Kermit Roosevelt Jr., a coup de as blunt and as, let’s say, unquestionable as one can find, Mossadegh was displaced and the Shah was reinstituted back into power. It was the 1953 Iranian coup d’etat. It was in favor of strengthening the the monarchy, ruled the Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi on the 19th of August of 1953. So everything seemed just fine. And by the way, this is because Massoud, they wanted to audit the documents of the Anglo Iranian oil company. You see, as the West started to have a bigger and bigger and broader and broader appetite for oil, Iran, the people of Iran like, wait a second, why are we giving all of this money to the West? Why don’t we nationalize it now? We’re of course not in favor of nationalizing oil. But if the people of Iran wanted to do it, then that’s not really our business in the West instead. The people running AMFEST sex and people running the CIA saw that as a big problem. So then the shock came back into rule for the next twenty six years. Now this is what’s so important when you talk about dictator displacement. This is what’s so important when you talk about that term regime change. Lindsey Graham throws it around on television like it’s no big deal because sometimes you can see the results of your regime change immediately, like with Moammar Gadhafi from Libya. Sometimes you could just see him immediately while Libya goes to a civil war because of it. Not good. Other times, it doesn’t bubble up for the next couple of decades, and you might actually have created something far, far worse. So after we took out the democratically elected supported by the people most hog day, what happened? Well, people started to turn really radical. So then in the 1970s? All of a sudden there was a legitimate revolution. In 1978, January of 1978, the Iranian revolution, otherwise known as the Islamic Revolution, it was a series of events that helped overthrow the Shah of Iran, and it turned Iran from a secular Persian non religious government into one of the most totalitarian Islamic regimes on the planet. Now, why did this happen? What happened because of pent up frustration from the West involving themselves into the legitimacy of the Shah of Iran? It also did not help that the Shah was very sick. He was feeble. He was not himself. He kept on visiting the West for medical treatment, and it paved the way for a new theocratic government to take place. It does beg the question that if we would not have involved ourselves in the displacement of the democratically elected Iranian ruler in the early 1950s took him out through a coup and put the Shah back in. Would the Islamic Revolution have happened the 1970s? Probably not. And so now we live under the consequences of Iran getting closer to a nuclear weapon. Iran wanting to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth. Iran supplying China with energy and Iran funding terrorists that kill Americans. So we replaced a bad guy with a evil guy that we could control. And the Shah wasn’t evil, he was just an idiot. And then all of a sudden Iranian revolution happens. And you have an even bigger problem, but it’s not isolated to that. How about in Libya? In Libya? Hillary Clinton running the State Department with Barack Obama’s president, we decided it was a good idea to go in. And tried to assassinate Gadhafi, which actually turned Libya into a bloody civil war conflict. How about in Syria? I remember the Arab Spring, which was largely a foreign intelligence operation to try to have dictator displacement. It was like democracy is coming to the Middle East. No, it wasn’t, actually. Not at all. In Egypt, it went from Mubarak to, I think, coursey pretty quickly. The Brotherhood really never lost some of their power. Algeria never really turned over hands this kind of Arab Spring really didn’t turn into much of anything. By the way, it wasn’t anything consequential or was anything significant. And in fact, the Arab Spring reached Syria once it reached Syria. What happened? The Syrian civil war broke out and sides had to be chosen. So thankfully, we rejected the repeated calls by John McCain and Lindsey Graham. We got to arm the Syrian rebels. We got to arm the Syrian rebels. It’s a proxy war against Russia. My goodness, I’m glad that we didn’t get involved in that one, but we sort of did. We did a little bit here in there. But what happened then? Well, what happened when we got rid of Saddam Hussein, another regime change dictator displacement issue? What could possibly go wrong? Well, despite a trillion dollars and six thousand Americans either dying or having permanent injuries, or tens of thousands of Americans committing suicide afterwards, or hundreds of thousands of Americans having PTSD. Well, what happened after that? ISIS was created. So when you take out dictators, Mr. Graham, sometimes something even worse happens. In fact, most times something even worse happens. Now why would that be? Because power needs to be needs to be distributed in a way, hopefully from the bottom up, from the people up. But when you immediately destroy a power vacuum, then there’s usually chaos that follows an assassination of a leader could lead to World War One, which is what we saw with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand when he was in Sarajevo, now known as Bosnia. Now I want to go to this tape here of John McCain while he was alive and Lindsey Graham basically preparing via a translator for a proxy war with Russia all the way back then. And you see the then prime minister of Ukraine kind of chuckling and laughing because here’s what you must understand. The government of Ukraine loved these deals with the West because they like plopped off 40 percent of all the money, all the goods, all the stuff that came in kept it for themselves. This has been, if you know, anyone that has ever dealt in the foreign aid business in Africa, it is an enrichment scheme for despots and dictators and people that otherwise would never have been able to become wealthy. There’s a lot of Range Rovers in Ukraine. Wonder why play Cop 103, [00:26:52][664.9]

Clip: [00:26:53] your fight is our fight, why separate votes in national body? Twenty seventeen will be the year of offense. This is not enough for all of us will go back to Washington and we will push the case against Russia. [00:27:08][14.9]

Charlie Kirk: [00:27:09] OK, so I wish we had the full tape. It gets even worse. So he’s talking to this entire room of Ukrainian troops back in 16, saying This is the year of offense. Your fight is our fight. And by the way, you know who else was there? The Snow Woman, Amy Klobuchar was there. It was the Snow Woman, John McCain and Lindsey Graham. And so Putin listens to this. While Lindsey Graham is willing to play offense. We’re going to get you all these beautiful little super suits and you’ve got to come and assassinate the snake. Take the head off the snake and then Putin’s listening this, he says. Wait a second. I thought Naito was supposed to stop. And I’m not justifying the invasion of Russia, of Ukraine, of course not that would be silly and stupid, but I thought Naito was a defensive measure, not a offensive measure. And there’s Lindsey Graham, the head of whatever, you know, silly Senate committee, saying, I am going to go back to D.C. and what does he say explicitly? Your fight is my fight. Oh, really? So basically, he’s saying America is just basically now transported five thousand miles away in Ukraine. So the whole idea of NEDA was supposed to be defensive and a deterrent, not a offensive. Measure. And that goes to the point I made earlier that this is Ukraine was the farthest reach of the global woke American empire. Where we tried, and this is the thing is that they always say, well, we knew what do we need to export Western values to them, I said, Well, what if they don’t want them? And also Western values, are you talking about are you talking about freedom of speech? Totally support that you’re talking about constitutional rights totally is part of that. Oh, you’re talking about abortion? Oh, that’s what you want to bring to Ukraine. Got it. OK, so you oh, you’re talking about transgender issues? Oh, I see. Do you see the problem there? It’s like, oh, you want to have the BLM flag and the Pride flag for fly over Keith, like you did with the state departments all across the country. So what Western values exactly are you trying to export? What if everything in life is a lot more complicated than good men, bad men? What if it’s a lot more murky, a lot cloudier? Well, here is one thing that isn’t complicated, though, and I want to reiterate this is that the people of Ukraine are showing courage. And they have been used as proxies by these thugs and these oligarchs on both sides, by the way. To try and in, let’s say, incite a conflict where it doesn’t exist, binaries are for children. A lot of life is nuance, it’s in the detail. It’s in. It’s outside of just a one minute cable news segment where they try to use visual stimulation propaganda, carefully worded Kiran’s and sound bites to try to trigger and elicit a response from you to try to act. The furthest reaches of the global woke regime in the Empire was in Ukraine. And the hero worship of Zelensky, not of the people of Ukraine, is coming from the same people. That told you to trust the science and America’s systemically racist. I’m going to be a little bit suspicious of that, actually, I think we should be a little bit sober on how we consume this information and how we act. Prudence must be our guide. Hey, everybody, Charlie Kirk here. You should be concerned about today’s headlines. I am too. It’s not pretty. So here’s the thing you should rely on yourself, especially when it comes to food. Food shortages will only get worse in the coming months. Do you have emergency food on hand that you can rely on when more empty store shelves appear? If not, I urge you to get the four week emergency food kit from my Patriot Supply the the nation’s largest emergency food company, and they’ve served millions of your fellow Americans over the last 15 years. And right now, you save $50 on their four week emergency food kit. This food stays fresh up to 25 years and proper storage. It will be there when you need it. Go to prepare with Kirkham right now to save $50 per kit. Act now and your order will ship quickly and arrive discreetly at your door in unmarked boxes in three days or less. Let’s prepare with Kirkham. Prepare with Kirkham. Check it out. Right now, you are nine meals away from anarchy. Prepare with Kirkham. Act now and your order will ship quickly and arrive discreetly at your door in unmarked boxes in three days or less. We have to be very careful and discerning consumers of news. And also, I believe I have an obligation to try to go a level deeper to try to say who is behind this government of Ukraine, who is behind this entire situation, what’s really going on here? Well, Ukraine, because of their, let’s say, government’s willingness to accept money for nothing has kind of become a piggy bank. For so many families in America and the West. We’re going to go into a deeper level at some point, all about how Hunter Biden got rich off of Ukrainian interests, oil companies and other ways that Ukraine has been a client state for the State Department and for the very same people that you’re worried that they’re teaching your child nonsense. That’s who they that’s who’s basically been trying to run Ukraine. So maybe this will mean something to you. Maybe it won’t. But what if I told you that Zelensky and the government of Ukraine, not the people of Ukraine? Have been enthusiastically supported by George Soros. What have I told you that George Soros set up a foundation in Ukraine quote before they became independent from Russia, and he continues to operate in Ukraine today? This is him in 2014, talking to Fareed Zakaria on CNN. Like 121. [00:33:18][368.6]

Clip: [00:33:19] One of the things that many people recognize about you was that you, during the revolutions of 1989, funded a lot of dissident activities civil society groups in Eastern Europe and Poland, the Czech Republic. Are you doing similar things in Ukraine? Well, I set up a foundation in Ukraine before Ukraine became independent of Russia. And the foundation has been functioning ever since and including an important part and events now, [00:33:53][33.9]

Charlie Kirk: [00:33:54] Josh Hammer writes in. He’s the head of Newsweek, editing a opinion site, and he says, quote, Ukraine is just as corrupt and just as oligarchic as Russia, if not even more so at the time of Ukraine’s 2014 color revolution itself, clandestinely abetted by liberal NGO types which deposed the pro-Russian president, Viktor Yanukovych. The nation ranked as one of the most absolute, most corrupt nations in the world. He says, quote, there are neo-Nazi paramilitary units such as the Azov Battalion active in Ukraine, Ukraine, Leste anemic Westerners forget is also the country that Hunter Biden and Burisma got rich off of. Ukrainian oligarch Victor Punic was for years a massive donor to the Clinton Foundation, and Zelensky himself, of course, was at the center of Donald Trump’s first entirely bogus impeachment. It seems there is something fundamentally rotten about modern Ukraine that no enterprising investigative journalist has yet uncovered. Wait, so there are neo-Nazi paramilitary units such as the Azov Battalion in Ukraine and Uber and Google, and every major corporation is trying to have you to send money to go to Ukraine. I’m not saying all the people of Ukraine are neo-Nazi paramilitary units, but that does exist. And the government is remarkably corrupt. So maybe the situation in Ukraine is not as simple as one jersey, we need to cheer for one jersey, not the people of Ukraine. They deserve credit and they deserve to be commended. But maybe the government of Ukraine doesn’t care at all about the people of Ukraine. Maybe the government of Ukraine has been getting rich, fat and happy, shooting theatrical and cinematography videos, all the while knowing that there might be a different game at play here. But that doesn’t stop the Western media from fawning over Zelenskyy and his government. From doing everything they possibly can to try and demonstrate that Zelensky is the hero of the woke west against the East. Discernment and prudence. Just be very careful the type of news you’re consuming in situations that could get us into a nuclear Holocaust. Thanks so much for listening, everybody. Email us your thoughts.
