CNN host admits he advises Obama

Is it weird that a CNN host serves as an advisor to President Obama? The same reporter who seems to attack Glenn on a fairly regular basis? Glenn and the radio guys sure though Fareed Zakaria’s close relationship to the White House was a little odd for the supposedly unbiased reporter.

“Well, it is good to see that CNN keeps their standards so very, very high that they have a guy who is doing a news show that is an advisor for the president,” Glenn said.

“Is somebody in the media going to ask that question to Jay Carney today, let's see how he stumbles through that answer? I'd like to know because, you know, I don't know. Seems like they are constantly criticizing, you know, everyone else about their standards,” Stu said.

On his CNN program, Eliot Spitzer asked Fareed, “Look, I read something in the paper this week a couple of days ago that made me bring a smile to my face. It said the president of the United States calls you for wisdom and advice about issues around the world. So first when he calls you, what does he say, hi, Barack, you're calling for Fareed? What does he do?”

“Mostly it's been face‑to‑face meetings. You know, it's usually organized by Tom Donilon, the National Security Advisor. What I'm struck by, though, honestly, Elliott, is how much time he's spending thinking about the issues of the Arab strain, particularly the issues of Egypt, how to make it go right, what are the mechanisms that the United States has to help the moderates and liberals. It's been a very thoughtful conversation. You know, we'll see where it goes,” Zakaria answered.

“Shouldn't we know if a reporter or a show host, a talk show host is giving advice to the president of the United States, shouldn't we know what those conversations were so when we hear it spill out of his mouth, we know if it's propaganda, to forward the presidential objectives?” Glenn asked.

“You would think CNN's standards would be that this guy would no longer be employed as of right now. But those aren't CNN standards because the guy's trying to pawn himself off as a newsman,” Pat said.

“I mean, you could have Fareed on but he could say, I cannot talk to you about these issues. Or, he has to say, look, I spoke to the president on these issues and here's what the president is thinking and this is why, et cetera, et cetera. But then it's literally an arm of the Obama administration. But at least it's out in the open. But you would have to draw a line. You'd have to say, I recuse myself because I have inside information. Do you not?” Glenn said.

Glenn pointed out that his show and Zakaria’s show are both opinion show, and its not unusual for hosts of an opinion show to come with a bias. But there is a big difference between Zakaria and Glenn.

Glenn said, “I don't have a problem with him doing that, or CNN running that. But where we split is I'm not an adviser for the president of the United States. I'm not an advisor.”

“You can't be advising the president on what the president should be doing in the Middle East and having those secret conversations and then go on the air and say, let me tell you what I think we should do in the Middle East; let me tell you what I think which story is really important. Because you don't know if he is furthering the president or the administration's wishes or not.”

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?
