Glenn interviews Herman Cain

Herman Cain has been a growing Tea Party favorite over the past few weeks, and Glenn had Cain n radio this morning and asked him some surprisingly tough questions. What does Glenn think of Herman Cain for President?

Glenn explained that he first saw Herman Cain long before he had indicated intentions to run for President. “I was in Chicago to give a speech and a guy walked on stage that I think somebody said to me, oh, this is the Godfather's pizza guy.  You should see him.  Oh, the Godfather pizza guy, okay.  I don't think I ever said this watching anybody ever before.  I said to one of the guys with me, I said could you please ask if I could meet him?”

“You might want to consider it here for a second.  Herman, when we talk about you and I have told this story about, you know, first time I saw you and I think you're great and I see you from time to time on the news and I think you're great.  I will tell you that there are three things that the listeners have brought up.  One of them Pat brought up, that I have questions on and you're not entering a hostile room, but I am going to ask you tough questions,” Glenn warned.

Glenn first asked Cain about his background as a Fed Chairman.

“I was Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.  As you know, there are twelve banks and they have their citizens board, and I got elected to the Fed Chairmanship for the Federal Reserve Kansas City Bank back in the mid-'90s.  It might have been 1995-'96.  This is when Alan Greenspan was the Chairman of the Federal Reserve and the governors out of Washington, D.C,” Cain said.

“Yes, I was proud of the work of serving on that board for the following reasons.  That Federal Reserve didn't do any of the stuff that this Federal Reserve is doing.  Secondly, Alan Greenspan never allowed the fed to become politicized, and the other difference between today and then is that we didn't have this $14 trillion debt to deal with and as a result, they didn't have to deflate or inflate our currency the way this Federal Reserve board is doing it.  So yes, I did serve on the board.”

Glenn then asked if Cain was for or against auditing the Fed. Cain said that while he was not opposed to the idea, he would not champion the cause because “I don't believe they're going to find anything”.

Glenn Herman Cain also addressed the fair tax and the IRS.

“I'm not going to try to get the fair tax passed immediately.  I want to do those other points that I indicated because we need an immediate boost to this economy.  But during that first couple of years, I will be educating and informing the public so they understand it and if they understand it, then we'll have the public support we need in order to pass the fair tax which would also then abolish the IRS,” Cain told Glenn.

“Herman, you are a supporter of Israel as I am.  Why?” Glenna asked.

“The reason is, number one, they have been a staunch ally of ours in that part of the world.  Secondly, they have survived being surrounded by so many its enemies and then thirdly, because of the Biblical significance of the state of Israel, but primarily because they have simply been a great ally to the United States of America and I believe in-- I don't believe in damaging that relationship whatsoever.  I believe in even strengthening that relationship.  That's why I feel that way.”

“Look at it this way, the majority of Americans support Israel.  What this President is doing, quite frankly, is not only opposite of what the majority of the American people feel, it's also very confusing,” Cain said.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

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."
