Glenn unveils GBTV

On radio this morning, Glenn formally announced GBTV to his fans. The network – a live streaming video service – will be his new home once he leaves FOX News Channel at the end of the month, and

“I believe in what I tell you every day.  I believe these things.  A lot of people in the media I've discovered do not.  A lot of people in the media and politics and business, but they only care about money, they only care about power, they only care about their fame.  Capitalism is not corrupt.  Capitalism is what has saved millions and millions and lives and has freed men and women and children all over the world,” Glenn told his fans.

What prompted Glenn to shift away from traditional media to his own digital network?

“We have been asked over and over again, What are we going to do?  What -- what does this all mean?  How are we going to fix this?  I have not had the answer,” he explained. But now GBTV is the answer.

“This is not like anything else you've seen on the Internet,” he said.

The network will be the new home of Glenn’s daily show, which will expand to two hours. “It is going to launch on 9/12.  9/12/11,” he explained. “We're going to commemorate that anniversary with the launch of a new network and a new way to do things.  GBTV will be a network that has news unlike you have seen anyplace else.”

Glenn promised that the network would be targeted at people who want to actively engage in content, and promised that there was going to be new technology coming over the summer and into next year that would allow for active engagement with viewers.

“You want to be a couch potato?  Go watch a soap opera.  If you look at life as I am busy, I want the news, I want some laughs, I want a show that won't insult me, won't talk down to me, I want entertainment.”

Glenn said that because viewers would need to subscribe, much like they do HBO or Netflix, that the creative people behind the shows would not be as concerned about sponsors and interference. As a result, the shows will be unique and of a higher quality than what can be found on traditional TV networks.

“We're tired of a middleman,” Glenn explained. “This is not mass.  This is for a group of Americans that know what they believe, know where they're headed, and want to move forward and they don't want to waste their time.  That's what GBTV is.”

Glenn hinted at some future programming during the announcement as well. “ GBTV will also be part of entertainment programming that will be geared towards the youth, not all of it, some of it will be.  I can't tell you now who we're working with, but I can tell you that we are working with some of the biggest creators or biggest names of some of the biggest action programs, also some of the biggest reality programs and some of the biggest animation that have been done in the United States.”

“We're going to be doing education and we're going to be partnering with people,” as well as “doing special documentaries.”

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."
