Glenn unloads on Boehner; should be 'ashamed of himself'

On radio this morning, Glenn interviewed freshman Congressman Joe Walsh. The revealing conversation led to Glenn sending some harsh words towards Speaker Boehner.

Glenn welcomed Walsh to show, and invited him to tell the audience a story that Glenn knew about but hadn’t really addressed on radio. Apparently, a group of Congressmen wanted to come over for the Restoring Courage event and to meet with Israeli officials, but they ended up being rejected by the House ethics committee.

“The International Israel Allied Caucus Foundation, a group was going to, you know, sponsor this fact finding mission, was going to come over for two or three days, engage in some very interesting meetings with some Israeli officials, join you at your two very important events promoting, you know, an undivided Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel and lo and behold, ethics yesterday said -- did not approve this,” Walsh said.

“They said your portion of the fact finding mission had the appearance of a political event, they told me. They said there wasn't enough meeting time built into the schedule and they identified the Israeli Allied Caucus Foundation as a lobbying group currently lobbying Congress on legislation when, in fact, they're a 501(c)3 charity.

“it's terribly disappointing because I would have given anything to have, as a member of Congress, been there with you and seen firsthand what needs to be done to promote this issue of eventually, as quickly as we can, making Jerusalem the undivided capital of Israel,” Walsh added.

Glenn said that he had heard Boehner’s office was not approving many Congressmen to come over, and those that were coming were funding the trip themselves.

“Glenn, I'm with you. I don't, either. To me it purely is an additional way to go over there and do some fact finding and learn. That's what we as members of Congress do but for some reason they shied away from what you are doing over there,” Walsh said.

When Glenna and Walsh ended their conversation, Glenn turned his attention to Speaker Boehner.

“This has been going on now for a couple of weeks and I haven't said anything because I wanted it to play out in the system, but Speaker Boehner, you should be ashamed of yourself. The Republican party should be ashamed of themselves. They don't have to attend my event. Let them come to our biggest ally and the only friend we still have in the Middle East in their hour of need. They don't have to attend my event,” Glenn said.

“There are so many people good people that are in the Republican party trying to fight for common sense values, trying to hold some semblance of the line of America, trying to hold together what little credibility we have overseas, but the Republicans would much rather punish ‘bad Republicans’.”

“You politicians in Washington sicken me. The American people are done with the games. We would sure like your help in fixing the country, but if you're going to continue to play games, you're meaningless, you're meaningless. The American people will fix it,” Glenn 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."
