What do the Ron Paul newsletters say about his leadership skills?

Congressman Ron Paul is the latest GOP candidate to take a leading role in a controversy this election season. Newsletters released throughout the 90’s included racist comments, anti-Israel comments, among other controversial statements. Before delving into the topic, Glenn jokingly pointed that “usually that causes real problems if you want to point out somebody might be racist. So let's not even go there.”

The real question we should be asking after a decade of newsletters Ron Paul ran that had many racist and anti-Israel comments is how has he responded?

Glenn: “So ten years of this kind of stuff in this and his defense is now, "I'm a bad editor. I'm just a bad managing editor. I didn't know that stuff was all in there. It shouldn't have been in there," et cetera, et cetera. Forget about whether he believes it or not. Let's take him at face value. If you can't run a newsletter, you shouldn't be given the keys to the United States of America. I run a network, I run a radio show, run a publishing division, a newsletter. What others? Stage shows, we do all the things. Believe me, if one of those divisions is racist or putting racist things in for a decade, if I don't catch it – I shouldn’t be allowed to run a shoe store.

Glenn later pointed out, “I got news for ya. If somebody writes something and prints it under my name, even if I am paying them to do it and they write that 95 to 97 or more are semi or entirely criminal? I think I try to explain that to the American people that whole ghostwriting idea.”

While Glenn still agrees with Ron Paul on the Fed, and think’s “he's the only one who believes it’s about the destruction of the currency, he's the only one who believes in, shut it all down,” the stance Paul takes on Israel, 9/11, and the his self-accountability should be a warning sign to undecided voters.

In the last hour of today’s radio show, Glenn played an audio clip of Ron Paul answering a question from a 9/11 truther.

“Why don't you come out about the truth about 9/11? “

Paul responded, “Because I can't handle the controversy.” After hearing the clip, Pat asked a question every voter on the fence with Ron Paul should ask. “Now, if you don't believe any of it, if you don't believe the 9/11 truther stuff, is that how you answer that question: I can't handle the controversy?”

If Ron Paul has been being honest about his opinions with the American people and his supporters, what could really be so controversial about saying “Al-Qaeda did it”? If he is being honest, do we really want a president who won’t stand boldly on an issue as important as the attack that killed over 3,000 innocent Americans on our own soil?

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?
