Noooo! Latest polls in South Carolina: Newt on top

America must be collectively hitting the 2012 election panic button as Newt Gingrich is surging once again in the polls. Are GOP voters so desperate for someone who can 'beat Obama' they are willing to overlook the fact they are a blatant big government progressive just to defeat him? If Newt continues to surge, apparently so.

The latest polls out of South Carolina show a slight drop off for Mitt Romney, an increase for Santorum, and an increase for Newt Gingrich, giving him the biggest lead he has had in quite some time. Why should this disturb you? Well, just remember who South Carolina gave us last election—Progressive RINO, Senator John McCain.

This is a truly incredible turn of momentum considering the news that has been surrounding Newt Gingrich lately. Not only are the mainstream media news outlets already openly collecting ammo against the former Speaker of the House from his less-than-perfect past, but his record of being a progressive is well documented. After three years hearing from Tea Partiers, speaking to conservatives, and sharing the progressive history with his audience, Glenn’s reaction to the poll numbers shouldn’t surprise you.

GLENN: America, you hire Newt Gingrich, if you run Newt Gingrich R A, you're going to lose the election. But if you if you go for Newt Gingrich and he strangely does win the election, come what may. It's on your head. It's on your head. And that's great. Maybe I'm all wrong and it's going to be sunshine and lollipops. But I'm telling you this guy is a progressive. And you remember when I will ring the bell equally on both sides. Do you remember when I told you that there's going to come a time when the progressives, somebody's going to want to grab the pendulum. Well, we have the conditions that are being sown right now. And the pendulum is going to stop, possibly stop temporarily. Like it did in the Civil War with Abraham Lincoln, where he suspends. Now, are you going to have somebody to release the pendulum? Because things in this country are getting out of control. Do you have somebody that understands the Constitution or do you have somebody that understands the progressive movement and has modeled himself after every bad progressive president we've ever had. He extolls the progressive presidents. Now, do you want a progressive that understands that the Declaration of Independence is not important and the Constitution is ever changing. Do you want a big government progressive? We already have one. Has this whole fight been a lie? Has this whole Tea Party thing been a lie? Because if you are voting for Newt Gingrich, you are voting for everything, everything that I thought you were against. I thought you wanted a man of character that was going to tell you the truth, be able to be trustworthy. I thought that's what you wanted. I thought you wanted somebody that was for small government. I thought when you were against government healthcare, you were actually against government healthcare. But maybe you just didn't like the brand that Barack Obama was giving you and so you want government healthcare from your guy. I thought you were against all of these things that he is for. I thought you understood the progressive movement if you found it evil. If the you vote for Newt Gingrich, you're a liar. To yourself. You are lying. You have lied either to me, to yourself for the last two years because there's no way, no way to justify this in your mind. No way.

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?
