Glenn: If you are looking for a shill of the Republican Party, this program is not for you

Yesterday, Glenn got into a debate with a caller from North Carolina who suggested he was “poisoning the well” by criticizing New Jersey Governor Chris Christie for his Administration’s involvement in ‘Bridgegate.’ What Judy failed to realize, however, is this scandal is just the latest strike against Christie, who has proven to be more of a progressive Republican than a conservative in the years since first winning the New Jersey governorship in 2009.

But Christie is just one of many establishment Republicans Glenn has chosen not to support, for there is little difference between a progressive Democrat and a progressive Republican. Progressivism is a disease that infects both parties, and it time to look for candidates that reflect small-government values.

On radio this morning, Glenn explained that over the course of the he has come to the decision that we no longer support Republican candidates just for the heck of it, and anyone listening to the program who is looking for a shill of the GOP should look elsewhere:

Poisoning the well for 2016? I told you last year: This is the year to decide. This is the year to decide who you are. If you are going to break again because people are going to start telling you ‘Shut up, because we have to vote for…’ Judy and anyone else who feels this way, I want you to listen carefully: This isn't the show for you.

Let me tell you what we do on this show: We tell the truth, as we know it. It's not our job to make sure the Republicans get elected at any cost. We will tell you what we truly believe. We hope, in the coming year, in a more entertaining way to make sure that you are informed and have some fun along the way. But we have never ever been and never ever will be shills for the Republican Party.

But it isn’t just Glenn who is fed up with the establishment. Conservatives in and around the media are becoming less and less willing to toe the Republican line:

Frankly, I think people like Judy are going to be absolutely shocked during the next few years because I can tell you, I am not the only one who's had it with the GOP. Sean Hannity has had it with the GOP. Mark Levin has had it with the GOP. The biggest “shill” of the GOP, as they have always liked to say, Rush Limbaugh, has had it with the GOP. We do this for a living. We've had our fill. So if you're looking for shills for a political party, you're probably going to have to shake talk radio.

Turn on any mainstream media channel and you will hear the same all old regurgitated talking points that you may or may not want to hear. Glenn explained that he will not spend his time focusing on those things:

There are plenty of people who will simply tell you what you want to hear. But on this program, on this show, we don't care about what you want to hear. We'll tell you what we think. We'll tell you what we believe and what we don't believe in the political parties…

What I've said in the past, I hate politics. I've never been interested in politics. I don't think you are either. The only reason I talk politics on the show, is because they're forcing us to talk politics on this show. I don't mean the Zionist master. What I mean is: Washington is so up in our face, in our life, we have to spend time battling them. If they would mind their own business, I wouldn't talk about a donkey or elephant for the rest of my life because I don't care. What I care about: My family, my faith, my God, my day ahead, my plans, my values.

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."
