Which foreign countries do Americans view most favorable?

On Tuesday, Gallup released the results of its 2014 World Affairs poll, which ranks Americans’ overall opinion of 22 foreign countries that are pre-selected by Gallup. Canada came out on top for the second year in a row, while North Korea brings up the rear with just 11% of respondents having a favorable view of the country.

Gallup reports:

North Korea took over the bottom spot from Iran, whose rating rose from 9% to 12% this year. North Korea's favorability has not exceeded 15% since 2002, consistently making it one of the lowest rated. But this is the first time since 2004 that it has been alone in last place.

The current data come from the 2014 update of Gallup's annual World Affairs survey, conducted Feb. 6-9. The poll was conducted shortly before the United Nations announced the results of a yearlong study concluding that North Korea has committed crimes against humanity, which could lead to the arrest of the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, as well as drive Americans' perceptions of the country even lower. Americans' opinions of the country fell sharply in 2002, when President George W. Bush labeled the country a member of the "axis of evil" in his State of the Union Address, and have not recovered.

On the flipside, Canada enjoys a 93% favorability rating. Great Britain, Germany, Japan, and France round out the top five. On radio this morning, Pat and Stu challenged Glenn to figure out what countries made the list.

“A Gallup poll came out of what countries… we have the most favorable opinion of,” Pat said.

“Let's see if I can name the top 10… I need a map so I don't forget anything,” Glenn responded. “I would say Canada would be number one. Got to be number one or England.”

While Israel comes in at number seven on the list with a 72% rating, the Palestinian Authority is 15th with a 19% approval.

“Have you been to the Palestinian authority,” Stu asked. “Interestingly enough, not a country. The Palestinian Authority is not a country yet listed under America's perception of foreign countries.”

Rounding out the bottom of the list is Libya, followed by Pakistan, Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, and North Korea at the bottom.

“Iran climbed out of the basement,” Stu explained. “They were only 9% positive. They're up three points to be 12%. North Korea went from 12 down to 11. Syria fell a point from 14 to 13.”

“Just a point,” Pat asked. “I mean because, thank you very much, [they] only killed, what, 150,000 of their citizens.”

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?
