Glenn reviews "The Imitation Game" starring Benedict Cumberbatch

Over the weekend, Glenn and Tania got to watch one of the holiday seasons most anticipated new films - 'The Imitation Game'. The story centers around Alan Turning, a forgotten hero of World War 2 who helped cracked a secret Nazi code and whose work with computers helped lay the foundation for computer science and artificial intelligence. What did Glenn think of the film? Spoiler alert: he LOVED it. On radio this morning, Glenn reviewed the film and revealed how a tribute to the film's protagonist can be found in something you probably see everyday.

Below is Glenn's review from Facebook this morning:

The Imitation Game

Few stories are as inspiring and embarrassing as the story of Alan Turning. His is a name that effects all of us yet, no one knows it. A salute to him, some say, is hidden in plain sight in one of the worlds most popular logos. Once you know his story, you will never forget it and when you know two simple facts left out by the film you will forever be eager to tell his story.

What we chose to tell in a short chapter in the book Dreamers and Deceivers was only hinted at in the films epilogue. But what we did both tell is the story of the man who could see and do the impossible: build the worlds first computer. But the film told the dark side of the way we paid him back.

I will not to spoil the mystery of the film as my wife enjoyed trying to figure out the mystery element of this movie, but let's leave it at we have come a long way. I do not believe in social justice or any earthy justice as I believe man is too flawed to count on real justice in all cases. But it is always refreshing to see justice served as it has been in this case. What makes it even sweeter is the lack of guile, anger or judgement on him or the greatest generation. It just is and the viewer is left on his own to celebrate how far we have come.

I choose to view Alan's story as a victory that men, at some point, do get it right and congratulate the Weinstein group, producers, directors an writers for setting the record straight and putting this mans story where it belongs.

It is well written, well acted and the story allows the viewer to unwrap the story at their own pace just like all great Christmas gifts. Make no mistake, for history lovers or just those who love great movies this is just that- a gift.

Next, let's correct history on Tesla.

A must see. Opens this week.

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?
