Apple Does the Right Thing for America's Security

This is insanity. Tim Cook is right! I know this is not widely understood by the mainstream but we must have a reasonable and long debate on this abuse of power by the federal government.

There are several arguments against this. But the two main arguments are based on the constitution and actual security.

Apple should NOT hack in or develop a back door or key as it will put ALL iPhones at risk.

If they make a back door it is only a matter of time before the "bad guys" get it.

I also do not believe the "bad guys" will always only be outside of our government. Our founders had a healthy fear of abusive government. We need to have some of that.

The government CANNOT bully private companies.

On an unrelated topic, I have heard one candidate on the right this last week saying he would fine companies and "punish them" if they wish to move overseas. The masses yawned. Do you not see the gathering of abusive power? We must draw the line!

Private companies should do the right thing for our country and security. I, as an entrepreneur and owner of a next-gen media company, want to help my country. But only in the limits of the constitution. Anything outside of that scope actually does harm to our nation and security.

This is an example of Apple doing the right thing for America and our security.

No matter how many bills or laws are created that have "USA," "patriot" or "we love America more than you" in the title, we are no longer blindly following reckless and foolish politicians who don't know the first thing about security, high tech or, frankly, the constitution.

We have given up far more liberty than we ever should have. Do you feel one bit safer today than in 2001? I don't.

The Fourth Amendment means something.

So does Apple encryption.

It must remain forever locked, without back doors and our security from all threats foreign and domestic.

As you know, Apple is no fan of mine. But I am a fan of their product. That, however is no reason to be for or against what is clearly right thinking on the part of Apple.

We must not trade our liberty for a false sense of security.

I stand with Apple and I encourage you to do the same. Do your own homework and spread the word.

I believe Apple is on the right side of history on this issue. Where do you stand? Take the poll below:

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?
