The Truth About Saudi Arabia, 9/11 and U.S. Treasury Bonds

The Context

A bill is being considered in Congress that would allow U.S. courts to hold countries responsible for any role they may have had in 9/11. The Obama administration has lobbied Congress to block the bill's passage due to Saudi Arabia's threats to sell off $750 billion in treasury bills in an attempt to avoid their assets being frozen in the face of litigation.

Truth and Consequences

The truth often comes with unintended consequences. In the case of 9/11, is the truth important enough to brave the storm that will follow?

Monday on The Glenn Beck Program, Glenn dissected the intricacies of this delicate balance.

"All those 9/11 documents that we have had person after person who has actually seen them in Congress, in the Senate, they've actually seen the documents, they've seen the real report, they all come to us and say, ‘Saudi Arabia was involved, and people need to know it.' I think we need to know it. But you don't just say that without understanding what that means," Glenn said.

Can America Handle the Truth?

America is in debt as a nation, and debt enslaves you to a master. One of our masters is Saudi Arabia.

"The other side of the Saudi Arabian coin is they're one of our banks. People don't understand the treasury bill. The treasury bill is basically a loan. When we say we're $19 trillion in debt, what we've done is we've gone to countries who act like a bank to us," Glenn explained.

Loans aren't inherently bad, but taking money from a bad source will have bad consequences if things go sideways.

What a T-bill Dump Looks Like

What does it mean to have Saudi Arabia dump treasury bills? Glenn explained what it would look like if nations started selling off our T-bills --- and it's not pretty.

"Now we're so far in debt that nobody knows if they're going to get their money back," Glenn said. "Our oil and our gas companies and our coal companies will be darn near out of business. Many of them already are. We've had enemies now made all around the world. And our debt has more than doubled," Glenn said.

He added sarcastically, "So, who wants to be the president of the United States?"

Common Sense Bottom Line

Declassifying the redacted 9/11 commission report will consequences. If Saudi Arabia follows through with its threat, it could destabilize the American economy.

"The question is not whether or not we should allow Saudi Arabia to be held responsible in our courts. If Saudi Arabia played a role, the American people should know about it," Glenn said.

The real question is are we ready for the consequences?

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."
