BREAKING: Kinder, Gentler Glenn Beaten to Death by Old Glenn

Members of Congress are struggling. The Speaker of the House only makes $223,500 annually. Aside from that, there's a cap on how much they can spend on personnel and office expenses --- just $3 million to $5 million.

"Well, Staples and Office Max, the prices have gone up several percentages," Co-host Stu Burguiere clarified.

Tuesday on radio, Glenn read a list of the outrageous benefits and perks available exclusively to our lawmakers.

Along with money toward living expenses and travel expenses, they also receive a tax break of $10,000 toward health care.

“A supermarket of 300 private health plans,” Glenn said, describing health care options available to government employees from 1959 to 2014.

In addition to private gyms, tennis courts, salons and barbershops, members also get airline privileges, retirement benefits, investment breaks and death benefits. Members who die while in office receive a full year’s salary --- ranging anywhere from $174K to $223K while deceased military personnel receive only $100K.

“It is grotesque,” Glenn said.

"I'm glad we're talking about health care today because I'm concerned about the coma that the kinder, gentler Glenn Beck is in right now," Stu noted.

Glenn shared some insight on what may have happened after hearing the senate would vote again on Obamacare.

"He was beaten to death last night," Glenn said. "Yeah, by the old Glenn. He was beaten to death."

GLENN: So Sessions may be out today. Unprecedented. Rex Tillerson is now making waves that he -- if sessions goes, he may go. He thinks it's unprofessional what's going on here.

The senate is voting on a bill they don't really know what's in the bill. This is chaos.

PAT: Well, you have to pass the bill to find out what's in it. I mean, we found that out.

GLENN: Maybe we don't pay our senators enough. Maybe $174,000 a year is just not enough money for them to actually care. You know, the speaker of the house only.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Is struggling on $223,000.

PAT: Oh, no. Don't say that.

GLENN: Yeah. I don't know how they do that.

PAT: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: I don't know how they do that.

PAT: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: They also get --

PAT: Can we take up, like, a fund me page of some sort.

GLENN: A GoFundMe page, yeah.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Well, they're allowed to deduct living expenses, so let's help do on their health care. They get $3,000 in living expenses that they can deduct. Also, they get a tax break of $10,000 on their health care, which is very nice.

PAT: Is that enough, though? Is that enough?

GLENN: Well, I'm not really sure. I mean, the health plan that they're on did start in 1959, and it was, you know, to cover everybody, you know, the civil workers, the post office, the important people, members of Congress. It wasn't a single plan. It was a supermarket of 300 private health plans.

JEFFY: Huh.

GLENN: Which is really nice. It's really nice. But then they got to have their own "shop" exchange, and they can do that with, you know, the $10,000 that the -- that everybody gets, of course.

PAT: And then. And then Jason Chaffetz has the nerve to say that they need, was it $2,500, $3,500 for a second residence in Washington, D.C., for all of them.

GLENN: Well, the Senators also have a personal and office expense account of $3 to $5 million each.

JEFFY: You can't run --

PAT: That's not every month.

GLENN: That's a year.

STU: Well, Staples and Office Max, the prices have gone up several percents.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Uh-huh. And the physical office space is a nightmare. It's -- yes, it is in the most important building in the country, and you -- but you only have between five and 8,200 square feet.

STU: But five square feet is really small. And people don't realize that. 8,200 is okay but five?

PAT: It's 5,000.

GLENN: If you have five.

STU: Oh.

GLENN: If you have 8,000 square feet, they expect you to furnish that with only $40,000 with taxpayer money.

STU: What?

GLENN: All of it over $5,000, I think you can get -- what is it? A couple thousand dollars more for every --

JEFFY: Oh, good.

GLENN: 200 square feet, I think.

STU: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: So I don't know how they do it. But they --

PAT: Can you imagine decorating a room with only $40,000?

GLENN: Imagine that?

PAT: I just.

JEFFY: No.

PAT: You can't do that.

GLENN: Right. And they also receive $250,000 budget for travel and office expenses.

STU: Well, yeah.

GLENN: So they can -- you know, they can do that, and their employees are all making $172,000 to $168,000. Plus they get the taxpayer funded members only gym, so they don't have to worry about the riffraff. And then they also have the members only salon where they can get their, you know, hair done and a barbershop too.

STU: Yeah, everyone has to have a haircut.

GLENN: The members only tennis court. Oh, and the airline privileges, which are really nice. They can book any flight -- they can book every flight that they wanted and then just cancel last minute, no penalties. And so they generally book several flights because they're never really sure when they're going to be able to get out of there, and you don't want to have them worry about that. So then they can just drive to Washington National where they get to park their car for free, which is $740,000 in foregone revenue for Reagan National. They just park their car there.

STU: They just eat that, probably.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. The taxpayers can eat that. It's no big deal.

STU: Yeah, we've got that for you guys. No problem.

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah.

PAT: Well, because of the hard work that they're doing for us. You don't mind doing that, right?

GLENN: Amen, brother.

PAT: We don't need all of those expenses.

GLENN: You've worked hard your whole life, so you've put into social security, and you get $15,000 a year. The public workers pension, you get $26,000 a year on top of your 15,000.

STU: Well, yeah.

GLENN: If you're a public servant, you get that. And of course if you're a member of congress, you get $59,000 of pension for the rest of your life. On top of the . . .

JEFFY: Plus.

GLENN: Yeah. And of course you can do all of the insider trading that you did and everything else.

STU: I'm still stuck of the fact that they're honoring the memory of Ronald Reagan by giving away $700,000 of parking spots. That's an -- and free flights.

PAT: Yeah, but they're only making $174,000 a year.

GLENN: Well, if they ever die while they're in office, they get one year full salary of $174,000. However, if one of our soldiers die, they're capped at $100,000. They can't get more than $100,000.

STU: Well, who's doing more important work.

GLENN: Amen, brother. Who's working harder for the American people?

STU: And I think you can definitely say our senators and congressmen.

GLENN: Right. I think so.

STU: When you put them side by side, it's pretty obvious.

GLENN: It's grotesque. It is grotesque what is happening right now. I can't --

STU: I'm glad we're talking about health care today because I'm concerned about the coma that the kinder, gentler Glenn Beck is in right now. It seems to be --

GLENN: He was beaten to death last night.

STU: It's terrible.

GLENN: Yeah, by the old Glenn. He was beaten to death.

PAT: It does get frustrating sometimes. There are going to be days like this; right?

GLENN: Yeah, there are. Everybody --

PAT: It's too agonizing.

GLENN: It's too outrageous.

PAT: It is.

GLENN: I literally could not come up with appropriate words. I cannot come up with appropriate words. I just can't on how obscene and grotesque all of this is. And we're taking it.

PAT: Yeah. I mean --

JEFFY: We sure are.

PAT: We look with disgust on Rome and the way the senate -- the way the Roman senators acted and conducted themselves. And the outrage and the eating vomittoriums and all of that kind of --

STU: That's a move toward respectability at this point.

PAT: It is. It is. If they were just puking after every meal so that they could eat more, I would like that better.

STU: That's not bad.

PAT: So what. Go ahead. So you have bulimia, whatever.

GLENN: What I know it is making --

PAT: Stop raping the American people.

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?

Bill O'Reilly joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday to discuss a recent House Homeland Security Committee briefing on the impact of the 9/11 terror attacks, during which "national security experts" claimed "right-wing" groups pose a greater threat to the United States than groups like the Taliban or Al-Qaeda.

Glenn played two video clips from the briefing that showed Senior Fellow Brookings Institute Center for Middle East Policy, Daniel Byman, and former National Intelligence Council Chair during the Obama administration, Christopher Kojm, in apparent agreement that "right-wing extremists" are a bigger threat to Americans today than "jihadists."

"I'm someone who has written extensively on both jihadist groups, but also right-wing, white supremacist groups," Byman says in the first video clip. "And in my mind, there's no question that today in the United States, the right-wing and white supremacist violence is a much greater risk."

"I agree with your assessment and those of my colleagues who have spoken already, there's little doubt that the domestic terrorist threat from white nationalists and right-wing extremist groups is greater than the jihadist threat today," Kojm states in the second clip.

"Who are those idiots?" O'Reilly exclaimed. "It's just unbelievable ... they're not even in the same universe. Yeah, there are bad neo-Nazi Americans running around, yeah, but there are very few of them. I mean, the jihadists are causing death and destruction, death and destruction all over the world. Not just in the United States. These people are so blatantly irresponsible and ignorant, it's just staggering."
