New Book Claims to Chronicle Trump’s Ties to Russia in Bombshell Exposé

What’s on your holiday reading list?

Glenn read three A.G. Riddle novels over the Thanksgiving holiday: the sci-fi thrillers “Pandemic,” “Genome” and “The Atlantis Gene.”

“What you really need is some dark technology stuff because you just don’t go down that road naturally so you need a little push,” Stu joked on today’s show.

“He was pushing all my buttons,” Glenn said. “I mean, I was awake till 3 o’clock in the morning.”

Listen to the full clip (above) to find out what “compelling” book made Glenn stop halfway through so he could do some more research on what purports to be a bombshell political exposé about the 2016 election.

GLENN: So I read -- I read a series of books. I read his book Pandemic and then Genome.

STU: Novels?

GLENN: Yeah, and then The Atlantis Gene. I just -- I fell in love with his premise. And it's kind of technology and evolution.

STU: Yeah. What you really need is some dark technology stuff. Because you just don't go down that road naturally.

GLENN: Naturally.

STU: So you need a little push.

GLENN: No, he played into it. No, he was pushing all my buttons. I mean, I was awake until 3 o'clock in the morning. I mean, I read three novels in a week.

But I also read about half of the book Collusion by Luke Harding. And I stopped. Because I thought, I need Stu to read this. Because I need you to really -- I want to get your perspective before I go down this road. Because this was written by a guy who was -- I think he was the Asian and Russian desk at the Guardian. And has some really incredible sources. And he's put a new spin on -- on the whole Russian interference and the role that Flynn and others played, knowingly. Some pretty dark stuff there.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Before I go down this road anymore, I just -- I want to go down with -- I want to go down with some friends here looking for red flags on this. We have to really vet it really well. Because it's a pretty compelling book.

STU: It seems that one of the charges here, just scanning here, is that they actually think that Russia helped Trump win. Which, I just dismiss out of hand. I don't know.

GLENN: Okay. So no. I think that's -- I think that's hyperbole.

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: They agree, at least this is the impression I have in the parts that I've read, that they just want chaos. They just want -- if Russia wins, they just want chaos. So they're doing everything they can to create chaos. And to create a distrust of the system by Americans. Okay?

So they win either way. But they make a pretty compelling case on how long they've been trying to get to Donald Trump and -- and -- and they did get to the people all around him. And I haven't -- I haven't gotten much further into it than that. Because there's just so much that I need to check all the footnotes on. And make sure that it's not some hack job on this.

STU: Yeah. I think it's -- if nothing else, you want to know what the charges are. What's going to be brought up.

GLENN: Yeah. I think this is the worst that anybody has brought up so far. You know, this is -- this is what they're looking for. And this book claims to have a lot of the stuff. And if you really -- and I don't want to get into a situation to where I'm arguing something, and I haven't read the other side. You know what I mean? If the charges are there, we need to know it.

It's kind of like when we first -- when Al Gore's movie first came out. And I went to it. And Stu went, oh, no. This could be really bad. Because I left there saying to Stu, I want to investigate, turn over every stone. He makes a compelling case.

If you don't know the facts. So let's turn over every stone. And you should do that with this book called Collusion. Turn over every stone. But we need to know the argument. Because it's pretty damning.

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."
