GLENN: Senator Jim DeMint, one of the good guys in Washington. He wrote an op ed piece for the Washington Times. The White House Land Grab. Jim, can you explain this real quick?

SENATOR DeMINT: Yes, I can. While the president has us looking at the healthcare issue, he's doing a lot of things with his agencies that are very disturbing, regulating the net, the EPA is expanding its control on businesses, and it appears from the elite letter from the interior department that they are looking at over 10 million acres in Western states to take control of and under some environmental rule and stop the mining, stop the energy development, forestry, ranching, which is just a big land grab. So it's another example of the administration just reaching out trying to control more and more of our country. And so we're just trying to expose it so hopefully they know if they really do it that Americans won't be in the dark about it.

GLENN: What do you think about Utah going for eminent domain? Because the United States government has grabbed 60% of all land in Utah.

SENATOR DeMINT: Right.

GLENN: 60.

SENATOR DeMINT: And the tax revenues, the local property taxes, business revenues and things that pay for schools and roads in a lot of local communities completely dries up when we do that. And I think if states don't push back and start filing suit and taking things to the Supreme Court, the federal government's going to continue just to run roughshod over the rights of Americans. So we really need states to stand up and push back.

GLENN: I would love to have you and maybe the governor of Utah. What is his name? Herbert, right? Do you remember, Pat? He's I've met him a couple of times.

PAT: I have, too, nice man. Good guy.

GLENN: Really, really nice guy. I think he's an honest guy.

PAT: He is pretty conservative, too.

GLENN: He is. I think he gets it. Not going to be pushed around. But I'd love to have you and this document and maybe the governor on, you know, in my studio in Washington. Maybe spending an hour on the rights of the states with the land.

SENATOR DeMINT: Right.

GLENN: It's staggering what they are doing.

SENATOR DeMINT: Well, the federal government owns nearly a third of the land mass in this country today and when they take all of that off line as far as energy development, mining, forestry, ranching, even recreation.

GLENN: Do you remember when they went and they grabbed the land for the wild horses? Do you remember that?

SENATOR DeMINT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: Okay. Do you know? I don't know if you know this. We did a research project and we overlay the wild horse property with the shale property. It's amazing how they line up.

SENATOR DeMINT: It is. And this is really the radical environmental lawyers who are trying to get in the mix here. It's not about the environment and the, all of the species they named in this letter are not endangered, just lizards and range chickens and things. They are not being hurt by current development so what's going to happen if we don't bring these kind of things to the attention of the people is the president will just show up someday in Utah or Colorado and sign this thing and suddenly 10 million acres are in the control of the federal government.

GLENN: Yeah. But no, but the chickens will be free to roam around.

SENATOR DeMINT: They might not have as much to eat if people aren't

GLENN: Believe me, they will be eating us soon. Senator Jim DeMint, you keep it up.

SENATOR DeMINT: Thanks, Glenn, thanks for what you do.

GLENN: You bet, bye bye. Jim DeMint, one of the good guys. I think there's a difference between him and Nancy Pelosi.

PAT: What about Harry Reid? There's no difference between Jim DeMint and Harry Reid. There's no difference between Jim DeMint and John Kerry.

STU: I couldn't detect anything, except for the slide backs, you couldn't tell the difference between Kerry and him.

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?
