GLENN: I want to talk to George, would you say you are my most liberal friend? I mean, you don't know all my friends but you are so liberal.

LANGE: Ah.

GLENN: George Lange is one of the most decent men I know. He is I mean, he is a guy who came over to my house one time because he was going to take some pictures of me underwater in a suit and he came and he said, you'll be proud of me. I got a red, white and blue swimsuit. And I looked at it and I said, that's the Cuban flag, you communist! And it really was. And he was like, oh, wow, it is. I thought it was American. Anyway, and George, when I first met him, he refused to take pictures of George W. Bush because he told me and he didn't know who I was at the time. He said, I couldn't do him justice because I don't like him. And he said, you don't, you don't take a job unless you can do the right thing and take an honorable picture of somebody and something that would reflect them, and I was afraid that my view would be what was reflected in those pictures. And I looked at him and he didn't know that I was conservative at the time and I shook do you remember this, George?

LANGE: Sure.

GLENN: And I shook his hand and I said, you are an honorable man. And we have been friends ever since, and he's the only guy that does photos of me if I can, if I can ever help it. Because he's a decent human being and a world class photographer. He is the Annie Leibovitz of our day who's not going to go broke.

LANGE: Hopefully.

GLENN: Anyway, so George, I hired George to go down to 8/28 and take pictures really of my family because I really wanted things documented for my family and I was going to do a family album. And then the more we talked about it, he was like, well, you know, we should have a couple more photographers and take pictures of the crowd and take pictures of the event and everything else. And so we did and now I think, George, you have 8,000 photos?

LANGE: Right, right.

GLENN: So we have 8,000 photos of 8/28, and we started looking through them and decided that this has to be a picture book because it's remarkable the photos that George has taken of the crowds and the lines and the people and the children. And the event and the behind the scenes stuff, George, is just incredible. Just incredible.

So can you tell me a little bit about what you're looking for because we want to add some things to this book.

LANGE: Basically the story that I was photographing was on your side of the barricades. It was your experience, what it was like looking out. And one of the most memorable moments of the event is when we all came from behind the curtain and looked out at the crowd and realized what was going on and that feeling, I mean, all of us burst into tears, you know, each person from that was working with you when they looked out, the power of what was going on out in the audience, I really want to be a big part of the book and the most important part of the book. And we're really trying to get the experience that people had when they were planning for the event, when they were packing it home, packing up their cars, getting to the buses, the experience on the bus, getting to the capital. And then all the things that happened at the capital, there have been all these stories about random acts of kindness, people reaching out to other people that didn't have hotel rooms, people that needed their place saved in line, people having tickets to things and sharing tickets, all of those experiences we want to capture in pictures and we're hoping to have them sent in, along with people's stories.

GLENN: Right. We don't have and, you know, George and I laughed about it yesterday. I guess we should have thought this one through. We don't have pictures of people in the middle of the night, you know, sleeping out or in the middle of the night in their hotel room, you know, sharing, you know, the floor of a hotel room because it was the only one they could find. We don't have people, pictures of their families on buses, et cetera, et cetera. So where do people send these, George?

LANGE: I don't have the address.

GLENN: You don't have the address? Oh, here it is. Upload your photos at GlennBeck.com/828photos. GlennBeck.com/828photos. And we're looking again, pictures after the event, pictures from the days leading up to the event.

LANGE: Pictures of families.

GLENN: Pictures of families, pictures of the garbage carefully placed around the garbage cans, packing your cars, if you have it. Pictures of people on the trains and the planes and the automobiles. People walking in these giant crowds blocks and blocks away from the event. Any kind of pictures that you have like that.

LANGE: The subway.

GLENN: You know, the subway lines we were told were two football fields we were told this by the transit authority two football fields long. Does anybody have a picture of that?

LANGE: Right.

GLENN: Please send them to us. Now

LANGE: We have most of what was going on the stage covered pretty well, although we're interested in seeing if there's some interesting pictures of that. What we're looking for is how people were interacting, the people they were next to, the people they were meeting and, you know, the

GLENN: Experience of getting there.

LANGE: Things they were taking away.

GLENN: Yeah. Also we want to hear about your shared experiences. If you ever stories send those to serve@GlennBeck.com. That's serve@GlennBeck.com. The uploaded photos at GlennBeck.com/828photos. And if you want to order this book, it is going to be a really beautiful coffee table book of the photos and the memories. I'm also going to have journal entries in there. It will outline the, you know, the 40 Days and 40 Nights plan in there. It will have behind the scenes are we going to put things in, George, some of those photos of my family and me and the children and everything else?

LANGE: Those are just so amazing.

GLENN: We've never I don't publish photos of my children, but George actually snapped some of the most amazing real intimate scenes with me and my family and my children leading up to it and he happened to capture them in a way where you can't see their faces which, you know, for obviously security reasons. But I want to include them because this is really about family. I'm going to show you some pictures tonight on television because I'm outlining another part of this plan unrelated to the book and I'm going to show you some pictures tonight of families that went to 8/28 that are stunning, just says everything that you need to know about what this is really all about. So if you want to preorder the book, you can do that now at GlennBeck.com. Is it going to be on Amazon? No? Don't know? Okay. So is it Glenn Beck

LANGE: Glenn, one technical thing. If you're uploading pictures, upload the highest res that you have. And also understand that if you are uploading them that we have the rights to use them in the book.

GLENN: Jeez. What a Nazi this guy is. All right. George Lange, thank you very much, sir.

LANGE: Thanks, Glenn.

GLENN: God bless you, bye bye.

LANGE: Take care.

'The Handmaid's Tale' got it right, just with the wrong religion

Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images

Just in case The Handmaid's Tale's heavy-handed message wasn't already heavy-handed enough, a recent episode made it clear there's always room for further hysteria. Particularly, in relation to depictions of a “patriarchal society" run by Christian doctrine and determined by men — oh those dastardly men.

RELATED: Christian privilege is the new white privilege

The show appropriates Margaret Atwood of the same name, depicting a totalitarian society led by Christian doctrine in which women's bodies are controlled, and they have no rights. The story sounds familiar, but not in the same way Atwood and the show's creators have so smugly assumed.

Just as tone-deaf as 4th wave feminism itself, and tone-deaf in all the exact same places. Most notably, the show's heavy-handed indignation toward Christianity. Toward the patriarchy. Toward conservatives and traditional values. And just like 4th wave feminism, the show completely overlooks the irony at play. Because there is a part of the world where women and children are being raped and mutilated. In fact, in this very real place, the women or girls are often imprisoned, even executed, for being raped, and they are mutilated in unspeakable ways.

Theirs is a cruel, bloody, colorless life.

There is a place, a very real place, where women are forced to cover their entire bodies with giant tarp-like blankets, which is all the more brutal given the endless heat of this place. There is a place where women literally have one-third of the rights of men, a place where women are legally, socially and culturally worth less than men.

They cannot drive cars. They cannot be outside alone. They cannot divorce, they cannot even choose who they marry and often, they are forcibly married at a young age.

They are raped. A lot. Theirs is a cruel, bloody, colorless life. This is the life of tens, perhaps hundreds of millions of women. And, I'll tell you, their religion isn't Christianity.

Science did it again. It only took 270 million years, but this week, scientists finally solved the mystery that has kept the world up at night. We finally know where octopuses come from: outer space. That explains why they look like the aliens in just about every alien movie ever made.

RELATED: Changes in technology can be cause for concern, but THIS is amazing

It turns out octopuses were aliens that evolved on another planet. Scientists haven't determined which one yet, but they've definitely narrowed it down to one of the planets in one of the galaxies. Hundreds of millions of years ago (give or take a hundred), these evolved octopus aliens arrived on Earth in the form of cryopreserved eggs. Now, this part is just speculation, but it's possible their alien planet was on the verge of destruction, so Mom and Dad Octopus self-sacrificially placed Junior in one of these cryopreserved eggs and blasted him off the planet to save their kind.

This alien-octopus research, co-authored by a group of 33 scientists, was published in the Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology journal. I'm sure you keep that on your nightstand like I do.

Anyway, these scientists say octopuses evolved very rapidly over 270 million years. Which sounds slow, but in evolutionary terms, 270 million years is like light speed. And the only explanation for their breakneck evolution is that they're aliens. The report says, “The genome of the Octopus shows a staggering level of complexity with 33,000 protein-coding genes — more than is present in Homo sapiens."

Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

They mention that the octopus' large brain, sophisticated nervous system, camera-like eyes, flexible bodies and ability to change color and shape all point to its alien nature. Octopuses developed those capabilities rather suddenly in evolution, whereas we're still trying to figure out the TV remote.

These biological enhancements are so far ahead of regular evolution that the octopuses must have either time-traveled from the future, or “more realistically" according to scientists, crash-landed on earth in those cryopreserved egg thingies. The report says the eggs arrived here in “icy bolides." I had to look up what a “bolide" is, and turns out it's a fancy word for a meteor.

So, to recap: a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, an alien race of octopuses packed their sperm-bank samples in some meteors and shot them toward Earth. Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

President Trump's approval rating is rising, and Democrats — hilariously — can't seem to figure out what's going on. A few months ago Democrats enjoyed a sixteen point lead over Republicans, but now — according to CNN's recent national survey — that lead is down to just THREE points. National data from Reuters shows it as being even worse.

The Democratic advantage moving towards the halfway mark into 2018 shows that Republicans are only ONE point behind. The president's public approval rating is rising, and Democrats are nervously looking at each other like… “umm guys, what are we doing wrong here?"

I'm going to give Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi a little hint. We know that the Left has enjoyed a “special relationship" with the media, but they might want to have a sit down with their propaganda machine. The mainstream media is completely out of control, and Americans are sick of it. We're DONE with the media.

RELATED: The mainstream media wants you to believe Trump is waging war on immigrants — here's the truth

Look what has been going on just this week. The president called MS-13 gang members animals, but that's not the story the media jumped on. They thought it was more clickable to say that Trump was calling all immigrants animals instead. In the Middle East, the media rushed to vilify Israel instead of Hamas. They chose to defend a terror organization rather than one of our oldest allies.

Think about that. The media is so anti-Trump that they've chosen a violent street gang AND A GLOBAL TERROR ORGANIZATION as their torch-bearing heroes. Come on, Democrats. Are you seriously baffled why the American people are turning their backs on you?

Still not enough evidence? Here's the New York Times just yesterday. Charles Blow wrote a piece called "A Blue Wave of Moral Restoration" where he tried to make the case that the president and Republicans were the enemy, but — fear not — Democrat morality was here to save the day.

Here are some of these cases Blow tries to make for why Trump is unfit to be President:

No person who treats women the way Trump does and brags on tape about sexually assaulting them should be president.

Ok, fine. You can make that argument if you want to, but why weren't you making this same argument for Bill Clinton? Never mind, I actually know the reason. Because you were too busy trying to bury the Juanita Broaddrick story.

Let's move on:

No person who has demonstrated himself to be a pathological liar should be president.

Do the words, “You can keep your doctor" mean anything to the New York Times or Charles Blow? I might have saved the best for last:

No person enveloped by a cloud of corruption should be president.

I can only think of three words for a response to this: Hillary Frigging Clinton.

Try displaying a little consistency.

If the media really wants Donald Trump gone and the Democrats to take over, they might want to try displaying a little consistency. But hey, maybe that's just too much to ask.

How about starting with not glorifying terrorist organizations and murderous street gangs. Could we at least begin there?

If not… good luck in the midterms.

In the weeks following President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the mainstream media was quick to criticize the president's pro-Israel stance and make dire predictions of violent backlash in the Middle East. Fast forward to this week's opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem and the simultaneous Palestinian “protests" in Gaza.

Predictably, the mainstream media chastised Israel for what they called “state-sanctioned terrorism" when the IDF stepped in to protect their country from so-called peaceful Palestinian protesters. Hamas leaders later admitted that at least 50 of the 62 Palestinians killed in the clashes were Hamas terrorists.

“In our post-modern media age, there is no truth and nobody even seems to be looking for it …. This is shamefully clear in the media especially this week with their coverage of the conflict between the border of Israel and the Gaza strip," said Glenn on today's show. He added, “The main media narrative this week is about how the IDF is just killing innocent protesters, while Hamas officials have confirmed on TV that 50 of the 62 people killed were working for Hamas."

The mainstream media views the Palestinians as the oppressed people who just want to share the land and peacefully coexist with the people of Israel. “They can't seem to comprehend that in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, only one side is actively trying to destroy the other," surmised Glenn.
