Glenn Beck is seen here in his darkened studio on the Insider Webcam, an exclusive feature available only to Glenn Beck Insiders. Learn more...

GLENN: So John McCain is dealing with the three possible candidates and I've heard a fourth today but I think this is just hype coming from Bloomberg. Fourth one is Bloomberg. John McCain, are you -- there's no way John McCain picks Michael Bloomberg.

STU: That makes no sense.

GLENN: No sense whatsoever.

STU: Yes, you know, they both agree on a couple of things like global warming and stuff.

GLENN: Second Amendment?

STU: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: John McCain, the only thing he has going for him is he's good on the Second Amendment.

STU: That's not the only thing.

GLENN: One of them. I mean the war, too.

STU: But he is strong on the Second Amendment. Bloomberg's horrible on it.

GLENN: Horrible.

STU: Not to mention in all --

GLENN: Why would you do that.

STU: What possible person would -- it doesn't make any sense at all. You are not going to win New York anyway.

GLENN: No.

STU: There's no way.

GLENN: No.

STU: The only thing you would want to do, the only possible validity to that is because John McCain is a crappy fundraiser and if you have a guy who's going to donate $200 million of his own money, there's some reason you can understand it.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: But it still doesn't make enough sense. They don't agree on -- I mean, they don't agree on enough.

GLENN: Yeah. So I mean, it would just be a horrible move. Then there's Crist out of Florida. Here's my problem with Crist. He's too tan. I know --

STU: Very good point.

GLENN: I know that that might be a little shallow, but I think he's too tan. He's --how do you get a tan like that?

STU: Well, maybe you are working outside.

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait, wait.

STU: You've got to admire a guy with a tan like that.

GLENN: I want to know, all of a sudden does the state assembly have some sort of a sunroof?

STU: I don't know the answer to that.

GLENN: Capital building?

STU: I like a guy who can keep things in perspective.

GLENN: Come on! Somebody with a tan that much, you're George Hamilton. You're laying by the pool all the time. I don't want George Hamilton in there.

STU: I don't know. George Hamilton might be a good candidate as they don't consider George Hamilton. I don't know.

GLENN: Nobody's considered George Hamilton.

STU: Maybe we should consider George Hamilton.

GLENN: Now let's go on to Governor Jindal. I like him.

STU: Yeah, I like him a lot. He's definitely a rising star in the party.

GLENN: But he's like 12.

STU: Yeah, he's pretty young and he's only been governor for, what, a year?

GLENN: Yeah, but he was a congressman.

STU: Still, though, I mean I don't know that -- I mean, --

GLENN: Oh, I'm sorry, yeah, Barack Obama's experience is so extensive. I mean, at least he's run a state.

STU: But I think there's -- look, I can't answer for the Democrats and why they're only -- their two candidates both have been in office for, like, 16 weeks.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: But, you know, I think Jindal would be great. I think that he's probably not going to get it there time just because he hasn't -- isn't the requirement, the legal requirement to be --

GLENN: I'm sorry. Hang on. Could you transfer that to my screen?

STU: To be President is 35, right?

GLENN: Would you check? If that's Jack Bauer, I'd like to know. Would you just -- it might be Jack Bauer. He might be saying, I need to talk to the President, I need you to -- could you just, could you just tap into their servers? It could be. I don't know. Is it Jack Bauer?

STU: I think we're getting updated information here. We'll have this to you in just a second. This is breaking.

GLENN: Was it Jack Bauer? Is there a bomb ready to go off? Does he need me to do anything? Because I'll do it. I'll lie my face off to the people in charge here.

STU: Well, of course you would.

GLENN: That's right. To help Jack? You bet.

STU: It wasn't Jack Bauer, though.

GLENN: Oh. Who was it?

STU: It was a much less shapely person. We're going to be getting him on the phone here in a minute because he's got inside information on one of the topics we're talking about.

GLENN: Really?

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Which topic?

STU: Governor Crist.

GLENN: Governor Crist? I forget that he's the governor.

STU: Right. He's the governor.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Much less shapely. Jeffy?

CALLER: Yes, Mr. Beck. I hear you talking to the governor to the great state of Florida.

GLENN: He's too tan.

VOICE: You know, he claims that that is from his heritage, his Greek heritage. So you have to account for that.

GLENN: Are you saying that basically what I was saying was he's too Greek?

VOICE: Then you're a racist.

GLENN: Is that what it is? I'm a racist? Right.

VOICE: Letting you know.

GLENN: He's too tan. How does a man -- I'm sorry. I know Greek people. You fade a little bit.

VOICE: You don't know Florida Greek people.

GLENN: The man should be inside working. The man should be inside working. I'm just saying.

VOICE: He's out meeting and greeting people is what it is.

GLENN: He should not be out meeting and greeting people.

VOICE: When he's out meeting and greeting people, the sun darkens his skin with the Greek heritage. That's what he says.

GLENN: Do you think that -- no, he's lying. It's the golf course! Do you --

STU: I give him credit for it.

GLENN: You know what? I want him to roll up his sleeve. I want to see if he has a farmer's tan. I want to see. And this is not in a weird way. I want him to take off his shirt. If he's tan all over, he's laying by the pool some place.

VOICE: He shouldn't have to prove himself to racist people like you.

GLENN: He should prove that he's not tan all over. I want to see his tan line.

STU: We should point out that, just so the audience is clear, that this is definitely in a weird way. Like, what you're doing now is definitely weird.

GLENN: No. You don't think we have a right to see his tan lines?

VOICE: Why?

STU: Definitely not.

VOICE: No.

GLENN: Because I'm telling you, and this might be a good reason to hire him, I don't think he's actually even running the state. I think he's got all of his calls just transferred right to his pool. I want to talk to somebody who --

STU: That's who I want.

GLENN: I want to talk to somebody who has actually been on the phone with Governor Crist and then swear they heard, like, pool splashing. And he's like, no, I'm at a signing ceremony. That was a pool splash.

VOICE: Listen, he claims that he swims every day for exercise.

GLENN: Ah, now we're starting to get to the truth, uh-huh.

VOICE: That's what the man says.

GLENN: "I swim for exercise usually between 10:00 and 3:00 in the afternoon."

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
