GLENN: And now there was also some good news and some bad news, speaking of people. On Friday I know a lot of people were very upset at me and we talked about it off the air and I'm like, guys, you guys are setting me up, man. We had this whole thing planned about Palin. We had talked about it the night before. That what we were going to do was say that we had bikini photos because the number one search for Palin was like, hot Palin, sex Palin, all of these things. So we were talking about, what are we turning into as a country that that's what you're looking for? So we decided, what we're going to do is we say that we have bikini photos. We don't have any bikini photos. I'm happy to say if I had bikini photos, I wouldn't put them in the newsletter. But what we decided to do is since there were so many people that would be drawn to bikini photos that we would not the bikini photos but all the things that you need to know about Sarah Palin and put it in a way that you could send it to your friends that they're like, oh, bikini photos? And it was kind of a joke but then in the end you learned a lot about Sarah Palin. Dan, you want to give me some of the stats?


DAN: Yes, I do, Glenn.

GLENN: There's good news and bad news.

DAN: Yes.

GLENN: We get to the good news at the very, very, very end.

DAN: So the first page was the warning, you know, click here to get the pictures. And there was a link

GLENN: Click here for Palin bikini pics.

DAN: Warning, you are going to get pictures of Sarah Palin in a bikini here. Compared to the previous most open item on the news, Glenn Beck newsletter which was ironically your butt surgery video, which was huge.

GLENN: My butt?

DAN: The open rate. So anyway, that was six times bigger than your butt surgery video.

GLENN: You've got to be kidding me.

DAN: Six times bigger. Which was humongous.

GLENN: Wasn't the Palin thing, because when I released that video where I talk about suicide and everything else, that was everywhere, it was huge on YouTube. But I don't even think that made it to number one. Wasn't it like number two or number three? Joe was telling me over the weekend my Palin interview was number one on YouTube when they announced. Did you know that?

STU: Yeah, yeah, it was the number one most watched Palin video. And it still was for even after her speech for at least a while. I don't know that it currently is but it's up there. It's over 700,000 views of that interview.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

DAN: Disturbing part about that stat, by the way, Glenn, videos about your butt is only six times less interesting than Sarah Palin and bikinis. There should be more of a separation there.

GLENN: Should be more of a spread, yes, I agree with you, yes.

DAN: But anyway, still a lot bigger. So then you get to the next at the bottom of that page it said, really? She's a governor, you shouldn't be looking at these pictures but if you really want to see them, click here was the next one.

GLENN: Right.

DAN: So 62% of the people who got the warning clicked the link to move forward and see the bikini pictures.

STU: I'm surprised it's only 62%.

GLENN: 38% of the people bailed out, they felt guilty. They are like, oh, you've got to be kidding. It's us, man, you don't fall through. Come on!

DAN: I mean, you've gone through the warning, you've done everything else.

GLENN: You are like, okay, I'm going to make half the effort. You know what I mean? It was like, look, it was so easy. But then all of a sudden it's like Jiminy Cricket pops up. Pinocchio, you can't do that. I want to be a real boy. I want to look at the pictures.

DAN: Mentally you've already committed. You might as well just go ahead and do it. You know what I'm saying? 38%, that was a pretty decent rate there. Then the final page was the last one that had, you know, all the stats and stuff on it, you know, again with no actual bikini picture. But this is where our stats get a little foggy because tens of thousands of people are now passing the final page around on the Internet. So the last page actually increased by 20%. More than the one before.

GLENN: There's more people opening up the last page. Wasn't it I was supposed to go out as a whole thing so you could it doesn't do that, huh?

DAN: Technically just didn't work that way this time. I think if we have more pictures of her in a bikini

GLENN: If you send it to your friends, is the subject line still bikini pics?

STU: Yeah, says Sarah Palin bikini pictures.

GLENN: Can we make that page available so you can send it to your friends?

STU: I think that's the big thing here is you have to get your friends on it.

GLENN: They do.

STU: And the thing about it is the last page because we got some angry e mails on Friday. People really pissed at us, "What if it was your daughter? What would you do then?"

DAN: You are a moral man, Glenn, you know better than this.

GLENN: No, I do. Look, here's the thing, here's the thing. A, I'm not going to come off my stance. She's hot. She's smoking hot and I know, I got a lot of mail from people in the last week, "That's demeaning." No, it's not. She's hot.

DAN: Nothing wrong with that.

GLENN: You can say she's hot.

STU: It's scientifically confirmed, Glenn. You have to say it.

DAN: They say it about Barack Obama.

GLENN: Please stop with that. She's hot. That doesn't mean I want to go and have sex photos of her, although no. It's not that I want I mean, come on. I can recognize that she's hot. I am a man. She's a woman. That's a normal thing.

With that being said, we shouldn't I don't think we should be looking for her bikini photos and that's why I mean, give me some benefit of the doubt, will you? I mean, people who have listened to this program and who have made it through the through Bo Bo and have made it through the first ever on air abortion which, by the way, turned out surprisingly enough to be Al Frankens' first show, which I didn't see it coming. But anybody who went through that, you should give us the benefit of the doubt that we're yes, we're on the edge but we're not going to be sending around bikini

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. I want to make sure we don't have any, right? So I can make this blanket statement?

STU: Yes, you can.

GLENN: Until we get them, we're not going to be sending around Palin bikini pics.

STU: The point of it was at the end

GLENN: I don't really want to see them.

STU: I do. But the point of this was that you'd send this around to your friends, it would get clicked on and at the end there's sort of a Sarah Palin myth busters thing which shows, goes through some of the stupid things that they are passing around about her and how they are not true and how all these you know, there's videos of all these things being, you know, kind of debunked. So I mean, the point of it is that eventually you get to, we lure people into actually hearing good information.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. It is the Fusion of entertainment and enlightenment.

STU: There you go.

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.
