Glenn Beck: Political Geek Update

VOICE: Attention, attention, procrastinators of America. If you blew up filing your taxes on April 15th and decided to file an extension, today is your tax day. It's October 15th. Remember, as Joe Biden says, paying taxes is patriotic and luckily if he gets in office, you'll have an opportunity to be more and more patriotic every year. This message brought to you by the fat lazy people of America.

VOICE: Electoral votes, control of the Senate. Popular vote count, the latest poll. Control of the House. Up-to-the-minute rumors and falsehoods. Fancy buzzwords, and more. It's a political geek election report on the Glenn Beck program.

GLENN: Stu, I can't wait for the good news on which states you are going to call not for Obama today. You've gone way out on a limb.

STU: I really have, Glenn, and with 100% accuracy so far. I mean, you can never predict the future.

GLENN: Sure.

STU: But there's no reason to believe this will stop. It's a tidal wave of accuracy.

GLENN: What do we have today in political news?

STU: Well, the third debate is tonight, the final debate for the presidency. What are the things he needs to hit?

GLENN: He definitely needs to kick his ass.

STU: He can't just kind of --

GLENN: Stop with socialist ideas, he should probably say I'm going to unleash Sarah Palin like a pit bull in congress.

STU: I like that.

GLENN: Just sayin'. I'm gonna, you know, I'm gonna take a real strong look at that Fed and the Treasury and say I don't think we should give them all this power, and then take it back. I'm going to build a time machine so we can go back and -- these are just some of the things that I'm thinking. I'm just, I'm free-wheeling. We're in a safety tree, right?

STU: We're totally in a safety tree.

GLENN: We're just brainstorming here.

STU: Let it flow. You're freestyling.

GLENN: How about, you know what? I'm going to give it to -- I'm going to give it to Romney. I think I'm going to give it to Romney because I think he would probably have a better handle on the -- make people feel a little more comfortable on the economy.

STU: You are suggesting he ejects himself from the presidency?

GLENN: Yeah. Just, hey, that whole thing, you guys were wrong. That whole thing. I mean, I know you are already ahead, you are thinking I'm going to vote for Obama. You are wrong on that one, too. So I'm going to do the right thing.

STU: This is quite an interesting list. None of it's supported by polling, which is what I was going to give you a couple of --

GLENN: Okay, go ahead. What's the polling say?

STU: Well, let me give you two examples. Number one, a recent poll now says that Democrats are trusted on the issue of taxes 47-42%.

GLENN: Well, let me ask you this: When I say to you California is on fire, can you tell me which --

STU: Texas, Texas is also having all those huge economy problems.

GLENN: No, Texas isn't.

STU: Oh, they are the reverse?

GLENN: Yeah, when I say California is on fire, which -- do I mean in a literally or figuratively?

STU: That's a very good point.

GLENN: Both. It's a trick question. All right, anyway, go ahead.

STU: So 47-42 in taxes. McCain is not going to win this election if he can't convince people that Republicans have better tax policies. Of all things in the world, he's got to hit him on this 95% thing. He's got to hit him on this capital gains tax. He released a few very good proposals today. So hopefully he can actually articulate those to the people. Also in five swing states polling going on from Rasmussen which I believe is the most accurate pollster has every one of those states has more people extremely comfortable with Obama than they are with McCain. Again, can't lose on those two categories. So he's got a tough road to --

GLENN: Can you give some happy news?

STU: By the way --

GLENN: I mean, I'll invest in rope here in a second.

STU: We have our moment of hope here in a second. I shall --

GLENN: This is the moment of change?

STU: This is the moment of change, change in programming. In Hour 2 we have Scott Rasmussen, the pollster, on.

GLENN: Oh, good.

STU: For a half hour talking all sorts of polls, history, what's going on now. So that should be interesting.

GLENN: Okay.

STU: Our moment of hope, 80% of CEOs think that McCain has a better economic policy. And, of course, as we know Democrats have been telling us for years, CEOs are evil and run the world. So if that's true, then he should be cruising to victory.

GLENN: Right. But he's strangely not. More importantly on that, that's from Chief Executive Magazine. They did I think 751 CEOs, they asked him which one are you for. None of them were for either. They were for -- they were actually for Mitt Romney. They were just, "If I have these two to choose from, it's going to be McCain." And the question, the second question or third question was which presidential candidate do you fear, if any. 64% said Obama.

STU: Wow. You'd think, though, if CEOs run the world, then Mitt Romney would have been the candidate. I don't know how that didn't work out. Let's call our states here, Glenn. We've got to make sure. Very important. Projected winner. We can now with 100% confidence call Washington D.C. for Barack Obama and Louisiana for John McCain. Our electoral vote count, John McCain 64, Barack Obama 20.

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."
