Glenn Beck: Political Geek Update

Its sad when our best hope is that the Democrats don’t get 60 seats in the Senate...

GLENN: Let's go quickly to Stu and get our election report.

STU: We're focusing on the Senate again, Glenn, trying to keep the Democrats away from 60 seats. That is the big number. The four must-win states for Republicans: Mississippi where they are currently leading by at least one, in other polls even more; Georgia by two they lead; Texas by 6 they lead; and the other one is in Kentucky where McConnell leads by 4 and a couple of other polls are actually even more optimistic about that. But an interesting thing has happened in this race. There was a debate the other day and after the debate was over, basically where you could have tape recorders that you could put on the little, on the podium and when the debate was over, McConnell's opponent, the Democrat, stole the tape recorder off -- stole the Republican tape recorder off of the podium.

GLENN: How would he --

STU: Now, this is all on camera because, of course, it's a debate. Now, you wonder why you would put a tape recorder on the podium. Some people was saying because there were audio problems, the other people were saying they were trying to catch him saying something under his breath. But it was apparently allowed by the rules. So we have actually the tape. What happened was he took the tape. It started going between some of his aides. They eventually erased it but they digitally recovered the tape. This is actual audio of the tape. You can hear -- what you're going to hear here basically is a lot of static, a lot of rustling around in this tape recorder because they were stupid enough to steal it but not turn it off. So it was continually recording. You can hear what appears to be the Democratic opponent saying "Don't give it back to them."

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

STU: It's unbelievable. And then at the end you'll actually hear them walk into the bathroom and hear toilets flushing and they still hadn't turned it off. Eventually --

GLENN: Turn the music off for a second, Dan, so we can really hear. This is very difficult for you to hear. It's very obnoxious audio, but listen to this.

(Audio playing)

STU: Rustling around, walking toward the bathroom now. Hear the audio cut down a little. And there's the toilet flushing.

GLENN: That's just unbelievable. I mean, can you -- I mean, look what we're looking to put into congress, people who steal -- we've got 4-year-olds stealing tape recorders and saying, don't give it back to them, don't give it back to them.

STU: It's unbelievable.

GLENN: That should -- you know what? Let me tell you something. I know the good people of Kentucky. You should not vote for anybody, I don't care what side that was on, I'd be saying if it was McConnell, you do not vote for somebody who is a thief, a knowing thief because he's going to come in the middle of the night and check your wallet.

STU: We project two more states in the presidential race today with 100% accuracy. Today Iowa for Barack Obama and Idaho for John McCain. The current electoral vote count, McCain 131, Barack Obama 95.

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."
