Glenn Beck: Sept. 12th Americans

GLENN: Let's go to Don in Pennsylvania, WPHT. Hi, Don.

CALLER: Hey, Glenn. First I'm going to welcome you to my town tomorrow. You are going to Exton tomorrow?

GLENN: Yes, I think I am.

CALLER: I live in Downingtown next door.

GLENN: Am I going there or Friday? I don't even know what day it is.

CALLER: I'm sorry. I don't know what day it is. I'm hoping to see you.

GLENN: Good. I hope so too.

CALLER: With that said let me tell you then I have great respect for your voice.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

CALLER: Your point of view and everything that you say I try to live my life.

GLENN: Hold on just a second. Stu, the odds that something complimentary is following this.

STU: Very, very low.

GLENN: Very low, very low. Okay.

CALLER: Very, very low.

GLENN: Very low.

CALLER: Very low.

GLENN: Go ahead.

STU: But?

CALLER: And I listen to you all the time because I am in construction. I'm a Mason. So there's not a lot of noise. You are on constantly.

GLENN: Wait a minute. Hang on just a second. When you say Mason, like the secret handshake guy?

CALLER: No, like brick. I called you last year and told you you were killing my business.

GLENN: I believe I remember you.

CALLER: I was wrong.

GLENN: I was wrong?

CALLER: No, I was wrong. My business survived. When you got on, Americans got to save money, blah, blah, blah, that whole thing I kept saying, well, if everybody does that, then what happens to me?

GLENN: No, no, here's the deal. Don, you just need to always -- if you are in business, you just need to always provide quality.

Food Storage Tip #12

You'd be surprised how much instant Hamburger Helper your garage can hold...

CALLER: You know, I understand.

GLENN: Quality. People always spend money.

CALLER: My business is fine.

GLENN: Right.

CALLER: I learned that through my business staying.


CALLER: You know, because of my trade, there's not a whole lot out there that can do what I can do, even though there is.

GLENN: All right. Let me hear the bottom.

CALLER: Anyway, here's my point. My point is I have three kids, a stay-at-home wife. How am I supposed to save food? Because if it comes to the point where I have to save food, no matter how good my quality is, people aren't going to have the money. And it's not me. It's every other good guy that I know. We're all in the same boat.

GLENN: Right.

CALLER: And I've thought about, you know, be the leader of my house. That's done. That's not a problem. I've gone over things with my wife.

GLENN: What is your -- what is your problem with having some food in the house?

CALLER: Food, I mean, three weeks, that's -- inflation's only going to hit me for three weeks, then food's going to be able to go down? I can't store years of food in my house.

GLENN: Yes, you can. You'd be surprised in what you can do.

CALLER: Things will -- excuse me, but you think things are going to get that bad that me, who has a good business, that, you know, my work is everything, my work is everything.

GLENN: Who are you talking to?

CALLER: I'm going to have to store food for a year to keep my family alive?

GLENN: Who do you think you're talking to? I mean, it's not like you're calling, you know, Willy Wonka, Mr. Sunshine. Yeah, I do think it's going to get bad. Now, do you need a year's worth of food? I don't know. That's up to you. Do you need to buy what you can in bulk and store what you can that you consume? Yeah. Don, it is just, look at it this way. Don't look at it like, "The world is going to end" because you know what, Don? Many are going to survive. Remember in the Great Depression not everybody was hurt. If you had a job, you had a hard time making ends meet, et cetera, et cetera but you got through it and businesses -- not only did business survive, businesses that understood quality thrived, okay? So you may not be affected; you may be. But when you're looking at ways to, "What's the best thing I can do for my dollar," everybody needs to start looking for value. That's why companies like Nordstrom's are having a hard time. Nordstrom's is a great store. I grew up in Seattle. Nordstrom's is a great, great store. However, Wal-Mart is going to be the place that is really going to weather the storm because you can buy more for your dollar at Wal-Mart, okay? So it doesn't mean anything bad about Nordstrom's. It just means people are going to be looking for the best value for their dollar. You have to do the same thing. When it comes to food, understand the best place you can put your dollar right now isn't hard goods that are going to increase in value. You don't have to buy gold. You buy food. If inflation is -- it's already 13%. They will tell you that it's 5, but if you figure it the way it has always been, it's already 13%. You add another 5, 10, 15 points on inflation, it's difficult for a lot of people to buy food. If you had three months of food, if you had six months of food, it would allow you to relieve some -- it's not that you are going to be using all of it all the time unless you're out of a job. You can use that to relieve some of the pressure, you know, in tough times. Believe me, it is a smart investment, it is something that will relieve stress. And again, Don, your family may be good but it is -- this is the theme of what I've been talking about for the last three weeks. What gives me hope is that people are waking up. We are strong, rugged individuals. Each of us have amazing power within us. Each of us make a difference.

Now, you have a choice to make. You are going to say, "I've got a great business and I'm going to survive." Well, you know what? I am, too, brother. But it's not just our responsibility to help ourselves and help our own businesses and employ our, you know, employees and the people that work around us. It is also our responsibility to help others in need. You are going to be a shelter for somebody, you are going to need to be a leader for somebody. But with tough times ahead you are going to be prepared. The stress it will relieve for not only you but others around you will be a great blessing because you are going to feel like the September 12th person. You are going to feel, you are going to -- a metaphor for what is coming is September 11th. It's not going to be an event but it's going to be something that scares a lot of people and they don't know what it is and you need to be the person that is either standing in the street corner with the boot or the one that rolls down your window and puts the money in the boot at every single block. Not because you have to but because you can and because you want to. Because you're a September 12th American.

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."
