GLENN: The news is absolutely incredible, from the porn industry wanting a bailout which we'll get to in a second, and I don't think you can argue with them -- from the porn industry wanting a bailout to New York now wanting longer coverage for your kids on health insurance. Well, wait a minute, what does that mean? You can keep your kids on your health insurance a longer period of time. Well, that sounds fantastic. Wait a minute, doesn't that already cover through college? Yeah, yeah, yeah. No, no, your kids can stay under Mommy and Daddy's wing until they're 30. Get out of the house, deadbeat! Get a job and get some healthcare! 30, I'm about to snap. And then I read this one, and only in New York: A guy is having trouble with his relationship with his wife and she gets sick and they have been having problems and they're struggling and everything else, but she's sick. Until death do us part. She gets so sick, she needs a kidney. Her husband looks at her and says, "Honey, I've already given you my heart. I'll give you my kidney, too." He donates a kidney to his wife; she gets better and then she cheats on him. And he says, you've got to be kidding me, right? "What? You know how sexy that scar is there? Oh, yes." So now they're in divorce court. And only in the city where it snows up is he saying, "I want my damn kidney back."

Now, as crazy as that sounds, the judge's response was, "We don't think there's a court in the land that would do it." We don't think there's a court in the land that would do it? I mean, you know, possession is 9/10ths of the law. I think when it comes to the kidney, I think you keep the kidney. Stu disagrees with me? She's got to give the kidney back?

STU: You are a guy and you have -- you are a loyal, in a long-term relationship and your wife is nearing death. So you give her, you give her one of your most vital organs and she cheats on you? You get scissors and you pop the thing out.

GLENN: No, wait a minute. Hang on just a second. I didn't know he could take it out himself. I may be on your side.

STU: I'm just sayin'.

GLENN: If legally the judge says, yes, but you have to take it out with this rusty spoon, then I might be on your side. No, look, here's the thing. When you give somebody something, especially a kidney, an organ, you give it to them. For instance, do you loan money to your family?

STU: I do not think that is a good idea.

GLENN: That wasn't the question. Do you loan money to your family?

STU: I'm trying to give you an accurate answer here. I would say no. I never would loan --

GLENN: You never have in nobody's ever asked you for money? You've never loaned money?

STU: I would never --

GLENN: Why are you so -- what have I caught you in?

STU: No, you can't --

GLENN: What kind of made-up scam are you in with your parents? Really, Mom, just invest more.

STU: What happens is I pay my mom and then my children will have to pay me later.

GLENN: Oh, so Uncle Sam, it's you. Okay.

STU: No, I would never -- the bottom line is -- and this is I think, I think this is universal: You never loan money to someone in your family and actually expect it back.

GLENN: Exactly right. Exactly right. If you loan somebody in your family money, you just can't expect it back. They can promise, "I promise," uh-huh, whatever. Because if they don't, then your family life is wrecked with them forever because you are always seething about, "You never paid -- you just went out and you bought what? You've upgraded? You are now eating Alpo when you can eat the generic stuff?"

STU: That doesn't mean they don't pay it back. They should.

GLENN: You've got to let it go and you've just got to give it. When you are giving somebody an organ, see, I have to tell you. If you gave me an organ and then all of a sudden you thought you owned me, you don't even own my kidney.

STU: Whoa, whoa, whoa. That has nothing to do with owning. It's about respecting the vows.

GLENN: How do you know that's not his attitude?

STU: He wants the kidney back. He deserves the kidney back.

GLENN: If they are rich -- and this is the case they are making also is, I want the kidney back or I want the money. "

STU: Right.

GLENN: And you could make the case, they valued the kidney at, what is it, $1.5 million? You could make the -- yeah, $1.5 million. You could make the case that she has to pay you for the kidney.

STU: Legally I don't know that you have a case to reclaim the kidney, I will be honest. But I'm just saying in the real world, if you are that horrible a person that someone will give you one of their vital organs and you will still treat them like trash, you deserve to lose the kidney. He could just, he doesn't even have to use it. He doesn't have to put it back in. He can just put it on his mantel in a little glass box like it's a trophy and I'd be fine with it.

GLENN: It would be. If I got the kidney from my wife who cheated on me, I wouldn't want it back in me. I'd want it on my fireplace. I would. I'd want it on the mantel. I might use it, I might bronze it and use it as a doorstop.

STU: I might just wait until it's completely unusable and then mail it to her just so she -- you can have it; I just don't want it to work.

GLENN: You know what? I've changed my mind. Here's the kidney back. You are right. But see, that wasn't what Jesus would do. But then again, Jesus wasn't married, now, was he? Uh-huh, didn't marry Jesus, did ya? I want the kidney back.

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.
