VOICE: The Glenn Beck Program starts more truth behind America's March to Socialism.

GLENN: That's right, we are and happy socialists, we're all socialists now, don't forget, I know it because Newsweek magazine told me so. You see, capitalism -- and I should probably define this. That funny little system that turned the world at a place where we lost our teeth at 9 years old, married at 12 and died at 22 to a place that instantly complains when we can't access a video file on a server in China in four seconds. You know, that capitalism, it's dead. I can't wait until our children can die at 22 again. Oh, sure, there was a time when someone like Ayn Rand was popular, but those days are over. Ayn Rand, by the way, she wrote books like "Atlas Shrugged" about how the individual working hard and innovating, you know, was the backbone of a civilized society and that the government is constantly standing in their way flexing its muscles and holding us all back. So antiquated now. That time is over.

In completely unrelated news, Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged" sold more copies in 2008 than any other year since its release in 1957. You know what, there's been -- there could be a lot of book burnings that people are just taking it off the shelf and just burning it. Americans -- I'm quoting from the article -- Americans are flocking to buy and read "Atlas Shrugged" because there are uncanny similarities between the plot line of the book and the events of our day, says Yaron Brook, executive director of the Ayn Rand Center For Individual Rights. Americans are rightfully concerned about the economic crisis in government's increasing intervention and attempts to control the economy. No. Ayn Rand understood and identified the deeper causes of the crisis we're facing, and she offered in "Atlas Shrugged" the principled and practical solution consistent with American values. That's weird. Because there seems to be a lot of people mistakenly not realizing that capitalism is dead. Hello, why are you reading the book? It's over. By the way, despite the fact that sales were at an all-time high in 2008, sales of Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged" have almost tripled over the first seven weeks of this year compared with the sales for the same period last year, which was a record. But remember, capitalism is dead. And it's weird because, you know, the economy the way it is, I mean, who's buying books? Maybe it's just that people are so confident that things are going to turn around, you know, that it's going to turn around really, really soon that they are out just spending their money like water." Hey, this magical system of socialism, it's going to cure everything.

VOICE: That was even more overwhelming evidence that we are destined to be a bunch of socialist pigs very, very soon on the Glenn Beck Program.

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."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?
