Glenn Beck - EPA: Air is Dangerous

Glenn: If you look at what happened yesterday, the stories that broke yesterday with the EPA, the EPA now saying that they're going to regulate CO2, Congress coming out, John Kerry -- do we have any of the statements, Pat?

Pat: Yeah. I have John Kerry's statement. He said -- we don't have the audio. It's just a release.

Glenn: Uh-huh.

Pat: This is a clear message -- in his voice, This is a clear message to "Copenhogen" of the Obama administration's commitment to address global climate change and a clear signal to Congress of the importance of passing comprehensive climate energy legislation.

Glenn: Let me translate. We're --

Pat: This is blackmail.

Glenn: Yes.

Pat: This President and this Congress are black mailing the American people.

Glenn: Here's -- here's -- here's how it works: They are -- they're telling us now that if Congress doesn't pass cap and trade, we'll just have cap. That's what they're saying.

Pat: Uh-huh.

Glenn: And it will destroy the economy. What's interesting to me is somehow or the other Congress, who is becoming more and more irrelevant every single day, they're trying to make you believe that they can't control the EPA. All they have to do is pass a law saying, no, the EPA's not doing that, period, and it's over. Instead, they set up this false premise that you have to pass cap and trade because what the EPA is going to do is worse because they're out of control. Excuse me? The EPA is out of control? Then maybe Congress should abolish the EPA. Maybe Congress should abolish the ability for the EPA to control the economy. It's just that easy, but they don't think anybody is going to see that. You have the FTC now, the FTC is going to just move ahead with regulation with neutrality because Congress just isn't moving fast enough. Your Congressmen, your senators are being spineless weasels and they are allowing these agencies to grow out of control. Who is in charge? I urge you. I said about a year ago you need to read a book. It's one of the worst books -- I mean, it's horrible. It's just -- this novel is just so -- oh, it's awful. I was going to say, imagine the worst person you could imagine writing a novel. They wrote it, but then a lot of people will go, well, you, Glenn. Imagine the worst novel you could imagine. Got it? It's this one. It was written in the 1900's, early 1900's. It's called Phillip Dru, Administrator. Why do you laugh?

Pat: I read Nancy Drew. Is that --

Glenn: No. It's D-r-u. They're different.

Pat: Oh.

Glenn: Phillip Dru, Administrator, the reason why I read that book -- this was a few years ago -- I was reading something on Woodrow Wilson and the book that I was reading quoted this or said that he was reading his favorite novel, Phillip Dru, blah blah blah, and Woodrow Wilson had read this book a couple of times during his administration and so I was curious. I usually -- when I read books, I will highlight or dog-ear pages where it quotes another book or something that influenced their thinking and so I track a person's thinking down by trying to read what they were reading at the time. So, since this is one of his favorite books and he read it a couple of times, I thought, I wonder what that was all about. So, I read it. It's awful, but it is the blueprint of what we're doing right now. Phillip Dru is just a war hero. He's just -- everybody loves him. He's just the greatest. He doesn't want to serve, but he will. Oh, gosh. I don't want to be the President, but I will, because it's the right thing for America. But Congress is so corrupt. If there was just some way to stop Congress from being so -- Hey, I know. I'll just -- I'll just put a bunch of departments in and I'll just go over everybody's head and I -- because everybody can trust me because I'm a war hero. Gosh. And I didn't want to serve, but I will, because I'm just like the average American Joe and then I'll just put in some administrators and -- because there won't be any corruption. They won't have any desire to be corrupt. Administrators? They'll be fine. And they will write to me, the President of the United States. And so what these administrators do is, well, they go and they look at all of the different things that are going wrong. In fact, he sends 50 of them out to go look at all of states and the state Constitutions and some of these things in the State Constitutions, they're just crazy. (Laugher.) They're just nuts. So, our administrators will go ahead and tell those states which laws they should have and which laws they shouldn't and just make those Constitutions, which are so old and written in such archaic language, that maybe we should just rewrite them just a little bit so everybody can understand them. And we're just going to thank a few things and we're also going to oversee all of the businesses and the financial sectors and everything else because they're just -- those people are just so corrupt, we need somebody pure, somebody that can restore hope, like Phillip Dru, who doesn't want to do these things. He just has to. Does any of that sound familiar?

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?
