Glenn: So, here's the latest on Joe Lieberman. Joe Lieberman is still standing fast at this hour, but, I mean, they're throwing everything a him, everything good, we'll make it all -- what do you want, Joe? What do you want? What do you want? I want gold-plated streets in Connecticut. They would give them to Connecticut. The question is: Why? What are they getting in return except power? So, gee Lieberman at this hour is still standing fast of the how long that lasts remains to be seen. I hope, Joe Lieberman -- I mean this sincerely -- fall to your knees and pray that Joe Lieberman is strengthened and so are those who are all around him. The temptation and the pressure coming to these people standing against health care is enormous, absolutely enormous. Here's what they're doing to his wife today. They are trying to force her from a charitable board, the Breast Cancer Awareness Board that she serves on, because her husband is against universal health care. So, they're trying to force her off of this board. Let me just make sure I have this right. The people who told women not to get mammograms are trying to force off the board of directors, the woman who stands by the guy who says, you know, maybe she shouldn't be the one making the decision.

Maybe we should let the private doctors and the women make the decision on mammograms. If they get away with forcing this woman off of that board, if that board allows her to be forced off the board, if they -- if they say, we've got to distance ourself from her, not a dime. I mean, we as individuals need to understand who we're playing with and who's folding under the pressure, because it's time for people of character, it's time for people -- I've got to tell you. I recorded a show last next, because all next week I'm on vacation, but we've recorded these great shows. Next week the shows that you're going to see are some of my favorite shows we've done and I can't believe it because I'm, like, I'm going to be away. I'm not going to be able to watch it. We did a show last night where I talked about -- and I've talked about it on the radio -- when Raphe said to me -- we were reading some scriptures and I don't remember who the Bible hero was, but I said, What a hero, huh? And he said -- he looked at me just perplexed, my five-year-old son, No. And I said, why not? And he said, He can't fly. So, I had one of the guys who's written for Superman, he is one of the guys who wrote Superman in the comic books and I had a couple of other people there that are writing about heroes. It is the most fascinating show because it starts out with what are real heroes, etc., etc. By the half-hour break, maybe by 20 minutes into it, we were all talking about George Washington. Here are four men that were telling stories about George Washington, four men who, unbeknownst to each other, two of them are writing a book on George Washington and all four of them have found George Washington to be the ultimate American hero in the last year. I asked the audience, I said, who here is reading about the founding fathers and rediscovering the founding fathers right now? I believe every hand in the audience went up. Then I asked the question, who was reading anything or reading the Constitution, even, or any of the founding documents or any -- about any of the founders a year ago? Four people.

There is a renaissance happening in America. America is looking for a hero and we're not looking for Spiderman. We're looking for actual people that are willing to self-sacrifice who are willing to lose money, to lose position, to lose life, fortune, and sacred honor. That is what America is looking for. Pray that Joe Lieberman and those who are not yet courageous enough to come out, they need Joe Lieberman to be the point man, pray that somehow or the other, whether it is because of the ministry of angels and the founders themselves come down and keep pushing them into who they really are, pray that these men and women find the ability to mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor, because that's what it's going to take and I tell you, it's going to take that in you, as well. It's why I've been saying I am both excited for next year and, quite honestly, terrified of next year because of the direction I'm going. People think that they know where I'm headed and they are going to be quite surprised. It's not going to be a less controversial place than what they think, but it is going to be a different place. I am excited because I feel I have, I feel I know where we need to go. I'm nervous, not because of anything but my gut and my gut tells me -- I'm really bad at time. So, I don't know when, but my gut tells me that those who are willing to stand and are willing to lead -- and I don't put me in that, I put the you in that -- are going to come under tremendous, tremendous pressure, and so are your neighbors and the ones I'm really afraid about are your neighbors, because they don't yet know who you are. Remember who we are. Remember who we are. I've been telling you for over a year, please, read history. Know what you believe. Don't be weak in anything. Know who you are. Know that you can weather every storm.

Next hour I want to share with you a story of a friend of mine I told you about a year ago. He was a friend that first threw me up against a wall and then, about two weeks later, nearly punched me in the face. He stayed with me at my house last weekend, he and his wife. I want to tell you the conversation, the update from a year ago. It's an essential story, I think, to see what possibly is happening in your life soon and an essential story to know and remember who we are.

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."
