Lieberman update

(Selling Out Your Country update.)

Glenn: This is not a surprise, not a surprise.

Pat: No. He does it every time.

Stu: Almost every time.

Glenn: He's always done it once and I gave him the benefit of the doubt earlier today, that Joe Lieberman would who stand

Stu: He didn't last a day!

Pat: He didn't even last

Stu: He didn't last the morning!

Pat: He's done. (Mumbling.)

Stu: It's that quick!

Glenn: He's there.

Stu: He's going to vote.

Glenn: He's going to vote for it.

Pat: Here's the beauty. He didn't even change his mind. He was completely consistent the entire time.

Stu: Completely consistent.

Pat: As he always is.

Glenn: Play a little bit of the statement. Here's his statement.

Voice: in Washington, where Senator Joe Lieberman is talking about health care. Let's listen in.

Lieberman: The so called public option, government run insurance program is out and the Medicare buy in, which I thought would jeopardize Medicare, cost taxpayers billions of dollars, increase our deficit, is out, and there's no other chance to bring things like that in, then I'm I'm going to be in a position where I can say I'm getting to a position where I can say where I wanted to say all along, that I'm ready to vote for health care reform. My whole point has been here that the President laid out a couple of big goals for this process. Costs are down for individuals, families, businesses, our government, our economy of health care and, secondly, bring a lot of people in who can't afford health insurance now. The basic core bill does that. I think some of the other things were going to add to our debt, increase taxes.

Glenn: Okay. Hang on just a second. So, how are we getting it? How are we getting it? What are we getting? What are we getting?

Pat: You've got me.

Glenn: What is in the bill, then?

Pat: You've got me. No public option, no Medicare buy in, just perfection and awesomeness.

Glenn: So, what is it? What is it that doesn't cost anything yet, covers everyone, and reduces, reduces Medicare?

Pat: And reduces cost.

Stu: Because he was worried about if it went through Medicare, it would ruin Medicare and cost too much, but now that it's not called Medicare, it not going to cost anything. It's going to save us money.

Pat: Now it's free.

Stu: Now it's free. It's negative money.

Pat: Somebody is paying us money. I don't know who, but somebody's paying us money to vote for this thing.

Glenn: Was it the pressure? Was it the pressure? I mean, I know what I know what it was. I mean, this is where Joe Lieberman and I had a falling out and Joe Lieberman and I are friends and we respected each other, but I I really believe that Joe Lieberman left his honor at the door at the Monica Lewinsky story. Joe and I were friends. I mean, it was not like we were hanging out where each other, you know, taking walks on Saturday, but we were friendly and respected each other. Joe Lieberman helped me get into Yale. And I said to Joe Lieberman during the Monica Lewinsky story, Joe, very few people have the right message at the right time. Character does matter. You are the linchpin here. If you do the right thing, the rest will follow you. And I gave him Profiles of Courage and he pushed it back on the table at me. And we were off the air. This was a personal note. And he said, I've read it. And I said, I want you to read it one more time. And I shoved it back to him, and he walked out and didn't take Profiles of Courage with him. And we all know what he did at that time. He gave a tough speech, but he caved. And I'm convinced you'll be the first Jewish vice president nominee. You, sir, will be the vice presidential nominee under Al Gore. I'm convinced that's the deal that happened. I have no evidence of that. I just feel it. The only time Joe Lieberman he has found himself in critical positions many times. One time he has stood and he has stood with our troops and he's paid a great price, but that's the one time. Every other time Joe Lieberman folds like a house of cards. He folds. I gave him the benefit of doubt on this one, but I shouldn't have. Here he is again. He folds. I asked Senator Lieberman, Where in the Constitution do you find this, sir? Where? Answer the question. Don't tell me about you have Constitutional scholars. Don't tell me about, well, how this has to be done or how this is deficit neutral. Answer the question. Where in the Constitution do you find this, sir? If you cannot, then do your damn job to protect the Constitution. These people in Washington are shaping the Constitution instead of allowing the Constitution to shape the country. It's backwards and wrong.

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?
