PAT: Glenn, I'm in the weather center now and we have

VOICE: And now, scattered showers of journalism.

GLENN: Let me go to now our journalistic weatherman Pat Gray who is sensing some sort of

PAT: Scattered showers breaking out.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: A little journalism occurred yesterday during the press conference, the White House press conference with Robert Gibbs.

GLENN: All right, let's see what's on the radar.

Q: During the campaign, President Obama on numerous occasions said words to the effect of, quoting one, “all of this will be done on C SPAN in front of the public.” Do you agree that the President is breaking an explicit campaign promise?

GIBBS: You know Chip, we covered this yesterday and I would refer you to yesterday’s transcript.

Q: (Inaudible) today?

GIBBS: The answer I would give today is similar to the one…

Q: There was an intervening meeting in which it’s been reported that the President, the President pressed the leaders in Congress to take the fast track approach to skip the conference committee. Did he do that?

GIBBS: The President wants to get a bill to his desk as quickly as possible.

Q: In spite of the fact that he promised to do this on C SPAN?

GIBBS: I would refer you to what we talked about in this room yesterday.

Q: But the President, in this meeting yesterday, pressed for something that’s in direct violation of a promise he made during the campaign.

GIBBS: And I addressed that yesterday.

Q: Well does the President believe it would be more helpful if this process were more transparent, that the American people could see…

GIBBS: How many stories do you think NBC has done on this?

Q: Speaking for myself, hundreds…

GIBBS: Hundreds?

Q: That’s not the issue, the issue is whether he broke an explicit campaign promise.

GIBBS: So the answer is hundreds. Is that correct?

Q: Well that has nothing to do with it. I deal with the information, however much or little of it there is. I’m saying, would people benefit from more information?

GIBBS: Have you lacked information in some of those stories? Do you think you’ve reported stuff that was inaccurate based on the lack of information?

Q: Democrats ran against the very sort of process that is being employed in this health care debate.

GIBBS: We had this discussion yesterday. I answered this yesterday. Is there anything else?

GLENN: Listen to this, man.

GIBBS: And he will do some today. Do you have another comment? Okay.

PAT: Even CBS and NBC are getting fed up. I mean, they actually pressed him. They actually pressed him.

GLENN: This is the time that I warned, and we're not there yet but we're approaching it. We are approaching it. This is the time that I warned that Barack Obama is a man behind the mask. And at some point like Mission Impossible, he is going to pull off the proverbial mask. He's not a guy who has been I mean, you see him. Whenever anybody pushes him just a little bit, he goes crazy. He goes nuts. The press is going to start pushing and pushing and pushing. His poll numbers are down. His programs are starting to fall apart and be exposed. I mean, just look at the papers every day. Look at the front page of Drudge every single day. How many times do you not read the front page of Drudge and just go, oh, my gosh. It's all coming apart. You know, play this. Play this again. I mean, play the audio again. I think we need to add one thing because this is go ahead. Here's Gibbs. As you're hearing this...

VOICE: During the campaign the president on numerous occasions

GLENN: I mean, if we need to add a sound track, it would be this.

VOICE: all of this will be done on C Span in front of the public. Do you agree that the president is breaking an explicit campaign promise?

GIBBS: You know Chip, we covered this yesterday and I would refer you to yesterday’s transcript.

Q: (Inaudible) today?

GIBBS: The answer I would give today is similar to the one…

Q: There was an intervening meeting in which it’s been reported that the President, the President pressed the leaders in Congress to take the fast track approach to skip the conference committee. Did he do that?

GIBBS: The President wants to get a bill to his desk as quickly as possible.

GLENN: Isn't it kind of like, Gibbs is kind of like, "I think there might be some sharks in the water. Is that a fin I saw?" Pretty soon you just expect Gibbs just to go down behind the podium just kind of like... and pop back up. (Laughing). I mean, it is and it's good to see.

PAT: It is.

GLENN: That the press is starting to actually do their job, and it's almost like, you know, they're a little concerned every time that they meet the press. It's not like, hey, it was good to see you last night. Wasn't that movie great? It was so great you guys taking me out to avatar last night. I mean, it's nice so see that there is a little pushback.

PAT: And Gibbs isn't used to it. So when it happens, he really shows his true colors. Like, what? I'm not telling you anything.

STU: When you say true colors, do you mean incompetence?

PAT: Yes.

STU: Because he is not good at the position he holds.

PAT: He's awful.

GLENN: He's not been challenged, either.

STU: Right.

GLENN: None of these people in this administration.

STU: Some of them have, some of them have challenged Gibbs.

GLENN: But not together. They have not ganged, not gang attacked.

PAT: No, it's been mostly Jake Tapper and, you know, Major Garrett.

STU: Scattered showers. Yeah, Major Garrett definitely.

GLENN: The question is, the question is when a press conference becomes hostile or when a press conference becomes like it should be, like it even was under George W. Bush, when they actually start to ask this president and back him up to a wall and not allow him to get away with blatant lies, how does this president react? We've never seen him in that situation before.

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?
