Glenn Beck: Healthcare and Massachusetts election

GLENN: The Senate race in Mass is Scott Brown 50, Martha Coakley 46. That is the Suffolk poll. Still within the margin of error.

PAT: There's a couple of other polls that show him with a much wider spread. Like one of them shows him 55 40. Another one shows him up by 9.

GLENN: You know what bothers me about this? Is that Barack Obama went up to Massachusetts anyway and then they are saying that the White House is building expectations that she's going to lose. I it doesn't feel right to me.

PAT: Yeah, it's

GLENN: Doesn't feel right to me.

PAT: It's weird.

GLENN: I don't trust these guys at all.

PAT: It's weird because the president stuck his neck out in both Virginia and New Jersey and got it chopped off. So

GLENN: But you know what?

PAT: Politically speaking.

GLENN: There is a, there is something to say for that. He's got to go up there and give them everything they got because if she doesn't win, here's somebody in trouble. And he's telling everybody in congress, "Hey, I'm going to be there for ya, don't worry, don't worry, you just go ahead and vote for healthcare and I'm going to be there." And then he doesn't go up for a close race like this? I mean, he really is in a

PAT: He's in a tough situation.

GLENN: He's in a lose lose situation here.

STU: Yeah. And from an agenda perspective, it doesn't this doesn't necessarily stop healthcare but it has a chance of stopping healthcare. This is the only

GLENN: When he goes up and campaigns in Ted Kennedy for Ted Kennedy's seat, as they like to call it, and he doesn't even mention healthcare. He didn't even mention it. He's stumping her? He doesn't mention healthcare.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: In Massachusetts.

GLENN: Hello. You see the latest Washington Post poll? The Washington Post is doing a story right now. Poll shows growing disappointment, polarization over Obama's performance. A year into his presidency President Obama faces polarized nation, soaring public assessments of his effort to change Washington, according to a Washington Post ABC News poll. Nearly half of all Americans say Obama is not delivering on his major campaign promises and a narrow majority have some or no confidence that he will make the right decisions for the country's future. A majority now have some or no confidence that he will make the right decision for the country's future. More than a third see the president as falling short of their expectations. About double the proportion saying so at the 100 day mark. 63% say the president has accomplished a great deal or a good amount. Now that portion has dropped to 47%. What it doesn't go into in this, in the news story from the Washington Post, the Washington Post didn't report that their own poll now shows most Americans want smaller government with fewer services. 58% say they favor a smaller government with fewer services and only 38% say they favor a larger government with more services. This is what they're up against. This is why they're jamming it through. The American people are not for any of this. But I you know, when you have the left going for Saul Alinsky and saying, hey, Saul Alinsky's right, Saul Alinsky is right. It doesn't matter. The ends justify the means, do whatever you have to do and then you have people like Ed Schultz getting on television and saying I'd cheat if I had I'd vote nine, ten times if I had to. They will. They will. This is the state where the Kennedys have been in charge for a very long time. Barney Frank. I mean, this is a mini Chicago. This has to be a blowout. For this to actually, for you to be able to count on it, there has to be a 10 point spread.

Susan, you are on the Glenn Beck program.

CALLER: Hello?

GLENN: Hi, Susan, go ahead.

CALLER: Hi, Glenn, how are you?

GLENN: Very good.

CALLER: Good. It was electric yesterday at the Scott Brown rally. There was so many people there that the police had to block off the street. And then he had to set up two satellite buildings to hold everyone that was there. It was just incredible. We were at the Crowne Plaza hotel ballroom and it was packed. You couldn't even move. And I don't even know what it was like in the main rally which was at Mechanic Hall in Worcester.

GLENN: Now, it is supposed to be, it is supposed to be lousy weather tomorrow, right?

CALLER: Tomorrow, for Tuesday? Cloudy. It snowed here last night. So, yeah, the weather's not the best. Doesn't matter. I'll be going.

GLENN: What are you feeling, what are you feeling on the ground with what's her name, Margaret, Martha?

CALLER: Martha.

CALLER: Marsha.

PAT: Marsha, that's what it is.

GLENN: Patrick Kennedy is giving a speech for her, introducing her, calls her the wrong name three times. That's beautiful.

CALLER: Well, they can't even spell Massachusetts right in their ad. So what do you expect?

GLENN: I know. What is the what are the supporters like for Marta?

CALLER: Well, when they were out there yesterday, there was probably 35 or 40 of them across the street from where we were and they were just standing there with signs. They weren't saying anything, they weren't talking back. They were just standing there like robots. It was nothing. We were electric. We were, you know, going for it and they just stood there. And I don't know anyone personally that's going to vote for her. Everyone is so upset about the healthcare. That they are going for him.

GLENN: Well, why is it they are all for the healthcare

CALLER: They are all for him stopping the healthcare.

GLENN: Oh, stopping healthcare.

CALLER: Yeah, they are voting to stop healthcare.

GLENN: Susan, do you believe him?

CALLER: You know, Glenn, he seems like he's a really good guy. My gut tells me that he's sincere. And that's the only thing I can go by. You know, I mean, politicians have lied to us so many times in our lives, what do you do? You just go by your gut feeling. And I get the gut feeling he's sincere. After the rally at Mechanics Hall which is where he was mainly speaking she came to each satellite and talked to each of us and told us thank you for coming out. And the look on his face when he walked into that ballroom was, he was blown away at how many people were there. Now, he's either a really great actor or he's very sincere. I don't know. I can only go by my gut.

GLENN: Well, it's, let's hope for the best, prepare for the worst but hope for the best.

CALLER: Hope for the best, exactly.

GLENN: Thanks a lot, Susan, I appreciate it. I'd like to you know, Stu, can you see if we can get a hold of Scott?

STU: Yeah, we've been efforting.

GLENN: You've been efforting the situation? I'd like to talk to him.

PAT: He at least knows that there's still terrorists in Afghanistan.

STU: That's always a positive.

GLENN: I can't believe that this race is this close.

PAT: Well, you have to remember, though, that she started out 19 or 23 points ahead of him.

STU: Yeah, he has no right being in this race.

PAT: He has, by all rates this should be over before it even started. And she won the Democratic nomination by 19 points. So she's got enormous name recognition. She had everything going for her. She had all the money, she had all the recognition, she has all the

GLENN: She had a great vacation.

PAT: She had a great vacation and apparently that's when he started making headway and then she started making statements like this.

VOICE: If the goal was and the mission in Afghanistan was to go in because we believed that the Taliban was giving harbor to terrorists, we supported that, I supported that goal. They are gone. They are not there anymore.

PAT: And then to call Curt Schilling a Yankees fan as she did over the weekend. Curt Schilling is a Red Sox legend and brought them, you know, the world series title.

GLENN: That's like something I would say.

PAT: Yeah, it is.

GLENN: In what context did she say that?

STU: Is it a joke?

GLENN: He's a supporter of Scott Brown, right?

PAT: Yeah. She was being interviewed and Dan Rhea said, yeah, but she was mentioning that she had, I don't know, somebody on her side. And the guy counters with, yeah, but now Scott Brown has Curt Schilling, okay? To which Coakley said, yeah, another Yankee fan. The interviewer says, Schilling? She says, yes. And he says, Curt Schilling, a Yankee fan? She says, uh oh, no, all right, I'm wrong on I'm wrong.

STU: Oh, wow, yeah.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. Oh, my gosh. I was giving her the benefit of the doubt until, oh, no, wait, no, hang on, no. Not that Curt. I meant another one.

PAT: I meant Schilling from the Schilling the sauce, you know, the

GLENN: The other guy, fat guy.

PAT: You know.

GLENN: You look him up. He's in the phone book under Yankee fan.

PAT: I'm pretty sure. This is Schilling of the Bronx. The Schillings.

GLENN: And I love the fact that they have come out, "The Boston Globe" said that brown is not going to be attending any Mensa meetings at night.

STU: Of course.

GLENN: Well, of course not. They hold them during the day. Are they implying that she will?

STU: Of course. She's smart and he's dumb. D and R. I got it. That's how it works every single election.

GLENN: I can't I mean, how these people just don't see that the game is over. They just don't see that Americans are onto this. Oh, he's dumb? Oh. If you hadn't called half the population dumb, tea partygoers, you are calling half the population dumb. When you do that, they go, well, wait a minute here, I'm not dumb. And then they start to notice everybody else that's dumb and they realize, oh, only the people that agree with the elites are called smart. Oh! The game is over, gang.

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?
