Glenn Beck: Can you say conflict of interest?

GLENN: Okay, so I haven't figured this out. Let me go to, let me go to Pat and ask him. Pat, have you noticed that Toyota is testifying now in front of congress?

PAT: I have.

GLENN: Mmm hmmm.

PAT: Mmm hmmm.

GLENN: Isn't congress the owner with the American people of Toyota's two big competitors?

PAT: Yes. Yes, they are.

GLENN: So isn't this like the board of directors of General Motors calling Toyota to testify in front of them on television and demanding that they explain why their cars are so bad?

PAT: Oh, and they're angry, too. They're, they are outraged about this situation.

GLENN: Are they?

PAT: Yeah. Oh, yeah. As you could imagine let's say I mean, if ExxonMobil called Shell to testify before them, they are a little upset with their business practices.

GLENN: Have you heard anyone talk about this yet?

PAT: No. No, I haven't.

GLENN: How come?

PAT: I don't know.

GLENN: How is that completely missed?

PAT: Everybody's talking about just the, you know, the brakes and the acceleration and all of those things and nobody's ever seemed to even notice: Oh, and by the way, these are the owners of GM and Chrysler and they are taking another competitor.

GLENN: These are the people that are running it, these are the people that own it, these are the I mean, we have don't you see the moral hazard that we're in now? Our congress has no credibility when they call, for instance, any bank to testify. You are going to call let's say they call a collection of small local banks to testify. Who are you to tell me this? You're the competitor. You are CitiBank. You are trying to put us out of business. You are Bank of America. Who are you to call me, Toyota? I mean, this is the quite honestly this is the attitude I would take. I mean, you wouldn't win and my shares would fall and, you know, Toyota would be out of business, but that's why I'm not running Toyota! But that would be the attitude I would take. Who are you? The owners of General Motors and Chrysler? And you're telling me to explain myself in front of you? You are my competitor!

PAT: It would at least be worth bringing up, wouldn't it? I mean, if you didn't even say it with a nasty attitude, could you at least bring up the inappropriateness of the whole procedure?

GLENN: Yes, I think you could. I think you could.

STU: There's a story in The Wall Street Journal today, too, talking about how these cases of recalls are typically handled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, but the Toyota case was led by Obama transportation secretary Ray LaHood. If it's going to be coming from the normal area and the journal goes into, too, about how a lot of people who have big union money are all the people calling for all this. That's not to say that Toyota didn't do something wrong and that they should you know, they obviously had some serious problems there but the way it's going down

GLENN: What is the problem? Because they seem to have first they had first they had gas. Then they had brakes.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Then they had something else.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: That's odd that Toyota's having all of these problems.

PAT: All of a sudden.

STU: Yeah, I think it's an all of the above thing and I don't think that they are denying they are having the problems.

GLENN: No, no, I'm not saying they are denying at all and I'm not saying they are having the problems.

PAT: But this all goes to your point, Glenn, in the inappropriateness because the government got themselves into the situation. Their credibility is gone. And so to have these kind of moral authority, who are you?

GLENN: They have none. This is, you know, an impossible, impossible situation now.

Now, I just want to throw something out here. Apparently it's a chip problem. Have we verified this yet?

PAT: They don't know.

GLENN: That it's a brain problem in the car. We had a we have a watchdog who is at one of the bigger software chip manufacturers in the world and this guy's pretty I mean, he is an "Out there" thinker, but he's pretty reliable. This is a theory only. He said, you know, you can fry those chips. You can deprogram those chips, and it's an odd thing that those chips would have these problems if this indeed is the problem. There is now a theory that is going on that some competitor took and this is corporate sabotage.

PAT: So somebody's, like, shooting some sort of ray gun at these people?

GLENN: I don't know. Whoa. You have a ray gun?

PAT: I have a ray gun.

GLENN: Holy cow.

PAT: I disabled the brakes on 1400 cars.

GLENN: Turn your radio off if you're driving!

PAT: 812 now.

GLENN: The ray gun is getting you!

PAT: 3,282 cars.

GLENN: Stop, stop!

PAT: 4806 cars are now in trouble.

GLENN: What model? What model?

PAT: All models, all makes appeared models.

GLENN: All right. So

PAT: Just, it's in a certain city. I'm not going to even name which one.

GLENN: Holy cow.

PAT: That's 5,312 cars now.

GLENN: So here is the, here is the idea, that a competitor is this is corporate espionage or corporate sabotage. Somebody's going in and disabling these chips. I don't know if that is a legitimate theory at all.

PAT: Now, is this theory by competitor, is he talking about, you know, GM and Chrysler?

GLENN: I have no idea. No, no, I have no idea. He is not assigning a blame anywhere. He is not assigning. He is just saying that this can be done. If it is a brain problem with the car, it can be done. It could be a competitor that took Toyota out.

STU: I guess anything's possible. Doesn't seem particularly plausible.

GLENN: You know, I don't know if it's I mean, he wasn't suggesting this, that it was, you know, it was Van Jones at night with the... with the ray gun in the library! He's not, you know, he's not suggesting that, nor am I. But when you get into a competitive situation, you want to make sure that our government never, ever looks like they are using something to help themselves. And now congress is on the hook for GM. Nobody by highlighting Toyota's problems, they are helping American made cars. By highlighting Toyota's problems, nobody notices that the guy who helped Rahm Emanuel make $16 million in a separate deal, who didn't have any car experience at all and then later Rahm Emanuel pushes up the ladder and gets him to be the CEO of General Motors just got a $9 million bonus. For what? Is General Motors fixed? Are they I mean

STU: It's getting fixed quickly with this news.

GLENN: Oh, it's fixed.

STU: Isn't this a great lesson to

GLENN: Like my dog has been fixed.

STU: Isn't this a great lesson, too, for environmentalists, I mean actual real environmentalists? Environmentalists, the hero of government and environmentalism was Toyota. And the bottom line is when it comes down to government power and money, that's going to trump your cute little leaf on your dashboard. Like it doesn't if you might be really the person who's out there fighting for a greener planet but the government, when they when it comes down to their pocket books and their power, you are going to become a pariah to them. You are going to become the enemy whenever they can make you the enemy if it comes down to money and power.

GLENN: Remember, remember when we talked about 24 a couple of days ago and we said look what was happening on 24?

STU: Uh huh.

GLENN: And everybody was always like, "Oh, no, no, okay, sure, my ex boyfriend beat me up and I went to jail because of him. But if I just help him this one time, he'll leave me alone"? No. Congress is your ex boyfriend that used to beat you up. That's who congress is. They will never change their stripes. It is government, as George Washington says, is a necessary evil. These guys will always that's why there's restraints on power. They will always go bad. Just know that going in. That's why we restrain their power. That's why we keep them as small as we can. That's why we have checks and balances. Once you get rid of the checks and balances, these guys are going to run roughshod over everything.

STU: Yeah, you don't want to let anyone get power like that into the wrong hands just like you don't want to let a ray gun get into the wrong hands.

GLENN: Jeez, how many

PAT: 6,497 vehicles.

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."
