Glenn Beck: Senator Graham hearts Cap & Trade

Nancy Graham?

What happens when you morph Lindsey Graham and Nancy Pelosi? The results are not pretty...

GLENN: Let's see. I want to talk a little bit about Lindsey Graham. Lindsey Graham is on the phone with Rahm Emanuel several times a week, this according to the, what was the source we found this morning? Was it associated press that was saying that Lindsey Graham is visiting the White House, is the top Republican visiting Rahm Emanuel at the White House. Lindsey Graham. And he talks to Rahm Emanuel all the time. Well, that's good. I'm glad that they can help each other out. Seriously. But Lindsey Graham is there because he's just not going to carry the water for the Republicans anymore. He is going to carry the water for the American people and that's why he's working on global warming. Lindsey Graham, certainly not a progressive. No, no, no. He is just not going to carry the water for the Republican Party anymore. And as you all know, that water used to be a bucket of snow. But because of global warming which doesn't exist anymore apparently, it's now water and he's going to carry it for the American people. And if anybody tries to take that water from him, why, he'll fine them. And if they try to take it away in a big SUV, he will tax that SUV and all the carbon that's involved there. He said now that global warming, cap and trade I love this as we know it is over. Oh, as we know it. What exactly does that mean, Nancy Graham Lindsey Graham? Kind of a cross between somebody with common sense and Nancy Pelosi. Nancy Graham. What does that mean, cap and trade as we know it is over?

STU: I think I can answer this if you'd like to finish the rest of the quote.

GLENN: Go ahead.

STU: Cap and trade as we know it this is a quote from Lindsey, Nancy Graham. Quo: Cap and trade as we know it is dead, but the issue of cleaning up the air and energy independence should not die, and you will never have energy independence without pricing carbon. This is in the same article where

GLENN: That is so weird. Because I remember Enron saying the same thing.

STU: And this is in the same article in which he supposedly proposes a carbon tax.

GLENN: What's wrong with that? What's wrong with a carbon tax from a Republican? What's wrong with a giant, bloated system that you'll never get out from under that can control and wield its power to destroy and build up any way it pleases?

PAT: Nothing. There's nothing wrong with that.

GLENN: I mean, that's progress. We're progressing right to you know, we're marching, it's the march of progress really. We're progressing right into something just fantastic. I wonder if anybody like Nancy Graham would like to ask the question of themselves and then answer it. Progress means that you're moving toward something. You're moving away from something. I know what we're moving away from, the Constitution. Because that is what progressives designed the system to do: Move away from the old antiquated living, breathing document of the Constitution. The republic is an old antiquated, dusty idea.

So I know what we're moving away from, but what are we moving towards? Because at some point you arrive. At some point people have gotten so far out of control that you just have to finally just regulate everything because they just can't do it on their own.


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."
