GLENN: Let me go to the audio of Andy Stern now. Andy Stern is the guy from SEIU. Let me play now the audio of his plan of what America looks like. And I ask every single union member to ask yourself the question. When you're listening to him, is this the America that I understand.

STERN: We created global trade, we created global finance. We created global companies, but we forgot to create a global government.

GLENN: Stop!

PAT: Oh, darn it.

GLENN: Got it? Global government. We've created all this stuff but not global government.

STU: We forgot.

GLENN: Yeah, we forgot that. Are you into global government union members, are you into global government? Because that's what's coming. Because the unions need to have a global government to be able to have global employees.

STERN: or global regulators as (inaudible) is talking about now. I happened to be at Davos and I say they are going to rename this year's Davos as the revenge of the countries over the companies. Because all of a sudden we realized we let Global Capitalism run amok and reap global regulation and today we began the process in London of actually putting in place those regulations. So

GLENN: Stop for a second. Do you believe that companies are evil and bad? I believe that companies can be bad but I don't think Microsoft is bad, I don't think Google has been bad. Gosh, I don't even think that General Motors was bad when it was promoting jobs and building great cars, I don't think that was bad. May have done bad things. I don't think Wal Mart is bad, do you? Companies are bad.

PAT: You know who is? ExxonMobil.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Shell.

GLENN: They have only been powering the world.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: That's all they have been doing

PAT: Yeah. But with oil.

GLENN: is making sure that we don't live in the stone age.

PAT: With oil, Glenn.

GLENN: I know. It's awful.

STERN: We have a new metric. The president says he wants to judge the new economy, whether it increases the number of people in the middle class, whether we have shared prosperity, not just whether we have growth, which is

GLENN: Stop. Got it? We have a new metric. Do we have shared prosperity? You are right, that is a new metric. We've never had that metric before. Had it in the Soviet Union but not here.

STERN: that we've seen in the country of today.


STERN: Now, how do we distribute wealth in the country? And this is sort of my last big point. And clearly government has a major opportunity to distribute wealth.

GLENN: Sure, to distribute wealth.

STERN: Through tax policies, through minimum wages, through living wages, the government has a role

GLENN: Hmmm, living wages.

STERN: in distributing wealth or social benefits like Medicare, Medicaid, certain health insurance.

GLENN: There you go. A global government that distributes wealth and a new metric. Who's in the middle class? That's fantastic. I mean, it's awfully darn Lenin of them, maybe Mao, touch of Marx. All coming soon, just a little bit of Stalin. But I don't hear James Madison there. I don't hear comes Jefferson. I don't hear George Washington. I don't hear Ben Franklin? Does anyone? Is this the country we are? Because these are the people that are controlling healthcare. These are the people that have written the healthcare plans. If you think that tomorrow the president is going to come out and say, "Hey, I got something really great, you guys are going to love it, and it's got tort reform," if you don't think it has some of this new metric to it, you are fooling yourself.

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."
