Glenn Beck: Worst President since Herbert Hoover?

GLENN: There's a new age of regulation coming. The United States has posted a new budget deficit. $82.69 billion in the April.

PAT: Oh, that's not bad.

GLENN: Well, —

PAT: That's not bad. That's not trillion, right?

GLENN: It's only four times the budget shortfall from last April.

PAT: That stinking Bush.

GLENN: No, those are both —

PAT: Oh, that George W. Bush.

GLENN: No, that was at the height of every — we're past it all now. We're at the height last year when we were bailing everything out and

PAT: Well, no, they inherited. They inherited this problem, right?

GLENN: The $20.91 billion shortfall, that was the excuse.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Well, what is the, what is the record $82.69 billion, four times last year?

PAT: Well —

GLENN: By the way, it was more than twice the $40 billion deficit that the Wall Street economists surveyed by Reuters had forecast. Twice the size of what every, what every expert said and was striking since April marks the filing deadline for individual income taxes that are the main source of government revenue. So in other words, this is the month we make our most money and we still had four times the budget deficit for the month. In prior years there was a surplus in April 43 out of the past 56 years. The government now has posted 19 consecutive monthly budget deficits, the longest string of shortfalls on record.

PAT: Well, look. What I have said in the past is...

GLENN: (Laughing).

PAT: They inherited a problem that was far bigger than they imagined and this problem was just so big, they had to do some — they didn't want to do these things. They don't want to spend this money. They had to. They had to to save, to pull us back from the brink of the economic collapse.

GLENN: Why is it I don't believe any of that?

PAT: This notion that he's caused a problem four times the size of George Bush...

GLENN: Now, he has, he has now done a couple of things here. He's — they have just interviewed — just introduced and Barack Obama has come out, the new cap and trade bill and he want they don't call it cap and trade, they don't call it climate bill. They are calling it America's power bill?

PAT: Power bill.

GLENN: Power act. And it is all about power, believe me. In this bill it talks extensively about the carbon exchange. We're exposing that now in Crime, Inc. In the bill they also offer incentives for Americans to move overseas for jobs. The new energy bill, the new power bill offers incentives for Americans to leave America and go overseas for a job. They pay for relocation costs. I'm sorry. What? In this bill they also — because remember, this is a jobs creating bill. Well, if it's a jobs creation bill, that's fantastic. It is. I told you that this bill has been tried or this kind of idea, cap and trade, been tried over in Europe, fails miserably. In Spain you lose two jobs for every one job you create.

STU: Don't spin it, Glenn. It's 2.2 jobs you lose for every job you create.

GLENN: I'm sorry. Thank you, Stu. It's failed miserably. Maybe that's why also in this bill it increases the time that you can collect unemployment and healthcare, all covered by the United States government. Plus the incentives of moving overseas if you can find a job some place else. What are we doing here? We are watching the systematic dismantling of the United States of America, period. That's all it is. We're not even talking about Republicans and Democrats anymore. We're talking about the survival of our country. And tonight at 5:00 I'm putting together the chalkboards, you will see it, All the President's Men. And I'm going to show you what all of these people believe, what all of these people have said and how it's all now fitting together.

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."
