GLENN: There is a new call for an end to hate speech in talk radio and cable news. It will also then go a step further and ask that you look into some of the websites on the Internet.

PAT: Going to surprise you who's involved.

GLENN: Who's involved in this. 20 different organizations or is it 30 different organizations.

PAT: A bunch, but the front and center one is really going to — it's going to shock you to your core.

GLENN: Well, I would be, I would be shocked if I heard Free Press was involved.

PAT: You would be shocked?

GLENN: I would be.

PAT: First name mentioned.

GLENN: Free Press?

PAT: Prepare to be shocked.

GLENN: That is shocking!

PAT: I know, I know.

GLENN: Shocking. Free Press, in case you don't know, that is a socialist/Marxist organization. They claim to be a socialist/Marxist organization that has now the, I believe the assistant to Genachowski, the guy at the FCC is from Free Press. You now have a new member of the State Department appointed this weekend at Free Press, from Free Press. You have —

PAT: They have no pull in the administration, no pull in the administration.

GLENN: Oh, no, zero pull in the administration at all. These are the people that want net neutrality. This is a dangerous organization.

PAT: Yeah, it's really bad.

GLENN: A dangerous organization.

PAT: And somebody called the Center for Media Justice.

GLENN: Center for Media Justice, media justice.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: So like social justice.

PAT: We have environmental.

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: We have

GLENN: Economic.

PAT: Economic

GLENN: We have social.

PAT: Social, and now media justice.

GLENN: Media justice.

PAT: We got justice coming out the Ying Yang here.

GLENN: No justice, no peace. You know, that phrase has never sounded more ominous, no justice, no peace. Okay. Who else?

PAT: Let's see. The Benton Foundation. I don't know anything about them. And Media Alliance.

GLENN: Oh, Media Alliance. So now you have, you have an investigation for the end of hate speech in talk radio and cable television and some Internet.

PAT: Yeah, and they are arguing about anonymity on the web, giving ammunition to those who would spread hate and so they want to stomach anonymity on the Internet as well.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. You want to make sure that —

PAT: Everybody's named.

GLENN: Everybody's named.

PAT: Want their addresses, phone number.

STU: By the way, guys, you were totally wrong if you were trying to insinuate that the Benton Foundation had any problems. Listen to this. The Benton Foundation works to ensure that media and telecommunications serve the public interest and enhance our democracy.

GLENN: Oh.

PAT: Oh.

STU: They pursue this mission by seeking policy solutions that support the values of access, diversity and equity.

GLENN: Oh.

PAT: Oh, diversity and equity.

GLENN: Is there any justice?

STU: They don't — let's see.

PAT: Please tell me they want justice, too, media justice especially.

GLENN: Social justice, media justice?

STU: They just want to demonstrate the value of media and telecommunications for improving the quality of life for all.

PAT: Of course they do.

GLENN: That is so great. That is — no, I love that. Now, this is a — this is one attack. Then you have the government's attack on Friday, released Friday. When does the government dump stories that they don't want anybody to report on?

PAT: Tuesdays, Tuesday afternoon.

GLENN: No, no, uh uh. Because you could read about it

PAT: Monday morning at, like, 10:00.

GLENN: No, because then you could see it all week and you would see it in the newspapers and then the newspapers chew on it all week.

PAT: So they wait until Wednesday?

GLENN: No. Uh uh. Friday. You know what was special about last Friday? It was before a three day weekend.

PAT: Really?

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah, that's what usually — for instance, Van Jones. Van Jones, him leaving the White House and the whole story? Because it was released on Saturday night, it missed the Sunday paper and only got just a little story in Monday's because it was already an old story by Monday, of course. And that was a holiday. Strange. Now the FTC, the Federal Trade Commission, is looking into bringing in AmeriCorps and training AmeriCorps as journalists.

PAT: That's such a good idea.

GLENN: It is. It is.

PAT: Oh, man, that's a good idea.

GLENN: You know who had that idea?

PAT: Yes!

GLENN: Who had that idea?

PAT: Free Press!

GLENN: Free Press had that idea?

PAT: If I'm not mistaken.

GLENN: That is crazy! I mean, we were just talking about — hmmm?

PAT: When they said this?

VOICE: We need policies to support media, and I hate to break it to some of you, but the government is going to have to be involved.

PAT: Huh.

VOICE: So what if instead we took a few AmeriCorps jobs and gave them to news gathering organizations.

GLENN: That is so strange.

PAT: How weird.

GLENN: That guy who said that, he is the guy now working at the State Department appointed this weekend.

PAT: Stop it.

GLENN: No, I won't. It's true.

PAT: This is a small world. What a small, small, small world.

GLENN: What a strange coincidence. It's a small world, after all.

PAT: The Obama administration seems to know everybody action don't they?

GLENN: They do.

PAT: And just kind of circle them into their little inner circle.

GLENN: Well, there's only so many people you can pick from.

PAT: I guess so.

GLENN: It is so weird. So you've got the hate speech investigation, you have, of course, the FTC saying that they just think AmeriCorps should be involved now.

PAT: Good idea.

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."
