Glenn Beck: Are you concerned about your freedoms?

The Overton Window, coming Tuesday, June 15

GLENN: The Overton Window, I would love to hear, now that you've had a couple of days to read it, I would love to hear what you are thinking about The Overton Window. You're going to love I think you're going to love the real villain. I think you're going to love the ending. And did you see, Stu, that who was it? Was it Mediaite that they're doing 100 part series.

STU: Yes, they are.

GLENN: They're doing a 100 part review. They're saying it's The Overton Window. If they said they said, if we were doing a 10 part interview or a 10 part review of The Overton Window, you would think it's excessive. So, we're using the The Overton Window, we're saying we're going to do a 100 part review and only do 10 and you'll think, Oh, well, that's not so bad.

STU: Clever.

GLENN: Very clever. So, I read yesterday, I think it was on Mediaite, part 4 of the 100 part series and they had all the things, they went and they started to do the treasure hunt part of the book

STU: Yeah. That was it.

GLENN: Yeah. Because I don't know if you I don't know if we've even said this, but there is at the end of the book, we tell you some of the things that are real and some of the things that are not real in the book. There are things that are in the book that are mind boggling, absolutely mind boggling. The opening scene, somebody is in a phone booth and they're calling and they are saying, wait a minute, wait a minute, I know what's going on. I have to get this information to you quickly and they're no phone booth and they're killed in the phone booth for what they are saying, but they reference something about Donald Rumsfeld. Do we happen to have that Donald Rumsfeld audio of the missing 2 trillion dollars? .

PAT: Let me see.

GLENN: $2 trillion missing. Can you imagine that? Imagine, $2 trillion missing from the Pentagon budget. We don't know where it went

STU: Yeah. Angled he was announcing that as he was ready to fight it. Like, he was announcing a new commission to fight it. He had obviously only been in office for a couple of months, but he was, like, we need to stop this waste. There's $2 trillion missing here.

GLENN: Now, you will read that in the opening scene of The Overton Window and it's just kind of, you know, Donald Rumsfeld says that there's $2 trillion that's missing and, you know, we I think I know what happened to it. At the end of the book, in the last chapter, it goes back and it explains. It shows you what's true and what's not. That's why I call this book ‘Faction’ and the first thing I think we outline is that audio or video of Donald Rumsfeld and we give you the web address and where you can find that. He said that on September 9th, 2001.

STU: Was it 9th or 10th?

GLENN: Oh. Yeah, September 10th, 2001. Do we have it?

PAT: I think so.

VOICE: He said money wasted by the military posing a serious threat.

VOICE: In fact, it could be said that it's a matter of life and death.

VOICE: Rumsfeld promised change, but the next day the world changed. And in the rush to fund the war on terror, the war on waste seems to have been forgotten.

PRESIDENT BUSH: My '03 budget calls for more than $48 million in new defense spending.

VOICE: More money for the Pentagon, when its own auditors admit cannot account for 25 percent of what it already spends.

VOICE: According to some estimates, we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions.

GLENN: Stop. Okay. That happened he made that statement on September 10th. Now, how do you lose $2.3 trillion? Where did I put that checkbook? $2.3 trillion. So

PAT: I mean, that's a $600 toilet seat here, a $1,200 wrench there. You know, that adds up to some real money. Pretty soon it adds up to $2.3 trillion.

GLENN: Wow. That is that is only half I'm sorry. That is what Freddie and Fannie are now going to cost you to, they say, if I can it, is 1 trillion. The entire stimulus was 1 trillion, when all was said and done.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I mean, 2.3 trillion, what happened to it? And that story just went away because of 9/11.

Anyway, The Overton Window, you'll love it and make sure that you give it to somebody for father's day. Dad will love it. And it is also great for your friends who don't really see it yet, you know, people like Bill O'Reilly who I'm going to be out with this weekend. We're going to be in St. Louis and Columbus. Go to to find out information, but I gave it I gave him a copy of the book because he's one of these guys that he would just piece it together, he would get it, but, again, I think I just looks at things separately and he refuses to draw the you know, look at the data points, all of the data points and, again, this is what is happening with the American people when you say, we're headed towards spooky territory, we're headed toward a dictatorship. No, no, they'll tell you. That could never happen. That could never happen. Well, why? Well, because it’s just about oil. Well, before it was just about the car dealer or the car companies and then it was just about the banks. Now it's just about oil. It's always slowly done. You're nudged slowly.

I was frustrated because people don't see it when it happens slowly and the sins of the father coming back, that's what's happening. What are the sins of the father? The sins of the father are us not teaching our children. The sins of a father is us coddling our children, not forcing our children to work, not telling not going along with it. Really, our sins are really more of omission. We have just gone along with it. We've accepted the trophy for participation. We didn't pay attention and we said, Oh, just let along. That's got to stop. It's got to stop right now.

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."
