GLENN: I believe we can announce on this program that JD Hayworth's campaign is over. JD Hayworth apparently made an infomercial and I don't know how it took this long to find the infomercial, but it did. Here is a piece of the JD Hayworth infomercial from 2007.

VOICE: $80,000 in grant money and I don't have to pay it back. I'm ecstatic about it.

VOICE: We award this grant for up to $1.3 million back.

VOICE: How much money? I mean, did I hear right, billions?

VOICE: Hundreds of billions.

VOICE: Hundreds of billions of dollars. Wow. Forgive me if I sound like a skeptic because that's a lot of money. Probably too good to be true. Congressman, is it for real?

HAYWORTH: It is for real.

PAT: JD Hayworth.

HAYWORTH: I understand the skepticism in part because President Reagan used to say the greatest contradiction ever uttered was I'm from the government and I'm here to help, but I'm telling you this is really true. About 25 years ago a decision made to get money in the hands of the American people. And though we talk about it as if it's free money, let me remind you. It's not free money. It's your money. It's money you've already surrendered to the government in terms —

GLENN: Stop just a second. That's great. So that company that got the $1.5 million loan —

PAT: That was all his.

GLENN: That was all their money.

PAT: Yeah. Isn't that great?

GLENN: Wow. I didn't know that.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: I thought when I first heard this audio, and there's video that goes with it. I thought it was a parody. I thought it was a spoof.

PAT: No.

GLENN: I thought it was somebody saying, you know, making fun of the system that we have set up. No, no, no.

PAT: No.

GLENN: This is JD Hayworth waving the flag and saying, hey, get that money; it's not free; it's yours.

PAT: It's very Matthew Lesko esque?

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: This guy's done.

STU: It goes on, though. I think it actually gets worse from there.

GLENN: How could it possibly —

STU: Well, because at least at this point he's sort of making a justification of something.

GLENN: Oh, boy. Let it roll.

PAT: Okay. We're going to have to go back to the beginning.

GLENN: Well, that's okay.



JD Hayworth Infomercial: Free money! You never have to pay it back!

VOICE: $80,000 in grant money and I don't have to pay it back. So I'm ecstatic about it.

PAT: Who wouldn't be.

VOICE: This grant for up to $1.3 million, greatest news about that is we don't have to pay it back.

PAT: Great news. Great news.

VOICE: How much money? Did I hear right, billions?

VOICE: Hundreds of billions.

VOICE: Hundreds of billions of dollars? Wow. Forgive me if I sound like a skeptic, but that's a lot of money. Sounds too good to be true. Congressman, is it for real?

HAYWORTH: It is for real. Now, I understand the skepticism in part because President Reagan used to say the greatest contradiction ever uttered was I'm from the government and I'm here to help. But I'm telling you, this is really true. About 25 years ago a decision made to get money in the hands of the American people.

PAT: All right.

HAYWORTH: And though we talk about it as if it's free money, let me remind you.

GLENN: Yes, please.

HAYWORTH: It's not free money.

GLENN: No.

HAYWORTH: It's your money.

GLENN: It's your money.

HAYWORTH: It's money you've already surrendered to the government in terms of taxation.

PAT: It's mine.

HAYWORTH: But the government has a chance and you have a chance to make an investment in yourself and, in fact, improve not only your personal economic situation but put people to work and really help rebuild the economy on your block, in your neighborhood, happening on Main Street instead of Wall Street.

STU: That's Obama's argument for the stimulus package.

VOICE: Like you've always dreamed of. National grants conferences can help you to be your own boss.

PAT: I love these.

VOICE: Send your kids to the best schools. Buy your first home. Renovate your house.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

VOICE: Become an investor. Build wealth.

PAT: I mean, we might as well vote for Don Lapre.

VOICE: — that made $30 to $40 profit in a week and I placed those ads in around 1,000 other newspapers around the country.

GLENN: 1,000 other newspapers. That's how I did it.

VOICE: That's how I generated over $50,000 a week out of my one bedroom apartment. I'll show you some secrets that will make you wish I started doing it five —

GLENN: Buy a bigger apartment, wouldn't you?

PAT: Well, month after month after month, you still make $80,000! And you are still in a tiny one bedroom apartment.

GLENN: That's crazy!

PAT: Why?

GLENN: Because it's not my money. No, it's not. It's my money, not your money! Isn't that right, JD Hayworth?

PAT: Vote for me, Don Lapre. I'll get you hundreds of billions of dollars! But remember it's not the government's money; it's your money.

VOICE: Rebuild the economy day after day by just accepting your own money back from the government.

PAT: Up to $1 1/2 million is available for you to start a small business selling tiny classified ads out of your one bedroom apartment.

GLENN: Keep talking. It's making sense to me. Keep talking. Seriously, I — wait a minute. (Fly buzzing). Why is this guy — oh, yeah, it just landed on my face. Oh, yes. I like it when they wash their hands while landing on my face. Oh.

STU: If you listen to his argument there at the end, he is saying basically if you take money from the government to build your personal economy, it's helping the economy grow and everything.

GLENN: Stimulus, yeah.

STU: That's the stimulus program's argument.

GLENN: It is.

STU: That is Obama's argument for the stimulus package.

PAT: And he was making it back in 2007.

STU: He was! From his one bedroom apartment, he was making arguments about the stimulus.

PAT: I don't think you recover from that. As a conservative I don't think you do.

GLENN: We haven't said anything about the election in Arizona mainly because, I just don't want to get involved. If I have one on, I have to have both of them on, and we've done that in a few states and I just feel uncomfortable inserting myself in these because I don't know. You know. At the state level you know. You know, I can tell you that my gut was saying Mike Lee. I think it was my wife said to me last night. She said, are you for Mike Lee or are you for Bridgewater? And I said, you couldn't tell? And she said, no, I couldn't tell. And I'm like, that's good. I was kind of for Mike Lee but I don't even know on that.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I don't even know on that. And it's really up to you on the local level. We haven't inserted ourself in Arizona, quite honestly one reason is, I mean, you know where I stand on John McCain. What a nightmare that guy is. But JD Hayworth, I mean, is that all you got?

PAT: Tiny classified ads month after month after month! Just place them in newspapers all over the country!

GLENN: Where is Arizona going to go from here? Do they have another option?

PAT: They are going to go with me, JD Hayworth, to a fabulous new swimming pool and a big fat home on the beach. I can show you how. For $29.95. But wait, there's more.

STU: Has anyone heard Hayworth's explanation for this yet? Has he come up with an answer?

PAT: I haven't.

GLENN: He's going to say — I don't know,

PAT: Can he say it in the Don Lapre voice?

GLENN: Yeah. He's going to say, listen, they have been taking your money for a long time! Are you just going to let that money sit in the federal government and go to somebody else?

PAT: No!

GLENN: It's your money! That's why I've been saying take your money back! Take your money back, take your power back! And you can do it by calling me, now!

STU: That's pretty good. I almost want to call, yeah.

PAT: Yeah. Is there a 1 900 line or something I could —

GLENN: I don't know.

PAT: Because I think you could make money from that, too.

GLENN: Yes. 1 866 666 6666.

STU: I would really like to know what his explanation is because that sounds like the direction he would go.

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."
