Glenn Beck: Dems still blaming Bush

GLENN: According to a new poll out, President Barack Obama and the Democrats own the bailout and the economy now, which I guess is why John Kerry was out this weekend. He was out this weekend saying, "You know it's really unfair to the president that people now are starting to say that George Bush didn't start all this." Who was saying that, that he didn't start all this? Just saying it's time to get over, it's time to grow a set.

STU: I don't think he started it by any means, but he didn't stop it, which is what we were hoping he would do.

PAT: Accelerated it.

STU: Yes. And that's not, that's not good.

PAT: No.

STU: But we've seen a further acceleration of that to a level that no one except for maybe Glenn has ever imagined.

GLENN: I did.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: And I'm imagining what's coming next, and it ain't good. Now deflation is coming. Inflation was coming if they could start the whole thing, but they can't restart the engine. So now deflation is coming. Now a second ‑‑ what happened to us already where you, you know, where your home value went down, you lost that and everything else? That's coming again from this point, and what they are going to do is they are going to immediately throw in more dollars and more money to stimulate, to hold it up, to prop it up and everything else.

They are talking now about Fannie and Freddie, $1 trillion. That doesn't cover Fannie and Freddie. That just, that's a Band‑Aid on Fannie and Freddie. A trillion dollars in Band‑Aid for Freddie and Fannie. And so now, I mean, how do you get out of this? How do you possibly get out of this? You don't, not with ‑‑ you get out of this with the genius of the American people. That's how you get out of it. You have to reinvent your way out. How are you going to pay all of these debts off?

Do you know, I think it's by next year 43 cents on every dollar will be borrowed? That's incredible. And we haven't even hit the ‑‑ I'm just looking ‑‑ I'm sorry, ADD boy. Inflation will remain subdued over the next three years. Bernanke is now saying this live. Yeah, how about, how about deflation, Ben? How about deflation?

Does anybody have a doubt that if we just let people do their job that we would go through rough times but we would get our way out of this? Do you have any doubt in your mind that the genius of the American people would create something new that would get us out? I find it amazing that green jobs, we know they don't work because we watched Spain, yet we're doing them. Healthcare, we know it doesn't work because we watched every country but most recently England. It doesn't work, yet we're doing it. Giant pensions, we know it doesn't work with a whole bunch of people on a federal payroll because we're watching Greece and yet we're doing it. What... what game plan are we working off of? I mean, I can't think of ‑‑ Democrats, I'm asking you, what game plan are you working on? Have you answered the charge, "Well, wait a minute, that didn't work in England, so what's the difference here? Well, wait a minute, that doesn't work in grease, so what's the difference here? Well, wait a minute, that didn't work in Spain but what's the difference here?" Answer that. If you can answer that and you say, oh, well, because, you know, Tim Geithner has... flying magic monkeys in his butt and they are going to fly out at any point and they are going to sprinkle the pixie dust all over things."

STU: I don't think that would work at all. That seems completely unbelievable.

GLENN: Quite honestly that gives me more hope than the plan we're on. At least I have some hope. I feel like, "Wait a minute, wait a minute, the flying monkeys are going to come out of his butt any minute."

STU: Isn't this a matter of faith, Glenn? You just talked about the genius of the American people and they talk about that, too. They just talk about the genius of their government.


STU: Of Barack Obama, of Tim Geithner.


STU: Of Ben Bernanke, all these people. They put their faith in the genius of the elected officials or some of them unelected to run things.

GLENN: Can I ask you, where does genius come from? Where does genius come from? How are people ‑‑ what is the mother of invention?

STU: Necessity.

PAT: Necessity.

GLENN: Necessity is the mother of ‑‑ so when something is necessity, when something is pressing down on people, that's when genius kicks in. Somebody says, "Well, wait a minute, I can fix that." You know the thing with socialism? It never lets anybody really fail. It just traps you in this zone like we're in right now where you are like, well, I can't really do anything about it. I can't really do that. I mean, if I went and I risked it all, the government could change all the rules and so I could lose it all and not gain on the upside, either, because they will never really let me have an upside, either, because if I have the upside, well, then they will just take it all. So one way or another I lose. So I guess I'll just stand here and wait for something to happen. And so genius isn't allowed to kick in because you are trapped in this mediocrity. You are trapped in exactly ‑‑ this is as good as it gets, gang. Under socialism this is as good as it gets.

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."
