Glenn Beck: Pelosi hasn't drained the swamp

The Overton Window, a thriller by Glenn Beck

GLENN: Well, it's like President Obama saying that Charlie Rangel should just step down. He's very concerned now. He's very concerned now about the ethics charges.

PAT: Well, it's only been three years.

GLENN: It's only been three years.

PAT: It's taking a while for it to sink in.

GLENN: That's all it's been.

PAT: Yeah. And now he's concerned.

GLENN: And now what he's trying to do is give Mr. Rangel an opportunity to bow out gracefully instead of getting the slap on the wrist for things that you and I would be in jail for.

PAT: Oh, you know what they could do to this guy?

GLENN: Oh, no, what could they do?

PAT: They could actually censure you.

GLENN: Shut up.

PAT: No, they could.


PAT: They could do that.

GLENN: Now, you'd be in jail, right?

PAT: No, no, but you'd be ashamed.

GLENN: No, no. You'd be in jail.

PAT: I would be.

GLENN: You'd be in jail.

PAT: Of course I would be.

GLENN: Sure.

PAT: Of course, I would have been in jail three years ago.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: But Charlie won't be in jail.

GLENN: Sure, no.

PAT: But he'll feel naughty for a few minutes.

GLENN: Yeah. Well

PAT: He'll feel naughty.

GLENN: Now Maxine Waters is also in trouble.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: And I didn't see this one coming.

PAT: No.

GLENN: Did you see this one coming?

PAT: Not at all.

GLENN: Now, what did she do?

PAT: Well, I don't know.

GLENN: Ethics violations.

PAT: Ethics violations, of course.

GLENN: This is the deal on the bank in Boston. Remember her husband owned stock in this bank and she was I think on the board of this bank and do you remember, the people came this was, what, two years ago? This was right after TARP and people came in and they were like, "Hey, so maybe we should have a bailout, they didn't qualify for it and they were like, yes, yes, Maxine says yes. So that might be something you should look into maybe a year and a half ago.

PAT: Well, this is all part of Nancy Pelosi's promise to drain the swamp.

GLENN: Oh, really?

PELOSI: Drain the swamp means to turn this congress into the most honest and open congress in history. That is my pledge. That is what I intend to do.

GLENN: That is her pledge. No, it is.

PAT: That's her pledge.

GLENN: She's going to get some diamond encrusted ice picks and she's going to go and take some of the ice down at Chelsea Clinton's wedding. I mean, which one is more believable?

PAT: I think the ice picks.

GLENN: I think the ice picks are.

PAT: The diamond encrusted ice picks.

GLENN: I think they are, believe it or not, more believable.

PAT: Because I didn't believe Pelosi at all that she was totally going to drain the swamp. I totally believe that, you know, Stu's diamond encrusted ice pick story.

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.

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."
