Glenn's voting guide

Insider Extreme is the ONLY place Glenn will be on Election Night! Complete details...

GLENN: We are a week and one day away from what should be a historic election. And I say what should be because I'm actually concerned.

I had dinner with some friends over the weekend, and two people told me they're not sure if they're going to vote. They're not sure if they're going to vote. And

PAT: What is this, like 1991 or something? Is it

GLENN: I don't know.

PAT: 1981? How can you not be sure you're going to vote?

GLENN: You ready for this? My wife actually said, well, honey, I don't even know. How do you even trust these people? How do you trust these people? I mean, I sat at the dinner table and I looked around and I said, is this a joke on me? Seriously is this a "joke on Glenn" night? How do you mean you don't know who to I don't know how you trust people, either. I really look, I'm in Connecticut. I know one thing: Do not vote for Dick Blumenthal. That's the one thing I do know. I know who this guy is. This guy is a guy who will just I mean, he's the chief law enforcement officer and he'll just, he'll just disregard the law. He'll just do whatever's popular. Don't vote for that guy. Linda McMahon? What do I know about her?

PAT: She's not Dick Blumenthal.

GLENN: That's exactly right. She's not Dick Blumenthal. Can I trust her? I don't know. Can I trust Dick? No. No, I can't. No, I can't.

PAT: Yeah. It's a in that race that's where we I'm not sure we got the best candidate in the primary, but you know what? I know she's better than Dick Blumenthal.

GLENN: Let's try in California. You've got Jerry Brown.

PAT: Enough said.

GLENN: Jerry Brown. Now, what's her, what's her face, Meg Whitman, she seems like a delightful person, but do you trust her? Is she, is she another Arnold Schwarzenegger? Could be. Could be. Is that good? Nope. But she's not Jerry Brown. I mean, what part of this don't we understand? Now, look, you may be lucky enough that in your area there may be a Tea Party candidate. There may be somebody and, you know, you may look at them and say, I don't know; they're not very smart or they're not very polished or they're not whatever. You need to send people into Washington that have tasers on them. Because the people in Washington look, we've already lost the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party is over. It's over. It is the Progressive Party. It is the party of the uber left. It is the Democratic Socialists of America. That's what it is. You can deny it all you want but I mean, you know, it's only your it's only your loss. I mean, just, you're just denying reality. And what happened? You had the progressives in there that were still undercover, who were still just like, oh, you know, we're just like you. And I remember Michael Moore sitting in the presidential box. It was during the John Kerry election. And I said, Democrats, what are you doing? You think you are using them as fuel. You're wrong. They're using you, and they will seize control of your party. And that's exactly what happened. Well, now the same thing, the battle for the soul of the Republican Party is there. You've got people like Lindsey Graham and John McCain who are exactly what the progressives on the right say the Tea Party is: "Oh, the Tea Party, they're just they just want big government control. They're Nazis!" Okay, all right. Nobody is a Nazi at this point. Well, Nazis are Nazis, but nobody else is a Nazi. Progressives have all of the seeds of Nazis, or Mao, or... Fidel Castro or, uh, Lenin, Stalin. All of the seeds are there. That doesn't mean that they're going to grow into that. It means the seeds are there. The big government "Control everybody, my way or the highway" seeds. It's exactly what our founders tried to stay against stay away from. Give the power to the local government. Give the power to the people and they will make sure. Because they won't have enough power to cobble together some gigantic king sort of situation. The king was just as bad as any of these progressives that want to make all the decisions in Washington and damn the people. "I know better. I'm the king." It's the same thing.

So the progressives that are in the Republican Party are now saying when these Tea Party people come, when these new people come, we have to coopt them. You need to get people that have a soul, recognize that they can lose it, that they understand what the stakes are and that we have a chance of standing. There's I mean, body after body after body is going to be piled up in Washington on the steps of the capitol. I mean, they're just going to, they are going to take these guys by the way, for the Tides Foundation, I don't mean literal bodies they're going to take these guys and they're just going to grab them by the throat. And for the Tides Foundation, I don't mean literally grab them by the throat suck their soul out of them and for the Tides Foundation, I don't mean suck their soul out of them literally and then cast them aside.

STU: Glenn Beck advocates sucking the soul out of people! We heard the, hmmm? We heard it! We heard alert! Boycott! Help!

GLENN: That boycott is so effective, isn't it? It's really working well for you guys, it really is. It really is. They're just going to crush these people. So you must vote, you must get out and vote for the people that you think we're going to make mistakes. We're going to send bad people in. But you've got to stand. You've got to stand.

You know what makes revolution feasible to our founders? 25 years of fighting this kind of stuff, going back and forth on the ocean. And people involved, and no way to vote. You've got a release. It's called the voting booth. When they take away your right to vote, then you'll have a case. You've got to vote. When there are 95% of the American people at the voting booth, then you have a case. But as long as there's 40, 50% of the American people that stay at home and don't vote, you don't have a you don't have any case. For violence? You have no case. Zero. We get what we deserve. When 50 or 60% of the U.S. population says, I don't know, I don't really care, whatever, we get what we deserve.

PAT: And we keep hearing about the founders. We've talked about this before. They went back and forth across the Atlantic ocean time after time after time trying to address their grievances with the king, with the crown, and time after time they were rebuffed. That went on for something like 20 years. And they didn't have the vote. They had no say. And they begged and they pleaded and they tried and they I mean, even up until 1775 and 76, they were still trying, and there was a huge portion of the population that were still trying to get along.

GLENN: A long train of abuses.

PAT: Yep.

GLENN: That's the line in the Declaration of Independence.

PAT: And it started in the 1750s. So I mean, we're nowhere near that.

GLENN: And you're not even look. Again I bring the French Revolution up. Why? Why are you even talking about revolution? There's no reason to talk about get out and vote! Get your neighbors to vote! I'm sorry to take this out on you. I sat at that table and, Pat, I called you and you said, I know, I've heard it from my friends.

PAT: Yeah. Yeah, I heard it this weekend, too.

GLENN: What, are you crazy?

PAT: Yeah. I mean, I couldn't I looked at them because I heard it two or three times this weekend. And I looked at each one of them and said, what?

GLENN: I thought I was being punked. I thought I was being punked. I really at some point said, is there a camera in the room? Seriously is there a camera in the room because this is you're joking, right?


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."
