GLENN: 888-727-BECK. Let's go to Al in West Palm Beach. Hello, Al.

CALLER: Hey, Glenn.

GLENN: Hey, Al.

CALLER: How are you, buddy?

GLENN: Good, how are you?

CALLER: Did you ever do something in your life that you were somewhat forced

into doing? Well, that's what's happening to me today, and I hate, I hate being

forced into this.

GLENN: Oh, my.

CALLER: And my dear old wife was the one to dial the phone and put me --

GLENN: Dear old wife. Okay, so Al, hang on just a second.


GLENN: So you're experiencing a point in your life, and everyone experiences

these points, where you are doing something that you're forced to do, you don't

want to do but you feel you have to do it for one reason or another, you feel

you have to do it but you regret it?

CALLER: I regret it, especially today when you're being filed on by the --

GLENN: I know, I know.

PAT: Especially today.

GLENN: Especially today.

PAT: Especially today.

GLENN: So -- but you regret making this call but you feel it's something you

have to do. I understand that. Go ahead.

PAT: But.

CALLER: And the reason why my -- the purpose of my call is to basically --

PAT: Of course it is.

CALLER: -- put my wife's mind at rest.

PAT: Oh, good.

GLENN: It's your wife. It's your wife. It's not you.

PAT: We're all in favor of that.

GLENN: All right. Well, go ahead.

PAT: Actually it's not you. It's her. Go ahead.

CALLER: Listen, you're my friend, I agree with 70% of what you said.

PAT: 70%.

GLENN: Good. All right. Go ahead.

PAT: 75, 77?

GLENN: Stop. Now, go ahead. Go ahead.

PAT: 65?

GLENN: Shhh. Quiet. Let Al speak. Go ahead. So what is it you have to do?

CALLER: Anyway, listen. George Soros is a dirt ball. He wants to create an

economic socialist world utopia.

GLENN: No, it's not socialist. It's called an open society, but go ahead.

CALLER: Whatever. And so in order for him to do that, he has elevated some poor

countries to a certain level of financial wellbeing. You say that he has

destroyed the economies of X, Y and Z country.

GLENN: Yeah, four, four separate countries.

CALLER: Right. At the same time these countries today, if I'm -- I sit to be

corrected -- are in better financial shape than they were when he intervened.

Now --

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Hang on just a second.


GLENN: No, not England. But let's -- I think I see what you're saying. What

you're saying is some of these countries that he collapsed, or he collapsed the

economies on, they were oppressive regimes.

CALLER: Exactly.

GLENN: Exactly. And so you'd like me to point that out?


GLENN: Oh, okay. So in other words, in other words let me put your wife's mind

at ease. So in other words, do we happen to have the cut? What show is this

from, Stu?

STU: It's from, you've got to go way back in history. It's from today.

PAT: How old were you today? I mean --

STU: From earlier today.

PAT: Think back. Who can remember what happened today.

GLENN: Well, I can't remember what happened today.

PAT: How old were you?

GLENN: I can't be held responsible for what I did today.

PAT: Earlier today, how old were you?

GLENN: I've been on the air for 37 minutes.

PAT: Please, this is ancient history.

GLENN: Let's go back in the last 37 minutes.

PAT: I protest.

GLENN: You think this is too --

PAT: This is too --

GLENN: Too far in the past?

PAT: Too far back. I don't even --

GLENN: Well, let's just show it for history. Here's what happened in the last 37


A man who is a hedge fund manager and has survived economic chaos, a man who has

brought down four regimes, nasty ones.

PAT: Oh, nasty ones.

GLENN: You mean like that, like me pointing out that those were nasty countries,

some of them.

PAT: You did that. But may I point out again?


PAT: That was about... 38 minutes ago?

GLENN: I can't be held responsible for what I said --

CALLER: Well, Glenn, you can be -- if you want, you know, if you want to make

fun of it, I'll laugh along with you. But if you want --

GLENN: I'm not making fun of it. No, no, I'm not laughing. I'm giving you the


CALLER: If you want to be fair and if I may put a -- if you want to be fair, in

the past couple of days you basically have painted with a great big, wide brush

as to his financial dealing, and as I say --

GLENN: No, I haven't talked about his financial dealings.

CALLER: Yes, you have.

GLENN: No, I haven't. I mean, I've mentioned his financial dealings. I've

mentioned that he makes -- you know, he's the 35th richest man in the world,

yes. I have talked about his hedge fund. I have not questioned how he makes his

money. I have questioned that he has made money off of the backs of the British

people and collapsed the British sterling which led to misery. I have played his

own words where he says, "Well, there were some unfortunate circumstances and

things that happened, you know, that you can't control. That's why I had to

experiment" with people's lives.

CALLER: Can I focus on two things that you said?

GLENN: That is fantastic. I'd love that, Al.

CALLER: For the past couple of days --

PAT: Just to put your wife's mind --

GLENN: Your wife's mind at ease.

PAT: -- at ease.

CALLER: For the past couple of days you have made fun of subversive tactics in

which Soros relished in the fact that he actually became involved in that.


CALLER: But if you -- the way you made it seem is that --

GLENN: No, hang on just a second. I didn't quote him, Al. I played the audio of

him saying subversive tactics.

CALLER: Play it again.

GLENN: Oh, okay. We can do that. Hang on just --

PAT: I'm going to play it again. Listen. Al.


PAT: Al.


PAT: We're going to play it again.

GLENN: Here it is, Al.

PAT: We're going to play it again, Al.

CALLER: Okay, guys, you can --


PAT: Al!

GLENN: You wanted to hear it again. Let's play it again.

SOROS: When you try to, let's say improve society, you affect different people

and different interests differently and they are not actually commensurate. So

you very often have all kinds of unintended adverse consequences. So I had to

experiment, and it was a learning process. The first part was this subversive

activity, disrupting the oppressive regimes. That was a lot of fun and that's

actually what got me hooked on this whole enterprise.

GLENN: Okay, go ahead, Al. So what's your point we just played?

CALLER: What was the operative word there?

GLENN: I don't know.

PAT: There were several.

GLENN: There was a lot of them.

PAT: Several operative words.

CALLER: The operative word, my friend, is repressive.

GLENN: Oh, man, Al, I never thought of that! What a great point! So that brings

us exactly right to the point, now, doesn't it? He has collapsed four -- Al, he

has collapsed four regimes, four. They're repressive. Could you tell me what the

biggest obstacle is to justice and peace in the new world order, what is the

biggest obstacle, sir, in his own words?

CALLER: May --

GLENN: Answer the question, Al. Answer the question. Have you -- put your wife

on the phone. Have her answer the question.

CALLER: I will answer your question if you allow me to expand a little bit. Will

you allow me that?

GLENN: Answer the question and then you may expand.

CALLER: Thank you. I will answer your question. He has stated, and this is why I

hate to -- why I hate this guy and why I think --

GLENN: Oh, you hate him? I don't hate him.

CALLER: -- he is a dirt ball. The answer to your question is the fact that he

has stated that the greatest obstacle to world identity or whatever you want to

say is the United States of America.

GLENN: Oh, so he believes it is a repressive regime.

CALLER: I have answered your question. No, he did not say it was a repressive


GLENN: What do you think the biggest obstacle to justice and peace would be?

CALLER: America --

GLENN: A happy regime?

CALLER: American independence.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: So in other words, you don't want American independence?


GLENN: You think American independence --

CALLER: Hello. You said that you would allow me to expand.

GLENN: Go right ahead, Al. We could put your wife on. I'd rather talk to her.

CALLER: You're a hell of a sport. He has his subversive policies overthrew

repressive regimes and that is what he was laughing at. And I agree with him

100%. I am from Cuba. I wish that he would repressively -- I mean that he would

subversively take down the government of Cuba.

GLENN: It is amazing to me that you're from Cuba.

CALLER: You would actually be laughing along with him if that was the case,

would you not?

GLENN: It is amazing to me, sir, that you are from Cuba and you believe American

independence, American independence -- anyone who says that America is the

biggest obstacle to a new world order and justice and peace, and you want to

stand and defend that man is amazing to me. I am not defending the -- or I'm not

accusing the man of collapsing regimes and saying it was wrong for him to do it.

I showed you he collapses regimes so I could show you the steps that he takes.

There are five steps that the man takes to collapse, and he is doing all five of

them. He did them on repressive regimes, he has declared that America is a

repressive regime. Of course, you have to read into his words, but that goes

back to him saying he's like God and he's invisible. It also goes to his words

subversive activity. So he says that we are the biggest obstacle. I'm sorry he

doesn't use "Repressive." And then if you look at his pattern, there are five

steps, and I showed you the five steps that he's done in the past and the five

steps that he is doing right now.

Al, if you don't see it, that's okay, brother. Go back to sleep. Go back to

sleep. And I know you've regretted this phone call. I know, I know that you did

things that you just didn't want to do. And while you were doing them, you

regretted them. And maybe someday you'll even regret this phone call even more,

sir. But see, that's another point, that sometimes you do things whether you

are, what, 40, 50, 80 or 14, sometimes you do things that you have to do, but

you regret them. And the operative word there is "Regret."

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."
