Glenn Beck: Chris Christie Porn



TheBlaze:


Classic Christie: Vows to ‘Punch’ Teachers Unions

GLENN: All right. So anyway, here's Chris Christie and talking about the

situation of education and what should be said to parents by the principals.

PAT: And the first thing he pointed out is that throwing money at the education

problem doesn't help.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: $25,000 per student in New York or Newark, and their education system

sucks.

CHRISTIE: Yet, yet 104,000 students are trapped in New Jersey today in 205

chronically failing stools. In 2009, 40% of New Jersey's African American

students and 32% of our Hispanic students were unable to meet any basic

standards on the national tests.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

CHRISTIE: In 2009 nearly 30% of all eighth graders in New Jersey, not just our

urban challenged children but of all eighth grade students in New Jersey lacked

basic math skills.

REPORTER: Governor Christie said he wished failing schools would be honest with

parents.

GLENN: Now, listen to this.

REPORTER: He said on back to school nights this should what should happen.

CHRISTIE: Principal should walk into the classroom and say, parents, good

evening, I'm the principal and I want to welcome you to back to school night.

Your teacher this year is Mrs. Smith. Mrs. Smith is an awful teacher.

(Laughter). Really seriously by any measure, she's not good.

STU: (Laughing).

CHRISTIE: Her students underachieve consistently on testing, they don't like

coming to her class. She doesn't really care. She's using the same lesson plans

that she used 15 years ago. And no matter what we've tried to do to encourage

her to get more training, to change her attitude, she simply refuses to do it.

Now, our problem is that because of this union contract we have in our district,

we can't fire her or do anything to her.

PAT: Wow.

CHRISTIE: So as much as we've tried, we just have concluded that we're not going

to change her. Have a great year. (Applause).

GLENN: Fantastic.

CHRISTIE: The worst schools are continuing to be allowed to operate without any

effort systematically to fix them. It is time for us to stand up and demand that

the teachers, the principals and the administrators truly do what the teachers

union says they do every day.

GLENN: Okay.

CHRISTIE: Putting the children first.

GLENN: Stop. This is the deal. This can sound like an anti teacher rant. It's an

anti bad teacher rant. And the teachers unions keep all unions keep the worst

people as part of the team. The idea, unions are socialist in nature. Everybody

gets paid the same. There's nobody better or worse. And you just have to carry

the weakest among you. And that's not good. That's not good.

Now, I know 90% of the union workers like last night we were in a union theater.

We couldn't move a chair. That's ridiculous. That's ridiculous. I mean, I almost

had to go into the cafeteria and have a union member pull the chair out from the

table so I could sit. I mean, it's ridiculous.

STU: Yeah, the rules are ridiculous. Nice guys and everything.

GLENN: They were great guys and they did their job.

STU: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: I didn't see a single lazy person at that theater. They were great. They

were great. But the union rules are ridiculous and there are those union members

that suck. And they should be fired. Now, I didn't see any last night, but I've

worked with unions many times and most of the people are great. It's the union

leadership that is out of step, that don't care, that are all about their own

pensions. That's why their union pensions up the he top are all fully funded,

sometimes at 120%. But the worker? Their pensions are not. And those are the

ones that are in trouble. The leadership? Oh, they got theirs. They got theirs.

Union members need to wake up. It's the leadership that's the problem.

 

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."
