America's First Christmas on Dec 15th in Wilmington, Ohio - Learn more...

GLENN: Let me go to Todd in Ohio. Hello, Todd.

CALLER: Hey, Glenn. I just wanted to thank you for encouraging us to teach our family about our teach our kids about the history of our I'm sorry. I'm nervous.

GLENN: Don't be.

CALLER: Well, when I was a kid, my dad used to take me to the Clymer family reunion and, you know, I enjoyed but I never really thought a whole lot bit and pretty much almost dismissed it and then started hearing you talk about our founders and the Clymer reunion is a reunion of the descendants of George Clymer who was the signer of both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, one of the six that did that. And I started telling my kids the stories about George Clymer and, you know, and I just wanted to make sure that our family history lived beyond my own because my dad passed away in 2001 and so I started telling my kids the stories and I forward looking my son to Independence Hall in Philadelphia and to the national archives in DC to he could see where they were signed. They saw the actual document and like I said, my dad passed away in '01 and I just wanted to thank you for encouraging us to do that.

GLENN: Thank you, Todd .

CALLER: For another generation, but I own a small business in Maineville, Ohio, and

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait. In Wilmington Ohio?

CALLER: No. I'm in Maineville, Ohio, is where they were, but we had a fire and we relocated to Wilmington, Ohio, and I had heard that you were coming to Wilmington and I just wanted to talk to you about the amazing people that are there.

GLENN: Yeah.

CALLER: June 30th, 6:00 o'clock in the morning I got phone call. Our business of 15 years where we make Mustang parts for the Ford Mustang was on fire and it destroyed our entire building. We lost all of our inventory and all of our supplies and my wife and I were standing there after the fire trucks left and there's an incredible silence when you're standing there alone and we just looked at each other like, what we going to do now? And a lot of people, I think, would probably turn to the government or ask for a handout or something like that, but we had gotten into a church that surrounded us when we needed it and they came out and took care of our kids while we were out there in the morning trying to rescue whatever was left and then my friend from church brought our kids out to the shop and I was, quite frankly, almost too embarrassed and ashamed because as a dad, didn't know how I was going to provide for my family and my daughter looked up and me said, Dad, it's going to be all right. Kind of like you, I feel like you're bluffing through parenthood and I looked at her kind of thinking, gosh, you promise? And we ended up before we even moved out all of our products that was left, our molds, to another building, I got a phone call from a guy from my church. He said, I've got a line on a building for you. I'm thinking, I'm covered in soot at the moment. Can I call you tomorrow? And I did and he ended up he had heard what had happened. He asked himself, what can actually said a prayer, said, what's one thing I can do to help Todd and it came to him he's going to need a building and he got in his Rolodex and called a guy named Brent Dixon in Wilmington, Ohio, and I had never been there before. It's only a half hour away and I hard about all of the DHL issues and how rough it was supposed to be and when I went up there, I was amazed at the peace in that town. It doesn't match the story. I mentioned it to my wife. I was, like, there is something about this place. And I met with the owner of the building and it turns out 20 years ago he had had a fire and his building burned down and he just wanted to help us and he actually let us move in on nothing but a handshake and I just wanted people to know about Wilmington. I'm learning about it myself and it's just an amazing place.

GLENN: I will tell you, Todd, what it is, if you haven't found it yourself, it is the power of prayer. That is still a community that still has a lot of Quaker influence in it and these are people that have not lost touch with God or the values that we used to have. I haven't been out there myself, but every single staff member I think we've had about 10 or 15 of my staff out there now getting ready for this event on next Wednesday and every single one of them that come back say, "I didn't want to come back. I just wanted to live there." And these are some of these are hard core New Yorkers, I've never lived out of New York, I love New York and they will all call or come back and say, I didn't want to come back. It's fantastic.

CALLER: I grew up in a small town in Ohio and moved to Cincinnati, Ohio, to go to college and thought I would never want to be in a small town ever again and when I went out of to Wilmington, you was just it was just such a peaceful place. It is Bedford Falls in a lot of ways, you know.

GLENN: Yeah.

CALLER: I haven't been there that long, but I love the place. It's a half hour drive. I went from a two minute drive to work to a half hour drive and I remember thinking, gosh, I'm not going to like this very much, but I love every minute of it. It's a beautiful countryside and you get into town and it's just an amazing place with people that aren't going to give up. Just like us. We're not giving up. We're looking to re we're about 90% back up on our feet. It took us five months to do it, but our goal is to grow our business this year and hopefully hire some people from Wilmington.

GLENN: Todd, can I make a recommendation to you? You can go online or you can find in it books, but you can probably find a version of the story online. Look up Thomas Edison and look up towards the end of his life. This is when he was inventing the movie projector and, I mean, he was he was into everything. I still I think he still holds more patents than anybody else in American history. He's an amazing guy. He was in New Jersey and one night his whole complex burns to the ground. He loses everything, all of his experiments, all of his notes, everything, and they work through the night to put the fire out and I'm trying to remember who it was that saw him at the end. It was one of his friends that saw him at the end of the night and he had soot all over him and everything else and his friend expected him to be just devastated, because he lost everything, lost I mean, can you imagine all of the experiments and all of the things that you were halfway in the middle of doing and all of your notes, everything gone. I don't even think he had insurance at the time. And he lost everything and his friend said, Tom, what are you going to do? And I'm paraphrasing. It's been a while since I've read the story, but the story goes that he got up on his kitchen table and said, "Well, right now I'm just going to take a quick nap because we have a lot to do tomorrow." And he just he slept on his kitchen table and started the next day and just and the employees were all devastated and he's, like, "Don't worry about it. We're going to be fine. Let's just keep going." And they started to they did exactly when you're doing. They just moved in several different places until he could rebuild everything, but he eventually rebuilt everything and he continued to be one of the leaders of American industry and American thought for the rest of his life. It's an amazing story. You should read it because I think you would connect with it .

CALLER: My crew all gathered around and helped us rebuild. My family came together. It's amazing because you would think that it would have been completely devastating and it was in a lot of ways, but there's miracles that happen I could tell you that would make your hair stand on end. I mean, I had rifts in my family, extended family that had healed like, 10 years we hadn't spoken. Because of this fire, we're having our first Christmas together this year in 10 years our whole family is going to be together. You know, it's like I could list many things that have happened because of that fire and that's what it took for my family to get back together, I'm okay with that.

GLENN: Todd, hang on the phone because I just want to get some information from you because I would like to talk to you next week when we're in Wilmington .

CALLER: I would love to.

GLENN: Okay. Hold on just a second. Let's get some information from Todd. We are going to be in Wilmington. I invite you to come. The town is preparing for your arrival and I've told them there could be 2,000 people there, there could be 10,000. I don't know how many people will show up, but this is a town that lost 7500 jobs out of 12,000 people and they're struggling, but it is a fantastic town and they have so much to teach the rest of the country because they're survivors. So, come and to do your holiday shopping in Wilmington, Ohio, next Wednesday and I'll be there all day long, starting in the morning until late at night. Bring your family and enjoy the day.

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."
