Glenn's Promise

GLENN: I told you yesterday I'm going to make not a prediction, I'm going to make a promise. I said where are all of the conservatives, saying that we can't give socialism, we can't give a socialized program to bail these big companies out. Where are they? I said here is my promise, not a prediction. Since nobody on the conservative side is standing up saying, hey, we can't bail these companies out, there will be no defense against the argument, "Well, you were for it for the big companies." And I said, I'll make you a promise that's what's coming. Well, in today's USA Today, which means Harry Reid said this sometime yesterday, as maybe I was making this promise on the air. Senate majority leader Harry Reid promised consideration of a second stimulus package. The first one's not even out yet and it's not even going to -- it's not going to work. But anyway, he's promising a second one. Extending unemployment benefits, funding construction, providing other kinds of aid. He criticized the White House on Monday for being willing to bail out large investment banks while doing little for homeowners facing foreclosure. Fastest prediction to come true, Stu?

Then we have -- I'm going to make another promise, not a prediction. Last hour is going to be taken out of context by the blogs. It will be typed directly into Keith Olbermann's TelePrompTer and it will be used as a case on just how racist and how hateful talk radio really is. And it will be very fascinating to see how they do it and how they take -- they will take the comedy parts and take it out of context and then report it as deadly serious, yet again. But you at least will know the truth, especially if you get the newsletter today. It's absolutely free. Grab it online at You'll be able to hear the whole monologue on Barack Obama's preacher. Then I want to warn you on something on the economy and then I'm going to move on.

I told you six months ago, I said, the world, you will wake up on a Monday and by Friday the whole world will look different. I don't believe this is the week. It could be the week. I don't believe this is the week but we are on the precipice and now you have more and more economists. You have people who will actually utter the word "Depression," not "Recession." They will say, "Oh, yeah, we're in a recession." Now they are starting to talk about Depression. When I was in crazy town six months ago or a year ago when I talked to you about this and I said to you at the time prepare, get out of debt, food storage, do the things that you need to do. Please do those things because the world -- I truly believe the world is going to change and hopefully, hopefully they are able to pull this one out of the fire but I don't -- I can't imagine how it's going to happen because it's not really about liquidity. It's about so much more. But leave that alone.

Here's the thing I want you to watch for. I want you to watch for a sudden fall in the price of oil. If you see oil spike downward to about $70 a barrel, $80 a barrel, if it goes from $110 to $80 a barrel, look out. It's counterintuitive but you have to remember that the price of oil is based on futures and so what could possibly happen, a bad sign. If it drifts back down slowly over a period of time, that's good. But if it suddenly drops down, what that means is that the conventional wisdom for the people who buy oil futures, these are the big -- you know, there's a lot of money. These people who are buying oil futures, what they're saying is the economy around the world is going to slow down so much that people won't be able to drive or fly as much as they have had to. They won't be able to afford the oil or the gasoline or the diesel. So demand will go way, way down for oil. That's what they will be betting on. Right now they're betting on things are just going to continue to grow and consumption's going to continue to grow and the price -- and the dollar is going to continue to fall. If oil suddenly spikes down, watch out. But please, I'm begging you, and I -- you know, I'm probably wrong but please, I'm begging you, please prepare your family. Please go out and do some food storage. Please go out and just batten down the hatches at your own home just because it probably won't happen, but goodness. There are so many warning signs out there that now the average Joe can see. And you know what? I talked to the -- remember the lady we had on yesterday? She was -- I'm trying to remember her name. She was -- yeah, Sherry Cooper. She used to work -- she was one of the chief economists at the Fed. She was on again last night. I had the guy on from Barron's, one of the main guy from Barron's last night and I asked him. I said, what is the average person doing? He said, well, the average person's got to change his stock portfolio, and I said, stop. The average person. The person that is struggling to make ends meet right now, the one that is looking at the gas pump and saying, oh, my gosh, the gas, what do I do about the gas, what does that person do? You know what his quote was? I mean, if this doesn't make the hair on the back of your neck stand up, nothing will. He said, well, that person it's too late. I'm telling you it's not too late but it's becoming too late soon. Go. Do food storage, please. Batten down the hatches. As much as you possibly can, batten down the hatches. We are facing things that this country -- you know what I actually had an economist tell me yesterday? That they think this could be worse than the 1930s. I said to them, how does it get worse than the -- how is that even possible? You think I'm in crazy town? What does that even mean? But we are in uncharted territory. The Fed is studying the Great Depression. They are looking at it. Bernanke is a guy who has studied it before and they are trying to pull out all of the stops. I read a report today that says this thing is so big and so out of control, the Fed's not going to be able to control it. It's going to land in the lap of congress and the President. Well, now it will be fixed. When it gets to that point, gang, it's socialism. When it gets to that point, it is the other thing I've been predicting, the new New Deal. All right, enough on that. Watch oil and please prepare.

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."
