Stu, the Volvo driver...

GLENN:  Hey, Stu, at what point do you say, "I'm going to get a different kind of car"?

STU:  At what point am I going to get a different kind of car?  There's no point that I get a different kind of car.

GLENN:  There's no point, because your wife drives --

STU:  Oh, you're saying my wife?

GLENN:  No, no, your wife drives an SUV, right?

STU:  Yes, a Volvo.  We're Volvo drivers.  I love it.  I love that car.

GLENN:  I knew I hated you.

STU:  I love that car.  It's fantastic.  Not to mention, I don't know if you guys have noticed this.  I don't know what your experiences with my wife -- I know Dan has experienced this several times.  My wife is a maniac.

DAN:  Oh, my gosh.

STU:  She drives like a crazy person.

DAN:  I have never been more scared in my life.

GLENN:  Can I tell you something?  Women behind the wheel of an SUV, danger.

STU:  I would say that's generally accurate.

GLENN:  Danger, Sarah's looking at me and she's a pregnant woman and I'm very, very afraid.

STU:  Oh, yeah.

GLENN:  My wife, by the way, my wife, she's like working out all the time and she's like -- I mean, she's, like, ripped.  I'm afraid of her.

STU:  She could beat the crap out of you, yeah.

GLENN:  Well, that goes without question.  She could do it when she was nine months pregnant.  I mean, honey, if you are listening, turning off the radio for a second.

STU:  That's going to work now that you've started telling the story.

GLENN:  No, she's generally -- this isn't a story about you, really.

STU:  Off topic, just go to something else.

GLENN:  No, it's not a story about you, honey.  She actually does turn off the radio because she's like, I'm not even going to listen to this nonsense, which is weird.  It's happening a lot of -- anyway, so she's like all ripped now.  She's working out all the time and last night I'm in bed and I'm sleeping and I wake up and I look at the clock.  Do you ever have one of those moments where you look up at the clock and you're like, oh, it's only 2:00 in the morning; how great is that.  And you think, -- you know what I'm saying?  And you think it's time to get -- you lay there in bed and you say, what time is it?  I'm so tired?  Then you look at the clock and you're like, "I've got another three hours; this is fantastic."

STU:  Love that feeling.

GLENN:  There's no feeling better than that.  So I look at the clock and I roll over and I look at the clock and it's 2:00 and I'm like, this is great.  I turn -- I want to flip and I turn over and I adjust the pillows and everything else and I kind of pound my pillow and stuff.  I get all comfy.  This is how out of shape I am.  I've been sleeping.  All I did was roll over and fluff the pillows and I caught myself do this (gasping for air).

STU:  Oh, my God, you've got to be menaced to death.

GLENN:  I lay there and I'm like, I'm going to be just a head in a jar soon, I am just going to be a head in a jar.

STU:  And you would probably be in better health.

GLENN:  (Gasping for air).  "What did you do?"  "I just fluffed the pillow."  That's bad.  That's really bad.  Okay, so anyway.

STU:  Tracing this back.

GLENN:  Tracing this back.

STU:  Basically you asked me about the car.

GLENN:  Hang on just a second.  We've got to go one step back, back to Tania who's working out.  She can kick everybody's butt.  One step back from that is women driving SUVs really bad because I think they like the feeling of, "I can kick your ass."

STU:  They like the power.

GLENN:  My wife, she's -- you know Tania.  Have you -- I mean, besides your wives, have you met anybody as nice as my wife?

STU:  She's very nice.

GLENN:  She is like so nice, she's so gentle, she's so peaceful, she's very quiet.  She's the opposite of me.

STU:  Yeah.  People like her.

GLENN:  (Gasping for air).  Sorry.  I was just thinking up a response to that and I'm worn out.  So she's the opposite of me.  She gets behind the wheel of a car, especially an SUV, she is on the horn, she is an aggressive driver.

STU:  Really?

GLENN:  I'm like, honey, honey, honey.  She's like, these clowns that are driving, don't they know what I'm -- I'm like, you frighten me, honey.

STU:  I wouldn't see her as a road rager at all.

GLENN:  Oh.  Oh, my.  She's got a road rager on anything.  She can -- I'm not kidding you.  She can have the kids yanking at her hair, another one with the fingers jamming up her nose, walking on, you know, some, like, toy that has been sitting, they are both just screaming for hours and she'll be like, hey, how are things?  I'm like, ahhhh!  But you put her in traffic in an SUV for two seconds, she is Rambo.  You put a weapon in that car, please don't ever drive slowly.  I cannot control my wife.

STU:  She's that bad?  Are you serious?

GLENN:  She's that bad.

STU:  She's so calm and understated.

GLENN:  She is that bad.  She is not on the phone, is she?  Whew.  Okay, good.  Got another day to live.

STU:  Well, my wife is pretty much the same way.

GLENN:  Okay.  So the question was, now to go back one more step.

STU:  Yes.

GLENN:  Because my wife was like, you should get a hybrid, we should get a hybrid.

STU:  Why would she want to get a hybrid?

GLENN:  I don't think she has a clue how much money I make.  Most of it is because --

STU:  Glenn, Glenn, Glenn, I've seen her.  She married you.  She knows exactly how much money you make.  Trust me on that.

GLENN:  She married me when I was poor.  I was poor.  So anyway, she is psychic.  She knows.

STU:  I think so.

GLENN:  So she said, you know, "We've got to get a hybrid.  Do you know how much gas..." now I am driving 100 miles a day to get to work.

STU:  That's 50 -- you're saying round trip, right?

GLENN:  Yeah, yeah.  That's stupid.

STU:  It's a long way.

GLENN:  Yeah.  So I'm driving 100 miles a day and I've got an aircraft carrier with wheels.  I think we can land a plane on the top of my -- I've got an Escalade.  I think we can land a plane on top of it.  So it's nice.

STU:  God bless that car.

GLENN:  I put it in the parking lot, chain goes down, drops anchor and we're there.  You ain't pulling that car.  I have to pay like an extra $100 a month for parking because they're like, oh, come on, man.

STU:  It's going to take three spots.

GLENN:  This is going to take three spots.  And it's great.  It's just me.  Sometimes I just put papers in the back.

STU:  So what you're saying is, what, you're considering buying a vehicle that's going to save --

GLENN:  Well, we've been driving the Tahoe hybrid, you know, this deal -- and this is not -- I swear to you this isn't a commercial but I mean, it should be.  You know what, GM -- no, I'm not going to tell how great it is until they pay me.  You know, they swap out these cars and the new GM Tahoe which I think is the same as the hybrid Yukon.  I have a Yukon and an Escalade.  They are fantastic.  I like it better than my Escalade.

STU:  Really?

GLENN:  Yeah.  And just a bonus, I think it gets about 8 miles to the gallon more.

STU:  Which is significant in these trying times.

GLENN:  Significant in these, yes.

STU:  Yes.  So what's -- so you bought it, of course, when the government mandated that you had to buy a hybrid.

GLENN:  No, I haven't bought it.

STU:  No, when the government forced you to do that -- you mean you just bought it because it was --

GLENN:  I haven't bought it.

STU:  Well, you are considering buying it because --

GLENN:  It may be stolen from my house.  I'm just saying.  "I don't know what happened to your car, GM.  It was here last night.  Don't check the garage."

STU:  But you like it better.

GLENN:  I like it better.

STU:  You would consider buying it.

GLENN:  I would consider buying it.  But I haven't even looked at hybrids because I'm not going to save the planet.  I'm going to be part of the problem.  I'm getting that addicted on this stuff.

Last night, in case you just joined us, we told you about a half hour ago that they have announced that there's more ice on the polar caps than there's been since 1979.  Freak out.  We're all going to freeze to death in the fiery flood.  I can't take it.

STU:  Freeze to death in a fiery flood, I'm trying to -- that's about as much --

GLENN:  I know, it's global warming.  Okay, so it only took me about 12 minutes.  I never got an answer.  How much does gas have to be before your wife stops driving an SUV?

STU:  You want to know now?

GLENN:  No, not now.

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.

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."
