GLENN: From Radio City in Midtown Manhattan, third most listened to show in all of America. Hello, you sick twisted freak. Welcome to the program. I'm going to talk to you a little bit about Sarah Palin, and I hope that I hope that we're now seeing the Sarah Palin that is the Sarah Palin that now gets it. I think it takes you a while to get the press. I think and maybe it's just me, but I've come to New York and to the press and you've seen it. I mean recently. We just did a deal with Time magazine last week and we had worked with them for three weeks on something and they completely misrepresented themselves. Oh, they were, oh, our best buddies. "Oh, yeah." And then they just hatchet us to death. And so you just don't think I saw about it this weekend when I saw that story come out in Time and I thought, how do these people sleep at night? You just don't want to go into it thinking that so many people in the media are just bad people, but I think they are. Not everybody, but I think a lot of them are. They don't care. They will do anything t hey have to for their side to win. I just want the truth and I thought that's what they were into. And so I think Sarah Palin came into this just, it's a different world here in Manhattan and it's a different world in Washington. And I don't mean the regular people. The people in New York get a bad rap. People in New York are just like everybody else. The elites in New York, left and right, they're a freak show and the elites in the media. It's the same thing. Freak show. I think when Sarah Palin first got into it, she was a little like I have been. You know, people are good. People are generally good. No, you know, I know that the, you know, Washington is broken but, no, no. No, no, it's beyond broken. It's a cesspool. It needs to be restored, not just I mean, it needs all the pieces need to be taken out and everything needs to be wiped down and sanitized and then we put new pieces in. That's what has to happen. And I don't think she really understood that. I think she was steam rolled by the McCain campaign and didn't see that one coming. I think the McCain campaign and I have nothing I'm basing this on other than my own gut. I think the McCain campaign used her and despised her at the same time. And I also believe that the Republicans do not like Sarah Palin as much as the Democrats don't. Now, not all of them because there's some Democrats in there that or some Republicans in there that are like, yeah, we need a good housecleaning, we need somebody who can, you know, just restore this thing the way it should be. But anybody who plays the game hates Sarah Palin. Any of the elites like David Letterman hate Sarah Palin. Because, what, she's a soccer mom, she goes hunting, she's playing with her kids. What? Don't you have some help to do that? She's probably smells like baby vomit. You know, that kind of a thing. That's where David Letterman is. They all sit around and at cocktail parties and they all... so now I'm hoping that this is the new Sarah Palin because I don't know if anybody has really truly talked about how Sarah Palin eviscerated David Letterman, eviscerated him. She took a scalpel and cut his heart out. It was still beating in her hand when he was like, "You know, and another thing about how stupid and slutty you are..." he didn't even see it coming. And the reason why I say she eviscerated it, it's one thing to say, hey, don't make fun of my daughter, which she's completely in the right to do. I mean, where was the when the press started asking Barack Obama and taking pictures and he was like, "Hey, back off. It's my private time with my kids." Nobody invades that. Do you know they are closing down streets now every time his daughters go back in the backyard and play? Do you know that? They close the street. Do I have a problem with that? No. None at all. Leave the children alone. I don't want those kids growing up to be in a zoo where people are watching them or some freak is out there with a camera. And when I say freak, I mean paparazzi or anything. Don't leave kids out of it. But that's not what she did. The one thing that could be said about David Letterman that I believe all of us know to be true is and we don't know this. You never know, but I think it's a pretty good guess. He is not a pervert. He is not preying on your children. Stu is looking at me like, well, we don't have evidence of that. Do you think he is looking at pictures of 14 year olds?

STU: I mean, I have no reason to believe that.

GLENN: Correct.

STU: But I have no reason to not believe that.

GLENN: Correct, correct, correct. But if we're going to be the typical people that we are and that Sarah Palin is, you'd have no reason to believe that David Letterman is looking at, you know, bad pictures of 14 year olds.

STU: Right. He's not a criminal in this. Most likely with David Letterman was he didn't even know.

STU: I don't know that you can say that's most likely. I don't think I can give you most likely.

GLENN: Highly likely?

STU: I would say no, I would not say most likely. I would say it's possible. It's possible he didn't know.

GLENN: What you know about David Letterman, he is a bad human being. He is just not nobody likes working with him.

STU: I've heard that, yes. From many people.

GLENN: From many, many people. Not a decent human being.

STU: But I mean, that's hearsay. I've heard it from people who

GLENN: From people who worked with him for a very long time.

STU: Wasn't my first

GLENN: Okay. So the hearsay is bad guy, really a nasty dude. And also the comedy writing scenario over there is everybody just passes notes, nobody's in a room working together. There is no talking there. It's a nasty situation. You get the cards to him. He reads them in rehearsal and that's it. So it's not like he was sitting around going, "Hey, you know what will be funny is if..." he most likely it was written he saw it in the monologue prompter and it was like, "Okay, fine." Whether he knew it was the 14 year old daughter or not, and this so you know, this point is really meaningless because, "Oh, so it was the daughter that was four years older? Sure, she's legal but still it's a 14 year old daughter."

STU: Again I won't give you most likely on that. I think there's a very significant chance that he believed it would be funny because it's Sarah Palin and he hates her that it would be funny to say, you know what, his whole family is a bunch of sluts. I do think that he would think that.

GLENN: And, you know, he wasn't necessarily envisioning the 14 year old. It was just

STU: Again I

GLENN: Okay, all right, I'll give that to you, that's fine. I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Either way it doesn't excuse it. But what she did is she came out and instead of saying leave my daughters alone, she immediately went for something that is a scalpel, which is you're a dirty old man, a 60 year old making saying sexual comments about a 14 year old. Immediately galvanized against David Letterman, immediately. There's no ifs, ands or buts about it. It's just need Galvanization.

STU: There's no doubt about who won that battle.

GLENN: She did, his beating heart. Yeah, well, you're just a slutty... and didn't even see it being taken out of his chest. And he was so slow, he didn't even see it coming out of his chest the next day and that's where he really went wrong. I think if he would have said, Sarah Palin, you know, we make fun of everybody, I certainly didn't know it was your 14 year old daughter and it was probably over the line even if it wasn't your 14 year old daughter, and I apologize. I think America would have forgiven him. I think America would forgive him.

STU: Again it's possible to make a mistake. That's what makes you think maybe it wasn't, especially when you put a picture up there.

GLENN: And I'm torn on this because I don't want a joke czar.

STU: No.

GLENN: I don't want a joke czar.

STU: Nope.

GLENN: I don't want anybody telling people what they can and can't say, I don't want David Letterman fired for it. I don't want boycotts of David Letterman. I would, however, like a little bit of consistency from CBS. They fired Don Imus over a comment that he made about a comment about a basketball team, you don't know the specifics of anybody and that was the worst thing that anybody has ever said at any time including, kill them all and let God sort them out. It was the worst thing uttered ever. And David Letterman says this about a specific family with a picture, and CBS signs him to a new contract. Now, what Sarah Palin has done is she has demonstrated only to those who care to see and nobody in the mainstream media will see. She has demonstrated, "Oh, really? I could play that game, too." She just took out a comedian. Now, unlike with the with Al Sharpton who pickets and then all of a sudden they find themselves out of a job, I don't agree with that. I don't agree with picketing and then the company fires them and everything else. That kind of pressure is wrong. You've let the people vote with the ratings, and they are going to do that. You mark my words. David Letterman has made a has staked out a position here that unless he changes courses, he is going to be, well, at CBS. He is going to be Katie Couric. They are going to be perfect bookends for the CBS lineup. Katie Couric, all the liberals love her. All the people in these people's circle are on, you got it, Dave, you took her out. You stand strong, Dave. All the regular people, A, don't want you to treat her that way, even if they disagree with her. You don't treat somebody like that.

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."
