GLENN: Okay. Now, I saw the movie and I went with a friend of mine. We went with our wives, and it's the same friend that we went a couple of weeks ago to another movie, New Moon. And I said halfway through New Moon

PAT: You've got to be kidding me. You went to New Moon?

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: I don't remember you telling this story.

GLENN: Of course not.

PAT: You went to New Moon?

GLENN: I went to New Moon. My wife is a big New Moon fan, my daughters are a big New Moon fan. I actually brought my daughter this weekend to New Moon. So I've seen it twice. I wanted to claw my eyes out. I said to halfway through I said to my friend, "I think we need to check each other's man cards. I don't think we can carry..."

STU: Well, it is, I've heard it's littered with lots of shirtless men.

GLENN: It's ridiculous. It was ridiculous.

STU: Lots of abs, I would say. Is that true?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Would you say that's accurate? Would you say that's why you went?

GLENN: Well, not the first time. So the my daughter was like, "Dad." Because I was on the Blackberry the whole time saying, "Yeah, this is a good part, I saw it, he takes his shirt off." But anyway, I saw a... whew. After admitting to New Moon. I saw the Sandra Bullock movie this weekend. Yes, there, I said it, okay? I saw the Sandra Bullock movie.

PAT: Blind Side? Now, I want to see that.

GLENN: It was great.

STU: I saw it as well.

PAT: A true football story behind it. There's nothing shameful about that.

GLENN: Really?

STU: It's sports. It's okay.

PAT: It's sports.

GLENN: Okay, all right, yeah!

PAT: You can get your man card back for that.

GLENN: Thank you! We went to the movie and we were walking in and I said, this is Sandra Bullock. If this isn't good, man, we are definitely, we might as well just kiss each other now. And so we did because we didn't think that it was

STU: Just preparation. You always say be prepared. You always say be prepared.

GLENN: So went and I really, really liked it. I thought it was a great movie. It's one of those movies that you walk out really uplifted and I mean, the reason why I thought of it was because of the Forever Strong movie. That's the kind of movie that Forever Strong is, where you just walk out feeling good.

STU: Yeah. Blind Side was really good.

GLENN: You saw it?

STU: I read the book, too. It's the story of Michael Orr who is a guy in

PAT: Plays for the Ravens now.

STU: Ravens now. But yeah, they did actually a pretty good job with it. It was interesting because, you know, if I'm going to pick it apart from the right wing talk show host perspective, there's a few, like, there's a couple of George Bush jokes in there, there's a couple of instances where they are pointing out that, you know, her friend because she's hard core rightwing Christian conservative, like this family that did this.

GLENN: I love her.

STU: But all of her friends were like racists and all this other stuff. But the

GLENN: She's in Memphis. You expect some older women down South, not I mean, a tableful but you will expect that there are some, you know, people that are like, "Well, I don't know now." You know, there are

STU: Sure.

PAT: Although I lived down South for eight years. I didn't encounter any of those people.

GLENN: There's a difference between

PAT: None!

GLENN: There's a difference between the Old South and Texas.

STU: Well, but there's of course there's obviously racists everywhere.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Yeah, and there's white racists, there's black racists.

STU: Sure.

GLENN: I mean, living down South I saw black racism as well.

STU: But, like, the fact that they, like, find a way to work in a George Bush joke and do a story line that is literally hard core rightwing conservative saving a young black man who had absolutely no family, no life and rescuing from the most, the worst parts of society.

GLENN: From a rightwing family.

STU: Just, bringing them into their home for absolutely no reason other than they just cared about him.

GLENN: I laughed harder at this line than I think I've laughed at any other line, ever! Because it was finally, it was a good line on our side. And that was, "Did you ever think that we'd have a black son before we knew a Democrat?"

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: I mean, I laughed hard at that.

STU: Yeah. No, it was well done, though. And they stayed very true to the story in the book and, you know, it's a good heartwarming thing for the Hal days, I think. It's a good way to go.

GLENN: Oh, it's great.

PAT: Have you guys seen

GLENN: Because I didn't know the story at all. I went into the movie going, is this a true story, I think this is a true story, I don't know who this guy is because I'm not a sports fan. So I didn't know, you know, who this guy was at all. And when I saw it turn from the NCAA, NCAA?

STU: Good job, good job.

GLENN: Thank you. I was so disgusted, so disgusted. And I didn't know how it ended. And I thought, oh, you've got to be kidding me. Did they turn this guy around? You know, how much of that is real life? I thought, okay, are they going to have a hap they have got to have a happy ending now, what's the real story, et cetera, et cetera. Because this family was totally innocent. I mean, they were just

STU: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: Out of the goodness of their heart. Have you heard interviews with the family?

STU: Hmmm. No. I mean, they had a lot of quotes from them in the book and stuff when they were talking about it.

GLENN: Well, they're white and Christian and conservative; they must love us! Let's see if we can get, let's see if we can get them on the air.

STU: Yeah, great.

GLENN: I'd love to talk, especially her. I mean, I don't know if I don't know about anybody else, but I loved I read a review beforehand and it said, you know, it's the same old Sandra Bullock. I didn't think so at all.

STU: No, she did a good job.

GLENN: I thought she did a great job. And I loved I mean, if that's the way the woman really is, I love that.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I thought she was great.

STU: Yeah. No, it's shocking to I think Hollywood. I don't know how they made that movie. I guess just because it was a popular book beforehand. But conservatives actually care about other people.

GLENN: No, no, no.

STU: That are poor and minorities. I mean, what are the odds?

GLENN: Look, look, look, you can be born with three eyes, too. It happens once in a while. It happens.

STU: So just a one in a billion case.

GLENN: Yeah, that's a conservative mutant clearly. I just thought it was a fantastic story that, I love the scene where she's laying in bed and she's smiling. She says, I'm happy. Shows where happiness really comes from, doing the right thing and serving others. It's fantastic.

 

Bill O'Reilly joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday to discuss a recent House Homeland Security Committee briefing on the impact of the 9/11 terror attacks, during which "national security experts" claimed "right-wing" groups pose a greater threat to the United States than groups like the Taliban or Al-Qaeda.

Glenn played two video clips from the briefing that showed Senior Fellow Brookings Institute Center for Middle East Policy, Daniel Byman, and former National Intelligence Council Chair during the Obama administration, Christopher Kojm, in apparent agreement that "right-wing extremists" are a bigger threat to Americans today than "jihadists."

"I'm someone who has written extensively on both jihadist groups, but also right-wing, white supremacist groups," Byman says in the first video clip. "And in my mind, there's no question that today in the United States, the right-wing and white supremacist violence is a much greater risk."

"I agree with your assessment and those of my colleagues who have spoken already, there's little doubt that the domestic terrorist threat from white nationalists and right-wing extremist groups is greater than the jihadist threat today," Kojm states in the second clip.

"Who are those idiots?" O'Reilly exclaimed. "It's just unbelievable ... they're not even in the same universe. Yeah, there are bad neo-Nazi Americans running around, yeah, but there are very few of them. I mean, the jihadists are causing death and destruction, death and destruction all over the world. Not just in the United States. These people are so blatantly irresponsible and ignorant, it's just staggering."

The Biden administration was recently caught lying about the White House dog, Major, and his history of biting Secret Service agents, according to newly released emails.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn argued that, if the current administration is willing to lie about something so meaningless to the American people, what else are they willing to lie about? For instance, the State Department claims that there are only about 200 American citizens left in Afghanistan who want to be evacuated. But Glenn has heard very different reports from people on the ground. Is it safe to assume they're currently lying to us about all kinds of things — from the "new and improved" Taliban, to the number of Americans left behind in Afghanistan?

Tonight on "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck outlines everything that led up to the chaos in Kabul in a blow-by-blow takedown that SHOULD lead to massive resignations within the Biden administration and top military brass. Americans died. Americans are – TO THIS DAY – still stranded, and it is ALL on President Joe Biden.

Glenn interviews The Nazarene Fund's Rudy Atallah who gives an update on the total rescue numbers and details the obstacles he's had to overcome with the State Department. He explains why he believes they are thwarting private sector rescue efforts and says the numbers of Americans begging to be rescued are in the thousands — not hundreds — and "will exceed any number that has come out of Jen Psaki's mouth." While The Nazarene Fund rescue efforts continue in a more perilous Afghanistan, Rudy reveals another terrifying obstacle: Chinese and Russians resources deployed to assist the Taliban in rounding up church leaders, women, journalists, and lawyers who put terrorists away.

Glenn also interviews Tim Kennedy, an Afghanistan war veteran and president of Sheepdog Response who partnered with SaveOurAllies.org to sneak past the Taliban and bring thousands to safety. He details the moment the bomb went off when he was on the ground at the Kabul airport and addresses the Taliban kill list. "They will kill babies, execute women, and cut your tongue out. That's just the G-rated stuff."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray ripped into President Joe Biden's latest speech in which our commander in chief touted the Afghanistan withdrawal as an "extraordinary success" that was "designed to save American lives" — despite the loss of 13 of America's finest, our military equipment in the hands of our enemies, and scores of Americans and allies still trapped in Afghanistan.

"This was not a success by any stretch of the imagination and people need to be held accountable," Glenn asserted. "Because if this is allowed to stand, and these people are just allowed to continue on with no ramifications, you don't not want to see what our military will turn into. I am telling you now, we will become the darkest force ever, ever to walk the earth. With our technology, and our resources, with our fighting machines that soon can be run robotically, we will make the Nazis look like rookies ... this must not continue!"

Glenn then played a video clip from the speech in which President Biden claimed that the "Taliban has made public commitments, broadcast on television and radio across Afghanistan, on safe passage for anyone wanting to leave, including those who worked alongside Americans."

"Anyone who says, 'Oh, they're going to let them through their checkpoint,' doesn't know their ass from their elbow!" Glenn responded. "They have no idea what is going on, or they are lying. So, Mr. President, which one is it? Do you not really know what's going on? If so, the 25th Amendment should be invoked. If you do know what's going on, then you should be impeached for lying to the American people on such a grand scale, it's staggering!"
