WATCH: The most emotional morning meeting you’ve ever seen

If you’ve been following the show, you know the story of Justina Pelletier, the teenage girl taken from her family by the state because the parents disagreed with the diagnosis from doctors at Boston Children’s Hospital. Yesterday, Justina’s father Lou broke the court’s gag order and spoke to Glenn on TV and radio. And now this morning a motion of contempt was filed against him for standing up for his daughter and the rights of the family.

In the morning meeting, Glenn heard about the contempt charges for the first time – resulting in one of the most emotional and revealing behind-the-scenes segments produced for the TV show.

    What is it going to take to make the people of this country wake up to the Tyranny in our country?


    “Government is not the solution, it’s the problem” – R. Reagan

    • Jonathan D. Stull

      quite frankly it’s going to take the taking away of our precious cell phones and the cancellations of all of our stupid reality/dancing/”talent” shows that we choose to watch instead of real stories that NEED to be heard and fought for like this one that will wake the rest of the country up. I hope everyone is happy with what they chose to ignore, they made this bed, and i hope it is filled with bugs that bite HARD for them, that’s what it’s going to take to wake America up

          Perhaps he’s merely learned that it sucks to live Godlessly… there’s a reason the young indestructibles hurl vitriol, and it seems that only time and temperance can change a person’s more base tendencies (back?) to the truly needful.

          Many of the more reasoned voices here used to be full of piss and vinegar, but I’d wager more than not have had their own actions be the force that guides one’s own nose back to that cup of filth.

        If anyone has read any of God’s word, they should know that when you turn your back on Him, He will turn His back on you! Believe me, our backs have been turned! Uniting and a collective effort could change many things. But we are sliding further away. We have so much power as a united ‘We The People”but we won’t use it. We go and reward the very ones that are destroying our land and way of life. He’s right. It will happen to all of us, just as in history past.

        • Suzie Nunnally Clary

          He never turns his back on anyone. He’s always knocking. But when we turn away, he won’t protect us (though the prayers of the saved will help). He’s always for us. Jesus said he didn’t come to judge, but that sin judges us. It is the unrepentant sin that will destroy us.

          • Anonymous

            You are right. He never turns his back on us. We turn our back on him in rebellion. Since we refuse to repent of our sin and rebellion we get the punishment we deserve. Read the old testament and you will see this time after time.

          • Suzie Nunnally Clary

            The OT also shows year after year, century after century, God’s long-suffering and grace towards those who continue in rebellion. His love never diminishes. His highest will for us is to be in unity with him. Yet if our hearts want to be slaves to something else, he will let us go to it… old or new Testament.

          What I’m seeing here is government want to divide us further for their control, Common core you cannot bond with your child in helping them with third grade math or home school and that parents are stupid. Now with doctors you lose your bond with your doctors you have for years, now by the government limit choice you get a puppet doctor under their control your just cog number 666 ,and they will follow orders just like Nazi soldiers in death camps, with no bond give to give ration care treatments or no care when you need it or lie nothing can be done to you !! The royal elite want to American workers become expendable cogs of none thinkers ,and divide with no bonds for each other or caring and to no have feelings for ones in need for control for good of royal elites slave collective work force !! This slave collective work force will be like a bunch of dumb sheep not smart enough to say no,or know they have the right say no and be a individual and to stand up for each other and fight for each other against this click of the evil royal elites !! All cogs who are not useful to the slave collective will be terminated !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you Glenn for giving this family a voice.

    There is nothing you can do to stop the NSA, CIA or the DOJ. They are not true branches of our government’s system and they are not under the control of the president.

    Go back to the starvation death of Terri Schiavo in Florida. Family just wanted to care for her, but the state and her husband wanted to remarry so they killed her instead. Americans should have stood up then and they had better now.

  • Amy Williams

    What frightens me, is this conundrum…

    If you don’t do enough to protect and care for your children – the government will take them away. Now, if you do “too much” – the government will take away your children.

    As the powers at both ends of that spectrum increase – the middle ground – where our rights reside – will shrink until it disappears.

  • BurntOranges

    I must be missing something within this story. A family’s teenage daughter is taken from them, by the state, because they disagree with the doctors diagnosis? I just don’t get it??

    • SirDanMur

      Their daughter has Mitochondrial diseases, has since she was born, has been treated for it for years by one hospital. Their doctor changed hospitals, so they went to Boston Childrends for treatment. the doctors there claim that she does not have Mitochondrial disease, that the parents are making it up, and instead they are saying she has a psychological condition imposed on her by her parents which causes her to believe that she is afflicted when she really is not.

  • S Clarkson

    And once these arogant doctors kill her with the wrong treatment, they will shrug, walk away and say oh well. We did what we thought best. She isn’t a person to them. She is an experiment.

      I’ve experienced a CPS case with a family member. While I was still in disbelief and hadn’t figured things out yet, I said to myself that children are not people to the agency; they are a docket number. I was right! I’ve been fighting back since. CPS has abusive power with the full backing of the courts and all collateral players in the system. It appears that not one of them has a conscience.

      • Bones2Bones

        CPS Funding is based on the number of children CPS removes from homes and place with foster family’s. More likely than not once a child enters the program they will be sexually, emotionally and physically abused. Either because the foster families are mentally ill, simply doing it for the money or are persons intent on ritually abusing children. CPS record of protecting children is beyond dismal. It should be called Child Perverts Society or Child Punishment Service that would better describe what these people really do to children. There is no way CPS abuse could be written of as unintentional-no way!

  • WyomingMother

    This breaks my heart because I know what it is like to be pushed into a corner by a hospital. You HAVE no rights when it comes to your children. Don’t want immunizations? They’ll threaten to take them away. Disagree with a medical decision and want a second opinion? Be prepared to face a fight like no other. Looking for an honest answer – keep looking. It’s devastating for a parent to be told that “the state will take custody” if you don’t agree to what treatment someone decides appropriate.

    There are many videos on the Nikolayev home invasion by “social workers.” (Watch how the cops break into a home with their hands on their guns to snatch a baby. The Mom was alerted and set up a hidden camera.)

    Watch these 122 videos on the same thing.

    Justina Pelletier’s story is one of the more stunning David vs. Goliath scenarios of modern-day medicine. This could absolutely be me facing a contempt order as my child was hospitalized with a less commonly diagnosed disorder, PANDAS, and we,too disagreed with the doctors. As parents of these children, you ache terribly for their lost childhood due to their disorders — to be taken from your parents at such a vulnerable time is a crime. Thank you, Glenn Beck, for aiming your slingshot at Boston Children’s Hospital. Why there is not more public outcry for big medicine pitting themselves against a caring family is incredibly sad!

  • Alice Kegelman Wells

    They tried to do the same thing to me and my husband at Boston Childrens hospital. I tried to contact a friend of the parents but he sent me here and I can’t find him or his tel number. I can really help them.

    This is not the United States any longer- not the one I was born and grew up in. When the government dictates what your children can learn, sends the FCC into local media stations to monitor and control content output, when HOSPITALS are allowed to kidnap, torture and kill your children- no, this is not the United States I was born and grew up in. It’s not the United States our Founding Fathers created and left for us. It is the National Socialist Republic of Amerika. And yes, I intentionally misspelled the last word. When the man who is supposed to lead our country gets elected by fraudulent means and then takes executive orders too numerous to count without Congressional or Supreme Court approval, he is not a president, he is a dictator, a bully and a tyrant who must be overthrown. When that same tyrant orders unmanned drones in the air to kill his own people without even the benefit a trial, we are not living in a democratic republic, we are living in a nazi state. THIS MUST STOP!!! We can start with little Justina, and send a message loud and clear, LEAVE OUR CHILDREN ALONE! Please spread the word, and even if you can only donate $1, please go to, to help the Pellitiers survive to continue their fight to bring Justina home before Boston Children’s Hospital succeeds in killing her! Let’s all do anything and everything we can to help the Pelletiers free Justina and get her back on the medicine she so desperately needs before it’s too late! May God and His Heavenly Host watch over Justina and the Pelletier Family. Amen.

    Yeah, those mean parents were overmedicating her into all that ice-skating.

    Now, us wiser doctors have correctly diagnosed her with a somatoform disorder, and look! she is so much healthier in her wheelchair, instead of that nasty ice-skating!

    Yeah, it’s all in her head, and it’s all in your head if you question us, so we gag you so you don’t hurt her or yourself anymore!

    Oh, the wisdumb of those so-called doctors! — And their supporters.

    Sarcasm just doesn’t relieve it for me. Anger at the so-called medical system is rising to a fever pitch.

    Tell everyone about this, warn them of misuse of power they assume unto themselves, and aid the Pelletier family any way you can. I have no money to give, myself, but I can and will talk about this to anyone who would be sympathetic to this case.

    For the institutionalized assault upon his 1st Amendment rights of Speech and Petition; and his 14th Amendment right of Association, Pelletier has earned (after a year of torture) a pair of federal writs issued for and served by U.S. Marshalls upon the judge that issued the gag order: Mandemus (for our Constitution) and Habeas Corpus (for his black-robed Body). Is this a case for Gerry Spence?

    Child services have NO oversight and they operate outside of Law through “Administrative” code. They violate the privacy and parental rights of anyone they can. Child services causes more damage than some of the most abusive parents I’ve seen. Combine that department with an overzealous healthcare institution and you get hellish consequences. “Consent by the governed” is in OUR Declaration of Independence. The question is how does one remove consent when it is a “Crime” to do so. Freedom is Slavery.

    In an attempt to expose, confront, and stop DCFS abuse I have started the Liberty Scraps channel. I will be seeking out and posting videos that highlight the fight against DCFS / CPS corruption. We must fight and scrap to maintain, preserve, and expand upon the few scraps of liberty our current police state allows.

    I am a 21 year police veteran and current police detective that has actively investigated hundreds of child abuse cases. I am also a victim of DCFS corruption. I offer the following advice: Do not ever speak to DCFS…When they come to your home, step outside and close the door behind you…Collect their business card and listen to the allegation against you…Then exert your right to reman silent and do so…Do not answer ANY questions. Do not allow them into your home. Do not allow them to see or interview your children. Do not sign anything. Do not provide them with ANY information about your children or family. If you have time, record the at the door encounter. If your children are old enough, teach them how to exercise their right to remain silent; children should exercise their right to remain silent if interviewed at school or if DCFS comes back to your home with an investigative warrant (school interviews can be avoided by home schooling your children). Any investigative warrant obtained solely on an uncorroborated anonymous allegation to the DCFS hotline is illegal; you should seek an attorney to file a federal civil rights lawsuit under 42 USC 1983.
