DISTURBING: China fills capsules with human baby flesh

This morning Glenn shared a disturbing report released this morning on TheBlaze.com. Since last August, customs officials in South Korea say to have intercepted between 17,000 and 17,500 pills filled with some type of finely ground white powder. The powder is said to be a stamina enhancer and medical panacea in parts of Asia.

“What are in these pills? Finely ground human baby flesh,” Glenn said.

According to The Daily Mail:

The grim trade is being run from China where corrupt medical staff are said to be tipping off medical companies when babies are aborted or delivered still-born.

The tiny corpses are then bought, stored in household refrigerators in homes of those involved in the trade before they are removed and taken to clinics where they are placed in medical drying microwaves.

Once the skin is tinder dry, it is pummeled into powder and then processed into capsules along with herbs to disguise the true ingredients from health investigators and customs officers.

If that isn’t disturbing enough, The Blaze reports that while many are disturbed by this practice, officials in South Korea are equally as concerned about the sanitary safety of ingesting human remains. Neither China’s Health Industry nor their Food and Drug Administration have responded on this issue.

“If you have a Food and Drug Administration, and you haven’t shut down the ‘baby pill industry’ …you’re a worthless Food and Drug Administration,” Glenn said.

Glenn explained that the sources on the story are The Blaze, The Telegraph, BBC, and The Daily Mail. “This is a horrific, horrific story,” Glenn said. “This is not an internet rumor.”

“And some of these weren’t fetuses,” Pat added.

“Listen to this,” Glenn said. “Even more horrifying, if possible, some are now reporting that it may not have only been aborted or still-born babies used in the pills. It is possible that some of these children were born, and left to die, in what are called China’s dying rooms, before they were ground into capsules – because they are born into families that already had one child.”

Glenn brought up the case from a Chicago hospital of the children who survived abortions and were left to die alone in a closet, while Barack Obama was an Illinois Senator.

“He voted against the bill that would have prevented that when he was a state legislator,” Pat said.

Stu also noted that the policy behind China’s dying room, the one child law, is one that this administration does not stand up against. In fact, Vice President Joe Biden has said that not only does he fully understand the policy, he also doesn’t second guess it.

“What world do we live in?” Pat asked. “That’s amazing.”

Glenn pointed out volatile state of the world. The Nazis and communists gained political clout in Greece this week, by winning about 16% of power. John Kerry met with who is most likely going to be the next President of Egypt – a leader inside the Muslim Brotherhood, whose cleric came on state and said they were going to have a Muslim caliphate and move the capitol to al Kuds. Al Kuds is Jerusalem – the media remains silent. This administration has invited the very same Muslim Brotherhood into the White House to meet with the President, and no one says anything. “Meanwhile our President is appointing Muslim Brotherhood people at the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, the TSA, what are we insane?” Glenn asked

“If there's anyone within sound of my voice that thinks we're dealing with the world that you grew up in, you're sadly mistaken,” Glenn added

“We have lost our way. We're heading for profound darkness. We can't conquer darkness with more darkness. You don't conquer hate with more hate. The only thing that works is love and God – that’s it,” Glenn said.

He continued, pointing out that in China, we have a society that is grounding up babies, and the rest of the world is pointing at China and calling them the future.

Glenn noted the significance of the story behind WWI. “The real story on WWI didn’t come out until about 1945,” Glenn said. “The real story of WWI was that the power shifted to America, and America set the table, set the direction for the world. That didn’t happen in WWII, it happened in WWI. Why? Because everybody need out money, and we gladly loaned it to them.”

Glenn next asked, how is it possible that the greatest navy of all time, the navy of an empire the sun never set on – the British Empire, could have the strongest navy in the world, and by 1939 they had no navy? “They were begging us for ships,” Glenn said. “How is that possible? Because England borrowed money from us, and Woodrow Wilson demanded that they sink their navy.”

“That’s the real story of WWI,” Glenn explained. “Everybody had to borrow money from somebody, and they borrow it from us. And we were the only ones with the gold.”

“What is that we put our heart into anymore? What do we even stand for anymore? Who're we?” Glenn asked. “We used to be a nation that used that could recognize evil when we saw it. We don’t recognize the evil in China, we deny it.”

Glenn pointed out that it was only 1981 when we recognized that the Soviet Union was evil. It wasn’t because of where they were from, it was because they were communists. “It’s evil,” Glenn said. “We refuse to even say it anymore.”

No one including Glenn ever thought they would hear a story as horrifying as this one five years ago. Especially from a country where our Vice President has traveled to and told them that he understands and doesn’t question the policies that led to it.

“We win if we reconnect with who we truly are, and the values we've always held up,” Glenn said. “We win. Now is the time.”

I think we can all agree, both on the Left and the Right, that children who have been caught up in illegal immigration is an awful situation. But apparently what no one can agree on is when it matters to them. This past weekend, it suddenly — and even a little magically — began to matter to the Left. Seemingly out of nowhere, they all collectively realized this was a problem and all rushed to blame the Trump administration.

Here's Rachel Maddow yesterday:

I seem to remember getting mocked by the Left for showing emotion on TV, but I'll give her a pass here. This is an emotional situation. But this is what I can't give her a pass on: where the heck was this outrage and emotion back in 2014? Because the same situation going on today — that stuff Maddow and the rest of the Left have only just now woken up to — was going on back in July 2014! And it was arguably worse back then.

I practically begged and pleaded for people to wake up to what was going on. We had to shed light on how our immigration system was being manipulated by people breaking our laws, and they were using kids as pawns to get it done. But unlike the gusto the Left is using now to report this story, let's take a look at what Rachel Maddow thought was more important back in 2014.

On July 1, 2014, Maddow opened her show with a riveting monologue on how President Obama was hosting a World Cup viewing party. That's hard-hitting stuff right there.

On July 2, 2014, Maddow actually acknowledged kids were at the border, but she referenced Health and Human Services only briefly and completely rushed through what was actually happening to these kids. She made a vague statement about a "policy" stating where kids were being taken after their arrival. She also blamed Congress for not acting.

See any difference in reporting there from today? That "policy" she referenced has suddenly become Trump's "new" policy, and it isn't Congress's fault… it's all on the President.

She goes on throughout the week.

On July 7, 2014, her top story was something on the Koch brothers. Immigration was only briefly mentioned at the end of the show. This trend continued all the way through the week. I went to the border on July 19. Did she cover it? Nope. In fact, she didn't mention kids at the border for the rest of the month. NOT AT ALL.

Do you care about immigrant kids who have been caught in the middle of a broken immigration system or not?

Make up your minds. Is this an important issue or not? Do you care about immigrant kids who have been caught in the middle of a broken immigration system or not? Do you even care to fix it, or is this what it looks like — just another phony, addicted-to-outrage political stunt?

UPDATE: Here's how this discussion went on radio. Watch the video below.

Glenn gives Rachel Maddow the benefit of the doubt

Rachel Maddow broke down in tears live on her MSNBC show over border crisis.

Progressives think the Obamas are a gift to the world. But their gift is apparently more of the metaphorical kind. It doesn't extend to helpful, tangible things like saving taxpayers money. Illinois has approved $224 million to pay for street and transportation upgrades around the planned site of the Obama Presidential Center. The catch is that Illinois taxpayers will have to cover $200 million of that cost. For a presidential museum.

Eight years of multiplying the national debt wasn't enough for Barack Obama. Old fleecing habits die hard. What's another $200 million here and there, especially for something as important as an Obama tribute center?

That's all well and good except Illinois can't even fund its pension system. The state has a $137 billion funding shortfall. That means every person in Illinois owes $11,000 for pensions, and there is no plan to fix the mess. Unless Illinois progressives have discovered a new kind of math, this doesn't really add up. You can't fund pensions, but you're going to figure out a way to milk the public for another $200 million to help cover the cost of a library?

It's hard to imagine who in their right mind would think this will be money well spent. Well, except for maybe Chicago Mayor and former Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel who said, "The state's… investment in infrastructure improvements near the Obama Center on the South Side of Chicago is money well spent."

Some presidential overreach lasts longer than others.

The spending has already been signed into law, even though the Obama library has not received construction approval yet. Part of the holdup is that the proposed site is on public land in historic Jackson Park. That doesn't seem very progressive of the Obamas, but, you know, for certain presidents, you go above and beyond. It's just what you do. Some presidential overreach lasts longer than others.

Here's the thing about taxing the peasants so the king can build a fancy monument to himself – it's wrong. And completely unnecessary. The Obamas have the richest friends on the planet who could fund this project in their sleep. If the world simply must have a tricked-out Obama museum, then let private citizens take out their wallets voluntarily.

As the Mercury Museum proved this weekend, it is possible to build an exhibit with amazing artifacts that attracts a ton of visitors – and it cost taxpayers approximately zero dollars.

'The fool builds walls': China blasts Trump over tariffs

I can picture it now: Thousands of years ago, Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor of China, standing before hordes of his followers, in the Qin Dynasty, with a bright red bamboo hat on, and chanting, "Build that wall!"

It took a couple centuries to build the thing, but it got built. And it has been carefully maintained over the last 2,000 years, but, today, the Great Wall of China is so massive that astronauts can see it during good weather conditions from the lower part of low Earth orbit. The wall boasts over 3,000 miles of towers and brick embankments, with over 1,200 miles of natural defensive barriers. It's worth mentioning that the Chinese government is also exceptionally good at imposing digital walls, so much so that China ranks worst in the world for internet freedom.

So it's a little strange to hear an editorial run by a major news network in China criticized President Trump for his proposal to build a large wall along the southern border of America.

"Following the path of expanding and opening up is China's best response to the trade dispute between China and the United States, and is also the responsibility that major countries should have to the world," the author wrote. "The wise man builds bridges, the fool builds walls."

Similarly, the Pope told reporters in 2016, "A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not the gospel."

Don't throw stones at people who want to build walls when you live in place surrounded by walls.

If you've been to the Vatican, you know that it is surrounded by enormous walls. The same goes for all the celebrities who live in heavily walled compounds—a safety measure—but who have also vehemently criticized President Trump's plans to build a wall.

You know the adage: "People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones at other people's glass houses." Perhaps the phrase needs an update: Don't throw stones at people who want to build walls when you live in place surrounded by walls.

An immaculate Nazi doctor hovers over newborn. He probes and sneers at it. "Take it away," he says. This is the very real process that Nazi doctors undertook during the era of Nazi Germany: Nazi eugenics, the studious, sterile search to find children who would define a pure breed for the German lineage. The Übermensch.

During a speech to a delegation of Italy's Family Association in Rome on Saturday, Pope Francis referred to this cruel Nazi practice, which he used as a comparison to the increasingly popular process throughout Europe of "ending" birth defects, by offering abortions to women who have babies with chromosomal defects.

Here are two passages from the Pope's remarks:

I have heard that it's fashionable, or at least usual, that when in the first months of pregnancy they do studies to see if the child is healthy or has something, the first offer is: let's send it away.

And:

I say this with pain. In the last century the whole world was scandalized about what the Nazis did to purify the race. Today we do the same, but now with white gloves.

When CNN got the quote, and it shocked them so much that they had to verify the quote with the Vatican—in other words, it didn't fit the usual narrative.

It didn't fit the usual narrative.

The Pope also addressed claims that he has dedicated himself to LGBTQ causes:

Today, it is hard to say this, we speak of "diversified" families: different types of families. It is true that the word "family" is an analogical word, because we speak of the "family" of stars, family" of trees, "family" of animals ... it is an analogical word. But the human family in the image of God, man and woman, is the only one. It is the only one. A man and woman can be non-believers: but if they love each other and unite in marriage, they are in the image of God even if they don't believe.

The media have largely seen Pope Francis as the cool Pope, as the Obama of Catholicism. It'll be interesting to see how abruptly and severely that perspective changes.
