Nanny Bloomberg to ban baby formula?

New York City mayor, Michael Bloomberg, or ‘Nanny Bloomberg’ as he is more affectionately referred to, is at it again – this time targeting mothers and their newborns.

On radio this morning, TheBlaze’s Robyn Walensky reported that Bloomberg is offering incentives to hospitals that encourage mothers to breastfeed their newborns, in an effort to decrease the use of baby formula. Nurses and other hospital staff at participating hospitals will explain the benefits of breastfeeding to all women who ask for formula, as to encourage them to breastfeed.

“First it was just sugary drinks, then it was transfats. Then it was the size of things. Now he's taking on breast and baby formula,” Glenn asked.

While the leftists and progressives usually applaud the Mayor’s overbearing initiatives, going after moms takes the idea of a nanny state to a whole new level. Even token liberal, Whoppi Goldberg, has spoken out about Bloomberg’s latest plan:

GOLDBERG: It's very nice, but back off, you know? It's hard enough, you know? I'm sorry. You got some bonehead coming and saying, "Oh, why can't you do it? Why aren't you doing it? What's wrong with you? Why can't you do it?" You know what, Mr. Mike, I love you. You know this. I love you as our mayor. This is not your place. Back off this.

“I love it,” Glenn said sarcastically in response to Goldberg’s remarks.

It’s more than a little hypocritical for someone like Goldberg to suddenly speak out against over-regulation, when she has been in favor of actions like this up until now.

“I love that. It's okay because the other things you've invaded we've liked. So they're okay,” Stu said. “But this one we don't like. So back off?”

We can all agree that telling women they are not allowed to feed their children baby formula is insane (especially when you consider the fact that something like abortion is legal, but baby formula would not be), but progressives like Goldberg cannot have it both ways. You are either for expansion of government and federal overreach or you’re not.

“Sorry, you can't have it both ways, Whoopi,” Glenn said. “You can't say, ‘You go ahead and just regulate some things, but not the things that I like.’ Can't have it that way. That's not the way dictatorships work.”

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?
