Set up? Tania sends Glenn out to inspect deadly poisonous tree

Last week we reported how Glenn’s wife Tania ‘accidentally’ flushed her wedding ring down the toilet just hours before their anniversary weekend. The story took an even stranger twist during the weekend getaway ‘celebration’ when Glenn was sent out to closely inspect a giant hive surrounded by deadly poisonous tree. Glenn told the amazing story of how he survived on radio today.

Read the transcript of the conversation below:

GLENN: All right. So up on the website at GlennBeck.com, there's a couple of pictures and then we'll just get off this, pictures of my anniversary trip, and you decide. Now Pat and Stu said that, you know, what happened was

PAT: Symbolic.

GLENN: Yeah, was symbolic.

PAT: A serious message.

GLENN: Now, here's what happened.

STU: I wouldn't say we said it. I would say that your wife made a statement about it.

PAT: Right. And we just related the statement she was making.

GLENN: So we go to this we go to this remote Gilligan's Island sort of place where you can just show up dead and no one will no one will miss you and you'll be like, "What happened?" "I don't know."

So I go and we're driving down we're driving down the road and my wife says and we're in this jungle. I mean, it's like a jungle. And she's like, whoa. Look at that. Look at those what are those hive things? We stop the car and it's like, you've got to go take a picture of that. And I'm like, all right. I don't know if that's a good idea.

So I get out of the car. Now there's a picture of the hive and they were everywhere in this jungle. And there's like no one around. This is like really, it's spooky. And so I go, I go up to it, and this is as close as I I won't go into the jungle. Surprise, I know. But I won't go into the jungle to take a picture of this because it's so damn spooky. And if you look at it and you zoom in on this picture, you can see this big black spot in the jungle and it's this hive that's got to be at least five feet.

STU: Hive of what?

GLENN: I have no idea. It's solid black. It's a nasty hive. I don't know if it's butterflies or spiders or people. I don't know what's in there.

STU: (Laughing.)

GLENN: But I don't want to find out, and it's every it's like out of a movie. Spooky.

See the black hives?

So my wife is like, go take a picture. Go you've got to get closer. Get a picture. And I'm like, no, I'm not going to get closer, honey. This is good enough for me. If you can't see, you can't see it in the picture. So you're going to have to zoom in because I'm not going in.

So then I go, I turn around and right where we've parked the car, there's a sign. Now, she's telling me go take a picture, in under these trees. But right next to it you'll see there's right next to her window, there's this giant and you can barely even notice it.

PAT: That's huge but it's not it's not in English and that's why she couldn't read it, right?

GLENN: It's just in English. It just says in read and white, warning.

PAT: Okay. And then it says the name of the three and it tells you it's poison, right?

GLENN: I've never heard of this tree, the Manchineel tree. And that's what the sign says: The leaves bark and fruits of these trees may contain a caustic sap which may be injurious if touched. Columbus described the small green fruits as death apples. The trees are common along the Caribbean shores. Avoid contact with any part of this tree.

Now, I've never heard of the Manchineel tree. Never heard of it. So we I'm like, wow. She's like, you should go up and touch it.

PAT: Are you hungry? Have an apple.

GLENN: Are you hungry? Those apples look delicious, don't they? And I'm like, eve, is that you? Here's what I go and look it up. Now, this is where we park our car. The sign is right outside my wife's window. She has just flushed our wedding ring help me. I think she's trying to kill me. Here's what it says: Danger: Manchineel trees. Don't let I love this: Don't let them spoil your vacation in Barbados. Now, this is from the country of Barbados where, which we were. This is where just what we happened to look at when I Googled Manchineel tree. The Manchineel trees grace Barbados' beaches providing shade from the blazing sun for locals and tourists alike as they enjoy themselves on the beach. And I'm like, there's a warning on this tree. This sounds nice. But the locals know something that most people don't. Remember, this is from the Barbados, like, tourist department. Those magnificent shade trees with their little apples are probably the most dangerous thing they'll encounter on their vacation in Barbados. The trees go up to 45 feet in height. They have dark gray bark with shiny green leaves and produce a small white green flowers. The apples are green when young and turn greenish yellow with a pleasant, sweet smelling fragrance when they ripen. Sounds good.

STU: Sounds great so far.

GLENN: Sounds fantastic. The leaves, the bark, the sap and the apple like fruit in the Manchineel, however, are all poison.

STU: Wait. The fruit, the bark?

GLENN: Contact with any of these will cause severe blistering or burning of the skin.

PAT: Yeah, but that's only from every part of the tree. So...

GLENN: You won't you will not believe the rest of this warning. We have to take a break. We'll come back with the rest of this warning. I've never heard of this tree. We continue to look it up. It's endangered. In Florida they are actually protecting this tree. Wait until you hear the rest of this warning on this tree. I've never heard of anything like it ever before. My wife is trying to kill me.

 

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."
