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.

 

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

We were live on the air when news broke of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned its controversial 1973 Roe v. Wadeopinion, concluding that there is no constitutional right to an abortion.

"The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," the syllabus of the decision reads.

As expected, the leftist outrage erupted instantaneously, fueled largely by the misinformed idea that overturning Roe v. Wade means abortion will be banned nationwide. But, as stated in the above-mentioned Supreme Court syllabus, the authority has actually been returned to individual states and their duly elected lawmakers.

One such misinformed leftist, Parkland shooting survivor Cameron Kasky, was infuriated that those awful Supreme Court justices "just voted to kill women." So he took to Twitter to urge people to go to the homes of said Supreme Court justices to "let them know how you feel."

"Go to the home of every Supreme Court justice who just voted to kill women. Let them know how you feel," Kasky tweeted.

The backlash was immediate:

Kasky decided to delete his original tweet because he is apparently "sick of republicans talking to [him]." But, unfortunately for Kasky, the internet is indeed forever:

Speaking from the White House, President Joe Biden dutifully helped spread the misinformation about the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and took the opportunity to prompt voters to elect more Democrats in November so that Congress can write abortion protections into law. Did the president just let slip the real reason Congress hasn't made any effort to start writing such laws in the nearly two months since Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion was "leaked" in early May?

CNN reporter tries to 'ambush' GOP candidate Kari Lake, IMMEDIATELY regrets it

CNN senior national reporter Kyung Lah thought she'd caught Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake off guard when she asked for an impromptu interview outside an event, but ended up sorely regretting her decision.

Lake, a former Fox news anchor, shook hands with Lah as she approached and immediately pointed out that the CNN reporter wasn't wearing a mask any more, a barbed reference to a contentious interview in October 2021, in which Lah smeared the GOP candidate as a “rising star of the right-wing and proud spreader of lies." Lah asked if Lake had “a minute to chat.”

“I’ll do an interview," Lake answered, "as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist? I didn’t think so, because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”

Lake then walked into the event, leaving Lah utterly speechless.

It looks like Lake gained quite a few fans on Twitter:

Kari Lake has been a longtime friend to "The Glenn Beck Program." She joined Glenn last August to tell Glenn why she left the corrupt world of media, what prompted her to enter "the even more corrupt world of politics," and how she plans to make a big difference in her battleground state of Arizona.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."
