Glenn reacts to SHOCKING story of baby snatched from parent’s arms

Editor's note: This story has been updated to reflect the fact that the five-month old baby was taken into protective custody on April 24th, 2013. This story originally indicated the baby had been with CPS for five months, which is incorrect.

It can't get any worse, can it? Everyday it seems like there is a new story that shows people losing more and more control over their own lives and the lives of their children. One minute, it's the ongoing gun grab happening in states across the country. The next, progressives like Melissa Harris-Perry is telling everyone that kids don't belong to parents, they belong to the collective. And then there comes a story so shocking, anyone with an ounce of common sense is left screaming at their neighbors to wake up before it's too late. It’s quite possibly the most shocking story Glenn has ever seen - armed officers and a child protection services worker storm into a home and literally take a baby from the mother’s arms and leave. It’s all caught on video, and the officer can be heard saying “I’m going to take your baby, don’t resist” before taking the child.

TheBlaze reports:

Anna and Alex Nikolayev are described as loving parents who took their baby, who has a heart murmur, to Sutter Memorial Hospital in Sacramento when he started exhibiting flu-like symptoms. The family has undergone plenty of doctor visits in the last five months for the their son’s heart, and were unsettled by the treatment he was receiving.

At one point, Anna says, a nurse came in and started giving the baby, named Sammy, medicine. When she asked what it was the nurse allegedly replied, “I don’t know.”

...

They later found out that medicine was antibiotics, which Anna claims the doctor told her Sammy shouldn’t have received.

After doctors started discussing heart surgery, the Nikolayevs decided they wanted a second opinion. They weren’t categorically opposed to the procedure, but they wanted a different doctor.

The doctors at Sutter Memorial allegedly argued against consulting other health experts, pressuring her to stay put. Anna remained firm. She took her baby from the hospital without a proper discharge, and went straight to Kaiser Permanente Hospital.

Doctors there said the baby was safe to go home with his parents, one writing in the paperwork: “I do not have concern for the safety of the child at home with his parents.”

...

The next day police showed up at the Nikolayev’s home with representatives from Child Protective Services (CPS). Alex went outside to meet them, where he says he was “pushed against the building.” When he asked if he was being placed under arrest, he said they “smacked me down onto the ground [and] yelled out, ‘I think I got the keys to the house.’”

WATCH:

"Yesterday a judge says the baby can go back to the parents and the parents have control," Glenn explained. "Well, thank you very much.  The one word, the keyword here is the last one:  Control.  The parents have control.  The State is doing everything they can to convince you that they have control over absolutely everything in your life, even your children."

Glenn explained that this story is just the latest example of progressives thinking they know what is best for children. He brought up Melissa Harris-Perry's MSNBC promo where she said parents need to give up this idea of private ownership of children and start thinking of them as part of the collective. Progressives like Harris-Perry seem to think that once the elites are allowed to make decisions for the masses, everything will be better.

"No, that's when we'll start making the wrong decisions.  Who cares about my child more:  The State or me?  Get the hell off my land; get your hands off my child," Glenn said.

"You also have Common Core doing the same thing," Glenn said. " Common Core is about control, control over the teachers, control over you, control over your children."

"It's all about control and that's why we are releasing today a new book that we rushed in, and we tried to make this the quintessential book, the book that tells you everything that is true that no one else will tell you.  We set the record straight once and for all and we made it cheap.  We made it, what is it, $8 or $9 now?  We made it in paperback so you could put it in your back pocket and keep it with you.  You could throw it in your briefcase and keep it with you.  We've made it cheap enough so you could buy a couple of copies so you could give it to somebody else because I got news for ya, gang:  If we cannot defend our Constitution, if we cannot argue with facts, the Second Amendment, we lose.  We lose.  Because they are seizing control," Glenn said.

"I think that if we all put our heads together and we start learning the truth about guns, we start learning the truth about what has really transpired in our country in the years past, what control and gun control really means all around the world, we're it, gang.  This is it.  There is no other country on the face of the Earth that has the Second Amendment.  No other place on the face of the Earth recognizes the natural right for you to protect yourself and your children against intruders or an out‑of‑control government.  This is the only one.  If we lose the Second Amendment, we lose the First Amendment.  We lose the Third, the Fourth, the Fifth, the Fifteenth, the Seventeenth, we lose them all."

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
