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.’”

"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."

On the morning of Aug. 15, Asma was a free woman in Kabul. She wore Western clothes. Traveled safely alone. Attended college in a neighboring country with the money her parents had saved. By that evening, her entire world had changed.

For the first time in her life, Asma was confronted with the reality of the Taliban. The horror stories she heard growing up were no longer the nightmare of her parents' generation. They were hers, too. Faced with the impossible decision to stay with her family and risk imminent torture or death, she chose to live, and take on the Taliban face-to-face.

Asma's bravery also led to the rescue of over 150 Afghan college women. She tells Glenn she was willing to die before she let the Taliban take her or the other women. But she didn't do it alone. Her sister Azada, helplessly watching the horror unfold from the U.S., quickly turned to her father's contact list. What follows is a miracle evacuation story that ends with a sisters' reunion and hope for a new future. These brave Afghan sisters have a message for those in their home country still trapped, for the leaders of this country, and for the men and women in uniform (and their families) who may believe the American sacrifices for Afghanistan were in vain.

Finally, a note about the other heroes in the rescue story. The movement of the seven buses of college women into the Kabul airport was a chain with about 8-10 links. Had any one of those links not been present or broken, the young women would not have made it into the airport for evacuation, and three young women taken by the Taliban would not have been recovered.

Glenn and his team would like to give a special thanks to Francisco from Arcis International, Wade and Jim from Commercial Task Force, Blaine from E3 Ranch Foundation, Michael and his crew from Kam Air, No One Left Behind, Samaritan's Purse, and Charmaine, Chris, Geno, John, Lori, Rob, Rudy & the Ground Team from The Nazarene Fund.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.
