Amazing: 3 missing Ohio women escape kidnappers after nearly a decade

After nearly 10 years after their disappearance, three Ohio women were miraculously found alive Monday just south of downtown Cleveland.

TheBlaze.com reports that one of the women told a 911 dispatcher the person who had taken her was gone, and she pleaded for police officers to come and get her, saying, "I'm free now."

On a recorded 911 call Monday, Berry declared, “I’m Amanda Berry. I’ve been on the news for the last 10 years.”

She said she had been taken by someone and begged for police officers to arrive at the home on Cleveland’s west side before he returned.

“I’ve been kidnapped, and I’ve been missing for 10 years,” she told the dispatcher. “And I’m here. I’m free now.”

Below is the 911 call of Amanda Berry following her rescue:

Police said a 52-year-old man was among those arrested. They released no names and gave no details about the others arrested or what charges they might face. However, Cleveland.com reports that police arrested the owner of the house, Ariel Castro, who has lived in the house since 1992. “Records show he was arrested for domestic  violence in 1993, but a grand jury declined to indict him,” the report adds.

"An amazing development," Glenn said upon reading the news report. "First of all, it's incredible that the women survived. It's really amazing the defense mechanisms we have. It's truly amazing on what we can endure and what we will endure for ten years."

The remarkable story reminded Glenn of a gift he received after the Restoring Love event in Washington D.C. from the family of Hugh Stafford, a veteran who had been held in a Vietnamese prison camp.

"I want to show it to you on television tonight," Glenn told his radio audience. "Here's a guy who was in prison for about ten years in Vietnam, and one of the things that he wrote was, am I going to be mad at my loved ones, because they went on with their life, and they had to, because they thought I was dead, but will I be mad?"

Transitioning back to the newly freed women, Glenn noted that there must be so much going through their minds. At least one of the families knew the man who took the girls. They grew up in the same neighborhood and he was a bus driver up until last fall for the local school.

"It is amazing to me the evil that exists and the evil that is in our own communities," Glenn said.

It's incredible to think that these women were hidden just a few miles away from their homes for ten years without being discovered.

"How do you hide this for ten years?" Pat asked.

A local reporter interviewed the neighbor who helped the girl after he heard her screaming. He was beside himself at the possibility of the three women being trapped there for ten years without knowing. Even though he didn't know what was happening inside his neighbors home, he did have a gut feeling something was wrong there.

"That's what's so amazing," Glenn said.

The neighbor knew that something was wrong in that house.

"That is the gift of fear," he added. "It is the gift of fear.  It is a gift given the each of us. Remember when I have said in the past, there's going to come a time when you are going to hear stop, turn around, go the other way.  Do it."

"It's not just stop, town around, go the other way.  If you feel there's something wrong, you should follow up on that.  You should follow.  There's something wrong here. I'm telling you, as the darkness grows darker, the light will grow lighter. Darkness is merely a shadow — one can't grow without the other.  And so the light will become lighter. Your senses — if you work on it — your senses will become stronger," Glenn said.

Glenn shared that he gets these feelings a lot at book signings. He meets so many people that it's hard to connect with all of them, but from time to time, someone will approach him and he'll get a gut feeling or a prompting to say something.

"I can usually sense in people things," Glenn said, "and Saturday [at a book signing], this guy comes in line, and he looks fine and I have no idea what's going on in his life, but he looks fine, he smiles at me and says, 'Hi, Mr. Beck, how are you?'  I said 'good', signed his book, and I immediately hear, 'tell him everything is going to be okay'."

But the man had already walked away and the line kept moving. Still holding on to that sense that he needed to talk to the man, Glenn eventually excused himself and was able to find and approach him.

"By the time I did that, he was out of the line and almost all the way over to the escalators, it's 50 feet from here.  And so I had to go around the line, around the curtains and go out to where he was. And now I feel really stupid, because as I'm approaching him, he's with two friends and they are laughing.  I'm like he seems fine.  He's fine.  I tap him on the shoulder and I said 'excuse me'.  He said, 'Hey…Oh hey'.  I said, 'I don't know what this means, but I just want you to know everything is going to be fine'," Glenn told listeners.

The man then broke down into tears.

"The reason I tell you this story is because this guy said similar things. He says 'I knew it, I just knew it. I would have pulled this heroic stuff last year.' What was it last year?" Glenn asked. 

"Listen. Listen to the spirit. Listen to that inner voice," Glenn continued. "There's something to it. Now, if that inner voice is saying go kill some people and go get me a ham sandwich, that's probably — that's something else. Something you probably want to not pay attention to that one, but listen to it, because we're all going to need it. And it really truly is a muscle. The more you exercise that muscle, the better it is."

Glenn Beck: One TERRIFYING thing is clear no matter who caused the Nord Stream pipeline leaks

Evidence strongly suggests that the Nord Stream pipeline leaks were the result of sabotage, and U.S. and European officials have been working to discover who could be behind the explosions that damaged the natural gas pipelines running from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea.

Was it Russia? Ukraine? Germany? But no matter who carried this out, it has put the entire world in grave danger, because if this is indeed an attack, it means that non-military key infrastructure outside Ukraine is now on the "target menu," warned Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It is so important for you to understand, this is now a non-military key infrastructure that has been destroyed," Glenn explained. "If Russia thinks we did it, they've already said, 'Nukes are now on the table.' That gives us a green light to use nukes," he added.

"This is non-military key infrastructure outside of the borders of Ukraine. To date, as far as we know, combat targets were either in Ukraine, or were military targets hit inside of Russia by Ukrainian Air Force or special forces. But the target menu now includes key civilian infrastructure: electricity, water utilities, energy production. That makes Russia more dangerous than ever. And that would be true no matter who carried out the attack," Glenn stated.

Now, the Russians are saying the Unted States did it, and the U.S. is saying it was Russia. But no matter who carried out the attack, "We are facing a Cuban Missile Crisis," said Glenn.

"This could end up being the biggest story of our lifetime and ... if it isn't played calmly by every side, this could be World War III," he continued. "Russia has already said that this gives them the right to use nuclear weapons as soon as they find out for sure who did it. That would be catastrophic, absolutely catastrophic."

The White House can try to spin inflation all day long (and it's trying very hard). But you feel the effects of President Joe Biden’s disastrous leadership every time you go to the grocery store or fill up your car. The American economy is on the brink of disaster after less than two years of a Democrat-controlled Congress and White House. And they’ve got plenty more destruction in the works.

The bottom line is they WANT you to get used to a lower living standard. So, what do you do? How do you prepare? What will food and fuel cost in the months ahead? What would the next Great Depression look like? How are you going to feel the effects of ESG and the Left’s war on oil?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck brings in a panel of economic experts to answer those questions. He’s joined by Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” and Jim Iuorio, a small business owner, stockbroker, and managing director of TJM Institutional Services. While both forecast the worst-case scenario for average Americans, they also offer a glimmer of hope to get us out of this mess.

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"So, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.
