New reports emerge detailing questionable care at Boston Children’s Hospital

Glenn has been talking about the plight of 15-year-old Justina Pelletier and her family for a number of weeks now. Justina has been kept in Boston Children’s Hospital against her parent’s will since February. The medical facility took custody of her when her parents argued against their daughter’s diagnosis.

Justina was diagnosed with mitochondrial disease a few years ago and was able to live a normal life. In February, she got the flu and was taken to Boston Children’s Hospital to see a specialist. It was at that time the problems began.

A new team of doctors took over Pelletier’s case and immediately questioned her previous diagnosis. They re-diagnosed her with ‘somatoform disorder’ – a mental illness. Her parents, Lou and Linda Pelletier, were not allowed to take their child out of the hospital and were instead escorted out by security. Within four days, they lost custody of Justina.

Now it appears as though Justina isn’t the only child who has received questionable care from the hospital. In an original report, TheBlaze has discovered:

There is a hospital consistently ranked among the top in the United States in various pediatric fields. It has been hailed as having the best physicians and is the teaching hospital for the No. 1 medical school in the country.

But this hospital — Boston Children’s Hospital — is now the target of national debate regarding practices that have resulted in children being taken away from parents. It’s being called the “dark side to Children’s.”

Not only is there the case of a Connecticut teen (Justina Pelletier) who has been held at Boston Children’s Hospital for 10 months after her parents lost custody of her over accusations of medical child abuse – something they vehemently oppose — but there are now a handful of other similar stories coming to light where parents were stripped of their ability to oversee their child’s care at Children’s.

With the assistance of a whistleblower, TheBlaze has compiled a comprehensive report detailing several cases in which Boston Children’s Hospital has made questionable treatment decisions in relation to mitochondrial disease.

“I mean, you can't imagine. As my wife kept saying when we were talking about this story, how can that happen in America? You have to I guess suspend your disbelief that something like this just can't happen in America because it can, and it is happening in five cases now,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Something is radically wrong at that hospital.”

While Glenn has a lot of experience with children’s hospitals around the country because of his daughter Mary and has “supported children’s hospitals in every city” he has lived in, Glenn admitted he would not trust the care of his children to Boston Children’s Hospital.

“But I will tell you: If my child was sick, I would not bring them to Boston Children's Hospital. There is no way,” Glenn said. “With what I know at this point, there is no way I would admit my child to Boston Children's Hospital. There is something very wrong. “

To make matters worse, in the case of the Pelletier family, a gag order has been placed on the case, forbidding the family and the doctors involved from speaking out. That has made it all but impossible to raise awareness for this growing problem.

“They can't do any interviews. They can't talk about it. We can't reach out to them because they're under a gag order… That's wrong,” Glenn said emphatically. “I'm a parent… It goes against nature's laws. I really, truly believe it goes against nature's laws to tell a parent that they are no longer the parent and so they cannot speak out against what the State has done… That's my child…  I have a right!”

“They are taking these children away and then telling the parents they have no right to speak out, or they'll go to jail,” he continued. “And the parents, they know if they speak out, they will never get their kids back. What would you do?”

Just as he did last week, Glenn asked the audience to visit Mitoaction.org to learn more about the Pelletier’s case and to learn more about how to get involved. He also asked that people to share TheBlaze’s latest report about other incidents involving Boston Children’s Hospital.

“Please read this story and pass it on to a friend… This is everybody's child, and I don't mean that in a progressive way. I mean: If you don't say something about this with somebody else's child, who's going to say something when it's your child? Please. I beg you,” Glenn concluded. “This family is being so wronged by the State, and there is no other Christmas gift that you could give. Get together with your whole family. If you only have $100 and you're thinking, ‘You know, what can I get for Christmas?’ Talk to your kids. Your older kids would be able to understand… It's obscene. Anything you can do to help. Go to Mitoaction.org.”

The Capitol riot was foolish and tragic, but Pelosi's Select Committee "investigation" on the January 6 "insurrection" has devolved into a show trial complete with bad tears and bad acting. But this is just a charade designed to distract us.

What's going on behind closed doors is truly nefarious. The Biden White House and the U.S. national security apparatus are seizing that event to redefine domestic terrorism and expand the powers of government to prevent it. There is an alarming blueprint for sweeping government action called the "National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism," put together by the National Security Council.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the collusion between the Biden administration and Big Tech to surveil, root out, and silence America's deplorables – all in the name of national security.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.
