‘This is a horror show’: You won’t believe the condition of one NYC public school

A shocking new report does not reflect well on the New York City public school system. The New York Post is reporting PS 106, is allocated $2.9 million to serve a low-income population in Far Rockaway, Queens. 98% of the school’s student body is eligible for free lunch. And as a ‘Title 1 school,’ it receives additional federal funds.

But there’s one small problem, whistleblowers now claim the school is in complete and utter disrepair. The students have no math or reading and writing books to compliment the Common Core curriculum that has been implemented in New York. The school’s 234 students have no gym or art classes, and the library has been described as a “junk room.” The school nurse does not have an office equipped with a sink, refrigerator, or cot. And there are no substitute teachers. Instead, students in classrooms without teachers are reallocated amongst other classes.

To make matters worse, the Post reports a classroom that includes learning-disabled children doesn’t have the required special-ed co-teacher. Meanwhile, parents have said about 40 kindergartners are forced sit in dilapidated trailers that reek of “animal urine,” while rats and squirrels noisily scamper in the walls and ceiling.

The principle, Marcella Sills, who joined PS 106 nine years ago, rarely shows up to school despite her $128,207 per year salary.

“If the claims are true, it might be the worst school ever in America,” Glenn said. “Let me ask you a question: When will we, as a people decide: I don't need to have my kid in your crappy school… I have a right to pull my kid out of your school. If I were a parent there, and I didn't send my kid to that school, they would come and collect my kid, because they would say that I was being a bad parent. When do we have the right to stand up and say: Who does the state think they are?”

There are several disturbing layers to this story, but one involves a lack of parental input and concern. While the Post report of the story contains quotes from several frustrated parents, where are the other 200 plus parents whose children attend that school?

“Now, the problem here is, there are very few parents who care,” Glenn said. “There are very few parents sitting down at a meal with their kids saying ‘How was school today?’ ‘We have watched Fat Albert.’ ‘What do you mean?’”

That is not to say, however, the school boards and state/local governments that run the schools are not to blame. In fact, they bare the brunt of the responsibility. But as citizens, we bare the responsibility of fighting back against the crimes we see.

“This is a horror show,” Glenn said. “And people always talk about the greed of those people who aren't willing to pay their fair share in taxes, the greed of companies, but nobody is willing to talk about the greed of the politician. Nobody is willing to talk about the greed of the government because the government is deemed by the press as benevolent. It's not benevolent. It's fire. Unless you treat it like fire, it will burn you. If you are alert and knowledgeable, you will be able to make sure that it remains in its rightful place.”

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:
