Glenn talks to Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver about the Justina Pelletier case

On Monday, a Boston judge ruled to place 15-year-old Justina Pelletier in a Massachusetts foster care facility - Shared Living Collaborative in Merrimac. This is the latest development in a nearly 13-month ordeal that has seen the Pelletier family lose custody of the child to the Massachusetts Department of Children & Families.

Glenn and TheBlaze have been methodically covering the case for a number of months, and other national media sources are beginning to pick up the story as well. The problems began last February when physicians at Boston Children’s Hospital concluded that Justina has somataform disorder, a physiological condition, not mitochondrial disease. Justina’s parents, Lou and Linda, objected to the new diagnosis – citing Justina’s extensive treatment for mitochondrial disease by doctors at Tufts Medical Center. It was this objection that led to the Massachusetts DCF gaining custody of the child.

After hearing about the case through Glenn’s coverage, Mat Staver, the founder and chairman of the Liberty Counsel, has offered the Pelletier’s legal counsel. Mat was not allowed to be in the courtroom on Monday when the judge ruled to put Justina in foster care because he had to motion to be allowed in as an attorney for the family. The judge didn’t immediately grant this motion and is allowing DCF 48 hours to contest it.

After appearing alongside Lou Pelletier on last night’s Glenn Beck Program, Mat joined Glenn on radio this morning and explained that in his 27 years of practicing law, he has “never seen anything like this.”

Mat admitted that he was initially skeptical that something this egregious could be happening in the United States. But, as it turns out, situations like this are nothing new.

“We looked at it. We talked to the parents. We talked to others. We did an investigation. And we realized: Yeah, there is something wrong, but it's not with the parents – it's with the Department of Children and Families, the CCN of Massachusetts, and Boston Children's Hospital,” Mat explained. “This is not the first time this has happened to parents when they have taken their children for treatment at Boston Hospital. DCF all of a sudden is called, and they come in and the children are taken away because now, oh, it's not a physical problem. It's got to be a mental problem. It's all in your head, therefore, it's got to be the parents making these things up… When you dig into this other issue, you realize this is a pattern of DCF and Boston Children's Hospital.”

Mat believes that the state is trying to keep this case “quiet” and “kick the can down the road.” But the increased media attention is making it more and more difficult. One of the most bizarre aspects of the case is that Justina’s family is barely able to interact with the child.

Justina’s sisters and grandparents have not seen her in over a year. And when her mother Linda arrived on Friday for her monitored, hour-long weekly visit, she wasn’t even allowed to bring her cell phone in “to photograph her own daughter’s condition.”

“Matt, I can't thank you enough – you and the people that are coming in are going to be responsible for saving this girl's life. And I think, honestly, waking America up to a horrible situation. It's not just in Massachusetts,” Glenn concluded. “We pray for your health and the health of your organization and that God watches over everything that you do. Thank you, Mat… This thing is going to come undone in a spectacular way.”

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."

Glenn Beck has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just to have everyone look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China … the list goes on, but no consequences are paid. Now, the media have called the election for Joe Biden and insist no one can question it. But for many of the more than 71 million people who voted for President Trump, our search for the truth isn't over yet.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn called out the left's long list of alleged corruption that has gone unchecked and stressed that Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process of investigating the multiple allegations of election fraud to ensure our voting systems are fair.

"I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I am worn out. I am fed up!" Glenn said during his opening monologue. "I've had enough. I am tired of exposing corruption, doing our homework, even going overseas and having documents translated to make sure they're exactly right, [and] presenting the evidence ... except, once we expose it, nothing happens. Nobody goes to jail. Nobody pays for a damn thing any more!"
