#FreeJustina: Attorney offers new updates in the case of Justina Pelletier

There are new updates in the case of Justina Pelletier – the Connecticut teen who has been in the custody of the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families for over a year. On Monday, a juvenile court judge made no ruling in the case, instead saying he would make a decision by Friday. On radio this morning, Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel joined Glenn to discuss the latest “kicking of the can” in the case and what the American people can do to help.

“Mat Staver is with us… We wanted to get an update on the Justina Pelletier case,” Glenn said. “Justina had to go to the emergency room over the weekend and the parents weren't notified. The judge was supposed to, we thought, return Justina at least to Tufts medical facilities on Monday. But then he said, ‘I'm waiting until Friday to make any decision’… Mat is here to just give us a quick update.”

Last weekend, Justina was admitted to the emergency room for reasons still unknown to her parents, and Justina will not be allowed to discuss what happened even during their supervised visiting time. Why? DCF has stipulated they cannot talk about any medical conditions, diagnostic studies, et cetera in the presence of Justina. Furthermore, last time Glenn spoke to Mat, it seemed as though progress was being made in the case and Justina may actually return to her original doctors’ care, but that has still not happened.

“I thought was going in the direction of her being returned to parents,” Glenn said. “What happened?”

“Well, that's the direction we're moving towards but what happened here is DCF is really trying to dig its heels in. We do have – as of two weeks ago – a signed order by the court to transfer her care back to Tufts,” Mat explained. “Now… we're working directly with Tufts. We have been told by the medical director and Dr. Korson, the medical specialist who treated [Justina] for some time before this happened, that they are ready, willing, and eager to have her returned. Even this morning, we're working directly with Tufts because DCF continues to drag its heels and is not working with Tufts. So we're going directly to Tufts.”

While the behavior of the Massachusetts DCF might sound worthy of contempt charges, the judge in this case has continually kicked the can down the road.

“We have now uncovered in the record where the judge, last summer, said, ‘I'm inclined to send Justina back home,’” Mat said. “And he said to DCF, ‘You need to make arrangements this to this.’ And DCF didn't do this. And DCF came back into court and said, ‘You can't make to us do this. You can't force us to do it.’ So the judge just kicked the can down the road with no ruling. So here we are, 14 months later.”

Liberty Counsel just recently became involved in this case after hearing Glenn talk about it on his radio and television programs. In the short time they have been on the case, Mat believes progress has been made. But he encouraged anyone listening to continue to speak up and spread the word about this atrocity.

“We’re moving this thing in the right direction… [But people need] to make their voice known to DCF and the governor of the state [of Massachusetts]. They need to have an independent investigation. They need to free Justina,” Mat explained. “If they're tweeting, they can tweet hashtag #FreeJustina. They can also go to the FreeJustina.com website for more information. They can go to our website, LC.org. We're going to continue to get up information for people to be able to reach out and make their voice known because this is outrageous, and it has to come to an end. Justina's life literally is in the balance.”

Glenn has taken the step to sign the petition on FreeJustina.com, and he encouraged all those listening to do the same. Ultimately, this case is one of many happening around the U.S. and it is time to send a message that this type of action will not be tolerated.

“I signed the petition. I want you to do the same… This little girl's life is at stake, and this is so much more than just one girl. This is happening all around the country,” Glenn concluded. “You are not messing with the United States of America as you once knew it. You are messing with a growing – I’m going to say it – a growing fascistic government. And it doesn't matter if this guy is the president or the next guy is the president. This is not about the president. This is about the system that is being created by both parties, and it is extraordinarily dangerous.”

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.

Disney actress Gina Carano was just the latest to be canceled for being vocally conservative — this time for making a Holocaust comparison. But on this week's episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," renowned Jewish historian Edwin Black explains how Gina's comparison wasn't exactly out of line: The second phase of the Holocaust, exclusion, "is like cancel culture."

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril. He told Glenn he believes our culture and our history are being erased. Our ideals are being censored and our values are being mocked.
