#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.”

Listen to the entire interview below:

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!"

While the mainstream media has called the election for Joe Biden, Glenn gives a rallying cry to conservatives. Many of the over 71 million people who voted for President Trump are split between frustration and an urge to do something. The multiple allegations of election fraud are largely out of our hands, and Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process to ensure our voting systems are fair.

But that doesn't mean we have to sit on our hands. There is an urgent need to focus on the ongoing Senate races. Glenn has warned us of the Left's radical plans should they sweep this election, and the wolves are already descending on Georgia.

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn reveals the desperate measures they're taking to win two Georgia runoff races in January and claim the Senate. Senator Mike Lee joins to warn what will happen to the country if Chuck Schumer becomes Senate majority leader and why we must have a transparent process so that Americans can trust the final count.

Later, Glenn reveals a new project for Americans who are not ready to roll over and let the Marxists win the battle for our country.
