'Extremely disturbing': Congress calls for investigation of Phoenix VA after 40 vets die

On Wednesday, CNN released a shocking report that at least 40 veterans died while waiting for treatment from the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Health Care system. The CNN report suggests the Phoenix VA used a “secret list” to stage a cover-up of the long wait times that ultimately led to a loss of life. Congress has now called for an investigation into the “extremely disturbing allegations.” On radio this morning, Glenn discussed the latest example of how we have failed to provide the necessary care and support for our veterans.

“If you remember right, when we first went national [on radio], it was on the buildup to the Iraq War. And I did something called a 'Rally for America,'” Glenn said. “It was, ‘Listen: If we're going to do this, we have to promise each other right now we're going to fight it with everything we have. And then when we come home we're not going to spit on them. We're going to take care of them. I refuse to be the 1960s generation.’ Well, guys, we are becoming the 60s generation.”

According to the CNN report, the ‘secret list’ is an “elaborate scheme” to hide from the federal government the fact that nearly 1,600 ailing veterans have been forced to wait for months on end for medical attention.

“The scheme was deliberately put in place to avoid the VA’s own internal rules,” Sam Foote, a retired doctor who spent 24 years working for the Phoenix VA hospital, told CNN, adding that the list is the invention of hospital management. “They developed the secret waiting list.”

There are two lists that the Phoenix VA uses for patient appointments, the retired doctor said. There’s an “official list,” which shows that veterans are being provided timely and effective medical care. And there’s the “secret” list, which accurately reflects the fact that veterans are being forced to wait months for care.

Glenn and Pat agreed this is America’s first look at the death panel system that many warned of before the passage of Obamacare in 2010.

“This is government-run health care,” Pat said of the VA. “So this is the way your death panel works. ‘This is going to hurt our stats as a hospital. So let's put these guys on a separate list so it doesn't hurt our staff.’ And that's what they're alleging is that there's some kind of secret list.”

Glenn explained that now more than ever it is essential we find ways to provide care and support for our veterans. Glenn has spoken openly about the treatment his is receiving at the Carrick Brain Center in Dallas, and the work that private organization is doing to help as many people as possible.

“We have to dedicate ourselves to help these guys because nobody else is doing it… Read the story on TheBlaze about the veteran that just can't get an appointment… It's the Canadian healthcare system, except this one is intentional,” Glenn concluded. “How much money are we giving away to the rest of the world? How much money have we sent over to the Middle East… It's insane.”

New York mom ARRESTED after son shows school nurse his new tattoo

The mother of a 10-year-old boy was arrested in Highland, New York, for allowing her son to get a permanent tattoo on his forearm.

Crystal Thomas was charged with endangering the welfare of a child after a school nurse discovered her son's new tattoo, his name in large block letters, and reported it to school officials. Thomas faces up to one year in prison if convicted, and her two children were both taken away by child protective services. The tattoo artist was also arrested.

In New York, it is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to get a tattoo, even with parental consent.

In New York, state officials have introduced a bill that would ensure that parents who allow their young children to receive so-called "gender-affirming care" — which may include puberty blockers, hormone therapy, and surgeries — are protected under the law, as well as the physicians who provide such "care."

"Can [you] hear the cognitive dissonance in this story?" asked Glenn Beck on the radio program. "You have got to be kidding me."

Chloe Cole says she began to be "brainwashed" by the gender ideology she saw all over social media when she was only 11 years old. By the time she turned 13, Chloe was convinced that she was a boy, and her parents didn't know how to respond. So they turned to the so-called "experts," who rushed Chloe into life-altering hormone treatments and surgeries. Not only did these experts give "no alternatives" to transitioning, but they lied to Chloe's parents behind her back to scare them into compliance.

Chloe joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to share her heartbreaking experience and to expose the dark world of “gender-affirming care,” which she believes no teen should ever be subject to — from hormone blockers to mastectomies: "This is all wrong. I regret every single step, and this shouldn't have happened."

She also had a warning for parents about what led her to make those decisions in the first place, and she provided some key advice on how to react compassionately to situations like hers.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."
