Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick confronted about Justina Pelletier case

For over a year, Lou and Linda Pelletier have been fighting the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families to regain custody of their teenage daughter Justina. DCF took custody of Justina after her parents disputed the diagnosis doctors at Boston Children’s Hospital’s handed down. Boston Children’s Hospital said the then 15-year-old had a psychiatric disorder – not mitochondrial disease, which her parents had been treating her for at the direction of another doctor.

Glenn has been covering this story since the fall, and other media outlets have gotten involved as well. All the while, concerned individuals around the country have called on politicians like Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick to get involved. On Thursday, Reverend Patrick Mahoney, the spokesman representing the Pelletier family, confronted Gov. Patrick outside an event in Lowell, Massachusetts.

Watch the exchange between Rev. Mahoney and Gov. Patrick below:

On radio this morning, Glenn reacted to the encounter – praising Gov. Patrick for allowing Rev. Mahoney to speak his mind but also questioning the politician’s sincerity.

“I have more respect for Deval Patrick on this particular thing. I didn't think I would like Deval Patrick ever,” Glenn said. “But listen to the way he's letting this guy speak. I think that's encouraging.”

With that in in mind, however, Glenn did question the political expediency of Gov. Patrick’s decision to let Rev. Mahoney speak. With cameras all around, Gov. Patrick comes across as respectful and rightly concerned, but will there be any further action steps taken to actually end this nightmare and bring Justina home?

“Is there a follow-up? It's one thing when you have cameras around and a powerful pastor saying this and he's being reasonable, you might want to stop and just listen to him. And then just try to say, you know, ‘My hands are tied,’” Glenn explained. “When you really believe this – forget about executive order or anything else – you lead the charge… This is what Mahoney is talking about. ‘I respect what you did for civil rights cases… So where are you now?’”

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
