Amazing viral video shows cat saving boy from jaws of dog - but Stu isn’t buying it

It is no secret that Glenn is not a fan of cats. In fact, he absolutely hates them. But an amazing viral video featuring a cat literally saving a young boy from the jaws of an attacking dog just might have changed his opinion – ever so slightly – of the furry felines. While Stu found the video impressive, he was unwilling to believe the cat’s heroics were pure. On radio this morning, Stu concocted a conspiracy theory as to who was actually behind the video.

“Did you see the video that was out yesterday? It's insane. It makes me actually like cats a little bit more. Although, I think this is some sort of a ninja cat or a dog in a cat suit. But I've never seen a cat do this before,” Glenn said. “I didn't even click on it because I'm like, ‘I don't like cats. I don't care what this cat is doing.’ And then Pat has it on an endless loop over on his computer, and he's just fascinating by it today. There's a reason to be fascinated by it.”

TheBlaze.com’s article about the video has already been shared some 96,000 times, and the video has gained national attention. In case you haven’t seen the clip, below is the footage courtesy of YouTube:

The boy in the clip is 4-year-old Jeremy Triantafilo of Bakersfield, California. Though he ended up needing a few stiches in his leg, he remains none the worse for the wear. The feline that rushed to his rescue was the Triantafilo family’s cat Tara. In an interview with KERO-TV, Triantafilo described Tara as his “hero.”

While Glenn described the video as “amazing,” Stu took a slightly more cynical approach.

“There's something wrong with this,” Stu said. “You know what I'm thinking? I'm thinking publicity stunt for a cat food. It didn't actually happen. That's my prediction: A publicity stunt for cat food. They're going to come out [and say], ‘If you eat our food your cat will do this sort of stuff.’ Like one of those movie promos that leak out – you think it's real for a few days… I’m just throwing it out there. Luckily, I have absolutely no basis for it whatsoever.”

Ultimately, Glenn believes there is a good chance the video is real because cats are, in fact, smart animals – even if they do remind him of a certain 20th century progressive.

“Cats are not stupid. You know what cats are? Cats are liberal elites. They just think they are better than you,” Glenn concluded. “‘I'm a different species than you. I don't need you. And here's what I'm going to do: I'm going to rub up against your leg, and then you're going to go get me food, and you're going to give me the food I like. You're going to put it right here, and then I'm going to lap it up. I might even sit on your head later. And you're not going to do anything about it.’ It’s like Woodrow Wilson in fur.”

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
