‘Are we dead inside’: Pregnant Sudanese woman sentenced to death for Christian beliefs

On radio this morning, Glenn read a disturbing report involving Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, the Sudanese woman who was recently sentenced to death by hanging for refusing to renounce her Christian faith. According to her lawyers, Ibrahim, who is married to an American citizen, gave birth to a baby girl in a filthy prison cell in Khartoum, Sudan on Monday. After sharing the story Glenn had a simple question for his listeners: Are we dead inside?

Earlier this month, TheBlaze reported that Ibrahim and her 20-month old son were detained in a Sudanese prison after the 27-year-old refused to renounce her Christian faith.

Ibrahim became a Christian after her father, a Muslim, abandoned her family. After being raised by her Ethiopian mother, who is a Christian, Ibrahim adopted her mother’s faith. Ibrahim later married a Christian man named Daniel Wani. Wani is a U.S. citizen.

Shariah law in Sudan requires that children follow their father’s faith. Ibrahim was first arrested and charged with adultery in August 2013 and was later charged with apostasy in February 2014 after she said she was a Christian and not a Muslim.

The Daily Mail has spoken to Ibrahim’s husband, and he said he had been in contact with the American Embassy in Khartoum, but they refused to assist him.

“I thought this would be the one place which would help me, but they told me they didn’t have time to do anything. I was upset because now that I am American citizen I thought they would help me,” Wani told the Daily Mail. “I was threatened. They said ‘well your wife isn’t American, so we can’t help.’ I felt disgusted. My home is in America and still they won’t help. It’s getting uglier and it’s not going in the right direction.”

Furthermore, the Daily Mail lays out how these charges against Ibrahim came to be:

[Ibrahim’s] lawyer, Mohaned Mustafa Elnour, a Muslim, has received death threats for defending her but has already lodged an appeal. If he does not succeed at the Appeal Court, he will take the case to Sudan’s Supreme Court.

Mr Elnour said the case hinges around the testimony of two men who claim to be her brothers, and one woman who claims to be her mother.

In court they claimed that she had disappeared from the family home in a small village in the east of Sudan and then discovered her living in Khartoum, married to a Christian man.

But the lawyer said all three witnesses have proven to be liars because their evidence to the court has been highly contradictory.

He suggested that the trio are making up their story in an attempt to claim ownership of Meriam’s flourishing general store in a shopping mall on the outskirts of Khartoum.

Mr Elnour added: 'We can prove that Meriam’s mother died in 2012 and that the two others are definite fraudsters. But the court is not interested in our evidence.’

“Will we in America do anything? Are we so dead inside,” Glenn asked exasperatedly. “I mean I got on CNN and I said, ‘I will stand with the people who are trying to stop the hetero-fascists in Russia that say death to all homosexuals.’ I will stand with people I really, really don't like… much to their chagrin because we don't do this to people. We don't stone homosexuals. We don't kill people because of their beliefs. We don't do it.”

“If we don't stand for this, what do we stand for? ‘Well, we can't get involved in other people's country.’ Okay, that's fine. This is an American citizen,” he continued. “The father is going to lose the children because the father is Christian and the children cannot be raised by a Christian. I understand this is the Sudan, but these are Americans… We must stand for something.”

While everyone knows that this type of persecution is indefensible, Glenn feared man’s love for his fellow man has waxed cold.

“What is wrong with us? We just had a caller last hour. He said, ‘Our backs have been thrown up against the wall.’ You're damn right it has. Everybody's back is being thrown up against the wall – unless you are part of the elite power group,” Glenn concluded. “[But] you can only complain so long… Americans don't give up on things. Americans also don't strike out in anger and hatred… This is the truth. We are not here to slaughter you. We are here to have you realign yourself with truth.”

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."
