This happened: Government confiscates money from a member of Glenn's staff

Have you checked your bank accounts lately?

According to Australia's Herald Sun, the Australian government seized a record $360 million from ‘dormant’ household bank accounts in 2013 alone. A rule change in 2012, allowed the government to seize the money in some 80,000 accounts that had been dormant for three years. Prior to the change, just $330 million had been collected between 1959 and 2012.

While you might be wondering why you should care about a banking regulation in Australia, it turns out the practice is somewhat common in the United States as well. On radio this morning, Joe Kerry, president of Mercury One, explained the fight his family is currently battling with the state of Pennsylvania over funds liquidated from one of their bank accounts without their knowledge.

As Joe explained, about six months ago his wife noticed that they had stopped receiving bank statements for one of their accounts. He proceeded to go back and look at old statements he had received and, sure enough, there was language that explained the state of Pennsylvania could liquidate the account if there is no activity in a certain period of time.

“She started going through the statements, and on one statement, which was full of language, one sentence in one paragraph of that statement said, ‘If you have no activity on this account, we will close out this account, based on Pennsylvania law blah, blah, blah,’” Joe explained. “What I don't understand is dividends were being paid into this account. We were paying taxes on this money the whole time, yet because there was no activity for a six month period, the state of Pennsylvania took that money, without any notice to us.”

Joe and his wife got in touch with their state senator because they were so baffled by the policy and how either the bank or the state did not have to contact them before withdrawing the money.

“We went to our state senator and said, ‘This can't be right. Our mailing address was accurate. The e-mail address was accurate. The phone number was right. How could this be inactive? Dividends are paid into the account,’” Joe said. “Well, under this new law, any account that you don't log into in a six month period, that money is transferred to the state.”

The state of Pennsylvania confirmed that the money was transferred out the account because it was considered “unclaimed property.” Remarkably, however, the state was unable to tell them how much money was seized.

“The state said, ‘Yes, the money was transferred.’ We said, ‘How much was taken?’ They said, ‘We won’t know for three to six months how much money we took from that account because our records aren't updated for that period of time,’” Joe explained. “We could go back to our own records. But the state didn't know. They take this money… [but] they could not tell us where that money was, how much was taken, and how we would get it back.”

As it turns out, there were several other families in Joe’s own neighborhood who had been affected by the law and not even realized it. Fortunately, as of about two weeks ago, the state of Pennsylvania began cutting check to those who had their accounts liquidated.

“This is such a dangerous thing. My grandparents lived through the Great Depression. My grandparents had two rules: I don't keep all our money in the bank because I don't trust the bank. Second rule: I don't go to the hospital because hospitals are where you go to die. I never understood that, until recently,” Glenn concluded. “My grandparents didn't trust the banks. They didn't trust the doctors. We are headed right back to that period.”

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."
