‘It's a biblical thing to do’: David Barton offers a Biblical perspective on the border crisis debate

Earlier this year, David Barton endorsed Georgia State Senator Barry Loudermilk (R) in the race for Georgia’s 11th Congressional District. Loudermilk faces primary opposition from former Congressman Bob Barr, and during a debate earlier this week, Barr bizarrely attacked Loudermilk for accepting Barton’s endorsement.

Watch Barr’s remarks below:

Barr claims Barton has “has been roundly and uniformly criticized with facts for taking positions that are anti-Semitic [and] that are against women voting." Loudermilk, however, did not cave to the pressure and denounce Barton.

After Glenn offered a strong defense of his friend to open the radio program, Barton called in later in the show to discuss the criticism and the situation at the border.

Considering Glenn has personally traveled to Israel with Barton to several occasions and has seen the work he has done for the Jewish people first hand, the accusations are utter hogwash. While Glenn referred to Barr’s statement as “one of the most incredible things” he’s ever heard, Barton said he has been dealing with the same criticism for many years.

“You know, that is something that has been kept really active… by a bunch of Soros funded bloggers and groups,” Barton said. “And it's really disturbing that Bob Barr, who is portraying himself as conservative, is pulling this information down from Soros groups.”

Glenn then asked Barton to discuss the situation at the border and the differences between the legal issues the government must deal with and the humanitarian needs Glenn believes should be handled privately.

Barton said he “stands firmly,” with Glenn’s assessment of the crisis, and he offered further insight into what the Bible says about compassion and caring for the poor. Of the 205 versus pertaining to the topic, just one mentions the role of government. 204 speak to the responsibility and role of the churches and Synagogues.

“You mentioned this is a Christian thing to do. It's a biblical thing to do. There are 205 verses in the Bible that tell us to take care of the poor, to take care of needy, take care of those who have problems,” Barton said. “Out of 205 verses, the only thing that government is told to do is that when the poor come into court, make sure they get justice. Everything regarding their physical needs comes back to family and to the church or to the Synagogue.”

When you employ the idea of a hard head and warm heart, the political tension in this scenario begins to ease. As Barton explained, if he were to come across an individual lying in the middle of the road, he is not going to waste time asking how they got there – he is going to help.

“If I see someone lying in the middle of the road, I'm not going do ask how they got there or whether I'm facilitating them being there again,” he said. “ I'm going to meet their need. That's the simple bottom line to it.”

That is not to say, however, the law does not come into play.

“Ecclesiastes 7:11 says when a law is not enforced it encourages other lawbreakers,” he continued. “That's our problem not only with immigration law… That's our problem with the whole bunch of laws that we're not enforcing. And it's causing the same kinds of problems. So that's a politically area that has to be dealt with in the political realm.”

Ultimately, Barton believes it is quite dangerous for people to harden their hearts because of a political opinion.

“If you don't have that heart and compassion – if you harden your heart to needs because you think that's politically incorrect for your viewpoint,” Barton concluded, “then that is just not a good deal.”

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."
