NYC Mayor involved in bizarre groundhog cover-up

The cover up is always worse than the crime. When Mayor Bill de Blasio posed for a standard photo-op on Groundhog Day, he embarrassingly dropped the animal. Everything seemed fine, but it wasn’t because the poor groundhog died a week later from injuries sustained after the fall. In one of the dumbest decisions of all time, the zoo (which gets half their funding from the city) decided to cover up the death. Pathetic.

Watch the original incident unfold below:

"This just in from New York. Apparently, Bill de Blasio, on February 2nd, dropped the Staten Island Zoo groundhog. It wasn't Chuck, the groundhog. It was actually Charlotte, a female impostor," Glenn explained.

"Scandal number one. Why is the Staten Island zoo giving you a bogus groundhog, naming it Chuck instead of Charlotte? Well, apparently, Chuck bit the mayor at one point, and so they wanted to not use Chuck. Because once you have a taste of the mayor's blood, apparently you just...anyway, so they went for Charlotte, the girlfriend of Chuck, and presented him as Chuck."

"Well, de Blasio is then wearing these giant gloves. Nobody else is wearing these gloves, but de Blasio is. Because he's wearing the gloves and the woodchuck is kind of upset, he drops Charlotte."

"Here's where it goes bad. A couple of days later Charlotte was found inside of her enclosure, not a cage, her enclosure, at the Staten Island zoo. She had died from internal injuries. The zoo covered it up, and had said the groundhog had died of natural causes. The assemblyman said, 'I was told she had died of old age and went to the big farm in the sky.'"

According to The New York Post, The Staten Island Zoo gets $3.5 million in funding from the city, and the zoo told the staff to keep quiet about the cause of death for poor Charlotte.

"What happened was they were covering up because they wanted the money from the city. They covered up that she had died from internal injuries by being dropped by the mayor," he continued.

Shocking.

If there is one silver lining from this tragedy, it could be that Bill O'Reilly can use it as inspiration for a future installment of his Killing [INSERT FAMOUS HISTORICAL FIGURE] series of books.

Watch Glenn discuss the news in the hilarious segment below:

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
