Not a Cincinnati Bengals fan? You will be after reading this

When Devon Still didn’t make the Bengals 53 man roster, he wasn’t as devastated as one might expect. His 4 year old daughter had just been diagnosed with cancer, so his first reaction was relief because he’d be able to spend more time with her. What the Bengals did next and what has happened since is nothing short of awesome. Devon joined Glenn on radio today to tell his story and give an update on his daugther.

Listen to the interview at 38minutes below:

GLENN: Welcome to the program, Devon Still. He is a defensive lineman for the Cincinnati Bengals. If you don't know the story, which isn't a sports story, it's just a story of human beings being good to one another.

In June, Devon learned his 4-year-old daughter has Stage 4 cancer. Given a 50 percent survival rate. At the same time, he is being cut from the roster of the Bengals. I'm going to let him tell the rest of the story. Devon, how are you, sir?

STILL: I'm doing good. And yourself?

GLENN: I'm doing very good. First of all, tell me how your daughter is doing.

STILL: She's doing good. She's actually bounced back from the surgery pretty well. She's up moving around, talking and eating, so she's been a trooper through this whole process.

GLENN: And when will you know how effective this surgery was?

STILL: Well, we know for a fact it was already effective because they was able to get out all of the tumor and lymph nodes in her adrenal gland where the tumor first started. Now, we just wait and see how long it takes her body to completely bounce back from the surgery, and she's going to have another round of chemo and radiation to take out the cancer cells that is in her bone, her bone marrow.

GLENN: How are her adrenal glands, are they still intact?

STILL: She only has one. They took out the other one.

GLENN: You find this out, as devastating as this is, you also find out that you're being cut from the roster. Tell me what's going through your mind when this is all happening.

STILL: Well, I had a discussion about being cut -- obviously wasn't something I wanted to happen, but also it wasn't the hardest conversation I had. Whereas before, me being sat down and told I would no longer play football, it would have been hard for me because I love football a lot.

But being as I just had the worst sit-down conversation that I probably ever will on June 2nd, when I found out my daughter had cancer, it didn't hit me as hard because my daughter was still on my mind. And when I was actually told that, I thought I was going to be able to have more time to go back and be with my daughter. But I was given an opportunity to be on the practice squad by the Bengals, so I still have insurance to afford my daughter's cancer treatments.

PAT:So, Devon, they brought you back, was it specifically -- you know, obviously partly for skill, but it was partly just so you could have insurance for your daughter so you could take care of her?

STILL: No, that's the main thing that I considered it to be. I believe it was for skill. To give me time to bounce back from my injuries that I had the previous season and to also get over that hump of me still being in disbelief of my daughter having cancer and being away from her. But I took it as an opportunity for me and my daughter to still have insurance to pay for her cancer treatment because that's what's most important to me.

GLENN: So now the Bengals went a step further and made a deal with your jersey. You want to tell me how this came about?

STILL: Actually it was something they did on their own. I didn't know nothing about. I actually went on Twitter and saw that they had begun to sell my jerseys and was going to donate 100 percent of the proceeds to Children's of Pediatric Cancer, which wasn't a surprise move from the Bengals by me because since day one when I told them about my daughter, they stood behind me and tried to help out any way possible.

PAT: Pretty amazing. Also, you have since gone from the practice team to the regular 53-man roster, and have actually been playing the last few weeks and doing really well?

STILL: Yeah. I mean, just the outpouring I have had from everybody -- family members, my fiancé -- it allows me to focus on football a lot more than I was able to in the beginning because I was still trying to cope with what was going on with my daughter. If you think about it, I'm only 25 years old. I'm still a young man. I'm still trying to be the best father I can be. Trying to juggle that and my daughter being ill --

GLENN: I have to tell you, there's a lot of people that are much older that don't handle it like you're handling it. I mean, we're in a society now that just is not -- we're not holding up great fathers. And you really seem to really be a good dad and trying to be a good dad.

STILL: Right. I mean, it's hard for me not to be because every time I see that smile on my daughter's face, it makes me want to be the best man possible and best father possible to her. So hopefully we can change the trend, change the image of fathers in America and move forward.

GLENN: How has this changed you?

STILL: It changed me a lot. It changed my whole perspective on life. It showed me what's most important, and that's just to cherish the time that you have with your loved ones.

And I don't complain about stuff as much as I did before. I have a lot of football injuries that I thought was just the worse thing in the world. When I see my daughter fighting for her life and she's able to stay with a smile on her face, that lets me know to know that what I'm going to do is nothing compared to what she's going through.

GLENN: When you see that 10,000 people bought your jersey and really it's out of support for you and your daughter, and then who was it the New Orleans Saints that came in and bought 100 jerseys themselves, and you see what the Bengals have done, what does that tell you about people?

STILL: Well, it's changed my perspective on people and this world because I don't know about y'all, but when I look at TV and I look at the news, all you hear is about bad things, about the bad things people are doing, so that was my thought about people in this world. But seeing people step up to the plate and stick up for people who are fighting pediatric cancer by donating money and also buying my jersey so that the proceeds go to cancer research, it really shows me how much amazing people there is in this world.

GLENN: By the way, if you'd like to continue that demonstration of being amazing, you can go to proshop.Bengals.com, and the Devon Still jersey, all the proceeds still go to pediatric cancer research.

PAT: So, Devon, where do you go from here? What does the future look like for you and your daughter from now on?

STILL: Hopefully bright. It definitely is going down a positive direction right now. Hopefully my daughter is able to bounce 100 percent back from surgery and then she goes in to have chemo and radiation to take out the rest of the cancer cells there in her bones. Then she has the stem cell transplant to give her back her good stem cells that were frozen when the process started to build back the bone marrow.

PAT: I've never been a Cincinnati Bengals fan, but this has really made me one.

GLENN: Honestly, with all the things -- and with all the things that are happening in the NFL and, I mean, last night, who was the guy -- the Kansas City Chiefs, that was given unsportsmanlike conduct for going down in the end zone and kneeling down and praying and thanking God? He was given unsportsmanlike conduct. How is that unsportsmanlike?

STILL: I don't know. They came up with a rule that we can't go to the ground for celebration. But I thought they would make an exception.

STU: Yeah, the NFL did come out and say that that was the incorrect call. The penalty was incorrect.

GLENN: Well, that's good. I'm glad to hear that. Devon, thank you so much. And we wish you and your daughter all the best. And know that there are millions around the country that are praying for her and praying for people that are just like you in your situation, and I'm so glad to hear you're coming around, kind of where we're coming around. You see a lot of crap on TV and you star to lose faith, and then a story like this makes you think, that's just not the way it is.

God bless you, man. Thank you.

STILL: All right. Thanks, man.

Glenn Beck: One TERRIFYING thing is clear no matter who caused the Nord Stream pipeline leaks

Evidence strongly suggests that the Nord Stream pipeline leaks were the result of sabotage, and U.S. and European officials have been working to discover who could be behind the explosions that damaged the natural gas pipelines running from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea.

Was it Russia? Ukraine? Germany? But no matter who carried this out, it has put the entire world in grave danger, because if this is indeed an attack, it means that non-military key infrastructure outside Ukraine is now on the "target menu," warned Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It is so important for you to understand, this is now a non-military key infrastructure that has been destroyed," Glenn explained. "If Russia thinks we did it, they've already said, 'Nukes are now on the table.' That gives us a green light to use nukes," he added.

"This is non-military key infrastructure outside of the borders of Ukraine. To date, as far as we know, combat targets were either in Ukraine, or were military targets hit inside of Russia by Ukrainian Air Force or special forces. But the target menu now includes key civilian infrastructure: electricity, water utilities, energy production. That makes Russia more dangerous than ever. And that would be true no matter who carried out the attack," Glenn stated.

Now, the Russians are saying the Unted States did it, and the U.S. is saying it was Russia. But no matter who carried out the attack, "We are facing a Cuban Missile Crisis," said Glenn.

"This could end up being the biggest story of our lifetime and ... if it isn't played calmly by every side, this could be World War III," he continued. "Russia has already said that this gives them the right to use nuclear weapons as soon as they find out for sure who did it. That would be catastrophic, absolutely catastrophic."

The White House can try to spin inflation all day long (and it's trying very hard). But you feel the effects of President Joe Biden’s disastrous leadership every time you go to the grocery store or fill up your car. The American economy is on the brink of disaster after less than two years of a Democrat-controlled Congress and White House. And they’ve got plenty more destruction in the works.

The bottom line is they WANT you to get used to a lower living standard. So, what do you do? How do you prepare? What will food and fuel cost in the months ahead? What would the next Great Depression look like? How are you going to feel the effects of ESG and the Left’s war on oil?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck brings in a panel of economic experts to answer those questions. He’s joined by Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” and Jim Iuorio, a small business owner, stockbroker, and managing director of TJM Institutional Services. While both forecast the worst-case scenario for average Americans, they also offer a glimmer of hope to get us out of this mess.

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"So, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.
