Inspirational college basketball player Lauren Hill passed away

Back in November, Glenn had an exceptionally talented and inspirational young woman, Lauren Hill on The Glenn Beck Program. Hill was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor while she was a high school student. Instead of giving up on life Lauren fought and enjoyed every second given to her, continuing to play basketball for as long as she could. In honor of her we are sharing her story from her interview with Glenn.

Original Story:

By now, you've probably heard of Lauren Hill. In November, The Mount St. Joseph freshman was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, but she hasn't let the diagnosis stopped her from living her dreams. Lauren made headlines this week after she fulfilled one of her lifelong goals by playing her first college basketball game. She joined Glenn Thursday night to share her story, one filled with optimism and hope despite the incredible challenges before her.

During her senior year, Lauren experienced several odd symptoms that led to her going to get checked out at a doctor.

"And I had asked to go to each doctor, like the eye doctor and the ear doctor, and then finally we ended up just going to the doctor doctor, because I wasn’t playing as normal as I was playing. My senior year, my playing was sloppy, and I was out of shape. As the weeks went by, I didn’t get in shape, and that was just an odd thing. So we had to go get that checked out, and I expected it to be a concussion or something, but it was a tumor," she explained.

"I remember being shocked, but my parents were really sick to their stomachs. I remember I just started spewing out questions right away, like how are you guys going to help, and what are we going to do to stop this tumor, and how are we going to slow it down? When they, you know, say that it’s inoperable and there’s nothing they can do about it, it really hits you, and it hits home. It’s kind of like just standing there and have the rug pulled out from underneath your feet and slamming against the ground and being left breathless."

When faced with this kind of devastating news, some may choose to wallow in despair. Others, like Brittany Maynard, have chosen to end their own lives at a time of their choosing before the degenerative effects of the disease ruin their bodies. But Lauren has embraced a different path.

"There was a January night where I wasn’t feeling, I was not very happy, and I was kind of feeling really negative and just not positive at all, and I was wondering why this was happening. You know, because we always question when we get diagnosed with cancer, a terminal diagnosis, why me, why my sister or whoever?"

"I remember when I was asking why, I just decided that it doesn’t matter why it happened, and I guess I just accepted it as my journey, and I told God that I would speak for the little kids that couldn’t speak, because not a lot of people know about DIPG. And the kids that are diagnosed with DIPG, they tend to lose their voices and can’t express their symptoms like I can, and so I decided that I’m not fighting for myself. I’m going to start fighting for others, and that’s what makes it kind of easier to keep moving on is to fight for others and not for myself."

"I feel like my life is meant to make an impact, like maybe that’s why I was sent here. That was my job that God gave me was to be a voice and make an impact and hopefully raise research money for DIPG and get cancer solved because just all cancer needs to go away."

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
