Glenn's test results 'better than expected' following 'miraculous' visit to Mayo Clinic

I could not let another day go by without thanking you for prayers and a loving Father in Heaven for answering them.

As you know, I took off a month over the summer. Thank God, I feel good and my voice is strong. With an abundance of caution though, I decided to go to some of the best in the field to just look at all of me.

For too long I have had symptoms, they come and go, but they are never gone. I thought last year things were gone for good but no such luck.

Thankfully, with your prayers, all turned out as good as hoped and better than expected.

I spent a long few days at the Mayo Clinic.

This place is a miracle and it was incredible to watch them work.

Brilliant people and so very kind - from the doctors, nurses, administrative to the security staff. All beyond professional staking out the territory of truly kind caregivers and scientists.

Each doctor on the team, I believe there were 8 doctors involved, knew my case, did their homework and came prepared to help and heal.

I have never seen anything like it.

I asked the one of the nurses, "I am being treated like a king, but what is it like for the average person?" I am not sure she understood the question but her reply was simple: "just like you."

I was so happy to hear that.

I was told, but did not verify, that they can process 5,000 patients a day.

At the end of my stay, I speculated to the head of the medical team assigned to me that if I had taken this on my own and just gone from doctor to doctor like usual, it would have taken me about a year to complete this work and all of these tests. He felt it may have taken a bit longer. Wow. What a blessing.

The insurance company is raising the rates again on my company's "Cadillac insurance" and the government thinks it too good so they are fining (taxing) the company (me) for providing this health care for my employees, but thank God I do.

Yes, I can afford this on my own but my employees couldn't and I believe they deserve the same care, treatment and opportunity as my family does. It is a core principle for me. None of us are worth less in God's eyes. I believe that insurance is the last thing we cut. I was the one who needed it this time.

I would hope that companies understand the value of providing this kind of health care and employees understand the strain it puts on the employer but it is worth it when you need it. My only hope is that we can get the government out of this before they destroy truly remarkable medicine and the general public's access to it.

I wanted to thank all of the doctors and nurses that helped us through this last week.

I grew up hearing about the Mayo Clinic. They have quite a reputation to live up to, they need to know that they surpassed everything we even thought a hospital and great health care could be.

If you or a loved one need answers this IS the place to go.

They found new, well-founded and dynamic answers for me.

Not a surprise that presidents, prime ministers and kings from around the world come to them for help.

The doctors were gifted, kind, steady and empathetic. They were beyond thorough. We all got on the plane late Friday night with a truly grateful heart.

As an aside, they say my vocal chords look better than they did a few months ago after my break. What is more important, they believe they now know what is causing that and everything else that is going on. Finally a universal answer that is provable on scans. The doctor that found it, "had a hunch". An answered prayer.

We have started new treatment and are praying for miraculous and lasting results over the next few months.

I need to thank you and all that prayed last week without even knowing why.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you. We could feel them and they were answered. And thank you to Mary and all of the wonderful people at the Mayo Clinic for making an exhausting week one to be written about in our family journals as a very positive experience.

From Dallas, Goodnight America.

I could not let another day go by without thanking you for prayers and a loving Father in heaven for answering them.As...

Several months ago, at the Miss Universe competition, two women took a selfie, then posted it on Instagram. The caption read, "Peace and love." As a result of that selfie, both women faced death threats, and one of the women, along with her entire family, had to flee her home country. The occasion was the 2017 Miss Universe competition, and the women were Miss Iraq and Miss Israel. Miss Iraq is no longer welcome in her own country. The government threatened to strip her of her crown. Of course, she was also badgered for wearing a bikini during the competition.

In an interview, Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan, said:

When I posted the picture I didn't think for a second there would be blowback. I woke up to calls from my family and the Miss Iraq Organization going insane. The death threats I got online were so scary. The director of the Miss Iraq Organization called me and said they're getting heat from the ministry. He said I have to take the picture down or they will strip me of my title.

Yesterday, Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan, posted another selfie with Miss Israel, during a visit to Jerusalem.

In an interview, she said that:

I don't think Iraq and Israel are enemies; I think maybe the governments are enemies with each other. There's a lot of Iraqi people that don't have a problem with Israelis.

This is, of course, quite an understatement: Iraq, home to roughly 15,000 Palestinians, refuses to acknowledge Israel as a legitimate country, as it is technically at war with Israel. The adages says that a picture is worth a thousand words. What are we to do when many of those words are hateful or deadly? And how can we find the goodness in such bad situations?

No political bias. That's the catchphrase you're likely to see blasted all over the news today. The Office of the Inspector General found no evidence that political bias played any role, either with former director Comey or other FBI agents, during the Hillary Clinton email investigation. So is it "all good now"... "carry on"... "nothing to see here"? Hardly. Here are a few of the highlights from the 568 page report.

The report makes it clear that there's no evidence that political bias influenced this investigation, but why did they take five hundred and sixty eight pages to make that point? Well, after reading it, I kind of think they want us to understand how difficult it is to prove political bias. I think the Inspector General wants us to read this report in its entirety, and read between the lines. Here are a few of the highlights.

RELATED: Day of reckoning? Inspector General's report is here.

First and foremost, this report straight eviscerated James Comey. You know one of the most controversial decisions of President Trump's tenure - so far - has been his decision to fire the former FBI director. Let's imagine for a second that Trump never did that and Comey was sitting at his desk at the Hoover Building yesterday. I can almost guarantee you that after the release of this report yesterday, Comey would have been fired by this morning anyway. Here are just a few quotes describing his behavior:

"Extraordinary and insubordinate"... not "reasonable"... "engaged in ad hoc decision making"... "serious error in judgement"

So the Hillary train keeps on rolling. She'll escape a courtroom for the fourteen thousandth time.

It goes on and on. This report just destroys Comey's behavior. There's no way he could have remained FBI Director.

The report goes on to analyze the behavior of several FBI agents that were involved in the Clinton investigation. Strzok and Page were but two of five employees that showed questionable behavior, either through text messages or instant messaging. If you read the texts and transcripts, they're pretty damning. In Strzok's case, his bias could have caused a delay in analyzing the contents of Anthony Weiner's laptop. I say again, it could have, but as the OIG alludes… political bias is hard to prove. Another agent that had been caught saying questionable things on an instant messaging service, was actually one of the agents that conducted Hillary Clinton's interview. In that interview, the OIG seems to acknowledge that the FBI had caught Hillary in a lie, and still they let her go. But… political bias is hard to prove.

See the theme here?

So the Hillary train keeps on rolling. She'll escape a courtroom for the fourteen thousandth time. But, as is the common theme for the entire Clinton family, it is those around them that suffer the most. The FBI has been tarnished. People have lost their jobs. Agents have been humiliated. All this for an arrogant and corrupt politician.

Attention earthlings: a "climate emergency" exists. It's official now, because the Berkeley City Council declared it. So, it must be true.

Frankly, you must be living under a rock if you didn't already know that a state of climate emergency exists. And if you don't do something about it, like now, you could be living under a rock very soon. Because according to the foremost authority on climate doom — the Berkeley City Council — this emergency is as dire as World War II.

RELATED: Americans Aren't Having Kids – and Some Say Climate Change Is a Big Reason Why

Council Member Cheryl Davila warns that global warming is driving us toward, "…the sixth mass extinction of species, which could devastate much of life on earth for the next 10 million years."

The city council resolution says:

During World War II, the Bay Area came together across race, age, class, gender and other differences in an extraordinary regional mobilization, building and repairing Liberty ships, converting car assembly plants into tank manufacturing facilities…

The Berkeley City Council says the only way to avert World War II-level disaster is if Americans mobilize in the same way now to confront climate change as we did in 1942 to confront Nazism. Because climate change and Nazism are definitely the same.

It gets worse. The resolution calls our current climate emergency "the greatest crisis in history."

Seriously, their resolution sounds straight out of the Galactic Empire handbook — "mobilizing workers" to build and install "renewable energy infrastructure."

Technically, that means Berkeley will have to completely transform into an Amish community in 12 years.

Berkeley committed itself to becoming a "carbon sink" by 2030. For the uninitiated, that means they want the city's greenhouse gas emissions to be in the negative. Technically, that means Berkeley will have to completely transform into an Amish community in 12 years. Except they won't be able to use any farm animals, because you know, too much methane.

Becoming a carbon sink is not their only strategy. Their resolution also mentions that earth has too many people screwing up the atmosphere, so we must "humanely stabilize population." Interesting — there were some World War II-era figures also interested in "stabilizing" population. They just forgot the "humane" part.
