Starting the New Year Right: Glenn Honors Fallen Veteran

Glenn shared a photo of the bracelet he's been wearing since Christmas on Facebook this weekend. The bracelet once belonged to SGT Patrick Tainsh of the 5-15th Cavalry, who was mortally wounded by a roadside bomb in Iraq on May 29th, 2012. SGT Tainsh was posthumously awarded the Silver Star for his determination and heroism.

Glenn wanted to start the new year right by recognizing SGT Tainsh and others who have fought and died to protect our rights. The responses that poured in were inspiring.

Here is Glenn's original post:

I don't know if Patrick's mom is still a fan, but I met her years ago on the Christmas Sweater tour.

She asked me if I would wear her son's bracelet for a few days.

She told me his story.

I told her I would be honored to wear it. I wore it every day for a couple of years.

Patrick was an amazing patriot who turned his life around with the help of amazing parents. He was killed in action saving the lives of others. Any parent would be more than proud to call Patrick "son."

I just wanted Mrs. Tainsh to know that I still think of Patrick and I have been wearing his bracelet again since Christmas.

My kids are old enough now to ask, and remember who Patrick was and why I wear his name.

Let me start this new year out right. By thanking those who have fought and the families of those who died to protect my family and our right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.

You are not forgotten.

Among the replies was a post from SGT Tainsh's commander Stacey Corn, who shared details of the heroic actions of Tainsh and others that fateful day.

I was SGT Tainsh's commander and he was my gunner. I was with him the night he died. What he did that night was heroic. There were many acts of heroism that night, A.C. Collette was the medic that exposed himself to enemy fire and moved under SGT Tainsh covering fire to render aid to PFC Ramirez who was mortally wounded. SGT Tainsh did not stop until he ran out of ammo even though he was mortally wounded. The very definition of a hero. This is the bracelet I wear every day. Thank you for remembering him and all that have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Others who knew Tainsh added their own memories of the fallen warrior.

To complete the circle, Deborah Tainsh --- who gave Glenn the bracelet in the first place --- entered the conversation with her reply.

Glenn Beck I will always be a fan. Thank you for everything. My husband USMC Sgt Major retired David Tainsh passed away Dec 23 2014 from stage 4 lung and brain cancer attributed to agent orange. A highlight of his life was meeting you and having you wear Patrick's bracelet.

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."
