Bigoted Judges Shut Down 16-year-old Singer Purely Because of Her Beliefs

Penn Jillette showed this story to me when he joined my TV show Monday.

It's about a 16-year-old girl from Ecuador who was on one of those reality shows "Ecuador's Got Talent."

She sang and was pretty good.

Obviously being set up by the producers, the judges didn't comment or ask a single question about her singing. Instead, the only question was: "Do you believe in God?"

Now, I do, her father who was backstage clearly does and the judges apparently do. She does not.

Right after this song, this girl was asked the question and then lectured to about how she needed to believe in God. They all refused to send her forward because of her non-belief! They wanted to teach her a lesson that without God you will never make it.

I am so glad this didn't happen here as I don't think I could handle yet another crazy thing like this from Americans.

Put yourself in her shoes. Being humiliated on national TV for your belief. Do you think she went home and cracked open a bible and thought, "gee, someday I want to be just like those judges!"

"Man must learn, freedom goes both ways."

You are free to believe or not. You are free to be for Trump or Clinton or not. You are free to make all kinds of decisions I wouldn't make and I may disagree with, or not.

You have certain rights, at least here. And while we may not make the same choice, we still must live with each other.

I would hope any in America siding with the judges' reaction to her belief would consider this: Our founders took their own time to testify in court on behalf of those facing religious persecution at the hands of people who were either of the same faith or close to the same faith as the founders themselves.

When will we get to a time where we can live side by side with people who disagree with us?

When will we understand that humans come in all shapes, sizes and political and religious belief?

I believe her life would be better if she believed in a just and living God, and if one of the judges or all of them felt that way too, great.

Maybe to say that to her after the show, or even one of them making a comment on the show --- but to judge her solely on this and to grandstand for the applause is sad.

Do you think this is the best way to show others who Christians are?

The thing we have to remember is:

A: We don't want to be those people.

B: It is becoming harder and harder to be someone who worships God and really lives it. Do we want to be treated like this?

How would you feel if this was your daughter and she was passed by because she was Christian?

Do unto others, seems to be a pretty important idea.

I am grateful that this lesson came from another country as I am tired of seeing us on the news. But I'm sad for her and Christians in Ecuador and worldwide who now are reading stories all around the globe making us all look like these four judges.

Watch her face and I think you will feel the same.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
