SHAMEFUL: Dad sues Boy Scouts after son with Down syndrome is rejected, stripped of badges

Logan Blythe, a 15-year-old boy with Down syndrome, has wanted to become an Eagle Scout for years. He’s been working hard to earn the required merit badges and was planning his final project, when his family received an email from the Boy Scout district advancement committee saying that Logan had not followed the exact requirements to earn his badges.

Leaders of the local Boy Scout chapter had made special accommodations for Logan’s disability so that he could earn his badges at the best of his ability. He was only one step away from achieving his goal and becoming an Eagle Scout when officials with the National Boy Scout Organization contacted the Blythe family to say that Logan’s Eagle project had been suspended and his badges voided.

“Logan’s project was suspended and every badge that he had earned since graduating from the Cub Scouts to the Boy Scouts was voided,” Chad Blythe, Logan’s father told The Salt Lake Tribune. Chad filed a suit against the Boy Scouts of America and the Utah National Parks Council on March 13 asking for $1 and for his son to be reinstated in the Boy Scouts.

“Really? Isn’t that a given? I mean, the way Logan can complete things is obviously a little different,” said Glenn of the National Boy Scout officials’ claim that Logan had not completed all of the requirements exactly as written. “But he did everything that was asked of him to the best of his ability. He wasn’t handed a participation trophy. This was a hard earned journey for him that took years.

YOU will be RESPONSIBLE for loss of rights if you riot

A new poster is circulating social media, calling for a record-breaking armed protest to take place across America on Inauguration Day. Here's Glenn's advice for those considering attendance: DON'T GO. No matter who is responsible for the poster or for any possible future chaos that may take place, the far left and the media WILL blame Trump supporters regardless of the facts. And because of that, if you attend and partake in rioting, you WILL be responsible for the loss of our rights that will come as a result. Don't go. But, listen to this clip to find out what Glenn thinks you SHOULD do on Inauguration Day instead…

Can Frustrated Conservatives Learn from the Tea Party? | Matt Kibbe | Ep 92

The nation was shocked as the "Save America" rally in Washington, D.C., devolved into a siege of the U.S. Capitol. The day after, as heads were still spinning, Glenn sits down with Matt Kibbe, host of BlazeTV's "Kibbe on Liberty," to look at what led to this: Woke authoritarianism is in power, lockdowns are unending, and the Left has finally found out how to weaponize fear. The media is all too happy to watch the country burn, as long as the Left is holding the torch. But Glenn and Matt remember the lessons learned from the Tea Party, Martin Luther King Jr., and other movements that found success through peace. Conservatives and libertarians must find a path forward so we have more 9-12 marches, fewer stormings of the Capitol, and real change from those who believe they rule over us.

Here's how the left used COVID-19 to DESTROY us & our kids

COVID 19 was used to not only destroy businesses, morale, and education but to destroy us and our kids, too. The left is in control of nearly everything now, and they've used that power to make us feel alone. Glenn says he believes a miracle could happen to turn this great nation back towards the principles on which it was founded — BUT, we must turn back towards God first. Life DOES have meaning and tomorrow WILL be better.
