Return of Grace

GLENN: It's spooky, spooky stuff and I did that and my apologies. Tomorrow on Good Morning America Tania makes her first national television appearance. Please say a pray for her. She's going to be so nervous, she's going to be vomiting blood while I have blood shooting out my butt but that's on tomorrow, Good Morning America. Tonight Headline Prime at 7:00 and right after me is Nancy Grace who literally almost died in the hospital giving birth to two twins. Tonight she tells you the whole story. Tonight she's back on and she's on with us now. Hello, Nancy.


 GRACE: Hi, Glenn. I'm happy to be back, not necessarily happy to work but happy to be back.


 GLENN: How are the kids doing?


 GRACE: I'm glad to talk to you. I've been watching you. You've been everywhere.


 GLENN: It's been crazy. What's it like to have a two pound baby?


 GRACE: Scary. It was very scary. She was very fragile and when I first saw her and told her, both of them were hooked up to so many wires and a box, kind of a glass box in the preemie ward and I could just put my two hands through to barely touch them.


 GLENN: I remember when my daughter was born she had to go into intensive care for another reason and there was a preemie there on the ward and I believe she was right around 2 pounds and you couldn't even speak loudly because it could collapse the lungs. Is that still the case with 2 pounds? Is she that fragile?


 GRACE: Lucy is up to nearly 8 pounds now and John David is up to nearly 10 pounds.


 GLENN: Wow. And are you healthy? Because you almost -- you almost died.


 GRACE: I know. I didn't realize how serious it was until I was out of the hospital. I'm glad they didn't kill me. But I'm still on long-term treatment for the blood clots.


 GLENN: Wait, wait. What do you mean you are glad they didn't kill you?


 GRACE: I'm glad they didn't tell me.


 GLENN: Oh, they didn't tell you?


 GRACE: How dangerous the whole thing had become. I was so out of it, I didn't understand how serious it was.


 GLENN: Yeah. You know, I just got out of the hospital. I just spent five days in the hospital.


 GRACE: I heard. I'm glad you're out.


 GLENN: I had the most eye-opening experience on our healthcare and I talked to the head of this hospital that I was in on Friday and he started in and, you know, I want to give him the benefit of the doubt. We'll see if they make any changes. But give him the benefit of the doubt but at the end of the conversation he started in on me on, well, we need a new hospital and, you know, maybe you can help us raise funds for a new hospital. And I said, don't even start with me, Doc. Are you out of your mind? It's not about a new hospital. It's not about nice shiny new things. It's about people.


 Did you run into a lack of compassion at all in your experience in the healthcare system?


 GRACE: I did. Overall, well, especially when I was in the hospital up here in New York. You know, New York, the capital of the world, I thought everything would be top notch. It was not that way at all. In fact, frankly I credit the Northside hospital doctors for saving my life and the life of Lucy and John David. Yeah, I ran up against the very same thing you did.


 GLENN: You know what's amazing, Nancy, is I mean, that's where you're on the front lines of the immigration debate. It's almost like welcome to America; clean up this vomit. And to find somebody who spoke English without an accent was almost impossible.


 GRACE: You know what, Glenn, I was so out of it, I don't know what anybody was speaking. For the longest time it was like a big blur. Just, I remember I would just want so desperately to go over to the prenatal unit to see the twins and I was hooked up to so much stuff. Finally they took me over there in a wheelchair and I trailered behind with all the IV and what people go through. You know, childbirth is considered routine now. It's not.


 GLENN: You are back to work tonight. Are you back full time? I mean, how are you going to do that?


 GRACE: I'm back full time. My mother did it, my grandmother did it working, in fact raising two kids. And if they can do it, I can do it. Just like the rest of American mothers have to work and go back, have to work and take care of the children. If they can do it, I can do it. I've got to tell you, it's pretty tough. It's hard to take care of twins and work.


 GLENN: Yeah.


 GRACE: What's the most difficult thing is being away from them. Even being away from them this morning to go to GMA and talk to Robin on Headline. It has been -- you know, I'm worried about them, worried about them the whole time.


 GLENN: What have you walked away with? How has Nancy Grace changed from this experience?


 GRACE: Well, I learned many years ago after the murder of my fiance but it's been reinforced, Glenn, how fragile life is and I changed immensely because of Lucy and John David. They have given me a whole different view of life. I never really thought I could ever love anything so much again and I do and it's scary and dangerous and wonderful all at the same time to love something so much, so incredibly much. A lot of people ask me, is there going to be a softer, gentler, kinder Nancy Grace. I've got to tell you, Glenn, after holding John David and Lucy and loving them so much, anyone that hurts, abuses, mistreats, much less kills a child can rot in hell.


 GLENN: I've got to tell you, anybody who says is this going to be a softer Nancy Grace doesn't have a child of their own. The reason why we do, at least I do and I think you are the same way, the reason why we do what we do is because we see what this world is coming to for our children, for the love of Pete. Somebody's got to stand up for our children and take our country and take our society back.


 GRACE: You know, I was prosecutor at inner city Atlanta. So many kids where, Glenn, children were mistreated, abused, sexually or physically, even killed. And I always thought of them as the children that I never had. And so protective of them. And they get such a raw deal in court. And now after holding these twins I feel I need to redouble my efforts.


 GLENN: What's the special happening on tonight's program besides your return?


 GRACE: Well, we'll doing a live look at the twins and their bassinets. They wanted to bring them in live. I'm like, are you kidding? No way. And, of course, they had World War III about that but finally we settled on the live hookup to the twins during the show and I'll be taking the viewers' phone calls. I've got a ton of photos that I haven't shared that we'll have on the show tonight.


 GLENN: Nice to have you back. It really is.


 GRACE: I want you to call the show tonight. But it's got to be about the twins.


 GLENN: You got it. Thank you, Nancy. We'll talk to you tonight.


 GRACE: Bye, love.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
