Glenn Beck: Couple prays 11 year old to death


RELATED STORY


Police: Girl Dies After Parents Pray for Healing Instead of Seeking Medical Help

GLENN: All right. 11-year-old girl died Sunday from treatable form of diabetes. Her parents prayed for her healing rather than seeing medical treatment. The girl's parents, Dale and Leilani Neumann believe she died because they didn't have enough faith. Members of the Neumann family operate the Monkey Mo coffee shop. You wouldn't think that anybody who owned the Monkey Mo coffee shop would be, like, praying their daughter to health without any medical treatment, do you?

STU: Why? Why not?

GLENN: I don't know. Monkey Mo coffee shop kinds like fun.

STU: Kind of sounds organic, like maybe the coffee bean might cure the diabetes.

GLENN: No, they would be pissed. They wouldn't put -- Monkey Mo, it's kind of like Monkey Mo, let's go to the Monkey Mo coffee shop. If you are a, you know, environmental hippie, you are like, "It's the monkey coffee shop and we shouldn't even call it monkeys. Monkeys, who are we to say monkeys? Monkeys are far better than us."

STU: Well, we invented the language.

GLENN: Getting the coffee shops, getting the coffee beans out of the rainforest, leaving our footprints in the rainforest? The monkeys weep right now.

So what they did is they put a sign on the business window that said, closed due to a family emergency but the family decided that instead of getting treatment for her diabetes that could be treated, they just prayed over here. Now, here's where I stand on this one. In fact, Stu, I would like you to refresh my memory. Do you remember the last time one of these things happened? Not with a cancer kid. Because I was for the cancer kid. Where was that, Houston or some place like that? Where the kid had cancer?

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: And he wanted alternative treatment? And I stood up and said he was 16 years old and if the parent said the 16-year-old -- wasn't that --

STU: Yeah, I don't remember exact age but it was -- yeah.

GLENN: He was like 16. He had already had chemotherapy and he was like, please don't do it again, please don't do it again, I can't take it, let's find some other alternative medicine. And, you know, hippie dad was like, yeah, right, dude, try this. And he went and they sought alternative medicine and it didn't work and the kid died and they were going to try to take the kid away and force him to have chemotherapy and I believe I was on the side of the parent.

STU: I think you were as well.

GLENN: Okay. Think back to the last time a kid died, though, before that where somebody was praying. I believe it was like two or three years ago and I was against the parents and said I'm torn but I'm going to give it to the state.

STU: I think your long-term --

GLENN: Curve? Stu -- curve on this has been that you -- has to be something rational and obvious. If there isn't any borderline about it, you've been with a parent in saying, look, they can parent their kid however they want. But if it's, you know, my kid has a knife stabbed in them, I'm not taking them to the hospital. If I pray, they will float away.

GLENN: Diabetes is one of those, totally curable, I mean saveable.

STU: Treatable.

GLENN: Treatable. Diabetes is one of those. If a kid has diabetes, you can treat that. Kid doesn't die.

STU: Right.

GLENN: Okay? So that would be over the -- you know, that's over the rainbow some place where you are like, hey, look, Toto's here and everything -- you're crazy if you don't treat your kid for diabetes. Would you agree?

STU: I certainly would treat my kid for diabetes.

GLENN: So would I. They are trying this -- they are charging this couple with murder. They want to charge them with murder. You are out of your mind. First of all, maybe with neglect, maybe with manslaughter, maybe. You can't do murder. Their intention was not to kill the child. Their intention was to heal the child. But beyond that I'm not willing -- if I'm on the jury, I'm the last guy -- oh, I can't wait. I have jury duty in Connecticut in June.

STU: Do you really?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: How does this keep happening to you?

GLENN: I don't know, but I can only hope they select me. But if I'm on the jury, nope, I'm not going after the parents. Nope. And here's why. I'm not giving this state any more power, none. No more. There is a trust deficit here. Not doing it. I don't trust these people at all.

STU: You know, look. There's a lot of reason to not trust the government. They don't do a very good job. There's a 13% approval rating of congress right now. In fact, there's -- even the Democrats are only at 17% approval of their own congress. So I mean, I understand there's a lot of reason, but isn't there a line where you wind up in a shack at the top of some mountain in a remote place with signs that say "Get off my land." I mean, I think there is some place for the government to exist.

GLENN: May I just answer it with this?

(Music playing).

GLENN: Get off my land! (Gunfire).

STU: Yes, this is you.

GLENN: What kind of scares me is, yes, there is a place with a guy like me with a rifle, you know, with your property backed up to some national park so you could just disappear in the woods and never be found. Oh, yes. Oh, yes. I've noodled it a lot.

STU: Are you -- let me ask you this. I know you've thought about it a lot. Are you comfortable with where you've turned out? This is why I'm asking you.

GLENN: Turn it up. I'm pretty happy with that so far, yep. Talk me out of it.

STU: Well, I think there is some line. Seriously let's take the ridiculous example I just brought out there a minute ago.

GLENN: Which one?

STU: Your kid -- a beam comes down from the ceiling and goes through your child's stomach, okay? It's now sticking through the stomach. Kid's alive. You could pull it out and the surgeon would be okay. And you say, you know what, I'm going to massage these magic beans until the beam leaves the stomach and the kid is magically healed.

GLENN: If I may say, if I may warn America, what Stu really means here is --

STU: Why are you stating it? I just said it.

GLENN: Glenn wants a "You're on your own" society.

STU: No.

GLENN: "Glenn wants to actually continue this kind of thinking."

STU: Well, I guess there is some part of it --

GLENN: Yes, go ahead.

STU: Like, for example, we must feed our infants. They can help themselves.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: So there is a line where there is something other than an "On your own" society.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: We've all recognized that for a millennia.

GLENN: We have, you have, I have. We've all done that. We all know what common sense is. This common sense, does common sense sound like you don't have the constitutional right to be able to homeschool your own child.

STU: I am with you on that.

GLENN: All righty then.

STU: But I don't want children to die for no reason, either.

GLENN: Neither do I.

STU: And if there's a rational -- to me I think I'm probably more on your side than the average person.

GLENN: No, you're not because you don't have a rifle.

STU: I'm leaning to your side because --

GLENN: No, I'm giving the keynote speech at the NRA. Oh, I have rifles. I have lots of rifles.

STU: You don't have to convince me. I'm just saying --

GLENN: And I have acreage and I have a shovel. You'll never be missed. Talk me down from the crazy tree! I don't think it can be done.

Glenn Beck: Elon Musk's 'Twitter Files' part 2 EXPLAINED

Former New York Times journalist Bari Weiss has unveiled the second round of Elon Musk's "Twitter Files" and, despite what the corporate media insists, this is a very big deal. Twitter clearly lied to us about shadow-banning conservatives, and now we have proof.

"Teams of Twitter employees built blacklists, prevented disfavored tweets from trending, and actively limited the visibility of entire accounts, or even trending topics, all in secret, without informing users," Weiss reported.

But that’s just the beginning. On "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday, Glenn explained everything inside the second set of "Twitter Files."

I recently came across an old propaganda poster from the Soviet Union. Vladimir Lenin stands in front of a giant red Soviet emblem. His right arm stretches forward with a caption that reads:

To the bright future of communist society, universal prosperity and enduring peace.

The words “TO THE BRIGHT FUTURE” would go on to be used by some — the Politburo, party officials and the KGB — as an excuse when they asserted their heavy hand on their people.

You don’t like reporting nothing but propaganda and lies in Soviet media? Don’t worry… it’s for your safety.

TO THE BRIGHT FUTURE!

Or… you don’t want your family member to go to the re-education camp? TO THE BRIGHT FUTURE.

For others — all the people suffering under Communist control — the phrase became a sort of coping mechanism. Sure this all sucks, but… TO THE BRIGHT FUTURE... I guess???

In the name of securing “universal prosperity and enduring peace,” the Soviets injected political commissars and KGB thugs into every aspect of society: industry, pseudo-businesses, the media… everywhere and everything. The State — which is always called THE PEOPLE for some reason — had their tentacles into everything. No decisions were made without their approval, order or manipulation.

We see this in totalitarian Leftist governments all over the world. Chinese companies are completely infiltrated by their politburo overlords. Under Xi Jinping, a national intelligence law signed in 2017 states:

Any organization or citizen shall support, assist, and cooperate with state intelligence work according to law.

Think about that the next time you use a phone that was made by Huawei, or you fire up TikTok to watch a string of cat videos with funny music in the background, or you purchase a Chinese-made watch that looks suspiciously like a near-perfect clone of an Apple watch.

The product you are using can be used to support Chinese national intelligence work. They’ve told us this upfront of course, but we use them all anyway.

Can I ask you a question? The way both the Soviets and Chinese treat businesses and their own people… how is OUR CURRENT SYSTEM any different?

The FBI — THE POLITICAL COMMISSARS THEMSELVES — admitted recently to holding regular meetings with all the big social media companies. They maintained quote “relationships” and “met weekly.” Mark Zuckerberg gave a hint on a Joe Rogan podcast on what some of the meetings contained. He said the FBI warned them about some Russian propaganda that was about to be released.

The FBI already had a copy of the laptop

We now know that this was referencing Hunter Biden’s laptop. But here’s the thing… the FBI already had a copy of the laptop. They KNEW that it wasn’t Russian propaganda. So why was the FBI feeding misinformation to social media companies to give a little wink-wink, nudge-nudge on what they should do when Hunter’s laptop came out?

We already know that the FBI didn’t want Donald Trump to become President. We saw that when an FBI lawyer was caught FALSIFYING EVIDENCE in order to get a FISA warrant to spy on Trump campaign official, Carter Page.

And speaking of FBI lawyers, it was the FBI’s top lawyer, James Baker, that helped facilitate the meeting between Democratic operative Michael Sussman and FBI investigators to look into the bogus Trump/Alfabank smear.

Baker would then leave the FBI, and guess who quickly hired him… TWITTER. We now know from Elon Musk’s Twitter file disclosure that James Baker, as now TWITTER’S top lawyer, helped to suppress the Hunter Biden laptop story.

But wait… THERE’S MORE. When Musk tried to release the files showing how Twitter suppressed the story, Baker INTERCEPTED the evidence to “vet” as it was about to get released. Was it to take out all the parts that showed FBI involvement? Musk wasn’t amused and FIRED James Baker. I wouldn’t be surprised if he just goes right back to his old job at the FBI.

The Twitter Files show how outside political actors, USUALLY from the left, have a far too friendly relationship with Big Tech, and these companies are all too willing to do their bidding.

We knew all of this already. It was OBVIOUS. But it’s a heck of a site to see it from their OWN EMAILS.

So… what’s the difference between us and the Soviet Union and China? The difference is that the people of the Soviet Union and China had this kind of behavior FORCED on them. Today, Silicon Valley AND THE MEDIA do it on their own accord. TO THE BRIGHT FUTURE!

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.
