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.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck discussed the recent news that a primary source for the Steele Dossier — the document on which much of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was based — had been investigated by the FBI for contacts with suspected Russian spies. Glenn also shared several previously unpublished texts and emails from FBI agents have recently been released.

According to a letter sent by Attorney General William Barr to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, the FBI knew early on that the research compiled by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele relied on a "Primary Sub-source" that had been "the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his or her contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers" — but still used it to obtain warrants to spy on former Trump campaign-aide Carter Page.

But, it gets even worse. Now, new leaked texts and communications from FBI agents within the department at the time of the entire Russian collusion effort were disclosed in federal court filings on Thursday. According to the court documents, FBI agents purchased "professional liability insurance" to protect themselves in January 2017, just weeks before Donald Trump was inaugurated president, because they were concerned about the agency's potentially illegal activity during the Russia collusion investigation.

"Trump was right," one FBI employee wrote in response to then-President-elect Trump's Jan 3, 2017 tweet which read: "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"

Chief researcher Jason Buttrill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss an "explosive" new report released Wednesday by Senate Republicans on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Among other serious allegations, the 87-page report claims that "Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," and the richest woman in Russia.

"The transactions discussed [in the report] are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family," the report stated.

Jason suggested the Senate's findings provide additional evidence to back allegations of a money-laundering scheme, which Glenn detailed in a four-part series about Biden's shady connections to Ukraine. Learn more on this here.

"Laundered money is very hard to track to its finality," Jason explained. "I'm sure the Biden camp is really hoping that it just looks suspicious, but [investigators] don't ever find the eventual end point. But, if they do – and it's possible they already have – this is going to be explosive, very explosive."

Revolutions rarely happen overnight. The Left started laying the groundwork for November 3, 2020, the moment Hillary Clinton had to concede the 2016 election to Donald Trump. It was always solely about getting rid of President Trump — and there's a playbook for that.

Last week, Glenn Beck showed you the "Seven Pillars of Color Revolution" written by a former U.S. diplomat, which are the conditions that must be in place for a successful Eastern European-style "Color Revolution." The left seems to be pushing for a Color Revolution this election because they are using the exact same playbook.

In part two of this series, Glenn peels back the layers on the first four of these Color Revolution pillars to show you how they work and what the end goal is. And he reveals one of the architects of the playbook – a Color Revolution specialist, former ambassador, and former Obama administration official who is one of the key masterminds of this revolution.

Joining Glenn is political campaign veteran and BlazeTV host Steve Deace who says the polls that claim Biden is leading the race "are trash." We're being set up to believe that if Trump wins in spite of the polls, it must be an invalid election.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.
