401 kids from polygamist sect in state custody

Authorities said Monday they have taken legal custody of 401 children who lived on an isolated West Texas polygamist retreat built by imprisoned "prophet" Warren Jeffs.

The children are being kept at a temporary shelter at historic Fort Concho in nearby San Angelo while authorities investigate whether a child bride gave birth on the ranch at age 15.

The children in state custody are joined at the shelter by 133 women, most of them mothers, who were taken during the past few days from the sprawling Yearning for Zion ranch, said Marleigh Meisner, a spokeswoman for the state's Child Protective Services agency.

Glenn Beck has warned that one day, you'll wake up and not recognize your country anymore. Are you there yet?

Governments at every level have been weaponized against Americans. The FBI shows up in full tactical gear at the homes of pro-lifers, terrifying young children and grandmas for the "crime" of peacefully protesting abortion. The ATF surprises legal gun owners on their doorsteps, demanding to see their firearms. State governments are trying to sneak in laws that allow the sexual mutilation of children — without the parents’ consent.

When we become confused as to what the government can and cannot do, we become numb to tyranny and take it on the chin, as we did with the COVID-19 mandates. And when the state comes knocking, we don’t know how to deal with it because we haven’t lived in that kind of country since 1791. Glenn warns we’re on the same road as every empire that ended in collapse.

On tonight's special presentation, Glenn features the stories of every-day Americans who have experienced government tyranny firsthand:
  • A gun shop owner who encountered a bone-chilling inspection by the ATF.
  • A father fighting for the right to see his twins after objecting to his 3-year-old son going through gender transition.
  • A woman who had almost $1M seized from her bank accounts even though she and her husband were never charged with a crime.
  • A couple who had their home raided by the FBI over a case of mistaken identity.
  • An FBI agent who turned whistleblower after he became fed up with the abuses he saw over Jan. 6 raids.

But tyrants can only exist when the people they are trying to subjugate forget that there are fundamental rights granted not by the state but by a higher power. And we have the blueprint to stop tyranny dead in its tracks. The founders armed us with the tools — we just need to know how to wield them. So how do peaceful Americans stand up to tyranny that comes in the disguise of “law”? Glenn and a panel of legal experts, including Sen. Mike Lee, arm you with the answers so you'll know what to do when the government comes knocking on YOUR door next.

CRYPTO CRASH: The REAL story behind Sam Bankman-Fried's FTX scandal

The fall of FTX and Sam Bankman-Fried has sent shock waves through the cryptocurrency world. But is this just another failed Ponzi scheme, or is there more to this story? On this episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Glenn got a “Bitcoin for Dummies” guide from Marty Bent, who explained what actually happened with FTX, where he believes the markets will go from here, and whether this is connected at all to Bankman-Fried's massive donations to the Democrat Party.

Marty has devoted his career to safeguarding financial freedom from the tyranny of the government and elites — a major focus of his newsletter “Marty’s Bent” and podcasts, including “Tales from the Crypt.” He’s critical of the globalist vision for our financial future, which he sees as the result of a “progressive” movement to get rid of God.

On the podcast, Marty warned that the FTX scandal could make a convenient excuse for centralizing Bitcoin and ushering in more state control, mass surveillance, ESG, and social credit scores. In fact, he said, the Federal Reserve’s push for a digital dollar has already begun.

DITCH MITCH? Why McConnell has 'GOT TO GO'

Glenn Beck on Monday tore into Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) for allocating $7 million from the Senate Leadership Fund to Alaska — a race that would "go to a Republican either way" — instead of the Arizona Senate race, saying "if there's one person who's responsible for the Democrats keeping control of the Senate, it's McConnell."

As McConnell pushes to hold an election for Republican leadership as soon as possible, several Republican senators are calling for the postponement of internal leadership elections, which are currently slated to occur this week even though several races still don't have winners.

"Mitch McConnell has got to go," Glenn stated. "Why did [he] put so much money in the Murkowski [R-Alaska] race when we knew it was going to be a Republican either way? ... We all know why he did that. He did that because he wanted to make sure he had Murkowski, who would kowtow to him. [...] We also know why he didn't put money into [Arizona Republican candidate] Blake Masters, who could've won that race. He didn't put any money there because he knew Blake Masters would not kowtow."

Glenn went on to suggest it's time for each of us to call our state's Republican senators and make it clear that if they plan to vote for Mitch, they can plan on not having your vote when the next election rolls around.

"Let's see who's on the side of Mitch McConnell, who's a member of the Mitch's B***hes Club ... who is it that will actually stand with this guy, because ... he was instrumental in getting nothing done. Nothing," he said. "Mitch McConnell and his ilk are going to be exactly the same as they have always been."
