Let's come together to make the cancer cure a reality

Hope lies in dreams, in imagination and in the courage of those who dare to make dreams into reality. -Jonas Salk, inventor of the first Polio vaccine.

Cancer is non-partisan.

It doesn’t care whether you’re pro-life or pro-choice; it doesn’t care what you think about tax rates; and it certainly doesn’t care whom you vote for.

That’s why it strikes me as odd that some people seem to have an issue with my attendance at an upcoming educational conference hosted by a non-profit group that is working on the world’s most promising cancer treatment.

It’s pretty incredible that some people are so blinded by their political ideology that they can’t even see how small and petty they’ve become. Here’s a simple formula to help them: Life > Voting records. Every time; no exceptions. In fact, there is probably not a political issue that Keith Olbermann or Bill Maher and I see eye-to-eye on, but if either of them were supporting research related to cancer or ALS or diabetes or Alzheimer’s—or any other life-altering disease—I would be happy to stand by their side.

I learned a long time ago that it’s not worth trying to change the people who think this way. It’s better to leave the small problems to the small-minded and instead focus on our dreams. Like, for example, curing cancer.

With that in mind, I’d like to introduce you to the group that is hosting me at this conference, a group that, I believe (even though they will never say it themselves), is trying to cure cancer, not just treat it.

It all started when John Kanzius, a former radio engineer, was diagnosed with leukemia in 2002. He began to receive treatment, including chemotherapy, and was shocked by its brutality. The hair loss, the fatigue, the nausea, the crippling numbness and nerve damage.

He was also shocked by the faces of the children around him. Kids of all ages bravely receiving treatment for a disease they never asked for. Bald heads, pale faces—hope and courage overcome by poison infused into tiny veins.

Week after week John Kanzius took all of this in and thought to himself: There has got to be a better way.

But there wasn’t.

Chemotherapy, as many cancer patients already know, is a double-edged sword. These toxic chemicals are the only thing keeping many people alive, yet they are also the only thing making them wish they were dead. The irony of most cancers, especially at their early stages, is that the disease itself often causes people no pain or quality of life issues. Instead, it’s the poison we use to treat them that makes most patients miserable.

There has got to be a better way.

John Kanzius didn’t know anything about cancer. Or chemotherapy. Or medical research. But he did know about something else: radio waves. He remembered back to the first time he’d climbed a radio tower. His companion had warned him to take off his watch and leave his keys in the car. Why? Because radio waves, while harmless to the human body, would heat metal almost instantly.

Now, years later, sitting in a chemo chair with an IV dripping poison into his veins, Kanzius thought back to that strange quirk of nature. If radio waves could heat metal while leaving the rest of the body untouched, then perhaps they could also kill malignant cells while leaving the healthy ones untouched.

And so he began to experiment. He set up a transmitter in his garage using a couple of his wife’s pie pans, stuck a metal probe into a raw hotdog, and blasted it with radio waves. The metal probe got warm; hot enough to start to cook the hotdog next to it, while the remainder stayed cold.

A big idea was born. A better way.

As John’s disease progressed he eventually began to receive care at M.D. Anderson in Houston, one of the world’s premier cancer centers. He explained his radio wave concept to his oncologist, who in turn introduced him to Dr. Steven Curley, who was, well, skeptical. But the more John talked about the science behind his idea, the more Dr. Curley came to believe that the logic was sound. The doctor eventually made a solemn promise to John: no matter what happened, he would see the idea through to human trials.

John Kanzius died in 2009, but his dream never has.

Today, 23 doctors, researchers and chemists staff a lab dedicated to research of the Kanzius Noninvasive Radiowave Cancer Treatment at The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. Five more are at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. It’s cutting edge technology, and it’s all funded by a tiny little non-profit based in Erie, Pennsylvania called the Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation (KCRF).

Three new radio wave generating machines have recently been delivered to Dr. Curley’s team. These are far more advanced that the earlier versions and have tables that can support up to 800 pounds—more than enough for human trials. The early test results, using these machines and targeted nanoparticles, are beyond promising, but there is still a long way to go. And they need our help.

If you believe that real innovation (Dr. Curley won a Tribeca Film Festival Disruptive Innovation Award earlier this year) should be encouraged, then I ask you to join me in helping to push this technology forward. You can do that by making a donation to the Kanzius Foundation, or, even better, by joining me for lunch at their first national FACES conference in Erie, PA on Saturday, October 27. Dr. Curley, along with other Kanzius researchers, will also be there and will provide the latest research updates.

It’s easy to sit back and complain about chemotherapy, about how cancer has robbed so many of their hopes and dreams, about how it’s left so many children without parents and parents without children.

It’s a lot harder to do something to change all that.

I don’t know if radio waves are the answer. I don’t know if they’ll try this on humans one day and realize that it’s a complete failure. But I do know two things: First, if this idea fails, someone will pick up the pieces, make a slight course correction, and take the next big step. And second, I want to be a part of it. I want to help make cancer history.

The Biden administration wants to fundamentally change our economy and they've made some truly game-changing moves in recent days, but you won't hear anyone in the mainstream media talking about it. If you want to know what the government doesn't want you to notice, pay attention to what the White House releases on Friday afternoons.

Last Friday afternoon — when fewer people would notice — the administration announced a new "comprehensive, government-wide strategy" to overhaul our nation's economy and protect us all from the "financial risks of climate change."

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck reviewed Biden's new climate finance report and explained why he believes the administration's plans to fundamentally change the economy is "the most dangerous movement in the world right now."

Glenn started out by playing a video clip of White House press secretary Jen Psaki telling reporters, "The President wants to make fundamental change in our economy, and he feels coming out of the pandemic is exactly the time to do that" during a press briefing last week.

"That's interesting because what she just said is the exact language, almost a quote, from the people over at the Great Reset, the World Economic Forum," Glenn said of Psaki's statement.

"This is the most dangerous movement in the world right now. It is a direct shot, by a railgun, at liberty. And when I started talking about this, about a year and a half ago, the system went into overdrive to call it a conspiracy. ... This is how they shut people down. They isolate and alienate you by calling the opposition conspiracy theorists. Everything is a conspiracy. Well, there are some conspiracies out there. But you need to know the difference between conspiracy theory and conspiracy fact."

On the morning of Aug. 15, Asma was a free woman in Kabul. She wore Western clothes. Traveled safely alone. Attended college in a neighboring country with the money her parents had saved. By that evening, her entire world had changed.

For the first time in her life, Asma was confronted with the reality of the Taliban. The horror stories she heard growing up were no longer the nightmare of her parents' generation. They were hers, too. Faced with the impossible decision to stay with her family and risk imminent torture or death, she chose to live, and take on the Taliban face-to-face.

Asma's bravery also led to the rescue of over 150 Afghan college women. She tells Glenn she was willing to die before she let the Taliban take her or the other women. But she didn't do it alone. Her sister Azada, helplessly watching the horror unfold from the U.S., quickly turned to her father's contact list. What follows is a miracle evacuation story that ends with a sisters' reunion and hope for a new future. These brave Afghan sisters have a message for those in their home country still trapped, for the leaders of this country, and for the men and women in uniform (and their families) who may believe the American sacrifices for Afghanistan were in vain.

Finally, a note about the other heroes in the rescue story. The movement of the seven buses of college women into the Kabul airport was a chain with about 8-10 links. Had any one of those links not been present or broken, the young women would not have made it into the airport for evacuation, and three young women taken by the Taliban would not have been recovered.

Glenn and his team would like to give a special thanks to Francisco from Arcis International, Wade and Jim from Commercial Task Force, Blaine from E3 Ranch Foundation, Michael and his crew from Kam Air, No One Left Behind, Samaritan's Purse, and Charmaine, Chris, Geno, John, Lori, Rob, Rudy & the Ground Team from The Nazarene Fund.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.
