B.S. of A.'s Matt Fisher discusses his sister and the viral story of his family's battle with Progressive Insurance

All week, The B.S. of A.'s Matt Fisher has been taking to social media to share the story of what he and his family have been going through in their battle with Progressive Insurance. Today, he joined Glenn on radio to discuss what he and his family have been going through.

Before Matt joined the program, Glenn reviewed the details of the case. Two years ago, Matt's sister Katie was killed when she was driving and struck by a driver who ran a red light. While the driver was underinsured, Katie's policy with Progressive Auto Insurance covered the difference between what her estate should have been paid and the amount that the underinsured driver's insurance paid out. However, due to state laws, they had to prove the driver's negligence, and they took him to civil court.

Progressive then did the unthinkable – rather than pay out the payment for the person they insured, they ended up defending her killer in court.

After the family ended up proving the driver's negligence in court, Matt took to his blog to write about the situation in a post titled "My Sister Paid Progressive Insurance to Defend Her Killer In Court". The post quickly went viral, and Progressive tried to minimize their involvement on public platforms including Twitter, Facebook, and the internet.

"Thank you so much for having me.  And thank you so much for shedding so much light on this situation," Matt said as he joined the show.

After explaining the details of what happened to his sister, Matt explained what he saw when he went to court. Rather than support their policy holder, the company actively tried to show that Katie Fisher was at fault for the accident to avoid paying the policy.

"In the trial I sat and watched the trial and I wasn't a party to it.  My parents were," he said. "But during the trial a lawyer from progressive argued against my sister.  Argued that my sister was at fault in the accident that killed her."

"Her insurance company was arguing for the person who actually struck her with the car," Stu explained.

Matt described, "He gave an opening statement in the trial where he said the other driver wasn't negligent.  He questioned and cross‑examined witnesses.  He gave a closing statement where he asked the jury to find that my sister was negligent."

How much were they supposed to pay to Katie's estate? What was the price of putting the family through this painful process, a process that has ultimately resulted in their own brand being pummeled on social media? $75,000!

"All over $75,000.  That is amazing.  You would think they were talking about $5 million.  They make this big a deal over $75,000," Pat said.

"It's outrageous.  It's mystifying to me.  I can't imagine what portion of the $75,000 they wasted dragging us into court," Matt said.

"Let me give you a piece of nonlegal issue," Glenn said. "Make them pay $75,000.  And make them pay, and more and more important than money make them fire the people that were responsible so this doesn't happen to somebody else.  Look at the pain you went through.  It's not about money.  It's making sure this doesn't happen to somebody else's family."

Glenn then asked Matt to talk about his sister Katie.

"She was 24 at the time, and I very much appreciate you asking.  It's one of the perverse things about that here I am talking about insurance if I had the ear of the world I'd be talking about my sister. She was seven years my junior.  She was an engineer.  She had just got her master at Johns Hopkins.  And I had no one closer in my life.  I've never heard of any two people as close as my sister and I were.  And I've never heard of anyone who has been as good to another as my sister was to me."

SInce the interview with Glenn, Matt has taken to Twitter using the hashtag #KatieFisher so people can read and hear stories about her life, rather than just her death.

Others have picked up on it as well:

 

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
