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:

 

A Russian submarine equipped with a “doomsday weapon” — a nuclear bomb that Russia claims can create a "radioactive tsunami" — has apparently vanished from its base in the White Sea, according to reports.

NATO has reportedly warned that the "Belgorod," a massive nuclear submarine, has "gone missing" from a Russian base in the Arctic Circle, and officials are concerned that Russia could be gearing up to test its advanced weapon system known as "Poseidon" or the "weapon of the Apocalypse."

Meanwhile, the U.S. Navy's newest aircraft carrier, the USS Gerald R. Ford, has suddenly been declared combat-ready after years of setbacks, technology issues, and delays.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck detailed just how powerful Russia's "missing" submarine really is and broke down how these "coincidental" current events mirror those that led up to World War II.

"It's really not a good thing ... but the world has gone through things like this before," Glenn said. "In the end, after it's all over, good things can happen. You just gotta get to the other side."

Did the FBI just get away with the BIGGEST armed robbery in US history?

In 2021, an armed group broke into a U.S. Private Vaults store in Beverly Hills and stole $86 million worth of valuables — the largest armed robbery in U.S. history. That "armed group" was the FBI. Now, it appears that the FBI and U.S. attorney’s office in Los Angeles "misled" the judge who signed the warrant for the seizure and still haven't returned the stolen goods to the 700 customers affected, according to newly disclosed court filings.

The details of the government’s alleged deception have come to light in a class-action lawsuit by U.S. Private Vaults customers who say the raid violated their rights, the Los Angeles Times reported. The FBI and U.S. attorney’s office denied misleading the judge, and a spokesperson claimed the warrants were lawfully executed.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed some of the shocking story's details and discussed why incidents like this may become more common.

"None of the customers have been charged with any crimes. Not a single customer, out of the 700, not a single customer has been charged with a crime, but they can't get their stuff back," Glenn noted. "And this is going to happen more and more."

"It's incomprehensible that this stuff goes on in the United States of America," Stu said. "If you were to tell me this happened, you know, in Russia, I'd expect it. The fact that the United States government is claiming and just taking stuff from citizens all around the country with no crime, many times without even being charged, let alone ... conviction."

"Listen to this," Glenn continued. "The lawsuit also claims that some of the box holders who came forward to reclaim their seized property were then subjected to another investigation. If you went to the FBI and said, 'I want my stuff back,' the FBI examined their bank accounts, their DMV records, their tax return, and any criminal history checks."

However, box holders who decided to forfeit their property were also suspected of trying to "avoid becoming an FBI target," Glenn noted.

"So, you're guilty if you walk away and you're guilty if you ask," Stu added.

"This is America, gang," Glenn said. "It doesn't seem like it because it's not a constitutional America. But this is the America we now live in, and it is important that you wake up and stand up. ... God's people have got to start standing up, or we'll lose freedom. The world's freedom will be on our heads."

Glenn Beck: One TERRIFYING thing is clear no matter who caused the Nord Stream pipeline leaks

Evidence strongly suggests that the Nord Stream pipeline leaks were the result of sabotage, and U.S. and European officials have been working to discover who could be behind the explosions that damaged the natural gas pipelines running from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea.

Was it Russia? Ukraine? Germany? But no matter who carried this out, it has put the entire world in grave danger, because if this is indeed an attack, it means that non-military key infrastructure outside Ukraine is now on the "target menu," warned Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It is so important for you to understand, this is now a non-military key infrastructure that has been destroyed," Glenn explained. "If Russia thinks we did it, they've already said, 'Nukes are now on the table.' That gives us a green light to use nukes," he added.

"This is non-military key infrastructure outside of the borders of Ukraine. To date, as far as we know, combat targets were either in Ukraine, or were military targets hit inside of Russia by Ukrainian Air Force or special forces. But the target menu now includes key civilian infrastructure: electricity, water utilities, energy production. That makes Russia more dangerous than ever. And that would be true no matter who carried out the attack," Glenn stated.

Now, the Russians are saying the Unted States did it, and the U.S. is saying it was Russia. But no matter who carried out the attack, "We are facing a Cuban Missile Crisis," said Glenn.

"This could end up being the biggest story of our lifetime and ... if it isn't played calmly by every side, this could be World War III," he continued. "Russia has already said that this gives them the right to use nuclear weapons as soon as they find out for sure who did it. That would be catastrophic, absolutely catastrophic."

The White House can try to spin inflation all day long (and it's trying very hard). But you feel the effects of President Joe Biden’s disastrous leadership every time you go to the grocery store or fill up your car. The American economy is on the brink of disaster after less than two years of a Democrat-controlled Congress and White House. And they’ve got plenty more destruction in the works.

The bottom line is they WANT you to get used to a lower living standard. So, what do you do? How do you prepare? What will food and fuel cost in the months ahead? What would the next Great Depression look like? How are you going to feel the effects of ESG and the Left’s war on oil?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck brings in a panel of economic experts to answer those questions. He’s joined by Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” and Jim Iuorio, a small business owner, stockbroker, and managing director of TJM Institutional Services. While both forecast the worst-case scenario for average Americans, they also offer a glimmer of hope to get us out of this mess.
