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.

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
