Where did things go wrong for Miley Cyrus?

If you've turned on a TV, radio, read a newspaper, got on social media, or basically walked outside, you've heard about the Miley Cyrus performance at last night's MTV VMAs. While most of the media is talking about how "shocking" it was, Glenn took a minute to talk about a different angle — her parents.

"Billy, are you proud?" Glenn asked rhetorically this morning during the radio program. "Did she think that, 'yep, Dad's proud. Dad's proud of me now.' And was her dad proud?"

Six years ago, when Glenn was on CNN's Headline News, he interviewed Billy Ray Cyrus about his daughter's success — at that time she was a rising start among young children on the Disney Channel.

Stu recalled that during the interview, after Glenn asked if he's worried about Miley becoming the next Lindsey Lohan or Britney Spears, Cyrus answered that he tries to be close to his daughter. He tries to be her "best friend".

"That's a problem," Pat stated.

Stu agreed, noting that's the standard "bad thing" you want to try to avoid to a certain degree. He goes on to note that there must be a hard balance in the entertainment world between trying to raise your child correctly and allowing them to enjoy their success.

"I don't know how you walk that line," Stu said.

"You don't," Pat replied poignantly.

"That's why Ron Howard is the exception," Glenn added, noting that he too struggles to make his children aware of how unusual their lifestyle is compared to most kids.

"I've flailing and trying desperately to make sure that they understand that they live a privileged life. But I think I'm failing at that. And it is extraordinarily difficult to do," he said. "But one thing that you don't do is hand your kids off to Disney."

But when Walt Disney was alive, it may have been different, Pat pointed out.

"I don't think it would have been too bad a thing," he told Glenn. "It didn't seem like Annette Funicello went off the deep end."

The difference is Walt was present. He knew what he wanted his company to represent… and what Miley Cyrus did last night wasn't it.

"He was shepherding," Glenn said. "The reason why Rob Howard didn't go bad is because he had Andy Griffith there. He said Andy Griffith was like a dad to him. The whole time he was counseling him, 'don't let this go to your head. Don't pay attention to that. Don't listen to any of that.' So he had that, he still had guidance there. And the same thing if you're reading about Walt Disney. All of the kids that worked for Walt Disney — he did the same. He didn't build them into little monsters."

Looking at Miley's performance at the VMA's, it's clear she doesn't have that type of strong moral influence in her daily life. Looking back at Glenn's former interview with Billy Ray Cyrus, it was clear that her odds of avoiding this path were slim to none.

Instead of a strong father figure to help act as a GPS to guide her in the right directions later in life, she got a 'buddy'.

So how did Billy Ray react to Miley's performance? Well...we don't know for sure, but here's what he tweeted after her performance:

The public didn't have quite the same reaction. Unlike many performances at the VMAs that have "shocked audiences," the public and celebrity reaction has been pretty negative. Here's a small handful of the reaction on Twitter last night.

 

 

 

 

Just to put things in further perspective, TheBlaze's latest addition to the digital team may have summed up what happened on stage best when he said:

 

We did our homework over the weekend; we did the research so we can tell you what is likely coming from Senate Democrats regarding President Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Amy Coney Barrett. Based on our research and the anonymous people who have already come forward to talk about Coney Barrett's youth, these are the main shocking things you can expect Senate Democrats to seize on during the confirmation process…

A man has come forward under the banner of "#MenToo," to say that in second grade, Amy Coney Barrett and her best friend at the time, cornered him at a birthday party at Chuck-E-Cheese and "injected him with a full dose of cooties." Which, if true, would obviously be disqualifying for serving on the highest court in the land.

Then there's a woman who says when she was nine-years-old, she lived on the same street as Amy Coney Barrett. She alleges that Coney-Barrett borrowed her VHS tape of Herbie Goes Bananas and did not return it for at least six months. And then when she did finally get the tape back, the woman says Coney Barrett did not even bother to rewind it. The FBI has interviewed at least two witnesses so far who say the tape was indeed not rewound and that it was very upsetting to the owner of the tape. Again, if true, this is troubling – clearly not the kind of integrity you want to see in a Supreme Court justice.

Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it.

The same neighbor also dropped a bombshell allegation about the drinking problem of Amy Coney Barrett and her closest friends. Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it. The neighbor says she "frequently" witnessed Coney-Barrett and her friends chugging entire cartons of milk – often Whole Milk, sometimes Chocolate Milk, occasionally both at the same time through a funnel.

Unfortunately, shooting-up cooties, injurious rewinding, and potential calcium-abuse are not even the worst of it.

A third person has now come forward, another man, and this is just reprehensible, it's hard to even fathom. But he alleges that in fourth grade, when they were around ten-years-old, Amy Coney Barrett and a group of "four or five of her friends" gang-GRAPED him on the playground during recess. He alleges the group of friends snuck uneaten grapes out of the cafeteria and gang-GRAPED him repeatedly in broad daylight. In other words, and I hate to have to spell this out because it's kind of graphic, but the group led by ten-year-old Amy Coney Barrett pelted this poor defenseless boy with whole grapes. He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

Obviously, even if just one of these allegations is half-true, no Senator with a conscience could possibly vote to confirm Coney Barrett. When there is a clear pattern of destructive childhood behavior, it always continues into adulthood. Because people do not change. Ever.

Fortunately, for the sake of the Republic, Democrats plan to subpoena Coney Barrett's childhood diary, to see what, if any, insights it may provide into her calcium habits, as well as her abuse of illicit cooties and the gang-GRAPING incident.

We will keep you posted on the latest, but for now, it looks like Democrats will find plenty in the reckless pre-teen life of Amy Coney Barrett to cast doubt on her nomination. And if not, they can always fall back on her deranged preference for letting babies be born.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck discussed the recent news that a primary source for the Steele Dossier — the document on which much of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was based — had been investigated by the FBI for contacts with suspected Russian spies. Glenn also shared several previously unpublished texts and emails from FBI agents have recently been released.

According to a letter sent by Attorney General William Barr to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, the FBI knew early on that the research compiled by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele relied on a "Primary Sub-source" that had been "the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his or her contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers" — but still used it to obtain warrants to spy on former Trump campaign-aide Carter Page.

But, it gets even worse. Now, new leaked texts and communications from FBI agents within the department at the time of the entire Russian collusion effort were disclosed in federal court filings on Thursday. According to the court documents, FBI agents purchased "professional liability insurance" to protect themselves in January 2017, just weeks before Donald Trump was inaugurated president, because they were concerned about the agency's potentially illegal activity during the Russia collusion investigation.

"Trump was right," one FBI employee wrote in response to then-President-elect Trump's Jan 3, 2017 tweet which read: "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"

Chief researcher Jason Buttrill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss an "explosive" new report released Wednesday by Senate Republicans on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Among other serious allegations, the 87-page report claims that "Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," and the richest woman in Russia.

"The transactions discussed [in the report] are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family," the report stated.

Jason suggested the Senate's findings provide additional evidence to back allegations of a money-laundering scheme, which Glenn detailed in a four-part series about Biden's shady connections to Ukraine. Learn more on this here.

"Laundered money is very hard to track to its finality," Jason explained. "I'm sure the Biden camp is really hoping that it just looks suspicious, but [investigators] don't ever find the eventual end point. But, if they do – and it's possible they already have – this is going to be explosive, very explosive."

Revolutions rarely happen overnight. The Left started laying the groundwork for November 3, 2020, the moment Hillary Clinton had to concede the 2016 election to Donald Trump. It was always solely about getting rid of President Trump — and there's a playbook for that.

Last week, Glenn Beck showed you the "Seven Pillars of Color Revolution" written by a former U.S. diplomat, which are the conditions that must be in place for a successful Eastern European-style "Color Revolution." The left seems to be pushing for a Color Revolution this election because they are using the exact same playbook.

In part two of this series, Glenn peels back the layers on the first four of these Color Revolution pillars to show you how they work and what the end goal is. And he reveals one of the architects of the playbook – a Color Revolution specialist, former ambassador, and former Obama administration official who is one of the key masterminds of this revolution.

Joining Glenn is political campaign veteran and BlazeTV host Steve Deace who says the polls that claim Biden is leading the race "are trash." We're being set up to believe that if Trump wins in spite of the polls, it must be an invalid election.
