Glenn interviews former gang leader, drug dealer and pimp

Last night on TV, Glenn interviewed two awful people. Actually, they used to be awful people but have since had pivot points and turned their lives completely around. These two men went from dealing drugs, gang violence, abusing women as pimps -- to upstanding, amazing men. How did they do it?

Well, it all starts with a pivot point. A moment in life where you decide to turn things around, to go from the darkness to the light.

"We have to find our first pivot point or a next pivot point.  It’s really important, and believe me, the longer you deny it, the heavier your pivot point will be," Glenn said.

"I was just sitting in church a couple weeks ago, and I’m like I’m making the same mistakes with my younger children that I made with my older children.  Help me.  And then I’m starting to recount all the things that I’ve done wrong, and that’s what bogs us down.  You’re like I can’t get there from here.  Where I’m at, I can’t get to where you want me to be."

"That’s a lie, and I’m going to show you tonight.  I’m going to demonstrate.  I’m going to bring a couple of people on who will show you that if they got from where they were to where they are now, you certainly can do it.  I certainly can do it.  You’re going to meet two of the worst people on the planet," Glenn said.

After interviewing Chef Jesse Schenker, Glenn brought out John Turnipseed, a former gang leader, a drug dealer, and pimp. What was his pivot point?

"We would rob just about anything," John said of his criminal past. "Nursing homes were popular because they would have high levels of very strong drugs in them and family heirlooms, you know, jewelry and things that, you know, the nursing home residents would put up.  You know, we had no conscience about where we got money from."

"Wow.  So, what was your low?  What was your pivot point?  What was the lowest point for you?" Glenn asked.

"There was a couple of them.  One was my first prostitute, my wife, ran off with another pimp, and I had a three-year-old son, and he killed my son, beat him to death," John said. "I was in jail, nothing I could do about it, didn’t know what I ever could have done about it.  And another time I was involved with a robbery that went terribly wrong, and someone lost their life in it.  So those were very low points for me.  You know, those are the two things that I have a hard time wrestling with."

"Tell me the moment that you were on the ground where you’re like that’s it, I can’t do this anymore," Glenn pressed.

"That happened when I was 40 years of age.  I’m 60 now.  A news reporter was outside of the place that I found employment so that my probation officer wouldn’t put me back in prison, and I became a teacher.  And he had found out about that I was working there and who I was, and I had eight felonies at the time and just an awful human being," he said.  " He was going to expose me.  He did expose me to the school and everything.  And that’s that moment.  That point in time for the first time in my life I actually felt ashamed. Got on the floor and started crying, barricaded myself in an office, wouldn’t come out, wouldn’t face them, didn’t know what to do, just started crying and crying.  I cried and cried."

So what did he do?

"My grandmother had told me a long time ago, and I had lost faith in it when I was like six or seven years old that if I ever got into a place and ever was in so much trouble I didn’t know what to do to call out to Jesus.  And I didn’t have anything else to do.  Suicide was the only other option I had, but I didn’t have anything to do it with.  And that’s what I remembered, and that’s what I did."

"That was 20 years ago, 21 years ago, and I’m helping people now.  I have not committed a crime since then.  I’m a minister.  I’m proud of that.  My grandmother wanted me to be one, and I became one.  But I help men a lot like myself.  I go out and talk to prostitutes and pimps about changing their life, and a lot of them have changed their life," John continued.

"I go out and talk to kids that have gotten in trouble for the first time. That’s my favorite type of work is to find kids that are on the edge and start working with them. I’m working with about eight young men right now, and you know, it takes a lot of energy, but it’s well worth it to see those young men start to turn their life around before they get to the point that I was at."

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.
