FBI raid the home of Subway’s iconic spokesman Jared

Remember Jared? For years, Jared Fogle served as the spokesperson for Subway sandwiches and acting as a symbol for the chain’s weight loss message. But two months after a business partner was arrested on charges of child pornography, his relationship with the company that made him famous looks to be coming to an end. On Tuesday, the FBI raided his house as part of the investigation and Subway suspended their relationship.

The AP reports (via TheBlaze):

FBI agents and Indiana State Police raided the home of Subway restaurant spokesman Jared Fogle on Tuesday, removing electronics from the property and searching the house with a police dog, two months after the then-executive director of Fogle’s foundation was arrested on child pornography charges.

Stu and Pat discussed the story on radio Tuesday:

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it may contain errors:

PAT: 877-727-BECK. It's Pat and Stu. We were talking about the Jared situation. Yesterday Jeffy and I were in the office talking about this. And Subway was kind of sticking by him. Or at least so far they said they were closely monitoring it. And I said to Jeffy, you know what that means, that means we'll stand right behind him until we get a couple of bad Facebook posts and then we're going to fire his ass.

STU: Yep.

PAT: Yesterday they came out with this statement that says essentially that they've fired him.

JEFFY: I mean, it was yesterday afternoon. It was amazing. Not two hours.

STU: Let me see if I have the quote here. But it was basically -- oh, here it is. Subway restaurant chain says it is ending its relationship.

PAT: Ending their relationship.

STU: Ending its relationship with spokesman Fogle amid investigation. They're not saying -- they're not making any specific claims. This is bigger than just Jared Fogle, to broaden it just a second here. When companies get headlines with your name, their product, and the words "child porn" in them, you won't be employed there very long.

PAT: Not good. Yeah, it doesn't mean he's guilty. It doesn't mean he's not. But it doesn't mean he is.

STU: All it is, you're right. Lots of Facebook posts. Lots of people associating delicious sandwiches with child porn, and that's not what they want.

PAT: Yep. No, they wanted to associate it with weight loss.

STU: Weight loss. Tasty goodness. Maybe inexpensive lunch. Not child porn. Less child porn, more tastiness. That's kind of their policy. And, you know, that's not a battle you can win anymore. I mean, we've seen this over and over and over again with people making accusations about things. And sometimes they turn out to be true. Sometimes they turn out to be complete nonsense. But it doesn't matter. And when you're on the corporate side of these things. You're looking at this information coming in and saying, look, Jared has done a good job for us for a long time. But if we made the decision tomorrow to say, you know what, we're not going to do the Jared thing anymore, it's old and it's done. Would that be a big difference to our business? Maybe a little. Probably not. Why bother? Why bother?

PAT: I doubt it. I think that's kind of run its course.

STU: It's been, what, 15 years?

PAT: Yeah. I'm amazed they held on to him that long.

STU: Your mic is not on there, Jeffy.

JEFFY: That's why they were shocked about the news and believe it's related to a prior investigation of a former Jared Foundation employee. We're very concerned, and we'll be monitoring the situation closely.

PAT: Yeah, that's --

STU: And what time was that yesterday? It did not take long.

JEFFY: It did not. Hours. Hours.

PAT: Those statements happened in the same day. It's amazing. Amazing.

STU: It's an interesting culture. Obviously, if he -- we don't know obviously, it's all allegations. But if he did this, there's no bowel of hell that I want him to be. There's no bowel too deep in hell that I want him to be in. This is -- who has any -- any tolerance for this sort of nonsense?

We talked about this with the guy -- I think we talked about it on Pat & Stu maybe a week or two ago with the Australian reporter on the Australian "60 Minutes" who was talking to this guy who started a child porn ring to the extent that he was taking on demand submissions. Like, hey, what do you want done on video? Basically the worst person on earth. And he's sitting there and he's talking to this reporter and she at some point asks a fairly logical question. She did a great job in the interview. And she said, what if -- did you ever do this to one of your kids? And he's like, oh, of course not! I -- I can't believe you would ask that question! He gets all indignant. Now, he's admitted to doing the child porn essentially.

PAT: Up to and including killing one of them.

STU: But when it comes to his own children, there's some weird line of, how dare you even ask me! And it's -- these people -- to state the incredibly obvious, they're so horribly demented and so twisted that even an allegation in that realm, you don't want your tuna sub to be associated with it. And you can understand from a corporate decision. What are you going to do? The best-case scenario, he hired a child porn guy to run his charity. That's not a good thing either. It doesn't exactly work to your judgment at all. And it's not exactly speaking well of your judgment.

PAT: No. No. It's probably not. I mean, you don't know though what everybody is doing in their private life.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
