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.

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
