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.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
