No criminal charges for crooked VA execs

The abuse at the Veterans Administration—at the expense of U.S. veterans and taxpayers—knows no bounds. Once again, VA officials have demonstrated how sweet it is to be a government employee.

 

Filling in on The Glenn Beck Program Wednesday, Mike Broomhead gave the back story on two VA bosses that used their positions to block subordinates from taking jobs. The so-called “sweetheart transfers” secured jobs with less responsibility at the same pay rate, along with massive relocation benefits.

 

“There is something in the federal government called PCS [permanent change of station],” Mike explained. “And along with that comes certain benefits.”

 

Those benefits, in many cases, include closing costs if you’re selling or buying a home, relocation expenses, and a per diem for the family during the relocation process. 

 

VA executives Diana Rubens and Kimberly Graves---who were earning annually about $181,000 and $173,000, respectively---took regional jobs intended for subordinates, obtaining more than $400,000 in questionable moving expenses as part of the PCS relocation program.

 

The Justice Department decided to press criminal charges against these two former executives. 

However, the U.S. attorney's office for the District of Columbia has declined a referral from the VA inspector general for criminal prosecution and referred the matter to the VA for any administrative action deemed appropriate. Additionally, Diana Rubens and Kimberly Graves were both demoted in November, but their demotions were rescinded this month after a paperwork mix-up. So, no criminal charges, no demotions, no firings for these egregious actions.

 

“Explain to me how we've promised the veterans in this country that they will receive medical care that they can't get, and the bureaucracy in the VA is so bad that managers can literally strong arm underlings, take hundreds of thousands of dollars in questionable relocation fees?" Mike asked rhetorically. "Not only do they not get prosecuted criminally---they don't lose their jobs, they don't lose pay, and no one is punished.”

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.
