What Won't End up in Hillary Clinton's 'Burn Bag'?

Filling in while Glenn was on vacation, Doc Thompson and Skip Lacombe reflected on how Hillary Clinton has gotten away with scandal after scandal on The Glenn Beck Program Tuesday.

Inexplicably, some of Clinton's schedules were included among the various documents she caused to be destroyed. Why, the co-hosts wondered, would the schedule of the Secretary of State ever need to be private (save a couple of extreme examples)?

Listen to the segment or read the transcript below.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors.

DOC: What does Hillary Clinton have to do to actually get fired? For the people to say, we've had enough of your nonsense. To get arrested. What does she have to do?

I mean, you know all the scandals, the alleged scandal, the conspiracy theories regarding the Clintons. There's plenty of things there that you'd go, okay, that could be something that you could potentially go to jail for.

But forget those. Skip, think about the obvious things that they have done.

What does she have to do to get arrested?

SKIP: I don't at this point. For some reason, it seems like the Clintons in particular seem to have this pass in terms of being able to do whatever they want. And their big key, just wait it out. Don't even talk about it. Don't mention it. Any questions about it, just wait it out. Deflect and it'll eventually just pass. People forget. People have such a short attention span and memory these days, as long as you can get through those first couple of days, weeks, months of the scandal, you're fine.

DOC: What does Hillary have to do to get arrested now? Seriously. She meets with the FBI for three hours over the weekend, and they talked to her about the email scandal. Right? I mean, that's how this rolls out. And then you have people like Sherrod Brown the dirtbag senator from Ohio and Cory Booker the dirtbag Senator from New Jersey saying she's not going to be arrested. Nothing to see here. There's no problem here. In all first of all, how do they know? Is there just them trying to influence the public and public opinion and the FBI?

SKIP: Yeah.

DOC: Or do they know something or saying, nope, not going to be arrested.

SKIP: At this point I think they're trying to influence public opinion. At the end of the day, regardless of where you stand on this scandal, yes she should be arrested or no, she shouldn't, the FBI is actually -- and the Department of Justice is investigating. So there is a there, there, no matter how you want to look at the scandal or how little you want to put towards the scandal, there is a there, there. Otherwise they wouldn't be investigating. This is Obama's Justice Department, the FBI, there has to be something there for them to at least pick up a finger and start.

DOC: So Huma apparently was deposed in connection with the Freedom of Information Act request about Hillary's emails and whatever, but it wasn't the FBI. It was because of a Freedom of Information Act request. And in this, she said that Hillary destroyed at least some of her schedules. She put them in the burn bag. Now, the burn bag is the official area or box or bag that they collect things that have to be destroyed. Sensitive information that would be destroyed.

And she said she was directed on numerous occasions to put Hillary's schedule in the burn bag.

I don't want anyone to know where she was at that time and on that day! And that's what Hillary is saying. I don't want anybody to know what I was doing. Why would your schedule, save a couple of extreme examples, ever be private as Secretary of State?

I get ahead of time if you're going on flying into a dangerous area, and I can't tell people that I'm going to be there because it could be -- you know, they could plan some sort of threat against me.

SKIP: If you that's more about like schedules in the future as opposed to historic documents of what had happened.

DOC: Right.

SKIP: It's not a security issue to find out that she was in Somalia or whatever.

DOC: Not that I agree with it, but when the President had his people negotiating with Iran for the Iran deal, remember, that was going on for a couple of years and we didn't know about it, which I think is wrong, because in order for you and I to be good citizens and be active in our government, we have to have this information.

But having said that, you could even make an argument that said, well, I don't want people to know that I was meeting with Iran yet. Because we're still working on the deal. So I'll delay that schedule for six months, then you can see what I was up to.

That's not what happened.

Hillary Clinton said, I direct you to burn my schedule, to destroy any records of where I was and what I was doing at certain times.

Why, I ask you, would you ever have to do that?

I can come up with only one reason: Because you don't want people to know what you were doing because you were doing something improper.

Is there any other reason? Folks, come on! Democrat, Republican, progressive, conservative, Libertarian, is there any other reason? And I challenge you, Democrats today, to stand up and start calling her out on this.

This is wrong. And if you do not, you are part of the problem. Not because you vote for Democrats, not because you are progressive but because you're not holding accountable people that are running this government. If you don't do it, you are a bigger problem that know Hillary Clinton. What does she have to do to get fired?

Here's what Huma said. This is the official testimony she gave.

If there was a schedule that was created that was her, Secretary of State daily schedule, and a copy of that was put in the burn bag, that, that -- I'm sorry.

She said it was put in the burn bag. That's how the whole thing lays out.

She said, that it was put in the bag that certainly happened on -- on more than one occasion.

SKIP: Again, if you're really trying to even be a devil's advocate here and explain some sort of a reason why this would be, I can't think of a legitimate reason why you would do that.

Even specific too, the concept of a burn bag, I stupidly didn't even realize that there are documents that are on a regular basis burned.

DOC: Destroyed.

SKIP: I understand shredding and whatnot. But there is a barrel standing out back with a fire?

DOC: I don't know how they destroyed it nowadays but at one point they burned it. It's referred to historically as the burn bag, the area we collect stuff that's going to be destroyed. Maybe. Maybe so. Why would her schedule be a part of it? Let me put another way for you. Hillary Clinton, do you remember her excuse for having the -- the security on the server? Her own server?

SKIP: It was easier for her, more simple.

DOC: Easier, whatever. With no regard to the law, history, or national security. Because that was an unsecure server. It was not done from the government. Right? Hillary put it up herself. It was unsecure. Right?

SKIP: Yeah.

DOC: Okay. So she's saying what? That her information, her schedule, is of such a national security issue that she has to destroy it, yet she had her own server which was unsecure.

How do you have both of those? They don't add up. It's not consistent.

The only reasonable explanation for both of those things, to say I want my own private server which is not secure, I'm not concerned with security, and to say I want my schedule burned, can be only one thing. She was hiding something improper, illegal, immoral, some sort of troubling behavior.

SKIP: Something she didn't want someone else to know.

DOC: Right. That's the only reason you have those two things. See, those things are inconsistent with each other. If you're going to cling to national security as a reason you have your schedule destroyed, then why did you have your own private server?

If your own private server is so -- if you're so cavalier about it, you're not worried about, you know, secure information on it or whatever, and we know now secure information was, you know, in those emails and via her private server, then why would you destroy your schedule after the fact for national security?

The only thing you can cling to about having your schedule destroyed is for national security. And even that is pretty low. But that goes all out the wind when you have your own private server. These things do not add up.

So I ask, what does it take for Hillary Clinton to be arrested? What does it take for the American people to stand up and say, I've had enough, you are fired, we are done here? What does it take?

If Hillary Clinton is able to navigate this latest scandal and not be arrested, navigate and actually become President of the United States, that is the indicator we have completely lost control. That it's done. And then it's just a matter of ride it out until the end until the whole thing collapses around us. You cannot have that level of corruption go for several years and this is just the latest. This doesn't account for everybody else that she's been involved in over the years.

We've lost it at that point.

Here are 3 ways the 'Inflation Reduction Act' WILL impact you (Hint: NOT by reducing inflation)

The Senate has passed President Joe Biden's $740 billion "Inflation Reduction Act" over the weekend, but the only way this deceptively-named bill will reduce inflation is by crushing your buying power. The massive spending bill includes the largest climate spending package ever passed and will allocate a whopping $80 billion to make the IRS bigger than the Pentagon, State Department, FBI, and Border Patrol combined. And just wait until you see how the bill will affect our farmers.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck broke down three rather "terrifying" components of the 755-page bill and how they will impact you.

CNN’s Brian Stelter had a shocking moment of clarity Sunday when he acknowledged what everyone but the liberal media has known since before the 2020 presidential election: President Joe Biden's son Hunter has been up to some seriously dubious dealings overseas, and his father was almost certainly involved despite his repeated claims to the contrary.

On "Reliable Sources" Sunday, Stelter spoke with first lady Jill Biden's former press secretary, Michael LaRosa, about whether Biden is likely to seek a second term in 2024.

“I hope he runs, and I know he’s going to run. I think he's planning to run ... I don't see why he wouldn't run,” LaRosa stammered.

"What about his son? What about Hunter?" Stelter cut in. “Hunter [is] under federal investigation, charges could be coming at any time. This is not just a right-wing media story. This is a real problem for the Bidens."

Unluckily for Stelter, "The Hill's" Joe Concha can remember all the way back to the fall of 2020:


On a recent episode of Glenn TV, Glenn Beck discussed the most recent findings in the Hunter Biden laptop scandal. Don't get distracted by the seemingly endless stream of scandalous photos and videos, Glenn warns, it's what's coming out about Hunter's overseas business dealings that should be all over the media, because Joe Biden is involved too.

VOTE: You decide who gets a Badge of Merit (Round 3)

Public domain, via Wikimedia Commons

The Purple Heart in George Washington's time was not given for being wounded. This award went to ordinary soldiers for doing something of merit—something that would find favor in the eyes of God. Washington knew they couldn't win if they weren't on God's side. And if they were on God's side, God would bless them.

I've been looking for people who deserve a George Washington badge of merit. Many of you have submitted nominations. Thank you for the love, respect, and consideration you have shown in doing so.

From your hundreds of nominations, we have narrowed it down to three finalists. Now, it's up to you to decide who gets this honor.

Here are the candidates:

1. Dana, the Mom to Many

Dana and her husband Brian run a nonprofit called Dogwood Ranch in southwest Missouri. According to their website:

Dogwood Ranch was created by family, for family. We believe that everyone deserves the chance to live the life for which they were created. Our mission is simple: to provide support for survivors of trauma as they journey towards wholeness. This includes creating a new heritage for foster children and youth who have been abused and neglected, by providing them with safe and healthy forever families. We are also committed to offering a place of belonging for foster teens through individualized transitional living services. Additionally, we offer specialized support through our equine assisted counseling program, which focuses on bringing restoration to foster youth and other at-risk populations, including our honored military veterans and their families. Through the operation of Dogwood Ranch, our desire is to allow those we serve a new way to experience life, family and true redemption. Everyone deserves a chance to find their way home.

According to her nominator, on top of their work at the ranch, they personally foster young girls and have had "over twenty foster girls they now call family."

Her nominator wrote:

They take the toughest cases that come up. On several occasions, I would reach out to see if she could go out, and she would say she couldn’t because they were on suicide watch that night. Young girls have tried to stab her, have stolen her car, and have come to call her Mom…She is an incredibly hard worker, no-nonsense, and full of life and joy. She is constantly making our community and our world a better place.

2. Francine, the Joyful Servant

Francine, who also goes by “Frannie,” and “Fran,” not only has multiple names, but wears multiple hats. At home, she is the mother of two boys with serious disabilities. At work, she is a caretaker for the elderly, and everywhere she goes, she is a ray of sunshine.

Her nominator entrusted her mother, who has since passed, to Francine's care at a nursing home. She said, whenever Francine was working, she would breathe a sigh of relief. She wrote:

While most of the aides looked at the work as just a paycheck, and some of them were actually cruel to the most needy patients, Fran treated each and every one of them like royalty. She saw each individual as unique and worthy of love and understanding. Every patient adored her, because they knew they were in good hands.

Her nominator wrote that she saw treatment of elderly patients that “made her skin crawl.” There was a woman at the nursing home with severe dementia who had become so antagonistic that other aides, to avoid feeding her by hand, would simply not feed her. When Fran was working, she made sure to sit with her while she ate. She even hosted “dinner parties” with multiple residents to ensure they were fed, and happy.

Her nominator wrote:

When Fran was on shift, people who needed help going to bed never had to wait long. Besides, they didn't mind waiting for FRANNIE. She always did everything with such love and care and class! Then, after a long eight hours (or sometimes a double shift!) she would go home to more of the same routine. And in spite of it all, she did it all with a smile on her face. I've never known anyone like her. She was a godsend to my mother. If it hadn't been for her, and a handful of others, Mom's time at the home would have been unbearable. This woman really does deserve an award.

3. Michael, the Godly Father

Michael was nominated by his three children for modeling how a true man of God lives, loves, and serves his community. After serving as a corpsman in the Vietnam War and then working as an elementary school teacher, his children say he was the “solid, and consistently Godly male role model” in his grandchildren’s life. His children wrote:

My father helped raise his grandkids when my sister was a single mom, even though he had already raised his own kids.

Michael shares the gospel in one-on-one Bible studies with young people who have just gotten out of jail. He raises donations for clothing, food, and blankets for the homeless. He meets weekly with young men for Bible studies, to mentor them, and help them mature into men of God.

Michael has taught true love to his children by the way he treats their mother–his wife of 42 years. They wrote:

He is a solid rock of unwavering love for her, which has had a huge impact on how my brother and I treat our own wives. Mike's steadfast love for our mother has taught us the meaning of loyalty, love, commitment, sacred covenant, compassion, honor, and what a true husband looks like.

Most importantly, they say their father "instilled in us an absolute love for our Creator and compassion for our fellow man. He is our number one role model showing us what a godly man is.”

'Really SCARY': The IRS just spent $700,000 on AMMO — and plans to add 87,000 new 'enforcement' agents

The Democrats' wonderfully named "Inflation Reduction Act," which passed in the Senate on Sunday, includes a massive expansion of the IRS. President Joe Biden wants to hire 80,000 new agents, and of course, this is for totally non-nefarious reasons, like cracking down on all those evil billionaires committing tax fraud.

Financial expert and author of "The War on Small Business" Carol Roth joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain who she believes this expansion will really target.

"The Democrats like to pretend that they are the party of the middle and working class, and the Biden administration has continued to find ways to extract wealth from the middle and working class," Carol began. "We saw it in the American Rescue Plan, where they raised the reporting threshold for any sort of hobby site you might have ... down to $600. Now, and this was part of Build Back Better which we thought was dead but now is just coming back in pieces, and this piece has survived — $80 billion for the IRS. Half of that ... is going to hire 87, 000 agents for 'enforcement,' okay? We don't need 87, 000 agents to go after what was 800 or 900 billionaires ... so, who do you think they're coming after?" she added.

"They're going to come after you," Carol warned. "You should pay your taxes that are due, but that doesn't mean you're not going to get audited, and that doesn't mean you're not going to have to justify every single thing that you do and waste your time and money so they can try and extract a few more dollars from you."

Glenn mentioned that the IRS has recently purchased nearly $700,000 worth of guns and ammo to go along with these 87,000 new "enforcers."

"That is really frightening," Glenn said. "They're not going after the rich ... they're going to go after anyone who disagrees with them. And because it's now public-private partnerships, any business that doesn't agree with them."

"Yeah, this is really really scary," Carol agreed. "And the crazy thing is the number of people who gave feedback and said, 'Well, if you're not a tax cheat, what do you have to worry about?' You've hit the nail on the head, Glenn. The politicization of this is they're going to come after people, they're going to harass you, they're going to tie up your time, they're going to tie up your money, regardless of whether you have followed the rules or not."
