Win lotto, lose husband

GLENN BECK PROGRAM


BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

GLENN: Denise is a woman who went into a convenience store and just got a -- she buys a lotto ticket. The next morning she gets up, she's looking through the newspaper and she sees the lotto numbers. She thinks to herself, it's got to be a misprint, it can't be right. It was right. Number 1, 10, 22, 24, 29, 39, overnight. She won $28.52 million. Next she wanted to jump for joy and say I'm rich, but she was estranged from her husband. They were separated. She takes her lotto ticket and puts it right in the safety deposit box. She puts it in the safety deposit box. On her way home she calls an attorney: Hey, I need a quick divorce. Well, how fast do you need it? Right away. The lawyer calls the husband. "Want a divorce?" Yes. We can do this right away. You want to do it right away? Yes. They get a divorce. And two weeks go by. Two weeks and one day, she goes into the safety deposit box, opens it up, goes up to Tallahassee and she claims her $28 million. She tells the kids, we're rich, kids; mom just won the lottery. They move into a house. $650,000 house, gated community but you got $28 million. $652,000 house isn't all that. She moves the kids into the house; they're great. Two years go by; nothing, not a problem. Until two guys are sitting in a bar and another man is sitting down at a school, down a couple of stools and he's just listening to the two guys talk. The one guy says, did you hear about that woman who screwed her husband out of $28 million? Then the guy says, no, what are you talking about? He says, $28 million. She got a lottery ticket. She put it into the safety deposit box and she divorced her husband. "I love you, best friend I've ever had. I'd never do that if I... (mumbling)." Meanwhile the guy down a couple of schools says, can you tell me this story again? Well, the guy sitting a couple of stools down decides he's going to look into this. He finds the ex-husband. Story's true. And you didn't get a dime? No. Never offered it to you? No. You know you're owed half of that money. "I love you, man." So he takes out a piece of paper and he says, here, I tell you what, I need you to sign this. What is it? You sign it and it means I get 35% of everything you get. Well, that sounds like a deal because I ain't got nothing now." Take the wife to court; he wins. Take the wife to court and he's taking a butt load of money home. She still has a lot of money. Husband's got a lot of money. The guy sitting down, a couple of stools down just listening to the two guys talking in the bar, he's got a butt load of money, too.

Wife hides lottery win, divorces husband quickly


'Case has money, greed, betrayal. All the elements of a soap opera'

Normally I would say, this kind of stinks. The guy -- I mean, she shouldn't have done that. She should have split it with the husband. You don't get a quickly divorce so you don't have to split it with the husband. That's shady. She knew what she was doing. Legally it belongs, half belongs to the husband. Even though that kills me to say it, that's the way it should be. That's the way the law is.

The second part is it kills me that a guy who's just hearing the story gets 35% of it, but here's the worst part of the story. The husband, do you know why he wanted a divorce so quickly? Because he had separated from his wife two weeks after they were divorced, he married his girlfriend -- I'm not kidding you -- her name is Toots. I don't think I'm all for Toots getting the, you know, $14 million. I don't know about you. Is it just me? Stu?

STU: I mean, I think I agree with you morally that she doesn't deserve it and I mean, I don't know if there's a great person in this story but, like, the guy, he's a dirtbag. So I would root against him in every case. But legally, I mean, when you have -- she had the ticket in her possession, it becomes communal property of the marriage. So whether -- I mean, you can't -- that's like she's lying when they get divorced by claiming she doesn't have $28 million. I mean, she really could be charged with that, couldn't she? I'm no lawyer, Glenn.

DAN: She didn't have $28 million.

STU: It's really worth $750,000. You'd have to claim, I would think, some sort of value to that, what the actual value is in the divorce.

GLENN: The great thing is, the great thing is he didn't win a lot of money. She gets $1.4 million every year, lump sum. She's got to pay taxes on that. So under Hillary Clinton she'll get about $14.

STU: Check your rates, Glenn. It's a little less than that.

GLENN: A little less than that?

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: All right. So she's getting it $1.4 million for the next 20 years. She had to pay a lump sum of $300,000 to him and then $57,000 a year for the next 15 years, one for every year of their marriage. So it's pretty much alimony. The guy sitting at the bar gets $19,500 a year. That's $20,000 a year just for sitting and listening to a story in the bar.

STU: Yeah, the only guy who you really like in the store is the guy at the bar because it's just American ingenuity. He tracks the guy down, he files the lawsuit, does all the research, gets all that crap done and then gets a nice big fat commission, or $35,000 and he did no legitimate --

GLENN: I don't think I like him, either.

STU: I like him.

GLENN: That's not earning it.

STU: Yes, it is.

GLENN: No, it's not.

STU: He provided a service to this guy. He got this guy --

GLENN: That's not creation of wealth. That is shifting of wealth.

STU: Stop the crap.

GLENN: That's a lawsuit.

STU: What do you mean stop with lawsuits? This woman lied about how much money she had in a divorce. He deserved the money.

GLENN: Here you go.

STU: She helped facilitate that. That's a transaction that is worth money to the guy and this guy makes money for it.

GLENN: Here's the next. It's transfer of wealth. It's not creating wealth.

STU: Oh, stop it. Oh, stop it. Oh, God, that's just irritating.

DAN: So power brokers shouldn't make any money, these guys that broker these big deals?

STU: No, there's no value there. They didn't create a widget. Oh, no. Oh, God, do we live in a capitalist system. Oh, God. Oh, stop with that stuff. That's a valuable service he provided.

GLENN: I wish you'd stop taking the Lord's name in vain.

STU: Did I?

GLENN: Now here's -- like 600 times. Here's the next thing.

STU: Sorry.

END TRANSCRIPT

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."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.
