Glenn grills CT Attorney General


Watch Glenn Beck weeknights at 5pm ET on the Fox News Channel

GLENN: So here's Richard Blumenthal last night on the program. I started with AIG gave Chris Dodd all kinds of money. AIG executives said, hey, we've got to give him, because he's probably going to be the head of the banking committee and he's very powerful, so give, give, give. And they all gave. And I wondered if Richard Blumenthal was going to go after another resident in his state that took money from out of state. You know, not just the AIG executives but Christopher Dodd. And here's what happened.

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

GLENN: Are you going to demand that Chris Dodd returns this money?

BLUMENTHAL: Well, Chris Dodd is returning the money on his own. I think he probably regrets having taken it.

GLENN: Right. If he didn't, would you demand it? If he didn't, I mean

BLUMENTHAL: I would ask him to do it. I think it's appropriate that he do it.

GLENN: Right.

BLUMENTHAL: The other question is why did congress approve all of these bonuses, which the entire congress did, not just one senator.

GLENN: Sure.

BLUMENTHAL: And why did the Federal Reserve

GLENN: Are you asking for

BLUMENTHAL: Why isn't it taking action.

GLENN: Are you going after Chris Dodd for writing that in?

BLUMENTHAL: I have asked that the Federal Reserve block these bonuses which I think

GLENN: Stop for a second.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

GLENN: You must see this. Can we post this or put this in the newsletter today? You have to see this video because this is where he starts to look like a deer in the headlights. Did you see it last night, Stu?

STU: Yes, I did.

GLENN: Okay. When I asked him, did you ask, he knew, uh oh, uh oh, and he paused. So when you're hearing the pauses, just put the big lights, you know, the big headlight eyes in there like... every time you hear a pause, just have that face in your mind like, "Oh, crap." So go ahead. I asked him about Chris Dodd and if he was going to go after. Go ahead.

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

GLENN: I'm asking you about congress. I'm asking you about Chris Dodd because he lives in the great state of Connecticut. Are you going after him?

BLUMENTHAL: We don't have the power to investigate, nor does any attorney general, a federal official.

GLENN: Well, nobody's he's a resident in your state.

BLUMENTHAL: That's an issue for the congress.

GLENN: Wait a minute. He is a resident in your state.

BLUMENTHAL: He is a resident in the state but he is a federal official.

GLENN: Oh.

BLUMENTHAL: And no attorney general has the jurisdiction.

GLENN: Because it's in Washington, you can do anything about it. Kind of like if there's an AIG contract in New York, you really don't have any place?

BLUMENTHAL: Well, the AIG bonuses were paid in Connecticut and that's why we have demanded that they be repaid.

GLENN: Stop for a second. Stop for a second.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

GLENN: Now, listen to what he's saying. What he's saying is, I can't go after Christopher Dodd and ask him, even though he took money from AIG. It didn't go to Washington. It went to Chris Dodd's headquarters in Connecticut. So the money crossed state lines and came into Connecticut. He can't, he can't go after him because he doesn't have jurisdiction. He can't do anything on a federal, on a federal case against a federal, you know, representative, okay? He can't do it. He doesn't have jurisdiction. He would like to, but he can't.

Okay. When I say about the AIG, just like the AIG, "Well, no, that was paid in Connecticut." No. The checks were issued in New York. The contract is New York, but the money came across state lines, kind of like the AIG money. In fact, it's coming from the same source. Isn't that weird? It's coming from the same source and coming across state lines, but you don't have jurisdiction there but you somehow or another do? What is the law that applies here to one and not the other?

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

GLENN: Now, the one thing I was going through the interviews with you and nobody's asked this question and I'm just dying to know and I know you'll have the answer. What law did the AIG executives break when they took those bonuses that were mandated by a legal contract?

BLUMENTHAL: The AIG executives did not themselves break a contract.

GLENN: So then why were you going after them?

BLUMENTHAL: Well, we're not going after them.

GLENN: You were.

BLUMENTHAL: Going after the bonuses.

GLENN: It's their bonuses.

BLUMENTHAL: We were going after the

GLENN: No, their bonuses.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

GLENN: What he's trying to do now is, we weren't going after people, we were going after the money, we were going after the bonuses. Oh, I'm sorry, did you yell at the check? "Don't cash yourself!" Is that what you were doing? You weren't yelling at the checks.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: Who had the bonus? The people did. No, we weren't going after the people; we were going after the bonuses. "You're obscene, you little dirty $165,000 check! You should be ashamed of yourself!" By the way, you who are holding the check, I love you. You're spot on. "You're a dirt bag, you little piece of paper! Look! Look at the way you're dressed, you little check!" Yeah, yeah, that's exactly what he was doing.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: So he's not going after the people. He's going after the bonuses.

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

GLENN: They are their bonuses. They earned that money. What right, what law did they break that gave you the ability in Connecticut to go after those bonuses?

BLUMENTHAL: Well, let's take it one step at a time. The money they received came from us, the taxpayers.

GLENN: Oh, I know how this works. I'm asking you, sir. You're the attorney general. I'm asking you for the law that they broke that gave you the ability. Are you not the defender of the law in Connecticut?

BLUMENTHAL: The law that they broke

GLENN: Yes.

BLUMENTHAL: is the law that requires that they serve the public interests, that bonuses that they

GLENN: What law is that? Wait, wait, what law is that, sir? You're the chief law enforcement officer. What law say that again? I don't recognize that law. It sounds like a good policy. It sounds like a good rule of thumb but I'm not sure I recognize that law. Could you give that to me again?

BLUMENTHAL: Well, you know, again these funds belong to us, the taxpayer.

GLENN: No, no, sir, look, you know what you've done? You know what you've done? You have you are an insult to George Washington, sir. George Washington made it very clear that we are a respecter of laws, not of men. For your own political gain you have decided to go after these people at AIG because it is a popular thing. And while I may agree with you that it is obscene, I would like to know, sir, not what's right as a rule of thumb, not what makes us feel good. You, sir, are to protect people and to stand for the law in Connecticut. So again I ask you, sir, what law gave you the right to go after them, what law did they break?

BLUMENTHAL: Well, I think you're wrong in the basic premise. We're not going after any individual. We're asking the United States

GLENN: You as the attorney general

BLUMENTHAL: Let me finish. You have to let me finish if you want to know what law I'm talking about. We're asking the United States of America, our federal government to ask that this money be returned or pursue it because they were undeserving of it. Now, I'm not enforcing the law

GLENN: They are undeserving of it?

BLUMENTHAL: against them. They are not deserving this money.

GLENN: What right do you have to say the people that worked for $1 a year

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

GLENN: How dare you. This just makes my blood boil. How dare you. There is a contract. There is a contract. Just as I have a contract with my mortgage company and I am required by law. And if I don't honor my contract with my mortgage company, these weasels will send the sheriff out to kick me and my family out of the house. "Well, they didn't deserve it. These banking people, they didn't deserve to have my mortgage. They aren't very good. Look how much trouble they're in." No, I have a contract and so I honor that contract because if we don't honor the contracts, then all of society breaks down. They didn't deserve it. I'm sorry. It's in the contract.

Most of these people were working and this didn't come out in the press. Most of these people were working for $1 a year. They stayed on because they were begged by the government, "Please help us. Please help us. We don't even understand how to unwind these things. Please help us." The dirtbags that caused it, most of them are gone. For some reason or another we're not seeing anybody grabbing them. Nobody in the media, nobody in congress. They're busy talking to the executives, Liddy, who was their pick! They are busy talking to him who's also working for a dollar so they can accuse the other people they begged to stay on who were also working for a dollar. And all they said was could we please just get our pay in bonuses?

Now, people don't understand bonuses on Wall Street. Neither do I. I get it; fine. But most people, because of what congress did in the 1990s with Bill Clinton and said these salaries are too high, what they did was make everybody stop making big salaries. So they make small salaries and then they get paid in bonuses at the end of the year. I've never lived in a place where when I bought my house, I live because of New York and Connecticut, it's all banking. It's all financial. It's all of this stuff. And when I went to get my loan for my house, they said, how would you like your payments. And I said, as small as possible. And they said, no, how would you like them structured; when do you want to pay them. And I said, oh, I don't know, honey. On the 16th? When do you think? And I said, what are our options here? Because he looked at me like I was a foreign life form. And he said, well, a lot of people pay it once a year. I said, what? He said, yeah, a lot of people, because their pay structure, they make a very small salary during the week or during the year and then they make all of their money at the end of the year and so they get one lump sum payment at the end of the year. I said, you've got to be kidding me. He said, no. It's a different world.

So you may look at $160,000 and say that's an outrage. Well, $160,000 if you're making a dollar the rest of the year doesn't even qualify for being rich under Barack Obama! You're not even in the millionaire tax which starts at 300 grand, which isn't a millionaire. Just like to point that out! Drives me crazy the duplicity of these people.

We did our homework over the weekend; we did the research so we can tell you what is likely coming from Senate Democrats regarding President Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Amy Coney Barrett. Based on our research and the anonymous people who have already come forward to talk about Coney Barrett's youth, these are the main shocking things you can expect Senate Democrats to seize on during the confirmation process…

A man has come forward under the banner of "#MenToo," to say that in second grade, Amy Coney Barrett and her best friend at the time, cornered him at a birthday party at Chuck-E-Cheese and "injected him with a full dose of cooties." Which, if true, would obviously be disqualifying for serving on the highest court in the land.

Then there's a woman who says when she was nine-years-old, she lived on the same street as Amy Coney Barrett. She alleges that Coney-Barrett borrowed her VHS tape of Herbie Goes Bananas and did not return it for at least six months. And then when she did finally get the tape back, the woman says Coney Barrett did not even bother to rewind it. The FBI has interviewed at least two witnesses so far who say the tape was indeed not rewound and that it was very upsetting to the owner of the tape. Again, if true, this is troubling – clearly not the kind of integrity you want to see in a Supreme Court justice.

Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it.

The same neighbor also dropped a bombshell allegation about the drinking problem of Amy Coney Barrett and her closest friends. Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it. The neighbor says she "frequently" witnessed Coney-Barrett and her friends chugging entire cartons of milk – often Whole Milk, sometimes Chocolate Milk, occasionally both at the same time through a funnel.

Unfortunately, shooting-up cooties, injurious rewinding, and potential calcium-abuse are not even the worst of it.

A third person has now come forward, another man, and this is just reprehensible, it's hard to even fathom. But he alleges that in fourth grade, when they were around ten-years-old, Amy Coney Barrett and a group of "four or five of her friends" gang-GRAPED him on the playground during recess. He alleges the group of friends snuck uneaten grapes out of the cafeteria and gang-GRAPED him repeatedly in broad daylight. In other words, and I hate to have to spell this out because it's kind of graphic, but the group led by ten-year-old Amy Coney Barrett pelted this poor defenseless boy with whole grapes. He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

Obviously, even if just one of these allegations is half-true, no Senator with a conscience could possibly vote to confirm Coney Barrett. When there is a clear pattern of destructive childhood behavior, it always continues into adulthood. Because people do not change. Ever.

Fortunately, for the sake of the Republic, Democrats plan to subpoena Coney Barrett's childhood diary, to see what, if any, insights it may provide into her calcium habits, as well as her abuse of illicit cooties and the gang-GRAPING incident.

We will keep you posted on the latest, but for now, it looks like Democrats will find plenty in the reckless pre-teen life of Amy Coney Barrett to cast doubt on her nomination. And if not, they can always fall back on her deranged preference for letting babies be born.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck discussed the recent news that a primary source for the Steele Dossier — the document on which much of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was based — had been investigated by the FBI for contacts with suspected Russian spies. Glenn also shared several previously unpublished texts and emails from FBI agents have recently been released.

According to a letter sent by Attorney General William Barr to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, the FBI knew early on that the research compiled by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele relied on a "Primary Sub-source" that had been "the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his or her contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers" — but still used it to obtain warrants to spy on former Trump campaign-aide Carter Page.

But, it gets even worse. Now, new leaked texts and communications from FBI agents within the department at the time of the entire Russian collusion effort were disclosed in federal court filings on Thursday. According to the court documents, FBI agents purchased "professional liability insurance" to protect themselves in January 2017, just weeks before Donald Trump was inaugurated president, because they were concerned about the agency's potentially illegal activity during the Russia collusion investigation.

"Trump was right," one FBI employee wrote in response to then-President-elect Trump's Jan 3, 2017 tweet which read: "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"

Chief researcher Jason Buttrill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss an "explosive" new report released Wednesday by Senate Republicans on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Among other serious allegations, the 87-page report claims that "Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," and the richest woman in Russia.

"The transactions discussed [in the report] are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family," the report stated.

Jason suggested the Senate's findings provide additional evidence to back allegations of a money-laundering scheme, which Glenn detailed in a four-part series about Biden's shady connections to Ukraine. Learn more on this here.

"Laundered money is very hard to track to its finality," Jason explained. "I'm sure the Biden camp is really hoping that it just looks suspicious, but [investigators] don't ever find the eventual end point. But, if they do – and it's possible they already have – this is going to be explosive, very explosive."

Revolutions rarely happen overnight. The Left started laying the groundwork for November 3, 2020, the moment Hillary Clinton had to concede the 2016 election to Donald Trump. It was always solely about getting rid of President Trump — and there's a playbook for that.

Last week, Glenn Beck showed you the "Seven Pillars of Color Revolution" written by a former U.S. diplomat, which are the conditions that must be in place for a successful Eastern European-style "Color Revolution." The left seems to be pushing for a Color Revolution this election because they are using the exact same playbook.

In part two of this series, Glenn peels back the layers on the first four of these Color Revolution pillars to show you how they work and what the end goal is. And he reveals one of the architects of the playbook – a Color Revolution specialist, former ambassador, and former Obama administration official who is one of the key masterminds of this revolution.

Joining Glenn is political campaign veteran and BlazeTV host Steve Deace who says the polls that claim Biden is leading the race "are trash." We're being set up to believe that if Trump wins in spite of the polls, it must be an invalid election.
