GLENN: Now, the State of Oregon, not exactly known for its ultra pro business environment. I mean, unless you're setting up a Save the Owl store. You have a lot of red tape to go through, you know, the environmental restrictions, the owls, the environmental restrictions. A lot of stuff you have to go through when you're doing business, you know, that can add to your overhead there in Oregon. That's one reason why their unemployment rate is usually higher than the national average. But I guess they like it that way in Oregon. Back in 2002 Oregon passed a law that indexed the minimum wage to inflation. I actually love this law because it proves a point. It gets rid of all the political game for politicians, they can't make any speeches. Every election, you know, they're telling people, "I'm here for you, I'm going to raise minimum wage, vote for me. He hates people who are working on minimum wage." It automatically rises. That way, hey, you don't need the politician anymore. I love it for that reason, and it also proves a point. If politicians actually cared about the minimum wage, everyone, including those in Washington, would do it. But the problem is and to me it's an advantage it highlights what a bad idea the minimum wage is because when tough times come, there's nothing you can do about it. You don't have the opportunity to, you know, just push off a minimum wage hike. It's coming whether you like it or not because you, the voter, said we shouldn't use our brain. We should just let it automatically raise up. We shouldn't think about any other conditions. Well, that's what's happening now in Oregon. Unemployment rate rising more than 1% per month. Oregon had no choice but to hike their already high minimum wage by 45 cents to $8.40 per hour. The effect? Well, Oregon, which usually has an unemployment rate that is 1% higher than the national average now has the second highest unemployment rate in the country, unless you're an owl. They are just behind Michigan. Oregon's latest numbers show unemployment at 12.1%, four points, four points ahead, or behind, however you want to look at it, the national average. When you have a high minimum wage environment and times are normal, sure, you'll fall behind, you know, the rest of the country a little bit, but you can survive it. But when you have a financial meltdown and you're asking business owners to pay far and above the market value for labor, you're just begging for 12% unemployment, or even higher, and it's coming. And it has longer term ramifications as well. If you want to hear your teenager, if you want your teenager to learn how to work and really develop a work ethic, how can they find work ethic when they can't find a job? The national unemployment rate for teenagers is 21.7%. We're not forcing them to do anyone at home and now they can't find a job. Who's going to pay $8.40 per hour for a teenager when you can get a white collar worker to now work under those conditions? There are jobs that Americans just won't do? The height of insanity, the one thing that we should regret ever, ever uttering, when everybody was saying, "Oh, there's jobs that Americans just won't do." Really? We were that arrogant? I wonder how many of those jobs are still not occupied by Americans by choice. How many Americans are passing, when you've got states like California, they are actually the cities are actually having to look into licensing and how to, you know, license hot dog vendors because you have so many white collar workers that are like, "I'm going to go into the hot dog vending business; I've got to feed my family." We are now in the 21st century versions of selling apples or pencils in some parts of the country. But the good thing is when you don't have your teenagers working, you have future workers without a work ethic and then you have even more people who want to vote in minimum wage increases and guaranteed job programs. So you see, socialism really does solve everything.

VOICE: That was even more overwhelming evidence that we are destined to be a bunch of socialist pigs very, very soon on the Glenn Beck program.

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.
