GLENN: Here's the latest ad from the DNC on the Chamber of Commerce.

VOICE: Karl Rove, Ed Gillespie, they're Bush cronies. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is their shield for big business and they're stealing our democracy, spending millions to elect Republicans to do their bidding this Congress. It appears they've even taken secret foreign money to influence our elections. It's incredible

GLENN: It's incredible.

VOICE: from secret foreign money

GLENN: Foreign money.

VOICE: and the Chamber of Commerce to stop stealing our democracy.

PAT: Murder! Murder! Death and mayhem!

GLENN: It really is. It's, like, it's Colonel Mustard. He's in the library with a candle stick.

PAT: Stealing and murdering!

GLENN: It is really amazing. Theblaze.com is leading with one of the stories today, Glenn Beck calls for the largest day of fundraising for Chamber of Commerce. Look. I don't agree with everything on the Chamber of Commerce.

PAT: I don't agree with their murder!

(Laughter.)

GLENN: But do you know what? My father was a member of the Chamber of Commerce. It is they are made up in fact, do you know what? Let me bring on the executive vice president for government affairs, Bruce Josten. Bruce, are you there?

JOSTEN: I am.

GLENN: How are you?

JOSTEN: I'm great. Thank you for having me on today, and thank you for your contribution to the chamber today.

GLENN: You bet.

JOSTEN: You are doing great work. Our friendsoftheuschamber.com website has received in the past hour, Glenn, now, as a result of you, the single highest contribution we've ever received for an entire day and that's just for the first hour.

GLENN: Holy cow. Holy cow.

PAT: That's great.

GLENN: Well, we're not done yet, Bruce. You know, we would like to we would like to help you out. Now, I want to just talk to you a little bit about some things.

JOSTEN: Okay.

GLENN: This is something that just came to me today. I'm so sick and tired of the of Obama admission making you guys into the enemy of the state. First of all, most of your members are companies that are less than 100 employees, right?

JOSTEN: Correct.

GLENN: Can you give me any stats on this?

JOSTEN: Yeah. About 90% of our members have fewer than 100 employees. About 70 plus percent I think it's 73 or 74 percent of our members have fewer than 20 employees. Our membership is basically a reflection of the American economy, which is overwhelmingly dominated, as you well know, by Mom and Pop, Main Street U.S.A. businesses which is where most of the jobs come from in this country.

GLENN: 70% of jobs are created by small business in America. In hard times it's up to 80%. True or false?

JOSTEN: You're right. In fact, it's the newly formed businesses that actually help create a lot of jobs, according to the Calvin Foundation which has been studying this. So, what we've got to do is get people off their heels and moving forward in this country.

GLENN: Now, let me talk to you about

PAT: Murder. What are you stealing? You're receiving contributions from the KGB.

GLENN: Talk to me about all of your foreign donations that are shadowy.

JOSTEN: We have 115 American Chambers of Commerce abroad in 108 foreign countries. Their membership, they're formed by the American subsidiaries of multinational U.S. companies.

GLENN: Oh. Multinational U.S. companies.

JOSTEN: You're right. That's dangerous.

GLENN: Shadowy right there.

JOSTEN: Yeah. They're doing business on the ground, exporting and selling products and much like the 3,000 Chambers of Commerce here in the United States, they're formed to represent, share their interest concerns and problems and have a place for them to get together, try and resolve those issues and make recommendations and, in effect, advocate them to that foreign country. That's No. 1. That compromises around 100 some thousand dollars out of our $200 million budget.

GLENN: How many billions, though?

JOSTEN: I'm sorry?

GLENN: How many billions of dollars are coming from Exxon Mobil

JOSTEN: I wish. Maybe we can get there today. We hope.

GLENN: Yes.

JOSTEN: We also have, by the way, some bilateral business councils U.S. Brazil, U.S. India, U.S. South Korea, on and on. They come and go. Our members ask us interested in a trade. We host that. They determine, by the way, their completely unaffiliated with us, other than we let we provide them accounting support, management support, note taking support. They define their own program of work. They define their own budget. They assess themselves their own dues required to meet their objectives and we host them.

GLENN: Okay. Now

JOSTEN: They get too big and move out of the chamber as independent organizations. Some stay. Not threatening to anybody, but, again, a problem solving council. We're two groups have and they have two meetings a year, one in the United States and one wherever it is abroad, to try and promote trade.

GLENN: That's a bilateral what?

JOSTEN: Business council.

GLENN: Okay. I'm just I want to help George Soros out here. Here's your next DNC ad. They are a part of a bilateral council which sounds like a trilateral

PAT: Commission.

GLENN: commission.

PAT: It does.

GLENN: Which is shadowy and spooky.

STU: It appears.

GLENN: It appears to be, to those who are into the shadow conspiracies and you heard it out of his own mouth. It sounds like trilateral. There you go. I just want to help them out.

Now, let me ask you a couple of tricky questions here because I just made a donation to you or have we made it yet?

JOSTEN: You have.

GLENN: We have?

JOSTEN: You made a significant donation.

GLENN: I've been trying to get online and it's been down, but I guess we Joe's made it. So, here is the

JOSTEN: It's friendsoftheuschamber.com. It's probably getting a little busy as a result of your promotion.

GLENN: What is it? Friends of the

JOSTEN: friendsoftheuschamber.com or smallbusinessnation.com, either one. If people are having trouble on one, they can go to the other site.

GLENN: Okay. Now, here's where we disagree. I disagree with the idea of open borders and everything else. I believe in the rule of law and enforce our own laws. I don't demonize those people who are here. They're people who have come here illegally and they really do want to I mean, if I were a family if I was a dad and I had a family in Mexico, damn right, if I saw America not enforcing their own laws and I could get out of a country that is spiralling out of control and closer and closer to a drug narco state, you bet I would get out of there. So, it's not about them. It's about us. We need to enforce our own laws, while we make the door of our country bigger and easier to bring people in legally so we know who's here.

JOSTEN: I would completely agree with what you just said, which is why we have consistently pointed out the Federal Government has a track record of abject failure here. They are in charge of the border. They are in charge of immigration policy. We have, for a long time, advocated reform of that system. Our borders clearly need to be protected. The safety of our border citizens, our national security are all important, as well as ensuring legitimate trade and travel between people. So, we are on the exact same page.

Now, our members also want a stable and a legal workforce and the uncertainty that surrounds this, in the past year well, actually in the first quarter of this year, 45 states, states, not the Federal Government, introduced nearly 1200 different pieces of legislation over this, again because of the failure of the Federal Government. So, we have a rather unresponsive Visa program. We have to correct our own problems. We can't be the only country in the world that doesn't have secure borders.

PAT: Exactly. So, it sounds like you're saying that I mean, are you are you saying that you support, you know, securing the border first and then working out the rest of it afterward or are you more along the lines of the Democrat proposal, which is this comprehensive immigration reform which really means that it's a path to citizenship, that it does nothing for the border, all of those things?

GLENN: It's the same thing that happened in the 1980's. Fool me once

JOSTEN: The reality is do we want comprehensive immigration reform? Absolutely, in part for the two points he just mentioned, but the reality politically is you're not going to get the comprehensive immigration reform until we address and secure the borders of this country.

GLENN: I don't think I disagree with you on that.

PAT: Only in that the comprehensive reform that we continually hear about is not the reform we're talking about.

GLENN: You're not as long as we have the borders secure, then I'm willing to talk

PAT: Then you talk about it, yeah.

GLENN: I'm willing to talk to you about anything.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: But you've got to shut the water off first.

PAT: Exactly.

GLENN: That doesn't mean you go back to the back of the line

JOSTEN: and now deceased former senator Ted Kennedy to try and approach and result in a piece of legislation that would accomplish those types of objectives. We're going to have to continue to work on it.

GLENN: Okay. Well, I just wanted to get you on the phone. I'm glad that just in the first hour, it's the biggest fundraising day ever. We wanted to make it your biggest of the day. This just came to me about an hour ago and

JOSTEN: We're glad, as well, and again we thank you because with what's taking place, demonizing and vilifying people that have an opposing viewpoint from a President who ran, as you well know, on a platform of changing the tone and hope and change.

GLENN: He's changed it.

JOSTEN: He changed it for the worse at this point.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: And the interesting thing about that is that on the one hand they're demonizing you. Then two days ago he used your organization to try to promote his own agenda.

JOSTEN: Right.

PAT: He used you as an example of something you guys are supporting that it's amazing, the hypocrisy.

GLENN: In the history of the country, because there's something that nobody reports on and, that is, I have four advisors, direct advisors to the President of the United States, four of them, doing four different campaigns to try to boycott and destroy my business. It's never been done before in American history. No one will report on it. You notice you've never read that.

JOSTEN: Right.

GLENN: That's quite a claim to make. If that were not true, you would think you would read: Glenn Beck lies again. I've said that now for over a year on radio, television. Not one word has been printed on that.

JOSTEN: Yeah.

GLENN: It's never happened before in American history. Can you tell me, in the history of the chamber, has there ever been a coordinated attack like this on the chamber ever done by anybody in government like this?

JOSTEN: Nothing like this. Now, we've had some spats and tough times with different administrations, both Republicans and Democrats, yes. I kind of view any administration is going to do something with the business community and the chamber, some things for the business community and some things to it, but never such an avalanche of a continuous broadside attack of misleading inferences and allegations and, by the way, from somebody whose, I believe, president graduated from Harvard Law, taught law, and has turned the principle of innocent until proven guilty on its head. It's now guilty until proven innocent.

GLENN: Can I tell you something? I've never heard anything like it. What was it that Joe Biden said? Do you have that article from Joe Biden, Stu? What was it that Joe Biden said, where he said, Prove to us, prove to us that this isn't happening. Where does that come from?

JOSTEN: He also, a few days ago in a public speech, when defining their accomplishments said, It's too hard to explain.

GLENN: Yeah. (Laughter.) Well, it is hard to explain. I will give you that.

JOSTEN: We would like to debate policy. The ads we have up right now draw a distinction, for example, on the basis of protection and affordable care act which we oppose. We are more than willing to debate anybody on policy grounds, but we are not going to stoop to name calling and outlandish allegations and I think people would like to distract and divert our attention because that's exactly what they are trying to do, divert attention away from their policies. So, I would like to and this organization are going to stay focused on what's important to the American people, which is our economy and their jobs and their livelihoods and their families and turning this thing around.

GLENN: Small businesses America, if you get one thing, get this: Small businesses create 80% of all jobs, not government, not giant corporations, small businesses, people like you saying, I've got an idea, and you hire two people. 80% of all jobs in a recession are created by small business people. The people that are protecting the small business people and I don't agree with them on everything is the Chamber of Commerce. The other thing you need to understand, this government has targeted the chamber unlike anybody that I have seen, except maybe us and FOX News. They are targeting the chamber. I can tell you one thing from experience. If this administration targets you as hard as they have the chamber, it means you're a threat to them and they're you're making a difference.

I put my money where my mouth is. I made a donation today myself. I urge you to do the same. You can find the link at glennbeck.com or you can go to give me the direct link.

JOSTEN: Well, you can go to friendsoftheuschamber.com, uschambersmallbusinessnation.com, or if those two are overloaded, as they have been, my staff just told me they are blocked right now because of your listeners, to simply go to uschamber.com and from there you can link there will be a place for them to click.

GLENN: Okay. Thank you very much, Bruce. I appreciate it.

JOSTEN: Thank you.

GLENN: You bet. Even if it's $10, you can disagree with some of the things but if we don't stand united, they're not going to be small businesses to be able to stand.

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.
