GLENN: I want to play some audio of -- this is a local news report?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Of a solar panel company here in America that's having problems. Listen.

VOICE: "Solyndra was the epitome of what the government envisioned to be our green tech future. President Obama came to tour the solar panel production line. So did Governor Schwarzenegger and Senator Barbara boxer. Confidence was so high that Solyndra got a $535 million Stimulus Program loan to build this new factory along Highway 880 in Fremont. Now comes word it will shut down its older plant down the street. 40 employees will be laid off, 150 contract workers won't be renewed. The reason is price competition from lower cost Chinese solar panel makers. Solyndra says it needs to cut its expenses so it can drop its prices."

VOICE: "Today we would be somewhere in three to $4 per watt basis. We need to be at a $2 per watt basis all in which is fully installed with panels and mounts on rooftop."

VOICE: "Suddenly the future isn't as bright as it was a year ago and taxpayer money is on the line. Solyndra's new shiny plant cost $733 million. 535 million came from federal funds. Only 198 million from private funds. So the government stake is 73 percent."

VOICE: "According to a filing by Solyndra with the Securities and Exchange Commission, if it were to default on the $535 million loan, the Department of Energy would end up owning that brand new fabrication plant as well as the land underneath."

GLENN: So let's make sure I understand this.

PAT: In one year.

GLENN: Half a billion dollars, half a billion dollars went into this plant. They're about to default on it. The new green economy, they're about to default on it, and if they do, the Department of Energy owns this plant.

PAT: And the land underneath.

GLENN: And the land underneath.

PAT: And why they can't compete with Chinese solar panel companies?

GLENN: Not only Chinese, Indian as well. Do you know what President Obama is doing -- the green economy coming here in the United States. Solar panels. Do you know what he was saying today? He was talking about the green economy that we are changing over to a green economy. And he's very excited because we have a partnership with India. We're going to need solar panels.

PAT: Wait. I thought we were making new jobs --

GLENN: We're going to buy them from India. We can't make them here. You and I know that we can't compete against India.

PAT: I thought it was the new green energy jobs.

GLENN: No, those plants are going out. The Department of Energy is going to make those solar panels.

PAT: We were going to save or create like eight million new jobs in the green economy.

GLENN: No, Spain has already done this. They lost two job for every one they corrected.

STU: Two and a half.

GLENN: Thank you for correcting that. I would hate for it to go uncorrected.

PAT: Was he talking about saving Indian jobs then?

GLENN: I'm not sure which jobs he was thinking about saving. But this is the insanity that we're in right now. It's everything that we -- it's everything that we told you. Now, when we originally met, the Globe met after World War II, we met in Brenton Woods, New Hampshire. This is called the Brenton Woods One Conference. It was to decide the gold standard. We're going to be the gold standard. We have the world's gold, and we're going to develop the currency and everybody will have our currency and you'll hold our currency because we won't violate the gold standard, because you can trust us. And so the world did. And then Brenton Woods Two happened. The reason why Brenton Woods Two happened because we used to spend ourselves into oblivion with the great society and the Vietnam War and we decided we wanted it all and our politicians told us we could have it all. We started devaluing our money. We started printing more dollars than we had for gold. And the world freaked out. And so there was called Brenton woods two. And what we told the world then, in 1970 -- what was it, 1972 -- is we will destroy our industry. We won't make things here any more. Now, they didn't tell you that. But that's what they told the world. We will buy our crap from you, because we want it all. And so we went from the largest lender nation to the largest debtor nation, and we destroyed. And when the steel mills closed, and they're closing down in Allentown and all these people said, oh, this is so horrible, it was designed to close these plants. We now have the new green movement. We close -- we were the ones that made incandescent light bulbs. How many jobs were lost, with the flick of George Bush's pen we closed all of the -- I think they were G.E. plants for incandescent light bulbs, and all those jobs went overseas to China. We intentionally destroyed our industry because we were letting the rest of the world catch up. And now we are intentionally destroying our dollar so the rest of the world can catch up. That is what's happening. Now I've told you today that there are things you can do to prepare. And I want to remind you of the story of the three little pigs. I'm going to tell the story on what we all remember. And Pat's going to tell the story as it really happened. Walt Disney tells us this great story of the three little pigs. The first little pig was busy playing all day and he built his house of straw. And the wolf came and knocked on the straw door and said: Little pig, little pig, let me come in. The pig said not by the hair on my chinny chin chin. And the wolf blew the house down and the pig escaped to his brother. His brother was still lazy, not as lazy as the first pig, but still lazy. That brother had a house made of sticks. And the wolf then got to his brother's house and said: Little pig, little pig, let me come in. And he said not by the hair on my chinny chin, chin, I'll huff and puff and blow your house in and because of the sticks, because the other brother didn't prepare either. And so both little pigs ran to the third house. This was the pig that took the time to prepare, because he knew a wolf could come. And so all three little pigs were inside. Little pig, little pig let me come in. Not by the hair of your chinny chin chin. I'll huff and puff and, blow your house in, he couldn't. So he goes through the chimney. The third brother had a pot of boiling water. The wolf goes down the chimney into the pot of boiling water and they have a hairy wolf stew. All three pigs are there. Here's really what happened in the way the story was originally written.

PAT: Lazy first brother builds the first house out of straw. The wolf comes, knocks on the door, says: Little pig little pig, let me in. Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin. He huffs and he puffs and he blows the house down and eats the first pig. He goes to the second house, built of sticks, and he says: Little pig, little pig, let me come in. Not by the hair of my chinny, chin chin. He blows the house in and he eats the second little lazy pig. And he goes to the third house, with the smart, industrious prepared working family pig, who built his house out of bricks. And he tries to huff and puff and blow his house in. He can't. Then he tries to trick him in other ways by telling him, you know what, there's some new berries down the street the farmer has all kinds of great berries, I'll see you there about 5:00. So the pig comes at 4:00, gets all the berries and eats them. That happens a couple of times. The wolf gets so angry he tries to climb down the chimney where there is a boiling pot and he's boiled to death.

GLENN: And eaten by the one pig who was smart enough to prepare all the way from the brick house to the going earlier to get the food before the wolf was there, all the way to, hey, I should boil a big pot and put some carrots in it, because he's going to come down the chimney.

STU: You can see why he left out eating the other characters part of the story.

GLENN: It's not as happy a tale.

PAT: But it shows you cannot prepare and still be okay, when in real life, not necessarily the case.

GLENN: No. If you want to have the three little brothers, here's what happens. The two little brothers run to the third brother's house and the third brother exacts some sort of charge. He exacts some sort of payment. Now, maybe the other pigs work for the third pig, for the rest of their life. Maybe he says, well, then you're going to have to do X, Y or Z or I'll leave you out in the cold. But make no mistake. If it goes the Disney way, where the two little pigs that didn't prepare come running to the third pig's house, if it goes that way, those two little pigs will either be left out in the cold to be eaten or they will become slaves to the third little pig, or the three little pigs will all be in there together but it won't end happily ever after, because at some point the third pig will say: You know, this isn't any of your stuff. Get the hell out of my house. I let you in to help you and now you think you own it all. Get the hell out of my house.

PAT: Then he'll be accused of the media being a hater pig or hoarder pig.

GLENN: Or whatever kind of pig, but it doesn't end well for the third pig if there's only one prepared pig. So let's not be unprepared pigs, shall we? This is why Disney didn't make it this way. Because it just isn't happy. Be a happy pig. Got it?

 

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.
