RIP Personal Responsibility


Glenn Beck on the Insider Webcam - and exclusive feature available only to Insiders...

GLENN: The other part of personal responsibility that I would just like to point out. If you went and borrowed money for a house, you might have to leave the house and rent an apartment if you can't make your payments. Now, I know that's been turned into something harsh and ugly and hateful. I like to call it personal responsibility yet again.

There's a story in The Wall Street Journal today about how there's this guy, I don't know, I hate these stories. Bill Muckenfutch, hard working, makes shoe leather. That's all he does. Skins cows, makes them into shoe leather. All day long cow blood comes home every night, buckets of cow blood in his boots and yet he feeds his children. He works hard making shoe leather out of cows. Lately things have gotten so bad for Bill Muckenfutch that, well, he's had to make shoe leather out of cats, neighborhood cats. But that's all right because many of the houses have been abandoned and so like, homeless cats are now living and they're like, they're tramp cats. They're coming in on the boxcars and the empty trains and the cats have been setting fires trying to warm themselves. So Bill Muckenfutch thinks he's doing them a favor by pounding them into little cat head and making them into shoe leather. Well, Bill used to take home a monthly salary of $2100. Every month Bill would make $2100 and for the first time Bill was afforded the opportunity to buy his own home. This is in a time when he didn't live in a neighborhood full of cats. He took advantage of his right as an American to own his own home. So he went to his local bank and there Bill Muckenfutch filled out an application. The bank said to him, "Bill, you make shoe leather. You're trying to buy a $400,000 house." Bill said, "That's right, I'm making shoe leather, work hard every day. And at night just so I can have my right of a house, I spend my night on a second job making cats. Making shoe leather out of cats later if things get bad. So I'm good for this loan." The bank said, "Well, we can get you into a 100% loan and you can do interest only for the first five years." And Bill said, "That's great. How much is the loan?" The bank said, "$1800 a month." "But I only make $2100 a month." "That's right. You may get down to some point where you have to eat those cats." "Well, I don't want them to go to waste." "That's right." I mean, why just make them into shoe leather when you could eat them as well." "Yeah. And I can drink the buckets of cow blood that's in my boots, too, if things get really bad. This sounds like a good deal. What happens after five years?" "Well, then you'll have to pay the interest and the principal and as it stands right now, that payment would be $2200 a month." "But I only make $2100 a month now." "Yes, I know. Be kind of tough, huh? You might have to round up more cats." "Oh, I'm sure everything will be great. That's five years. Ha, I'm a gambling man, although I never go to Vegas because gambling's wrong. But I'm sure everything will work out okay. Thank you, Mr. Banker. Where do I sign?" "Right here." "That's great. Well, I've got to go drain some cows full of blood and also round up some cats just in case there's a hard time right around the corner, but I'm sure there won't be because things always get better. There's never a down turn in anything."

Now, I've elaborated a little bit on the story of Bill Muckenfutch that I read in The Wall Street Journal today but now Bill is blaming the banks. Apparently Bill was not smart enough to figure out when he had to pay the interest and the principle. It was over what he was making in the good times. "I mean, I thought there would be an end supply of cats." Unfortunately for Bill he now knows there's an endless supply of hats. It was a simple misunderstanding. Bill says he was misled. He swore they said cats and not hats. So Bill would like you to bail him out.

Now, I don't know about you but I don't think so. I mean, I think it's fantastic that Bill had the opportunity to own his first $400,000 house. I think it's fantastic for a guy who makes shoe leather out of cows and cats, that he had the opportunity just to do that. But now that people are saying, gee, I don't want my shoes made out of cats; maybe Bill should take some personal responsibility, downsize his life, get into an apartment. I'm just sayin'.

Why is it we're responsible for everybody else's -- and I know that's hate mongering. Talked to somebody just the other day and they said, "Glenn, you can't let people -- what, are you just going to let them lose their house?" Hang on. Is this a trick question? "You can't let them lose their house." Well, I mean, I'm not really the one deciding that. I don't know about you. I'm an innocent bystander in Bill Muckenfutch's mortgage. I mean, Muckenfutch signed the contract. It's between him and the bank. How am I involved all of a sudden if you -- "You'd just let him lose his house?" Yeah, yeah, yeah. You know there's this crazy thing called "Apartments" that are available now. I don't know if you've ever heard of this. "It's like these people are going to lose their house. What are they going to live in? Garbage cans?" No. They will probably do what my parents did and file for bankruptcy. That's what my parents did years ago, had seven years of hell. Lived in a lower standard of living, couldn't get a loan, drove old cars, reset, and what do you know. They're okay. They made it. "You're just going to let your parents file for bankruptcy?" Well, I didn't have the money at the time to stop it as a family member and, gosh, I didn't think it was right to ask all the neighbors to bail them out of their bad decisions, but I'm glad I'm learning the new personal responsibility in America where if your vote doesn't turn out the way you wanted it, you just go vote again. Even though it's a decision you made, just do it again and then somebody else foot the bill for it. And that somebody else might just be Bill Muckenfutch who is out at night every night catching cats to make shoes (whispering). Life in America just isn't fair.

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.
