PAT: Let's go back to Michelle in New Jersey who is telling us about her 40 Day 40 Nights Challenge. Okay, Michelle, go ahead.

CALLER: So I'm the terrible mother who lies to her children. When they want ice cream and it's after bedtime, rather than saying no, it's after bedtime, I say we just don't have any, so I don't have to hear the arguments.

STU: Ah, you're a liar of convenience.

CALLER: Yes.

PAT: Wow.

CALLER: Exactly. They were all lies of convenience. So I said if I'm going to do this 40 day thing, I've got to cut out all these lies. Oh, boy. So I did. And I got all the arguments that I expected I was going to be getting. My life was miserable for several weeks. However, a couple of weeks ago my daughter came to me. She's 8. And she said she wanted to spend $10 on this book/toy thing and I'm taking a deep breath going, oh, jeez, I should tell her no, it's a big waste of money. And I said, well, all right. Can't lie to her. If you want to spend the money, okay, but you said you wanted to save for an iPod. If you spend $10 on this toy, it will take longer to get the iPod. And she got all mad and she huffed away. She came back to me later that night and said, Mom, I decided I wanted the iPod more; I'm not going to buy the book.

PAT: Wow.

CALLER: And it hit me a couple of days after that that she was self regulating. And all those lies of convenience I told her just to avoid the arguments deprived her of the lessons on how and why we make decisions and how to govern ourselves so those little lies that I thought didn't matter, they really mattered.

STU: That's a great point.

PAT: Wow, what a great point. What a great that is really insightful, Michelle. I mean, that's you know, and you can apply that to so many things that we do with our kids like something else we've talked about on a regular basis, participation trophies.

CALLER: Yes.

PAT: That's another lie to your kids that does them harm in the long run that we think is soothing their feelings in the short term. You're exactly right. What a great point. So things are better now and they I mean, is your are the kids adjusting to this, to this new reality?

CALLER: They still argue with me when they don't get what they want.

PAT: Yeah.

CALLER: But at least they say, right, I don't like it but I understand.

PAT: Wow.

CALLER: Great, I don't like it, either, but I'm glad you're understanding.

PAT: That's great.

CALLER: The arguments are less, and they're starting to figure things out more.

PAT: Yeah. Did you have to eliminate

CALLER: I'm doing better than I was doing at 30.

PAT: Did you have to eliminate anything other than, you know, lies to your family like did you, drugs, coke, nose candy, did you have those things going on in your life?

CALLER: Only the Diet Cokes but I

PAT: Oh, my gosh.

STU: That causes Rumsfeld Plague!

PAT: Wow. Are you poisoning your family with that?

CALLER: You know, we're all going to die of something.

PAT: All right. Thanks, Michelle.

This MUST be why Trump (allegedly) had NUCLEAR documents at Mar-a-Lago

According to the Washington Post's "anonymous sources," the FBI was looking for documents related to nuclear weapons during its raid of Mar-a-Lago.

Who could have guessed what Donald Trump did with those documents (never mind that he allegedly had them for over a year before the FBI actually did anything)? And who knows why they were searching through Melania's drawers for such top-secret information? Also, isn't it interesting that even after both Attorney General Merrick Garland and Donald Trump asked for the search warrant to be unsealed, only this very unspecific and very damning bit of information was "leaked" to the Washington Post? And just a few months before the midterm elections?

Since the DOJ still hasn't told us much (what was leaked to the media), Glenn did his best to present a few "theories" of his own on "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday. Watch the video clip below to hear more from "The Glenn Beck Program." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

New details emerge about Trump raid — and 'it doesn't look good for the FBI'

New, alleged details about the raid of former President Donald Trump's home at Mar-a-Lago hint that it's "not looking good for the FBI," said BlazeTV host Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday.

Trump has faced attacks from every direction, but despite all of it, he has "not been found guilty or had any kind of real, solid evidence against him," Glenn pointed out.

Glenn detailed a long list of investigations, accusations, and lawsuits against Trump, and the latest puzzling revelations about the FBI's raid of Mar-a-Lago, which only seem to raise even more questions. For example, did agents truly refuse to give Trump's lawyer a copy of the warrant upon arriving at the home? Because sources have alleged that his attorney was kept "10 feet away from the warrant" and was not allowed to actually read it. If that's true, then it was absolutely against the law.

Then there was the inordinate amount of time spent going through Melania Trump's closet. And did they have the proper authority to break into Trump's safe?

"That warrant had better damn well say that they can break into that safe because the law is, you can't go into somebody's house and ... just tear it all apart," Glenn said. "You have to have a pretty good idea of where things might be located, and you ask for permission for those areas. And you have to know exactly what you're looking for, and if it's in a safe, you need to specifically say, 'it's in a safe and we're having a safe cracker come in.' If they didn't say in the warrant that they could crack his safe, it's the fruit of the poisoned tree. By the way, there was nothing in the safe."

Glenn also explained that the FBI broke into a specific "safe room" that contained national archives, which Trump was allegedly told by investigators to keep in a locked room.

"[Trump] made a safe room, and put two locks on it, at their request. And that's what they broke into," Glenn said. "This doesn't look good for the FBI," he added.

There’s an economic axis of evil taking shape right now, and the people in charge of our government are too stupid to acknowledge and deal with what’s happening. The U.S. dollar and the entire financial system are at stake, and, as Glenn Beck reveals on "Glenn TV" Wednesday, our enemies’ PUBLISHED plans to take the entire thing down.

While all of this is happening, our own leaders are making everything worse. We’ve got Nancy Pelosi risking an international incident, accelerating China’s plans to collapse us. And when Biden SHOULD be focusing on the security of our country, he’s instead preoccupied with controlling the weather with his Inflation "Reduction" Act.

Glenn exposes the TRUE numbers on what that bill will do to your family’s budget. Add to that, they’re more than doubling the IRS to make sure you feel the pain. And if you think they won’t come for you, look at what they just did to the former president of the United States. The DOJ and FBI just went after the political opponent of their boss, Joe Biden.

This is what they are focused on, and the threat to the dollar — and the entire financial system — isn’t even on their radar. Pain is coming for us, and they don’t care one bit.

Speaking before signing the “PACT Act of 2022” on Wednesday morning, President Joe Biden claimed that his wonderful economic plan "is working" and that somehow July’s annual inflation rate of 8.5% was actually “zero.”

“I just want to say a number: zero. Today we received news that our economy had 0% inflation in the month of July,” Biden said during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dutifully echoed the president's not-at-all misleading claim:

The truth of the matter is that last month's inflation rate of 8.5% was a (small) step in the right direction, but only because it was lower than June's 41-year high of 9.1% — and the thing is, anyone who's graduated kindergarten knows it.

So, who do White House personnel think they're fooling? On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere broke down how the Biden administration came to this latest disingenuous conclusion about the economy, what the latest consumer price index actually shows, and why the inevitable Biden brag-fest will be unbearable.
