Okay so my idiot brother worked on my mothers Durango and he took it for a joy ride hauling butt down a dirt road and at the end of the road he put all his weight into the breaks hes 250+lbs. Well after he did that my mother got in it and drove it and she about hit two different people on her way home so i told her not to let him mess with it anymore and don't drive it anymore till i came down from Savannah to fix what he messed up trying to fix and to fix her breaks... well its down to her breaks now after only working on it for 5mins. lol Well she gets no fluid to the rear drums so i started tracing lines to the front and well the brake master cylinder is pumping fluid out for the front but not the rear i took the line off the front of the brake master cylinder and if the breaks are pushed only afew drops come out.... do you think the brake master cylinder is screwed or is it maybe just clogged? I think my idiot brother over stressed the brake master cylinder by jumping on it like he did and blew the valve for the rear feed......

Did you try replacing the brake fluid? Start there and bleed the brakes at all 4 wheels. I would also check to make sure a vacuum line didn't come loose from the booster for the master cylinder. If doesn't fix it, then I would rebuild the master cylinder.
