Progressives: Pro-choice on abortion, anti-choice on EVERYTHING else

The 'official' Democratic Party platform now states that they "strongly and unequivocally support Roe v. Wade and a woman's right to make decisions regarding her pregnancy, including a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay."

So, just how "pro-choice" are the Democrats?

In an effort to learn more about the party's platform, Reason TV wanted to investigate what the Democrats mean exactly when they say "choice." Glenn played the amazing audio of Reason asking the delegates to explain their stance on "choice" this morning on radio.

Given their strong statements on choice, their stance on food choice, school choice, even light-bulb choice, may surprise you:

When asked about whether or not they were pro-choice, the initial response of all of those shown in the video is "yes."

Here are a a few examples of the initial responses:

"I am absolutely pro-choice."

"Yes, it's a woman's right to choose what she wants to do with her body."

"Yes, a woman should have a right to choose based on her doctor and her family."

But, as Reason tried to interject a little common sense into the conversation, the delegates stances seemed to shift.

For example, when one delegate is questioned about their stance on choice in regards to transfats, one delegate said this:

"I think a lot of people make harmful decisions, there's alcohol, there's cigarette smoking, and so I understand the government trying to intervene because the American taxpayer pays a lot of money for fat people."

So this delegate finds Coca-Cola to be a threat to your body, but abortion is a healthy decision?

Glenn pointed out that it is well documented that massive psychological damage can occur to patients receiving abortions - but the left doesn't want to talk about that.

"People should only be allowed to make good choices," another delegated responded in Reason video.

Of course, they fail to consider who gets to decide what is a "good choice" and a "bad choice."

When asked if consumers should have the right to choose what kind of lightbulbs they want to purchase, the delegates quickly became anti-choice again:

"No, they shouldn't because if they're polluting the Earth, it's going to last longer than their lifetime."

Another noted that even if you "prefer the warm glow" or "are that particular about lighting" (which Glenn very much is) it shouldn't "come before the safety and future of our planet."

Sorry, Glenn.

How about right to work states? Surely if the delegates are pro-choice and, like we keep hearing, "fighting for the middle-class," they are all for an individual getting to choose whether or not they want to join a union, right?

When asked if being in a union should be the choice of the worker, one woman actually did respond, "It should be a choice not to be in a union."

Unfortunately, once she heard the phrase "Right to Work," which the left leaning media and Democrat politicians hammered during the Wisconsin drama she quickly changed her tune.

"No, I ‑‑ well, a choice not to be in a union, but I think unions do good.  So I would choose ‑‑ uh…I guess not.  I'm not in favor of 'Right to Work'."

Not surprisingly, the delegates weren't in favor of school choice either.

When asked again at the end of the video, a few of the delegates had a bit of a different response:

"I'm definitely pro choice when it comes to people's bodies."

"I'm pro choice on everything about everything about everything - on an informed choice, and government has a role in that."

"I'm pro-intervention."

"That is amazing," Glenn responded to the unbelievable audio - later adding, "That should be sent to all of our college age students."

It turns out the Democrats are small government - but only on one issue.

"They actually appeal to people's small government sensibilities in the abortion argument," Stu pointed out.

It shows the superiority of the argument conservatives make on almost every topic, because that's what the left turns to when they need it.

Telling the government to 'get out of your business,' or in this case your bedroom, connects with Americans.

A Russian submarine equipped with a “doomsday weapon” — a nuclear bomb that Russia claims can create a "radioactive tsunami" — has apparently vanished from its base in the White Sea, according to reports.

NATO has reportedly warned that the "Belgorod," a massive nuclear submarine, has "gone missing" from a Russian base in the Arctic Circle, and officials are concerned that Russia could be gearing up to test its advanced weapon system known as "Poseidon" or the "weapon of the Apocalypse."

Meanwhile, the U.S. Navy's newest aircraft carrier, the USS Gerald R. Ford, has suddenly been declared combat-ready after years of setbacks, technology issues, and delays.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck detailed just how powerful Russia's "missing" submarine really is and broke down how these "coincidental" current events mirror those that led up to World War II.

"It's really not a good thing ... but the world has gone through things like this before," Glenn said. "In the end, after it's all over, good things can happen. You just gotta get to the other side."

Did the FBI just get away with the BIGGEST armed robbery in US history?

In 2021, an armed group broke into a U.S. Private Vaults store in Beverly Hills and stole $86 million worth of valuables — the largest armed robbery in U.S. history. That "armed group" was the FBI. Now, it appears that the FBI and U.S. attorney’s office in Los Angeles "misled" the judge who signed the warrant for the seizure and still haven't returned the stolen goods to the 700 customers affected, according to newly disclosed court filings.

The details of the government’s alleged deception have come to light in a class-action lawsuit by U.S. Private Vaults customers who say the raid violated their rights, the Los Angeles Times reported. The FBI and U.S. attorney’s office denied misleading the judge, and a spokesperson claimed the warrants were lawfully executed.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed some of the shocking story's details and discussed why incidents like this may become more common.

"None of the customers have been charged with any crimes. Not a single customer, out of the 700, not a single customer has been charged with a crime, but they can't get their stuff back," Glenn noted. "And this is going to happen more and more."

"It's incomprehensible that this stuff goes on in the United States of America," Stu said. "If you were to tell me this happened, you know, in Russia, I'd expect it. The fact that the United States government is claiming and just taking stuff from citizens all around the country with no crime, many times without even being charged, let alone ... conviction."

"Listen to this," Glenn continued. "The lawsuit also claims that some of the box holders who came forward to reclaim their seized property were then subjected to another investigation. If you went to the FBI and said, 'I want my stuff back,' the FBI examined their bank accounts, their DMV records, their tax return, and any criminal history checks."

However, box holders who decided to forfeit their property were also suspected of trying to "avoid becoming an FBI target," Glenn noted.

"So, you're guilty if you walk away and you're guilty if you ask," Stu added.

"This is America, gang," Glenn said. "It doesn't seem like it because it's not a constitutional America. But this is the America we now live in, and it is important that you wake up and stand up. ... God's people have got to start standing up, or we'll lose freedom. The world's freedom will be on our heads."

Glenn Beck: One TERRIFYING thing is clear no matter who caused the Nord Stream pipeline leaks

Evidence strongly suggests that the Nord Stream pipeline leaks were the result of sabotage, and U.S. and European officials have been working to discover who could be behind the explosions that damaged the natural gas pipelines running from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea.

Was it Russia? Ukraine? Germany? But no matter who carried this out, it has put the entire world in grave danger, because if this is indeed an attack, it means that non-military key infrastructure outside Ukraine is now on the "target menu," warned Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It is so important for you to understand, this is now a non-military key infrastructure that has been destroyed," Glenn explained. "If Russia thinks we did it, they've already said, 'Nukes are now on the table.' That gives us a green light to use nukes," he added.

"This is non-military key infrastructure outside of the borders of Ukraine. To date, as far as we know, combat targets were either in Ukraine, or were military targets hit inside of Russia by Ukrainian Air Force or special forces. But the target menu now includes key civilian infrastructure: electricity, water utilities, energy production. That makes Russia more dangerous than ever. And that would be true no matter who carried out the attack," Glenn stated.

Now, the Russians are saying the Unted States did it, and the U.S. is saying it was Russia. But no matter who carried out the attack, "We are facing a Cuban Missile Crisis," said Glenn.

"This could end up being the biggest story of our lifetime and ... if it isn't played calmly by every side, this could be World War III," he continued. "Russia has already said that this gives them the right to use nuclear weapons as soon as they find out for sure who did it. That would be catastrophic, absolutely catastrophic."

The White House can try to spin inflation all day long (and it's trying very hard). But you feel the effects of President Joe Biden’s disastrous leadership every time you go to the grocery store or fill up your car. The American economy is on the brink of disaster after less than two years of a Democrat-controlled Congress and White House. And they’ve got plenty more destruction in the works.

The bottom line is they WANT you to get used to a lower living standard. So, what do you do? How do you prepare? What will food and fuel cost in the months ahead? What would the next Great Depression look like? How are you going to feel the effects of ESG and the Left’s war on oil?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck brings in a panel of economic experts to answer those questions. He’s joined by Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” and Jim Iuorio, a small business owner, stockbroker, and managing director of TJM Institutional Services. While both forecast the worst-case scenario for average Americans, they also offer a glimmer of hope to get us out of this mess.
