Hillary totally hearts FDR’s Four Freedoms — don’t buy into it

Hillary Clinton held her first big presidential rally in New York City over the weekend. Her supporters gathered on Roosevelt Island’s Four Freedoms Park for the event, and the location tied directly into the content of the speech. While Hillary embraced the progressive freedoms that defined FDR’s presidency as an example of government’s power to help the people, Glenn explained the real effect “freedom from want” can have on a people.

"You know, President Roosevelt's four freedoms are a testament to our nation's unmatched aspirations and a reminder of our unfinished work at home and abroad. His legacy lifted up a nation and inspired presidents who followed," Hillary said during the speech.

"No," Glenn corrected. "It's called the Great Depression here in the United States. It's only called the depression worldwide. Because it lasted longer here because of the progressive policies of Franklin Roosevelt."

"The four freedoms take us and reverse the Constitution. It makes it from a charter of negative liberties to a charter of positive liberties. The things the government must do. And that, by the way, is exactly the charter of positive liberties that you would find enshrined in the communist constitution of the former Soviet Union," Glenn said.

"[The Four Freedoms were] FDR's way of completely reversing the Constitution. He said, you have the freedom of speech. The freedom of worship. The freedom from fear. And the freedom from want. The last two don't exist. You cannot have freedom from fear," Glenn said.

"It would be nice if none of us were afraid. But no government couldn't make it so that you're not afraid. Because if they're big enough to make you not afraid of anything, they're big enough to make you afraid of something, usually them," Glenn said.

"Freedom from want. There will always be the poor among us. How do you get rid of the freedom from want? In the nicest utopian society, the Pilgrims tried to do this - it ended in cannibalism. The Pilgrims tried to share. They tried to live the Gospel principles. It cannot be done by man alone. It must be done by God. And the Pilgrims came over and they tried to do it. It didn't work. They gave up. Because what the Pilgrims found out was, there was even in such a morally steadfast group as the Pilgrims, once everybody put their stuff in a pile and took according to their needs, once that happened, they realized there are people in society that it just won't work. So the whole thing fell apart. The same thing was tried down in Virginia. In Jamestown. The Indians actually fenced those guys in and said you're a disease. They were so screwed up. But they started with this idea that we're all going to share. We'll take according to our needs. So they tried the socialist thing. It ended in cannibalism," Glenn continued.

"Freedom from want doesn't work. Freedom from fear will make you afraid of the government. And then freedom of worship. That's not what we have. We have freedom of religion. Not freedom of worship. There is a difference. Beyond that, the last freedom is freedom of speech. We don't have that anymore. Because you can't say what's really on your mind because of political correctness," he concluded.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.

Disney actress Gina Carano was just the latest to be canceled for being vocally conservative — this time for making a Holocaust comparison. But on this week's episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," renowned Jewish historian Edwin Black explains how Gina's comparison wasn't exactly out of line: The second phase of the Holocaust, exclusion, "is like cancel culture."

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril. He told Glenn he believes our culture and our history are being erased. Our ideals are being censored and our values are being mocked.

Bank of America SIDESTEPS the Constitution for Paris Climate Agreement

Bank of America sent out a news release announcing its plans to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions through its financing — meaning it's now putting policies into place that'll make it hard for people to do business if they don't support the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement.

"It is critical that we leverage all parts of our business – beyond our direct operations – in order to accelerate the transition to a net zero global economy," said Bank of America Vice Chairman, Anne Finucane.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck explains how its new policies are an end-run around the U.S. Constitution and another example of the coming "Great Reset." He also exposes Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan's close connections to the World Economic Forum and the push for stakeholder capitalism.

And this is just the beginning.
