Slave Owners? Hillary Goes on Record Admitting She and Bill Used 'Prison Labor' in Arkansas

Hillary's past may finally be catching up with her. In her highly-touted, grammy award-winning 1996 book, It Takes A Village, the presidential wannabe recounted using prisoners as laborers.

Her description sounded akin to slavery. Here's the excerpt from her book:

When we moved in, I was told that using prison labor at the governor’s mansion was a longstanding tradition, which kept down costs, and I was assured that the inmates were carefully screened. I was also told the onetime murders were far the preferred security risks. The crimes of the convicted murderers who worked at the governor’s mansion usually involved a disagreement with someone they knew, often another young man in the neighborhood…

I saw and learned a lot as I got to know them better. We enforced rules strictly and sent back to prison any inmate who broke a rule. I discovered as I had been told I would, that we had far fewer disciplinary problems with inmates who were in for murder than with those who had committed property crimes. In fact, over the years we lived there, we became friendly with a few of them, African-American men in their thirties who had already served twelve to eighteen years of their sentences.

Filling in for Glenn, Mike Opelka shared his reaction on radio Thursday.

"So Hillary Clinton admits that when she and Bill moved into the governor's mansion, when Bill was governor of Arkansas, that they used prison labor for ten years. That they actually used unpaid labor," Opelka said.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

MIKE: All right. Shifting back to my years of covering the Clintons back in the '90s. And when It Takes a Village came out in 1996, Hillary Clinton got so many different awards. I think she won a Grammy for her recording of It Takes a Village. I actually believe she beat out several different people in the area of spoken word. It should have been in the comedy category maybe. No, just spoken word. But she did win the Grammy. We know she didn't write the whole book. She had help. But that's what happened with these political books. They're put out. They try to show your real true political roots. And her progressivism was on display when she gave us, it takes a village.

It's right there. But also, within the book was Hillary Clinton's admission of owning slaves. And I said that this morning. And half the heads in here went, what? Hillary Clinton had slaves? Yes, she did. And she talked about it. It's in the book -- you can hear it.

HILLARY: I learned a lot --

MIKE: Wait. Go, Hillary.

HILLARY: Better. We enforced the rules strictly and sent back to prison any inmate who broke one.

One unusual aspect of living in the Arkansas governor's mansion was getting to know prison inmates who were assigned to work in the house and the yard. When we moved in, I was told that using prison labor at the governor's mansion was a long-standing tradition that kept down costs. And I was assured that the inmates were carefully screened.

Now, I had defended several clients in criminal cases. But seeing them in jail or court was not the same as encountering a convicted murderer in the kitchen every morning. I was apprehensive. But I agreed to abide by tradition, until I had a chance to see for myself.

MIKE: So Hillary Clinton admits that when she and Bill moved into the governor's mansion, when Bill was governor of Arkansas, that they used labor -- prison labor for ten years. That they actually used unpaid labor. People that had been screened. They had -- they picked the best. Does this remind you of anything if you remove the word "prisoner" or "inmate" and you insert the word "slave," does it change anything? For my money, this is Hillary Clinton. And why this never came out before, why this woman was allowed to be a senator from New York and the Secretary of State and damn near the president, astounds me. If you don't believe me, it's all over the place now. It came out two days ago.

Hillary Clinton. Bill Clinton. They didn't stand up and say, "No, we don't want these people unpaid prison labor, slave labor from the state." I'm not crazy, am I?

'The Fedcoin is HERE': Glenn Beck reveals what the Fed was up to while YOU weren’t watching

While Americans were preparing for Thanksgiving last Wednesday afternoon, the Federal Reserve moved forward with its "Central Bank Digital Currency" program, and that wasn't the only controversial policy that was rolled out while you weren’t watching.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck reviewed the latest financial stories you may have missed over the holiday weekend, including how Biden's pause on student loan payments may be extended again and yet another sketchy Hunter Biden investment.

"You might have missed what happened Wednesday afternoon at the Fed," Glenn began. "They started their CBDC, Central Bank Digital Currency. Yes, the Fedcoin is here. Now they rolled it out on Wednesday — I mean, that was the only day they could do it, you know, because they've been denying that any of this stuff was happening. But they could only get it [launched] when no one was paying attention. So they rolled it out, and it's in its beta test now."

"By the way, India just rolled out its retail pilot program for digital rupees as well. But don't worry," he continued. "Maybe we should start having the conversation of, 'Gosh, this looks like the mark of the beast.' I mean, doesn't it? But surely it's not. Of course not. Not from the U.S. government. They never do anything underhanded or evil. Never."

China has been locking its citizens down for over two years under its zero-COVID policy, and it's becoming more and more clear that this isn’t just about COVID but something much more serious: slavery and control. Now it looks like many citizens have had enough. Protests are currently spreading throughout China and, unlike during the Tiananmen Square protests, the word is getting out.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck looked into the protests' "real motivations," explained how they’re different from the 1989 protests at Tiananmen Square, and predicted how these events are a "game-changer for the entire world."
