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?

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
