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.

RELATED: Hillary Clinton Accused of Using ‘Convicted Murderer Slaves’ to Serve Her in Governor’s Mansion

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?

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
