Glenn Beck: Healthcare a right?

Senator Harkin: Healthcare bill is only the beginning...

GLENN: Let me, let me show you Senator Harkin, a talk he gave on healthcare that if this doesn't show you that everything we have told you and warned you about and you've been warning all your friends about is absolutely correct, I don't know what is. Listen to the language. There's about 20 minutes of meat in about two minutes here. Listen to this.

HARKINS: What this bill does is we finally take that step. As our leader said earlier, we take that step from healthcare as a privilege to healthcare as an inalienable right of every single American citizen. And as I said before, this bill is not complete. I've used the analogy of a starter home in which we can add additions and enhancements as we go into the future but like every right that we've ever passed the American people, we revisit it later to enhance and build on those rights, and we will do that here surely.

GLENN: Stop. Now, let's go back at the beginning. Let's take this step by step. Go ahead. Start they beginning.

HARKINS: What this bill does is we finally take that step. As our leader said earlier, we take that step from healthcare as a privilege to healthcare as an inalienable right of every single American citizen.

GLENN: Stop. Okay. First of all, our leader. What our leader has said to us is that we're going to take this final step here. We're taking the step of creating an inalienable right. Specific language, an inalienable right. Let's first of all, where's that language from?

STU: Sure he just made it up. People say inalienable all the time.

GLENN: Where's that language from? Declaration, Declaration of Independence. Give me the line. We hold these truths to be self evident, right?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Go ahead.

PAT: We hold these truths to be self evident.

GLENN: That all men are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights. Among those rights, yeah, are life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. So let's go back to that language. All men are created equal and endowed, meaning given automatically granted certain all men are endowed by their creator certain inalienable rights. This is so simple that the line right before it is we find these truths to be self evident. This truth is so self is so common sense that it is self evident, meaning you don't need anybody to point it out.

STU: You need no other evidence other than what it is.

GLENN: You need no evidence. You don't need anything. You could be in a room and you'd be like, yep, that's self evident. That makes sense.

STU: That's a great phrase.

PAT: Something everybody knows.

GLENN: We find these truths to be self evident that all men are endowed

STU: Are created equal.

GLENN: Are created equal and endowed by their creator. With certain inalienable rights. Now, that's important to understand. Because he used this language. He used inalienable rights. We have taken it and made it an inalienable right. This is Senator Harkin making, declaring himself and the government God. Our creator. Rights no longer come from the creator. They come from congress. They come from Washington. This is the end of the American Constitution. This is the end or the beginning, I should say the last, the last piece of turn the engine on, of fundamental transformation of the American system. Once they tell you without fear that they can create inalienable rights, the whole system is upside down. Let's continue to listen. Because there's more. Continue.

HARKINS: As I said before, this bill is not complete. I've used the analogy of a starter home in which we can add additions and enhancements as we go into the future.

GLENN: Stop.

PAT: How many times have we said that?

GLENN: How many times have I told you, now listen, what we've got here in one statement is almost everything that we said last year, true. We told you last year they're not paying attention to the Constitution, that they are going around the Constitution, that none of this is constitutional to do. We have told you that they are taking power. It doesn't matter what's in the bill. What matters is the structure. They must change the structure and then they'll do whatever they want. This is what he has just said. We create rights, not God. We give man listen. This is why this is important. Man is endowed by certain inalienable rights by the creator. If that is not true, then your right to free speech, your right to carry a gun, to protect yourself, for the Fifth Amendment, to reasonable search, to all rights that you have that are protected in the Constitution, God which is now Washington, the god of rights, those that can create rights can also deem other rights not good enough for you. If I may point out Arianna Huffington where she said just recently that she understands a person's right to free speech but there should be some sort of system for the free speech of people like Glenn Beck. Well, if they can create, can they not take it away? This is why the structure, I have told you before you must not allow them to pass any of this because once they do, they've got their starter home. Everything that we told you could come, would come, will come. Because they'll just add additions. They'll just tweak it here and there. Go back.

HARKINS: But like every right that we've ever passed to the American people

GLENN: Stop. Do you hear, do you hear what he's saying? He is either under some grand disillusion grand illusion, he is either or he's part of creating it. He doesn't understand our system. For every right that we have created or passed for the American people. That's not your job!

STU: Creator, he's saying what we have created, and he's the creator.

GLENN: Do you hear this?

PAT: Uh huh. As you mentioned, he's putting himself in the creator position. In congress.

GLENN: In the 1930s with FDR the American people were tied enough to history, the founders and the Constitution. Remember it was really the people out of Columbia University under Woodrow Wilson and under the direction of Woodrow Wilson and then into the almighty Harvard where they started dismantling our founders, their views and our Constitution. It took a few years for that to really kick in. Well, we're there now to where they believe that the American people are so disconnected from the founders and what the Constitution actually means that they can come out and say these things, that they are creating rights! And no one in the media will even ask Senator Harkin any questions on this. I can guarantee you. If they do, it will be one he'll dismiss it, he will give it some flippant answer and he'll move on. This is huge.

So they have the starter home. What else?

HARKINS: We revisit it later on to enhance and build on those rights. And we will do that here surely.

GLENN: It is a starter home with unlimited property. Because remember we're also finding out this year, you don't really have a right to own property if those who are creating rights need that property.

Now, I would love to hear from somebody a serious conversation, how that's not accurate. How what I just said to you is some sort of conspiracy. When you have a senator who has taken an oath to protect the Constitution and yet he doesn't even seem to understand the Constitution. When you have a senator who believes that he has the power to create rights wholesale and then not only create the right but have it that there are different kinds of rights, there are starter rights that later transform into new rights, bigger rights, more powerful rights. Whoa. Whoa. That's quite a different concept than our founders had. Is it the same concept that your neighbors have? We'll make this available in audio, put this in the newsletter today. You should ask them, what is, what is your understanding of rights, where they come from? At least in the 1930s include this as well at least in the 1930s they tried to build a Second Bill of Rights. They tried to actually tell the American people we have grown so far, we need a Second Bill of Rights that would include healthcare. No, no. They look at the American people as so stupid that they really believe that you don't understand that government doesn't create rights. Only God and tyrants create rights.

 

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."
