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.

 

Bill O'Reilly joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday to discuss a recent House Homeland Security Committee briefing on the impact of the 9/11 terror attacks, during which "national security experts" claimed "right-wing" groups pose a greater threat to the United States than groups like the Taliban or Al-Qaeda.

Glenn played two video clips from the briefing that showed Senior Fellow Brookings Institute Center for Middle East Policy, Daniel Byman, and former National Intelligence Council Chair during the Obama administration, Christopher Kojm, in apparent agreement that "right-wing extremists" are a bigger threat to Americans today than "jihadists."

"I'm someone who has written extensively on both jihadist groups, but also right-wing, white supremacist groups," Byman says in the first video clip. "And in my mind, there's no question that today in the United States, the right-wing and white supremacist violence is a much greater risk."

"I agree with your assessment and those of my colleagues who have spoken already, there's little doubt that the domestic terrorist threat from white nationalists and right-wing extremist groups is greater than the jihadist threat today," Kojm states in the second clip.

"Who are those idiots?" O'Reilly exclaimed. "It's just unbelievable ... they're not even in the same universe. Yeah, there are bad neo-Nazi Americans running around, yeah, but there are very few of them. I mean, the jihadists are causing death and destruction, death and destruction all over the world. Not just in the United States. These people are so blatantly irresponsible and ignorant, it's just staggering."

The Biden administration was recently caught lying about the White House dog, Major, and his history of biting Secret Service agents, according to newly released emails.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn argued that, if the current administration is willing to lie about something so meaningless to the American people, what else are they willing to lie about? For instance, the State Department claims that there are only about 200 American citizens left in Afghanistan who want to be evacuated. But Glenn has heard very different reports from people on the ground. Is it safe to assume they're currently lying to us about all kinds of things — from the "new and improved" Taliban, to the number of Americans left behind in Afghanistan?

Tonight on "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck outlines everything that led up to the chaos in Kabul in a blow-by-blow takedown that SHOULD lead to massive resignations within the Biden administration and top military brass. Americans died. Americans are – TO THIS DAY – still stranded, and it is ALL on President Joe Biden.

Glenn interviews The Nazarene Fund's Rudy Atallah who gives an update on the total rescue numbers and details the obstacles he's had to overcome with the State Department. He explains why he believes they are thwarting private sector rescue efforts and says the numbers of Americans begging to be rescued are in the thousands — not hundreds — and "will exceed any number that has come out of Jen Psaki's mouth." While The Nazarene Fund rescue efforts continue in a more perilous Afghanistan, Rudy reveals another terrifying obstacle: Chinese and Russians resources deployed to assist the Taliban in rounding up church leaders, women, journalists, and lawyers who put terrorists away.

Glenn also interviews Tim Kennedy, an Afghanistan war veteran and president of Sheepdog Response who partnered with SaveOurAllies.org to sneak past the Taliban and bring thousands to safety. He details the moment the bomb went off when he was on the ground at the Kabul airport and addresses the Taliban kill list. "They will kill babies, execute women, and cut your tongue out. That's just the G-rated stuff."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray ripped into President Joe Biden's latest speech in which our commander in chief touted the Afghanistan withdrawal as an "extraordinary success" that was "designed to save American lives" — despite the loss of 13 of America's finest, our military equipment in the hands of our enemies, and scores of Americans and allies still trapped in Afghanistan.

"This was not a success by any stretch of the imagination and people need to be held accountable," Glenn asserted. "Because if this is allowed to stand, and these people are just allowed to continue on with no ramifications, you don't not want to see what our military will turn into. I am telling you now, we will become the darkest force ever, ever to walk the earth. With our technology, and our resources, with our fighting machines that soon can be run robotically, we will make the Nazis look like rookies ... this must not continue!"

Glenn then played a video clip from the speech in which President Biden claimed that the "Taliban has made public commitments, broadcast on television and radio across Afghanistan, on safe passage for anyone wanting to leave, including those who worked alongside Americans."

"Anyone who says, 'Oh, they're going to let them through their checkpoint,' doesn't know their ass from their elbow!" Glenn responded. "They have no idea what is going on, or they are lying. So, Mr. President, which one is it? Do you not really know what's going on? If so, the 25th Amendment should be invoked. If you do know what's going on, then you should be impeached for lying to the American people on such a grand scale, it's staggering!"
