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.

 

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck discussed the recent news that a primary source for the Steele Dossier — the document on which much of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was based — had been investigated by the FBI for contacts with suspected Russian spies. Glenn also shared several previously unpublished texts and emails from FBI agents have recently been released.

According to a letter sent by Attorney General William Barr to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, the FBI knew early on that the research compiled by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele relied on a "Primary Sub-source" that had been "the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his or her contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers" — but still used it to obtain warrants to spy on former Trump campaign-aide Carter Page.

But, it gets even worse. Now, new leaked texts and communications from FBI agents within the department at the time of the entire Russian collusion effort were disclosed in federal court filings on Thursday. According to the court documents, FBI agents purchased "professional liability insurance" to protect themselves in January 2017, just weeks before Donald Trump was inaugurated president, because they were concerned about the agency's potentially illegal activity during the Russia collusion investigation.

"Trump was right," one FBI employee wrote in response to then-President-elect Trump's Jan 3, 2017 tweet which read: "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"

Chief researcher Jason Buttrill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss an "explosive" new report released Wednesday by Senate Republicans on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Among other serious allegations, the 87-page report claims that "Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," and the richest woman in Russia.

"The transactions discussed [in the report] are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family," the report stated.

Jason suggested the Senate's findings provide additional evidence to back allegations of a money-laundering scheme, which Glenn detailed in a four-part series about Biden's shady connections to Ukraine. Learn more on this here.

"Laundered money is very hard to track to its finality," Jason explained. "I'm sure the Biden camp is really hoping that it just looks suspicious, but [investigators] don't ever find the eventual end point. But, if they do – and it's possible they already have – this is going to be explosive, very explosive."

Revolutions rarely happen overnight. The Left started laying the groundwork for November 3, 2020, the moment Hillary Clinton had to concede the 2016 election to Donald Trump. It was always solely about getting rid of President Trump — and there's a playbook for that.

Last week, Glenn Beck showed you the "Seven Pillars of Color Revolution" written by a former U.S. diplomat, which are the conditions that must be in place for a successful Eastern European-style "Color Revolution." The left seems to be pushing for a Color Revolution this election because they are using the exact same playbook.

In part two of this series, Glenn peels back the layers on the first four of these Color Revolution pillars to show you how they work and what the end goal is. And he reveals one of the architects of the playbook – a Color Revolution specialist, former ambassador, and former Obama administration official who is one of the key masterminds of this revolution.

Joining Glenn is political campaign veteran and BlazeTV host Steve Deace who says the polls that claim Biden is leading the race "are trash." We're being set up to believe that if Trump wins in spite of the polls, it must be an invalid election.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.
