Huntsman Cancer Institute Fundraiser


 


Listen to Glenn's interview with Jon Huntsman here...

GLENN: One of my good friends and a man I look up to and try to model myself after is Jon Huntsman, Sr. He is the founder of the Huntsman Cancer Institute. The Huntsman Cancer Institute is a thing that Jon Huntsman is a guy who is going to die broke. If you want to know how to fix America, Jon, instead of during the state of the union last night, you know, in reading little letters from kids who didn't understand Wall Street, you should read the life of Jon Huntsman, a man who grew up poor, is now a billionaire because of the things he invented and created and set up in his company. I mean, if you are driving really pretty much any car, the interior of that car most likely is made by Huntsman Industries. Your egg carton is Huntsman Industries. Now he is giving all of his money away and he started the Huntsman Cancer Institute. This institute houses and manages the largest, most comprehensive genetics database in the world. More cancer genes have been identified by the scientists at the Huntsman Cancer Institute than any other institute. They have received one of the doctors there, a Nobel Prize but I mean, they are giving those things out like candy. A Nobel Prize in medicine for gene targeting. He is one of the top investors in cancer research in the world. I will tell you that as a guy who currently has three people on staff that are fighting cancer, there is no place that I would rather be than the cancer institute if I was fighting cancer. It is an amazing place. This week, Jon, you guys are holding a fundraiser. Things tough for fundraisers right now?

HUNTSMAN: Absolutely, Glenn. You know, one out of two men and one out of three women will have cancer in their lives. That affects every single family in America. 550,000 people will die of cancer, literally a person every minute, if you want to be honest about it. 1500 a day. And with the increase of expenditures, with war, with Iraq, with Afghanistan, with this crazy budget that we've got, they have cut back the basic ingredients of healthcare, which is healthcare in the positive sense. That is, research, the National Institutes of Health, to where when we go in now to do cancer research, Glenn, and we're doing cancer research on children's cancer, on breast cancer, on multiple myelomas, on sarcomas, on pancreatic cancers. We have to end this horrifying disease that impacts every family but almost all of our fundraising, Glenn, is private now. It's scary.

GLENN: I will tell I just want you to know as a listener, I don't tell you to I didn't tell you to call up and give money to the Red Cross or whatever. What I said was, give money to Haiti, help Haiti out. I didn't tell you an institution to go, and the reason why I don't is because I don't, I don't feel comfortable with a lot of these institutions. I don't know them. I look at how much money is, you know, in overhead. With the Huntsman Cancer Institute, because of Jon and Karen Huntsman, there is no overhead on your donation. So if you give a dollar, one dollar goes to the research. There's no overhead. Nobody's there's no limousines being purchased with it, nothing. Goes directly to cancer, cancer research. And because of that, not only can I recommend it highly, and I will tell you you have never seen a hospital like this before. It is the model. You want to change healthcare? You build every hospital in America and model it after the Huntsman Cancer Institute, and healthcare would change overnight. Not only do I can I recommend it, Jon, Tania and I would like to make, which we hope is a first installment this year, but we would like to start your fundraiser out with a check for $100,000.

HUNTSMAN: Oh, Glenn, for heaven sakes. Oh, Glenn, thank you very, very much. I don't even know what to say to you and

GLENN: Well, there is a caveat.

HUNTSMAN: Okay.

GLENN: I want a microwave oven named after us in one of the kitchens on the floor for the patient. So if somebody is there and they've got a person in the hospital and they say, I want a Hot Pocket, they go into that microwave oven and they see the Glenn and Tania Beck microwave oven and that Hot Pocket is theirs, courtesy of us!

PAT: Because obviously that wasn't enough for a wing, right?

HUNTSMAN: Well, Glenn, how about one of the family washing machines.

GLENN: No, I want when they're hungry, clothes, you can live with dirty clothes. Hot Pockets you cannot live without.

HUNTSMAN: Well, as you know we have washing machines, we have family, we have everything for the family because if one is ill and their loved one has to be next to them, they have to have a bed next to them. They have to have washing machines. They have to have businesses to operate. They can't be there, be encouraging a loved one who has cancer because the greatest antidote we have as a cancer sell is love from the family, is hope, is inspiration. That's why I'm so excited, Glenn, restoring hope on the Washington mall. That's it. That's the whole cure for cancer.

GLENN: I know.

HUNTSMAN: I mean, we've got tremendous radiation programs, tremendous chemotherapy programs, surgical programs. But at the end of the day, Glenn, that $100,000, by the way, is still ringing around in my mind. I'm so grateful for you, Glenn. But at the end of the day hope, hope is our best dream in America for individuals, for cancer, for everything that ails us.

GLENN: Jon, when I say hope to you, to me hope can only be found where there's truth. If you're being lied to, if it's not. I mean, if you know what the truth is, there's hope because you can accomplish anything. You can deal with it in one way or another if you really know what the truth is. Do you find that valid?

HUNTSMAN: Oh, absolutely. Because let's take the antithesis of that, the opposite of that, and that's false hope. Most people crumble in their lives because they have believed in somebody or something or some product or some process or some government or some politician and they've let them down. And they crumble. Truth is a response to anything good and worthwhile, and it allows us to believe in ourselves, Glenn, in a remarkable way. And that's what we do with the Huntsman Cancer Institute is we let people believe in themselves. We have great views of it. We let them eat anytime they would like day or night. We build up their emotions and their feelings and their thoughts. We let them believe that they are going to live, they are going to make it. They are going to do it. And then we bring in and we've got 1700 of the best scientists, the best doctors, the finest people to attend to them. But without that hope, Glenn, nothing, nothing can happen in our life, in America or in the rest of the world.

GLENN: All right. Jon, we're going to put a link on our website. If anybody wants to I mean, you are going to be touched. Again when it rains, it pours with cancer. You are going to be affected by cancer at one point and the best dollar you could do to invest in a cure, I'm telling you, is the Huntsman Cancer Institute. We'll put a link for your fundraiser up on our website at GlennBeck.com. Just Google search. You want some more information, Google search Huntsman Cancer Institute. Jon Huntsman, it is an honor, sir, and best of luck to you.

HUNTSMAN: Glenn, I'm always grateful to you and best of luck to you, dear friend, and keep doing what you're doing. You are one of my heroes, Glenn. Thank you.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.

Critical race theory: A special brand of evil

Part of what makes it hard for us to challenge the left is that their beliefs are complicated. We don't mean complicated in a positive way. They aren't complicated the way love is complicated. They're complicated because there's no good explanation for them, no basis in reality.

The left cannot pull their heads out of the clouds. They are stuck on romantic ideas, abstract ideas, universal ideas. They talk in theories. They see the world through ideologies. They cannot divorce themselves from their own academic fixations. And — contrary to what they believe and how they act — it's not because leftists are smarter than the rest of us. And studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country. Marx was no different. The Communist Manifesto talks about how the rise of cities "rescued a considerable part of the population from the idiocy of rural life."

Studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country.

Instead of admitting that they're pathological hypocrites, they tell us that we're dumb and tell us to educate ourselves. Okay, so we educate ourselves; we return with a coherent argument. Then they say, "Well, you can't actually understand what you just said unless you understand the work of this other obscure Marxist writer. So educate yourselves more."

It's basically the "No True Scotsman" fallacy, the idea that when you point out a flaw in someone's argument, they say, "Well, that's a bad example."

After a while, it becomes obvious that there is no final destination for their bread-crumb trail. Everything they say is based on something that somebody else said, which is based on something somebody else said.

Take critical race theory. We're sure you've noticed by now that it is not evidence-based — at all. It is not, as academics say, a quantitative method. It doesn't use objective facts and data to arrive at conclusions. Probably because most of those conclusions don't have any basis in reality.

Critical race theory is based on feelings. These feelings are based on theories that are also based on feelings.

We wanted to trace the history of critical race theory back to the point where its special brand of evil began. What allowed it to become the toxic, racist monster that it is today?

Later, we'll tell you about some of the snobs who created critical theory, which laid the groundwork for CRT. But if you follow the bread-crumb trail from their ideas, you wind up with Marxism.

For years, the staff has devoted a lot of time to researching Marxism. We have read a lot of Marx and Marxist writing. It's part of our promise to you to be as informed as possible, so that you know where to go for answers; so that you know what to say when your back is up against the wall. What happens when we take the bread-crumb trail back farther, past Marxism? What is it based on?

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism.

It's actually based on the work of one of the most important philosophers in human history, a 19th-century German philosopher named Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel.

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism. And, as you'll see in just a bit, if we look at Hegel's actual ideas, it's obvious that Marx completely misrepresented them in order to confirm his own fantasies.

So, in a way, that's where the bread-crumb trail ends: With Marx's misrepresentation of an incredibly important, incredibly useful philosophy, a philosophy that's actually pretty conservative.
