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.

Many members of the far-left already are calling for a ‘Night of Rage’ after the Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and the White House has been discussing plans to defy the ruling too. In fact, one idea floated by Biden Administration officials, according to the New York Times, includes providing abortions on military bases. So, will America experience another summer of riots? Are YOUR taxpayer dollars at risk? And what does this mean for deep-blue states? Josh Hammer, legal expert and opinion editor for Newsweek, joins Glenn to discuss what may come next...

Transcript

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Josh Hammer, he's the opinion editor of Newsweek. He's the host of the Josh Hammer show. He is really quite brilliant. One of the leading minds in the conservative movement, I think. Josh Hammer joins us now.

To tell us, what did you find in this decision?

JOSH: Glenn, great to be back with you, on such a momentous, and really such an emotional day, honestly. So, you know, look, as you said, this dropped recently. Funny enough, I was in the middle of getting a guest lecture from an organization on the advisory board as to when it drops. So I barely had any time to kind of skim through, let alone guess the concerning dissenting opinions. But it looks like this looks very similar, to the draft opinion that was leaked, by the Politico story, a month and a half ago, in early May. And I think those of us who were praying that the five justices from this leaked draft opinion, would have the fortitude to stiffen their spines against this unprecedented assault. Now knows that our prayers were answered, Glenn. That's really my takeaway right now.

This looks a lot like the leaked opinion. Justice Thomas and Justice Kavanaugh have some reconcurring opinions.

But unbelievable. And really just holding aside the constitutional law stuff for a second hear. Just speaking as pro-lifers, on a day like today, I think we really just need to pause. And I tweeted this out earlier. We need to just be grateful for our half century of pro-life activist forbearers. You know, this -- Glenn, this issue could have gone away after 1973. That was a long time ago. 1973. I mean, this issue could have just gone away. We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to the pro-life moral activist. Political activist. And, of course, yes. Legal activist. Who fought day in and day out, that makes sure this great injustice stayed front and center of our national, political conscience. And in many days, the culmination of a half century of fighting for truth and justice. But in many ways, it's also a new beginning for the pro-life fight as well, interestingly.

STU: How do you mean a new beginning for the fight? I just it's going to turn, I think we're going to see abortion turn even darker in those states that allow it. Is that -- is that what you're meaning by this?

JOSH: Well, look, for a half century now, Roe vs. Wade, and its project any, specifically, the Planned Parenthood versus Casey case of 1992.

They took away from the states obviously. They arrogated authority away from the states, the ability to attempt to nationally codify one view of the morality of abortion.

It happened to be a profoundly immoral view. So these -- the fight now shifts to the states. And the pro-life activists. And all the 50 states. Especially, obviously in red states. Purple states. I mean, admittedly some blue states like New York and California, probably won't be able to touch them there.

But we have to make sure that our side is well positioned in the state Capitols for every red, purplish, probably even light blue state, to make sure we fight for successful, cogent, and morally consistent pro-life legislation. The state of Oklahoma, actually, just north of Texas. Right where you are now, Glenn. They have been leading on this actually. Governor Kevin Stitt signed into law, a fantastic pro-life bill there in Oklahoma. A few weeks ago. Maybe a month ago or so at this point, that basically just bans abortion straightforward from conception. And there are some -- you know, obviously, likable the mother. So forth. But we really need to start thinking about trying to craft legislation now, at the state level. But to your point, I do fear that the blue states will only double down in their radicalism. Unfortunately within that will only lead to an ever greater divide, in our country, that we have today. But obviously, at the end of the day. We're going to save at the end of the day, millions and millions of unborn children. We are going to save human beings who can grow up to cure cancer, who can win Nobel prices.

I mean, this is just a tremendous win for the human species. I don't know how to say it other than that.

GLENN: I will tell you, I saw the stat, that I think it was last year or the year before. 20 percent of all pregnancies ended in abortion. 20 percent.

JOSH: Wow.

GLENN: That is -- that is a shocking number. And we do have our -- our work cut out for us. Because I -- I think that these states are going to double down. But I think, you know -- God doesn't waste anything. You know, there is no waste with God. Even the -- even the worst things that could possibly happen, turn out to be something good. You know what I mean? You're like, holy cow, how did that just happen.

And I think that evil is going to fully come unmasked. I'm telling you, Josh. I don't know how you feel about this. I think this could be the day of America's Kristallnacht. I can see these pro-life centers being burned to the ground today. They're calling for a night of rage around the country. I think evil is going to show itself. And that will scare the American people, hopefully.

JOSH: You know, I've been thinking about this a lot this week, actually. Because I've been bracing for a new kind of George Floyd summer of love, happening this summer. Coming to a city or suburb near you. Unfortunately, myself. Look, I live in Florida. I know, Glenn, you live in Texas. It is in moments like this, where I do think that where you live matters. And who your mayor is. Who your governor is, matters.

Because law and order and rioting and anarchy is not really a federal issue. It is to a limited extent. June 2020, Tom Cotton wrote this op-ed that was pretty controversial at the time.

I happen to agree with it. Where he said, quote, unquote, send in the troops. And there is some federal legislation from the reconstruction era that would justify that.

But most kind of quelling and quashing of anarchy does happen. Constitutionally speaking, at the state and local level. So at a moment like this, where I fear that you're probably not wrong. I take some solace. That Governor DeSantis is my governor. I think Texans should take some solace, that they are represented by -- by a Republican governor. The legislature there as well. So I -- I fear that you are right. I pray obviously, that no one -- it's hard.

I fear that it's something -- that something bad is happening. At the end of the day, of course. It does not mean that justices cannot do what they are supposed to do. So thank God they did that.

GLENN: So, Josh, have you looked into what the White House has been saying? The White House yesterday. In fact, do we have a clip of -- of this?

What the White House said yesterday, about the guns. And then they were turned to the -- the Scott us ruling, for Roe vs. Wade. Do we have that, please?

JOSH: Will the president accept this decision, even if he disagrees with it?

VOICE: I think it's going to come from the Supreme Court. So it's a decision we certainly are going to respond to. I'll leave it at that. Just like any other Supreme Court decision. Just like the one they did today on guns.

GLENN: So the White House won't say that they're going to accept it.

Which I don't think they will. They're talking now about taking doctors and moving them into places like Oklahoma or Texas, where abortions will be outlawed. And putting doctors on our military bases to perform abortions.

I mean, where does this go, when you have a government, that is in defiance of -- of one branch of the government?

JOSH: So there's a lot to unpack here. So we should start from first principles. The idea of judicial supremacy, and this is a peculiar thing, to say on a day like today, where such a pro-life victory has happened in Italy. But if we're going to be consistent here, the idea of judicial supremacy. The idea that the justices, have the sole and exclusive ability to interpret the Constitution for themselves. And no other Constitutional actor, in article one or article two, let alone the state. Has the ability to tentatively interpret it. That is erroneous. In fact, actually it was really Abraham Lincoln actually, who in the Dred Scott case, famously opposed judicial supremacy and flouted the Dred Scott ruling, at least as it pertains to everybody other than Dred Scott himself. I have actually argued, a former legal scholarship, in a law review article actually, that the Laconian view of how each branch of government should interpret the Constitution for itself, is correct.

Having said that. Having said that, there is a thing called prudence. And there is a thing called comedy. And in a moment like today, when it really does look like -- and I agree with you, that we are now bracing for riots through the streets. When the political rhetoric is at DEFCON one. When people are trying to assassinate Supreme Court justices. I think it would be -- at its bare minimum, a profoundly imprudent act. For the Biden administration, to try to undermine this ruling.

Now, what they might do, is they might try to kind of issue some kind of executive orders, or issue some regulations, that might try to kind of undermine it, at the edges here. But at the end of the day, the idea that this returns to the state. There's not really a whole lot they can do about that. Basically, at this point, throughout the country. Kentucky within West Virginia. Kansas. Whatever. If they want to go ahead and ban abortion, what can the Biden administration literally do about that? I mean, short of sending in the National Guard, to protect Planned Parenthood, if the state legislature of Kentucky goes ahead and bans it. There's not a whole lot they can do. And it's very difficult to envision a world, in which the Biden administration literally sends in troops to red states, to protect Planned Parenthood, if that state legislature goes ahead and bans it. So for practically speaking. This is a lot of tough talk and rhetoric. Obviously the campaign here in 2022. There's not really a whole lot that practically speaking, they can do to actually prevent red and purple states from enacting pro-life legislation.

GLENN: I'm glad to -- I'm glad to hear that. I know that they have been working on things. I mean, he has said, you know, there's executive orders, that I can employ. There are things that I can do. He's talked about a national public health emergency. Which I think is just -- is crazy. But I would hope, that the president would come out and say, we strongly disagree with this. And you're right. The court is not the end all. But the court did not end abortion. It just said, the people should decide. I think that's the best kind of court ruling, on any of it. The people should decide what this is. And send it back to the states. Josh, I thank you very much. Appreciate your time. Was there -- there was another ruling, that came out today. Was it important?

JOSH: Oh, no. In comparison to this. A total nothing burger. A 5-4 decision on Medicare reimbursement related. So nothing, honestly.

GLENN: Great. Thank you very much. Appreciate it, Josh. Josh Hammer, opinion editor for Newsweek. And the host of the Josh Hammer show.

GLENN: There are two things trending on twitter right now.

Number one is praise God.

Number two trend is Night of Rage.

Good verses evil.

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

We were live on the air when news broke of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned its controversial 1973 Roe v. Wadeopinion, concluding that there is no constitutional right to an abortion.

"The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," the syllabus of the decision reads.

As expected, the leftist outrage erupted instantaneously, fueled largely by the misinformed idea that overturning Roe v. Wade means abortion will be banned nationwide. But, as stated in the above-mentioned Supreme Court syllabus, the authority has actually been returned to individual states and their duly elected lawmakers.

One such misinformed leftist, Parkland shooting survivor Cameron Kasky, was infuriated that those awful Supreme Court justices "just voted to kill women." So he took to Twitter to urge people to go to the homes of said Supreme Court justices to "let them know how you feel."

"Go to the home of every Supreme Court justice who just voted to kill women. Let them know how you feel," Kasky tweeted.

The backlash was immediate:

Kasky decided to delete his original tweet because he is apparently "sick of republicans talking to [him]." But, unfortunately for Kasky, the internet is indeed forever:

Speaking from the White House, President Joe Biden dutifully helped spread the misinformation about the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and took the opportunity to prompt voters to elect more Democrats in November so that Congress can write abortion protections into law. Did the president just let slip the real reason Congress hasn't made any effort to start writing such laws in the nearly two months since Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion was "leaked" in early May?
