Glenn Beck: More sulfur -- Obamacare funds abortions

Learn more about the Restoring Honor Rally, 8/28 in Washington DC...

GLENN: Okay. Now, I want to play a couple of pieces of audio for you because it is amazing to me. Yesterday I told you on television, I played the audio of Barack Obama actually having the unmitigated gall to get pastors on a conference call, religious leaders who were concerned about that the federal government was going to start funding abortions. Now, I don't know what their excuse is going to be. It's going to be probably something along the lines of, no, the HHS, they are giving the states money and then the states are funding the abortions. It's money laundering. HHS is now starting the healthcare and it is abortion on demand. In two states, New Mexico and Pennsylvania, they are already — I think it starts in August, like August 1st, abortions on demand. Barack Obama, when Stupak was in this whole thing, he tried to get people on the phone. People who were concerned about abortion saying we don't want to pay for abortions. And he said, that's ridiculous. But he went a step further. He said this on the conference call.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: There are some folks out there who are frankly bearing false witness, but I want everyone to know what health insurance reform is all about. You've heard that this is all going to mean government funding of abortion. Not true. This is all — these are all fabrications that have been put out there in order to discourage people from meeting what I consider to be a core ethical and moral obligation.

GLENN: Stop. There he is. It's a core ethical obligation. This is not going to happen. In fact, these people — and referring to people like you and me — are bearing false witness. That's one of the big ten: Thou shall not bear false witness. One of the big ten. He is bearing false witness about people bearing false witness to pastors, about the killing of the innocent unborn. That's about as evil as you can get. That doesn't seem to, nobody wants to print that in the paper.

PAT: In fact, it was an entire half hour on it yesterday, last night on the TV show, and what do they come back with today?

GLENN: Well, here's —

PAT: One website was talking about, what was it they brought up?

GLENN: My contract.

PAT: Oh, my gosh!

GLENN: I was doing a deal on —

PAT: About taking a man at his word.

GLENN: At his word. I want to do deals with a handshake. I do deals with a handshake. Now, that doesn't mean I don't have paperwork. I mean, you think — you really think giant corporations are going to get into a deal without paperwork? Of course not. I'm perfectly willing to work without a contract. I honor my word. There have been things — Joe, what was it with he just did like six months ago that, like, really hurt me? Remember? There was something that we had a deal with and it cost me? It was something that cost me, like, six figures. Because I had, I had given my word to somebody that I was going to do it I don't remember what it was. But I mean, and it wasn't even — remember? We had this conversation? I don't remember what it was, but we had the conversation and you knew the answer, but you had to ask. You had called, somebody had called and they said, you know, you've got to blah, blah blah. And you said, I'll talk to Glenn about it, but I know he's given his word on this and he's not going to do it. I had no paperwork.

Okay, you remember what it is? Yeah. So I mean, I don't need paperwork. My word is my bond. Why is it that way? Because I lost trust once in my life. When I was drinking — and Pat knows because he was there. Pat, could anybody really trust me?

PAT: No.

GLENN: Okay. Thank you for that. Thank you. I mean, you could have thought about it a little bit, well, Glenn, I don't I lost my word because nobody could trust me because I was living a lie. I was an alcoholic. Okay, you don't need to ponder it like this.

PAT: No, I don't want to bear false witness. So I'm trying to be true here.

GLENN: The one thing I promised myself is if you give me a second chance, Lord, I won't do that again. I promise you, I will not lie. I won't cheat, I won't steal, I won't do it. He's given me a second chance. I'm not going to violate that. So I was using this example yesterday about going to Fox and, you know, looking at Roger Ailes and saying, I look a man in the eye and shake his hand, I want to know, that's the way we do it. He said, fine. You don't need a contract with me. I shook hands and I said, you'll never need one with me. Now, do the attorneys need them? Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah. I don't need it. I don't need it. I don't care what it even says in paper. I've got a handshake and a man looked me in the eye. That's the way it should be. And I use this as an example of, here's the president of the United States, the most powerful man in the world.

You know why we have a problem with our stock market and our business? Because nobody can trust each other. Not only did he look people in the eye, he went the extra mile. He called religious people and said, anybody who says that we're going to federally fund abortions, they are bearing false witness. Then they do it, but he goes the extra step. He puts it in writing in an executive order. So not only, the contract's not worth anything, the paper's not worth anything, the word's not worth anything, and he lies at the time to other people about other people who are standing against him. It is about as evil as you can get. And what did the reporters do? "Glenn Beck says he doesn't have a contract at Fox." That's the story.

PAT: That's the story.

GLENN: That's the story.

PAT: That's amazing.

GLENN: The other thing we talked about this week was the fact that not only social justice. Social justice means redistribution of wealth. That's what it means. The way Jim Wallis and all of these people on the left mean social justice, they mean redistribution of wealth. Who's going to be on with us in a half hour? Who did you get a hold of? Did you get a hold of Dobson or — Robinson? We'll have James Robison on. He is huge evangelical pastor. He will tell you about social justice. He will tell you about what they mean when they say social justice. So I talk not only social justice but I talk about collective salvation this week. Now, collective salvation is a Marxist idea. Because Marxism is Godless. Do you remember the Soviet Union? It's godless. So what is collective salvation? That Jesus died, sure. But he didn't give you your salvation. Your salvation comes from, if you're an oppressor, if you're a white person, Jeremiah Wright, listen to any of his talks, if you're a white person, you must, to be saved, give up all of your stuff. Now, if the oppressed can rise up and take the stuff from the rich white oppressor, they can provide collective salvation. It puts people in the role of the Messiah and that their salvation is linked to everyone's salvation. So in other words, if they have power, they're going to have to do things that will lead to everyone's salvation. It's imperative because their salvation is dependent on it because we all go together. It's human, serving now the party of human, party of human. That's not the way it happens at the pearly gates. It's an individual thing. I explain this on television. So in other words Jesus dies on the cross because he's a victim. First of all, he chose. But collective salvation teaches that Jesus was a victim. And then the tomb is irrelevant because he rises from the dead, but he didn't do anything. He's not conquering anything. He's still a victim. And we all have to do what we have to do to be able to survive. Okay? To be able to have salvation. We have to force people into it. I said, that's like Jesus dying on the cross. And then what? He comes back, what? I've got to get them Jews. What does the media report? Glenn Beck says Jesus has to come back and get them Jews. No. I'm saying in a perverted world, in a perverted gospel. "Glenn Beck says that Jews killed Jesus. Romans killed Jesus."

PAT: Well, I mean, technically the Romans, yes.

GLENN: Yes, they did.

PAT: Carried out the will of the Sanhedrin. The Jews wanted him executed.

GLENN: Now, does that make me all of a sudden anti Jewish?

PAT: No.

GLENN: That's what they're going to say.

PAT: That's ridiculous.

GLENN: There is no one more pro Israel and more pro Jew than I am. I can't take it anymore. The lies and the bearing of false witness.

Here's the truth, and you are not going to get it from me. You are going to get it, the words of Barack Obama and Jim Wallis and Van Jones, I'm going to play audio for you today that should shake you to your core. This is the reason why they are doing these things. We've been talking about Cloward and Piven and next week I'm going to show you the plan. We found their manifesto and I swear to you, I swear to you this is it. You'll understand it all. But above that is this perversion of religion, this perversion of the gospel of Jesus Christ. That's what it is.

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.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

Image source: Simon Dawson/Bloomberg via Getty Images

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
