Glenn Beck: Obama omits 'Creator' again...



Vote and Comment: Obama Continues to Omit ‘Creator’ From Declaration of Independence

GLENN: First of all, in this debate with Coons and O'Donnell, you have the evolution coming up again. Why is evolution coming up? It is critical. First of all, they're trying to paint her as a crazy Christian

PAT: Witch.

GLENN: Christian.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Who's going to jam everything down your throat in a Wiccan sort of way as a Christian. And so they are trying to make her look crazy. But more importantly, you have to understand why evolution is so important. And we just explained that for a second. But you remember if God didn't create, if things evolved, then your rights evolve. You're not endowed by your Creator. It's interesting. You're not endowed by your Creator with certain inalienable because your rights evolve. Just like you go from a monkey to a man, you go from simple rights to higher rights, and somebody has to take those rights and give them to you and take them away or change them. This is again the evolutionary thinking of progressivism. President Obama just gave yet another speech.

PAT: And in it once again he omitted the word Creator from

GLENN: How many times, America, is this man going to talk about collective salvation, which is "I've got to save all the half monkey people or I don't get saved." It is, it is an affront to Christianity. And when I say Christianity, I know there are people like Jim Wallis, you know, who vehemently disagree. I know there are Marxists out there that believe in the liberation theology which is, again, collective salvation. I get that. And I know there are a lot of Christians out there that don't think I'm a Christian because I'm a Mormon. I testify to you now that Jesus Christ is my savior and He saved me. The only reason why I am alive today is because of the atonement of Jesus Christ. Period. So let's move on.

Here's what you need to understand. There is a difference in the idea of Christianity and how we all practice but not of the salvation and atonement of Jesus Christ. If you are a Christian, Jesus Christ is the savior. Through him your sins are washed away. He has the only power to save. Only Jesus Christ.

PAT: Well, what about collectively? Like if my salvation is tied into your salvation. So

GLENN: I don't know why you have to do this.

PAT: Say then that's the only way. If you're saved, then I can be saved.

GLENN: So it is an affront to Christianity. It is the antithesis, right? The exact opposite of what is preached, or supposed to be preached by Christians. That is the Gospel. Not the social gospel, not, you know, the new social justice that's the Gospel gospel, period. And if you want to change it, well, then just say "I'm changing it." But they don't ever do that. They let it evolve, slowly. Again, evolution. Now, what is the president saying in the speeches? How many times does he have to omit the word "Creator" in our Declaration of Independence? And then brush it off like it's not important? It is gigantic.

PAT: He's done it at least three times including this one.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: These truths to be self evident that all men are created equal...

GLENN: Pause, pause, pause.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Endowed with certain inalienable rights.

PAT: There it is. Endowed.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Life and liberty.

GLENN: Endowed by who?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Pursuit of happiness.

GLENN: Endowed by whom?

PAT: Well, it got the notice of Les Kinsolving who is a White House correspondent and he asked Gibbs about it.

KINSOLVING: questions. Twice in recent weeks the president has quoted on the Declaration

VOICE: It's been four times now.

PAT: It's four now.

GLENN: It's four.

REPORTER: Has omitted the declaration's reference to rights, quote, endowed by their Creator. Why did he omit this part of the declaration?

GIBBS: I haven't seen the comments, Lester, but I can assure you the president believes in the Declaration of Independence.

PAT: Again that wasn't the question.

GLENN: That's not the question. And, of course, he believes in the Declaration of Independence? Why would you say "Of course"? Woodrow Wilson didn't believe in the Declaration of Independence. Progressives don't believe in the Declaration of Independence! They believe it exists, they believe it was written, but in their honest moments, which you can find very few of them, will they tell you anything but this: "Declaration of Independence is an old document. It relates to the things that were going on in 1775 and 76, and there's very little we can take from it. It's not an official document, it has nothing to do with our law. It was a severance from a king, and it's really the the beginning of it is really not applicable to today, and the rest of it is just a list of demands."

Read the words of Woodrow Wilson and take it from there. Start there. And then look at all of the progressives and what they actually say about the Declaration of Independence. It is a document that they can quote but they don't believe it has any relevance at all. My gosh, they don't even think the Constitution has any relevance! And that one they know as real relevance. They know they've got to go to the Constitution, but they dismiss the Constitution. "Well, the Constitution is wrong. Well, that's just an old dusty document." Why would the Declaration of Independence have any meaning to them? It doesn't! It doesn't. And this is where one of the fundamental splits is in America. This is why there are two Americas right now. Because half of America has been taught that it doesn't really matter, it's all evolving, it's all breathing, we are evolving!

The other half of America was taught reverence. They were taught respect. They were taught that these words were sacred. That all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. But that was those were sacred words! That's the essence of who we are. No. The "Creator" was put there for a reason. Why? If you want to just look at it as a stupid document that was just, oh, it's just 200 years old, it was some OT or something, I don't even know what it was about. You look at it as historic document. Why did they use the word "Creator" there? Why? Because it gave power to the individual to sever themselves from an oppressive government. The government's argument was, "You can't do that. You don't have any right to do that. We're the government. We're the king. You can't sever yourself from it. You are his subject." No. We are subjects of only one king. God is our king. Once you cut God out of it, you become a subject again.

Did you learn that in school? Better yet, are your kids learning that in school? Everybody tries to make it, "Well, look at what a ridiculous, what a stupid who cares and he said Creator." Who cares if he says Creator? First of all, every American should care for a couple of reasons. What was Franklin's definition of the American religion? Oh, yeah, that there is a God, we'll meet Him, he gets kind of testy sometimes, you should serve Him, and the best way to serve Him is to serve your fellow man. Let's concentrate on the whole "He gets testy sometimes." Can we be on the side of God, please? Can we recognize Him in our society? Can we recognize divine providence? If we don't, we shall perish. Period.

 

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"So, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.

Glenn Beck joined Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Thursday night to discuss Visa Inc.'s "horrifying" new plans to flag firearm sales by separately categorizing purchases at gun shops, a move that Glenn aptly described as "the next step in banning guns."

In what's been hailed as a major victory for gun control activists, Visa agreed to adopt the International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) new set of standards by creating a special merchant category code for gun and ammunition sales.

In his appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Glenn shared a letter written by Robert B. Thomson III, a senior vice president at Visa, showing that the credit card company initially pushed back on the ISO's new rules.

“We believe that asking payment networks to serve as a moral authority by deciding which legal goods can or cannot be purchased sets a dangerous precedent,” Thomson wrote in the letter to pro-gun-control lawmakers, including Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Just days later, however, Visa had agreed to comply with the ISO's plan to establish a new merchant category code for gun stores. So why did Visa suddenly flip?

As Glenn explained, it all comes down to pressure from America's largest union-owned bank, the Amalgamated Bank, one of the only unionized banks in the United States and a proud proponent of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) investing.

"This is the next step in banning guns," Glenn asserted.

"It's horrifying!" Tucker responded after several seconds of stunned silence.

"I'm so grateful you did the reporting on this," he told Glenn. "I'm not sure why it falls to you since we have a couple of very large daily newspapers in this country you'd think would want to report this, yet none of them did. So, Glenn Beck did."


On a recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn broke down the details of this latest attack on the Second Amendment and revealed how this is a step toward something even worse than federal gun registration.

Glenn Beck: Here's why Stacey Abrams' fetal heartbeat remarks are hilarious but TERRIFYING

(Left) Image source: video screenshot/ (right) Photo by Marcus Ingram/Getty Images

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has a new pro-abortion conspiracy theory: "There is no such thing as a [fetal] heartbeat at six weeks ... it is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have a right to take control of a woman’s body."

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere agreed Abrams' latest "misinformation" is not just ridiculous but could be dangerous if people are actually willing to believe her.

"If you want to defend abortion, go ahead and defend it. Defend what you're actually doing. Stop denying what is reality," Stu said. "If this is such a great defensible policy, then just come out and defend it, but they never can ... you notice how they can't go to the actual thing they say is so important. They keep defending these other things that aren't true."

Glenn said the pro-choice movement was successful for a long time because most people want the decision to be up to the woman and her doctor and that abortion should be safe, legal, and rare. But when leftists began "celebrating" their abortions or calling for "abortion on demand" at any point in the pregnancy, that's when they start to lose support.

"Because they've celebrated abortion and are losing regular people, you can't put that genie back in the bottle. So, what do they have to do now? They have to take the insane step of discrediting medical machines and technology," Glenn said.

"This is after two years, by the way, of them claiming the biggest scandal in the world was people suggesting the voting machines were hacked — after they previously said that voting machines were hacked in elections they [Democrats] lost," Stu pointed out.

"Honestly, gang, think this through because this is where life gets very scary. This is where you go to authoritarian rule and you can kill millions of people because you're truly now discrediting things that everyone knows is true," Glenn warned.

"So, if you disagree ... you can say that is an evil magic box that has made up sounds in it to convince people. If they will buy that, you're at the Salem witch trials. 'If she doesn't float, she wasn't a witch.' That's what you're looking at right now — and what's frightening is, [Abrams] can say this with a straight face and no one discredits her," he continued.

"You don't think that they can convince those people that you are a terrorist because of the way you vote? [...] You don't think they can convince half the country that you should be eliminated, liquidated, put into a camp, whatever authoritarians love to do? ... We are headed towards dangerous, dangerous times. We better wake up and stand together because this is frightening — it's hilarious — but because people are taking it seriously, it is terrifying," Glenn added.
