U.N. condemns Romney's policy on torture, will monitor election polls for suppression of minority voters

Tonight, Mitt Romney needs to go out and verify to the American people and verify that the country is much less safe than it was four years ago - and Glenn think that shouldn't be too hard to do. The Muslim Brotherhood is gaining power in the Middle East, the President of Egypt is praying for the destruction of Israel and the West, Libya and Syria are in chaos. Wars in the Middle East are as deadly and costly as ever. And nobody in his administration will even acknowledge the danger of radicalized Islam by name. Even worse, Obama's favorite organization, the United Nations, has come out and condemned Romney's stance on torture.

U.N. official Ben Emmerson has come out and said that a Romney presidency would be a democratic mandate for torture.

TheBlaze reports:

The United Nations and its affiliates have been weighing in on U.S. elections with increasing frequencylately– and it’s understandable, considering a wildly disproportionate amount of its funding comes from the United States.  In the most recent event, the U.N. special rapporteur on counter-terrorism and human rights raised what he considers to be the “alarming” implications of a Republican victory.

Ben Emmerson lamented Mitt Romney’s position on waterboarding: “There is no doubt that the Romney administration would be able to claim…a democratic mandate for torture…That would put Romney as the first world leader in history to be able to claim [that].”

While he also objected to the secrecy surrounding President Obama’s drastically expanded use of drones, he apparently considers them a preferable alternative.

Emmerson  has apparently never heard Romney speak on his stance on torture, as Romney has previously said, "“But I do not believe, as a presidential candidate that it’s wise for us to describe precisely what techniques we’ll use in interrogating people. I oppose torture. I would not be in favor of torture in any way, shape or form. As I just said, as a presidential candidate, I don’t think it is wise for us to describe specifically which measures we would and would not use. And that is something I would like to receive the counsel of not only Senator McCain but of a lot of other people. And there are people who for many, many years get the information we need to make sure to protect our country."

"How is that a democratic mandate for torture?" Pat asked.

"Could it be possible that Emerson and the worthless worms at the United Nations are starting to feel as though that the gravy train may have run out of track?" Glenn asked. "The United States of America now pays 22% of the UN's core budget,  $14 billion, and 25% of its system wide spending comes from us.  And the UN total spending tops $25 billion.  Could it be that the UN understands the best friend they ever had in the White House was Barack Hussein Obama?  A President who considers himself to be a citizen of the world?"

"The whole charade with the UN has gone on for far too long," Glenn said. "The UN has no jurisdiction in the United States. But left wing observers, left wing organizations have invited the UN observers to our polling places?"

TheBlaze explains, "The Hill is reporting that The Organization for Security and Cooperation (OSCE), a United Nations partner on democracy and human rights projects, will be deploying several dozen observers across the United States amid concerns of voter suppression.  Alerted by left-leaning civil rights groups, they are apparently on the lookout for “systematic” efforts to prevent minorities from voting for President Obama."

Glenn said people need to get out and vote to ensure there is a landslide, otherwise he fears that the left will try to claim the right stole the election from Obama without a clear mandate victory. Glenn explained he was concerned such outcry could cause chaos.

 

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
