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.

 

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
