Senate to vote on U.N. Treaty: Rights of Persons with Disabilities

Glenn has been trying to take a break and recharge from politics because of how trying he believe the next four years are going to be. But today he had to get back in the game.

Glenn explained to his radio audience this morning that tomorrow the Senate will vote on the U.N.'s Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).

"I urge you to call the Senate and beg them to vote against this," Glenn emphasized. Later adding, "This will impact every parent and every -- every parent of a disabled child and every disabled person in America.  Let alone the world.  It is already passed the Senate committee.  It is about to go to the floor of the Senate and it must be stopped."

Only 34 senators are needed to block the treaty that in Article 18, Section 2 states that all "children with disabilities shall be registered immediately after birth."

"Why are we registering children with disabilities?" Glenn questioned.

Being the father of a disabled child, Glenn also emphasized that America has great programs and opportunities for people with disabilities. If we want to improve what we are doing for these individuals even more, we don't need to go to the U.N..

"Let's have that conversation and fix it ourselves," he emphasized.

The U.N. resolution also states that these children "shall have the right from birth to a name, the right to acquire a nationality, and, as far as possible, the right to know and be cared for by their parents."

While there probably are countries where a baby born with a disability is not provided these things, America is certainly not one of them.

Glenn explained that, "As far as possible the right to know and be cared for by their parents.  What that will be a lawsuit ready to happen.  If you give up a disabled child because you can't handle, I can't be the parent of a disabled child.  For some reason you can't handle it, if you give that child up for adoption to a loving family well you have a right to know and be cared for your parents.  You can sue those parents for not taking care of you."

Essentially a parent who may have given their child up for adoptions would have to take them back and take care of them — or pay up. At least on the surface level, this would make it incredibly hard on an adoptive family or to adopt these children at all.

Glenn characterized the U.N.'s CRPD as being "pro-abortion," comparing it to a story on the UK's healthcare system that Glenn discussed last week where sick and disabled newborn babies are being put on death pathways. And unfortunately for us, this is the same healthcare plan much of Obamacare was modeled after.

"Your friends didn't listen when we had there were death pathways or death panels, and coming this June — it officially starts — the way you get kidneys (for a transplant) is changing. If you need a kidney transplant, good luck with that. You better be the right person and the right age. The elderly are not going to get them. The youth are not going to get them. It's going to be the 40-something that have the best odds putting more into the system than they take," Glenn said.

"We are living in a time now where reality has consequences."

Glenn urged listeners to call their Senator and encourage them to block the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. You can reach the Capitol Switchboard by calling this number: 202-224-3121.

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
