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.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."
