UN Meeting This Week Means It’s Time to Reform Corruption

What’s happening?

President Donald Trump is meeting this week with world leaders in his first appearance before the U.N. General Assembly. It’s an opportunity for him to persuade other countries to pressure North Korea with sanctions and push for other U.S. interests.

Key issues and players:

A big item on the agenda is U.N. reform. The U.S. foots a big chunk of the bill to fund U.N. efforts, which are often hurting people instead of helping because the U.N. has long been plagued with corruption, fraud and mismanagement.

Two leaders who won’t be there this week are China’s President Xi Jinping and Russia’s President Vladimir Putin.

Glenn’s take:

“Follow the money; follow the power,” Glenn said this morning on “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.” Russia and China have no interest in U.N. reform because the current system benefits them too much.

GLENN: New York City is being invaded. By diplomats. It's being invaded. 193 member states of the united nation and the chaos and the confusion that they bring to the city of New York is an unintentional metaphor for what's going on inside of the United Nations building. You know, the United Nations was this grand experiment. We're going to heal the world. Bring everybody together.

Does anybody have any confidence that the UN is going to do that? I mean, did we we really ever have it? Wishes were dreams. And, you know, pigs were horses. But anything more than a grand wish or hope? Billions of dollars pour into this international organization, and yet they rank near dead last in every category they're supposed to lead. Have you ever been to a UN refugee camp? They are awful. They are full of despair. People sit literally just waiting to rape or die.

Mercury One was thrilled to be able to close two of these despair camps down in the Middle East in the past couple of months. Among eight agencies, the US is ranked near the worst in the world: fraud, corruption, mismanagement. It follows the UN wherever they go. UN peacekeepers caused a cholera outbreak in 2010. Their employees have been accused of sexual harassment and exploitation in over ten separate countries. On top of that, UN personnel cannot be sued in national courts, arrested, or prosecuted for their actions.

So President Trump is going to meet with them this week. Today, he's actually meeting with representatives of 120 other member states that say, "We've had enough. We've just had enough." They're all pushing for long overdue reform. But two nations are curiously missing. Russia and China, they're refusing to attend. Why is that?

Why wouldn't two of the five permanent members of the UN's security council be interested in reforming the Dumpster fire that is the UN?

Follow the money. Follow the power. The United States cuts an $8 billion check to the United Nations every single year. We supply nearly 25 percent of the entire global budget. And they say America isn't exceptional. Of course, China and Russia want the status quo. Look at what they get in return: The UN provides them a check on US power through their security council veto. It costs them little money in return. And they make us pay disproportionately, all for them doing it to us.

May I suggest that all thinking human being -- anybody who is actually -- for instance, if I may point out Bono came to the idea that some of these systems that he has been propping up just don't work.

Maybe it's time for bankrolling a corrupt, failing, and all powerful organization like the United Nations is over. And the time for reform is right now.

LIVE NOW: Golden State Gulag: California's pursuit of Communism is a WARNING for America

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety." Children have been brainwashed with racist critical race theory. And yet, Democrats want to use California as the test model for the entire country. Your state and your town are next. They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

Dave Rubin, host of BlazeTV's "The Rubin Report," moved to Los Angeles about a decade ago. In that time, he's watched it descend into absolute chaos. While most of his news and comedy friends have fled, Dave tells Glenn Beck why he's riding it out and how the rest of the country must save itself from progressive policies and "evil" governors like Gavin Newsom — or else the great American experiment will be over.

4 QUESTIONS the DHS must answer regarding their domestic ‘terror’ warning

The DHS recently released a rare terror bulletin, warning Americans of an increasing threat: domestic extremists. But if the Biden administration believes there's a grave danger to the American people, WHY are they not providing us with the information we need to protect ourselves? Or is it all due to politics? Glenn has four questions he believes our officials in DC must answer. For example, WHY are the Capitol rioters being treated like prisoners at Guantanamo?

Big Tech now censors the stories of WW2 VETS too?

Rishi Sharma, founder of Heroes of the Second World War, has spent years interviewing as many World War II veterans that he can. His life passion, he says, is making sure these heroes' stories are recorded and preserved so future generations will never forget their sacrifices. But — perhaps unsurprisingly — Big Tech now stands in the way. Rishi describes to Glenn alleged censorship he believes his YouTube page — which contains many of these WW2 vets' stories — has experienced in the last year. "Makeup tutorials get a billon views, but the men who fought for our freedom...why can't they get the same attention?"

Glenn Beck CALLS OUT companies working with China as HORRIFIC new details emerge about concentration camps

An upcoming book, "The Chief Witness: Escape from China's Modern-Day Concentration Camps," details one woman's "fight to survive" inside one of China's 380 unspeakably horrific concentration camps.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" this week, Glenn asked why, after seeing horrors like this in history before, aren't we taking acting to stop this? Companies like Apple, Google, and Facebook not only continue to work with China, but have sometimes even given the Chinese Communist Party the tools it needs to spy on its people.

Glenn read an excerpt from the book in which co-author Sayragul Sauytbay describes the concentration camp where she was incarcerated for the "crime" of being one of the China's ethnic minorities and the shocking details of what she witnessed and experienced as a prisoner.

"I can't tell you how disgusted I am. ... It means nothing to say 'never forget' if you won't talk about the things that lead to the Holocaust. 'Never forget' doesn't mean just remember their names and remember what happened, but look at the seeds that are being planted today so we don't go down that road," Glenn said after reading the disturbing details.

"How do you make sure that that doesn't happen, if you won't talk about the seeds that are being planted? It's too late when the tree has its vines all around your neck. It's too late. Silence in the face of evil, is evil itself. Not to stand, is to stand. The world is becoming more and more deaf to evil. It is all becoming perverted. What is happening in China is evil, and I don't care if it's Disney, or Apple, or Facebook, or anybody else that is doing business in China ... you're part of the problem," he went on to say.

"We must stand together ... to stand for the Jewish people. To stand for the Chinese Uighurs. To stand against another coming Holocaust, wherever it might happen in the world. To stand against this evil of critical race theory. It is evil."
