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.

The Uvalde shooting & the REAL 'replacement' theory that threatens America

In the wake of the horrific Buffalo shooting, the left-wing media tried to paint all conservatives as subscribers to “replacement theory” — the idea that immigrants are taking over to such an extent that they will destroy white Western civilization. Of course, no serious conservative believes in this ugly, racist, dangerous ideology, but there is a ton of ACTUAL replacement going on, and it has nothing to do with immigration or racism.

What we saw yesterday in Uvalde, Texas, is more dark horrific evidence of the only replacement theory that ultimately matters because it affects everything. We’ve replaced God in society. Glenn argues it’s why gun control is ultimately useless — even though he completely understands our human impulse to DO something. While our culture has replaced God for rot, the Biden White House and Democrats are also working overtime to replace key elements of American political, legal, economic, and cultural life.

BlazeTV host Mark Levin of “LevinTV” tells Glenn why Media Matters' latest hit job on him over his Uvalde coverage is pathetic. “Stop pushing God out of the public square” is not a radical concept to help prevent evil from taking hold in our schools. He also takes on the Democrats’ attempts to destroy the Supreme Court, voting rights, and the separation of powers.

BlazeTV host Allie Beth Stuckey of “Relatable” tells Glenn why she believes the Uvalde shooting reveals how we are failing young men in this country and what we must do to stop the replacement theory that threatens to keep an entire generation from becoming a benefit to society.

The Washington Post forgot its OWN NAME

Apparently, self-awareness is in short supply in Washington. But we already knew that. The Washington Post must not have got the memo however. Their recent op-ed about the need for George Washington University to change its name can't be serious, though — can it?

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

'White Knights' ROB Black People of Their Honor | Ep 147

Two years after the death of George Floyd, are America and the black community actually better off? When Delano Squires first looked at Black Lives Matter’s principles, he realized that they weren’t at all what he believes in: nothing about God or families and plenty about the opposite. Now, as a contributor to BlazeTV’s "Fearless with Jason Whitlock" and a scholar at 1776 Unites, he’s unafraid to call it as it is: Leftists are robbing black people of their dignity and honor and treating them like children. Meanwhile, self-sufficient black men are painted as white supremacists. This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Delano breaks down how far America has gone — in the wrong direction — since the riots of 2020 and why the abortion debate is a clear example. And he explains why faith in God, not the “Biden blackness” of the Democratic Party, is the true solution.

Was Elon Musk just RED PILLED?

It looks like Elon Musk was red-pilled yesterday. He came out and said he always voted for the Democrats, mainly because he thought they were the nice guys. Boy, did he wake up and he even said that he would be voting all Republican now. Elon, I would like to red pill you again. I wish we had faith in the Republican Party, but it's better than voting and pushing the garbage from the extreme radicalized left.
