GLENN: Could we get verification that it was the Global Poverty Act that has just passed in the Senate committee?
DAN: Yes, that's what it says. It says Obama, Hagel passage of the Global Poverty Act.
That's right, it's CRAZY!!! The government is giving away even more money!!!
GLENN: Okay, this is a great sounding bill, it really is. The Global Poverty Act just passed. It was number 4 on the list of things to do today, on Valentine's Day. My heart to you. It is sponsored by Barack Obama. Now, yesterday so you know, Barack Obama said, and I quote, it's time to stop spending billions of dollars a week trying to put Iraq back together and start spending the money on putting America back together. Got it? He wants to put America back together. That's why he proposed $210 billion yesterday to create jobs, $210 billion to create jobs. That, by the way, is a 2, a 1 followed by 10 zeroes. He wants $150 billion to create 5 million green collar jobs to do things for the environment. $150 billion, green collar jobs. Environmentally friendly energy sources will be found. It will be fantastic. He wants $60 billion to go to a national infrastructure reinvestment bank to rebuild highways, bridges, airports and other projects. He says he can create the -- the Government will generate 2 million jobs. It sounds like work projects. My gosh, how great. It sounds just like the new deal. These two million jobs, many of them will be in construction, which has been hit by the housing crisis. So don't worry. We'll fix it as the Government.
So he's proposing $210 billion yesterday and saying it's time to stop spending billions of dollars trying to put Iraq back together and start spending the money on putting America together. At the same time he proposed the Global Poverty Act. It just today passed the Senate. This is great.
Senator Biden trying to rush the Global Poverty Act through his committee, got it done. It now, if it passes -- it already has passed the House mainly because people didn't read it. If it passes now in the Senate, it will commit the United States to spending .7% of our gross national product on foreign aid, which will amount to a phenomenal $845 billion over what we already spend on foreign aid. But here's the great thing. It doesn't commit it to -- we're not committing to ourselves. We're committing to the United Nations. The United Nations will take the .7% of our GDP and -- wait a minute. That kind of sounds like -- a poverty act. That almost sounds like a global tax. A release from Obama's Senate office says the U.S. joined more than 180 countries with the United Nations Millennium Summit and vowed to reduce global poverty by 2015. But we're halfway there and it's time the United States makes this a priority, to develop and implement a comprehensive strategy to further the United States foreign policy objective in promoting the reduction of global poverty.
Now, the bill has defined the term millennium development goals as the goals set out in the declaration given by the United Nations. Just so you know, those Millennials goals not only care about poor starving children, there's other ideas in there as well. For instance, the declaration commits nations to ban small arms and weapons, ratifying a series of treaties including the International Criminal Court treaty, the Kyoto protocol, the Convention on Biological Diversity. The what? The Convention on Biological Diversity? I don't even know what that means. "We would be committed to the ratification of the convention on the elimination of all forms of discrimination against women." Does that mean the United Nations will suddenly fight Islamic extremism with us! No. No, why would that -- uh-uh. That's just diversity. "Also we would ratify the convention on the rights of a child."
Let me give you a little something on the rights of a child. These are the big Progressive thinkers. Remember Hillary Clinton is a -- she's a new Progressive. In the middle of the early 20th century Progressive. You've got to understand what that means. These are crazy people. Example? Rights of a child, if I may quote Dr. Louise Silverstein. She wrote in the American Psychologist that, quote, "Psychologists must refuse to undertake any more research that looks for the negative consequences of 'other than mother' care." It's almost like it's their global consensus. I can't find anything that says putting your kid in day care would be a bad thing. Sheez. Dr. Silverstein is almost saying in the American Psychologist that psychologists must refuse to take on any research that even looks for anything bad that might happen with child care, taking care of anybody else but mom.
Another famous Progressive philosopher and good friend of Hillary Clinton's, Linda Hershman, said that "women cannot be fully realized human beings if they don't make work a bigger priority than mothering." They're not fully realized human beings. Women are made to feel judged or shamed by their choice of day care. "This negativity will be paid forward in the form of brain-warping stress." Who is making them feel less than adequate for not working? Instead working the hardest job, the one at home. Who's making them feel that way? I know I'm not. Sandra Scarr, possibly the most quoted expert on the "Other than mother" care in America and past president of the American Psychological Society says, and I quote, "However desirable or undesirable the ideal of a full-time maternal care may be, it is now completely unrealistic in the world of the late 20th century. We must and need to create, quoting, a new century's new ideal children. These children will need to learn to love everybody like a family member. Quoting: Multiple attachments to others will become the ideal. Shyness and exclusive maternal attachment will seem dysfunctional. Quoting: New treatments will be developed for children with exclusive maternal attachments, end quote.
Can you see the new Progressive world just on the horizon where our kids can have new therapy if they only recognize mom as their mom. Children, when you have the convention on the rights of the child, children are no longer children. They are no longer yours. This is the design of Progressive fascists from the beginning of last century: Take the children and give them to the state, give them rights, make them a member of the global organization. We have seen it this year in, what was it, Maine or Vermont? I think it was Maine, wasn't it? You know the 11 -- yeah, the 11-year-olds getting the birth control pill.
DAN: Yeah, that was Maine.
GLENN: Okay, Maine. It is illegal for an 11-year-old to have sex, consensual sex, cannot have from an 11-year-old with another 11-year-old. Cannot happen. They cannot have consensual sex yet the school can now prescribe a prescription drug for the kids without telling the parents. Now wait a minute. Hang on just a sec. So wait a minute. So now we're teaching the kids that we don't have to enforce our own laws and that the school nurse is more trustworthy than the parent. We are now teaching that the school nurse, that the Government is much more of a mom or a dad than mom or dad. You can talk to me but you don't have to talk to your mom and dad.
This is not some little thing that you're like, oh, well, that's just crazy talk. This is designed, and it is designed to make your child a product of the state. It is a design to make your child a product of a global government. It is designed, it is designed to make sure that you do not have the power on your child. And what is that war that we're all fighting? Everyone will -- Bloomberg said this week that global warming is worse than terror. I don't know about you, Mike, but so far you can talk about the glaciers melting and the poor little polar bears all you want. So far nobody's dying from global warming. Would you like the number of just those who died in lower Manhattan? Oh, it's a much bigger warning. Yes, yes. Oh, it's much more trouble. Yes, yes. In 1,000 years. Yes.
Meanwhile this year this one might be more important. That's like saying, "Oh, my gosh, I'm on fire and I have cancer. Well, I'm going to keep taking my chemotherapy right now." Put yourself out first! How do you not see this? Not you. I'm sorry. I'm talking to the pinheads that, of course, don't listen to this show.
