    Mexican presidential candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) called for mass immigration to the United States during a speech Thursday, declaring it a “human right” for all North Americans. “And soon, very soon — after the victory of our movement — we will defend all the migrants in the American continent and all the migrants in the world,” Obrador said, adding that immigrants “must leave their towns and find a life in the United States.” He then declared it as “a human right we will defend,” eluniversal.com reports. While the election is not until July 1, Obrador is by far...

    A report published by Reuters says the U.S. will finally withdraw completely from the misnamed U.N. Human Rights Commission. A diplomatic source told Reuters that the withdrawal was "not a question of if but of when." The Hill: U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley has clashed with the council over its treatment of Israel and has repeatedly voted against U.N. measures that were critical of that country. Most recently, the U.S. and Australia were only two members to vote against a proposal to investigate Israel's alleged use of excessive force in Gaza. Haley has criticized the council over what she called a "chronic...

    Yesterday ahead of President Trump's meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, NBC News reported the issue of human rights would not be discussed at the summit as an issue. U.S. won't bring up human rights at North Korea summit, two administration officials say. https://t.co/01Rkpik6Nb— NBC News (@NBCNews) June 11, 2018 But it turns out, the issue was discussed and will be again in the future."It was discussed.  It will be discussed more in the future -- human rights," Trump said. "It was discussed. It was discussed relatively briefly compared to denuclearization. Well, obviously, that’s where we started and...

    Zeid is not the voice of the people of true democracies such as Israel and the United States. He is nothing more than an unaccountable UN bureaucrat whose hypocritical unsolicited opinions on “international law” are of no consequence United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein accused Israel of using “excessive force” in dealing with Hamas-led demonstrations near and along the border fence in Gaza. “Every week, we witness instances of use of lethal force against unarmed demonstrators,” Zeid said last Friday. He claimed, without any first-hand knowledge of actual conditions on the ground, that many of...

A Chronology of Human Rights Violations of the United States in 2017 was also released by the office Tuesday.

    Citizens from more than 30 countries around the world appealed to the UN Secretary-General to suspend UN Human Rights Commissioner Zaid Ra'ad al-Hussein after calling Judea and Samaria communities a "war crime", following the latest report he issued regarding the pace of construction for Jews in Judea and Samaria. "While tens of thousands of people are being slaughtered in Syria, and while women's rights are being disregarded in Iran, the Human Rights Commissioner is issuing a report on the settlement movement in Israel, which details construction information, calling it a war crime", mentioned the letter. "The Commissioner' s obsession with...

    February 26, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Hillary Rodham Clinton criticized President Donald Trump’s State Department on Twitter last week for a recent move to trim abortion language in its annual global human rights report. “Women’s rights are human rights,” Clinton tweeted. “That was a radical idea back in 1995. It shouldn’t still be two decades later.” Clinton was sharing a Politico report on a State Department order to cut back portions in a forthcoming annual report on global human rights.

    A Turkish court on Wednesday sentenced Omer Faruk Gergerlioglu, one of the country’s leading human rights advocates, to two-and-a-half years in jail for a 2016 Twitter post advocating peace. A former head of Mazlumdar, a prominent Turkish human rights group, Gergerlioglu was sentenced for “disseminating terrorist propaganda”, a charge he denies.The 53-year-old human rights activist was sentenced for a message he posted on Twitter on October 9, 2016, when he downloaded a photograph of a World Peace Day demonstration featuring Kurdish mothers protesting behind two symbolic coffins, one draped in the Turkish flag and the other in a Kurdistan Workers’...

    The US-Turkey relations have become strained in the recent period due to the Turkish military intervention in Syria’s Afrin, an anti-Kurdish operation under the pretext of fighting terror – known as Operation Olive Branch. The US Congress is preparing sanctions against Turkey as part of the 2012 Magnitsky Act. The sanctions might target certain ministers and politicians of Turkey, Hurriyet reports. “The US government acknowledges that necessary means must be taken to stop Turkey, but at the same time the US tries to prevent the possible clash of the Turkish and American troops in the Syrian territory”, Hurriyet said. The...

    Youtube video 22:55 minutes in length. Well organized, informative review of the 13 names listed on the Annex attached to President Trump's Executive Order dated December 21, 2018. The vlogger concludes by offering his opinion that the EO Annex appears to identify 13 individuals which serve to indirectly target Clinton (i.e., Clinton was the original target but Trump intentionally veiled his target with the names on the list).

    So, I bet you’ve heard about the airline incident between a woman and Texas Democratic Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee. Katie wrote about it. In all, Jean-Marie Simon was booted from her first class seat on a United flight for Lee. Simon was obviously upset, voiced her objections, and was even threatened with being forced off the flight. She was eventually given a $500 voucher for her pre-paid seat and relocated to economy class. She alleges that United gave the Texas Democrat preferential treatment. The saga got even worse when Lee accused Simon of racism regarding this matter. I noted that this...
  • Trump's human trafficking EO ignored by media

    A few days ago president Trump issued an executive order to block the property of about 40 individuals and organizations involved in human trafficking. He accompanied this executive order with a national state of emergency. Several people from his list seem like pretty important individuals, like the former president of Gambia, the daughter of Uzbekistan, as well as a few well-respected billionaires. The post on Free Republic that mentioned this generated almost 450 comments. To me, that is proof this is a newsworthy enough story, yet the only news outlet that mention a peep about this is Politico. Why the...

    The world's worst crooks and killers should be running scared. The law and the executive order President Donald Trump issued make it much easier for the U.S. government to single out and punish egregious cases of abuse. Included in the list were Artem Chayka, the son of the prosecutor general of Russia; Gao Yan, a senior Chinese security official; and Maung Maung Soe, who oversaw Burmese military atrocities against ethnic Rohingya. "Today, the United States is taking a strong stand against human rights abuse and corruption globally by shutting these bad actors out of the U.S. financial system," Treasury Secretary...

    In the 1990s, I and my distinguished colleague Charlotte Ponticelli had the privilege of working with Dr. Clyde Snow, one of the world’s foremost experts in forensic anthropology, who played an instrumental role in bringing justice to Argentina by uncovering the mass graves left behind by the country’s “Dirty War.” His actions and investigation helped uncover the truth about what was an incredibly deadly series of crimes carried out over nearly a decade. Holding the regime in Argentina accountable set a valuable precedent and demonstrated the global community’s commitment to upholding justice and human rights, which must be maintained today....

    CAIRO (Reuters) - Six Egyptian men arrested for “promoting sexual deviancy” and “debauchery” on social media will be subjected to anal examinations ahead of their Oct. 1 trial, Amnesty International said on Saturday. Their arrest is part of a wider crackdown against homosexuality that started last week when a group of people were seen raising a rainbow flag at a concert, a rare public show of support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights in the conservative Muslim country. At least 11 people have since been arrested, Amnesty said, and one man has been sentenced to six years in jail...
