  • Top University Stole Millions From Taxpayers By Faking Global Warming Research

    A global warming research center at the London School of Economics got millions of dollars from UK taxpayers by taking credit for research it didn’t perform, an investigation by The Daily Mail revealed. The UK government gave $11 million dollars to the Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy (CCCEP) in exchange for research that the organization reportedly never actually did. Many papers CCCEP claimed to have published to get government money weren’t about global warming, were written before the organization was even founded, or were written by researchers unaffiliated with CCCEP. The government never checked CCCEP’s supposed publication lists,...

    Many articles in the U.N. Universal Declaration of Human Rights were rejected by the leaders of 57 Islamic countries, who formed their own group called the OIC – Organization of Islamic Cooperation.

    The radical report, titled ‘Replacement Migration: Is It a Solution to Declining and Ageing Populations?’ advocates an influx of immigrants as a means of supporting an ageing population. It projects that over the next 50 years the population of several western countries, including the UK, Germany, France and Italy, will steadily decline unless measures are taken to reverse the trend. Penned in 2001, the report has resurfaced in the wake of the migrant crisis sweeping Europe. It reads: “The new challenges of declining and ageing populations will require comprehensive reassessments of many established policies and programmes, including those relating to...

    A central theme of “Shall Not Be Infringed” is that, despite her efforts to soften her express words, President Hillary Clinton would take steps to do precisely what candidate Hillary Clinton has vowed to do – undermine the fundamental Supreme Court ruling in the 2008 District of Columbia v. Heller opinion, that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms. Second Amendment supporters and opponents alike understand that if you overturn that underpinning of Heller, you open the door for all manner of government actions to not just “chip away” at how an individual chooses to...

    Theresa May’s first EU summit was never going to be easy but Thursday’s encounter in Brussels may be a thoroughly bleak affair now that fellow leaders feel she has taken a hard line on breaking away from the European Union. The British prime minister caught the other 27 off guard on Oct. 2 when, having campaigned to stay in the bloc, she thrilled her Conservatives’ conference in Birmingham with rousing pledges to start Brexit talks by March, curb immigration and reject EU court rulings — a recipe, EU leaders said, for "hard Brexit".

    Death sentences for terrorism are often handed down after unfair trials by special courts that disrespect human rights and the rule of law, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said Monday in remarks commemorating World Day Against the Death Penalty. While 65 countries retain the death penalty for terrorism-related offenses, experience shows that executing “terrorists” mostly fuels propaganda for their movements by creating perceived martyrs, Ban said. “The death penalty is a cruel and inhumane practice. It has no place in the 21st Century,” Ban said. “To be legitimate and effective, counter-terror measures, like all security operations, must be anchored in...

    International governments have made a power play against Donald Trump by ratifying an international climate deal earlier than expected, effectively preventing him from “canceling” the deal as he has promised to do. The European Union’s Tuesday decision to join the Paris climate deal will push the deal over the threshold for ratification; it will formally take effect in 30 days. That means Trump, should he be elected president in November, could not “cancel” or renegotiate the terms of the agreement. President Obama committed the United States to reduce its emissions by 26 percent to 28 percent by 2025 as part...

    In a September 22 address to the UN General Assembly, the Vatican's Secretary of State offered an overview of the Holy See's concerns about world affairs. Cardinal Pietro Parolin opened his remarks by welcoming the approval by international leaders of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris accord on climate change. He went on to say, however, that these goals cannot realistically be reached without significant changes in the world's economic systems. Specifically, he spoke of the "ecological debt" that wealthy nations should pay to the needy, and the need for "alternative financial systems capable of ensuring that financial resources...

    ( – The United Nations' human rights chief on Monday doubled down on his criticism of political leaders who are leery of admitting refugees due to security concerns, labeling them “racists and xenophobes” and saying they would face the judgment of humanity. Addressing a U.N. summit on refugees and migrants in New York – one day before President Obama hosts another one – U.N. Human Rights Commissioner Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein took direct aim at what have become regular targets of his over recent months. “The bigots and deceivers, in opposing greater responsibility-sharing [relating to admitting refugees from conflicts like...

    UNITED NATIONS (AP) — In a closing dispatch to the world he's tried to shape, President Barack Obama conceded Tuesday that the United States and other major powers have only limited ability to solve the world's most profound problems, including Syria's civil war. He lamented the "cycles of conflict and suffering" that seem to kick in every time humanity finally seems to be getting it right. "Perhaps that's our fate," Obama said in his last speech to the U.N. General Assembly. Four months before leaving office, Obama called for a "course correction" to ensure that the unstoppable forces of globalization...

    President Obama advocated that nations will have to give up some of their autonomous freedoms for international cooperation to achieve security on Tuesday during his speech to the United Nations General Assembly. Obama told the audience how he believes global security can be achieved with the help of international institutions like the U.N. In his remarks, Obama said “powerful nations” like the United States will have to accept constraints and give up some of their freedoms. The president acknowledged that he has been criticized by his own citizens for this belief but he remains convinced he is right. Obama also...

    UNITED NATIONS — There wasn’t much diplomatic about it: President Barack Obama and United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon repeatedly denounced Donald Trump and his brand of politics here as they addressed leaders from around the world Tuesday. Three days after declaring that Trump’s candidacy is a threat to American democracy, Obama said that while globalization has its downsides, the wrong response comes “more often from the right” to produce an “aggressive nationalism, a crude populism…which seeks to restore what they believe was a better, simpler age free of outside contamination.” He didn’t say Trump’s name. He didn’t say Make...

    The Arms Trade Treaty went into effect on Christmas Eve 2014, but the administration has never submitted the treaty to the Senate for ratification, where it would require 67 senators voting for it to pass. (Photo: Paul Martinka / Splash News/Newscom) The Obama administration upped its commitment to get the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty ratified, a tall order since a bipartisan coalition of 50 senators have already said they oppose the gun treaty Secretary of State John Kerry signed three years ago. Second Amendment advocates are concerned the treaty could provide an international law rationalization for a national...

It will be the last time as President he will be able to use the UN backdrop to apologize for America, chastise those who dare disagree with him, and lie with impunity – for the greater good of course.It will be Barry’s last chance to use the UN pulpit to preach that terrorism is just a “war of narratives” and explain why we need to welcome even more “refugees” to our shores. Because, after all, they...
