    Last Friday, a friend doing research at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta sent me a photo of a display at the CDC’s in-house museum. She thought I’d be interested because it had to do with the cholera epidemic in Haiti, which I lived through at its beginning and have been reporting on ever since.

    Two parties have great plans for this world. One is bent on having a one world government in their control for selfish reasons of great magnitude. That party is made up of New World Order proponents who speak of their goal in glowing terms of peaceful law and order…for them. I have identified them as the Tower of Babel Syndrome, reaching as far back as that episode recorded in Genesis 11. The other party is God, the Sovereign of the Universe, who seems to have a knack for letting mankind do their thing, seemingly, and then turning those activities into...

    The United Nations could take over control of the Internet on October 1, when the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) passes from U.S. administration to the control of a multilateral body, most likely the United Nations International Telecommunications Union (ITU). While the administration and its defenders have denied that the UN will have authority over ICANN, the Wall Street Journal‘s L. Gordon Crovitz points out that ICANN will need to be run by a state agency in order to retain its antitrust exemption, which makes it almost certainly that the UN will step in to take control.

    Saharan Africa loses around $95 billion a year due to gender inequality, jeopardizing the continent’s efforts for economic growth, according to a U.N. report launched Sunday. Deeply-rooted structural obstacles such as unequal distribution of resources and political power, combined with social institutions that sustain inequality are holding back African women, and the continent, said the Africa Human Development Report 2016 by U.N. Development Program. If gender gaps are closed in labor markets, education and health, it will accelerate the eradication of poverty and hunger, said UNDP Administrator Helen Clark. The report was launched during the two-day Tokyo International Conference of...

In the letter, the UN specifically referred to the Israeli city of Beersheba by an Arabic name. The letter sent earlier this week cited Article 105 of the UN Charter, which Israel adopted in 1949, stating that Borsh, as a UN employee, "enjoys immunity from personal arrest or detention, as well as immunity from legal process in respect...

About 900 suspected drug traffickers have been killed since he came to power after winning the election on May 9. Duterte on Friday denied that the...

Fourth World Conference on Women. It was 1995, and it had been a bruising first few years in the White House: Troopergate, Travelgate, Whitewater. Not to mention the failure of her own high-profile efforts — unprecedented for a first lady — to reform the nation's health care system. Even her trip to China provoked controversy. There were objections in some quarters to a first lady wading into...

    In the fall of 2010, months after a devastating earthquake struck Haiti, a new disaster began: a cholera outbreak that killed thousands of people and continues to sicken people across the country. Experts determined that the source of the disease was a U.N. peacekeeping camp. And now, nearly six years later, the United Nations has admitted it played some role in the deadly outbreak.

    The Obama administration is demanding that Congress immediately approve new tax funding for Zika research, but has so far failed to mention that Obama already diverted $500 million worth of infectious disease research funds to illegally finance the United Nations “climate” bureaucracy's slush fund. In the meantime, to deal with the alleged budget shortfall caused by the previous illegal diversion of funds, the White House has diverted tax money from other programs to pay for Zika research. But the supposed problem is entirely self-inflicted. In March, after Congress refused to approve funding for the UN's global-warming agenda — funding that...

Australia has inked a free trade agreement with China, its biggest trading partner, which makes its move of disturbing the South China Sea waters surprising to many. Australia is a unique country with an inglorious history. It was at first an offshore prison of the UK and then became its colony, a source of raw materials,...

Indeed, many UN entities “continue to remain in a state of near denial with regard to fraud,” the investigators reported.

The controversial worldwide initiative, which aims to criminalize spanking and smacking as disciplinary tools, among other things, is part of the UN's Agenda 2030, also known as the “Sustainable Development Goals.” Essentially, the UN is betting that framing the assault on families as a bid to end “violence against children” — something nobody in their right mind would oppose — will make it easier to pursue the...

Iran’s missile program is not linked to the nuclear deal and does not conflict with the U.N. Security Council resolution endorsing the agreement, he said. “Iran’s missile program has aimed at defense and it is not designed...

Hillary and Bill’s Foundation have been on board and wielding it in lock step! Not only the Wildland’s but the entire agenda of one world everything. Please read the following from a...

    During the Bretton Woods Conference, in 1944, Lord Halifax is said to have “whispered to Lord Keynes: ‘It’s true: they have the money bags but we have all the brains.’” By “they,” Halifax meant the Americans. His frustration with the American mind—often prosaic and anti-intellectual—during the critical Bretton-Woods negotiations seems as valid today. As odious as Britain’s elites are; boy, are they cleverer than ours. Take the impromptu interview, on June 28, which Richard Quest, CNN’s imported British broadcast journalist, conducted with Nigel Farage, leader of the UK Independence Party. Farage had emerged exhilarated from the coven that is the...

    What a strange coincidence? Former UN official John Ashe “accidentally” crushed his own throat and died a week before he was scheduled to testify against the Clintons and Democrat Party. Zero Hedge reported: Perhaps the most notable is Vince Foster. Foster was a partner at Clinton’s law firm and knew the inner workings of the Clinton Machine. Police ruled that death a suicide, though it is often noted that Foster may have been suicided. Now, another official has found himself on the wrong end of the Clintons. That John Ashe was a former President of the United Nations General Assembly...

    The nature of terrorism, including the increased radicalization of individuals through social media, has changed over the last decade and violent extremism can only be eradicated by including preventive measures, the United Nations chief said in a report to the 193-member General Assembly. Ban Ki-moon’s study calls on member states to employ conflict resolution, empower youth, develop educational opportunities and embrace human rights in the battle against terrorism. The report is part of the General Assembly’s two-year review that ends Friday of the U.N.’s 10-year-old global counter-terrorism strategy. “We need to pay more attention to why individuals are attracted to...
  • 'Quartet' report: Israeli settlements eroding viability of 2 state solution [Zech 1-2, 6]

    Israel should stop building settlements, denying Palestinian development and designating land for exclusive Israeli use that Palestinians seek for a future state, the Middle East peace "Quartet" recommended in a draft of an eagerly awaited report seen by Reuters. The draft report by the Quartet countries sponsoring the stalled Middle East peace process - the United States, Russia, the European Union and the United Nations - said the Israeli policy "is steadily eroding the viability of the two state solution." "This raises legitimate questions about Israel's long term intentions which are compounded by the statements of some Israeli ministers that...

    The article, written by Anthony Burke and Stefanie Fishel, professors who study international relations and gender studies respectively, concludes massively empowering the U.N. is the best way to slow global warming. “A ‘crimes against biodiversity’ law would act like a [crime against humanity] for the environment,” Burke and Fishel’s article states. “Unlike international laws that punish genocide, our suggested law would not require proof of intent to commit the crime, but merely a strong link between the activity and the destruction of biodiversity or industrial and systemic harm to animals.”

    The U.N.’s top human rights body has decided to appoint an expert to monitor violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. In a narrow 23-18 vote with six abstentions, the Human Rights Council called for the creation of a three-year position for an independent expert to look into wrongdoing against gays, lesbians and transgender people. The expert is expected to be appointed at the next meeting of the 47-member, Geneva-based body in September. …

    The United States Forest Service severely damaged a forest road and trail in Northwestern Idaho earlier this month, raising serious questions about the agency’s ability to care for federally-managed lands. During the first weekend in June, several members of Northwestern Gold Prospectors Association (NWGPA) planned to attend a gathering to prospect private claims in the Bedrock Gulch and Eagle Creek areas. When the prospectors arrived, Forest Road 152 was blocked with cement barricades and hundreds of felled trees. ... Photographs from that day show large logs laid crosswise and laterally on the trail, covered with hundreds of large pine branches...

    'Tactical vehicles with bulletproof glass? What ever could those be for?' The sight of trucks bearing the United Nations logo being carted on Virginia's highways has set some Internet bloggers asking why - but as one interested reader posted in the comment section of a story about the curious observance: These trucks are made in America and need to be transported for shipment to U.S. seaports. But first, the story. In a piece entitled, "UN military vehicles seen rolling down Virginia interstate," American Mirror writer Olaf Ekberg asked: "What were United Nations vehicles doing in Virginia! ...

    In a foreign policy speech in Hamburg on Monday, Steinmeier announced that Germany would campaign for a non-permanent seat in 2019 and 2020. The country last held a Security Council seat from 2011 to 2012. Diplomats will seek support for Germany's candidacy before an election is held in mid 2018. Germany's application would require approval from at least two thirds of the 193 states in the UN General Assembly to be successful.
