    Mexico’s foreign minister says his government will seek the intervention of the United Nations if necessary to defend the human rights of its citizens caught up in the Trump administration’s tough new approach to illegal immigration. Speaking on the eve of Thursday’s meetings with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, Secretary of Foreign Affairs Luis Videgaray said at a meeting with officials from the U.N. human rights office that Mexico “does not have to accept provisions that one government wants unilaterally to impose on another.” “The government of Mexico will act by all means legally...

    Over 300 scientists have requested that President Trump withdraw from the Paris Agreement which is a radical climate change agenda that was put into effect under the Obama Administration according to a report from the Washington Times. Leading the charge from the scientific community against the Paris Agreement is MIT professor emeritus Richard Lindzen who has delivered sharp criticisms about the agreement. Mr. Lindzen challenges the climate change narrative by saying that carbon dioxide is “plant food, not poison.”

    The United Nations needs $4.4 billion by the end of March to prevent catastrophic hunger and famine in South Sudan, Nigeria, Somalia and Yemen, yet just $90 million has been collected so far, Secretary-General António Guterres said Wednesday. With over 20 million people at risk of starvation over the next six months and famine already declared in parts of South Sudan, “we are facing a tragedy,” Guterres said. “We must avoid it becoming a catastrophe.” Convening reporters for a briefing at the U.N. headquarters, Guterres amplified concerns that U.N. officials and humanitarian groups have expressed in recent weeks about the...

    A star is born is our reaction to the first press briefing by President Trump’s new ambassador at the United Nations. The ex-governor of South Carolina was ridiculed by the Left when the president first sent her nomination up to the Hill, owing to her alleged lack of foreign policy chops. She certainly rang the wake up gong for that crowd this morning, after emerging from her first meeting of the Security Council. Tough as nails but with a smile and a layer of Southern charm. The ambassador had just come from the regular monthly Security Council on Middle East...

    UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres thinks he's got terror figured out: apparently, any rule that can be perceived as taking issue with Islam will "fuel terrorism." While not a direct quote, Guterres does say regulations like President Trump's travel ban will create more terrorists: “One of the things that fuel terrorism is the expression in some parts of the world of Islamophobic feelings and Islamophobic policies and Islamophobic hate speeches,” Guterres said at a joint news conference with Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir. “This is sometimes the best support that Daesh can have to make its own propaganda,” Guterres said,...

    The Trump administration sent shockwaves through the U.N. late last week when it took a stance against the appointment of a senior Palestinian official to serve in a top post overseeing Libya. Senior officials at Turtle Bay expressed outrage over the Trump administration's move to block the appointment of former Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad as a special U.N. representative for Libya. The move was widely supported by U.N. members, and, for a time, the Trump administration. Sources inside the White House told the Free Beacon that the move was meant to send a signal to the Palestinians that they...

    The United Nations envoy for gay rights has declared that when there is a clash between homosexual rights and religious liberty it must be recalled that “freedom of expression and religious freedom are not absolute rights and may be limited if necessary.” In a recent public consultation, the UN’s newly appointed “independent expert” on the defense of LGTB rights, Vitit Muntarbhorn, said that negative moral judgments on homosexual activity were a recent phenomenon, stemming from “colonial law.”

    International outrage is growing after the Vatican extended an invitation to population control pundit Paul Ehrlich to speak at a February 27-March 1 workshop on “Biological Extinction.” Ehrlich, a supporter of forced sterilization and forced abortion, has epitomized the “ecologist’s” position for decades in his apocalyptic (and false) predictions about the effects of population growth. Sponsored and organized by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences (PAS) and the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences (PASS), the three-day conference also includes other controversial speakers besides Ehrlich, author of the Population Bomb. Several presenters have similar, if less well-known pedigrees, as proponents of population...

    The United Nations “human rights” apparatus is being accused of, among other abuses, handing to the Communist Chinese dictatorship the names of activists who were set to expose the regime's crimes at a UN review of China's record. One of the dissidents in question ultimately died in detention. At least several other Chinese dissidents whose identities were reportedly provided to the regime by UN officials were also detained ahead of their trips to Geneva, according to reports. And then, making matters worse, the UN “human rights” leadership appears to have retaliated against the UN whistleblower who finally exposed and stopped...

    About 40 potential vaccines for the Zika virus are being tested, but none are likely to be available for women of childbearing age before 2020, the World Health Organization said on Wednesday. WHO director Margaret Chan said the virus, linked to deformations in babies’ heads and brains, remained “firmly entrenched” in large parts of the world. Although progress toward effective prevention has been made, with some drugs now in clinical trials, “a vaccine judged safe enough for use in women of childbearing age may not be fully licensed before 2020,” Chan said. …

But because the United States is the biggest financial supporter of the United Nations and President Trump doesn’t like the global organization, UN Secretary-General António Guterres has to tread carefully.

His spokesman in New York was cautious in comments to the press while Guterres was in Africa as massive demonstrations and most UN member governments...

In her first speech, she indicated the disproportionate contribution by the United States -- 22% of the UN budget and 28% of UN peacekeeping operations -- to the world organization. The UN budget should be subject "strategic cutting," and sometimes withholding of dues. In picturesque language, Haley spoke of the need for a strong U.S. role at the UN.

The new U.N. chief told several hundred people, including Holocaust survivors, at the U.N.’s annual commemoration of the Holocaust that “a ‘new normal’ of public discourse is taking hold, in which prejudice is given a free pass and the door is opened to even more extreme hatred.” Guterres, who as Portugal’s prime minister spurred Parliament in 1996 to revoke a 16th century letter expelling all Jews from the country, said people like him who grew...

    Republican lawmakers on Wednesday introduced yet another bill targeting United Nations funding, this time including a special focus on the U.N. Human Rights Council’s heavily anti-Israel agenda. […] It calls specifically for U.S. funding to be withheld until the president certifies that no U.N. agency or affiliated agency grants official status or recognition to any organization promoting or condoning anti-Semitism. American taxpayers account for 22 percent of the regular budget of the U.N., plus almost 29 percent of the separate peacekeeping budget. The U.S. additionally provides billions of dollars more each year in “voluntary contributions” to a spread of U.N....

    In the opening minutes of her Senate confirmation hearing for United States Ambassador to the United Nations, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley took a stand to say that she would stand up for one of the United States' closest allies to prevent a repeat of the anti-Israel actions of the past. "Nowhere, has the U.N.'s failure been more consistent, and more outrageous, then it's bias against our close ally, Israel," said Haley, noting that Israel is subject to a disproportionate number of negative resolutions. She also pointed out that the U.N.'s Human Rights' Council has also condemned Israel a number...

    Amir's commentary on Sunday's Middle East Peace Conference in Paris "...The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much... (James 5:16) The Paris Middle East Peace Conference ended up as a great disappointment to the Palestinians and a great relief to the Israelis. The closing declaration at the conference in Paris urged both sides to "officially restate their commitment to the two-state solution". It also warned them against taking one-sided actions that could hurt talks, in an apparent reference to Israeli settlement building. But Britain, which attended as an observer, did not back the final communique. A Foreign Office...

    France warned on Sunday of “serious consequences” if Donald Trump moves to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital as representatives from 70 countries met in Paris to try to revive stalled Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts.

Opening the meeting, French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said the international community wanted to “forcefully reiterate that the two-state solution is the only solution possible” to the seven-decade-old conflict. …

    January 15, 2017. 70 Nations are gathering in France to discuss a "Final Solution" for the Israel-Palestinian conflict. And we can promise you, it is not favorable to the Israeli people. Remember, Hitler also proposed a "Final Solution." 'Nuff said. John looks at this issue, along with an analysis of an Iranian-Israeli nuclear conflict, plus another tortorous glimpse into the continuing absurdity of our nation's leaders who are dead set on inflicting as much damage as possible on God's chosen nation. January 20th cannot come soon enough for those who love Israel and her people.

    It’s like an alarm bell in the night for prophecy experts. Seventy nations are meeting in Paris this weekend for a massive summit to coordinate efforts against the Jewish state of Israel. According to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, a statement issued after the conference will demand an end to the “occupation that began in 1967,” a two-state solution and no recognition of Israeli control of Jerusalem. It may even lead to recognition of a Palestinian state. “There’s no telling what this meeting might produce,” said Joseph Farah, founder of WND.com and author of the new prophecy book “The Restitution of...
