    Donald Trump, regarding the United Nations' remodeling plan: Senator, congratulations. You've got a mess on your hands. The Senate International Security Subcommittee, chaired by Oklahoma Republican Tom Coburn, was holding a hearing yesterday into the proposed $1.5 billion refurbish project of the United Nations building. One of the star witnesses was The Donald. Just on pure theater, it was fun to watch. In case you missed it, here's Trump's testimony. It's long, but I promise you it's worth it:

    Under the guise of fighting “violence against children,” the Obama administration has joined forces with socalist foreign regimes and various United Nations agencies in a “global partnership” to wage war on parental rights. 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...

    The international arbitration tribunal, constituted under Annex VII to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (“UNCLOS”), issued its final Award on July 12th in the so-called “compulsory” arbitration instituted by the Republic of the Philippines against the People’s Republic of China. The Philippines had sought rulings on a number of issues, including the source of the parties’ rights and obligations in the South China Sea and the effect of UNCLOS on China’s claims to historic rights within its claimed ‘nine-dash line.’ The tribunal’s decision found in the Philippines’ favor on these two key issues, and most...

    President Obama addressed diplomats at a reception Friday, the day after a jihadist killed 84 people in France, and said the United Nations’ plan for sustainable development and global unity is all that’s needed to defeat the terrorists. Obama called for “a new sustainable development set of goals to end extreme poverty and promote health and education and equality for all people, including women.” That was a direct reference to the U.N.’s new “2030 Agenda,” in which the new sustainable development goals or SDGs are being promoted as the answer to all of mankind’s problems — including the eradication of...

That decision would be made by Australia’s next cabinet, which will be named Monday following July 2 elections. …

    Iran said Saturday it will continue its ballistic missile program, after the U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon said that the missile tests aren’t in the spirit of the country’s landmark nuclear deal with world powers. “Iran will strongly continue its missile program based on its own defense and national security calculations,” foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi said in comments published on the ministry’s website. 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...

    If Ms Figueres were selected, she would be a striking departure from the eight men who have run the UN so far. She is widely credited with helping to re-energise global climate action after the disastrous failure of a 2009 Copenhagen meeting aimed at sealing the accord finally struck in Paris. She previously spent many years representing Costa Rica in climate negotiations but has little of the broader foreign policy experience held by most UN secretaries-general. Ms Figueres conceded on Thursday she faced a “learning curve” on peace and security issues but her recent experience in shepherding through the Paris...

    In addition to the devastating blow dealt to globalism generally, the historic British “Brexit” vote to exit the European Union could have far-reaching implications for the United Nations “climate” regime. Concocted in Paris last year by the UN and its member governments, the controversial deal is unprecedented in terms of its full-blown promotion of regional governments, such as the EU, as crucial players in imposing the international agenda. But with Brexit, that gamble has turned against the globalists, and now they are scrambling to save face amid a victorious “leave” campaign led largely by climate skeptics and realists. Whether the...

    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...

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.

    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...

    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 expert is expected to be appointed at the next meeting of the 47-member, Geneva-based body in September. …

    Who picks the Syrian refugees that resettle in the U.S.? Homeland Security? No, the United Nations, in concert with a global Islamist group. And they're sending "more than 15,000," not the widely reported 10,000. In fact, Washington has no role in selecting the thousands of Syrian refugees coming to your hometown. The U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is really behind the effort, and he's referred an additional 5,000-plus Syrian nationals here. The UNHCR is working "hand in hand" with an international Islamist group of 57 Muslim nations — the Organization of Islamic Cooperation — whose founding charter seeks to...

In the explosive documentary released late last month by a pro-Israel watchdog group, schools run by the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) are even exposed offering military-style training to young children. That training, combined with a curriculum that teaches fervent hatred of Jews, is a recipe for disaster, the producer said, citing the recent wave of attacks.

    Before answering the title question, let's look at a few facts drawn, for the most part, from an episode on Saul Alinsky and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) produced by Church Militant T.V. Find it here: http://www.churchmilitant.com/video/episode/ciax-2010-03-07. The broadcast dates back to 2010, but Catholics, Protestants, and religious skeptics alike should watch it because the fruits of the Alinsky-USCCB partnership have ripened. In 1938 when atheist Saul Alinsky was working with juvenile delinquents in Chicago, he struck up a friendship with two Catholic brothers, Joseph and Msgr. Peter Meegan who together acquainted Mr. Alinsky with the inner...

    With the new United Nations (UN) and federal government grand plan to steal what remains of our land through the ruse of ecosystem management, there is one grand daddy that will take all of Idaho in one fell swoop. In 1944 the United States and Canada began talks to jointly manage the Columbia River which crossed the border. Both came to an agreement in 1961 creating a treaty that would provide flood control, generate hydropower, and meet irrigation needs. This treaty, known as the ColumbiaTreaty, was finalized in 1961 and implemented in 1964. Because the river crossed borders, called transboundary,...

    (CNSNews.com) – The United Nations Working Group On Discrimination Against Women released a statement on Friday, following a ten-day mission to Hungary, that encouraged the country “not to disguise gender discrimination under an ideology of conservative family values.” The U.N. further stressed that “the formulation of family should be interpreted as including the diversity of families, recognized under international human rights law, and that it should never be used to undermine women’s reproductive rights.” The Working Group’s statement references the recent amendments to Hungary’s Fundamental Law of 2011, which states that “Hungary shall protect the institution of marriage as the...

    Over 1,500 students filled the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday for a conference sponsored by the Israeli mission on how best to combat a movement on many U.S. campuses calling for a boycott, divestment and sanctions campaign against Israel over its treatment of the Palestinians. Taking place in the same hall where 40 years ago 72 nations voted to equate Zionism with racism, Israel’s Ambassador to the U.N. Danny Danon called the conference an “historic” event. Separately, Palestinian Ambassador Riyad Mansour dismissed the conference as “no big deal.” The boycott, divestment and sanctions movement (BDS) seeks to ostracize Israel...

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government joined the Israel, the United States, Australia, Paraguay, Guatemala, Micronesia and Papua New Guinea as the only countries to vote against the resolution, which was co-sponsored by the Arab Group of States and the Palestinian delegation. …

    World Health Organization's UN resolution marks Israel as the world's only violator of 'mental, physical and environmental health.' The World Health Organization (WHO) called for an investigation into alleged abuses of "mental, physical and environmental health" rights by Israel, the only country singled out during the U.N. agency's annual assembly in Geneva. The motion was co-sponsored by the Arab Group of States and the Palestinian delegation, and it commissioned a WHO delegation to investigate and report on "the health conditions in the occupied Palestinian territory" and "the occupied Syrian Golan." France, Germany and the United Kingdom were among the 107...

    The United Nations Security Council wants a global "framework" for censoring the Internet, as well as for using government propaganda to "counter" what its apparatchiks call "online propaganda," "hateful ideologies," and "digital terrorism." To that end, the UN Security Council this week ordered the UN "Counter-Terrorism Committee" — yes, that is a real bureaucracy — to draw up a plan by next year. From the Obama administration to the brutal Communist Chinese regime, everybody agreed that it was time for a UN-led crackdown on freedom of speech and thought online — all under the guise of fighting the transparently bogus...

    OTTAWA, May 24, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — UNICEF Canada is pushing for assisted suicide and euthanasia for children — or "mature minors" — arguing that this conforms with the Charter, Canadian legal precedent and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. That would include euthanasia or assisted suicide for mature minors who suffer from a non-terminal illness or disability, according to UNICEF Canada's policy director Marvin Bernstein. UNICEF, or United Nations Children's Fund (originally, Emergency Fund) is a UN organization that is, according to its website, "on a mission to reach every child and ensure their well-being, no matter...

    A French diplomat competing to be the world’s top health official says a tiny international tax can help fill the World Health Organization’s coffers, a proposal aimed at bringing order to the U.N. agency’s fragmented budget. Dr. Philippe Douste-Blazy told journalists at the Foreign Ministry in Paris that “micropayments” tacked on to as-yet-undetermined international business operations could support WHO’s budget. “I’m persuaded that innovative financing can play a role in the support of WHO,” he said. …

    The report blames a host of factors for this year's lackluster economic prospects including persistent weak demand in the major economies which remains a drag on global growth, the low price of oil and other commodities which are hurting exporting countries, severe weather-related shocks especially severe drought related to El Nino, political challenges, and large capital outflows in many developing regions. Dawn Holland, a senior economist in the U.N. Department of Economic and Social Affairs, said the 2.4 percent growth predicted for this year is 1 percent lower than the average annual rate of growth of 3.4 percent in the...

Russia made the proposal late last month and the U.S. mission to the United Nations had signaled it would oppose the move, saying it would undermine attempts to get a sustained halt in the fighting in Syria. ...snip...
