    TRUMP is making good on his promise to cut billions from UN funding…and the UN is squealing like a stuck pig OCTOBER 10, 2019 BY BARENAKEDISLAM Now the UN Secretary General is begging for money. Perhaps he should hit up all the other United Nations member states that regularly fall short on their required annual financial contributions, figuring that the United States will be there to take up the slack. Breitbart The United Nations is running a deficit of $230 million, Secretary General Antonio Guterres warned on Monday, and may run out of money by the end of October unless...

    CNN has a pretty remarkable story up today that reveals something everyone involved would rather remain a secret. For decades, people from Kenya have posed as Somalian refugees to take advantage of resettlement opportunities in the US and elsewhere. And CNN reports that middlemen collect large sums of money in order to bribe UN officials to make sure their clients have the best chance of being relocated. For decades, the chaos in Kenya’s troubled neighbor, Somalia, pushed wave after wave of refugees across the border. They came in buses, on donkeys, and sometimes by foot.But as the number of...

    Greta Thunberg became the poster child for climate hysteria and fraud by sailing across the Atlantic in a supposedly “zero-carbon” yacht, the Malizia II, which in fact was made out of petroleum products from stem to stern ... Malizia II, like the rest of the yachts in the Imoca 60 class, is constructed from high-tech carbon fiber composites to make it ultra light and fast. It is the ultimate play thing of the wealthy elite. These boats are made of hydrocarbons, not to mention all the energy it took to make them. Carbon fiber composites are primarily made from propane...

    The Trump administration owes the United Nations about $1 billion in payments at a time when the multilateral organization said it is facing its "worst cash crisis" in a decade, USA Today reports. The U.S. owes $381 million in back payments and $674 million for 2019. Of the $1.3 billion owed to the U.N. by member states, the U.S. is responsible for more than $1 billion. U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres sent a letter to member states on Tuesday calling the current situation the "worst cash crisis facing the United Nations in nearly a decade." Stéphane Dujarric, a spokesman for Guterres,...

  • U.N. Accuses Netherlands Of ‘Islamophobia’ Over Burqa Ban

    A Dutch ban on the wearing of face-covering garments such as the burqa which came into place in August has “no place” in a tolerant society, a U.N. representative said Monday. Tendayi Achiume, the U.N. Special Rapporteur on racism, said the ban reflected a wider “consolidation of Islamophobia” in the Netherlands. As Breitbart News reported, the Dutch ban took effect in August, 14 years after it was first mooted by Dutch populist Geert Wilders. The new legislation makes it illegal to wear face coverings in public buildings and on transport. “From now on the wearing of clothing which covers the...

    If you’ve heard of the phrase “carbon footprint” chances are, you’ve heard of Greta Thunberg. The impassioned 16-year-old climate activist is now the subject of countless news articles, angry tweets, and not surprisingly, a whole host of uncharitable memes. A polarizing force, you either love her for her devoted climate fervor or you hate her for the public spanking that she unleashed on world leaders for not taking the impending climate doom seriously enough. She has shamed politicians and individuals and has unapologetically called on the world to panic along with her. But does Greta really buy what she’s selling?...

    Pittsburgh has become the second U.S. city to incorporate United Nations Sustainable Development Goals into its practices, planning and policies, an initiative that will affect more than $4 billion worth of public and private projects in the region during the next 12 years. Mayor Bill Peduto announced the commitment to the 17 U.N. sustainability goals Friday, saying they identify the most important issues facing the globe -- poverty, hunger, climate change, education, gender equality and health, among them. He said the goals will help inform coordinated and collaborative programs and partnerships with universities and nonprofit, business and civic sectors, and...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday took aim at teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg, telling an energy forum he did not share the excitement about her United Nations speech last month. The 16-year-old Swede electrified the U.N. summit in New York when she denounced world leaders for failing to tackle climate change, unleashing the outrage felt by millions of her peers by demanding: “How dare you?” Putin, chairing a session at an energy forum in Moscow, said: “I may disappoint you but I don’t share the common excitement about the speech by Greta Thunberg. “No one has explained to Greta...
  • Greta Thunberg's speech to UN strangely resembles a 1992 speech by 12-year-old Severn Cullis-Suzuki

    Well, at least the climate hysterics are practicing recycling.  Or repeating a pattern of child abuse, exploiting young minds and souls for their political benefit, if you will.  Or maybe it is just a matter of running out of ideas and realizing that since they are peddling fear, nobody could better instill alarm than a threatened, vulnerable child. Whatever the motives, it is clear that Miss Thunberg's publicity stunt ocean voyage (on a royal yacht) and appearance at the U.N. was following a script written more than a quarter-century ago.  And it is no secret.  This 1992 video of then-12-year-old Severn Cullis-Suzuki addressing the...

    Scoldilocks, Or the Story of Greta Thunberg A pair of Scandinavian leftists pimp out their Asperger’s-suffering daughter to push global warming, and chaos ensues. Monday was the culmination of a year’s worth of programmatic, propagandistic proselytization, as a 16-year-old Swedish child with a developmental disability took to a podium at the United Nations to harangue and insult the leaders of the free world over the supposed “mass extinction” that is coming as a result of global warming.Sorry. “Climate change,” as though that is somehow a tragic event; never mind the fact that the climate changes four times per year in...

    United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres’ speech to the 74th annual High-Level General Assembly meeting on September 24th was full of generalities about world problems the UN is purporting to deal with, in contrast to President Trump's honest discussion of hard truths. “We are here to advance the common good while upholding our shared humanity and values,” the secretary general said. “That vision united the founders of our Organization.” However, Secretary General Guterres’ concept of the UN “vision” today is of a globalist institution, which was not the founders’ original vision at all. The founders' vision for a new United...

    The Trump administration is encouraging countries across the world to stand up for the rights of unborn babies by opposing radical pro-abortion policies at the United Nations. In a letter leaked to the Guardian and reportedly signed by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, the United States urged countries to join a “growing coalition” in opposing the “harmful” pro-abortion agenda. The Guardian, a pro-abortion news outlet, described the letter as an attempt to “rollback women’s rights.” But abortion appears to be the real issue of concern. The letter criticized the United Nations for...
