    One of President Trump’s greatest strengths is his keen instincts for developing relationships as a strategic tools toward accomplishing consequential objectives. To wit, President Trump invites the entire U.N. Security Council delegation to lunch at the White House. Now, most of us, myself included, do not think highly of the United Nations as an entity that has ever accomplished anything of worth – beyond pushing an incessant drum-beat of left-wing globalism and ridiculous pie-in-the-sky pontificating. However, that said, the historic invitation to lunch is quite smartly full-throated use of regional political proximity. President Trump inviting the U.N Security Council ambassadors...

    Armenian Weekly ^ | April 24, 2017
    Former United States Ambassador to the United Nations (UN) publicly apologized for not properly acknowledging the Armenian Genocide during her tenure under the administration of U.S. resident Barack Obama. Almost every Armenian-American family was touched in some way by the genocide. Ongoing Turkish denial makes the genocide an open wound… I am very sorry that, during our time in office, we in the Obama administration did not recognize the Armenian Genocide,” Power said in a series of tweets. .... Power has faced much criticism for her silence on Obama’s failure to recognize the Armenian Genocide, and had refused to publicly...

    Electing Saudi Arabia to the Women’s Rights Commission is akin to electing Adolf Hitler to head the Commission on Antisemitism. Madness, misogyny and Islamic supremacism on the march.

    The United Nations chose Saudi Arabia, the country that covers women in black tents, doesn’t allow women to drive nor considers women actual human beings in charge of “promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women”.    Makes perfect sense to me.     Via The Daily Caller:   The UN’s Economic and Social Council voted by secret ballot to put Saudi Arabia on the Commission on the Status of Women.   It is the principal international organization responsible for the “promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women,” according to the commission’s website.   Saudi Arabia, a...

    The United Nations put Saudi Arabia on its commission for the empowerment of women Wednesday, despite the country mandating women can’t leave home without a male guardian. The UN’s Economic and Social Council voted by secret ballot to put Saudi Arabia on the Commission on the Status of Women. It is the principal international organization responsible for the “promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women,” according to the commission’s website.

    The United Nations Agenda 2030 of Sustainable Development is not going away and its goals are relatively close to completion, now to include the forced flood of international migrants around the globe and the obliteration of national borders a In case you were wondering about the planned invasion of Europe and other developed nations, including the United States, wonder no more. Today, The International Organization for Migration, a United Nations Migration Agency, funded partially and generously with your taxpayer dollars for 65 years, is holding an International Dialogue on Migration in New York, on April 18-19, with the theme, “Strengthening...

    Russia’s unexpected announcement recognizing Israel’s eternal capital of Jerusalem, a dramatic decision that places Vladimir Putin against Donald Trump in a totally new big-power rivalry – the race to Jerusalem. Many American and Israeli Jews have waited with mounting impatience for Trump to keep his campaign promise to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Against an atmosphere of US equivocation, Putin suddenly announced, without preamble or restricting conditions, the recognition of Israel’s capital, to take effect immediately.
  • The “Clean Water Rule” Is About Federal Authority, Not Water

    The rule defines eight categories of waters of the U.S. Six categories include traditional navigable waters, interstate waters, territorial seas (these three are called “jurisdictional waters”), impoundments of jurisdictional waters, “tributaries,” and “adjacent” waters. These are jurisdictional by rule in all cases, requiring no additional analysis in order to be regulated. To be adjacent, the rule uses the rubric of “neighboring,” which can be met by waters in the 100-year floodplain—meaning land which might be wet one out of every 100 days is a water of the U.S. and can be federally controlled. Texas coastal prairie wetlands are another type...

    U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley forced Bolivia to "defend the atrocities of the Syrian regime" in "full public view" on Friday, after the country's ambassador requested a closed session to discuss President Trump's strikes in Syria. Trump ordered the missile strikes in response to a chemical weapons attack by Syrian President Bashar Assad Tuesday which killed dozens in northern Syria. Haley revealed the Bolivian ambassador's request for a private emergency session of the U.N. Security Council in a written statement Friday morning. She countered: "The United States, as president of the Council this month, decided the session would...

    Shortened title. Full title: Syria's government was supposed to have gotten rid of its chemical weapons in 2014. So what happened? There’s a mystery at the heart of an apparent chemical weapons attack in Syria this week: Syria’s government, suspected of carrying out the attack, was supposed to have gotten rid of all its chemical weapons in 2014. A year earlier, President Obama said Syria had crossed a “red line” by allegedly using sarin gas near Damascus and Aleppo, killing at least 100 to 150 people. But rather than take military action, Obama agreed to a Russian deal to dismantle...

    The United States is ending its support for a United Nations entity that promotes abortion overseas, the State Department has announced. Pro-life leaders are praising President Trump for the move. "We are thrilled that the U.S. is no longer funding forced abortion and involuntary sterilization in China," Reggie Littlejohn, president of Women's Rights Without Frontiers, told LifeSiteNews Tuesday. "The blood of Chinese women and babies will no longer be on our hands ... I have consistently advocated for the defunding of UNFPA over the years, most recently just a couple of weeks ago at the United Nations Commission on the...

    Nikki Haley, the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, says the “biggest surprise” she has encountered so far is the constant anti-Israel bias at the UN. “They’re not talking about things we would care about. They’re not talking about Syria. They’re not talking about Iran. They’re not talking about North Korea. What they are talking about is Israel,” Haley told Fox News in an interview aired Sunday. “Every single month, for 10 years, they’ve been Israel bashing. And that was something that I just couldn’t believe they put the time and energy into doing that, when we have so...

    The Trump administration announced Monday that it is cutting off funding to a UN agency that has been credibly accused of promoting forced abortion, particularly in Communist China, under the guise of “family planning.”The State Department said it was stopping the flow of taxpayer dollars to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) “based on the fact that China’s family planning policies still involve the use of coercive abortion and involuntary sterilization, and UNFPA partners on family planning activities with the Chinese government agency responsible for these coercive policies,” reported CNSNews.com.

    Pro-family groups hoping the United Nations would quit pushing homosexuality and gender confusion on children under new UN Secretary-General António Guterres are going to be very disappointed. Not only has the globalist institution not reined in its activism on behalf of the “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender” (LGBT) agenda, the UN's new LGBT czar is using taxpayer resources to push the indoctrination into schools worldwide — and especially on young children. Simultaneously, the UN is helping to wage a global war on religious liberty, much of it under the guise of protecting LGBT activists from “stigma” and “discrimination.” Critics, though,...

    The UN Security Council is to hold emergency talks after an alleged chemical attack in Syria left dozens of civilians dead and wounded. The release of chemicals in a rebel-held town in Idlip province brought furious international reaction. Officials in Damascus deny opposition and Western claims that they used chemical weapons. Russia's defence ministry said a Syrian air strike had hit a rebel ammunition store that included chemical weapons..... In a statement, US President Donald Trump condemned what he called "these heinous actions" by the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

    A Missouri woman who has attended official meetings on resettling migrants is blowing the whistle on United Nations and federal schemes that she says are quietly flying in huge numbers of unvetted, diseased “refugees” from across Africa and the Middle East — many of whom do not even have a known name — and immediately handing them passports, Social Security numbers, and a vast array of tax-funded benefits. Noting that the overwhelming majority of the migrants she observed were men, she suggested the schemes were an “intentional device” to “invade the United States of America.” Adding insult to injury, said...

    Late on Friday, March 17th, Israeli fighter jets crossed the Syrian border and carried out bombing raids against targets located in or near Palmyra. It represents the most northerly point Israel have ever attacked in Syria since the beginning of the civil war in 2011. It is believed Israel were targeting Hezbollah advanced weapons transfers. The Syrian response was immediate, launching several anti-aircraft missiles which pursued the IDF jets back into Israeli airspace. Israel were then forced, for the first time, to deploy the new Arrow defense system, which according the Israeli government successfully intercepted the Syrian anti-aircraft missiles just...
