    PRESIDENT Obama officially welcomed the British PM to the US today by vowing to fight for a successful global economy where all countries 'abide by the same rules.' The President, in his welcome speech at the White House declared that the bond between Britain and the US was stronger than ever and that both countries would work together to ensure that no other jeopardises the stability of the global economy. The economic situations for both countries have been precarious in recent months with the eurozone debt crisis threatening to destabilise the entire global economy. President Obama said: "We are fighting...

    Let the president be duly warned. Rep. Walter B. Jones Jr., R-N.C., has introduced a resolution declaring that should the president use offensive military force without authorization of an act of Congress, “it is the sense of Congress” that such an act would be “an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor.” Specifically, Article I, Section 8, of the Constitution reserves for Congress alone the power to declare war, a restriction that has been sorely tested in recent years, including Obama’s authorization of military force in Libya. In an exclusive WND column, former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo claims that Jones introduced his...

    “They promise..freedom, but they themselves are slaves of corruption…” (2 Peter 2:19). Wendy Wright, reporting for C-FAM, notes how, "Youth attending a UN conference on women’s issues this week say UN security officers confiscated their backpacks after discovering pro-life literature. The confiscated materials were petitions to 'Stop Sexualizing Children,' and were connected to a UN approved workshop led this week by Dr. Miriam Grossman, a child psychiatrist and author of 'You're Teaching My Child What? A Physician Exposes the Lies of Sex Education and How They Harm Your Child.' The offending flyer announced a project called the 'Girls Coalition to...
  • Nationwide Indoctrination for Local Elected Officials on Agenda 21

    03/06/2012 8:07:06 PM PST · by Whenifhow · 6 replies
    Those who are pushing to implement the UN Sustainable Development program (Agenda 21) have decided to set up nationwide indoctrination sessions for elected officials and municipal government professionals. This is a clear indication that the tireless efforts of ordinary citizens to educate and combat Agenda 21 in their communities is working. Predictable Progressives are now resorting to the same tactics they’ve successfully used on our children… Indoctrinate the teachers in Universities to arm them with the propaganda needed to indoctrinate our children in public school classrooms. In this case, they’ll indoctrinate local officials to arm them with the propaganda to...

    Utah - The San Juan County Sheriff’s Office has launched an investigation into the unlawful closing of a county road on BLM public lands. At the February 27 meeting of the County Commission, Commissioner Bruce Adams said the county claims the road and directed the county road department to destroy the berm “that has been placed in the middle of our road” and do whatever is required to make the road passable. Adams also asked that the road department track all costs on the project, in the event a citation is issued, to determine the restitution that would need to...

    WASHINGTON — On Feb. 20, a NATO-Afghan security team at the Parwan Detention Center — adjacent to the U.S.-run Bagram Air Field, north of Kabul — began destroying files, books and documents from the detention facility library. The printed material was being burned because it contained handwritten coded messages being passed among Taliban and al-Qaida detainees. Afghan security personnel retrieved charred pages from several copies of the Quran and other Islamic holy texts. The following day, angry crowds rioted outside NATO installations in Kabul and elsewhere around Afghanistan. On Feb. 23, White House spokesman Jay Carney announced that President...
  • China calls U.S. criticism over Syria "totally unacceptable"

    China on Monday called "totally unacceptable" U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's denunciation of its stand on Syria, and a top newspaper said that, after the Iraq war, Washington was "super arrogant" to claim to speak for Arab people. China's angry words came after Clinton on Friday called the Chinese and Russian veto of a U.N. resolution on Syria "despicable." "They are setting themselves not only against the Syrian people but also the entire Arab awakening," Clinton said of China and Russia, which have resisted Western and Arab calls to push Syrian President Bashar al-Assad from power.

  • UN Still After Your Guns - Major Preparation Underway For Their "Arms Trade Treaty" Implementation

    02/24/2012 11:42:35 AM PST · by Sasparilla · 19 replies
    The UN is ramping up their gun control efforts. They concluded a meeting in preparation of their plans for an Arms Trade Agreement, and at that meeting, the idea was put forth that transfers of arms and ammunition to "non-state actors" should be specifically banned by the Treaty. The UN says that, "An eclectic set of national and regional control measures on arms transfers exists, but the absence of such an international framework has unnecessarily obscured transparency and trust." Their aim is to complete the Treaty by the end of this year. The UN claims that this treaty will not...

    Those in a panic over the expected loss of 2nd Amendment rights should the UN Small Arms Treaty be adopted need to understand two very important facts: 1) the Treaty has no chance of garnering the 2/3rds vote necessary for senate approval; and 2) a real UN sponsored threat to gun rights in the US and globally does exist, going under the acronym of ISACS, “International Small Arms Control Standards.” The UN has been actively working to disarm private individuals and a fair number of nations for thirty years. From its inception in 1982 to the current United Nations Office...

    The Internet has also been a net job creator. A recent McKinsey study found that for every job disrupted by Internet connectivity, 2.6 new jobs are created. It is no coincidence that these wonderful developments blossomed as the Internet migrated further away from government control. Today, however, Russia, China and their allies within the 193 member states of the ITU want to renegotiate the 1988 treaty to expand its reach into previously unregulated areas. Reading even a partial list of proposals that could be codified into international law next December at a conference in Dubai is chilling: • Subject cyber...

    The UN atomic agency said Wednesday that "intensive efforts" by its team visiting Iran on the way forward failed, and that they were denied access to a key military site. "Intensive efforts were made to reach agreement on a document facilitating the clarification of unresolved issues in connection with Iran's nuclear programme," the International Atomic Energy Agency said. "Unfortunately, agreement was not reached on this document." The team requested access both during this visit and during a first trip in late January to the Parchin military site where it suspects suspicious nuclear activities are carried out, but Iran "did not...

    Senator Chuck Schumer wrote a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton today calling for “increased scrutiny” of the Iranian Mission to the United Nations in light of potential terrorist attacks against New York City. Pointing to NYPD’s director of intelligence warning that Iran is “essentially” the number one threat, Mr. Schumer argued these diplomats must ”be vigorously monitored.” “With Iran’s increasingly bellicose and threatening behavior, it’s imperative that agents of the Iranian government in the United States receive additional scrutiny to ensure that they pose no threat to New York or the rest of the country,” Mr. Schumer said...
