  • Prince Charles blames the Syrian War on Climate Change. He has a Point [TIC]

    Washington Post ^ | November 24, 2015 17:25 UTC | Niraj Chokshi
    Britain's Prince Charles has blamed climate change in part for the Syrian war and warned that global warming could exacerbate similar conflicts worldwide. Charles's comments — in an interview broadcast Monday — came exactly one week before the start of a United Nations climate change conference in Paris, where he plans to deliver a keynote address. Unless world leaders take action to slow the impact of climate change, "it’s going to get so much worse," Charles warned in the interview with Sky News, which was recorded before the Nov. 13 terrorist attacks in Paris. "Some of us were saying 20...

They offer as a hypothesis to their question “as to why he continues to obfuscate the specific nature of the attack, and in a manner consistent with his approach to Islamist terror in general”.

    NEW YORK CITY, November 10, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – "Free and Equal," a United Nations campaign advancing homosexual interests, is using pictures of a candidate for Catholic sainthood, Mother Teresa of Calcutta, and her words to promote its agenda. Susan Yoshihara of C-FAM, The Center for Family and Human Rights, says the whole campaign is a fraud, so it is no surprise that it is misleading people by suggesting that devoutly Catholic Mother Teresa supported the homosexual agenda. "If what this campaign stood for was really true, they wouldn't need to lie about Mother Teresa, who was always faithful to the...

    STOCKHOLM (AP) - The U.N.'s environmental authority has quietly raised its assessment of the level at which global greenhouse gas emissions must peak to avoid dangerous climate change, as governments seek a new accord to fight global warming. In its first four annual emissions reports in 2010-2013, the United Nations Environment Program said emissions must not exceed 44 billion tons in 2020 for the world to limit global warming to 2 degrees C (3.6 degrees F).

    President Obama addresses workers (White House photo) UNITED NATIONS – The Obama administration’s release Thursday of the more than 2,000 pages of the text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement, known more commonly as Obamatrade, has prompted a rash of criticism from both the political left and the right. Critics charge the pact undermines U.S. sovereignty by establishing a secret, unaccountable TransPacific Partnership Commission with sweeping regulatory powers over 40 percent of the world’s economy while sending jobs abroad. “This trade agreement would allow foreign corporations to challenge our health, safety and environmental protections in a foreign tribunal outside our...

    Systemic corruption will continue to contaminate the UN as long as it accepts contributions from companies or their affiliated foundations which are motivated to use their contributions as a means to launder their public images, gain unfair advantage Public corruption can appear in various forms. First, individual office holders may violate the public trust, abusing their positions of authority to peddle influence for money. The public institutions which they are supposed to serve may not be inherently corrupt themselves but they may enable such schemes by virtue of inadequate internal controls. Second, and potentially more pernicious, is institutional corruption. This...

    George Soros has all sorts of ideas -- dictates, really -- for how Europe must sign up for its demise by importing hordes of Muslims. Soros outlines a six-point plan for civilizational demise in Project-Syndicate, as summarized below, with a bit of commentary in parentheses. The EU must accept a million "asylum-seekers" every year for the foreseeable future. And the EU must pay 15,000 Euros (about $17,000) per invader for at least the first couple of years after they arrive. George strongly urges Europe to make sure these "asylum seekers" get to settle in whichever country and whichever region of...

    The UN has accused the Czech Republic of holding desperate refugees in 'degrading' conditions worse than a prison. UN Human Rights chief, Zeid Raad Al Hussein, accused the country of 'systematic' rights violations, where migrants are packed together in camps with a shortage of toilets and beds without blankets. He said the Czech Republic was 'unique' in its routine detention of migrants for long periods, frequently up to 90 days at a time. He also referred to reports migrants had been routinely strip-searched to find money (of 250 Czech crowns or 6.79) to pay for their detention as 'reprehensible'. He...

    Seventy years ago today, the UN Charter came into force, thus inaugurating the latest attempt to create a one-world government. Previously, the world tried to achieve that goal by creating the League of Nations a weak, ineffective body that failed miserably in its charter to keep the peace. Actually, when you think about it, that perfectly describes the UN. But the League actually thought that a blizzard of paper could stand against totalitarians hell bent on world domination so they signed treaty after treaty, inked convention after convention, to try and stop the armies of Hitler, Mussolini, and Tojo...

He cites, for instance, U. N.

Turley makes the valuable -- and if you think about it, obvious -- observation that free speech becomes intolerable not when it is used recklessly but when one person or a group...

    The parade of dictators and despots taking the U.N. stage on Monday, as the organization marks its 70th anniversary, was nothing short of spectacular. As were the lies they told without batting an eye to a friendly and respectful audience. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has his hand out for an additional $20 billion this year, so lets look at what American taxpayers are getting for their large chunk (one-quarter) of the U.Ns bills. Xi Jinping, President of China, said we must endeavor to meet the goals of democracy and freedom. Meanwhile, he is an iron-fisted ruler of an undemocratic state...

    Who will determine production and consumption? Proponents of Sustainable Development and Green Economy need to answer some pointed questions. And, they need to stop pretending to be economists, because they are not! The United Nations intends to replace Capitalism and Free Enterprise with its Green Economy, or Sustainable Development. However, its concepts of development and economy are deeply flawed and reminiscent of fringe ideas from the Great Depression era. (For a full discussion of Technocracy in the 1930s, see Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation.) Sustainable Development, as most recently promoted by the UNs 2030 Agenda Conference in...

    U.S. President Barack Obama said on Monday the international community should have done more to avoid a leadership vacuum in Libya, which has been in disarray since the fall of Muammar Qaddafi four years ago. Obama told the United Nations General Assembly the international community must work harder in future to ensure states do not implode. The rapid descent of Libya into violent chaos was one of the most dramatic events in the "Arab Spring," the abrupt collapse of long-standing autocratic governments in a number of Arab countries in the face of popular protests.

    Vladimir Putin probably had to wait 20 minutes for an elevator. Yeah, that's the ticket . . . Josh Earnest, Barack Obama's spokesman, has excused Vladimir Putin's snub of the President of the United States, in which the Russian strongman turned up 20 minutes late for their lunch at the UN yesterday. On today's Morning Joe, Earnest lamely defended Vlad's tardiness: "anybody that's been around the UN during the General Assembly knows it's total chaos inside that building, so people ae running late quite frequently. " Right. And if you believe that, we've got an oceanfront condo in Moscow to...

    President Obama took on a confrontational tone in his speech this morning to the United Nations General Assembly, specifically calling out Russia, China and Iran for destabilizing activities in various world conflicts. Obama opened his speech directly decrying "strong states that seek to impose their will on weaker ones," then alluded to Russian support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. "On this basis, we see some major powers assert themselves in ways that contravene international law," Obama said. "We're told that such retrenchment is required to beat back disorder, that it's the only way to stamp out terrorism. In accordance with...

Taking the UN rostrum, the leader of the worlds more than one billion Catholics called for reform to global bodies, including the UN Security Council and financial lenders, to limit...

    It may not have intended to, precisely, but the United Nations just took sides in the Internets most brutal culture war.

The report concludes that online harassment is a problem of pandemic proportion which, nbd, weve all heard before. But the United Nations then goes on to propose radical, proactive policy changes for both governments and social networks, effectively projecting a whole new vision for how the Internet could work. Under U.S....

    Agenda 21, One World Government, Pope Francis, Obama In all the hoopla of his celebrated first historic visit to America, Pope Francis as President Barack Obamas latest booster must have started his adulation long before taking his first step on American soil. Borrowing the words of Julius Caesar, Veni, vidi, vici, Pope Francis came, he saw and he complained-repeatedly-about the many ills he attributes to America. Indeed, when it comes to blaming America, the Pope and the President sing from the same choir book. The only difference between president and pontiff on their put-downs of America and her citizens is...

    Christians and other religious minorities are suffering genocide in the Middle East and parts of Africa directly as a result of Islamic jihad. They cannot afford to worry about the effects of climate change. They are in a daily battle for their lives Pope Francis addressed the United Nations General Assembly on September 25th. He started out by praising the UN, which is observing its seventieth anniversary this year. He gave credit to the UN for such achievements he described as the codification and development of international law, the establishment of international norms regarding human rights, advances in humanitarian law,...
