    Peace in our time will only come when Western leaders find the moral courage and backbone to stand up to the rampaging terrorists of the world and say: “ENOUGH!” The ‘Strong Cities Network’ (SCN) that will supplant local police with blue-helmeted United Nations personnel was up and running almost a year before it was launched from UN Headquarters by Attorney General Loretta Lynch last Wednesday. Jacob Bundsgaard, the mayor of Aarhus, the second-largest city in Denmark, attended a White House summit on countering violent extremism through SCN in mid-February. According to the official SCN homepage, Bundsgaard is the first mayor...

    Hey, America! There's a new Marshal in town Blue Helmet United Nations personnel will be replacing municipal police forces whose ranks have been harassed and hollowed out over the last year by Obama activists in groups like #BlackLivesMatter. Marxism always moves in to fill the vacuum left behind by anarchy. Like all things named by the UN, the ‘Strong Cities Network’ (SCN) sounds benign and good for society, a society distracted from what is really going on by their own self-serving governments. The Strong Cities Network is being launched in a day when millions of illegal aliens are flooding American...
  • Obama Ignored Reid’s Request to Reject Resolution for Palestinian State – Twice

    A new report confirms more White House woes with our ally Israel. A Politico exclusive reveals that Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid confronted White House chief of staff Denis McDonough on two occasions to ask President Obama to reject a UN resolution that would grant Palestine statehood. Both times, Obama gave him the silent treatment. While Reid has previously shown his support for Israel, his latest request may not exactly have been for the Middle Eastern country’s best interests. The timing suggested he was trying to secure passage for the Iran Deal: The requests from Reid came as he was...

    If looks could kill. I guess if the whole point of this is to let Netanyahu’s steely, silent stare speak for itself, I’m not going to make this a whole lot better by saying a lot. So let’s go right to the video:(Scroll down for video) I was about to say it’s cowardice, as opposed to pure evil, that Netanyahu is staring down. But I’m not sure there’s that great a distinction to be made between the two, especially when it comes to the UN. It is supposed to be an international body that makes sure the world community is...

    NEW YORK, October 1 (C-Fam) -- UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon promised that homosexual and transgender rights would advance at the United Nations despite the strain it will cause within the organization and between states. “Mostly I have not been successful,” Ban Ki-moon lamented, while recounting episodes from his “personal diplomacy” to promote lesbian, gay bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights worldwide. The outgoing Secretary General spoke to an adoring audience of delegates and advocates at UN headquarters on Tuesday during a special event on the sideline of the General Assembly. Departing from prepared remarks, he explained that his relationship with...

    Obama used the bubble afforded by the United Nations to insulate himself and his audiences from reality President Barack Obama continued his feckless foreign policy charade at the United Nations yesterday. He chaired what was billed as “The Leaders’ Summit on Countering ISIL and Violent Extremism,” and he met with Cuban President Raul Castro. At the summit, Obama claimed major progress in rolling back the Islamic State (or ISIL, as he refers to the jihadist caliphate occupying large portions of Syria and Iraq). By now, the president is certainly aware of the reported complaint, backed by 52 defense analysts, to...

    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 let’s look at what American taxpayers are getting for their large chunk (one-quarter) of the U.N’s bills.

    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 UN’s 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.

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...

The pontiff, whose reform-minded approach has won him a rousing global following even from non-believers, offered his vision of a better world on his latest stop of a US tour that has brought thousands to the streets to welcome him.

    It may not have intended to, precisely, but the United Nations just took sides in the Internet’s most brutal culture war. On Thursday, the organization’s Broadband Commission for Digital Development released a damning “world-wide wake-up call” on what it calls “cyber VAWG,” or violence against women and girls. The report concludes that online harassment is “a problem of pandemic proportion” — which, nbd, we’ve 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.

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...

    UNITED NATIONS – The deal looked simple enough: U.S. military equipment suppliers bribed an African defense minister's salesmen to secure part of a $15 million gig to outfit a presidential guard. But the salesmen were actually FBI agents. And the operation resulted in what U.S. authorities in January called their biggest foreign bribery sting to date, netting 16 indictments and 22 arrests of small arms and military equipment makers. At the center of the U.S. case is Richard Bistrong, a former Florida executive who first surfaced in a series of cases of bribes and bid-rigging for multimillion-dollar U.N. peacekeeping contracts....

    Thirteen years ago, Samantha Power made a name for herself with her Pulitzer prize-winning book, “‘A Problem from Hell’: America and the Age of Genocide.” In this book, she explored the history of America’s reluctance to intervene to stop or prevent genocides. Prescribing American intervention as justified on grounds both “moral” and in service of “enlightened self-interest,” Power asked how something so clear in retrospect as the need to stop genocide could “become so muddled at the time by rationalization, institutional constraints, and a lack of imagination.” It appears that on Monday morning, Power herself is going to demonstrate exactly...

Not surprisingly, the mainstream U. S. media ignored the story. The resolution, approved by a vote of 27 to 14, urges member states...

    The United Nations Security Council is being used to midwife the legal instrument that legitimizes the path to a possible nuclear holocaust. The final Iran nuclear deal agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), is heading this Monday to the United Nations Security Council for a scheduled rubber stamp endorsement of its terms. The resolution, which will go into effect 90 days after passage, incorporates the JCPOA as an attachment. It invokes the Security Council’s authority under the UN Charter to call upon the UN member states to support the implementation of the nuclear deal terms. In...

    Last Friday, while most Americans were distracted debating the pros and cons of the Confederate Flag, or lamenting the latest SCOTUS rulings, Democrats and one world supporters gathered in San Francisco, California to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the United Nations. The event, held in San Francisco City Hall, was a Progressive star-studded event featuring the likes of Governor Jerry Brown, Mayor Ed Lee, and Democratic Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi. But the most compelling statement was made the the keynote speaker, the Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-Moon. Secretary Moon admitted that in September World Leaders, including President Obama,are set...

    On 22 June, just four days after Pope Francis promulgated the encyclical on the environment, Archbishop Bernardito Auza, Apostolic Nuncio and Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the United Nations gave a formal statement to the United Nations on the “Zero Draft, Post-2015 Development Agenda.” As an Apostolic Nuncio, the Archbishop represents Pope Francis himself and, in effect, is speaking on his behalf. In his statement he said: “We support the verbatim inclusion of the sustainable development goals and targets as in the Report of the OWG (Open Working Group).” (emphasis added) Toward the end of the statement, the...

    Do you remember when Detroit when bankrupt and resident Obama refused to intervene in order to help Americans in a beleaguered American city? This was both baffling and maddening to the American people. After all, this "hope and change" resident promised to fundamentally transform America. Little did we realize that the Detroit bankruptcy would open the floodgates to the total foreign control of American's most precious resource, namely water, where the UN has gained a significant foothold in Detroit and its influence is spreading across the country. When Obama refused to help Detroit's bankruptcy and its ensuing water crisis, subsequent...

    Each year the United States gives approximately $8 billion in mandatory payments and voluntary contributions to the United Nations and its affiliated organizations. The biggest portion of this money – about $3 billion this year – goes to the U.N.’s regular and peacekeeping budgets. If that seems like a lot, it is—far more than anyone else pays And it’s also, in some cases, bad value for money. The U.N. system for calculating member nations’ “fair share” payment toward its regular and peacekeeping budgets has increasingly shifted the burden away from the vast majority of the 193 members and onto a...

    n a sweeping, sometimes apocalyptic encyclical, Pope Francis on Thursday blasted the Obama administration and other world governments for not doing nearly enough to confront climate change, and said mankind is squandering the planet given to it by God and must abandon fossil fuels as soon as possible. “The earth, our home, is beginning to look more and more like an immense pile of filth,” the pontiff said in his 184-page climate-change encyclical, a long-awaited document released publicly Thursday by the Vatican.”These situations have caused sister earth, along with all the abandoned of our world, to cry out, pleading that...

    Citing wasted tax dollars and attacks on the constitutionally guaranteed liberties of the American people, Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.; shown) introduced a bill to restore U.S. sovereignty and withdraw from the United Nations. The effort to de-fund and exit the UN comes amid growing scrutiny of the global organization, often ridiculed as the “dictators club,” and myriad mega-scandals swirling around it. However, despite ever-growing support in Congress for restoring U.S. sovereignty by withdrawing from the UN over the years, the legislation still faces an uphill battle.In a statement last week announcing the American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2015 (H.R. 1205),...
  • Report Reveals UN Peacekeepers Trade Goods for Sex

    A draft UN report has revealed that UN peacekeepers routinely flout a ban of the international organization and pay for sex with money, dresses, jewelry, perfume, cell phones and other items in a flagrant exploitation of poverty-stricken populations they are meant to protect. Reuters received a copy of the draft report, which was conducted by the UN Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS), and detailed how UN forces bought the sexual services of hundreds of women in Haiti and Liberia who said they were forced to sell their bodies due to hunger and poverty. "Evidence from two peacekeeping mission countries...
