    washington post ^ | 02/11/2016 | Karen DeYoung
    The United States, Russia and other powers have reached agreement on a "cessation of hostilities" in Syria's civil war that allows for immediate humanitarian access to besieged areas, Secretary of State John F. Kerry announced here early Friday morning. The end of hostilities, which Kerry avoided calling a cease-fire, is scheduled to go into effect "in one week’s time," Kerry said. Humanitarian access to towns and cities in Syria where food and medical supplies have been blocked, sometimes for months, is to begin immediately. ... The plan, drafted by United Nations envoy Staffan de Mistura, in consultation with Kerry and...

    During a recent visit to the United States, a United Nations (UN) working group has said that the US should consider giving long overdue reparations to descendants of slaves. The group also suggests the US government establish a national human rights commission, and publicly acknowledge that the Transatlantic Slave Trade was a crime against humanity. The UN working group, called "Experts on People of African Descent," went on a fact-finding mission, which included meetings with African-Americans from multiple cities, including Baltimore, New York, and Chicago. Although they won't release their full report until September, each member read a statement to...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration is planning to expand a program to let would-be migrants from Central America apply for refugee status before they attempt to come to the U.S., Secretary of State John Kerry said Wednesday. The office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees will now conduct initial screenings to see whether migrants from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala may qualify as refugees eligible to come to the United States legally. "I am pleased to announce plans to expand the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program to help vulnerable families and individuals from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, and...

I feel like something of a monster for even putting these words into writing, but I don’t think I really even experienced any shock or sense of betrayal when I saw yet another headline at the Washington Post today recounting the story of more United Nations peacekeeping forces in Africa turning out to have been exploiting children for sex. It’s just become so commonplace now that it’s akin to reading about another meth lab being discovered on...

    If Americans were already concerned about the U.S.'s vetting process for Syrian refugees, they're really not going to like to hear what a new report says about how those refugees are initially selected in the first place. According to the Center for Immigration Studies, the U.S. relies on the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees to make first selections about who has the potential to come to America, as well as carry out the pre-screening process. "Out of the four million-plus registered Syrian refugees in the region, UNHCR has so far submitted 22,427 cases to the United States for...

    The Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014, which received Royal Assent in March 2014, will assign a "named person" to every child in Scotland up to the age of 18 (and even beyond should the child remain in school after 18). The only exception applies to children of persons in the armed forces. The named person, for example a midwife, health worker or school teacher, will have the power to receive and share information about the child in a number of circumstances. The legislation as presently framed does not provide a parent with any say in who the named...

"I don't want to talk about this issue too much," Assaf told The New Arab afterward. "The person who said that wanted to provoke me and it's known...

    American taxpayers will once again be liable for more than one-fifth of the United Nations' regular budget next year, as well as more than one-quarter of the much-larger peacekeeping budget - a total of approximately $2,957,000,000. The U.N. General Assembly just before Christmas approved a regular operating budget of $5.4 billion for the 2016-17 period. (That budget is calculated biannually.) Of the $2.7 billion earmarked for 2016, the U.S. will account for 22 percent, or $594 million. Of the separate peacekeeping budget - $8.27 billion for the year ending June 30 - the U.S. is liable for 28.5783 percent, or...

    A UN-sponsored deal to evacuate more than 2,000 Islamic State (IS) group fighters and other militants from rebel-held parts of south Damascus has been delayed, a body that monitors the war said on Saturday, a day after a rebel leader was killed. Buses were due to transport the fighters to Raqqa, the de facto capital of the IS group in northern Syria, Lebanese Hezbollah’s Manar TV station said. But the deal fell through after the Jaysh al Islam rebel group’s leader Zahran Alloush, through whose territory the convoy had been granted safe passage, was killed in an air strike on...

    (CNSNews.com) - Speaking today at the 2015 Paris Climate Conference, President Barack Obama predicted that, unless the nations of the world acted now to combat climate change, countries would be submerged, cities would be abandoned, fields would no longer grown, and there would be new conflicts and floods of refugees. Here is a key excerpt from the president's speech, which is available in full at the White House website : This summer, I saw the effects of climate change firsthand in our northernmost state, Alaska, where the sea is already swallowing villages and eroding shorelines; where permafrost thaws and the...

Obama was one of 147 world leaders given a three-minute slot at the COP21 conference to outline their vision for the future of the planet.The president of the free world, however, had other ideas. More than eight and a half minutes into Obama's address — and with no sign he was stopping soon — three beeps sounded across the auditorium, clearly audible to everyone present and...

    President Obama and 19 world leaders are committed to double the amount of money they put into clean energy research and development. The formal announcement will come Monday at the United Nations' climate change conference in Paris, where leaders plan to wrap up final negotiations for a worldwide pact to fight global warming. The commitment would put the countries' funding for low- or zero-carbon technologies like wind power and nuclear energy at about $20 billion in five years, with about half of that amount spent by the United States, Obama administration officials said Sunday. The White House said the effort,...

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).

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...

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...

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...

    I am grateful to George Washington University professor of Law, Jonathan Turley, for pointing out that a growing number of world leaders find the First Amendment's right of free speech to be an inconvenience. He cites, for instance, U. N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon's warning that "when some people use this freedom of expression to provoke or humiliate some others' values and beliefs, then this cannot be protected." 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...

    Strong Cities Network: The UN is coming and coming in the worst way possible for patriotic America!" A (hopefully) gentle chiding for Patrick Wood over at Technocracy.com for suggesting that the Strong Cities Network (SCN) coming to a city near you soon is in no way connected to the United Nations: First, it should be noted that Strong Cities Network is NOT a government body at all, but rather a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) with no connection to any government, or even the United Nations! (Technocracy.com Oct. 12, 2015) They simply state that an International Steering Committee of officials from 25...

    Ban Ki-moon questions whether Israel uses too much force when trying to stop terror attacks. No reported comment on Palestinian incitement. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged Israel on Tuesday to carry out a "serious review" on whether its security forces are resorting to excessive force in clashes with Palestinians, AFP reports. Ban finds "the apparent excessive use of force by Israeli security forces" to be "troubling," his spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters as violence continued in Jerusalem and Bethlehem.

    The Global Goals campaign has just been announced with a bid to reach 7 billion people in 7 days with news of the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. This unprecedented effort will culminate on 25th September at the UN when 193 world leaders adopt the Global Goals, a series of 17 ambitious targets to end poverty, fight inequality & injustice and tackle climate change for everyone by 2030. If the goals are famous - if people care about what has been promised by the politicians, it greatly increases their chance of being implemented. So today the campaign is calling on...

    After decades of persecuting whistleblowers who expose everything from fraud and corruption to the widespread rape of children by so-called peacekeeping troops, the United Nation's scandalous efforts to silence and crush those who blow the whistle on wrongdoing are slowly creeping into the limelight. The explosive case of Anders Kompass, who exposed rape of children by peacekeepers in the Central African Republic and faced retaliation from the UN's top leadership, drew headlines and outrage worldwide. But the Kompass case was merely the tip of a gigantic iceberg with massive implications not just for honest UN workers, but for humanity...

    At least it was sustainable fair trade carbon neutral corruption. John Ashe, the UN General Assembly president, has been busted on corruption charges. A former president of the U.N. General Assembly "sold himself and the global institution he led" by allegedly pocketing more than $1 million in bribes to finance a luxury spending spree, according to a federal prosecutor. Ashe, 61, is accused of tax fraud in an alleged conspiracy involving five others, including a billionaire Chinese businessman and a former deputy U.N. ambassador from the Dominican Republic, according to a criminal complaint. Ashe is accused of underreporting his income...

    The former United Nations General Assembly president accepted over $1 million in bribes from Chinese execs that scored him a pricey private basketball court at his Westchester home, authorities charged Tuesday.

    On Wednesday, Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced at the United Nations that her office would be working in several American cities to form what she called the Strong Cities Network (SCN), a law enforcement initiative that would encompass the globe. This amounts to nothing less than the overriding of American laws, up to and including the United States Constitution, in favor of United Nations laws that would henceforth be implemented in the United States itself without any consultation of Congress at all. The United Nations is a sharia-compliant world body, and Obama, speaking there just days ago, insisted that...

    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...
