    What is clear is the prospect of further damage to the UN's already shaky credibility Three cases of human rights abuses reared their ugly head again this week. The United Nations’ role has been called into question, including the responses of UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres to the criticisms. The first human rights case involves Myanmar. The Free Rohingya Coalition criticized Secretary General Guterres and former UN Resident Coordinator in Myanmar Renata Lok-Dessallien for failing to safeguard thousands of Rohingya, an ethnic Muslim minority, in Myanmar. The group cited the findings in a 36-page official report entitled “A brief and...

    Start the Counter Revolution that will take your country back and start it today The only way to take back your country (any country) begins and ends with reclaiming your own hometown by running your own candidates for mayors, councillors and school board trustees in the very next election. It’s an idea for a Counter Revolution, whose time came a long time ago but has been virtually ignored until now. It is not at the federal level of government where the shift to socialism can be stopped in its tracks, but at the largely ignored civic or municipal level.

    Russia will address the United Nations to declare victory in World War II as the ‘heritage of humanity,’ while also making the monuments to those who fought against the Nazis as part of a global memorial. The speaker of the Upper House of the Russian Parliament, Valentina Matviyenko, shared those plans with UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, during the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF). Russian MPs have already made the same offer to their colleagues in foreign parliaments, she added. The Federation Council speaker vowed that the parliament will to do everything to make sure “that no dirty hand will...
  • US calls to dismantle UNRWA

    Embedded Video, no link to You Tube. The United States called Wednesday for dismantling UNRWA, weeks before unveiling the economic aspects of its long-awaited Middle East peace plan. Addressing the UN Security Council, US adviser Jason Greenblatt said UNRWA was a "bandaid" and that it was time to hand over services assured by the UN agency to countries hosting the Palestinian Arab refugees and NGOs. "The UNRWA model has failed the Palestinian people," Greenblatt told the council. Last year, President Donald Trump's administration cut all funding to UNRWA, arguing that it was flawed as Washington pressed ahead with work on...

    As states across the U.S. crack down on abortions, the UN is going in the other direction. The United Nations (UN) is holding firm when it comes to proliferating abortions throughout the globe, as they pushed through a measure in favor of “sexual and reproductive health” that tacitly endorsed abortion. Irish ambassador Geraldine Byrne Nason muscled through a document during the Commission on the Status of Women in March to ensure “universal access to sexual and reproductive health-care services” for women in member states. It was muscled through despite the fact that several delegates felt “bullied and harassed” by the...

    Over the past two days, nearly every major media outlet reported that the Trump administration either objected to or "diluted" a United Nations resolution condemning rape as a weapon of war. "US threatens to veto UN resolution on rape as weapon of war, officials say," a headline from The Guardian read. "UN waters down rape resolution to appease US's hardline abortion stance," read a second article in The Guardian. "United States dilutes UN rape-in-war resolution," read the headline from the BBC. "Trump administration forces UN to water down resolution opposing rape in war," was the headline from the Independent. "The...

    As the global body becomes increasingly identified with tackling climate change, Trump refuses to take part, handing the reins to Beijing. In a bid to slow the pace of global warming, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres has invited major powers, including Britain, China, India, France, and Turkey, to help shape the environmental agenda at a major U.N. climate summit in New York in September. The United States, which the U.N. encouraged to participate, has yet to say whether it will attend the high-level meeting and has opted out of the preliminary negotiations - leaving it to others, including rivals like...

    President Trump announced Friday that he would un-sign the global arms pact known as the Arms Trade Treaty in the latest illustration of his aversion to international pacts and world governance. “We will never allow foreign bureaucrats to trample on your Second Amendment freedom,” Trump said during a speech before the National Rifle Association in Indianapolis. “I’m officially announcing today that the United States will be revoking the effect of America’s signature from this badly misguided treaty.” The origins of the treaty, which sets out international rules for sales and transfers of everything from small arms to large planes and...

    UNITED NATIONS — The U.N. climate chief says world leaders must recognize there is no option except to speed-up and scale-up action to tackle global warming, warning that continuing on the current path will lead to “a catastrophe.” Patricia Espinosa stressed in two recent interviews with the Associated Press that climate scientists are saying there’s still a chance to make things right “but the window of opportunity is closing very soon” and the world has 12 years until carbon emissions reach “a point of no return.” That means the world needs to accelerate all efforts to keep from reaching that...

    US personnel in Afghanistan are being investigated by the ICC. The US has revoked the entry visa for the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), Fatou Bensouda. The decision is thought to be the US response to Ms Bensouda's investigation into possible war crimes by American forces and their allies in Afghanistan. The US secretary of state had warned the US might refuse or revoke visas to any ICC staff involved in such probes. Ms Bensouda's office said the ICC prosecutor would continue to her duties "without fear or favour". Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said: "If you're responsible...

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan proposed converting the fabled Hagia Sophia into a mosque on Sunday. The Greek government responded with anger on Monday, pointing out that the Hagia Sophia was the seat of Greek Orthodox Christianity for centuries and has been designated a World Heritage Site by the United Nations. Erdogan said during a television interview on Sunday that the Hagia Sophia might be “reverted” into a mosque, referring to the structure’s status as a mosque following the Ottoman conquest of Constantinople in 1453 A.D. The Hagia Sophia was constructed as a relatively modest Greek Orthodox church in 360,...

This 144-page report was headed by Edward B.
