  • Why Can’t We All Get Along? W.H.O. Chief Tedros Weeps for Humanity: Begs World to Unite Behind his Leadership

    A clearly distressed W.H.O. Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus wiped tears from his eyes Thursday as he blasted a global “lack of leadership and solidarity” during the coronavirus crisis, pleading with world figures to unite and back his troubled organization. “How is it difficult for humans to unite and fight a common enemy that is killing people indiscriminately?” Tedros pleaded between long breaths and deep pauses that punctuated his dewy-eyed speech in Geneva, Switzerland. “Are we unable to distinguish or identify the common enemy? Can’t we understand that the divisions and the cracks between us are an advantage for the virus?”

    Vatican silent as verdict triggers geopolitical tremorsISTANBUL (ChurchMilitant.com) - In a historic verdict, Turkey's top court has returned the world's greatest Byzantine basilica to its previous status as a mosque after it abolished President Atatürk's 1934 decision to turn Hagia Sophia into a museum. Turkey's highest administrative court, the Council of State, reached a unanimous verdict declaring that president Kemal Atatürk's cabinet had no right to turn Hagia Sophia into a museum as part of his secularist reforms and has rendered the decision unlawful. The court is expected to deliver its judgment Friday, but Turkish journalist Mehmet Ardıç, a close...
  • UN slams Donald Trump for killing Iranian General Soleimani because there was 'insufficient evidence he was behind an ongoing or imminent attack'

    The January U.S. drone strike in Iraq that killed top Iranian general Qassem Soleimani and nine other people represented a violation of international law, a U.N. human rights investigator said on Monday. The United States has failed to provide sufficient evidence of an ongoing or imminent attack against its interests to justify the strike on Soleimani's convoy as it left Baghdad airport, said Agnes Callamard, U.N. special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions. The attack violated the U.N. Charter, Callamard wrote in a report calling for accountability for targeted killings by armed drones and for greater regulation of the...

    Chinese state media Xinhua reported that the Cuban statement said the law was beneficial for Hong Kong’s prosperity and stability, and guarantees that Hong Kong residents can exercise their freedom in a “safe environment.” The law criminalizes anti-government movements, and is targeted at pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong who have pushed back against Beijing’s incursions on freedoms in the territory -- which is supposed to be ruled on the principle of “one country, two systems.” The law punishes crimes of secession, subversion, terrorism and collusion with foreign forces with up to life in prison. It also establishes a national security...
  • 1989 FLASHBACK: U.N. Predicts Climate Disaster by 2000 if Global Warming Not Stopped

    Should you trust “experts” whose predictions are always wrong? It is too late to do anything about the unproven hypothesis that humans are causing enormous planet Earth’s climate to change. Maybe human activity is affecting the planet’s temperature (it isn’t). Maybe we could have done something about it (we never could, that’s ludicrous considering the size of the planet). But whatever we could have done, it’s too late now. We should just stop worrying about it. United Nations’ experts told us that by 1999 it was too late to halt global warming. In 1989, there was a 10 year window,...

    Egypt's Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry on Saturday stressed that his country does not want punitive measures from the UN Security Council against Ethiopia, and only wants to prevent any negative repercussions from the stalled Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) negotiations... "It's now the responsibility of the Security Council to resolve the Renaissance Dam crisis, as its decisions are mandatory and represent the will of the international community," Shoukry said. He added that the GERD issue impacts the lives of more than 150 million Egyptians and Sudanese people... Egypt on Friday called on the UN Security Council to intervene in the...

    The United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG) has removed a social media post that defended the right of Antifa to “freedom of expression” and “peaceful assembly” after considerable backlash following a report from Breitbart News. The now-deleted post, which also displayed the far-left movement’s flag, said: “UN Human Rights experts express profound concern over a recent statement by the US Attorney-General describing Antifa and other anti-fascist activists as domestic terrorists, saying it undermines the rights to freedom of expression and of peaceful assembly in the country.”

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Saturday criticized the U.N. Human Rights Council, after the controversial organization passed a resolution criticizing the state of policing and race in the U.S. -- even as it is accused of ignoring egregious human rights violations from those on the council itself. “The United Nations Human Rights Council, now comprised of Venezuela and recently, Cuba and China, has long been and remains a haven for dictators and democracies that indulge them,” Pompeo said in a statement. “It is a grave disappointment to those genuinely seeking to advance human dignity. Even so, the Council’s decision...

    Meanwhile, for the sake of survival and American sovereignty: ‘Get the U.N. out of America and America out of the U.N’. The New World Order ever-seeking United Nations is about to jump, four square, into the U.S. reformation of police force initiatives—politicizing them even further than they already are. Little known and rarely ever written about, the World’s biggest bureaucracy, by virtue of city mayors and councillors aiding and abetting ‘peaceful’ protesters now holding cities like Seattle hostage, is the biggest player in the globalist fight to defund and even abolish American police forces. Not only is Seattle a ‘U.N....
  • Generals Attack Trump as Democrats Plead for U.N. Interference

    By Cathi Chamberlain If you think the Democrats have gone off the rails with their newest call to defund the police, you’d be wrong. It’s just the latest step in the left’s long-plotted scheme to transform America to socialism. We are one election away. If we react to this wrongly, we are done as a country of law and order. Last week, President Trump put out a call to send in the troops. Not the National Guard, the military. As if on cue, the typical “deep state” military brass emerged to condemn him as unstable. Many of you recoiled in...

    Why exactly does Obama want the “Strong Cities Network”? The Obama administration plans to create a global police force that counters “violent extremism” in the United States and elsewhere. The problem is that in Obama-speak “violent extremism” refers not only to jihadists wishing to harm Americans but also to conservatives and Tea Party activists. Just ask all the law-abiding right-of-center nonprofit groups targeted by Lois Lerner’s IRS during the Obama presidency. Ominously, President Obama and U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch unveiled the Strong Cities Network last week at the United Nations. America’s chief executive, who speaks in hushed and reverent...

    A United Nations human rights expert is recommending changes in the way protests are handled in the United States, saying the process of issuing permits for demonstrations is “arbitrary” and could easily lead to discrimination against certain groups. Maina Kiai of Kenya, U.N. special rapporteur on freedom of peaceful assembly and of association, offered preliminary findings Wednesday from his visits this month to seven U.S. cities — including the sites of this year’s Democratic and Republican political conventions — to investigate how the U.S. upholds its citizens’ rights of assembly and association. Kiai’s full report to the United Nations will...

    As the top human rights body of the United Nations seeks international scrutiny of systemic racism in response to the recent killings of African Americans by police, some countries are wondering if there is a double standard at play for America rather than the ways other countries are targeted for human rights violations because of dehumanizing their people. A draft resolution, a copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press, singles out the United States and could become the centerpiece of a hastily scheduled debate by the Human Rights Council in Geneva on Wednesday. The text calls for a...
