  • From Impeaching Incitement to Canceling Conservatism

    01/15/2021 5:33:02 AM PST · by Kaslin · 19 replies ^ | January 15, 2021 | Michael Barone
    It wasn't just Donald Trump's detractors who felt a sudden sense of relief when they heard that Twitter was blocking his feed after the storming of the Capitol and the disruption of the reading of the Electoral College results on Jan. 6. While President Trump's exact words to the crowd on the Ellipse didn't constitute a criminal incitement, they were uttered with a reckless disregard for the possibility that they'd provoke violence, which any reasonable person could find impeachable. But a moment's reflection should have left any believer in free speech feeling queasy about a private firm censoring the president...
  • Twitter Refuses to Remove China’s Tweet Celebrating Forced Abortions: “Not a Violation of Our Policies”

    Social media giant Twitter frequently censors pro-life conservatives but is refusing to remove a tweet from communist China celebrating forcing women to have abortions. As reported, the Chinese Communist government celebrated a decline in births Thursday in a region where it has aggressively persecuted minorities by forcing them to abort their unborn babies. Chinese Embassy in the U.S. treated the report as good news, even highlighting how its government’s “process of eradicating [religious] extremism” contributed to the declining birth rates. The Chinese Communist Party’s eradication “process” reportedly involves massive persecution of Uygur Muslims in the Xinjiang region by detaining...

    What happened in the Capitol building yesterday, American time, was terrible but inevitable. Any organisation which does something as stupid as ban words like mother is simply not fit to govern. I see this and say this as a man who was a midwife for 32 years. I pray for peace and understanding and freedoms which good people must fight for in good ways whenever freedom is under attack.

    'Deng backed Tiananmen massacre' Former premier Li, who has long been blamed for the 1989 bloodshed, says it was Deng who decided to send in troops HONG KONG - China's late paramount leader Deng Xiaoping 'resolutely backed' the Tiananmen Square massacre 15 years ago, former premier Li Peng has said in a rare commentary on the bloody incident he has long been blamed for. Mr Li was premier when Chinese soldiers were ordered into Tiananmen Square in Beijing to quell a month-long rally by students demanding more democracy in communist China.

    Human rights group warns that majority of world’s countries have implemented “disproportionate, illegal, indefinite or unnecessary” restrictions.. An international human rights group has warned that the majority of nations across the globe have implemented COVID related restrictions that have severely eroded the liberties of their citizens. The International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (IDEA), based in Sweden, reports that 61 per cent of countries have used restrictions “that were concerning from a democracy and human rights perspective.” ‘These [restrictions] violated democratic standards because they were either disproportionate, illegal, indefinite or unnecessary in relation to the health threat,” the group...

    The Armed Forces, the ruling party, the civilian informants and other entities acting parallel to the State, have violated fundamental human rights, says the ICC preliminary report The ICC Prosecutor’s office of the ICC assured on Monday that at least since April 2017, “civilian authorities, members of the Armed Forces and pro-government officials have committed crimes against humanity in incarcerating or prohibiting physical liberty and violating fundamental rules of international law.” It means they’re moved by the Venezuelan victims who haven’t been heard in courts in our country. In their “Preliminary Activities Report 2020” on File I, on Venezuela, they...
  • WHO chief Tedros Ghebreyseus is accused of aiding genocide in Ethiopia: Nobel peace prize nominee lodges complaint with International Criminal Court

    A Nobel peace prize nominee has accused the director-general of the World Health Organisation of allegedly aiding genocide in Ethiopia. American economist David Steinman accused WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, 55, of being a 'crucial decision maker' who directed Ethiopia's security forces actions from 2013 to 2015. He accused Tedros of being one of three officials who were in charge of the security services over that period, during which the 'killing' and 'torturing' of Ethiopians took place. Tedros was the country's foreign minister until 2016 when his Tigray People's Liberation Front party was in power. Raised in Tigray, he also...

    Now it is already International Human Rights Day (December 10) in the police state of Victoria in Southeast Australia and I have posted this little micro-movie to stress how important maintenance of traditions is to maintaining human rights. (NB In Australian slang a “mug” can be both a drinking cup and a dupe or person who is easily fooled and taken advantage of.) After World War Two, the world got together and established the Universal Declaration of Human Rights so that fascism could not rise again. Totalitarian group think has risen again to directly threaten the very fabric of western...

    The U.N human rights chief says she expects the U.S. administration of President-elect Joe Biden will be “much, much better” when it comes to human rights, and warned of shrinking “democratic space” in Hong Kong — saying her office will be monitoring the rights situation there. Michelle Bachelet spoke to reporters in Geneva in a catch-all news conference to recap the year and look ahead to 2021. She cited concerns about the inequalities exposed by the COVID-19 pandemic and systemic racism like that highlighted by the Black Lives Matter movement. Bachelet hailed “a series of promising pledges” by Biden, on...

    LeBron James would be proud. The New York Times reports that Apple, Nike, and Coca-Cola are among the many global companies and business groups lobbying Congress to weaken a bipartisan bill that cracks down on human rights abuses and forced labor in China. “The bill also targets so-called poverty alleviation and pairing programs that ship Muslims from impoverished areas to work in factories elsewhere, which human rights groups say are often coercive.” For human rights supporters, the bill is great news. For companies that care about their bottom line first, it’s terrible. The legislation, the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act,...

    China, Saudi Arabia, Russia, Cuba and Pakistan are tipped to finish top of Tuesday’s election for seats on the United Nations Human Rights Council, prompting disbelief from freedom campaigners and exiled dissidents alike. U.N. Watch, a Geneva-based monitoring group, said allowing these countries anywhere near the council “is like making a gang of arsonists into the fire brigade.”
  • UN Must Investigate Iran's Major Crimes

    In 1988, when Iran’s rulers brutally executed over 30,000 political prisoners, including teenagers and pregnant women, the world community kept silent. In fact, to this date, the United Nations has not formally investigated this unprecedented crime against humanity. Students of history know that the case was raised at the time but the diplomatic community refused to pay due attention and did not hold the ayatollahs accountable for what a number of experts have described as the worst crime against humanity in the second half of the 20th century for political convenience. And history has proven that was a major mistake with...

    The U.N. has tapped a former abortionist and advocate for teen prostitution to its top post of expert on health and human rights. According to a report at international human rights watchdog organization C-Fam, South African Dr. Tlaleng Mofokeng has risen quickly at the U.N., from “sexual health and rights advocate” to the top post of Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health, a role that will give her a global platform to urge the decriminalization of the sex trade. “Mofokeng’s reports advancing sexual rights, including the legalizing of prostitution, will likely be cited as authoritative interpretations of human rights...
  • Communist China Threatens American Universities

    For decades, America and its institutions of higher education have ignored the critical threat we face from Communist China. The radical left has made its way into our universities and focused on combatting perceived injustices – renaming buildings, liberalizing curriculum, and promoting safe spaces over open, honest debate – while staying silent on their connections to Communist China, a country committing genocide against its Muslim population and actively oppressing the people of Hong Kong. Now that a new semester is beginning and international students are returning to American universities, woke administrators and the universities they run will face a serious problem...
  • More US Aid Going to Myanmar, But Without Addressing the Country's Egregious Human Rights Abuses

    The United States Embassy to Myanmar announced this summer that an additional $1.95 million in U.S. funds will be provided for COVID-19 assistance to the country. This brings the total U.S. pandemic assistance to Myanmar to $18.5 million. The devastation of COVID-19 is compounded in Myanmar by the country’s egregious human rights abuses. Minority populations are the victims of discrimination, violence, and persecution. Much of these abuses are State-sanctioned, driven by laws targeting minorities, and worsened by escalating internal conflict.As outlined in the recent State Department draft report of the Commission on Unalienable Rights, “tens of millions of persecuted men and...

    As big government makes one-size-fits-all decisions for California families, leaving kids without essential resources and their constitutionally guaranteed right to education, parents are asking, 'What does that future look like?' California students have officially kicked off their school year, but they’ve hardly gone “back to school.” Thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom, 34 counties are on the so-called state monitoring list as of this writing, meaning children in those counties are barred from attending in-person classes.In coordination with the Dhillon Law Group, a band of California parents filed a lawsuit with a U.S. District Court challenging the Democrat governor’s mandate and...
  • President Trump’s Iran Legacy

    President Trump has an opportunity to secure his legacy with regard to Iran. It is an opportunity to put the U.S. on the moral high ground, encourage millions of Iranians who have been suffering under the ayatollahs’ yoke, and send a shiver down the spine of the tyrants ruling Iran. And this can be done without costing American taxpayers a penny, and without any further sanctions. Trump only needs to demand an independent investigation by the United Nations into the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in Iran. There is a solid basis for such an investigation since much is already known...

    Living in a bubble is a well-known colloquialism connoting isolation and lack of perception. As we watch the NBA move the league into a legitimate bubble in Orlando, the phrase couldn’t be more appropriate. Stoic players with no contact to the outside world wear jerseys emblazoned with “Black Lives Matter.” The court floor spells out the same words in gargantuan font. Everyone, from top NBA brass to well-noted players like Lebron James, attempts to send a clear message: slavery is terrible, racism is inexcusable, and every person should be treated equally. Make no mistake, this is nothing more than performance...

    'History will not judge kindly those who remained silent or were complicit in the Chinese Communist Party's human rights abuses' Sens. Marsha Blackburn (R., Tenn.) and Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) accused the NBA of being complicit in "Chinese state-sanctioned abuse of children" after the league misled lawmakers on its training academy in Xinjiang, China. "Recent investigations suggest that your organization has been aware of Chinese state-sanctioned abuse of children in its Xinjiang basketball training camps, but did not take action," a Thursday letter from Blackburn and Rubio to NBA commissioner Adam Silver states. "The Chinese Government and Communist Party are...
