    UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The U.N. General Assembly approved a resolution Tuesday setting March 15 as the International Day to Combat Islamophobia. The resolution, adopted by consensus by the 193-member world body and cosponsored by 55 mainly Muslim countries, emphasizes the right to freedom of religion and belief and recalls a 1981 resolution calling for “the elimination of all forms of intolerance and of discrimination based on religion or belief.” The resolution asks all countries, U.N. bodies, international and regional organizations, civil society, private sector and faith-based organizations “to organize and support various high-visibility events aimed at effectively increasing awareness...
  • 'The foxes are guarding the hen house': Russia's war highlights UN impotence

    United Nations (United States) (AFP) – It was arguably the ultimate illustration of UN powerlessness: an emergency Security Council meeting designed to avoid war rendered redundant by Russia's invasion of Ukraine just minutes after the late-night session began. As UN chief Antonio Guterres and member state after member state on the 15-country council urged Vladimir Putin to step back from the brink, the Russian leader was already sending his troops across the border. The ambassadors of the United States, Britain, France and others reading pre-prepared speeches calling for Putin to pursue diplomacy seemed unaware of what journalists watching the proceedings...

    As His Fraudulency Joe Biden’s presidency implodes, polling shows former President Donald Trump would trounce Biden in a 2024 rematch. Rasmussen Reports, one of the country’s most accurate pollsters, shows that should Trump choose to run again in 2024, he would obliterate Joe Biden by a margin of 51 to 41 percent.

    UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Racism, climate change and worsening divisions among nations and cultures topped the agenda Wednesday as leaders from China to Costa Rica, from Finland to Turkey to the United Nations itself outlined reasons why the world isn’t working as it should — and what must be done quickly to fix it. Said one country’s president: “The future is raising its voice at us.” Speaker after speaker at Tuesday’s opening of the nearly week-long meeting decried the inequalities and deep divisions that have prevented united global action to end the COVID-19 pandemic, which has claimed nearly 4.6 million...

    Back in February, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene was stripped of her committee roles, despite her expression of "regret" for some of her more extreme views. One of the charges against Rep. Greene is that she has supported QAnon, whose central claim is that there exists an elite whose members exercise political power and who indulge in promiscuity and other corrupt forms of behavior. In a Washington Post article co-written by Isaac Stanley-Becker and Rachel Bade, Greene was dismissed as having endorsed the "baseless theory" of QAnon. Stanley-Becker and Bade devoted most of their article to critiquing QAnon rather than addressing...

    “President Trump has not always chosen the right words,” Haley said during a private appearance at the Republican National Committee’s annual meeting in early January, a source told POLITICO. “He was wrong with his words in Charlottesville, and I told him so at the time. He was badly wrong with his words yesterday. And it wasn’t just his words. His actions since Election Day will be judged harshly by history.” Haley added that the GOP must “take personal responsibility” for the disruption that’s flooded the party.
  • How did New Zealand become Covid-19 free?

    In late June, two cases of coronavirus were confirmed in New Zealand. When many countries are registering thousands of cases a day, two seems little to worry about. But until that point, New Zealand had gone 24 days without a single case, so these - linked to quarantine breaches - were enough to lead to the resignation of the health minister. So what was the strategy behind New Zealand's Covid-19 success? When did New Zealand bring in border closures? On 2 February, a man in the Philippines became the first person outside China to die of Covid-19. At this point,...
  • Activism: Colbert, Thunberg Hope Govt. Will Take 'Extraordinary Measures' Like With Coronavirus, For Climate

    Late Show host Stephen Colbert had media darling, and radical climate crusader Greta Thunberg on his show Tuesday night to discuss her latest accolades and activism. While there, Colbert urged the Swedish teen to mock President Trump and lamented with her that world leaders would not go to “extraordinary measures” like nationwide lockdowns, for climate change. After profusely thanking the teen making time in her busy schedule to talk to him, Colbert praised the teen for teaching other kids to ditch school to protest climate change in a worldwide walkout: “To me, it spoke to a hunger for an opportunity...
  • CNN’s Cooper: Criticism of Thunberg Town Hall Appearance Based on ‘Made Up’ Info – Trump Jr. ‘Just Wants His Dad to Love Him’

    During CNN’s coronavirus town hall on Thursday, host Anderson Cooper reacted to the criticisms the network received for booking Greta Thunberg for its coronavirus town hall by stating they were critiques based on “made up” information and were part of “a cycle of phony outrage.” Cooper also said that one critic, Donald Trump Jr., is “attacking CNN and a 17-year-old Swede” because he “just wants his dad to love him or notice him in a way that’s not mocking him.” Cooper began by showing the initial ad for the program that CNN ran, which was later updated to include MLB...

    Countries must protect people in detention from the COVID-19 pandemic by releasing vulnerable prisoners, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet said Wednesday. "Covid-19 has begun to strike prisons, jails and immigration detention centres, as well as residential care homes and psychiatric hospitals, and risks rampaging through such institutions' extremely vulnerable populations," said Bachelet said in a statement. "Authorities should examine ways to release those particularly vulnerable to COVID-19, among them older detainees and those who are sick, as well as low-risk offenders."

    United Nations - - All United Nations staff at its headquarters in New York were told Friday to work from home for at least three weeks due to the coronavirus outbreak unless it was essential for them to be present. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said the plan was "to reduce our physical presence at United Nations Headquarters, while continuing to deliver on our mandates." "Your health and well-being remain my greatest concern. Be safe, be smart, be kind," he said in a separate message to staff Thursday. About 3,000 UN employees are based in New York.

  • Shep Smith Trashes Trump as Autocrat Spewing 'Garbage and Lies' at Journalists Dinner

    Liberal media outlets were thrilled at Shepard Smith's first public remarks since abruptly leaving Fox News last month. Smith hosted a dinner of the Committee to Protect Journalists, and proclaimed he was donating a half million dollars to the group. Michael Grynbaum at The New York Times reported he called "for a steadfast defense of independent journalism, while offering a few subtle barbs at President Trump’s treatment of the press." Subtle? “Intimidation and vilification of the press is now a global phenomenon. We don’t have to look far for evidence of that,” Smith said. “Our belief a decade ago that...

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | May 21, 2019
    Sixty-four percent (64%) of voters believe the FBI knew a controversial dossier was unreliable when they used it to obtain a search warrant against President Trump’s 2016 campaign. A national survey found that skepticism is shared by 86% of Republicans, 64% of Independents, and 47% of Democrats (see crosstab results). Forty-nine percent (49%) favor having the Department of Justice investigate whether the FBI illegally spied on the Trump campaign. Twenty-nine percent (29%) are opposed and 22% are not sure. Support for an investigation comes from 64% of Republicans, 52% of Independents, and 34% of Democrats. Just 34% of voters...

    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...

    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...
  • Alyssa Milano: ‘The Red MAGA Hat Is the New White Hood’(Why soit-en-lee)

    Actress and leftist activist Alyssa Milano smeared the millions of Americans who support President Donald Trump and wear his “Make America Great Again” hat, equating them to the racist killers of the Ku Klux Klan. “The red MAGA hat is the new white hood. Without white boys being able to empathize with other people, humanity will continue to destroy itself,” Alyssa Milano said Sunday in the wake a viral unedited video, which showed a clash between several Covington Catholic High School students and a Native American activist at the March for Life in Washington, DC, on Friday.

    Donald Trump’s Campaign to Discredit the Russia Investigation May Be Working. It’s Also Damaging American Democracy (Full title) In a warren of low-ceilinged rooms on the ground floor of the West Wing, down the stairs from the Oval Office and next to the Situation Room, Donald Trump’s lawyers are waging war. They’re locked in battle with Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, who has indicted 19 people over the past 13 months, five of whom have pleaded guilty. Now he is homing in on the investigation’s most powerful subject: the President, whom Mueller wants...

    Desperate appeals made on Fumento’s behalf to the U.S. Embassy in Bogota by his friend Patrick D. Hahn of Baltimore have gone unanswered Never thought the day would come when I would find it a matter of life or death trying to get a message through to President Donald Trump. But that’s where I am today. Courageous Canada Free Press (CFP) columnist Michael Fumento, who saw combat as an embedded reporter with United States troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, is in a Bogota,Colombia prison on trumped up charges where he has been held without bail since Easter Sunday. Worse yet,...

    We keep hearing about NBC's ratings problems, as we see in this report: At the halfway point of the XXIII Winter Olympics, things are certainly feeling a little chilly for both Team USA and NBC. As last night's primetime coverage displayed, even with the surprise silver in the short-track speedskating that John-Henry Krueger scored, both the medal count for America's athletes and the ratings for the broadcaster are struggling to gain traction in the PyeongChang games. Currently, Team USA is in sixth place with 10 overall medals, just behind the Russian competitors, and tied for third in gold medals with...
