    An Indian diplomat’s microphone conspicuously cut out during a United Nations (U.N.) transport conference in Beijing last week just as the envoy began to criticize China’s infrastructure-building Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), the Press Trust of India (PTI) reported Wednesday. Priyanka Sohoni, the second secretary of the Indian Embassy in Beijing, had just begun speaking at the U.N. Global Sustainable Transport Conference on October 16 when her microphone suffered a mysterious malfunction that temporarily muted her speech. Sohoni had been voicing New Delhi’s opposition to Beijing’s BRI projects in foreign countries when her microphone stopped working. Moments later, an introductory...

    Matt Hancock made a surprise comeback last night as he was given a United Nations role just four months after resigning as health secretary. The former Cabinet minister will advise African nations on how their economies can bounce back from the pandemic. The Daily Mail understands he won the unpaid job thanks to Nimko Ali, a campaigner against female genital mutilation who is a close friend of Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s wife Carrie. Mr. Hancock, who will remain a MP, was forced to resign as health secretary in June after he breached social distancing guidance by kissing a colleague. CCTV...

    A United Nations children’s rights panel declined on Monday to rule on a case filed by Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg, who argued that nations harm young people through inaction on global warming. While governments may be responsible for their policies’ effect on climate change, the UN is unable to issue decisions on such cases, the international body’s Child Rights Committee (CRC) ruled. Plaintiffs may only bring their case before the CRC after they have first exhausted all legal remedies in their own nations. “Emitting States are responsible for the negative impact of the emissions originating in their territory on...

    In a video appearance at the UN General Assembly, Mahmoud Abbas has delivered an “ultimatum” to Israel: You have one year to leave what he calls “all the Palestinian territories,” or else. Or else what? Or else he will bring the case before the International Court of Justice, which has no power to enforce anything. A report on this latest example of Palestinian preposterousness is here: “Israel ‘Has a Year to Withdraw From All Palestinian Territories,’ Abbas Says at UNGA,” Algemeiner, September 24, 2021:Speaking before the United Nations General Assembly via video link on Friday, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud...

    NEWYORK -The United Nations Security Council will privately discuss on Friday a decision by Ethiopia to expel seven senior U.N. officials, diplomats said, as malnutrition rates rise and famine looms in the country’s war-torn northern region of Tigray. The United States, Britain, Ireland, Estonia, France and Norway, plan to raise the issue during a closed-door meeting of the 15-member body, but diplomats say any strong action is unlikely as Russia and China have long made clear they believe the conflict is an internal affair for Ethiopia. The expulsions of the U.N. staff were announced by Ethiopia on Thursday, two days...

    On Tuesday, Sept. 21, resident Joe Biden showed the world he is adrift from reality. In his rambling address to the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly, our president mumbled about a wide assortment of topics: the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change and human rights. To solve all these "global problems," he pledged more American tax dollars to the U.N. He should have stopped there. Instead, Biden went on to make a stunning claim. Without uttering the word China, he proclaimed, "We are not seeking a new Cold War or a world divided into rigid blocs." This assertion confirms...

    A forward-looking United Nations, which will ‘save succeeding generations from the scourge of war', is sine qua non On June 23, 2019 in Rome, at the headquarters of the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), the UN's systemic flaws became apparent. The election of the Director-General of FAO served as a grim reminder of the extent to which China had gained ground. The race for the top job ended in a stinging defeat for the US and the EU as Beijing's candidate, Qu Dongyu, won by an overwhelming majority (108 out of 191 votes). The US-backed Georgian candidate received just 12...

    United Nations human rights monitors have strongly condemned the state of Texas for its new anti-abortion law, which they say violates international law by denying women control over their own bodies and endangering their lives. In damning remarks to the Guardian, Melissa Upreti, the chair of the UN’s working group on discrimination against women and girls, criticized the new Texas law, SB 8, as “structural sex and gender-based discrimination at its worst”. She warned that the legislation, which bans abortions at about six weeks, could force abortion providers underground and drive women to seek unsafe procedures that could prove fatal....

    Pretend president Joe Biden sought to paint himself as an ‘aggressive leader’ willing to tackle the great issues of our day, but instead came off as stinking from his failure in Afghanistan, as a coward bowing down before Communist China, as a murderer of 7 Afghan children in drone strike, and as a minion presenting America as a sacrifice to the United Nations global authority. Did you know that the prophet Zephaniah spoke of the United Nations General Assembly, and what their coming future will be?

    Nations convinced to shun Durban Conference under Israeli diplomatic pressure, spearheaded by Lapid; FM says move demonstrates Israel's political power on the world stage Thirty-one nations have so far decided to boycott a UN meeting marking the 20th anniversary of the Durban World Conference on Racism later this week due to the event's anti-Semitic nature in the past, marking a major diplomatic win for Israel. The first conference was held in Durban, South Africa from August 31 through September 8, 2001, and covered several controversial issues, including redress for transatlantic slavery and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

    New York City’s demand that all representatives and diplomats who attend next week’s UN General Assembly meeting show proof of vaccination is threatening to derail the annual summit of world leaders as Russia and China protest the fact that their locally developed vaccines won’t be accepted. NYC’s request that diplomats and their entourage show proof of vaccination before being admitted somehow received the backing of General Assembly President Maldivian Foreign Minister Abdulla Shahid. In a statement released on Wednesday, NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio and International Affairs Commissioner Penny Abeywardena thanked UN diplomats ahead of time for “working with us”, calling...

  • U.N. DEMANDS That We Give $600 Million In Taxpayer Money Directly To The Taliban Terrorists

    09/15/2021 7:36:53 AM PDT · by A.M. Smith · 35 replies
    The United Nations has demanded that Western countries provide $600 million in taxpayer funds to support Taliban terrorists in Afghanistan. The United Nations convened a high-level donors meeting on Monday, demanding that member states help fund the terrorist regime’s strategy in Afghanistan over the next three months. The Taliban has committed to spend the cash to ‘assist vulnerable Afghans’, the United Nations has told possible donors. U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is leading the globalist body’s PR drive on behalf of the terrorist regime following Biden’s botched withdrawal. Guterres says “recent developments” have increased the vulnerability of Afghans who have already...

    President Joe Biden will announce more COVID-19 measures before the United Nations General Assembly meets this week, said U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy. Speaking to CNN on Sunday, Murthy did not say what new measures would be announced by Biden. Last week, the president issued several executive orders mandating that federal contractors, federal workers, and most healthcare staff in the United States get the COVID-19 vaccine. A White House plan also said he would direct the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA, to mandate that employers with 100 or more workers either get the vaccine, require weekly COVID-19 testing,...

    While Americans remained trapped in Afghanistan, including being held hostage, the Taliban are busy making international connections to help prop up their new regime. It wasn’t enough that American taxpayers gave the terrorist government tens of billions of dollars in high-tech military equipment. Now, they are going to make sure and fleece us even after we are gone.To make sure that happens, the United Nations has announced a meeting with the Taliban, and that meeting included the promise to keep shoveling money into the bottomless pit that is Afghanistan.I met with the leadership of the Taliban to reaffirm @UN’s commitment...

    Guinean soldiers said they had overthrown president Alpha Condé in an apparent military coup, less than a year after he won a controversial third term in the mineral-rich west African country. A group of armed men appeared on state television on Sunday dressed in fatigues and draped in national flags, declaring that Guineans were being mistreated by the country’s elites. “We are capable of taking our destiny in our own hands,” one of the soldiers said in the state TV broadcast, adding that the constitution would be dissolved and the borders closed for one week. But Guinea’s defence ministry said...

    The Biden administration this week signaled that it is eyeing a United Nations small arms treaty that critics claim will lead to an international gun registration plan — including for individual American gun owners. Two years after former President Donald Trump withdrew from it, a top arms diplomat at the State Department told the global body that the current administration is swinging behind the Arms Trade Treaty. “I have come from Washington, D.C., this week to take the floor on the agenda item Treaty Universalization to underscore the continuing commitment of the United States to responsible international trade in conventional...

    The world will witness a Chinese-anointed Afghan Government led by the 'New Taliban' -- a manufactured and packaged product of China Kabul has fallen to Taliban all over again. The 20 years of effort in importing democracy from the United States of America has failed, as expected. None can be blamed for Afghanistan to be in this situation today, except its own incumbent government, political leaders and trained armed forces, who were not sincere in delivering their assigned roles for the nation. The Afghan military and political leadership have given up without a fight. It highlights the nature of the...
