April 12, 2005 -- Senate Democrats yesterday wasted no time in sinking their fangs into U.N. Ambassador-designate John Bolton during confirmation hearings before the Foreign Relations Committee.

But despite several hours of often harsh grilling, Bolton more than held his own — as we expected he would.

I'd like to see the Senate explain how they allowed Oil For Food to happen. So much for oversight.

he says what many Americans are thinking — that the United Nations needs to live up to its founding standards.

No it doesn't. It needs to be abolished and replaced by a conference organizing administrative group -- preferably a private one with no power other than scheduling meetings, maintaining physical plant, and providing donuts and coffee for participants.

Let's stop kidding ourselves and remember that the UN's "founding standards" as defined in the Orwellian "Universal Declaration of Human Rights" constitute a thinly veiled socialist agenda. To wit:

Article 22

Everyone, as a member of society, has the right to social security and is entitled to realization, through national effort and international co-operation and in accordance with the organization and resources of each State, of the economic, social and cultural rights indispensable for his dignity and the free development of his personality.

Article 25

1. Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.

2. Motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance. All children, whether born in or out of wedlock, shall enjoy the same social protection.

Guess who is supposed to pay for the UN New World Order and supply troops/materiel to enforce their every edict? They work night and day for UN control of the world. Period. That's why Bill Clinton wants in.

That's why Bill Clinton wants in.

He may form his own country, the Nation of Sex and Sleaze. He already lives in his own world.

I watched the session. Boxer, Kerry, and Biden were especially annoyed with Bolton's insistence on actually answering their questions, or more accurately, responding to their accusations ... because it took away from their 'TV face time'.
