  • UN makes power play against Trump

    The Hill ^ | Oct. 5, 2016 | Devin Henry
    International governments have made a power play against Donald Trump by ratifying an international climate deal earlier than expected, effectively preventing him from “canceling” the deal as he has promised to do.  The European Union’s Tuesday decision to join the Paris climate deal will push the deal over the threshold for ratification; it will formally take effect in 30 days.  That means Trump, should he be elected president in November, could not “cancel” or renegotiate the terms of the agreement. President Obama committed the United States to reduce its emissions by 26 percent to 28 percent by 2025 as part...

    Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon of the United Nations urged world powers on Sunday to work harder to end Syria's civil war. The conflict has taken half a million lives and created an international refugee problem since it started in March of 2011. Addressing an emergency session of the Security Council, Ban asked, "What excuse is there for anything less than determined action to stop the mayhem? How much longer will all those with influence allow such cruelty to continue? I urge all involved to work harder...
  • At United Nations, Globalist Obama Condemns ‘Crude Populism’ Sweeping the Planet

    In his speech to the United Nations, President Barack Obama defended the increased globalization of the world’s nations, condemning the wave of populist nationalism that was growing in the world in response. Obama says globalization will continue growing rapidly, signaling the unstoppable march of progress. But he warned that nations who allow the wealthy to enjoy the benefits of globalism face challenges from their populace. Those people, he noted, were falling prey to an “alternative” narrative, propagated to fuel opposition. “Alternative visions of the world have pressed forward, both in the wealthiest countries and in the poorest,” he said. “Religious...

    UNITED NATIONS — There wasn’t much diplomatic about it: President Barack Obama and United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon repeatedly denounced Donald Trump and his brand of politics here as they addressed leaders from around the world Tuesday. Three days after declaring that Trump’s candidacy is a threat to American democracy, Obama said that while globalization has its downsides, the wrong response comes “more often from the right” to produce an “aggressive nationalism, a crude populism…which seeks to restore what they believe was a better, simpler age free of outside contamination.” He didn’t say Trump’s name. He didn’t say Make...

    Better get your overtime in while you can because the UN says it will soon be “too hot to work.” Research funded by the United Nations contains warnings that by 2030 climate change will cause temperatures to soar so high that “global economies” will be impacted financially to the tune of $2 trillion. “Heat stress,” as one UN health official calls it, will force workers — especially those in developing countries — to cut back on their work hours. This climate-induced unemployment will cause drastic reductions in gross domestic product (GDP) around the world, including a nearly .5 percent dip...

    Under the guise of fighting “violence against children,” the Obama administration has joined forces with socalist foreign regimes and various United Nations agencies in a “global partnership” to wage war on parental rights. The controversial worldwide initiative, which aims to criminalize spanking and smacking as disciplinary tools, among other things, is part of the UN's Agenda 2030, also known as the “Sustainable Development Goals.” Essentially, the UN is betting that framing the assault on families as a bid to end “violence against children” — something nobody in their right mind would oppose — will make it easier to pursue the...

They were captured almost a week ago, when the rebels stormed a Golan Heights crossing. The council "reiterated their call for the peacekeepers' immediate and unconditional release," adding in its statement that "there can never be any justification for attacks on or the detention of UN peacekeepers."

    The United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday signed off on a sweeping, first-of-its-kind treaty to regulate the international arms trade, brushing aside worries from U.S. gun rights advocates that the pact could lead to a national firearms registry and disrupt the American gun market. The long-debated U.N. Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) requires countries to regulate and control the export of weaponry such as battle tanks, combat vehicles and aircraft and attack helicopters, as well as parts and ammunition for such weapons. It also provides that signatories will not violate arms embargoes, international treaties regarding illicit trafficking, or sell weaponry to...

This opened the door to other countries to begin registering objections, and it soon became clear that reaching agreement within the allowed timeframe would be impossible. The proposed treaty, which raised considerable domestic opposition from gun rights advocates in the United States, died before it had a chance to become a threat. As a delegate from...

    Defense hawks in the Senate are in a holding pattern on a United Nations arms treaty that’s drawing strong opposition from the National Rifle Association over Second Amendment concerns. Several influential Republican defense hawks said Thursday they have to study the issue further before signing on to oppose it, despite a loud pressure campaign from the NRA. NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre on Wednesday told the U.N. conference negotiating the agreement that 58 senators have pledged to oppose the treaty if it covers civilian arms over fears that would infringe on the right to bear arms. LaPierre pointed to letters signed...

    Senator Toomey
    July 13, 2012 Dear Ms. ****, Thank you for contacting me about Senate ratification of the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). I appreciate hearing from you. As you may know, UNCLOS is the international agreement that resulted from the third U.N. Conference on the Law of the Sea (1973-1982). The treaty would establish territorial sea limits, navigational rights, rules to govern commercial and military use of the sea, and a system for settling disputes between nations. It would also include environmental provisions. I share your concerns about the possible impact of this proposed treaty and oppose...

    Per Fox... United Nations "diplomats" have concluded a tour of the U.S., speaking to Indian tribes in six states. According to Fox, many of the tribes involved told the UN they need the UN's help in reclaiming "ancestral sacred land," included in which would be the Mt. Rushmore monument and surrounding national park. One is left to wonder just what changes to Mt. Rushmore would then be made. The Obama Administration was reportedly responsible for arranging the UN tour. Just in time for the 2012 elections. Your $3B/year UN dues at work.

    Libya chairing the old Human Rights Commission served to discredit that rotten institution once and for all. The UN's Economic and Social Council has just elected Iran to a seat on the UN's women's rights commission - formally known as the Commission on the Status of Women. There's more yet. Iran has also just obtained three other seats. Iran is one of 16 new members just elected to four year terms on the Commission of Science and Technology for Development. Maybe they can provide handy tips on capacity-building for nuclear bomb technology. Iran was also just elected to the governing...

    A solemn vow has animated the people of the State of Israel and their admirers for over sixty years: "Never again." Those two words have captured a shared, steely determination to prevent another Holocaust - the genocide waged against the Jews by Nazi Germany.  Today, alas, there is growing reason to fear that the operative phrase is becoming instead: "One more time."Consider a few illustrative examples of the gathering storm that is developing in the Middle East and elsewhere, to the grave detriment of the Jewish State - and to America's vital interests:The so-called "international community" as represented by the...
