  • Leftist "Global Inequality" Charity Used Underage Prostitutes

    Oxfam claims to help fight global inequality. It apparently does so by redistributing abuses around the world. When Oxfam claims to help the children, it's best to ask just what sort of help it offers. The charities watchdog has demanded an urgent clarification from Oxfam after allegations that the charity covered up an inquiry into whether its staff used sex workers in Haiti during a 2011 post-earthquake relief effort. All the "Save the Worlders" had quite a time in Haiti. Just ask the UN and the Clintons. And they partied at the expense of the Haitians. One of the men...

    The figures are astonishing. There are more than 195,289 registered charities in the UK that raise and spend close to £80 billion a year. Together, they employ more than a million staff – more than our car, aerospace and chemical sectors – and make 13 billion ‘asks’ for money every year, the equivalent of 200 for each of us in the UK. But many charities have become hungry monsters, needing ever more of our money to feed their own ambitions. And while registered charities claim that almost 90p in every pound donated is spent on ‘charitable activities’, many spend at...

    After Actress Scarlett Johansson stepped down as Oxfam’s ambassador over her advertisement with Israeli company SodaStream, a company Oxfam boycotts, Canadian Employment Minister Jason Kenney said their move spurred him to buy from SodaStream. […] Kenney bashed the “anti-Israel obsession” with which leftist groups pursue Israel, even while they ignore countries like Iran which executes political dissidents and homosexuals. …

    Top staff at Oxfam paid Haitian prostitutes for sex in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake, it has been claimed.Senior aid workers were found to have paid for sex while involved in the massive cleanup operation after the natural disaster killed 220,000 people and left millions more homeless, the Times reports.The charity, which receives £300million a year in government funding, conducted an internal investigation which led to three men being sacked for gross misconduct.Four others were allowed to resign, it is claimed.One source told the Times that an Oxfam worker had arranged "sex parties" at a villa rented by the...

    The government has ordered Oxfam to hand over files on charity staff who paid for sex in earthquake-torn Haiti. The demand follows an investigation by The Times that revealed Oxfam covered up the use of prostitutes by senior aid workers. Matt Hancock, the culture secretary who is responsible for charity regulation, said: “These allegations are deeply shocking and Oxfam must now provide the Charity Commission with all the evidence they hold of events that happened in Haiti as a matter of urgency. “The reported historic behaviour of senior aid workers is abhorrent and completely unacceptable. Charities must ensure that they...

    Cato ^ | 18 January 2017 | Chelsea Follett
    Every year, Oxfam releases a report meant to shock the public about the extent of income and wealth inequality. This year’s report claims that the eight richest people on Earth have as much wealth as the bottom half of the world’s population (3.6 out of 7.2 billion people). That’s certainly shocking. It’s also profoundly misleading. As others have pointed out, Oxfam reached that number with a questionable methodology, which also led them to several other absurd conclusions. According to their own graphs, more poor people live in North America and Europe than China (see the far left of the chart...

    One of the world’s largest, allegedly corrupt charities has joined forces with one of the world’s largest, allegedly corrupt governments to guilt trip the Western world into welcoming 60 million migrants to their shores. On Sunday, the European Commission and Oxfam launched their YouSaveLives campaign to give “a face and a name to this vast army of invisible people.”

    As the world focuses on the now infamous "FISA memo" which has seemingly confirmed "collusion" except that it was done by the Democratic Party, God's prophetic time clock continues to tick. As Jared Kushner continues to work behind the scenes to negotiate a long-lasting Middle East peace plan, Israel continues to prepare for a multi-front assault from multiple players in the region, whose sole purpose is to eradicate and destroy her as a nation and as a people. For the Christian who has read the end of the book, we know that God's chosen people will prevail. But to a...

    Unless Trump intends to humiliate himself and America and sell Israel down the river like his predecessors did, the peace process will not be resuscitated. On Tuesday in Bethlehem, the Palestinians demonstrated the choice the Americans now face in their dealings with Fatah – the supposedly moderate PLO faction that controls the Palestinian Authority and the PLO. President Donald Trump and his advisers can play by Fatah’s rules or they can walk away. On Tuesday a delegation of diplomats from the US Consulate in Jerusalem came to Bethlehem to participate in a meeting of the local chamber of commerce. When...

    “What is good for the United States is good for the rest of the world,” has been Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s mantra. Americans know how stock prices have exploded in the United States since President Trump’s election, but stock prices started rising at the same time around the world. To the shocks of Trump’s American opponents, he was greeted by the international elites at the gathering in Davos, Switzerland as almost a conquering hero. Meanwhile, George Soros told people at the meetings that he thought that Trump was a “danger” to the world. So many people view economics as a...

    The enclave in the Alps in which the President went to the World Economic Forum is apparently something like Aspen and draws the same type of people. "Much like the secret infrastructure of money and power that makes the world go round, the Swiss Alps were imposing but nearly invisible as the world's financial, political and intellectual leaders gathered in Davos," Molly Ball reported on the Time magazine website on January 25, 2018. "An epic 6-ft. snowstorm had snarled the Jan. 22 opening of the World Economic Forum." "The bestowing of humanitarian awards on Cate Blanchett and Elton John had...

    German public broadcaster ARD has been blasted after admitting it “boosted” the sound of booing at the speech given by U.S. President Donald Trump late last week. President Trump gave his speech at Davos on Thursday, again delivering sharp criticism to the mainstream media. He stated: “it wasn’t until I became a politician that I realized how nasty, how mean, how vicious, and how fake the press can be.” ARD released a clip of the speech on the Twitter account for its popular news programme “Tagesschau” in which distinct boos could be heard directly after the President’s comments. A short...

    A "left-wing extremist" group in Germany associated with Antifa published a list of 54 police officers believed to have taken part in raids of suspected rioters protesting the G20 summit in Hamburg, with the group calling for the public to 'dox' the officers by sending in their personal information. "We would be pleased about tips regarding where they live or can be met privately," reads the post The list was posted Sunday evening on an extremist website, reports Die Welt, and is thought to be revenge for the publication by Hamburg investigators of over 100 photos and videos G20 riot...

    North Korea has disparaged President Donald Trump's trademark "America First" stance, predicting that it would ultimately bring down the U.S. and its global sphere of influence. Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the ruling Korean Workers' Party Central Committee, published an article Monday claiming that Trump's doctrine "accelerates isolation and ruin of the empire of evils in all aspects of politics, economy, military affairs and diplomacy." The outlet, which reported the views of North Korea's own internationally ostracized administration, highlighted the foreign criticism Trump has faced trying to defend the nationalist slogan that he insisted "does not mean 'America alone.'" "'America...

    Another overseas trip by the president this one to Davos, and another fantastic success. In his speech at Davos the president emphasized that America is back and is open for business. He also highlighted the fact that “it’s the economy, stupid”. In this case, the U.S. economy which is going great guns since he became president. The president took a lot of criticism because he chose to go to Davos. His critics contend it was hypocritical to go because he has built his agenda around an America-first populist nationalist message which does not comport with the thinking of the Davos...

    On Friday, an agitated Donny Deutsch reached the end of his rope on the set of MSNBC’s Morning Joe. Deutsch, who appeared deeply affected by a clip of President Trump calling The New York Times “fake news,” eschewed the traditional combination of liberal snark and false superiority characteristic of the show’s other panelists, opting instead to go with unmitigated rage. Deutsch’s rant kicked off with the assertion that Republicans questioning the objectivity of the Mueller investigation were “undermining the FBI and undermining the news.” “Forget the obstruction,” he continued, “forget the actual charge. This continual assault on the things that...

    Davos. That's just about all you need to know. Those who do not have a relationship with Christ should be terrified at the direction the influencers in the world are going, where privacy will be sacrificed for health and where movers and shakers predict that man and machine will become one. The pursuit of a blissful and rewarding eternal life will not be achieved by man, unless he surrenders his pride and arrogance to the only One who can grant it. Otherwise, while they will exist eternally, just not in the way they choose and without excuse or escape.

    Quote: “America is open for business, and we are competitive once again.” End quote. That was just one of the key lines in President Trump’s highly successful Davos speech this week. Of course, in going to Davos, Trump entered the lion’s den. A year ago such a visit would have been a poor idea. Back then, elitist heads of state, the EU bureaucrats, and the international CEOs were uniformly against Donald Trump. But Trump’s 2018 Davos strategy was a brilliant stroke. A year later he could make the fact-based argument that, in his words, “The world is witnessing the...

    In September of 2015 we shared one of the overarching reasons why CTH would support Donald Trump for President. – SEE HERE – This week, the sentiment behind that reasoning showed up in Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum; we could not be more proud. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross (Wednesday), Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin (Thursday) and U.S. President Donald Trump (Friday), collectively outlined how our new U.S. trade and economic policy would engage with the world. Many media voices (narrative engineers) will, and have, continue to obfuscate, spin, and make predictive declarations about U.S. economic policies based on their...
