  • Climate a bright spot in China relationship

    The Hill ^ | Julian Pecquet
    BEIJING — The Obama administration's push to help clean up China is emerging as a bright spot in a relationship rife with economic and strategic tensions. The failure of the world's two largest economies to agree on tough carbon emissions limits four years ago doomed substantial progress on climate change and left each side blaming the other. Since the Copenhagen talks, however, the U.S. and China have ramped up their environmental cooperation as repeated outbreaks of thick, acrid smog have virtually shut down major Chinese cities and cost the country hundreds of billions of dollars a year. “For a period...

    In a possible development that would have Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie, and William Travis rolling in their graves, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is considering designating the Alamo a World Heritage Site. Such a designation brings along a myriad of restrictions, and although proponents of the designation, such as San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro, insist that the State of Texas would still have authority over the site, many serious concerns of the people of Texas are not being addressed. For one thing, such a designation establishes a "buffer zone" of some 4,500 acres around the site,...

    Judicial Watch ^ | May 8, 2013
    Buried deep in the colossal immigration bill that’s floating around Congress is an obscure little section that rewrites the current immigrant visa waiting list to allow millions to cut in front of the line via new categories of family-sponsored immigrants. As if it weren’t bad enough that the measure, known as the Schumer-Rubio bill after the New York Democrat and Florida Republican pushing it, already offers 11 million illegal aliens instant amnesty. A nonpartisan group dedicated to researching legal and illegal immigration into the U.S., discovered the provision in the course of dissecting the monstrous legislation, which at last count...

    The idea that peacekeepers should not initiate military action has prevailed ... until now. Jeni Whalan says the new "intervention brigade" in the Congo has stretched the institution of peacekeeping to breaking point. There's a fine, but critical, line between keeping the peace and waging a war.For the blue-helmeted United Nations peacekeepers deployed in some of the world's worst conflict zones, it's a line that is constantly, violently tested - by the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia in the early 1990s; by rebels who this month killed five peacekeepers in South Sudan. Yet the greatest challenge may have come from the...

    Member countries can make the United Nations (UN) fully democratic and transparent by carrying out reforms and restructuring, including re-establishing the world body as a World Parliament with member countries' representatives as members. Former Chief Minister Tan Sri Harris Salleh said under the Parliament, a Cabinet could be created incorporating all present members of Security Council with additional members to be elected by the UN i.e 48 members as UN Ministers with specific portfolios. Presently these portfolios are being held by Director Generals. Harris said that as suggested by US President Wilson in 1942, a UN Police Force should be...

    Once upon a time, it was the contention of global warming alarmists that the earth was getting warmer -- a lot warmer. Now, after decades of such claims, the evidence points to a world that is, for the present at least, growing colder. When that fact became evident, alarmists shifted the ground of their argument. The earth's climate was not necessarily getting warmer; it was just "changing," and that was somehow a bad thing. No matter that the climate had been changing for more than four billion years, ever since the earth's formation. Not to be deterred, climate alarmists insist...

    Imagine your child’s school teaching him how wonderful dictatorships are by having him and his friends model their very own group of dictatorships as part of their education. Like so many other Orwellian nightmares in the American educational system, this one is very real and takes place through the Model UN program. The Model UN program teaches American students that global government is better than national government and that the corrupt kleptocracy on Turtle Bay is the ideal state of mankind. Finally it trains them to put American presidents on trial for violating United Nations laws. Twenty-two Model UN events...

If we continue playing the game by their rules, we will lose. There is no doubt. There have been many solutions presented to us in the past to combat this development, but nearly all of them function within the constraints of Federal politics. Working within...

    Sen.

Plenty of evidence and proof has been presented that shows the highly troubling expansion of the power and reach of the federal government--something which the Framers feared and about which they warned repeatedly. In this exclusive Conservative Examiner in-depth investigation, it can be shown without doubt that not only is government power expanding at a rapidly increasing rate of speed but that the groundwork is being laid for that government to read everything you write in email, follow and record...

In his prepared printed and spoken remarks to the Council on Foreign Relations, Trichet emphasized that politicians, economists, and financiers must work across the Atlantic and collaborate on methods to create an international set of standards. It is his belief that through global governance, the resiliency of the global financial system can be assured, noting that ultimately it was governments’ use of taxpayer’s money, equivalent to around 25% of GDP on both sides of the...

    Britain could be forced to have its Budget signed off by European leaders under plans to impose an 'economic government of the EU', it emerged yesterday. German Chancellor Angela Merkel is pressing for 'oversight' of national economies to be included in controversial arrangements that were agreed by EU leaders yesterday. She wants to introduce financial penalties for states with persistently high budget deficits, giving the EU a high degree of control. This could see Britain forfeiting the £2billion annual 'structural funds' paid out to some of the nation's poorer areas by Brussels.

The headline story that currently tops the home page of the Socialist International's website reports on the organization's influence and clout at the recently concluded United Nations Climate Change Summit in Copenhagen, Denmark. The brief article, however, does not even begin to do justice to the Socialist International's central role, not only in pushing the...

    When thinking about what defines the Obama doctrine we might be tempted to say it's blaming America first or apologizing to the world for an unjust America. It would be accurate to observe that Mr. Obama has done both, but those events merely undergird Obama's larger ideological goal. "Mr. Obama is systematically diminishing the United States, effecting its transformation from what was once called ‘the world's only superpower' to a nation subordinated to the demands of international consensus, organizations, ‘peer competitors' and even rogue states." So writes Frank J. Gaffney, Jr. in his piece "The Obama doctrine." Gaffney is correct...

At the same time, however, the Pope also warns that such an international order could "produce a dangerous universal power of a tyrannical nature" and must be guarded against somehow.

He went on to expand on this idea, explaining that he envisioned the United Nations freed "to fulfill the historic vision of its founders." In 1991, that was scary talk. It sounded like...

SDRs are Special Drawing Rights, a synthetic paper currency issued by the International Monetary Fund that has lain dormant for half a century. In effect, the G20 leaders have activated the IMF's...

Apparently they will stop buying our debt and that would cause a CRASH bigger than the one that we have already had. The *bottom will drop out* -- if...

    Obama's Plan to Rejoin the World Communityby Phyllis Schlafly (more by this author) Posted 12/23/2008 ETUpdated 12/23/2008 ET When Candidate Barack Obama declared himself a "citizen of the world" before thousands of cheering German socialists and later pledged to "rejoin the World Community," those weren't just his usual platitudes about "change." Those words sounded the trumpet for his specific and far-reaching globalist agenda. Obama plans to use his presidential power to get the Democratic-majority Senate to ratify a series of treaties that would take us a long way toward global rule over our money, our laws, our military, our...

    And now for a world government By Gideon Rachman Published: December 8 2008 19:13 | Last updated: December 8 2008 19:13 I have never believed that there is a secret United Nations plot to take over the US. I have never seen black helicopters hovering in the sky above Montana. But, for the first time in my life, I think the formation of some sort of world government is plausible. A “world government” would involve much more than co-operation between nations. It would be an entity with state-like characteristics, backed by a body of laws. The European Union has already...

    For the second time ever, Green Parties from around the world gathered together for a decision-making Congress. The first Global Greens Congress took place in April 2001 in Canberra, Australia. This time, with 625 delegates and observers participating from 88 countries, the Second Congress took place May 1-4 in São Paulo, Brazil. In 2001, one of the key objectives of the Congress was to approve the first ever Global Greens Charter. In 2008, the political content was driven by the planetary need to respond to the ever-worsening global climate crisis. One of the reasons São Paulo was chosen as the...

    What a difference a Dem makesBy Henry Lamb web posted May 26, 2008It makes very little difference which Democrat wins the White House.  The next president will push the United States a little further into the web of global governance.  Hillary Clinton is on record in support of global governance.  John McCain has declared his intention to embrace the Kyoto Protocol.  And Barack Obama has introduced the Global Poverty Act (S2433) to bring the U.S. into compliance with the U.N.'s Millennium Declaration.  As much as President Bush is hated by Democrats and Republicans alike, he did keep the U.S. out...

    Senator Joe Biden, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, was trying to rush Obama's "Global Poverty Act" (S. 2433) through his committee without hearings. It was scheduled for a Thursday vote but was moved up a day, to Wednesday, and rushed through by voice vote. (snip) The House version (H.R. 1302) was suddenly brought up on the House floor last September 25 and was passed by voice vote.

    The European Commission has issued formal charges against Intel, the world’s biggest chipmaker, alleging it has abused its dominant market position with respect to its biggest rival, Advanced Micro Devices.

    Nelson Mandela and five other senior statesmen will today form themselves into a team of international troubleshooters called "The Elders". The initiative, funded by Sir Richard Branson, will be launched in Johannesburg during celebrations marking Mr Mandela's 89th birthday. The former South African president, who spent 27 years behind bars during the apartheid era, is a figure with unparalleled moral authority. The idea is that he will team up with Jimmy Carter, the former US president, Kofi Annan, the former United Nations secretary-general, Mary Robinson, the former Irish president, Desmond Tutu, the Archbishop Emeritus of Cape Town and Mohammed Yunus,...

    When the eighth Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon commenced his tenure in early 2007, he brought with him his mission statement which is "promises should be made for the keeping". He pledged to seek excellence with humility and to lead by example. His leadership of an organisation which is modest in its means but not in its aspirations and performance is yet to be seen, but his vision, that the true measure of success for the UN is not how much it promises but how much it delivers, is sound and encouraging. At a time when the...

    Goffstown – Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards proposed today that the United States spend $5 billion annually to lead a worldwide effort to end global poverty through education and health care initiatives. The former North Carolina senator said his effort would not only be a “good and moral thing,” but it would also make the United States safer. “We know that terrorists thrive in failed states and in states torn apart by internal conflict and poverty,” he said in a speech at Saint Anselm College. In Africa and Muslim countries, he said, millions of children are being educated “in madrassas...
