    Print this article State Department officials compared China to Nazi Germany on Wednesday, saying the Communist nation "is in a league of its own when it comes to human rights violations." "China intensified its campaign of detaining Muslim minority groups at record levels" last year, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a briefing on the release of the 2018 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices. China has been brutally repressing Uighurs and other Muslims, forcing them into re-education camps reminiscent of Mao Zedong's Cultural Revolution. The regime has made a police state of the minorities' home of Xinjiang, a...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar said no comparison is possible between President Trump and former President Barack Obama — one of them is subhuman. The Minnesota Democrat said in an interview with Fox News in a congressional hallway that her criticisms of Mr. Obama last week for the “caging of kids” along the U.S.-Mexico border and the “droning of countries around the world” don’t mean he is like Mr. Trump. ....“One is human. The other is really not,” she said.

    Sen. Ben Sasse and his Republican colleagues did not receive the unanimous consent they were looking for on legislation that would’ve outlawed infanticide.  Democratic Washington Sen. Patty Murray blocked the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act,” presented by Sasse, that would’ve given infants who survived abortions medical care and protections under the law.“Frankly, this shouldn’t be hard,” he said.  In this country, all of us are created equal. If that equality means anything, surely it means that infanticide is wrong. Frankly, this shouldn’t be hard. pic.twitter.com/9MyPVGpw7p— Senator Ben Sasse (@SenSasse) February 5, 2019 Murray argued the legislation is not necessary because...

    CAIRO: Egypt has arrested an economist and his publisher over a book that challenged President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi’s economic policies, a lawyer said Tuesday, the latest in a wave of detentions in recent years targeting all forms of dissent. Prize-winning economist Abdel-Khaleq Farouq and his publisher, Ibrahim el-Khateib, were detained Sunday. Mohammed Abdel-Aziz, a lawyer for the author, said the two are accused of spreading “fake news,” which carries a maximum penalty of three years in prison. The book — entitled “Is Egypt Really a Poor Country?” — was posted online by activists. Authorities seized 185 copies of an initial 200-copy...

    Cuban Delegation Disrupts meeting on Cuba's abysmal human rights record More than a dozen representatives from the Cuba Mission called by the US UN Mission to discuss Cuba’s abysmal human rights record tried to disrupt the meeting by constantly shouting and pounding on the table in front of them, rather than try to rebut with reasoned arguments and evidence of their own, which they were invited to do, mimicking U.S. Left tactics during the Kavanaugh hearings.

    Chinese security forces continue to surround the Kirti Tibetan monastery in Sichuan after local residents tried to stop them from arresting the 2,500 monks holed up inside. The standoff began earlier this week, when hundreds of people living in Sichuan's Aba region converged on the monastery determined to stop police from removing the monks for reeducation. The monks could soon face food shortages because they depend on offerings from locals, the Voice of America reports. A U.S. State Department spokesman said the U.S. is concerned about China's actions in Aba, which it called it inconsistent with the internationally recognized principles...

    Video: "Extra Chromosome Drag Night"A drag troupe comprised of performers with Down syndrome is an LGBT activist's latest foray into promoting so-called “inclusion.” Several “Drag Syndrome” events took place at a handful of underground events this summer around East London, promising “drag mayhem” during “extra Chromosome Drag night with our royal Queens and Kings.” The enterprise is a project of the London-based Culture Device, which receives public funding from the Arts Council of England. Like any other drag show, the performances feature song and dance by men wearing women’s dresses, garish makeup, wigs, and in some cases fake breasts. But...

    Hypocrisy appears to be the leading trait we can expect from high-ranking UN officials such as the High Commissioner for Human Rights. Sadly, Ms. Bachelet is no exception The new United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet has unfortunately continued the one-sided anti-Israel narrative that her anti-Semitic predecessor, Prince Zeid Raad Al Hussein, propagated whenever he got a chance. In her first speech to the UN Human Rights Council on September 10, 2018, Ms. Bachelet blamed Israel’s so-called “blockade” and its alleged “excessive use of force” for all the problems suffered by the Palestinians in Hamas-run Gaza. “Prospects...

    White farmers are being murdered and thrown off their land in massive numbers at the behest of their government. There is mass starvation in Venezuela. People have to eat their cats and dogs just to stay alive. In Myannmar, they're murdering Christians. They're also mass murdering Christians in India, as well as Sikhs, Muslims, Dalits, Assamese, Bodos, Manipuris, Dalits, and others. China is rounding up Muslims and forcing them into concentration camps, where they disappear, reminiscent of the Nazi Holocaust against the Jews. They're also burning down churches and persecuting Christians. They previously expelled the Buddhists from Tibet. And throughout...

    President Trump has accused China of intellectual property theft, forced technology transfer, protectionism, and driving a trade deficit. But these disputes obscure an embarrassing reality: America has voluntarily ceded its intellectual arbitrage to China by opening the U.S. up for total download without even attempting to return the favor. Information flows abundantly and freely eastward. Little returns west. Chinese investors, students, government officials, and corporations have mapped every inch of America. The same cannot be said for Americans. But this situation is not actually due to protectionism by the Chinese state. Rather, Americans have voluntarily chosen isolation. The flood of...

    Parents who share pictures of their children on social media are putting their human rights at risk, the United Nations has warned. The UN's special rapporteur Joseph Cannataci said that "strong guidelines" were needed to preserve the rights of children whose parents upload video and images of them. During a mission to the UK to assess the privacy situation he also found that kindergarten-age children were being surveilled using CCTV at school and in their bedrooms. At a press conference on Friday he suggested there could be a rising number of cases involving children who argue their rights have been...

    Mexican presidential candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) called for mass immigration to the United States during a speech Thursday, declaring it a “human right” for all North Americans. “And soon, very soon — after the victory of our movement — we will defend all the migrants in the American continent and all the migrants in the world,” Obrador said, adding that immigrants “must leave their towns and find a life in the United States.” He then declared it as “a human right we will defend,” eluniversal.com reports.

    A report published by Reuters says the U.S. will finally withdraw completely from the misnamed U.N. Human Rights Commission. A diplomatic source told Reuters that the withdrawal was "not a question of if but of when." The Hill: U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley has clashed with the council over its treatment of Israel and has repeatedly voted against U.N. measures that were critical of that country. Most recently, the U.S. and Australia were only two members to vote against a proposal to investigate Israel's alleged use of excessive force in Gaza. Haley has criticized the council over what she called a "chronic...

    Zeid is not the voice of the people of true democracies such as Israel and the United States. He is nothing more than an unaccountable UN bureaucrat whose hypocritical unsolicited opinions on “international law” are of no consequence United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein accused Israel of using “excessive force” in dealing with Hamas-led demonstrations near and along the border fence in Gaza. “Every week, we witness instances of use of lethal force against unarmed demonstrators,” Zeid said last Friday. He claimed, without any first-hand knowledge of actual conditions on the ground, that many of...
