    The Independent, Volume 86 | June 5th, 1916
    EVER since the calling of the First Hague Conference, The Independent and its editor have been urging a League to Enforce Peace as the next great step in the political evolution of the world. Tho the idea of world federation has been the dream of the poets, prophets and philosophers down the ages it is only in recent times that it has been put forward here and there as a practical possibility. In 1905 at the Thirteenth Interparliamentary Conference at Brussels Richard Bartholdt, member of Congress from Missouri and president of the American delegation, presented a plan for consideration that...

    The Conference That Legalized the Jewish StatePosted By Joseph Puder On May 11, 2015 @ 12:20 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | No Comments [1]Like so many other aspects of our contemporary culture, historical facts are overlooked in favor of “feelings” and perceived “rights.” In today’s American high schools and universities, teachers are focused on aggrieved minorities, and “victims” of all kinds, rather than on historical truth. For example, many in the media and academia repeatedly herald the victimization of the Palestinian-Arabs. Some professors and media outlets have even inferred that the State of Israel was founded on “stolen” Palestinian land....

    Laws Schmaws, Who Cares Anymore? By Norma Zager “Our government... teaches the whole people by its example. If the government becomes the lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy.” Louis Brandeis No one follows the laws anymore. Stop sign, no problem, roll on through. Red light means speed up to too many people. Speeding, easy peasy if you don’t get caught. Stealing is highly profitable and a corporate mentality these days. Murder, mayhem and vice are all in a day’s work for some. I am certain I am...
  • House GOP targets the U.N.

    House Republicans are planning to introduce legislation Tuesday that will force major changes at the United Nations, an organization that the bills author has called a stew of corruption, mismanagement and negligence. The bill, by Republican House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairwoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, would require the UN adopt a voluntary budget model, in which countries selectively choose which UN agencies to fund. The bill is expected to be introduced on Tuesday, and will also end funding for Palestinian refugees and limit the use of U.S. funds only to projects directly outlined by Congress. An aide familiar with the legislation told...

    Practically everywhere you look in the operations of the United Nations, you find incredible graft, corruption and disgusting criminal behavior. The time has come to withdraw all support from this organization and let it fall apart starved of funds. We can find some other use for the buildings and grounds while leaders from the important countries of the world meet to plan a successor organization. Let the United Nations follow the League of Nations into the dustbin of history, as we try again to find a way to resolve the worlds problems peacefully.

    "Cost of U.N. Renovation Soars to $1.9 Billion By MEGHAN CLYNE - Staff Reporter of the Sun, November 17, 2005 A 60-day, top-to-bottom review of the United Nations's renovation plans - meant to bring down the $1.2 billion cost of the project, described by many real estate experts as over-inflated - has instead sent the project's estimated price tag soaring to $1.9 billion." In light of this hefty price tag, it is past time to ask if the U.N. is salvageable. The United Nations has proven to be a dysfunctional world body, but is this the fault of a corrupt...

    To: President Bush Dear President Bush, We, the citizens of the United States of America, demand that the US Government fully recognize the legality of the Israeli communities situated in the West Bank and Gaza. The following declarations in support of the Jewish communities situated in the West Bank and must be made prior to the upcoming November elections. Settlements are Not Illegal! 1. The settlements are not located in "occupied territory." The last binding international legal instrument which divided the territory in the region of Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza was the League of Nations Mandate, which explicitly...
  • Multinational vs. Going it Alone: History Shows the Democrat Claim is False

    Special to FreeRepublic ^ | 17 April, 2004 | John Armor (Congressman Billybob)
    The main mantra of the Democrats heading into the 2004 Presidential Election is that the United States is going it alone in Iraq. The claim is that we would be better off if our effort were multinational, which means giving a veto power to national friends like the French. But a brief look at the history of World War II demonstrates that this claim is false. This is one more instance when I want to jump through the TV screen, grab the reporters by the throat and demand of them, Dont you know where to find a library? Cant you...
  • Greater UN Role In Iraq Urged (Kofi Annan Says Not So Fast)

    The Washington Post ^ | 11/22/2003 | Colum Lynch
    <p>UNITED NATIONS -- France, Germany, and Russia yesterday demanded a broader role for the United Nations and other foreign powers in overseeing Iraq's political transition in exchange for the Security Council's blessing of US plans to transfer power to Iraqis. The move signaled a fresh battle for the Bush administration in the 15-nation council over Iraq. The United States plans to introduce a resolution that would endorse a US-Iraqi pact that would culminate in a constitution and elections by Dec. 31, 2005. That agreement, which would lead to the establishment of a provisional Iraqi government by June 30, has been welcomed by UN Secretary General Kofi Annan and other members of the council.</p>

    No matter what one thinks of the looming war with Iraq, most of us have to admit something good is developing out of the overall argument. The United Nations is demonstrating, conclusively, the same irrelevance the League of Nations did many years ago. The United States foots a quarter of the bill for that U.N paper tiger, international debating society and what do the American people get in return? We get a derogation of our liberty through bogus agreements, the right to host hundreds of ill-behaved diplomats from third- world countries and a system that allows hundreds of communist and...

    Annan Says U.S. Will Violate Charter if It Acts Without ApprovalUNITED NATIONS, March 10 Secretary General Kofi Annan warned today that if the United States fails to win approval from the Security Council for an attack on Iraq, Washington's decision to act alone or outside the Council would violate the United Nations charter. *** Mr. Annan's remarks drew a sharp response from Washington, where the Bush administration, like its allies overseas, was engaged in a strong lobbying effort to win the necessary nine votes to pass a resolution this week authorizing war. The White House spokesman Ari Fleischer in...

    I suppose the day that changed my life was the day I had a letter from the foundation of one Edward S Harkness, an American tycoon who had given his fortune over to good works, mostly medical research. Shortly after the First World War he noticed that a whole generation of young Americans were going off to study at European universities. Now Mr Harkness knew, as perhaps few of his kind did, that America too had universities that were leaders in particular fields. He therefore invented a reverse fellowship - 25 fellowships - to be awarded to graduate students of...
