    Former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker leads just one of nine separate investigations into a United Nations humanitarian program that may have enriched Saddam Hussein and UN officials. But Mr. Volcker's inquiry is arguably the most significant, as he heads the UN's internal probe into what some critics describe as "the biggest financial scandal in history." An estimated $10 billion was siphoned from the $65 billion Oil for Food program. Volcker recently finished assembling his investigative team and vowed to produce a "truly definitive report" in six to eight months. "The chips will fall where they may," he wrote in...

    Unions Press for Sanctions Against China By MARTIN CRUTSINGER, AP Economics Writer WASHINGTON - Organized labor asked the Bush administration on Tuesday to impose economic sanctions on China because of the country's alleged violations of worker rights. The request — in a petition filed with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Zoellick — represented the latest effort by American unions to highlight what they see as unfair trade practices that have led to a record $124 billion U.S. trade deficit with China last year and the loss of thousands of U.S. factory jobs. The petition, filed by the AFL-CIO on behalf of...
  • Business leaders don't like 'outsourcing' either

    Business leaders don't like 'outsourcing' either By Keith Koffler, CongressDaily Business officials leading a new coalition to combat efforts to prevent companies from moving some operations overseas know they have a public relations problem, and they are preparing to act. "Outsourcing" has become a national dirty word. And, just as they partially succeeded in converting "fast track" to "trade promotion authority," corporate leaders are about to try to strike outsourcing from the lexicon. The coalition is now rallying around "worldwide sourcing" as a less provocative term for the movement of jobs around the globe. The change is part of a...

    Saving the U.N. From Utah by Barbara Crossette   UNITED NATIONS—Just a couple of weeks ago, the U.S. state of Utah came close to asking the U.S. Congress to consider pulling the country out of the United Nations. A bill accusing the United Nations of endangering American sovereignty and bleeding the national treasury cleared the state House of Representatives easily, then stalled—but did not die—in a state Senate committee, where it could be revived and sent to the floor at any time. What is it with Utah? In the summer of 2001, La Verkin, Utah, decided to declare itself a...

    Robert Bartley, a closet one-worlder at the WSJ, used his newspaper’s "conservative" clout to seduce American business leaders into sacrificing U.S. sovereignty for trade. ‘‘What in blazes can President Bush be thinking?" That has been the general response — on talk radio and in media surveys, Internet postings and letters-to-the-editor — of many current and former Bush supporters angered and confused by the president’s immigration proposals. These folks would not have been surprised by the president’s outrageous announcement on January 7 or his remarks the following week at the Summit of the Americas in Mexico if they had been paying...

    In an interview, former US President Bill Clinton offers ideas for the Middle East and other issues Nayan Chanda: You once likened globalization to weather. Why are a lot of people now angry about globalization? Bill Clinton: Lot of bad weather. First of all, the system is not working for about half the people on earth. There are lots of reasons for that. While the last twenty years have lifted lots of people out of poverty than ever before, there are more people because all the population growth in the world is in poor countries. The second problem is that...

    Christian Churches Should Stop Using the Cross, Group Says By Jeff Johnson August 22, 2003 Capitol Hill ( - An interfaith group founded by Unification Church leader Sun Myung Moon is spearheading an effort to have Christian ministers remove crosses from their churches, calling them a symbol of oppression and perceived superiority. Mainstream Christian leaders call the request "outrageously bigoted." The American Clergy Leadership Conference (ACLC), an organization that began as a project of Moon's Family Federation for World Peace and Unification (FFWPU), believes the key to "true and lasting peace in the Middle East" is reconciliation between members of...

" Progressive politics in the 1860s did not require Abraham Lincoln to grub around for corporate sponsorship. It is unlikely that either Lincoln or the mayor of Gettysburg was savvy enough to think of decorating a cemetery in Pennsylvania with corporate...

    Baha’ism: A One World Religion By Darren Morrison & Vicki Morrison Let’s explore one of Satan’s tools toward a global government. The Baha’i Faith started in Iran about 150 years ago. It originated out of the Islamic Shi’ite sect, but Baha’ism is considered an independent religion. Just as Buddhism originated out of Hinduism, Just as Christianity is distinct from its parent religion Judaism also the Baha’i faith is distinct from Islam. That is important to know when understanding this cult. The primary basic belief of the Baha’i faith is that all religions came from GOD. They believe that in all...

    AUCKLAND, New Zealand (AP)— Oracle of San Francisco has won a place in the America's Cup challenger final, coming from behind Monday to beat Seattle's OneWorld Challenge by 1 minute, 4 seconds and clinch their semifinal repechage. The syndicate of software billionaire Larry Ellison will join Alinghi of Switzerland in the final starting Jan. 11 while OneWorld, the US$80 million campaign of mobile phone billionaire Craig McCaw, is eliminated from the regatta. Defeat was made more bitter for OneWorld on Monday because it led across the startline and for more than half of the 18.5-nautical-mile race. It appeared to...

    SEATTLE (AP) -- Keith McCaw, a billionaire whose family helped create a cellular-phone empire, was found dead in a hottub in his lakeside Seattle mansion. He was 49.

Police and firefighters received a 911 call of a possible drowning in the block where McCaw's mansion sits near Lake Washington. Paramedics tried to revive him, but he was pronounced dead at the scene. The cause of death was not immediately known. ``There is no indication of foul play at...

But some Christians say this scenario may be closer than most people think. Just this month in Geneva, hundreds of spiritual and religious leaders met at the United Nations for a peace summit. And although all the major faiths were...
