  • US vetoes UN resolution denouncing violence against Palestinians

    06/02/2018 3:26:33 PM PDT · by BBell · 29 replies
    The United States vetoed on Friday a Kuwaiti-drafted UN Security Council resolution that condemned Israel's use of force against Palestinian civilians, underlining Washington's differences with friends and foes alike over the Israeli-Palestinian issue. Later, a second, US-drafted resolution that blamed Hamas for the violence and upheld Israel's right to defend itself failed to attract any other country's support when it was put to vote in the 15-member council. Blasting the council majority, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said the two votes showed it was willing to blame Israel and unwilling to blame Hamas, the Islamist group that...
  • State Dems don’t want Independents to vote in party primary (NY)

    New York Democratic leaders say they want more people to vote — except they won’t allow anyone but registered Democrats to vote in party primaries. The New York State Democratic Party plans on blocking a proposed resolution at its May 23-24 convention that would allow independent or “unaffiliated” voters to vote in this year’s Democratic primary for governor. New York’s restrictive voting laws became a national embarrassment in 2016 as many younger voters realized they couldn’t vote for Bernie Sanders in the presidential primary against Hillary Clinton because they missed the deadline to enroll as Democrats.

    President Donald Trump threatened Wednesday to cut off U.S. funding to countries that support a resolution criticizing his decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. “We’ll save a lot. We don’t care,” he said, alluding to U.S. aid. The president strongly supported U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley who said Tuesday that the United States “will be taking names” of countries that vote in favor of a General Assembly resolution Thursday declaring that Jerusalem’s status can be changed only by direct Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. “For all these nations, they take our money and then vote against us. They take hundreds of millions of...
  • Why would Flynn lie about something seemingly innocent?

    Flynn is reported to have lied about his contact with Russia which seems to be ordinary communications for a transition team. So why lie in the first place? The dots are not connecting. Is this the tip of an iceberg that we are not being shown. What else did Flynn do wrong? Is it stuff that is important to keep secret for national security? Is it stuff that is somehow related to Flynn not following directions given by administration? Is it stuff that goes deeper against Trump that we will not be privy to? Something is missing.

    Shortly after the presidential election, the Minneapolis City Council introduced and passed a resolution declaring "solidarity" with their Muslim community. Using the #resist narrative following the election of President Trump, it seems to also have been an attempt to deflect from the mass stabbing at the mall in St. Cloud which garnered national attention and again highlighted the violent tendencies of some Muslims in the population.

    Oklahoma House of Representatives passed a resolution on May 8 declaring abortion to be murder and directing “every public official” in the state to use their authority “to stop the murder of innocent children by abortion.” The resolution does not have the force of law but it does reflect the policy view of the Oklahoma House, which has 101 members — 74 Republicans, 26 Democrats, and 1 vacancy. The resolution, HR 1004, passed by voice vote, and was introduced by Rep. Chuck Strohm, R-Jenks. The resolution, in part, states that “all human life is protected by God’s law and the...

    Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu during Wednesday’s Knesset meeting spoke about UNESCO’s latest anti-Israel resolution and thanked the countries which opposed it. “Yesterday, UNESCO again passed a delusional resolution regarding Israel’s status in Jerusalem, the capital of the Jewish People for 3,000 years,” Netanyahu said. “I very much appreciate the across-the-board unity of almost all political parties in rejecting this absurd decision. I would also like to say that this systematic harassment has a price. In wake of the resolution, I have instructed Foreign Ministry Director General Yuval Rotem to deduct $1 million from the funds that Israel transfers to...

    In a matter of days, time will run out on a plan that could cut down on commuting times, pave the way for even less traffic congestion, and potentially give taxpayers a break. For reasons that remain unclear, the General Assembly has ignored the Illinois Department of Transportation's I-55 managed lanes project, and the cost of doing nothing has the potential to harm the state's ability to do business for years to come. The I-55 managed lanes proposal would add an express toll lane between the Veterans Memorial Tollway in the southwest suburbs and the Dan Ryan Expressway in Chicago....

    The US House of Representatives passed a scathing rebuke Thursday night to a United Nations Security Council resolution the Obama administration allowed through last month that condemned Israeli settlements as illegal. House Resolution 11 declared the UN motion a “one-sided” effort that is an obstacle to peace, placing disproportionate blame on Israel for the continuation of the conflict and encouraging Palestinians from engaging in direct, bilateral negotiations. […] Introduced by California Rep. Ed Royce (R) and New York Rep. Elliot Engel (D), the top two members of the House Foreign Affairs committee, the resolution was co-sponsored 105 other House members,...

    Israel fired back at Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blasting Kerry’s lengthy televised rebuke of the Middle Eastern democracy and the United States’ abstention from an anti-Israel United Nations vote last week. Netanyahu, speaking in Jerusalem just over an hour after Kerry’s speech had ended, said the speech was “as unbalanced as the anti-Israel resolution passed last week.” “Secretary Kerry paid lip service to the unrelenting campaign of terror that has been waged by the Palestinians against the Jewish State,” Netanyahu said. He later added: “Israelis do not need to be lectured about...

    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich accused the Obama administration on Monday of "waging war on Israel." On Monday, Gingrich tweeted: "Why is the Obama team waging war against Israel?why are they taking steps to isolate and then kill a democracy and an ally?" The former speaker blasted President Barack Obama for not having the U.S. veto a United Nation’s Security Council resolution which condemned Israeli settlements in the West Bank and east Jerusalem. Gingrich tweets: "President-elect Trump must prepare a comprehensive offensive for Jan 29 to undo the damage to Israel the Obama team is inflicting." "Congress should pass resolutions...

    Palestinian terrorist factions, including the Islamist groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad, welcomed the UN Security Council resolution condemning Israel’s settlement policy and branding Jewish homes in the West Bank and eastern Jerusalem as illegal and dangerous to the so-called two-state solution. The Palestinian jihadist organizations said the motion represented an important sea change in the international position on the conflict and a crucial victory for the Palestinian people. Hamas, which does not support the two-state solution, lauded the countries that voted for the motion, saying they backed the Palestinian people’s rights. The organization’s spokesperson Fawzi Barhoum stated that “Hamas commends...

    Obama Considering Measure To Ban Criticism Of Islam Obama is considering a UN resolution that criminalizes speech Muslims consider blasphemous. Filed by Jessa Crane January 24th, 2015 If the Obama Administration has its way, the 1st Amendment will be subject to review by the United Nations. The UN is pushing member nations to adopt something they call UN resolution 16/18. This is a resolution- proposed by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, which is made up of 56 Islamic states- which would criminalize "hate speech" targeting Muslims. This wholly un-Constitutional proposal was first floated in the aftermath of 9/11 amid fears...

    When Egypt submitted its proposal to the UN Security Council Wednesday evening condemning Israel for building in Judea and Samaria, eyebrows were not raised in Jerusalem. The Israeli delegation to the UN has long prepared for such a proposal and estimates that it has a good chance of passing, due to the fact that a majority of the Security Council is hostile towards Israel. However, the final approval of the proposal, which will be tabled for vote at 10 PM Israel time on Thursday, is dependent on whether the US uses its veto power. It is, as yet, unclear how...

    The United Nations on Friday approved an Israeli-sponsored resolution focusing on international innovation and development. The resolution, entitled "Entrepreneurship for Sustainable Development," passed with 123 countries supporting it, 30 countries opposing, and eight abstaining, according to a statement from Israel’s UN mission. After months of diplomatic efforts, Israel's Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon succeeded in passing the resolution by working country by country to convince it of the importance of the law, notwithstanding the fierce opposition from the Arab bloc to all Israeli resolutions. The Arab member-states opposed the resolution, despite the fact that many elements of the decision...
