    Today the President handed out the Presidential Medal of Freedom to not one, but two Antisemites. There was has been a lot of written about one of of the recipients, former Irish President Mary Robinson, who was responsible for the 1991 UN Conference on Racism, which turned out to be a conference for every type of Antisemitism in the world. But the former UN hate monger wasn't the only Antisemite receiving a Presidential award today, the other one honored by the President was Bishop Desmond Tutu For example Tutu has made some very disturbing statements about the Holocaust. He has...

    Bicycles instead of cars? Dense apartment clusters instead of single homes? Community rituals instead of churches? "Human rights" instead of religious freedom? The UN Conference on Human Settlements (Habitat II) which met June 3-14 [1996]in Istanbul, painted an alarming picture of the 21st century community. The American ways-free speech, individualism, travel, and Christianity-are out. A new set of economic, environmental, and social guidelines are in. Citizenship, democracy, and education have been redefined. Handpicked civil leaders will implement UN "laws", bypassing state and national representatives to work directly with the UN. And politically correct "tolerance"-meaning "the rejection of dogmatism and absolutism"...

    Around the world Desmond Tutu is thought of as a powerful peace maker and one of the people who helped bring down South African apartheid. All that is true, but there is one fatal flaw in the Tutu's Character, he hates Jews, and I don't mean he is anti-Israel (which he is) but he hates Jews. Here are some examples: People are scared in this country [the US], to say wrong is wrong because the Jewish lobby is powerful - very powerful. Well, so what? For goodness sake, this is God’s world! We live in a moral universe. The apartheid...

The two are members of the Elders, a group of senior figures who have been informally engaging...

    Globalization “Elders” want female ordination as ministers, priests and rabbis Campaign by the 12 “apostles” of the New World Order criticizes churches for female exclusion from male leadership By Julio SeveroBillionaire Richard Branson and Nelson Mandela, a known pro-abortion and pro-homosexuality Marxist, have launched an international campaign against churches that refuse to ordain women. For their campaign, they convened the “Elders”, a group formed by twelve former world leaders who work together to promote peace and the “shared interests of humanity,” and to fight human suffering. The “Elders” include ex-UN Secretary General Kofi Annan; former Brazilian President Fernando Henrique Cardoso;...
  • Watch Out for "The Elders"--A junta of self-appointed wisemen prepare new ultimatums for Israel.

    "The Elders" are coming to the Middle East, ostensibly bringing wise diplomatic counsel, but actually are likely to deliver yet another ultimatum to Israel. A brainchild of British billionaire and gadfly Richard Branson, "The Elders" are ostensibly a wise junta of "eminent global leaders" bringing "their collective influence and experience to support peace building, help address major causes of human suffering and promote the shared interests of humanity." Naturally, Jimmy Carter is an Elder. So too is retired South African Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu, former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, former Irish President Mary Robinson, former Brazilian President Fernando Cardoso,...

    As president, I worked actively with African leaders and the British to change the apartheid regime of Rhodesia into a democratic Zimbabwe in 1980. Eight years later, The Carter Center established one of our first agriculture projects in Zimbabwe, at that time known as a breadbasket for the region and setting an example in economic stability, education and health care. Now, after almost three decades of governmental corruption, mismanagement and oppression, Zimbabwe has become a basket case and an international embarrassment. A group of leaders known as the Elders, to which I belong, have monitored this crisis, while realizing that...

    KABKABIYA, Sudan (AP) -- Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter got in a shouting match Wednesday with Sudanese security officials who blocked him from a town in Darfur where he was trying to meet representatives of ethnic African refugees from the ongoing conflict. The 83-year-old Carter walked into this highly volatile pro-Sudanese government town to meet refugees too frightened to attend a scheduled meeting at a nearby compound. Carter was able to make it to a school where he met with one tribal representative and was preparing to go further into the town when Sudanese security services interrupted. "You can't go....

    For decades, global elitists have claimed special knowledge that they alone could solve the world’s problems if only we (the ignorant masses) would leave them alone to get on with it. It would create jobs and economic prosperity, they said. They promised peace and security. Truly, what’s not to like about their New World Order? Imagine how shocked they were when Financial Times published the results of an FT/Harris poll (July 22, 2007) which showed almost universal disdain for the very policies that were supposed to save us. According to the FT article, The depth of anti-globalization feeling in the...

    SIR Richard Branson tried to prevent the Iraq war in a secret deal with Nelson Mandela. The Virgin boss hoped to send the former leader of South Africa to meet Saddam Hussein and persuade him to go into exile. He even got United Nations chief Kofi Annan's approval for the plan, despite fears that Saddam might kidnap Mandela. A private jet was ready to fly the Nobel Peace Prize winner to Iraq. Branson offered to join him on the peace mission. But coalition forces invaded Iraq just before they went. Branson opposed invasion plans and believed if they could offer...
