  • US undermining 'last chance' climate talks, experts charge

    Katowice, Poland (CNN)The American delegation came to promote coal. And the kids laughed in their faces. That was the bizarre and symbolic scene that unfolded Monday at the UN COP24 climate talks at a spaceship-shaped conference center in Polish coal country. The nations of the world are meeting here to hash out a "rulebook" to help ensure the viability of humanity -- preventing runaway global warming from causing even greater calamity in the form of superstorms, searing droughts and deadly heat waves. That work, which follows up on the 2015 Paris Agreement, is seen as more critical now than ever....
  • Macron facing a crisis that he created by baiting Trump

    An arrogant politician expressing contempt for Donald Trump and his supporters experienced a surprising and humiliating defeat in late 2016 in our presidential election. A corresponding scenario seems to be playing itself out again in Paris. A year and a half ago, in the wake of President Trump leaving the Paris Climate accord, France’s President Emmanuel Macron asked for a fight on climate change, in an address delivered in English, making it clear that his target was Donald Trump and the American electorate. As Andrew Bolt, writing for the Herald-Sun in Australia noted, he asked for a fight and “He...

"I know he's been through the Senate process before. I'm going to watch the Judiciary process very closely. At the appropriate time I'll meet with the nominee and get my own take on it, and then I'll have a decision to make.

    Slovakia will open a cultural embassy in Jerusalem for now. But that appears to be a prelude to a larger move. “Slovakia is on its way to relocating its embassy to Jerusalem,” Head of the Slovak National Council Andrej Danko told Israel’s President Reuven Rivlin on Wednesday. On Tuesday, the visiting delegation of Slovak lawmakers announced the Eastern European country would open a cultural center in the Israeli capital. The move, when it materializes, would mark a break from European Union policy on Jerusalem. Slovakia would join the Czech Republic and Bulgaria as the other European Union member states to...

    Iran on Saturday launched a ballistic missile that can deliver nukes — and the near-complete silence of the press aside, it’s a big deal. The latest test disclosed, once more, the flaws in the Iranian nuclear deal and the confusion of our European allies, who are alarmed by the mullahs’ behavior but fear losing the deal that enables it. “The Iranian regime has just test-fired a medium range ballistic missile that’s capable of carrying multiple warheads,” Secretary of State Pompeo tweeted Sunday, adding: “This test violates UNSCR 2231” — the United Nations Security Council resolution that made the nuclear deal...

    David Attenborough’s climate change fearmongering makes him look a fool"by Andrew Bolt column in the Daily Telegraph (Australia) 5 Dec 2018 It’s embarrassing to see Sir David Attenborough make such a fool of himself after decades of brilliant filmmaking. Organisers of this week’s United Nations’ global warming conference, in Poland, asked the documentary superstar to make a speech that would wake the dead. And he gave it his best shot, trying to sound like an Old Testament prophet but so overdoing the fearmongering that he seemed deranged. “Right now, we are facing a man-made disaster of global scale,” he thundered....

    President Trump will tweet Friday morning that he is nominating State Department Spokeswoman Heather Nauert to be the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, replacing outgoing official Nikki Haley, multiple sources tell Fox News. Back in October, Nauert, a former Fox News host, was believed to be a "leading contender" for the position, sources familiar with the selection process said at the time. Haley unexpectedly announced her resignation in October and promised to serve in her role through the end of 2018. At the time, she described her time in the position as a "blessing," but offered no reason for...
  • U.S. fails to win enough support at U.N. to condemn Hamas

    Al-Reuters ^ | December 6, 2018 6:47 PM | Michelle Nichols
    A U.S. attempt to get the United Nations to condemn violence by Palestinian militant group Hamas for the first time failed on Thursday because the draft resolution fell short of votes needed in the General Assembly. The resolution required two-thirds support and while Assembly resolutions are non-binding, they can carry political weight. The U.S. text received 87 votes in favor, 58 against, 32 abstentions and 16 countries did not vote. In an earlier procedural move requested by Kuwait, the 193-member body narrowly voted to require two-thirds support and not a simple majority for adoption of the draft resolution. Outgoing U.S....

    U.S. taxpayers pick up nearly a quarter of the United Nations budget each year but the world body is so anti-American despite our global leadership role critics have long wondered why we remain a member. Case in point: On Thursday UN members rejected a U.S. proposal to condemn Iran proxy Hamas for its serial acts of terrorism, mostly against Israel. If a majority of the UN’s members hate anyone more than the U.S., it’s Israel. The resolution was about as straightforward as it gets. It would have condemned Hamas for “repeatedly firing rockets into Israel and for inciting violence, thereby...

    Even as anti-gas tax riots raged in France this week, the naturalist David Attenborough warned a crowd at a United Nations climate change summit in Poland that the “collapse of our civilizations and the extinction of much of the natural world is on the horizon.” UN General Assembly President Maria Espinosa told the media that “mankind” was “in danger of disappearing” if climate change is allowed to progress at its current rate. Speakers, who flew in to swap doomsday stories and partake of the meat-heavy menu, advocated for radical changes to avoid this imminent environmental apocalypse. These days, “the point...

    Arnold Schwarzenegger took a page out of his “Terminator” playbook this week while reflecting on the world’s “biggest evil” — fossil fuels. The actor told attendees at a United Nations climate conference in Poland on Monday that billions of people around the globe would have benefited without the early adoption of coal and other fossil fuels for energy. ~snip~ The actor and former California governor added that President Trump is “meshugge” (Yiddish for “crazy”) for abandoning a 2015 climate change agreement as part of his “America First” campaign vow.

Criticism of migration will become a criminal offence. “Media outlets that give room to criticism of migration can be shut down.

    United Nations "International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People" Beginning in 1977, the United Nations has observed the “International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People” every year on November 29th. This is the date in 1947 when the UN General Assembly approved its partition resolution envisaging the establishment of two states – an independent state of Palestine and an independent Jewish state of Israel. The Palestinians and their surrounding Arab neighbors rejected the original two-state solution with their usual response - violence. The creators of the Jewish state were willing to accept the compromise. Israel subsequently offered the...

    KAMPALA - A U.N. investigation of its widely-praised refugee program in Uganda has found corruption costing millions of dollars and misconduct. The report by the Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS) showed inflated bills, fraud and non-compliance with rules among other malfeasance that caused losses for the U.N. refugee agency. Uganda hosts more than 1 million refugees who have fled South Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo and other countries. Uganda is praised for its open-entry refugee policy that grants aliens free movement within the country, access to public health services and small plots of land for settlement and cultivation. The...

The United States has been leading a push at the United Nations to win backing from European countries for a resolution condemning Hamas. The General Assembly is expected to vote in the coming days on the proposed resolution, which will condemn rocket firings into Israel and demand that Hamas end its use of violence.
