    US Department of State ^ | October 12, 2017 | US State Department
    Press Statement Heather Nauert Department Spokesperson Washington, DC October 12, 2017 On October 12, 2017, the Department of State notified UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova of the U.S. decision to withdraw from the organization and to seek to establish a permanent observer mission to UNESCO. This decision was not taken lightly, and reflects U.S. concerns with mounting arrears at UNESCO, the need for fundamental reform in the organization, and continuing anti-Israel bias at UNESCO. The United States indicated to the Director General its desire to remain engaged with UNESCO as a non-member observer state in order to contribute U.S. views, perspectives...

    China earlier this year ordered the dispatch of 27 intelligence officers to the United States as part of a larger campaign of subversion, according to a leading Chinese dissident. Guo Wengui, a billionaire real estate mogul, disclosed what he said was an internal Communist Party document authorizing the Ministry of State Security to send the spies, described as "people's police officers." Guo, who is being sought by the Chinese government in a bid to silence his disclosures of high-level corruption and intelligence activity, denounced the Beijing regime as corrupt and called for a "revolution" to reform the system. "My only...

    Self-exiled Chinese real-estate mogul Guo Wengui blasted what he called the “kleptocracy” running China, and warned that a wave of Chinese spies are being dispatched to “decimate” the United States – where Guo is currently sheltered. CNBC reports that his remarks come as the Chinese government has doubled down on its allegations against the billionaire, accusing him of crimes including corruption and rape – crimes he firmly denies. “What the U.S. ought to do is take action, instead of just talking to the Chinese kleptocracy,” Guo said through a translator at an event at the National Press Club in Washington,...

    A controversial Chinese billionaire in self-imposed exile blasted on Thursday what he said was a small clique of corrupt "kleptocrats" running China - as he also warned of a wave of Chinese spies being dispatched to the United States in recent months. "What they're doing is against humanity," said Guo Wengui, during an appearance at the National Press Club in Washington, two days after a previously scheduled appearance at a think tank in the same city was postponed due to what he called heavy pressure from the Chinese government. "What the US ought to do is take action, instead of...

    WASHINGTON—A suspected Chinese cyberattack on the website of a prominent Washington think tank drew a complaint from U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions this week in a meeting with top Chinese government officials. The website of the Hudson Institute crashed earlier this week, shortly before the organization was scheduled to host an event with Guo Wengui, a fugitive Chinese businessman and political dissident who has alleged corruption within China’s leadership. The Institute had several days earlier detected a Shanghai-based attack aimed at shutting down access to its website, according to a spokesman. The spokesman said the attack was foiled, and he...

    ISIS are claiming they are behind America’s worst ever mass gun shooting that killed at least 50 people - despite shooter Stephen Paddock having no known links to the terror group. The death cult claimed in a statement published by their official Amaq propaganda agency that the attacker recently converted to Islam and was a "soldier of the Islamic State".

    When you have a student-on-student shouting match, the First Amendment may be stretched to the breaking point. When professors join in the fun, as happened recently at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, it may well tip the balance, for better or for worse. "On August 25, University of Nebraska–Lincoln sophomore Kaitlyn Mullen set up a literature table outside the student union to promote Turning Point USA, a libertarian/conservative campus-based organization," David Moshman writes on the academe blog maintained by the American Association of University Professors (AAUP). "PUSA proclaims its support for free speech but maintains Professor Watchlist, a blacklist...

    "The Man Without A Country", a short story, written by Edward Everett Hale, in 1863, as the Civil War was raging It is about an Army officer that has committed treason during the Revolutionary War, and has shouted out, before sentencing after being convicted, that he wishes, no longer, to hear any mention of the United States of America. He gets his wish as the judge sentences him to life in prison to be served aboard only USA, navy ships that never touch the shores of the USA. He comes to love the USA...but no one will talk to him...

    Make no mistake; this war is racial but only on one side. White America wants to go about our lives and not see race in football; but the BLM/NFL thugs want to make this war racial. Calling this war “racial” is their only hope to grab the high ground; and they are failing. In this latest version of the “Season of The Angry Black Man” we have seen them roll out the biggest guns in the world of sports. But we don’t care. They didn’t learn the lesson of last November; we are teaching it to them. Using false claims...

    A Belgian appeals court on Thursday upheld a lower court ruling tossing out an 11-year old complaint against a number of Kurdish politicians because of their alleged ties to the Kurdish Workers Party, the PKK. The 2006 complaint, filed at the behest of the Turkish government, sought to jail 36 Kurdish politicians, many of them living as political exiles in Belgium, under Belgium’s counter-terrorism laws. A lower court tossed out the case last November, but the Belgian state prosecutor lodged an appeal following vigorous protests from the Turkish government, which leaks bullets whenever someone mentions Kurds. The court found that...

    The Trump administration on Thursday ordered Russia to close its consulate in San Francisco and two diplomatic annexes, in New York and Washington, retaliating against Russia’s order for the United States to reduce its embassy staff in Moscow by 755 people. Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson informed Russia’s foreign minister, Sergey V. Lavrov, of the tit-for-tat move in a phone call on Thursday morning. The administration took pains to say the move was purely reciprocal, and was not designed to further escalate tensions between the United States and Russia.

    America’s white nationalists may bear swastikas, raise Nazi salutes and cheer for the protection of “Blut und Boden” (blood and soil) for all to see. They may say “Heil Trump!” and laud the legacy of American Nazi Party founder George Lincoln Rockwell. But for these American white supremacists, it’s not Nazi Germany to which they look. It’s Russia.

    Friday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh said given the state of affairs in the country, particularly in the wake of last week’s events in Charlottesville, VA, it could be said the country was on the cusp of a second civil war. Limbaugh insisted much of the angst was being driven by forces from the outside wanting to see the United States cease being a “super powerful nation.” Partial transcript as follows (courtesy of RushLimbaugh.com): America is under attack from within. Our culture, our history, our founding are under the most direct assault I have seen...

    We are just inches away from the outbreak of World War III, and yet most Americans seem completely oblivious to what is happening. On Friday, North Korea conducted a missile test which proved that it now has the capability of hitting major U.S. cities in the western half of the country.Every diplomatic effort to end North KoreaÂ’s nuclear program has completely failed, the Chinese have shown that they do not intend to do much of anything to intervene in this crisis, and the United Nations is a dead end. Given enough time, the North Koreans will build hundreds of ICBMs...

    We all like to scoff at that crazy little dictator, Kim Jong Un, who is a walking caricature, putting himself on the cover of a magazine as the sexiest man alive and talking smack like a WWF champ. But, in all seriousness, is North Korea actually a threat?Unfortunately, it looks like the answer to that question is yes…and they’re turning into a bigger one each year.Despite the buffoonery of their Dear Leader, the threat of North Korea is growing rapidly, according to the US Intelligence community. When prepping for a nuclear strike becomes the officially recommended course of action, it...

    Revelations about email transactions between the US State Department and the Russian election watchdog Golos prior to Russia's parliamentary elections threaten to bring the reset to a grinding halt. Before a single vote was cast in the parliamentary elections, a string of incidents indicated that foreign governments were already exerting influence over the election process. Golos, an independent watchdog that has been monitoring elections in Russia for 10 years, was fined 30,000 rubles ($1,000) last week by a Moscow court for publishing “election-related opinion polls and research” after a deadline for publishing such material had passed (it is illegal in...

    The Declaration of Independence deserves its place as one of the most important documents in the history of the world. But, despite its significance, the Declaration did not lead the nation to independence or inspire people to take up arms and begin a revolution. Instead, the Continental Congress acted 443 days after the War of Independence began. Historian Kevin Phillips points out that Colonial authorities "began to exercise power 12 to 18 months before" the Declaration was approved and they had already achieved a "de facto independence." In fact, by the end of 1775, most of the Royal Governors had...
