  • Fortune Names Taylor Swift—Not Obama—One of World’s Greatest Leaders

    Fox News Insider ^ | Mar 27, 2015 1:12 pm
    Should President Barack Obama just “shake it off?” Taylor Swift ranked sixth on Fortune Magazine’s second annual list of the world’s 50 greatest leaders—people who are “transforming business, government, philanthropy, and so much more.” But the president was omitted entirely from the list. Fortune Editor Alan Murray explained why: “I voted for Barack Obama in 2008 largely because of his call to unite blue states and red states behind a politics of hope. But it hasn’t happened. At home our politics are as divided—and our federal government is as dysfunctional—as they were when he took office.” …

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is scheduled to speak to Congress at 11:00 a.m., but it appears that President Obama will not be watching most of the speech. The White House Press Office released an update to his daily schedule this morning, announcing a video conference call with world leaders for 11:30 a.m. in the situation room, likely as Netanyahu is finishing his speech. According to the White House, the conference will include British Prime Minister David Cameron, French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, and European Commission President Donald Tusk. The last minute...

    World leaders and especially Western ones care--really care--about the horror of Islamist terrorism, even while still telling the great unwashed that only Islamaphobes identify Islamist terrorism as Islamist terrorism ‘World leaders’ who responded like sharks to chum at the “Je suis Charlie” mass rally in Paris on Sunday soon returned to their offices to carry on with what they always do: forging the same lax immigration policies that allow the barbarians to get in through the gates and patently ignoring the inevitability of the next Islamic terrorist attack. But before leaving Paris they had firmly planted in the minds of...

    The Queen warned last night that focusing too much attention on the Ebola outbreak could lead to an upsurge in other deadly diseases such as malaria. At an event alongside world leaders in the science of infectious diseases yesterday, she asked ‘piercing’ questions about how the disease ought to be controlled. And the monarch said she worried that Ebola, which has claimed 5,000 lives already, risked overshadowing the risk from other deadlier diseases like malaria, which kills the same number every week.

    President Obama insulted many Americans last week when he raised events in Ferguson, Missouri, during his United Nations speech. They chafed at the implied moral equivalence of a shooting still in legal dispute with the many lethal foreign threats besieging the world. While such rhetoric is divisive at home, there is another problem. The president does not seem to understand that most of the world is completely unmoved by such apologies. Most of the world does not see an earnest moralist struggling with America’s complicated past or a humble man admitting his own foibles. Instead, they see a weak leader...

Obama has been on the top of the list for every year with the exception of 2010, when Hu Jintao, the former political and military leader of China, was No. 1.

    The National Security Agency monitored the phone conversations of 35 world leaders after being given the numbers by an official in another US government department, according to a classified document provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden. The confidential memo reveals that the NSA encourages senior officials in its "customer" departments, such the White House, State and the Pentagon, to share their "Rolodexes" so the agency can add the phone numbers of leading foreign politicians to their surveillance systems. The document notes that one unnamed US official handed over 200 numbers, including those of the 35 world leaders, none of whom is...

    The reason why President Obama is not meeting with any foreign leaders during this week's United Nations General Assembly in New York is, as one aide to the president explained, because "If he met with one leader, he would have to meet with 10." The reasoning was explained that way to the New York Times. "Mr. Obama was scheduled to attend a reception for world leaders at the United Nations on Monday night. But a campaign adviser acknowledged privately that in this election year, campaigning trumped meetings with world leaders. 'Look, if he met with one leader, he would have...

    World leaders from Washington to Islamabad are increasingly engaged in a frantic attempt to contain the political damage of the WikiLeaks disclosures. The fact that many of the leaked cables expose U.S. foreign policy in a seemingly negative and contradictory light -- officials saying one thing in public and doing something entirely different in private -- has embarrassed an administration that has made multilateralism a key component of its grand strategy. But what is less clear, particularly in media coverage of the leaks, is what the new WikiLeaks documents say about the policies and behavior of foreign governments. Indeed, just...

    World leaders at a U.N. summit on food security in Rome are vowing to take "urgent action" to eliminate global hunger. But they did not agree in their final declaration to a U.N. request for $44 billion a year in farm aid. The World Food Program says for the first time ever, more than one billion people in the world are going hungry. That's more than one out of every six people on Earth. World hunger and food security are the focus of a three-day U.N. summit that opened Monday in Rome.

    WASHINGTON (CNN)– As Barack Obama takes off for his first overseas trip as president, a new national poll indicates that more than eight in ten Americans think he will do a good job representing the U.S. to the world. And seven in ten people questioned in the CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey, released Tuesday, believe that leaders of other countries respect Obama. That last figure is in sharp contrast with George W. Bush. At the start of his presidency in 2001, only 49 percent believed that foreign leaders respected Bush.

    UNITED NATIONS - History's largest gathering of world leaders fell far short Friday of completing the major changes U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan sought to fight poverty, terrorism and human rights abuses — but the leaders took a first step. Their approval of a modest document, which commits governments to achieving U.N. goals to combat poverty and creates a commission to help move countries from war to peace, came alongside important developments in other areas. Meetings on the sidelines of the summit marking the United Nations' 60th anniversary produced rare Arab-Israeli contacts, further talks on Iran's nuclear ambitions and a new...

"During that time, a lot of world leaders would ask, 'What is going on? Is this serious?'" he told New York magazine. "I kept assuring them that nothing bad had happened to America," he recalled, "but that we periodically went through spasms." Interviewed while traveling in Africa, the ex-president claimed, "Africans saw [my impeachment] for exactly what it was: an abuse of power." "They got it here," he insisted.

On Monday, U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan joined them and many others around the world in mourning the former president, praising his leadership during the Cold War. But some commentators also said that as good as his optimism and charm were for the self-image of the United States, Reagan hatched conservative economic and foreign policies in the Republican Party that some Europeans still regret.

The Bush administration does not have many friends around the world. I think I can count them on the fingers of one hand.
