The letter is unprecedented in its direct criticism of the UN bureaucracy’s promotion of abortion as humanitarian aid.Acting Administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development John Barsa sent UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres a letter in which he corrected Guterres for “cynically placing the provision of ‘sexual and reproductive health services’ on the same level of...

    President Trump on Monday threatened to permanently halt U.S. funding for the World Health Organization (WHO) if the body does not commit to "major substantive improvements" in the next 30 days. The president, in a letter to WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, levied a series of allegations that the global health entity overlooked or ignored various warning signs about the coronavirus and criticized its stance toward China. "We do not have time to waste," he wrote. "That is why it is my duty, as President of the United States, to inform you that, if the World Health Organization does not...

    The US government’s foreign aid agency on Monday warned the United Nations to stop “promoting abortion” in its response to the coronavirus pandemic — invoking billions of dollars in US donations. US Agency for International Development acting administrator John Barsa noted his agency gave the UN $3.5 billion in 2019 and demanded that UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres revise wording in its COVID-19 Global Humanitarian Response Plan. Barsa’s letter comes after President Trump last month ended roughly $400 million in annual aid to the UN’s World Health Organization.

    UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - Hundreds of thousands of children could die this year due to the global economic downturn sparked by the coronavirus pandemic and tens of millions more could fall into extreme poverty as a result of the crisis, the United Nations warned on Thursday. The world body also said in a risk report that nearly 369 million children across 143 countries who normally rely on school meals for a reliable source of daily nutrition have now been forced to look elsewhere. “We must act now on each of these threats to our children,” U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said....

    Hungary supports Beijing’s efforts to prevent Taiwan taking part in the upcoming World Health Assembly (WHA), according to a Chinese statement issued after a telephone conversation between the two countries’ foreign ministers. China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi called his European counterpart, Peter Szijjarto, on Thursday, the foreign ministry in Beijing said. During the call, Szijjarto told Wang that Budapest would not support Taiwan’s accession to the World Health Organisation (WHO) ahead of the annual gathering of health ministers from around the world that starts in Geneva on Monday and which Taipei is keen to attend. Hungary “always upholds the one...

    Rep. Lee Zeldin hearkened back to 2016 to remind the nation that the Obama administration was “furious” with retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn for calling on world leaders to block an “anti-Israel” effort. The New York Republican tweeted Thursday morning about Flynn, who served as Trump’s national security adviser in early 2017, and his efforts to block the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334, which focused on Israeli settlements in “Palestinian territories occupied since 1967.” “Keep in mind Obama admin was furious Gen Michael Flynn was making calls to world leaders helping to block UN Sec Council Res 2334 in...

  • Report: U.N. Call for Global Coronavirus Ceasefire a ‘Catastrophic Failure’

    A call by the United Nations for a global ceasefire to help restore world peace and understanding during the Chinese coronavirus pandemic was branded “a catastrophic failure” Tuesday by Oxfam International. The international charitable organization published a report saying the U.N. has been totally ignored in its efforts to be a peacebroker. It outlined that fighting continues unabated across war-torn countries, undermining global efforts to combat the viral epidemic which has infected more than 4.1 million people and caused more than 280,000 deaths worldwide. The report follows nearly two months after U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’ initial appeal for an end...

    The flags are raised manually by UN Security officers every weekday morning at approximately 8 am and lowered every weekday at around 4 pm, except in the cases of bad weather. The flags are organized in English alphabetical order from north to south. On weekends, only the UN flag is raised. Further information can be found in this 1992 article from the UN Chronicle. On Wednesday morning one Twitter user Valerie Gilbert wrote: An anon had posted that UN flags were down. I just confirmed it in person. What does it mean?

    The next global pandemic may very well be a hunger pandemic as a result of the fallout from coronavirus. While the World Health Organization warns that stringent guidelines need to stay in place to combat the spread of COVID-19, fellow United Nations agency World Food Program (WFP) believes that it will lead to an uptick in global poverty and starvation, and the response to the virus itself may end up killing more people by the end of 2020. Last week, WFP cautioned the UN Security Council that the risk of large-scale famine in much of the developing world was now...

    “On this International Mother Earth Day,” United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres proclaimed, “all eyes are on the COVID-19 pandemic – the biggest test the world has faced since the Second World War.” He issued this proclamation under the banner “Climate Action” in an attempt to link the devastating health and economic crisis wrought by the coronavirus pandemic to the UN’s radical climate change agenda. “We must act decisively to protect our planet from both the coronavirus and the existential threat of climate disruption. The current crisis is an unprecedented wake-up call.” The UN Secretary General is following Rahm Emanuel's...
  • Has the busybodies' 'Agenda 21' worked its magic?

    I know. "Agenda 21" sounds like one of those conspiratorial rabbit holes like, say, Area 51 or the Bermuda Triangle. It is not. It is as real as is the havoc it has helped wreak. As to whether that havoc was intended, I think not, but I could be wrong. After the last month or two, I would not be surprised to learn that Lucifer himself conceived Agenda 21. At its core Agenda 21 asked all countries to "integrate land-use and transportation planning to encourage development patterns that reduce transport demand." This meant specifically adopting "urban-transport programmes favouring high-occupancy public...

    The head of the U.N. food agency warned Tuesday that, as the world is dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, it is also “on the brink of a hunger pandemic” that could lead to “multiple famines of biblical proportions” within a few months if immediate action isn’t taken. World Food Program Executive Director David Beasley told the U.N. Security Council that even before COVID-19 became an issue, he was telling world leaders that “2020 would be facing the worst humanitarian crisis since World War II.” That’s because of wars in Syria, Yemen and elsewhere, locust swarms in Africa, frequent natural disasters...

    France's 42-year-old president, Emmanuel Macron, who has faced many challenges governing his country, is now positioning himself to take over the mantle of global leadership long reserved to the older leaders of China, Russia or especially the United States. And right now, he has no real challengers. The vehicle of this leadership campaign is Macron's proposal for a worldwide ceasefire -- a truce everywhere from Afghanistan to Syria, Iraq and Yemen. And he says he's a good part of the way there. There are five permanent members of the UN Security Council (France, China, Russia, Britain and the US) and...

    White House economic adviser Peter Navarro told "The Story" Wednesday night that China has its sights set on controlling various United Nations agencies like the World Health Organization, and is using the WHO's current director-general as a surrogate. "The U.N. itself has 15 specialized agencies, including the WHO," Navarro told host Martha MacCallum. " ... What China has been doing very aggressively over the last decade is to try to gain control of those by electing people to the top. It already controls five of the 15, also, by using proxies, colonial-like proxies, like Tedros [Adhanom Ghebreyesus] at the WHO."...
