Netanyahu Picked Up the Mantle Obama Tossed Aside.
The United States has for decades been known as the leader of the free world. Not anymore. Obama with his speech brought rousing applause from those present at the United Nations to hear it. I’m unsure whether the applause was for promises of appeasement or his New World Order. Responsibility and leadership in the 21st century demand more. In an era when our destiny is | Read More »
Germans will walk out if Ahmadinejad speech involves Holocaust denial. Huzzah.
(Via Hot Air Headlines) I have a problem with this. Germany will walk out of the U.N. General Assembly if Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad denies the Holocaust in a speech he will give Wednesday, and it wants other European Union countries to do the same, the foreign ministry said. My problem with this is that intolerance to Holocaust denial and anti-Semitism should be so instinctive | Read More »
Helmsley Hotels to Ahmadinejad: Scram.
(Via Drudge) They run a respectable establishment, you understand. The New York Helmsley Hotel last night abruptly canceled a long-planned banquet for next week after finding out that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was scheduled to attend and speak, The Post has learned. Helmsley representatives told Ahmadinejad to beat it after being informed by the security group United Against Nuclear Iran that the Israel-hating, Holocaust-denying America | Read More »
John Bolton grades the Obama Administration’s foreign policy record
As part of part of Hillsdale College’s DC-based Kirby Center for the Constitution and Citizenship “First Principles on First Fridays” lecture series, John Bolton spoke at the Heritage Foundation today. 9/11 is of course a somber anniversary for our country, and a fitting moment to reflect on how how American foreign policy is being shaped in the post-George W. Bush era. In Ambassador Bolton’s view, it is not | Read More »
International Busy Body Laws Waning?
Are we beginning to see the first cracks in the idea of “universal jurisdiction,” the international busy body “law” that said that any nation can arrest the leaders of any other nation and try them for “war crimes”? Let us hope we are, at least. Now, I’ve always contended that the Nuremberg trials of Nazi war criminals was a mistake. Not because those Nazi scum | Read More »
North Korea to UN: Apologize, or we’ll test some nukes.
Did something get lost in translation? – Because there seems to be a couple of gaps there in the logic chain. N Korea threatens nuclear tests North Korea has threatened to carry out nuclear missile tests unless the UN Security Council apologises for its condemnation of a recent rocket launch. Pyongyang said it would be compelled to take self-defence measures “including nuclear and intercontinental ballistic | Read More »
Well Then, If That’s How You Feel
You know, I’ve always been on the “Let’s leave the UN” bandwagon, but this time I think we should really consider leaving the UN. Not only is there a strong Anti-American and anti-Semitic bias in the UN, but there’s also a strong support for nations that harbor terrorism such as Iran, Saudi Arabia, and the like. Hell the UN is the most ineffective and insignificant | Read More »
I have a few responses to UN SecGen’s ‘deadbeat’ comment…
…(via Jules Crittenden) it’s just that most of them are foul. Which, by a fascinating coincidence, is precisely the word that I’d use to describe the actions that the UN bureaucracy often finds itself involved in, usually involving children and teenagers. I will promise this, though: if the President decides to go a little further than ‘unfortunate‘ I won’t stop him. If he decides that | Read More »
Obama Returns UN Ambassador To Cabinet Level – Trouble Lies ahead
Barack Obama announced Monday that Susan Rice would be taking the post as United States Ambassador to the United Nations. Her significance as an Obama appointment is not a crucial as the status that Obama is going to give the post of UN Ambassador, returning it to Cabinet status. From a diplomatic view point this places the UN Ambassador on the same level as the | Read More »

There’s a special addendum concerning Islam don’t ya know.Does anyone for a moment think this will have any effect on the radical islamistsor that when they get done | Read More »
Why the League of Democracies will not work
Senator McCain has proposed a League of Democracies to confront the world’s problems. He feels this would be more effective in dealing with problems than the United Nations whether it comes to dealing with Iran, confronting genocide in Sudan, fighting AIDS in Sub Saharan Africa and working together to solve the crisis facing our environment. While he hopes this will streamline decision making by uniting | Read More »
Global Poverty Act
I contacted my senators, Bob Corker and Lamar Alexander last week about the Global Poverty Act (S2433). I haven’t yet received a reply from Lamar Alexander, but I have received a response from Sen. Corker. Corker, a Republican, appears to be in support of the bill. I encourage everyone to put the pressure on your senators to fight this bill. In my opinion, it sells | Read More »
