In a half-baked effort to placate an outraged citizenry, Missouri officials claimed to be “replacing” Common Core with supposedly “new” standards allegedly developed with local input. In the real world, however, the dumbed-down, Obama-backed national “education” standards were preserved largely intact, just under a new name, following what participants called a “farce” process. The federally decreed testing regime and data-gathering schemes will continue, too. Critics and those involved in the process were outraged by the “un-American” scheming. They vowed to keep fighting, saying it was time to “clip the wings” of the state education bureaucracy.

Abandoned even by many of her allies and facing impeachment proceedings at home supported by more than nine out of 10 Brazilians, Brazil's embattled president, former communist terrorist Dilma Rousseff, was in New York City last week to fight back.

Thanks to a Clinton-era statute and an obscure development last month at the United Nations, federal law now officially makes it illegal for the Obama administration to send a single penny of your money to the UN climate bureaucracy. That is good news for U.S. taxpayers, of course. But it puts the UN and the Obama administration in an awkward position as they struggle desperately to convince other governments that the UN's much-touted “global-warming” regime, officially signed Friday, is not going to crumble in the face of a hostile Congress and a U.S. Constitution that has been trampled at every turn. Now, dozens of U.S. senators, who Obama and the UN hoped to bypass in imposing the global “climate” treaty in defiance of the U.S. Constitution, are putting the UN and Obama on notice.     

Officials with the European Union and its formerly sovereign member states are conspiring to usurp control over national militaries, with a goal of eventually building a transnational EU military loyal only to the unelected regime ruling Europe. Outrage surrounding the plot, however, is growing.

The many establishment analysts who portrayed the Communist Chinese dictatorship's new Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) as a supposed “rival” to the Western globalist-led international economic order must be awfully embarrassed right now. And those who believed them, hoping the brutal Beijing regime's bank was going to stand up to the World Bank-International Monetary Fund axis in particular, must be sorely disappointed. It turns out the scandal-plagued World Bank and the Communist Party of China-controlled AIIB are going to be partners in globalism. Together, the organizations will seek to promote the dangerous agenda known as “sustainable development” while undermining national sovereignty across Asia by bankrolling regional integration.

Seizing on the media- and government-manufactured “Panama Papers” brouhaha, governments and globalist organizations announced a wave of new edicts and agreements last week in a plot to kill what remains of financial privacy rights and impose a radical global tax regime on humanity. The Obama administration, the United Nations, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, Socialist International, the European Union, and more are fully behind the effort. Of course, as this magazine has documented, those establishment forces, socialist groups, international organizations, tax-funded shills, and bloated governments have been pushing the same dangerous agenda for years without much success. Now they see their chance.

 

 

A coalition of state attorneys general trying to terrorize, muzzle, and extort climate skeptics with legal assaults may have bitten off more than it can chew — and the AGs may eventually have to face justice, experts say. In recent days, an alliance of prosecutors purporting to “investigate” climate skeptics, which styles itself “AGs United for Clean Power,” has sparked a backlash of massive proportions. Now, the group of Democrat and far-left prosecutors is being accused of serious wrongdoing, including abuse of power, unethical behavior, and potential criminal activities such as conspiracy to deprive people of constitutionally protected rights.

If United Nations “peacekeeping” troops were on their way to the United States, at least one U.S. senator would be on the first plane home to protect his family from them. His concern: the apparently never-ending supply of rapists, predators, and child molesters among the UN's disgraced military forces.

That was the message delivered yesterday by U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), the powerful chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, during a hearing looking at the UN's response — mostly persecuting those who blow the whistle — to the growing scandal surrounding predatory UN soldiers who rape women and children worldwide with impunity. If something does not change, U.S. lawmakers said the UN may lose American taxpayer support for its “peace” armies. But even that is not enough.

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon celebrated the Obama administration's attempt to bypass Congress on imposing the controversial UN “climate” regime, an agreement to redistribute wealth and restrict energy inked by governments and dictators in Paris last year.

While the media-manufactured “scandal” of “rich people” allegedly hiding money from politicians in offshore accounts continues to be exposed as largely bogus, there have been some interesting revelations of alleged corruption among politicians and dictators to emerge from the so-called Panama Papers. The ruthless Communist Chinese dictatorship, which is censoring all news about the leak in domestic outlets, appears to be the regime with the most top level officials implicated.

Hundreds of other tyrants, politicians, bureaucrats, judges, crony bankers, officials, and their family members have also been ensnared, according to news reports about the leaked documents. Despite the lack of media attention, even the Hillary Clinton campaign, via senior Democrat operatives John and Tony Podesta and the Kremlin bank their firm represents, has been indirectly caught up in the maelstrom.
