While Obama framed his latest decrees on U.S. relations with the brutal Communist Cuban dictatorship this week as a way to “help” the people of Cuba and serve “American interests,” he failed to mention an important detail of his life that may have played a role in the decision. More than a decade before becoming president, Obama launched his fledgling political career in the home of an unrepentant communist terrorist whose murderous organization was backed primarily by none other than the ruthless Castro regime in Havana. That terrorist, of course, was William Ayers, co-founder of the Weather Underground infamous for bombings, terror attacks, robberies, and murders across the United States.

Despite promising repeatedly on the campaign trail to rein in George W. Bush’s executive-branch usurpations of power, Obama has been spewing a particular type of unconstitutional decree at a rate unprecedented in U.S. history. While the Obama administration has indeed unleashed a full-throated attack on the Constitution using “executive orders,” even more of his decrees have come in the form of so-called “presidential memoranda” — an almost identical type of “executive action” that he has used more than any previous U.S. president, according to a review published this week by USA Today.

Utah Demands Feds Surrender Lands by Dec. 31

With the federal government engaged in a de facto unconstitutional occupation across some two thirds of Utah’s territory, citizens of the state and their elected representatives have had just about enough. So, on December 31, the State of Utah is formally demanding that Washington, D.C., relinquish control over more than 30 million acres of valuable land currently controlled by various federal bureaucracies.

While apparatchiks for an all-powerful U.S. government and far-left activists are fuming over the plan, Utah lawmakers, citizens, and experts say the time has come for the state to manage — and profit from — its own resources. Constitutionally speaking, experts say the lands should have gone to state control decades ago, as the federal government promised.

Under the guise of stopping alleged man-made “global-warming,” which stopped at least 18 years ago according to the satellite temperature record, the United Nations and its largely autocratic member regimes agreed to a “historic” deal to reduce human emissions of what scientists call the “gas of life.” Meeting in Lima, Peru, thousands of “climate” dignitaries representing more than 190 governments and dictators on Sunday agreed to the non-binding UN scheme, widely ridiculed as “toothless.” Among other elements, the deal calls for the extraction of more wealth from Western taxpayers to fund Third World regimes, while prodding governments to force humanity to reduce its “carbon footprint.”

As South Africa descends into what its radical rulers refer to as the “Second Phase” of their communist revolution, warnings about an approaching genocide and full-blown communist tyranny are growing progressively louder. In a statement released last week, the organization Genocide Watch again sounded the alarm surrounding the ongoing, regime-linked preparations to exterminate minority Afrikaner farmers. South Africa’s credit rating, meanwhile, was downgraded again last month to barely above “junk” status. Parliament recently descended into a brawl after a politician called the president a "criminal and a thief." As the warning signs become increasingly obvious, however, the establishment media around the world continues to look the other way.

 

 

Attacking the United States and fomenting misguided hatred seems to have become the top priority of the “dictators club,” more formally known as the United Nations. Just days ago, a multi-pronged UN assault on U.S. gun rights, local police, national sovereignty, federalism, and more, was unleashed in the wake of the chaos in Ferguson. Now, as Americans across the political spectrum express outrage and sadness about the tragic death of Eric Garner by a police officer who was not indicted by a grand-jury, UN boss Ban Ki-moon, sensing another opportunity to meddle in U.S. affairs, is again barking commands at the American people as if he were some sort of benevolent global overlord. Hordes of UN “human rights” experts also joined in.

The United Nations’ self-styled “International Criminal Court,” a would-be global judicial branch widely ridiculed as a kangaroo court because it doesn't adhere to Western judicial standards, is examining the actions of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan to determine whether a full investigation and possible prosecution is warranted, ICC Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda announced with the release of an explosive report this week. Despite the fact that the U.S. government never ratified the agreement creating the UN “court,” the Hague-based body continues to act as if it has universal jurisdiction over every person on Earth — including Americans. According to an ICC report about its ongoing “preliminary examinations” of “international forces” in Afghanistan, with U.S. military members specifically cited for the first time, the ICC is focusing on allegations of detainee torture. In 2011, the ICC prosecutor also claimed to be probing the actions of U.S. forces in Libya.

Amid the ongoing implosion of their man-made global-warming theory, thousands of bureaucrats involved in the United Nations “climate” circus are meeting in Lima, Peru, for two weeks to continue plotting their scheme to impose a planetary carbon regime on humanity. But the fix is already in, according to the global body. In a press release, the UN declared that its plan to foist draconian global controls on the world was essentially a done deal, with the summit in the Peruvian capital serving merely to “hammer out” the “new universal UN-backed treaty on climate change” that “will be adopted” at the global-warming conference in Paris next year. Obama’s pseudo-treaty with brutal communist dictator Xi Jinping is apparently the “model” being pursued for the global regime.

After a spectacle featuring senior Obama administration officials prostrating themselves before the United Nations “Committee against Torture,” the controversial UN body released a scathing report last week accusing U.S. authorities of widespread violations of what it calls “international law.” Among other concerns, the global panel cited everything from “police brutality” by state and local officials domestically to the actions of the U.S. military and intelligence agencies abroad. Other criticism directed at the United States focused on immigration policies, deportations, prison conditions, Guantanamo Bay, the terror war, and more.

Pointing to the killing of Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson along with subsequent unrest in Ferguson and policing issues, the dictator-dominated United Nations just launched another brazen assault on America, U.S. sovereignty, and the gun rights of Americans. UN boss Ban Ki-moon, the global body’s “Human Rights Council,” and even the UN “Committee against Torture” all took turns lambasting the United States as an alleged stronghold of systemic racism and police brutality. To fix the problems, the UN argued, Americans and their elected officials must submit to the demands of self-styled global “authorities” — including more unconstitutional gun control to further restrict access firearms, and UN rules for police.
