When the Obama administration failed in its bid five years ago to have the Democrat-controlled Congress create an unconstitutional cap-and-trade regime targeting carbon dioxide to fight “global warming,” it waited a few years, then imposed the radical scheme by executive decree. Rather than foisting it directly on businesses and individuals, Obama’s new presidential edicts purport to commandeer state governments for the purpose. The “regulations” even “graciously” offer states what the anti-CO2 zealots in the administration and its EPA describe as a “menu” of “policy options” they can “choose” from to comply with the edicts. Now, though, states are fighting back using everything from nullification to lawsuits.
Amid massive public opposition and behind-the-scenes globalist scheming, the new regime in Ukraine took a major step toward surrendering the nation’s sovereignty to the Brussels-based European Union super-state. In exchange for giving up self-government and independence to the unelected, perpetually expanding EU bureaucracy that now dominates policy across the 28-member bloc, Ukraine will be able to sell its exports without paying tariffs. Meanwhile, armed conflict continues to rage across wide swaths of Eastern Ukraine as the death toll rises.
The global establishment is increasingly pushing the notion of what it calls a “cashless society” — a world in which all payments and transactions would be conducted electronically, creating a permanent record for governments to inspect and track at will. Multiple governments from Africa and Asia to Europe and the Americas are explicitly working toward that goal, and in recent months, even more have joined the effort. Powerful globalist forces and organizations including the United Nations are helping. However, analysts are warning that the implications of such a shift would be nightmarish for liberty and privacy.
In an institution dominated by dictators and notorious for corruption and scandals, it takes a lot to stand out or attract worldwide condemnation and scrutiny from across the political spectrum. Director General Francis Gurry with the United Nations World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), though, has managed to accomplish precisely that — secretly sending technology to dictators, stonewalling investigations, allegedly retaliating against whistleblowers, engaging in alleged corruption and cronyism, and much more. Now he is even threatening journalists with criminal prosecutions for reporting on official documents outlining the alleged abuses.
As the grassroots uprising against the Obama administration-pushed nationalization of schools continues to grow, public sentiment is quickly turning against the widely criticized Common Core standards — especially among parents with school-age children. Indeed, since just November of last year, the shallow “support” that did exist for the controversial education scheme has plunged dramatically, a new survey showed. Other polls found similar results.
After another electoral victory in South Africa, the ruling African National Congress (ANC)-South African Communist Party (SACP) regime plans to pursue what it calls the “radical second phase” of its ongoing revolution. Among other elements, the SACP announced in a statement that the plot involves confiscating private property and businesses as part of “the strategic transformation of the ownership and control function of key commanding heights of the economy.” Some analysts are now sounding the alarm, but it may be too little too late.
Former general and CIA chief David Petraeus, a key figure in the globalist Council on Foreign Relations and the shadowy Bilderberg network, boasted at a recent conference that the United States of America is set to be merged into the continental regime being erected under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Speaking at the Margaret Thatcher Conference on Liberty last week in London, the ex-commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan and Iraq essentially celebrated the end of U.S. independence — and by extension, the demise of the Constitution.
Grassroots Republicans and conservatives across America are furious after the GOP establishment was exposed using dishonest, shameful, and potentially unlawful tactics against its own base in Mississippi. The goal of the dubious establishment operation was to prevent GOP voters from electing Tea Party-backed candidate Chris McDaniel, who was favored to win in a landslide based on surveys of Republican voters. In essence, though, the Republican establishment relied on lies, huge contributions from crony special interests, and deceitful fear-mongering to get Democrats to vote in the Mississippi GOP primary this week — likely in violation of state law, according to critics of the plot. Still, the fight is not over yet.
Sensing an opportunity to boost their own image and illegitimate power, bureaucrats from the dictator-dominated United Nations “Human Rights” apparatus are attacking authorities in Detroit for threatening to cut off water services on seriously delinquent accounts — mostly to unoccupied buildings, according to authorities. In response, the global outfit is making wild demands while seeking to impose what it refers to as “international law” on the American people.
The communist regime ruling over mainland China is stepping up its war against Christians, their churches, and, especially, the cross. In recent weeks, dozens of houses of worship in the province of Zhejiang have received official notices that crosses must come down. Despite resistance by local persecuted Christians, other churches have been entirely demolished as the regime furiously cracks down on what it calls “illegal” religious activities. Hundreds of church buildings have been torn down this year across China as leaders are arrested. And human rights organizations fear the worst is yet to come.
