Under the guise of battling the Islamic State and jihadists on the Internet, the European Union’s self-styled “police” force, dubbed “Europol,” is launching a new bureaucracy to supposedly combat “online propaganda” and “extremism” with censorship. The so-called EU “Internet Referral Unit” (IRU) will be charged with monitoring the World Wide Web, taking down and flagging “extremist” material, providing information and analysis to EU member governments, and looking forward to the future. While details of the unit remain hazy, critics are expressing concerns — both about the EU usurpation of the awesome power to unilaterally censor the Internet, and the constantly changing definition of “extremism” to cover increasingly broad swaths of the population.
As part of what experts call a war on tax competition and low taxes, a coalition of high-tax governments from around the world is working to erect a radical new planetary taxation regime that would crush what remains of financial privacy and national sovereignty while seriously harming the global economy. The controversial plot, led by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the G-20 group of governments and dictators, is already encountering opposition from lawmakers, industry, and liberty-minded non-profit organizations. However, with the Obama Treasury Department and other key players apparently already on board with the anti-tax-competition scheming, opponents are warning that Congress must get involved if the plan is to be stopped. Some critics say it is time to end U.S. funding for the “destructive” OECD, too.
According to recently published official documents, a scandal-plagued U.K. government snooping unit bombastically styling itself the “Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group” (JTRIG) has been using “behavioral science,” social-media trolls, and online propaganda to manipulate public opinion and destroy critics at home and abroad.
Obama’s Education Secretary Arne Duncan is pushing a plan to create government boarding schools because, he claims, there are just certain children that government should “have” 24 hours a day, seven days a week. He also wants to turn all other schools into “community centers.” In reality, he wants more time to indoctrinate American children, as his own remarks make clear.
Offering yet another illustration of the true agenda behind what the United Nations mischaracterizes as “human rights,” UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon claimed the polarizing U.S. Supreme Court ruling purporting to redefine marriage for all 50 states was a “great step forward for human rights in the United States.”
A puppet with a YouTube channel, a sense of humor, and a German accent has been exposing and lambasting United Nations wrongdoing, sex abuse, pedophilia, coverups, and gross ethical challenges in a series of videos that is making waves on the Internet — and it apparently has upset senior UN officials embroiled in the growing scandals. For weeks now, “Professor Hans von Puppet,” as the lovable character from “Turtle Bay University” is known, has been hammering the UN, with a particular emphasis on the global outfit’s persecution of a Swedish whistleblower who exposed “peacekeeping” troops in Africa raping young children.
Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and the group Republicans Overseas Action are planning a lawsuit against the Obama administration’s Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Service, the latest effort to stop a deeply controversial scheme known as the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) that turns constitutional privacy protections upside down. Represented by a leading constitutional attorney, Senator Paul is taking aim at a barrage of pseudo-treaties — so-called “Intergovernmental Agreements” (IGAs) — negotiated by the administration with foreign governments and dictatorships under FATCA to share personal data. Critics contend that the information-sharing agreements and the statute itself are unconstitutional for numerous reasons.
The Obama administration is going full speed ahead in its efforts to nationalize and federalize state and local police departments across America. This is not only unconstitutional, but a terrible and dangerous idea.
Leading federal Indian policy expert Elaine Willman, author of Going to Pieces: The Dismantling of the United States of America, told The New American in an exclusive in-studio interview that the Obama administration and federally funded tribal governments are colluding to assault the U.S. Constitution, property rights, and American liberties. She said the American people must wake up to the threat and take action.
The man charged with massacring nine churchgoers in Charleston, South Carolina, and shocking the rest of the world with an incomprehensibly vicious act of evil, has been variously described as a monster, a racist, a terrorist, a hate criminal, a neo-Nazi, an anti-Semite, a druggie, and more. Beyond that, a “manifesto” attributed to the alleged killer, Dylann Roof, 21, exposes the author of the screed as an anti-American collectivist race-monger obsessed with superficial characteristics such as skin color who harbored a bizarre wish to spark a “race war.” Ironically, though, despite agitation and hate spewing by some race mongers, the drug user’s massacre of innocent Christians brought many Americans of all races together across South Carolina and beyond like never before. In other words, Roof failed.
