Protests in semi-autonomous Hong Kong demanding more liberty and autonomy from the Communist Chinese dictatorship ruling mainland China have been boiling over in recent days, with the regime in Beijing and its minions in Hong Kong’s government using tear gas and heavy-handed police tactics to disperse fast-growing demonstrations. Instead of breaking up, though, the crowds grew larger.
Under the guise of fighting “terrorism,” a controversial proposal by the Obama administration to create a new international travel regime controlling who can go where, and when, was adopted unanimously by the United Nations Security Council on September 24. Among other elements, the new UN regime purports to force national governments and dictators to adopt laws prohibiting travel abroad by anyone “suspected” of links to “terror,” which the UN has no definition for. In addition to boosting the UN’s role in allegedly fighting nebulous notions of “terrorism” and “extremism,” the measure will also further empower the global outfit’s fledgling self-styled “law enforcement” agency known as Interpol. While Obama and the UN claim their new regime is "binding" on humanity, it will not be presented to the U.S. Senate for the constitutionally required advice and consent needed for treaties.
Amid the stench of virtually non-stop scandals and even being in criminal contempt of Congress due to the ongoing Fast and Furious cover-up, Obama’s disgraced Attorney General Eric Holder plans to resign as soon as a replacement is found. The White House announced the deeply controversial figure’s resignation on Thursday after resisting years of public and congressional pressure on the issue. For some critics, though, resigning is not enough — they say Holder ought to be prosecuted and jailed for a wide range of serious crimes. Former Justice Department officials and analysts, meanwhile, said repairing the damage Holder has done would be a Herculean but crucial task for his successor.
After having already handed Libya to al-Qaeda-linked jihadists with help from NATO and the United Nations, the Obama administration this week began bombing targets in Syria without congressional or constitutional authority. The plot to bomb Syria is supposedly aimed at battling the self-styled “Islamic State” (also known as ISIS and ISIL) — a terror group that has been among the top beneficiaries of the U.S. government’s controversial machinations in Syria thus far. However, as the bombs were raining down on Syria, top administration officials were openly celebrating their half-baked plan to help overthrow the dictatorship of Bashar al Assad, too.
With no global warming for almost two decades and record-high levels of sea ice, increasingly desperate climate alarmists have been frantically searching for something — anything! — to keep the hysteria from melting completely. That is especially important now, with the United Nations convening its member governments and dictators in New York to map out new taxes and a global “climate” regime to impose on humanity under the guise of fighting warming. Then it happened: On September 15, the Obama administration’s scandal-plagued agencies NASA and NOAA, which have been repeatedly accused by experts of manipulating temperature data to show warming, announced that August had allegedly been (just barely) the “warmest on record.” It seems that was not actually the case, climate researchers say.
Amid no increase in temperatures for almost two decades and record-high levels of sea ice, tens of thousands of global-warming protesters, maybe more, marched in New York City on Sunday demanding a wide array of absurdities and totalitarian measures.
Russia is essentially an oligarchy, with the rich and powerful running the show. And America is increasingly becoming as centralized as Russia. Now, we are being drawn together.
A cursory look at world events, especially in Ukraine, suggests that Vladimir Putin is re-engaging the Cold War, but a closer look indicates that he is working with the West.
The supposed “moderate” rebels fighting Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad — self-styled jihadists whom the Obama administration and Congress plan to supply with even more support under the guise of battling the Islamic State (ISIS) — recently signed a non-aggression pact with ISIS (also known as ISIL), according to reports from human-rights groups and French news agency Agence France-Presse (AFP). Lawmakers on Capitol Hill pointed to the news as yet another reason why supplying U.S. arms and support to Islamic forces to battle Islamic forces was a dangerous idea. The foreign-policy establishment, however, plans to proceed with arming and training jihadists anyway.
Without congressional or constitutional authorization, this week Obama announced a plan to send 3,000 U.S. troops to West Africa, supposedly to help African governments deal with the deadly Ebola virus by imposing what amounts to medical martial law. Among other controversial activities, American forces will be working with the Liberian military to quarantine entire villages as police and troops put the entire nation of Sierra Leone on lockdown. Obama is also helping to boost the powers and capabilities of dictator-dominated international organizations under the guise of fighting the disease. Critics, though, are expressing outrage over the machinations even as senior administration officials struggle to explain it all.
