In the Netherlands, the government will kill you at your request, if you are an alcoholic. Perhaps officials believe it is cheaper than paying for rehab.
Incoming United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres (shown) last week urged European Union politicians and bureaucrats to ignore voters and open up their borders, claiming the growing Islamic tsunami of African and Middle Eastern immigration into the West was “inevitable” anyway. Critics were outraged. Speaking like a committed globalist, the Socialist UN boss also suggested that “multi-ethnic,” “multi-religious,” and “multi-cultural” societies would be the only ones to succeed.
On a visit to Communist China this week, though, not a word was said by the new UN chief about the brutal regime's penchant for kidnapping savagely persecuted North Koreans and sending them back to be tortured and then murdered by the most barbarous totalitarian dictatorship on the planet. Instead, Guterres praised the communist tyrants in Beijing, currently engaged in what experts call the “cultural genocide” of Tibet, and encouraged the regime to continue pursuing its leadership role in what the UN refers to as “global governance.”
Bloomberg reported last Thursday that Venezuela’s currency — the bolívar fuerte or “strong bolivar” — has lost 45 percent of its purchasing power so far this month, with six days to go.
An award-winning video showing people with Down syndrome leading happy, productive lives has been banned from French TV because it might offend women who aborted their Down syndrome babies.
Fidel Castro is dead, but the Communist tyranny he imposed on the Cuban people lives on. Unfortunately, much of the American media are trying to bury the truth about his murderous regime — and those in America who helped Castro come to power — with him.
Even as voters worldwide defy the establishment and firmly reject globalism in democratic elections, seemingly tone-deaf globalists are demanding the surrender of vast new powers over taxation and national policy to the United Nations. If the UN is allowed to usurp the draconian powers demanded, freedom, privacy, and prosperity would become history.
The British parliament passed a law creating the most extensive surveillance state in the western world, forcing companies to track customers' Internet and phone communications and create "back doors" for government hackers.
Even as it threatens to illegally prosecute American soldiers, the dictator-dominated United Nations judicial body known as the “International Criminal Court” is imploding spectacularly on the world stage. With the withdrawal of the Russian government this week and South African authorities last month — not to mention the fact that the U.S. government never joined in the first place — the ICC appears to be on its deathbed. Other African and Asian governments are also preparing to exit the outfit. The establishment and various globalists are outraged, of course. But for humanity and the cause of true justice, the dictatorship-infested ICC's collapse is great news, as anyone familiar with the UN kangaroo court and its operation can attest.
Multi-national companies, such as Oreo cookie maker Mondelez International and Kimberly-Clark, have given up on Venezuela and its leader, Nicolas Maduro, and are getting out while they can.
