Economic chicanery as being performed by EU and Greek officials can no longer be hidden from public view. Capital controls are just a symptom of a devastating disease infecting the eurozone.
Though Russian President Vladimir Putin has a carefully-crafted image as a Christian champion, his suppression of journalists is just one of many examples that he is in the same mold as Communist leaders of the old Soviet tyranny.
The United Nations “Special Tribunal for Lebanon” (STL) was ostensibly set up to find and bring to justice the killers of Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri, who was murdered a decade ago along with more than 20 others in a massive bomb explosion. But rather than fulfilling its mandate after squandering some $500 million tax dollars, the UN court is seeking to put journalist Karma Khayat in prison for seven years — not for killing the late Lebanese leader, but for her groundbreaking reporting on the case that exposed the court’s stunning incompetence. The Hague-based UN outfit is also demanding that Khayat’s media outlet, Beirut-based TV news station Al-Jadeed, hand over up to $7 million in “fines.”
In closing statements on June 19 and in an interview with The New American later in the day, Khayat lambasted the UN court and what she said was its outrageous assault on fundamental human rights.
Pope Francis's much anticipated encyclical on the environment touts climate alarmism and world government.
Hundreds of Haitian women and children were raped and sexually abused by predators in the United Nations “peace” military, according to a draft UN report obtained by the Associated Press, adding to a growing deluge of sex and murder scandals surrounding the controversial “blue helmets.” The news comes just months after UN troops in Mali slaughtered unarmed civilian protesters and UN forces in the Central African Republic were exposed systematically raping children as young as nine years old. Of course, the latest scandals also follow decades of similar abuses by UN forces, especially across Africa.
In response to the mushrooming scandals surrounding predatory UN troops who rape and abuse civilians, the tyrant-dominated global outfit is reportedly working a plan for paternity testing to uncover so-called “peacekeeper babies.” But instead of truly dealing with the grotesque revelations, the UN is busy persecuting whistleblowers who exposed the horrors while plotting ever-grander “peace” missions by its military forces. Critics worldwide and from across the political spectrum, however, say it is time for real investigations and an end to UN impunity.
