It has been said that political correctness kills. Now it might have killed an adolescent British girl, a young lady who, the story goes, might have chosen death over the stigma of being called “racist.”
As President Dilma Rousseff takes the stand in her defense during her impeachment trial in Brazil (for corruption), Americans might be heartened to learn not all the crooks are in Washington.

After enraging globalists around the world recently with his vow to ignore the “stupid” United Nations climate regime adopted in Paris, firebrand Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is at it again.

“The elite are not the problem right now; the people are,” said German president Joachim Gauck in June. His comment perhaps reflected an old division with a new twist. The division is the Elite vs. the Street. And then there's the twist.
Over the last year, The New American magazine published (online and in print) a series of articles exposing UNESCO chief Irina Bokova, a Bulgarian communist operative surrounded by corruption allegations who was being pushed by establishment forces as the “front-runner” to lead the United Nations next year. Apparently the widespread dissemination of the information, along with the tireless efforts of anti-communist Bulgarians to sound the alarm, may have played a significant role in derailing Bokova's bid to serve as UN secretary-general. Unsurprisingly, communist forces in Bulgaria, which remain very powerful to this day, joined with their allies in the media to libel this magazine and its parent organization, The John Birch Society, for exposing the truth. From claiming that The New American has links to Turkish intelligence or the KKK to arguing that the magazine is part of an imaginary “Kochtopus” conspiracy, no discredited libel was too ludicrous for Bokova's friends. However, one independent media outlet in Bulgaria, Faktor, offered The New American and this writer an opportunity to respond to the charges and the conspiracy theories. The translated interview was published on Friday, August 19, in Faktor.bg. What follows is the English version.

As Communist China prepares to host and lead the “Group of 20” G20 summit for the first time next month, the regime is boasting about its “leading role” in “global economic governance” and building up “the international order.” Bringing together the world's 20 most powerful governments and dictatorships to plot humanity's future, the Chinese Communist Party's brutal leaders and propaganda organs have been celebrating that emerging new world order — and their major role within it. At the upcoming summit, the regime also vowed to work with other G20 members to develop policies that will “steer the world economy into the future” toward a “green global economy” under the United Nations Agenda 2030 plan for humanity.
