JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA — Obama arrived here on Thursday to encourage black Americans to go vote for Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton, but many black Americans — including progressives and prominent voices in Jacksonville — are not going for it. Even among black Obama supporters, enthusiasm for Clinton is low to non-existent. And despite the false and potentially racist image painted by the establishment media of a “black vote” that belongs to Democrats by default, black leaders from across the political spectrum tell The New American that black Americans, like all Americans, are waking up to “crooked Hillary.” One progressive black leader even described Clinton as a psychopathic anti-Christian who represents a mortal danger to blacks. And the feeling is apparently widespread.
When she stumbled across massive corruption and made-up statistics in her job at the United Nations, Rasna Warah knew she needed to act. But when she tried to blow the whistle, she was viciously attacked, publicly humiliated, threatened, intimidated, and more. Unfortunately, though, as Warah explains in her new book UNsilenced: UNmasking the United Nations' Culture of Cover-ups, Corruption and Impunity, her case is far from unique.
The Obama administration is facing criticism and ridicule after a bizarre outburst by the John Kerry-led State Department urging Hungarian authorities to prop up a defunct Communist Party propaganda organ. In an official statement, the Obama administration, which recently attacked media diversity in the United States, echoed discredited conspiracy theories pushed by communists and called on anti-communist Hungarian officials to prop up the bankrupt newspaper — supposedly to preserve “media pluralism.” But the ownership of the far-left paper, known as Nepszabadsag, wants to shut it down, citing growing financial losses and plunging circulation figures.
A year after the dictator-dominated United Nations declared war on “ideologies” such as “anti-Muslim bigotry” and opposition to mass immigration, the White House cooked up a fresh version of the Obama administration's national plot to supposedly prevent people from adopting unapproved ideologies.
If and when the world cooks from the alleged man-made global warming, the United Nations and its largely unfree member regimes are determined to make sure you have to endure it with no air-conditioner or refrigerator. But the latest development in the UN’s “green agenda” is about much more than waging war on prosperity, liberty, and cooling technologies under the guise of saving Mother Earth, as UN leaders made clear in recent days.
The so-called “green transformation” of the world toward centralized control and global governance is now “unstoppable” and “irreversible,” claimed the UN environmental czar after a UN summit in Rwanda last week. At the controversial UN conference, under the pretense of battling alleged man-made global warming, close to 200 governments and dictators agreed to amend the “Montreal Protocol” with a new jihad on important molecules used in everything from air-conditioners and refrigerators to medical inhalers.
Expressing nostalgia for the days when just three establishment-controlled propaganda organs dominated the public narrative, President Obama lashed out at what he called the “wild, wild west” media landscape that allows non-establishment voices and viewpoints to be heard. Claiming that “censorship” would not be the answer, Obama called for Americans to submit to a vaguely defined (presumably government-run) “curating function” that would help “discard” unapproved information. Critics, though, warned that an increasingly desperate establishment was plotting all-out war on freedom of the press and the free Internet.
The United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) will be meeting behind closed doors next month to push more and higher taxes around the world, sparking outrage from journalists, stakeholders, taxpayers, and more. Under the guise of reducing tobacco consumption and raising money for governments, the controversial global “health” outfit's Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) is also concocting broad policy measures having to do with border security, trade, “public health,” and more. And according to experts, some of those policy prescriptions, ironically, contribute to furthering illicit trade and, by extension, end up helping to fund terrorism. Others will fuel increased tobacco use, experts said.
Globalism-loving socialist Antonio Guterres of Portugal, infamous primarily for helping to engineer the massive tsunami of Islamic immigration into the West, has been officially selected as the next secretary-general of the United Nations. His prescription for what ails the world: more socialism at the planetary level, more power for the UN, more “global governance,” and more mass migration from the Third World to Western countries. In other words, more of the same extremism that already has the world on the brink.
In an apparent effort to protect Obama and Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, the politicized Obama Justice Department dropped charges against an arms dealer accused of arming Obama- and Clinton-backed Islamist terror groups. Among those receiving U.S. arms from the administration's illegal programs, the arms dealer said, were al-Qaeda, the Islamic State (ISIS), and other terrorist organizations, some of which went on to topple and kill former Libyan dictator and U.S. government “terror war” ally Moammar Gadhafi.
Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, who stood firm in defense of marriage and the Constitution despite a blatantly illegal U.S. Supreme Court ruling pretending to create a “right” to “homosexual marriage,” was suspended from his elected post this week by rogue judicial officials. The removal was obtained without the required unanimous support. According to Justice Moore's attorneys, that means the outcome of the legal assault was itself an “unbelievable violation of the law.”
Despite the lawless attack on Justice Moore, however, the fact remains that neither the U.S. Supreme Court nor the federal government have any legitimate authority over marriage — much less the authority to redefine or even undefine it and then impose their radical view on the entire nation.
