The United Nations war on the free press and whistleblowers continues to escalate. After a UN “court” tried to put a journalist in jail, among other brazen attacks on media freedom, a rogue UN agency is now abusing the Italian legal system to pursue criminal charges and crippling damages against a local newspaper and its editor. The supposed “crime”: allegedly damaging the reputation of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) through articles exposing corruption, lawlessness, cronyism, and nepotism within the Rome-based UN agency. It is hardly the first time the UN has sought to silence the press.
The Canadian Parliament is considering a "gender identity" bill, C-16, that could have dangerous free speech implications. The bill seeks to add "gender identity and gender expression" to the country's protected classes listed in the Canadian Human Rights Act; however, opponents of the measure fear it will force those who consider gender dysphoria a mental illness to remain silent on the issue.
Under pressure from both domestic and international sources, Venezuela’s Supreme Court reversed its recent decision to transfer all legislative powers from the country’s congress to itself.
It certainly is poetic — whether you think it’s justice or not depends on your point of view. But after advocating an open-borders policy and demeaning its opponents as “racists,” some Swedish feminists are now leaving migrant-heavy areas of their nation that they say are controlled by Islamic fundamentalists.
European Union bosses are coming unhinged after all attempts to stop British secession failed. With the British government formally launching the Brexit process by invoking “Article 50” of the Treaty on European Union this week, multiple top EU bosses are in meltdown mode, erratically lashing out all over the place. Unelected EU “President” Jean-Claude Juncker, for example, blasted President Donald Trump for his hostility to the controversial European superstate, with the EU chief even threatening to promote the dissolution of the United States in retaliation. Top leaders in the EU's pseudo-“Parliament,” worried about other nations seceding, were also left frothing, making outlandish demands on Britain while trying to terrorize British voters with threats of “tough negotiations” and future pain.
Warmongering U.S. Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.), perhaps the most aggressive neocon globalist in the Senate, complained in Europe last week that what he called the “New World Order” was “under enormous strain.” The widely ridiculed “Republican in Name Only,” or RINO as critics refer to him, also defended key globalist institutions such as the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the European Union (EU), both of which are under growing pressure from outraged citizens demanding a return of national sovereignty and self-government. Critics were quick to ridicule McCain and some of his conspiracy theories, but the globalist establishment fawned over his comments.
President Donald Trump's effort to slash U.S. tax funding for the United Nations by at least half does not go nearly far enough, according to a former UN staffer who saw the horror show that is the UN, up close and personal. Instead, the ex-UN official argued, the United States must withdraw completely from the dangerous, scandal-plagued global body that threatens human rights, human life, and even “the well-being of the world.” Anything less will leave Americans as accomplices to the atrocities.
The reason for the harsh words is simple: The UN is filled with corrupt, racist, and criminal staff who engage in monstrous crimes and abuses, including the rape of children, all with impunity, said former UN staffer Pallavi Kakoti-McHugh.
Venezuela's leader Nicolas Maduro inherited an incredible bread machine, and has done everything in his power to demolish it.
In a move designed to chill free speech, a German “justice” official has proposed fining social-media sites up to $53 million for not swiftly deleting “hateful” posts. Welcome to the new Germany — same as the old Germany.
