    UN Spins In Circles While Syria Spins Out of Control

    On the very same day of this attack, and shortly before the United Nations observer mandate in Syria is due to expire on July 20th, the feckless United Nations Security Council was preparing to vote on a resolution offered by the United Kingdom that was supposedly designed to up the ante to deal with the Syrian crisis. The vote was postponed for a day at the urging of UN-Arab League envoy to Syria Kofi Annan, the former UN Secretary General.

    ---

    In a rare bit of candor for a UN diplomat, the current president of the Security Council, Columbian Ambassador Néstor Osorio, conceded in response to my question that there wasn’t really very much that the Security Council or the United Nations could do in any event to solve the Syrian crisis.

    Peace through censorship is not a peace worth having.

    The ACLU is the most conservative organization in America...and I'm not joking...and I love them for it.

    Regarding the sovereignty issue, the Constitution makes no such distinction.


    He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.

    Why Does the UN Still Exist?

    7/25/12
    by Kenneth Anderson

    Corrupt and ineffective, it falsely promises that global governance and peace are near at hand.

    What exactly is the United Nations and, for that matter, why is there still a United Nations at all? How has it managed to survive over time, from 1945 down to the present—given its long record of underperformance, frequent outright failure, and even more frequent irrelevance?

    On the United Nations’ core issues—collective peace and security, development, and universal human values and rights—its record is mediocre, unless one counts sheer institutional persistence as enough. And that record is particularly poor concerning the issue from which the collective sprang in 1945: international peace and security through the collective itself. Why, then, has not the ruthless evolutionary logic of history pruned it as a failed institutional sapling in a relentlessly competitive forest, as the League was pruned?

    The textbooks in international law and organizations provide one set of answers to account for the persistence of the United Nations. They tell us the heroic story of the United Nations’ founding in 1945 and the first meetings in San Francisco; Eleanor Roosevelt et al. They tell us about the efforts of the Second World War Allies to create an organization that would be able to establish true collective security and avoid the fatal—and predictable—errors of international organizations that yielded, among other things, the failed League of Nations and the naïve Kellogg-Briand Pact. They describe the present-day organization as an attempt to provide global governance in a recalcitrant world. They tend, above all, to tell a progressive moral history—“Whig history”—of advances toward greater and better international order through international law and organizations.

    UN Illegally Shipped American High Tech to Iran

    by Daniel Greenfield
    Sep 18th, 2012

    Also North Korea. Because the UN has a deep abiding love for any regime that kills its people by the thousands.

    The controversial shipments of U.S.-made computer equipment to North Korea and Iran by the United Nations’ World Intellectual Property Organization was not only “unjustified” but something “we simply cannot fathom,” according to an independent investigative report, commissioned by WIPO itself.

    In the newest case involving North Korea, the WIPO goods, ostensibly part of a routine technology upgrade for that country’s patent retrieval system, included along with ordinary laptop computers and other goods a “very capable” hardware firewall and network security system that is subject to “a very high level of U.S. licensing requirements” for so-called “dual-use” items, which have a number of non-civilian applications.

    This is another reason why sanctions are completely useless. Saddam easily used corrupted UN employees to get his regime anything he wanted.

    United Nations looks to extract significant profit from Brazilian offshore oil bonanza

    Kurt Wayne
    9/24/12


    Over the weekend, the Rio de Janeiro newspaper O Globo published this story about the United Nations looking to grab (the verb that the newspaper used translates "to bite") up to 7% of profits of the emerging gigantic offshore oil fields off southeastern Brazil.

    On the surface, this story is somewhere in significance between President Obama's eagerness to support Brazilian energy independence (at the expense of our own) and the onerous treaties the United Nations would like to foist on America...the United Nations claim to the sub-equatorial oil is from the Montego Bay treaty of years back. Brazil's "Pre-salt" oil fields contain potentially 60-80 billion barrels of oil and 1 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, which could translate into hundreds of billions for the U.N. Leaving aside the potential payoffs to the President's friends at Turtle Bay, this brings up a different question.

    ---

    The "Pre-salt" areas of Brazil, by contrast, are in basins 20,000 feet below the Atlantic Ocean surface, a few hundred miles off Brazil's coast. Again, most residents there might not be aware of any drilling activity until there's a problem. The two largest metropolitan areas on the Gulf of Mexico (Houston, metro population 6 million and Tampa/St.Petersburg, 2.8 million) never really saw effects from the Deepwater Horizon incident. By contrast, the pre-salt area lies off the coast between São Paulo (nearly 20 million) and Rio de Janeiro (11.5 million). Think of New York City being a couple hundred miles down the coast from Los Angeles, with a gigantic fleet of deep water oil rigs not far off the waters between them. The Brazilians are experts at offshore drilling having 50 years of experience in it, but accidents have happened. Several oil spills have occurred in areas there such as the Bay of Guanabara right next to Rio. If a significant accident ever occurs, untold numbers of residents in Brazil's two largest metropolitan areas could be affected.

    One would think that the U.N., and President Obama, would want to do everything possible to protect 30+ million human beings and untold amounts of marine wildlife from the potential, possibly incalculable disaster of a ruptured sub-Salt oil platform. But apparently, petroleum-induced danger doesn't mean that much when there are piles of money to be had.

    It's horrific how pedophiles infiltrate humanitarian groups who help children to get their kicks. This happened in 2008. I hope they fixed the problem. I've heard pedophilia is the most difficult of criminal anomalies to fix. People who do the deed and get caught have a high recidivism rate. I can imagine it's a crime like others in that they are such effective communicators to children they seduce as to what will happen to people they love if they tell, that it's hard to catch them timely and treat the sickness at an early stage. After years of indenturing into the pattern that pedophilia is as a sickness, it's surely nigh on to impossible to fix.

    UN Now Openly Interfering in Presidential Election

    October 22, 2012
    By Daniel Greenfield

    First we’re getting election monitors, thanks to requests from the NAACP and other groups associated with the Democratic Party who for some reason claim that their own Attorney General running the most intrusive and abusive DOJ since RFK is incapable of handling the job.

    The observers, from countries such as Germany, France, Serbia, Belarus, Ukraine and Kazakhstan, will observe voting at polling places and other political activity.

    Kazakhstan hasn’t held a single election deemed fair by those same observers… which eminently qualifies it to observe US election fairness.

    But then Ben Emmerson, a notorious defender of terrorists and the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Counter-Terrorism and Human Rights decided to go ahead and threaten Americans with legal action if they vote for Romney.

    Will other stalwarts of democracy and freedom such as Iran, Russia, and Venezuela -- all three accused of election fraud -- be participating in this U.N. endeavor?

    Alas, cry the beloved country. . . .
