UN VS US

I wonder how all those leftists who fervently worship at the shrine of the moral cesspit that is the United Nations feel about this?

 

The United Nations has warned Barack Obama that the US should not carry out “punitive” strikes against Syria for its alleged use of chemical weapons. Reported by the Associated Press, Ban Ki Moon said an attack to punish Syria would “unleash more turmoil”, adding that the UN Charter made illegal any military action unless in self defense or approved by the Security Council.

Well, back in the days of the evil George W Bush, it was made clear that America operated to ITS laws, not those of the UN. I supported that view and still do since i believe the UN to be a force for inertia at best, genocide at worst. BUT the left loudly opposed the approach of George W as it insisted that the UN must fully

approve whatever was to be done. Well, look at what is happening now. Obama, Kerry and Pelosi – the unholy trinity – are making noises that are clearly at odds with the WILL of the UN.

So if it was wrong to ignore the UN back then, why is it right to do so now?

Barry’s Babes

By Patrick Van Roy On June 5th, 2013 at 9:04 pm

The wonderful arrogance of The President never ceases to amaze and delight. King Barry has decided that since none of the current scandals can touch him due to the blind protection given him by the Press and Government Unions he will just march on with his agenda. Bless his little hate filled heart.

So he will appoint the following two Witches to prominent seats of power.

Susan Rice will go from Ambassador to the U.N. into the job of National Security Adviser. It will also block her from being called before the Oversight Committee.

riceliarWASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama’s top national security adviser Tom Donilon is resigning and will be replaced by U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, marking a significant shakeup to the White House foreign policy team.  (no it doesn’t)

Rice, a close Obama confidante, came under withering criticism from Republicans as part of the investigations into the deadly attack on a U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya. Rice, relying on talking points from the intelligence community, said in television interviews that the attacks were likely spontaneous, which was later proven incorrect. (no she is still under investigation and is likely to be subpenaed)
Obama considered nominating Rice as his second-term secretary of state, but she withdrew amid the GOP criticism, saying she didn’t want her confirmation fight to be a distraction for the White House. (in other words he doesn’t want her asked who told her to lie about Benghazi)

Her new post as national security adviser does not require Senate confirmation. (how convenient)

Rice will be a perfect NSA after all she was one of the master minds as NSC Africa specialist, together with the then NSC terrorism specialist Richard A. Clarke, who successfully lobbied for continuing to bar U.S. officials, including the CIA and FBI, from engaging with the Khartoum government. Which might have prevented 9/11 from happening.

Now the Special Princes.. the PERFECT Ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power. A true hate America first unless Israel is involved, in that case hate Israel THEN the U.S.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A White House official says President Barack Obama will name former aide Samantha Power as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

Power is a longtime Obama adviser who worked on his 2008 presidential campaign and ran the human rights office in the White House. She left the administration in February but was considered the favorite to replace Rice at the U.N.

Here is an old piece on the wonderful Ms. Powers. This piece highlights why she is perfect for the U.N.

Obama, Libya, and Israel

Really?

By Patrick Van Roy On July 16th, 2012 at 9:43 pm

This is what the She-Beast is up to, besides being pelted with Tomatoes.

Clinton waives conditions placed by Congress on the 1.3 billion dollars of aid – requiring Egypt to meet certain democratic reforms before being granted the funds.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton gave the green light Friday for U.S. military aid to Egypt despite concerns that Cairo was not meeting goals in its democratic transition.

Clinton waived conditions placed by Congress on the 1.3 billion dollars of aid – requiring Egypt to meet certain democratic reforms before being granted the funds – saying the move was in the United States’ national interest.

“These decisions reflect America’s over-arching goal: to maintain our strategic partnership with an Egypt made stronger and more stable by a successful transition to democracy,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said.

Now she does these actions on behalf of the American Public at the Orders of President Obama. The other issue is even more troublesome.

The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which she will sign on Friday the 27th is a direct assault on the American Public and the U.S, Constitution. Now there are not enough votes in the Senate to Ratify it, but it doesn’t have to be ratified, to be implemented. If a Treaty is signed by the Secretary of State, and not renounced by the President, and not voted on by the Senate IT BECOMES THE LAW.

On July 27th, the nations of the world are scheduled to meet in New York to sign a global Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). Disguised as a way to prevent the proliferation of small arms throughout the world, it is, in fact, a backdoor way to legislate gun control in the United States and effectively repeal our Second Amendment.

The ATT will set up a global body which will require all nations to regulate firearms so that they can prevent their exportation to other countries. Inevitably, this will require countries to inventory the guns in private hands and to register them. A gun ban is not far away.

The ATT, under the Supremacy Clause of the US Constitution, would have the power of a constitutional amendment and would, effectively, repeal the Second Amendment guaranteeing us the right to bear arms.

If after she signs this Treaty Obama is reelected there will be people coming door to door for our guns. There will be blood. Do not underestimate the venom and violence that the American Public will react with. I posted a clip of what the head of the NRA said to the U.N. and he represents the sane gun owners.

U.S. Constitution: Second Amendment A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Whose original intent was to ensure our Freedom against the Tyranny of the State. The PEOPLE shall be allowed to own and carry their guns so that if the POLITICIANS become a threat to our FREEDOMS the People can form Militias and over throw the Government by force if necessary. It has nothing to do with Hunters….

UN-BELIEVABLE

By David Vance On July 8th, 2012 at 6:37 pm

The UN should almost be congratulated for taking moral crassness to a whole new level and proving that those who urge all civilised Nations to leave this corruptocracy are RIGHT!

“Iran was elected to a top post on the UN Arms Trade Treaty conference, revealed UN Watch today in an exclusive report. The Geneva-based human rights group is calling on UN chief Ban Ki-moon, who addressed the conference on the same day, to condemn the selection of the Tehran regime.

Although the U.N. conference websiteand summary fail to name the 15 members elected to the bureau on July 3rd, UN Watch has discovered that the countries elected to the five regional groups include Iran, Japan, and South Korea for the Asian group; Kenya, Egypt and Nigeria for Africa; Azerbaijan, Belarus, and Ukraine for Eastern Europe; Australia, Netherlands and Switzerland for the Western Europe & Others Group; and Mexico and two others for Latin America(See U.N. webcast here, announcing election of Iran at minute 4:45.)

So, not only does Syria get UN favoured status but now also Iran. This United Nations is a malignant cancer of an organisation and only  the most morally bankrupt would put any credibility or indeed confidence in it EVER doing the right thing.

WHEN THE SURREAL BECOMES ABSURD..

By David Vance On July 5th, 2012 at 10:20 am

The United Nations. It’s the “highest moral authority” for some on the Left. It’s an obscene immoral abomination for most on the right. But it has standards. So, for example, it refuses to countenance Israel as a member of the UN Human Rights Council, but holds no such qualms for more… progressive regimes over the years such as..erm.. Cuba, Libya, China, Russia to name but a few.

However, can you guess which in the news Nation looks set to get a seat on the UNHRC? Yes – that’s right – SYRIA. Looks like Boy Bashar has slaughtered just enough people to get Syria a seat on this important UN body which care so passionately, so deeply, about Human Rights.

In the past decade, the U.N. Human Rights Council elected Col. Muammar Gaddafi’s Libya as chair, hailed Sri Lanka’s “promotion and protection of all human rights” after its army had killed thousands of civilians, and convened an emergency session to lament the death of Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, founder of the Hamas terrorist organization. Even so, historians will now have to decide whether the U.N.’s flagship human rights body is about to sink to a new low.

According to a U.S.-sponsored and EU-backed draft resolution that was debated today during informal meetings at the council in Geneva, the murderous regime of Bashar al-Assad is a declared candidate for a seat on the 47-nation U.N. body, in elections to be held next year at the 193-member General Assembly. As part of the U.N.’s 53-nation Asian group, Syria’s candidacy would be virtually assured of victory due to the prevalent system of fixed slates, whereby regional groups orchestrate uncontested elections, naming only as many candidates as allotted seats.

ROBERT MUGABE – UN ENVOY

By David Vance On May 30th, 2012 at 8:24 am

The United Nations puts itself beyond satire…

Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe is the latest international envoy to represent the United Nations World Tourism Organisation. Mugabe gained the recognition despite a poor international reputation in which he is accused of ethnic cleansing, rigging elections and leading Zimbabwe’s ruined economy. University of Zimbabwe politics professor John Makumbe was surprised by the accolade. “I think it’s ridiculous because Zimbabwe is one of the countries least used by tourists,” said Makumbe.

I understand UNICEF are considering making Bashar Assad one of it’s advocates for the right of the child to life….

UN PRAISES GADAFFI!

By David Vance On March 15th, 2012 at 6:54 pm

The United Nations, that cabal of organised moral hypocrisy, once again lives down to expectations by…and you gotta love the stunning stupidity of this one…PRAISING Gadaffi’s human rights record!

A U.N. report ridiculed worldwide for lavishing praise on the Qaddafi regime’s human rights record was unanimously adopted today by the 47-nation UN Human Rights Council, with president Laura Dupuy Lasserre overruling the objection made in the plenary by UN Watch. After it was first exposed by UN Watch last year, the report card giving high marks to Qaddafi was mocked by the New York TimesThe Economist and other major media worldwide, causing a red-faced UN to postpone the report’s adoption repeatedly — until today. Suzanne Nossel, the new head of Amnesty USA, and previously the  Obama Administration’s Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for International Organizations, where she was responsible for U.S.  engagement at the U.N. Human Rights Council, described the council’s report as “abhorrent”

Look, the UN Human Rights Council is an oxymoron, obviously.

I was curious about those nations currently represented on it and here are some of the fearless proponents of Human Rights represented…

Russia…a beacon for human rights.

Angola. Yip, they are clear advocates on a global scale.

Cuba. Natch.

Just disappointed North Korea not there.

THE HIGHEST MORAL AUTHORITY…

By David Vance On February 5th, 2012 at 9:15 am

You can always rely on the UN to live down to expectations;

Western nations have deplored the vetoing by Russia and China of a UN resolution condemning the crackdown in Syria on anti-government protests. The US said the veto was “shameful”, while Britain said it “lets the Syrian people down”. France also condemned the block at the UN Security Council. Russia and China said the proposed draft was “unbalanced”. The document was rejected just hours after activists accused Syrian troops of killing at least 55 people in Homs.

As I have long argued, the United Nations is an organised hypocrisy, and in a crisis, it will always do the same thing – nothing. There are those on the Left who shill for it, claiming it it has  the world’s highest moral authority. This shows their own detachment from reality. The League of Nations failed and the UN has failed. Tear it down and start again. Mind you, some people to appreciate the UN impotence…

Russia and China braved Arab and Western fury tonight by vetoing a UN resolution calling on President Bashar al-Assad to step down.

UNITED NATIONS MOTTO

IN THE CRUCIBLE OF THE DAMNED..

By David Vance On October 5th, 2011 at 7:01 am

The sheer dysfunctionalism of the United Nations has been a running theme in these pages for years. I wear my antipathy towards that organised hypocrisy as a badge of moral honour. Get this;

 China and Russia have vetoed a UN Security Council resolution condemning Syria over its crackdown on anti-government protesters. The European-drafted resolution had been watered down to try to avoid the vetoes, dropping a direct reference to sanctions against Damascus. But Moscow and Beijing said the draft contained no provision against outside military intervention in Syria. The US envoy to the UN said Washington was “outraged” by the vote.

The US envoy can well be outraged. Russia and China, those twin beacons of repression and State tyranny, can be relied upon to be unreliable. Boy Bashar gets a bye and can carry on killing.
