It really is time to defund the UN and send them packing!
November 5, 2018 (American Thinker) – In the 1960s, an informed but naïve undergraduate, I was walking across the campus of the University of Pennsylvania with the Chairman of the Chemistry Department, Prof. Charles C. Price. He told me that he was president of the United World Federalists, and asked if I knew what that organization was. When I said that I did not, he replied that they believed in a one-world government that would grow out of the United Nations. I was nonplussed as I had never heard anyone suggest that idea before. To me, the United Nations was a benevolent organization dedicated to pressuring the world community in the direction of peace, and to operating charitable programs to help the struggling, impoverished peoples of the world. I imagined the UN as a kind of United Way on a worldwide scale.
How would Prof. Price's vision of a new world government emerge? Although there was a socialistic thread in its founding document, the United Nations was formed based on a vision of human rights presented in the "Universal Declaration of Human Rights" (UDHR) which placed the concept of rights at the forefront for the progress of the world body. And rights are the mainstay for uplifting human freedom and the dignity of the individual. The UDHR document followed many amazing documents that presented rights as the central concept of the post-feudal world: the English Declaration (or Bill) of Rights of 1689, the U.S. Declaration of Independence with its important and forceful assertion of inalienable natural rights, the powerful U.S. Bill of Rights enacted in 1791, and the French Declaration of the Rights of Man and the Citizen (1789).
The word "rights" appears in almost every sentence of the 1869-word UN document. The document is literally obsessed with rights, and one must assume they are likewise obsessed with the rights successes as manifested in the United Kingdom, the U.S., and France. However, there are some deviations from the rights usage we are all familiar with. In Article 3, Instead of the inalienable rights of "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" found in our Declaration of Independence, the UN declares everyone's right to "life, liberty and security of person." Are they implying that security will bring happiness? Or are they implying that happiness is too ephemeral a value, and too Western? Perhaps more mundane survival goals are needed by most of the world.
We see a reprise of items from our Bill of Rights such as condemnation of cruel and unusual punishment (Article 5), due process (Articles 6,7,8,9, 10, 11, 14, 17), illegal search and seizure (Article 12), and freedom of speech and assembly (Articles 19,20). But there are new rights introduced which, as early as 1945, were pointing the way towards intervention by the UN in the daily lives of people throughout the world. Throughout the document, they assert the right to food, clothing, medical care, social services, unemployment and disability benefits, child care, and free education, plus the right to "full development of the personality," (imagine, the UN says I have the right to be me) and the "right freely to participate in the cultural life of the community… and to enjoy the arts" (we each have the right to enjoy a painting or a movie). However, they do not state the right to appear on the "Tonight Show" or "Saturday Night Live", so there were limits to their largesse.
The entire "Transforming Our World" document is cast in a stream of consciousness of pious platitudes for a utopian future. It is an outsize utopian dream. Five of the 17 items pertain to the environment. There are goals for the cities, for women, for the poor, and even for life under the water. Absolutely no sphere of human activity is exempt from control by the UN. The key word of course is no longer "rights" except the oblique reference in Article 19. In fact, this writer did not see the word rights even once in this document even though that word appeared in practically every sentence of the original UN document.
The one-worlders of the 1950s and early 1960s are now in the UN driver's seat, and they have made their move. The overlay of Marxist talk about "meeting needs" has moved to center stage. The UN has assigned itself a time frame for moving forward in its plan for planetary hegemony.
UN COMMITTEE WANTS TO MAKE ABORTION AND ASSISTED SUICIDE A ‘UNIVERSAL HUMAN RIGHT’
The United Nations Human Rights Committee drafted a memo saying that abortion and physician-assisted suicide should be universal human rights.
The memo, or “general comment” on the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, calls for abortion to be decriminalized everywhere. Nations and states should “not introduce new barriers and should remove existing barriers [to abortion] … including barriers caused as a result of the exercise of conscientious objection by individual medical providers,” it said, Crux Now reported Thursday.
The committee that put forward the draft is headed by former Chilean President Michelle Bachelet, according to Crux. Aborting an unborn baby was illegal in Chile until August 2017 when the nation’s lawmakers ruled to decriminalize abortion in the cases of rape, fatal fetal abnormalities and when the mother’s life is in danger. (RELATED: 40,000 Chileans Take To The Streets To Demand Expansion Of Abortion Access)
Young people should have access to contraception as well as guaranteed access to post-abortion health care “in all circumstances, and on a confidential basis,” the draft also said, Crux reported. Stigma against abortion should also be discouraged, the draft noted.
The U.N. Human Rights Committee successfully ordered the Irish government to pay Siobhan Whelan roughly $34,000 and provide her with psychological treatment in November 2017 to compensate for Whelan’s travel expenses in order to obtain an abortion. Whelan had traveled from Ireland, where abortion was illegal at the time, to the U.K. for the procedure. Whelan was the second woman compensated post-abortion on orders from the UN.
A Harvard professor and human rights in international law specialist, Mary Ann Glendon, pushed back against the draft’s proposals. “First of all, the UN Human Rights Committee has no power to create human rights,” said Glendon, according to Crux.
The committee’s assertion that abortion is a “fundamental human right, and its preposterous claim that abortion rights are derived from the right to life … show how susceptible UN bodies are to lobbying by interest groups that would like to see their agenda items recognized as universal rights,” Glendon added.
The drafted copy also addressed physician-assisted suicide, directing medical professionals to “facilitate the termination of life of afflicted adults, such as those who are terminally ill, who experience severe physical or mental pain and suffering and who wish to die with dignity.”
The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) announced in early October that it no longer opposes physician-assisted suicide, instead taking a neutral position on the matter. The Massachusetts Medical Society (MMS) also voted to repeal its policy regarding assisted suicide and euthanasia in December, moving from its well-established opposition to “neutral engagement” on the practice.
California, Colorado, Oregon, Vermont, Hawaii, Montana and Washington permit physician-assisted suicide.
For the love of creatures big and small, WHY do we allow the UN to still have their HQ in the United States! GET THEM OUT TRUMP!
Israel and Poland the Latest Countries to Reject the UN Globalist Migration Compact
Several European countries have already announced they will not sign on to the United Nations Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration.
They fear the agreement will take away their sovereign right to control their own borders.
Poland, Estonia, Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary, Croatian and Bulgaria will not agree to the globalist insanity.
And on Tuesday Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced Israel will not accede to or sign this dangerous Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration.
PM Netanyahu made the announcement on Twitter.
"The word "rights" appears in almost every sentence of the 1869-word UN document."
Desires are often confused with rights. When every desire becomes a "right", it will ultimately lead to a society's destruction.
A world government is another utopian fantasy that will end like all utopian fantasies, in disaster.
Why do we continue to allow the UN, which is anti-American,and, anti-freedom, to stay in our country? We really must boot them out!
UN’s Solution to Climate Change: End Capitalism
What will it take to keep the planet habitable?
According to some eco-warriors, all that’s necessary is to end capitalism—the one economic system that has lifted billions from poverty and suffering.
The latest United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report led Eric Holthaus, a Grist writer, to tweet enthusiastically, “The world’s top scientists just gave rigorous backing to systematically dismantle capitalism as a key requirement to maintaining civilization and a habitable planet.”
The sentiment is not new. Three years ago, while pushing for the Paris Climate Accord, U.N. climate official Christiana Figueres described the strategy this way:
“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution.”
To accomplish such a feat, the new report proposes an energy tax of epic proportions. It claims that, to keep warming in check, by 2030 we’ll need to impose a tax of between $135 and $5,500 on every ton of carbon emitted.
And that’s just for starters. By the end of the century, the authors say, we’ll have to jack the tax up to as much as $27,000 per ton.
How would that play out in the real world, where conventional carbon-emitting fuels currently generate about 80 percent of all energy consumed? Carbon taxes of the magnitude suggested in the report would bankrupt families and businesses and trigger a global economic disaster.
We really need to get out of the UN!

Yes, the United Nations is hiring "disarmament officers" in New York. The question is "why"?
Posted by Leah Anaya | Jan 3, 2020 | Must Reads, News, Investigations, Law and Legal, Featured, Patrol
NEW YORK – When the editor of Law Enforcement Today sent me a story to look into this morning, I laughed. There’s no way this is real, I thought. It must be some crazy conspiracy theory.
After extensive research, I’m not laughing anymore.
The United Nations has legitimately posted a job opportunity for English-speaking DISARMAMENT, DEMOBILIZATION, AND REINTEGRATION (DDR) OFFICERS.
Right now I think this focus is on Virginia. The citizens there strongly oppose the Dem Gov’s current gun grab. It’s only a matter of time before other states follow, and outrage its citizens. This issue certainly bears watching.
