U.N. Circus

Pages: 1 2

First, the Obama administration erred when it decided to join the dysfunctional Human Rights Council last year, thereby legitimizing it. Nothing changed as a result of our participation. One-sided condemnations of Israel continued to pour out of the council while the world’s true human rights abusers were let off the hook. The council also continued its regular practice of passing resolutions declaring “defamation of religions” (specifically Islam) to be a violation of international law.

Second, the Obama State Department embarrassed the United States when it submitted a self-critical report to the council that highlighted the Arizona anti-illegal immigration law and alleged discrimination against Muslim Americans. In fact, the Obama administration went out of its way while preparing the report to consult, in its own words, “with Muslims, Native Americans, African Americans and other minority groups, to assess the extent of domestic rights violations.”

In the Obama administration’s report to the UN Human Rights Council, it threw the state of Arizona under the bus.  It bragged about hauling Arizona into court for simply trying to help the federal government enforce the country’s immigration laws:

A recent Arizona law, S.B. 1070, has generated significant attention and debate at home and around the world. The issue is being addressed in a court action that argues that the federal government has the authority to set and enforce immigration law. That action  is ongoing; parts of the law are currently enjoined.

Referring to the Arizona law during the course of the UN Human Rights Council’s November 5th hearing, the U.S. representative said that the U.S. will continue to oppose the Arizona anti-illegal immigration law. The U.S. representative also criticized the United States for its past “problematic” criminal justice record.

Concerning alleged Islamophobia in the United States, the Obama administration’s report to the UN Human Rights Council assured the council that it had consulted the “victims” of alleged anti-Muslim discrimination in America:

At our UPR consultations, including the meeting in Detroit, Michigan, Muslim, Arab-American, and South Asian citizens shared their experiences of intolerance and pressed for additional efforts to challenge misperceptions and discriminatory stereotypes, to prevent acts of vandalism, and to combat hate crimes.

The Obama administration’s consultations included discussions with Dawud Walid, the executive director of the Michigan chapter of the Council American Islamic Relations. Walid believes in the supremacy of Sharia law in the event of a conflict with the laws of the United States, where he has chosen to live. He is quoted as saying: “We should obey the laws of the United States of America, except when those laws bar us from those things that are obligations [of] our religion.”

In a trip abroad this year to Mali that was organized by Michigan State University but funded by the federal government, Walid delivered a message which, in his own words, “stated that Muslims in America have many challenges from Islamophobia to unjust government policies that profile us.”

Walid has also been reported to have participated in illegal alien demonstrations against immigration enforcement.

Yet this radical Islamist is one of the folks with whom the Obama administration chose to consult in doing “research” for its report to the UN Human Rights Council.

In short, the Obama administration has once again shown its willingness to engage in a humiliating mea culpa for the alleged sins of the United States in order to court favorable world opinion.

We have a president who does not believe in American exceptionalism. Obama believes the United States has historically been too powerful for its own good and bears guilt for its racist past. Don’t forget that this is the same man who, back in 2001, criticized our Founding Fathers for “shackling” the government with “negative liberties” —  placing limitations on governmental power — rather than specifying what the government “must do” for its citizens by means of redistributive policies.

Thus, Obama’s philosophy is not that far apart in some ways from various of our country’s severest critics. It is no wonder that he is willing to submit the United States’ human rights record to their judgment.

Joseph A. Klein is the author of a new book entitled Lethal Engagement: Barack Hussein Obama, the United Nations and Radical Islam.

    I know how tedious it has become, but we've got to keep saying it;
    USA, Canada, Western Europe and all democratic countries – out of this nest of ninth century vipers. Without our funding, it will collapse in 20 minutes, an outcome most beneficial to all of mankind.
    Step #2; Found a UDN – United Democratic Nations.
    We've permitted the tail to wag the dog for far too long.

      That's a great idea, not perfect, no human institution ever will be, but it would be far better than the un. As far as I'm concerned, the un charter became null and void as soon as we discovered the person supposedly representing the USA in drawing it up was a soviet agent.

  • tara

    When you point a finger at someone else, you are pointing four fingers back to yourself. That applies very well here, doesn't it?

    • Rifleman


    • ajnn

      yes – the one finger pointed at the US is an act that points four back at these oppressive dictatorships.

      good point.

    • HOOAH

      Your "high and mighty" statement is assanine. It's ok to point the finger and criticise those who are oppressing others…AS LONG AS YOU ARE NOT AN OPPRESSOR AS WELL. And despite what Pres Huessien Obama and his nutty friends think America does not oppress others.
      I'm pointing my fingers at Islam using both hands. What do you think of that???

    • suprkufrB

      Not unless you happen to have been born with a thumb and five fingers.
      Simple addition is obviously not your strong suit.

  • Cuban Refugee

    Why should this be surprising, or even incongruous? Do you not remember that the circus-master-in-chief sold out our sovereignty to Interpol and the U.N.? As members of the New World Order, we must live under the big tent with the bloodthirsty animals from the third world — the same red-eyed clowns who want to bring us down and make us suffer for the success of capitalism, and who keep coming out of the tiny Volkswagen in the center ring in ever-increasing numbers. The United States and the Free World are tethered to a revolving circle of fire while the protagonists for Lucifer throw sharp knives, and the audience, at the edge of their seats with excitement at the prospect of our imminent death, vigorously claps in sadistic unison.

    Screw the UN. When Libya and the UN have the "right" to attack us in public, it's a simple matter of the pot calling the kettle black.

    Get the UN out of the US, and the US out of the UN. What should we expect out of an organization whose organizing General Secretary was Alger Hiss?

    What we're being told over and over in a variety of ways is that there is not enough money to save the world. The financial stranglehold is increasing its grip step by step. And as long as the mass-murderer financial kings control the money, tens of thousands die needlessly every day. And these are the people promising to us, through our leaders, a better way? Rubbish! And you know, most of these men claim to serve Christ. If this is so, why do they not honor his words? "And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be manifest, that they are wrought in God." Jn.3:19-21.

    Fact: the global financial crisis could go away in a single day! Infrastructure could be restored providing everyone a job. The poor could be provided healthcare, food and a home. And after the poorest classes are stabilized, the restructuring of monetary disbursement, in accordance with talent and productivity, could provide a simple equality between all people whereby none are left to perish as if their fate was somehow deserved.

    But this is not the agenda of the New World Order (and there's nothing new about it: its the same old covert murder, lying and theft of all that is noble). This nation needs to prosecute the liars who betray our trust: those who despise the Constitution by their freedom-crippling legislation. If we did, most of our government, judges, lawyers, news and business leaders would be in jail: from the White House to Wall Street: from Fox to MSNBC. Then maybe some men of integrity could fill the void and some real tangible reformation could come to this land, giving the TRUE meaning to: "Yes we can!"

      Where is ““The poor could be provided healthcare, food and a home. And after the poorest classes are stabilized, the restructuring of monetary disbursement, in accordance with talent and productivity,” in the Constitution? Were you talking of yourself when you wrote, “Those who despise the Constitution by their freedom-crippling legislation.”?

      Where does the Bible say it’s okay to take the property of one to give to another, to steal, for any reason?

        I'm sorry you didn't understand the objective of my post. Let me clarify. I don't know your experience with Bible prophecy, history or the schemes of men behind closed doors, and I won't judge. But here's my understanding in a nutshell with two very important points.

        1. Half of Jesus Christ's ministry was healing the sick, free of charge. The Bible says that He often stayed up all night and "healed them all." To deny this work is fundamentally evil because the 6th Commandment is clear: to neglect to save life is to kill. None who left Jesus Christ could say they were neglected, for healing or for truth.

        2. In the book of Daniel, chapters 2 & 7, (from Daniel to the end of time), four kingdoms are listed to have the lions share of authority in relation to God's people: Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece and lastly, Rome (pagan & papal). There is no fifth kingdom to rule the Earth to the end of time. And the prophecy closes by stating that when Christ comes He will smash to smithereens the religion of popes whose arrogance has removed two of GOD'S Ten Commandments: the 2nd and the 4th, and substituted himself in Christ's place as both Creator and Redeemer (Read the Catholic Catachism: the 2nd removed entirely and the 10th divided into two to keep the same number).

        Rifleman, America has been the servant of Rome since the European banks under Vatican control inaugurated the Federal Reserve, thus removing America's Constitutional right to print our own money. We have been unable to print our own money for nearly a century, and Americans have paid interest to a lender who takes but gives nothing! And these are the same guys who have schemed the NWO and financed every war and revolution of modern times because banks always come out on top after a war. I've connected the dots of history, current events and Bible prophecy. And I am so grateful to read and believe the words, "Let God be true, but every man a liar." Rom.3:4.

        In closing, the words I pray give you strength and courage are these, "Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus." "Be angry, and sin not," "that no man take thy crown." Rev.14:12;Eph.4:26;Rev.3:11.

        • Rifleman

          I think I do understand the objective of your post Mr. McAleer, I was just pointing out a few important contradictions in it.

          It's one thing to feed, house, clothe, and heal people, it's another to compel others to, or plunder their property to do so. That violates the Eighth Commandment against stealing.

          It also seems (hence the initial question) the freedom of property and its' disposal however its' owners conscience dictates, and equality before the law that our Constitution was created and ratified to protect, are not the freedom and equality of which you write.

          • http://www.LifesHaven.net GaryMcAleer

            Understood bro. I'll never claim infallibility or complete wisdom in my understanding, as some we know. I'm just grateful to see some rudiments that could alleviate so much suffering in our world.

    Those who are enamoured by a one world government should be aware that Western democracies are already outnumbered by the many Islamic countries and every time a "break away Province" demands and gets autonomy it is accepted by the UN as a new country with it's own UN representative and vote. Since the Brits ceded control of India Muslims have slowly chipped away parts of India and now have UN votes as Afghanastan, Pakistan, Bangladesh (Once called East Pakistan) and are claiming and will soon be given, by the UN, control Kashmier. Same with Yugoslavia. They have already gained Un votes for some of Yugoslavia's states and ,if present trends continue, will soon have separate Un votes for Montenegro, and the other Yugoslavian states. It was bad enough when the USSR had separate votes for all it's states, but the Muslims are workign that scheme for all it's worth. The immediate result of a one world UN governemnt will be that the Muslims will be able to to outvote the nonMuslim states and impose sharia law universally. It's time to call ahalt to this scheme to dominate the world. Actually we would be better off if we got the Un our ot the US and the US out of the UN.

    Commedian Dave Gardner once said, " A man will go out into the wilderness and carve out an empire for the lady of his choice, but were she lenient with her affections, he would say 'Get it. Let Willy build it." The same is true of everything else that is given to people regardless of whether they make and efford to contribute to the system. Our first experiment with Socialism was the Mayflower Compact. "which read, "To each accroding to his need and from each according to his ability." After one year of near starvation, as everyone laid around to let willy do it, it was replaced with, "If you don't work, you don't eat." The latter policy has been the cause of the fabulous success of our capitalist system.

    The UN loves to observe the misery and death they supervise. Give them some credit for helping to fatten up the victims. When the UN shows up at your door to "help", it's time to run.

    • weRscrewed

      Well put! lololol

      Too bad it's so TRUE.


    Who cares what these obsequious myrmidons do. The UN is a mockery of wisdom and reason.

    I sure hope we get some leadership vs appeasers soon. We shouldn't give one red frick'n dime to the UN… kick their dead beat asses out of our country.
