September 20, 2017 by


By Fred Lucas ~ In his first address to the United Nations General Assembly, President Donald Trump delivered remarks in many ways unlike those previous U.S. presidents have delivered before the world body.

The U.N. At Work

November 11, 2015 by


By Herbert London ~ The General Assembly at the United Nations met today. What emerged from the meeting is thunderous silence, a silence that echoes through the conscience of sensible people.

A Useless Obama Addresses The Useless United Nations

September 25, 2013 by


By Alan Caruba ~ I don’t know who looked more pathetic when President Obama addressed the United Nations Assembly on Tuesday; him or the assembled ambassadors, many from nations where human rights, justice, and liberty don’t exist. Like the League of Nations before it, the United Nations has long since demonstrated how useless it is. […]

President Cliche

September 23, 2011 by


By Alan Caruba “Peace is more than just the absence of war.” “So let there be no doubt…” “We stand at a crossroads of history.” “There is no excuse for inaction.” Fewer people at home and around the world are paying any attention when Barack Obama speaks. He has become President Cliché. We were all […]

September 25, 2010 by


By Dr. Laina Farhat-Holzman The UN’s opening session is September 21 this year and Iran’s president Ahmadinejad entertained us again at the opening.

Is Ahmadinejad Looking For A Fight Or Running

September 23, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba The only thing we know for sure about Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran, is that he lies about everything. In that regard, he may not be that much different from other world leaders for whom lying is almost a requirement for the job. Only international law keeps the United States from […]

A Gutless Disgrace

October 2, 2009 by


By Tom McLaughlin from Family Security Matters Recent consternation about incivility in politics is lost on me. I’m thinking our politicians are much too polite.

Vice President Aaron Burr shot former Treasury Secretary Alexander […]

According to Claudia Rosett, writing at Forbes: The U.N.’s Year Of Libya“It’s hard to think how anyone could be a worse choice than this year’s president, the anti-American, radical leftist retread Sandinista, Nicaragua’s Miguel d’Escoto Brockman, who opened last year’s General Assembly by denouncing the U.S.But the U.N. has found a way.
