4 Takeaways From Biden’s First UN Speech

September 22, 2021 by


By Fred Lucas ~ An embattled President Joe Biden arrived Tuesday for his first address to the United Nations General Assembly with the recent rebuke of allies for his botched exit from Afghanistan, a security crisis at the southern U.S. border, and his domestic agenda in stalemate largely because of his own party’s infighting. In […]

Climate Change – United Nations IPCC Is More Sure About Less

September 28, 2013 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ On the IPCC report… A significant mistake may have been made. Doug Keenan writes to the Met Office Chief Scientist about this problem: Dear Julia, The IPCC’s AR5 WGI Summary for Policymakers includes the following statement. The globally averaged combined land and ocean surface temperature data as calculated by a linear […]

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. […]

Global Yawning

June 21, 2013 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Tony Thomas says people no longer seemed fussed by warnings that the planet’s very survival is threatened by our gasses and humans could be wiped out: What fun! I have just voted in a global poll being conducted by the United Nations to discover what the people of the world care […]

Gambling With the Nation’s Future

November 30, 2012 by


The Patriot Post ~ “No government, any more than an individual, will long be respected without being truly respectable.” –James Madison Good news, America: Those who believe that our nation has “barbarians at the gates” are dead wrong. The bad news: The barbarians are already well inside the gates, running the federal government. The Barbarian-in-Chief […]

How Wisconsin and Alabama Just Helped Save the World

June 11, 2012 by


By James Delingpole ~ From my poolside in Puglia I was going to do you an amusing post about The Archers. I expect it would have been very funny. But sadly we shall never know. That’s because I want instead to draw your attention to two important stories from the US which, I suspect, will […]

Obama’s Secret War-making for the U.N.

March 26, 2012 by


By Cliff Kincaid ~ You may not have heard of PSD-10 because it has received no significant coverage from the major media. Yet, President Obama issued “Presidential Study Directive 10” last August 4, 2011, and posted it on the White House website. It amounts to a new and potentially far-reaching exercise of American military power […]

If I Were Dictator (Part 6)

June 22, 2011 by


By Marlin6 On 02/05/2008, I authored a post “Benevolent Dictators Make Good Government”. Examples are King David – Israel – (1010 BC –970 B.C.) in ancient times and General Douglas McArthur – Japan – (1945 –1947) in modern times. I started musing about what I would do if I were absolute dictator of the United […]

America’s Decline Follows a Familiar Pattern

June 20, 2011 by


By Alan Caruba History is a relentless process and one that does repeat itself. Empires emerge, hold power, grow wealthy, and then find ways to commit suicide while new ones push them aside. I was thinking of this while listening to outgoing Secretary of Defense Robert Gates’ speech on NATO’s future. He virtually spelled out […]

Superman Goes All Obama

May 1, 2011 by


By Andrew Bolt Who does Superman think he is? Barack Obama? Superman is giving up his American citizenship in the latest issue of the comic book series. The 900th issue by DC comics has the superhero in Tehran standing in support of protesters demonstrating against their government. His action causes the Iranian government to believe […]

How Australia Shipped Off $599 Million To The United Nations’ Warmists

April 23, 2011 by


By Andrew Bolt Anthony Cox: (Climate Change Minister Greg) Combet boasts that ”Every dollar raised by the carbon price will be dedicated to supporting households with any price impacts, and supporting businesses through the transition to a clean energy economy.” This is impossible. Under the “Fast Start Finance” commitment from Cancun, which Combet announced, $599 […]

A World in Disarray

March 24, 2011 by


By Alan Caruba It almost makes one wistful for the Cold War when the world was neatly divided between the United States and its allies against what Ronald Reagan called “the evil empire”, the Soviet Union and its satellite nations. Trying to bring about a League of Nations after World War One virtually killed President […]

Libya – Scylla And Charybdis Redux

March 22, 2011 by


The modern day reference for this old saying, Scylla and Charybdis, is that you are caught between a rock and a hard place, but I prefer to use the original term from Greek Mythology: Odysseus had to pass through the narrow Straits of Messina between Sicily and Calabria. There were two monsters guarding the Straits. […]

Give the Peace Prize Back, Barack

March 18, 2011 by


By Alan Caruba As the Middle East begets one insurrection after another against the oppression that has been endemic to the region for centuries and as Japan faces the worst nuclear energy disaster since Chernobyl, the President of America and Commander-in-Chief is Absent Without a Leave (AWOL). Barack Hussein Obama is the first President of […]

Just Answer The Question, Prime Minister

March 4, 2011 by


By Andrew Bolt I have included this short Post from Andrew to show a small excerpt from the Australian Government Parliamentary sittings. At the start of each sitting day, one hour is set aside for Question Time, when elected Members of Parliament can ask questions of Government Ministers. This question is from Julie Bishop, the […]

How Many Billions Of This “Carbon Tax” Will Be Hived Off By The UN?

March 3, 2011 by


By Andrew Bolt An excellent question from Deputy Opposition Leader Julie Bishop (no link): The Prime Minister today failed to answer a question about the proportion of her carbon tax revenue that will be set aside for the United Nations Green Climate Fund, as agreed by the Australian Government at the 2009 Copenhagen Climate Change […]

The Lebanese Tinderbox

February 18, 2011 by


By Alan Caruba Readers of the Old Testament know that Lebanon is mentioned in Deuteronomy, Judges and Joshua, Chronicles and Kings, in the Psalms, and the erotic poetry of the Song of Solomon. Today’s Lebanon was one of several new nations that followed World War One when the Versailles Treaty divided up the Middle East, […]

United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change

December 6, 2010 by


By Donald Douglas Watch this video from the Al Jazeera network very closely, and note especially how the term ‘Sea Ice’ is mentioned in relation to rising sea levels. Then, after reading this Post from Donald, take the link in the section I have added at the bottom of this Post…..TonyfromOz. In case you missed […]

Why Is the Obama Administration in Cancun?

December 4, 2010 by


By Brett Schaefer Last year at this time, the United Nations was coming to grips with the fact that the Copenhagen climate change summit would not produce a legally binding climate pact to succeed the failed Kyoto Protocol. In retrospect, nearly everyone acknowledges that the Copenhagen conference failed utterly to achieve its objectives. A year […]

Cancun Climate Change Conference: Less Hype, Same Obstacles

December 1, 2010 by


By Nicolas Loris International climate change talks kicked off on Monday in Cancun, Mexico, and the expectations aren’t nearly as high as they were last year at the summit in Copenhagen, where no country committed to any legal binding agreement. This year in Cancun, leaders from nearly 200 countries will come together at the 16th […]

Cancun Climate Conference – U.N. Proposes Rationing …..Everything!

November 30, 2010 by


Nearly three years ago now, I started contributing posts here on the subject of what would need to be done to comply with what was being asked in The Kyoto Protocol. This Kyoto Protocol called for a drastic cutback in the emissions of Carbon Dioxide, (CO2) and because the largest source of those emissions is […]

It’s the climate of opinion that has changed

November 30, 2010 by


By Andrew Bolt Tom Switzer on Mexico’s Copenhagen: For the next two weeks the world’s carboncrats will gather in Cancun for the latest United Nations climate conference. The aim is to negotiate a vast new international emissions trading scheme that Barack Obama wants the United States to join. But the delegates are in a state […]

Climate Change Is Still About Chinese Coal

November 29, 2010 by


By Derek Scissors Ph.D. The climate change conference starting in Cancun Monday is doomed to failure. Many factors contribute to this, such as a healthy skepticism about how much should be spent to remediate climate change, but one alone guarantees failure: Chinese coal production and policy. When climate change soared up the American agenda with […]
