Pence calls on U.N. Security
Council to end bias against Israel

Washington Times, by Dave Boyer

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 9/20/2017 1:03:26 PM

Vice President Mike Pence called on the United Nations to end its “forum for anti-Semitism” against Israel and to boot repressive countries off the U.N. Human Rights Council. In a meeting of the U.N. Security Council, Mr. Pence noted that former President John F. Kennedy had warned the world body 50 years ago not to become a “forum for invective.” “Yet today, its Human Rights Council has become exactly that — a forum for anti-Semitism and invective against Israel,” Mr. Pence said. “We call on the Security Council and this entire body to immediately reform the membership and practices of the Human Rights Council —

Comments:
Now, this is a 0ne-two punch at the UN Human Rights Council. President Trump made it clear yesterday in his dynamic speech that they were so set that practically all resolutions never-ever favored Israel. In fact, they were in condemnation. As Pence says here, that has to stop. As a friend of Israel, I would stop my "contributions" to the UN a show of unity with them. Oh, we are the biggest source of money. Well, who has the "power" not for change, Mr. President? BTW, just saw FLOTUS (Melania) give a thoughtful speech at UN for women rights and protection.

It´s about dang time that somebody spoke up about this! It seems to take forever sometimes to address some of the most basic, yet serious issues. Still waiting for Trump to pull out of the illegal agreement 0bama made with Iran. The longer he waits, the more Iran ´fine tune´ its ability to nuke us. Must we be nuked first?

Trump tells Turkey’s leader:
US to stop arming Syrian Kurds
Associated Press, by Suzan Fraser, Josh Lederman*    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 11/24/2017 7:15:58     Post Reply
Ankara, Turkey - The United States will cut off its supply of arms to Kurdish fighters in Syria, President Donald Trump told the Turkish president on Friday, in a move sure to please Turkey but further alienate Syrian Kurds who bore much of the fight against the Islamic State group. In a phone call with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Trump said he’d “given clear instructions” that the Kurds will receive no more weapons — “and that this nonsense should have ended a long time ago,” said Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu. The White House confirmed the move in a cryptic statement about the phone call that said Trump

Drones becoming a threat

Drones are putting lives at risk, say first responders. There are some limited rules that govern where hobbyist drones can fly, but firefighters and local law enforcement officers tell Fox News the requirements don’t go far enough because they are unenforceable in the middle of real-time operations. They say negligent operators cannot be discerned from criminals and potential terrorists, giving those with malicious motives an upper hand against those responsible for protecting the public. This month, the Department of Homeland Security released an updated terrorism advisory bulletin stating that terrorists are pursuing the use of

Saudi crown prince escalates
Iranian war of words calling
supreme leader ‘the new Hitler’
Independent [UK], by Bethan McKernan    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 11/24/2017 2:14:10     Post Reply
Beirut - Saudi Arabia’s powerful new crown prince has called Iran’s religious supreme leader “the new Hitler of the Middle East”, a remark which has further inflamed relations between the two regional powers. Mohammed bin Salman, who was appointed heir to the throne by his father King Salman in June, made the comment in a rare interview with the New York Times on Thursday. Iran responded furiously to the remarks on Friday, accusing the prince of “following the path of regional dictators” and advising the young leader to “think about their fate”. 32-year-old Prince bin Salman is widely seen as the face of the modern kingdom.

Ten congressional Democrats

Palestinian terrorist leaders often use teenagers to commit acts of terror because they know the Israeli legal system treats children more leniently than adults. Now 10 Democrats belonging to the Congressional Progressive Caucus are trying to give terrorist leaders yet another reason for using young people to murder even more innocent civilians. Rep. Betty McCollum, D-Minn., introduced legislation Nov. 14 – co-sponsored by nine other Democrats – calling on the State Department to “prevent United States tax dollars from supporting the Israeli military’s ongoing detention and mistreatment of Palestinian children.”

Washington - President Donald Trump told his Turkish counterpart that the United States will stop supplying arms to Syrian Kurdish fighters, according to officials in Turkey. The Turkish government considers the group, known as the YPG, terrorists but the US has been openly arming them in the fight against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil). (Snip) Mevlut Cavusoglu, the Turkish Foreign Minister who was in Mr Erdogan's office during the call, told a press conference in Ankara: "Mr Trump clearly stated that he had given clear instructions and that the YPG won't be given arms, and that this nonsense should have ended a long time

Oscar Pistorius murder sentence
more than doubled after appeal

Double-amputee Olympian Oscar Pistorius´ sentence was extended to 13 years and five months by a court Friday for the murder of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. South Africa´s Supreme Court of Appeal increased the sprinter´s prison term after prosecutors successfully argued his original sentence of six years was "shockingly lenient.” The so-called "Blade Runner" was not in court for Friday´s ruling where the court handed down the minimum 15-year sentence prescribed for murder in South Africa, and subtracted the time Pistorius had already served in prison. Pistorius, 30, fired a gun multiple times through a closed bathroom

A retired lieutenant general said Thursday that President Trump’s comments to troops deployed overseas, which included remarks about the economy and military’s recent success, were “somewhat insulting.” “First of all, I’m thankful for the fact that he did address the soldiers. But the message I heard and some of the things he said would not have rung very well with me had I been a deployed soldier,” CNN military analyst and retired Lt. Gen. Mark Hertling said. Trump spoke from his Mar-a-Lago estate to troops deployed overseas via video teleconference. During the call, the president praised the military’s recent performance,

ESPN lost 2 million subscribers last fiscal year, underscoring the challenge owner Walt Disney Co. faces attracting young people who don’t pay for cable. The network, one of the most watched on the cable dial, had 88 million U.S. subscribers at the end of September, including people paying for online versions, Disney said in its annual report Wednesday. That’s down from a peak of 100 million in 2010 and marks the lowest total since 2003. To ensure the long-term future of one of its most profitable businesses, Disney Chief Executive Officer Bob Iger is negotiating to include ESPN in new digital forms

Washington - Lawyers for Michael T. Flynn, President Trump’s former national security adviser, notified the president’s legal team in recent days that they could no longer discuss the special counsel’s investigation, according to four people involved in the case, an indication that Mr. Flynn is cooperating with prosecutors or negotiating a deal. Mr. Flynn’s lawyers had been sharing information with Mr. Trump’s lawyers about the investigation by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, who is examining whether anyone around Mr. Trump was involved in Russian efforts to undermine Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Thursday clarified that his walking boot is on his right foot, adding that he switched it to his left to "give it a break." McCain caused confusion when he posted a photo from his daughter Meghan´s wedding in which his walking boot was on his left foot. He had previously been seen wearing it on his right foot after he suffered a minor tear in his right Achilles tendon. McCain took notice of the fallout, and on Thursday took to Twitter to clarify.

He wrote that he “feels terribly that I’ve made some women feel badly.” He called himself “a warm person” who likes to hug people when they’re being photographed with him, but clearly, his embrace “crossed a line for some women.” Although his statement did not directly address the question of whether he might resign, he vowed

WASHINGTON — Of all the State Department employees who might have been vulnerable in the staff reductions that Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson has initiated as he reshapes the department, the one person who seemed least likely to be a target was the chief of security, Bill A. Miller. Republicans pilloried Hillary Clinton for what they claimed was her inadequate attention to security as secretary of state in the months before the deadly 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya. Congress even passed legislation mandating that the department’s top security official have unrestricted access to the secretary of state. But in his first

For more than five hours, Attorney General Jeff Sessions sat in a hearing room on Capitol Hill this month, fending off inquiries on Washington’s two favorite topics: President Trump and Russia. But legislators spent little time asking Sessions about the dramatic and controversial changes in policy he has made since taking over the top law enforcement job in the United States nine months ago. From his crackdown on illegal immigration to his reversal of Obama administration policies on criminal justice and policing, Sessions is methodically reshaping the Justice Department to reflect his nationalist ideology and hard-line views — moves drawing comparatively

We have already reached the cornered animal stage of Democrats caught up in the sexual harassment hysteria. Is there anything more amusing than watching your enemies play a game of chicken with each other, threatening mutual assured destruction? Even better: a threat that comes written in all-caps, the cyber equivalent of shouting, hinting that “many members” could find themselves in a similarly difficult situation.

Recent pics of Malia Obama showed her kissing a tall, athletically-built white male who was most likely a fellow university student. It seems normal enough, right? She’s a young woman, he’s a young man – so what’s the problem? Well, apparently many in the Black community find what she did to be an appalling act of…racism. The onslaught of negativity directed at the daughter of the former President is both shocking and troubling. Why do so many choose to see the world through the narrow prism of color and then demand that color requires one to never deviate from their “rules”

True to the theme that he’s been nationally talking about – or rather, taking a knee for – since last summer, former 49er Colin Kaepernick attended an “Unthanksgiving Day” celebration on Alcatraz Island. The Indigenous Peoples Sunrise Ceremony, held annually on Thanksgiving since 1975, commemorates the survival of Native American peoples following the settlement of Europeans in the Western Hemisphere. Kaepernick began making headlines in August when a photographer spotting him sitting during the national anthem. He told reporters that he sat, or took a knee, because he was fighting to combat the oppression of people of color and ongoing issues

The ever-widening use of artificial lights is making the nighttime Earth glow increasingly brighter, with the amount of global light growing about 2 percent each year. That worries advocates for the protection of dark skies, who say that artificial night glow can affect wildlife like migrating birds and keeps people from connecting to the stars. What´s more, they say, all that wasted light sent out into space is effectively wasted money. The findings are in a new study in the journal Science Advances that used five years of data from a satellite launched in 2011. This satellite has an instrument that gives

At age 10, Levi Draheim hates math and loves reading Harry Potter books. He plays the violin but dislikes practicing. What he really enjoys is paddling a kayak or going swimming. It helps that he lives just a five-minute walk from the beach in the town of Indialantic on Florida´s east coast. "I´m the kind of kid who likes to be outside," he said. He´s also one of 21 children across America who are suing the federal government for its failure to combat climate change.
