Amina Mohammed, UN dep Sec-Gen
fingered in $300m timber scandal

Daily Post [Nigeria], by Chijioke Jannah

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 11/13/2017 4:33:26 AM

Nigeria’s former minister for environment and current United Nations deputy secretary general, Amina J. Mohammed has been identified as allegedly playing a major role in the clearance of over 10,000 containers of illegally harvested logs of Timber. The shipment is said to be worth $300 million. According to a documentary seen by DAILY POST, the Chinese government in 2016 stopped the importation of the containers. But in early 2017 over 4,000 permits were issued by the Nigerian government, thus prompting the Chinese government to release the illegally imported goods into China. The permits were allegedly signed by Mohammed, shortly before she accepted her new

She has built her record on being an environmental activist and protector, but Foreign Policy magazine has a lengthy article about this particular scam. Unfortunately, it is behind a paywall.

Eco-terrorists everywhere are hypocrites. They never practice what they preach, and congress is just as corrupt as the UN. No wonder all of them get rich...corruption everywhere.

Corruption will always be with us. That is why our Founding Fathers, in their wisdom, designed a system of LIMITED GOVERNMENT, dammit.

We don´t even need (and will never get) much better government.....just much less of it.

The UN is now almost exclusively a giant scam machine. The mechanisms have been taken over by entirely ethics-free and conscience-free third world grifters and converted to provide them with personal power, money and a way to permanently escape their 3rd world hellholes and "live large" on somebody else´s money.

We cannot abandon this dangerous organization safely, but we need to stop funding it and stop pretending that it has any legitimate purpose. It should be dismantled and destroyed in as safe a manner as we can manage, but never abandoned until the last bit of life is gone from it.

Growing up in Detroit, I was a huge hockey fan. After a long stretch of awful teams, the Red Wings got good, eventually leading to a string of Stanley Cup championships. It was a glorious time to be a Wings fan. In that time there were certain players who annoyed the hell out of me, all of whom played for other teams. Few bothered me more than Chris Chelios, defenseman for the Chicago Blackhawks. He didn’t bother me because he was a cheap-shot artist, he bothered me because he was good. All the players on other teams annoyed me because

It was a busy news week. The president was in Asia attempting to prevent both North Korea from going nuclear and a rigged trading system from destroying the American economy. Roy Moore was attempting to hang in there so he can turn Alabama blue and turn the Senate over to the Democrats. Congress was trying to pass a tax bill that will benefit big (but not small) business and repeal the mandate that undergirds health care for the old and the sick. With all of that going on, you might have missed the really important news. Here it is: In Bonn the

Bin Laden Docs Show Obama Misled,
Politicized Intelligence During 2012 Campaign
PJ Media, by Rick Moran    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 11/19/2017 4:40:57     Post Reply
"Bin Laden is dead and GM is alive" was a favorite mantra of the Obama campaign during the 2012 election. The implication was that al-Qaeda was "decimated," as President Obama said several times. But the recent release of documents taken from Osama bin Laden´s Abbottabad hideout shows that al-Qaeda, far from being "decimated," was, in fact, growing even stronger. The information was deliberately withheld from the American people by President Obama, who released just a few pages of documents in May of 2012, carefully selected to jibe with the administration´s narrative on al-Qaeda. The Weekly Standard: “The overall narrative that I think was being

College football is the greatest thing America has given the world other than jazz. And the game itself is as good as it´s ever been. Unfortunately, the College Football Playoff, now in its fourth year, is interfering with my childish — as opposed to manchildish — obsession with America´s greatest game. Every Wednesday I start asking my wife the same question. So where do you think Michigan will be in the AP next week if we beat so-and-so? What about the Coaches Poll? Then we have the same conversation again the next day and on game day and on the drive both

If the starry list of past clientele led Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein to expect four-star accommodations in the all-male sex-addict facility, Gentle Path at The Meadows, they must have been sorely disappointed. The dorm-style, two-person rooms are reminiscent of those found in a midlevel hotel, and electronics get surrendered at the door. Books and magazines — due to their potential to trigger sexual thoughts — are verboten as well. “There are no VIP rooms or special areas for famous people,” a source told The Post of the rehabilitation and treatment center, where Spacey is reportedly being treated for sex

Frank Abrams had no idea he was getting his hands on a valuable piece of history when he bought a grainy 19th-century photo for $10 at a North Carolina flea market. However, high-tech analysis of the group photo has revealed that it shows both Billy the Kid and his killer Pat Garrett, which could potentially mean that it is worth millions of dollars. “This is completely unknown, that Garrett and Billy are in a picture together,” Abrams, an attorney, told Fox News. “This is amazing, everybody is excited.”Abrams said that the tintype was in a set of photos that he purchased in

The spirit of the times has opened the floodgates of long-suppressed heartache. Victimized women are thus coming forward a decade or more after being abused by this political don or that show-biz celeb — who, in Al Franken’s case, could be the same guy. It is vital that we hear their stories. There should be no expectation, though, of a courtroom reckoning. While prosecution is practically impossible, that doesn’t absolve the culprits. Public office is a public trust, and weighing fitness for it is a matter of everyday discernment, not proof beyond a reasonable doubt. You know this when the

Once upon a time, Hillary Clinton thought the prospect of a presidential candidate declining to pledge to absolutely accept the sanctity of certified election results was "horrifying." She said so in a general election debate in order to attack Donald Trump -- who, at the time, was (recklessly) leaving the door open to challenge the outcome of an election most people expected him to lose. Chief among these people was Hillary Clinton. That´s why she excoriated his dodging and noncommittal answers on the question as dangerous to American democracy. (Snip for video)[Clinton] said she found “horrifying” the intimation he would

Gov. Chris Christie refrained from saying "I told you so" when he introduced Ivanka Trump at an appearance in Bayville earlier this week. But he had every right to, especially when it comes to the recent developments concerning his old rival Jeff Sessions. During the presidential campaign last year, the governor of New Jersey and the then-Senator from Alabama were among the first prominent Republicans to come out for Donald Trump. At one point in that campaign, Trump said Christie would make "a great attorney general" in the event he won the election. Trump went on to win, but Christie lost

With every debate on taxing and spending in Washington comes inevitable references to which states send more in taxes to the federal treasury than they receive in benefits for their citizens. The figures thrown around are sourced differently and vary widely, but the point of it all is for Democrats to point at poor, Republican states and call them hypocrites for doing exactly what Democrats say they should: taking money from richer places. But how much of it is true? An op-ed in The New York Times this week accuses Republicans of favoring red states over blues ones in their plans,

The Second Amendment is under siege now more than ever. Every day, we see more assaults made on our Constitutional rights to keep and bear arms. Radical gun-grabbing organizations like Moms Demand Action, Everytown for Gun Safety, and the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence are just a few of the national organizations that seek to take away law abiding citizens’ guns, and it’s not much better at the university level. There’s a Student Pledge Against Gun Violence and a campaign to “Keep Guns Off Campus.” In many cases, students cannot exercise their recognized rights just because they step foot on campus. These

A Steve Bannon–backed candidate turns out to have some serious baggage. Who could have seen that coming? Roy Moore is just the latest in a line of flawed candidates whom Bannon has zealously elevated, only to cry “Establishment!” when their flaws are laid bare. Moore, Paul Nehlen, Kelli Ward: All satisfy the thumb-in-their-eye wing of the conservative movement on the way to embarrassing defeats. Nehlen challenged House speaker Paul Ryan in the 2016 primary, but is quickly becoming a perennial candidate. “If a picture is worth a thousand words, a few of the words that describe this picture might be:

LaVar Ball, whose son was one of the three UCLA basketball players detained in China for shoplifting last week, said "who?" when asked about President Trump´s role in getting the players released. "Who?" Ball told ESPN when asked about Trump´s role. "What was he over there for? Don´t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out.” (Snip) Like I told him, 'They try to make a big deal out of nothing sometimes.' I'm from L.A.

While editing ‘Vanity Fair’ in the ’80s and ’90s, Daily Beast founder Tina Brown confided some of her best dish to her now published diary, including this gem about Jackie Kennedy. Thursday, July 6, 1989 Quogue- I love how New York changes so completely in the summer. It’s my favorite time of year here, sitting at my wooden desk before the open window with the cool sea breeze. The August issue arrived by FedEx. The Jackie O cover story, and Michael Milken’s rise and fall by Marie, is a much more commercial combo than July. To generate some summer heat I assigned Ed Klein to do Jackie to mark her sixtieth birthday. I asked him because he was always going on about how she liked him when he edited The New York Times Magazine.

Jeff Flake, a frequent sparring partner of President Donald Trump, continues to make enemies in his own party after calling the GOP “toast” while unaware he was still on a live mic.

In a textbook example of why Facebook users should pause for a moment of reflection before they post, a Democratic candidate for Ohio governor sought Friday to get ahead of any potential sex scandals by announcing the details of his relationships with 50 women. The sexcapade diary was in response to the Al Franken scandal, and included a hayloft romp with a "gorgeous blonde" and a fling with a "red head from Cleveland." “Now that the dogs of war are calling for the head of Senator Al Franken I believe it is time to speak up on behalf of all heterosexual males,”

Former Democratic Rep. Corrine Brown asked for leniency from a federal judge in Florida on Friday. She faces a lengthy prison term after being convicted of stealing thousands of dollars that were meant to go to charity. In May, a jury convicted Brown of 18 felony counts, including filing false tax returns, mail fraud, and working with others to run a fake non-profit group. Her conviction represents a major fall from political grace. Brown was one of the first black elected officials to be elected to federal office in Florida in 1992.

More than two dozen investigators have spent weeks scouring wine country trying to solve the mystery at the heart of the most destructive wildfires in California history: What caused the infernos that killed 43 people and destroyed more than 8,000 buildings? The answers will have wide-ranging ramifications for the region, which faces staggering losses and a challenging rebuilding effort. Losses from insured properties alone are expected to far exceed $1 billion, and the total bill for the fires will be still higher. Just fighting the fires cost $189 million, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. Cal Fire is

In the longstanding liberal narrative about Bill Clinton and his scandals, the one pushed by Clinton courtiers and ratified in media coverage of his post-presidency, our 42nd president was only guilty of being a horndog, his affairs were nobody’s business but his family’s, and oral sex with Monica Lewinsky was a small thing that should never have put his presidency in peril. That narrative could not survive the current wave of outrage over male sexual misconduct. So now a new one may be forming for the age of Harvey Weinstein and Donald Trump. In this story, Kenneth Starr and the

University of California regents meeting on Thursday admonished UC President Janet Napolitano for agreeing to a plan that led to interference in a state audit on the operation of her office. Her approval of a plan in which top aides would preview campus administrators’ confidential survey responses “reflected poor judgment and set in motion a course of conduct that the Board of Regents finds unacceptable,” board chairman George Kieffer said in a statement after the regents met behind closed doors for nearly five hours. But the regents quickly and unanimously agreed to support Napolitano’s continued leadership, Kieffer said after the
