nationalism, xenophobia, climate change
for 2018

BizPac Review, by Luis Miguel

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/2/2018 5:50:23 PM

Does the UN do anything besides insult America? In his New Year proclamation Sunday, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres called on the nations of the world to join together in fighting nationalism, xenophobia, and climate change. (Video) Guterres stressed urgency for his message by designating it a “red alert.” “On New Year’s Day 2018, I am not issuing an appeal,” he said. “I am issuing an alert—a red alert for our world.” Guterres recalled his appeal that 2017 be a year of peace. He remarked that “in fundamental ways, the world has gone in reverse.” The UN chief maintained, “we

What´s wrong with nationalism, xenophobia, or not believing in fairy tales of global warming? Nations are made up of people with a common heritage, culture and values. We have little in common with other cultures, especially those that glorify murder, slavery and forcible conversion to their beliefs.

To fear and distrust those from other lands is only common sense, if their philosophy is to murder or convert you. We believe in peace and Live and Let Live, but they do not.

The Secretary-General is defending the UN´s gravy train. The UN gets plenty of money in the name of climate change. Nationalism also means less money for the UN because nationalists will spend more money on themselves.

Guterres?? Guterres...isn´t that an odd name for a Muslim??

Let´s see...nationalism, don´t Muslims believe it is their duty to emmigrate to non-Muslim countries, breed more children, then force conversion on the native population? Don´t Muslims believe they owe allegiance to their religion, regardless of any "artificial" national boundaries or the "secular" government already there?

xenophobia, would that mean every person, of any ethnicity, creed or belief system who does NOT want to be forced--at the end of a gun--to become Muslim or die?

climate change, hasn´t that been pretty much exposed as little more than a cudgel to try to take money from "rich" countries to line the pockets of corrupt politicians in poor countries?

Nearly a year before Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired senior FBI official Andrew McCabe for what Sessions called a "lack of candor," McCabe oversaw a federal criminal investigation into whether Sessions lacked candor when testifying before Congress about contacts with Russian operatives, sources familiar with the matter told ABC News. Democratic lawmakers have repeatedly accused Sessions of misleading them in congressional testimony and called on federal authorities to investigate, but McCabe´s previously-unreported decision to actually put the attorney general in the crosshairs of an FBI probe was an exceptional move. One source told ABC News that Sessions was not aware

Based on the latest U.S. Census Bureau statistics from July 2016 to July 2017, Californians are leaving the state in droves. As Jed Kolko, chief economist with employment website Indeed.com, pointed out regarding the data, "The rate at which California has been losing people to other states has accelerated in the past couple of years, in part because of rising housing costs … more people moved out of California to other states than moved in from other states. In other words, California lost people due to domestic migration."There are apparently three prime destinations for the migrating Californians: Texas, Arizona, and

On Wednesday, Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski was repeatedly struck speechless with adoration during an interview with former CIA Director John Brennan. Brennan had scored points with Brzezinski and her compatriots in the past with his verbose tweets attacking the President, some of which Brzezinski had displayed on screen for viewers to appreciate during the interview. Upon encountering Brennan in person, her fondness turned to reverence as he consistently told her everything she wanted to hear. Naturally, President Trump was the primary topic the conversation, and Brennan spent the majority of the interview making vague but dire assertions about the

The footage shows the man working on the top left corner of the bridge as cars passed beneath it. When it suddenly collapsed, the man was thrown into the air then fell again to lie among the rubble. It is not clear if the man is Navarro Brown, a 37-year-old employee of Structural Technologies VSL, who

President Trump and his chief of staff John Kelly are furious that details of the president´s national security briefing materials telling him not to congratulate Russian President Vladimir Putin were leaked to the press, according to a CNN report Wednesday. Trump was reportedly “fuming” on Tuesday night after The Washington Post reported that Trump’s national security advisers specifically instructed him not to congratulate Putin on his electoral victory. The Post reported that the materials read "DO NOT CONGRATULATE." Only a small group of staffers would have access to those briefing materials and would have known what his advisers would suggest

The Austin Police Department told Business Insider it would not confirm an identity until more ID checks had been completed and family had been informed.

The late-season strike is the fourth nor-easter to clobber the city in the last three weeks — and led Mayor de Blasio to shut down schools for the day.“Everyone is tired of it,” said AccuWeather senior meteorologist Dave Samuhel, noting the recent spats of snowfall and below average temperatures.“It’s unfortunate really,” he

Officials in a Minneapolis school district are trying to figure out why black students are suspended three times more often than their white peers, according to a Sunday report. Black students have a 338 percent higher chance than white students to be suspended at Justice Page Middle School in Minneapolis, Minn., according to The New York Times. Black students make up 41 percent of the Minneapolis school district’s student body, but 76 percent of its suspensions. The black students constantly tell the principal, “The teacher only sees me,” Justice Page Principal Erin Rathke said. She responds, “Yes, that’s probably true.”

James Kallstrom is no joke. With nearly thirty years in the FBI, several of them as the Assistant Director, Kallstrom knows how the agency functions far more than most. So when he says there was a plot to protect Hillary Clinton from prosecution and to illegally influence the 2016 Election people should pay attention. Kallstrom goes on to call the entirety of the FBI investigation against Donald Trump completely phony. Maria Bartiromo’s own take appears very much to compliment Mr. Kallstrom’s assertions. The Deep State shenanigans run very deep and in 2016 are linked to the Obama White House. Barack Obama

President Trump says he didn´t collude with Russia in 2016, promising something to a foreign country in exchange for his installation as president. That seems increasingly likely to prove true. Where they do not spring from simple malignancy, critics’ arguments that Trump used Russian intervention to win the election are mostly an excuse to avoid the plain truth that Hillary Clinton deservedly lost because she was an awful candidate. And the country is better for that result. We aren’t persuaded, either, that the Russians’ paltry $100,000 in Facebook spending had anything to do with Trump’s win, given that very little of it

Discussing cities is like talking about the knots in a net: they’re crucial, but they’re only one part of the larger story of the net and what it’s supposed to do. It makes little sense to talk about knots in isolation when it’s the net that matters. Cities are part of the system we’ve invented to keep people alive on Earth. People tend to like cities, and have been congregating in them ever since the invention of agriculture, 10,000 or so years ago. That’s why we call it civilisation. This origin story underlines how agriculture made cities possible, by providing
