United Nations Elects Dictators, Repressive Regimes to Rights Council

The United Nations General Assembly has again elected repressive dictatorships and authoritarian regimes to its human rights council, eliciting rebukes from rights groups.

Eighteen countries were selected on Wednesday to serve three-year terms on the council that begins in January. The Human Rights Foundation expressed concerns about several of the elected states, including Burundi, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Kyrgyzstan, Togo, the United Arab Emirates, and Venezuela.

“It is an outrage that the U.N. entrusted the world’s human rights protection to some of the worst dictatorships and authoritarian regimes,” said Thor Halvorssen, president of the foundation, in astatement. “A mere nine years after its foundation, the council today shows the same symptoms of hypocrisy and double standards displayed by the discredited Human Rights Commission that preceded it.”

Created in 2006, the council is “responsible for strengthening the promotion and protection of human rights around the globe and for addressing situations of human rights violations and making recommendations on them,” according to the U.N.

However, the foundation released a joint report with other rights groups that highlighted rampant abuses by the elected countries’ governments, including the repression of political opponents and civil society, censorship of independent media, and corruption in state institutions.

It is nice when small start up companies get off to a good start. Unfortunately for a country with no industry( destroyed by the EPA for China) the three top economic movers are now narcotics, porn and gambling. Weed is now on the commodities futures exchange. Just like the godfather movie where the Don walks into a grocery store and helps himself to the cash register and places his useless nephew on the struggling grocer's payroll. That is how I see our mafia government. 

Rule no. 1, only one term per termite. Rule no. 2, no politicians. Rule no. 3, the only lobby is in a hotel. Rule no. 4, fund raising should be illegal.
Back to the god father. He looks over the neighborhood and sees someone new is doing good. He cuts himself in for a piece. Before Microsoft ever got in to champaign contributions they stayed away from politics until they started to get visits from Clintons DOJ and EPA. Then they got the message.  Pay them off. All your troubles will go away. How can a convicted felon like Marc Rich get a pre packaged pardon put together by Eric bag Holder and presented to our president Clinton along with a golden saxophone?
The new kid on the block is Fan Duel and related companies. Right now the relationship is between Fan Duel and the consumer. The consumer picks his winning team and sends his money to Fan Duel. Fan Duel posts and pays the prize winners. A nice easy two way street.
The government run by politicians takes notice and now wants a cut under the pretext of looking out for the consumer.  The cut brings leech lawyers, accountants and lobbyists to bribe the politicians. Not to mention the tax flow that will create more of the same bail out money in the form of political grants to favorites. It is like granting a boon from medieval times.
That is why the smart money bribes both parties. It has noting to do with principle and everything to do with interest. No matter how much the government steals it never seems to be enough. With the first tranche of national debt on the way to 20 trillion buckaroos. I have to watch and listen to pocket liners tell us they worked out another eleventh hour dead line deal whose negotiations began an hour ago behind closed doors.
Look we worked past five and we voted ourselves a raise and insider traitoring benefits. If the OBAMA controlled IRS  sent the OBAMA controlled Lynch mob DOJ to pick up your cash to pay for Henry Waxman's congressional baseball hearing  of Roger Clemente which cost 7 million dollars. There would be blood shed. Especially when the only charge they could bring was that Roger stole second base.
The next knock on the door could be for a shrimp treadmill followed by a knock on the door for farts for the arts. How did we ever give these political fat cats control over the national pocketbook.
America needs a giant refund. We want our money back. Do you know how many private VA hospitals with no waiting we could build with the money we give to the UN refugee problem that the refugees never see?  I love the small farmers. They will save us when our enemies starve us. But I don't want to pay anyone not to grow corn. Chances are that small farmer never sees the don't grow corn money. The poltical farmer sews those crops.
America is out of time. We used to wait 4-6 years to get even with politicians that hurt us. We must do away with picking the lesser of two evils.
Just like in cards America needs a new deck. Look at the democrat/communist all white party platform. This is not an election. This is a coronation.
Look at the Rino party platform. Everybody has a case of Riance Prebus from which there is no cure. Riance books a debate on Nothing But Clintons. NBC.This guy can't get on the apprentice. He walks into the lion's den and asks what's for supper. Notice the candidates are meeting to discuss strategy and the RNC is not invited, What does that tell you?  That tells you Obama is giving Intel on Israel to the Iranians. Just ask Azerbaijan, who leaked the refueling deal with Israel for their bombers to Iran? Does Umma and Valerie speak fartsy?
When the all inclusive (1-real afro American 2- Latinos, an Italian lady, 2- country boys and a white guy from New York that's a variety show.) republican party doesn't trust the RNC that tells you somebody has to go.
NBC IS THE CLINTON PRAVDA. If Hillary stabbed someone to death live on TEE WEE.  Chris Matthews Rasfanjani would be praising Hillary's carving skills. We need good government now. The IRS cover up chief needs to be impeached to send the message. NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW.
If we can, can Martha Stewart AND GIVE OJ 50 YEARS FOR STEALING BASEBALL CARDS PLUS 10 MORE FOR STEALING COOKIES. We have an orange jump suit with their name on it. Impeachment is a good delaying tactic especially if the name on the document says Obama. One legacy coming up.
The Man for the job is Trump. He is a doer. He will keep his promises and not slam the door in your face once he is in office. He is the breath of fresh air we have been waiting for.Don't send him alone to do the job. Give him a cleaned out Senate and House. Give him the room to swing the bat and see the difference between BS and money in your bank. Watching the world series and counting all the broken bats I say no more Clintons.

New President must decide to leave the UN.  There are horrid and no nothing.

Right now the USA can veto almost anything since we are a permanent security council member. If we leave the UN, that leaves China, Russia, United Kingdom and France as the permanent members, do you REALLY want that?

If the U.S. veto's something but the other four permanent security members vote for it, don't they override the veto of the U.S.?  Just asking.

Not leave, abolish them , the same day  you abolish the IRS, EPA,  Dept.of Education,  Dept. of Homeland Security etc.  Use the Taxpayers money for something worthwhile for a change. President Trump, make us a Deal!!!

The United Nations is as evil as the worst criminal on death row! Get them out of the US is one of the top things we need to do. The second is to build the Ragan Star Wars Plan by putting a cover over America and Israel and tell the rest of the world to fight there own wars. The Star Wars Program would put a nuke missile on the ground before its fired and lift off. Clinton put a stop to the entire program after he was elected. But we seen what it did to stop the rocket fired into Israel. About 98% of the rockets have been shot down. As long as we have enemies in our country we will never stop the attacks from within.

They are just following the NON-EXISTENT E.T. agenda's INSTRUCTIONS.....................WHAT,...... did you expect a HUMAN LEANING AGENDA,....................FROM THE E. T.'S..................REALLY?


Looks like names of those in the United Nations need to be logged and those hunted down, tried for crimes against humanity and hung once we grab they WH. We grab them in New York, by surprise. Remember we take it (WH) at any cost this time. Every church pastor, priest, needs to be on the same page and speak to those in their communities come election day if and when it arrives. I see a thinning on the Horizon where we conservatives, christians and good decent people come out on top.

Archie, fuhrer Obama isn't going to allow elections.  he will find a reason to declare martial law, suspend the Constitution he now ignores, and declare himself ruler for life


I felt on day one once Obama was elected in 08, that he wouldn't give up the WH when his term was over. I stated that on our local Tea party site and then later here. Many seemed to understand and agreed. I just hope that isn't true and we get rid of him. I hate the bastard.

Gohmert: Dems Will Drag Out Impeachment — Try To Get ‘Best Socialist’ Nominated For President

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN on Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered his best assessment of what House Democrats were trying to accomplish with their impeachment efforts.

Gohmert told WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” impeachment could tie up the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign efforts but predicted Democrats would use the occasion to nominate “the best socialist” they can.

“They would lose in the Senate,” Gohmert said on impeachment. “And besides that, the entire time it was on trial in the Senate, the Democrats who are running for president wouldn’t be allowed to campaign. That’s in the Constitution. They wouldn’t be able to campaign. I just can’t imagine them wanting to do that because if they send it to the Senate, they have now perfectly set up the scenario of 1996, where they will reassure Donald Trump is reelected as president. They don’t want to do that. They’re probably going to drag this thing out as long as they possibly can … through Iowa, through primaries — try to get the best socialist they can to be nominated.”

“Then just end up and say, ‘Now we’re close enough to the general election. We’ve thrown mud at the president through the House,’” he continued. “What they’re really doing — they’re using taxpayer funds to campaign against Trump. That’s all this is — a campaign fund that taxpayers are paying for in order to try to throw mud at the president. I’ll be surprised if they have that vote, but I can’t imagine they want to set up this president for reelection by having a trial in the Senate where they lose.”
