Nikki Haley Tells UN General Assembly Off Before Vote on Jerusalem Embassy Move

by Steve MacDonald December 22, 2017

America doesn’t care what the UN thinks but that doesn’t mean what they think comes without consequence. Nikki Haley makes a few points in advance of a vote whose outcome I’m sure she already knew. (This is–after all–the Israel hating UN we’re talking about.)

Nikki Haley Comes Between Iran and It’s Nuclear Program

by Steve MacDonald August 26, 2017

UN Ambassador Nikki Haley has been working on Iran Nuke-Deal oversight, with a focus on compliance. The US doesn’t think Iran is following the deal to the letter. Iran thinks the US is trying to undermine the IAEA Inspectors by meeting with them and wants the Inspectors to keep mum. No one entirely trusts anyone, and […]

What Does Keeping the Paris Agreement Alive Actually Mean?

by Steve MacDonald July 13, 2017

From the EU to California to Nashua and Portsmouth, New Hampshire, politicians and pundits are promising to keep the Paris Agreement alive despite President Trump’s exit. But what does that actually mean? It depends. If you’re Turkey, it means you expect bitter Paris Accord clingers to write you a check to pay for the cost of compliance. If […]

Niki Haley – the new Jeanne Kirkpatrick?

by Skip April 7, 2017

“…Any country that chooses to defend the atrocities of the Syrian regime will have to do so in full public view, for all the world to see” (H/T: Instapundit) And this really is SMART “soft power” (which Obama utilized to little effect) – knowing that world now knows that America’s soft power is now backed […]

“You’re going to see a change in the way we do business,” Ms. Haley said. “Our goal with the administration is to show value at the U.N., and the way we’ll show value is to show our strength, show our voice, have the backs of our allies and make sure our allies have our back […]

Peace Prize Winner Obama Just Ended 49 Years of “Peace” in the Middle East

by Steve MacDonald January 1, 2017

The Jerusalem Post has a great article on what it views as the machinations of Obama against Isreal, through the U.N. You should read the whole thing, but I wanted to share this tiny bit because it contrasts nicely against the murky silhouette of Nobel Peace Prize Obama. (Formatting changes, mine) UN Security Council Resolution 2334 was […]

If You Hate the Electoral College You Can’t Love the UN

by Steve MacDonald December 30, 2016

In this week’s G-File Jonah Goldberg talks about the UN vs. Israel. There is, as always, lots of good stuff, but when he contrasted liberal outrage over the Electoral College to loving how the UN does things, well… It’s kind of funny. We’ve spent the last six weeks hearing how eeeeeeevill the Electoral College is because […]

Obama: Was this the diplomacy equivalent of removing the “W” keys?

by Skip December 24, 2016

Famously the Clinton White House staffers removed the “W” keys from their keyboards just before George W Bush took over the Oval Office.  This was the F. U. moment of a group of youngsters that were in an ideological pique of years that belied their status.  Not only was it a sophomoric stunt but it […]

Group Wants Leo DiCaprio to Step Down as UN “Green”s Keeper

by Steve MacDonald October 17, 2016

Leo DiCaprio, like those in the Borgia era, is just another corrupt Cardinal in the Climate Change College. Preaching one life while living another. But not every so-called Green Group is willing to look the other way. At a press conference in London, the Bruno Manser Funds offered DiCaprio an ultimatum: either he renounce his connections […]

The Democrat pictured above in the Amherst Independence Day Parade is (we are told) one Martin Goulet. “Martin Goulet of Amherst, NH,” really felt the Bern. He also writes informational content on the Amherst Democrat’s blog site and thinks that Independence Day is also UN Pride Day. (Go Free speech, right?)

Thumbnail image for Remember the Media Coverage Of the UN Passage of the “Protection of the Family” Resolution?

The American Political class and the left-most bits of it in particular, keep the United Nations on a pedestal like a rare and precious plant. When it blooms they are quick to trumpet the event with prose and praise. Clippings are quickly rooted in EPA approved purified fair-trade water and transplanted. Not this time.

Israel is a vibrant democracy with full rights for women and gays, a free press and independent judiciary. You would think that the United Nations would celebrate such a country. Instead, the UN condemns Israel at every turn to the point of obsession. How did this happen? Anne Bayefsky, director of the Touro Institute on […]
