    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) had a message for North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un Wednesday during an interview with Fox’s Martha McCallum. “Here’s what’s crazy,” Graham said, “to keep building ICBMs that can deliver a nuclear weapon to America and believe that Donald Trump won’t do anything about it, that probably worked with Obama but I’m here to tell North Korea that our president has drawn a red line.” “If you keep threatening the American homeland with a nuclear weapon we’re going to destroy your regime,” he warned. “It's that simple.” “So if you want to survive, Kim Jong Un,...

    The United States on Monday blocked the adoption of a UN Security Council statement that would have called for an independent probe of deadly violence on the Israel-Gaza border, diplomats said, according to an AFP report. "The Security Council expresses its outrage and sorrow at the killing of Palestinian civilians exercising their right to peaceful protest," read a draft of the statement, a copy of which was seen by the news agency.

    The United Nations' International Action Network on Small Arms (IANSA) is finishing up their Global Week of Action Against Gun Violence. According to IANSA, the goal of the week-long meeting is "for us to advocate collectively for an end to illicit trade and misuse of small arms and light weapons." Under the Programme of Action to Prevent, Combat and Eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons in All Its Aspects (PoA), governments agreed to improve national small arms laws, import/export controls, and stockpile management – and to engage in cooperation and assistance. In 2005 they also adopted...

    GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. – A 5-year-old girl suffered serious injuries after she was attacked by a bear overnight in east Orchard Mesa. The girl had gone outside around 2:30 a.m. early Sunday to investigate noises she thought were being made by her dog, the girl’s mother told Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers. But the girl’s mother heard her daughter screaming and went outside to see a “large black bear” dragging her daughter, CPW officials said. The bear dropped the girl after her mother screamed at it. Their home is in the east Orchard Mesa area, above the Colorado River corridor,...

  • AI And War – Connection To Syria Strike – Third Revolution In Warfare – UN Debates Regulation.

    I have been researching Artificial Intelligence or AI since the United States, France, and Britain joined forces to strike Syria. Throughout the whole ‘shock and awe’ I kept thinking about AI, so I knew this incident was connected. When I cannot get a certain topic off my mind, I delve deeply into it. Thus, I have found this, and I am not shocked – just validated. Countries are spending billions on ‘third revolution in warfare’ as UN debates regulation of AI-powered weapons. I put the UN down, but in this case, thank God for it. This article was published April...
  • Asking agencies to follow the rules isn’t asking too much

    Accountability is sorely lacking in the administrative state. Unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats make decisions significantly affecting our daily lives with too little involvement from our elected officials. The Congressional Review Act was intended to restore at least some degree of democratic accountability to the administrative process. It requires agencies to submit to Congress every rule they wish to impose on you, giving the people you elected an opportunity to oversee what federal bureaucrats are up to. That’s the theory, at least. In practice, agencies have failed to comply with their obligations under the statute, withholding rules from Congress and thereby avoiding...

Jaafari said: “According to the Astana agreements, Turkey should have sent lightly armed police to observe and inspect terrorist organizations in Idlib.” But Turkey deployed soldiers...

Bolton, who was U.S. envoy to the United Nations for President George W. Bush, will become President Donald Trump’s national security adviser on Monday.

Yoav Mordechai, the IDF head of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories, wrote a letter to Tedros Adhanom, the head of the World Health Organization, an agency of the United Nations concerned with international public health, warning that Hamas’ plan to burn a massive amounts of tires on the border with Israel on Friday would be an “ecologic catastrophe.” “The Hamas terrorist organization, which controls the Gaza Strip, has issued an order to burn about 10,000 tires this Friday along the border with Israel,” Mordechai wrote. “The burning of tires in such a huge quantity will...

    United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Friday called for an "independent and transparent investigation" after 16 Gazans were killed and hundreds more wounded during clashes with the Israeli military, a spokesman said. The IDF has confirmed that at least ten of the 16 were terrorists. Guterres' call came as the UN Security Council heard fears of a further escalation in the violence in the Gaza during emergency talks. "The Secretary-General calls for an independent and transparent investigation into these incidents," said a statement by Guterres' deputy spokesman Farhan Haq, which also reaffirmed "the readiness" of the world body to...

    U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley has confirmed that going forward, the U.S. will pay no more than 25 percent of its peacekeeping costs. Associated Press reported she told a Security Council meeting this week, “Peacekeeping is a shared responsibility. All of us have a role to play, and all of us must step up.” The international group assessed the United States 28.5 percent of the $7.3 billion spending this year. But that broke the 25 percent limit established in U.S. law and Haley informed the government officials in the U.N. that’s the cap, starting with this year’s peacekeeping budget. But still,...

    It comes as no surprise that Congress’ $1.3 trillion dollar omnibus budget package is rubbing raw the already thin patience of the Republican base. Rather than draining the swamp, which includes seizing this historic moment of Republican control of both Congress and the White House to dramatically cut government spending, Congress instead (with the support of the White House) is spending as recklessly as when Democrats were in charge. Couple this with scant legislative victories outside of President Donald Trump’s tax cuts, especially in regards to expanding gun rights, Republicans are doing little – literally – to motivate voters to...

    In his address at a conference Monday, the founding member of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s conservative Fidesz party stated that “the new technique and ideology of government is aimed at creating (societies) without an identity”. Referring to proponents of global governance as “potential colonists”, Mr. Kövér said: “They want to strip people of their religious, national, family, and even sexual identities so that they are no longer able to recognise, express or enforce their own interests.” Hungary has been at the forefront of the battle against the erosion of the nation-state and conservative values with Prime Minister Orbán, vowing last...

    Human activities are causing an alarming decline in the variety of plant and animal life on Earth and jeopardizing food, clean water and energy supplies, a U.N.-backed study of biodiversity said on Friday. Pollution, climate change and forest clearances to make way for farmland were among the worsening threats to nature, according to more than 550 experts in a set of reports approved by 129 governments after talks in Colombia. “Biodiversity, the essential variety of life-forms on earth, continues to decline in every region of the world,” the authors wrote. “This alarming trend endangers the quality of life of people...
