    United Nations (United States) (AFP) - Governments that crack down on migrants are only harming themselves, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned Thursday ahead of UN talks on a global response to migration boycotted by the United States. Guterres presented a report to the General Assembly on ways to address the plight of the 258 million international migrants, some of whom are trapped in legal limbo. "Authorities that erect major obstacles to migration - or place severe restrictions on migrants' work opportunities - inflict needless economic self-harm," Guterres said. "They impose barriers to having their labor needs met in an orderly,...

    While this is an update I promised to a loyal reader of IWB, it is also a validation of my theory that there is a depopulation event taking place in Chicago. While the United Nations has designated Chicago its role model city, it fails to recognize the crime taking place in the black community. They gush about how Chicago is a model in sustainability and a leader in the green revolution. However, not one word has been said about blacks slaughtering blacks. Basically a bloody war in the black community is being waged while Rahm Emanuel and the United Nations...

    The United States administration froze a $125 million grant to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), the UN’s agency for “Palestinian refugees”, which was supposed to be delivered on January 1, Channel 10 News reported on Friday, citing three Western diplomats. The amount frozen is one-third of the annual funding the United States provides the organization, according to the report. The three diplomats, who asked to remain anonymous because of the political sensitivity of the issue, told Channel 10 the grant had been frozen until the end of the reexamination of U.S. aid to the Palestinians, which began...

    There is no doubt that the U.S. delegation has something to tell the world,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote on Facebook. “For example, Nikki Haley can share America’s experience in breaking up protests, going into detail about how, say, the mass arrests and the stifling of the Occupy Wall Street movement happened or how Ferguson was ‘quelled,’” she added.

    (AFP) — UNITED NATIONS — The US Ambassador to the United Nations called on the international community to speak out on the unfolding protests in Iran, saying the US would seek emergency UN talks on the situation. “The people of Iran are crying out for freedom,” Nikki Haley said at a news conference. “All freedom-loving people must stand with their cause.” She said the United States would be seeking emergency sessions of the UN Security Council and the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Commission in the coming days. Haley rejected as “complete nonsense” charges by Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei...

    There have been rumors swirling around the Internet that the United Nations’ Peacekeepers are invading the US through Chicago. I can say as of today, December 29, 2017, I believe it to be true for more than rumor’s sake. There is evidence Chicago has been prepping for this takeover through the Model UN Development Organization (MUNDO). The Chicago International Model United Nations (CIMUN) conference is an annual four-day event for high school Model United Nations students. It is held at the Hilton Chicago hotel in downtown Chicago, Illinois in December. It is currently on its eleventh installment. This has been...

    At one of the White House Christmas parties, President Trump asked me to say a few words before I closed the evening with a prayer. I thanked the President for many things, including “having the guts to do what no other president has done in officially recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.” “ Mr. President,” I said, “you are on the right side of history and the right side of God.” That the United Nations is on the wrong side of history and would condemn President Trump’s declaration about Jerusalem was completely expected . . . and totally illogical....

    Editor's Note: John Schlafly co-authored this column.On Dec. 21, as President Trump prepared to leave Washington for Christmas at Mar-a-Lago, the White House released a list of “81 major accomplishments” during the President’s first year in office. A second list touted more than 100 other “minor achievements” in 2017. His fulfillment of his campaign promise to roll back globalism is one of his crowning achievements of the year. Without exception, President Trump stood up against the incessant pressure by other countries against the United States. An example of this occurred later the same day at the United Nations in New...

    NBC and MSNBC have been on a crusade during the Christmas season to smear and slam the United States at every opportunity because of the Trump administration’s new direction in dealing with the inept United Nations. During Tuesday’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, fill-in host Ayman Mohyeldin and former Obama-era Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Evelyn Farkas were worried that the U.S. negotiated spending cut was politically motivated and that the administration’s attitude towards the U.N. could harm the U.N. mission of preventing “global war.” After introducing Farkas, Mohyeldin downplayed the U.N.’s wastefulness by describing it as a “somewhat a bloated bureaucracy.”...

    Why the president's Jerusalem decision was the right thing to do. The Trump administration vetoed a United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolution last week that called on the U.S. to rescind its decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, and ultimately move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the seat of Israel’s parliament (Knesset), the Supreme Court, and where the Prime Minister and President of the Jewish State reside.  The UNSC resolution drafted by Egypt and backed by 13 other members of the Security Council affirms that “any decision and actions which purport to have altered the character,...

    Today, the United Nations agreed on a budget for the 2018-2019 fiscal year. ‎Among a host of other successes, the United States negotiated a reduction of over $285 million off the 2016-2017 final budget. In addition to these significant cost savings, we reduced the UN’s bloated management and support functions, bolstered support for key U.S. priorities throughout the world, and instilled more discipline and accountability throughout the UN system. “The inefficiency and overspending of the United Nations are well known. We will no longer let the generosity of the American people be taken advantage of or remain unchecked. This historic...

    Prior to the United Nations General Assembly vote to declare President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel “null and void,” the representatives of some of the world’s most egregious violators of human rights stood behind the podium, one after the other, to condemn the U.S. and the Jewish state. CNN’s Jake Tapper pointed out after the vote, citing the independent monitor U.N. Watch, that of 97 resolutions issued by the U.N. General Assembly between 2010 and 2015, 83 were condemnations of Israel. “You have to ask, is Israel truly deserving of 86 percent of the world’s condemnation?...

    Nikki Haley If you trust the major headlines, the big news out of the United Nations is that the UN General Assembly just voted overwhelmingly to reprimand the U.S. over President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv. " U.N. Vote Rebukes U.S. for Jerusalem Move," reports the Wall Street Journal. " Defying Trump, U.N. General Assembly Condemns U.S. Decree on Jerusalem," reports the New York Times. As bean-counting goes, that's an accurate depiction of Thursday's UN-as-usual vote, to which these headlines refer. But I'd say...

Check out the video clip, as Weir sneeringly mocks countries voting with the United States against the UN Resolution condemning President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the embassy there. Weir sarcastically describes as “big ones” the small countries voting with the US. As he reads off the list, someone can be heard to snicker. Weir joins in, laughing in derision.

    There was a bad hombre beatdown at the U.N. yesterday and it’s been coming for a long time. It came after various thug regimes, gangster states and Euro softies voted in a resolution condemning the U.S. for recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. They’re especially miffed that President Trump plans to move our embassy there. His U.N. ambassador, Nikki Haley, made it clear that the U.S. runs its own house. “America will put our embassy in Jerusalem. That is what the American people want us to do, and it is the right thing to do. No vote in the...

    Trump administration is displaying the “principled realism” so lacking during the last administration. Just about a year after the Obama administration stood by and allowed a blatantly anti-Israel UN Security Council resolution to pass, the Trump administration vetoed a Security Council resolution on December 18th that sought to invalidate President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. In discussing the U.S. veto, Ambassador Nikki Haley reminded the other members of the Security Council who had denounced President Trump’s decision and voted for the resolution that national sovereignty...

    Video at link is 5 minutes, 17 seconds in length. I don't watch TV but you do, you've probably already seen Nicki Halley addressing the UN today. This is a nice little excerpt for those of us who didn't catch a broadcast. I was moved by the directness, strength and honesty of the US's position expressed by Haley and felt like cheering at the end.

    The United Nations general assembly has delivered a stinging rebuke to Donald Trump, voting by a huge majority to reject his unilateral recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The vote came after a redoubling of threats by Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the UN, who said that Washington would remember which countries “disrespected” America by voting against it. Despite the warning, 128 members voted on Thursday in favour of the resolution supporting the long-standing international consensus that the status of Jerusalem – which is claimed as a capital by both Israel and the Palestinians – can only be settled...

    UNITED NATIONS — A majority of the world’s nations delivered a stinging rebuke to the United States on Thursday, denouncing its decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and ignoring President Trump’s threats to retaliating by cutting aid to countries voting against it. In a collective act of defiance toward Washington, the General Assembly voted 128 to 9, with 35 abstentions, to demand that the United States rescind its Dec. 6 declaration on Jerusalem, the contested holy city.

    The United States has publicly warned United Nations member states not to support Thursday’s UN General Assembly resolution denouncing US President Donald Trump’s declaration that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital. The text will also call for nations, including the US, not to relocate their embassies from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. To date, the US is the only country who said it will do so. The UN General Assembly is scheduled to hold a special emergency session to disavow Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem on Thursday at the request of Yemen, Turkey and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. The resolution is expected to...
