    US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley slammed Russia at the GOP retreat in West Virginia on Thursday, definitively telling Republican lawmakers that Moscow "is not, will not, be our friend." "As long as their government has the values that it has, and as long as it conducts itself the way it does internationally," Haley said. Haley made it very clear that Russia meddled in the 2016 US election but also noted that "there is no reason to think the Russian interference made any difference between who won and lost."
  • Rethinking the Geography of Power

    Where the seats of power are located matters. Given the populist revolt in the United States and Europe against the so-called "global elite," it is time to refigure the geography of governmental and transnational power. Take the United Nations. Much of the international body's perceived negatives derive from being in the world's richest and most visible city, New York. But what if U.N. elites did not have easy access to instant television exposure, tony Manhattan digs, and who's-who networking? Most of the world is non-Western. Many Western elites are apologetic over past sins of imperialism and colonialism. So why not...

    U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has vehemently denied a rumor started by “Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff that she is having an extramarital affair with President Trump, calling the allegations that she slept her way to the top “disgusting” and “highly offensive” to women in power. “It is absolutely not true,” Mrs. Haley told Politico in an interview published Friday. “But it goes to a bigger issue that we need to always be conscious of: At every point in my life, I’ve noticed that if you speak your mind and you’re strong about it and you...
  • Trump Just Took Back Another $45 Million Obama Was Sending to Terrorists

    When President Donald Trump suggested on Twitter earlier this month that he might cut off aid to the terror-affiliated Palestinians, whom former President Barack Obama had coddled like children, he meant every word of it — and more. This week the State Department announced it intends to not only withhold $45 million in aid to the Palestinians, but also an additional “$65 million it had planned to pay the U.N. agency that serves the Palestinians,” according to Reuters. That agency is the U.N. Relief and Works Agency, or UNRWA. Talk about killing two birds with one stone. Below is Trump’s...

    The United Nations has allowed sexual harassment and assault to flourish in its offices around the world, with accusers ignored and perpetrators free to act with impunity, the Guardian has been told.Dozens of current and former UN employees described a culture of silence across the organisation and a flawed grievance system that is stacked against victims.Of the employees interviewed, 15 said they had experienced or reported sexual harassment or assault within the past five years. The alleged offences ranged from verbal harassment to rape.Seven of the women had formally reported what happened, a route that campaigners say is rarely pursued...

    The Diplomat ^ | N. Sears
    Despite the “rise and fall of the unipolar concert,” China and Russia’s balancing strategies have backfired: they are not leading to multipolarity, but are actually reinforcing unipolarity. The reason is that China and Russia’s balancing strategies have focused on regional “revisionism,” which has provoked powerful responses in East Asia and Europe to contain them. Russia’s balancing strategy has to a large extent proven to be counter-productive. Instead of preventing the expansion of NATO through a “divide and conquer” strategy, or driving a diplomatic wedge between the United States and Europe, Russian revisionism has united NATO...Perhaps most illustrative of all, a...

    United Nations Secretary General António Guterres has unveiled his plan to promote global mass migration in the left-liberal Guardian newspaper. Guterres, a former Socialist Party prime minister in his native Portugal, took over the top job at the UN on January 1st, having previously served as the institution’s High Commissioner for Refugees. His article, titled ‘Migration can benefit the world. This is how we at the UN plan to help’, makes the bold claim that mass migration “powers economic growth, reduces inequalities and connects diverse societies”, in order to promote the Global Compact for Migration. “This will be the first...

    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 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...
