If you are following the Agenda 2030, or “Sustainable 2030” policies that the United Nations and the Atlantic council plus many other organizations seriously hope to bring about, you know how much these groups plan for an onslaught of Globalization. So you need to be aware of what is going on behind the scenes. Here […]

Humiliated and Embarrassed by World Opinion

 

You know what causes most of the world’s UN representatives to have conniption fits? Let’s see, would it be an endless civil war in Syria in which hundreds of thousands have been senselessly killed? No, not really. How about the endless nuclear threats emanating from the psycho-Marxist state of North Korea that endanger world stability? Actually, not so much. Well then, how about the collapse of oil-rich Venezuela into chaos and starvation due to government-imposed socialism? Nope, it’s all good.

Well, what then? Here’s a simple, one-word clue: Israel. That’s really all you need to know, isn’t it? The entire world could be collapsing due to simultaneously occurring wars and various apocalyptic events and the only thing that would get a rise out of this Jew-hating deliberative body is anything at all to do with Israel.

A Proposal on Embassy Locations

 

128 countries have decided that they have every right to tell another nation what can and cannot be its capital city. Each of these countries marked in green has said that Jerusalem is not Israel’s capital city and that agreeing with Israel that it is should be punished.

You May Say I’m a Dreamer

 

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club podcast for Septembr 5, 2017, it’s the You May Say I’m a Dreamer edition of the podcast with your hosts, Todd Feinburg, radio talk show host and Mike Stopa, nanophysicist. This week we are inclined, nay, veritably forced into the two topics of the week – (1) the end (or not the end) of DACA and (2) the end (no, no not the end!) of Western Civilization as brought to you by Kim Jong Un.

Mike makes a prediction that Trump will – as planned – announce the end of DACA in six months and that Congress – in Congressional best form – will do nothing during that six months and that (maybe) DACA will end uneventfully. Of course, the only time I predict continued Congressional gridlock may turn out to be the only case where Congress actually gets something done.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America cheer UN Ambassador Nikki Haley in her firm-handed approach to the security threat posed by North Korea, specifically regarding China’s refusal to cooperate with UN resolutions against the isolated nation. They also express frustration with national media over their lack of coverage of Rep. Steve Scalise’s condition as […]

Bipartisan Rebuke on Israel, Mattis vs. Trump, Dowd vs. Cruz?

 

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud House Republicans and Democrats for an overwhelming vote condemning the UN resolution against Israel. They also groan as the Trump transition and Gen. James Mattis butt heads over who should fill top Pentagon positions. And they get a kick out of news that former Bush operative Matthew Dowd is thinking of running against Ted Cruz in 2018.

Omri Ceren Breaks Down the Diplomatic Fallout of UNSC’s Condemnation of Israel

 

Omri Ceren (@CerenOmri) is the Managing Director for Press and Strategy at The Israel Project (TIP) and he had this to say on Twitter about how unprecedented UNSCR 2334 is, what a major break it represents from long-term American policy, and how it treats “international law.” (Scare quotes because it’s a made-up term that now means what ever we can use to bash Jews and protect real human rights abusers.)

Can’t believe this has to be done, but here’s why anyone who compares Obama knifing Israel to previous US diplomacy is a hack or an idiot 1/

A lot of ink has been spilled (digital and otherwise) about the unconscionable abstention of the Obama Administration in the UN Security Council’s condemnation of Israel this past week. What I am not seeing very much of is mention of the perfidy of some of Israel’s other erstwhile “allies” specifically the United Kingdom and New […]

A Hanukkah Message to the UN Security Council

 

I actually think it’s poetic. As Hanukkah, a festival of Jewish resistance, approaches, the world turns on the Jewish state and a former ally shows its true colors. Much is being said about Obama’s choice to abstain from voting on the UN Security council resolution, condemning Israeli settlements as illegal, and much will continue to be said, but judging by what I have seen so far I am neither impressed nor overly interested.

None of us can really be that surprised, right? This was an obvious move by President Obama, a suitable last hurrah if you will, from a man who from day one set out to set himself apart as the breaker of ties and holder of grudges. He was never a friend of Israel, and combined with his not-too-subtle need for pompous pageantry, this last kick in the gut toward Israel was a given, and boy did he give it with a bang.

Obama Kicks Israel on His Way Out the Door

 

Aleppo is crumbling, Libya is in ruins, Russia is threatening its neighbors, and China is militarizing the South China Sea. But the UN is taking action against Israel. And Obama let them:

The U.N. Security Council on Friday passed a resolution demanding Israel cease Jewish settlement activity on Palestinian territory in a unanimous vote that passed when the United States abstained rather than using its veto as it has reliably done in the past.

(Important Update Oct. 15) On Thursday of this week, UNESCO voted 24-6 to deny that the Temple Mount is a Jewish site and therefore, has no connection to the Jewish people. Further, it will only use the Arab name for it. Below is the article and how countries voted, or for some reason, abstained.  More

Fellow Ricochetti, this is my final dispatch from Bucharest. Politics, such as it is, looks like its heading towards normality, such as we have it. The process of normalization is as full of disappointment as you would expect. There is very little reflection on the difference between the two states, though everyone can tell abnormal […]

First They Came for My Bacon

 

bacon-flagI feel like I’m being trolled. This announcement has all the ingredients to make me furious: it’s a “health” message in the New York Times, from a UN-ish Non-Governmental Busybody, aimed at governments around the world who interest themselves with their citizens’ eating habits.

In other words, it’s the perfect storm of nonsense. Plus, they’re trying to take away our bacon.

Heard about this today, searched on Bing about it, saw enough to send me here. What can the Ricochetti tell me about this? Is it as scary as I think it is? Twenty five cities have been chosen throughout the country for a program to retrain city police to work with the UN on combating […]

Am I missing something in this Doctors Without Borders tragedy, which is now turning into a comedy? Aren’t surgeons educated enough to know that friendly fire, including mistaken targeting, is an unfortunate aspect of every war? I suppose it should be expected that highly educated professionals like physicians, so long indoctrinated in hippie mislogic at […]
