Foreign Dictator Week

So much has happened this week it is hard to know where to begin. In Congress civil war is underway in the House and the Senate; In New York a near riot broke out over bobblehead dolls at Yankee Stadium; The Islamists are taking over the opposition in Syria.;  a small liberal arts college in upstate New York  is putting on a program  for women students  on how to have orgasms; and Bill Clinton thinks Chelsea would make a good president. With all of that rich material to choose from, I find myself tonight focused on something that Mark Steyn mentioned on the radio yesterday: it is foreign dictator week in New York!

Yes the streets and hotels are overflowing with foreign dictators of every size shape and color as they come to the United Nations to harangue, bloviate, insult and otherwise annoy the good people of New York. With their entourages and lackeys, they block traffic, cause gridlock, and waste huge amounts of money on the trappings that dictators love so much. It is one week every year of  “the Dictator” with Sacha Baron Cohen. I have the trailer for the movie below if you haven’t seen it.

Into that mix we have our own junior egotist, Barack Obama. He rides into town with the goal of fixing the world with his words and solving problems with his keen abilities. Embarrassingly, after the White House insinuated and basically telegraphed it, he was ignored on multiple occasions by the president of Iran as President Obama attempted to get a photo op shaking hands. Clearly the Iranian president was too smart to be put in that PR position to help Obama. I listened to the Presidents speech congratulating himself for how he has changed the world and made it a better place. He also took the opportunity to blame the US again for interfering in other countries.

Let me think about this for a minute. If we were back in the 1930’s wouldn’t it have been better to take on the thugs rather than end up in a world war? Wouldn’t it have been better if the German military had overthrown the democratically elected Hitler? Think Egypt. But that is not the style of Barack. He is a man of the world, a Nobel Prize winner and the world owes him a debt of thanks. Well excuse me if I don’t think the world is a better place now than it was five years ago. But that is just one mans opinion.

The International Criminal Court Speaks!

So today the  International Criminal Court in the Hague issued arrest warrants for Moammar  Qadaffi, his son, and one of his intelligence chiefs. I bet that has the Libyans quaking in their boots! Yet another totally meaningless and worthless pronouncement from an impotent and questionable institution.  Poor Moammar; I am actually beginning to feel sorry for him. He is just small enough to have the world gang up on him as if he were the greatest master criminal on earth.

How ironic it was that Bin Laden never made the list; Or Ahmadinejad; or the Chinese, or the Russians or countless African dictators. The UN and its institutions are a sorry excuse for international organizations, Perhaps at one time they served a purpose, but now, they are instruments of a bloated third world  bureaucracy with an anti western and anti Israeli agenda. Perhaps issuing this pronouncement about Libya makes some feel like they are relevant in the Netherlands. Unfortunately, it only shows how weak they are.

I dont think Qadaffi will lose sleep tonight. Do you ?

Summit of African Descendents

I read the story below recently and truly am at a loss for words. It is so mind boggling it is laughable. Sadly, it is true. How can the world be so taken in by these people? The UN is a useless organization as the article below exemplifies. While the world disintegrates into chaos they spend time and money on useless ventures like this.  Why not a summit on Irish descendents, or Italian, or Mexican? Which group is the flavor of the month for the UN?  I pray the US will not participate. I also pray the US will not give one cent to this ludicrous idea. I object strongly to the idea that we owe the world for our success. I believe in charity given from the heart, not dictated by a UN organization. What do you think?

U.N.-Backed Summit Seeks ‘Social Justice’ for African Descendants

Friday, May 27, 2011
By Susan Jones

( – Only three months to go until the First World Summit of African Descendants, a U.N.-sponsored event that aims to “right historical wrongs.”

The August 18-21 summit in La Ceiba, Honduras, will focus on the socioeconomic conditions of Afro-descendant populations and establish a plan to “ensure development with equity for these groups,” said the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and the World Health Organization (WHO), which announced the event in Washington on Thursday.

The event is part of the United Nations-declared International Year of African Descendants.

“This International Year of African Descendants provides an opportunity to right historical wrongs: in health, education, poverty, land rights, jobs, and financial credit for economic and social progress,” said Pan American Health Organization Director Mirta Roses in a news release. “This celebration is important for recognizing the strength and resilience of Afro-descendant communities throughout the Americas, who have thrived despite historical discrimination and repression.”

The U.N. says an estimated 150 million African descendants live in Mexico and Central and South America.

Health, contraceptives and social justice

According to PAHO/WHO, compared with Caucasians, the babies of African descendants are more likely to die, their mothers face more risks in childbirth, adult men have higher rates of homicide and HIV, and adolescents are more likely to become pregnant.

At the same time, “equal access to health services and contraceptives remains a challenge,” said Dr. Roses. “This year is a time to celebrate the power of Afro-descendant organizations in challenging and changing these inequalities.”

The summit will provide an opportunity to analyze international cooperation and “close the existing development gaps through concrete commitments, clear strategies, and adequate resources,” said Jorge Ramón Hernández Alcerro, the Honduran ambassador to the United States.

“We are in 2011, and this will be the First World Summit of African Descendants,” said Jim Coffin, of Phelps-Stokes, a philanthropist group that promotes “social justice” in Africa and the Americas. “People will be empowered, commitments will be made. This summit will make a big difference.”

One of the Americas’ pending debts is to “put an end to historical and structural discrimination against African descendants,” said Santiago Cantón, executive secretary of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR). He said initiatives such as the summit are “essential steps” toward ending such discrimination. He said the summit will raise awareness of violations of the human rights of African descendants, and thereby help put an end to them.

Organizers say the summit also will follow up on previous commitments, such as those made at the World Conference against Racism in Durban, South Africa.

As previously reported, the Durban conference was marked by strong disagreements over issues, including attempts to equate Zionism with apartheid and calls for the U.S. and other Western nations to pay reparations for slavery. The conference and a parallel NGO gathering eventually degenerated into what critics described as an anti-Israel “hate-fest,” and the Bush administration withdrew its already-downgraded delegation in protest. The Israeli representatives also walked out.

Discussions at the Honduras summit will focus on politics, society, culture, and education. Organizers expect up to 800 people to participate in the summit, including  representatives of international organizations and “Afro-descendant social movements.”

Celeo Álvarez Casildo, president of the Organization for Ethnic Community Development (ODECO) and executive secretary of the World Summit of African Descendants, on Thursday thanked organizations including IACHR, the Inter-American Development Bank, and PAHO/WHO for their support.

PAHO Director Roses praised ODECO for providing “global leadership by bringing together people from all over the world to celebrate their African heritage and their achievements.”

Álvarez Casildo said the summit was expected to conclude with a “Declaration of the Decade of African Descendants and the creation of a new fund for Afro-descendant Development.

“The summit is not the end, it’s a means for transformation,” he said. “It’s an extremely important medium to ensure that these voices no longer remain silent.”

Revenge of Ferngully

First it was Ferngully, then the Hot Zone, then Avatar. When will the environmentalists stop in their efforts to turn back the clock on development and growth? Well according to recent reports, Mother Earth is about to be given the same rights as a human.

 According to the article excerpted below, Bolivia is pushing for this resolution at the UN this year. The arrogance of this is breathtaking, and the implications are of course significant. Once again, we, the capitalist nations, are guilty of rape and exploitation of earth and will need to be brought down a peg or two. And what better organization than the all knowing and efficient UN to enforce this.

 If we had an administration run by adults with common sense, I would not be so worried. But with this crowd I can only imagine the worst at the UN. I just hope they dont watch Avatar befor they decide our position or we will all be blue!

UNITED NATIONS — Bolivia will this month table a draft United Nations treaty giving “Mother Earth” the same rights as humans — having just passed a domestic law that does the same for bugs, trees and all other natural things in the South American country.

The bid aims to have the UN recognize the Earth as a living entity that humans have sought to “dominate and exploit” — to the point that the “well-being and existence of many beings” is now threatened.

That document speaks of the country’s natural resources as “blessings,” and grants the Earth a series of specific rights that include rights to life, water and clean air; the right to repair livelihoods affected by human activities; and the right to be free from pollution.

It also establishes a Ministry of Mother Earth, and provides the planet with an ombudsman whose job is to hear nature’s complaints as voiced by activist and other groups, including the state.

Reflecting indigenous traditional beliefs, the proposed global treaty says humans have caused “severe destruction . . . that is offensive to the many faiths, wisdom traditions and indigenous cultures for whom Mother Earth is sacred.”

It also says that “Mother Earth has the right to exist, to persist and to continue the vital cycles, structures, functions and processes that sustain all human beings.”

In indigenous Andean culture, the Earth deity known as Pachamama is the centre of all life, and humans are considered equal to all other entities.

The UN debate begins two days before the UN’s recognition April 22 of the second International Mother Earth Day — another Morales-led initiative.

Why do we have a UN?

This past week we had the spectacle of thugs, dictators, murderers and other societal refuse showing up in New York to address the United Nations. Now this is nothing new as the UN has fallen mightily from its inception after World War Two.  There is very little that the UN accomplishes these days, and for what it does, we, the United States pay the lions share. I used to think, OK, let them come to NY where we can keep an eye on them. But the price to be paid is a murderers row of UN missions by two bit countries that tax the resources of our police, law enforcement, and intelligence agencies.  It is a sorry sight indeed to have the dictators of the world preen, lecture, lie, and threaten,  and be applauded for it.

While you might have thought there was nothing more outrageous the UN could do to enrage you, read this: the UN is about to announce the appointment of the representative of Earth who will be the individual to speak with aliens should they arrive. The spokesman for humanity is not the president of the US, or any major nation, it is a female scientist from Malaysia. Her job will be to represent mankind.  I actually wanted that job but was not called.

I do not know the qualifications she has. Mine were a sense of humor; a big fan of Battlestar Gallactica and Caprica;   an innate knowledge of all the Star Trek series;  and a visit to the official UFO museum and research center in Roswell New Mexico.  Top that Malaysian scientist!  Well it is a done deal and the fix was in. I think it was a gender, minority, third world set aside so I didnt have a chance.  I would like to begin a list of people I wouldnt mind speaking for earth . Feel free to add to the list:

Chuck Norris

Jay Leno

Henny Youngman

Glen Beck

William Shatner

Heidi Klum

Arnold Schwarzenegger

Russell Crow

I could go on and on, but let me stop here and let your imaginations run on this one. Ther article  from the New York Post is below for your reading astonishment. Enjoy!

“E.T. — phone the UN!

If an alien ever lands in your back yard and says, “Take me to your leader,” the United Nations is giving you someone to call.

Mazlan Othman, an obscure Malaysian scientist, will be named as the Earth’s official alien-spacecraft greeter. She’s expected to announce her new role at a conference next week.

While Hollywood and most Americans assume the president of the United States would speak to aliens on behalf of earthlings, the United Nations thinks real extraterrestrials should get a more globalized response.

Othman, head of the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs, backs that view.

 “The continued search for extraterrestrial communication, by several entities, sustains the hope that someday humankind will receive signals from extraterrestrials,” she said in a recording of a recent speech, reported by the Sunday Times of London.

“When we do, we should have in place a coordinated response that takes into account all the sensitivities related to the subject. The UN is a ready-made mechanism for such coordination.”

At the upcoming conference in Britain, Othman is expected to tell delegates that the recent discovery of hundreds of planets around other stars has made the detection of extraterrestrial life more likely than ever before — and that means the United Nations must be ready to coordinate humanity’s response to any “first contact.”

Othman is an astrophysicist who got her Ph.D. in New Zealand.

Scientists who work with her say her job is essentially to be the mouthpiece for mankind.

“Othman is absolutely the nearest thing we have to a ‘Take me to your leader’ person,” said professor Richard Crowther, a space law expert with the United Kingdom Space Agency.

Alien arrivals aren’t the only cinematic-style issues that Othman’s office investigates.

It’s also in charge of deciding what to do if a deadly asteroid is found to be on a collision course with Earth.

The last UN official picked as Earth’s official mouthpiece provoked controversy.

In 1977, two Voyager spacecraft went into space with recordings that were meant to be a message from Earth to intelligent life in the galaxy.

The voice on the message, however, belonged to then UN Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim, who was later discovered to have been an enthusiastic member of the Nazi party during World War II.”
