After the Iraqi government’s security forces retreated from the city of Ramadi on May 17 — abandoning the important city of half a million people to the Islamic State (ISIS) forces — Shiite militia fighters from the Hashid Shaabi (Popular Mobilization) are preparing to join government troops and Sunni tribesmen to recapture the city.
U.S. Special Operations forces killed a senior Islamic State commander during a raid conducted in eastern Syria Friday night and early Saturday.
A mysterious “human rights” coalition purporting to speak for Native Americans in Alaska and Hawaiian natives is demanding an end to what it calls the U.S. “occupation” of those states — and it is asking for United Nations and hostile foreign powers to intervene to secure independence from the United States. The UN and the Obama administration have, in recent years especially, stepped up their “indigenous peoples” campaign to attack liberty. And analysts say the implications of the developments should be troubling to all Americans. The bizarre demand for UN and foreign government intervention comes as the Kremlin and Communist Beijing have taken an active interest in American secession movements.
With an apparent nod from the Obama administration, Bulgarian Communist Party operative and current UNESCO boss Irina Bokova is reportedly the “frontrunner” to become the next secretary-general of the United Nations. The controversial radical, whose communist roots run deep, is being touted to lead the UN by the Western globalist establishment and totalitarian Third World regimes — and not just because of her close ties with Moscow and reported acceptability to Obama. However, despite her past and her views being largely suppressed in the establishment press, Bokova’s candidacy should be troubling to all supporters of freedom, Judeo-Christian values, national sovereignty, and free markets.
While United Nations chief Ban Ki-moon was in Moscow schmoozing with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Communist Chinese dictator Xi Jinping, autocrats and UN bureaucrats were attacking the United States over its track record on what the global organization refers to as “human rights” — in reality government-granted privileges that can be revoked at will. The tyrant-dominated UN “Human Rights Council,” which has previously lambasted the U.S. government for not further defying the U.S. Constitution and infringing even more on the gun rights of Americans, focused largely on verbally attacking U.S. police during a session in Geneva. However, the outfit’s members also demanded everything from closing Guantanamo Bay and banning capital punishment to providing more taxpayer funding for abortion worldwide and more welfare at home.
