United Nonsense

Women in Saudi Arabia are required by law to have male legal guardians to make decisions for them on issues like healthcare, marriage and travel.  Women also aren’t allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia, must obtain permission  from their husbands to open a bank account and are forced to live under strict dress codes designed to “not show off their beauty.”  In other words, Saudia Arabia oppresses their women.

Last week, Saudi Arabia was elected to the United Nations Women’s Commission whose principle mission is to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment around the world.

Can someone remind me again, why the UN holds any sort of credibility?

A quote from Hillel Neuer, Executive Director of UN Watch sums it up best, “Electing Saudi Arabia to protect women’s rights is like making an arsonist the town fire chief.”

  1. Isn’t that just crazy? The UN has such an awesome track record of being completely insane.

    When are people in our government going to realize the UN is useless and should be kicked out of our country? STOP paying them one red cent and tell them to LEAVE and don’t let the door hit them in their greedy useless butts.

    Notice how most of the members take advantage of their “diplomatic immunity” and thwart our laws so they can practice a lifestyle that is banned in their country. The majority of the members are anti-US and anti-Israel. if they decide to deploy their forces to a hot spot very often the soldiers rape and rob the citizens they are supposed to protect.

    It’s time for them to go. Another example of big government gone bad and pouring taxpayers hard earned dollars down a hole and doing no good whatsoever.

      Oh totally Dennis! The only silver lining is we now have a tough, pro Western UN Ambassador with Nikki Haley in place. If we are going to continue to be a part of the UN at least we can help reform and change its direction.

  4. Some of the most genocidal nations have also served on the UN commissions for human rights.

    I think the US keeps the UN going just so they can keep an eye on all the global ruling class riff raff.

      You could be right about that Silence. Although there are probably a fair amount of entrenched bureaucrats who forever whatever reasons like things just as they are at the UN.

  7. The UN has outlived its purpose– time to scrape things and perhaps begin again – for this a broken wheel in need of mending!

  8. The U.N. seems to represent a symbol of greater world unity, without providing any real substance behind their resolutions to create a legitimate impact.

      Yes Jonathan, exactly! Intentions without action or in many cases action that goes in the opposite direction. Pure symbolism over substance. Heavily subsidized by our tax dollars of course.

    Why does the UN exist? It serves the purposes of politicians.

    What serves the purposes of politicians?
    Money.
    Power.

    How does the UN help politicians to obtain money and power?
    Check out => http://www.un.org/. Look at the About page. Consider the UN’s Funds, Programmes, Specialized Agencies and Others. Very busy organization that finds all kinds of ways to make all sorts of people FEEL happy about it.

    Here is some info about the UN budget => http://www.foxnews.com/world/2009/09/17/budget-believe-billion.html. Doesn’t seem to be easy to figure out what those guys are spending.

    My guess is one of the reasons the UN is hard to kill is that thieves running it scratch the backs of the people who scratch their backs.

      Wow Tom, I knew billions were being spent but had no idea it was that large. What an open invite to corruption and probably more nefarious things too. And you’re right, it’s a “feel good” organization so it will probably survive in to perpetuity. Doomed! 😉

        @Tricia

        Whether it survives as a worse than useless corrupt thing depends upon us. Trump is trying to reduce our funding of it. If we don’t give the UN any money, others will soon follow suit.

        It would be worth it just to get rid of the world bank which is another bag of worms. That organization has its own budget and tells countries how to operate their budgets.

        Here is an example of how absurd that gets. => https://www.theguardian.com/business/2017/apr/20/world-bank-chief-echoes-bill-gatess-warning-to-theresa-may-on-aid

          Ha, my Aunt used to work for the world bank and she could tell you some stories! That is so absurd Tom, it’s one thing to offer some but limited and temporary assistance, quite another to flood banana republic economies with aid and expect them to magically reform. We live in such strange times.

            Do we live in strange times? Perhaps, but I expect you would agree that people have not much changed. Except for the lost of technology, I expect Americans would find the Roman Empire agreeable — if they were Romans. I also don’t think the rest of the world would perceive much difference.

    Are you saying the Rothschild/ Rockefeller created UN is corrupt? How can you tell?
    UNESCO 11– The first director -general of UNESCO (1946-48) was Sir Julian Huxley, an ardent defender of Darwin’s evolution, and who wrote the 1948, “UNESCO: Its Purpose and Its Philosophy.” “The general philosophy of UNESCO should be a scientific world humanism, global in extent and evolutionary in background…its education program it can stress the ultimate need for world political unity and familiarize all peoples with the implications of the transfer of full sovereignty from separate nations to a world organization…Political unification in some sort of world government will be required…Tasks for the media division of UNESCO (will be) to promote the growth of a common outlook shared by all nations and cultures…to help the emergence of a single world culture….Even though it is quite true that any radical eugenic policy will be for many years politically and psychologically impossible, it will be important for UNESCO to see that the eugenic problem is examined with the greatest care, and that the public mind is informed of the issues at stake so that much that now is unthinkable may at least become thinkable.” 12
    Ah, kind of like Planned Parenthood, the wonderful world of Eugenics!

      What a despicable pig Huxley was. I don’t have anything against trying to align political interests of free nations, but like any typical humanist progressive, Huxley took it 9,000 steps too far with his ideas on world government. His love of eugenics is beyond comprehension too.

        His brother Aldous Huxley did write the book “A Brave New World” and “The Doors of Perception” which helped Jim Morrison name his somewhat famous band. It is possible he may have had some insight on what the UN has been doing. If they could say brainwash a whole generation to be say, liberals, they could easily control them. But, obviously, I am such a savage.
