7 states abstained from voting Saudi Arabia into UN women’s rights commission — RT News

Seven countries abstained from voting to appoint Saudi Arabia to the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), with the absence of a ‘no’ option, the Swedish Foreign Ministry has revealed.

The vote for membership in the CSW was held on April 19, leading to Saudi Arabia joining the 45-member body. Seven states abstained while another 47 voted ‘yes’ at the UN’s Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), the Swedish Foreign Ministry told local media.

Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom noted, however, that the delegation could not vote against Saudi Arabia, as there was no such option. She also said that the procedure was held by secret ballot so the diplomats would not be under any pressure.

UN Elects Largest Oppressor of Women, Saudi Arabia, to Woman’s Rights Commission — Seriously


(Jack Burns) Saudi Arabia isn’t known for gender equality. In fact, the Saudi government’s idea of fair play among the sexes is ensuring women their husbands can only have three more wives. Saudi women truly have zero rights in society. Ranking Saudi Arabia among the 10-worst-countries for women, the Toronto Star wrote, “In oil-rich Saudi Arabia, women are treated as lifelong dependents, under the guardianship of a male relative. Deprived of the right to drive a car or mix with men publicly, they are confined to strictly segregated lives on pain of severe punishment.” So, imagine the surprise and dismay the world is now exhibiting with the knowledge the United Nations has elected Saudi Arabia as a member of its Women’s Rights Commission called the “Commission on the Status of Women.”

Geneva-based UN Watch president Hillel Neuer likened the election to, “making an arsonist into the town Fire Chief!” Neuer went on a Twitter tirade to drive home the significance of his opposition to allowing Saudi Arabia to have a seat anywhere near a women’s rights council.

“The news the @UN never wanted you to see—but we made it go viral. Saudi Arabia elected to women’s rights commission,” he tweeted. Calling on opponents to rise up, he stated, “But why not show moral courage & condemn this UN betrayal of Saudi women’s rights activists? UNESCO’s chief condemned its election of Syria.”

And in another tweet, he said, “How does Saudi Arabia win seats on U.N. human rights bodies? Cash & secret deals—even with adversaries like Russia.” Neuer’s reference to Saudi money, certainly a factor in buying their way onto the commission, is nothing new. The Free Thought Project has been chronicling their monetary influence for years…

DR WILLIAM MOUNT: Trump Just Destroyed Agenda 21

In one Executive Order President Trump just destroyed the United Nations Agenda 21 – now upgraded to Agenda 30.

Agenda 21 is a United Nations Platform put forth in a 351 page Manual “Requesting” that all nations move to a Sustainable Growth.

Translation: Reduce the World’s Population to around 400 Million People living in Abject Poverty with the next 3 years.

Updated recently to Agenda 30 this population Reduction will be accomplished by the year 2030 and, according to the Chief Jesuit General in an interview,  the Opening of the Temple Of Lucifer in Jerusalem to be completed in the year 2032.

The Primary Precept of these United Nations Agenda’s is to more almost every one into the cities and then destroy them through various means – Poisoned Foods, Mandatory Vaccinations, Plagues, Wars, etc.

So – if the smaller towns are occupied by people the Agenda’s are destroyed.

Two things happened in 1980 that began forcing people out of small towns:

1) First – the Consent Decree. On 1 March 1980 the 9th Cicuit Court of appeals ruled that to be hired by the USA Forest Service as a Category 460 Employee (Forester) you must be woman or Black. Within 7 years the Forest Service Logging Industry – supplying vast amounts of timber – was dead.

This ruling was then used to lock White Males out of Forestry across the nation in State Forestry Programs.

Without this timber small towns simply die across America.

In 1986 I found myself at a Lunch prepared by Colonel Wiggins at his home near DC and met with the Head of the US Forest Service – Max Peterson. Colonel Wiggins son and I went to Engineer Officer’s Basic Course together near DC.

Max was wearing a Light Blue and white striped suit and was very plump.

I asked Max why he allowed the Consent Decree and why he did not take it to the US Supreme Court and over turn it and he said: “It was a sign of the times.”

So here is an example of what happened: In 1990 I applied for a Forrest Engineer Position here in Washington State. I was the highest rated Forest Engineer they had ever evaluated so all across the state – for 2 years – they would not fill the position and when  I spoke to “Governor Goofy” (Mike Lowry) about it he told me they could not hire me because I was a White Male.

Logging on state lands (25% revenue goes to schools) stopped and so did maintenance on Elementary Schools. When I went to the State Forestry Office in Enumclaw 3 years later I discovered that the Forest Engineer position was filled with a gal with no college diploma and she was the official Birthday Party Planner for the office.

When I spoke with her she did not know the difference between a Douglas Fir and a Ponderosa Pine – not kidding. She just simply routinely approved logging plans with no reviews.Source: DR WILLIAM MOUNT: Trump Just Destroyed Agenda 21

’Status quo in N. Korea unacceptable’: Trump scolds UNSC to up payments, wants more sanctions — RT America

President Donald Trump chastised the UN Security Council for underperforming and called on it to “impose additional and stronger sanctions” on North Korea during a meeting with UNSC ambassadors at the White House.

“The status quo in North Korea is also unacceptable, and the council must be prepared to impose additional and stronger sanctions on the North Korean nuclear and ballistic missile programs,” Trump said during the luncheon.

Trump also took a jab at the UN for ignoring threats like North Korea “for far too long.”

“This is a real threat to the world, whether we want to talk about it or not. North Korea is a big world problem and it’s a problem that we have to finally solve,” he said. “People put blindfolds on for decades and now it’s time to solve the problem.”…

Trump Summons UN Security Council To White House, Fueling Exit Rumors – Your News Wire

President Trump summoned an unusual United Nations Security Council meeting at the White House on Monday, fueling rumors that the United States is about to formally leave the organization. 

Earlier this year, Trump condemned the U.N. as one of the most “corrupt” organizations on earth, suggesting that he would look seriously at whether it was still in America’s interest to remain a member of the international body.

The United States … remains deeply troubled by the Council’s consistent unfair and unbalanced focus on one democratic country, Israel. No other nation is the focus of an entire agenda item. How is that a sensible priority?” Trump said last March…

A number of allegations stem from field missions in Haiti, where, according to AP, 134 Sri Lankan peacekeepers operated a sex ring between 2004 and 2007, involving nine children.

Peacekeepers from Bangladesh, Brazil, Jordan, Nigeria, Pakistan and Uruguay were also implicated in abuse cases, with some abusers said to have coerced victims into performing sexual acts, using food and money in a number of locations around the world. In some cases the abuse is said to have taken place in UN branded trucks.
