United Nations Relief and Works Agency: Beyond the Headlines

The headlines are shocking enough: "Child Shot in UNRWA School Dies." "Israeli Gunfire Hits 11-Year-Old Girl …in an UNRWA School." So, too, are the accompanying statistics: "On June 1, two 10-year-old boys in UNRWA's Al-Umariye Elementary Boys' School in Rafah were...

UN Seeks New Environmental Treaty

Forty: That's the number of global and regional legal documents already in existence that dictate what actions can and cannot be taken regarding the world's forests. Forty-one: That's the number the United Nations hopes to reach via a new treaty on forestry...

Too Late for One, SCOTUS Accepts Land Use Case

Finally, the nation's highest court will hear a case with potential to clarify the Fifth Amendment's private property protections. But to what degree the outcome will impact the future actions of the nation's most oppressive land grabber, the federal government, is...

California Bill Pushes U.N. Treaty

Surely this is not what the Framers of our Constitution had in mind during creation of the 10th Amendment, "the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the...

The Department of Peace

The ability of some in Congress to completely trash our U.S. Constitution is simply breathtaking. Witness H.R. 1673, a bill introduced by Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) a year ago but roused from its subcommittee slumber just this March, with the addition of Rep. Linda...

United Nations Wages War on Capitalism

As if our nation's free-market ideal isn't damaged enough -- witness, if you will, the generally lengthy permitting process for businesses and the prevalence of zoning laws, environmental mandates, eminent domain abuses and hefty tax burdens that plague our would-be...

U.N. Breathes New Life into Kyoto

U.N. Breathes New Life into Kyoto

If one door closes, another always opens -- that's the creed that seems to guide the United Nations, anyway, as a recent report lays the groundwork for a new avenue of attack against carbon dioxide emissions. Evidently unhappy with America's decision against ratifying...

Turtle Bill Oozes U.N. Agenda

On June 18, Congress cleared the way for the president to sign into law a bill committing $25 million over five years to save turtles. As expensively ridiculous as this taxpayer-funded initiative seems, its creation and ultimate passage cannot be blamed solely on...

United Nations’ Law of the Sea Treaty

When former president Ronald Reagan declined to enter America into the United Nations' Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST), it seemed the debate over regulating the world's oceans at the global level had ended, at least for the duration of his leadership. Under former...
