If the UN is given control of the Internet, that would be a massive step toward making the UN a true global government. The Internet is the number one venue for free speech and freedom of expression on the planet today, and if the UN is given authority over the Internet it would only be a matter of time before free speech is severely cracked down on. Of course it would not happen immediately. At first, UN officials would likely mostly keep their promises of maintaining a "free and open Internet". But inevitably you would see them act to remove "terrorists" from the Internet, to crack down on "hate speech" and to repress any "politically incorrect" speech that is likely to insult anyone in any way. If you were censored or banned from the Internet, you could scream about the 1st Amendment all you want, but the United Nations is not bound by the 1st Amendment. The UN is not there to protect you or your freedoms. If the UN becomes "the government of the Internet", you can essentially kiss freedom of speech goodbye. If you do not believe that this could ever happen, you might want to pay close attention to a UN conference that is being held over in Dubai starting on Monday. (Read More....)
The people who brought you "The Great Swine Flu Scare Of 2009" now want to bring you "The Great Global Health Tax Of 2010". The World Health Organization is actually considering a plan to ask governments all over the globe to impose a global consumer tax on such things as Internet activity and everyday financial transactions like paying bills online.
Apparently the goal of such a plan would be to raise "tens of billions of dollars" which would then be used to "transfer" pharmaceutical research, development and manufacturing capabilities to the developing world.
Transfer them from where?
Places like the United States?
So let's get this straight.
According to the WHO global tax plan, they want to do the following three things....
#1) Take away research, development and manufacturing jobs from us and give them to the developing world at a time when we can least afford it.
#2) Give much more money and power to the idiots who brought us the global swine flu scare of 2009.
#3) Make us pay for all of it.
The World Health Organization's "Expert Working Group" is also thinking of asking wealthy nations such as the United States to set aside fixed portions of their gross domestic (Read More....)
For the environmental extremists attending the U.N. climate change summit in Copenhagen, fighting global warming is not just about reducing carbon emissions or promoting alternative energy. Rather, public documents released by some of the most important organizations represented at Copenhagen reveal an absolute obsession with population control and a bizarre belief by environmental extremists that population reduction is the "cheapest" way to achieve a reduction in carbon emissions. You see, to many of those gathered in Copenhagen, the math is simple. Less people = less carbon emitters. In fact, a carbon offset initiative launched by the Optimum Population Trust even allows people to offset their "carbon footprint" by making online payments to support "family planning" in poor countries. In other words, you can now be forgiven for your carbon "sins" by paying for a baby on the other side of the world to be killed.
As bizarre as this may seem, it is actually happening.
These new "population carbon offsets" are being offered by the Optimum Population Trust. The OPT calls itself "the leading think tank in the UK concerned with the impact of population growth on the environment". The truth is that the OPT does have some really big names associated with it. Just some of the world famous individuals involved in the Optimum Population Trust include Sir David Attenborough, Stanford Professor Paul (Read More....)
As the U.N. Copenhagen climate change summit begins today, prostitutes in that city are looking forward to doing a brisk business with government officials who are flying in from all over the world. However, things are not looking so great for anyone who would dare to protest the climate change summit. Authorities have prepared small metal cages for the "extended detention" of protestors. By publicizing the severe security measures being implemented ahead of time, summit organizers appear to be attempting to send this message to opponents: "Don't mess with us!"
Denmark is one of the growing number of countries where prostitution is actually legal. Instead of being called "prostitutes", they are known as "sex workers". You can almost hear thousands of world officials salivating as they arrive in Copenhagen anticipating a very productive and stimulating time away from their home countries.
But not everyone is thrilled. Copenhagen's mayor actually sent out postcards to 160 Copenhagen hotels urging summit delegates to "be sustainable - don't buy sex".
But since prostitution is legal in Denmark, there is not much the mayor can do to stop it. In fact, many of Copenhagen's "sex care workers" are reportedly offering free sex to anyone who can produce (Read More....)
There has been a very disturbing new trend among world leaders who are also "global warming" activists. Increasingly, these world leaders are openly discussing the need for "global governance" to fight "man-made global warming". To them it appears obvious that a global problem requires a global solution. In fact, the December summit in Copenhagen is being hailed by these world leaders as one of the most important moments in human history. They claim that if we do not act on a global level now to stop "climate change" that we will be facing a catastrophic future of unprecedented magnitude.
First of all, let's quickly deal with the ridiculous claims that man is causing global warming. The truth is that "global warming" is caused by the sun. A few years ago when the sun was experiencing record sunspot activity, the entire solar system experienced "global warming". Now that the sun has entered a period of very low sunspot activity the earth (and the rest of the solar system) is actually cooling.
But carbon dioxide levels continue to increase. If carbon dioxide was causing global warming temperatures should have continued to rise.
But they didn't.
In fact, scientists tell us that there have been periods when the earth has had much higher levels of carbon dioxide. It is one of the key components of life. The more carbon dioxide, the better crops do and the more life on earth thrives.
But (Read More....)
