UN passed the internet bill that tyrants wanted to control information flow

The usual tyrants and scumbags that all but guarantee the UN, the most corrupt organization on this planet, will remain in the business of oppressing humanity while pretending to want to do good, passed yet another treaty that will allow governments to control what the sheep can find out. At least the treaty passed with hefty opposition, indicating that some nations know better.

“I say to the 89 states that signed today the treaty, thank you,” said Mohamed al-Ghanim, chairman of the World Conference on International Telecommunication (WICT-12), organised by the ITU in Dubai.

Fifty-five countries did not sign the treaty, he said. “I hope that the 55 states that said do not want to sign the treaty, or need to hold consultations, to think again,” about the treaty that enters effect in January 2015, said Ghanim, who is the chief of the UAE’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority.

The treaty that is the first update to the International Telecommunication Regulations (ITRs) agreed in 1988, stirred controversy as Internet operators, activists and countries led by the United States objected to reference to the Internet deemed to be paving the way for government control.

The biggest proponents of the treaty are not accidentally countries like China and Russia, with the other holdovers from the sphere of influence they held in the good old days of the world communism movement, taking up their cause. They want the ability to shut off the free flow of information, because nothing undermines an oppressive and tyrannical state more than the free flow of information. Of course the corrupt UN argued that since there was no specific language allowing just that, the treaty was not doing such a thing, but the facts speak differently.

“This conference was not about the Internet control or Internet governance, and indeed there are no provisions on the Internet,” the ITU secretary general told participants at the signing ceremony.

The United States on Thursday slammed the treaty saying that the proposed text opened the door to government regulation of the Internet.

We would be fools to accept their pretense that because the treaty doesn’t specifically say it allows this, but then goes forth to set up things precisely in such a way that would allow governments to censor the internet, that these fuckers wouldn’t do just that. The only thing holding them back from easily censoring the internet is the fact they do not have the ability to do so easily or completely, and anyone that believes that once they have the means to do that they wont, simply because the UN treaty doesn’t spell it out, is a fucking moron or a lying moron.

I do have to say that I am surprised the US was one of the countries to object to this considering the people in charge. Then again, they do own the LSM and they can censor the interent if they want to – since they do control the infrastructure – so for them it isn’t a big problem.

The child of the AGW cultists is already delivered!

Scientific American, a publication I subscribed to when younger and ravenously read in my pursuit of knowledge and information in my younger years, when completely drawn and consumed by the world of science, was one of the main reasons I went to school and studied engineering. Of course, as they began shilling for AGW over a decade ago, publishing one dumb article after another that pushed a political agenda and leftist one government end goal, with consensus, manipulated models, and other such pseudo-science that completely ignored or dismissed relevant information so they could drive the narrative as their proof, I dropped my subscription. I have not regretted that choice, considering the revelations of how corrupt the cult of AGW and those that helped them push their agenda have shown to be, despite the LSM blackout and/or massive attempts at damage control, and I feel vindicated that dropping that subscription was a wise move, since Scientific American has been a willing participant in that campaign of pro-AGW lies.

As most people are wising up and support for the AGW cult’s plans and schemes dwindles, now that more and more of the exaggerations about the dangers of AGW are coming out, and support only remains amongst the true believers and the ones that still want to push the political agenda that fueled the AGW cult, the leftists at Scientific American seem to be moving on to the next narrative to push the same old agenda: bio diversity.

Governments from more than 90 countries have agreed to establish an independent panel of scientists to assess the very latest research on the state of the planet's fragile ecosystems. The decision, which will create a body akin to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), was made in Panama City this weekend, after years of negotiations.

The Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) will be responsible for producing international scientific assessments on issues such as ocean acidification and pollination, to help policy-makers to tackle the global loss of biodiversity and degradation of ecosystems.

“I hope that this body will allow biodiversity to be better taken into account in sustainable-development strategies, as the IPCC has for climate change over the past 20 years,” says Irina Bokova, director-general of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), based in Paris.

The themes of the panel's assessments, along with its overall budget, are to be decided at the newly established body's first plenary meeting, which is scheduled for 2013. But the IPBES will begin work immediately on reviewing existing assessments — such as 2005's global Millennium Ecosystem Assessment — to analyze their scope and impact on policy.

No freaking way! Another UN panel populated by a bunch of credentialed marxists and pseudo-marxists hell bent on yet again finding that the answer to some new or old calamity, or series of calamitous events, are caused by man’s use of energy, will soon tell us that the only solution or answer, yet again, lies with a big one world collectivist government, with the power to control access to energy and people’s freedoms through some massive regulation and taxation, while enhancing the power of these elite and the governments they actually shill for. Color me shocked. And if you doubt this is the plan, I point you to this revelation in the Scientific American fluff piece:

Governments will make the final decisions as to which scientists will sit on the panel, but scientific bodies such as DIVERSITAS will be invited to make nominations. Selection procedures have yet to be agreed. “It will be key to have a selection process for nominations based on the highest scientific credentials,” says Larigauderie.

So, the same people that have the most to gain from putting the shills that will declare that without letting governments wield more power and limit people’s access to energy and thus freedom, and have been the big financiers and stakeholders in the AGW cult scam, are now in charge of this project? What could go wrong, or for that matter, be different from what was done to abuse the AGW narrative? We need to save those fragile ecosystems after all!

The problem these shysters had with AGW – that everyone not compromised by the want for their end goal, you know the watermelons that pretended they were concerned about saving Gaia, when what they really wanted was that collectivist expansion of power, clearly saw through – is going to be the same here. The AGW cultists’ argument was destroyed by the fact that temperatures and climate changed. It varied throughout Earths 4.5 billion years of life, long before man and his gas guzzling CO2 producing factories and SUVs came on the scene. There had been warming and warmer times, much warmer I add, both in the immediate and far away past, as there had been cooling and much cooler times. And man had nothing to do with any of that. The sun, the oceans, and a climate system they still lack massive understanding off its inner workings and had been badly modeled, on purpose I add to produce the lies they needed to frighten the rubes, all where ignored, manipulated, or explained away to pretend that this phenomenon was new, caused by man, and could only be stopped by collectivism writ large.

The ecosystem champions will face the same problem. The fact is that Mother Nature is a cruel thing: ecosystems come and go. Adapt or perish is the law of life. There are more extinct species and systems than there are species and systems around now, and that’s not by coincidence. I am not arguing that we should try to preserve some species or ecosystems, but I am going to go bat shit when these morons tell us we need to preserve everything as is, blame man for it all, then tell us the answer to this dilemma is the same crap they wanted when lying about AGW. And have no doubt that no matter how they camouflage it, the end goal remains the same. Here is to hoping this bullshit dies long before it gains any traction, costs us billions, if not trillions, eats up another decade or two of time, while governments everywhere steal more wealth and freedoms under the guise of saving us from ourselves, and harms as many as the AGW lies have. Unfortunately it will not be the last attempt by these shysters to sell their snake oil and I will not be surprised to see Scientific American at the forefront of selling those lies either.

Collectivists suck.

They smell weakness…

The world’s biggest gang of Knaves, thieves, child molesters, murder lovers, and murderers is at it again. The assholes that are defending Assad’s efforts to keep the Syrians oppressed, while killing thousands, now are demanding Americans be put on trial for the Koran burning incident that was used by members of the “religion of peace” to commit violence and murder infidels. Yeah sure, we will get right on it. As soon as you also demand that we prosecute every foreigner that burned an American flag or beheaded an American citizen, you assholes. The world truly doesn’t deserve the peace Americans have sacrificed to give it. And have no doubt that it is Americans that have prevented the scumbags of the world from dong the usual butchering that history clearly shows us is the human condition.

Frankly, we need to be demanding the Afghanis and the UN both kiss or ass for trying to make things better for them. We should stop trying to be liked and get on with the business of being feared. The scum of the earth will never appreciate or like those that are ahead of them, but they sure as hell will behave if they fear you. Ask the western media if you want proof on how they pretend to be though on religion, but seem to avoid doing that one the one needing it the most. And that is because they fear the insane bastards that belong to that religion. Obama needs to tell them to kiss his ass, not appologize.

Whither Syria?

Syria is a disaster right now, with an oppressive government brutalizing and killing people every day to maintain its loathsome rule. We’ve pulled our embassy and, but for China and Russia, we would have gotten a UN resolution condemning the violence (for all the good that would do; i.e., none). But that’s not enough for some people. There are increasing calls for us to get involved in the situation.

It probably won’t surprise anyone here, but I think this would be a bad idea. The situation is simply appalling; the violence unimaginable. There are videos and images out there that are truly shocking — and I’m difficult to shock. But I don’t see that any good can come of our involvement. It would rally support to the regime, harm the opposition and, even if it worked, not guarantee a worse outcome, as we’re seeing in Egypt.

Perhaps covert help might be acceptable. But I think we need to continue to stay out of this one. Let Russia and Iran burn themselves out supporting these creeps. Their time is coming … all the faster if we stay out.

Worse idea nominee for 2012?

I guess with the opportunities to steal trillions they where hoping the whole AGW cult thing would provide now waning, and waning faster than Obama’s ability to give up class warfare rhetoric, the coterie of robber barons at the UN sees the need to fill the void left by this failed plan. Don’t worry, there is a plan B! Willie Sutton became famous for the urban legend that attributes a quote to him answering “Because that’s where the money is”, when prompted for the reason he robbed banks. It sure looks like the crooks at the UN took that advice to heart:

NEW YORK — Outside the United Nations headquarters, hundreds of people were shouting and waving banners Tuesday that read “China and Russia – No Veto.” These people wanted support from the Security Council of the U.N. to oust the President of Syria, Bashar al-Assad.

Inside the U.N., another group of civil society leaders demanded a basic level of social security as they promoted a “social protection floor” at a preparatory forum for the Commission on Social Development, which began Feb. 1.

The focus of the forum was “universal access to basic social protection and social services.”

“No one should live below a certain income level,” stated Milos Koterec, President of the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations. “Everyone should be able to access at least basic health services, primary education, housing, water, sanitation and other essential services.”

These services were presented at the forum as basic human rights equal to the rights of “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

The money to fund these services may come from a new world tax.

Right! About the only organization on this planet that makes the corrupt bureaucracies running most African or ME nations, just to name a couple of corruption friendly power centers, where bureaucrats consider it part of their compensation package to steal as much as they can from whomever, and whenever they can, look like petty theft cases is the UN. And speaking of Syria, how many chairs does Syria hold in the UN? Don’t they even have one on the human rights commission?

This isn’t just a bad idea, it is beyond evil and stupid. The UN is a den of thieves and criminals, with the worlds vilest people getting to pretend they are decent. Frankly if I was one of the world’s poor I would start running. In practice most of the people from the UN are better at stealing stuff, molesting kids, and causing misery in general. The price the world and these poor people will have to pay so these demons masquerading as angels can make themselves look like they care, while they run all the way to the bank with the money they plan to steal, is too high.

The Palestinian Push

The Palestinian Authority is pushing for recognition as a full state by the UN. They are a few votes shy of forcing the US to either accept it or veto it.

While I support the existence of a Palestinian state, eventually, I think full statehood is a bad idea, partly for reasons outlined by Fareed Zakaria:

At the end of the day, there is only one way you’re going to get a Palestinian state. And that’s if the Israelis agree to it. They have the land; they have the guns; they have the money. Palestinians may regard it as deeply unfair, and I understand that. But it is the world that we live in. The only way they’re going to get a Palestinian state is to engage directly with the Israelis.

And the only way they are going to engage with the Israelis is to get control of their own damn country, especially Gaza. Israel can not put up with being rocketed on a periodic basis. The push for full statehood is mostly a push to further isolate Israel, rather than work with them.

And that’s the key point here. The Palestinians have basically ignored every olive branch for the last 90 years. And, for all their rhetoric, the Arab nations don’t really want a Palestinian nation either. Jordan and Egypt happily occupied and oppressed areas that were supposed to be Palestinian and much of the territory that is supposed to be Palestine is still owned by Jordan, who haven’t even hinted at complying the UN mandate of … 1948. This isn’t really about a Palestinian state, which could have been created anytime in the last six decades. This is about cutting out Israel. This is about the Palestinian Authority getting their country without having to abandon their genocidal intentions.

Obama, to his credit, is siding with Israel. The indications are that he will either call for a year long “study” to delay things or veto it. France is playing their usual “the dog at my homework” game and supporting giving non-member state status. Britain seems likely to align with us. And everyone is trying to make sure this doesn’t come to a head in the Security Council.

We’ll see what happens. I haven’t been happy with Israel’s behavior lately. And at least part of the reason previous deals failed was because Ehud Barak and Ehud Olmert were undermined by their own government. But we can’t agree to this transparent ploy to create a nation that is effectively at war with an ally. Thankfully, our Administration understands that.

Steamrolling Hama … And The UN

Remember when Bill Clinton bombed Iraq because he wanted to do it before Ramadan in order to not offend Muslim sensibilities? (Muslim sensibilities apparently being fine with having Ramadan amidst the rubble). Well, yeah, funny story. Turns out the evil slimeballs running Syria don’t have that rule and are rolling through Hama, slaughtering civilians left, right and center. We’re not doing anything about it and, even if we could, we probably shouldn’t. Apart from putting a smart bomb up Assad’s ass — which might not be the worst idea — I don’t see that we can do anything other than burn money and kill people for no readily explained reason.

But, the UN has now moved into action and announced that will not take this lying down!

In its first substantive action on the uprising in Syria, the UN security council has condemned human rights violations and use of force against civilians by Syrian authorities.

Prompted by an intensification of the three-month-old bloody crackdown against anti-government protests, the statement was agreed after three days of hard bargaining. It ‘condemns widespread violations of human rights and the use of force against civilians by the Syrian authorities’. Syria’s neighbour Lebanon has dissociated itself from the text.

What’s notable is what the UN decided not to do. They didn’t call for a weapons embargo or for Assad to step down. They didn’t call for outside intervention. They just said they didn’t like what was going on. It’s like Assad used the wrong fork at dinner.

My UN sources inform me that if Assad does not stop greasing the treads of his tanks with children, they will be very very angry with him and will write him a letter telling him how angry they are.

By Their Friends Will You know Them.

You may have noticed — Syria is engaged in brutal crackdown on its own people.  So what is the appropriate response to this?  Well, if you’re the UN, it’s obvious, isn’t it?

The brutal crackdown by Syrian President Bashar Assad may finally be getting the attention of world leaders — but apparently not enough to stop Syria from becoming the newest member of the U.N. Human Rights Council.

And despite calling for an independent investigation into the crackdown, which has left hundreds dead, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon apparently won’t do much about blocking Syria’s path to the human rights group.

This is nothing new, of course. The UN Human Rights Council has been littering itself with thugs, pugs, shitwits and halfwits for a long time now.

Well at least, we can rely on the leftists to … oh:

“From here we greet president Bashar al-Assad,” [Hugo] Chavez said, after witnesses reported that Syrian troops backed by tanks had rolled into the town of Daraa, the epicenter of recent anti-regime protests, killing at least 25 people.

“Terrorists are being infiltrated into Syria and producing violence and death — and once again, the guilty one is the (Syrian) president, without anyone investigating anything,” said Chavez.

He gave no further details to support his claims.

Chavez, a close Assad ally in Latin America, criticized the “imperial madness” of the international community which, according to him, seeks to attack Syria under the pretext of defending its people.

“They re starting to say: Let s see if we sanction the government, we re going to freeze their assets, we ll blockade them, throw bombs on them, in order to defend the people.

“Wow, what cynicism. But that s the empire, it s imperial madness,” he said.

These are two institutions — the UN and Chavez — that enjoy enormous popularity in varying parts of the left. And as the death tolls climbs, one is rewarding, the other actively supporting the oppressive regime. Will we seen Sean Penn break from Hugo the Horrible over this? Will we see the Democrats demand we give less power to the UN HRC?

Is there an echo in here?
