70th Anniversary of the UN General Assembly LIVE UPDATES

As president Roosevelt reportedly explained to Anthony Eden, his vision of the United Nations organization included a four-power directorate that made all the more important decisions and a general assembly which was to meet once a year to let 'the smaller powers...blow off steam."

Orwell at the UN  -  by Michael Hudson


"In his Orwellian September 28, 2015 speech to the UN, President Obama said that if democracy had existed in Syria, there never would have been a revolt against Assad. By that, he meant ISIL. Where there is democracy, he said, there is no violence of revolution.

70th UNGA Day 2: Power Duels & Top Level Yawns

The tide is turning, it's great to watch, and a conservative Russian President has the wherewithal to coldly, carefully poke the hegemon in the eye and say, in front of all the world, "You are yesterday. Humanity will move forward with or without you."

It's really quite inspiring. I'd rather it was a socialist doing these things, but so be it. The contrast between the fake liberal that is Barak Obama, and the small "c" conservative, that is V. V. Putin, is remarkable.

The USA is a joke. Their best and brightest are in exile (Snowden), in jail, hounded into silence, marginalized, travelling the land like an incipient John the Baptist (Chris Hedges) etc. Who would have thunk it? This Empire will not end with a bang, but with a whimper, held in contempt by the global community, perhaps expelled from the UN one day, along with its attack dog Israel, scraping the shit off its face. About time.

The Sound Of Silence (and vid)


"Satan is on CNN. Furious Bibi tries to stare down UN for refusing to go to war like he wants. 'Creepy', 'Petulant', 'Pathetic', 'laughable and wierd."

This is what certain gutless wonder Canadian political parties toss candidates for criticizing.
