Iran’s Rouhani backs moving UN out
of New York to a ‘better’ country

Original Article

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Thursday that his country's delegation would vote for the United Nations headquarters to be moved out of New York if given the chance, in the latest sign of escalating tensions with the United States on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly. “If we’re ever asked, we will, of course, vote for it, for the United Nations headquarters to be transferred to a more secure and better country that does not have the narrow viewpoints that we have been witnessing,” he said in response to a question at a press conference. There appears to be no significant movement to move the U.N.

Comments:

Rouhani makes me laugh out loud with this incredibly stupid remark. Not that it would matter one bit where in the world the U.N. was housed, the membership will still vote the same. On the other hand, how many of these gold-bricking 'diplomats' would welcome a move out of NYC into, say, Karachi? Or Caracas? I bet they'd love Monaco, but no way would the Monacans allow it! How about Tehran?

Third world diplomats to the UN LOVE the US and all that it has to offer. They love the suits, the prestige, the large life and I hope they move HQ to some other country. US needs out of the UN.

#8 is correct (unfortunately). Those free loading leeches are not about to be moved away from the fancy restaurants, Broadway, posh apartments. They are not about to give up NYC and all the ways they have to p*** their country’s money away. Maybe after we re-elect Trump he can send the whole worthless outfit to some s******e primitive country.

Yes, please. And schedule your departure for 2024. That way, when Trump leaves the WH, he can then turn the building into a Trump Tower, and finally get something positive out of Turtle Island.

There are several uninhabited islands near Antarctica. Build a few barracks and send them South. I knew a man whose father had been his countries UN Ambassador. He told of unlimited extravagance and privilege during those years. Unfortunately there was a revolution in the home country and the family lost all power and wealth. And even their estates at home. From personal interest the son had earned a PhD in physics. So so he went to work in the US and became a citizen. That's how I met him.

An emotional Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib on Monday held back tears during a news conference as she and Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar condemned Israel’s recent decision to impose restrictions on visiting the country, with the Democrats calling for Congress to get involved. “We in the United States have a constructive role to play,” Omar said at the news conference in St. Paul, Minn. “We give Israel more than $3 million in aid every year. This is predicated on them being an important ally in the region, and the only democracy in the Middle East. But, denying a visit to duly elected members of Congress is not consistent with being an ally.”

The new president of El Salvador on Monday took responsibility for the June deaths of a father and daughter who drowned crossing the Rio Grande in a bid to reach the United States, saying the onus is on his government to make the country a safer place -- and one where migration is "an option, not an obligation." A photograph from the Mexican side of the river showing the body of Oscar Martinez and his daughter, Valeria, lying face down with Valeria's arms still wrapped around her father’s neck shocked the world late last month amid an already heated debate about illegal immigration in the US.

A clip unveiled by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) this week shows Michigan-based Shiite Imam Bassem al-Sheraa “educating” students on the role of “wife-beating.” According to the video, the imam tells the class at the Az-Zahraa Islamic Center in Detroit that when the Quran references such a physical act toward one’s wife, it is a "beating" that should be conducted without causing pain or any red markings; but as a reminder to the woman that she “misbehaved in cases when words (of admonishment) do not make her change her ways.”

Sharp was not present at the time of the incident, but the woman reported the couple to police and wrote down their license plate number.

A 12-year-old girl says three of her male classmates at a Virginia private school pinned her down and cut her dreadlocks, calling her hair “ugly” and “nappy.” The group of white sixth-grade boys ambushed Amari Allen during recess Monday, as she was about to use the slide on the playground at the Immanuel Christian School in Fairfax, Virginia, local outlets reported. “They said my hair was nappy and I was ugly,” Allen, who is African American, told News4. One of the boys covered Allen’s mouth and another held her hands behind her back, while the third cut her dreadlocks with a pair of scissors, she said.

Dear Democrats, I’m mad at you. I was raised a die-hard, bleeding-heart liberal. My grandmother was an Irish Catholic New Englander who worshipped JFK almost as much as Jesus. My dad and his nine siblings sang for the Kennedys at Hammersmith Farm. For decades, I was a loyal regular at your bar until suddenly you started ignoring me. You took my support for granted and dismissed my concerns, focusing instead on courting the young city hipsters with their scooters and their designer weed and their craft beers. You began overlooking pragmatic moderates and catering to loud extremists who favor rewriting the Constitution and accelerating our lurch towards socialism.

Chobe National Park, Botswana — Prince Harry says “no one can deny science” when it comes to climate change. He spoke Thursday during his visit to Botswana, the latest stop on his Africa tour with his wife, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, and their baby, Archie. Conservation is a major issue during the 10-day, multi-country trip that began this week in neighboring South Africa. Noting the global student climate strikes inspired by Swedish activist Greta Thunberg, the prince said that “it’s a race against time and one which we are losing.” He also called Botswana a place of “escapism” for him

In a suit filed in federal court on Tuesday, 26-year-old Shahin Indorewala maintains her interview for a junior management position with Fast Trak Management in Falls Church was going well—until she inquired about taking the breaks in exchange for a shorter lunch.

Hillary Clinton remains shackled to her lust for power and revenge, and now is signaling that she may enter the Democrats’ presidential contest when ex-Vice President Joe Biden withdraws and serves as the fall-guy for Ukraine's collusion with her 2016 presidential campaign. She realizes that her party’s frenzy to unseat President Trump will consume the ambition of the hapless halfwit to gain the Oval Office that rightfully belongs to her, as his familial dirty laundry is aired in an effort to find Trump impeachment fodder in Ukraine. Hillary is not committing to the race, but keeping that option very open.

The hand symbol began as a hoax by users of the website 4chan before turning into a popular trolling tactic, according to the Anti-Defamation League. By this year, it had evolved into a gesture embraced "in some circles as a sincere expression of white supremacy," the civil rights group said.

‘L’etat, c’est moi,” the Sun King is supposed to have said, “I am the state.” Louis XIV was one of the architects of modern dictatorship, and President Donald Trump likes more about his style than merely his taste in armchairs. President Trump, in a fashion unbecoming the chief administrative officer of a republic — which is all he is — habitually confuses himself and the state. One example among many: President Trump, asked whether his trade war might hurt his standing among U.S. farmers, who are paying the price for it, answered: “They can’t be too upset, because I gave them $12 billion, and I gave them $16 billion this year.”
