Secretary of State Antony Blinken
welcomes UN probe of ‘racism’ in US

Original Article

The United Nations—whose World Health Organization arm was just panned for its probe of the COVID-19 pandemic’s origins confined to guidelines set by the Chinese Communist Party—has been formally invited by the Biden administration to investigate “the scourge of racism, racial discrimination, and xenophobia” in the US, according to Secretary of State Antony Blinken. “As the President has repeatedly made clear, great nations such as ours do not hide from our shortcomings; they acknowledge them openly and strive to improve with transparency,” said Blinken in a statement released Tuesday. “It is in this context that the United States intends to issue a formal, standing invitation


Incredible. Maybe it's time to stop reading the news entirely, as I did during a stretch of the Klinton years. President Trump used normal procedures to try to right the ship, but our government and a large fraction of the stupefied masses are so deeply steeped in Marxism that he made little traction. Bulldozing the UN building would be a nice overture should Failed USA ever again have a president interested in our wellbeing as a nation.

The International Marxists, including the Biden junta, all agree: The USA is bad, and must pay. FTA: "In a global report issued last month sparked by Floyd's death, UN human rights chief Michelle Bachelet called on nations to 'start dismantling racism.' And earlier this month, Bachelet said that nations should 'fully fund… a wide range of reparations measures” to make amends for slavery, discrimination and colonial rule. The invitation also comes less than a year after the US endured a lashing on its civil rights record before the UN—getting scolded by the likes of China, Russia, Saudi Arabia and North Korea."

Name the problem ( "systemic racism ", it doesn't exist in the USA ) and then give away Americans freedoms and sovereignty to fix it . Dems/lefties really stink and are evil.

Oh stop the BS. Rightfully, and sometimes wrongfully, we judge one another. We judge people based on behavior, gender, age, wealth. religion, and yes, RACE. its how we interact with one another. Deal with it. It will never change. Race is being used to indoctrinate the American population into Communism. We are all racist, and we must be controlled. That's what Communism is all about.

Racism is the power that holds the Democrat party together, most if not all the racism in this country is directly from and for the Democrat Party. Some examples are the Congressional Black Cacus, NAACP, Chinese Communist Party and there are many more, all 100% racist. Even their names are racist.

The first piece of evidence which Tony "Winken" Blinken presented to the U.N. - - was a series of videos showing young black men beating up old Asian women. So - - we're off to a good start.

This is truly an outrage, and i am very angry. I'm angry because we have a traitor in the White House, a traitor an awful lot of stupid Americans voted for, a traitor who is supported by a crooked and venal and mendacious Dem Party and bureaucracy. I'm angry because stupid people exchanged an imperfect man but a man whose love for our country is true and deep for a man who is corrupt, perverted, feeble but fully aware that he's carrying out the wishes of our enemies. And I am angry at the Republican, the stupid ones, whose petty objections to style could override whatever remnants of patriotism remain in their duplicitous hearts to cause them to betray President Trump and the American people. And i am angry that Republicans en masse are not going to the Well and the Floor and coming out onto the steps of the Capitol and making strong protest to those pieces of excrement Biden and Blinken and their gang of evil-doers.

I would welcome a review of racism in this country if it were honest. But it won't be. It will be about whitey oppressing all those poor minorities. In reality, in the 21st century USA, most crimes of a racial nature are done by blacks. There, I said it. According to FBI statistics (hardly a white supremist source of data), in every racial group, if you are a victim of crime, the majority of the time it will be by someone of your same race. But for every racial groups except blacks, if you are attacked by someone outside of your race, it is most likely to be a black person. That is just the facts based on actual data. So lets address that "systemic racism"!!!

#10, Excellent comment. Have you noticed that democrats cannot cite one example of racism on the part of whites? Not one video with an example of racism against blacks. This was a problem for democrats until they stumbled on the concept of systemic racism. Now that is their bogeyman. They threw that blanket over white Americans and intend to keep it there regardless of its veracity. This allows them to create division over something does not exist. Clearly, evil is very clever and always ready with some catch phrase to create whatever they desire at the time. Until the soft weak Republicans in Washington fail to open their eyes to reality, we will be fighting a losing battle. Imagine for a moment what the atmosphere is this nation would be if we had courageous men and women who would fiercely do battle against the lies democrats create in order to divide us. We need truth tellers unafraid to confront these lies. What we don’t need and should outrage every American is a bunch of U.N. perverts who abuse women and children in the country’s they are supposed to help, come here with their arrogance and sanctimony and have the audacity to tell us how to treat anyone. They should clean up their own abusive history before they dare tell anyone anything. O’Biden has given our sovereignty away with his open border policies and now he wants to have this corrupt body tell us where they believe we are wrong which further weakens on our sovereignty. No thanks. Get the U.N. out of the U.S. and get the U.S. out of the U.N.

Most of the world hates us for the same reasons that many blacks hate the whites in America, because we are so successful when we take free rein and get busy producing. No other country can touch us but given a chance to tear America down, they will do so at the drop of a hat while accepting our money with the other hand. The struggling countries of the UN are thoroughly enjoying our current distress. Russia, China and Iran are openly rubbing their hands in glee. If American blacks could see how good they have it, they would get on board and join us in prosperity instead of whining about their imaginary problems while sticking that cup in front of our faces to have the social program funds and reparations dimes dropped into it. Blacks do not want to stand on their own they just want to be first in line when the goodies are passed out.

What the incredibly stupid Blinken is suggesting is that America let people like Macron, Johnson, Merkel and various other Euroweenies run the country whose ancestors left Europe to create. If European rule and judgement were all that good, the Mayflower would never have sailed and blacks crying "racism" all the time would still be in Africa.

"Great nations such as ours do not hide from our shortcomings;" but they also proclaim they are fully capable of solving their own internal problems without prodding and interference form bad faith outsiders.

Blinken is the stupidest idiot possible. Very close to Biden on that point. BTW, as for racism, people don't have to like you. They are free not to. If you don't like not being liked, you might consider changing your behavior, demeanor, ways, and other amendments that might make you more popular. Personally, I like not being liked, because that keeps people away and out of my business.

We Patriots are in fight to the death with the Communist Enemy. The Enemy knows exactly what they are doing, and they have little time to get it done before freedom-loving Patriots actively resist. We cannot wait for our politicians to grow a spine, or simply hope that our blessed Constitution will protect us. The Enemy aims to subjugate and eventually bury the Patriots who have worked all their lives, sacrificed for their families, obeyed our laws and respected the rights of others. We must resist and disrupt our Enemy at every opportunity, whether you be in government, the military, global corporations or at home. Take action so that we remain in the fight to do it over and over again. We must immediately take back what was stolen from us in the November 2020 election. It’s time that our Courts fear the Patriots more than the Enemy.

The Democrats' goal is to normalize and empower unelected global entities. It invites them to sit in judgment of the American people, not to empower us, but to condemn us. Americans have no duty to tolerate the abusive nonsense the "Democratic" Party so enjoys spewing at middle America. Remember, it is not the American people who invited illegal aliens from south of the border to come to the US "to be heard." Joe Biden himself did that. Where is the MSM, and why won't it tell us why Biden's message to Cubans fleeing oppression is to stay home? How is his administration's warning to Cubans that they will be sent back to their open air prison acceptable to the American people if they try to escape?

At least two of the six Australian states have reportedly changed the way they officially describe shark attacks.

The top federal prosecutor in Delaware decided to pause a criminal investigation of Hunter Biden months before the 2020 election to prevent the public from learning about it, according to a report. US Attorney David Weiss, appointed by former President Donald Trump, decided not to seek search warrants or issue grand jury subpoenas so as not to “alert the public to the existence of the case in the middle of a presidential election,” Politico reports.(Snip) The Biden campaign and Democrats tried to claim the documents were “Russian disinformation”—as Hunter’s former business partner came forward to corroborate The Post’s reporting and offer additional documentation that bolstered the story.

Democratic mega-donor Ed Buck allegedly lured men to his home to satisfy his twisted “party and play” sex fetish—sometimes personally injecting his victims with methamphetamine, prosecutors said this week at his trial. Buck, 66, was accused of being “obsessed” with the “party and play” encounters Wednesday in Los Angeles court, where he’s on trial for allegedly providing fatal drug doses to two men, running a drug den and persuading others to travel for prostitution.(Snip)Prosecutors claimed Buck had a “fetish” for paying black men he met online to use meth, sometimes to the point of unconsciousness. “Buck’s preference was to personally inject victims, and he pressured

From January to May, 711,784 migrants were encountered by Customs and Border Protection at the southern border–five times the amount during the same period in 2020–and the Biden administration is on track to encounter 1 million by the end of July.(Snip)The number of crossers already reported by CBP since the start of 2021 surpasses the population of several large U.S. cities, like Boston and Nashville.

Roughly 30 percent of illegal immigrants housed in federal detention centers at the border have refused the coronavirus vaccine, according to a report Thursday. There have been nine COVID deaths and 20,000 coronavirus cases among those detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Axios reported, citing numbers from the agency. ICE did not provide the exact number of illegal immigrants turning down a shot, but the 30 percent figure has been shared internally, the report said.(Snip)Public health officials blamed the high number of cases on the vaccine hesitancy shown by the illegal immigrants.

WASHINGTON — Two weeks after celebrating America’s near “independence” from the coronavirus, President Joe Biden is confronting the worrying reality of rising cases and deaths — and the limitations of his ability to combat the persistent vaccine hesitance responsible for the summer backslide. Cases of COVID-19 have tripled over the past three weeks, and hospitalizations and deaths are rising among unvaccinated people. While the rates are still sharply down from their January highs, officials are concerned by the reversing trendlines and what they consider needless illness and death. And cases are expected to continue to rise in coming weeks.

ROME — Pope Francis cracked down Friday on the spread of the old Latin Mass, reversing one of Pope Benedict XVI’s signature decisions in a major challenge to traditionalist Catholics who immediately decried it as an attack on the ancient liturgy. Francis reimposed restrictions on celebrating the Latin Mass that Benedict relaxed in 2007. The pontiff said he was taking action because Benedict’s reform had become a source of division in the church and been used as a tool by Catholics opposed to the Second Vatican Council, the 1960s meetings that modernized the liturgy. Francis issued a new law requiring individual bishops to approve celebrations of the old Mass

A Facebook Oversight Board member says free speech is “not an absolute human right,” and must be balanced against “other human rights” when deciding what content to censor. The board member, former Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning Schmidt, said “free speech is not an absolute human right.” “It has to be balanced with other human rights,” she said Thursday at a Politico Europe event. The 20-member Facebook Oversight Board was set up last year to allow corporate executives to claim distance from politically sensitive decisio

As the forensic audit in Maricopa County, Arizona, winds down, expectations are rising that the defects of the 2020 election will finally be addressed. A recent poll reports that "more than half" of Republicans expect the audit to bounce President Biden out of office. That's not going to happen. And that's not a bad thing. Fixing the 2020 election requires more than Biden has to offer. Real reform requires going after the people who put Biden in office.

Here are the biased numbers for the recent Economist-YouGov poll that gives Joe Biden a 49% approval rating. (snip) Dem (324) Republican (235) Independent (260) Ninety-nine more Democrats sampled vs. Republicans were included in the results. It is not hard to get the results you want if the polls are assembled in this way, and this is always the method with these polls. A total of 819 from 1,500 participants. Does that mean the rest were dumped because they are not registered to vote or affiliated with a party? Were their answers included in the reported percentages?

Officials in Australia are rebranding shark “attacks” as “a negative encounter” as experts argue the former had given the nautical predators a bad reputation not based on science. At least two of the six Australian states have reportedly changed the way they officially describe shark attacks. In New South Wales, the government’s shark reports now refer to shark “incidents” or “interactions,” and in Queensland, the state government refers to them as “a negative encounter,” Sky News reported.(Snip)Proponents argue the word “attack” has created a culture of fear around sharks, one often depicted in movies. “Sharks are very curious animals,” Leonardo Guida, a shark biologist

Any report compiled by special counsel John Durham "may not be as broad as we want it to be," warned a leading Republican congressman, who nevertheless expects more prosecutions. Rep. Devin Nunes, the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, made the observation as he assessed what remains to be seen of the inquiry into the origins and conduct of the Russia investigation. The long duration of the special counsel investigation has frustrated former President Donald Trump, who often asks about Durham's progress.
