(Just when you thought President Trump was out of amazing things to do!)
The U.S. is pulling its membership from the United Nation’s Human Rights Council, and cites alleged discrimination against Israel, one of America’s allies.
The U.S. Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, announced the decision this week following previous disputes with the organization over what she calls, “chronic anti-Israel bias,” according to new reports.
Most recently, the Ambassador was one of the few representatives opposing a measure which requested an official investigation into allegations accusing Israel of excessive force.
In December, Haley chastised members of the group for voting in favor of a proposed measure which would have condemned President Trump, regarding his move of the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
“The United States will remember in which it was singled-out for attack in the General Assembly, for the very act of expressing our right as a sovereign nation,” she said last year, regarding the President’s relocation of the U.S. embassy.

2. The following video is correct in its premise. Oz-Rita has been following German news closely and has felt for days that her government and Merkel herself could fall any hour.
(One of the issues of the EDL under Tommy Robinson was the clear and disgusting, even criminal double standards in law in favour of muslims and against any point of view that reflected British culture and people as they had always been. This is one of the finest examples of that I have seen so far. Imagine if someone dressed to indicate support of what is called, “A far right” position was to clobber a cop with a big stick that was clearly carried for dual purposes. A weapon and a walking stick. We all know it would be years of unpleasant custody inside. But this devout muslim who joined an existing fight gets no jail because the nature of the demonstration was objectionable to muslims. Well I have two words.)
4. Iran still uses a rational definition of feminism. In the West, its part of the cultural-Marxist attack strategy, where every person not a white-straight-male is supposed to form a civilization killing super majority that will be to the detriment of all constituent identities whether they know it or not.
Solidarity to what? the real feminists in Iran are confronting a brutal regime imposing the Hejab and here in the US, fake feminists are asking women to wear Hejab, that is a despicable act. pic.twitter.com/5admlkmYcV

5. The FBI probably need a full overhaul, or possibly dissolution and a new agency with checks and balances as part of the structure.
Thank you Richard, M., Wrath of Khan, Xanthippa, EB., and SO many more who have been fantastic about watching for news with meaning of important events and sending them in.
The US leaving the UN HRC is so reasonable it almost seems surreal. Most of the world is content with what seems rather than what is and get quite agitated when someone tries to inform them of the truth gap. One might expect that this is a historical constant.
So there will be sputum from people over this, because they refuse to look at who President Trump really is or what the UN HRC really does. But if Trump can survive this onslaught long enough the new meme will eventually take.
One of the previous GOP presidential candidates somewhere in the last 15 years suggested leaving the UN altogether and forming a new, League of Democratic Nations with the G8 + India and Brazil, if memory serves. It always struck me as a good idea in general.
More to come today.
