“The pope’s blessing of the World Government Summit was especially bizarre considering that in 2017, the event took place under the shadow of a replica of the Roman arch in front of the pagan Temple of Ba’al. The monument to the demonic idol, who is frequently referenced in the Bible, originally stood in Palmyra, Syria, a city known in the Bible as Tadmore. Among other concerns, this false pagan god demanded child sacrifices and other horrors that outraged the God of the Bible. While a number of replicas were planned, the very first was prominently displayed at the 2017 World Government Summit, attracting fierce criticism and deep concern among religious scholars — especially in light of the “World Government” motif.
As in previous years, some celebrities showed up to lecture humanity about the alleged need to submit to global governance and sustainable development to supposedly save the planet from humanity. Actor Harrison Ford (shown), for instance, went on a tirade against “nationalism” and “isolationism” after a bizarre segment in which he pretended to speak for “nature.” “I could give a damn with or without humans, I’m the ocean,” Ford said, pretending to be “nature” while speaking in a strange voice. “I covered this entire planet once, and I can always cover it again.” It was not clear whether he intended to refer to the biblical flood of Noah’s time or some other period during which he believes the oceans may have covered the entire planet.”
“Rumours about why the plane came down were fuelled by no less a figure than former US president Harry Truman. He told reporters two days after Hammarskjöld’s death that the UN leader “was on the point of getting something done when they killed him. Notice that I said ‘when they killed him.’”
Setting realistic expectations:
““By now, most member nations of the U.N. know that Donald Trump, the leader of the most powerful nation on earth, is a troubled man with a disordered mind,” he added. “He is a proven liar, a compulsive braggart and a thoroughly unpredictable chief executive. These are not the traits normally associated with the individual who runs one of the greatest democracies on the planet.”
“It is clear that Trump intends to focus all of his energies in his U.N. appearances on condemning Iran, using the presidency of the Security Council as his base of attack,” Schlesinger added. “He openly plans to step into a hornet’s nest of opposition from practically all the members of the Council.””
“A Facebook spokeswoman said the company’s efforts to fact-check video and photos will rely on technology but also human reviewers who work for groups certified by an organization called the International Fact-Checking Network.”
“Mr Al-Hussein suggested that Facebook should be regulated by international human rights law, instead of by national governments.”
“Google is planning to launch a censored version of its search engine in China that will blacklist websites and search terms about human rights, democracy, religion, and peaceful protest, The Intercept can reveal.”
If it was Obama’s idea, why has the media been pushing against Trump so hard?
“Now that the smoke has cleared from the NATO summit meeting, the most tangible result is apparent: President Trump advanced President Barack Obama’s initiative to keep the allies on track to shoulder a more equitable share of NATO’s costs. Mr. Trump even signed on to a tough statement directed at Russia. For once he saw eye to eye with his predecessor,” the Times wrote in its own editorial.
“She said she is not certain if the non-citizen voter registration can be kept private from the federal government because all voting records are public information. She added that the voting records should be open to the public to ensure the non-citizen voters are legitimate people.
“I think in this case in particular, what is very risky is that we don’t know where this president will go,” she said. “Are there risks involved? Absolutely. But quite frankly, there are risks involved for all of us with the Trump Administration,””
“Bono said he just came back from Canada and praised Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as “a remarkable leader who’s put together the most diverse Cabinet on the planet.””
Not, like, initiating a full-scale manipulation of the stratosphere next week, but at least looking into the idea. “It’s very important that we understand what our tools are,” he says. “What options do we have? How much risk is there?”
The options are few and the risks murky. Take, for instance, sulfur seeding. The idea is to inject sulfur dioxide into the lower stratosphere, where it turns into sulfur aerosol that reflects light back into space. Problem is, just last month researchers released a study showing that if you injected the stuff into the Northern Hemisphere, you might reduce hurricanes in the Atlantic—and kick off a drought in north-central Africa in the process.
