(UN Photo) (CNSNews.com) – Canada and Australia have confirmed that they, like the United States, will not be participating in the United Nations’ commemoration later this year of the so-called Durban process, an “anti-racism” initiative that has been plagued by controversy since its launch with the World Conference Against Racism two decades ago. Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced Thursday that his government would not attend the event, planned in New York during the high-level opening of the U.N. General Assembly session in September, citing the singling out of Israel. “We will not associate Australia with one-sided and contentious language that singles out Israel or an event that champions such ...

Two of the wealthiest men in the world, Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos and Microsoft CEO Bill Gates. (File photo STAN HONDA/AFP via Getty Images) "There are few ways in which a man can be more innocently employed than in getting money," is an insight the famed biographer James Boswell attributed to Samuel Johnson. Clients of the late Bernie Madoff, however, might take issue. Over four decades, Madoff, acclaimed as the greatest fraudster of them all, ran a Ponzi scheme that swindled 40,000 people, including his closest friends, out of $65 billion. But if "getting money" is among the most innocent of callings, America has more than its fair share of the goodly people who excel at it. According to Forbes's 35th annual ranking of billionaires, last year witnessed a population explosion. Some ...

“We cannot rely purely on defenses – everyone knows this. The Iranians know this. No defense system is 100%, and with nuclear weapons, less than 100% is as good as nothing – especially with a country like Israel.” By Atara Beck, World Israel News Elliot Chodoff, a political and military analyst specializing in the Middle East and the global war on terrorism, led an Honest Reporting trip to the Syrian border recently, where he discussed, among other topics, the Iranian threat. “You have to be incredibly naive or have an outstanding supply of hallucinogenic drugs to believe that the Iranians are not trying to get nuclear weapons. The question is, How do you stop them?” Chodoff said. “We cannot rely purely on defenses – everyone knows this. The Iranians know this. No defense system is ...

Iowa’s Senate on Wednesday passed a bill that would limit local governments and businesses from requiring that residents to show CCP virus “vaccine passports” as proof of immunisation to enter an area or receive a service. The measure was passed 32-16 by state senators in a vote and it now heads to Gov. Kim Reynolds’ (R) desk to be signed into law. The legislation sets out that state contracts and grants will be denied to governments and local businesses if they require residents to show that they have been vaccinated against COVID-19, the disease caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus. It bans “the mandatory disclosure of whether a person has received a vaccination for COVID-19, disqualifying certain entities from receiving state grants or contracts,” excluding health care ...
