UN Admits Botched Ebola Outbreak Response: ‘Traditional Containment Methods Don’t Work With POROUS Borders’

“Failed to see some fairly plain writing on the wall.”

Add this incompetency to the mile high stack of valid arguments in favor of the U.S. defunding and withdrawing from the U.N.
Via the Associated Press:

LONDON (AP) — The World Health Organization has admitted that it botched attempts to stop the now-spiraling Ebola outbreak in West Africa, blaming factors including incompetent staff and a lack of information.

Nearly everyone involved in the outbreak response failed to see some fairly plain writing on the wall,” WHO said in a draft internal document obtained by The Associated Press, noting that experts should have realized that traditional containment methods wouldn’t work in a region with porous borders and broken health systems.

The U.N. health agency acknowledged that, at times, even its own bureaucracy was a problem. It noted that the heads of WHO country offices in Africa are “politically motivated appointments” made by the WHO regional director for Africa, Dr. Luis Sambo, who does not answer to the agency’s chief in Geneva, Dr. Margaret Chan.

Dr. Peter Piot, the co-discoverer of the Ebola virus, agreed in an interview Friday that WHO acted far too slowly, largely because of its Africa office.
……
Piot also questioned why it took WHO five months and 1,000 deaths before the agency declared Ebola an international health emergency in August. [...]

Ate you listening Obama? Nah, I didn’t think so.

Fjordman’s: Defeating Eurabia –The Third Islamic Jihad –The European Union’s ‘‘Civilization of [Forced] Dhimmitude’’ (In Full)

The fall of Western civilization from within.

Suicide_of_the_West-D_T_Devareaux

“Former Europeans who fought against Jihad fought for a number of things: Their religion, their culture and their nation. EU federalists and Eurabians are deliberately suppressing all of these instincts in their quest to create a New Man and weed out aggression. However, because they have wrongly identified the nation state as the root cause of all evil, they are suppressing not just aggressive nationalism, but defensive patriotism. And since some of the Muslims have actually become even more aggressive in response to what they perceive as our nihilism, the Eurabians have suicidally disarmed their own people, literally and metaphorically, and put them up for slaughter.” — Fjordman (Defeating Eurabia)

“The third Jihad started with the oil embargo, the influx of Saudi petrodollars and the beginnings of Eurabia and muslim immigration to the West in the 1960s and early 70s. During the third Jihad, Leftists all over Europe seem to be opening the gates of Europe from within. “You want to conquer Europe? That’s ok. Just vote for us and help us get rid of capitalism and eradicate the Christian heritage of Europe, and we’ll let you in. In the meantime, you can enjoy some welfare goodies, and we will ban opposition to this undertaking as racism and hate speech.”

VIDEO! France24: Hamas Rocket Launchers RIGHT NEXT To @UNRWA Facility & Densely Populated Civilian Areas! (8/6/14)

August 6, 2014 at 11:22 am

france24 hamas rocket launch pad near densely populated civilian area aug 6 2014

france24 hamas rocket launch pad near un building aug 6 2014

France24 Exclusive:

FRANCE 24 has exclusive footage of a Hamas rocket launching pad that appears to prove the militant group has been firing from areas heavily populated with civilians.

Correspondent Gallagher Fenwick says the site, in Gaza City, is some 50 metres [538 ft] from a hotel where the majority of international media is staying, and just 100 metres [1,076 ft] from a UN building.

“This type of setup is at the heart of the debate,” says Gallagher. “The Israeli army has repeatedly accused the Palestinian militants of shooting from within densely populated civilian areas and that is precisely the type of setup we have here.”

The launching pad is also where the FRANCE 24 team had a close call last week. During a live cross to the Paris studio, a rocket was fired overhead, forcing Gallagher and his crew to take cover.

Why doesn’t Hamas use sparsely populated areas from which to launch its rockets and build its tunnels?” BECAUSE The UNRWA (‘United Nations Relief and Works Agency’) IS Hamas -It’s time to defund the UNRWA.

Article IV, section 4 of the Constitution of the United States clearly states: “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion

In the “spirit of shared responsibility”?! For decades the problem has always been that the corrupt incompetent leaders of Mexico and Central America (whose pockets are lined with MILLIONS of dollars of US aid) have NEVER taken RESPONSIBILITY for their OWN?!

this is the government the founders warned us about(The Hill) –President Obama and Vice President Biden will meet with the presidents of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador on July 25, the White House announced on Friday.

Obama and Biden will meet with President Otto Pérez Molina of Guatemala, President Salvador Sánchez Cerén of El Salvador and President Juan Hernández of Honduras, to discuss the recent surge of migrants across the U.S. border.

In the meeting, the leaders will discuss how the governments are “cooperating to promote safe, legal, and orderly migration” between the countries “in a spirit of shared responsibility” …

Obama (along with his below the border counterparts) are engaged in the systematic human trafficking of illegal aliens across our southern border. They are guilty of consciously and intentionally exporting/importing poverty, disease and crime from the 3rd world hell holes into the US.

Via Drudge: Feds consider letting Hondurans into USA without making trek through Mexico

[....] If approved, the plan would direct the government to screen thousands of children and youths in Honduras to see if they can enter the United States as refugees or on emergency humanitarian grounds. It would be the first American refugee effort in a nation reachable by land to the United States, the White House said, putting the violence in Honduras on the level of humanitarian emergencies in Haiti and Vietnam, where such programs have been conducted in the past amid war and major crises.

Critics of the plan were quick to pounce, saying it appeared to redefine the legal definition of a refugee and would only increase the flow of migration to the United States. Administration officials said they believed the plan could be enacted through executive action, without congressional approval, as long as it did not increase the total number of refugees coming into the country.

……

Among the factors surrounding the decision are how many people in Honduras would be eligible to apply for the program, and how many would probably be approved.

The proposal, prepared by several federal agencies, says the pilot program under consideration would cost up to $47 million over two years, assuming [ONLY] 5,000 applied and [ONLY] about 1,750 people were accepted. If successful, it would be adopted in Guatemala and El Salvador as well.

It is unclear how the administration determined those estimates, given that since Oct. 1 more than 16,500 unaccompanied children traveled to the United States from Honduras alone.

Children would be interviewed by American immigration employees trained to deal with minors, and a resettlement center would be set up in the Honduran capital, Tegucigalpa, with assistance from international organizations like the International Organization for Migration.

……

Stacie Blake, the director of government relations for the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, an advocacy group, said the processing of potential refugees in Central America could be handled by the United States or by the United Nations, which makes refugee determinations in many other countries.

(Fox) –At the State Department briefing Thursday afternoon, spokesman Jen Psaki would not officially confirm the recording was authentic but went on to say that Nuland has since apologized to her E.U. counterparts.

Asked if she believed it was the recording of a real telephone call, Psaki said, “I didn’t say it was inauthentic. I think we can leave it at that.”

Although we will not confirm that it was her she has apologized to the EU. We will not say whether the audio was authentic, but we are also not saying that is is inauthentic.

Obama To Name Samantha ‘R2P Military Invasion Of Israel’ Power As UN Ambassador, Susan ‘Face Of Benghazi Coverup’ Rice As National Security Advisor [Updated]

June 5, 2013 at 8:24 am

Watch your back Israel. Obama has been setting the stage, and this appointment is but the latest of his anti-Israel maneuvers.

backstabbersWASHINGTON (AP) –A White House official says President Barack Obama will name former aide Samantha Power as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

Power will replace Susan Rice, who will take over as Obama’s national security adviser. The official says Obama will announce both appointments from the White House Wednesday afternoon.

Power is a longtime Obama adviser who worked on his 2008 presidential campaign and ran the human rights office in the White House. She left the administration in February but was considered the favorite to replace Rice at the U.N. [...]

It appears that being the face of the Obama Regime’s Benghazi coverup has been quite lucrative for Susan Rice.

BTW Samantha Power’s other half is Cass “Nudge” Sunstein

 

Update: Fox News’ Tod Starnes shares his pithy thoughts:

I do not see restful sleep coming for a long time.

Most notably the Benghazi Four and their loved ones.

No. But I’d take it a step further by saying that Obama is intentionally destabilizing the world.

Disgraceful! U.N. ‘Human Rights Council’ Honors Venezuelan Tyrant Chavez With Minute Of Silence –Venezuelans In US Cheer His Death

March 6, 2013 at 11:57 am
Obama-Chavez

Kindred spirits: Obama and Chavez in 2009 at the Summit of the Americas in Trinidad and Tobago.

The UN; teeming with dangerous anti-American clowns.

(Reuters) – The United Nations’ main human rights forum observed a minute’s silence on Wednesday for the late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez whose record it has often criticized over the years.

The U.N. Human Rights Council has voiced repeated concerns about freedom of expression, lack of independence of the judiciary, restrictions on activists, and arbitrary detentions in Venezuela under Chavez who died on Tuesday.

The ambassador of Cuba – which has declared three days of mourning for its ally Chavez – led diplomats in Geneva in observing the minute’s silence.

“On behalf of the Latin American and Caribbean states, we wish to express our deep solidarity with the people and government of Venezuela, particularly the family members and friends of Commandante Chavez,” Ambassador Anayansi Rodriguez Camejo said.

“Chavez was key in Latin America’s advance towards its second independence. He worked tirelessly not only for his people, but for the betterment of the nations of Latin America and the Caribbean,” she said.

See: “We believe that organized bolivarian criminal groups within the Chávez administration have subtracted around $100 billion out of the nearly $1 trillion in oil income made by PDVSA since 1999.”

“Chavez has not died, he didn’t enter history yesterday, he entered history a decade ago when he began the Bolivarian Revolution and the struggle for real Latin American integration,” she said.

Swiss Ambassador Alexandre Fasel, one of the Council’s vice presidents, said: “We reiterate on behalf of the Council our condolences to the people and government of Venezuela at the death of Hugo Chavez.”

Meanwhile freedom loving Venezuelans in the U.S. CHEERED the death of Chavez.

Manny Garcia DORAL, Fla. (AP) — Venezuelans in the U.S. cheered and expressed cautious optimism that new elections will bring change to their homeland after the death of President Hugo Chavez.

“My hope is that Venezuela will become a free country once again,” said Elizabeth Gonazalez, 52, who wore a smiley face sticker on her sweater with the words, “Venezuela without Chavez.”

A jubilant celebration broke out in the Miami suburb of Doral late Tuesday after word spread of the death of the 58-year-old leftist. Many dressed in caps and T-shirts in Venezuela’s colors of yellow, blue and red.

He’s gone!” dozens in the largely anti-Chavez community chanted.
……
The restaurant El Arepazo is at the heart of the community and hundreds of Venezuelans gathered at its tables to watch news broadcasts of the death coverage while getting their fill of corn flour patties called arepas.

A large number of professionals and others left their country beginning after Chavez became president in 1999. Many did not agree with his socialist government, became frightened of soaring crime or simply sought better fortunes abroad.

“This is a relief, frankly,” said Maria Teresa van der Ree, 81, president and founder of the Civil Resistance of Venezuelans Abroad, a non-profit group. “We could not live with this any longer.” [...]

The United Nations Agenda 21 In One Easy Lesson

January 26, 2013 at 7:15 am

I repeat:

Of all of the oppressive controls government has heaped upon us, or has plans to, Agenda 21 has to be the single most frightening. I’m talking hair standing up on the back of your neck, bone chilling frightening. Truly diabolical. Every move you make, every breath you take. Complete and utter control on a global scale.

Worldwide central planning and social engineering courtesy of the United Nations.

One world order global socialism (communitarianism)

Tom DeWeese of the American Policy Center has published an excellent one page primer on Agenda 21.

Agenda 21 In One Easy Lesson — American Policy Center

Awareness of Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development is racing across the nation as citizens in community after community are learning what their city planners are actually up to. As awareness grows, I am receiving more and more calls for tools to help activists fight back. Many complain that elected officials just won’t read detailed reports or watch long videos. “Can you give us something that is quick, and easy to read that we can hand out,” I’m asked.

So here it is. A one page, quick description of Agenda 21 that fits on one page. I’ve also included for the back side of your hand out a list of quotes for the perpetrators of Agenda 21 that should back up my brief descriptions.

A word of caution, use this as a starter kit, but do not allow it to be your only knowledge of this very complex subject. To kill it you have to know the facts. Research, know your details; discover the NGO players in your community; identify who is victimized by the policies and recruit them to your fight; and then kill Agenda 21. That’s how it must be done. The information below is only your first step. Happy hunting.

What is Sustainable Development?

According to its authors, the objective of sustainable development is to integrate economic, social and environmental policies in order to achieve reduced consumption, social equity, and the preservation and restoration of biodiversity. Sustainablists insist that every societal decision be based on environmental impact, focusing on three components; global land use, global education, and global population control and reduction.

Social Equity (Social injustice)

Social justice is described as the right and opportunity of all people “to benefit equally from the resources afforded us by society and the environment.” Redistribution of wealth. Private property is a social injustice since not everyone can build wealth from it. National sovereignty is a social injustice. Universal health care is a social injustice. All part of Agenda 21 policy.

Economic Prosperity

Public Private Partnerships (PPP). Special dealings between government and certain, chosen corporations which get tax breaks, grants and the government’s power of

Eminent Domain to implement sustainable policy. Government-sanctioned monopolies.

Local Sustainable Development policies

Smart Growth, Wildlands Project, Resilient Cities, Regional Visioning Projects, STAR Sustainable Communities, Green jobs, Green Building Codes, “Going Green,” Alternative Energy, Local Visioning, facilitators, regional planning, historic preservation, conservation easements, development rights, sustainable farming, comprehensive planning, growth management, consensus.

Who is behind it?

ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability (formally, International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives). Communities pay ICLEI dues to provide “local” community plans, software, training, etc. Addition groups include American Planning Council, The Renaissance Planning Group, International City/ County Management Group, aided by US Mayors Conference, National Governors Association, National League of Cities, National Association of County Administrators and many more private organizations and official government agencies. Foundation and government grants drive the process.

Where did it originate?

The term Sustainable Development was first introduced to the world in the pages a 1987 report (Our Common Future) produced by the United Nations World Commission on Environmental and Development, authored by Gro Harlem Brundtland, VP of the World Socialist Party. The term was first offered as official UN policy in 1992, in a document called UN Sustainable Development Agenda 21, issued at the UN’s Earth Summit, today referred to simply as Agenda 21.

What gives Agenda 21 Ruling Authority?

More than 178 nations adopted Agenda 21 as official policy during a signing ceremony at the Earth Summit. US president George H.W. Bush signed the document for the US. In signing, each nation pledge to adopt the goals of Agenda 21. In 1995, President Bill Clinton, in compliance with Agenda 21, signed Executive Order #12858 to create the President’s Council on Sustainable Development in order to “harmonize” US environmental policy with UN directives as outlined in Agenda 21. The EO directed all agencies of the Federal Government to work with state and local community governments in a joint effort “reinvent” government using the guidelines outlined in Agenda 21. As a result, with the assistance of groups like ICLEI, Sustainable Development is now emerging as government policy in every town, county and state in the nation.

Revealing Quotes From the Planners

“Agenda 21 proposes an array of actions which are intended to be implemented by EVERY person on Earth…it calls for specific changes in the activities of ALL people… Effective execution of Agenda 21 will REQUIRE a profound reorientation of ALL humans, unlike anything the world has ever experienced… ” Agenda 21: The Earth Summit Strategy to Save Our Planet (Earthpress, 1993). Emphases – DR

Urgent to implement – but we don’t know what it is!

“The realities of life on our planet dictate that continued economic development as we know it cannot be sustained…Sustainable development, therefore is a program of action for local and global economic reform – a program that has yet to be fully defined.” The Local Agenda 21 Planning Guide, published by ICLEI, 1996.

“No one fully understands how or even, if, sustainable development can be achieved; however, there is growing consensus that it must be accomplished at the local level if it is ever to be achieved on a global basis.” The Local Agenda 21 Planning Guide, published by ICLEI, 1996.

Agenda 21 and Private Property

“Land…cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth, therefore contributes to social injustice.” From the report from the 1976 UN’s Habitat I Conference.

“Private land use decisions are often driven by strong economic incentives that result in several ecological and aesthetic consequences…The key to overcoming it is through public policy…” Report from the President’s Council on Sustainable Development, page 112.

“Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class – involving high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and work air conditioning, and suburban housing are not sustainable.” Maurice Strong, Secretary General of the UN’s Earth Summit, 1992.

Reinvention of Government

“We need a new collaborative decision process that leads to better decisions, more rapid change, and more sensible use of human, natural and financial resources in achieving our goals.” Report from the President’s Council on Sustainable Development

“Individual rights will have to take a back seat to the collective.” Harvey Ruvin, Vice Chairman, ICLEI. The Wildlands Project

“We must make this place an insecure and inhospitable place for Capitalists and their projects – we must reclaim the roads and plowed lands, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers and return to wilderness millions of tens of millions of acres or presently settled land.” Dave Foreman, Earth First.

What is not sustainable?

Ski runs, grazing of livestock, plowing of soil, building fences, industry, single family homes, paves and tarred roads, logging activities, dams and reservoirs, power line construction, and economic systems that fail to set proper value on the environment.” UN’s Biodiversity Assessment Report.

Hide Agenda 21’s UN roots from the people

“Participating in a UN advocated planning process would very likely bring out many of the conspiracy- fixated groups and individuals in our society… This segment of our society who fear ‘one-world government’ and a UN invasion of the United States through which our individual freedom would be stripped away would actively work to defeat any elected official who joined ‘the conspiracy’ by undertaking LA21. So we call our process something else, such as comprehensive planning, growth management or smart growth.” J. Gary Lawrence, advisor to President Clinton’s Council on Sustainable Development.
