I don’t bloody well think so!!!
Cannabis decriminalisation measures across the United States, including the medical use of marijuana in California, have been sharply criticised by the United Nations, which has warned Washington they violate the international drug conventions.
The International Narcotics Control Board (INCB), which polices the drug treaties, has also warned about the growing public health threat from the “unprecedented surge” in “legal highs” and called for concerted global action to curb the growing trade.
Launching its annual report in London, Raymond Yans, the INCB president, said that the successful ballots in Colorado and Washington to legalise the use of cannabis for recreational purposes and the fact that Massachusetts had recently become the 18th state to allow the use of cannabis for medicinal purposes violate the international drug conventions.
“They also undermine the humanitarian aims of the drug control system and are a threat to public health and wellbeing,” said Yans. He claimed that so-called “medicinal use” initiatives were little more than “a back-door to legalisation for recreational use”.
The INCB has warned the US government that medical cannabis must be properly regulated. “In some US states they are being operated in a way that is completely inappropriate and outside of the conventions,” the report says.
I’ll be perfectly honest…. I don’t think legalizing pot is such a great idea, but if certain states do legalize it, then that’s going to be their problem. I’m sure they’ll find out eventually perhaps they made a mistake. That being said, I don’t recall ANYWHERE in the U.S. Constitution that a foreign body, aka the Useless Nations has any say in what we, and a sovereign nation do. Nope. Nowhere!
Now, if there are other countries who want to allow the UN to order them around, that’s their business. Makes ‘em look stupid and incompetent to run their own countries, but hey…it’s still their own business. WE, The People of the United States, on the other hand, do NOT wish a bunch of feckless, foreign, corrupt, weasels telling us what we can, and cannot, do. We have enough of those already in D.C., thank you very much.
So, as far as I’m concerned, the Useless Numbuts can kiss my red, white, and blue hind end!! Then they can shove it where the sun don’t shine! They’d do well to remember what Yamamoto supposedly said, and likely did not, but true none the less: There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.
What a freakin’ joke! You’d think by now that people would realize that the United Nations is nothing more than a power hungry, money grubbing, useless scam! It has been for a very long time! Yet, morons in the administration, this and previous, keep dancing to their tune, instead of focusing on our own issues. Criminy!
Man cannot create more storms. He does not have control of their intensity, or where they hit landfall. He does not have the ability to stop volcanoes, or earthquakes, or anything that nature puts forth. There is only One who has that ability, and apparently, He’s pretty pissed off.
Stop Meeting with the U.N. on Climate Change
Two days ago, the 18th United Nations conference on climate change wrapped up. As they did at the previous 17 conferences, developing nations demanded that the United States and other developed countries pay them for the climate’s effects.
In short, the joke’s on us. And these U.N. conferences are becoming increasingly irrelevant.
Poor nations, including small islands, are seeking a new “international mechanism” to have developed nations pay for storm damage to their countries. This is based on the assumption that global warming is causing stronger hurricanes, typhoons, and the like, which is still unproven.
And get that feckless bunch of weasels OUT of the U.S.! Honestly, I can’t think of one nice thing to say about the UN, other than they did, in the beginning, manage to “allow” Israel to re-establish herself. That’s pretty much it!
The more the UN interferes, the worse things get. It doesn’t matter which country we’re talking about, but take the Congo for example. Those UN “peace keepers” have quite a reputation for rape and corruption. Does anyone think they would handle the U.S. any better than her citizens. Just why is it that the UN wants to take control of the U.S.? And why is it that the clown who swore to uphold the Constitution of the United States is all to willing to hand over control to a bunch of foreign, murderous thugs?
Our Constitution trumps any foreign law, but yet it seems that this administration, and a few prior, have been handing over more and more of OUR God given rights into the hands of power hungry scum suckers, the biggest abusers of human rights since Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, and Mao.
It’s bad enough that the election was stolen through fraud and deceit, now we have to contend with a Senate who has obviously forgotten just whose side they are SUPPOSE to be on? I don’t bleepin’ think so! Handing our country over to a bunch of thieves like the UN is just one more nail in our coffin.
The tree of Liberty needs to be watered from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

Disabilities Treaty Just Another U.N. Power Grab
International treaties sound like a good idea, especially when they claim to protect vulnerable people. The problem is, America already does more than any other country to ensure equal rights for its people—and the United Nations just wants the power to interfere in American law.
The Senate is now considering the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). President Obama signed this treaty in 2009, but the Senate has yet to agree to it. It needs a two-thirds majority of Senators to ratify it. In September, 36 Republican Senators signed a letter stating that they would oppose any treaties that came up for a vote during the lame-duck session of Congress. We will see now whether that promise holds.
The Apologizer in Chief. The Madman of Iran. The Muslim Brotherhood honcho.
And then, we have an actual leader…a man with a spine, who is not afraid to speak the truth. If only the Western world had more like him, perhaps, we wouldn’t find ourselves heading down the path to destruction.
Why is this madman ever even allowed to land on our soil? Yeah…Mamoul Imadinnerjacket is here for that useless United Nations nonsense, but that is STILL part of our country, and he has no business here…or anywhere in the civilized world, for that matter. Come to think of it, a large number of those who come for this conference should be behind bars, or shot, or something. But that’s another issue.
When the titular head of a country that claims to be ‘civilized’ encourages the murder of his own people, it’s pretty hard to actually consider such a being as civilized. And yet, he tells us, it’s the U.S. and Israel that is uncivilized. Riiiiiiight! We don’t hang people for being gay. We don’t stone women to death for the least infraction of some 7th century rule, and we don’t shoot innocent people protesting peacefully in the streets. Who is uncivilized?
Apparently, they don’t teach real history in Iranian schools either. To state that “Israel has no roots in the Middle East” is downright laughable. Archaeological evidence proves otherwise. While Mamoul’s ancestors were probably throwing their children into the fires of Baal, the Israelis were building their cities, worshiping HaShem in the land GIVEN to them (at least those who didn’t turn their backs to Him). If the Israelis really wanted to push the issue, there would be a LOT of surrounding Arab countries losing quite a bit of land. They should be happy that Israel is a civilized country!
Ok, let’s face a few facts here. The guy that has been occupying the White House for nearly four years has been nothing but a disappointment since day one. He does not share American values, so the last place he should be is in the highest office in the land. He was not raised with the same values the majority of us were since he lived his formative years in a foreign country, and was mentored by communists and radicals. How do you value the Constitution of the United States when you’ve been taught to undermine it? And undermine it he has!
Mr Obama, I do not apologize for being an American. I do not apologize for being a Christian. I do not apologize to savages. I do not apologize for believing our Constitution trumps the United Nations, or any other entity or country or cult religion. And Mr Obama, if you are an American, NEITHER SHOULD YOU! YOU are an embarrassment to every liberty loving American. Your time is up! Come November 6, 2012, you WILL be fired!
5 Ways Obama Disappointed at the United Nations
President Obama spoke to the United Nations General Assembly in New York yesterday—and what a disappointing speech it was.
He actually scrapped his original speech outline to focus on the controversial YouTube video that many have suggested sparked recent anti-American attacks in the Middle East, including one in Libya that killed a U.S. Ambassador and other Americans. Making this video the focus of his speech was inappropriate. He should have used the international platform to make an unapologetic case for freedom. The President failed the American people—and America’s allies—in five major ways.
1. He failed to give a robust defense of free speech.
In tripping over the YouTube video that was offensive to Muslims, the President seemed to validate other countries’ disregard for freedom of speech:
I know that not all countries in this body share this particular understanding of the protection of free speech. We recognize that. But in 2012, at a time when anyone with a cell phone can spread offensive views around the world with the click of a button, the notion that we can control the flow of information is obsolete. The question, then, is how we respond.
He also admonished people for offending others, saying, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. Yet to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see when the image of Jesus Christ is desecrated, churches are destroyed, or the Holocaust is denied.”
U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan are being ordered to carry loaded weapons at all times while on base, in response to a rash of Afghan soldiers and policemen turning their weapons on coalition forces.
The directive, confirmed by Fox News, was issued by International Security Assistance Force Commander Gen. John Allen. It says that troops should no longer simply keep ammunition magazines close by — instead, those magazines should be loaded in the weapons.
When I first heard about this, I was shocked! Who would be stupid enough to order soldiers, IN A WAR ZONE, to carry UNLOADED weapons??????????? These animals are NOT our friends. They will NEVER be our friends! What do you do with rabid animals? YOU F***ING SHOOT THEM! Since there are so many in such a large area, I’d suggest something along the lines of….get the hell out of there, and nuke the sons of bitches! Problem solved.
Two Americans were killed Friday when a local village policeman opened fire in Farah province in the west. Two more Americans were shot and wounded in a separate incident in the southern province of Kandahar.
Thirty-nine NATO service members, mostly Americans, have been killed in these types of attacks so far this year. In one horrifying scene earlier this year, an Afghan soldier shot and killed an American while he was playing volleyball on base.
The attacks are up significantly — from 11 deaths in 2011. There were four such deaths in all of 2007 and 2008.
I wonder what changed between 2008 and now? /snark I am disgusted with the lack of leadership. I am revolted by the uncaring attitude. There will be no peace in that area….ever. Making nice with animals is getting civilized men and women killed. You don’t fight a war to make friends. You fight a war to freakin’ WIN! Destroy the enemy….COMPLETELY! Yet we have opened the door to such people, allowed them free reign in our country, and have to play nice, on our own soil, to those who would destroy us. The world has gone totally mad!
My heart breaks for the families of these men and women, who have sacrificed all.
If you check the link, you’ll see that neither senator from Tennessee signed the letter in opposition to this treaty. Why is that? Well, Lamar Alexander is practically a Democrat for one thing, and he’s not running for re-election. He’s actually stated he won’t run again. I’m going to hold him to that!
Now, Bob Corker, on the other hand, IS running this year, so why would he be so stupid as to not oppose a treaty that erodes U.S. sovereignty? Damn good question. My husband had sent him a letter, asking him not to support this treaty, and what he got back? You guessed…a form letter! In said form letter, Mr Corker said he didn’t know enough about the treaty to make an informed decision. *chin drop* Seriously? I’ve known about this piece of crap for a couple of decades now, and that was even before I was paying close attention to what was going on in the rest of the world. And here, we have a United States Senator who is unfamiliar with the U.N. treaty? Hey! Mr Corker! You can rest assured I’ll be voting for Zach in the primary. Early voting going on right now, y’know!
In all honestly, the only treaty I want the U.S. to sign with the Useless Numnuts is the one that says THEY will be leaving our shores, never to darken our doors again! And that WE will no longer be footing the bills for their upkeep, including the financing for every other useless plan they come up with! THAT is the ‘treaty’ I want, and the U.S. NEEDS!
Harmful U.N. Sea Treaty Stalls in Senate
A United Nations threat to U.S. sovereignty has been halted. The Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST), a pet project of Senator John Kerry (D-MA), ran aground yesterday when opposition reached critical mass.
A total of 34 Senators, led by Jim DeMint (R-SC) and James Inhofe (R-OK), have now expressed opposition—enough to kill the treaty if it comes up for a vote.
As Heritage Action for America CEO Michael Needham said:
America had little to gain through accession to the Law of the Sea Treaty—but much to lose. Rather than affirming existing practices, it would have instituted a radically new, international legal regime. The demise of the Law of the Sea Treaty not only represents a victory for American sovereignty, but also the American people.
One of the most vocal and effective spokesmen against LOST has been Heritage Foundation expert Steven Groves. He testified in June before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, chaired by Senator Kerry.
….how many more ‘facts’ do you need to vote NO if, and when, this travesty is brought before the Senate? As an elected official, it is your job to ‘protect and defend the Constitution of the United States’, and this treaty is in complete violation of that oath. Handing power over to a foreign entity, and the United Nations is about as foreign as they get, is an act of treason, IMHO.
Oh, and an FYI….I’m taking a real close look at your primary opponent, and I’m really hoping other Tennesseans will be doing the same!
In typical Democrat fashion, any ability to fight voter fraud is being blocked. This is nothing new for them, it’s been going on quite a while. The latest target in the corrupt Democrat machine of Barack Obama and Eric Holder is Texas. There are people here in Texas who are just as fed up as those in the rest of the country with the constant blatant racism of this Attorney General and his minions.
Demonstrating the need for Texas’s law, a Texas-based group called True the Vote has found many instances of the very voter registration irregularities that Voter ID is designed to prevent from turning into fraudulent votes, and thus to shield our elections from some of the easiest to perpetrate forms of corruption. They found particular problems in the Houston-area district of Democratic Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee who, as usual, cried “racist!”
I know it’s not funny, but I can only chuckle when I hear Shelia Jackson Lee spouting her ‘racist’ line. Doesn’t matter what it is about, that’s her battle cry, and too many follow along blindly. What is racist is the obvious fraud that has been perpetrated on the American people, of all colors, by the Democrat Party. This isn’t new. Since the days of Reconstruction, the Democrats have been targeting white AND black Americans. Their history is steeped in racism and violence.
Don’t believe me? Go to the National Black Republican Association website, read for yourself. Educate yourself on the REAL history, and who it has been, closing in on 2 centuries, that has fought any progress for black Americans. Talk to people like Alfonzo Rachel, Stacy Swimp, and Lloyd Marcus. Learn from Thomas Sowell, Frantz Kebreau, Kevin Jackson, Starr Parker and many more. Listen to Representatives Allen West and Tim Scott.
Ya just gotta love those Dems who equate voter ID with ‘bringing back Jim Crow‘. (My goodness, that’s one extremely ignorant woman! Y’all should be embarrassed!) Well, they should know better, since it was the DEMOCRATS who enacted those laws. But even they are willfully ignorant of their own history. Or perhaps they choose to keep their followers blindly in the dark? Apparently, it’s another one of those important tidbits that is being left out of our public school system. Why would the Democrats, and their ‘strong armed unions’ want our kids to learn the REAL history of the country?
Two American soldiers were killed Thursday in a shooting by an Afghan soldier and a literacy teacher at a joint base in southern Afghanistan, officials said, the latest in a series of deaths as anti-Americanism rises following the burning of Korans by U.S. soldiers.
Both were killed on the same day that the top NATO commander allowed a small number of foreign advisers to return to work at Afghan ministries after more than a week of being locked down in secure locations because of the killing of two other Americans.
Thursday’s killings raised to six the number of Americans killed in less than two weeks amid heightened tensions over the Feb. 20 burning of Korans and other Islamic texts that had been dumped in a garbage pit at Bagram Air Field near Kabul. More than 30 Afghans also were killed in six days of violent riots that broke out after the incident.
Wait a minute. I thought D’Bama said his apology got everything calmed down. So, I’m guessing the 6 dead Americans isn’t true? I’m sure their families will be quite happy to know that Barack Hussein Obama is in charge, and all is well, including their dead loved ones.
It’s time to get out! Let them kill each other, I don’t care! I’m tired of that candy ass in Washington apologizing and putting OUR military in even MORE danger! Seriously doood….
You do NOT speak for the REAL Americans!
Then along comes the “United Nations” telling the world that the soldiers who inadvertently burned the evil books, you know the ones, all marked up with jihadi messages, written by MUSLIM prisoners, should be tried? They were already ‘defiled’, so why not burn ‘em anyway? Hypocrites! We’ve already lost enough to those animals. Why don’t dipwads who sit in their fancy offices, judging everyone else, take their sorry hind ends over there, and apologize to the Americans who put their lives on the line to protect a bunch of animal ingrates! WE Americans have had ENOUGH!
Added: Our own ambassador ‘isn’t ruling out proceedings? Two words!
U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon accused the Syrian regime of committing “almost certain” crimes against humanity Thursday as activists reported fresh violence and the arrest of several prominent dissidents, including a U.S.-born blogger.
Speaking to reporters in Vienna, Ban demanded the Syrian regime stop using indiscriminate force against civilians caught up in fighting between government troops and President Bashar Assad’s opponents.
“We see neighborhoods shelled indiscriminately,” Ban told reporters in Vienna. “Hospitals used as torture centers. Children as young as ten years old jailed and abused. We see almost certain crimes against humanity.”
“Possible”? Gee…ya think? Of course, for the UN to admit to any possible ‘crimes against humanity’ in the Middles East, other than Israel of course, is practically a miracle! Of course, I’m sure, than once the oh so peaceful folks of al Qaeda step in, all with be well.
Agenda 21 and the Threat in Your Backyard
Ready to trade in your car for a bike, or maybe a subway instead? Interested in fewer choices for your home, paying more for housing, and being crammed into a denser neighborhood? You can have all this and more if radical environmentalists and “smart growth” advocates have their way and local, state, and the federal government impose the policies set forth in the United Nations’ Agenda 21.
You might have heard of this nefarious-sounding policy in a recent Republican presidential debate, but even if you haven’t, here’s some background information: Agenda 21 is a voluntary plan adopted at the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development. It calls on governments to intervene and regulate nearly every potential impact that human activity could have on the environment. The end goal? Getting governments to “rethink economic development and find ways to halt the destruction of irreplaceable natural resources and pollution of the planet.”
