It's not hard to tell which side MSNBC's Joy Reid is regarding the conflict between Israel and Hamas over the Gaza Strip. During Tuesday's edition of The Reid Report, she hammered the United States's staunchest ally in the region over an attack on a United Nations elementary girls' school that resulted in the deaths of 16 civilians -- including several children -- and injured more than 100 people.
During her “Reid Between the Lines” segment, the liberal host stated: “So far, the war in Gaza has left more than 1,800 Palestinians dead, the population equivalent to one hundred 9/11s -- mostly civilians, and including women and hundreds of children -- along with 67 Israelis, mostly soldiers.” She called these statistics a sign that “the U.N. is clearly not working.”
Readers are advised to make peace with the Maker soon. If we are to believe the recent utterings of United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon (pictured at right), humanity -- or at least humanity living life as we know it -- is not long for this earth.
The Sec-Gen's August 11 speech at the Global Economic Forum in Incheon, South Korea, was so over the top that it's likely the world's media kept its coverage of the event relatively muted to spare the poor man from worldwide embarrassment. There is nothing about the speech that I could find in searches on "Ban Ki-Moon United Nations" (not typed in quotes) at the New York Times or the Washington Post. A search on the same string at AP.org at 3:30 p.m. came up empty. An identical Google News search came back with a very light total of 42 results.
Here are key paragraphs from the Sec-Gen's hysterical speech, where he also (surprise, surprise) demands large sums of money "from public and private sources":
NewsBuster Noel Sheppard reported on the global climate meetings in Bali, particularly the letter sent to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon by a number of prominent scientists stating that the global warming hysteria was overblown. Now comes an attempt by US Senator James Inhofe to warn about the true goals of this movement.
Inhofe is a tireless crusader for truth in advertising where the global warming hysteria crowd is concerned. On the US Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works site he maintains the Inhofe EPW blog, wherein he and his staff update the hysteria of the global warming crowd. Today, blogger Marc Morano has posted a news release on the website exposing the real goals of the global warming crowd. The question is- will the so-called mainstream media actually report on this? Based on past experience, I would guess not.
