Trump Says See Ya To The UN Human Rights Council, Announces U.S. Withdrawal

We’re NOT Tired Of Winning!

The United Nations Human Rights Council doesn’t deserve their namesake with countries like Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, and Cuba having representatives on the council. Now President Donald Trump’s Administration has made it clear that they don’t deserve to have the United States as representatives in a Tuesday decision to withdraw the U.S.’s membership.

The announcement was made by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley and wasn’t all that surprising. The United States has feuded with the U.N.’s Human Rights Council since the President first took office.

Conflicts between the U.S. and the U.N. Human Rights Council flared up most notably in recent weeks after the 47-member body voted to condemn Israel. The Human Rights Council considers Israel the world’s number one human rights abuser, while continually taking the side of Palestine in the border dispute between the two countries.

While the council’s treatment of Israel was the stated reason for the withdrawal, the U.N. Human Rights Council has long been a thorn in the side of many tenants of Donald Trump’s agenda.

For many years, the U.N. Human Rights Council has fought to make abortion a human right. Many members of the council are also extremely opposed to President Trump’s strict anti-illegal immigration stance. Just a day before the decision to withdraw from membership in the council, the U.N.’s human rights chief blasted Trump for his work to enforce federal immigration law in the United States.

During Monday’s meeting session Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein told the body that  “in the United States, I am deeply concerned by recently adopted policies which punish children for their parents’ actions.”

The Trump Administration’s decision to withdraw from the U.N. Human Rights Council is yet another accomplishment for anyone who believes in his “America First” message. Perhaps his next step could be leaving the United Nations all together.

Attorney General Bill Barr Folds to the Mob, Claims There is Systemic Racism in Law Enforcement

Barr said that law enforcement being unfair to blacks is a “widespread phenomenon.”

Attorney General Bill Barr has bent his knee to Black Lives Matter (BLM) activists, defending the lie of systemic racism during an interview with ABC News.

“I do think it is a widespread phenomenon that African American males, in particular, are treated with extra suspicion and maybe not given the benefit of the doubt,” Barr said to ABC News Chief Justice Correspondent Pierre Thomas during an exclusive interview.

“I think it is wrong if people are not respected appropriately and given their due,” he added, “and I think it’s something we have to address.”

Barr said that he is cheering on widespread reform in the wake of serial felon drug addict George Floyd’s death during a police encounter.

“Before the George Floyd incident I thought we were in a good place,” he said. “I think that this episode in Minneapolis showed that we still have some work to do in addressing the distrust that exists in the African American community toward law enforcement.”

Barr noted that he hopes Floyd’s death will serve as “a catalyst for the kinds of changes that are needed.”

Although Barr is paying lip service to BLM and throwing law enforcement under the bus, he has not yet joined the bandwagon to defund the police. He instead wants cops to be hamstrung and substituted with social workers in certain situations to deal with suspected criminals.

“We have to think about more investment in the police,” Barr said. “So one of the things we’ve been talking about is trying to direct some of the [Health and Human Services] money and grant programs and sync it up with law enforcement spending so we can enable the departments to have co-responders. That is, social workers and mental health experts who can go on certain kinds of calls to help.”

He cited a recent federal study conducted by the Justice Department’s civil rights division throwing law enforcement under the bus.

“We found, in that case, that there was a drug unit in the Springfield (Mass.) police department that was engaged in a pattern and practice of using excessive force,” Barr said.

Barr offered a very modest criticism of BLM during the interview for refusing to focus on the thousands of black lives that are taken by other black people.

“I also think [the phrase] is being used now – it is distorting the debate to some extent, because it is used really to refer almost exclusively to black lives that are lost to police misconduct,” he said. “Then you compare it to 8,000 homicides in the African American community, those are black lives that matter, too. And those are lives that are protected by the police.”

Barr’s response shows why Fox News host Tucker Carlson is saying that Republicans have failed abysmally in their response to a nationwide terror campaign from the Left. The weak response from the administration may cost Trump re-election in November.
