Take Us Out Mr. President

We urge CHQ readers to use this link to contact the White House. Tell President Trump it is time to fulfill his campaign promise to protect American workers by taking us out of Obama’s unconstitutional Paris climate deal.

Don’t Defund the U.N., Just Say ‘Go!’

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

There is one reason and one reason alone why the U.N. is relevant: because the United States is in it. It is not our financial support that the U.N. needs; it is our participation. The U.N. is a corrupt institution that is hostile to our interests and system of government while living off our prosperity, banking on our rule of law, and luxuriating in the very society it so routinely condemns. And we continue to legitimize it.

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Democrats Make Climate Change a Signature of Their Convention: Voters Yawn

Our friends at the Competitive Enterprise Institute just released an analysis of the Republican and Democratic Party platforms on energy and climate issues. The analysis shows there is a stark difference between the two Parties, a difference that shows Democrats are strangely out of synch with public opinion on this issue.

“We” Aren’t Responsible for Solving the World’s Problems

Does the UN's Gordon Brown really believe that the Islamist terrorists of Boko Haram would have stopped if confronted by cameras, gates, and guards, let alone an international declaration? The group has prospered by defeating Nigeria’s security forces in combat. What’s going on in Nigeria and in so many other war-ravaged states is tragic, however, Brown and others like him should bring their ambitions back to earth.

UN Update: Know Your Enemy, The Attack of the NGOs

Americans must begin to understand that the debate over environmental issues have very little to do with clean water and air or community planning, and much more to do with the establishment of power. NGOs are gaining it as locally-elected representatives are losing their rightful position to influence and guide policy on behalf of the citizens of their community who elected them.

Obama Defends Islam, Smacks Israel, American Racism at UN

Be Shapiro, Breitbart

Taking on issues ranging from Iran to Russia, from Ukraine to Syria, from global warming to Ebola, Obama pledged to utilize American might in service to the UN, speaking grandly of the beauty and power of the world’s least effective and most morally bankrupt international institution.

Panic in “Sustainable City”

Our friend Tom DeWeese, President of the American Policy Center, updates CHQ readers on how the tyranny of sustainable policy builds in town after town, neighborhood after neighborhood and why the powerful "Sustainablists" are in such a panic over his grassroots efforts to expose their outrages.

Sharona Schwartz, The Blaze

Holder: Int'l Law Trumps Constitution

Conservative Daily Staff

Eric Holder is currently arguing before the Supreme Court that United Nations treaties trump the US Constitution.Yep. The sitting AG is arguing that int'l law is in fact the law of the land.

The U.N. Threat to the Second Amendment Becomes Real

Given Obama’s record of ignoring the Constitution, let alone the laws Congress passes, we urge you to call or e-mail your Senators (the Capitol switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to demand that they vote "NO" on ratification and be vigilant against any Obama action to implement the UN Arms Trade Treaty through executive orders or other extra-constitutional means.

O Agrees to UN Talks on Syria

Jennifer Epstein, Politico

Obama has agreed to engage in discussions at the UN to “explore seriously the viability” of Russia’s proposal for Syria to hand over its chemical weapons.

Stop Throwing Away Foreign Aid Dollars for Nothing

It long has been evident that nations are poor because of bad policies, not inadequate cash balances.  Which makes economic reform, not foreign aid, the key to growth.  Unfortunately, politicians continue to take money from poor people in rich countries and give it to rich people in poor countries in the name of development.
