Was this McCully’s pay off for stabbing Israel in the back?

NZ Foreign Minister Murray McCully

On Christmas Eve last year, Murray McCully signed up New Zealand to support despots, dictators and terrorists against the only democratic nation in the Middle East.

Now it appears we can get a glimpse of what he was angling for:

The resumption of trade ties with Iran appears closer following the signing of a new deal with the Iranian government.

The signing of a meat arrangement means sheep and beef exports to Iran can now resume. Steps are underway to develop Kiwifruit exports as well.

The Minister for Primary Industries, Nathan Guy, is calling the agreement, “a crucial step for New Zealand meat companies as they look to re-enter the Iranian market.”

Trade had previously curtailed because of sanctions against Iran over its nuclear programme.

Nikki Haley’s first press conference reveals the deceit of the UN

Watch this video to gain an understand how dysfunctional the UN Security Council and the General Assembly have become. Her press conference reveals just exactly the sort of subterfuge and ratbag behaviour that Murray McCully has been up to.

I doubt if our media would show this clip of the US Ambassador’s first press conference after her first UN Security Council meeting.

It gives you some idea of what Murray’s been up to at these meetings.

The first thing I want to do is talk about what we just saw in there. The Security Council just finished its regular monthly meeting on Middle East issues. It’s the first meeting like that that I’ve attended, and I have to say it was a bit strange. The Security Council is supposed to discuss how to maintain international peace and security. But at our meeting on the Middle East, the discussion was not about Hizballah’s illegal build-up of rockets in Lebanon. It was not about the money and weapons Iran provides to terrorists. It was not about how we defeat ISIS. It was not about how we hold Bashar al-Assad accountable for the slaughter of hundreds and thousands of civilians. No, instead, the meeting focused on criticizing Israel, the one true democracy in the Middle East. I am new around here, but I understand that’s how the Council has operated, month after month, for decades.   Read more »

Is it the final countdown for the United Nations?

UN Resolution 2334 started off a chain of events that may lead to the replacement of the United Nations with a new world body called The Covenant of Democratic Nations.” The birth of the new movement to replace the UN was in reaction to the ambassadorial applause when the UN declared that Israel’s Jewish connection to the Western Wall was now to all intents and purposes illegal. It hardened the resolve of some key people and now concrete replacement action has begun. The idea is that CDN nations will stay as vestigial members in order to oversee the UN’s destruction in the same way the League of Nations was dissolved after World War Two and replaced with the present UN.

It has started with a conversation of ideas proposing an official international conference which would carefully propound a multilaterally-signed diplomatic convention that would be ratified by countries as a binding treaty that would juridically forge the Covenant into operational reality. The entire process — fraught with hazy puzzlements over a terrain of “what ifs” — would be limited to nations governed by democratic principles. Each member would or could defund the United Nations while it labored to construct a successor entity dedicated to world peace along democratic principles with equal respect for all people regardless of religion, gender, race, identity, or national origin, as well as formulating a mechanism to resolve disputes.

Hey Murray, Bill…take note you muppets

After stabbing Israel in the back at the behest of outgoing President Obama and his useful message boy John Kerry, the new US administration has sent a blunt message via their new UN ambassador.

It is a message for dopey Bill English who says he doesn’t want a bar of Trump’s “America First” policies and for Murray McCully that they both should heed.

Washington’s new ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, vowed Friday to show US strength in global affairs and delivered a blunt warning to opponents of President Donald Trump’s policies.

“For those who don’t have our backs, we’re taking names,” Haley told reporters at she arrived at UN headquarters for her first meeting with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

“We will make points to respond to that accordingly.”   Read more »

Why didn’t Murray McCully run UNSC 2334 through Cabinet?

I know that New Zealand’s pushing of UNSC resolution 2334 wasn’t run through Cabinet.

I’ve spoken to plenty of cabinet ministers since then to know it wasn’t put to Cabinet.

But it should have been, and here is why.

The Cabinet Manual clearly states:

Items for consideration by Cabinet

5.11 As a general rule, Ministers should put before their colleagues the sorts of issues on which they themselves would wish to be consulted. Ministers should keep their colleagues informed about matters of public interest, importance, or controversy. Where there is uncertainty about the level and type of consideration needed, Ministers should seek advice from the Prime Minister or the Secretary of the Cabinet. Similarly, departments should seek advice from the office of the portfolio Minister, or from the Cabinet Office.   Read more »

The domino effect which is crashing down on the UN

U.N. building.

It has been a political cock-up of massive proportions. I am sure Murray McCully and PM Bill English expected this all to happen quietly during the holiday period. They were counting on both the American and the New Zealand media ignoring it. Instead the public have been made aware of their machinations in league with communist Venezuela and backstabber in Chief, Barack Hussein Obama and the reaction has set off a chain of events, (a domino effect ) that they would never have expected to happen in their wildest dreams.

Congress is already setting the stage to cut off U.S. funding to the United Nations in the wake of a contested vote last week in which the Obama administration permitted an anti-Israel resolution to win overwhelming approval, according to congressional leaders, who told the Washington Free Beacon that the current administration is already plotting to take further action against the Jewish state before vacating office.

Cutting off U.S.funding is only one of the many domino counters that are currently crashing their way towards the United Nations.

These are the “moderate” friends of McCully

 

Three days ago Fatah’s official Facebook page posted a drawing of its map of “Palestine,” which includes all of Israel and painted like the Palestinian flag, being used to stab the word “settlement.” The text above the image: “#Palestine will defeat the settlement ”

Yesterday in response to the UN Security Council resolution declaring Israeli settlements illegal, Fatah republished the identical image but added a pool of blood at the bottom, and the words “Thank You” above the image, and the names of the 14 countries that voted in favour of the UN resolution.

Breitbart reports:

Following the passage of an anti-Israel resolution at the United Nations, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party posted a cartoon on its official Facebook page on Saturday, featuring a large knife stabbing “settlements” and the words “Thank You” to the countries that voted for the resolution.   Read more »

Has Obama unwittingly sunk the UN?

Barack Obama’s last days in office have been a travesty. His plan to stab Israel by refusing the veto may have unwittingly opened the door for Donald Trump to have a crack at draining the UN swamp at Turtle Bay.

Roger L. Simon at PJ Media explains:

We live in a world of unintended consequences and Barack Obama, in his overwhelming zeal to exact last-minute personal vengeance on Bibi Netanyahu in particular and Israel in general with Friday’s Security Council vote, opened the door to the defunding and serious diminution of the United Nations itself.

Donald Trump — who is seeking to spend a ton of taxpayer money on rebuilding our military and infrastructure — is undoubtedly looking for places to save. Nowhere would be better to start than that moribund center of international corruption and megaphone for tin-pot dictators, the United Nations.

What started out after World War II as the idealistic coming together of nations to end war ended up being one of the giant ripoffs of all time.  The UN oil-for-food scandal during the Iraq War showed how extreme it had become.  The UN committee’s own report…

….accused nearly half of the 4,500 participating companies of paying kickbacks and illegal surcharges to win lucrative contracts, and allowing Saddam Hussein to pocket $1.8 billion at the expense of Iraqis suffering under UN economic sanctions. The commission’s lead investigator, former U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman  Paul Volcker, stated that it was UN mismanagement and failure of the world’s most powerful nations to end corruption in the program that allowed Saddam to fill his coffers.

“UN mismanagement” isn’t the half of it.  It was unbridled corruption on the part of UN leadership with some of the masterminds fleeing the country, checks in hand, to places like Beijing.

Meanwhile, this “peaceful” organization that has had no effect whatsoever on ending war spends most of its working hours bashing the state of Israel.  In 2015 alone the UN General Assembly adopted 20 resolutions singling out Israel for criticism — and only 3 resolutions on the rest of the world combined.

And what does the U.S. taxpayer fork over for participating in this global society for slanderous garbage?  $3.04 billion in 2015, to be exact.  Now admittedly that’s not as much as Barack Obama has been shoveling to Iran’s mullahs, but it’s still a lot.

Ooops McCully and English just got bitch slapped

English and McCully took their thirty pieces of silver in trade or whatever blood money inducement Muslim countries gave them and with Obama’s blessing attacked Israel. However, there is a new sheriff in town  America and he and his mates don’t take kindly to little shits like New Zealand giving the Middle East’s only true democracy the finger.

Israel set to impose sanctions on NZ

Murray McCully’s stupidity is set to cost New Zealand. Israel is gearing up for sanctions against New Zealand now.

Haaretz reports:

Israel rejects the UN Security Council’s anti-settlement resolution out of hand and has no intention of abiding by it, the Prime Minister’s Bureau said late Friday, accusing Obama of “colluding” against Israel. The United States, a permanent member of the council, abstained from the vote.

“Israel rejects the contemptible, anti-Israel UN resolution and will not subordinate itself to it,” the bureau said.

Israel said it will impose sanctions on two states that pushed for the UN Security Council resolution against Israeli settlements. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered the Israeli ambassadors in New Zealand and Senegal for consultation. Israel does not have diplomatic ties with the two other states that called for a vote on the resolution – Venezuela and Malaysia.

The prime minister’s bureau said that Netanyahu has canceled an impending visit of the Senegalese foreign minister to Israel, and ordered the Foreign Ministry to void all planned aid to the country. He also canceled the visits of the non-resident ambassadors from Senegal and New Zealand.   Read more »
