‘A Republican-proposed House Resolution has quietly slipped past the public radar – proposing that the United States withdraw its membership from the United Nations, just as another bill was being concocted to cut US funding to the body.
The bill, proposed by Rep. Mike Rogers (R-AL), entitled American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2017, seeks a complete US withdrawal from the UN, that the international body remove its headquarters from New York and that all participation be ceased with the World Health Organization as well.
Rogers and other prominent Republicans have repeatedly voiced the idea that US taxpayer money should not go to an organization that does not promote US interests – especially one that does not stick up for Israel together with the US. The new document is merely the latest manifestation of sentiment that has been brewing for some time.’
‘The administration of new US President Donald Trump has stepped up war of words with China over the South China Sea and Beijing’s trade policies, drawing a rocky future for Sino-American ties.
In his first daily briefing on Monday, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said that Washington was going to stop Beijing’s “island building” in the South China Sea.
The US has long accused China of undertaking a land reclamation program in the disputed waters through making artificial islands.
“It’s a question of if those islands are in fact in international waters and not part of China proper, then yeah, we’re going to make sure that we defend international territories from being taken over by one country,” Spicer said.’

‘An MP from Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development party (AKP) has questioned NATO’s commitment to its key ally, claiming that the bloc has been backing regime change attempts in Ankara and supports “terrorist groups” in the region.
Şamil Tayyar, who represents Turkey’s southeast Gazientep province, launched a scathing verbal attack on the military alliance in an interview to Milat daily on Monday, claiming that since Turkey joining the alliance in the 1950s, it has played a negative role in Turkish history.
“NATO has always been in charge of the dirty and bloody deeds in the country. The 1960 military coup was staged by the British, the 1971 coup was staged by the CIA, and the 1980 coup was staged by NATO,” Tayyar said, as cited by Hurriyet.’
Children of the Matrix By David Icke
Children of the Matrix, the book that has been out of print for more than two years, is BACK!
This is the book in which David focuses on the reptilian manipulation of human society from the hidden realms beyond the ludicrously tiny frequency band of visible light – the only frequency range that human eyes can see.
There are accounts from those who have interacted with these entities and a host of other information, ancient and modern, to support the contention that human society is being manipulated by a non-human force.
The book, written in 2000, also foresees and predicts the direction in which the world has since clearly gone and the techniques that would be used to take us there.
THIS BOOK IS AVAILABLE NOW FOR PRE – ORDER AND WILL BE SHIPPED FROM FRIDAY 20TH JANUARY
‘Iraqi forces have liberated all of eastern Mosul, pushing Daesh terrorists out of the last district they held east of the Tigris River.
“The armed forces succeeded in liberating the left bank of the city of Mosul completely, after inflicting heavy losses in lives and equipment on the enemy,” the Iraqi Defense Ministry said in a statement on its website on Monday.
The ministry said that security forces were now clearing the area from explosives.
The Iraqi forces will now gear up to recapture the western side of Mosul to wrest full control over the strategic city.’
‘An Israeli court has convicted nuclear whistle-blower Mordechai Vanunu of what it described as a violation of the terms of his release from prison under parole, more than a decade after he completed an 18-year prison sentence.
The so-called Jerusalem Magistrate Court made the ruling on January 10, but it was not cleared for publication until Monday. A sentence is due on March 14.
The 62-year-old former nuclear technician was convicted of meeting two US nationals in East Jerusalem al-Quds in 2013 without having permission to do so. He was, however, cleared of two other counts.
Vanunu had also been accused of moving apartments in 2014 without notifying Israeli authorities and attending an interview in 2015 with Israel’s Hebrew-language Channel 2 television network.’
‘Ismail Haniyeh, the leader of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas has arrived in Egypt to hold talks with the North African country’s officials.
Egyptian sources said Monday that Haniyeh had arrived in the country late Sunday for meetings with senior security officials. Hamas officials also confirmed the visit.
The visit to Egypt by Haniyeh comes as relations between the resistance group and the Egyptian government remain tense.’
‘Cross-border movement was severely disrupted at several US-Mexico checkpoints, as Mexicans protested a gas price hike. At one location movement was redirected, while at another, American cars entered Mexico unsearched for hours.
Mexican protesters took control of one of the busiest US border crossings at Otay Mesa, California, in opposition to President Enrique Pena Nieto’s decision to increase gas prices.
Over on the Mexican side, things became chaotic on Sunday, as customs officials had reportedly fled the crossing within minutes of the trouble starting. According to witness reports, one soldier was visible two hours later, but no serious Mexican effort to stem the flow of cars had been apparent.’
‘The United Nations and Yemeni Houthi Ansarullah movement have reached an agreement to restart a new round of peace talks with negotiators from the resigned government of former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi to end the nearly two-year-old conflict in the Arab country.
The United Nations special envoy for Yemen, Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed, said on Monday that he had recently met with Ansarullah and the General People’s Congress leaders, and the two sides had agreed on talks in the Jordanian capital city of Amman on the formation of a ceasefire committee before the UN-sponsored peace talks later this year, Lebanon-based Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television news network reported.’
‘Dozens of Bahraini demonstrators have engaged in clashes with regime forces to express their strong opposition to the Al Khalifah regime’s harsh crackdown on political dissidents and pro-democracy campaigners and condemn assaults on residential buildings.
The protesters took to the streets in the village of Ma’ameer, situated about 15 kilometers south of the capital, Manama, on Monday and threw Molotov cocktails at police vehicles. The marchers also set some tires on fire.
Regime forces fired tear gas canisters and rubber-coated bullets in return. There were no immediate reports of casualties or arrests.’
‘Nigerian authorities have warned that female Takfiri bombers are using babies to thwart detection before their attacks.
According to a new report, Nigerian officials stated that terrorist groups have been using women to carry out bombing attacks for some time but the use of babies in attacks signals a “dangerous” trend.
The report, published by the state-run BBC on Monday, called these bombings “suicide attacks,” but the fact that the innocent infants have no forethought or deliberation for killing themselves and others render the terminology null and void.
On January 13, two women wearing concealed explosives managed to slip past a checkpoint in the town of Madagali and detonate their bombs, killing themselves and four other people. The assailants were able to slip past security because they were mistaken for civilians as they were carrying infants.’
‘Palestinian demonstrators have marched on the Israeli Knesset in protest to the death of a Bedouin villager killed by Israeli forces during a demolition raid in the village of Umm al-Hayran.
During the Monday protests held in East Jerusalem al-Quds, the demonstrators demanded the release of the body of Yaqoub Mousa Abu al-Qian, who was killed last Wednesday.
Israelis claimed Qian rammed Israeli officers with his vehicle and left an officer dead, but witnesses described the Israeli narrative as being fabricated.
The protesters also censured the recent destruction of Palestinian homes and Tel Aviv’s approval of the construction of hundreds of new Israeli settler units in East Jerusalem al-Quds.’
