Where Does Our Foreign Affairs Money Go?

Hot on the heels of my earlier post on the UN’s nuclear weapons ‘ban’, a lot of people have asked me how much money Australia hands over to organisations like the UN.

It’s a question I’m regularly asked and very understandable: because once you see just how much time is wasted at the UN, it’s only natural to wonder how much of your taxes go into it and other similar organisations.

Everybody Relax: the UN Has Banned Nuclear Weapons

If you want to know how pathetic the UN truly is, look no further than its recent treaty ‘banning’ nuclear weapons.

In reporting this gross waste of time, the Pravda arm of Sky News (a.k.a. skynews.com.au) proudly proclaims that 122, yes, count them, one hundred and twenty two (!), countries have signed up to the treaty… to loud applause and cheers! Sounds like something important was achieved doesn’t it?

Rudd’s UN Failure Shows Again That the Delcons Won

Anyone who thinks that the supposedly deluded conservative base of the Liberal Party didn’t win – or achieve exactly what it set out to achieve from the 2016 federal election – needs to look at the Kevin Rudd’s failed UN campaign and think again.

Climate Wankathon Begins

In the lead up to the Paris climate conference, I suggested that Obama thought people in Syria wouldn’t be so angry if global warming hadn’t made it so damn hot over there.

Perhaps having taken my encouragement, Prince Charles then chimed in and said that climate change was the ‘root cause’ of the Syrian war (yes, really).

Climate Funds Mobilised

Two weeks ago, Julie Bishop signed Australia up to the UN’s ‘Sustainable Development Goals’. Within that was Goal 13, Target 4: (CommunismClimate Action):

China Joins UN Climate Change Feel Good Party

According to news.com.au and Federal Opposition environment spokesman Mark Butler, China has made a ‘spectacular move’ in terms of its climate change policy – and Australia should be following suit… or else.

Before we join them in getting down on our knees and praising China, let’s expose this for the complete dog’s droppings it really is.

Hungry? Have Some Internet

Something tells me I’ve read more of the 17 ‘goals’ and 169 ‘targets’ in the UN’s ‘Sustainable Development Goals’ than Mark Zuckerberg, Bill and Melinda Gates, the folks over at Sky News and the dimwits at the UN who drafted them (possibly all put together).

In the race to seem good, the following pledge has come hot on the heels of the UN’s latest agenda:

What Has Julie Bishop Signed?

Julie Bishop has endorsed new global development goals that aim to reduce poverty over the next 15 years.

Any time I see our politicians agreeing to a UN ‘agenda’, I get very suspicious. In this case, Australia has signed up to the UN’s ‘Sustainable Development Goals’, replete with 17 goals and 169 targets. That’s right, 169.

You would think that we would get some detail of what we’ve agreed to. Not so. Instead, Sky News thought it would be better to provide us with a sound bite instead:
