The UN’s Assault On Our Sovereignty

While I was suspicious of Australia’s ascension to the UN Human Rights Council in October, this organisation’s recent behaviour confirms these concerns. Clearly, the Human Rights Council as well as the UN more generally, is not interested in genuine human rights, freedom, or transnational cooperation. Rather, it forces neo- Marxist, globalist agendas down the throats… Continue reading The UN’s Assault On Our Sovereignty

The Donald Trump Presidency

The following is an excerpt from Senator Benardi’s speech on the UN, following his 3 month parliamentary secondment to the organisation.

Israel

Why Israeli settlements are permissible

As President Obama recently betrayed Israel at the UN in a marked departure from conventional US foreign policy, now appears a fitting time to highlight why Israeli settlements in Palestinian territory are both legitimate and legal. MYTH “Israeli settlements are illegal.” FACT Jews have lived in Judea and Samaria—the West Bank—since ancient times. The only time… Continue reading Why Israeli settlements are permissible
