Is it a coincidence that United Nations vehicles are being staged 1.5 hours away from Baltimore, one of the most violent cities in America? Probably not. I think the Federal Government got a rude awakening after watching the Baltimore riots unfold and realized how ill equipped major cities were to handle civil uprisings. Less than one year after the Baltimore riots the U.S. agreed to allow U.N. peacekeeping troops and police to use force to protect civilians in armed conflicts according to this Military Times report:
The United States has announced its support for a set of principles that give a green light for U.N. peacekeeping troops and police to use force to protect civilians in armed conflicts.
U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power told a high-level U.N. meeting Wednesday focusing on the responsibility to protect civilians that the United States was “proud” and “humbled” to join 28 other countries that have pledged to abide by the 18 pledges.
U.N. peacekeepers from these 29 countries are now required to act in cases where civilians are in danger.
“The Kigali Principles are designed to make sure that civilians are not abandoned by the international community again,” she said, recalling how U.N. peacekeepers left Rwanda before the 1994 genocide and Srebrenica before the 1995 massacre.
What this means is obvious: that the U.S. government — meaning, at the moment, the Trump administration — has the unilateral and unchecked power to force the removal of anyone it wants from Facebook and Instagram by simply including them on a sanctions list. Does anyone think this is a good outcome? Does anyone trust the Trump administration — or any other government — to compel social media platforms to delete and block anyone it wants to be silenced? As the ACLU’s Jennifer Granick told the Times:
It’s not a law that appears to be written or designed to deal with the special situations where it’s lawful or appropriate to repress speech. … This sanctions law is being used to suppress speech with little consideration of the free expression values and the special risks of blocking speech, as opposed to blocking commerce or funds as the sanctions was designed to do. That’s really problematic.
Jude, Hi, my name is Bill. I have had an experience when my daughter was in middle school, she is a senior this year. I was dropping her off to school one morning and as I got to stop to drop her off I noticed a huge saucer shaped disc at tree top level, this thing was 100 yards long, silver with lights going around it. It would be visible only for 30 seconds at a time and disappear and reappear. My daughter and i just stared at it. Mesmerized. The couple of cars around me did not notice it or could not see it which is what I believe. My daughter said wow God really did make aliens, I told her no honey He didn’t those are fallen ones/demons trying to make us think they are aliens.
