The Vinuela reservoir is seen with a low water level due to a lack of rain in la Vinuela, southern Spain, Feb. 22, 2022. Declining agricultural yields in Europe, and the battle for diminishing water resources, especially in the southern part of the continent, are key risks as global temperatures continue to rise. These conclusions are part of a new United Nations report that will help countries decide how to prevent the planet from warming further. (AP Photo/Carlos Gil) ** FILE **

The U.N. is coming for your water

The United Nations is holding a conference on water in New York, a gathering that some say could be a "Paris moment" -- meaning, the global body could soon do for water what it's sought to do, via treaty, for the climate. The U.N. is coming to control the world's water. Published March 23, 2023

The ‘climate time-bomb’ is coming!

The U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issued its new findings and woe to the world, run to the caves, a "climate time-bomb" is coming. So much for that 12-year thing promised by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. It's go time. It's bomb time. Published March 21, 2023

China’s coming ‘Global Civilization’ is evil cloaked in good

Xi Jinping just called for a worldwide embrace of a "global civilization initiative" that focused on the furtherance of "peace, development, equity, justice, democracy and freedom." This is laughable. At least -- this should be laughable. Published March 17, 2023

Trump scores big by earning disapproval of globalists

The former secretary-general of NATO said if Donald Trump won a second term in the White House, the world would suffer a "geopolitical catastrophe" because of the likely halt of American funding for Ukraine that would come. This is probably the best endorsement yet for Trump. Published March 16, 2023

CDC now pushing sex shot for kids

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention writes this: "HPV is a common virus that can cause cancers later in life" and is spread by "vaginal, anal, or oral sex."

Alejandro Mayorkas is a liar who blames open border on climate change

Homeland Security's Alejandro Mayorkas suggested "extreme weather events" -- climate change -- was to blame for the mass migration across the border that has resulted in historic levels of illegals in America.

Democrats continue to buy Black votes

In California, Democrats are considering a $640 billion measure that would dole out $360,000 to eligible Black residents for slavery that wasn't even sanctioned in that state. This is how Democrats win elections. They divide, then swoop in to conquer. Published March 7, 2023

Face mask foolishness emboldening criminals in NYC, elsewhere

Face masked criminals whose identities are concealed are getting away with so many crimes in New York City that police are now asking store owners to refuse service to those who won't first remove their facial coverings. This is about as "no duh" a moment as can come. Published March 2, 2023

Bond, James Bond, gets the P.C. censors treatment
