[Editor’s note: The US is rapidly turning into a larger clone of the brutal, cruel, criminal state of Israel. Pulling out of the UN Human Rights group because it is ‘not fair to Israel’ is one of the most blatant signs that the US is now nothing more than an Israeli puppet.
As VT has reported on in almost exhaustive detail, Trump was inserted into office by an Israeli plot carried out by pro-Israel traitors inside the US in concert with Israeli assets both inside the US and in British intelligence; groups like Black Cube and Cambridge Analytica played key roles, exposing just how deep Israeli infiltration and influence run.
While the US does have a shameful track record when it comes to how it treats non-white people, it is hard to see the latest disgraceful and disgusting developments in how it handles migrants from the south of it’s borders as anything but Israeli-inspired. Who else other than Israel and it’s US puppet would treat poor, innocent children with such callous disregard?
Of course, there are still millions of moronic Americans who think Trump is doing a good job because they still have their guns, meaning they are still free, and he’s doing something about all those horrible brown-skinned ‘beaners’ and drug smugglers crossing the southern border. The rest of the world remains aghast at these heavily armed racist idiots and in dread fear that the Trump presidency is going to drag the world into a deep financial and political crisis, perhaps even a third world war.
The rest of the world already, by and large, hates the USA, a most understandable viewpoint given that it is a nation that has spent the last 70-odd years telling us how exceptional it is while at the same time massacring millions of innocents around the globe and carrying out regime changes wherever and whenever it pleases. If the US people want to do something to reverse this distaste, they need to get rid of Trump ASAP and then go after the traitors and foreign assets who put him in power and really run the USA. Ian]

US to pull out of UN human rights body, reports suggest
The US plans to pull out of the United Nations Human Rights Council, a Trump administration source told Reuters.
US secretary of state Mike Pompeo and US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley will make the announcement on Tuesday, the source said.
The US is half-way through a three-year term on the main UN rights body and had long threatened to quit if it was not reformed, accusing the 47-member Geneva-based body of being anti-Israel.
Reuters reported last week that activists and diplomats said talks with the US on reforms had failed to meet Washington’s demands, suggesting that the Trump administration would quit.
Washington’s pullout would be the latest US rejection of multilateral engagement after it pulled out of the Paris climate agreement and the Iran nuclear deal.
It also comes as the US faces intense criticism for detaining children separated from their immigrant parents at the US-Mexico border. UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein on Monday called on Washington to halt its “unconscionable” policy.
UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric declined to comment until a decision was announced, but added: “The secretary-general is a strong believer in the human rights architecture of the UN and the active participation of all states.”
When the Human Rights Council was created in 2006, US president George W Bush’s administration shunned the body.
Then under Barack Obama the US was elected to the body for a maximum two consecutive terms on the council by the UN General Assembly. After a year off, Washington was re-elected in 2016 for its current third term.
In March 2011, the UN General Assembly unanimously suspended Libya’s membership in the council because of violence against protesters by forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gadafy. But UN officials said no member has withdrawn.
Ms Haley said a year ago that Washington was reviewing its membership and called for reform and elimination of a “chronic anti-Israel bias”. The body has a permanent standing agenda item on suspected violations committed by Israel in the occupied Palestinian territories that Washington wants removed.
“The UN Human Rights Council has played an important role in such countries as North Korea, Syria, Myanmar and South Sudan, but all Trump seems to care about is defending Israel,” said Human Rights Watch executive director Ken Roth.
The council last month voted to investigate killings in Gaza and accused Israel of excessive use of force. The US and Australia cast the only “no” votes. Israel’s ambassador in Geneva castigated the council for “spreading lies against Israel”.
