With two U.S. states having already nullified United Nations agreements and federal statutes purporting to prohibit drugs across the globe, the Obama administration and other governments — some of which already bucked the UN drug war as well — have been quietly prodding the UN to relax its “interpretations” of the increasingly controversial global drug-prohibition regime. However, while the planetary “war on drugs” may be slowly crumbling, the globalist forces behind it are busy laying the foundations of new UN-led machinations under the guise of dealing with narcotics, crime, health, and more.

As more than one billion people oppressed under United Nations member regimes struggle to live on less than $1 a day, the UN’s “human rights” brigades visited Detroit this week — where the average welfare benefits amount to almost $30,000 per year — to call for a national “affordability standard” for water. According to the planetary human-rights bureaucrats, the taxpayers and the bankrupt city government must continue to provide water even for residents who have not paid their bill in months because apparently free water services are now among the “most basic human rights.”

In addition to having essentially no medical qualifications for the newly invented “Ebola czar" post aside from serving as a lobbyist for a pharmaceutical firm, attorney and political operative Ron Klain is under fire after a video surfaced of him declaring that “growing population” — particularly in Africa — was the “top leadership challenge” for the world today. Critics expressed outrage over the comments, especially considering warnings by demographic experts of an upcoming plunge in population caused by a dramatic decline in birthrates across most of the world. But news reports citing insiders suggest that President Obama has even bigger plans for Klain within the administration than exploiting the Ebola scare to advance tyranny.

UN Security Council Adds More Tyrants

As the socialist rulers of Venezuela continue their brutal crackdown on the increasingly outraged and economically destitute population, United Nations member governments — including a majority of the European Union — overwhelmingly selected Venezuelan strongman Nicolas Maduro’s regime to join other unsavory regimes and dictatorships on the UN Security Council. Also appointed to sit on the powerful 15-member council, which purports to have the authority to deploy UN “peace” troops around the world to enforce its decrees, was the longtime Marxist-Leninist regime ruling Angola.

Citing the threat of Ebola spreading further domestically, the largest labor union for registered nurses in the United States called on Obama to “invoke his executive authority” to commandeer hospitals and essentially declare himself to be medical dictator. In a letter to the president, the National Nurses United group, which has faced controversy for its radical activism in the past, called on Obama to “order” all U.S. hospitals to meet “uniform, national standards and protocols” under the guise of protecting patients, healthcare workers, and the public. However, aside from the fact that Obama has no such “executive authority,” critics say forcing all hospitals to follow the same dubious standards is the worst possible idea if protecting people is truly the goal.

After forcibly blocking and even removing members of the press from the taxpayer-funded conclave in Moscow, the United Nations World Health Organization voted in secret this week to support a planetary tax regime for tobacco products. The controversial measure demands that national governments around the world drastically increase taxes on cigarettes. More than a few analysts, though, suggested that the move was a mere stepping stone on the road toward global taxes paid directly to the dictator-dominated UN “health” agency or other self-styled global “authorities” — a plot pushed by globalists for decades using any conceivable pretext that would unleash unfathomable consequences on humanity.

Amid fast-growing pressure on the U.S. dollar’s status as the global reserve currency, authorities in the United Kingdom this week successfully issued sovereign bonds denominated in Communist China’s strictly controlled currency known as the yuan or renminbi. It was the first such bond issue in the Western world, and the largest non-Chinese bond ever sold, according to news reports. While the initial scheme was relatively small — worth about US$500 million, contrasted with about US$200 billion in yearly U.K. government borrowing — its implications for the dollar and the international monetary system could be profound in the longer term, analysts said.

The federal government has known for five decades that blacks were even more susceptible than whites to serious damage from fluoride added to water supplies, but it urged local governments to fluoridate the population anyway, according to newly released documents. In addition to knowingly causing major dental damage known as “fluorosis” to whites and especially blacks through the controversial forced mass-medication scheme, federal health officials never even bothered to inform blacks about the risks. Despite the mounting scientific evidence of harm and the ethical concerns surrounding the involuntary medical treatment, authorities across the United States continue fluoridating public water supplies.

After being ridiculed for squandering taxpayer funds on a 2003 “climate” report that, despite being widely hyped in the establishment press, got literally everything wrong, Obama’s cadres of “global-warming” alarmists at the Pentagon are at it again. In a report released this week, Obama’s Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel parroted a wide range of discredited talking points about “climate change,” with the Defense Department vowing to spend even more public and borrowed wealth to integrate dubious theories on “global warming” into all aspects of the military. The U.S. armed forces will also increasingly be used to prop up anti-American regimes and globalism under the guise of battling “climate change."

The bankrupt Socialist rulers of France are under attack by the monster they helped create and empower. This week, French officials are facing off against European Union finance bosses over a bloated national government budget — EU bosses say the numbers must be slashed before they can be “approved” by Brussels, but French politicians are refusing. Without a resolution to the conflict, the European Commission — a sort of hybrid legislative and executive branch run largely by armies of unaccountable bureaucrats — might overrule Paris and reject its proposed spending spree for next year.
