Buried deep within an article by Agence France-Presse about former Soviet dictator Mikhail Gorbachev standing up for Russian strongman Vladimir Putin is an absolutely astounding admission: Former top diplomats for the Soviet Union told the French news agency that “the reunification of Germany was allowed on the condition that the USSR would participate in the new European order.”

The revelation is especially explosive considering Gorbachev’s past celebrations of what he publicly called the “new European soviet” — also known as the European Union — as well as the fact that the EU’s leadership is literally packed with “former” communists, many of them from the former Soviet Union. In light of the predictions and arguments made by Soviet defectors and more recent developments surrounding Russia and Europe, the claims make perfect sense, too.

With most U.S. troops supposedly on the verge of leaving the dubious new Afghan regime to stand (or crumble) largely on its own, the Communist Chinese dictatorship is stepping in to fill the void and reap the benefits — with the full support of the Obama administration. From providing authorities in Kabul with “security” assistance and foreign aid to investing in its economic development via oil and mining, Beijing has big plans for Afghanistan. In other words, as occurred in Iraq, it appears that the ruthless autocracy ruling mainland China is set to emerge as among the primary beneficiaries of the costly U.S. government “regime change” made in the “graveyard of empires,” which began more than a decade ago.

Faced with the well-documented implosion of its theories and a public that increasingly sees through the climate alarmism, the United Nations and its widely ridiculed global-warming panel are upping the ante yet again. With the release of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s “Synthesis Report,” the global outfit is now simply spreading easily debunked lies in its half-baked effort to build some semblance of support for a planetary regime to control humanity by rationing and taxing emissions of what scientists call the “gas of life.” However, as the mid-term elections showed clearly, in the United States in particular, the public is not buying the deception.

International Monetary Fund boss Christine Lagarde wants more of your taxpayer dollars, a lot more power for the IMF on the world stage, and a bigger voice for other largely autocratic members of the global outfit at the expense of the U.S. government’s influence. To get it, however, Lagarde first needs a reluctant U.S. Congress to approve a deeply controversial “reform” package being advanced by globalists, the Obama administration, the Council on Foreign Relations, and tyrants of various varieties around the world.

After “former” communist-guerrilla leader Dilma Rousseff narrowly secured reelection in Brazil last week with an alleged 51 percent of the vote, Obama promptly picked up the phone to congratulate her. According to the White House, Obama promised an even stronger “bilateral relationship” with the deeply controversial regime — packed with self-declared communists — that the U.S. government knows full well is at the center of the ongoing socialist takeover of Latin America. At the same time, a petition on Obama’s “We The People” page was asking Obama to position himself “against the Bolivarian communist expansion in Brazil promoted by the administration of Dilma Rousseff.” Despite surpassing the necessary 100,000-signature threshold required for the White House to issue a response, Obama has ignored it so far.

While virtually all the establishment-media attention surrounding nurse Kaci Hickox in recent days has focused on her defiant attitude toward efforts to quarantine her over potential exposure to Ebola, one important detail in the saga has gone almost completely unnoticed by the press: Hickox was trained as an “intelligence officer” by the federal government’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The revelation has sparked widespread speculation, especially considering White House intervention on her behalf and the fact that most of the press entirely omitted such an important fact. So far, however, it is not clear whether her work for the federal government played a role in the ongoing story, or what that role might be.

In one of the bluntest statements on the topic by any globalist thus far, controversial German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble openly called for “global standards” and “global governance” in taxation to ensure that governments can continue extracting huge sums in taxes from the wealth-producing class. In an October 30 column, Schäuble, who regularly promotes globalism and domestic police-state measures, also touted the global tax-information regime long pushed by socialists and globalists just signed in Berlin between more than 120 governments and regimes.

Under the guise of advancing what the United Nations calls “gender equality” and “sustainable development,” a new report by the UN Women agency is again pushing global abortion on demand, more sterilization programs and population-control schemes, massive government interference in family life, and much more. Much of the document, published this month, is written in opaque and deceptive language designed to at least partially conceal the extremism and outright barbarism being proposed. Still, critics of the UN machinations were able to see right through the deception, lambasting the UN for pushing totalitarian and horrific policies while trying to dupe the public.

A team of environmental “scientists” published a new study in a U.S. government-linked journal claiming that even a planetary Communist Chinese-style one-child policy would not be enough to stop alleged “overpopulation” from ravishing the Earth and making humanity “unsustainable.” In fact, according to the Australian researchers, even combined with massive reductions in population via another world war, a global one-child policy would still not be enough to save the planet and the environment from the supposed scourge of mankind. To deal with their reputed “crisis,” the authors propose encouraging — read brainwashing or perhaps even coercing — women to have fewer children while rationing resources for those humans fortunate enough to escape their population-control regime. But even that will not be enough, according to the paper.  

As debate in the United States rages surrounding the Ebola quarantines implemented in New York, Illinois, and New Jersey last week for health workers returning from West Africa, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon once again injected the United Nations and himself into the discussion — and into domestic U.S. affairs, part of an accelerating trend that has analysts sounding the alarm. Suggesting that the controversial quarantine policies announced on October 24 by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo were inappropriate, the UN boss called for Ebola measures based on “science” instead.
