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.
Already under fire for seeking to usurp new powers to control the Internet, the United Nations International Telecommunications Union (ITU) is facing intense criticism after appointing a Chinese Communist to lead the controversial UN agency starting next year. Even more alarming, perhaps, is that the new ITU boss claims censorship is in the eye of the beholder. On October 23, at an ITU summit in Busan, South Korea, member governments and dictatorships overwhelmingly selected Houlin Zhao of mainland China — where the dictatorship operates among the most Orwellian censorship regimes on Earth, currently working on overdrive to spin and conceal the uprising in Hong Kong — to serve as the UN outfit’s secretary general. Zhao joins a growing roster of Chinese Communist operatives in charge of powerful UN agencies.
Citing multiple real and imagined crises facing the world today, United Nations boss Ban Ki-moon celebrated the 69th anniversary of the dictator-dominated outfit he leads by claiming it is now “needed more than ever.” Rabidly pro-UN President Obama, meanwhile, issued a presidential proclamation celebrating “UN Day,” urging America’s 50 governors and all officials under the U.S. flag to also “observe” the controversial day with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.” Obama and the UN chief both suggested that the would-be global government should be further empowered, too.
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.
