“Biodiversity,” a key component of  Agenda 21, is joining “climate change” in the UN’s mantra lineup as a frontline tool for promoting world government.

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.

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.

U.S. troops and U.S.-trained Iraqi forces uncovered about 5,000 chemical weapons in Iraq between 2004 and 2011 and soldiers were injured by these weapons in six instances. However, the weapons had not been manufactured during an active, ongoing chemical weapons program, which the Bush administration cited as justification for the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

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.
