As protests and looting continue in Ferguson, Missouri, following the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is demanding that local law enforcement adhere to what his office cryptically referred to as “international standards.” The latest UN meddling in U.S. affairs concerning local and state government is part of an accelerating trend, sparking alarm among critics of the dictator-dominated global outfit and advocates of national sovereignty. Those tempted to seek UN-inspired “international standards” for local police forces should be careful what they wish for.
Despite the Communist Cuban dictatorship’s more than five decades of brutality, oppression, and mass-murder, globalists and even Western Big Business interests are now involved in an orchestrated campaign to legitimize the Stalinist regime in Havana. From the United Nations and the global government-promoting Council on Foreign Relations to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, members of the U.S. Congress, and a powerful coalition of socialist rulers across Latin America, the Castro autocracy is increasingly being brought in from the cold after decades of pariah status.
At a fundraiser to build a memorial in Ottawa honoring victims of communism, conservatively estimated at around 100 million dead in the last century, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper lashed out at what he called the “evil” and “poisonous ideology” that brought about “hell on earth.” On behalf of the government of Canada, the Conservative Party leader also spoke out for the hundreds of millions of men, women, and children who have struggled and continue to struggle “against the tyranny of communism” — both those who lived, and those who did not.
Iran’s semi-official news agency, Fars, quoted a statement from Iranian Naval spokesman Admiral Afshin Rezayee Haddad on February 8 announcing that Iran is sending “a number of” warships to sail near the U.S. Atlantic Coast.
As part of the ongoing North American “integration” plot being pursued by Mexican and Canadian authorities in conjunction with all arms of the Obama administration’s federal bureaucracy, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced some $230,000 dollars in “grants” to two cities in Mexico. The controversial machinations are taking place under the banner of a “bi-national” program tied to NAFTA known as “Border 2020,” or “Frontera 2020” in Spanish. However, the latest EPA schemes in Mexico, while small, represent merely one component of what analysts say is a much broader effort to undermine U.S. national sovereignty.
Obama administration-backed Mexican troops opened fire this week on a group of civilians seeking to keep their weapons and rein in ruthless government-linked drug cartels, which have terrorized their communities in the state of Michoacán. The attack sparked an international outcry for the citizens, who have suffered non-stop brutality at the hands of both government officials and criminal syndicates. News reports, some of which conflict with each other, suggest that around a dozen people were shot and at least four were killed in the massacre, including an 11-year-old girl. A Mexican paper reported that a dozen civilians died in the clash.
For over a decade, under multiple administrations, the U.S. government had a secret agreement with the ruthless Mexican Sinaloa drug cartel that allowed it to operate with impunity, an in-depth investigation by a leading Mexican newspaper confirmed this week. In exchange for information and assistance in quashing competing criminal syndicates, the Bush and Obama administrations let the Sinaloa cartel import tons of drugs into the United States while wiping out Sinaloa competitors and ensuring that its leaders would not be prosecuted for their long list of major crimes. Other revelations also point strongly to massive but clandestine U.S. government involvement in drug trafficking.
Exasperated at failed attempts by the Mexican government to neutralize the drug cartel that virtually owns the Michoacán state, citizens are banding together into self-defense forces.
Communist China and Nicaragua's Sandinista government under Daniel Ortega are moving ahead with plans to build a $40-billion canal through Nicaragua, as China's footprint in Latin America grows.
