The United Nations, often ridiculed as the “dictators club” by critics, is actually the “Parliament of Humanity” and “a beacon for all humanity,” declared UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon (shown) in statements celebrating UN Day on the 70th anniversary of the global outfit's founding. In a bizarre speech given in New York City amid the controversial celebrations, the UN boss even went perilously close to deifying the scandal-plagued organization he leads, claiming it brings hope, peace, security, and sustenance to the world. He also said humanity has a duty to unite behind the UN and its blue flag. The dangerous implications of turning the dictator-dominated UN into a global parliament, though, were left unaddressed.
The extremist remarks from the UN chief came ahead of the UN's global celebration of UN Day on October 24. This year, the festivities saw hundreds of monuments — ranging from Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro and the Great Wall of China to the Empire State Building in New York City — turned “UN Blue” as part of a “turn the world UN Blue” gimmick. The theme of this year's anniversary: “Strong UN. Better World.” Various UN leaders, dictators, and government officials also praised the UN and its efforts. Obama, a staunch UN proponent, joined in, too, issuing a "presidential proclamation" urging all 50 governors and “officials of all other areas under the flag of the United States” to “observe United Nations Day with appropriate ceremonies and activities.” He also called on everyone to “summon the spirit of unity and cooperation at the heart of the United Nations Charter.”
To mark the occasion, which often sees American critics of the UN burn its controversial blue flag in anti-UN ceremonies, UN boss Ban said there is only one flag for all humanity: the UN flag. “National flags are a mark of pride and patriotism in every country around the world,” he said in a statement sent out with a press release. “But there is only one flag that belongs to all of us.” Growing up in wartime Korea, Ban continued, the blue flag of the UN was a “banner of hope for me.” Of course, the UN, its founders, and many of its member regimes were primarily responsible for the horrors Ban alluded to, so it was not immediately clear why the UN flag would represent a banner of hope. Meanwhile, the mass-murdering regime in North Korea remains a proud UN member to this day, with a vote in the UN General Assembly given equal weight to the vote of the U.S. government.
Still, seven decades after its founding at a summit chaired by American bureaucrat (and convicted Soviet communist agent) Alger Hiss, the founding father of the UN, the UN remains “a beacon for all humanity,” Ban claimed. “Every day, the United Nations feeds the hungry and shelters those driven from their homes,” the UN chief continued, apparently referring to the various scandal-plagued UN missions financed primarily by Western taxpayers. “The United Nations vaccinates children who would otherwise die from preventable diseases. The United Nations defends human rights for all, regardless of race, religion, nationality, gender or sexual orientation.”
By “human rights,” of course, the UN essentially means the opposite of the constitutionally protected, God-given rights enshrined in the U.S. Constitution's ten amendments. Under the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights, all of the privileges masquerading as rights are revokable under virtually any pretext, and according to Article 29, can never be used contrary to the “purposes and principles of the UN.” On the subject of UN vaccines, meanwhile, also touted Ban, Kenyan doctors and religious leaders last year, after lab tests at various labs around the world, concluded that the UN vaccines were laced with sterilizing agents and were being used as a form of UN-backed population control.
Ban also profusely praised the UN's scandal-plagued “peacekeeping” forces, which for decades have been systematically raping, killing, sexually abusing, exploiting, and trafficking innocent human beings — oftentimes children — under the guise of enforcing “peace.” Africans have been the primary victims, as The New American has documented extensively. And when whistleblowers have tried to expose the horrifying abuses, they are often persecuted relentlessly by the UN bureaucracy. Most recently, a senior UN official exposed “peacekeepers” raping children in the Central African Republic. The whistleblower was promptly escorted from his office under armed guard; as the most senior UN officials conspired at a secret meeting in Turin, Italy, to destroy him, leaked UN documents revealed.
“The United Nations works for the entire human family of seven billion people, and cares for the earth, our one and only home,” Ban continued in his remarks. “And it is the diverse and talented staff of the United Nations who help bring the Charter to life. … The timeless values of the UN Charter must remain our guide. Our shared duty is to 'unite our strength' to serve 'we the peoples'.” Again, the charter was created under the guidance and chairmanship of Hiss, the convicted Soviet spy that the UN hopes to shove down the Orwellian “memory hole.”
Speaking on the eve of UN Day at the Empire State Building, which was lit up in “UN blue” to mark the occasion, Ban went even further. “The Empire State Building is one of the most important landmarks in the world,” Ban told New York City officials and other guests, including Communist Chinese musician Lang Lang. “The United Nations is the ‘Parliament of Humanity.’ Today we come together.” Ban also said the UN appreciates its “diverse, dynamic host city” and said he hoped the blue lights would inspire the “global community” to “build a better future for all.” By “better future,” he was presumably referring to the UN's recently approved “Agenda 2030,” essentially a recipe for global socialism.
But it is hardly the first time the UN chief and others have shined a bit of light on their true agenda — transforming the UN into a true global government. Indeed, it appears that an overwhelming majority of the UN's member regimes — especially the most corrupt and oppressive among them — support the idea. As The New American reported last year in a massive story that was ignored by virtually every establishment media outlet in the world, a coalition of more than 130 governments and dictatorships known as the G77 Plus (Communist) China came together at a summit in Bolivia to demand empowering the UN General Assembly as an “emblem of global sovereignty.”
Ironically, the president of the UN General Assembly at that time, John Ashe, was arrested this month by U.S. authorities in a massive corruption and bribery scandal involving payments from Communist Chinese operatives. The government of Antigua and Barbuda, Ashe's homeland and a G77 member, was also implicated in the corruption scandal. Fortunately for humanity, then, the UN General Assembly was not yet an “emblem of global sovereignty” at the time the demands were made. The G77+China summit in Bolivia, under the banner “A New World Order to Live Well,” also called for a global currency, planetary wealth redistribution, a far more powerful UN better able to enforce its “mandates,” and much more.
Unsurprisingly, UN boss Ban was in Bolivia for the New World Order summit, praising the oftentimes brutal attendees and their mission to create a global totalitarian government. He also called on them to keep agitating for autocratic “sustainable development” and “solutions” to so-called “climate change,” a key pillar of the agenda to further empower the UN. “All countries need to act on these priorities — individually and collectively,” Ban told the attendees, claiming the “fate of billions” depended on the success of their efforts. “That is how I understand the theme of this Summit — a New World Order for Living Well.” As the largest bloc of governments in the UN, he added, they have a “key role” to play in advancing the global outfit’s goals.
A parliament, under the traditionally understood definition, is a sovereign body elected to represent the people it governs and make law. However, even the establishment outfit Freedom House calculated that just 45 percent of the UN's member governments and regimes can be considered fully democratic. Moreover, no other government on Earth was founded on the timeless, self-evident truths described in the U.S. Declaration of Independence: That all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, and that governments are instituted among men to protect those God-given rights. In other words, if the UN were to become an “emblem of global sovereignty,” or Ban's vision of a “Parliament of Humanity,” Americans could kiss their rights, self-government, Constitution, and independence goodbye.
As Senior Editor William F. Jasper outlined in a 2012 investigation for this magazine, the UN is now on the verge of becoming a full-fledged planetary government. It has, among other attributes, a brutal (and incompetent) war-making military force disguised as a “peacekeeping” army, kangaroo courts purporting to dispense international “justice,” an environmental ministry, a health ministry, and much, much more. It is now openly seeking global taxes and a global currency, which, if achieved, would remove the final restraint on the creation of a true global government, or, as Ban put it, a “Parliament of Humanity.”
The American Sovereignty Restoration Act, a bill currently sitting in the House Foreign Affairs Committee, would withdraw U.S. membership from the UN and evict the controversial outfit from U.S. soil. Rather than allowing the dictator-dominated global outfit to become a “Parliament of Humanity,” Americans should educate themselves on the threat posed to U.S. liberties and sovereignty by the UN. Once the danger is understood, Americans can work with their elected representatives to extricate the United States from the global “parliament,” thereby preserving their God-given liberties and their inherent right to govern themselves under the U.S. Constitution.
