TRUMP Speech at UN was exactly Trump

Another UN General Assembly and apparently the only speaker was Trump, because according to the media, no one else apparently said – anything… The entire mélange of dialogue from Deutscheland to France, to New York to The Economist has been the edification of Trump. Using such verbiage as “rhetoric”, the German newspaper quoted a number of students studying “Presidential Rhetoric” as their college major.   Really?  I wonder how many jobs there are for a major in presidential rhetoric…?

While Trump spoke as Trump does, it is odd that anyone would be surprised. What exactly did anyone expect?

The ‘rhetoric’ referenced centered around his comments regarding North Korea and Iran. The alter-rhetoric suggests that if the US backs out of the Iran deal, they will ramp up their proliferation of nuclear capabilities… As in pinky swear I won’t? What? Iran is going to do what Iran wants no matter what ‘deal’ is flitting about. And Kim Jong Un is going to continue strutting about like a cock in search of a hen until – he decides not to.

The media also seems to take issue with the concept that Trump conveyed, “America First”. As the media so wearily continues to do, it failed to present the entire dialogue; America is first for Trump, just as Germany should be first for Merkel, France for Macron, etc… In other words, he advocates sovereignty, a concept that the Socialists and Communists abhor, because it nullifies Globalism, a one world monetary system, and an effective UN centrist Communist government.

Trump also took aim at the UN budget, specifically, the “Peacekeeping” budget that is nearly $8 billion and counting. Given the UN’s Peacekeeping record is abysmal at best, and laughable by most accounts, in my opinion they could easily be neutralized from existence, as in – cut.

*The UN Peacekeepers and UK established the Israeli territory after WWII that they now claim should be given to the Palestinians because they goofed and the Palestinians are miffed and the UN feels bad.

*The UN has been the moniker monitor of peace between North and South Korea… not doing so well.

*The UN has brought peace and prosperity to Sudan… to The Congo… to Ukraine… to Venezuela… to Rwanda, the Ivory Coast, Haiti, Somalia, Cambodia, Mozambique…

Rife with scandals involving prostitution, sex trafficking, and sexual abuse, their successes are nowhere to be found.

In fact, the UN Secretary General, Guterres, who belongs to the Socialist Party and is a member of The Council on Foreign Relations, is calling on ‘world leaders’ to repair the world that has fallen into conflict, disarray and violence, effectively acknowledging that their Peacekeeping unit is defective, obsolete and worthless. Who edited his speech?

The only other speaker on the roster would appear to be Macron. Coming out of hiding after the expose regarding his obsession with expensive ‘makeup’, Macron’s words were exactly what we would expect – Socialism and Globalism.   The difference? Macron talks, but has no action other than applying makeup and hosting a few dinners. His actionable account is a qualified – zero.

Again the topic of choice for Macron and Guterres was the Paris Climate Change Agreement which is not a contract at all but a suggestion of pinky swear cooperation for which France has paid $0 into the pledged coffers. Obama put in $1 billion of the $3 billion he pledged toward the $100 billion per year budget. Analysts predict that budget will rise to more than $420 billion per year by 2020. Who is going to actually pay? To date roughly $5 billion has actually been raised including the $1 billion from US…  That’s pathetic.

China says they can’t reduce emissions until 2030, North Korea says they plan to increase emissions by 300%, Syria has said nothing, gasp, they are a country of rubble, and the money is supposedly going toward developing countries who produce -0- emissions. What the hey!

Fodder for Presidential Rhetoric majors analyzing Trump might want to consider the massive rhetoric being parlayed around the climate change ‘discussions’. But hey, it sounds good when blustering journalists and Hollywooders raise their fist and ‘demand’…

I have an idea!  Why doesn’t the UN pledge their entire Peacekeeping Budget to Climate Change in China…

UN – A Corrupted Waste; Rebuilding Syria – Trillions in the Making

The UN is demanding $4.63billion in additional aid to help Syrians recover from their devastation, and to subsidize countries who are hosting Syrians. Of course the demand for money comes with a threat, if it is not forthcoming then there will be dire consequences not just for Syrians, but for all refugees and for the host countries…

I don’t know about you, but when someone demands money under the strong arm of a threat, it sounds more like ‘blackmail’.   But it is always the aftermath of an attempted coup gone seriously awry: Bomb a country, murder its people, leave it in disastrous rubble, no infrastructure, and then demand money to fix said country from the same people who bombed it.

So now, after spending trillions on a war We The People and They The People never wanted, depleting our budget, our economy, and our livelihoods, we are being told we have to repair said country out of our tax dollars. And if we don’t? We are being threatened by the very agency that did absolutely nothing to mitigate or stop the war despite their claim that they are a success in ‘bringing peace to the world’ – The United Nations.

After 3 years of useless bombing by the US and EU, Russia, Iraq and the Syrian government have successfully put a truce and end to the fighting in place. A truce between the CIA backed and Pentagon backed rebels vs. the Syrian government that we desperately fought to displace in a failed coup.  A sickening deplorable crime.

So why is the UN even asking for money? What have they done that warrants them – anything?

The UN, lays claim to five major successes since their inception in 1945: The eradication of smallpox, the promotion of arms control, helping to save the lives of 9 million children, protecting the ozone, and saving the pyramids.

WOW! Imagine if a corporation laid claim to similar feats after 71 years while riddled in mismanagement, corruption, fraud, sexual molestation, and theft. According to it’s audited 181 page financials for 2014, they devoted 3 entire pages to internal fraud cases, and nearly 30 pages to the status of audit recommendations from 2013.  I guess that would deplete their $5.3 billion Development Budget…keeping their records straight.

With assets totaling about $6.5 billion on liabilities of under $1.9billion, and annual revenue for the ‘Development Program’ at roughly $5 billion, about 6% of their expenses actually went towards grants and ‘other transfers’, while the remainder of expenses, $5billion were utilized to maintain the UN staff, consultants, and office, resulting in a deficit of about $330million.

Impressive?  Hardly!

The Development Program is only one agency/subsidiary of the UN and names four inherent duties: poverty reduction, sustainable development, peacebuilding and climate and disaster resilience. They don’t actually spend their budget to do anything other than to ask for more money for everyone else to do – something.

I’d say they had failed on all fronts – massively. In addition, as a ‘charitable’ organization, why do they need to hold $6.5 billion in cash and investments? But then they do provide annual leave, pensions, full medical benefits during and post employment, home-leave benefits, termination benefits, repatriation grants and ‘other lump sum payments’.

Its more perverse failures have included Somalia, Bosnia, Rwanda, Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Syria, Congo, Sri Lanka and Haiti. They are so bloated that they have now adopted ‘advisory committees for ‘indigenous people’ for ‘sustainable forest management’, and ‘coordinating efforts of NGO’s’ (that would include Soros Open Society), as well as promoting abortions, vaccination overseers, agriculture overseers, education overseers, World Bank, WHO, and a host of agencies that ‘DO’ nothing but watch over those who are ‘DOING’ utilizing revenue from alternate sources.

In other words, they are The Middle Man taking a hefty cut to bully more money from countries in order for them to do the hard work.

And now they are demanding $4.63billion for Syrian people and for subsidies for host countries, aka, Germany, Sweden, and Turkey. Will the money go towards rebuilding Syria? No. That is a completely separate BILL which is estimated to reach between $180 and $200 billion, not including loss of economic wealth, and the decades it will take to re-emerge as a viable economy – after a failed coup that ushered in ISIS, displaced millions, and murdered hundreds of thousands – in the name of PEACE.

Sickening.

UN – A Cesspool of Condemnation

UN Chief Ban Ki Moon condemns airstrikes by US backed Saudi’s that kill Yemeni civilians.

UN Chief Ban condemns Saudi bombing of hospital in Yemen.

UN Chief Ban condemns Saudi airstrike on school which killed children…

UN Chief Ban asks for bombing to stop…

But nothing changes.

The Special Envoy of the UN Secretary-General, Ismail Ould Chelkh Amed – is Sunni. The entire conflict is between the Houthi’s who are Shiite, and the Saudi’s who are Sunni. It was instigated by the Saudi’s and has been supported both militarily and defacto by the US and the UK. And so it is no surprise that the UN and the Sunni Special Envoy – do absolutely – nothing.

By contrast, the UN and Human Rights have issued explicit warnings to Philippine President Duterte for the unprecedented crack-down on drug lords in the country that has resulted in 650 killings of known ‘meth pushers’ by police. The drug syndicate has been a major problem for years, controlling large swathes of the country and killing scores. The crime rate in the Philippines rose nearly five fold between 2012 and 2014.

In 2012, the same UN that is now condemning Duterte’s aggressive tact for eliminating the drug problem, claimed that the Philippines had the highest rate of meth drug use in eastern Asia, and ‘condemned’ the government for doing nothing. Drugs were openly peddled in parks and bars.  Duterte’s recent election was based on his determination to clean the Philippines of drugs and give the country back to its people.  And the UN doesn’t like the way he is doing it.

So why does the UN turn a relative blind-eye to the over 10,000 Yemen deaths by the Saudi’s, 93% of which are reportedly civilians including children?

The UN has recently admitted that the cholera epidemic which hit Haiti – SIX years ago – was brought by UN peacekeepers. Over 10,000 deaths and hundreds of thousands sickened… And what has the UN done? It is asking for money, otherwise they have done – absolutely – nothing.

Following the deadly earthquakes that hit yesterday in Italy and Myanmar, the UN is ‘standing by monitoring the situation’…

The UN is upset that the Ukrainian government continues to randomly bomb and kill civilians in eastern Ukraine, with the death toll reaching 10,000.  They ‘condemn’ the bombings and killings…

The primary objective of the UN is the maintenance of peace and security. I’d say, they failed. Roughly 44,000 people are employed by the UN. In 2010, the UN was spending roughly $14 billion with an employment tally of about 22,000. The budget numbers are somewhat of a mystery given the UN has a ‘regular’ budget, a ‘peacekeeping’ budget, a ‘core’ budget, a ‘systems’ budget, and a budget for ‘extra’s’.

The US State Department funds approximately $8billion of the UN’s peacekeeping and regular budgets. But that’s just the somewhat transparent portion because we also fund them through alternate avenues such as the US Department of Agriculture, the US Department of Energy, and the Department of Health and Human Services. Those fundings are ‘not so transparent’.

The UN also has Specialized Agencies, which are considered independent as far as funding is concerned. They include: International Labour Organization, Food and Agriculture Organization, UNESCO, International Civil Aviation, WHO, World Bank, IMF, Universal Postal Union, International Telecommunication Union, World Meteorological Organization, International Maritime Org., World Intellectual Property Org., International Fund for Agricultural Development, UN Industrial Development Org., and World Tourism Org. Within each of these agencies, there are numerous committees, programmes and commissions… all with an extended hand looking for $$$$$$$$$.

Despite their lucrative salaries and benefits, their $54 billion pension fund is stated to be a virtual mess with payments six months or more in arrears and allegations of mismanagement, corruption and conflicts of interest. The UN is a cesspool of absolute waste.

What the HEY! So, in addition to ‘peace’ which they have done a bang-up job on, they now regulate and/or condemn; food, agriculture, telecommunications, labor unions, the climate, the seas, patents, tourism, governments, prisons, industry and all air travel.

In October 2001, the UN won the Nobel Peace Prize for its ‘more peaceful world’. The obvious irony is of course that it was awarded just two weeks after 9-11. In 2000 there were upwards of 200 terrorist attacks worldwide!  Not exactly a more ‘peaceful’ world.

And the slush fund is – growing.

UN Honors – Saudi Arabia For Human Rights

Saudi Arabia:

“Wanted: no previous experience required. Must be able to lift heavy sword. Must not fear blood and death. Good pay and health benefits. Hours of employment – flexible. May be asked to perform additional duties, such as amputations and torture. No recruiters please, only serious Male candidates should apply.”

United Nations:

“Wanted: Human Rights Advocate. Must uphold the greatest value of human rights and human dignity, unless torture and public executions are deemed necessary for The Greater Good, in which case, go for it. but make sure not to get any of that blood on my Armani suit.  And as for women and children, we adamantly agree that they are inferior, so whatever suppression you deem appropriate we uphold and will never challenge. Indiscriminate civilian bombing is okay too as long as you make sure to call it ‘coalition’ bombing in the name of terrorism. Okay then, that about sums it up… oh and must rank among the lowest in the world for social and economic freedom.”

The United Nations.

NewsFlash – “UN launches $25 billion strategy to end preventable deaths of mothers and children.”

I have a solution, and it doesn’t cost $25 billion… stop! That’s it. Just stop. Stop bombing Yemen. Stop beheading civilians. Stop torture. Stop denying women rights.

On Yemen: “UN urges parties to stop this fighting and return to negotiating table…”

According to NATO, Yemen’s problems are: water shortage, unemployment, poverty, lack of education, oil rich, corruption, rural population, al Qaeda in the Peninsula, radical Shi’a clerics, and division.

Saudi, NATO, US solution: Bomb everyone, eradicate the entire population and instill puppet government– end of problem.

Oh wait… al Qaeda… no matter.

Like Syria… no matter.

So when did the UN become an ineffective corrupt institution? After being roiled in abuses and corruption for decades, most recently the oil for food scandal in Baghdad kickbacks, the UN set up a self regulating anti-corruption task force in 2006. After just two years, they declared everything was hunky-dory and disbanded in 2008. Who decided that?  Why the UN General Assembly did.  You see, the UN is given complete authority to hide everything from financial opacity to internal department opacity, to censorship. Their power is absolute.

UN Peacekeepers were charged with rape, sexual abuse, gun running, and abuse. But what has been done since the allegations? Well, the head of the Peacekeeping agency was sacked… and that’s it. Will the abuse stop? No! It’s been an issue for decades – decades! And the UN is the perpetrator. The same UN using $25 billion to end preventable deaths, the same UN spending billions on Human Rights, the same UN that is required to provide NO financial accountability. The same UN that elects Saudi Arabia as one of their ambassadors for Human Rights.

The issue with the UN stems from issues with its leadership, past and present, specifically Ban Ki Moon. Former representatives, employees and delegates, have expressed concerns over internal favoritism, of control over internal audits and investigations, over corruption charges, over refusal to hand over court ordered documents and over the constant deference to ‘immunity’ despite heinous abuses and crime.

While Ban Ki Moon is considered a gentle person, a man content to be in the shadows, a man humble and courteous, these are qualities of a monk, not a world leader. And so goes the UN having accomplished little to nothing with no oversight and a chaotic over-growth of governmental quackery.

The rule and law within the agency has been described by former under-secretary, Inga-Britt Alhenius, as deplorable and seriously embarrassing, an agency drifting into irrelevance.

Bringing Saudi Arabia into the Human Rights council is wholly a political move that further discredits the entire value structure and reputation of the UN.  It is truly beyond any moral, ethical or value system in our careening spiral into complete depravity.

So how much does the US ante up to this organization?

No one is exactly sure… You see, while the US is on the hook for roughly 25% of the budget, no one wants to advertise what that budget actually is because, well, then they’d have to actually tell us how it is spent.

Apparently, there are two budgets, a core and a system budget. As of 2011, some estimated the system budget at $25 billion which would put the US obligation at roughly $6 billion. But there are no numbers for the ‘core budget’. Even Susan Rice of the US State Department refused to provide any answer when asked about the UN Budget numbers. Stonewalled, we can ante up our tax dollars indiscriminately, or we can ask for accountability.

If the US ante’s up six, ten, fifteen billion annually, and if Saudi Arabia votes against the US in typical referendums over 70% of the time, and the US continues to give foreign aid to Saudi Arabia, and Saudi Arabia continues to mutilate it’s citizens, persecute its women and crucify its children – what the HECK ARE WE DOING?
