  • Endgame: U.N. Chief Guterres Calls for One Supreme Body of ‘Global Governance’

    Opinion| The Secretary General of The United Nations, Antonio Guterres, finally said what we all knew what he was going to say and called for the implementation a single one world government.I would sure bet that Guterres is going to suggest that the United Nations, which he is the head of, would be that singular authority with virtually unlimited and unchecked power.  Imagine my shock that a global bureaucrat would be looking to put the entire world under his thumb.“We need a networked multilateralism, bringing together the U.N. system, regional organizations, international financial institutions and others. And we need an...

    NEW YORK, June 26, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres is calling for a “multilateral” level of governance with the “teeth” to “function as an instrument of global governance where it is needed.” “The problem is that today’s multilateralism lacks scale, ambition and teeth,” Guterres said during a Thursday press conference on the launch of the UN’s “comprehensive response to COVID-19” — the novel coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, China. “And some of the instruments that do have teeth, show little or no appetite to bite, as has recently been the case with the difficulties faced by...

    The world needs an overarching level of multilateral governance that can sideline problematic “national interests” U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres said Thursday, as he lamented existing U.N. instruments such as the Security Council have teeth but “show little or no appetite to bite.” As the world body on Friday commemorates the 75th anniversary of the adoption of the U.N. Charter, the founding instrument of the globalist organisation, Guterres said there is a need to “re-imagine the way nations cooperate. (emphasis mine)” “We need a networked multilateralism, bringing together the U.N. system, regional organisations, international financial institutions and others. And we...

    The United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG) has removed a social media post that defended the right of Antifa to “freedom of expression” and “peaceful assembly” after considerable backlash following a report from Breitbart News. The now-deleted post, which also displayed the far-left movement’s flag, said: “UN Human Rights experts express profound concern over a recent statement by the US Attorney-General describing Antifa and other anti-fascist activists as domestic terrorists, saying it undermines the rights to freedom of expression and of peaceful assembly in the country.”

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Saturday criticized the U.N. Human Rights Council, after the controversial organization passed a resolution criticizing the state of policing and race in the U.S. -- even as it is accused of ignoring egregious human rights violations from those on the council itself. “The United Nations Human Rights Council, now comprised of Venezuela and recently, Cuba and China, has long been and remains a haven for dictators and democracies that indulge them,” Pompeo said in a statement. “It is a grave disappointment to those genuinely seeking to advance human dignity. Even so, the Council’s decision...

    The top U.N. human rights body agreed on Monday to hold an urgent debate on allegations of “systemic racism, police brutality and violence against peaceful protests” in the United States and elsewhere on Wednesday. The U.N. Human Rights Council’s decision followed a request last week by Burkina Faso on behalf of African countries in response to the killing of George Floyd, an African American, on May 25 under the knee of a white Minneapolis police officer. His death has ignited protests across the nation and worldwide. “We think it is a moment to really discuss this issue, as you have...

    A 29-mile convoy through southern Oregon, followed by a rally, followed by a direct appeal to the White House, and a decision by the Department of the Interior. That’s what it took to open up irrigation water for farmers in southern Oregon last week. It all started with one of the biggest protests you probably didn’t even notice. In a June 9 press release, the Bureau of Reclamation announced that it had restored the 140,000-acre-feet of water originally promised to farmers in the Klamath Basin at the beginning of the season: Today, the Bureau of Reclamation confirmed the 2020 water...

    The United Nations Human Rights Council this week will review reports of racism, police brutality and violence against protesters in the U.S. in an urgent meeting after weeks of anti-racism protests that have swept the country. The request to hold an “urgent debate” among the 47-member group, of which the U.S. is not a member, was initially requested by Burkina Faso on behalf of 54 African countries after the family of George Floyd urged the group to review systemic racism and police brutality in the U.S. Mr. Floyd died on May 25 after a white officer knelt on his neck...

    The UN has warned that the world is on the verge of the worst food crisis in at least 50 years as the recession following the COVID-19 pandemic may put basic nutrition beyond impoverished people's reach. The organization has urged governments to take prompt action to prevent further disaster as 49 million more may fall into extreme poverty due to the outbreak. Food systems are failing and the pandemic is mitigating the situation, said UN secretary-general, Antonio Guterres, on June 9, 2020. "Unless immediate action is taken, it is increasingly clear that there is an impending global food emergency that...
