Obama Ambassador to UN Quotes COMMUNIST to Push New Socialist UN Sustainable Development Goals
Gateway Pundit ^ | 09/25/2015 | Jim Hoft & Patch Adams

Posted on 09/25/2015 10:48:43 PM PDT by Rusty0604

It’s official. On Friday morning the United States, and 192 other nations, unanimously adopted the new United Nations Sustainable Development goals. These “goals“, designed to eradicate world poverty and fight Climate Change, include the Socialist ideals of universal healthcare, universal education, universal employment, and wealth redistribution, all of which must in place by 2030.

On Thursday night, the eve of the U.N. Summit, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., Samantha Powers (pictured above), gave a speech in support of the new U.N. Sustainable Development goals where she quoted Communist influenced economist, Amartya Sen:

“ “I want to open my remarks with a quote from the master, “Development requires the removal of major sources of unfreedom: poverty as well as tyranny, poor economic opportunities as well as systematic social deprivation, neglect of public facilities as well as intolerance or over-activity of repressive states.” This goes to the essence of Goal 16 in the SDGs, which as you know world leaders will adopt within the next few hours. But it was written nearly two decades ago – by Amartya. And, I would only say, I wish the world had come around to his vision a little bit sooner – we could have probably spared a lot of people a lot of heartache.”

During an interview in 2005, Amartya Sen admitted that while growing up as a student in Calcutta, India the strongest influence on “left-wing” students such as himself was the Communist Party movement in China:

Not the first:

There was also an administration official who spoke at a high school graduation and said the “Little Red Book” was a favorite of hers.

She’s another Commie within POS Obama’s inner circle.

Cass Sunstein, as you know, is her husband and a very bad man.

Eradicate poverty is a good thing, but one must eradicate evil marxist leaders who steal the funds given to the poor in their countries. The US is making the government leaders rich, not helping the poor.

Was it Beck or Levin who said Sunstein was the most dangerous man in America? - except Obama of course. Oh, and isn't it Power whose mantra is 'Responsibility to Protect'? Protect which group Samantha? All the fellow travelers?

Bears repeating from the article:

"Critics of Amartya Sen are quick to point out how the Communist experiences of his youth helped him in shaping his Kerala economic model which “is simply an expression of the romanticized notion that Communist rule creates a utopia” and that Sen doesn’t stand for Freedom, but for wealth redistribution labeled as “economic equality“."

"Considering President Obama’s own childhood experiences with radical Communists it’s not surprising that he would agree to adopt the new Socialist U.N. Sustainable Development goals, or that his ambassador to the U.N. would quote a Communist in a effort to show support for such a move."

"What is surprising is the fact that many Americans still refuse to recognize the Marxist path the United States is now set upon, and how close to losing what’s left of their liberty, and the liberty of future generations, they really are…"

Income redistribution - from Obama, Power, Sunstein and the Pope. We've had enough of this crap!

The essence of communism:

I don’t think it is possible to eradicate poverty if people have freedom to make their own choices. If you took all the wealth in the world and decided it evenly, within no time there would again be rich and poor.

I think it was Beck who said that Sunstein was the most dangerous man in America. He’s a Marxist with a very mean totalitarian mindset, and is one of Obama’s unofficial advisors, if not mentors.

His wife is a fool, plain and simple, like her concepts.
If reality bit her in the ass, she’d simply think it was a mosquito.

Thanks, Art. Good info to know and share. Great sign.

A few years ago, Powers also mentioned attacking Israel if it becomes necessary.

From the Intellectual Conservative:

“Agenda 21 soon to become ”the 2030 Agenda”

By John C. Velisek USN Ret, on August 22nd, 2015

In 1992 “Agenda 21” was made public by the United Nations at a UN Conference on Environment and Development held in Rio De Janeiro and signed by 178 countries. It had been modified many times since then. “Agenda 21” is transforming into a new set of laws being pushed through the United Nations. More oppressive and couched in language that hides it true meaning, it is based on the UN’s Sustainability Goals as part of a sustainable development goals that will complete the submission of sovereign countries to the UN mandates.

The new laws called “Agenda 2030” is being finalized at the Sustainable Development Summit” to be held in New York City from September 25th through the 27th. Where Agenda 21 focused primarily on the environment, the 2030 Agenda is the foundation for governing the entire planet. It not only encompasses climate change, but the areas of economics, health, energy, education, agriculture, gender equality and social justice. It is being hailed by the UN as a new universal Agenda for all of humanity.

Agenda 2030 is a plan of action for the people, the planet, and prosperity It will require the collaboration of all countries acting in partnership to take bold and trans formative steps needed to place the world on a more sustainable path. In essence, this is an agenda for transforming global society.

These are some interesting concepts that must be questioned. I admit many of them sound quite good, I would even go so far as to say admirable. But upon closer inspection, these 17 goals and the 169 targets that are a part of them appear to be nothing more than globalism at its worst. It will give the United Nations and those elite who have been working for a one world government for many years the opportunity to micromanage the lives of every man, woman, and child on the planet. These are the same elites who tell us that liberty and freedom are “Dangerous” and we can’t have everyone going around the planet just doing what they want.

Just a few thoughts on the 17 goals that immediately come to mind.

1. End poverty in all its forms everywhere.
Admirable, but not possible. The only way that would even approach feasibility would be to force those countries with a high level of satisfaction in the lifestyle they have worked for to be taxed in one form or another to give money to those who still have poverty. This money will wind up just like the monies that are being sent to UN NGO’s, wasted and used to line the pockets of the governments and those in charge of running the programs.

2. End hunger, achieve food security and promote sustainable agriculture
This would mean that farmers would be told where to farm, how to farm, and who to sell their products. American farmers may be required to sell the products they sell to a country of faction that can not pay, or not pay enough to create a profit. Farms may go bankrupt, creating even more of a food shortage.

3. Ensure healthy lives and promote well being for all.
Perhaps a one world healthcare system. Does anyone actually believe that the healthcare we have enjoyed because of the markets here in America before Obama destroyed them with Obamacare will ever return as the system that it was. What will be the wait time when we need to get approval through a bureaucracy set up by the United Nations?

4. Ensure equitable and inclusive education for all.
Admirable idea, but what about the Islamic World. What will the UN do about the concept of women being second class citizens in the Islamic World, and not eligible for school. I fail to see how this would be resolved without military intervention, and I doubt the people of the US would allow the country to be pulled into another war.

5. Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.
Another good idea, but for the same reasons as #4 above, not attainable.

6. Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.

This would take a massive influx of monies from the developed nations to make happen. It would not reach its objectives, and in fact would force the developed countries into third world status rather than improve the non developed countries.

7. Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable energy for all.

Think Obamas clean energy fiasco on a global level.

8. Promote sustained, inclusive, and sustainable economic growth full and productive employment and decent work for all.

This sounds straight out of the socialist handbook. There has never been full employment in any developed country. And who will determine who works at each job.

9. Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization.

If that innovation involves in pushing people to live in “rabbit warren” mega cities and allowing the rest of the land to return to nature, that will never happen, not in America. The government of this country, much less the United Nations, has no authority to tell us what to do with our private property. This would be the start of a global civil war within the developed countries of the world.

10. Reduce inequality within and among countries
What possibly makes the United Nations believe that they would be given the right to dictate to the US or England, or Canada, or any other country what they fell would be equal. Would this allow the UN to set reparations, or to force the citizens of the country to live where the UN feels is equal?

11. Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.

Once again, the megacities that the globalists envision for the populations of the world, they feel they know better where we should live, and force people into specific areas so that the rest of the land would return to nature.

12. Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns.
The UN is using it “wisdom” to control consumption, which would include oil, food, and anything else they feel is not sustainable. I do not think the American people are ready to abide by rules on what they can eat drink, or virtually anything they do to the reach of globalists.

13. Take urgent action to combat climate change
This is a subject that has proven to be a false flag for the globalists to manage every aspect of our lives.Most people of any intelligence know it is a lie, but remain silent to not incur the wrath of the scientists and lobbyists making all the money from the government to push this agenda.

14. Conserve the oceans sea and marine resources for sustainable development.

This is nothing more but an act to assure that all mineral resources and the use of the oceans will be under the command of the United Nations, giving them the ability to buy and sell the resources and line the pockets of the globalists. They would be stealing the resources from those countries least able to afford it, the very same people they purport to want to help.

15. Protect, restore, and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, manage forests, halt and reverse land degradation, and halt biodiversity loss.
Once again, the UN wants the ability to tell us how to live, what we can and can not do with our property at least until it is taken for “Biodiversity loss” and push the citizens into megacities.

16. Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide justice for all and accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.

It concerns me, and should concern you that the UN wants to institute its form of government at all levels. They have already started with the International Criminal Court, an ineffective and anit-semitic organization.

If you read this they way it is written, it would mean the UN would have the ability to rewrite laws and and interfere with all judicial and regulatory institutions all the way down to the local level.

17. Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development.

The globalists expect the population of the world to wait for them to make the rules and meekly comply.

“Sustainability Development” is being used as a false flag for the implementation of a global force that will fundamentally transform all laws, cultures, entertainment, and even our beliefs in religion and families. and society in general. These are the globalists who fell they know what is best for us, and we must be force to comply with their ideas of what a perfect government is.

John Velisek USN (Ret.)

Global corporate state slavery. Outstanding UN goals, and well achievable by 2030. 15 years to fully functioning global state slavery, is this possible?

If Barack Obama gave a DemocRats’s a$$ about sustainability, he would not be pushing actively for Iran to use nuclear power.

I thank God that I won’t be around in 2030...and better yet won’t leave behind any children to live in “that world” since my only child will have passed away by then too.

Who would have ever believed that the book Gulliver’s travels would have come true and reflected our current governmental status.

It’s hard to imagine that something as simple as how to open an egg (at the end or in the middle) would cause such strife. The “egg” is now climate change and a host of things that are natural and cannot be changed.

However, I am very happy that I have lived my life through the Norman Rockwell years and have actually participated in the REAL AMERICAN freedoms and liberties we once had.

For those of the newer generation: Enjoy the brave new world you have created for you will experience “the frog in the boiling pot” syndrome and never know it’s upon you before you finally realize you have destroyed the only free country on earth.

Back in 1992 us old “Freepers” hotly discussed Agenda 21. Many thought it was really nothing to be concerned about but some of us took extreme exception to it and were chastised by the more liberal members.

After a few years, discussions of Agenda 21 became rare and now it suddenly seems like a surprise to many...even though we warned about it back then.

If those old FR articles could be pulled back up it would be very interesting to see the comparison of what was warned about back then to what is actually happening today.
