Two news items on the ironically named, ‘United Nations’

1. This is wonderfully consistent with other groups they have on the UN Human Rights panel like Iran and Saudi Arabia

2. And in order for them to continue doing such a wonderful job as they do now, they want all nations to be tithed to them at least to the tune of 10%.

Measures to cope with coronavirus impacts

•    Global actions must include a stimulus package reaching double-digit percentage points of the world’s GDP, with explicit actions to boost the economies of developing countries.•    Regional mobilization must examine impacts, monetary coordination, fiscal and social measures, while engaging with private financial sector to support businesses and addressing structural challenges.

•    National solidarity needs to prioritize social cohesion and provide fiscal stimulus for the most vulnerable along with support to small- and medium-sized enterprises, decent work and education.


And for anyone who has forgotten, or has not yet seen this, here is the Secretary General of the UN explaining how its critical that all people of the world lose any freedom of speech that contradicts the Marxist narrative:

There is a video of this same Marxist explaining how the UN has to replace self governance for our own sake of course. But it’s long. Perhaps a day must be taken to dissect it and upload it with the proper references.

The whole video is below. It is just under 16 minutes.

 

A quick reminder of how and why the UN acts

Saudi Arabia covets the presidency of the Council for Human Rights

An original translation by Oz-Rita with much thanks!

From TDG.Ch

Embarrassment among diplomats, fear and anger among NGOs. The Saudis want to chair the Council for Human Rights.

It all began with a rumor that has spread and reached the corridors of the Palais des Nations. Saudi Arabia covets the presidency of the Council for Human Rights impossible — unimaginable. However, this rumor is no longer a rumor. Faisal bin Hassan Trad, the Permanent Representative of Saudi Arabia to the United Nations, in Geneva since January 2014, is indeed campaigning in the Asian group to be its candidate for the renewal, which will take place by the end of the year.

Currently, the Council is chaired by the German Joachim Ruecker, whose qualities and commitment are unanimously lauded. Before him, it was an African, the Gabonese Nganella Baudelaire, who was not well-remembered among the NGOs, who were frustrated by his year as president.

The rotation rule requires that the next president of the Council of Human Rights come from the Asian group comprised of thirteen countries (Saudi Arabia, Bangladesh, China, UAE, India, Indonesia, Japan, Kazakhstan, Maldives, Pakistan, Republic of Korea, Qatar and Vietnam). Faisal bin Hassan Trad has a very good chance, and the battle promises to be close. The Europeans will all try to dissuade members of the Asia Group from this choice, considered in advance as disastrous for the IMAGE of the Council for Human Rights. [emphasis added]

Arm-twisting by the Saudis

Saudi Arabia is twisting the arms of these other countries to be designated. If they succeed, it will be a disaster for the Council of Human Rights. “This could send us back to the worst times of the former commission who had sunk into disrepute,” says a Western diplomat on condition of anonymity.

Prince Zeid Ra’ad Zeid Al Hussein was officially appointed by the 193-Nation UN General Assembly to become the next United Nations human rights chief in Geneva.

 

“Prince Zeid’s work on sexual violence and his leadership on the international criminal court give a good foundation for this new role,” said Peggy Hicks [1], global advocacy director at Human Rights Watch.

Hicks continued: “As states in his region silence civil society and crush peaceful protests, the real test for Prince Zeid will be his willingness to stand up to abusive governments and speak out for those facing injustice and human rights violations worldwide.”

In his speech to the United Nations Al-Hussein said:

“I highly appreciate the confidence you are putting in me through nominating me to this position. Specially that I am going to be the first High Commissioner from the Asian Continent and from the Muslim and Arab Worlds. Needless to say, that this reflects the commitment of the international community towards this important dossier and this commitment to push it forward in this continent, as well as in other regions of the world.”

I suggest: If he started at his home country Jordan, Al Hussein would be busy for the next couple of years, since Jordan criminalizes speech that is critical of the king, government officials and institutions, Islam, as well as speech deemed defamatory to other persons.

Marriages between Muslim women and non-Muslims are not recognized. A non-Muslim mother forfeits her custodial rights after the child reaches seven years old.

Grove City, PA –-(Ammoland.com)- The American armed forces are in a death spiral.
