UN Secretary General Speaks to the Press Before 75th UNGA Meeting

The member states of the United Nations plan to adopt a declaration next week marking the 75th anniversary of the United Nations and committing to a reinvigorated multilateralism, according to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres. They will also invite the Secretary General “to report on our common agenda for the future,” Mr. Guterres told reporters at a press conference in which reporters participated both in person and virtually. “This will be an important process of reflection and I will report back with analysis and recommendations.”

Secretary General presented a false choice between “global solidarity” through globalist institutions like the United Nations versus “go-it-alone nationalist approaches”

One wonders why the Secretary General is not already prepared to offer his concrete analysis and specific recommendations for keeping the UN relevant in the years ahead. It’s not as if he is new to the job. Secretary General Guterres is in his fourth year of a five-year term and presumably has already been thinking ahead to a possible second term. However, the Secretary General was short on specifics in his opening remarks to reporters. He fell back instead on his usual platitudes, calling for global solidarity to deal with climate change, the coronavirus, a global ceasefire, eradicating poverty and the like. Secretary General Guterres said nothing about trying to fix the UN’s own problems of trust caused by its lack of accountability for misdeeds by UN personnel and its lack of transparency.

“People are thinking big – about transforming the global economy, accelerating the transition to zero carbon, ensuring universal health coverage, moving towards a universal basic income and making decision-making more open and inclusive,” Secretary General Guterres said. “They are also expressing an intense yearning for global solidarity – and rejecting go-it-alone nationalist approaches and divisive populist appeals. Now is the time to respond to these aspirations and realize these aims. In this 75th anniversary year, we face our own 1945 moment.”

The Secretary General presented a false choice between “global solidarity” through globalist institutions like the United Nations versus “go-it-alone nationalist approaches.” There is a responsible third choice that is most consistent with the UN Charter – smart, targeted multilateralism to address manageable transnational problems without giving up each nation’s sovereignty in the process.

United Nations does not have the authority “to intervene in matters which are essentially within the domestic jurisdiction of any state”

The Charter of the United Nations, as designed by the victors of World War II who created the UN seventy-five years ago, does not compel the UN’s member states to forfeit their sovereignty to a global governance body. Quite the opposite. The United Nations was founded to bring sovereign nations together for the purpose of cooperating to solve common problems while taking collective action where warranted against threats to international peace and security. In fact, the United Nations Charter specifically recognizes the sovereign status of the member states. It stipulates that the United Nations does not have the authority “to intervene in matters which are essentially within the domestic jurisdiction of any state.”

Only the Security Council has enforcement powers under Chapter VII of the Charter to impose sanctions and authorize the use of collective military force to maintain or restore international peace and security, subject to the veto power of its five permanent members. Everything else about United Nations governance outside of paying assessed dues is voluntary.

As President Trump said in his remarks to the UN General Assembly last year, “The future does not belong to globalists. The future belongs to sovereign and independent nations who protect their citizens, respect their neighbors, and honor the differences that make each country special and unique.” At the same time, President Trump stressed that the United States “is ready to embrace friendship with all who genuinely seek peace and respect. America knows that while anyone can make war, only the most courageous can choose peace.”

While Secretary General Guterres speaks in abstract about a “collective push for peace,” President Trump has worked with other nations in a multilateral fashion to achieve real results in the pursuit of peace.

UN’s myopic obsession on the Palestinian cause

Most notably, on September 15th at the White House, peace agreements were signed between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and between Israel and Bahrain. Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain will establish embassies, exchange ambassadors, and embark on a cooperative relationship involving such matters as trade, healthcare, and security.

Inexplicably, Secretary General Guterres neglected to mention these historic agreements in his opening remarks. In response to a question about the agreements, Secretary General Guterres claimed they “managed one very important result, and that was the suspension of the annexation of occupied territory.”  Typical of the UN’s myopic obsession on the Palestinian cause, the Secretary General downplayed the importance of two Arab countries reaching peace accords with Israel for the first time since Israel and Jordan signed their Treaty of Peace 26 years ago. The only other peace agreement signed by Israel with an Arab country was the Camp David Accords with Egypt in 1979.

As commentators in the Arab world are increasingly recognizing, Middle East peace is not all about satisfying the Palestinian leadership’s maximalist demands. The commentators were disgusted with the Palestinian leaders’ reflexive denunciations of normalizing relations between Israel and the two Arab Gulf countries. They are beginning to see through the Palestinians’ lies and self-dealing at the expense of the Palestinian people and genuine peace.

A Saudi writer, for example, wrote the following, as transcribed by MEMRI:

The UN is continuing its decades-old role as the enabler of Palestinian rejectionists

“The situation of our Palestinian brothers is regrettable. For over 60 years, their politicians have cashed in on their cause, and persisted in not reaching an arrangement, in destroying the negotiations, and in opposing every peace initiative, whether proposed by the Israelis or by the other international elements. The Palestinian politician has inflicted this on his cause and his people in order to profit from leaving things as they are, since the way he has chosen for decades was the only way to guarantee that he would remain in the picture and [benefit from the] influx of funds, donations and aid flowing from all directions, particularly from the Arab and Islamic world, into his coffers and his European bank accounts. Today, the situation is different, because the peoples who once identified with the Palestinian cause are completely aware of this manipulation and the way it is done.”

A Saudi Member of Parliament wrote, as transcribed by MEMRI:

“The Palestinians must understand… that today’s Arabs and Muslims are different than the past [generations], for the young generation has gained awareness and can no longer be deceived or exploited. The Palestinians have kept their cause exclusively under their own control, traded in it, and missed opportunities one by one, until their rights evaporated.”

Sadly, the United Nations, under Mr. Guterres’ leadership, is legitimizing the Palestinian leaders’ deceptions and exploitation. The UN is continuing its decades-old role as the enabler of Palestinian rejectionists who still insist on a Palestinian state stretching from “the river to the sea.” This is not the way to move forward successfully with Mr. Guterres’ desired “collective push for peace.”

Is A Cover Up over Clinton’s 2000 Interference in Russia’s elections still Going On?


QUESTION: Marty; You said that not even Fox News will report the story that the US interfered in the 2000 Russian election. Do you have any idea why?

EK

ANSWER: No not really. Perhaps it would admit things that the US government does not want to admit that even under the Clinton Administration which let the bankers do whatever they wanted from exempting student loans from bankruptcy to repealing Glass Stegall which enabled the bankers to see the mortgaged back security time bombs. I do not know. The movie Forecaster has been banned in the USA. Netflix wanted it but then the last minute the board said no. They seem to have gotten a phone call. Amazon will stream it but only outside the USA. Why?

Here is Hillary here in 2020 still claiming the Russians interfered when that has been totally been unsupported and the entire Steele dossier was paid for by Hillary. She then erased all her emails. A Trump victory will mean the Democrats will still claim only because of Russia when it was the Clintons who allowed the bankers to blackmail Yeltsin, forced him to step down, but he turned to Putin. Look at Bill’s expression. He trashed her book and that became public. Hillary will never admit people did not trust her. In her mind, it was Putin BECAUSE she stood by while the bankers tried to take over all the resources of Russia – gold, diamonds, and oil.

Safra, head of Republic National Bank, was assassinated by Russians (see Vanity Fair). But they tried to cover that up blaming his nurse, who was then released simply saying he never received a fair trial. The guy the bankers were trying to install as president was Berezovsky, which fled to Britain but later hanged himself.

So I have no idea why Fox News will not report this issue, especially when the Democrats are already claiming Trump can’t win without Russian interference. I do not know. It seems there is a coverup still in play.

Melbourne Australia – the Example of the Worst Police States in a Pretend Free Society


The Melbourne police have turned into a ruthless anti-Human Rights group of thugs. They are enjoying the ability to simply beat up people arrest them for nonsense. They are setting people up, using checkpoints, and pulling over cars and dragging people from their cars. This is a real live example of how there is no democratic process and you have no rights; whenever the government decides in the name of protecting you, they get to abuse you to maintain their power.

This is why revolutions take place, and I have warned unless the police support the people, they are the face of government and they will all become targets. This is how revolutions have unfolded. There is no freedom left in Victoria, Australia. How will Andrews win an election in the future? The risk is that there will be no election, and under the pretense of civil unrest, elections will be suspended. Unfortunately, the next Victorian state election is scheduled to be held on November 26, 2022. If that does not take place, then the revolution becomes the only alternative. This is how NOT to run a government.

 

Generally, at the federal level, an election can be called as early as August 7, 2021, and as late as May 21, 2022. However, the House of Representatives can go as late as September 3, 2022. We should expect political turmoil in 2022. With respect to Victoria, it is highly debatable whether Andrews can make it to 2022 without blood in the streets.

Canada More Lockdowns?


There are rumors now running around that more lockdowns are coming in Canada. I cannot verify that this is correct, but this twitter that is going viral does put it correctly, this is now becoming the people v the establishment which seems to be controlled by the Oligarchs. We will see if Canada goes in this direction.

Influencing the Future


FT 1998 Martin Armstrong June 27, 1998 Rubble of the Rouble

QUESTION: Marty; My cousin in Britain who works in the government said the governments are acting insane because of your model. They timed the Covid-19 pandemic to coincide with your turning point January 18, 2020, and then the lockdowns are because your model has been forecasting the rise in civil unrest and then the collapse of the monetary system. He said there is not a government that does not follow your models after Margaret Thatcher and your forecast for the collapse of Russia in 1998.

Do you ever consider not publishing when you have that much influence?

anonymous

ANSWER: There are aspects and certain models I will not publish. I spent 7 years in contempt for refusing to turn over the source code to my models. The movie “The Forecaster” could NEVER have been made without insurance against slander and libel. The New York boys were after the model — the source code to be precise. They even put that in writing so I had to provide all the documentation for Llyods of London to insure the production of the film. If every allegation could not be proved, they would never have been able to make the film. The government was given the opportunity to be in the film and give their side. They refuse to ever cooperate with the producers. I was released ONLY because I got into the Supreme Court which ordered the government to explain how I could be held for 7 years on a statute that stated civil contempt maximum is 18 months – 28 USC 1826.

CNN Theft of IMF Money – Sep. 1, 1999

CNN even reported first that the money laundering involved stolen funds from the IMF loans. They quickly buried that truth to hide it from the public. The movie has been played around the world, but it was banned in America. Why? Only because it hit home. Curious how not even Fox News will report what took place in 2000. The USA, under the Clintons, interfered with the Russian elections of 2000 and that is how Putin came to power.

Why do you think everyone tried to avoid our forecasts and pretend Socrates does not even exist? They would not dare to report that we have created the only fully-functioning Artificial Intelligence computer in the world. They do not like what it forecasts because it exposes the truth.

Perhaps you are correct and everything they are trying to do is because of our model. It still changes nothing. At best, it merely will increase volatility. They are looking to cancel the currencies and move to digital currencies because the monetary system is collapsing. The ECB lowered rates to negative in 2014, and 6 years later, their experiment has failed. They are now trapped and cannot raise rates. There is no place to hide.

Government officials reach out all the time. Even Nigel Farage had the courage to speak at our World Economic Conference in Rome, stating bluntly because we were the “alternative to Davos,” which is now even more apparent as we are head-to-head against Klaus Schwab and his World Economic Forum in league with Gates.

This collapse would have taken place without me. I do not believe Gates follows our model. Perhaps others convinced him to use January 18, 2020, for his timing. However, if he really respected Socrates, he would see his own demise.

So your question is interesting. I do not believe I have that sort of influence or they would listen and NOT try to defeat the model. I have no desire to go through all of this craziness. As I have said, I wish Star Trek was real. I would be screaming right now — “Scotty! Beam me UP!”

 

Separatists Want to Break Away from Scotland


A separatist movement has begun within Scotland. Now, the Orkney islands are following Shetland in demanding independence from Scotland itself. This is part of a widening global trend; as the government begins to crumble internally, separatist movements will begin. We will see this also appear in the United States after the elections. Some people want to separate from the USA, taking California, Oregon, and Washington if Trump wins. We should support that if they take Bill Gates with them, and perhaps then we can revoke any passport to allow travel to the USA.

Trump Administration Announces “Withhold Release Orders” Targeting China’s Use of Forced Labor in Xinjiang Region…


Those who have followed the Trump administration’s decoupling strategy will note the potential conflict from within this approach is a ‘nothing to lose’ proposition from Donald Trump’s perspective.

The Trump administration announced today the Department of Homeland Security, via U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, are about to start blocking the import of products from five specific entities in western China’s Xinjiang region.  The objective is to block products that come from forced Uighur labor in Xinjiang, China.

The authority comes from U.S. “Withhold Release Orders” (WRO’s) that allows U.S. Customs and Border Protection to detain shipments based on suspicion of forced-labor involvement under long-standing U.S. laws to combat human trafficking, child labor and other human rights abuses.  Ken Cuccinelli explains to Lou Dobbs.

.

At first blush this might seem detrimental to the objectives of the U.S-China Phase-One trade deal. However, if you have followed the decoupling process closely; including the warnings given by Trump to U.S. multinationals; you will note there is no specific downside to this confrontation.

Wall Street, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the multinationals represented by K-Street lobbyists in DC will obviously go bananas; however, at this point in the 2020 election -and I swear this is incredibly astute and strategic timing- there’s no political value in attacking President Trump over a policy against forced labor.

Think about it…. Are the democrats or their allies on Wall Street really going to start demanding that President Trump’s global trade policy include accepting forced labor, slavery and child exploitation?  A democrat campaign message to “make slavery great again”? Of course not…. ergo, strategic brilliance. A brilliance that actually circles directly back to the longer-term goal of decoupling from Beijing.

wASHINGTON – DHS said Xinjiang entities whose products will be blocked from entering the United States include all products made with labor from the Lop County No. 4 Vocational Skills Education and Training Center; hair products from the Lop County Hair Product Industrial Park; apparel produced by Yili Zhouwan Garment Manufacturing and Baodung LYSZD Trade and Business Co.; cotton produced and processed by Xinjiang Junggar Cotton and Linen Co. Ltd; and computer parts made by Hefei Bitland Information Technology Co. Ltd.

President Donald Trump’s administration is ratcheting up pressure on China over its treatment of Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang, where the United Nations cites credible reports that about 1 million Muslims held in camps have been put to work.

China denies mistreatment of the Uighurs and says the camps are vocational training centers needed to fight extremism.
