"Exclusive: After a Year of Setbacks, U.N. Looks to Take Charge of World's Agenda"
After a year of humiliating setbacks, United Nations Secretary General Ban ki-Moon and about 60 of his top lieutenants — the top brass of the entire U.N. system — spent their Labor Day weekend at a remote Austrian Alpine retreat, discussing ways to put their sprawling organization in charge of the world’s agenda.
First note: "...to put their sprawling organization in charge of the world's agenda". OK, that got my attention.
Nonetheless, position papers for the meeting obtained by Fox News indicate that the topics included:
-- how to restore “climate change” as a top global priority after the fiasco of last year’s Copenhagen summit;
-- how to continue to try to make global redistribution of wealth the real basis of that climate agenda, and widen the discussion further to encompass the idea of “global public goods”;
-- how to keep growing U.N. peacekeeping efforts into missions involved in the police, courts, legal systems and other aspects of strife-torn countries;
-- how to capitalize on the global tide of migrants from poor nations to rich ones, to encompass a new “international migration governance framework”;
-- how to make “clever” use of new technologies to deepen direct ties with what the U.N. calls “civil society,” meaning novel ways to bypass its member nation states and deal directly with constituencies that support U.N. agendas.
Climate change? Are they serious? Have they not read all of the papers and articles discrediting the entire global warming agenda? Do they believe the general public is completely illiterate?
Global redistribution of wealth? Hows that been working so far?
Peacekeeping? Hows THAT been working so far, for the UN?
Wait, it actually gets better:
As one underlying theme of the sessions, the top U.N. bosses seemed to be grappling often with how to cope with the pesky issue of national sovereignty, which — according to the position papers, anyway — continued to thwart many of their most ambitious schemes, especially when it comes to many different kinds of “global governance.”
Now the discussions turns to how "national sovereignty" needs to be dismantled as it distracts from the idea of global governance. I wish I was making this up:
National sovereignty — meaning the refusal of major powers like India, China and the United States to go along with sweeping global agendas — was specifically indicted for the failure of the much ballyhooed Copenhagen summit on climate change. “National sovereignty remains supreme,” as one position paper noted.
Nonetheless, the U.N. leaders intend to keep trying to change that, especially when it comes to the climate agenda.
According to the paper prepared by Secretary General Ban’s own climate change team, however, the newly rebranded challenge still depends on the same economic remedy proposed for Copenhagen: a drastic redistribution of global wealth, “nothing less than a fundamental transformation of the global economy.”
And to do that, the paper suggests, equally dramatic shifts in political power may be needed. “Is the global governance structure, still dominated by national sovereignty, capable of responding with the coherence and speed needed?” it asks. “Or do we need to push the ‘reset’ button and rethink global governance to meet the 50-50-50 Challenge?”
Thats all bad enough, but the remaining segments are downright scary:
The U.N. bosses also need to make sure that the institution sits at top tables where the world’s financial decisions are made. It is “urgent to secure U.N. participation” at regular meetings of the G-20 finance ministers and their deputies,” according to one of the papers, a group that the U.N. Secretariat, based in New York City and Geneva, does not interact with very much.
That observation ties into another Alpbach theme: pushing global financial regulation even further.
Along with planting a new flag in the field of international financial regulation, the U.N. chiefs also contemplated the further growth of the U.N. as the world’s policeman. As another paper notes, U.N. peacekeeping operations “will soon have almost 17,000 United Nations police officers serving on four continents” — little more than two years after establishing what one papers calls the institutions “Standing Police Capacity.”
The peacekeepers are now also building a “standing justice and corrections element” to go with the semi-permanent police force — a permanent strike force to establish courts and prisons in nations where peacekeepers are stationed.
How successful Ban and his chieftains will be at pushing that agenda may soon be seen, as the secretary general hosts the lead-off event of the fall diplomatic season, a two-day summit starting September 20 on the so-called Millennium Development Goals.
What is at stake, the papers make clear, is not only the alleged betterment of the world, but the U.N.’s soaring ambitions for itself — no matter what roadblocks national sovereignty may throw in its way.
I can recall several years ago, when talking to various groups about biblical prophecy - the idea of global governance would come up and I would rather sheepishly discuss the fact that someday in the future we would see a push towards a global government, which would serve as "road paving" towards the Tribulation when the antichrist would accomplish a form of world government via his control of the economy. It was hard to have these discussions, as it seemed so conspiratorial and unlikely.
These days, with the array of information coming in almost daily, the push towards a world economy and a world government barely raises eyebrows. My, how things have changed in just a few short years.
It is hard to know if the antichrist will ultimately use the U.N. as one of his platforms. Certainly, it is easy to see the UN as vigorously supporting a figure such as the antichrist, but the extent of UN involvement is anyone's guess.
The key factor, is the fact that so many different groups and organizations, authors, politicians, etc., continue their push for various forms of global governance, including financial governance, "peace-keeping" in various places in the world, criminal courts to try and convict international "criminals", global taxes for the purpose of mythical global warming, and on and on it goes.
Ultimately this effort aids and assists in the process of conditioning the population - conditioning the population to gradually, over time, become familiar enough with the concept so when it does come to fruition, it will be easily accepted.
It's all part of the process of paving the road into the Tribulation and the reign of the antichrist. The progress made in this effort over the last few years has been astonishingly rapid and it shows no signs of slowing down.
The lockstep march towards the Tribulation continues.
