Posted on 06/10/2009 8:18:09 AM PDT by FromLori
United Nations General Assembly President Miguel D'Escoto Brockmann intends to leave his mark on the United Nations and the global economic-political picture before his one-year term ends in September. D'Escoto, a longtime top official in the communist Sandinista government of Nicaragua, has chosen as his primary vehicle for making this mark the UN Conference on the World's Financial and Economic Crisis to be held June 24-26 at the UN headquarters in New York.
The D'Escoto-UN plan, which has received scant media coverage, is nothing short of s full-blown call for world government administered through the UN. The Draft Outcome Document issued by D'Escoto on May 8, 2009 on behalf of the "G-192" (the representatives of the 192 Member States of the UN), decries the evils of "a profit centered economy" and the current "prevailing socio-economic system" and declares: "The anti-values of greed, individualism, and exclusion should be replaced by solidarity, common good and inclusion."
How do D'Escoto and his UN comrades propose to accomplish this? The 19-page document lays out a Sandinista-style Marxist-Leninist program for the entire planet that involves global government, with a huge new global bureaucracy exercising vast powers over all human activity.
Point 78 of the document's 80-point program proclaims:
New Structures are also necessary to achieve recovery and restructure the prevailing socio-economic model. They should be created by the United Nations General Assembly who should also approve their budgets and supervised and coordinated by ECOSOC with staff support of UNDESA and United Nations Regional Economic and Social Commissions.
Point 79 then lists the proposed new UN institutions that would rule all life on our planet:
Global Stimulus Fund Global Public Goods Authority (Sea, Space, Cyberspace) Global Tax Authority Global Financial Products Safety Commission Global Financial Regulatory Authority Global Competition Authority Global Council of Financial and Economic Advisors Global Economic Coordination Council World Monetary Board (Contingent SDR emissions)
Finally, point number 80 of the Draft Outcome Document tells us that "it is not possible to continue globalizing human relations without global regulation and institutions." According to the UN document, "Our growing global problem set will also eventually require global financial mechanisms to solve them. There are serious constraints to achieving this, but until we do, globalization without global institutions will continue to lead the world into chaos. It is up to the G-192, the General Assembly of the United Nations to assure that the Global Stimulus for Restructuring and Survival generates new global institutions as part of the same process that overcomes the crisis and restructures our socio-economic model."
The plan put forward by D'Escoto for exploiting the current economic crisis to build an all-powerful world government is the product of the usual coalition of UN forces: hardcore communists, "moderate" socialists, and militant environmentalists all funded by various national and regional governments, UN agencies, tax exempt foundations, and corporate one-world elitists. As a top Sandinista official, "Father" Miguel D'Escoto fits clearly into the communist category. He was suspended from his priestly functions by the Vatican in 1982, along with fellow Sandinista priests Ernesto and Fernando Cardenal, Alvaro Arguello, and Edgar Parrales. Pope John Paul II severely chastised these Liberation Theology "Padres" when he visited Managua in 1983. Nevertheless, in violation of Canon Law and papal orders, they defiantly remained in the Soviet- and Cuban-backed Sandinista regime that brutally oppressed the Nicarguan people and persecuted faithful Catholics, laity and clergy alike, as well as Protestants and Jews.
As Foreign Minister under Sandinista chief Daniel Ortega, D'Escoto was a member of the ruling junta that imposed a rigid Soviet-style political-economic system on Nicaragua, while exporting terrorism and revolution to the rest of Latin America. Imprisonment, torture, murder, and expropriation became the order of the day as the Sandinista secret police implemented the methods they had learned from the Soviet KGB and Cuban DGI. Daniel Ortega returned as president in 2007. Thanks to a divided opposition, a phony public act of contrition by Ortega, and Sandinista voter intimidation and fraud, Ortega was able to take the presidency with only 38 percent of the vote. Due to a previously enacted "reform" supported by Ortega and the Sandinistas a first-round plurality of only 35 percent enables the victor to avoid a run-off election. However, Ortega's election campaign claims about having converted to Christianity and his (outwardly) penitent reconciliation with Cardinal Obando y Bravo (whom he had previously persecuted), turned out to be total ruses. Since taking office he has reinstituted the repression, intimidation, torture, and corruption of the earlier Sandinista regime.
One of "El Comandante" Ortega's most recent accomplishments is the repeal of the 1962 decision to revoke communist Cuba's membership in the Organization of American States (OAS). The OAS had ejected Castro's dictatorship because its "adherence ... to Marxism-Leninism is incompatible with the inter-American system." Ortega can be seen here triumphantly giving the communist clenched-fist salute at the OAS summit in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, on June 3, immediately after the vote to reinstate Havana's unapologetic Marxist-Leninist regime.
Ortega has not changed from his earlier Sandinista days; he's the same old Marxist-Leninist. And, as before, "Padre D'Escoto" (as he prefers to be called) is there to help him as an official adviser. Lest there be any doubt as to D'Escoto's political tilt, he even mentions in his official UN profile (with apparent pride) that he was the recipient of "the International Lenin Peace Prize (1985/86) awarded by the Soviet Union." For those unfamiliar with this "distinguished" award, it was originally instituted as the "Stalin Peace Prize," but after Stalin's death the Kremlin decided to moderate the Soviet image by denouncing the horrendous crimes of Stalin. The name of the award was then changed to honor communist leader V. I. Lenin instead.
As General Assembly president, Padre D'Escoto is able to project the Sandinista vision on a global scale. He is only able to do so, however, because of the indispensable help of a global brain trust that begins with his trusty Sandinista assistant, Paul Oquist.
The Geneva-based human rights group UN Watch reports that at a May 12 meeting in Geneva, Switzerland, with NGO representatives to promote the June economic crisis conference, D'Escoto expanded on his recurring diatribes against free market "greed" as the source of all the world's woes. Said UN Watch:
D'Escoto Brockmann was joined by his senior advisor, former Nicaraguan Minister Paul Oquist. Evidently the brains behind the initiative, Oquist explained that its goal is to make a new "Bretton Woods" agreement to address the entire financial system and architecture and promote a global stimulus.
It was Oquist, reports UN Watch, who presented D'Escoto's "solution" for the world's economic ills, a plan "requiring 5% of world GDP and involving various international taxes, including on pollution, cyberspace, the seas, and financial transactions."
The New York Times, in a May 24 bouquet to D'Escoto and his upcoming UN conference, did not bother to remind its readers of the former Sandinista foreign minister's blood-drenched record, but it did make this interesting (though not surprising) comment about Oquist's choice of seating for the Times' interview:
Sitting beneath portraits of Fidel Castro of Cuba, President Hugo Chávez of Venezuela and President Daniel Ortega of Nicaragua, among others, Mr. Oquist also said that the meltdown of 2008 proved that no state or states had a monopoly on financial wisdom.
Casting far larger shadows than Oquist, however, are the big guns of D'Escoto's Commission of Experts on Reforms of the International Monetary and Financial System. The chairman of the Commission is Joseph Stiglitz, the Nobel Laureate, former economist for the Clinton administration and the World Bank (and probably the most quoted economic guru of our day). Besides chairing the UN coterie that plans to restructure the world, Stiglitz is now a professor at Columbia University. But he has another important feather in his cap that his admirers in the media (and they are legion) seem to be taking special pains to ignore and conceal. Professor Stiglitz is also chairman of the Commission on Global Financial Issues sponsored by the Socialist International (SI), the worldwide congregation of socialist parties (including many that are communist - like the Sandinista FSLN - "ex-communist," and crypto-communist. The longest-serving president of the SI was the late German Chancellor Willy Brandt, who, after his death in 1992, was exposed as having been a Soviet KGB agent since before World War II. (Like Dr. Stiglitz, Brandt was also a Nobel Laureate.)
Now, since the Socialist International is such an important global player (even though it is little known in the United States), counting many ruling parties and heads of state as members, it would seem to be relevant to include Dr. Stiglitz's chairmanship of the SI Commission in his vita, especially since the SI Commission and the UN Commission are pushing virtually identical programs for socialist world government, under the guise of dealing with the current economic crisis. But then someone might notice that the SI has been pushing that same program for decades.
As The New American has repeatedly reported over the years, the Congress of the Socialist International in 1962 stated: "The ultimate objective of the parties of the Socialist International is nothing less than world government." That has never changed, as the agenda of the current Stiglitz-led SI Commission bears out. But, since the "socialist" label, even in the era of Obama socialism, still carries a stigma in America, the UN's globalist-oriented friends in the media have opted to sanitize this information out of existence. And of course they won't point out that the Socialist International call for world government merely mirrors the much earlier official "Program of the Communist International" adopted by the Soviet Union in 1928, calling for "a World Union of Soviet Socialist Republics uniting the whole of mankind under the hegemony of the international proletariat organized as a state."
The current UN-D'Escoto-Stiglitz-SI plan for world government proposes something closely akin to that 81-year-old Soviet program. However, considering the scope of the UN's proposed global restructuring scheme, there has been very little mention of it by the Obama administration, members of Congress, or the so-called mainstream media. To the extent that it has been mentioned, the general line seems to be: "Oh, don't worry about that; the G8-G20 folks won't go along with anything that radical." But as we've previously detailed in the articles below, the global program kicked off by the recent G20 London Summit is cause enough for serious alarm and should be stirring forceful opposition. In fact, it may well be that the primary purpose served by Padre D'Escoto and the Stiglitz-chaired Commission is to make the G20 plan for world government appear conservative (and therefore acceptable, even welcome) by comparison.
This is where all that is happening is headed. First, all that was the US has to be destroyed and dismantled. Including senior citizens....and they found just the guy to do it.
Global rule. Of course, the individual rulers might have just a teensy bit more in the way of rights than we who make up the proletariat. Just a guess, you understand. I suggest you load up on arms and ammunition TODAY! We’re gonna need it.
Good find...thank you!
0bama will be among the first to sign up. China will be exempt, or buy all the votes they want through their economic satraps in the 3rd world.
The New American-
“In addition to political topics, The New American also publishes articles about economics (from a free-enterprise perspective of course!), culture, and history. It is published by American Opinion Publishing, a wholly owned subsidiary of The John Birch Society.”
I have never been a member of the John Birch Society, but knew many when I was involved in politics in NM. They were very predictable Republicans. Their heart was always in the right place, but at times I thought their head was elsewhere. They get a bad rap in the media, but in most cases it is undeserved.
The John Birch Society has warned of all of this since the late 50s.
Their prediction record is quite solid. The book “The Shadows of Power” is absolutely unassailable, especially considering when most of it was written. Only the Bible does better.
I have a problem with that statement.
I am not critical of the John Birch Society they are always patriotic and are students of history, but some of the "writers" loose it.
When I was Republican County Chairman in a mining district in NM, there were three groups I could always count on. The John Birch Society, the local Mormon Community (I am Baptist), and the Rock Rib Republican Ranchers.
These people were all my friends, but I did not always share some of their views. But we fought the battle together, in a County where the Dem registration was 2 Dems per 1 Republican.
Blue helmets make easy targets. It is for just such an eventuality (takeover by foreign tyrants, whether or not aided by domestic ones) that the 2nd Amendment was proposed and ratified.
You can have all the problems that you want, but I’ve yet to hear any Birch detractor articulate a single point on which the Birch writings were incorrect.
The best they ever do is name an organization that branched out from the org that was named by the Birchers. Pathetic whinning.
Don’t leave out George Miller, and Jimmy Carter!
“But we fought the battle together”
We are friends and allies, not enemies or detractors.
I only stated the source for clarity.
I do that often.
Yes, I recognize the picture and John F—n— Kerry.
My opinion: I’ve been hearing this one world gov’t stuff for the last 30 years; makes for interesting speculation, but the UN bunch reminds me of a bunch of school girls whispering among themselves in the locker room; nothing ever comes of it; they only speak to themselves and then in isolation. The “crack” in the wall would be LOST, (law of seas treaty), but even there is an enforcement mechanism lacking.
I somehow fail to see this stuff ever quite coming together.
The looks of adoration on the faces of Kerry, Harkin and his wife really tells the tale, doesn’t it. The hatred they spewed at Regan back then told another.
I could tell you war stories about that era. Prior to Eugene Hassenfus being downed in Nicaragua.
I was battling the Sandinista’s surrogates in the mining district in Western NM. Those were interesting times.
I used to view the Birchers as kooks, but either I’ve become crazy or they were right all along. I’m guessing it’s the latter.
That's because they used to teach that as part of the pledge of alliegence in school.
