It’s not enough that our own government officials steal taxpayer money. We have to give it to corrupt officials in the UN.
The UN is the global organization Barack Obama and Democrats have chosen to lead the world. Laden with US taxpayer llars, massive redistribution will be funneled through the UN on issues such as climate change, immigration, refugees, education, economic systems, and so on. The UN is a rogues gallery of Communists, Socialists, Islamo-Fascists, and other corrupt statists. Even the so-called EU democracies support the one world government with the UN in charge.
Money we give to the UN often ends up being laundered through and given to corrupt government officials not for the purposes we intended. The 2030 sustainability agenda will be no different.
The UN is currently enveloped in yet another corruption scandal that they are trying very hard to sweep under the carpet.
Imagine that, a one world organization is corrupt!
Bribery and tax fraud charges were filed last week against former UN General Assembly President John Ashe by US Attorney Preet Bharara who said that “John Ashe, the 68th president of the UN General Assembly, sold himself and the global institution he led.” Bharara is still investigating and wants to knows if it’s “bribery business-as-usual at the UN.”
The UN officials are of course shocked, dismayed, insulted, and just generally troubled as they have been with other scandals.
The scandal over two nonprofit organizations in the UN gives a clear picture as to the crony role of these private organizations in UN affairs. It’s the tip of the iceberg.
South-South News media company and the Global Sustainability Foundation were the conduits for $1.3 million in bribes to John Ashe. Ashe is alleged to have promoted Chinese business interests at the UN and in the Caribbean for money. Doesn’t this sound like what Hillary has done with her Foundation? Executive staff from GSF and South-South News were arrested Tuesday along with Mr. Ashe.
The UN reported that they haven’t launched an internal investigation because diplomats are governed by the ethical codes of their home countries. They are trying to distance themselves from the entire mess.
They will fully cooperate they said. They will possibly launch an internal investigation given the seriousness of the charges.
At the same time, the years-old sex scandal in which UN peacekeepers in the Central African Republic, including French and African officers, who were sexually abusing children, has a whistleblower claiming the UN knew about the abuse about two months before they admitted knowing, according to Fox News. Her report was leaked in full by another whistleblower Anders Kompass.
There is a serious question as to when the UN moves on these reports or whether they sweep them under the carpet.
UN official Anders Kompass, who leaked the report was both praised and fired and rehired for it and is still under investigation by the UN.
Another corrupt venture was the Oil-for-Food Program, established by the United Nations in 1995 which was established to allow Iraq to sell oil on the world market in exchange for food, medicine, and other humanitarian needs for ordinary Iraqi citizens without allowing Iraq to boost its military capabilities.
In addition to criticism of the basic approach, the program suffered from widespread corruption and abuse. Throughout its existence, the program was accused of unlawfully diverting profits to the government of Iraq and to UN officials. These accusations were made in many countries, including the US and Norway.
A report by UN investigator Paul Volcker, released in October 2005, found that the Australian Wheat Board, later AWB Limited, was the biggest single source of kickbacks. In exchange for trouble-free disembarkation of wheat purchased under the Oil-for-Food Programme, the Australian Wheat Board paid ‘trucking charges’ totalling A$300 million to Alia. Alia is a real Jordanian trucking company, but one with no role in the distribution of Australian wheat in Iraq. Alia kept a small percentage of ‘charges’, and passed the remainder to Saddam’s government.
