Alex Newman: Wealth Redistribution and Globalism, for the Climate

Wealth Redistribution and Globalism, for the Climate  “And because nearly every human activity in the New World Order falls under the umbrella of “fighting climate change,” the importance of this effort is hard to overstate.” 

by Alex Newman

KATOWICE, Poland — The word “ambition” was on everybody’s lips during the United Nations climate summit, almost as if everyone was reading from the same script. But it was not the sort of ambition parents urge their children to show in their studies, their sports training, or their future careers. Instead, the term was being used to describe how “ambitious” the governments and totalitarians who made up the “Parties” of the COP24 climate conference would be in imposing draconian, unpopular, and, in many cases, totalitarian policies on the people they rule.

The attendees of the 24th “Conference of the Parties” intend to be fairly ambitious in centralizing and consolidating their power, though once again the participants did not get all they wanted.

After two weeks of negotiations and months of pre-negotiations, almost 200 governments and dictators from all over the world agreed on a massive and absurdly complicated document that promises to redistribute more wealth and institutionalize the mechanisms to control human emissions of carbon dioxide — and by extension, to control every human activity.

As is usual with such events, the resulting document is mind-numbingly complicated. In an official press release, even the UN itself described the agreement as a “complex and difficult document.” That may be an understatement. But the complexity was obviously by design. If humanity clearly understood what was happening — essentially the fastening of shackles on people and nations under the guise of controlling the climate — there would likely be blood running in the streets. The uprisings across France in response to a new carbon tax, one component of the overall agenda being pushed by the UN and its members, would seem mild by comparison.

And so the almost 150-page agreement inked in Katowice was written in a way that makes it virtually impenetrable to all but the most highly trained lawyers and policy wonks. But while the rules may be obscure and difficult to read, they are reportedly extremely important. And they assuredly will be, since the UN and other alarmist groups will surely find in them the power to do myriad things. As the state-funded BBC put it, these rules “will govern the way the world tackles climate change for decades to come.”

And because nearly every human activity in the New World Order falls under the umbrella of “fighting climate change,” the importance of this effort is hard to overstate.

Officially, the document, being referred to as everything from the “Paris Agreement Working Programme” to the “Katowice Climate Texts” or the “Katowice Package,” is meant to prevent global temperatures from rising 1.5 degrees Celsius above “pre-industrial” levels. More than a few observers, though, recalled the famous story of King Canute. According to legend, in an effort to prove that his power was limited and that God was supreme, Canute placed his throne at the sea shore and commanded the tide to stop rising. Obviously, it continued to rise. “Let all men know how empty and worthless is the power of kings, for there is none worthy of the name, but He whom heaven, earth, and sea obey by eternal laws,” Canute was recorded as saying.

Despite the total failure of every UN climate model to accurately predict temperature changes as the Earth’s CO2 levels have increased (they all predicted much warmer temperatures than we’ve had), there was no  humility on display among the self-styled climate dignitaries and excellencies assembled in Poland. In their ludicrous quest to control weather and global temperatures by raising gas prices and restricting choices, no pronouncement was too absurd. Indeed, the official narrative broadcast endlessly throughout the summit was that humanity only has 12 years left to do what the UN says, or the Earth will be destroyed due to the carbon-emission sins of evil humans — and particularly evil Western humans, since Chinese and Indian emissions are apparently less evil than emissions from Americans or Germans.

What Does It Do?

Often described as a “rule book,” the agreement is “designed to operationalize the climate change regime contained in the Paris Agreement,” the UN said. The Paris Agreement was concocted by former President Barack Obama and other globalist leaders at the 2015 UN climate summit in the French capital. This pseudo-treaty, which was never ratified by the U.S. Senate and which President Trump announced the U.S. government would withdraw from, has enormous goals — namely, fundamentally transforming the planet.

Alex Newman: Government to Re-Educate Kids of “Right-Wing” Parents

Government to Re-Educate Kids of “Right-Wing” Parents  “In other words, treating a daughter as a daughter and a son as a son is now considered harmful to children by the extremist regime ruling Germany.”

by Alex Newman

In what was seen by many observers as a throwback to evil ideas from Germany’s National Socialist (Nazi) days, German authorities helped publish a pamphlet advocating the re-education of children whose parents disagree with the regime’s official (and totally insane) ideology. Among the ideas that are verboten: opposition to “gender theory,” the “sexualization” of children, and mass immigration. So-called education must help combat “right-wing populism,” the document added.

Critics blasted the document’s instructions for using the language of children to detect thought crimes by parents. According to the brochure, parts of which were translated into English for an article by LifeSiteNews.com, parents with attitudes the state deems unacceptable can be sniffed out. In particular, they can be detected through the use of “seemingly harmless words which stem, however, from the jargon of the New (or Old) Right and which imply a deeply misanthropic attitude.”

The Orwellian propaganda also gives examples of warning signs that children may come from a “racist” or “right-wing” family. One involves a brother and sister who seem “especially obedient” and have no “so-called disciplinary problems.” The siblings in question also display “traditional gender roles,” with the sister wearing “dresses and braids” and learning “needlework” at home while the boy “is physically being strongly challenged and drilled.”

Another example involves a mother coming to school to complain that her son was dressed up as a girl and had his finger nails painted at school the previous day. The mother “declares that this has a bad influence upon her child; children should not be further confused; boys are boys, girls are girls.” Such attitudes are not allowed in today’s totalitarian Germany, it seems.

According to the document, “gender-stereotype parenting styles limit the manifold possibilities of children and [adversely] affect their development.” In other words, treating a daughter as a daughter and a son as a son is now considered harmful to children by the extremist regime ruling Germany. Another issue raised in the document is when parents complain about the “premature sexualization” of their children.

To deal with such situations, the document calls on the school brainwash the children with “diversity” propaganda and “children’s rights” ideology, holding that children have a right to be whatever gender they please. The teachers are also expected to “explain that gender diversity and tolerance are welcomed at the pre-school” and that children must be encouraged to “experiment with themselves.” The teachers are also supposed indoctrinate them with far-left political views.

The controversial brochure, which was funded by the German Ministry of Family Affairs and published by a tax-funded foundation, includes a lengthy forward by Family Affairs Minster Dr. Franziska Giffey. The dangerous left-wing extremist claims that children must be trained in a “democratic manner” and that education must be steered toward “children’s rights,” which is code from trampling on parental rights. Giffey also lashes out at the “significant increase of right-wing populist movements,” suggesting the regime’s indoctrination centers will be used shift the political system in a more totalitarian direction.

The tax-funded “foundation” that published the tax-funded brochure, known as the Amadeu Antonio Foundation, is led by a confessed spy for the barbaric Stasi, the infamous “intelligence” agency of the murderous communist regime that enslaved and terrorized East Germany. And so, more than a few critics highlighted the resemblance and parallels between the totalitarian ideology in the brochure and the the totalitarian ideology of the communist and National Socialist regimes in Germany.

Unfortunately, the disgusting hatred of families, faith, and freedom exhibited in the brochure is simply a local manifestation of a global movement — a totalitarian movement that has thoroughly infiltrated American education, too. But unlike in Germany, where Adolf Hitler’s ban on home education remains in place, American parents still have options. Now would be the time to exercise those options, before it is too late.

Alex Newman: Deep State Mole in White House Boasts of Sabotaging Trump

Deep State Mole in White House Boasts of Sabotaging Trump  “Of course, the globalist Deep State always thinks it knows better than the American people.”

by Alex Newman

A senior official in the Trump administration supposedly admitted in an “anonymous” New York Times piece that he or she, and many other top figures, are deliberately conspiring to sabotage the president’s agenda, an agenda that the American people voted for in the 2016 election. The supposed writer even suggested that members of Trump’s Cabinet had considered calling him crazy and removing him under the 25th Amendment. Assuming the Times is not lying, which is not necessarily a good assumption considering the left-wing paper’s long history of lies, the op-ed confirms once again the existence of a subversive “Deep State” that will defy its own boss — and the American people who constitutionally elected him — to advance a globalist agenda that is unconstitutional and was soundly rejected by voters at the polls. Trump, though, suggested he would be getting the last laugh.

In a series of social-media posts, President Trump responded to the “resistance” op-ed by suggesting there was a good chance it was a fraud, citing the establishment media’s long history of dishonesty and hatred of the current administration. But if it is real, he argued, it is simply evidence that the “Swamp” in Washington, D.C., is desperately fighting back against being drained. It may even be considered treason, Trump suggested. “Does the so-called ‘Senior Administration Official’ really exist, or is it just the Failing New York Times with another phony source? If the GUTLESS anonymous person does indeed exist, the Times must, for National Security purposes, turn him/her over to government at once!” Trump wrote on Twitter. “I’m draining the Swamp, and the Swamp is trying to fight back. Don’t worry, we will win!”

In a televised statement from the White House during a meeting with county sheriffs, Trump also ridiculed the Times and CNN, the discredited cable news network with collapsing ratings amid 24/7 anti-Trump hysteria. “We have somebody in what I call the failing New York Times talking about he’s part of the resistance within the Trump administration,” Trump said. “This is what we have to deal with. And you know, the dishonest media … it’s really a disgrace.” Trump then went through a litany of good news — employment numbers, manufacturing growth, deregulation, ending ObamaCare’s hated “individual mandate,” starting construction on the wall — before taking aim at the Times and the supposed op-ed writer.

The agenda of the Deep State swamp and its media allies, Trump said, is about “open borders,” allowing America to be overrun with “disaster and crime.” Because Trump opposes those things, “they don’t like Donald Trump,” the president continued. “And I don’t like them, because they’re very dishonest people,” he said. “Remember this also, about the New York Times: When I won, they were forced to apologize to their subscribers. They wrote a letter of apology — it was the first time anybody has ever done it — because they covered the election incorrectly. So if the failing New York Times has an anonymous editorial — can you believe it? ‘Anonymous,’ meaning gutless — a gutless editorial.” He also slammed the “Deep State” and suggested that Americans would win the battle against it in the end.

In the editorial, Trump’s self-styled “senior official,” of whom there are hundreds in an administration, boasted that “many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda.” “I would know,” he added. “I am one of them.” While conceding that Trump has already “made America safer and more prosperous” with his policies, the “resistance” activist claims that the president also “continues to act in a manner that is detrimental to the health of our republic.” That is why “many” of Trump’s appointees, according to the alleged mole, are working to thwart the president’s policies that they disagree with. As examples of Trump’s supposed bad behavior, the Deep State operative points to labeling the “fake news” media as the “enemy of the people.” And yet, surveys consistently show that almost all Americans realize that most of the mass media is lying to them.

“It may be cold comfort in this chaotic era, but Americans should know that there are adults in the room. We fully recognize what is happening. And we are trying to do what’s right even when Donald Trump won’t,” the supposed “senior official” claimed, citing as examples an array of foreign-policy positions Trump campaigned on, such as non-hostile relations with Russia, that the Deep State is working to subvert. “He complained for weeks about senior staff members letting him get boxed into further confrontation with Russia, and he expressed frustration that the United States continued to impose sanctions on the country for its malign behavior. But his national security team knew better — such actions had to be taken, to hold Moscow accountable.” Of course, the globalist Deep State always thinks it knows better than the American people.

Ironically, the piece goes on to glorify the late neoconservative warmonger John McCain, a fervent globalist and a key operative with multiple Deep State organizations. Even the briefest survey of the McCain-backed foreign-policy disasters of recent decades would suggest that the author of the piece must have been smoking something — or reading too much propaganda in the New York Times. Consider, among the recent examples, that McCain was in Libya in 2009 meeting with dictator Moammar Gadhafi and plotting how to funnel more U.S. weapons and military aid to the brutal regime. Just two years later, McCain switched sides and was openly supporting an uprising against Gadhafi led by self-proclaimed al-Qaeda leaders who had been killing U.S. troops not long before. The disaster in Syria followed a similar course. And Iraq. And Afghanistan. Continue Reading

Alex Newman: Atlanta School Ends Morning Pledge of Allegiance to be “Inclusive”

Atlanta School Ends Morning Pledge of Allegiance to be “Inclusive” “The globalist establishment is working overtime to sideline nations, national identity, self-government, and patriotism…  “

by Alex Newman

A tax-funded school in Atlanta, Georgia, announced that students would no longer recite the Pledge of Allegiance each morning. Instead, the school said students would be expected to recite the “Wolf Pack Chant” that will “focus on students’ civic responsibility to,” among other things, “our global society,” officials said. It was all in the name of “diversity.” But the backlash was fast and furious.

The controversial decision at the K-8 Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School, announced earlier this month, was made “in an effort to begin our day as a fully inclusive and connected community,” elementary Principal Lara Zelski said in a statement. “Over the past couple of years it has become increasingly obvious that more and more of our community were choosing to not stand and/or recite the pledge.”

Apparently, a number of pro football players choosing to protest during the national anthem inspired some of the faculty and students to refuse to participate in the pledge at school. “There are many emotions around this and we want everyone in our school family to start their day in a positive manner,” Zelski continued. “After all, that is the whole purpose of our morning meeting.”

She noted that students would continue to “lead the meeting.” But instead of standing at the meeting to pledge allegiance to their Republic, under God, with liberty and justice for all, the students would participate in the yet-to-be-developed “Wolf Pack Chant.” As part of that “chant,” the students would pledge responsibility to “our global society,” a frequent term used by globalists to refer to the dictator-dominated United Nations. Then the pledge could be said in classrooms if students wanted to.

When the news got out, it caused outrage across Georgia and beyond. “I’m sure our House Education Committee will examine whether taxpayer funds should be used to instill such a divisive ideology in our students,” warned Georgia House Speaker David Ralston, a Republican. Other top officials and political leaders echoed those remarks, citing Georgia law that requires tax-funded schools to have a time set aside for the pledge.

After the statewide and national uproar, the school quietly backtracked. “It appears there was some miscommunication and inconsistency in the rollout,” Board Chair Lia Santos said. “Starting next week, we will return to our original format and provide our students with the opportunity to recite the Pledge during the all-school morning meeting.”

The globalist establishment is working overtime to sideline nations, national identity, self-government, and patriotism in its quest to build what multiple former presidents have described as a “New World Order.” And of course, school children are in the crosshairs. Obama’s “Education” Secretary Arne Duncan boasted repeatedly that the UN and the Obama administration were both aiming “to prepare better global citizens.”

With government schools and the establishment working overtime to demonize America in the minds of children using lies and fake history, it is no surprise that a growing number of students refuse to say the pledge. Those numbers will continue to grow. And fixing this problem will require more than just pressuring schools to continue the pledge.

What is needed instead is a total overhaul of the education system to stop the indoctrination and the dumbing down. In the meantime, parents must do everything possible to protect their children from the anti-American, globalist agenda being force-fed to them in government schools.

Alex Newman: Democrats Sound Alarm as Far-left Fringe Takes Over Party

Democrats Sound Alarm as Far-left Fringe Takes Over Party –  “On the far-left, though, there seems to be little coherence to the agenda…  “

by Alex Newman

The Democrat Party is cracking up, but there are efforts underway to bring it back from the brink. As socialist-ruled nations across the Americas implode into violence and mass starvation, the fringe left-wing allies and supporters of those murderous strongmen in America are said to be on the verge of taking over the Democratic Party. Democratic Bernie Sanders (shown) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are both offered as examples of the “future” of the party. But after tolerating, encouraging, and flirting with the far-left fringe for years, supposedly more moderate Democrats anxious about an electoral pummeling are finally starting to speak out as a quasi-civil war breaks out in the party.

But with self-described liberals making up less than half the party and just one fourth of the electorate, the ultra-liberal Democrat Party may be too far gone to be salvaged. Consider that Communist Party USA leaders openly brag about how they “utilize” the Democrat Party to advance their totalitarian agenda in America. And consider, too, that a number of known communists and socialists were on the Democrat Party’s Platform Committee in 2016. In short, the party is wildly out of touch with mainstream America — and becoming even more so with every day that passes.

Some analysts have suggested that President Donald Trump now has the Democrats exactly where he wants them: Looking like absolute fools on national television praising the regime in Venezuela, seeking to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), calling for open borders, demanding government-controlled healthcare, behaving like fascist savages or overgrown children while terrorizing conservatives, and more. But as self-proclaimed “moderate” Democrats try to bring the party back from the brink of destruction, it remains to be seen who will win out. Plus, by pushing amnesty and mass migration, establishment Republicans could still save the Democrat Party and destroy their own.

But for now, it does not look good for Democrats. When overconfidence on the part of an incumbent allowed self-styled “Democratic Socialist” Ocasio-Cortez to defeat a longtime congressman in a primary in ultra-liberal New York, the divisions that became apparent in the 2016 Democrat primary came into focus. Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez, for instance, proclaimed that Ocasio-Cortez was the “future” the party. A number of far-left candidates are even bringing Ocasio-Cortez and Sanders in to endorse them, hoping to capitalize on her sudden fame and her improbable victory and Sanders’ status as an outsider.

But then she started talking, making outlandish statements so far detached from reality that even the far-left “fact checkers” have called her out. She also revealed that her positions are more fluid than her comrades believe gender to be; for instance, she went from supporting a two-state solution regarding Israel and Palestine to opposing it almost immediately afterward. Conservatives celebrated, hoping to make her the face of the Democrats. “We need more people like her,” Trump ally and Brexit architect Nigel Farage told a group of young U.S. conservatives. “The more loophead socialists, the crazier — the crazier people that they put up for the other party, the better it’s going to be for you guys.”

But after she repeatedly made a fool of herself on national television in the weeks since her win, and after poll results showed three in four American voters would not knowingly vote for a socialist, Democrat bigwigs and the establishment behind them are re-thinking their strategy.

Former FBI boss James Comey, a Deep State swamp creature under fire for improperly protecting Hillary Clinton from prosecution, urged Americans to vote Democrat in the mid-terms. But a few days later, he was warning the Democrat Party that they would scare away normal people if they keep acting like kooks. “Democrats, please, please don’t lose your minds and rush to the socialist left,” Comey wrote on social media. “This president and his Republican Party are counting on you to do exactly that. America’s great middle wants sensible, balanced, ethical leadership.”

In mid-July, a group of “leading moderate Democrats,” as the press described them, gathered in Columbus, Ohio, to argue that the party should quit bashing the free-market system and obsessing over income inequality. The conference, organized by the establishment-backed think tank “Third Way,” called on Democrats to focus more on promoting “opportunity.” The self-styled “center-left” organization, which would have been considered radical left just a few years ago, backs virtually the entire agenda of the globalist establishment and the far-left. But it does it using more deceitful rhetoric.

Congressman Jim Himes (D-Conn.), one of the participants in the Ohio conference, urged “progressives” to tone down the extremism. “It harms us in areas where we need to win,” he was quoted as saying. “To my progressive friends who got excited about Abolish ICE, I understand the emotions, the moral vacuum that is involved in splitting up families. But when you go out there and say, ‘This is who we are,’ you’ve now made life harder for the 60 or 70 Democrats fighting in districts where we need to win if we ever want to be in the majority. Abolishing ICE is not a real political proposal.”

But for many of his increasingly unhinged colleagues demanding open borders and socialism, it is a very real political proposal. In fact, as this magazine documented in 2016, the party’s platform committee was dominated by open communists and socialists, who used their positions to push the Democrat Party further to the totalitarian left than it has ever gone in history. Even radical leftists like Senator Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) are no longer far enough left for the communist- and socialist-controlled Democrat Party of California, which endorsed her socialist primary challenger.

In some cases, the radical left wing of the Democrat Party is openly allying itself with mass-murdering communist regimes against the United States. Consider California Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown, who forged an unconstitutional treaty with communist China, the most murderous government on the face of the earth. The plan: In defiance of the U.S. government, continue implementing a globalist scheme to destroy the state’s economy and further centralize power over everything under the guise of stopping “climate change.” More than a few analysts suggested Brown was committing treason.

On the far-left, though, there seems to be little coherence to the agenda — except in terms of bringing down Western Christian civilization, the U.S. Constitution, and the God-given liberties enshrined in America’s founding documents. As an example of the cognitive dissonance now afflicting the far-left fringe working to take over the Democrat Party, consider a July 23 e-mail by the George Soros-funded MoveOn.org. The message touts two Muslim women running for Congress as “progressives,” Rashida Tlaib in Michigan, an Arab, and Somali immigrant Ilhan Omar in Minnesota, who apparently got involved in Democrat Party politics as a child just six years after arriving in America. Of course, Islam takes a dim view of “women’s rights,” and homosexuality is a capital offense under Islamic law known as Sharia. And yet, the the e-mail soliciting support for the two Muslim women candidates says they will take on unspecified “attacks on women’s rights and the LGBTQ community” by Trump and Republicans.

One of several fringe groups involved in pushing the party even further to the left is known as “Justice Democrats.” After the Third Way “Opportunity 2020” event by supposedly moderate Democrats, the outfit release a statement slamming the “establishment wing” of the Democrat Party for its “losing strategy” that has resulted in “thousands of lost seats across the country.” “We believe Democrats should engage with working class Americans, we believe we have an obligation to mobilize disenchanted voters and give them a political home,” the group said, demanding government healthcare, “guaranteed jobs,” an end to “systemic racism,” and more. The outfit, founded by former staff of Bernie Sanders’ 2016 campaign, has endorsed almost 80 “progressive” candidates seeking public office.

But there is a growing amount of anecdotal and data-driven evidence suggesting that moving further to the left will decimate the Democrat Party even further. And despite the foaming at the mouth in the establishment media, even the establishment’s propaganda polls suggest Trump is doing just fine. In fact, according to a Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey showed Trump’s job approval rating rose to 45 percent, the highest level of his presidency in that particular poll. Among Republicans, Trump remains massively popular, with 88 percent of GOP voters approving of his job so far.

By contrast, at this point in Obama’s term, just 81 percent of Democrats approved of the job he was doing. Indeed, aside from George W. Bush, whom the nation rallied behind after the September 11 attacks, Trump was the most popular president within his own party of any other on the list, stretching back to Truman. That is bad news for Democrats who hope to peel away from supposedly disaffected Republicans to help win in 2020. And keep in mind, those numbers come despite a constant barrage of fake news and anti-Trump propaganda aimed at the president, something that is increasingly becoming obvious even to the president’s critics.

Ultimately, as readers of this magazine know well, the “establishment” of both major parties cares little about the voters or what they want. Instead, top Republicans and top Democrats are all part of the Deep State Swamp — a network that includes semi-secret organizations such the globalist-minded Council on Foreign Relations and the Bilderberg meetings, as well as true secret societies such as the Bohemian Grove and the Skull and Bones society. As such, rather than obsessing over controlled partisan politics, Americans who truly hope to preserve liberty and the Constitution should get involved in educating their communities about the Deep State and other key issues. Unfortunately, there are no shortcuts.

Alex Newman: Facing Corruption Scandals, Communist Ex-UN Boss Gets Immunity

Facing Corruption Scandals, Communist Ex-UN Boss Gets Immunity –  “Bokova’s husband, Kalin Mitrev, is also a longtime communist operative with deep ties to international communism…  “

by Alex Newman

Another major scandal is brewing at the disgraced UN Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization. With former UNESCO boss and longtime Communist Party bigwig Irina Bokova and her communist husband both accused of widespread corruption, the controversial new head of the UN “education” agency — herself a Socialist Party member — gave them both diplomatic immunity. The scheme, which appears designed to protect the communist duo from corruption allegations across multiple jurisdictions, includes a bizarre contract paying Bokova $1 that has drawn intense criticism and caused even more suspicion. But for now, archaic UN “diplomatic immunity” protections are likely to hamper any law-enforcement investigations or potential prosecutions.

The New American first became interested in Bokova amid investigations into UNESCO schemes to hijack and weaponize education worldwide. It very quickly became apparent that the longtime member of the Bulgarian Communist Party, which slaughtered hundreds of thousands of innocent people, was hoping to indoctrinate children into the UN-backed ideologies of globalism, humanism, and socialism. “We have the collective duty to empower every child and youth with the right foundations — knowledge, values and skills — to shape the future as responsible global citizens, [emphasis added]” she declared at a UN summit on education in South Korea, one of many public statements vowing to transform the attitudes and values of children worldwide.

It also very quickly became apparent that the frequent accusations of corruption and malfeasance being made by watchdogs and analysts deserved to be seriously examined. First, Bokova was caught lying on her CV. Then, her ownership of luxurious properties around the world — New York City, London, Paris — properties that investigators said her income could not account for — was exposed by the watchdog group Bivol. After that, scandals involving cronyism in her appointments of unqualified candidates to senior UN posts emerged. She was also widely accused of using public money to campaign for the UN secretary-general job while offering “awards” to potential supporters of her bid including Obama, Communist Chinese dictator Xi Jinping’s wife, and other key players.

That pattern of alleged corruption appears to have continued — and the benefits are still accruing. While Bokova was running UNESCO, a post she held until recently, the Rothschild-backed communist did more than a few major favors for Russian chemical giant PhosAgro, including forming a “partnership” between the UN agency she ran and the controversial company in 2011. On June 2, 2017, the Moscow-trained Bulgarian communist even gave a speech at the Kremlin-backed St. Petersburg International Economic Forum in which she showered praise on the conglomerate and its leadership.

We need chemistry to move forward the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development,” said Bokova, a reference to the totalitarian UN plan for humanity sometimes referred to as Agenda 2030 or the “Sustainable Development Goals” (SDGs) which the Communist Chinese regime played a “crucial role” developing. “This is why our partnership with PhosAgro … is so important, to support the creativity and innovation of young scientists, guided by the Principles of Green Chemistry.” She also expressed “special gratitude” to PhosAgro boss and controversial Russian billionaire Andrey Guryev for the “leadership he brings to strengthening cooperation between PhosAgro and UNESCO.” And finally, she expressed confidence that the cooperation between the two “will continue to go from strength to strength.”

Unsurprisingly to those monitoring Bokova, she joined the board of directors for PhosAgro almost immediately after leaving UNESCO. While details of her compensation package are not public, sources within UNESCO said the numbers were believed to be extraordinary. The New Americanmagazine reached out to Bokova in March with a request for details about the relationship with PhosAgro, including financial arrangements. She did not respond. This magazine has offered her multiple opportunities to comment or respond to previous articles, but in each case, she has declined. In at least two cases while she was still running UNESCO, though, her deputies sent letters that they declined to post publicly in the comment section.

Bokova’s husband, Kalin Mitrev, is also a longtime communist operative with deep ties to international communism and the former Bulgarian regime’s mass-murdering “security” services. And Mitrev, who also joined the ranks of international bureaucracy by working at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, has been credibly accused of corruption, too. According to multiple news reports last September, Bulgarian authorities launched an investigation into Mitrev. Among other major concerns, Mitrev received about half a million U.S. dollars, part of it via Swiss bank accounts, as part of an alleged money-laundering and influence-buying scheme known as “Azerbaijani laundromat” tied to the brutal dictatorship ruling Azerbaijan. The prosecutor’s office has not provided any recent updates on the status of the investigation.

The case was opened after the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) and other media exposed the allegedly shady dealings in major newspapers across Europe. Despite her well-known close ties to the brutal regime in Azerbaijan, Bokova denied knowledge of her husband’s schemes. “I am not privy to the details of my husband’s consulting business and equally, your questions about my opinion on Azerbaijan and its leadership are wholly misplaced,” she was quoted as saying in media reports surrounding the investigation into her husband. “I most vehemently deny any wrongdoing and will consider defamatory any publication of these totally unfounded conjectures on your part.”

It was not clear how extensive Bokova’s attempts at legal action against journalists have been, although at least one prominent reporter who reached out to The New American said that Bokova had targeted him. Several other embattled UN agency chiefs, including the chief of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), who is connected to a Latin American communist network, as well as the head of the UN World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), have been abusing European legal systems to silence and punish journalists for exposing corruption and crimes at their UN agencies. U.S. lawmakers have also expressed concerns over Bokova’s ties to the regime in Azerbaijan. READ MORE
