Alex Newman: Bill Gates: Philanthropist or Scoundrel?

by Alex Newman

It is undeniable that Bill Gates gives lots of his own money to causes around the world, causing many to dub him a philanthropist. But his causes and motives are questionable.

He has already subjected America’s children to educational quackery as the main sponsor of Common Core, and he has gathered more data on you and every American than you could imagine. Now, as this article will show, one of the world’s leading population-control zealots wants to inject you, your whole family, and every single person on the entire planet with an as-yet undeveloped and untested vaccine — supposedly to protect against coronavirus. Then he wants to track you using technology that sounds like it comes out of a science fiction movie. And unless and until everybody on Earth submits to his vaccination demands, the technocratic globalist has declared repeatedly, society cannot and will not return to normal. That man, of course, is Microsoft founder Bill Gates — perhaps one of the most controversial people in the world right now, despite media adulation.

With all Gates’ connections, media appearances, and demands, one might be forgiven for thinking that he was emperor of the world. And if humanity is not careful, the agenda Gates represents may well succeed — potentially in the near term. That means liberty, health freedom, the family, self-government, much of the population, and the economy are in mortal danger.

Simply put, Bill Gates is potentially dangerous because he has great wealth and great influence, both of which he uses to try to make the world follow his dictates. Gates is so powerful that he was able — almost single-handedly — to impose the national education standards known as Common Core on almost the entire nation. (Elite private schools such as those his children attended proudly rejected it.) Gates put more than $2 billion of his own money into the scheme, backed by the Obama administration. Pointedly, he pushed the installation of Common Core though there were indications that it would lead to reduced educational quality. In fact, Common Core’s Validation Committee refused to sign off on the plans because they were so bad. And Gates himself claimed to be unsure about its success. “It would be great if our education stuff worked, but that we won’t know for probably a decade,” the tycoon admitted in 2014. Since then, multiple studies of U.S. students have confirmed that the standards led to scores cratering across the board, making American children less educated than ever before.

Despite Common Core’s failures, with help from the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), Gates’ educational vision is going global. In 2004, Gates was in Paris to sign an agreement with UNESCO on behalf of Microsoft to work on global standards, guidelines, curriculum, and technology. The UN agency had already been working on centralizing control over education for decades. And the UN’s educational goals don’t seem to be about making children into critical thinkers; among other schemes, it peddled the World Core Curriculum. Written by Assistant UN Secretary-General Robert Muller, the scheme was based on the teachings of Lucifer Publishing Company founder Alice Bailey, an advocate of world government and a one-world religion merging many of the world’s religions together under one banner.

On the global health front, Gates’ activities are as ill-advised and harmful as his education schemes — perhaps more harmful. Now that Trump has put on hold U.S. contributions to the World Health Organization, Gates is the world’s largest single donor to WHO — an outfit literally run by a Communist Chinese-backed Politburo member of an ethno-Marxist terror organization from Ethiopia. He is the world’s largest single financier of vaccines, too, vaccines that are notorious for their harmful side effects.

Most of the major media fawn over Bill Gates, portraying him as some sort of nerdy, self-made business genius turned selfless and benevolent “philanthropist” simply working to “save” and “help” humanity. The reality, though, as this article will show, is much different. Gates, afflicted with the same messianic complex so common among the global elites, is pushing an agenda of globalism, technocracy (rule by scientific elites instead of self-government), forced vaccines, dangerous indoctrination, and totalitarianism. And one does not need to dig deep to find the abundant evidence.

What Does Bill Gates Believe?

Perhaps the issue that has defined Gates’ giving and efforts more than any other is population control — in particular, the Malthusian idea that there are too many people on the planet for “Mother Earth” to sustain. In his public statements and in his “charity,” Gates and his wife, Melinda, have focused on “overpopulation.”

It appears this passion was instilled in him by his father, Planned Parenthood bigwig Bill Gates, Sr., a prominent former attorney. Gates, Sr. still advises Junior, despite being in his mid-90s.

“When I was growing up, my parents were always involved in various volunteer things,” Gates, Jr. said in a 2003 interview with Bill Moyers on PBS. “My dad was head of Planned Parenthood. And it was very controversial to be involved with that. And so it’s fascinating; at the dinner table my parents are very good at sharing the things that they were doing, and almost treating us like adults, talking about that.” In short, Gates, Sr. was a eugenicist.

Like father, like son — the younger Gates has picked up where his father left off, showering hundreds of millions on abortion behemoth Planned Parenthood and other abortionist groups. At a 2017 “Global Family Planning Summit” in London, Gates’ wife announced that the Gates Foundation would be spending almost $400 million on population-control schemes through 2020 — much of which has and will, at least indirectly, finance the killing of pre-born babies. She also called for sex education to begin “very, very early.” Gates has also been a major donor to the UN Population Fund, the pro-abortion UN agency that specializes in reducing the human population and has been exposed in Congress working with the Communist Chinese government on forced abortions and forced sterilizations.

Gates also thinks contraception should be ubiquitous, if not mandatory. In 1997, Gates and his wife started pouring money into various forms of birth control. And Gates-funded contraception hasn’t only meant fewer babies, it has also led to other dangers and deaths. For instance, Gates funded and peddled the contraceptive Depo Provera — especially to Third World women. Aside from preventing pregnancy, sometimes by inducing abortion, it was blamed by experts for causing or at least contributing to cervical cancer, breast cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, stroke, heart attack, sterility, and miscarriages. It also encouraged the spread of  HIV/AIDS, chlamydia, and other debilitating and deadly venereal diseases. The Gates Foundation spent $2.6 billion buying and giving this drug to 100 million African women.

On politics, while Gates normally remains quiet, he has spoken out against President Donald Trump and has come down firmly on the side of Democrats and the establishment for years. During the 2016 election, he funded three Democrat campaigns for Congress. In 2012, the tech billionaire hosted a fundraising dinner for Barack Obama’s campaign, charging attendees almost $13,000 per plate.

He has also been outspoken about his desire to see a more powerful federal government and president. “Right now it feels like I wish there was slightly more power in the presidency to avoid some of these deadlocks,” Gates was quoted as saying, adding that he wished America had a system more like the United Kingdom. “So I think what [Obama] wants to do and what he’s actually able to do, the gap is so big there that it’s hard to know in some ways.” More on Gates’ wishes for more command and control later.

Patrick Wood, author of two key books exposing the global elites’ push for technocracy, blasted the Microsoft founder and highlighted his crucial role in the push for global governance by experts and technocrats. “Bill Gates exhibits the mind of a Technocrat in three key areas: education, vaccines and population control and data,” said Wood, who worked with the late Antony Sutton to expose the Trilateral Commission. “Every single initiative that he is involved in today is central to the implementation of Technocracy on a global scale, including the drive for a permanent ID for every human on planet earth.”

Vaccines for Population Control?

Despite being highly counter-intuitive at first glance, even Gates’ obsession with vaccines fits into his population-control agenda. Indeed, Gates, the world’s largest financier of vaccines, is notorious for peddling the idea that vaccines will be a crucial tool in reducing the population.

During a 2010 “TED Talk,” for example, Gates made clear his belief that a lower population was necessary to save the planet. After he told the audience that human emissions of carbon dioxide would have to go down to zero to avoid killing the planet, he totaled up emissions from each person and said, “Probably one of these numbers is going to have to get pretty near to zero.” He added, “The world today has about six billion people. That’s headed up to about nine billion. Now, if we do a really great job on new vaccines, healthcare, and reproductive health services [contraception and abortion], we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.”

Did you catch that? Vaccines, “healthcare,” abortion, and contraception are all part of a comprehensive strategy to reduce the number of people on Earth.

The next year, he was singing the same tune. In a 2011 interview, he told CNN’s Sanjay Gupta that he was hoping for “unbelievable progress in both inventing new vaccines and making sure they get out to all the children who need them.” “We only need about six or seven more — and then you would have all the tools to reduce childhood death, reduce population growth, and everything — the stability, the environment — benefits from that,” he continued. (Emphasis added.) Again, notice that Gates ties vaccines to reducing the population, and says that fewer people will be good for “stability” and the “environment.”

Now, apologists for Bill Gates argue that what he really means is that by vaccinating everyone, more parents will choose to have fewer children. Gates himself has suggested that this is what he meant with his cryptic comments about using vaccines to reduce the population. “A surprising but critical fact we learned was that reducing the number of deaths actually reduces population growth,” he claimed. But the track record of Gates’ vaccination programs suggests that in reality, the vaccines themselves will be used to thin the population — and not by encouraging parents to have fewer children.

Gates’ Vaccine Programs

Consider a 2014 “tetanus” vaccination campaign in Kenya targeting women and girls by the UN’s WHO and UNICEF that was financed in large part by Gates — this in a nation that had recently been targeted by the UN Population Fund in a report for drastic population-control efforts. Concerned about the vaccines, the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association obtained multiple samples of the vials and sent them to independent labs for testing. They found that the vaccines were laced with beta human chorionic gonadotropin immunogen, which causes the body to stop a pregnancy from coming to term. Women become infertile because their own immune systems attack the critical hormone hCG. WHO discovered in 1976 this “birth-control” vaccine and injected the substance into women in other nations, including Mexico, Nicaragua, the Philippines, and beyond.

“This proved right our worst fears; that this WHO campaign is not about eradicating neonatal tetanus but [is] a well-coordinated forceful population control mass sterilization exercise using a proven fertility regulating vaccine,” explained Dr. Wahome Ngare, spokesman for the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association. “The unfortunate truth is that the vaccine was laced with hCG [immunogen] just like the one used in the South American cases. Further, none of the girls and women given the vaccination were informed of its contraceptive effect.” Shortly after this, the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops released a statement signed by every Catholic bishop in Kenya warning people to avoid the vaccines, saying, “We are convinced that it is indeed a disguised population control program.” This incident was one of several highlighted recently on the floor of the Italian Parliament, with MP Sara Cunial criticizing Gates for sterilizing large numbers of African women and calling for him to be prosecuted for crimes against humanity.

Meanwhile, WHO was exposed by The New American in January of 2019 training medical professionals to lie about the safety and efficacy of vaccines. Declaring that “vaccine hesitancy” was one of the greatest threats to “global health,” the Gates-funded UN agency created a training guide for health workers. It gives strategies for convincing parents to comply with vaccination programs that include using manipulation and even providing misleading or downright false answers to possible questions parents might ask. “Can vaccines cause harmful side effects, illness and even death?” a hypothetical hesitant parent in the program asks the doctor. “No, vaccines are very safe,” the health worker is instructed to say, even though that is demonstrably false. Every vaccine maker in the world acknowledges that vaccines can cause harmful side effects, illness, and even death — that is why they successfully lobbied the U.S. Congress for a total exemption from all liability, forcing U.S. taxpayers to pay billions of dollars in damages to victims of vaccines.

Even WHO admitted last year that most of the polio paralysis around the world was actually caused by the Gates-funded polio vaccination campaigns in Africa and Asia. According to an Associated Press report published on November 25, 2019, “Global health numbers show there are now more children being paralyzed by viruses originating in vaccines than in the wild.” The WHO-created “Independent Monitoring Board” also warned in a report that month that the vaccine-derived polio virus was “spreading uncontrolled in West Africa.” And it described the attitude of  WHO and its “partners” to this news as “relaxed.”

In India, Gates is also blamed for unleashing hell on the population under the guise of “vaccination” programs. Writing in the Indian Journal of Medical Ethics, Indian doctors Neetu Vashisht and Jacob Puliye blamed the WHO/Gates polio vaccination programs for causing almost 50,000 additional cases of paralysis in children in just one year. Almost half a million cases of paralysis attributed to the vaccines occurred between 2000 and 2017, according to doctors cited by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and other prominent vaccine skeptics. Indian authorities eventually got involved and worked to stamp out Gates’ influence, but the damage was done. Gates-backed trials of HPV vaccines, given to tribal children in rural India without parental consent, also killed and injured many victims, according to media reports of lawsuits that went all the way to that nation’s Supreme Court. The scandal eventually concluded with the government being forced to make drastic changes to its vaccine permissions, including restrictions on foreign groups; however, Indian law had no provisions to penalize ethical and legal violations in trials. In addition, an all-party parliamentary investigation accused Gates’ operatives of unethical practices in a bid to make profits for Big Pharma, an allegation the Gates-funded group behind the schemes denied.

Now, Gates wants to vaccinate the world against coronavirus. “The thing that will get us back to the world that we had before coronavirus is the vaccine and getting that out to seven billion people,” Gates said in one of many similar public statements, echoing propaganda being pumped out by the enormous network of think tanks, propagandists, pharmaceutical companies, and organizations that he funds. “Once you have a safe and effective vaccine and get that out to almost all of the people on the planet … we will go back to normal, and economies will recover.”

On April 30, Gates claimed on his blog that the idea of using drugs to treat COVID-19 was unrealistic and said that the only way to “go back to the way things were” will be to make sure that “almost every person on the planet has been vaccinated against coronavirus.” “Humankind has never had a more urgent task than creating broad immunity for coronavirus,” he claimed, adding that it should be given to newborns. “Realistically, if we’re going to return to normal, we need to develop a safe, effective vaccine. We need to make billions of doses, we need to get them out to every part of the world, and we need all of this to happen as quickly as possible.” The WHO will need to give its “approval,” he added, painting the UN outfit as a sort of global health ministry.

Global Tracking and Tyranny

But Gates really isn’t offering his vaccines as much as he is demanding people get them: Gates has been calling for everyone to receive a “digital certificate” proving that he or she has been vaccinated. In March, Gates said on his blog that the “question of which businesses should keep going is tricky,” but eventually “we will have some digital certificates to show who has recovered or been tested recently or when we have a vaccine who has received it.” Fauci at National Institutes of Health has echoed Gates’ rhetoric on having “coronavirus immunity cards” for everyone, and he was quoted in Politico saying this was “being discussed.”

This idea is hardly new. For years, Gates and other globalist billionaires, including multiple Rockefeller foundations, have been peddling the “ID2020” scheme. According to the effort’s website, the plot seeks to mandate that everyone on Earth have a “digital identity” that would follow them from birth to death. It would keep track of all sorts of data, including health and vaccine information, enabling governments and globalists to keep people everywhere under control. This has been a major focus of Gates’ work: Everyone must be identified, vaccinated, and tracked. A Gates-backed biometric ID for 1.2 billion Indians was the test run.

Starting in 2016, Gates funded research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to develop “a novel way to record a patient’s vaccination history: storing the data in a pattern of dye, invisible to the naked eye, that is delivered under the skin at the same time as the vaccine.” In a press release about the scheme released late last year, MIT said the technology “consists of nanocrystals called quantum dots.” This tattoo-type scheme would “remain under the skin where it emits near-infrared light that can be detected by a specially equipped smartphone.”

More recently, Microsoft published a patent for a “cryptocurrency system using body activity data,” which is now registered with the UN World Intellectual Property Organization. With the war on cash accelerating, this technology to obtain currency with a piece of technology embedded in the body could be used to implement a digital currency regime that would end privacy and put every individual at the mercy of the powers that be. The patent number on it is WO-2020-060606-A1. The numbers 2020 and 060606 (666) have been widely picked up online, fueling endless speculation and theories about their possible significance.

Much the same has happened regarding Gates’ funding of NIH research into the use of luciferase and luciferin, bio-luminescent compounds, in medical applications. In fairness to Gates, those two terms, which were invented before he was born, are used in biotechnology for their scientific meanings, not in reference to the prince of darkness.

“Contact tracing” schemes to track everyone under the guise of stopping the coronavirus, which are being rolled out worldwide, are also being funded by Gates, along with George Soros. Everything from hiring an “army” of contact tracers to using smartphones as tracking devices is now under way. According to top local, state, and even WHO officials, the tracing schemes will also be used for splitting up families if a member of the family is suspected of having been exposed to COVID-19.

Former U.S. Congressman Ron Paul, a medical doctor, has been highly critical of these coronavirus efforts, making a good case that these are totalitarian actions. “If government can force individuals to receive medical treatment against their will, then there is no reason why government cannot force individuals to buy medical insurance, prohibit them from owning firearms, dictate their terms of employment, and prevent them from taking arguably harmful actions like smoking marijuana or drinking raw milk,” he said. “Similarly, if government can override parents’ wishes regarding medical treatment for their children, then there is no reason why government cannot usurp parental authority in other areas, such as education.”

He added that Americans should “reject this ‘deal.’ Instead, they should demand an immediate end to the lockdowns and the restoration of individual responsibility for deciding how best to protect their health.”

Preparing Well — or a Little Too Well?

Propagandists in the establishment media have been fawning over Gates and his supposed foresight, noting that the billionaire technocrat has been warning about a looming pandemic for many years. And it’s true — he has been. In fact, the preparations and statements he has made over the years were so eerily similar to the way things played out under COVID-19 that they have more than a few critics crying foul. Clearly, Gates and his allies at the globalist World Economic Forum (WEF) were getting ready to use a pandemic to remake the world to suit their technocratic vision.

In October 2019, Gates and the WEF put on Event 201 at the “Bloomberg School of Public Health” at Johns Hopkins University. The program simulated an “outbreak of a novel zoonotic coronavirus transmitted from bats to pigs to people that eventually becomes efficiently transmissible from person to person, leading to a severe pandemic.” The pathogen and disease “are modeled largely on SARS, but it is more transmissible in the community setting by people with mild symptoms.” Key figures from Big Government (including China’s), Big Business, and Big Pharma all participated. In the scenario the nightmare only ends when a vaccine comes along. And naturally, tyranny is the preferred response — everything from censoring social media to autocratic control over the public were celebrated as necessary.

Such planning isn’t anything new, though. A decade earlier, the Rockefeller Foundation issued a report headlined “Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development.” The report featured four scenarios that could help pave the road toward the world order envisioned by globalists. One was a future pandemic scenario, dubbed “LOCK STEP,” in which the United States suffers huge losses from an outbreak due to a lack of tyranny, while Communist China fares much better due to its ruthless totalitarian system with no constraints on government power.

The Rockefeller Foundation’s LOCK STEP scenario goes on to outline the expected results of this pandemic. Citizens everywhere will demand “top-down direction and oversight” over whole nations and economies. The scenario also touts, among other policies to supposedly deal with the outbreak, “biometric ID for all citizens,” “tighter regulation of key industries,” “a suite of new regulations and agreements,” and other power grabs allegedly needed to “restore order and, importantly, economic growth.” In fact, reading the decade-old report feels very much like reading the news today, with the very same “solutions” being advanced that all tend to erode liberty.

Speaking with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, Gates praised China’s response to the coronavirus, while attacking the United States. “China did a lot of things right at the beginning,” Gates claimed, one of countless pro-China statements made by the billionaire over the years. “Some countries did respond very quickly and get their testing in place and they avoided the incredible economic pain, and it’s sad that even the U.S., that you would have expected to do this well, did it particularly poorly.” Meanwhile, Gates blasted criticisms of Beijing’s response, including the fact that its regime covered up the outbreak, as a “distraction.”

Interestingly, Gates was also a chief financier of the two outfits that provided the projections of mass death that panicked governments around the world into pursuing the policies that Gates was peddling. The first was the Institute for Health Metrics Evaluation at the University of Washington in Seattle, which was launched with a $100 million grant from Gates. The other was the Imperial College of London, which normally specializes in producing climate-change hysteria and sustainable-development propaganda. Both organizations warned of millions of coronavirus deaths, with the Imperial College even projecting a potential 2.2 million deaths just in the United States under one scenario. Both organizations eventually acknowledged that their numbers were wildly out of touch with reality, though policymakers apparently never got the memo. And both organizations were heavily funded by Gates, as were companies all over the world that received investments by Gates to find vaccines for the coronavirus.

Troubling Associations and Connections

Gates’ affinity for totalitarianism is also evidenced by his close ties to globalists and totalitarian leaders.

Indeed, in 2017, he joined the “elite” Chinese Academy of Engineering, an organ of the State Council of the People’s Republic of China headed by Communist Chinese “Premier” Li Kequiang.

Recently, Gates wrote a letter to Chinese dictator Xi Jinping — whose government has a well-documented history of imprisoning and murdering political dissidents, even going so far as to harvest their organs and put them up for sale — about the coronavirus. In the letter, which was reported by Communist Chinese propaganda organs, Gates boasted that his foundation “has committed up to 100 million U.S. dollars in emergency funding, much of which will help China bolster epidemiological research, emergency intervention, and the research and development of drugs, vaccines, and diagnostics,” reported the state-controlled China Global Television Network.

Xi responded to Gates with a fawning letter of his own. “I support your cooperation with relevant Chinese institutions, and look forward to enhanced coordination and concerted efforts in the international community for the sake of [the] health and well-being of all,” he said.

Gates’ choice of associates demonstrates that, to him, the ends justify the means — no matter what — and that any association that can forward the cause is therefore a suitable one. Case in point: Gates’ very close links to Jeffrey Epstein, the infamous child-trafficking pedophile who supposedly killed himself in prison. According to the New York Times, Gates repeatedly visited Epstein’s home and even flew on one of his private jets — one of which was known as the “Lolita Express” owing to the perversion and child rape known to have been ubiquitous on board. To the point, unlike other associates of Epstein, such as Bill Clinton, Gates only began his relationship with Epstein after the pervert was convicted on child-prostitution charges in Florida that forced him to register as a sex offender. Gates’ employees also regularly visited Epstein’s mansion. And Gates’ former science advisor, Boris Nikolic, was listed as a back-up executor for Epstein’s will, according to media reports.

As for globalist associations, while Gates himself is not listed as a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, Microsoft Corporation is listed on its website as a corporate member. In 2003, the Gates Foundation also gave a grant to the group to establish a “Senior Fellowship” in “Global Health and Foreign Policy.” Then-CFR boss Leslie Gelb explained the purpose like this: “Global health issues must be integrated, in study and in practice, into U.S. foreign policymaking. This will be the chief mission of the new Senior Fellow in Global Health Policy Studies.”

It worked. Just a few years later, the Obama administration launched the “Global Health Initiative,” showering billions of U.S. tax dollars on contraception and $63 billion on “improving global health.” Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who said publicly that the CFR tells her “what we should be doing, and how we should think about the future,” was crucial in the scheme, too. If globalist billionaires funding “senior fellowships” at the CFR can hijack U.S. policy so easily — and they can — just imagine how easy it is for them to control bankrupt and corrupt Third World kleptocracies to advance a New World Order.

Gates also wrote an article in the CFR mouthpiece Foreign Affairs promoting “gene editing” technology to engineer organisms, bio-tech developments that will be important in his coronavirus vaccine schemes. Before that, Gates’ wife gave a speech there in 2008 praising the CFR for the “indispensable work you do.” “Your work benefits every American,” she claimed about the organization, which has been instrumental in surrendering U.S. sovereignty and eroding constitutional government. Melinda also said, “I would like to acknowledge a special debt to the Council,” adding that the “success of our efforts” depends on “informed decisions by policymakers” whom the CFR influences.

Gates has also been an attendee at the infamous Bilderberg summits, the semi-secret group of about 120 to 150 extremely influential (mostly) Americans, Canadians, and Europeans that meets once per year behind heavy security. The shadowy group, whose members have admitted to plotting global policy and working toward world government, has started releasing lists of attendees. On at least one occasion, Gates was not listed but was spotted sneaking in by reporters outside. Critics have suggested that American participants — business tycoons, politicians, officials, bankers, and more — ought to be prosecuted under the Logan Act, which prohibits Americans from working on policy with foreign governments without having official authorization to do so.

Another Gates group with less-than-noble aims is known as the “Good Club.” In 2009, the Times of London reported on a secret meeting of top globalist billionaires aimed at reducing the population. The article, headlined “Billionaire club in bid to curb overpopulation,” reported that “some of America’s leading billionaires have met secretly to consider how their wealth could be used to slow the growth of the world’s population.” The summit was “convened on the initiative of Bill Gates,” the report said, and the billionaires “discussed joining forces to overcome political and religious obstacles to change.”

Others in attendance included New World Order architect David Rockefeller, who boasted in his memoirs of “conspiring” “against the interests” of his own country with a “secret cabal” to create “a more integrated global political and economic structure — One World, if you will.” Also among the “Good Club” are Warren Buffett, George Soros, Michael Bloomberg, Ted Turner, and Oprah Winfrey. Aside from their fervent desire to reduce the population, all of the members seem to have an infatuation with Chinese dictator Xi and a vitriolic hatred of President Trump.

Can He and His Cronies Be Stopped?

On the bright side, the public appears to be waking up. All over America, protesters showed up at state capitols to demand a restoration of liberty and an end to the lockdowns. Outrage against Gates and his agenda is boiling over too. A petition on the White House website calling for investigations into the Gates Foundation, “for medical malpractice and crimes against humanity,” gathered 500,000 signatures in just three weeks — more than five times the number of signatories needed to get a formal response from the president.

“As we look at events surrounding the ‘COVID-19 pandemic,’ various questions remain unanswered,” the petition reads. “On Oct. 18th of 2019, only weeks prior to ground zero being declared in Wuhan, China, two major events took place. One is ‘Event 201,’ the other is the ‘Military World Games,’ held in none other than Wuhan. Since then a worldwide push for vaccines & biometric tracking has been initiated. At the forefront of this is Bill Gates, who has publicly stated his interest in ‘reducing population growth’ by 10-15%, by means of vaccination. Gates, UNICEF & WHO have already been credibly accused of intentionally sterilizing Kenyan children through the use of a hidden HCG antigen in tetanus vaccines. Congress & all other governing bodies are derelict in duty until a thorough and public inquiry is complete.”

A thorough congressional investigation of Gates and his foundation, along the lines of the 1952 Select Committee to Investigate Tax-Exempt Foundations and Comparable Organizations, is long overdue. The Senate Environment Committee scratched the surface with its 2014 report on the “Billionaires Club” behind the “green” movement. But the Gates, Rockefeller, Ford, Soros, Bloomberg, and other foundations are clearly up to no good — and they are using their oftentimes ill-gotten wealth to hijack government and undermine freedom.

Even more alarming is that he is not done yet. Not only has he claimed that we cannot get back to normal until there is a new coronavirus vaccine, but he is also assuming that the current coronavirus pandemic will not be the only one. “No one who lives through Pandemic 1 will ever forget it,” he warned. How Americans respond to “Pandemic 2” may well determine whether freedom and self-government survive.

Bill Lockwood: The Left: A Coven of Neo-Canaanites

by Bill Lockwood

Nothing more clearly demonstrates the pagan religious orientation of the left than the recent effort by Democrats to begin turning our entire economy Greenward as their input into the recent COVID-19 stimulus package. According to Jeff Brady of NPR, “Clean energy and climate advocates say the huge stimulus bill Congress is negotiating should address not only the economy, but also climate change.” To Democrats, the Corona Virus pandemic is not about helping the American people—it is about fundamentally transforming the American economy. 

For example, eight Democratic U.S. senators also called upon fellow lawmakers, according to NPR news, to tie financial help for airlines and cruise lines to new environmental requirements that would reduce their carbon footprints.” According to Michael Greenstone, who served as the Chief Economist for President Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers, “We can both stimulate the economy … and we can lay the foundation for a lower-carbon future.”

Environmental Paganism

The Green Agenda, sponsored by all socialists and Democrats, is not about science. It is more nearly akin to a paganistic religious belief which jettisons real science in favor of doctrine. Like the Canaanite paganism of the Old Testament which involved itself in nature-worship and sacrificing in “sacred groves”, the New Green Deal advocates root themselves in a false ideology.

In what was called the “Eco-shot heard ‘round the world,” Berkeley historian Lynn White, before the American Association for the Advancement of Science over 30 years ago, frankly admitted that the source of our environmental “crisis” was the “victory of Christianity over paganism.” Plainly siding with ancient Canaanite paganism, he went on to say that “Christianity made it possible to exploit nature in a mood of detachment to the feelings of natural objects …Christianity bears a huge burden of guilt.” He went on to predict that “more science and more technology are not going to get us out of the present ecological crisis until we find a new religion.” 

Note carefully the Environmental Activists were sounding apocalyptic alarms over 30 years ago. They haven’t changed. Noteworthy it is as well that it is all about religion.

The same thing is true according to Green Grandfather Al Gore. His infamous book Earth in the Balance made a frontal attack on the Genesis account of creation by re-writing the entire first few chapters of Moses’ account. The end result was a complete VALUE SHIFT from a human-centered world view to what the Clinton Administration called A Biocentric Worldview. This tells us that humans are seen as merely another species inhabiting a democratic “ecosystem.” No more value a human being than a bug.

Rockefeller of Middlebury College, a theology professor and environmentalist, explains: “In a biocentric approach, the rights of nature are defended first and foremost on the grounds of the intrinsic value of animals, plants, rivers, mountains, and eco-systems rather than simply the basis for their utilitarian value or benefit to humans.”

This biocentric approach was formally adopted by the Clinton Administration. Alton Chase, in his book In a Dark Wood: The Fight Over Forests and the Rising Tyranny of Ecology, describes the new faith of the elite, as it sprang to life in the Clinton Administration. “The Administration, under the rubric of ‘reinventing government’ … adopted biocentrism as the guiding philosophy of all federal land management.”

Recent COP25 Conference

In December of last year the United Nations sponsored a COP25 conference in Madrid, Spain. Attendee Alex Newman writes that the “cult-like nature of climatism was on full display.” An alternative conference occurred in Madrid which was totally ignored by the Main Stream Media. It was called “Climate Reality Conference” hosted by a coalition of environmental groups that reject climate alarmism, including The Heartland Institute, the CO2 Coalition, the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), and the European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE).

The Climate Reality Conference featured numerous scientific experts which totally debunked the UN Global Alarmists. But what is particularly interesting is that a number of these world-class scientists likened the Green Agenda to so much religious propaganda.

William Happer, for instance, an international renowned Princeton physicist, put it plainly. “I hope sooner or later enough people recognize the phoniness of this bizarre environmental cult and bring it to an end.” MIT Meteorologist Richard Lindzen has frequently referred to the Global Warming crowd as a “cult” because they refuse to change their beliefs in response to evidence and proof. (See Alex Newman, “Dangerous Climate ‘Cult’ Ignores Science,” in The New American, 2-17-20).

Lindzen even stated it this way in a 2015 radio interview: “Think about it: You’ve led an unpleasant life, you haven’t led a virtuous life, but now you’re told, you get absolution if you watch your carbon footprint. It’s salvation!” Dr. Ivstan Marko, a chemistry professor at the Catholic University of Louvain and head of the European Chemical Society, told The New American magazine that “the climate cult had perverted Christianity to develop its dangerous theology. Instead of repenting of sins, climate cultists want you to believe that you must repent of your ‘carbon footprint.’”

“It’s a new religion going on,” Marko explained. Many other top scientists and political leaders are also calling the Green Agenda pushed by Democrats and soft-shelled Republicans a religion. Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott as well as Eco-activist Stuart Scott have so likened it.

The entire Green debate illustrates the throes of a religious conflict occurring in America. Unless enough American Christians, oriented and educated sufficiently in the Holy Scriptures to combat the growing forms of ancient Canaanite religious beliefs, engage in the cultural wars, America has seen its better days.

Bill Lockwood: Good-bye American Heritage?

by Bill Lockwood

The inspiring ideals enshrined in the founding documents of our nation include a limited government that allows maximum personal freedom, equality of opportunity, and equal justice under the law. These are founded upon the pillars of inalienable rights, including the fact that all men are created by God as equal. But we have gone about “as far left” as socialist policies can take us if the Democratic debates are an indication of where America will be tomorrow.

“Our job,” Bernie Sanders spouted in the Iowa debate, “is to build the United Nations.” Not surprising from a socialist who has been photographed enjoying toasts with the leader of the old Soviet Union’s gulag communistic state. But frightening that he maintains substantial support in the Democratic Party.

The United Nations has been from its inception a design for socialistic world government. In its most recent COP 25 climate summit in Madrid, Spain, Executive Director Stuart Scott called for the UN to implement drastic population-control policies and “family planning” such as control the Chinese. Other plans include a massive transfer of wealth from “western countries” (read, “United States”) to third world poorer nations in the form of “climate reparations.” The UN is a world dictators’ dream. This is what Bernie Sanders favors. National Socialism is not brave enough—we need International socialism.

It is inescapable, however, that we have already lost so many of our freedoms that have made America the envy of the world. Whether due to taxes, to regulations on our businesses, farms, homes, cars, to our activities, to our speech, and to our abilities to exercise without government interference our religious liberty—our American heritage has dwindled.

So the issue is whether we will preserve even the semblance of our once-cherished ideals of limited government, the sovereignty of the States, the protection of life and property that is so nobly enshrined in our founding documents? Will we maintain any semblance of our freedom over our own health care or will we capitulate to the totalitarian proposals of the Democrats by which the government becomes a monopoly funded 100% by the American taxpayer? Will we continue the path to a more limited government under president Donald Trump or listen to the siren song of socialists?

Samuel Padover edited Thomas Jefferson’s letters in Thomas Jefferson on Democracy. He refers to Jefferson as “the St. Paul of American democracy.” Padover completes his introduction;

“The modern trend is in the direction of greater concentration of power in the hands of government. The problem of individual freedom within the framework of a more or less regulated economy will have to be fought out in our age, just as the question of political liberty and the free market were the issues in Jefferson’s day. … Jefferson felt that without liberty, life was not worth living. …In the difficult years that undoubtedly lie ahead, Americans will have to gather all their moral forces for the preservation of their way of life, their liberties, and their opportunities.”

These words were written in 1939.

Alex Newman: School Children Terrorized About Death from “Climate Change”

by Alex Newman

MADRID — Inmates at government schools in Canada and beyond are being absolutely terrorized with “climate” alarmism, to the point that some of them were convinced that they will die in just 8 years unless the United Nations is given more power and money. Scientists have compared the tactics and hysteria to those used by cults and dictators.

The poor children were absolutely terrified. “We are gonna die! I don’t want to die!” screamed one little child during a propaganda session on “climate” forced on 2nd and 3rd graders at a public school in Toronto. A concerned parent who reached out to FreedomProject Media about the scandal, Lejla Blazevik, said her 8-year-old daughter told her the rest of the class had joined in, too.

Her own daughter, Joylaea Blazevic, got home from school after the indoctrination and recounted what happened at school that day: “She’s like: ‘Mommy, they said that we’re going to die in eight years.’” Even believers in the man-made global-warming hypothesis, including child psychologists, told media outlets reporting on the traumatic incident that it was “inappropriate.”

Among other things, the video featured Swedish girl Greta Thunberg scolding adults. The video included the now-infamous remarks: “People are suffering. People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!” After that, a clock counting down 8 years was shown to the students, causing panic.

Ms. Blazevic vowed not to give up in this fight. “Again, my concern is for the 7- and 8-year-old children in this grade 2nd and 3rd class who may still believe that they’re going to die,” the mother told The Newman Report in an email before the story became an international scandal following an article in Canada’s National Post. “Also, the parents of these children need to be notified.”

School officials have issued contradictory responses to the scandal, ranging from denying and downplaying it, to apologizing and claiming it was for the children’s own good. On several occasions, according to emails obtained by The Newman Report, administrators claimed that it was just one student who yelled about dying. School officials also later claimed that the student in question had a habit of shouting that.

But not according to Ms. Blazevik, who wondered which of the contradictory statements by school officials were lies. “It was most of the children in the class who exclaimed ‘I don’t wanna die’ and not only one child,” she told The Newman Report. Indeed, the concerned mother spoke to a 7-year-old girl from her daughter’s class in front of that girl’s father, “and she said that she was happy that she’s going to die soon because that meant that she didn’t need to get married,” Blazevic recounted.

School officials also later claimed that students were “debriefed” and that the “nerves” of the children were “likely calmed” by re-assurances that they would not die from supposed man-made warming in 8 years. “My daughter is the best student in class, she attends school regularly and she is sure that the class was never corrected, not even on that day, during the presentation,” Blazevic said, expressing concerns that government-school employees were misleading parents and students.

School officials claimed the purpose of the propaganda video was actually to help the children to “resolve” the supposed problem of man-made climate doom. “Once again, we regret the impact the video and clock had on Joylea,” Prinipal Michael George told Blazevic in an e-mail obtained by FreedomProject Media. “Our intent is always to create critical thinkers & problem solvers with a perspective of contributing to the well-being of our global community.”

Meanwhile, in Germany, outraged citizens protested after the state-broadcaster showed video footage of young school children being taught to sing that their grandmothers are “pigs” for eating meat and driving gasoline-powered cars. “Every day my grandma fries herself a pork chop,” the seemingly happy children sing. “She does it because discount meat costs nearly nothing, my grandma is an old environmental pig!”

All over the United Nations COP25 “climate” summit in Madrid in December, meanwhile, brainwashed children ran around screaming about the alleged need to dismantle free markets, patriarchy, the economy, Western civilization, and more. They also demanded that the UN loot Western taxpayers, ban airplanes and “fossil fuels,” restrict meat consumption, and much more.

Leading scientists in Madrid, such as Princeton physicist and Trump advisor Dr. William Happer, warned that this was the behavior of a dangerous “cult.” “I hope sooner or later enough people recognize the phoniness of this bizarre environmental cult and bring it to an end,” said Happer, who added that the UN and governments were “wasting our time talking about a non-existent climate emergency.”

Clearly, though, the children are being prepared for something big. Former Vice President and discredited “climate” guru Al Gore, for instance, was quoted in the UN’s propaganda book “Rescue Mission Planet Earth: A Children’s Edition of Agenda 21” calling for a “worldwide monitoring system staffed by children … designed to rescue the global environment.”

THE TAKEAWAY

The mass-murdering totalitarian regimes of the 20th century such as those of National Socialist (Nazi) Adolf Hitler and Chinese Communist butcher Mao Tse-Tung relied on remarkably similar tactics to those now being deployed against Western children. With a combination of fear-mongering, indoctrination, and propaganda, these savage regimes drove a wedge between parents and their children, turning the children against their families to facilitate the destruction of liberty.

The results were deadly and catastrophic. Indeed, those tyrants collectively slaughtered hundreds of millions of people and enslaved billions more. It is time for parents to step in and put a stop to it — now — before it gets too far out of hand.

William F. Jasper: Raping With Impunity: UN Leaders Ignore Rape, Sex Crimes of “Peacekeepers” in Haiti Again

by William F. Jasper

A new report on the crimes of UN “peacekeepers” in Haiti reveals how “girls as young as 11 were sexually abused and impregnated by peacekeepers and then, as one man put it, ‘left in misery’ to raise their children alone, often because the fathers are repatriated once the pregnancy becomes known.”

The report, based on interviews with approximately 2,500 Haitians, was published on December 17 in The Conversation, a liberal-left collaborative effort of hundreds of academics and reporters funded by dozens of universities and globalist foundations (Ford, Carnegie, Gates, Sloan, Lilly). As The New American has been reporting for years, the UN’s “peacekeeping” troops and  police forces are infamous for carrying out atrocities — mass slaughter, torture, rape, child sex trafficking, pillaging — all over the world.

In addition, thanks to totally irresponsible supervision by UN officials, its peacekeepers caused a cholera epidemic that has already killed about 10,000 in the last several years and has infected hundreds of thousands of Haitians with the deadly disease. It is still killing around 1,000 Haitians per year. As outrageous as the heinous acts of the UN’s “Blue Helmets” are, the repeated inaction, indifference, and cover-up by the UN’s top officials is in many ways even more outrageous. Even worse than turning a blind eye to the criminal activities of those whom they have charge over, UN officials have repeatedly retaliated against heroic whistleblowers that have come forward to expose peacekeeper abuses.

The authors of the new report, Professor Sabine Lee of Britain’s University of Birmingham and Susan Bartels of Queen’s University in Ontario, Canada, together with their research team, interviewed 2,500 Haitians during the summer of 2017. They found hundreds of cases of sexual exploitation and abuse, but as in past incidents of rampant peacekeeper criminality — in Haiti, Mali, Congo, Ivory Coast, South Sudan,  the Central African Republic, the Balkans, etc. — no one has been held to account.

The Lee-Bartels report is entitled “‘They put a few coins in your hands to drop a baby in you’ — 265 stories of Haitian children abandoned by UN fathers.” “The UN Stabilisation Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) — the longest running mission by the organization in the country (2004-2017) — was originally mandated to assist local Haitian institutions in a context of political instability and organized crime,” Lee and Bartels write. “Its mandate was then extended due to natural disasters, most notably an earthquake in 2010 and Hurricane Matthew in 2016, both of which added to the volatility of the political situation in the country. After 13 years of operation, MINUSTAH closed in October 2017, transitioning to the smaller UN Mission for Justice Support in Haiti (MINUJUSTH).”

“MINUSTAH is one of the most controversial UN missions ever,” the authors note. “It has been the focus of extensive allegations of sexual exploitation and abuse. A shocking number of uniformed and non-uniformed peacekeeping personnel have been linked to human rights abuses including sexual exploitation, rape, and even unlawful deaths.”

However, the UN deals with the recurring charges of brutality and sexual exploitation by simply delivering more pacifying rhetoric. “Let us declare in one voice: We will not tolerate anyone committing or condoning sexual exploitation and abuse. We will not let anyone cover up these crimes with the UN flag…. Let us make zero tolerance a reality,” UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said, before a group of world leaders in 2017.

But, as the Associated Press noted shortly after the Guterres pledge quoted above, it was all sound and fury signifying nothing. “In March, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres announced new measures to tackle sexual abuse and exploitation by UN peacekeepers and other personnel. But the proclamation had a depressingly familiar ring: More than a decade ago, the United Nations commissioned a report that promised to do much the same thing, yet most of the reforms never materialized,” the AP story noted. “For a full two years after those promises were made, the children in Haiti were passed around from soldier to soldier. And in the years since, peacekeepers have been accused of sexual abuse the world over.”

“We’re From the UN; We’re Here to Help You”

On its Web page promoting UN careers, the UN self-servingly proclaims: “Wherever help is needed and people are suffering you will find dedicated United Nations staff contributing their time, assistance and expertise to positively transform lives and make the world a safer and better place for this and future generations.”

As the UN’s atrocious record in country after country shows, such UN boasts are mendacious and hypocritical beyond measure. Contrary to the UN’s claim that it has a “zero tolerance” policy regarding sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA in UN jargon), the reality is that the UN has given de facto immunity to its minions to rape and exploit with impunity. When peacekeeper violations become so blatant that even the pro-UN Fake News media start to demand some accountability, the UN simply sends the offending criminals home and recycles Blue Helmets in from one of its other operations around the world. While prattling endless platitudes about “the rule of law” and “justice for victims,” the UN makes sure that its accused employees are whisked away from national jurisdictions where they might have to actually answer for their crimes.

As we reported in 2016, the UN’s own field operations director at the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights resigned in disgust over the UN’s determined resistance to correcting the systemic peacekeeper abuse, as well as the retaliatory attitude of UN officialdom toward whistleblowers. That UN employee, Swedish national Anders Kompass, said the “complete impunity” for officials and the “lack of accountability” is so entrenched in the UN that it was “impossible” for him to continue working there.

Responding to the Lee-Bartels report, the UN, on December 19, issued a typical public-relations statement: “Sexual exploitation & abuse is unacceptable: it undermines the crucial trust between our personnel and the people we serve. Our partnership with Member States is bearing fruit to ensure accountability, justice & assistance for victims.”

This vacuous statement is simply another indication that depending on the UN to police and regulate itself is a false hope. Expecting genuine reform at the UN — after decades of repeated promises of reform —is not only a delusion, but a dangerous, deadly delusion.

Alex Newman has been the point man for The New American over the past several years on UN peacekeeper abuses and atrocities. His stories (see the linked articles listed below) detail a staggering record of peacekeeper barbarism in Haiti and around the globe.

Alex Newman: At UN Summit, America and Capitalism — Not CO2 — Are Enemy #1

by Alex Newman

MADRID — Throughout the United Nations COP25 “Climate” summit in Spain, America, the GOP, and President Donald Trump — not carbon dioxide or even “climate change” — were public enemy number one. Indeed, the U.S. government, the American people, their elected officials, and what remains of the free-market system that ushered in unprecedented global prosperity were all viciously and relentlessly attacked.

Globalists, communists, Islamists, socialists, environmentalists, and crackpots of all varieties dropped the mask in a carefully orchestrated show. Incredibly, even the many prominent Americans who spoke at the summit demonized their own nation and the freedom that made it so succesful. If the “climate” coalition gets its way, the consequences will be catastrophic for America, liberty, self-government, and material well-being.

Inside and outside the conference, activists funded by Big Oil, socialist governments, the Kremlin, the Rockefeller oil dynasty, and other shady sources shouted obscenities through bullhorns. “F*** Trump!” chanted a man with a bullhorn in front of about 100 “youth” and even more “journalists” from around the world. “F*** America!”

At a “Fridays for the Future” protest that began inside before heading into the street, shrieking children and “youth” screamed all sorts of Marxist talking points while putting their hands in the air — each one painted with an occult-style eye painted on it. The “young people,” terrorized and carefully managed by adults, chanted, among other things, “This is what a feminist looks like.” Occasionally, people would stand up and rant about the alleged evils of America, CO2, patriarchy, energy companies, markets, and more.

Once outside, the dozens of noisy children, made to look like an enormous march by the media, surrounded by well-spoken adults giving instructions and adoring “journalists” broadcasting the spectacle to the world, shouted “anti-capitalist, anti-capitalist” over and over again. Then they began chanting “system change, not climate change.” When asked about it, every protester said the goal was to dismantle what remains of the market system.

On the last day of the summit, “CommunismoEsVida” (Communism Is Life) was trending on Twitter in Spain as indoctrinated children on social media ranted against economic freedom.

Inside, similar rhetoric was everywhere. Infamous Canadian environmentalist David Suzuki, for instance, called for an end to free market. “Capitalism is at the heart of what is driving” alleged man-made climate change, he declared at UN summit. “We’ve got to throw the system out.”

He probably felt right at home. Even the big cheese, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, is an admitted socialist. Before taking the reins at the UN, he led the Socialist International, the world’s most powerful alliance of Socialist and Marxist political parties, many with the blood of countless innocents on their hands.

Among the significant demands was that the U.S. government hand over climate “reparations” under the guise of “loss and damage.” Hundreds of “youth” activists — many funded by the very governments and companies they were “protesting” against — demanded that America fork over the money. In short, poor and middle-class American taxpayers would end up paying Third World kleptocrats for supposedly causing bad weather, forest fires, and other natural disasters. Seriously. The UN now claims America cannot avoid paying up.

Adults speaking at the summit sounded similar. On one of the most prominent platforms in the entire UN summit, radical population-control advocate Stuart Scott with the group “Scientists Warning” blasted the United States as the “the kleptocratic States of America.” Speaking of President Trump, he went even further. “This man is a threat to the planet, as is his corporate owned Republican Party, who have been bought by the fossil fuel industry and other polluting industries,” argued Scott.

The idea that American officials and the voters who elect them represent a mortal danger to the planet has been a common theme for weeks. Prominent professor of international relations Ole Wæver at the University of Copenhagen even suggested that the UN Security Council could decide that “climate change” is a “threat to international peace and security,” thereby sending in UN “peacekeeping” troops to enforce its climate mandates at the barrel of a gun.

Scott, who told The New American in an interview that reducing the population of the planet was urgent, continued to spew hatred against Trump while sitting on the UN stage. “They have together done a huge disservice to humanity and all of life on Earth,” he said about Trump and Republicans. “They’ve done all this for the sake of money. Make no mistake: Trump has got a particular personality aberration.”

“The callousness of this man is astonishing and revolting,” Scott continued, blasting Trump’s “amazing depravity.” Not a single pro-Trump or pro-GOP speaker was allowed on stage to offer an alternate perspective.

Sharing the stage with him was Dan Galpren, an attorney and legal advisor to leading climate alarmist James Hansen. “The derangement goes well further than Trump,” he told the UN summit, adding that the entire Republican Party was deranged, as well. Even though the American people who voted for those elected officials pay more for the UN than anybody on the planet, nobody challenged the narrative in an official capacity throughout the entire two-week summit.

For some reason, Scott then shared some teenage gossip he heard about Trump during his childhood. “I grew up a couple miles away from where Donald Trump grew up,” he said. “And the story in the hood — the neighborhood — was that he got kicked out of a couple schools locally, and so his parents put him in a military academy where they tolerated him as long as his parents paid. And his initials became the acronym for serving detention at the military academy.”

He also claimed that by getting the U.S. government out of the UN Paris agreement, Trump was “not trying to protect the American people, that’s very clear.” Using nasty foul language to demonize Trump, Scott said the president was a reality TV star, “you will recall, who could create his own reality on his programs.” “This man somehow cheated, lied, hoodwinked the public into becoming president of the United States,” Scott said, claiming the GOP had rigged the election through “a lot of gerrymandering the districts to help make that possible.”

Christians, of course, say, “What Would Jesus Do?” when considering actions. Scott, though, concluded his highly controversial remarks by asking, “What would Greta do?” It fit perfectly with the words by Trump’s former climate advisor, Dr. William Happer of Princeton, who spoke at a separate non-UN summit in Madrid and accused the man-made warming crowd of being a “bizarre cult” that would do enormous damage if not stopped.

Other major speakers at the UN summit called for massive depopulation of America and Europe in order to stop “climate change,” while others said reducing the number of Africans and Asians should be a top priority.

Former Secretary of State John Kerry, an uber-wealthy former politician who also spoke from one of the most prominent stages at the UN summit, declared that he was ashamed to be American. “I assume the burden unfortunately of a country that is the largest naysayer of all,” he told throngs of officials, journalists, and activists from around the world. “And I’m sorry for that. I regret it enormously. Only the United States of America has a head of government who calls climate change a Chinese hoax.”

Kerry also took some time to lie, multiple times, about various issues ranging from diesel particulate to the supposed “science” underpinning the man-made-warming hypothesis. He claimed solar power, “now absolutely, under any standard by whatever you measure, is cheaper than coal, no question about it.” If that were true, everybody would be using solar power, of course.

Currently serving American officials who spoke at the summit were also extremists opposed to fundamental American values. Speaking on a panel called “Subnational strategies in North America for meeting Paris Commitments,” for instance, Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes called on the world to “stymie capitalism.” All of the other U.S. and Canadian officials were similarly left-wing extremists.

Indeed, despite constant shrieking about “this is what democracy looks like,” there was literally no representation for conservative Americans or Republicans anywhere at the summit. Not a single conservative, pro-America speaker could be found among the 25,000 attendees. There was just a tiny handful of American patriots who reject the man-made global-warming hypothesis even allowed in the conference, and none of them were given a platform to speak.

Prestigious U.S. scientists who reject the man-made-warming narrative were also denied a platform to share their views or express their concerns. Instead, a coalition of “skeptic” and “realist” scientists and experts such as Princeton physicist Dr. Happer, who served on Trump’s National Security Council, had to gather elsewhere in Madrid to present their views. Out of thousands of journalists from around the world, just a tiny handful showed up at the Climate Reality Conference they hosted.

The United States, along with a handful of other nations with governments that did not bow down to the “climate-emergency” agenda, consistently faced demonization by powerful activists inside, too. The “Climate Action Network,” for example, repeatedly gave the U.S. government the “Fossil of the Day Award” for being the “best at being the worst.” Even Canadian government officials in the audience cheered it on.

In the spectacles, funded by the Kremlin and the Rockefeller oil dynasty, trophies were handed out to activists pretending to be Donald Trump, who would stand up and make America look evil, greedy, and ridiculous. There were many supposed reasons for America being the worst country in the world: Not handing over enough money, not slashing CO2 emissions quickly enough, withdrawing from the Paris Agreement, sending delegates to represent U.S. interests despite being in the withdrawal process, and more.

Despite all the hatred, the U.S. delegation hardly rocked the boat in a serious way. “The United States continues to lead on clean, affordable, and secure energy while reducing all types of emissions ― including greenhouse gases ― over the last 15 years,” said U.S. Ambassador Marcia Bernicat, who headed the U.S. delegation. “Our model shows how innovation and open markets lead to greater prosperity, fewer emissions, and more secure sources of energy.”

After saying this COP25 would be the last one where the U.S. government would be a party to the UN Paris Agreement, she vowed that Washington, D.C., would remain involved. “We remain fully committed to working with you, our global partners, to enhance resilience, mitigate the impacts of climate change, and prepare for and respond to natural disasters,” Ambassador Bernicat said during the three-minute time allotted to the U.S. government.

In conversations with The New American, U.S. State Department officials said the reason 50 American delegates were required was to “represent U.S. interests” while the federal government remained involved in the Paris Agreement officially until next year. Depending on who one talked to though, it was not clear whether the U.S. delegation was advancing or slowing down “progress” on the UN’s controversial “climate” agenda.

“The United States is proud of its record as a world leader in reducing emissions, driving economic growth, and fostering resilience at home and abroad,” a State Department spokesman told The New American. “The United States will continue to be a leader in assisting our partners to reduce emissions, protect natural resources, increase resilience, and respond to natural disasters.”

With U.S. officials perpetuating the narrative that CO2 is pollution, despite Trump having called the theory a “hoax” to benefit Communist China, all the rage might seem hard to understand. But at least one heavyweight on the side of climate realism suggested the hatred against America had to do with the U.S. government’s lack of cooperation.

“Why is the UN having a hard time advancing the global warming ball?” asked Craig Rucker, president of the free market-oriented environmental group known as CFACT. “One name — Donald J. Trump and his plans to pull America out of the Paris Climate Accord. It’s no fun making spending plans when you can’t leach off the world’s biggest economy.”

“What is actually happening at this year’s UN climate talks is a wait-and-see game geared toward next November’s American election,” he continued. “After watching Britain give the Tory party its biggest victory since Thatcher during the talks, and moves now afoot to pull Britain out of the E.U. once and for all, government by global bureaucracy is under threat. The UN is plenty scared.”

Of course, if CO2 were the real enemy, the UN summit would have been praising America non-stop, as the nation’s emissions of the essential gas continue to plummet. Instead of America being demonized, the “climate justice” warriors would have targeted Communist China, which is far and away the world’s largest emitter of CO2. And yet, not only was the murderous regime in Beijing not criticized; increasingly, it has been painted as the savior of multilateral “climate solutions.”

With the raw hatred against America and freedom that was on display throughout the COP25, it should be beyond clear to Congress that not one more American cent should be used to fund this absurdity known as the UN. Instead, though, Democrats led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi promised to keep America shackled to the UN’s “climate” regime at all costs. The American voter is now the only significant human force holding back planetary disaster in the form of a UN “climate” regime. The next election will be crucial.

William F. Jasper: Socialists Stop Spread of Success

by William F. Jasper

The United Nations and the Socialist International are waging war against Chile and its conservative president, Sebastián Piñera. Since mid-October, Chile’s capital, Santiago, and other cities across the country have been wracked by violent riots, with dozens of people killed, thousands injured (including hundreds of police and military personnel), thousands arrested, and an enormous amount of destruction of public infrastructure and private property, including train stations, businesses, shops, and supermarkets.

The Piñera government declared a state of emergency and imposed curfews. President Piñera faces a National Congress that is stacked against him, as well as a hostile media, and leftist-controlled universities that serve as hotbeds for revolution.

The United Nations high commissioner for human rights, Michelle Bachelet, has responded to the turmoil by sending a team of UN investigators to Chile to examine allegations of human rights abuse by the Chilean government. This move by the UN should have caused suspicion from the get-go. Why? Well, for one thing, Michelle Bachelet is herself a former president of Chile (two terms, 2006-2010 and 2014-2018) and a virulent opponent of President Piñera. That alone should lead any reasonable observer to suspect, at the very least, that her UN “investigation” is likely to be politically motivated.

However, it goes much deeper than that. Bachelet, a hardcore Marxist, is an ardent admirer of the late communist dictator Fidel Castro, and, as one of her last acts as president of Chile, made a pilgrimage to Cuba to praise Fidel and meet with his designated successor and brother, Raúl Castro, the current communist dictator of Cuba. She is also a supporter of the Marxist regimes in Nicaragua and Venezuela.

In the 1970s, Bachelet left Chile and moved to communist East Germany, then one of the most oppressive dictatorships in the Soviet bloc. Moreover, Bachelet is a longtime member of, and was elected president while the leader of, Chile’s ultra-left Socialist Party, which is a member of the Socialist International, the global cabal of more than 135 national political parties from all continents, including former communist parties that have rebranded themselves as socialist or social democrat.  The secretary-general of the Socialist International is Luis Ayala, a radical Chilean who is a close comrade of Bachelet in the Socialist Party. Bachelet was selected for the UN high commissioner post by UN Secretary-General António Guterres, a former president of the Socialist International. Although barely known in the United States (because it is seldom mentioned by our controlled “mainstream” media — and is even largely ignored by our alternative media), the Socialist International (SI) virtually runs the United Nations and many of its agencies, with Guterres being only the most obvious example of its influence.

Another SI/UN alum is former Chilean President Ricardo Lagos, a former member of Chile’s Socialist Party and one of the Chileans often quoted in recent stories undermining President Piñera. He is also one of the few SI members named to the “Committee of Twelve Distinguished Members of the Socialist International.” In 2007, he was named as a UN special envoy on climate change, along with former SI vice president and UN functionary Gro Harlem Brundtland, the former prime minister of Norway.

Bachelet, Guterres, Lagos, Brundtland, and other SI/UN comrades are welcomed as honored guests at the CFR and other globalist gatherings. Bachelet and Lagos are both members of the elite Club of Madrid, as well as Inter-American Dialogue, where both have served as co-chairs.

The cause of Chile’s current “unrest,” according to the lords of the Fake News Media, was the government’s subway fare hike of 30 pesos, the equivalent of four U.S. cents. Anger over the fare increases, goes the standard line from media commentators, caused spontaneous, “student-led” flash mobs of hundreds of youths to jump the Metro turnstiles in protest, which then escalated to “youth-led” mobs setting buses and Metro stations on fire and looting stores, and then escalated still further and broadened into massive protests, supposedly motivated by “income inequality.”

This is the story we get from the New York Times, Washington Post, Associated Press, CNN, PBS, and the rest of the Deep State media cartel. Most of these “news” reports take their cues on the issue from so-called experts at the Council on Foreign Relations, the Council of the Americas, Inter-American Dialogue, and similar globalist propaganda founts that posture as objective think tanks.

According to Amelia Cheatham, a “Special Assistant” at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), “The turmoil began on October 18 with student-led protests over a metro fare increase.” Her CFR blog post entitled “What’s Behind the Chile Protests?” states that “Political unrest is sweeping Chile, as impatience with inequality grows in what has been one of Latin America’s most prosperous and stable countries.”

President Piñera and other Latin American leaders paint a different picture. “We are at war against a powerful enemy, who is willing to use violence without any limits,” Piñera declared in a late-night televised statement on October 29. “We are very aware that [the perpetrators of riots] have a degree of organization, logistics, typical of a criminal organization,” he said. According to news reports from Chile, Cuban and Venezuelan nationals were arrested as instigators of the rioting. And Chile is not alone in this regard.

On October 22, Argentina’s National Security Council met to consider the wave of violent protest that is sweeping across Latin America. Following the meeting, Argentine Foreign Minister Jorge Faurie pointed to Cuba and the Marxist dictatorship of Nicolás Maduro in Venezuela as the source of the orchestrated upheavals. “They intend to intervene in the political, institutional and social lives of our countries, threatening us like a Bolivarian hurricane that brings in its winds hunger, poverty, dictatorship, the loss of liberty and a prison sentence,” Faurie charged. “Bolivarian” refers to the political philosophy of Venezuela’s founding father, Simón Bolívar, which has been expropriated and hybridized by Hugo Chávez, Nicolás Maduro, and others of the communist-Left to advance their socialist agendas.

Alex Newman: UN Speakers Push Population Reduction for “Climate Emergency”

by Alex Newman

MADRID — To deal with the alleged “climate emergency,” reducing the number of people on the planet is high on the agenda among activists and speakers at the United Nations COP25 “climate” summit. The growing extremism and even paranoia among population-control advocates, who worry that more people will release more CO2 into the atmosphere, is reaching deafening levels. But the establishment media is largely keeping silent.

The advocates of population control and population reduction are divided, though, on what particular peoples and groups should be targeted most heavily. One key speaker at the UN summit said “white men” and especially Americans and Swedes must stop having babies. An exhibitor promoting “sustainable development,” meanwhile, argued that Africans and Asians ought to be the key target of the depopulation. Others think all of the above.

What means should be used was also a subject of debate. Some activists and speakers promoted propaganda, indoctrination, tax-funded contraception, abortion, ubiquitous birth-control availability, and even coercive population-reduction measures. Others say even more drastic means are needed to deal with the “emergency.” One UN speaker went even further earlier this year, suggesting that actually “killing” people could be on the table.

A major speaker at the UN summit, Oscar-winning director Michael Wadleigh (shown above) of “Woodstock” fame, minced no words in an interview with The New American. “Don’t have children — and I’m looking at you, white man,” he said on camera, speaking in a deep voice, echoing comments he made in high-profile official speeches at the summit.

The reason why it is so important to reduce the population of Europeans and their descendants is because their nations are more developed and they consume more resources, he said. Even Scandinavia and Sweden, which have a “clean” image, are destroying the planet, Wadleigh continued, warning that average Swedes consume 40 times more than average Tanzanians. Even socialist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is not radical enough on these issues, he said.

“If you were into population control or population reduction, which is good idea worldwide, you should go to Sweden, because if your efforts resulted in one less baby in Sweden, that would be equal to your efforts to go to Africa and reduce populations by 46 percent, sorry, by 46 people in Africa,” said the director turned population-control activist, who spoke just a few hours prior on the same stage as former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

Wadleigh, who has one child and works closely with the UN, crunched the numbers and became convinced. “So where does it make sense to start your population reduction efforts? Start with the people who are the highest per capita emitters, if your goal is to reduce climate change and unsustainable development,” he explained, without noting that the environment in more developed countries such as Sweden, America, Switzerland, Japan, and so on is generally far cleaner than in Third World nations.

Prominent population-control advocates such as neo-Malthusian Paul Erlich of “Population Bomb” fame and Obama’s “Science Czar” John Holdren have offered radical ideas on this subject. In their 1977 book EcoScience, the duo — who at the time were peddling “global cooling” alarmism — discussed mandatory abortions and adding “sterilizing agents” to the water supply as potential tools for bringing population levels under control.

When asked if those ideas might be going too far, Wadleigh smiled and responded: “You haven’t heard me talk yet!” The ultra-left-wing UN speaker, a fan of communism, did not elaborate on how much further he would be willing to go to reduce human numbers, before going on to speak about what he sees as over-consumption.

In one of his UN talks from one of the most prominent stages in the entire convention, Wadleigh emphasized the need for government coercion to achieve his vision. One of his main messages was the need to drastically reduce consumption. “We can no longer do this voluntarily,” said Wadleigh, pining for a global government that he said did not yet exist. “Make it a law, not a voluntary action.”

A few hours later, former Senator Kerry took the same stage to bad-mouth America and lie about all sorts of things. Among other “climate whoppers,” he claimed that solar energy was now cheaper than traditional forms of energy “by every metric.” If that were true, everybody would be using it, of course.

Rather than targeting Western nations — virtually all of which have birth rates at less than replacement levels — others in Madrid for the COP25 proposed targeting Third World populations. Alejandro Moran Rodriguez, for example, a UN volunteer at the COP25, was manning a booth promoting the UN’s controversial “Sustainable Development Goals.” He told Rebel News that countries in Africa and in Asia should be high on the list for population-control, because they do not have “that culture.” And so, governments must “manage their population,” he said, calling for UN enforcement of contraception.

Another UN speaker also veered into the highly controversial and sensitive area. Self-described “Eco-Social Strategist” Stuart Scott with the group Scientists Warning, who gave almost a dozen talks and press conferences throughout COP25, spoke on topics such as “Too Many Of Us.” “It is undeniable that humanity’s footprint is the number of us times the consumption,” he said, adding that concerns over upsetting religious people were holding back necessary discussions on how to limit the number of human beings on the planet. The Christian Bible, for example, calls on people to “be fruitful and multiply.”

But Scott does not think that is a good idea at all. Pointing to Project Drawdown, Scott suggested that “educating females” and making tax-funded “family planning” available to them would be among the top three ways to reduce CO2 emissions if combined into one package. “The topic [of population control] needs to be part of the negotiations,” he argued. “We are making tiny progress…. Our request — it should be our demand, but I’m not the one making the demand — is that the UN put it on the agenda.”

Asked about whether the UN Population Fund (UNFPA), the UN agency tasked with population control, was doing an adequate job, he responded: “I can’t comment on that because I’m not well enough informed.” According to congressional testimony, the UNFPA and Planned Parenthood have worked with Beijing on perpetrating forced abortions.

Of course, Communist China’s coercive population-control regime literally includes kidnapping pregnant women and killing their pre-born children. When asked if the regime had gone too far in its efforts, Scott did not say. “Even though China relaxed its one-child policy, it’s birth rate has not gone up the way they thought it would,” he said, hopefully, suggesting that fears about climate change were causing women not to have children.

While controversial, Scott’s efforts have been endorsed by everyone from prominent global-warming scientist James Hansen and neo-Malthusian Ehrlich to organizations such as 350.org, Friends of the Earth, and Citizens Climate Lobby, which has former Secretary of Treasury and State George P. Schultz on its advisory board. Erlich, one of Scott’s supporters, has been one of the most vocal advocates of reducing human numbers. Scott even spoke on a panel with Hansen during COP25.

This zealotry for reducing the number of people on the planet has become a common theme at UN gatherings. Earlier this year, at the 68th UN Civil Society Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah, one speaker went further than most would dare to in public. After speaking on a panel with UN Assistant Secretary-General Satya Tripathi, Global Initiative for Food Security and Ecosystem Preservation (GIFSEP) Executive Director David Michael Terungwa dropped a bombshell. “We can’t kill them all,” he said, twice, laughing.

Before that, at the COP24 in Poland last year, Al Gore trumpeted the theme. Among the solutions to the supposed “climate crisis,” Gore touted more and stricter population-control policies by government. Perhaps oblivious to the ghoulishness of his words, Gore praised the population-control regime operated by the government of India, which has been widely condemned as abusive and coercive. Showing a graph of China’s population, he also celebrated the policies of the mass-murdering dictatorship in Communist China.

However, showing a graph of Africa’s population, Gore suggested that Africans were still having far too many babies for planet Earth to sustain in the face of supposed “climate” change. Despite lip-service to the pope and Catholicism, Gore demanded, among other tactics, that contraception be made “ubiquitously available” all over the world. The goal: Help reduce the number of children, and especially Africans.

The New American asked Democrat presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, known for his desire to have Big Government disarm you and regulate everything from Big Gulps to salt content in food, for his thoughts on the population-control subject. “Thank you, have a nice day,” he responded with a strange grin. His handlers promptly rushed in — “he’s not taking interviews right now” — before his armed security, looking grumpy, whisked him away. 

Children are already being bombarded by UN propaganda at school and in official UN publications. The goal: convincing students that having babies is bad for the planet. The the 1994 UN-produced book Rescue Mission: Planet Earth : A Children’s Edition of Agenda 21, the UN’s self-styled “education” agency teaches children that “the planet groans every time it registers another birth.” And that is just the start of what critics say is the anti-human, anti-Christian, anti-freedom propaganda that has been peddled by the UN to children for decades now.

During the recent debate on a whether or not to declare a “climate emergency,” German Members of the European so-called Parliament expressed deep unease over the declaration. The reason is that the German term for emergency, der Notstand, is associated with a Nazi law adopted by Adolf Hitler’s National Socialist party to consolidate power.

The UN summit, led by international socialists such as Antonio Guterres, appears to be hoping for vast new powers to deal with this supposed “climate emergency.” And at the top of the list will be reducing the number of people on the planet, by any means that they consider necessary.
