Is it time for a global Tea Party?
The global bureaucrats at the UN have wasted a lot of money. The fraud and corruption of that agency are legendary. That does not even mention the history of UN blue helmets going to third world nations and raping the population.
Now, they want to rape the western world.
From Fox News:
A 1 percent tax on billionaires around the world. A tax on all currency trading in the U.S. dollar, the euro, the Japanese yen and the British pound sterling. Another “tiny” tax on all financial transactions, including stock and bond trading, and trading in financial derivatives. New taxes on carbon emissions and on airline tickets. A royalty on all undersea mineral resources extracted more than 100 miles offshore of any nation’s territory.
The United Nations is at it again: finding new and “innovative” ways to create global taxes that would transfer hundreds of billions, and even trillions, of dollars from the rich nations of the world — especially the U.S. — to poorer ones, in line with U.N.-directed economic, social and environmental development.
These latest global tax proposals have received various forms of endorsement at U.N. meetings over the spring and summer, and will be entered into the record during the 67th U.N. General Assembly session, which began this week. The agenda for the entire session, lasting through December, is scheduled to be finalized on Friday.
How to convince developed countries wracked by economic recession and spiraling levels of government debt – especially the U.S. — is another issue, which the world organization may well end up trying to finesse.
As the U.N. itself notes, in a major report on the taxation topic titled, “In Search of New Development Finance” -- the main topic at a high-level international meeting of the U.N.’s Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) this summer -- “These proposals are subject to political controversy. For instance, many countries are not willing to support international forms of taxation, as these are said to undermine national sovereignty.”
The world organization, and its constellation of funds, agencies and programs, has been pushing “innovative financing” for nearly a decade.
The U.N. clearly hopes it can find a way to move ahead. “ Politically, tapping revenue from global resources and raising taxes internationally to address global problems are much more difficult than taxing for purely domestic purposes,” admits an ECOSOC document produced last April. But, it summarizes, “the time has come to confront the challenge.”
Shortly thereafter, the tax proposals — known in U.N.-speak as “innovative methods of financing”-- got a limited endorsement from a group of government ministers and other heads of national delegations who attended a major ECOSOC meeting in New York City in July.
The global taxation idea was echoed this week by Jeffrey Sachs, head of Columbia University’s Earth Institute and also a U.N. Assistant Secretary General. Sachs was recently named by U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to head a new intellectual lobbying group of experts called the Sustainable Development Solutions Network. It “will work closely with United Nations agencies, multilateral financing institutions and other international organizations,” according to the Earth Institute website.
On Monday, the controversial economist, a vociferous supporter of the Occupy Wall Street movement, called on President Obama to implement a carbon tax that in turn could be used to finance bonds, paying for investments to combat “climate change” -- one of the major focuses of the new solutions network.
Can someone tell me what good the United Nations is? I can’t think of anything worthwhile they do for America.
Of course Barack Obama and the Party of Treason love the UN. Unfortunately Mitt Romney shows no inclination to do what needs to be done.
The United Nations is the gift to America from former Soviet spy Alger Hiss. Since he was actively spying for the Soviet Union at the time and wanted to see Communism triumph, does anyone think he set the UN up with the best interests of America at heart?
The United States gets nothing from the UN except a large bill. Every year we are forced foot the bill so that tyrants and lunatics from around the world can come to New York City and denounce America.
There is one simple solution to this idiocy. Tell the UN to get the hell out of America and get America out of the UN.
My understanding is "A Global Tea Party" is what Glenn Beck has been about doing for the past year !
Might be a good idea, even if Beck is for it..
music to my ears!
I am with you. It is pass time to turn them out of our country. We pay for the largest part of their bills and we get nothing but them wanting to take over our country. I say it is time that Soros take his UN and get the H--- out of our country. GOD BLESS AMERICA
Yes, I'd love it if the UN would leave. I just don't know how we could get the US government to support this, especially if (don't hit me) Obama is re-elected. That gives me nightmares. He would love to see a global tax. That would put us on the same level as the rest of the world. He really hates America and his goal is to have the US knocked down.
Alger Hiss(Communist Spy) set up the UN (1945 in San Francisco) for one purpose. to be a Trojan Horse for the Soviet Conspiracy where the U.S. could easily be out voted by a myriad of countries that hate America
the other main purpose was to allow easy access for hundreds of Diplomatic Immunity spies to enter freely to New York City
Wow, I didn't know that!
Makes perfectly good sense for a global Tea Party. We need to get rid of the UN and government officials who can't effectively deal with problems. Those who don't realize the good ole days have long sinced past are in control in too many places.
The UN was a good idea, 7 decades ago.
Giving nearly equal powers to all countries made some sense as well. Even funding most of it...the poor countries could not afford their "fair" share!
The UN has fallen under the control of rogue nations, despots and so on, intent upon profiting from our largess.
After nearly a century, it is now time for the UN to make it's own way. Cut it loose, kick it out of New York.. We cannot afford it easily, nor does it represent our values. Time to get out, me thinks!
Vern, I couldn't agree more. Kick out the UN, I do not want any other country to have any power over us.
The UN, labor unions, the EU, progressive policy; all absolete or not-feasible ideas. All gotta go!
