UN, Socialist International, Obama: Design U.S. Refugee Resettlement: Radicals Running the UNHCR and U.S. State Department Plan a Migration Tidal Wave

Article excerpt

The Obama administration's recent announcement of the intention to bring thousands (and perhaps tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands) of unvetted Syrian refugees for resettlement throughout the United States was not a sudden, spur-of-the-moment decision. It was the result of a multi-year, internationalist push to implement the United Nations High Commission for Refugees' (UNHCR) "Transformative Agenda." That not-so-hidden agenda aims at transforming Europe and America into chaotic, Balkanized regions afflicted with ethnic and religious strife, social turmoil, and terrorism by surging masses of Muslim migrants into the European Union and the United States.

The UNHCR Transformative Agenda also aims at vastly boosting the funding for UN agencies and increasing UN authority over entire regions of the world beset with refugee crises--many of which are the result of wars and "peacekeeping" operations conducted jointly by the United States and the UN.

UN High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres and United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) executive director Anthony Lake are the UN point men working closely with the Obama State Department. The active leadership of both these individuals in the U.S. and EU refugee policies is cause for alarm. Even more alarming is the fact that they are not the only troubling participants; the ranks of the UN officials involved in formulating refugee "solutions" are filled with persons--including from Communist China--who have neither the interests of the refugees nor the security concerns of the West in mind. Guterres is the former Socialist Party prime minister of Portugal and former president of the European Council. Perhaps most notably, he was, from 1999-2005, president of the Socialist International, the radical Marxist organization that includes many "former" communist parties that have re-branded themselves as "socialist" or "social democrat"--without significantly changing their politics or personnel.

Although virtually unknown to most Americans, the Socialist International (SI) has been exerting enormous political influence worldwide since the 1950s, especially through its dominant influence at the United Nations.

"Ultimate Objective ... Nothing Less Than World Government"

The Socialist International membership includes more than 160 socialist parties from more than 100 countries, including from 54 nations where SI member parties are currently running the show or sharing power in a coalition government. At its 1962 Congress in Oslo, Norway, the Socialist International candidly proclaimed: "The ultimate objective of the parties of the Socialist International is nothing less than world government.... Membership of the United Nations must be made universal." The SI has never deviated from that objective, and has used its growing influence to push greater empowerment of the UN and its agencies, to the point that the UN is now on the brink of becoming a world government.

On September 14, the SI and its parties weighed in on the growing refugee crisis in Europe, launching a global appeal for the EU to accept "the continuing flow of refugees and asylum seekers fleeing conflict zones."

"The Socialist International calls on the EU to reach a speedy agreement on a fair and humane plan for accommodating the continuing flow of refugees and asylum seekers fleeing conflict zones," the organization declared in a press statement. "While it is important to recognise that this is an issue of global dimension and requires that countries from all continents assume their fair share of responsibility," the statement continued, "it is crucial for Europe today to act in line with the values, the spirit of solidarity and of common progress upon which the EU was founded with the participation of our movement, and in keeping with its moral and legal obligations."

Like Guterres, many former SI officials now occupy (or have occupied) top slots amid the UN's burgeoning bureaucracy. …
