The United Nations, an institution established for the idyllic purpose of world-building, has deviated completely from its charter declaration and founding documents. Today it is a playpen for the world’s most notorious evil regimes, where their intelligence armies build networks to destroy free societies. The truth is that since the passage of the Korean War resolution in 1950 under U.N. Security Council Resolution 83, the U.N. has all been morally downhill for its bureaucracy and for pretending to be a global government. President Biden was a most fitting figure for the venue. The thirty-three-minute speech he gave on Tuesday, September 21 was an act of weakness and prostration.
Although these encounters serve no useful purpose for sovereign republican governments, given the false equivalence rendered to dictatorships and unelected powers, world leaders like to showcase their belief systems in true campaign-style. Biden signaled out the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change as the world’s biggest challenges. “As a global community”, he said, “we’re challenged by urgent and looming crises wherein lie enormous opportunities if — if — we can summon the will and resolve to seize these opportunities,” said Biden.
COVID-19 and Climate Change, the biggest world challenges?
The stated resolve by the 46th U.S. President to “defeat COVID-19” by multilateral cooperation, which includes the material author of the pandemic, displays a submissiveness towards Communist China, that is disgraceful. Furthermore, it is a betrayal (another one) to Americans who have died from the virus. Adding insult to injury, Biden assured the other world heads of state, that the U.S. is “reengaged” with the World Health Organization. Imagine that. The very institution that covered up Beijing’s crimes and served, as both, accomplice and apologist in this exported, Chinese-made killer of over 4.5 million people.
Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels made a big deal out of pandering their version of socialism as “scientific”. Today’s left is also strategically branding its worldview as emanating from science. “We need a collective act of science and political will,” insisted the U.S. president. Yet, the science is not settled on a lot of things. It can never be “settled”, as that would be unscientific. The very nature of what constitutes the scientific method, urges a continued questioning of existing paradigms. In Kuhnian fashion, new established ones posit challenges and if triumphed, they replace and predominate. The political claims on the scientific monopolistic understanding of the facts is pseudo-science. One sees this in the reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change (formally a/k/a global warming) as well, the other major existential “crisis”, according to Biden.

Biden, an apparent science denier
“Will we meet the threat of challenging climate — the challenging climate we’re all feeling already ravaging every part of our world with extreme weather?”, denounced the American national executive officer. Again, we witness the same fanatical interpretation of selected views on “climate change”. Climate, throughout human history, has always been, in one form or another, in slow but steady change. The pressing question, which has no simple monolithic answer, is to what extent human activity is responsible for these climatic changes. Another compelling question is whether the slight variation in thermostatic temperature is worth the overall costs to American families and the nation’s standard of living.
Biden did not pass up the opportunity to market green socialism, or as congressional socialists like to call it, the Green New Deal. Considering that the Democrats’ infrastructure bill is full of eco-socialist projects, the White House occupant seems to have killed two birds with one stone with this speech. Biden reinforced his credentials with the international socialists who, in their green guises, strive to make the world more Marxist-hospitable. The other point was to promote this strategy of stifling free enterprise with the American electorate, cloaking it with the seal of approval of the global community.
The global left now controls the U.N.
With a Trojan Horse containing a left-controlled multilateralist framework, Biden told the U.N. members — which today is controlled by socialists, globalist politicians and influential non-political actors — “we’re opening a new era of relentless diplomacy.” “Relentless diplomacy” is dangerous in these times with Obama’s Democratic Party in control of the federal government.
Applying a vision of world politics based on détente was precisely what weaponized communism in the 1960s and 1970s. “To deliver for our own people,” Biden argued, “we must also engage deeply with the rest of the world.” To hear the President of the United States link America’s prosperity and freedom to a policy of engagement with a global community in which Chinese hegemony and Islamic and socialist ideological tenets permeate it, is most alarming.
In Biden’s speech there were words of concern for the persecution of religious minorities, but no mention was made of the egregious persecution of Christians, the world’s leading religion. True to the prisms of cultural Marxism, the language of identity politics and its special interests abounded. The underlying thrust of the Biden-Harris agenda violates every precept of equality before the law. Ideology and woke radicalism are the centerpiece of this administration. Biden, despite his usual lapses, made a point of clearly underscoring his anti-Americanism at the U.N.
