The UN Cannot Be Trusted With Migration Policy

The UN Cannot Be Trusted With Migration Policy

November, 2015. Having crossed from Austria into Germany, migrants make for the Bavarian village of Simbach, where they are registered by the German police

logo_caesarThe UN Pact on Migration. For those who still believe in the hallucinatory ideal of World Government, and there are many, the UN is only doing its job: attempting to accumulate power for itself by relieving European nations, under hypnosis, of what little remains of their sovereignty. The UN’s little brother in Brussels does the same. It is not necessary to be fooled by this. All one has to do is to assemble the past utterances of various UN luminaries into a coherent Mein Kampf. To take only one of the most egregious examples (as previously reported in this journal ), here is the late Peter Sutherland, then (June 2012) non-executive chairman of Goldman Sachs International and UN Special Representative for International Migration: “We [Europeans] still nurse a sense of our homogeneity and difference from others. And that’s precisely what the European Union […] should be doing its best to undermine”European populism is all that now stands between the European peoples and the loss of their individual cultures and shared Civilization. The UN Pact on Global Migration (see Objectives) is a document crafted against Europe, with the encouragement of those twin hovering angels, le couple franco-allemand, Macron and Merkel.

There is clearly a strong sense amongst Western nations that this “Pact” is a bottle marked “Poison”. The question is simply one of trust.

It would come as no surprise to discover that delegations from the push-countries were falling over each other to sign up to the Pact, while those from the pull-countries of Europe, the United States and Australia, were indeed already backing out: including Austria, which negotiated the Pact on behalf of the EU. The European review website, Politico.eu quotes () the senior UN official overseeing the Pact (Louise Arbour) as saying, “The initiative was launched at the request of Europe after the migration surge of 2015 […]”. At the request of Europe? Read, no doubt, “Juncker & Merkel”.

Wikipedia states that the Pact will be “politically binding”, although not “formally binding under international law”, since it is not a treaty. Nevertheless, there is clearly a strong sense amongst Western nations that this “Pact” is a bottle marked “Poison”. The question is simply one of trust.

«Notre démocratie est gangrenée par l’idéologie progressiste»
“Our democracy is corrupted by the progressivist ideology”
FIGAROVOX/EXTENDED INTERVIEW, 23rd November 2018.

Multiculturalism as Performance Art

Multiculturalism as Performance Art

In this article from 2016, Le Figaro publishes excerpts from Le Multiculturalisme Comme Religion Politique (Multiculturalism as a Political Religion) by the Canadian sociologist Mathieu Bock-Côté, who wonderfully evokes the contemporary West as a collection of fictional performances, each with its own multicultural channel-surfing sociology.

LE FIGARO/ANALYSIS, 19th November 2018.
The Yellow Vests movement, more than just a popular uprising, is a new symptom of the revolt of whole populations against the globalized society — a revolt that cuts across all Western democracies.
