UN Goals Unveiled: Building Inclusive Communities Through Education
The United Nations will be holding a conference in Utah at the end of this month, with a variety of what they call "Thematic Sessions" to be held. These are meetings designed to promote the UN's goals, each one focused around a specific theme, but also intertwined with other UN goals, as you will see. There is also a strong focus on youth for this conference, and the reason for that will also become apparent. The first we will be addressing is entitled, "Building Inclusive Communities Through Education." Here is the official description, taken from their website: “"The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) call for ensuring equal access for all women and men to affordable and quality technical, vocational and tertiary education, including university. Rapid technological changes present opportunities and challenges, but the learning environment, the capacities of teachers and the quality of education have in many parts of the world not kept pace, and in others still need to catch up. New models in higher education are emerging as lawmakers and higher education professionals look for ways to address declining enrollment numbers, lack of diversity and skyrocketing tuition, as well as knowledge gaps in today’s rapidly evolving global workforce. Access for all to a quality education and learning opportunities – starting with children - will play a central role in increasing the number of youth and adults who have relevant skills, including technical and vocational skills, for employment, decent jobs and entrepreneurship to meet today’s global and local challenges."” The UN's language is always loaded with meaning and hidden context that is intended to go over the head of the casual listener or reader. One of the most basic underlying principles we see in language from the United Nations is the promotion of Socialism, which is present here in the very first sentence. Notice the keywords "equal access" and "all men and women." These are fun buzzwords right now that appeal to the desire to be "fair" and promote "equality." But how would this be possible without forcing those who "have" to pay for those who "have not"? Who gets to define those terms? How would it be enforced? As the UN has focused its goals on the entire world, only a world government could provide the necessary enforcement. How do we know that world collectivism is the goal of the UN? For starters, most of the countries in the UN have some form of Socialist government, which shows that this is the mindset they hold. They would not want for the world anything different than what they already provide for their own people. The UN also already has in place several schemes to redistribute the wealth of the world from so-called "wealthy" nations to those with less. The redistribution of wealth is a hallmark of Socialism, the goal being that all people are equal in poverty, with the government in control of the wealth and resources. Think Venezuela, China, North Korea, the Soviet Union, Cuba. Sound fun? In contrast, the equality of all mankind declared under the Constitution is that each one is born with a clean slate, able to make of his life what he will. Not an equality of things, but an equality of promise to be shaped by a person's choices. Are some nations more prosperous than others? Absolutely, and the current modus operandi is to try to make other nations feel guilty for their own successes, as if it were their fault somehow. Yet, those circumstances, in most cases, came about as a natural result of the choices of the people. No one holds responsibility for their choices but themselves. Of course, we can voluntarily provide assistance, as many do. There are doctors and dentists who provide free services. There are people inventing new ways to drill wells, grow crops more effectively, etc. Missionaries teaching English, and helping in myriad other ways. All of these people working of their own accord, providing helpful service by choice, with no threat of government violence required. A few of the UN's other overarching themes are also present here. We see the assertion that "declining enrollment numbers" at "higher education" institutions (ie, colleges) is somehow a threat that must be addressed. What are these people doing instead? Staying home and watching TV? Perhaps a few, but the rest are learning trades, writing books, getting degrees in Computer Science or programming, teaching dance, making neon signs, and a whole host of other things that can be done elsewhere. College is not the only option. We must also ask ourselves why people would be opting to avoid college. Could it be that there are so many other options that don't require one to start adult life tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt? Could it be that colleges have turned into horrendous indoctrination centers where students can get degrees in things like porn? Where Conservatism and religion are no longer welcome? Where free speech is proclaimed, and simultaneously denied? Could it be that the best students no longer are able to even get into many colleges due to ridiculous "diversity" policies that favor non-academic qualities, such as skin color or sexuality? On that note, you will notice that "lack of diversity" is thrown in there with all these other "atrocities," as though it is something of importance. This is done for several reasons. One is that the UN is anti-Christian. The deliberate promotion of diversity of sexuality, and the promotion of non-Christian religions, while at the same time declaring war on monogamy and Christianity, sends a clear signal. We must remember, however, that when all things are "true," nothing is true. And that is the point. Championing diversity also creates victims out of those in smaller groups, who clamor to government for "protection," and the government is all too happy to take away everyone's rights and freedoms in order to do so. This is at the core of the UN's "inclusive communities." Remember when you were free to choose who you associated with? Now, you'd better bake the cake, rent your house, and install a ramp of a certain length, size, color, and slope, or the government will step on your neck, steal your property, or imprison you, all in the name of diversity. There are UN goals to usurp your freedoms in the name of every so-called "marginalized" group that exists. The drive-by phrase "knowledge gaps in today’s rapidly evolving global workforce" suggests that there is a group of overseers looking to take your children and plug them into a prefabricated system, like so many cogs. Some places here in the United States, like California, have already embraced this system, and have implemented government-business partnerships that craft a child's education to meet the specific projected needs of their workforce. Is this what people send their children to school for? If they called each graduating class by its intended purpose, would they feel any different? "We'd like to congratulate the Boeing assembly line class of 2019!" This is the UN's goal for your children. The importance of public education in Socialist systems cannot be denied. It is even a plank of the Communist Manifesto. When the government chooses which kids learn, what they learn, and how they learn, what else is left? Can it be said that a free thought ever crossed a child's mind in such a system? This system not only tells kids how to think, it tells them what to think. "We've always been at war with Eastasia." Haven't we? Hardcore Socialists have always sought to remove all threats to the state, any who might challenge their authority, and this has historically pinpointed religion and the family as the foremost threats. The UN call for "a quality education and learning opportunities – starting with children" nicely frames their desire to remove children from their homes and put them into government schools where they can be indoctrinated. The push is to get kids out of the home as early as possible. This is already happening here in America, with preschools and even pre-preschools opening all over. The UN also has an ongoing agenda to set children up as adversaries against their parents and other adults, by telling them that it is unfair for adults to run things, for adults to get all the jobs, for only adults to vote. Why is this a priority for the UN? Remember when, during the 60's, the mantra of the Communists was "Don't trust anyone over 30"? Youth are ignorant and impressionable. Not ignorant as in stupid, but as in miseducated and inexperienced. They can be emotionally manipulated easily. They are, in actual Communist terminology, "useful idiots" who will work hard to bring about their own downfall, all the while thinking they are doing the world a service. A young man I know, just out of high school, actually posted on Facebook not long ago that "[he] would die for Agenda 21!" Mission accomplished. As you read the subject matter tags the UN was so good to include with this description, see if you can pair the phrases with their descriptions above: “"Join this session if you are interested in: the role of universities, communities and vocational institutes; continuing education; children in urban settings; access for marginalized students and communities; opportunities for youth; education in vulnerable settings; gender; technology for education."” We don't have the time or space to touch on everything in this short blurb, but we hope this was enough to get you thinking. Everything about the UN, from its agendas to its existence, is anti-American and unConstitutional! Instead of turning our children over to unaccountable globalists, why don't we teach them what is in the Constitution… and then go back to following it!
UN Goals Unveiled: Peaceful Societies–Recovering from Conflict and Nurturing Peace
Do people notice hypocrisy any more? When, for instance, millionaire Bernie Sanders trots around the world in his private jet pimping Socialism and chastising the rest of us for causing climate change… does anyone bat an eye? Ditto for Al Gore and many others. What's missing is critical thinking, a skill no longer taught in government indoctrination centers. What they do teach under that name is a form of "social justice" thinking and "values clarification" that is nothing more than humanistic brainwashing. In today's article we will learn about peace, love, and respect from the UN. What could go wrong? “"Peace is necessary for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and is a specific goal in itself. This session will focus on the interface between peace, justice and strong institutions (SDG 16) and Safe, Resilient, Sustainable Cities and Communities (SDG 11).The last decade has been marked by increasing skepticism regarding the viability and effectiveness of multilateral approaches to peacebuilding. The Peaceful Societies Thematic Session will discuss how civil society organizations are integrating objective measures to achieve an inclusive and sustainable culture of peaceful coexistence in their local activities while respecting the integrity of nation states’ sovereign rights. Attend this thematic session if you are interested in: Human rights, Gender-based violence, Human trafficking, Family valued [sic], community building and inter-cultural understanding through arts and sports, Refugees and migrants, Arms flows, Access to information, Corruption"” Buzz Buzz Buzz Once again, we must separate fact from fiction, and rhetoric from reality. In this Thematic Session description, as in all the others, fine language and emotional buzzwords are used to appeal to the non-critical thinker. But that's not us. Let's take this thing apart, shall we? Let's start with the overall goal. The UN claims to be able to do something that has never been done in the history of the earth: bring peace to the world. On a similar note, here in Idaho we have signs all along the highway, with a picture of a seatbelt, proclaiming the slogan "Towards Zero Deaths." When I first saw these, I mentioned to my wife that "zero deaths" sounds like such a noble goal, but it is completely impossible without taking away our freedoms, because there is no freedom without risk! Likewise, there can never be absolute peace in the world without brainwashing a la 1984, and/or an absolute dictatorship that has removed all freedoms. This is the "peace" promised by Communism. Real world examples include China, North Korea, the Soviet Union, Vietnam, and Cuba. You murder everyone who could theoretically pose a threat, and then keep everyone else under your boot. Hooray for peace! The Definition Of A Nation In this description, they also complain about "increasing skepticism regarding the viability and effectiveness of multilateral approaches to peacebuilding." Multilateral, according to my dictionary, is defined as something "agreed upon or participated in by three or more parties, especially the governments of different countries". To understand why this is a concern, we must understand what a country is. At its most basic, we could use the definition espoused by radio host Michael Savage, who says that a country is defined by its "borders, language, and culture." This makes sense because at some point in time a group of people claimed an area of land, ie, established borders, in order to have a distinct culture. Over time their language became distinct, as well. And so you have a country. "We will no longer be governed by you," they said to their country of origin. "We will govern ourselves, instead!" This makes sense, as well, because a group only has the right to govern themselves, not anyone else. Each country has distinct borders, language, and culture, so their laws makes sense to them, but people in other areas may not understand why things are the way they are. They want to have things a different way. That's fine. Everyone should have the right to choose their own laws and leaders. Of course, many countries have NOT chosen their laws or leaders, but have instead had these things forced upon them, and this includes most of the countries in the United Nations. The same ones that want to "multilaterally" approach "peacebuilding." Now do you see the problem? If everyone minded their own business, we would all be much happier. “"Nothing in the Constitution nor in logic grants to the President of the United States or to Congress the power to influence the political life of other countries, to “uplift” their cultures, to bolster their economies, to feed their peoples or even to defend them against their enemies. This point was made clear by the wise father of our country, George Washington: "I have always given it as my decided opinion that no nation has a right to intermeddle in the internal concerns of another; that every one had a right to form and adopt whatever government they liked best to live under them selves; and that if this country could, consistent with its engagements, maintain a strict neutrality and thereby preserve peace, it was bound to do so by motives of policy, interest, and every other consideration."" –Excerpt from United States Foreign Policy, by Ezra Taft Benson” I'm looking at you, America! A TSA/CPS Agent's Dream Job Of course, the United Nations also meddles everywhere, and that's just one point of irony. The other is that this Thematic Session is supposedly devoted to "Recovering from Conflict and Nurturing Peace" while the UN is anything but neutral when there is a conflict, and they bring anything but peace to the areas they infest! Taking another page out of 1984, the UN troops are referred to as "peacekeepers." But did you know that there is horrendous and widespread sexual abuse of women and children whenever they bring their "peace" into town? Here is an article from 2006 on the UN's own website, one from 2016 specifically mentioning "child rape" and discussing the 99 "allegations" from the year before (2015), and one from 2017 that points out that the "145 cases of [reported] sexual exploitation and abuse involving peacekeepers in 2016" came from "across all UN staff, not just peacekeepers." Well, that's comforting. This article, also from 2017, discusses many specific incidents, including "When at least 134 Sri Lankan peacekeepers were implicated in a child sex ring." This 2018 article informs us that "Few UN personnel have faced jail (the current number stands at 30), with even fewer being fined, demoted or removed from office." Makes you feel all warm and fuzzy. This is apparently how the UN "nurtures peace" in areas that are "recovering from conflict." Did I mention that we are talking about THE RAPE OF WOMEN AND CHILDREN? Just wanted to throw that out there, as you ponder how seriously this is being taken by the UN. The articles linked to above are not exclusive, and this issue unfortunately did not begin in 2006. This Human Rights Watch article from 2016 is the first of these to mention that "Exploitation and abuse by UN peacekeepers and personnel has been reported since the 1990s." From the first 2017 article, above, we learn: “"The international body has also been accused of burying cases and failing to act promptly or transparently to incidents perpetrated by its troops."” Well, duh! It's the same problem with police in America, or the KGB in the Soviet Union! They see themselves as the top of the food chain! Who's going to stop them, other cops? Ha! Safeguarding Our Future We've all heard that "when the wicked rule the people mourn," (D&C 98:9, Prov. 29:2), but what should be of greater concern to us is the warning in the Book of Mormon that "ye cannot dethrone an iniquitous king save it be through much contention, and the shedding of much blood." (Mosiah 29:21) Who will you turn to when you are abused by a tyrannical world government? Where will you go? "The shedding of much blood," indeed. Oh, and in case you were wondering, "An AP investigation earlier this year found around 2,000 allegations of sexual exploitation and abuse have been registered between 2005-2017." So there's really no reason people should be concerned about UN involvement in their area, is there? Notice that this number does not include anything from the 1990's up to 2005, nor explain why. We'll leave that to your imagination. Usurpation Of Delegated Authority Because a nation's borders keep their people safe, they are one of the top concerns of that nation's government. In America, this is one of the few Constitutional powers of the federal government–to protect our shared borders. Why would a nation care about the security of another nation's borders? It has nothing to do with them, especially when "protecting borders" means sending your own men and women to die. Yet, "The United Nations Charter gives the United Nations Security Council the power and responsibility to take collective action to maintain international peace and security." (United Nations peacekeeping", Wikipedia) This is the sovereign right of a nation, remember? If the UN was not already a de facto world government, why would they be involved? And why would nations let them? Yes, our birthright has been sold, America, and unfortunately we aren't the only ones. By now you should have a pretty good idea of the utter absurdity and hypocrisy of the United Nations condescending to tell the world how it might "have peace" and "recover from conflicts." As the John Birch Society has long urged, it's time to "Get the UN out of the US and get the US out of the UN!" We have a Constitution so that we can govern ourselves. UPDATE (2019-08-21): Please listen to the Defending Utah episode above! Ben touches on many other reasons the UN is not an entity of peace!
Idaho Legislative Watch 2021-02-08
This weekend, Sen. Regina Bayer shared some information on bills that were passed by the Senate last week. Most of these show great cause for alarm! Not only because they were passed in a state that claims to be majority "Conservatives" and "Republicans," but because they need to be opposed! Please inform yourselves on these bills, and then reach out to everyone in the House, asking them to oppose these bills! The text following the bill numbers is Senator Bayer's, immediately followed by our commentary. We have included links to pages where you can read the proposed text of the bills, and see who supported them. “S1006: This legislation would consolidate current statutory requirements for literacy intervention and update provisions in alignment with the Task Force recommendation for focusing on the importance of having every student reading at grade level by the end of grade 3. The bill passed the Senate with a vote of 35-0-0 and was referred to the House Education Committee. ” This is a "bleeding heart" law that sounds good on its face, but lays the groundwork for future failure. No two children are alike, and we all have different strengths and weaknesses. We learn at different times and paces. As we saw with "No Child Left Behind," what bills like this is do to force schools to lower educational standards once it becomes obvious that some children will not meet existing standards, because their federal funding will be on the line. “S1027: This legislation would compensate individuals who were wrongfully convicted and imprisoned with $62,000 per year of incarceration or $75,000 per year if incarcerated on death row. Those who were put on the sex offender registry wrongfully would receive an additional $25,000 per year on the registry. Exonerees would be given a two-year window to file a claim from the moment they were formally exonerated by a court. The bill passed the Senate with a vote of 35-0-0 and was referred to the House. ” It is horrific to think of wrongful convictions, and the havoc it wreaks on a person's livelihood. Their future employment may be affected because they have a conviction on their record, they've lost the ability to be with their families, they have been socially ostracized (particularly in the case of a wrongful sex offender conviction), and so forth. They definitely deserve assistance to help get their lives back on track. Our issue here is that the general citizen of Idaho will pay those bills, when they were not responsible for the wrongful convictions. Remember, there is no such thing as "the state." It is all you. The proper solution, then, is to gather funds charitably, ie, from those who willingly choose and are able to do so. We do believe, however, that there should be punishment considered for those who wrongfully accused them. "Thou shalt not bear false witness." “S1039: This bill would allow school districts to award a Workplace Readiness Diploma to graduates who have completed career technical education programs. The bill passed out of the Senate Education Committee with a Do Pass Recommendation and is filed for its Third Reading."” Of the bills presented here, this one is the cause for greatest concern, as it advances the tenth plank of the Communist Manifesto! Be aware that this bill only supports an existing program that itself advances this agenda, which is that education be used to prepare children for specific future needs of industries. In effect, this means the education your children receive in public school is crafted to meet specific future needs of businesses, instead of teaching them to think for themselves. This is already in effect across the nation, with so-called "School to Work" initiatives, and can be seen in its ultimate form in totalitarian states like China and North Korea, where children have no choice in their future vocations, and receive only the education that will prepare them for their state-appointed employment. Call To Action: Once again, we urge you to contact everyone in the House, and ask them to oppose the bills mentioned above! Further Action: We can't be everywhere at once, nor can we read every bill and understand all that it entails. Please visit this page on legislature.idaho.gov, and look through the bills. Contact us if you see cause for concern, so we can sound the alarm!
