Reporting from Delhi: The Rebel goes “behind the globalist curtain” at the UN’s Tobacco Control Conference

Faith GoldyArchive

The Rebel team and I have landed in Delhi, India, on assignment to reveal the truth about the UN World Health Organization Tobacco Control Conference. Here, unelected statist fat cats and busybodies are meeting to decide on new ways to regulate your life and raise your taxes.

For the next few days, we'll be bringing you all the information we can about what's going on behind closed doors. 

The decisions made here and at other UN conferences affect you, your wallets and your freedoms. Only The Rebel is here to bring you the truth, without the mainstream spin.

And thanks to everyone for your support: Rebel viewers generously helped pay for our flight and other necessities, but we're still accepting donations to cover our security while we're here.

VISIT if you'd like to help crowdfund our reporting.

3 Cheers for Ms. Goldy. Publicity, including the free Press, is central to these issues- emphatically so when expenditure of public funds is occurring.

I agree with Faith that things such as tobacco and cigarettes should be up to the individual whether they want to smoke or not and should not be so heavily taxed.
It’s good to have Faith and the others there to investigate the UN. The UN that’s run by Islamic sharia dictators and communists (isn’t this the exact same thing) and they try to control everything here, take tons of our money and do absolutely nothing to help us or any other democratic nation. What a scam. All democratic nations need to get out of the UN.

Karan Singh great comment, but I always love to eat Indian food , when you get out , there is always some Pan Masala to help you digest, I guess the one you meant is the gutka which contain tobacco,

Next the Vegans nutcase at the U.N. will ban meat, no more chicken , it is so cruel to farm them.

Socialism has failed in China and Russia , they turned around and succeeded in Europe and North America, next will be electing a freekin democrats in the WH imagine 12 years of this unsupportable nanny state in a row, learn to live with it or else .

I guess Faith still smoke …?

(in front) I’d edit that but I can’t. Po one is nerfect.

Since Conservatives love bitching about their taxes I have to say I don’t want my money paying for Faith Goldy to fly all the way to Delhi India. (Yes it’s my money alone) It’s more likely she’s infront of a blue screen.

Fair Use said, " I felt like violently imposing freedom on people, and that’s just not cricket."

It is odd that so many people seem to gravitate towards enslavement of one type or another like moths to a flame, isn’t it?

Ah, yes. I’m suddenly reminded that the authoritarian-leaning Adolf Hitler was strongly opposed to both tobacco and outside interference from these sort of international interests. For the same reasons he was opposed to democracy and liberty. All with VERY good, thoughtfully explained, if counter-intuitive reasons. Like gambling, they’re addictive, attractive, and not good for you. But the point is, I’m not sure if these nanny-staters are globalisming right. The Bible also has counter-intuitive, authoritarian bits of wisdom which are never really explained fully. But having pondered and explored the issues and the sky-Daddy’s least popular prohibitions, I think I get it, now. But I have to turn in my libertarian card. It was never a good fit, anyway. I felt like violently imposing freedom on people, and that’s just not cricket.

What a useless bunch run the UN simply a pack of Totalitarian Authoritarians’ with a high compulsion to control people in reality they are the scourge to mankind that needs to be put out of Commission in the worst way! They are just asking for trouble and PM Justin Trudeau sucks right up to UN!
commented 2016-11-06 22:01:20 -0500
That’s very true Dan.
India has gone through all that & people like me have suffered, watching helplessly as our rights & freedoms were being taken away in the name of progress, development & economy.
My whole purpose of writing here is to warn & bring some awareness among my fellow Canadians that don’t get fooled by the generous & popular govt. programs they come at a price, your freedom.
During my service years while posted in a remote area I got a chance to work with WWF on their ‘Project Tiger’, which was suppose to protect the dwindling numbers of tigers in india. After 30 years & hundreds of million dollar spent the net result is india is still loosing a tiger a day. Same is going on with every wild specie.
Since last 3 years hunters like me in BC have been facing several challenges foremost being: Lumber Companies & Natives. Several prime wildlife habitats have been cordoned off by these companies who are extracting timber (including several old growth forest) at an unprecedented rate, while some other areas have been made out of bounds by native bands with no authority to do so. I personally had an ugly confrontation with one such group. BCWF has issued a warning to hunters to report any such incidence to them & BC conservation Service.
There’s no doubt that BC Liberals are in cahoots with these lumber companies and have given them a free rein over our forests, and they don’t want outsiders, people like hunters or campers, to see how they are plundering our natural resources.

KARAN SINGH commented 2 hours ago
“…Sadly, during late 70’s & early 80’s india became a hunting free zone…”

What is really scary in those words is how easily that could happen in Canada under a Globalist, dictatorial regime like the Justin-puppet’s socialist LPC, or the Angry Beard from France and his communist party, working with the UN and other NGOs as facilitators.
They’ll do it overnight, on a Friday, stroke of a pen, just like they are now taking away our gun rights, and other British Common Law rights, protections, liberties…and wealth.
All the language and groundwork in all aspects and levels of governance have been installed or are being installed, prep-work for the big ‘Leap’ from what we are now – semi-sovereign covert fascist states – to One Worlder overt fascism, with their Agenda 21/30 plans for all us useless eaters.
A lot of how that will unfold will be revealed in a day or two…the suspense is killing me!

Karan Singh that sounds pretty disgusting. And you are spot on when you say hypocrisy, they pick and choose battles very selectively.

Architect i actually wish he would follow through on that to see the look on his voters faces when they realize weed is $80 a gram when you add the taxes in.

LLOYD NOLAN commented: “Is that polluting particulate fog behind you ?”

Lloyd, this time of the year in Delhi as air is getting cooler during night the fog sets in early morning, the pollutants in the air get mixed with this fog forming smog which hangs till midday each winter. At times & at certain places making it harder even to breath.
The venue Faith is reporting from is not very far from the international airport which itself is 25 km from the city centre and use to be surrounded by open & well irrigated fields (not so anymore), although there still are some pockets of the scrub forest left in the area. The very place where this convention centre stands was my hunting ground for francolins, quails, ducks & other small game. Sadly, during late 70’s & early 80’s india became a hunting free zone, although the number of species kept going down at a faster rate than before.

Faith, welcome to the most polluted, crowded & congested (at times chaotic) city, my home town.

This convention raises a question in my mind about the collective hypocrisy of UN & indian govt. They are against tobacco products (specially cigarette) but what about their own tobacco based highly addictive home product: Pan Masala/Gutka/Khaine, which is the major cause of oral cancer in India.
If you happen to walk on the streets of Delhi (not recommended) the red stains you see on every corner & sometimes on the streets itself are from the saliva, which is spat on the ground after chewing that tobacco stimulant called ‘pan masala’. On the papers govt. has banned manufacture & sale of any such product but in reality, due to apathy & corruption in such matters, the law is seldom enforced.
Then they have their own version of cigarette called ‘beedi’, which carries a far greater risk of oral cancer than cigarette. Govt. is ineffective in curbing its use for two reasons; 1) poor people prefer this cheap product over expensive branded cigarettes. 2) these are manufactured by poor people (mostly forest dwelling tribals) and has been establishes as cottage industry helping millions of poor families (especially women).
I am not condoning the use of tobacco, I’ve never used any tobacco product in my life, but will stand for the right of every person & business who chooses to at his/her own risk. All governments, as hypocritical as they are, have no right to target some business while overlooking the others only because some are deemed soft (with scant votes) while others have a majority (thus carry vast votes). Governments, worldwide, have been ineffectual in curbing the use of drugs, which carries a far more risk to humans & our society, so now they’ve to found a scapegoat in cigarette industry to keep the proles busy in thinking that govt. is doing something for their well being.

While in Delhi, Faith if you & your team ever needs any help let me know I still have good contacts there & can pull few strings to get the work done. Sorry, but that’s the way that country moves.
Also, if you get a chance from your busy schedule visit my parents who lives on a farm not very far (less than 10 km) from where you are reporting (Vasant Kunj), they’ll be more than happy to receive you. My father, an ex-colonel, is a nice & helpful person and my mother is very welcoming to strangers.

Stay safe , it’s going to be one hell of a REBEL newesy week , what with the election and the REBEL covering the un like it’s never been covered

Tax revenue is the only thing JT had on his mind when he said he’d legalize weed.
commented 2016-11-06 15:36:12 -0500
Notice they don’t ban tobacco altogether because they want the tax revenue. Next, it will be food.
