Former UN Official blasts the United Nations, explains how it's more corrupt than you ever imagined

StaffRebel Columnist

In a scathing article in the New York Times, a former United Nations assistant secretary general for field support has ripped the UN to shreds.

Here are just five must-read quotes from Anthony Banbury's column.

“During the Ebola epidemic... I was told that a staff member working in South Sudan could not travel to our headquarters in Accra, Ghana, until she received a new medical clearance. We were fighting a disease that killed many thousands and risked spinning out of control and yet we spent weeks waiting for a healthy colleague to get her forms processed.”

“Peacekeeping forces often lumber along for years without clear goals or exit plans, crowding out governments, diverting attention from deeper socioeconomic problems and costing billions of dollars.”

“In early 2013, the United Nations decided to send 10,000 soldiers and police officers to Mali in response to a terrorist takeover... Inexplicably, we sent a force that was unprepared for counterterrorism and explicitly told not to engage in it. More than 80 percent of the force’s resources are spent on logistics and self-protection.”

“When we took over peacekeeping responsibilities from the African Union there in 2014, we had the choice of which troops to accept. Without appropriate debate... a decision was made to include soldiers from the Democratic Republic of Congo and from the Republic of Congo, despite reports of serious human rights violations by these soldiers.”

“ first job with the United Nations was as a human rights officer in Cambodian refugee camps along the Thai-Cambodian border, investigating rapes and murders of the poor and helpless. Never could I have imagined that I would one day have to deal with members of my own organization committing the same crimes or, worse, senior officials tolerating them for reasons of cynical expediency.”

Lucis Trust – The Spiritual Foundation of the
United Nations
The Lucis Trust is the Publishing House which prints and disseminates United Nations material. It is a devastating indictment of the New Age and Pagan nature of the UN.
Lucis Trust was established in 1922 as Lucifer Trust by Alice Bailey as the publishing company to disseminate the books of Bailey and Blavatsky and the Theosophical Society. The title page of Alice
Bailey’s book, ‘Initiation, Human and Solar’ was originally printed in 1922, and clearly shows the publishing house as ‘Lucifer Publishing CoIn 1923.’ At one time, the Lucis Trust office in New
York was located at 666 United Nations Plaza and is a member of the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations under a slick program called “World Goodwill”.
In an Alice Bailey book called “Education for a New Age”; she suggests that in the new age “World Citizenship should be the goal of the enlightened, with a world federation and a world
brain.” In other words – a One World Government New World Order. -
-- Just in case you are not aware of who their real “Leader” is, think … LUCIFER.

This is something that anyone with a brain could have figured out years and years ago. The U.N. is in fact probably the most inbred organization the world has ever seen. Try and find out who appoints who and under what criteria and what credentials the individual being appointed holds. Try and find out the pay scale from the top down and who decided that pay scale and what was it based on. One could go on and on, to no practical end. The U.N. is a cancer oni the finances of the world and is accountable to no one and is not required to clearly demonstrate where the funding it receives goes. Even Al Capone could not have come up with a better racket.

When I was a young man I believed in the United Nations but never held the belief that it would become the evil entity it has become. Time to end it before it corrupts all the good that should have been done.

UN is not what they were created for!

The UN is a good idea. But like all good ideas, it has to withstand the test of the human factor. The human factor can lead to great heights and achievements, but it can also lead to incompetence and corruption. No organization is immune from this, and all organizations will suffer outbreaks of the negatives from time to time…how that organization deals with it, and how capable they are of clearing up the outbreaks tells you how healthy that organization is.

The UN is very, very sick. It has been for a long time. It accomplished much good, but that good is rapidly being overshadowed by rapidly building incompetence and corruption. It is stretching beyond what it was intended to be, and in doing so becoming ever more vulnerable to those two negatives, and ever more unlikely of ever being able to turn back.

I have been preaching the same since I did my very first Canadian military liaison tour with the UN in the middle east.

I also always post this when the UN comes up for discussion – it is vital Canadians know this and tell ALL their friends.

Most people are shocked when they see it:

The UN has 193 members. Of those 193 members only 20 are classified as true democracies . The rest are broken into failed or fragile democracies, brutal theocracies, corrupt royalties and tinpot dictatorships. The Middle East alone has a voting block of 40 votes who doing nothing other than produce a weekly denouncement of Israel . the only democracy in the area. The sickening part of the UN is that is considers countries like Iran,Zimbabwe,North Korea , Syria , etc to have the same voting influence as countries like Canada, Australia, Norway, New Zealand, Sweden, etc. Bashar Al Assad, head of Syria is responsible for the worst human crisis the world has seen since WW2 yet his representatives are as welcome as those western countries who pay the lion’s share of the UN’s bills. Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe is equally a criminal yet he is fawned over at the UN as well.
The 20 democracies should unilaterally pull out and establish a democratic organization of its own and kick the UN to the curb telling them to go set up shop in country that represents it’s values like Russia.
It best before date has long past and it stinks to high heaven . Sadly Prime Minister Kardashian will fit right in with the rest of the morally corrupt intellectually lightweight cabal that inhabits that sewer.

UN is responsible for most of the BS that is happening World wide, including the Middle East and Migration, they had their sticky fingers into the election of JT and his gang, they also control the gangsters that run the EU. They are Marxist and make the Mafia look like Choir Boys.

All western Countries should pull out of this crooked organization. Agreement could be made between countries like The UK, America Canada, Australia and so on. Countries that are compatible and agree that we do not need Muslims.

One of the many problems with the UN is that it is a perpetual government with no opposition to keep it in-check….

As stated in the article, when the United Nations was “born” there were such high hopes for it in the world. However, perhaps it has outlived its “best before” date! It seems to be in its last death throes.
