Trudeau announces Canada to seek UN Security Council seat. Here’s why the cost is too high

Brian LilleyArchive

Justin Trudeau and half his cabinet went to New York to formally announce Canada’s intention to return to the UN Security Council table.  

In fine drama teacher fashion, Trudeau boasted, “it’s time for Canada to step up . . once again”.

He sounds pretty convinced that he’s doing a great and momentous thing but it’s important to look beyond the idealized view many have of the UN Security Council and instead look at reality, which will show that they consistently fail to live up to their mandate.

I share a list of the ways they’ve failed, one that I quickly rattled off the top of my head and I’m sure there’s more that could be unearthed.

What we do know shows that the UN has become nothing more than a debating society where there’s lots of talk and no action. It has been ineffectual for a long time but what’s even worse, in order for Canada to actually win that seat, it will cost us a fortune in bribes.

Don’t believe me? I set out examples of the wining and dining of delegates that many nations, including Canada, have undertaken in their bids for a seat.

Given the UN’s poor record of accomplishment, I ask, is it really worth it?

I’m aghast that there people out there in Canada who think the United nations stands for anything decent! The best work being done in the world regarding international aid and peace and development is NOT the UN by any means.m It is the countless charities and church groups with their professionals-without-borders and missionaries. It is the hundreds of millions of dollars each year channeled from private pockets to the places where it is needed. Given the proper chance, individual people choose to contribute where they feel the need to. Governments simply take and give for strictly political agendas. The UN is the biggest political engine on the planet with a huge socialist engineering plan for the human race. Following Lord Acton’s proverb, it is the most corrupt organization out there. Very much evil through and through now.

An astute comparison Brian from the UN to FIFA and the IOC. How is it that the UN is the only one of the three that has never had any officials under indictment?

The other despots sitting in the UN will certainly be very impressed that Justin was able to pay the state funded broadcaster (CBC) 150 million taxpayer dollars to buy off their complicity and bias not only during the election but for the next 4 years. To pull off that kind of naked multi million dollar bribery in a supposed free democracy with rule of law is a coup that will set tongues wagging in the dictator love in lounge for sure. If I were Torstar, Bell Media or any of the other left wing media conglomerates I’d be asking for my cheque…knowing Justin I’m sure its in the mail.

The UN is the most useless organization on the Planet !
Rum by despots and diktators . . . Trudough’s kind of people I suspect!

Canada is finally on the right track.

Ronny, yeah we are on the track to the edge of the cliff. Who is going to save your ass then Ronny? Your Liberal buddies are going to be running for their lives. Think about it.

This seat was likely dangled for junior to jump at, and will be just another way for dumb-dumb to insult to our PM Harper. I think junior will be bending over a lot for his terrorist masters, in order to provide the UN with an insulting photo op for Canadians. PM Harper was a real leader, and knew how to slap the UN silly. Pretty boy will knock them out with his lack of intelligence, I’m sure!

I see the alias Christensen has replaced Da Silva and is interchangeable with Penson.
Interesting to note.

Just when you think nothing could be more of a joke than the UN Security Council, along comes the image of Bunnykins sitting on it as a member.

Comedy? Farce? I get so confused….

Great job as usual Brian. Thanks.
commented 2016-03-17 05:07:11 -0400
Canada earned it’s former position on the Security Council through the sacrifice of blood and treasure in the Second World War, Korea and subsequent peace keeping efforts. We lost our place at the table thanks to PET and subsequent Liberal PMs of the “soft power” persuasion. In a realpolotik sense Canada is now irrelevant. Harper simply had the misfortune to be PM when the inevitable happened. It should be interesting to see if the Liberals can bribe and charm their way back onto the council, which is completely dysfunctional in any event. I guess all it takes is a ton of other peoples money.

Sean Penson many Palestinians live in Israel moron, they get full rights and hold political office. The ones surrounding them are not peaceful and want Jews wiped out. And Israel respects other religions Islam does not idiot, did you miss all the Christain murders and church attacks by the Islamics? And where is Egypt and Lebanon when it comes to the Pals? They don’t let them in, so go preach to them you fool.

Do ya think Justie will bitch slap all the muzzies back in line once he buys his way onto the security council? No, I for one don’t think so. It fits into his new world order manifesto. No matter what, he will always have to sit at the kiddies table. The only thing this little prick has to offer the UN is the wholesale sell off of Canada to the lowest bidder.

Sean Penson commented
“Canada is back! Our credibility is being returned, as evidenced when the worldwide head of state, Secretary General Moon, payed homage to Justin. …..”

There once was a person who used many an alias
Who seems constantly in some sort of psychological crisis
One of the names that he is known by is Penson
Who mainly thrives when he creates a lot of tension
The man has proven to be such a tosser
Though he thinks he is as gifted as Geoffrey Chaucer
We presume he must be a paid Liberal troll
For no one could truly be such a bore
Forever posting from article to article
He presumes cleverness yet tis rather farcical

Spouting leftist propaganda clear across the board
He does not succeed at sowing discord
His postings elicit responses that show
Not that his writings are revered but rather are abhorred
But being a lost leftard he probably thinks he is adored

Many of his aliases have come and gone
But his job is not yet done
He will remain thinking he is bringing “the light”
But rather he gives us a terrifying insight
He shows us the nuances of this new Canadian Liberalism
How it is just revamped National Socialism

I noticed Carolyn Bennett there as one of the end tables for Trudeau’s speech photo op. She did her usual bipolar madness routine whereby she is smiling and two seconds later looks depressed enough to jump off the roof. She must be there to drum up some business for our aboriginals to bitch about as the Truth and Reconciliation is now old stale news. You go girl!

The info you gave us Brian re the Security Council, I dare to say that Trudeau is completely oblivious about it all.
commented 2016-03-16 23:09:52 -0400
Just another attempt by Trudeau to flex his muscles. Brian, you are so knowledgeable & do your research, so we can be informed. Thank you. As for Trudeau, he stands there surrounded by women to make himself look good (where is the gender equality there Mr. Trudeau, I didn’t see any men) & mutters a bunch of words with that smug look on his face. Look at me, unlike PM Harper, they all love me & we will get that seat, no matter what it costs, because " it’s the right thing to do".
commented 2016-03-16 22:22:26 -0400
International peace and security? What a joke. You can be sure Trudeau will be spending large on bribes for that seat. It feels more and more everyday like my country has been hijacked, and those in charge have us headed towards a totalitarian nightmare. What’s left of the free world is laughing at that boy.

The Durban Conference we boycotted because it was nothing more than an anti Semite anti Israel gathering of the worst abusers in the world.
commented 2016-03-16 21:19:57 -0400
Yup the Human Rights Council has some of the worst abusers on the planet.
Harper was right as usual!

Canada does not deserve this position – it is a cowardly, cut and run nation that believes all of islam is good and we need tens of thousands more in this country.

Most militaries now view Canada as not being worth much more than a cursory glance. Certainly the coalition of warriors in the Kuwait tactical operations centre has no time for Canadians at present as was evidenced by me when I was there about a month ago.

The UN is essentially run by islamics – and I have attached proof of this – so there is a decent chance Canada will be seated at the round table very soon.

The islamics love our pm after he took the shahada prayer.

Google “images of Trudeau taking shahada prayer in Montreal mosque”.

That is the conversion prayer.

While it is never mentioned publicly not many western military leaders have even a tiny speck of respect for Trudeau once these pics became public – and that will come to haunt us some day – perhaps sooner than most are willing to realize.

Much to the detriment of this country.

Who runs the UN?

Look here:

Canada is back! Our credibility is being returned, as evidenced when the worldwide head of state, Secretary General Moon, payed homage to Justin. Canada back on the Security Council will be a very treasured experience, well worth every effort. Harper hated the UN, and it showed. He had utter contempt for internationism and defied world order. He was also way too chummy with the State of Israel, which is a serious offence. Yes, the State of Israel has the right to exist, but the State of Israel must also recognise and respect the Arabic peoples around them, both Christian and Islamic, something that it has failed to do since it unilaterally declared independence in 1948. Jews have a right to the so-called homeland, as do the Palestinians. Remember, Israel was founded by means of terrorism caused by Mossad, terrorist activities against the British, who had the right to administer the region as the Trusteeship of Palestine.

So tell me what is the justification for all of the hangers on going to the Obama love in (he brought his mom on our dime, serioulsy) and now to the UN . Folks you and I are paying for this BS. Its money that is not being spent on things that benefit taxpayer. Please no one say that it does because I will ask how and you won’t have an answer. Significantly during this visit no comment was made about the on-going Softwood lumber impasse and perhaps in the spirit of our new found friendly relationship Kerry came out during the love in and stated that no pipelines will built into the USA from Canada. Well folks does this make Bev Odo’s cup o juice look like good or what. But remember how everyone was up in arms over the apparent misuse of money buying this juice. It was in the news for days. A bit of a tempest in a tea pot don’t you think?

Trudeau was bought and paid for by the UN.
commented 2016-03-16 18:19:46 -0400
Last I had heard, the UN was sharia compliant and that Saudi Arabia was head of Human Rights. If that is so, that would mean that the UN only believes in human rights according to Islam and human rights would apply to non-muslims as kafirs, which would mean that all muslims have rights over and above anyone else that isn’t a muslim…… …… and Trudeau wants us to be a part of of this UN…. I’ll let you all ponder that.

Look at the bright side. At least Cirque was a Canadian owned company. Well, until last year.

I would boycott the UN kleptocracy and put them on the list of undesirable foreign organizations;
until they meet at least a minimal set of criteria of transparency, auditing, and swift persecution of all those involved in corruption., payoffs, bribes, kickbacks, inducements, and laundering.

Or is that asking too much? :-O
