In a classic case of misdirection, while the media are preoccupied with the fate of the Bush tax cuts, President Obama is preparing to attend a United Nations summit next week to endorse “innovative finance mechanisms”—global taxes—to drain even more wealth out of the U.S. economy.
A draft “outcome document” produced in advance of the September 20-22 U.N. Summit on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) commits the nations of the world to supporting “innovative financing mechanisms” to supplement foreign aid spending.
The term “innovative financing mechanisms” is a U.N. euphemism for global taxes. But the document actually goes further, praising the “Task Force on International Financial Transactions for Development” for its work on the subject of mobilizing additional “resources” for countries to achieve the MDGs. This is a body tasked with proposing and implementing global tax schemes.
“We consider,” the document says, “that innovative financing mechanisms can make a positive contribution in assisting developing countries to mobilize additional resources for financing for development on a voluntary basis. Such financing should supplement and not be a substitute for traditional sources of financing.”
In other words, the revenue from global taxes should be in addition to foreign aid spending.
Just great. More of our tax money for third world Marxist shitholes.
Obama and the U.N. are on a “globalization” kick of enormous proportions, and this is another step in that direction.
Timmy Geithner expressed his “openness” for a one-world currency:
And Obama has done his fair share of prostration before the U.N.:
Now he’s pitching the idea of a U.N.-sponsored “global tax”; the prospect of which makes leftwingnuts do cartwheels.
The United States is on the hook to the International Monetary Fund for 17%. Which means the American taxpayer foots the bill—17 cents on the dollar—for any amount of money the IMF doles out. This is nothing less than global welfare; giving money to perpetually undeveloped countries, instead of bringing them into a free-market, industrialized 21st Century. We’re supporting entire nations of economic derelicts.
The ultimate goal is the U.N. control of taxation and governance on a global scale. Miguel D’Escoto Brockmann, a Nicaraguan Sandinista who held the position of U.N. General Assembly President from 2008-2009, preached incessently of “global governance”.
Obama is only too glad to oblige.
