WhyThe United Nations Is Corrupt

May 1st, 2020 | AR

The United Nations was founded on the idea that democracy is an inherent right and that all nations are created equal. This is a false premise. Not all nations are created equal and not all people should have a say in world affairs. The idea that some nations should have equal control over geopolitical and cultural matters has brought us here, to a world filled with corruption, injustice, disorder and hypocrisy.

There is no better example of corruption than the World Health Organization. Nearly every major Western power has relied on the guidance of the WHO during the Coronavirus pandemic, leading us to an aftermath filled with speculation about corruption, incompetence and China's undue influence within the organization.

Believe it or not, Tedros Adhanom is the first director-general of the WHO that is not a medical doctor. Before him, Margaret Chan held the position, along with a medical degree from the University Of Western Ontario. Prior to Chan, the position was held by a Swedish physician named Anders Nordstrom. In fact, the list goes on. All of the director-generals prior to Tedros Adhanom held a degree in medicine.

Strangely, through several secret ballots, Tedros Adhanom was elected to the position in May of 2017 to replace Chan. Since then, trust in the organization has been on a steady downward spiral.

Before China would allow the WHO's medical experts into the country during the onset of the 2020 Coronavirus pandemic, it took a secret meeting between Adhanom and China's president, Xi Jinpping, on January 28. Following the meeting, China gave limited access to the WHO's experts and doctors, allowing them to examine samples of the virus, examine preliminary studies conducted by Wuhan scientists and to review the country's response. Coincidentally, one day after the private meeting, Adhanom praised China in a press conference, calling their response to the virus “a new standard for outbreak control.”

Quid pro quo.

The friendly coordination and backscratching between the WHO and China would not stop there. The WHO would spend a good part of February doting on China and praising the country's leadership. However, there is evidence that the WHO and China were cooperating long before the meeting between Adhanom and Xi Jingping took place.

Taiwanese health officials had sent an email to Tedros Adhanom and WHO officials on December 31, 2019. In their email, they warned about signs that the Coronavirus was, potentially, being transmitted human-to-human, similar to previous forms of SARS. Adhanom has denied that the Taiwanese government had ever warned of human-to-human transmission and said they had only emailed to “inquire” about whether human-to-human transmission was happening in Wuhan. However, months later, following repeated and continued denials from Adhanom and WHO officials, the Taiwanese government released a statement on April 11, saying:

In response to WHO’s denial that Taiwan ever alerted it to the possibility of human-to-human transmission of COVID-19, the Central Epidemic Command Center makes the following statement today, April 11:

  1. The Taiwan Centers for Disease Control (Taiwan CDC) learned from online sources that there had been at least seven cases of atypical pneumonia in Wuhan, China. In China, the term “atypical pneumonia” is commonly used to refer to SARS, a disease transmitted between humans caused by coronavirus.

  2. Owing to its experience with the SARS epidemic in 2003, Taiwan vigilantly kept track of information about the new outbreak. On December 31, 2019, Taiwan sent an email to the International Health Regulations (IHR) focal point under the World Health Organization (WHO), informing WHO of its understanding of the disease and also requesting further information from WHO. Given the lack of clarity at the time, as well as the many rumors that were circulating, Taiwan’s aim was to ensure that all relevant parties remained alert, especially since the outbreak occurred just before the Lunar New Year holiday, which typically sees tremendous amounts of travel. To be prudent, in the email we took pains to refer to atypical pneumonia, and specifically noted that patients had been isolated for treatment. Public health professionals could discern from this wording that there was a real possibility of human-to-human transmission of the disease. However, because at the time there were as yet no cases of the disease in Taiwan, we could not state directly and conclusively that there had been human-to-human transmission.


    4. Even though Taiwan strongly suspected that human-to-human transmission of the disease was already occurring at the time, we were unable to gain confirmation through existing channels. Therefore, on the day the aforementioned email was sent to WHO, the Taiwan government activated enhanced border control and quarantine measures based on the assumption that human-to-human transmission was in fact occurring. These measures included screening passengers on flights from Wuhan prior to disembarkation.

Two weeks after Taiwan sent the email warning of the possibility of human-to-human transmission of the Coronavirus, the WHO tweeted, “Preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) identified in Wuhan, China.”

This was the tweet, which has not been deleted from the organization's timeline:

It was only a couple of weeks later that the WHO and China would admit there were, in fact, human-to-human transmissions. By then, there was no way to hide it. Footage posted on social media from China showed videos of men in biohazard suits spraying towns with disinfectant and force-quarantining entire neighbourhoods in Wuhan and other parts of China.

By late February, it was obvious that the Coronavirus was not only being transmitted human-to-human, but that the virus may be highly lethal and highly contagious.

As a result of the WHO's mishandling of the pandemic, the whole global economy has been put in a lockdown—causing one of the worst economic recessions in history. Still, the WHO and many globalist world leaders have continued to praise China and ignore the country's ongoing failures and lies relating to the Coronavirus. They have also carried on ignoring China's many other human rights failures over the past 50 years.

"Taiwanese health officials had sent an email to Tedros Adhanom and WHO officials on December 31, 2019."

Taiwan Is Not A Member

In 1971, China pushed the United Nations to pass Resolution 2758, which resulted in the expulsion of Taiwan from the organization. Taiwan is also referred to as The Republic Of China, which has long been a point of contention and cold war between China and Taiwan.

Taiwan is an open and transparent democracy, similar to Canada, South Korea, Japan, most of Europe and the United States. To date, Taiwan is the only highly populated, democratic, economically advanced and developed country to not have a membership in the United Nations. This is due to China's ongoing financial influence within every facet and tentacle of the organization. Currently, because of China, the United Nations does not recognize Taiwan as a separate, independent state—despite the country having its own democratically elected government and military.

Since the COVID-19 crisis, a war of words has broken out between the WHO and Taiwan. The Chinese-influenced organization has accused Taiwan of engaging in a “racist campaign” against Tedros Adhanom due mostly to what was described above—relating to Taiwan's warnings about human-to-human transmission and accusations about Adhanom defending China and propagating Chinese misinformation.

Accusing opponents of racism has become a common political tactic employed by the Chinese government and its authorities. Since the beginning of the pandemic, China and its various global agents have called travel bans, criticisms and factual publications against China and its handling of the Coronavirus “racist”.

Western Nations Must Act

Countries like Canada and the United States must act against China and its influence within the United Nations. Leaders like Justin Trudeau cannot continue to tout themselves as warriors of fairness, freedom and democracy as long as they continue to support China's efforts to spread misinformation and to suppress the democratic Republic Of China (Taiwan).

Nations like China and Saudi Arabia should not hold seats on the UN's Human Rights Council. These positions should not be “elected” within the organization and nations should hold certain prerequisites and requirements to qualify. The entire concept of freedom and human rights cannot be taken seriously as long as country's like China are “elected” to such councils using their money, power and political influence.

In order for the United Nations to work, it must be fully controlled by nations that qualify on a spectrum of human rights and democratic freedoms. Countries like Canada should not have to send their leaders globetrotting around the world to bribe nations for votes in order to be “elected” to the Human Rights Council. As long as the United Nations operates on a standard that allows countries that do not practice democracy and human rights to have a say in world affairs, it won't succeed.

Currently, the United Nations operates under a standard that gives undue power and influence to nations like China, Saudi Arabia and Russia. This system has corrupted global politics and turned democratic nations against each other.

Environmental, economic and social standards are unequally distributed and enforced under this current system, allowing countries like China to escape criticism on matters of health, human rights and environmental practices. Over the years, the corruption within the United Nations has become more clear due to the obvious and visible biases that have surfaced.

The time for the world to act is now. The time to reform, or end, the United Nations has arrived.
