Maurice Strong and the Cap & Trade Crime of the Century | RedState

Maurice Strong is the environmental George Soros. Most people don’t know who Maurice Strong is. You shouldn’t be one of them.

Glen Beck discussed the Chicago Climate Exchange (where Strong is a board member) about a week ago, and I’ve been waiting for Beck to return to the “Crime Inc.” topic and bring up Strong’s name. Beck did so for a segment on Wednesday. Beck then said to his audience: “You find everything you can on this man.” The “becktips@foxnews.com” address was listed on the screen. Beck warned that the internet was in the process of being scrubbed.

First, a personal confession. I’m tired. I have a 10-month-old and a 2-year-old. Every day is a long day. My mother-in-law went into the hospital this past week. A firend of mine (in his 50s) passed away unexpectedly. I try my best every day to tell people not to kill Jews. I try my best to tell President Obama to stop spending money this nation doesn’t have. I’m tired. I’m tired that I have to defend the Constitution from the President and from Congress. I have worked all my life to tell the truth of this country’s history, and I’ve become modestly known–though penniless–for my work. This is my second RedState post this morning. I’ll try to tell the story about Maurice Strong, but it will be in more than one part. I’m tired.

SCANDAL? WHAT SCANDAL? WHY SHOULD WE CARE ABOUT MAURICE STRONG? IT WASN’T IN THE PAPERS!
Glenn Beck connected the dots to the “crime of the century” over a week ago, and the MSM was silent. He showed the union leader here, and the union leader there, and the Soros-funded groups over there, and there’s Bill Ayers’ brother over here, and there’s Barack Obama. The press yawned.

This post by Newshounds Beck critic Aunty Em on May 2nd, “The Beck Week That Was;Beck Whines About The Media Ignoring His Expose Comparing Regulation To One World Government And Slavery,” sums up the MSM thinking:

The official transcript doesn’t mention a “Global Government” and “New World Order,” but Beck knows what dog whistle will have his audience baying at the moon when he lays out his new phony-boloney, connect-the-dots, conspiracy between Al Gore, Cap & Trade, Goldman Sachs, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae and, of course, Socialist President Barack Obama. He was right in his opening, though. Not a single media outlet picked up on the story and he was left whining about it the next morning on his Radio Drama Theatre. Media Matters said other media didn’t report it, quite rightly, “Because it’s delusional and stupid, Glenn.” Simon Maloy wrote a very funny article, well worth reading for yourselves.

What Beck fails to take into account, whenever he whines about one of his exposés being ignored, is how rapacious the media is at uncovering real news. Try and stop it. However, Beck would rather have the Fourth Estate connecting the dots between non-related coincidences and natural business connections, as he does, to find a conspiracy behind every bush. The simple fact is this: Even the most passionate Obama-loving reporter would chase a real story that could bring down the Obama administration, because journalists covet Pulitzer Prizes more than administration gratitude. If there were any reality to a single one of ‘Jimmy Olsen’ Beck’s Big Scoops, a real reporter would jump on the story faster than he could jump on a chocolate éclair. No, Glenn, the deafening silence you hear is the sound of reporters ignoring nothing at all.

I let Aunty Em have it, even pointing out that she used a fake quote of Samuel Adams. While she immediately replied to someone else to correct the spelling error of a word, she wouldn’t reply to me. I said that the MSM interest doesn’t mean there’s nothing here. I solved the origin of “the Big Apple” and no newspaper in New York City would cover it, even though they daily put a teenage whore named Amy Fisher on their front pages. A guy connected the dots to the SEC and said “I THINK BERNIE MADOFF IS RUNNING A PONZI SCHEME” and the SEC did nothing. The John Edwards scandal was discovered by the National Enquirer.

You expect the MSM to tell you about Maurice Strong and to connect the dots? Who has the time or the resources to look into this? Why not just run photos of Tiger Woods’ 150th mistress?

Plus, Glenn Beck connected the dots. Strike one. Obama is the president, and he’s very powerful. Strike two. If one of the MSM picks up this story and accuses people in power, bad things could happen. If the MSM doesn’t pick it the story, who will take notice of something that isn’t reported?

Beck confessed last night that his producer cried when going over this stuff. It could be dangerous to them. Friends of Obama have been organizing a boycott of Beck’s advertisers for the past year.

“Question with boldness,” my friend.

MAURICE STRONG’S WIKIPEDIA PAGE
To find out about Maurice Strong, go to his Wikipedia page. You’ll notice at the top: “Editing of this article by new or unregistered users is currently disabled.”

A check of the page’s history shows about 30 edits on May 12th alone.

The Maurice Strong Wikipedia page intro is this:

Maurice F. Strong, PC, CC, OM, FRSC (born April 29, 1929) is a Canadian businessman. He is an entrepreneur, environmentalist, and one of the world’s leading proponents of the United Nations’s involvement in world affairs.

Born in Oak Lake, Manitoba, Strong had his start as a petroleum entrepreneur and became president of Power Corporation until 1966. In the early 1970s he was Secretary-General of the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment and then became the first Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Programme. He returned to Canada to become Chief Executive Officer of Petro-Canada from 1976 to 1978. He headed Ontario Hydro, one of North Americas largest power utilities, was national President and Chairman of the Extension Committee of the World Alliance of YMCAs, and headed American Water Development Incorporated.

Today Strong lives in the People’s Republic of China,[citation needed] and is President of the Council of the United Nations’s University for Peace. UPEACE is the only university in the UN system able to grant degrees at the masters and doctoral. He is an active honorary professor at Peking University and Honorary Chairman of its Environmental Foundation. He is Chairman of the Advisory Board for the Institute for Research on Security and Sustainability for Northeast Asia.[citation needed]

The short fact about Maurice Strong is that he’s a very rich man. Whether he believes the climate crap he proposes or not, it’s certain that he’ll become wealthier if governments go along with his plans. There’s a certain honesty to that. Like: “Al Gore is making $100 million off of this scam. Joe Lieberman.Lindsey Graham, what’s your excuse?”

What Maurice Strong professes top believe are things that I firmly do not believe. Maurice Strong has worked with the United Nations for a very long time and trusts it to be a leader on Cap & Trade schemes. (I believe that the United Nations is a fraud.) Maurice Strong is a socialist and believes that rich countries should share the wealth. (I don’t believe that it’s the role of any government to redistribute earned income.) Maurice Strong believes that the world is overpopulated, as Malthus predicted, and that a China one-child policy, abortions, wars, sterilization, low sperm counts and such are all good things. (I believe that my wife should have as many babies as she wants.) Maurice Strong believes in a “New World Order,” with global rules with global courts and a global currency. (See my opinions on the United Nations failed experiment when talking about anything “global.” The United States must never surrender its sovereignty.)

Maurice Strong’s views are a direct danger to the United States of America. The only “good” thing about him is that his name is now an obvious red flag to us.

MAURICE STRONG VIDEOS
Glenn Beck has asked for Maurice Strong videos. There are plenty.

I’ve cautioned everyone here before about Jesse Ventura’s conspiracy theories (such as 9-11). There is a nine-minute video, “Maurice Strong at root of Global Warming Scam,” and it’s probably the most accessible summary of the Maurice Strong story. I know it’s Jesse Ventura and Tru TV, but the opening is pasted from other videos and the interview of a Strong associate is OK.

There’s a nine-minute CBC (Canada) documentary, “Maurice Strong’s unprecedented rise to power.” It’s OK, but it doesn’t exactly ask tough questions of its subject.

Definitely check out “Lord Christopher Monckton exposes Climate Change scam and Maurice Strong.” Lord Monckton is the anti-Strong. God bless Monckton! (Also Tru TV, For what that’s worth.)

There is a lengthy, four-part “Alan Watt on Alex Jones Tv 1/4:Who is Maurice Strong?” Skip it. There’s very little here about Maurice Strong. It’s mostly Alex Jones on the usual New World Order stuff–some of which I agree with, some of which I most certainly do not agree with. The visual is just a talking head.

The new world devised by Maurice Strong and George Soros
United Nations and its carefully managed One World Order

By Judi McLeod Monday, November 24, 2008http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/6485

According to financial experts, the world, as we know it will change dramatically by the year 2012. People, who provided for their families only three years ago, will be desperately searching for food. The story of the economic meltdown of 2008 begins and ends with the United Nations and its carefully managed One World Order. Behind the curtain of this dark chapter in human misery are ogres Maurice Strong and George Soros.

This was written back in October 2009. RedState’s Cold Warrior added some comments:

My Epiphany – It all boils down to this!
Posted on October 20, 2009
As I assembled the Maurice Strong Database, all of a sudden I understood.

I am not a researcher, I am not a journalist, I have a full time job away from here. I am just a citizen, like you. None the less, I think I have it figured out.

Everything that is wrong with this country – all of it boils down to the United Nations and Agenda 21 but more importantly, it boils down to one man – Maurice Strong

Cap and trade
*Strong in an interview at WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM – WASHINGTON, D.C. on APRIL 4, 2001 was asked about biodiversity and smart growth helping with energy issues: Absolutely and also paradox, we are going to see higher energy prices, and higher energy prices will provide a very strong incentive for people to use energy more efficiently [JV: like giving a dog a bone]. Not that one should advocate high prices, but high prices are not all bad, they will permit people, and even [encourage] people to use energy more efficiently.

http://www.openmarket.org/2007/07/27/maurice-strong/

*Why am I not surprised to see his name involved with cap-and-trade? Let’s see, he was involved in Oil for Food, and cash funneled via U.N. agencies to North Korea, and under Kofi Annan received a million dollar check bankrolled by Saddam Hussein’s U.N.-sanctioned regime that was delivered by Tongsun Park—Maurice Strong embodies all that is sinister and shady.

Today he is involved in the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX), the only firm in the U.S. that trades carbon credits, no doubt because he cares about the environment.

This reveals the plots for 2012:

Maurice Strong- Man Behind Agenda 21 – Part 2
Posted on October 20, 2009
(…)
The biggest threat to the sovereignty of the United States has to be United Nations Agenda 21. Its tentacles are so interwoven into our lives it is like an aggressive cancer.

This cancer, Agenda 21, also known as Local Agenda 21 or LA-21, is nothing short of an attack on this country. It came to life in 1992 and is spreading across the globe with the help of anyone who happens to buy into the idea of a global threat. Its real purpose is hidden inside a cloaked presentation of environmental sustainability, however, it is about control of your life, your children’s lives, their children’s lives and on into perpetuity.

Maurice Strong is an admitted socialist. His sister was a Marxist. He thinks you and yours have eaten too much, used too much and now must pay. Of course like every elite socialist, that just means you, not him, or his fellow elitist.

Youth must be indoctrinated, of course. Strong has the Earth Scouts:

Maurice Strong

Oh, and by the way.. not that this necessarily means anything, the company is located in the same building as The National Institute of Health in Bethesda, MD.

SUMMARY
This must be stopped. Maurice Strong’s plans are not in America’s interest. Cap & Trade has now been renamed “The American Power Act.” If passed, America will lose its power.

“Soldier for Liberty” has done yeoman work on Maurice Strong. Glenn Beck should present all of it to his wider audience.

SHORTER SUMMARY
I’m tired. Maybe more later.

Maurice Strong- It’s hilarious to watch the ‘net be scrubbed… The last thing the folks who think like him want is for ordinary people to learn what this fellow’s been up to the past couple of decades.. and who he associates with.

But people who read this blog have been on this scent trail for years.. and more people are learning why they should connect the dots.. to fight back against the dreadful plans these people have for people like us.. people who embrace freedom and the American Way of life and liberty.

Attack of the NGOs (Non Governmental Organizations)

One rarely hears of it. Few elected officials raise an eyebrow. The media makes no mention of it. But power is slowly slipping away from our elected representatives. In much the same way Mao Tse-tung had his Red Guards, so the UN has its NGOs They may well be your masters of tomorrow, and you don’t even know who or what they are. 

There are, in fact, two parallel, complimentary forces operating in the world, working together to advance the global Sustainable Development agenda, ultimately heading toward UN global governance. Those two forces are the UN itself and non-governmental organizations (NGOs.)

Beginning with the United Nations, the infrastructure pushing the Sustainable Development agenda is a vast, international matrix. At the top of the heap is the United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP). Created in 1973 by the UN General Assembly, the UNEP is the catalyst through which the global environmental agenda is implemented. Virtually all of the international environmental programs and policy changes that have occurred globally in the past three decades are the result of UNEP efforts.

But the UNEP doesn’t operate on its own. Influencing it and helping to write policy are thousands of non- governmental organizations (NGOs). These are private groups which seek to implement a specific political agenda. Through the UN infrastructure, particularly through the UNEP, they have great power.

The phrase “non-governmental organization” came into use with the establishment of the United Nations Organization in 1945 with provisions in Article 71 of Chapter 10 of the United Nations Charter. The term describes a consultative role for organizations that are neither government nor member states of the UN.

NGOs are not just any private group hoping to influence policy. True NGOs are officially sanctioned by the United Nations. Such status was created by UN Resolution #1296 in 1948, giving NGOs official “Consultative” status to the UN. That means they can not only sit in on international meetings, but can actively participate in creating policy, right along side government representatives.

There are numerous classifications of NGO’s. The two most common are “Operational” and “Advocacy.”

Operational NGOs are involved with designing and implementing specific projects such as feeding the hungry or organizing relief projects. These groups can be religious or secular. They can be community-based, national or international. The International Red Cross falls under the category of an operational NGO.

Advocacy NGOs are promoting a specific political agenda. They lobby government bodies, use the news media and organize activist-oriented events, all designed to raise awareness and apply pressure to promote their causes which include environmental issues, human rights, poverty, education, children, drinking water, and population control – to name a few.

Amnesty International is the largest human rights advocacy NGO in the world. Organized globally, it has more than 1.8 million members, supporters and subscribers in over 150 countries.

Today these NGOs have power nearly equal to member nations when it comes to writing U.N. policy. Just as civil service bureaucrats provide the infrastructure for government operation, so to do NGOs provide such infrastructure for the U.N. In fact, most U.N. policy is first debated and then written by the NGOs and presented to national government officials at international meetings for approval and ratification. It is through this process that the individual political agendas of the NGO groups enter the international political arena.

The policies sometimes come in the form of international treaties or simply as policy guidelines. Once the documents are presented to and accepted by representatives of member states and world leaders, obscure political agendas of private organizations suddenly become international policy, and are then adopted as national and local laws by U.N. member states. Through this very system, Sustainable Development has grown from a collection of ideas and wish lists of a wide variety of private organizations to become the most widely implemented tool in the U.N.’s quest for global governance.

Who are the NGOs?

The three most powerful organizations influencing UNEP policy are three international NGOs. They are the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the International Union for Conservation and Nature (IUCN). These three groups provide the philosophy, objectives and methodology for the international environmental agenda through a series of official reports and studies such as: World Conservation Strategy, published in 1980 by all three groups; Global Biodiversity Strategy, published in 1992; and Global Biodiversity Assessment, published in 1996.

These groups not only influence UNEP’s agenda, they also influence a staggering array of international and national NGOs around the world. Jay Hair, former head of the National Wildlife Federation, one of the U.S.’s largest environmental organizations, was also the president of the IUCN. Hair later turned up as co-chairman of the Presidents Council on Sustainable Development.

The WWF maintains a network of national chapters around the world, which influence, if not dominate, NGO activities at the national level. It is at the national level where NGOs agitate and lobby national governments to implement the policies that the IUCN, WWF and WRI get written into the documents that are advanced by the UNEP. In this manner, the world grows ever closer to global governance.

Other than treaties, how does UNEP policy become U.S. policy? Specifically, the IUCN has an incredible mix of U.S. government agencies along with major U.S. NGOs as members. Federal agencies include the Department of State, Department of Interior, Department of Agriculture, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the National Park Service (NPS) the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) and the Fish and Wildlife service. These agencies send representatives to all meetings of the UNEP.

Also attending those meetings as active members are NGO representatives. These include activist groups such as the Environmental Defense Fund, National Audubon Society, The Nature Conservancy, National Wildlife Federation, Zero Population growth, Planned Parenthood, the Sierra Club, the National Education Association, and hundreds more. These groups all have specific political agendas they desire to become law. Through their official contact with government agencies working side-by-side with the UNEP, their political wish lists become official government policy.

How the NGO wish list becomes law how can this be, you ask? How can private organizations control policy and share equal power to elected officials? Here’s how it works.

When the dust settled over the 1992 Rio Earth Summit, five major documents were forced into international policy that will change forever how national policy is made. More importantly, the Rio Summit produced the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED). UNCED outlined a new procedure for shaping policy. The procedure has no name, nor is it dictatorial. It is perhaps best described as “controlled consensus” or “affirmative acquiescence.”

Put in simple street language, the procedure really amounts to a collection of NGOs, bureaucrats and government officials, all working together toward a predetermined outcome. They have met together in meetings, written policy statements based on international agreements, which they helped to create and now they are about to impose laws and regulations that will have dire effects on people’s lives and national economies. Yet, with barely a twinge of conscience they move forward with the policy, saying nothing. No one objects. It’s understood. Everyone goes along, because this is a barbaric procedure that insures their desired outcome without the ugliness of bloodshed, or even debate. It is the procedure used to advance the radical, global environmental agenda.

The UNCED procedure utilizes four elements of power: international government (UN); national governments; non-governmental organizations, and philanthropic institutions.

The NGOs are the key to the process. They create policy ideas from their own private agendas. The policy idea is then adopted by one or more U.N. organizations for consideration at a regional conference. Each conference is preceded by an NGO forum designed specifically to bring NGO activists into the debate. There they are fully briefed on the policy and then trained to prepare papers and lobby and influence the official delegates of the conference. In this way, the NGOs control the debate and assure the policy is adopted.

The ultimate goal of the conference is to produce a “Convention,” which is a legally- drawn policy statement on specific issues. Once the “Convention” is adopted by the delegates, it is sent to the national governments for official ratification. Once that is done, the new policy becomes international law.

Then the real work begins. Compliance must be assured. Again, the NGOs come into the picture. They are responsible for pressuring Congress to write national laws in order to comply with the treaty. One trick used to assure compliance is to write into the laws the concept of third-party lawsuits.

NGOs now regularly sue the government and private citizens to force policy. Their legal fees and even damage awards are paid to them out of the government treasury. Through a coordinated process, hundreds of NGOs are at work in Congress, in every state government and in every local community, advancing some component of the global environmental agenda.

However, the United States Constitution’s Tenth Amendment bars the Federal Government from writing laws that dictate local policy. To bypass this roadblock, NGOs encourage Congress to include special grants to help states and communities to fund the new policy, should they want to “voluntarily” comply.

Should a community or state refuse to participate “voluntarily,” local chapters of the NGOs are trained to go into action. They begin to pressure city councils or county commissioners to accept the grants and implement the policy. Should they meet resistance, they begin to issue news releases telling the community their elected officials are losing millions of dollars for the community. The pressure continues until the grant is finally taken and the policy becomes local law.

Americans must begin to understand that the debate over environmental issues have very little to do with clean water and air and much more to do with the establishment of power. NGOs are gaining it, locally elected officials are losing it, as the structure of American government changes to accommodate the private agendas of NGOs.

Attention All Sheep.. You are being sheared, and soon to be slaughtered should you resist.

Agenda 21 for lower living standards- United Nations World Government

Even sensible democrats are shocked at the UN effort to destroy America. What does it take to take out the politicians that push “sustainability”.. another version of the “Green Movement”. The UN is determined to impose communism on the USA.

Your taxes are being used against used to promote this agenda.

UN Human Rights Commission.. Lusted over by Islamic States

This Englishman has firsthand experience with the tentacles of radical Islam. The effort by Islamic states to subdue and stop all discussion of worldwide examples of evil doing should wake up every freedom loving individual everywhere. The intolerant cannot tolerate truth telling.. and hope to use the cover of the UN to impose severe penalties for anyone accused of reporting observations of beastly behavior by Muslims anywhere. Nothing new really- after all, this has been policy for hundreds of years among those populations who have been tormented by Sharia “law”.

What is “Unsustainable”?

UNEP Global Biodiversity Assessment Report

What does the UN spend our money on?

Unsustainable.. a code word for the effort to use the environment as the segue to instituting control of America via world counts and one world government..

Here’s an example: UNEP Global Biodiversity Assessment Report
A primer for unwinding modern technology and efficiencies. Radical effort to dramatically reduce American standard of living- and stop the possibility of rising standard of living in developing countries.

Yeah.. your taxes underwrite these loons, too. They would not exist if it weren’t for our taxes.. or if we had politicians with enough common sense to defund all contributions to the anti American organization: The United Nations.
