In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, China was awarded a prestigious seat on the Consultative Group of the United Nations Human Rights Council last week.
China will hold onto the seat until at least March 2021. Jiang Duan, minister at the Chinese Mission in Geneva, will be Beijing’s representative on the panel. He will help recommend candidates for UN human rights experts on behalf of the Chinese communists, and Republicans in Congress are crying foul as a result.
“There is no justification whatsoever in empowering a Chinese government official, Jiang Duan, to investigate human rights abuses until there is a reckoning with regard to China’s own record,” said Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), who serves on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs and works on the Congressional-Executive Commission on China.
Republican Senators John Cornyn of Texas, Marco Rubio of Florida, James Inhofe of Oklahoma, Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, Martha McSally of Arizona, Ted Cruz of Texas, and Kevin Cramer of North Dakota issued a letter to the U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres demanding that they remove China from the panel.
“China should not occupy a position of prestige or influence on the UN Human Rights Council while it engages in human rights violations of the worst kind both at home and abroad,” the senators wrote.
The senators are enraged that the UN is providing China “with the opportunity to play a central role in picking at least 17 human rights investigators, including those who look at freedom of speech, enforced disappearance and arbitrary detention, rights abuses which the Chinese regime routinely perpetrates.”
“In addition to its willful deceit and gross negligence regarding its handling of the COVID-19 outbreak, China is guilty of widespread and well-documented cases of human rights abuses targeting the Uyghur Muslim community in Xinjiang province,” the letter states.
The United States left the Human Rights Council in 2018 because of their extreme political bias, which has demonstrated itself yet again with this appointment of a Chinese representative to the influential panel.
“Human rights abusers continue to serve on, and be elected to, the council,” said former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley. “The world’s most inhumane regimes continue to escape its scrutiny, and the council continues politicizing scapegoating of countries with positive human rights records in an attempt to distract from the abusers in its ranks.”
“For too long,” Haley added, “the Human Rights Council has been a protector of human rights abusers, and a cesspool of political bias.”
“Today the US took a stand against some of the world’s worst human rights violators by withdrawing from the United Nations Human Rights Council. By elevating and protecting human rights violators and engaging in smear campaigns against democratic nations, the UNHRC makes a mockery of itself, its members, and the mission it was founded on. For years, the UNHRC has engaged in ever more virulent anti-American, and anti-Israel invective and the days of U.S. participation are over,” Vice President Mike Pence wrote in a Twitter post at the time.
The World Health Organization (WHO) is also under the umbrella of the UN, and they have done the bidding of the Chinese throughout the coronavirus crisis.

Perhaps the UN is rewarding China for a job well done after they unleashed the coronavirus throughout the world, which will give the globalists the excuse they need to push vaccine mandates.
Italian Populist Youth Group Praises Trump for His Peace Efforts
The Lega Nord is one of Europe’s strongest populist parties.
The Lega Giovani, the youth branch of Salvini’s Lega party, announced its support in nominating President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Due to Trump’s efforts in brokering peace deals between Gulf Arab states and Israel, one Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde nominated the president for the Nobel Peace prize.
In a statement, Luca Toccalini, a member of the Italian Parliament and Chairman of Lega Giovani, declared that the “globalist left is losing its mind, scared by the outcome of the upcoming American elections, and this latest news decisively increased their worries.”
Toccalini added that Lega Giovani “strongly” supports the “nomination of President Donald Trump, a just reward for the continued dedication of his administration for lasting peace with a bilateral and multi polar approach.”
The populist Italian member of Parliament noted how Trump’s Middle East agenda has contrasted with Obama’s:
After a decade of turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, sponsored by a globalist agenda and President Obama’s dreams of revolution, the last 4 years have seen great improvement for the stability in our neighbourhood which has also helped Europe.
Wishing four more years of peace and greatness, as Lega Giavani we strongly support Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Matteo Salvini and Lega have led the way in putting populism on the map throughout Europe. Salvini broke the mold by implementing pro-gun reforms in 2018 and 2019. What seems like a concept that is only confined to the U.S., now the right to bear arms is starting to enter the conversation in Europe. Political organizations like Lega have undoubtedly changed political discourse in Italian politics and Europe, for that matter.
Youth organizations such as Lega Giovani will play a substantial role in spreading Lega’s message and educating younger generations of Italians and preparing them to be the new populist vanguard of an ever-changing European polity.
