Defund the UN: Human Rights Abusers Likely to Join the UN Human Rights Council

Published

on

On October 13, 2020, the U.N. General Assembly will carry out elections for 15 seats on the 47-nation Human Rights Council for three-year terms starting on January 1, 2021.

The United Nations Human Rights Watch called on member countries not to vote for China and Saudi Arabia, some of the more prolific human rights abusers, for seats on the Human Rights Council. Additionally, it cited Russia’s various war crimes in Syria as to why it should not be elected.

“It’s not good for human rights or for the rights council when the worst rights violators get elected,” Charbonneau remarked. “Fortunately, even the most abusive governments have been unable to stop the council from shining a light on rights violations around the world, though not for lack of trying. That’s grounds for hope.”

“Serial rights abusers should not be rewarded with seats on the Human Rights Council,” declared Louis Charbonneau, the UN director at Human Rights Watch. “China and Saudi Arabia have not only committed massive rights violations at home, but they have tried to undermine the international human rights system they’re demanding to be a part of.”

Hillel Neuer, the Executive Director of UN Watch, expressed similar thoughts about the UN in a recent tweet. He tweeted, “One week from tomorrow, these will be the world’s judges of human rights at the United Nations. I’m trying to stop the world’s worst human rights abusers from being elected, but not a single European Union country will say or do a thing. Our new report: http://unwatch.org/report-china-r

In the Twitter post, are pictures of the leaders of China (Xi Jinping), Cuba (Raúl Castro), Pakistan (Imran Khan), Russia, (Vladimir Putin) and Saudi Arabia (Mohammed bin Salman), Venezuela (Nicólas Maduro).

The U.S. currently funds the UN to the tune of $10 billion dollars. For an institution that cares very little about American freedoms, the UN does not merit additional money given to it. In fact, the U.S. should withdraw all funding from the UN.

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro Endorses Donald Trump’s Reelection

Ties have grown between America and Brazil in recent years.

Published

on

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro announced his endorsement of President Donald Trump in an event signing a new trade agreement between the United States and Brazil on Tuesday in the South American country.

God willing I will be able to attend Trump’s second inauguration,” said Bolsonaro at a press conference detailing the new agreement with US National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien. Bolsonaro wanted to emphasize that he does not wish to “interfere” with the US election, but that his support for President Trump comes from the heart.

Bolsonaro and Trump have coordinated on policy to contain Venezuelan and Cuban-style Communism within South America. NSA O’Brien stated that relations between the US and Brazil have “never been stronger” at the trade agreement signing. The US designated Brazil a “non-NATO” ally in 2019, and the two countries have worked together on environmental policy to deter wildfires in the Amazon rainforest.

The new “mini-trade deal” signed between the two countries will regulate telecommunications exchanges between the US and Brazil. Brazil, which is the second-most populous nation in the New World with 211 million people, is an increasingly significant country in global business and diplomatic affairs.

Bolsonaro himself is somewhat of a right-wing populist in the veins of global leaders such as Viktor Orban, Andrzej Duda, and President Trump. He won election in 2018 in a landslide, capitalizing on alienation among the Brazilian electorate for the socialist-style governments that had governed the country for over a decade, mass crime, and preferences for gun rights.

Establishment liberals frequently receive endorsement from globalist leaders across the world, and never think twice about not crying “foreign interference” in the event that it benefits them. President Bolsonaro isn’t an American, but it certainly bodes well to see the leader of the Americas’ second largest country develop a strong working relationship with President Trump.
