Fake Court In The Hague As UN Guterres Whispers With Russia's Shoygu Keeping Jho Low's Money UNanswered

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPNReview

UN GATE / ICJ, March 6 -- With a break in the Jho Low 1MDB trial in Brooklyn, Kurt was all about the United Arab Emirates. Not the sheikhdom on the Gulf, where he would no doubt be arrested and jailed, but the UAE's Mission to the UN on 46th Street.

Kurt had emailed Ambassador Lana Nusseibeh and her staff questions about where the money Sheikh Mansour and presumptively the Crown Prince had stolen from Malaysian had done. As with the UN which also stole and kept the money, no answer. But it was only the UAE which had illegal paid Tom Barrack. And Nusseibeh was almost certainly involved. So Kurt went looking for answers.

  Even on a Sunday, the UAE Mission and/or Guterres censor/spokesman Stephane Dujarric screwed up. First they put out a UNSC Press Statement on a bombing in Pakistan saying that Nusseibeh had "delivered" it on Saturday. Then they put it out again, calling it Revised but not indicating what had been revised - had they added in some code language or other dog whistle to terrorists? - now claiming that that is was delivered today, Sunday. Which was it?

And how was it delivered?

   Kurt stood in front of the UAE Mission on 46th Street, like an Amazon delivery man. He checked his flip phone and something caught his eye. Michael Randall Long had told him how desperate Guterres had been, looking for dirt on Russia, not to go public but to get them to stop the rare public criticism of him.

  And here was a story that Guterres had called and thanked Russia's Defense Minister Shoygy on Friday. But UN Spokesperson Dujarric had not mentioned it, in that day's noon briefing he banned Kurt from, nor in the read-outs since. There was a read out on Thursday, then one on Saturday about Guterres getting some phone time with Ukraine foreign minister, seemingly to talk up his crony Amin Awad, the seller-out of Tamils in Sri Lanka. But no mention of Guterres' craven Russian call.

  So was this where Guterres had tried to monetize for himself the info from Long's Malaysian client about the MH17 flight shot down over Donbas? Kurt started recording a stand-up on his phone, then headed to the Korean deli on Third Avenue to sit and upload it. Alternative worlds.

     Day after day Kurt had take the 4 or 5 train to Borough Hall in Brooklyn and walked west to the EDNY courthouse, to watch Goldman Sachs' Tim Leissner on the grill, spilling (some of) the beans about the UAE, now president of the ineffectual UN Security Council.

  But today Ukraine and Russia faced off, not only on the ground where people were dying, but in the UN system's joke of a tribunal, the International Court of Justice. These were the white wigged idiots who had recently indulged Burma's military junta in delaying the case against their genocide.

  Now media that should know better were implying this part of the UN, if not the UNSC or General Assembly, could do something about Ukraine. It couldn't, and even if it could, in Guterres' UN, it wouldn't. But Kurt would cover it anyway.

It was time for the UN to be exposed as the League of Nations that it was, only worse, with corruption and censorship thrown in. The corruption of the UAE, and of the UN which took Malaysians' money from Jho Low and never returned it, had already been exposed. But still not answered. #TheWeaselOfWallStreet.

 Kurt had first heard of Jho Low while still in the UN, before he was thrown out. Jho Low appeared at a UN press conference in front of the ubiquitous and now defiled logo. #TheWeaselOfWallStreet, 1st in a new series
