Day After Biden Speech in COVID Positive UNGA US Defers on Bid to End Korean War, Pitches UNSC Climate

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Podcast
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 22 – The day after US President Joe Biden gave his rambling speech in the UN General Assembly Hall for which no proof of vaccination was required (a Brazilian diplomat then tested positive for COVID, something covered-up by UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres), on September 2d US Department of State held a press call, by self-described Senior State Department Officials.

  Among the questions was for the State Department's position on South Korean President Moon's proposal that the Korean War be declared over. The (VOA) questioner added that Pentagon spokesman Kirby had said the US is open to it - but does he speak for the whole Administration? This question was deemed off-topic. There were so few questions they called on a UN in-house correspondent who has done NOTHING about the UN roughing up and banning Inner City Press.

The focus was on a climate change meeting of the UN Security Council, whose presidency this month, Ireland, has refused to answer Inner City Press' written questions on Cameroon, Nigeria and UN Peacekeepers' rapes. Here is Secretary Blinken's participation in the UN Security Council open debate on climate and security scheduleed for September 23 - unless NYC closes the UNGA down.

 (In the downtown Manhattan courthouses which Inner City Press covers daily while banned from the UN, Judge Larry Love on September 22 lifted his TRO on the City's vaccine mandate).

And what about Guterres and his (American) head of media accreditation banning Inner City Press and others, in favor of a small group of disproportionately state media and retirees?  Podcast here.

 Inner City Press wrote to the State Department and US Mission to the UN in August about this, well in advance of the UNGA High Level week. It cited the law firm Quinn Emanuel's letter to the UN and its partners, video here 

But no action, even as Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield on September 20 gave a speech about sexual violence, another issue on which Guterres covers up the UN's abuses.  

Barks-Ruggles declined to say if Blinken will try to meet with his French counter-part; on Iran she said the UN will stick with the Vienna format. There was almost nothing about Africa, much less Cameroon and Nigeria or the coup in Guinea, nor about Haiti.

But Inner City Press will continue to pursue all these issues - watch this site.
