US Secretary Blinken Appears To Praise Honduras While EDNY Prosecutes JOH Brother Will Fail on UN Too?

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

UN GATE / SDNY, Feb 19 - While Honduras' president's brother is awaiting sentencing for narco trafficking in the SDNY court in New York, today new US Secretary of State Antony Blinken issued a rosy read out about and with Honduras, below. This while he and his incomding UN Ambassador have yet to reverse the UN's censorship of independent American Press by the the United Nations.

The UN, its unaccountable senior leadership and sychophantic press corps all seem pleased by the nomination of perceived supporters to represent the US from January 20 on.

Witness the canned Q&A in the UN noon briefing of November 23, which again banned Inner City Press - and its questions about UN corruption and sexual abuse, Cameroon, Honduras and other UN failures, here.  

Inner City Press before corrupt UNSG Antonio Guterres had it thrown out without due process or appeal covered not only the UN and its "Peacekeeping" missions in Haiti and elsewhere, but also Antony Blinken (here, meeting Prince Zeid) and Linda Thomas-Greenfield (here, after a trip to Somalia; Inner City Press covered the UN Security Council trip to Djibouti).  

 Now on February 11, while Guterres tries to blot out any challenge to an UNmerited second term, this troubling read-out of Secretary Blinken on and with Honduras, hopefully to be followed by some accountability or transparency: "Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken spoke with Honduran Foreign Minister Lisandro Rosales today. Secretary Blinken emphasized our commitment to working with Honduras to address the structural problems that lead people to migrate – corruption and lack of respect for human rights, lack of economic opportunity, and insecurity. They discussed continued U.S. government support for Honduras as it responds to the COVID-19 pandemic and recovers from the devastation caused by Hurricanes Eta and Iota. Secretary Blinken noted the strong bonds between the people of our two countries and reaffirmed our commitment to the bilateral relationship." What about the conviction of the president's brother in EDNY, and the mounting information about CC-4, JOH?

 So would it be the case that Blinken and Thomas-Greenfield would cast a blind eye at UN censorship

and lack of accountability, from Cameroon to the banning of the Press that asks? Watch this site.
