UN Guterres Spoon Fed His Halibut to Century Fund Propagandist Schlesinger Censoring Press on Cameroon CEFC

By Matthew Russell Lee, CJR PFT NYP

UNITED NATIONS GATE, March 5 –How corrupt has Antonio Guterres made the UN? After roughing up and banning Inner City Press as it asked about his failure to disclose his links to UN briber CEFC China Energy and failure on Cameroon, on March 5 when he refused Press questions on Cameroon, Saudi Arabia, UN sexual abuse, Japan, China abuse and his own censorship, Guterres had the day prior spent public money to spin unnamed correspondents, one of whom Stephen Schlesinger later gushed: "I attended a fascinating off-the-record lunch today with UN Sec-Gen Antonio Guterrez, along with a few other journalists." Photo here; Dutch Ambassador Karel von Oosterom, who has withheld every single document about Cameroon from Inner City Press under the WOB, retweeted it. On the morning of March 5, Inner City Press in writing asked Guterres, his deputy Amina J. Mohammed, Alison Smale and spokesman Stephane Dujarric, "Please immediately state who, with public funds, the SG invited to eat halibut with him on March 4, and why it was not on his public schedule. Please state whether the UN considers "The Century Fund" to be a media and if so, why - and, AGAIN, immediately explain how it is legitimate to ban from enter into the UN the media that has been asking about these and other questions, with no hearing or appeal." Nine hours later, nothing at all. And so we look at this Stephen Schlesinger, considered by Guterres to be a journalist while Guterres roughs up and bans Inner City Press which just on March 5 wrote about UNIS, the UN Staff Union, Cameroon, etc. Here's what Stephen Schlesinger has been putting out, more opinionated than Inner City Press' new and ongoing question of who has been at the trough of Guterres' halibut: "Donald J. Trump Your entire campaign — and everybody in it — were riddled with Russian connections.. More Trump repeated all the old right-wing  charges against Democrats — caravans, partisan investigations, criminal abortion, socialism, Iran’s mayhem, etc. So much for Trump’s call for unity.. I don’t believe a single one of his statistics @realDonaldTrump ... Please stop talking. You are an idiot.Stephen Schlesinger added.... He’d get killed politically for shutting down the government a second time.Stephen Schlesinger added... Hewitt is an idiot. After one hundred and fifty years of US intervention in Latin America, getting us involved in yet another debacle south of the border will hardly unite Americans— instead  Mr Hewitt, do you know the words “divide”, “anger”, “enrage” Americans. They apply here!... Is she still around?Stephen Schlesinger added, Charles P. Pierce Verified account   @CharlesPPierce It’s a sad day in the Twitterverse when you discover you’ve been blocked by Michelle Malkin.' And that's just 2019. The UN of Guteres and Smale and Dujarric is CORRUPT. Now the question is, who were these "other journalists" who ate Guterres' halibut apparently without asking about his failure on Cameroon, or UN corruption, or his censorship? Guterres' published schedule for March 4 had only two appoints, neither of which was this publicly funded spoon fed lunch. There was been no answer from the attendee "Stephen Schlesinger @cannon367 Fellow at the Century Foundation @tcfdotorg" - but who were they? Watch this site. We'll have more on this - and on Cameroon: after Paul Biya who has ruled Cameroon for 36 years on January 28 had his opponent Maurice Kamto arrested, Inner City Press again asked UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and his spokesmen for their comment and action, if any. This came after Guterres had Inner City Press roughed up on 3 July 2018 after it interviewed Biya's Ambassador about the two men's Budget Committee deals and banned from the UN since - Guterres even tried to get Inner City Press banned from the Park East Synagogue, here, which was denied / dodged by his spokesman Stephane Dujarric. On March 1 after the Nigerian federal high court sitting in Abuja declared illegal and unconstitutional the deportation of Ayuk Tabe and 46 others from Nigeria to Cameroon in January 2018, Dujarric who refuses questions from Inner City Press he has banned took a fake question from one of his favorites, who said "Anglophones did some shooting" - and said NOTHING about the new ruling. The refoulement took place with Guterres' Deputy SG Amina J. Mohammed there, and joining in censorship since. We'll have more on this, and this:  Azanwuli Chikere, a member of the panel which heard the case, said the Nigeria federal government lacks the power to deport refugees and asylum seekers from Nigeria. Ruling on an application filed by Femi Falana, human rights lawyer, the court awarded N5 million damages to each of the applicant and also ordered the government to ensure the Cameroonians are brought back to Nigeria.  Among those deported were Julius Tabe, Nfor Nfor, Fidelis Che, Henry Kimeng, Awasum, Cornelius Kwanga, Tassang Wilfred, Eyambe Elias, Ojong Okongho and Nalowa Bih. Amid Guterres' shameful silence, in Cameroon opposition leader Maurice Kamto on February 27 argued he cannot be tried in a military court - the UN seems fine with this - while supporters were held over in Kondengui prison until at least March 19. Meanwhile Guterres' UN system and affiliates, in a system that like a fish rots from the head, lavish praise and money on Paul Biya as he burns villages and takes untold money to his hotel in Geneva.  More here.
