UN Guterres Rents UN Flag to UAE & Trammo as Firm Sued By Puerto Rico for MTBE

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC-Guardian UK - Honduras - NY Mag Song

UN GATE, Oct 15 – As he slowly kills the UN, Antonio Guterres has failed on Ukraine at every stage.

He assured that there would be no invasion, then through Melissa Fleming's Department of Global Communications ordered UN officials to not call it an invasion or a war. UN DGC email here.

After behind chided, below, Guterres tried to get back in the game through food. He's now trying to raise money for commodities firm Trammo, involved in litigation in US courts - and to give the UAE, which illegally used Tom Barrack in the US in a case Guterres won't comment on, a role, see below.

Trammo's general counsel spins without being challenged or even questioned: Louis Epstein, Trammo’s senior vice president & general counsel, claimed to a turtle that Trammo “does not know the current status of the talks” and “is waiting to hear.” But how were they selected?

  Notably, Trammo has been sued by Puerto Rico for polluting its waters with methyl teriary butyl (MTBE), in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York which Inner City Press covers daily since been banned from the UN by Guterres.

  In another SDNY case Inner City Press has been covering, Trammo is said to be "concealing trading losses from the outside world by maintaining two separate sets of books." On what authority is Guterre selling the UN flag and what's left of its name to this commodities trader?

And why bring in the UAE, currently being exposed in EDNY court in a trial Inner City Press is covering as having recruited and paid Tom Barrack to illegally lobby in the US?

October vlog First Avenue vlog here.

 On October 6 the US Mission to the UN in a private "background" briefing not even announced through normal State Department channels hid behind Guterres, and previews action in UNGA, from which Csaba Korosi not only bans Press, but also refuses to disclose who pays his staff, which it would promised PGAs would do after John Ashe was indicted, and Sam Kutesa exposed, in the SDNY.

  From the "background" transcript, with only four questions including Qatar state media: "as Ambassador Thomas-Greenfield promised, we’re going to continue to pursue accountability at the United Nations in the General Assembly" - from which they allow the Press to be banned.

Predictably and some would say intentionally, Guterres got played. Because he's spend six years (so far) calling Putin papacito. Week 21 song here; Week 22 song (on Odesa) here.

 Week 23 song (on POWs) here.

   Week 33 song (including Trammo) here.

 Today's UN is worse that the League of Nations, which never had personnel raping children in Africa and Haiti and then flying home with impunity, while the head man and his censor (here, Melissa Fleming) ban the Press that asks what is being done for the Organization's victims. Banned Inner City Press will have more on this, as well.
