UN Rubber Stamps Corrupt Budget Stealing US Funds as Guterres and Korosi Ban Press

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon

UNGATE, Dec 30 – How useless is today's United Nations? They couldn't even vote on December 23 on taking (largely stealing) the billions of dollars from US taxpayers and others.  But on December 30, they did.

It was chaired by UN PGA Csaba Korosi, who banned Inner City Press from his Civil Society Town Hall, after his spokesperson told Inner City Press it could appeal to USG Gilles Michaud, who has yet to respond.

On the afternoon of December 30 in the UN basement where Inner City Press reported on these deals until it was ousted and banned, dysfunctional objections were made about funding for mandates in Syria, Ethiopia and Palestine - Israel said it wouldn't speak and US would vote no; it spoke, and US abstained and praised the UN.

  More US gushing: Ambassador Chris Lu at AmbUNReform tweeted, "And just like that: UN budget has been adopted by Fifth Committee and will go to General Assembly One key reform adopted is moving to an annual budget on a permanent basis. It’s a critical reform that furthers transparency and accountability."

But today's UN displays neither, and the US Mission of Lu and Linda Thomas-Greenfield has done nothing about US-based investigative media Inner City Press being banned by Antonio Guterres.

In the GA, there was Portugal, bloviating (video here)

There was Japen, representive advertising the New York Giants of football, but Japan Mission not responded to Inner City Press' request for access to its Ambassador Ishikane Kimihiro's January 3 press conference as president of the Security Council.

None of the documents were available to the public, as billions of dollars were being taken. It was to resume at 6 pm.

These are the budget meetings Inner City Press used to cover and expose, in person, until corrupt UNSG Antonio Guterres had it roughed up and thrown out while it covered the budget negotiations in 2018. 

 Now no one covers it, which is how the UN likes it. But they still can't agree how to steal. UNPGA Csaba Korosi, who banned Inner City Press from his December 2 "Civil Society Town Hall," issued a lame speech, cravenly promoted by colonial Belgium's mission to the UN.

  Inner City Press' December 5 appeal of being banned, sent just as Korosi's spokesperson Paulina Kubiak told it to, has not even been acknowledge.

Today's UN is totally corrupt. And Inner City Press will stay on it, insisting its appeal be granted, and either way reporting on the UN's corruption. Watch this site.
