UN Guterres Back from Cuba Bans Press from GA while Bemoans Charter Keeps Him in NY

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

UN GATE, Sept 13 – The annual ritual of the UN General Assembly week is getting more and more wan under Antonio Guterres.

  After for a second week he spent public money flying and lying from India to Cuba, on September 13 he took pre-picked questions from state media, delivering a punch line for China (that in excluding all Taiwanese from the building, he is following the GA on which he has no view$). 

 In another staged question, Guterres had the UN must stay in New York because the Charter says so. He lives tax free in a mansion on Sutton Place. Video here. Meanwhile at UNESCO's ghoulish confab in Saudi Arabia, fresh from slaughtering refugees in the desert, look what's up for enshrinement: "Portugal The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation Head Office and Garden 1659 D (i)(ii)(iv)(vi)."

  This Gulbenkian Foundation paid Guterres cold hard cash, while trying to sell its oil company to convicted bribery firm CEFC China Energy. Inner City Press, which coverd CEFC's conviction in Federal court, asked about the omission of this money from Guterres' financial disclosure and was roughed up and banned, and remains so from UNGA 2023.

In 2023 not only Xi of China and Russia's Putin for obvious reasons isn't coming - even French president Macron, and the UK's not-for-long prime minister are blowing it off.

That's four out of the five Permanent Members of the Security Council, those who on paper benefit most from the decaying UN, not bother to come. Guterres is lying about reform, including of the "international financial architecture."

Only Biden is coming - and the US is the country watching as Guterres hands post after post to China, while concealing his financial links to its convicted bribery firm CEFC China Energy, and banning Inner City Press which uncovered and asked about it. 

 The schedule released on September 1 still listed the "head of state" of Gabon, Ali Bongo, who pleading for (and receiving Guterres' useless) support to keep his family in power for another year after fifty.

Inner City Press on June 19 applied to Guterres' censoring sidekick Melissa Fleming for access to UNGA week, which she gives to countless blood-splattered state media of Saudi Arabia, Iran and even Cameroon.

No answers, even as the supposed September 1 deadline and now September 11 passed. The UN's time has passed. Watch this site.
