I just finished reading a GREAT new book: The Beast on the East River: The UN Threat to America’s Sovereignty and Security, by Nathan Tabor (published by Nelson Current).
This is a book that will change you. For example, I now believe in black helicopters.
From NRAnews.com and Wayne LaPierre’s recent book, “The Global War on Your Guns” (same publisher), and in particular from watching the televised debate between Wayne LaPierre and Rebecca Peters of IANSA, I already appreciated the emerging threat the UN poses to gunowners.
But black helicopters? No one wants to be accused of “black helicopter thinking!” That implies a belief that globalists plot to impose one-world government, including the military apparatus necessary for such government.
Well, it turns out I am in very good company as a “black helicopter thinker.” Walter Cronkite (“America’s anchorman,” the “most trusted man in America”) went on record advocating world government (including requisite police and standing army) while at the UN accepting an award from the World Federalist Association in 1999. Cronkite does not merely believe such globalists exist; he appears to actually be one, which is news to a lot of us who grew up with him “objectively” covering our news.
But does a force of “black helicopters” (permanent UN military force) actually exist beyond the planning stage?
Yes, that’s the way it is, according to Nathan Tabor’s seismically significant book. The Multinational Stand-by High Readiness Brigade for United Nations Operations (SHIRBRIG), the first permanent UN military force in history, was mobilized secretly in 1997 and kept quiet until media learned of a secret $200,000 donation made as “backdoor support” by the US State Department. Countries initially pledging to send troops included Canada, Denmark, Austria, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, and Sweden. Operational headquarters were established in Copenhagen. SHIRBRIG became fully operational in 2000 with about 5000 troops, and a potential pool of 147,500 troops pledged from 88 countries. Both Clinton and the UN denied there was any standing army. While the denial was perhaps technically correct, SHIRBRIG was at least the functional equivalent of a standing army since all command and control systems and logistical infrastructure were in place and the troops needed to be merely “plugged in.”
Moreover, new plans supported by Bush will create a permanent UN force of 75,000 in Africa.
The Beast on the East River: The UN Threat to America’s Sovereignty and Security is a well-researched primer on UN organizational structure and its most nefarious activities. It makes a very complicated subject understandable. The book is a good read and an essential resource for any patriot’s library. No matter what your main issue is, the nonsense (norm changing) side of it is probably being pushed by the UN or affiliated “transnationalists.” Things make a lot more sense after reading this book.
A few highlights of what is documented in The Beast:
- Rape and murder of women and children, prostitution rings, human trafficking, and other atrocities, almost everywhere UN peacekeepers operate.
- Shocking UN facilitation of genocide of 800,000 Tutsis (mostly by clubs and machetes) in Rwanda; sale of arms to Hutus by Egypt’s foreign minister under Boutros-Ghali; elevation of Boutros-Ghali to UN Secretary-General; urgent cable from UN Force Commander in Rwanda, General Romeo Dallaire, requesting permission to defend Tutsis who sought refuge in UN compounds; denial by then-head of UN peacekeeping operations Kofi Annan despite capability to defend easily with troops in place; Kofi Annan’s promotion to UN Secretary-General.
