Dictators And Billionaires Demand Creation Of UN Tax Agency

global tax body

This article was written by Alex Newman and originally published at The New American

As globalist forces and the international institutions they control openly prepare to plunder humanity’s wealth, Third World dictators and tax-funded “civil society” groups have stepped up their demands for a United Nations tax authority — supposedly to ensure that they all get their “fair share” of the loot from Western taxpayers and businesses. The coalition to create the proposed UN tax regime includes more than 130 national governments and dictatorships involved in the G77, which recently demanded a “New World Order to Live Well,” along with various shadowy front groups funded by the European Union and globalist billionaires such as Bill Gates. Key elements of the plot were unsuccesful, this time, but the global-tax agenda and those pushing it are not going away any time soon — and they did manage to create “Tax Inspectors Without Borders.”

The radical proposal to further empower the UN on tax issues faced some resistance at a recent UN summit in Ethiopia aimed at extracting trillions of dollars each year from humanity to shower on dictators, global governance, and “sustainable development” schemes. However, opponents of creating the UN tax agency were hardly arguing from a principled position. Instead, they were arguing in favor of further empowering other globalist outfits, such as the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), to impose the global tax regime on humanity. That is already underway, and the differences are largely irrelevant.

But while the proposal for a full-fledged UN tax agency was defeated at the summit, global taxation apparatchiks did make some major progress moving the agenda forward. Among other schemes, delegates at the UN Financing for Development Conference in Addis Ababa last week approved a motion to have a UN Committee of Experts on International Tax Matters meet twice a year. Also unveiled at the summit by governments and globalists were “two parallel tax initiatives,” dubbed Tax Inspectors Without Borders (TIWB) and the Addis Ababa Tax Initiative. Both have major implications.

The TIWB scheme is a partnership between the UN Development Program (UNDP) and the OECD, essentially a cartel of bloated high-tax governments that aims to hike and harmonize taxes worldwide while terrorizing nations with more competitive tax systems into submission. Under the new program, announced last week in Ethiopia, Western governments will send swarms of tax “experts” to Third World regimes to help them extract more wealth more efficiently from their subjects to finance “sustainable development” and other oppression.

The UN even produced a tax-funded propaganda video on TIWB touting the supposed wonders of high taxes and Big Government — as if taxation and welfare spending, rather than free markets, relieved poverty. “Many developing countries [Third World governments] are successfully mobilizing more domestic [tax] resources for sustainable development, but progress varies,” the narrator in the video states as nice music plays in the background. “Developing countries [governments and dictators ruling over nations impoverished by their rulers] still collect far less in tax revenues than wealthier countries.”

So, to help Third World dictators and regimes further empower themselves, Western tax experts will be deployed to help confiscate more wealth from those who produce it, the video explains. The propaganda film also pretends that it is totally normal and desirable for Third World governments and dictators to control everything from the healthcare to the education of those they misrule — despite the mountains of evidence showing that markets and entrepreneurs, not programs run by governments and tyrants, are the best way to create wealth and combat poverty.

The other global tax scheme announced at the summit, dubbed the Addis Ababa Tax Initiative, also involves creating a more robust architecture for Third World rulers to extract wealth domestically. Dozens of governments and globalist organizations are participating in the scheme, including the Obama administration, the EU, along with various brutal dictatorships. “This Initiative is a Partnership in capacity building in the field of domestic revenue mobilization/taxation, in which each country takes its responsibilities, cooperates and supports each other,” declares the scheme’s “declaration.”

In other words, the Obama IRS — infamous for unlawfully persecuting political opponents of the administration and trying to cover it up by destroying the documentation and lying to Congress — will help the tax agencies of Third World dictators become more modern and efficient. One of the beneficiaries of the program will be the ruthless regime in Addis Ababa, where the scheme was unveiled, famous for persecuting journalists, murdering dissidents, kicking peasants off their land, and other state terror. The Ethiopian regime also hosts the Communist Chinese-built headquarters of the African Union, another collection of mostly brutal dictators, war lords, and terror regimes currently led by the genocidal Marxist dictator of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe.

So, while the UN and the vast majority of its member regimes failed in their goal to set up a UN tax agency, they made great progress in advancing the global tax regime. Meanwhile, the functions that the proposed UN agency would have served — creating global tax rules, smashing tax competition, and siphoning more wealth from people’s pockets to squander on “sustainability” schemes — are already well underway. As The New American has been reporting for years, much of that is being done by the OECD, which continues to plot its global taxation regime from the shadows.

From crushing the final vestiges of financial privacy rights to concocting new and improved ways to fleece businesses and individuals at the international level, OECD bureaucrats, who do not pay tax on their bloated tax-funded salaries, have been very busy. Most recently, the Paris-based cartel of bloated governments unveiled its plotting on so-called Base Erosion and Profit Shifting, or BEPS. The goal is to extract even more wealth from businesses (and ultimately consumers, investors, and workers) by writing global tax rules taking aim at legal strategies used by companies to lighten slightly the crushing tax burdens imposed by Big Government.

Also underway at the OECD is a plan, modeled on Obama’s draconian and wildly unconstitutional FATCA regime, to automatically gather and share people’s most private financial information with governments and dictators worldwide. A dizzying array of schemes pushed by OECD and other globalist outfits is similarly  aiming to harmonize tax regimes around the world in preparation, ultimately, for a global tax paid directly to self-styled international authorities.” The UN and its minions have been working fiendishly — and out in the open — to start implementing direct taxes for many years. But first, the groundwork must be laid.

Aside from Third World dictators, one of the primary forces pushing to empower a UN tax agency was the European Network on Debt and Development (Eurodad). Despite being falsely painted as a so-called (non-governmental) civil society group, most of the outfit’s funding comes from European taxpayers through the EU, with most of the rest coming from billionaire globalists. “Eurodad is funded by its [largely tax-funded] members (about one third of its budget), by the European Commission, and by private foundations such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation,” the outfit admits on its website.

In countless misleading propaganda articles published by the establishment media, spokespeople for the group made their case for creating a full-fledged UN tax agency to oversee a global taxation regime. “Our global tax decision-making system is anything but democratic, excluding more than half of the world’s nations,” Eurodad’s Tove Maria Ryding was quoted as saying, without explaining how empowering the UN dictators club — think Kim Jong Un, Robert Mugabe, Raul Castro, Omar Bashir, and more — would make anything more democratic. “This is not only unfair, it’s also one of the key reasons why multinational corporations can keep dodging taxes.”

It was not immediately clear which companies she believed were “dodging taxes,” or whether she was referring to legal strategies to minimize the tax burden or actual tax evasion. However, conflating the two has become popular among tax-funded global-tax advocates and Big Government mongers. Various UN agencies and bureaucrats have thrown out wild estimates claiming that Third World regimes are losing up to $100 billion in tax revenues every year due to profit shifting and other legal tax avoidance plans. The implication, of course, is that the capital would be better in the hands of oppressive Third World regimes that have impoverished and often slaughtered the people they rule, rather than in the hands of the businesses that produce goods and services — and provide jobs — for those same people.

With strong support from the Obama administration, UN leadership, the EU, Communist China, and globalist forces worldwide, the scheme to create a UN tax agency — and ultimately a UN tax paid directly to the UN — is not going away. But if freedom, national sovereignty, and prosperity are going to survive into the future, humanity must become educated on the threat so it can be effectively resisted. The UN is dangerous and out-of-control already. Now imagine what it could do with its own independent revenue streams.

  1. It really does not matter. The UN can never be the “boss” of our nation, it must destroy us first.

    WE the people created our own sovereignty when we broke away and created our own nation. We created the states, the general (federal) government and WE delegated certain, specific, and put-into-writing authorization for how OUR part of the world is going to run.

    We are NOT under, nor do we owe any loyalty to the UN whose creation was for the purpose of NWO, One World government, not world peace.

    Those people who are supporting these moves to put the USA under any other sovereignty – entity or nation – are *Traitors, and they are the **”revolutionaries”, even domestic enemies of the USA, but they are NOT ‘THE’ government.

    All of you, get it straight, the people WHO SERVE WITHIN our governments, whatever the position they occupy, are NOT THE government. They are the workers, the employees, etc – and it matters not how they got the position – elected, hired, contracted, etc.

    It is time to understand that aq lot of those people who are “serving” us within OUR governments are not just domestic enemies of the USA, but they NO longer have ANY LAWFUL authority. Not one of those elected, assigned a position, not one of those who serve within the multitude of bureaucracies, not the LE’s, not the US Military (If there is one anymore) because those that did not actively work against the USA, the American people, and the US Constitution did nothing when their very position and Oath requires them to stop the domestic enemies and traitors. Why not?

    Because they were NOT put into office by the People, because they are not following the US Constitution and state Constitutions as “We the people” required IF they wanted to serve within our governments. Most things they have done/do are done under “color of law”, pretend laws/regulations, etc created by and with the misuse of power that is only made possible because wrongdoer is “clothed” with authority of state (government). Because they did not do the duty as the US Constitution (contract, definer, and supreme law) required of them.

    LE’s, you ONLY have lawful authority when you are a strict constitutionalist. That is the requirement and the contract that is highest, bound by your personal Oath to do so. If you cannot do the job lawfully in the manner the US Constitution requires, then you cannot do the job, which is funny, because those that used to serve within those positions were quite able to do so.

    US Military (IF there are any left that are not the UN Military) you are only lawful here within the USA when the congress calls you up and has already/or is going to declare War. No one else was delegated that authority.

    But because YOU are trained as the congress requires for the Military, when not following the orders of Traitors, and if you leave the Military, then YOU ARE THE “well regulated Militia”, AND YES, IT IS A PAYING POSITION, though not a full-time position regularly except for the trainers, those who keep track of supplies, etc and those who do regular patrols, and some officers.

    You would then actually be protecting the USA, the US Constitution, the American people, our borders, etc as the duties constitutionally assigned to the Militia are to:
    — Enforce the US Constitution and each state’s Constitution,
    — Enforce and keep the “Laws of the Union” (which are constitutional laws ONLY),
    — Protect the country against all enemies both domestic and foreign, and
    — “to suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions”.

    But as long as you serve within the governmental apparatus YOU can NEVER be the Militia.

    LE’s, you are the next closest trained in the manner which congress requires of the US military, and would soonest be up to par and you ARE NEEDED because those that served within the military were not trained in the ways of handling domestic matters, and both of you need those that know the US Constitution to assist in making the change to a REAL Constitutional government, to replace the domestic enemies and Traitors serving within our governments – state and federal, and to get our borders back under control (to suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions”) – and no, the approval of any who “serve” within our governments are NOT needed to do so.

    Dr. Vieira said it best here.

    Dr. Edwin Vieira: “This has nothing to do with personalities or subjective ideas. It’s a matter of what the Constitution provides…

    The government of the United States has never violated anyone’s constitutional rights…
    The government of the United States will never violate anyone constitutional rights, because it cannot violate anyone’s constitutional rights.

    The reason for that is: The government of the United States is that set of actions by public officials that are consistent with the Constitution. Outside of its constitutional powers, the government of the United States has no legitimacy. It has no authority; and, it really even has no existence. It is what lawyers call A LEGAL FICTION. (caps are mine)

    … the famous case Norton v. Shelby County… The Court said: “An unconstitutional act is not a law; it confers no rights; it imposes no duties. It is, in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed.”

    And that applies to any (and all) governmental action outside of the Constitution…”
    What are the defining characteristics of a limited government? They are its disabilities; what it does not have legal authority to do.

    Look at the First Amendment… What does it do? It guarantees freedom of speech, freedom of press, freedom of religion.

    But how does it do that? I quote: “Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech or of the press” etcetera. “Congress shall make no law;” that’s a statement of an absence of power. That’s a statement of a disability.” (end quote)

    Basically those that serve within our governments have NOT been doing their duty, not been following their contract (not the subcontracts that are within each type of. What this means is that we have people who are near some very destructive things that are really NOT SERVING WITHIN OUR GOVERNMENT. They are doing things in other countries and here at home in our name for which they have NO LEGITIMATE authority.

    THEY have to be replaced with those that will abide by the US Constitution. So you will be lawfully defending our nation, our LEGITIMATE government by replacing those DOMESTIC ENEMIES AND TRAITORS TO the American people, the US Constitution, the USA with people who are willing, even eager, to have a lawful government back into place so that we can go on with the “American experiment” and show the world that the people CAN, and are willing to, govern themselves and take responsibility for those who are put into positions to SERVE WITHIN our governments.

    President Andrew Johnson: “Outside of the Constitution we have no legal authority more than private citizens, and within it we have only so much as that instrument gives us. This broad principle limits all our functions and applies to all subjects.”

    John Adams, A Defense of the Constitutions of the United States 475: “To suppose arms in the hands of citizens, to be used at individual discretion, except in private self-defense, or by partial orders of towns, countries or districts of a state, is to demolish every constitution, and lay the laws prostrate, so that liberty can be enjoyed by no man; it is a dissolution of the government. The fundamental law of the militia is, that it be created, directed and commanded by the laws, and ever for the support of the laws.”

    Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist Papers 28: “The militia is a voluntary force not associated or under the control of the States except when called out; [when called into actual service] a permanent or long standing force would be entirely different in make-up and call.”

    YOU should be now see that YOU ARE desperately NEEDED BY YOUR COUNTRY. Become the Militia and start working FOR your country.

    Please.

    Who would be your “boss”?

    The US Constitution, the state Constitution and the laws that are in Pursuance of the US Constitution, occasionally various officers. They do not change on an almost daily basis so in many respects it will be an easier job do do. Sometimes you will be called into action to serve within your state by your governor, some times to serve in defense of the nation IF the congress calls for your service – yes, the US President will be the Commander in Chief if that happens. But you will NOT be “owned” by the President.

    Daniel Webster: “We may be tossed upon an ocean where we can see no land – nor, perhaps, the sun or stars. But there is a chart and a compass for us to study, to consult, and to obey. That chart is the Constitution.”

    I believe what happens in our nation in a VERY large part depends on those of you who serve and served within the US military and as LE’s. You swore to support and defend your nation. Are you ready to actually do so instead of doing the business of the UN, banking, corporations, foreign nations, etc?

    Some thoughts to ponder if one wants to.

    John Adams: “According to a story in Herodotus, the nature of monarchy, aristocracy, and democracy, and the advantages and inconveniences of each, were as well understood at the time of the neighing of the horse of Darius, as they are at this hour. A variety of mixtures of these simple species were conceived and attempted, with different success, by the Greeks and Romans. Representations, instead of collections, of the people — a total separation of the executive from the legislative power, and of the judicial from both — and a balance in the legislature, by three independent, equal branches — are perhaps the three only discoveries in the constitution of a free government, since the institution of Lycurgus….

    Even these have been so unfortunate, that they have never spread: the first has been given up by all the nations, excepting one, who had once adopted it; and the other two, reduced to practice, if not invented, by the English nation, have never been imitated by any other except their own descendants in America. While it would be rash to say, that nothing further can be done to bring a free government, in all its parts, still nearer to perfection — the representations of the people are most obviously susceptible of improvement. The end to be aimed at, in the formation of a representative assembly, seems to be the sense of the people, the public voice: the perfection of the portrait consists in its likeness. Numbers, or property, or both, should be the rule; and the proportions of electors and members an affair of calculation. The duration should not be so long that the deputy should have time to forget the opinions of his constituents. CORRUPTION IN ELECTIONS IS THE GREAT ENEMY OF FREEDOM. Among the provisions to prevent it, more frequent elections, and a more general privilege of voting, are not all that might be devised. Dividing the districts, diminishing the distance of travel, and confining the choice to residents, would be great advances towards the annihilation of corruption…

    The modern aristocracies of Holland, Venice, Berne, &c. have tempered themselves with innumerable multitudes of checks, by which they have given a great degree of stability to that form of government: and though liberty and life can never be there enjoyed so well as in a free republic, none is perhaps more capable of profound sagacity. We shall learn to prize the checks and balances of a free government, and even those of the modern aristocracies, if we recollect the miseries of Greece which arose from their ignorance of them. The only balance attempted against the ancient kings was a body of nobles; and the consequences were perpetual altercations of rebellion and tyranny, and butcheries of thousands upon every revolution from one to the other. When the kings were abolished, the aristocracies tyrannized; and then no balance was attempted but between aristocracy and democracy. This, in the nature of things, could be no balance at all, and therefore the pendulum was for ever on the swing…

    The people in America have now the best opportunity, and the greatest trust, in their hands, that Providence ever committed to so small a number, since the transgression of the first pair: if they betray their trust, their guilt will merit even greater punishment than other nations have suffered, and the indignation of heaven. If there is one certain truth to be collected from the history of all ages, it is this: That the people’s rights and liberties, and the democratical mixture in a constitution, can never be preserved without a strong executive, or, in other words, without separating the executive power from the legislative. If the executive power, or any considerable part of it, is left in the hands either of an aristocratical or a democratical assembly, it will corrupt the legislature as necessarily as rust corrupts iron, or as arsenic poisons the human body; and when the legislature is corrupted the people are undone.
    The rich, the well-born, and the able, acquire an influence among the people, that will soon be too much for simple honesty and plain sense, in a house of representatives. The most illustrious of them must therefore be separated from the mass, and placed by themselves in a senate: this is, to all honest and useful intents, an ostracism. A member of a senate, of immense wealth, the most respected birth, and transcendent abilities, has no influence in the nation, in comparison of what he would have in a single representative assembly…

    The United States of America have exhibited, perhaps, the first example of governments erected on the simple principles of nature: and if men are now sufficiently enlightened to disabuse themselves of artifice, imposture, hypocrisy, and superstition, they will consider this event as an æra in their history. Although the detail of the formation of the American governments is at present little known or regarded either in Europe or America, it may hereafter become an object of curiosity. It will never be pretended that any persons employed in that service had any interviews with the gods, or were in any degree under the inspiration of heaven, any more than those at work upon ships or houses, or labouring in merchandize or agriculture: it will for ever be acknowledged that these governments were contrived merely by the use of reason and the senses…

    Thirteen governments thus founded on the natural authority of the people alone, without a pretence of miracle or mystery, which are destined to spread over the northern part of that whole quarter of the globe, are a great point gained in favour of the rights of mankind. The experiment is made, and has completely succeeded: it can no longer be called in question, whether authority in magistrates, and obedience of citizens, can be grounded on reason, morality, and the Christian religion, without the monkery of priests, or the knavery of politicians. As the writer was personally acquainted with most of the gentlemen in each of the states, who had the principal share in the first draughts, the following letters were really written to lay before the gentleman to whom they are addressed, a specimen of that kind of reading and reasoning which produced the American constitutions…

    If Cicero and Tacitus could revisit the earth, and learn that the English nation had reduced the great idea to practice, and brought it nearly to perfection, by giving each division a power to defend itself by a negative; had found it the most solid and durable government, as well as the most free; had obtained, by means of it, a prosperity among civilized nations, in an enlightened age, like that of the Romans among barbarians: and that the Americans, after having enjoyed the benefits of such a constitution a century and a half, were advised by some of the greatest philosophers and politicians of the age to renounce it, and set up the governments of ancient Goths and modern Indians — what would they say? That the Americans would be more reprehensible than the Cappadocians, if they should listen to such advice…

    There is a great hazard in saying all this of John Milton; but truth, and the rights of mankind, demand it. In his “Ready and Easy Way to establish a Free Commonwealth,” this great author says, “I doubt not but all ingenuous and knowing men will easily agree with me, that a free commonwealth, without single person, or house of lords, is by far the best government, if it can be had; for the ground and basis of every just and free government, is a general council of ablest men chosen by the people to consult of public affairs, from time to time, for the common good. In this grand council must the sovereignty, not transferred, but delegated only, and, as it were, deposited, reside; with this caution, they must have the forces by sea and land committed to them for preservation of the common peace and liberty; must raise and manage the public revenue, at least with some inspectors deputed for satisfaction of the people how it is employed; must make or propose civil laws, treat of commerce, peace, or war with foreign nations; and, for the carrying on some particular affairs with more secrecy and expedition, must elect, as they have already, out of their own number and others, a council of state.” (end quote)
