In yet another example of the deliberate disintegration of American sovereignty, the Executive has opened the door for a United Nations (UN) “Special Rapporteur” to probe–for the first time ever– human rights violations by the United States regarding affordable public housing in urban areas.
The perception that drives the investigation is first, that housing is a human right, and second, that there isn’t enough affordable public housing in urban areas in the United States. I disagree with the first premise in that it is not in our constitution, but agree with the second. However, I doubt that a UN person who has never lived here will understand the complexity of this issue in the United States.
The Special Rapporteur Raquel Rolnick has been appointed by, and is under a special mandate from the UN Human Rights Council , the successor to the UN Commission on Human Rights. As part of her ‘fact finding’ mission, she will visit New York City, Chicago, New Orleans, Los Angeles, Washington, the Pine Ridge Indian reservation in South Dakota, and Wilkes-Barre, Pa.
UN Special Rapporteurs can only visit countries that have agreed to invite them.
Amy Goodman reports that
Raquel Rolnik, a Brazilian urban planner and the UN’s choice for the task, will be investigating issues of concern to the UN vis-à-vis the United States, including public housing, homelessness and foreclosures. As part of her fact-finding mission, she will . She will then compile a report on her findings, which will be submitted to the UN General Assembly and the UN Human Rights Council in March.
Here is Ms. Rolnik speaking:
According to newsrealblog:
Now, having the UN send an investigator to the United States to report on “human rights violations” due to a perceived lack of housing availability—when it turns a blind eye to real human rights violations in places like Communist China, Sudan and Venezuela—should be enough to raise some eyebrows. But Rolnik’s impartiality is highly suspect, as she appears to have already made up her mind as to the existence of these “violations .”
Consider the following statements Rolnik made, before even beginning her “tour,” which have the same flavor as Marxist rhetoric:
- I am going to] hear the voices of those who are suffering on the ground.
- I am representing the right of adequate housing as a human right.
- Affordable housing here [in the United States] is not that affordable
- I see this mission as an opportunity to open a dialogue, to open a movement, towards the achievement and implementation of the right to adequate housing.
- We know very well that changes will come only if people organize.
Talk about bold!
This is what Obama has brought to us– he has allowed invited the United Nations’ interference inside our borders. See what the Nobel Peace Prize was awarding? This more than confirms Obama’s every move to destroy the United States.
Dilapidated Housing brought to you by Obama’s Cronies
When she gets to Chicago, I wonder if she will scrape the surface or look at the deadly results of housing projects endorsed, funded and built by Obama, Rezko, and all the Chicago cronies who took advantage of the poor to enrich themselves? Or the reasons underlying the housing issues in each of these situations, including Indian reservations?
In all of these instances, the government, in collusion with various political parties, lawyers and developers, have manipulated the system. So is the goal to blame the government, justifying its destruction? Or the capitalists? Or the racist Americans?
The root of some of this problem lies at the feet of Obama himself, and his ACORN buddies. It is Obama’s ‘legal life’ that we know of: pressuring banks to lend money to people who could not afford it. Destabilize the system. Now the taxpayers are the recipients of the grim history.
This is yet another diversionary strategy, but related: a grim report will result in world-wide calls for the overall of the American governmental system, shaming us that our Constitution didn’t include a guarantee to housing. We may have to payback our ‘failure to provide housing’ through the global housing tax, or carbon tax, or well, what is next?
