In LOL News, UN Declares Itself 'Trusted' COVID News Source, Vows to 'Combat Dangerous Misinformation'

The United Nations has hooked up with the World Economic Forum and announced a global COVID news service with the goal of establishing “new social norms” that “combat dangerous misinformation.” I know what you’re thinking but stay with me — it gets worse.


As Breitbart reported on Thursday, the two globalist organizations are concerned that social media is spreading disinformation about the virus, and have thus anointed themselves trusted worldwide watchdogs of what constitutes “fake news” and what does not.

Let me begin with this. The words “trusted” and “United Nations” should never be used in the same sentence — unless “trusted” is directly proceeded by “should never be.”

Melissa Fleming, chief of global communications for the United Nations, said COVID isn’t just a public health emergency;  it’s a “communication crisis” as well.

“When COVID-19 emerged, it was clear from the outset this was not just a public health emergency, but a communications crisis as well. We’re trying to create this new social norm called ‘pause – take care before you share.’ We’re equipping people, through this new social norm, with a bit of ‘information skepticism’.”

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres previously encouraged people to seek out “wrong think,” while pushing a #PledgetoPause initiative on Twitter in late October.


To that end, Fleming has launched “Verified,” where people can sign up for daily emails on the latest COVID news that comes from  “reliable” sources: “science-based information.”

I assume we’re talking about the same kind of “reliable” “science-based information” on which climate-alarmist Al Gore relied in 1999 when he declared a 75 percent chance that the Arctic could be ice-free in 5-7 years. Update: the zillionaire global-warming hustler’s ridiculous prediction didn’t age well at all.

Listen, I don’t want to get too far ahead, here, but, when you have lunatics running around calling for climate “deniers” to be prosecuted, excuse me if I’m already a bit skeptical.

So where does one begin?

Who died and left the United Nations — of all organizations on the planet — the arbiter of what is disinformation and what is not? These are the same people who have passed resolution after resolution of condemnation against Israel, and as I recall, exactly zero against Palestinian terrorist organization Hezbollah and Lebanon-based Hamas.

As reported by the World Economic Forum in a piece titled There’s no vaccine for the infodemic – so how can we combat the virus of misinformation?, the U.N. is encouraging social media influencers to help spread “real news about the pandemic” — which it claims it has been recruiting by the tens of thousands to spread “real news” that the world body itself has deems necessary, according to Fleming. Let that sink in.


“So far, we’ve recruited 110,000 information volunteers, and we equip these information volunteers with the kind of knowledge about how misinformation spreads and ask them to serve as kind of ‘digital first-responders’ in those spaces where misinformation travels.”

Chilling? You bet. Consider the following.

As reported by Breitbart in March, the Chinese Communist Party not only declared that COVID-19 did not originate in Wuhan, calling “hurtful” U.S.allegations to the contrary to be “bald-faced racism and xenophobia”; it claimed “further evidence” suggested that “the virus originated in the U.S.”

And guess what? That steaming pile of lies was directly supported by both the United Nations and the World Health Organization — another bastion of international “integrity.”

Same U.N. and same secretary-general who in February called on the world to “urgently redistribute power,” to end so-called “gender inequality” — which “should shame us all in the 21st century because it is not only unacceptable, it is stupid.”


What is “stupid” is Guterres not just coming out and admitting exactly what the United Nations advocates, and has advocated for years: massive global wealth redistribution in its continuing battle against “global inequality.” Which incidentally is backed by globalist Barack Obama and other American leftists.

The same goal is the core of U.N.’s “climate change” plan, as Ottmar Edenhofer, former co-chair of the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, brazenly admitted several years ago.

“One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with the environmental policy anymore […]. We redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.”

Even a shallow dive into the “sacred” — as viewed by The Left — Paris Climate Accord makes the wealth-redistribution goal abundantly clear that Donald Trump was right in 2017 when he called the agreement “massive redistribution of United States wealth” and he’s right about it today.


I have never belonged to the tinfoil hat brigade of conspiratorialists and I never will.

But it doesn’t take wingnut Alex Jones to concoct another harebrained theory to see exactly what’s going on here. As we witnessed in the presidential election, the real threat to America — and not just our presidential elections — lies in Big Tech’s ability to censor and suppress news of its choosing. Toss in the corrupt United Nations and all bets are off.
