Paul Martin’s mentor has an agenda. It’s not secret. He wants the United Nations to have an independent army. With guns. So they might go anywhere they’re needed. Like Canadian cities. In Canada. With guns. Why? Because Paul Martin’s mentor believes that industrial civilization is destroying the planet. He believes people have to change. Or else. He has admitted fantasizing about holding the world’s leaders hostage in order to force such change. He also believes that if a few billion of the world’s population were wiped out, that would be a “ray of hope.” Means we could start again. With people like him in charge. Paul Martin listens to this man. I’m not making this up …

Welcome back Maurice Strong. Just in time for the election.
Last Friday’s arrest of Korean businessman Tongsun Park in connection with the United Nations Oil-For-Food scandal inevitably brings super-envirocrat Mr. Strong back into the limelight, much, no doubt, to the Liberals’ chagrin.
Mr. Park has been fingered as funnelling funds from the Iraqi regime to influence UN officials. One is Mr. Strong. It may be, as Mr. Strong claims, that he saw no connection between the million laundered dollars he received from Mr. Park to help bail him out of a sticky situation and Mr. Park’s pro-Iraqi activities, but the fact that Mr. Strong is perennially involved in sticky business situations is surely material. After all, Mr. Strong wants to mastermind a new bureaucratic world order that would manage literally everything. And since “secret agendas” are all the rage with the increasingly desperate Liberals, the Prime Minister’s connection with mentor and business partner Mr. Strong deserves a good airing.
Mr. Martin has accused Stephen Harper of being close to the “ultra-far-right” who allegedly hold such sway in George W. Bush’s United States. But if Mr. Harper is to be condemned for his associations with the U.S. right, and for regarding U.S. conservatives as a “light and inspiration,” what illumination and guidance has Mr. Strong provided for Mr. Martin?
Moreover, when it comes to Mr. Strong’s ultimate exoneration — or otherwise — in the current UN investigation, if the management of Oil-For-Food was royally botched, it was royally botched — as a piece in this week’s National Review points out — under a “reform” scheme masterminded by Mr. Strong.
What never ceases to amaze about Maurice Strong is that so many of those who are suspicious of him try to nail him for corruption, for “really being in it for the money,” when his confessed political aims are a million times more sinister and threatening.
Mr. Strong isn’t in it for the money, except insofar as he likes to cultivate the illusion of being an independently wealthy man acting pro bono (and with Bono). He is a self-confessed, diehard socialist, and in case anybody hasn’t noticed, socialism is a political ideology that has caused more death, disaster and garden variety failure than any other in global history. In the wake of the collapse of communism, however, Mr. Strong has been in the vanguard of a highly successful left-wing counterattack against its sworn enemy. Once, capitalism was meant to make us all poor; now that it threatens to make us all rich, the emphasis has shifted to resources and the environment and the fact that we shall allegedly run out of both unless a benevolent UN dictatorship comes to the rescue.
Mr. Strong’s career has been stranger than fiction. He has spent it relentlessly seeking power and influence to forward his agenda, and he has been close to the Liberals since the days of Lester Pearson and Paul Martin’s father. At the UN, he has been the doyen of the environmental movement and of the subversive concept of sustainable development, a vague notion that demands endless technocratic noodling and draconian controls. This explains Mr. Strong’s extraordinary popularity among the wonkish classes, for whom his fertile brain has created literally millions of man years of make-work. He has corralled big business into supporting his dire global prognosis. He has also fertilized radical NGOs — under the seemingly benign guise of “civil society” — to penetrate the UN and pressure national governments the world over.
Mr. Martin has nothing whatsoever to do with the Iraq scandal (Oh, apart, that is, from the fact that his blind trust was an investor in the same company/sinkhole, Cordex, into which Mr. Park funnelled cash from the Iraqi regime. Sound suspicious? In fact, it doesn’t tie Mr. Martin in any way with Oil-For-Food, but what the hell. Run with it. That’s what the Liberals would do). But the Prime Minister seems to be very much on Mr. Strong’s wavelength when it comes to dangerous pretensions of global governance. According to Time magazine, Mr. Martin has devoted more “intellectual energy” to the UN than any prime minister since Lester Pearson. The UN, the magazine said, is “what really winds Mr. Martin’s clock.”
That would be the same UN that is repeatedly exposed as utterly corrupt and incompetent. And which Mr. Martin’s ultra-left-wing friend wants to rule the world. With guns. Including Canada.
And finally here are a couple of intriguing issues that I’ll leave to my younger investigative colleagues to probe. Mr. Park was intercepted in Mexico City on a flight from Canada. What was he doing in Canada? Second, he was reportedly taken into custody as a result of a posting from Interpol. Don’t Canadian airports check for those wanted by Interpol? Or is it that they don’t check for those wanted in the U.S.? Or perhaps who are connected with the Liberal Party of Canada? The suggestion might seem unfounded and paranoid, but we’re in an election, and the Liberals have set the tone.
