The United Nations has been under public scrutiny for quite some time now, and for good reason. Sexual abuse is a recurring problem in the organization, with numerous UN peacekeepers being accused of sexually assaulting the very people to whom they were meant to provide aid and protection. What’s worse, the organization often sweeps these cases under the rug rather than addressing them head on.
The most recent cases were brought to attention by Code Blue, a campaign by a US-based NGO that’s fighting for more accountability for UN peacekeepers’ actions. The latest allegations made against the troops were related to sexual misconduct against community members in the Central African Republic (CAR) and the UN’s mishandling of these accusations.
Sexual Misconduct By UN Peacekeepers in the CAR
Code Blue received 14 internal UN reports that included specific details regarding the allegations made against UN peacekeepers in CAR. Not only did these cases involve some very serious allegations of sexual misconduct, but they were repeatedly mishandled and “botched” by the UN.
Sharanya Kanikkannan, a lawyer with Code Blue, explained that the UN was filtering out complaints almost immediately after they received them and disregarding cases prior to even thoroughly investigating them.
“The filtering ensures that there is no access to justice for the vast majority of victims since they cannot gain access to law enforcement authorities without first convincing UN staff to believe them,” Kanikkannan said.
However, even if the allegations are considered “credible,” the responsibility lies on the perpetrators’ home countries to prosecute them. Then again, the UN can simply decide that the claim does not have enough evidence to back it up, meaning it gets dismissed.
Of the 14 cases cited by Code Blue, eight of the alleged survivors weren’t even interviewed. Ten of them were only dealt with inside of the organization and only one was pursued and investigated by the alleged perpetrator’s home country.
Another issue is that the UN fails to adequately disclose this information to the public. Of these 14 cases, only four are included on the UN website where data is supposedly published about sexual misconduct cases.
Code Blue isn’t the only organization urging the UN to take responsibility for their actions either. Last week, British human rights NGO Redress published a report titled “Sexual Exploitation and Abuse in Peacekeeping Operations,” which claimed that the UN mishandled many of these cases.
The report stated that there were obstacles preventing victims from coming forward and reporting their abuse to the UN “stemming from limited information about channels to report, fear and the inevitable conflict of interest when the UN receives complaints about the actions of those working under its mandate.”
The report continues:
There have been persistent allegations of sexual abuse in recent years in countries including the Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of the Congo and Haiti. There are no precise figures of the number of persons who have been subjected to sexual exploitation and abuse, though over 2,000 allegations have been recorded over a 13-year period (2004-2016).
Please keep in mind that these are only the recorded allegations, and this number is likely not an accurate reflection of the true number of victims abused by UN peacekeepers/troops.
This isn’t the first time UN peacekeepers have been publicly ridiculed for sexual misconduct, as the UN has been facing these problems for decades. Earlier this year, UN peacekeepers were actually caught running a child sex ring.
Other Sexual Misconduct Allegations Against UN Peacekeepers
An Associated Press investigation into the United Nations (UN) has revealed that over the past 12 years, there have been approximately 2,000 allegations of sexual abuse and exploitation by UN peacekeepers and other employees around the world. Over 300 of those cases involved children; however, very few perpetrators have actually been arrested and held accountable for their crimes.
In regards to the child sex ring run by UN peacekeepers in Haiti previously mentioned, nine children were being passed around from 2004 to 2007. The UN found out about what was going on, yet chose only to send home 114 of the peacekeepers. Of the 114 UN peacekeepers involved, no one was imprisoned. Though this put an end to that specific sex ring, the sexual abuse and exploitation in Haiti by UN peacekeepers didn’t stop there.
In addition, when the sex ring was being investigated, a team of Sri Lankan officials traveled to Haiti for two weeks to further examine the allegations. They only communicated with 25 soldiers out of more than 900 in the country and their findings indicated that only two corporals and one private were involved with having sex with two “young” victims. This is obviously a vast understatement of the amount of Sri Lankan peacekeepers involved and speaks to the level of corruption that exists within the political system.
To read more about the child sex ring run by UN peacekeepers in Haiti, check out the following article:
There was another pedophile ring in the Democratic Republic of Congo that the UN was involved in — UN police officers in Bosnia paid for prostitutes and were caught trafficking young women from Eastern Europe — and the UN was involved with child sexual abuse and rape in the Central African Republic as well.
Cases like these are particularly devastating because the perpetrators are the people we’re supposed to trust to help others: the United Nations’ peacekeepers. As it turns out, these people are far too often anything but “peace keepers.” Instead, they’re the ones wreaking havoc in these villages and causing women and children to have nightmares for the rest of their lives.
Instead of burying these stories and simply not addressing them, the UN needs to step up and investigate these cases fully and take responsibility for any allegations that are found to be true. Not only do they owe it to the victims who were subjected to abuse, but they also owe it to the peacekeepers so they can further understand how to stop this from occurring in the first place.
The Deep Truth Behind Why Trump Is President
- The Facts:
Since Trump's presidency, we have seen many of humanities shadows thrust into conversation. Not just shadows of Trump, but each and every one of us. The media has been aggressively opposing Trump almost all the way through.
- Reflect On:
What is Trump's presidency showing us about ourselves? Why are we seeing a full out media attack on Trump? Is the cabal losing power? Are we beginning to see the first stages of big shifts away from oppressive regimes?
A little backstory before we get into the video below. Back in 2016, following the election, we had stated that there seemed to be a pretty large shift in power given that Trump made his way into office. How did this happen? Here is a brief outline.
There is a divide taking place within the Cabal/Deep State. This divide is causing power struggles as some facets work to move away from the entirely destructive means of the previous many decades, and instead work towards a different path. Is this an entirely ‘good’ path? No, but we’re going to see this as a HUGE welcome improvement as we continue to shift our consciousness.
This divide works its way through intelligence agencies whereby ‘white hats,’ as you can call them, begin to bring forth leaks, information and dealings that help break apart the extremely oppressive end of the cabal. White hats are essentially everyday individuals, like Snowden was, who work inside intelligence agencies and who are also having a shift in consciousness within themselves. No longer do they wish to support the ways of the old, the ways it would have been if Hillary made it into office.
So we begin to see a power struggle, one that is obviously coming as a result of having an ‘outsider’ in office that is shaking things up QUICKLY.
How Did Trump Get In?
First off, what I mentioned above is a big part of it. On top of that, was the flip in electoral college manipulation that usually takes place when a president is chosen. Was Hillary Clinton furiously angry after the election because she didn’t get enough support from the general populace? No, she was furiously angry because her side of the Cabal/Deep State, who promised her a win and bought the entire media to help make it happen, flipped in part, causing enough of a change to have Trump get in.
Now typically people tend to think that when you talk about things in this manner it means you are in favor of Republicans and Trump. But this is primitive thinking in that it only looks at one tiny layer of what’s happening to apply an explanation we can then be comfortable with. When in reality, all that is happening here is we are looking at what is ACTUALLY happening, not what we are being told what is happening.
You do not have to be pro Trump, pro Republican, or even in support of politics at all, for that matter, to see what’s truly taking place here.
Regardless, questions have been coming in for months and months to CE, asking what we think about Trump, whether we are in support of him and what all of this ‘chaos’ means. Of course, some, because we speak about things honestly and from a neutral perspective, tend to think we side with Trump because SOME of the actions of his administration and who’s behind him are actually in favor of humanity, and we report on them.
But regardless of the amount of explanation we have tried to bring to this somewhat complicated situation, I felt we needed something VERY clear. So I created a video expressing what Trump’s presidency truly means for our collective consciousness and 3 very big factors that are being brought forth through his time in office. This video will answer the topic this article is titled as.
Please take the time to watch and digest this, as it will answer so many questions regarding Trump and what is taking place.
Brazil’s Proactive Plan To Fight Poverty By Preventing It Through Neuroscience & Parents Love
- The Facts:
The first 1000 days of a child's life are the most important for the proper development of their brain. Many parents lack this knowledge and understanding of what it truly takes to ensure their children are getting what they need.
- Reflect On:
The outcome of this massive experiment from Brazil may change the way parents are raising their kids worldwide. Children who come from loving, supportive, attentive families will have a better chance of creating a good life for themselves.
For nearly two decades Brazil has undergone the world’s biggest experiment to prove that by teaching poor parents how to love and nurture their infants it will dramatically influence what kind of people they become as adults. Through this guidance and support, Brazil is hoping to change its current trajectory of violence, inequality, and poverty through a method of prevention through love and care.
It is no secret that babies need to be loved and nurtured, but over the years there have been many other opinions and popular books about the Cry It Out method, or leaving babies to fend for themselves, placing them in their crib alone, out of the danger/fear of potentially smothering your baby in their sleep. Also, there is a general lack of knowledge and understanding about how crucial your time, care and attention is to a developing baby.
Because of this, many babies and children haven’t received an adequate amount of love and care as is needed for healthy brain development. In fact, babies can’t fend for themselves, and when they are left to cry they have drastically increased levels of cortisol, which can have a detrimental impact on their development, potentially altering who they could become later in life.
The leader of this project, Osmar Terra, became obsessed with the question of how humans develop about 30 years ago. He was a cardiologist in the 90’s and would often read research papers about the neuroscience of early childhood. After entering politics and becoming mayor of Santa Rosa in Rio Grande do Sul in ’92 he continued to ponder this question, leading him to a master’s degree in neuroscience. Terra wanted to find a way to tackle poverty head-on.
“In every single activity, I always ask myself, ‘What is the public policy that can be more transformative?’” he says. “How can we most dramatically improve the quality of life for our citizens, their health, their education?”
After much research, he came to realize that the answer to that question starts at the very beginning, during the pregnancy and the first few years of a child’s life.
There is a ton of groundbreaking research that shows how love and a sense of safety experienced by a baby will directly impact how the child brain will become wired. Adversity, especially that which is persistent and stress-triggering such as neglect and abuse will hinder development. This can result in poor mental, emotional and physical health, educational attainment and even early death. All of this important information and research is ultimately what led Terra to create Crianca Feliz, a highly ambitious parent coaching and guidance program that was launched in 2017. The goal is to try and reach four million pregnant woman and children by 2020.
Have A Look
“If a child feels emotionally safe and secure and attached they explore the world in a better way. The safer they feel, the safer their base, the faster they learn,” he says.
“I believe that this is the solution, not only for Brazil, but for any country in the world in terms of security, public security, education, and healthcare,” says José Medeiros, a senator from the state of Mato Grosso who heads the parliamentary committee on early childhood development. “It’s a cheap solution.”
Terra’s claims are more dramatic. “We will change the world, starting from the very beginning.”
The First 1,000 Days
Scientists have discovered that the first 1000 days of life are the most crucial for brain development.
According to Quartz.com
Many people, rich and poor alike, have no idea what infants are capable of. Psychologists and neuroscientists believe they are creative geniuses, able to process information in far more sophisticated ways than we ever knew. But for that genius to show itself, the baby needs to feel safe and loved and to have attention.
Medeiros explains how he viewed parenting before he went to the Harvard program.
”I raised my kids as if I were taking care of a plant,” he recalls. “You give them food, you take care of them.” He says he did the best he could, but “I did not have all this information. If I had encouraged them, stimulated them more, I would have been able to contribute much more to their development.”
He is hardly the exception. A 2012 nationally representative survey in Brazil asked mothers, 52% of whom were college educated, what things were most important for the development of their children up to three years of age. Only 19% mentioned playing and walking, 18% said receiving attention from adults, and 12% picked receiving affection. “So playing, talking to the child, attachment, it’s not important for more than 80% of the people who are interviewed,” says Harasawa, the director of Criança Feliz.
What Can We Take Away?
Could a lack of knowledge around what it really means to be a parent and raise a child be one of the biggest contributors to the crime, domestic violence, poverty and a wide array of other damaging behaviours that we are seeing globally? Could it really come down to parenting and the care that is given during the first 1000 days? It is very likely.
Unfortunately, many of the parents without the knowledge were likely raised by parents who didn’t have this knowledge either. Brazil’s ambitious plan will serve as a powerful experiment that the whole world can take note of. This truly has the power to give parents the tools they need to raise their kids in such a way that they have a better chance of reaching their highest potential. Let’s not forget that the children of today are the leaders of tomorrow. This is very important work, Bravo Brazil for leading the way for this powerful potential for real change!
US Military Child Sex Trafficking Whistleblower Exposes The United Nations & The U.S. State Department
- The Facts:
Ex Nebraska policewoman, Kathryn Bolkovac, who served as a UN peacekeeper and worked under DynCorp, a military contractor, where she learned about elite level sex trafficking involving the UN, the State Department & Military exposes the truth.
- Reflect On:
Numerous disclosures have been made, yet none of it is ever presented in the mainstream media, and if it is, they attempt to debunk it. Why does this type of activity always involve prominent "elitist" people? Why is it always covered up?
The topic of pedophilia is a disturbing one for sure, what’s even more disturbing is that this kind of thing continues to happen all over the world, particularly among the global elite. There are literally too many examples to go through, whether it be the pedophilia that’s been exposed inside the Vatican or the fairly recent NBC news report accusing Hillary Clinton covering up a giant pedophile ring within the state department, this thing is hitting the mainstream.
What really blew the lid off the topic was the whole Pizzagate scandal, although labeled as “fake news” by those who control the mainstream media, as organizations like Wikileaks felt it very important to release that information, and question it. Then you have people with strange connections to the Clintons and other ‘global elitists,’ like Jimmy Savile, who was well connected with the Royal Family, as well as Jeffrey Epstein, who seemed to be well connected with Prince Andrew.
There are countless lawsuits, accusations, and more constantly going on that the public is completely unaware of. The Vatican alone has dished out approximately 4 billion dollars to settle child sex abuse claims, and right now, the prominent Vatican official Cardinal George Pell, who has been found on multiple occasions to be connected to large pedophilia rings, has been charged by detectives in Australia and is currently fighting multiple allegations of sexual abuse.
Above are not even a fraction of the examples that are out there, this is a very big issue with a lot of evidence behind it, but we don’t really know about it because not many people hear about it, and most of it is so downright unbelievable that it’s hard to blame them, but also discouraging when it’s not really acknowledged.
Apart from what’s mentioned above, we have people from within these “cliques”, and others from police forces, as well as intelligence agencies, investigating this type of thing. Ted Gunderson, a former Director of the FBI (LA Branch) was one who spent a lot of time in this area, if you haven’t already heard of him I suggest you check him out. He did a lot of investigating into elite level child sex pedophile rings as well as children who’ve been used in strange rituals.
You can watch a lecture from Gunderson here.
There’s a quote that fits in perfectly with this from a Vatican source, Malachi Martin, who was an Irish Catholic priest and writer on the Catholic Church. He was originally ordained as a Jesuit priest and became Professor of Paleography at the Vatican’s Pontifical Biblical Institute.
“Most frighteningly for [Pope] John Paul [II], he had come up against the irremovable presence of a malign strength in his own Vatican and in certain bishops’ chanceries. It was what knowledgeable Churchmen called the ‘superforce.’ Rumors, always difficult to verify, tied its installation to the beginning of Pope Paul VI’s reign in 1963. Indeed Paul had alluded somberly to ‘the smoke of Satan which has entered the Sanctuary’. . . an oblique reference to an enthronement ceremony by Satanists in the Vatican. Besides, the incidence of Satanic pedophilia – rites and practices – was already documented among certain bishops and priests as widely dispersed as Turin, in Italy, and South Carolina, in the United States. The cultic acts of Satanic pedophilia are considered by professionals to be the culmination of the Fallen Archangel’s rites.” (Written in Manlpy P. Hall’s book about geopolitics and the Vatican, The Keys of This Blood, page 632)
So, for these reasons and many more, I wanted to turn your attention to a lecture given by a former Nebraska policewoman, Kathryn Bolkovac, who has also served as a U/N/ peacekeeper. In the lecture, she discusses her experience with human trafficking. What makes her so interesting is that she was with the International Police Task Force which was arranged by DynCorp Aerospace. She was actually assigned to the office that investigates sex trafficking, which is how she learned what she did.
What she discovered was horrific. For example, when she arrived in Bosnia, she was shocked to discover military officers involved in human trafficking and forced prostitution, with ties to the United Nations as well as the U.S. State Department. Let me remind of the first paragraph of this article, with regards to the State Department. Even Steve Pieczenik, a former United States Department of State official who referenced Jeffrey Epstein (mentioned above) fairly recently stated,
“We know that both of them have been a major part and participant of what’s called The Lolita Express, which is a plane owned by Mr. Jeff Epstein, a wealthy multi-millionaire who flies down to the Bahamas and allows Bill Clinton and Hillary to engage in sex with minors, that is called Pedophilia.”
But again, this goes far beyond just mere quotes.
Bolkovac’s disclosures have been a precursor to some recent ones, like, for example, US-based NGO Code Blue received 14 internal UN reports detailing how numerous UN peacekeepers were accused of sexual misconduct. They involved some very serious allegations, which were mishandled and “botched” by the UN. An Associated Press investigation into the United Nations (UN) has revealed that over the past 12 years, there have been approximately 2,000 allegations of sexual abuse and exploitation by UN peacekeepers and other employees around the world. The latest example to come out of the UN would be from the ex-chief advisor for the United Nation’s Child Labour Program, Peter Dalglish, who was recently arrested for pedophilia. In early 2017 the United Nations Secretary-General admitted to 145 incidents involving 311 victims in 2016 alone, mainly in peace operations. We covered this earlier this year.
When Bolkovac exposed this type of stuff, she was instantly demoted, threatened, fired, and forced to flee the country. She was a target because she had access to and kept the incriminating documents. She was the inspiration behind the Hollywood feature film, “The Whistleblower: Sex Trafficking, Military Contractors, and One Woman’s fight for Justice”
Her role, while she had her job, involved a post with the International Police Task Force arranged by DynCorp Aerospace. She won a lawsuit against them publicly exposing their numerous human rights violations. Anytime I write about DynCorp, I have to mention that retired army General James Grazioplene, who worked in the Pentagon and as the Vice President of DynCorp, is currently facing multiple rape charges.
Former U.S. representative Cynthia Mckinney was well aware of the corruption that was going on within DynCorp, and she actually addressed it in 2005 when she grilled former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld on the government’s involvement and compliance with DynCorp’s child trafficking business of selling women and children.
There will be a number of related CE articles on this issue linked below the lecture that goes into more detail about the above-mentioned stuff
