Climate Change and Migration Compact: More Prog Destruction

Sitting here in my rural corner of North Carolina watching my beloved canines run and frolic in six to eight inches of global warming pixie dust. You know the stuff that Al Gore long ago told us would be but a memory. Yes, snow. Lots of it. The beasts are having a wonderful time in it, and I dare Gore or the IPCC or any other of those global warmer hoaxers to take it away from them!

Now they are back inside, cold, wet and happy. Just gave them a towel rub down and they have plopped themselves down by the furnace. All is well.

Well . . . not really.

Our Parisian friends have kept up the protest against the loons running and ruining France, Europe and the West. We'll have to wait and see how that turns out. I think something big is brewing in France, and the ruling class is still not fully aware of it. How else could France be a willing participant in the travesty that will take place the next couple of days in my old stomping grounds of Marrakech, Morocco? Yes, I refer to the UN-sponsored Global Compact for Safe Orderly and Regular Migration. If you've absolutely nothing else to do, go and read it. It's another one of those dangerous word salads which appear on first blush harmless, because, "I mean it's non-binding, and all."  Yeah, right. So if it's non-binding why have it at all? Nonsense. These sorts of documents ARE both binding and non-binding. Let me explain.

It's all really very simple. If a country sees it as binding, it is, if it doesn't it's not. Guess which countries will treat it as binding. Guess. Why the main Western countries, of course. Let me explain. These sort of UN documents and their progressive texts will and do work themselves into the social and political debate and the legislation of Western countries. We, for example, will see immigration lawyers and other advocates of mass migration--legal or otherwise--cite this or that paragraph of the Compact, and use it in legal briefs and political debate. Universities will cite it; the media will praise it; and, of course, Hollywood will endorse it. All that stuff about treating migrants with respect and dignity and due process? Can you guess which countries will do that? Which ones don't and won't? Can you guess what the UN solution for migration is? Why it's lots and lots of aid to poor countries and, naturally, to the UN and its various agencies. Of course! Why didn't I think of that?

You'll find big dollops of Orwellian language in the text, with my favorite being Objective 17 (page 24)--I am sure you can and will point out many other examples. Yes, the UN wants your country to have hate speech laws and do so much more, all of which should be called the No Borders and Prog Lawyer and NGO Full Employment Act. Go ahead get a load of this stuff (my bolding),
a) Enact, implement or maintain legislation that penalizes hate crimes and aggravated hate crimes targeting migrants, and train law enforcement and other public officials to identify, prevent and respond to such crimes and other acts of violence that target migrants, as well as to provide medical, legal and psychosocial assistance for victims

b) Empower migrants and communities to denounce any acts of incitement to violence directed towards migrants by informing them of available mechanisms for redress, and ensure that those who actively participate in the commission of a hate crime targeting migrants are held accountable, in accordance with national legislation, while upholding international human rights law, in particular the right to freedom of expression

c) Promote independent, objective and quality reporting of media outlets, including internet- based information, including by sensitizing and educating media professionals on migration-related issues and terminology, investing in ethical reporting standards and advertising, and stopping allocation of public funding or material support to media outlets that systematically promote intolerance, xenophobia, racism and other forms of discrimination towards migrants, in full respect for the freedom of the media

d) Establish mechanisms to prevent, detect and respond to racial, ethnic and religious profiling of migrants by public authorities, as well as systematic instances of intolerance, xenophobia, racism and all other multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination in partnership with National Human Rights Institutions, including by tracking and publishing trends analyses, and ensuring access to effective complaint and redress mechanisms

e) Provide migrants, especially migrant women, with access to national and regional complaint and redress mechanisms with a view to promoting accountability and addressing governmental actions related to discriminatory acts and manifestations carried out against migrants and their families

f) Promote awareness-raising campaigns targeted at communities of origin, transit and destination in order to inform public perceptions regarding the positive contributions of safe, orderly and regular migration, based on evidence and facts, and to end racism, xenophobia and stigmatization against all migrants

g) Engage migrants, political, religious and community leaders, as well as educators and service providers to detect and prevent incidences of intolerance, racism, xenophobia, and other forms of discrimination against migrants and diasporas and support activities in local communities to promote mutual respect, including in the context of electoral campaigns
Ah, yes, the UN wants the press and others only to report positive stories about migration! The UN doesn't want electoral campaigns that raise concerns about migration! We must make no distinction between legal and illegal migrants. Think only positive thoughts! No calls for The Wall, naturally. No discussion of crime by migrants. That is forbidden.

I also like the casual way the Compact throws in climate change as a factor in migration. It does the usual prog tactic of just assuming there is "climate change" and that it is proven. In the old days, we would make fun of the Soviet delegation at UN when one of its members would begin a discussion with, "As is well know . . . " We knew that a big lie would follow. The progs continue with the same tactic.

By the way, there is no mention in the Compact of one proven factor causing migration: Socialism.

It seems that several countries have realized that this thing is another ticking time bomb thrown into the midst of Western Civilization, e.g., Australia, Italy, several Eastern European countries, Israel, and the USA. The problem is that the governments of those nations, including ours, can and will change and we will inevitably get the sort of virtue-signaling prog rulers who will go along with this destructive nonsense.

Total toxic rubbish.

  5. I am fine with the government spending as many dollars as the progressives want on these migrant-related programs on one condition: Those taxes be voluntary.

    I'd pay my share if I thought the programs were doing the job well, but I'm not going to try to force a charitable heart upon others.

    It's time for a libertarian move here.

  6. "I think something big is brewing in France": I'm interested in that view from a retired diplomat because I have no feel for the matter at all.

    By contrast in 1968 I knew the whole thing was just play-acting because I was myself a student at the time. I'd passed through Paris the previous summer and had noticed that the frog student wasn't much different from the British.

    The signs were unmistakeable to me. But not to Mon Général, who fled to a French military base in Germany. It's easy to get out of touch as you age, especially - I dare say - if you have as lofty a view of yourself as de Gaulle did, and live your life accordingly.

    1. There is, as you note, always an element of play-acting in such events. In this one, however, at least, so far, we have crowds of overwhelmingly white middle and working class people, most not so young, marching, fighting, and calling for Macron's ouster. When you get those sort of people out on the streets, then you have a problem. Now maybe they'll be bought off, or the movement will become discredited as it's taken over by the professional rioters, but Macron and the snob elite better not count on that.

  8. A bigger picture view of the Climate Change nonsense, outside of the obvious Population Control Measures, is the replacing of the Petrodollar for a Carbondollar.

    There are a myriad of implications around that in the geopolitical drama that is going on.

  9. Trump: "You guys don't get it. I promised to build a wall. I used little words and was very clear about it. If I don't get something done the people that voted for me will tear me apart like jackals."

    Ann Coulter: "Today's BORDER WALL CONSTRUCTION UPDATE: Miles completed yesterday-Zero; Miles completed since Inauguration Zero. NEXT UPDATE TOMORROW."

    Trump: "See what I mean? That's pretty hard to spin."

    Chuck Schumer: "Get with the program. Republicans always cave. It's in the manual. Didn't you get the secret deep swamp manual that is given to all incoming presidents? It's on chapter 4. There's a chart and everything. Read the fuckin' manual!"

    Trump: "You're boring me."

    Schumer: "Dude, it's simple. You pretend to care and then say something like 'those mean jerks in congress stopped me'. Then you feel sad at first but you fuck an intern in the oval office and it all goes away. It's been like that decades. The script is all written out."

    Trump: "Nope. My voters are sick of bullshit. It has to be concrete progress. Like literally made of concrete. If I have to go there and smack Dan Rather's skull off it I'll do it. They are tired of 'hope', 'change', and 'thousand points of blah blah blah'. They want dozers and cranes in the desert."

    Nancy Pelosi: "We will bury you!"

    Trump: "Meh."

    Elizabeth Warren: "We're not bluffing! We'll grind the government to a halt."

    Trump: "I give 1/1024th of a shit about your opinion."

    Schumer: "It'll happen on Christmas Eve. You'll be totally unpopular with liberals. People will dislike you. They'll call you mean names like Grinchy McGrincehrson!"

    Trump: "I'll be unpopular ? Oh dear. Should I retire to the fainting couch? You can't threaten me with unpopularity among people who shriek that I'm Putin's ass clown. They block roads in Portland and actively wanted to impeach me before I was even sworn in. They'll always hate me. You've already spent two years going scorched earth and so far what's come out of it is that Stormy Daniels now owes me money. I'm not really worried about it."

    Schumer: "You've got a fainting couch too? I use mine all the time. We have common ground."

    Pelosi: "I'll get you and your little dog too!"

    Trump: "I have a dog? I don't recall a dog. I'll have to get back to you on that."

    Schumer and Pelosi: "We want to go to the White House and personally threaten you."

    Trump: "You know the address. I'll be waiting. Step carefully over the bones of my slain enemies that are strewn around the lawn."

    Schumer and Pelosi: "We've come to kick your ass. Let's meet in private."

    Trump: "Nope. We do this here. We do it now."

    Schumer and Pelosi: "People are watching."

    Trump: "You get used to it. I'm always being watched. I've brought this club and I'm going to hit you with it."

    Schumer and Pelosi: "It's Christmas. People will be sad."

    Trump: "My voters will make popcorn and cheer. Now stand still because I'm going to beat you like a rented mule."

    Schumer: "You're not following the script."

    Pelosi: "Can't we do this in private?"

    Trump: (To the press) "Write this down: I fear nothing. Chaos is my thing. I like firing people. I enjoy conflict. I like building stuff. I built tons of shit in New York when you need six lawyers and a permit just to make a cup of coffee. I turned Manhattan into my personal version of SimCity. This is fun. I'm getting an erection just thinking about shutting down every stinking office from the Pentagon's janitors to the NOAA (whatever the hell NOAA means). I like being in the headlines and my people want a damn wall. Go ahead and spin that statement on CNN anyway you like."

  10. One of our problems is that rule of law has shifted from an understanding that there is a lex divino et natural to mere lawyer's craft. A lot of people all over the world sense this, and are now rebelling against a liberal order which, in view of a rule of law trumping the will of the leader that made sense in the light of a lex divino et natural, but which now appears only an absurd plaything of elites.

    3. Former head of the IPCC Pachuri (spelling?) stated explicitly that global warming was his religion. Unsurprisingly, that was not the reason he was evicted by from global warming papacy.
      Global warming (ACGW, specifically) is about faith, because there is simply no way to falsify the hypothesis of anthropogenic catastrophic global warming.
