Last Friday, while most Americans were distracted debating the pros and cons of the Confederate Flag, or lamenting the latest SCOTUS rulings, Democrats and one world supporters gathered in San Francisco, California to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the United Nations.
The event, held in San Francisco City Hall, was a Progressive star-studded event featuring the likes of Governor Jerry Brown, Mayor Ed Lee, and Democratic Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi. But the most compelling statement was made the the keynote speaker, the Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-Moon. Secretary Moon admitted that in September World Leaders, including President Obama,are set to sign a new international development agreement to eradicate poverty:
“Ladies and Gentlemen I’ll tell you why we have big works ahead. In September World Leaders, including President Obama, will come to the United Nations Special Summit Session and will adopt an inspiring new development agenda to end global poverty.”

What could these new development goals be, you ask? And could they possibly involve wealth redistribution?
The “goals” are none other than Sustainable Development goals, which are an extension of the Millennium Goals, and they will be adopted at the Sustainable Development Summit in September in New York City. Oh and yes, they do involve wealth redistribution.
According to a United Nations report, Sustainable Development is all about wealth redistribution:
“The growing concentration of wealth and income, which may represent an inherent feature of capitalism (Piketty 2013), stands in sharp contrast with the increasingly cooperative nature of wealth creation in ever more interdependent and globalized, but segmented and dispersed production processes (Moulier-Boutang 2012). It further prevents eradicating poverty without breaching planetary boundaries (Rockström et al. 2009, Gerst et al. 2013). An approach for simultaneously addressing issues of resource allocation, wealth and income distribution as well as the quantity of natural resources nurturing economic activity is therefore required (Costanza et al. 2012, Farley et al. 2013). Redistributive policies are an essential component of strategies for reducing inequality and promoting sustainable development in its three dimensions: economic, social and environmental.”
So in a few months when the American people are once again distracted by the latest news of the day, President Obama will be in New York signing an international agreement to redistribute the wealth of Americans in an effort to eliminate poverty. Because just as every Progressive Communist knows, poverty disappears when everyone is equally poor.
