On Oct. 29 2012 the former president of Russia, Mikhail Gorbachev was awarded the key to the city. In Winnipeg.
According to CBC
“Winnipeg Mayor Sam Katz presented a key to the city to former President of the Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev and Free The Children ambassador Spencer West. Mayor Katz also thanked Gorbachev and West for their positive action in the world.
“They come from opposite sides of the world, but they have a common lesson to teach – a lesson about human dignity and possibility,” Mayor Katz said in a news release.
Gorbachev and West are speaking at We Day on Tuesday. The event is held to encuorage young people to lead change at home and around the world.
Gorbachev was awarded the Nobel peace award in 1990 for his achievements in international relations. He continues to work for the Gorbachev Foundation and Green Cross International.”
Gorbachev’s Nobel peace price and now the city of Winnipeg award of the “key to the city” (among many other awards) rank as equivalent and as laughable, as Barrack Obama’s peace prize in my opinion.
Gorbachev played a key role in the communist government or Russia from the 1970′s until the early 1990′s. The communist Russian government was labeled as being a “Evil Empire”. This term was first put forth by former American president Ronald Regan.
Michael Johns, writing for The Heritage Foundation’s Policy Review magazine, prominently supported Reagan’s assertion. In “Seventy Years of Evil: Soviet Crimes from Vladimir Lenin to Gorbachev,” Johns cited 208 acts by the Soviet Union that, he argued, demonstrated the Soviet leadership’s evil inclinations. Both Yuri Maltsev (a high-ranking economist in the Soviet Union under Mikhail Gorbachev during the 1980s) and Andrey Kozyrev (former head of the Soviet Foreign Ministry) agreed that the term “evil empire” was an accurate way to describe the Soviet governance.
After leaving office, Gorbachev founded an organization called The Green Cross. The green cross mission statement is as follows.
The mission of Green Cross International is to respond to the combined challenges of security, poverty and environmental degradation to ensure a sustainable and secure future. We seek solutions through dialogue, mediation and co-operation. To achieve this we:
– Promote legal, ethical and behavioural norms that ensure basic changes in the values, actions and attitudes of government, the private sector and civil society, necessary to develop a sustainable global community;
– Contribute to the prevention and resolution of conflicts arising from environmental degradation;
– Provide assistance to people affected by the environmental consequences of wars, conflicts and man made calamities.
The green cross has played a vital role in Agenda 21 and the green movement.
The Earth Charter
Shortly after the Earth Summit concluded Strong formed the Earth Council, a group of “environmental visionaries and philosophers”, and set about drafting this “new global covenant”. Various draft versions were formulated but the radical and transformative nature of the document met with resistance from more conservative members of the UN bureaucracy. In 1997, the Earth Council and Green Cross International, founded by Mikhail Gorbachev, joined forces to form the Earth Charter Commission. The Commission, co-chaired by Strong and Gorbachev, claims to have consulted more than 100,000 “concerned world citizens” around the globe. The twenty-three members of the Commission, which includes nine Club of Rome members, claim to have “mediated prayerfully over every word and comma”. I wonder who they were praying too?
The Earth Charter Commission approved the final text of the Earth Charter in 2000, and it has since been embraced by the United Nations, many religious leaders around the world, the majority of world governments and countless Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO’s) and activist groups. Following the release of the Charter a series of international forums, called The Earth Dialogues were held at the United Nations to discuss how the general public could be convinced to adopt the “covenant with the Earth” in a real and personal way.
Quite simply a man who took part and was leader of a government that was labeled as an evil empire, and has been working to create a global government, depopulation, and total dictatorial control through the green movement. Being given these awards is outlandish to say the least! If I was a resident of Winnipeg, well lets just say that I would not be a happy camper in the slightest.
