World Tribune – Joe Schaeffer –
“[L]et’s be honest, we live at a time when institutions as vital to human progress as the United Nations are under attack. The European Union is threatened. The G7 is being threatened. NATO is being threatened. The WTO is being threatened. I mean, what’s left? And not just these institutions, but what they stand for — an international order based on shared values and shared rules — an international order that is facing the greatest test in its 70-year history. Not just these institutions, but what they’ve achieved is at risk.”
These are unmistakably the words of a statist globalist dedicated to helping usher in a New World Order. Oh, and he just so happens to be the lead singer of perhaps the most popular band in the world over the last 40 years.
Bono, the Irish rocker who fronts U2, has made a name for himself over the past two decades for his non-stop blathering about sharing the wealth of the West with the rest of the world, even as he continues to amass a personal net worth currently estimated at over $700 million. His hypocrisy is infuriating, but it should not distract from the fact that this is a very influential man who is tied closely at the hip with two of the most destructive pro-globalization goliaths on the scene today, progressive billionaire George Soros and Microsoft money machine Bill Gates.
Bono’s ONE Foundation is the vehicle through which the singer pushes his internationalist agenda. Its very founding roots are intertwined with Soros and Gates. “ONE originated in conversations between Bill Gates and Bono in the early 2000s about the need to better inform Americans about extreme poverty around the world,” the Gates Foundation website says of one of its top grant recipients.
“Together with Melinda Gates, Bobby Shriver, George Soros, Ed Scott, Bob Geldof, and Jamie Drummond, they created an anti-poverty advocacy organization called DATA that focused on deploying celebrities and other influential individuals to urge world leaders to take action on specific development issues. Within a few years, DATA had joined with several other organizations to form ONE, with major backing from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.”
At this very moment a Soros agent sits on ONE’s Board of Directors. “Morton H. Halperin is a Senior Advisor to the Open Society Institute and the Open Society Policy Center,” his ONE bio reads. Halperin’s resume gives testament to a life devoted to the service of progressive internationalist elites. “He was a Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress from June 2003 to December 2009 and was a Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations Council on Foreign Relations from January 2001 to June 2003 and from March 1996 to December 1998,” the bio states. “Dr. Halperin worked for many years for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).”
ONE’s leading lights avidly support Soros’s plans to destroy the West. ONE co-founder Jamie Drummond was shockingly blunt in 2018 in voicing his enthusiasm for the Third World invasion of Europe. “As Africa’s population doubles, a lot of them, whatever the circumstances, will be coming to Europe, as economic migrants or as refugees, they will be coming, many of them,” Drummond told the Joint Committee on Foreign Affairs and Trade and Defence, Infowars reports. “And that is a good thing.
