A bigshot named John Ashe has been charged with bribery.

John Ashe is a former president of the United Nations General Assembly.

He's neck deep in bribery and corruption.

Apparently some businessmen from China corrupted him with payoffs for influence.

How can people like this get into such high international positions?

How can people trust anything coming from big places like the U.N. and big governments?

I bet he is good friends with another famous international bandit Kofi Annan

Ex-U.N. General Assembly president, five others charged in U.S. in bribe scheme


U.S. authorities charged a former president of the United Nations General Assembly, a billionaire Macau real estate developer and four others on Tuesday for engaging in a wide-ranging corruption scheme.

John Ashe, the U.N. ambassador from Antigua and Barbuda who was president in 2013, was accused in a complaint filed in federal court in New York of taking more than $1.3 million in bribes from Chinese businessmen, including developer Ng Lap Seng.

The complaint said Ng, through intermediaries, paid Ashe more than $500,000. In exchange, Ashe told the U.N. secretary general that a yet-to-be built multibillion-dollar U.N.-sponsored conference center in Macau was needed.

All things being equal, the person with the most motivation will get the prize, or top spot.

So who is most motivated, the guy who wants to do something for somebody else, or the guy who wants to do something for himself?

Political hierarchy is license to abuse society, because the people at the top are there for themselves.

I wonder how much money is being thrown under the table to the UN and their 'officials', and their 'agenda' 2030.

The UN is one of the most corrupt organizations in the world.

Dissolve.Disbanded, and get rid of that colossal failure.

$1.3M in bribes?

That's small potatoes.

No surprises there really.

The UN has managed to make most societies deeply unhappy with its insane policies of forced racial and cultural integration combined with a law of no discrimination based on religion, giving some very unsavory characters a foothold in our nation's.

The UN should be disbanded.

More on the dragnet closing on Hillary Clinton, no wonder she sick!


Longtime Clinton Donor Arrested in U.N. Bribery Scheme




For the second time in three decades, a billionaire Chinese real estate mogul is central to a scandal over whether his money was used to buy influence.

Authorities say in the 1990s, Ng Lap Seng (eeng-lap-sing) funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Democratic National Committee. He visited the White House at least 10 times and was photographed with then-President Bill Clinton and first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Now, a federal prosecutor has charged him with playing a central role in a $1.3 million bribery scheme to corrupt a former president of the United Nations General Assembly.

His lawyer has said his arrest two weeks ago was a misunderstanding. Investigators say he wanted to secure his legacy by bribing his way to building a multibillion-dollar U.N.-connected conference center.

So his arrest two weeks ago was part of this sting, but NG blamed it on a misunderstanding?!
A familiar tactic as of late in the Clinton Camp.

How can people like this get into such high international positions?


Mostly, it's who you know, or more accurately, who your parents know and who they went to school with or do business with.

The 'Old boy network'.

Besides, many of these supposedly high-brow Humanitarian people in power positions, if they knew they'd get away with it would probably think nothing of stabbing you in the back for the £5 note in your pocket, just to light their cigars with...so really, connections and ruthlessness is probably the answer to your question.
