Congressman Mike Rogers has introduced a new bill (H.R. 193) to end
U.S. membership in the United Nations. The bill is the reintroduction
of his American Sovereignty Restoration Act (H.R. 1205) from the last
Congress. And of course, that was basically the same bill introduced
year after year by former Congressman Ron Paul.
the past, both Paul’s and Roger’s bills have been ignored
by Congress, but things are changing. Americans are beginning to understand
the UN threat. Obama has actually stood before the UN General Assembly
and called for Americans to surrender our national sovereignty to this
Obama worked feverishly to build UN intrusion into our lives through
actions like Agenda 21 and by joining the UN’s Strong Cities Network
to militarize our police, the rest of the world has started to revolt
against UN global policies that are destroying their national independence
Brexit vote in England was the shockwave heard around the world. The
European Union is the first such organization of the UN’s goal
to create such unions in every region of the world, including North
and South American Unions; an Asian Union and so forth. The EU was to
be the wave of the future. England struggled under its shackles until
it could no longer stand it and so revolted. As the vote came in suddenly
other members of the EU started thinking ? if England can escape, why
not them? Sudddenly the global New World Order juggernaut has begun
to show cracks.
France is about to elect its own Trump-style president ready to pull
back its global policies as Italy rebels in its own way. Worst of all
for the UN globalists, their one excuse for power, Climate Change, is
being discredited as President Elect Trump prepares to throw out the
Paris Treaty along with the TPP.
it was the most recent Obama shenanigans in allowing a massive UN attack
on Israel over its settlements in favor of a non-existent Palestine
that has created the strongest ever anti-UN sentiment in the U.S. Pulling
back on paying UN dues has been expressed by several in Congress as
support for such a sentiment has begun to grow across the nation. Without
the United States and its money the UN is nothing. It will cease to
exist in a very short time, just as did the old League of Nations.
to feed that growing sentiment Congressman Rogers has again introduced
the legislative means to make it happen. This time more and more Americans
help readers understand why the UN is such a threat to our nation and
freedom-loving people everywhere, I am reissuing my opening statement
given in a debate over the UN before the 200 year old English debating
society, Cambridge Union in 2006. At the time I was debating the former
UK Ambassador, Lord David Hanney; the head of the Liberal Party and
member of Parliament, Simon Hughes; and the head of the UN Millennium
Project, Salil Shetty.
Mike Rogers’ H.R. 193 must now be seriously considered and passed
by Congress. The time is finally here to make a strong stand to get
the United States out of the United Nations.

is reasonable that honest, compassionate people seek a means for governments
to come together to discuss and air their differences.

way to voluntarily pool resources to provide charitable aid to those
who are starving or are victims of natural disaster.
this is the image of the United Nations that has been sold to the world
since its inception.
is not, however, the reality.
world is in chaos and, quite frankly, it’s the UN’s fault.
It gives validity to zealots and petty bigots. It helps to keep tyrannical
dictators in power. It gives a voice to international terrorists.
Negotiate. Recommend. Study. Reconsider. Do nothing. This is the game
the UN has played in nearly every international crisis.
is the reason North Korea remains a threat after 50 years.
is the reason Zimbabwe’s murderous Robert Mugabe is able to steal
his election and then steal the land of white property owners, drive
the nation into economic ruin and starvation without an international
protest, boycott, or sanction. Instead, Mugabe is given a voice in the
UN’s Sustainable Development conference in South Africa.
is the reason why the Chinese government is able to ignore UN rules
not to its liking -- while growing as an international military and
it is the reason why a terrorist nation like Syria can be given a seat
on the UN’s Human Rights Council.
United Nations, internally, is a mess. It now finds itself buried under

keeping missions actually bring fear to the local citizens they are
supposed to protect. Rob, rape and pillage seem to be the UN’s
modus operandi. How can we be surprised by such revelations?
has the power to oversee and control its actions? The people don’t
vote on UN actions. The media has little access behind the scenes. Who
audits the accounting books?
course, even its supporters will readily agree that such problems exist.
They are quick to jump in and call for “reform.” However,
when talking reform, one must be very careful of what the word may mean.
reports on reform don’t indicate a simple desire to plug holes
in UN spending -- or to clear up scandals. Quite the contrary. According
to Kofi Annan, Maurice Strong and many others, reform means global governance.
its inception, the UN has advocated the desire to eradicate sovereign
nations -- while imposing what it calls “world-mindedness.”
A 1949 UNESCO document said, “nationalism (is) the major obstacle
to the development of world-mindedness.” In the 1990’s,
Maurice Strong said, “it is not feasible for sovereignty to be
exercised unilaterally by individual nation/states, however powerful.”
in lies the true goal of the United Nations. And that belies its public
image as simply a place where nations may come to air their differences
and act responsibly. Instead, the UN is openly working to gain power
for itself in order to become independent and supreme over its member
do that it needs the power to tax. On September 19th (2006) plans were
approved to begin the creation of a global tax, mostly through airline
tickets to help pay for the treatment of aids. They of course euphemistically
call it a contribution.
are several other tax schemes on the UN wish list, including a carbon
tax on Co2 emissions, a currency tax on transactions of foreign currency
exchanges, and taxes on the Internet, to name a few. If the UN gains
the power to tax and the enforcement power necessary to collect them,
then the UN will become an unstoppable force in the world. A monster
free from its chains.
of course, the UN wants its own military. It already has its own court.
three things; the ability to collect taxes to provide nearly unlimited
funds from independent sources; the ability to enforce its will with
a military force; and a court system to impose its own brand of justice,
are all that is required to create a government.
a world run by the justice of China, with the economics of Cuba and
the military might of the United States. Such is the world of the future
under United Nations global governance.
relations propaganda aside, clearly, the United Nations wants to be
much more than a place where nations can come together to air their
differences under a voluntary membership association.
truth is, today, fifty years after the inception of the United Nations,
the international community is a dangerous place. Today the world has
more wars, more poverty and more suffering that anytime in human history.
the United Nations is irrelevant as a body to deliver world peace. Just
as obviously, the UN is more interested in meddling in the sovereign
affairs of nations, seeking to impose its own agenda over development,
production and what it calls social equity in a drive to set itself
up for global governance.

or starving children, the UN promotes an agenda which really seeks to
redistribute the world’s wealth. Its only answer is government
control - and confiscation of individual wealth and property.
is there mentioned in a single UN document that I have read an advocacy
for the right to own private property. In fact, quite the opposite is
the case as nearly every UN document, report, working paper, program,
treaty, protocol, declaration and resolution is dedicated to the confiscation,
redistribution, regulation and tax of someone’s property.
is a fact that the inability to own private property creates poverty.
It is also a fact that confiscation of private property never helps
to eradicate poverty. It is bad economic policy. Yet that is the UN’s
only solution to the massive suffering throughout the world. Take it
from one source to give to another. And that, I contend, is the very
root of the suffering - not the solution.
UN was wrong from its very beginning and wrong now because it has always
sought to interfere with national sovereignty rather than to provide
a unique forum to help keep the peace.
United Nations is not “dysfunctional” as some “reformists”
have claimed. It is a criminal enterprise in which no moral nation should
ever participate, let alone perpetuate.
