Support H.R. 1205 to Get US Out! of the UN

On August 13, 2015, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon publicly called for the resignation of the top UN official in the Central African Republic. Citing sexual violence against the people perpetrated by UN peacekeepers in that landlocked country, Ban stated, “I can not put into words how anguished and ashamed I am by the recurrent reports over the years of sexual exploitation and abuse by UN forces.”

Ban shouldn’t have been suddenly horrified by such criminal activity. Rape and exploitation of defenseless women and children by UN peacekeepers is more the norm than the exception. Countries where such conduct had already occurred over the last decade include Haiti, Congo, Chad, Equatorial Guinea, South Sudan, Bosnia, East Timor, Ivory Coast, and the Central African Republic.

In the face of such a record, the world is supposed to look the other way and join in absurd insistence about how much the UN is needed. But Paula Donovan of the “AIDS-Free World” organization explains why little if anything is done to stop the atrocities. “If something isn’t going well in the world, you can blame the member states. But if something is not going well in the [UN] organization, everyone suppresses the bad news and doesn’t pass it along.”

There is, of course, far more to consider about the world body than the horrifying misconduct of its peacekeepers. The UN was established for the purpose of destroying national sovereignty and abolishing the personal freedom of every person on Earth. Operating under its charter formulated in 1945 by open Russian Communist Andrei Vyshinsky and secret U.S. Communist Alger Hiss, the UN has steadily grown in power and authority. Debating entry into the world body in the summer of 1945, the U.S. Senate approved the charter by a vote of 89 to 2, thereby placing our nation in the organization as one of its founders.

When the UN calls for, or when American leaders decide to engage in, military activity, subsequent action proceeds in the name of the UN itself, as in Korea in the 1950s, or more frequently in the name of the one of the UN’s “Regional Arrangements,” such as the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) or the Southeast Asia Treaty Organization (SEATO) as provided in the charter’s Articles 51-54. One of these UN subsidiaries, labeled SEATO, directed America’s defeat in the Vietnam War. Currently, the UN’s NATO now oversees the conflict in Afghanistan. Ever since the end of World War II, the U.S. hasn’t won a war (Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan), but our casualties have been more than a hundred thousand. Membership in the United Nations led to all those deaths and injuries without the victories that could have been achieved by unchained U.S. forces. A different but important kind of loss has been termination of the required constitutional declaration of war by Congress.

In his address to the UN in 1990, President George H.W. Bush showed his true loyalties when he stated, “It is the sacred principles enshrined in the United Nations Charter to which the American people will henceforth pledge their allegiance.” He’s never been alone in uttering such subversive nonsense. In 2001, Secretary of State Colin Powell journeyed to UN headquarters to proclaim, “With respect to U.S. policy, when it comes to our role as a member of the Security Council, we obviously are bound by UN resolutions.” He should have been fired, but he won praise. Far from being the only U.S. leaders to bow before the UN, Bush and Powell expressed the consistent attitude held by U.S. leaders ever since our country entered the UN in 1945. To them, their oath to abide by the U.S. Constitution means nothing.

Meanwhile, the supposedly “do nothing” UN is hard at work seeking and arranging for national disarmament, abolition of an individual’s right to keep and bear arms, unrestricted abortion, control of education, placement of refugees, termination of property rights, sovereignty-destroying trade pacts, environmental and population controls, and much more. And a parade of U.S. leaders stretching back to 1945 has cooperated with every seizure of power, every UN intervention in the domestic affairs of nations (clearly forbidden by the UN Charter), and the beginning steps contained in the UN’s Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030 programs. Anyone who removes the blinders can see the UN steadily gaining total control over everyone and everything.

All of this boils down to the shocking realization that our country isn’t being taken over by the world body; it is being delivered to the United Nations. Which means that we can do something about it. We can work to inform a sufficient number of fellow Americans who will demand that our country withdraw from the trap that has been laid for us, a trap into which our own leaders are steadily pushing our country.

Congress put America into the UN. Congress can and should take us out. In March 2015, Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.) introduced H.R. 1205 (the American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2015) in the House of Representatives, calling for U.S. withdrawal from the world body. A companion measure is needed in the Senate. Even though H.R. 1205 was introduced over a year ago, there are still only six cosponsors in the House. It’s up to all of us that understand the threat posed by the United Nations, plus many more each of us can influence, to contact our representatives and senators and strongly urge that they cosponsor and pass H.R. 1205 to Get US Out! of the United Nations in the House and introduce, cosponsor, and pass a companion bill in the Senate.

Please phone your representative at 202-225-3121 and your senators at 202-224-3121 and urge them to cosponsor and pass H.R. 1205 in the House and a companion bill in the Senate to Get US Out! of the United Nations.

Please email your representative and senators with the same message.
