United Nations: Intentions vs. Track Record
Though in retrospect appearing naive, the UN originally began with the high ideals of preventing future wars.
The United Nations officially began OCTOBER 24, 1945.
Its name was coined by President Franklin Roosevelt.
The United Nations’ charter was drafted in the Garden Room of San Francisco’s Fairmont Hotel.
The Charter meeting did not open with prayer.
The United Nations was created to prevent future wars, particularly to guarantee there would not be another genocidal holocaust, such as what Jews experienced at the hands of Hitler’s National Socialist Workers Party.
Unfortunately, there have been nearly 150 wars with over 100 million casualties since:
5 in Central Asia,
11 in South Asia,
20 in Southeast Asia,
13 in Eastern Europe,
23 in the Middle East,
25 in Latin & South America and
50 in Africa.
Ronald Reagan stated:
“The founders of the United Nations sought to replace a world at war with a world of civilized order. They hoped that a world of relentless conflict would give way to a new era, one where freedom from violence prevailed … But the awful truth is that the use of violence for political gain has become more, not less, widespread in the last decade.”
At the United Nations Charter Conference in 1945, the Secretary-General was Alger Hiss.
Alger Hiss, as a part of the Secretary of State’s delegation, attended the Yalta Conference, February 4-11, 1945, where a large portion of Europe was sentenced to be under the control of the Soviet Union.
Alger Hiss was later accused and convicted of being a Soviet agent in publicized 1948 trial.
The person who accused Alger Hiss was a former Soviet spy Whittaker Chambers.
Soviet spy Whittaker Chambers had been senior editor of TIME Magazine, with the intent of influencing American policy by subtly disseminating fake-news propaganda.
When several of his fellow spies were caught and killed, Chambers had a change of heart.
He defected to the United States authorities and proceeded to expose his activities and connections.
After Whittaker Chambers died, President Ronald Reagan awarded him the Medal of Freedom, March 26, 1984, stating:
“At a critical moment in our Nation’s history, Whittaker Chambers stood alone against the brooding terrors of our age … He became the focus of a momentous controversy in American history that symbolized our century’s epic struggle between freedom and totalitarianism, a controversy in which the solitary figure of Whittaker Chambers personified the mystery of human redemption in the face of evil and suffering.”
In 1946, John D. Rockefeller, Jr., whose father was the richest man in the world, donated the 16 acres of land in New York City for the United Nations building.
The United Nations, comprised of over 190 members states, spends approximately $20 billion annually, with the largest amount being contributed by taxpayers of the United States.
Though 50 states comprise the United States of America, they are allowed only one combined vote, equivalent to the tiniest of nations.
After accusations of a U.N. Oil for Food Scandal and a U.N. Sex Scandal, the U.N. was pressured to release its first audit in 2005.
The U.N. Universal Declaration of Human Rights, written with the help of Eleanor Roosevelt, was adopted by the U.N. General Assembly, December 8, 1948.
The Guardian (Oct. 10, 2018) published the article: “Why are the World’s worst violators joining UN human rights council?”
The Independent (Sept. 17, 2017): “Nine members of the UN Human Rights Council accused of violating human rights.”
The New York Times (Oct. 17, 2019): “Venezuela to join UN Human Rights Council Despite Record.”
The United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights has no mention of the “Creator” as the source of human rights. This is contrary to America’s Declaration of Independence, which states: “All men … are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.”
The U.N. simply claims that the source of human rights is what all the nations agree upon.
The U.N. Declaration of Human Rights includes articles such as:
“Article 18. Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief.”
This conflicted with Islamic Sharia law which imposes the death penalty for anyone leaving the Islamic religion.
The leaders of 57 Islamic countries rejected many articles in the U.N. Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
They formed their own subgroup called the OIC — Organization of Islamic Cooperation.
In 1990, the OIC passed their “Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam,” which affirmed Shariah law as supreme, with:
— the death penalty for those leaving Islam;
— punishing women who are victims of rape;
— allowing men to be polygamous;
— permitting wife beating; and
— censoring speech insulting Islam.
Secretary of State Clinton’s U.S. State Department, USAID and U.S. Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation reportedly spent $770 million to rebuild mosques in 27 nations, such as:
Afghanistan, Albania, Azerbaijan, Benin, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Cairo, Cyprus, Egypt, Maldives, Mali, Montenegro, Pakistan, Serbia, Sudan, Tanzania, Tunisia, Turkmenistan, Uganda, and Yemen.
During this time, many wealthy Muslim sheiks donated over $100 million to the Clinton Foundation.
On December 12, 2011, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton began a 3-day closed door meeting with the OIC, promising to support their Istanbul Process to universally “criminalize” speech insulting Islam, effectively enforcing “dhimmi” status on non-Muslims worldwide.
By definition, the Gospel is insulting to Islam as it proclaims that Jesus Christ is more than a prophet, being the Son of God who died on the cross as the Lamb of God to take the punishment for all the sins of the world.
In fact, anything that is not Islam insults Islam.
At the end of the meeting, OIC Secretary General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu stated: “The Istanbul Process initiated with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton … must be carried forward.” Clinton added: “We now need to move to implementation.”
“Implementation” could be a reference to tactics Hillary Clinton espoused in her senior thesis at Wellesley College on Saul Alinsky’s Reveille for Radicals (1946).
Barak Obama also taught Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals (1971), while beginning his political community organizing career in Chicago.
Saul Alinsky wrote in Rules for Radicals: “The first step in community organization is community disorganization. The disruption of the present organization is the first step … The organizer must first rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; fan the latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expression … Search out controversy and issues, rather than avoid them, for unless there is controversy people are not concerned enough to act … The organizer’s first job is to create the issues or problems … An organizer must stir up dissatisfaction and discontent … The organizer … polarizes the issue … The organizer helps to lead his forces into conflict … The real arena is corrupt and bloody… In war the end justifies almost any means.”
This is similar to Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin, who stated: “Crisis alone permitted the authorities to demand – and obtain – total submission and all necessary sacrifices from its citizens.”
In the months following her OIC meeting, Hillary Clinton’s State Department ignored repeated requests for security by Ambassador Chris Stevens.
Then a crisis occurred. Ambassador Stevens was killed with several others in the Benghazi attack on September 11, 2012.
Immediately, the morning after the attack, Secretary Clinton’s State Department blamed a video and sent memos to YouTube and Google recommending they censor speech insulting Islam, consistent with promises made at the OIC Istanbul Process meeting.
President Obama added to this narrative by telling the U.N. General Assembly, September 25, 2012: “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”
Susan Rice reiterated the claim blaming a video.
When she was subsequently promoted by President Obama to chief national security advisor, Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) tweeted: “I really question the President’s judgment in promoting someone who was complicit in misleading the American public on the Benghazi attacks.”
The Washington Times (April 5, 2017) published: “The half-baked lies of Susan Rice — The Obama adviser’s record of deceit is catching up with her.”
Requests made by Judicial Watch through the Freedom of Information Act revealed Clinton emails exposing how U.S. weapons used to oust Libya’s President Gaddafi were being moved from Benghazi in a “Fast and Furious” style program to arm Muslim fighters to oust Syria’s President Assad, as part of a larger plan to establish an Islamic Caliphate.
“Fast and Furious” was an operation under Attorney General Eric Holder where the U.S. government supplied guns to Mexican drug gangs.
When Russia came to the defense of Syria’s President Assad, fundamentalist Muslims armed and trained by the U.S. attacked into Syria and Iraq, calling themselves ISIS, and proceeded to torture, rape, behead and displace hundreds of thousands, including Christian minorities.
The Obama administration’s arming of Muslim militants was reported by The Los Angeles Times (3/27/16): “In Syria, militias armed by the Pentagon fight those armed by the CIA.”
On December 10, 2016, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard introduced a Bill to halt U.S. Arms sales to fundamental Muslim terrorists in Syria.
The United Nations has always had a mixed reputation, as attested to by President Dwight Eisenhower at the National Junior Chamber of Commerce, June 10, 1963: “The United Nations has seemed to be two distinct things to the two worlds divided by the iron curtain … To the free world it has seemed that it should be a constructive forum … To the Communist world it has been a convenient sounding board for their propaganda, a weapon to be exploited in spreading disunity and confusion.”
U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo announced the formation of the Commission on Unalienable Rights, July 8, 2019.
“Under the leadership of Eleanor Roosevelt, the 1948 Universal Declaration on Human Rights ended forever the notion that nations could abuse their citizens without attracting notice or repercussions. We must … be vigilant to ensure that human rights discourse not be corrupted or hijacked or used for dubious or malignant purposes … It’s a sad commentary on our times that more than 70 years after the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, gross violations continue throughout the world, sometimes even in the name of human rights. International institutions, designed and built to protect human rights have drifted from their original mission … The time is right for an informed review of the role of human rights in American foreign policy.”
Though in retrospect appearing naive, the United Nations originally began with the high ideals of preventing future wars.
The fourth President of the United Nations General Assembly was Philippine General Carlos Romulo, elected in 1948.
When the Soviet delegate Andrei Vishinsky opposed his election, saying “You are just a little man from a little country,” Romulo responded, “It is the duty of the little Davids of this world to fling the pebbles of truth in the eyes of the blustering Goliaths and force them to behave!”
General Carlos Romulo had served with General Douglas MacArthur in the Pacific.
He became the first Asian to win a Pulitzer Prize.
General Carlos Romulo wrote what at the time was obvious:
“Never forget Americans, that yours is a spiritual country. Yes, I know you’re a practical people. Like others, I’ve marveled at your factories, your skyscrapers, and your arsenals. But underlying everything else is the fact that America began as a God-loving, God-fearing, God-worshiping people.”
