UN Politics: A Rigged Game; Current Appeals to Increase U.S. Influence at the UN to Advance Our National Interests Are Dangerous Ploys Meant to Draw Us Further into the World Government Trap. (United Nations)


Jasper, William F., The New American


Should the U.S. forcefully "re-engage" the United Nations and make a determined effort to use the UN to advance democracy throughout the world? That is the party line of America's foreign policy establishment. It is a refrain that has remained virtually unchanged since the UN's founding in 1945. But the chorus of internationalist elites who sing this tried and trite tune have added some new voices and a few new themes.

In October 2002, a task force co-sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and Freedom House (FH) released a report entitled Enhancing U.S. Leadership at the United Nations that provides the new sheet music and conductor's notes for the revamped refrain. The prestigious "bipartisan task force," led by Rep. David Dreier (R-Calif.) and Lee Hamilton, a former Democratic representative from Indiana, recommends that the U.S. dramatically beef up its UN diplomatic corps, adopt an aggressive lobbying strategy at the world body, build a coalition of democracies, lavish more funding on UN programs, and more readily ratify UN treaties. "The United States should work to strengthen UN activism on issues related to human rights, democracy, security, and the fight against terrorism," says the task force report.

Mr. Hamilton, a former chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee (and a longtime CFR member), boils it all down to practical hard-ball politics. "We should practice a little old-time politics," he says. "We should be working the [UN's] back rooms very hard to promote the democracy agenda." The policy elite promoting this theme of deeper "engagement" with the UN know that the United Nation is not a democracy; it is a conspiracy. Or, rather, the UN is a vehicle constructed and promoted by a conspiracy to concentrate world power in the hands of an oligarchy -- all in the name of global democracy.

Conspiracy, Not Democracy

The UN was born in treason and conspiracy. The revered UN Charter, recall, was drafted at the 1944 Dumbarton Oaks conference under the direction of one of our nation's most infamous traitors: Alger Hiss. One of the top Soviet agents in our State Department, Hiss was really working for Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin, one of the most ruthless, genocidal megalomaniacs in world history. Working side by side with Hiss on the Charter were Russia's top diplomat-agents V. M. Molotov, Andrei Vyshinsky, and Andrei Gromyko. Also assisting in this plot were 15 key State and Treasury Department officials (including Victor Perlo, Nathan Silvermaster, Lauchlin Curie, and Noel Field) who, like Hiss, were later exposed by official investigations as members of secret Communist cells in Washington.

Following the Dumbarton Oaks conference, Hiss served as top adviser to the ailing President Roosevelt at the Yalta summit with Stalin, where he worked in favor of the Communists to arrange more concessions on the UN Charter. Finally, Hiss helped put the finishing touches on the Charter at the UN's founding conference in San Francisco, where he served as acting secretary-general. And it was Hiss who personally carried the Charter to Washington for Senate ratification at the conclusion of the conference.

Equally important as the San Francisco conference was the 1944 Bretton Woods conference, which established the UN system's economic arms: the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank. Heading up this effort were Hiss' fellow Soviet agents Harry Dexter White (the first to head the IMF) and Virginius Frank Coe, assisted by the famous British socialist economist John Maynard Keynes. White and Coe placed other Communists in these institutions, which became the means for siphoning billions of dollars from American taxpayers to finance socialist, communist, and fascist programs and regimes. At the UN itself, Hiss picked for key posts U.S. citizens who were Communist agents. Many more foreign Communists were also brought in to serve in the UN bureaucracy, where they joined still more Soviet agents in the diplomatic corps of the various countries.
