The United Nations' charter was drafted in the Garden Room of San Francisco's Fairmont Hotel.
Eisenhower's delegate to the United Nations, Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., sent a letter to every member state, December 30, 1955:
"I propose that God should be openly and audibly invoked at the United Nations ...
I do so in the conviction that we cannot make the United Nations into a successful instrument of God's peace without God's help -- and that with His help we cannot fail.
To this end I propose that we ask for that help."
U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson stated October 1956:
"This nation, on several occasions, has appealed to the United Nations to open the General Assemblies with an appeal to the Almighty ...
Some months ago, Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., wrote a letter to the seventy-five members of the United Nations appealing to them to open those meetings with an appeal to the Almighty."
Unfortunately, the United Nations never acted on Lodge's proposal.
Instead of prayer or a chapel, the U.N. installed a Room of Quiet with an enormous block of magnetic iron and an abstract painting.
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."
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 from the day the:
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."
Alger Hiss was a part of the U.S. Secretary of State's delegation which attended the Yalta Conference, February 4-11, 1945, where F.D.R. gave a large portion of Europe to be controlled by the Soviet Union, sentencing millions to live under a totalitarian dictatorship.
The person who accused Alger Hiss was a former Soviet spy Whittaker Chambers.
Soviet spy Whittaker Chambers had become a senior editor of TIME Magazine, with the intent of influencing American public policy by subtly disseminating fake-news propaganda.
This was a Cold War tactic called "psychological warfare" -- if you could deceive and demoralize your enemy and take away their will to fight, they would be easier to defeat.
The Old Testament Book of Joshua, chapter 9, gave an account of how the Gibeonites successfully deceived the Israelite army.
Deceptive warfare was described in Sun Tzu's Art of War (6th century BC):
"All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when we are able to attack, we must seem unable ... when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away ... lure him; feign disorder ...
Supreme excellence consists of breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting."
Hadith Sahih al-Bukhari described how Kaab Ibn al-Ashraf was preparing to fight Mohammed, and he kept his camp strong and difficult to gain access to:
“'Who is willing to kill Ka’b bin al-Ashraf who has hurt Allah and His Apostle?'
Thereupon Mohammed bin Maslama got up saying, 'O Allah’s Apostle! Would you like that I kill him?'
The Prophet said, 'Yes.'
Mohammed bin Maslama said, 'Then allow me to say a (false) thing (i.e. to deceive Kab).'
The Prophet said, 'You may say it.'" (Hadith al-Bukhari, Vol. 5, No. 369, cf. Ka’b bin al-Ashraf)
Deceptive warfare evolved into 5th Generation Warfare, which is getting your enemy to surrender without them even being aware that they were in a war.
Following this is something new called "6th Generation Warfare," as mentioned in Wired Magazine's article "Hacking the Human Brain: The Next Domain of Warfare" (12/11/12):
"It's been fashionable in military circles to talk about cyberspace as a "fifth domain" for warfare, along with land, space, air and sea ...
... But there's a sixth and arguably more important war-fighting domain emerging: the human brain ...
It’s about involuntarily penetrating, shaping, and coercing the mind in the ultimate realization of Clausewitz’s definition of war: compelling an adversary to submit to one’s will.
And the most powerful tool in this war is brain-computer interface (BCI) technologies, which connect the human brain to devices."
This is also called "Cognitive Warfare." ZeroHedge published the article "NATO's Plans to Hack Your Brain" (12/15/21):
"The US-led NATO ... described ... 'weaponization of brain sciences,' the new method involves 'hacking the individual' by exploiting 'the vulnerabilities of the human brain' in order to implement more sophisticated 'social engineering' ...
... A 2020 NATO-sponsored study of this new form of warfare clearly explained ...
'Cognitive warfare’s objective is to make everyone a weapon.'
'The brain will be the battlefield of the 21st century,' the report stressed. 'Humans are the contested domain,' and 'future conflicts will likely occur amongst the people digitally.'"
Whittaker Chambers had worked with communist spies inside of Democrat President Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal Administration.
Chambers was suddenly shocked when several of his fellow communist spies, who had shared with him their disillusionment with Stalin's brutal purges, were found suicided--an assassination made to look like a suicide.
In 1937, he went into hiding, then in 1939, he decided to defect to U.S. authorities and expose his communist activities and connections.
The FBI, though, waited until 1945 to meet with him.
In 1948, Whittaker Chambers testified before the House Un-American Activities Committee, naming 18 current and former government employees as Communist spies or sympathizers.
Chambers died in 1961.
Ronald Reagan remarked at Eureka College in Eureka, Illinois, February 6, 1984:
"An editor of TIME magazine, Whittaker Chambers, in public testimony in 1948 named former high U.S. Government officials as spies.
He was not believed at first, but the ... overwhelming evidence led a jury to convict one of those former officials of perjury. In Chambers’ autobiography, “Witness,” he added a sequel.
Chambers marked the beginning of his personal journey away from communism on the day that he was suddenly struck by the sight of his infant daughter’s ear as she sat there having breakfast ... He said, he realized that such intricacy, such precision could be no accident, no freak of nature ...
He didn’t know it at the time, in that moment, God—the finger of God had touched his forehead. And that is why Chambers would write that faith, not economics, is the central problem of our age ...
The western world does not know it, but it already possesses the answer to this problem, he said, but only provided that its faith in God ... is as great as communism’s belief in material power."
President Ronald Reagan posthumously awarded Chambers 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."
Whitaker Chambers had named Alger Hiss, the Secretary-General at the United Nations Charter Conference, as a communist spy.
In 1946, John D. Rockefeller, Jr., whose father was a globalist businessman and 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 sharia 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 sharia Islam, effectively enforcing "dhimmi" status on non-Muslims worldwide.
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 sharia 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.
U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo announced formation of 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."
