The United Nations was founded October 24, 1945. A look at the founding of the organization and a brief review of its history, were followed by an analysis of the organization’s current make-up, which consists largely of countries that oppress minorities, often conducting or financing terrorism and jihad. The newly selected secretary general of the United Nations is Antonio Guterres of Portugal, who is proud of being a socialist. One of his latest roles was to orchestrate the massive move of hundreds of thousands of Muslims, dubbed ‘refugees’, to countries across Europe and the United States. The U.S., as a member of the U.N. Security Council, signed off on his selection despite his record. He is scheduled to assume the post January 1, 2017.
A look at the list of ‘accomplishments’ being hailed on this anniversary, shows that most have the effect of reducing national sovereignty, replacing it with international controls. Mr. Guterres has stated his top priorities as Secretary General will be more socialism around the world, more power for the U.N., more ‘global governance’, and more mass migration from the Third World to Western countries and ‘gender equality’. In other words, more of the same extremism that already has the world on the brink.
The current U.S. administration has worked to transfer control from our nation to the U.N. in many ways, supporting liberal ‘conventions’ that strip parental rights, gun rights and other fundamental rights under our Constitution. Most recently, the administration pushed for—and succeeded—in transferring control of the Internet from an independent agency in the U.S. to a U.N. agency that will likely reflect the make-up of U.N. member nations.
