UN's CHARTER FOR GLOBAL DEMOCRACY...
THE "FINAL SOLUTION" FOR AMERICAN
By: Tom DeWeese
"The bedrock of every country¹s international relations must be the
mission of using the United Nations system as the machinery for
working and acting together." Shridath Ramphal, co-chairman, UN
Commission on Global Governance.
"Nationhood as we know it will be obsolete,
all states will recognize a
single , global authority and National sovereignty wasn¹t such a great
idea after all....Strobe Talbott, U.S. Deputy Secretary of State in the
"It is simply not feasible for sovereignty to be exercised unilaterally
by individual nation-states, however powerful." Maurice Strong,
co-chairman, UN Commission on Global Governance.
United Nation¹s leadership has made no attempt to hide its contempt
for American independence and national sovereignty. On September 6,
2000, The United Nations will convene its Millennium Assembly in
New York City to restructure the UN in preparation for global governance.
The Assembly will bring together the largest gathering of world leaders
ever to meet under one roof. Their goal is to change the way governments
operate. The UN will be established as the central operating entity. All
governments will be redesigned to operate through the UN. Independent
sovereign states will essentially cease to exist. They will instead become
"partners" in global governance.
The UN¹s Charter for Global Democracy has been be created to
essentially replace the UN¹s fifty-year-old Charter. The Charter for Global
Democracy is written to establish the new procedures that will govern how
nations will interact with each other, as well as how they operate within
Republican leaders in the Congress, led by Senator Jesse Helms have
demanded that the UN reform itself or face losing U.S. support. Senator
Helms¹ idea of reform was to reduce bloated budgets, bureaucracies and
wasteful paper work. Instead, the UN has used the term "reform" to
a stronger UN that is "retooled" to become a global government. There
simply can be no other interpretation of the Charter.
We and everyone else lose our sovereignty.
In September, when literally all of the leaders of the world gather in
New York City for the UN¹s Millennium Assembly, they will meet for one
purpose to change the world. Global Governance under the control of the
United Nations will be established. World leaders will vote to give the UN
oversight of all of the earth¹s land, air and seas.
They will vote to give the UN oversight of international conflicts. They
will give the UN the power to be judge and jury over violators of
They will give the UN oversight of financial institutions, commerce,
trade relations, labor relations, education and private property. Existing
national, state and local governments will remain to serve as conduits to
locally carry out UN policy.
The Millennium Assembly is the final act in a UN drive for power that
began a decade ago. The UN has been preparing for global governance
over those ten years through a series of international conferences,
It¹s been five years since the UN released its blueprint for global
governance in a 1995 report called "Our Global Neighborhood." That
report detailed UN plans that will now be placed into action through the
Charter for Global Democracy which will be voted on and approved by
the world leaders at the Millennium Assembly.
First, the Charter will change the actual structure of the United
Nations. Officially, it calls for the consolidation of all
agencies to be placed under the direct authority of the UN. But Maurice
Strong, co-chairman of the UN Commission on Global Governance,
issued a 95 page report in 1997 which outlined the steps necessary to
restructure the UN to fulfill its mission of global governance.
That restructuring would include eliminating the veto power and permanent
member status of the Security Council. Such a move would almost
completely eliminate U.S. influence and power in the world body.
Second, Strong¹s report calls for the creation of a new UN body called
the Assembly of the People. This new body is to become the real power of the
UN. It will be populated by hand-picked, non-government organizations
(NGO¹s). These groups are actually nothing more than activists
private organizations with political agendas. The UN is the only power than can
recognize and sanction an official NGO organization.
They do not represent average people. They answer to no one but their
own agendas. They will not be elected to this post by anyone outside of the
Leading NGO¹s include radical environmental groups like the Sierra Club
and population-control groups like Planned Parenthood. Once the
of the People is in place, groups such as these will meet and plan UN
to govern us all. Strong¹s restructuring ideas are represented in the
for Global Democracy and will be voted on by the world leaders in September.
A key issue of UN leaders is the need for more money. Almost every
paper, report and statement by UN leaders lament its lack of funding to pay for
its massive new roll in global governance. Of particular concern is the
desire for independent funding that does not rely on donations and dues from
In 1996, then-UN Secretary General Boutros Boutros-Ghali publicly
suggesteda global tax to fund the UN. The idea was met with strong
opposition from the United States.
The UN retreated from the idea and indicated that it wasn¹t really
serious. Yet again, the idea is included in the Charter for Global Democracy.
Specifically, the Charter would give the UN domain over all of the
earth¹s land, air and seas. In addition it would give it the power to control
all natural resources, wild life, and energy sources, even radio waves. Such
control would allow the UN to place taxes on everything from
development; to fishing; to air travel (that tax is already collected); to
Anything that could be defined as using the earth¹s resources would be subject
The Charter also calls for the regulation by the UN of all transnational
corporations and financial institutions. In this way the UN would
control international markets and monetary policies.
A massive tax called the "Tobin Tax" has been suggested. This amounts
a tax or "fee" on every international financial transaction. This one
would generate an estimated $1.5 trillion for UN coffers. For the average
American it would have a direct effect on pension funds, IRA¹s and personal
Such taxes would be collected by the establishment of a global IRS.
Taxpayers in the United States well know the massive power held by our
But with the establishment of such a global power there would be no
appeal to elected representatives. There would be no chance of public
hearings to hold the agency accountable. There would be no control.
Clearly, implementation of the Charter for Global Democracy would
produce massive wealth for the UN, resulting in the concentration of massive
Such power would be controlled by the establishment of an international
UN army. The army would answer to no nation. It would have the power to
take action in any nation the UN directed it to.
The UN would have the power to force nations to house the soldiers on
their own soil. An international police state would replace national defense
The UN army is one of the main points to be voted on in the Charter for
Finally the Charter sets up a series of international rules based on
radical environmentalism that will control property and commerce.
It will require the enforcement of all UN "Human Rights" treaties,
of which even dictate how parents will raise their children.
To assure that these international laws are obeyed, the Charter also
calls for the establishment of an International Court of Justice that will be
compulsory for all nations.
The United States Constitution guarantees every American the right to a
trial by jury; the right to face our accusers and the right to full
disclosure of the charges against us.
Under the UN rules for the Criminal Court, none of these are
Most Americans believe that such a court is being established to bring
international outlaws like Sadam Hussein to justice.
That is not the case however. Under this new UN court, even private
citizens are subject to trial.
Will the United States fall for the UN¹s trap? Will our elected leaders
allow the Charter for Global Democracy to usurp our own Constitution?
The fact is many in Congress fail to see the UN as a threat. Ask your
elected representatives if any of this is possible and most will deny it as
simple paranoia from the "black helicopter" crowd.
But every word of this report has been taken from UN documents. The
Millennium Assembly will take place in September. The world leaders will
be there. And the Charter For Global Democracy will be voted on. What other
conclusion can be drawn?
Others will count on the Congress to refuse to ratify such a Charter.
That is probably true. But there is another danger. President Bill Clinton
has already stated his support for the Charter.
He has a history of ignoring Congress and implementing his agenda
through the use of Executive Order.
Several UN treaties have gone unratified by Congress, including the
Biodiversity Treaty and the Kyoto Global Warming Treaty. Yet, Bill
Clinton has already begun to enforce their provisions through Executive Order
and Congress has taken no action to stop him.
In 1776, with the stroke of a pen, the Declaration of Independence
marked the beginning of the greatest experiment in national government ever
conceived. Today, however, unless Congress stands united determined to
block not only the UN Charter, but also every effort to implement it it
will take only the stroke of Bill Clinton¹s lame-duck pen to change our
nation, and history forever.
