Fox guards hens for human rights

A secret vote by the United Nations Human Rights Commission, which the U.S. has served on since the 1940s, kicked us off the body.

The United Nations replaced us with Sudan, one of the world's leading human rights abusers.

Congress should not give $8.2 billion to the U.N. or $67 million to UNESCO, which mismanaged billions. When our military serves in U.N. actions, U.S. commanding officers take this oath, "I affirm to exercise loyalty in the functions entrusted to me as a member in the service of the United Nations Organization, to discharge those functions and regulate my conduct to the interest of the United Nations, and not accept instructions in respect to the performance of my duties from any government or authority external to the Organization."

That contradicts the U.S. military oath "To defend and preserve the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic."

In 1994 Congress defeated an attempt to stop the transfer of our military to U.N. authority under secret presidential directive 25. Our Constitution does not authorize the president or Congress to transfer our military to any other jurisdiction.

"Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace" reveals the United Nations' threat to our constitution.

The United Nations voted against the U.S. installing a missile defense system to protect our nation. In 1997, 54 Congressmen endorsed Rep. Ron Paul's (R-Texas) "American Sovereignty Restoration Act."

The image of the United Nations as peacekeeper of the world is propaganda. In 1990 its budget was $15.6 billion of which the U.S. paid 25 percent. It is now 10 times that amount.

The 44 percent of the U.N. members that pay the minimum dues outvote the 80 percent of the countries that pay the U.N. budget.

The United Nations had 1,500 employees at its establishment in 1945; today it has more than 100,000 employees around the world. U.N. power does not reside on New York's East River; it is in the former League of Nations complex in Switzerland that has expanded to a mile-long building.

The independent watchdog U.N. Board of Auditors has reported irregularities and weak internal controls on U.N. operations annually.

Staff members of UNHCR, the refugee program, have embezzled millions. The United Nations is a multi-billion-dollar bureaucratic empire of agencies and employees around the globe.

The United Nations is trying to force the U.S. to charge our citizens a U.N. tax, to place our court system under the control of an international Court of Justice and our commerce under the control of the World Trade Organization.

The "mainline media" ignored all of these events. Wake up America. Get the U.S. out of the United Nations and the United Nations out of the U.S.! God save our Republic!
