The United Nations was adopted in 1945 and promoted as the "world's last hope for peace." Our Senate accepted the treasonous membership terms of the UN charter: "The Members of United Nations agree to accept and carry out the decisions of the Security Council in accordance with the present Charter." Soon afterward, the equally treasonous United Nations Participation Act was included: "The President shall not be deemed to require the authorization of Congress" to send American forces to "carry out the decisions of the UN Security Council."
Contrary to Supreme Court rulings, John Foster Dulles claimed: "Congressional laws are invalid if they do not conform to the Constitution, whereas treaty laws can override the Constitution. Treaties, for example, can take powers away from Congress and give them to the President, they can take power from the states and give them to the Federal Government, or to some international body, and they can cut across the rights given the people by the constitutional Bill of Rights." Nonsense! The Constitution states that all treaties "shall be made be in pursuance thereof [the Constitution]", not to "override" it. Senators are under oath to protect the Constitution.
Alexander Hamilton wrote that treaties "shall not change the Constitution."
Thomas Jefferson stated: "if treaty-making power is boundless, then we have no Constitution."
The recent UN Arms Trade Treaty before the Senate was intended to effectively repeal the Second Amendment by criminalizing civilian firearm ownership with Obama's support.
Ambassador J. Reuben Clark, who wrote the speeches that defeated the League of Nations, warned: "Not only does the [UN] Charter Organization not prevent future wars, but it makes it practically certain that we shall have future wars. It takes from us the power to declare them, to choose the side on which we shall fight, to determine what forces and military equipment we shall use in the war, and to control and command our sons who do the fighting. The charter is a war document, not a peace document." Of Course! Warmongering, war-profiteering, multi-national corporations rake in trillions of dollars annually from wars; none from peace. Congress should get us out of the UN.
