The Enemy At America's Gate ... J. D. Longstreet
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
Like the barbarians at the gates of Rome, the UN stands at America's portal raging against the freedom of the people of the country they love to hate.
Ofttimes, the "sappers" they deploy against America stoop to ridiculous levels to focus more of the world's disfavor on the UN's despised target.
Like this, for example:
Recently, the UN demanded that the US give Mount Rushmore back the Native Americans. Somehow, the UN didn't mention Manhattan Island upon which most of New York City stands. Talk about a rip-off!
You may recall that the Island of Manhattan was bought from the American Indians for only twenty-four dollars in beads by Peter Minuit a Dutchman and the leader of the settlers there at the time. The, uh, purchase was made on May 24th,1626.
S. James Anaya is the American James J. Lenoir Professor of Human Rights Law and Policy at the University of Arizona's James E. Rogers College of Law. In March 2008, he was appointed by the United Nations as its Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms of Indigenous Peoples.
I know. This is ridiculous enough, but understand -- the UN has only begun its meddling in the affairs of the United States. Wait until they demand the confiscation of all small arms owned by US citizens. That's your hand guns, shot guns, and rifles my fellow Americans. That move is just around the corner as both the US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, and the US President, Barack Hussein Obama, both support ratification by the US Senate of the UN Small Arms Treaty. If passed, this treaty would supercede the US Constitution. THAT would make the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution null and void!
I don't like, nor do I trust the United Nations. It is corrupt, beyond measure, and it causes far more problems than it solves around the world.
The UN, as some have suggested, has long been a safe harbor for terrorist and oppressive regimes which target America as the enemy.
The UN exists only to provide cushy offices and grand homes, for their officials, and… diplomatic immunity while they are here, on US soil. It also provides a headquarters for practically every enemy country on the globe to base their spying operations against the US. It is the only spot on the globe that bloodthirsty dictators can come together with total immunity.
I am embarrassed that my country, the US, is a member of the UN and I take every opportunity to plead with my government’s officials to do all in their power to get the US out of the UN.
There MAY have been a time when an organization, such as the UN (when it began), was necessary. NO longer. It has become the thing we feared most… an enemy of the US. And that enemy is perched on a riverbank in New York City. Yes, I know the UN owns the land their building stands upon, but the fact that it’s proximity, to US soil, is so close… makes me shudder with revulsion.
So what should the US do? First… get out! Look, we know who our friends are. They are the people with whom we need to bond in a mutual defense treaty, of some sort, and allow the UN to collapse of it’s own corrupt weight.
I am sick and tired of the UN, and the political Left, insisting that we get that proverbial “permission slip” from them to take care of problems in the world that affect the US. The US doesn’t need the UN and, I daresay, the majority of Americans do not wish to continue our membership in that disreputable organization.
If the US withdrew it’s funding of the UN, I suspect the UN would eventually have to close its doors. We pay at least 22% of all the expenses of the UN and we provide the finest troops in the world for their peacekeeping (?) missions.
Does the fact that the US pays such a large amount of the expenses of the UN bother me? You bet it does! If former Senator Jesse Helms, of North Carolina, was still in the Senate, I suspect that amount would be nearly cut in half, if we didn’t withhold payment, altogether. The latter would suit me. Every time the US treasury cuts a check for the UN it just feels like aiding and abetting the enemy.
The UN does not reflect the values the American citizen holds dear. We have no business in an organization bent so completely toward our destruction.
Yes, I DO understand we may be trying to live into the old proverb,” Keep your friends close, and your enemies even closer”. That may be. But the UN is just too close for comfort!
The United Nations, in my opinion, has one goal in mind and that is -- global governance -- a one-world government with the UN as a global, tyrannical, dictator.
Let me be clear. It makes no difference if Mr. Obama is reelected -- or -- if Mr. Romney is elected in November-- the United States WILL remain a member and primary financier of the United Nations and its nefarious agenda. I find that fact sickening!
I am not an advocate for an isolationist America. I want to be absolutely clear on that. We have already seen how a policy of leadership from behind, Mr. Obama's foreign policy, can lead to a global conflagration. If the US finds it needs to be engaged in worldwide diplomacy, then it should align itself with a group of like-minded nations such as the the United Kingdom -- not with Russia, China, and every tin pot dictator on the globe.
At a point, not too distant in the future of this planet, the United States and the United Nations will go to war against each other. That is inevitable. What the people of the United States and the people of the United Nations want is two entirely different things. The people of the US want freedom and liberty. The people of the United Nations want a socialist dictatorship spanning the globe.
It is critical for freedom to survive on earth that the US withdraw from the United Nations and recognize the UN as the threat to world wide freedom that it is.
