We're sure that all of you have seen an organizational chart, you know, the kind that shows who's at the top with little boxes and lines connecting them all the way down to the low-man-on-the-totem-pole.
Well, if we had a sheet of paper the size of a football field we might be able to draw an organizational chart for the United Nations and all its subsidiary organizations and bureaucracies. Even then we doubt we could get in all the NGOs (non- governmental organizations).
Most Americans, when they think about the United Nations, if they bother to think about it at all, probably think of a nice building in New York where all the muckety-mucks get together to argue over whether or not they have enough money for the poor children of the world, or whether some third-world nation should be admitted to membership, or whether the United States is contributing its fair share of the operating funds. A goodly number might think about how we need this forum to protect us from another devastating war.
There is, however, a growing number who are coming to understand the true nature of this beast from the sea... the sea being the masses of humanity that make up the nations which make up the United Nations.
"In the name of peace he will destroy many," is a rough quotation from Daniel 825 that speaks of the coming Antichrist. This same quotation might also be applied to the United Nations organization. Since it first came into being as an organization to guarantee peace to the world we have had more wars than in the preceding two centuries or more. Yet, look around you and see for yourself how much peace we have.
Americans have fought and died in Korea, in Vietnam, in the Sudan, in the Gulf War and are now in Macedonia, Afghanistan, etc. and we have never officially declared war in any of these areas and have never been allowed to bring any of them to a satisfactory conclusion. They have all been so-called UN Peacekeeping Operations.
But this is but a small part of the damage the UN has inflicted on our nation. It is the damage we can see because the connection to the UN is obvious. The greater damage has been inflicted, and is still ongoing, in areas where that connection has been purposely obscured.
In our last newsletter we quoted from a speech made by Mr. J. Gary Lawrence (a US government insider) in London on June 29, 1998, in which he openly acknowledged attempts to keep the American public from connecting certain actions being taken in communities across our nation to the UN Local Agenda 21 movement.
In that speech he referred to people like us as "conspiracy-fixated groups" who would "actively work to defeat any elected official who joined the 'conspiracy' by undertaking Local Agenda 21."
Even today, most Americans are likely unaware of the heavy concentration of Soviet agents or fellow-travelers who occupied high positions within our government during the Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman Administrations (and forward). As we have said on more that one occasion, Alger Hiss (later shown to have passed secrets to the Soviets) was our point man in San Francisco during the founding days of the UN and saw to the drafting of its Charter.
Then there was Harry Dexter White, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury and Soviet agent, who crafted the Bretton Woods Agreement (1944) creating the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and the General Agreement on Trade and Tariffs (GATT), measures that rob the US of its monetary gold, lead to continuing inflation and help finance many globalist schemes with US dollars.
John Foster Dulles, Secretary of State under Eisenhower and our delegate to the UN from 1945-1949, proposed in a speech on October 28, 1939, that America lead the transition to a new order of less independent, semi-sovereign states bound together by a league or federal union. While not certain, we believe it was Mr. Dulles who advised that treaties could be used to slip around the Constitution. In our opinion this is an erroneous assumption. Our Constitution does provide that treaties will become the law of the land, but any law passed by Congress is supposed to be consistent with the Constitution to be valid. Our Founding Fathers presumed the same logic would apply to treaties.
Archibald MacLaine, patriot and spokesman from North Carolina during the Constitutional ratification process said "When treaties are made they become as valid as legislative acts...provided it be consistent with the Constitution."
Our journey down this path did not begin, however, with the Roosevelt/Truman Administrations, nor even with the Woodrow Wilson Administration and its Federal Reserve Act which put US banking into the hands of a power elite. Dennis L. Cuddy, Ph.D, begins his Chronology of the New World Order with an entry headed "1902 Daniel Coit Gilman named first president, Carnegie Institution" and points out that Gilman invited Fabian socialists Beatrice and Sidney Webb to John Hopkins University to indoctrinate the faculty in socialistic ideals. A comment by Robert H. Goldsborough following this entry said "Fabian socialism['s]... strategy for imposing socialism on a nation was to do so gradually and secretively through infiltration and permeation of the parliament, the government bureaucracy, churches, universities, the media, unions, etc..." and we know from John Dewey's comments, the public schools.
The next entry in Dr. Cuddy's Chronology talks about an entry in the minutes of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace which reads 'Is there any way known to man more effective than war, to so alter the life of an entire people?' Norman Dodd, who headed up the Congressional Reece Committee investigation in the 1950s, reported that the Endowment trustees discussed how they might involve the US in a war by controlling the State Department. "Dodd testified that after America entered World War I, the Endowment sent Wilson a telegram advising him to see that the war did not end too quickly; and, with the help of the Rockefeller Foundation, the Endowment planned to gain control of American education and to alter the teaching of American history in order to prevent a return to the way of life as it had been prior to the war."
Dr. Cuddy's Chronology provides connecting-links from there forward. The shooting wars we have been involved in seem to have been diversions to keep our minds off the real war that has been going on behind the scenes, the one that is very close to canceling our Constitution and costing us our freedoms.
This war, that began behind closed doors in board rooms and backrooms, is now being waged in our neighborhoods. Through Local Agendas 21 that are called Smart Growth, Growth Management, Region 2020, Comprehensive Planning or something else with a nice sound to it, we are having our rights to our personal property stripped away under the pretense of "saving our environment."
These movements are being implemented in every state in the union in one form or another. Their success is dependent on a couple of laws our "friends" in Congress pushed through in response to UN "treaties" The Endangered Species Act and The Clean Waters Act, both of which are probably unconstitutional in the strict sense of the Constitution, but who bothers to look at the Constitution any more... except when it can be used to serve some socialist agenda.
The Constitution provides a strong barrier to those who want to do away with the private control of personal property. Globalists needed some laws on the books that would help get around that barrier. At the time these laws were enacted everything sounded good and proper. We are a compassionate and caring people and we want to preserve our environment and live-and-let-live with the other species that share this planet with us. We could not envision the way these laws could be twisted by the bureaucrats writing the regulations. We never thought we'd see the day when some fish would take precedence over people for the water in the Klamath Basin, or when some spotted owl would be worth more than the livelihoods of thousands of timber workers and their families.
We're still being lied to and we're still believing the lies! I recently came upon an article by Derry Brownfield entitled Smart Growth - People per Acre. I think it is worth repeating here.
Over the past few years, we have discussed 'SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES,' a term used by the politically correct elite for our future cities. Cities without automobiles, no suburbs and no large homes on 2-acre lots. Sustainable communities tie in well with Agenda 21 and the Wildlands Project, whereby 50 percent of the United States will be reverted back to the wild and our entire population will live in these areas of "smart growth." The plan is to force rural folks into these already crowded areas and the move is well underway as farmers and ranchers are being forced off their land. Missouri's Governor has issued a Smart Growth Executive Order and our colleges are holding seminars and teaching courses on the subject. [See our newsletter Vol. I No.4 - 09/01/96 - for a look at a city designed by UN planners.]
The following figures have been taken from the Sierra Club website www.sierraclub.org/sprawl/community/ enviroimpacts.asp.
For example, Minnesota's Twin Cities density is 1,800 people per square mile but with smart growth it should grow to 3,000 people per square mile. Portland now has a density of 3,000 people per square mile but should be as dense as Los Angeles 5,600 per square mile. LA should improve its density to that of Chicago's 16,000 per square mile. The Sierra Club website indicates that the efficient urban density is 500 households per acre. An acre is only slightly over 200 feet square so Manhattan, with only 52,000 people per square mile, has a ways to go before it reaches smart-growth perfection.
The Sierra Club web page compares four different densities Dense urban is 400 households per acre. Efficient urban is only 100 households per acre. Efficient suburban is 10 households per acre and then there is "SPRAWL" defined as one household per acre. At 100 households per acre our entire US population would fit into Los Angeles. The entire world population could live in the state of Virginia.
This sounds so ridiculous that most people won't believe it can happen. The folks behind these screwball ideas have huge amounts of money along with government grants to carry out their plans and they are very serious in their beliefs. If anybody can put a stop to their lunatic ideas it's not going to be the farmer or rancher who are trying to pay off the mortgage on the home place. It will be the multi-millionaire who has built a $3 million home on five acres. These people won't like living in a sustainable community any better than us farmers and ranchers and they have the money to fight for their freedom. It's our job to convince them that this is taking place before their very eyes.
As for me and my house - I still want land, lots of land underneath the skies above, so - please, don't fence me in."

Mr. Brownfield talked about the Sierra Club in his article. The Sierra Club is one of the UN's NGOs. There was a time I thought it was a good organization. I bought its calendars and probably even made a donation or two. No more! It is an extremely well financed lobby group for the United Nation's Agenda 21 disguised as an environment protector. Many of its workers are honest, well meaning people, the kind Lenin referred to as useful idiots, as most of us have been at one time or another.
Most (if not all) of the other major environmental organizations, such as the Nature Conservancy, the National Wildlife Federation, Green Cross (headed by Mikhail Gorbachev), etc. are also working toward the globalist agenda, as are most state environmental groups.
It would take several volumes to connect all the dots or to fit all the pieces of the giant puzzle into place, but the picture is there for anyone willing to open his eyes and look at it.
Pointing out the problem is simple. Pointing toward a solution is a bit more difficult. Prayer is an excellent first step. Most of us usually save that for the last, after we've exhausted all other recourse. Ron Paul's HR 1146 "The American Sovereignty Restoration Act" is another good approach and you should maintain pressure on your Congressman to co-sponsor this legislation. We also need to look at what our local elected officials are doing in the way of "smart growth" efforts and try to get them out of the "useful idiot" category.
