There have been rumors going around concerning the arrival of U.N. troops at U.S. military bases. Conspiracy theories abound which suggests peacekeeping troops will be used to confiscate weapons from American citizens in the final stage to merge the U.S. into a globalist world order headed by the United Nations.
The evidence however is overwhelming when considering how deeply entangled the U.S. has become in United Nations affairs. For instance, Loretta Lynch and Barack Obama have initiated a program called the Strong Cities Network, which is the product of a U.N. think tank called the Institute for Strategic Dialogue. The purpose of the Strong Cities Network is to combat home grown extremism while giving the U.N. law enforcement capabilities over our cities. While many would think this makes sense in the age of terror, this author has described many times who this administration, and the U.N. indecently, considers being the extremists. Another example is the numerous treaties proposed by the U.N. which would surrender U.S. sovereignty to a world governing body; an example is the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty.
Our armed forces have been reduced considerably over the past several decades and under President Obama, this process has accelerated. The U.N. Arms Trade Treaty seeks to strengthen this law by giving the U.N. jurisdiction over all arms, including those in the hands of U.S. civilians. Many believe that this treaty wouldn’t affect the rights of U.S. gun owners; however, with a U.S. military diminished in size and scope and an international army being funded by our own government through established law, not to mention the haphazard manner in which our lawmakers ignore our constitution, there is little to prevent the disarming of U.S. citizens at the hands of the United Nations. There are provisions of the Arms Trade Treaty that suggest lawful legitimate use of firearms would be protected; however, self defense and the right to over throw tyrannical governments are not considered human rights by U.N. bureaucrats .
Is the United States losing its sovereignty to a world governing body? Sadly, the answer to that question is yes and it is a process that started many years ago with something called The United Nations Participation Act which was signed into law on December 20, 1945.
This law committed the United States to full participation in the U.N. while authorizing the president to appoint representatives and commit the United States military to conflicts based on U.N. objectives. To be more specific, congress would retain the power to determine the size and terms of military deployments but the power to determine what would constitute the type of crisis warranting their use would be solely up to the United Nations Security Council. That is a huge loss of American sovereignty in and of itself because the power to wage war, according to the U.S. Constitution, rests with the United States Congress alone. It was because of the provisions of this law that President Truman was able to commit troops to the Korean War without the consent of congress and instead, the vote of the U.N. Security Council on the pretext of an international emergency. The same could be said for many of the wars and police actions that would soon follow.
Finally, an act passed by our congress concerning the United Nations that should have all Americans concerned because it deals with the very heart of the liberties we hold dear is the Arms Control and Disarmament Act of 1961, or Public Law 87-297. This law calls for the complete disarming of the U.S. military as a sovereign force and the merging of our troops into a global, U.N. peacekeeping force. The basic premise of this law is to give all policing and military powers to an international force governed by the United Nations.
