United Nations, Agenda 21, & Global Organizations
James Monroe, Monroe Doctrine
“In the wars of European powers in matters relating to themselves we have never taken any part, nor does it comport with our policy so to do…Our policy in regard to Europe…is, not to interfere in the internal concerns of any of its powers…”
John Dickinson, signer of the Constitution
“Let these truths be indelibly impressed on our minds: (1) that we cannot be happy without being free; (2) that we cannot be free without being secure in our property; (3) that we cannot be secure in our property if without our consent others may as by right take it away.”
George Washington’s “Farewell Address”
“As a very important source of strength and security, cherish public credit. One method of preserving it is to use it as sparingly as possible, avoiding occasions of expense by cultivating peace, but remembering also that timely disbursements to prepare for danger prevent much greater disbursements to repel it; avoiding likewise the accumulation of debt, not only by shunning occasions of expense, but by vigorous exertions in time of peace to discharge the debts which unavoidable wars may have occasioned, not ungenerously throwing upon posterity the burden which we ourselves ought to bear.”
“Avoid the necessity of those overgrown military establishments which, under any form of government, are inauspicious to liberty, and which are to be regarded as particularly hostile to republican liberty.”
“Observe good faith and justice toward all nations. Cultivate peace and harmony with all. Religion and morality enjoin this conduct.”
“Can it be that Providence has not connected the permanent felicity of a nation with its virtue?”
“Nothing is more essential than that permanent, inveterate antipathies against particular nations and passionate attachments for others should be excluded . . .”
“. . . just and amicable feelings toward all should be cultivated. The nation which indulges toward another an habitual hatred or an habitual fondness is in some degree a slave. It is a slave to its animosity or to its affection, either of which is sufficient to lead it astray from its duty and its interest. . . .”
“Antipathy in one nation against another disposes each more readily to offer insult and injury, to lay hold of slight causes of umbrage, and to be haughty and intractable when accidental or trifling occasions of dispute occur. Hence frequent collisions, obstinate, envenomed, and bloody contests. The nation prompted by ill will and resentment sometimes impels to war the government . . .”
“. . . likewise, a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils. Sympathy for the favorite nation, facilitating the illusion of an imaginary common interest in cases where no real common interest exists . . .”
“Infusing into one the enmities of the other, betrays the former into a participation in the quarrels and wars of the latter without adequate inducement or justification. It leads also to concessions to the favorite nation of privileges denied to others, which is apt doubly to injure the nation making the concessions by unnecessarily parting with what ought to have been retained, and by exciting jealousy, ill will, and a disposition to retaliate.”
“It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world.”
United Nations Charter
1. Nothing in the present Charter precludes the existence of regional arrangements or agencies for dealing with matters relating to the maintenance of international peace and security as are appropriate for regional action, provided that such arrangements are consistent with the Purposes and Principles of the United Nations.
1. The Security Council shall, where appropriate, utilize such regional arrangements or agencies for enforcement action under its authority. But no enforcement action shall be taken under regional arrangements or by regional agencies without the authorization of the Security Council. . . .
NATO Treaty (Washington DC 04 April 1949)
“The parties to this Treaty reaffirm their faith in the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations . . .”
“The Parties undertake, as set forth in the Charter of the United Nations, to settle any international dispute . . .and to refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force in any manner inconsistent with the purposes of the United Nations.”
“The parties agree that an armed attack against one or more of them in Europe or North America shall be considered an attack against them all, and consequently they agree that, if such an armed attack occurs, each of them, in exercise of the right of individual or collective self-defense recognized by Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations, will assist the Party or Parties so attacked by taking forthwith… such action as it deems necessary, including the use of armed force…”
NATO Handbook (February 1972)
“The signatory countries undertake, in conformity with the terms of the United Nations Charter. . .
The Treaty is an agreement between certain countries for their collective self-defense as provided for in Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations.”
“. . . it is a Treaty of alliance within the framework of the Charter of the United Nations . . .”
The Constitution Party steadfastly opposes American participation in any form of world government organization, including any world court under United Nations auspices;
calls upon the President, and Congress, to terminate United States membership in the United Nations, and its subsidiary organizations, and terminate U.S. participation in all so-called U.N. peace keeping operations;
bars the United Nations, and its subsidiaries, from further operation, including raising of funds, on United States territory.
The Constitution Party has long called for the U.S. exit of the U.N.
Agenda 21 is a comprehensive plan of utopian environmentalism, social engineering, and global political control that was initiated at the United Nations Conference on Environmental and Development (UNCED) held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1992.
Agenda 21 policy is being covertly advanced in local communities across the nation through the efforts of the International Council of Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) in cooperation with state and municipal elected officials and bureaucrats via local “sustainable development” policies such as Smart Growth, Wildlands Project, Resilient Cities, Regional Visioning Projects, and other “Green” or “Alternative” projects.
The Agenda 21 plan of “sustainable development” views private ownership, single family homes, private car ownership and individual travel choices, and privately owned farms as destructive to the environment. According to Agenda 21 policy, social justice is defined as the right and opportunity for all people to benefit equally from the resources afforded us by society and the environment which would be accomplished by a socialist/communist redistribution of wealth. It deems the national sovereignty of the United States of America to be an enabler of social injustice.
The Constitution Party recognizes the destructive nature of Agenda 21 toward our God-given, unalienable rights and hereby exposes to the public and public policy makers the dangerous intent of the plan. Neither the states nor any municipal civil government therein is legally bound by Agenda 21 because it has never been ratified by the United States Senate.
We propose that the United States repudiate any commitment, express or implied, to send U.S. troops to participate in foreign conflicts, whether unilaterally, under NATO auspices, or as a part of the United Nations “peace-keeping” operations. NATO serves no defensive purpose for the United States, and this country should withdraw from it.
