The United Nations was not even three years old when there were already attempts to change its charter and give it more power. Supporting those efforts were Idaho Democrat Sen. Glen H. Taylor and Republican Sen. Alexander Wiley of Wisconsin who introduced a Senate resolution to do just that:
“Whereas, in order to achieve universal peace and justice, the present Charter of the United Nations should be changed to provide a true world government constitution” — a New World Order.
There’s nothing new about “New World Order” (NWO) or “One World Government” (OWG). Alexander the Great had his idea, as did Rome, the British Empire, Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan. The world today is filled with groups promoting the concept.
But the Founding Fathers crafted a Constitution that they hoped would treasure American national sovereignty. George Washington in his Farewell Address urged the nation to avoid foreign entanglements.
“Observe good faith and justice towards all nations; cultivate peace and harmony with all,” he said, declaring that involvement in European causes are “foreign to our concerns.”
He did approve of commercial treaties, but warned “against the insidious wiles of foreign influence… (which) the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake, since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government.”
On Sept. 13, 1949, Sens. Taylor and Wiley introduced the Declaration of Interdependence Resolution 66 to the Senate Subcommittee on Foreign Relations, with Sen. Wiley calling it “a consummation devoutly to be wished for,” adding, “either change the United Nations, or change or create, by a separate convention, a world order.”
Sen. Taylor admitted, “We would have to sacrifice considerable sovereignty to the world organization to enable them to levy taxes in their own right to support themselves.”
Decades later on the eve of America’s 200th birthday, Idaho Sen. Frank Church endorsed another Declaration of Interdependence, drafted by historian Henry Steele Commager that was presented to the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia. It began with:
“To establish a new world order of compassion, peace, justice and security, it is essential that mankind free itself from the limitations of national prejudice, and acknowledge … that all people are part of one global community….”
The document’s penultimate paragraph points to its ultimate goal:
“We affirm that a world without law is a world without order, and we call upon all nations to strengthen and to sustain the United Nations and its specialized agencies, and other institutions of world order….”
At a ceremonial signing at Independence Hall the following January, the manifesto was endorsed by 124 senators and congressmen — mostly Democrats — with scant support from GOP members. A list of mostly northeastern non-governmental organizations and United Nations agencies also signed on. It was a push towards One World Government.
(Interesting to note that congressmen who swore to uphold the U.S. Constitution would be willing to trade it for a world government constitution).
The Philadelphia declaration was a long-range plan that included reaching “as many students as possible at all grade levels in our primary and secondary schools to carry an awareness of Interdependence into America’s third century. These very students will be called upon to make decisions based on the ideas set forth in the Declaration and the actions initiated by participating bodies.”
Continuing, “The World Affairs Council of Philadelphia will expand its already well-established school program, and work to ensure that Declaration and its precepts will be included in the curricula and the texts of our schools.” Among organizations supporting the effort was the National Education Association (NEA).
Congressman John Ashbrook, R-Ohio, strongly rejected the declaration: “Unlike the Declaration of Independence, whose great hallmarks are guarantees of individual personal freedom and dignity for all Americans and an American Nation under God, the declaration abandons those principles in favor of cultural relativism, international citizenship, and supremacy over all nations by a world government.”
There have been numerous such documents promoting “Interdependence” before and after the 1976 proclamation.
The concept of one government controlling the whole world goes back millennia with a variety of secret societies. In modern times, countless organizations worldwide — private and governmental — advocate either outright world government, or just pieces of the overall plan.
Among the most secretive and powerful are the Illuminati, Bilderbergs, Bohemian Club, Club of Rome, Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), Rhodes Trust, Skull and Bones, and Trilateral Commission. Also constantly mentioned are the Jesuits, Catholic Church, Masons, Rothschilds and Zionists. The list goes on.
The Illuminati was founded in 1776 by Adam Weishaupt, a German law professor, philosopher and Jesuit in Ingolstadt, Bavaria. According to New Advent, a Catholic source, the Illuminati’s real objective was “the elaboration and propagation of a new popular religion and, in the domain of politics, the gradual establishment of a universal democratic republic.”
Allegedly the secretive group was financed by the Jewish Rothschilds, with Weishaupt calling for “abolition of all ordered national governments, abolition of inheritance, abolition of private property, abolition of patriotism, abolition of the individual home and family life as the cell from which all civilizations have stemmed, and abolition of all religions established and existing so that the ideology of totalitarianism may be imposed on mankind.”
In 1913, the Federal Reserve — which is neither federal nor a reserve — was established, after secret planning in 1910 on Jekyll Island, Georgia by a group of bankers and politicians. The power of creating money was then transferred from the federal government to private bankers that many now blame for a U.S. national debt approaching 20 trillion dollars.
The CFR, founded in 1921 in New York City by Colonel Edward M. House, chief advisor to President Woodrow Wilson, has been called “the most powerful agent of United States foreign policy outside the State Department.”
A CFR study published in 1959, openly declared its true purpose of “building a New International Order (which) must be responsive to world aspirations for peace, (and) for social and economic change…an international order (code for world government)…including states labeling themselves as ‘Socialist.'”
Another source said, “One could safely say that a nutshell descriptor of the CFR is ‘to bring about a New World Order through the manipulation of U.S. foreign policy and relations and through international economic interdependence.'”
The Trilateral Commission, founded in 1973 by big names like David Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brzezinski wields enormous power behind the curtain. Senator Barry Goldwater (R-AZ) wrote that they “found Jimmy Carter to be their ideal candidate. They helped him win the nomination, and the presidency.”
Seven months before the Democratic nominating convention, Gallup Poll found less than four percent of Democrats favored Carter for President. Another source claimed the Trilateral Commission “can make or break any president or candidate for president.”
Most organizations promoting OWG focus on just parts of the big picture, without mentioning a One World agenda. Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for example spends billions on eradicating diseases plaguing mankind, such as AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria; the World Council of Churches seeks cooperation between religions; and the UN’s main purpose is to promote peace.
Virtually all of them offer noble-sounding mission statements such as, “promote commitment by the international community to prevent and respond early and effectively to threats of genocide and other mass atrocities.”
“To expose global environmental problems and to promote solutions that are essential to a green and peaceful future.”
“Human beings are at the center of concerns for sustainable development. They are entitled to a healthy and productive life in harmony with nature.”
Idaho’s Glen Taylor saw the UN as a path to One Word Government. Frank Church — long a staunch supporter of defending American interests — was also willing to endorse relinquishing U.S. sovereignty to a One World Government.
Throughout history, all great civilizations that controlled their worlds have failed. “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it,” philosopher-poet George Santayana said.
Gary Allen in his book “The Rockefeller File” writes, “Certainly the most visible pathway toward World Government is the organization that was created in 1945 by the Rockefellers for precisely this purpose — the United Nations”
So what’s really going on behind the scenes? What about all those conspiracy theories?
We just need Toto to pull back the curtain.
