Anti UN Movement Goes Global. Are Their Days Numbered?

The rise of populism and success of Brexit is good news for growing political movement

Supporters of American sovereignty have worked for 60 years to get the United States out of the United Nations.  Now their movement is going global and is closer than ever to victory.

What is the “Covenant of Democratic Nations” and could it end the U.N.’s plans for a one-world government?

Getting the United States out of the United Nations has been an article of conservative faith since the one-world government body was established.  Originally led by the John Birch Society and Eagle Forum’s Phyllis Schlafly, the sovereignty movement eventually grew into the U.S. political mainstream.

But because the U.N. has grown so radical and dangerous, the movement to abolish the body has now grown outside U.S. borders.  Long-simmering anger over the U.N.’s anti-Israel stance finally boiled over in December 2016, leading American and Australian foreign policy leaders to create the Covenant.

The New American reported:

The figurative straw that broke the camel’s back for organizers appears to have been UN Security Council resolution 2334 declaring the presence of Jews in parts of Jerusalem to be a violation of supposed “international law.” The move sparked outrage across the political spectrum. Even stalwart neo-conservatives and globalists jumped on the bandwagon to defund the UN. On Capitol Hill, interest in protecting America and liberty from the UN has surged since that vote. The “Covenant of Democratic Nations” agenda also has strong support among certain Jewish and Zionist groups seeking to defend Israel against the constant UN demonization.”

The Covenant plans to establish itself as a pro-democracy counter to the U.N.  With the U.S. withdrawn from the U.N., the U.N. loses it largest source of funding and would soon collapse.

The League of Nations outlived its usefulness during the Hitler regime. After the War, the League was replaced by the United Nations. The United Nations has outlived its usefulness and must be replaced with a new international body, one comprised solely of those nations governed by democratic principles, devoted to genuine democracy, equality, and peaceful relations throughout the world,” reads a statement from the group.

“The United States should defund and withdraw from the United Nations and reconstitute the movement to achieve world peace for all in a new world body: The Covenant of Democratic Nations,” they write. “The Covenant of Democratic Nations will review, re-ratify, amend, or nullify all acts and resolutions of the United Nations and its agencies creating a new body of long-overdue, reformed, and updated international law. Some suggest that the body may even sunset its own existence after its reform work is done.”

Author Edwin Black, founder of the Covenant, writing in The Times of Israel, explains his plan:

A prime mission of the new world body would be to re-ratify, amend, or nullify all acts and resolutions of the United Nations and its agencies such as UNESCO. Thus, the Covenant would create a new body of long-overdue, reformed, clarified, and updated international law. Just as unjust American laws perpetrating slavery, Jim Crow, segregation, and institutional inequality were overturned, updated, and reformed during the civil rights era and right through our present decade, so too, the damage, inequity, and misuse of international law and process would be overturned by the CDN. Sensibly, most CDN nations would remain as vestigial members of the UN overseeing its collapse from economic and bureaucratic processes just as was done when the League of Nations was dissolved after World War Two and replaced with the present UN.”

The Covenant held a kickoff event in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 23rd with follow-up events in New York, Palm Beach, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Detroit, Canberra, Melbourne, and Sydney.

The group also has the support of U.S. Congressman Trent Franks, former U.S. Civil Rights Commission Director Kenneth Marcus, and Australian Sen. Malcolm Roberts.

    I think the underlying concept of the UN is a good one. Unfortunately it has morphed into a monster. I would hope the baby is not thrown out with the bathwater and it can be reformed to the form it was intended to be. As for staying in or getting out I prefer to stay. As the saying goes “keep your friends close and your enemies closer”.
