United Nations: Conception and Objectives

Published on 29th September 2020

This year marks the United Nation’s Palladium jubilee (75th anniversary) having been founded after the Second World War (WW II). Its forerunner, the League of Nations, headquartered at the time in Geneva, Switzerland was formed in 1920 after the First World War (WW I) to ‘provide a forum for resolving international disputes.’ The League’s covenant was drafted by three people: US’s Woodrow Wilson, France’s Georges Clemenceau and United Kingdom’s David Lloyd George. The idea of forming the League of Nations emanated from members of the Royal Institute for International Affairs (RIIA) which was itself formed in 1919. The League’s modus operandi and agenda were not significantly different from that of the United Nations (UN).

The UN Charter was signed on 26 June 1945 in San Francisco and came into force on 24 October 1945. Ten years later on 26 June, another gigantic fraud known as the “Freedom Charter” – which bore the hallmarks of the UN Charter - was hatched in South Africa by white Communist Party members. The UN Charter was rushed through the US Senate without printed copies to guide that country’s Senators. The Freedom Charter was also rushed through despite many members not having seen it including ANC President Albert Luthuli and his Deputy Dr Wilson Conco. Guess what? Most of those who came up with the idea of the UN Charter were members of the Communist Party of America. They all belonged to the influential US’s Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) which was formed by members of RIIA in 1921. RIIA was associated with Cecil John Rhodes although he was already dead when RIIA was formed. All post-apartheid South African Presidents including Kgalema Motlanthe and the incumbent have addressed the CFR.

Official history books claim representatives from different countries of the world founded the UN and this lie is taught to students in schools, colleges and universities. Quite the contrary, the UN was founded by individuals. Most of them were members of the Communist Party of America and CFR. They formulated UN policies which did not confer power to the General Assembly but to the Security Council where the Veto is.

In his A Second Look at the United Nations presentation, author Des Griffin says the constitution of the WHO defines health thus:  Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Governments have a responsibility for the health of their peoples which can be fulfilled only by the provision of adequate health and social measures. That provision derived from Articles 55 and 56 of the UN Charter. Article 56 states, “All Members pledge themselves to take joint and separate action in cooperation with the Organisation for the achievement of the purpose set forth in Article 55.”

Those achievements in Article 55 are:

  1. Higher standards of living, full employment, and conditions of economic and social progress and development.
  2. Solutions of international economic, social, health, and related problems; and international cultural and educational cooperation; and
  3. Universal respect for and observance of, human rights and fundamental freedoms for all without distinction as to race, sex, language, or religion.

The WHO has deviated from its original mandate. It is prescriptive and run by a committee known as the Global Preparedness Management Board. These are the people who are running our lives. According to WHO, "The mandate of the GPMB is to apprise key policymakers and the world of system-wide progress towards increased preparedness and response capacity for disease outbreaks and other emergencies with health consequences. It publishes an annual overview of the state of the world’s preparedness, monitoring progress, calling for leaders to take urgent action. Read the 2020 report, A World In Disorder."

Ramaphosa speaks of establishing a new global order. It means he is privy to the mission of the United Nations which is to establish a totalitarian one world government that they refer to as the "new world order." We have not achieved Pan African unity yet. But the ANC is preoccupied with a global order. Ramaphosa and the ANC should explain to the people of South Africa if the UN Charter supersedes the constitution of South Africa.

In the eyes of many Africans the UN cannot cover itself in glory for having facilitated the toppling of Patrice Lumumba in late 1960 and his assassination on 17 January 1961even if ANC leaders have ignored the shameful role the UN played in the toppling and ultimate assassination of Lumumba. The UN also facilitated the toppling and assassination of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. The UN did the same in Iraq by toppling and executing Saddam Hussein and in Yugoslavia by toppling Slobodan Milosevic.

Since none of the African countries was represented or had an input in the founding of the UN, instead of having been assimilated into the UN’s sinister agenda, African countries should have demanded the redrafting of the UN Charter from scratch after many African states became independent. After many African countries had gained independence they should have all withdrawn from the UN and demanded that its charter be drafted from scratch rather than begging to be included in the Security Council.

Would that inclusion in the UNSC go with a Veto or would it be just as worthless as the General Assembly? Veto powers were given to powerful countries. Africa is powerless because of stooges and spineless leaders. The US was given Veto power to lure it to join the UN and veto any policies that violated its constitution. The UN charter does not supersede the US constitution. However, in South Africa not only does the UN Charter supersede the South African constitution but also the WHO's International Health Regulations document published in 2005. African countries, working together, can still insist that the UN overhaul its policies.
