Exposing the United Nations
July 30, 2001 The United Nations Exposed, the latest book
from UN expert William F. Jasper, uncovers those behind the drive
for world government under an empowered United Nations.
Below the surface of public attention, internationalists have been working for decades to build the United Nations into an all-powerful world government. In this carefully documented study, William F. Jasper shows that, with the United Nations, the American people are being offered what amounts to poison disguised as candy.

In 1992, veteran reporter and UN expert William F. Jasper unmasked the real intentions of the United Nations with his authoritative volume on the world body, Global Tyranny Step by Step. Since then, the program for world domination through the UN has continued apace, making an update to that now classic treatise imperative. With his new book, The United Nations Exposed, Jasper has done just that. The new work, though, is far more than just an update of the earlier book. Taking a different approach than that used in Global Tyranny, Jasper has provided new and shocking insights into how a transnational elite is using the United Nations as a mechanism to bring into being a despotic "new world order."
Since the publication of Jaspers earlier book, and especially over the past three years, the UN has been circulating several bold proposals to consolidate additional powers and create what can only be called a working world government. Some of these proposals include: the 1998 International Criminal Court treaty to be able to bring any person in the world to trial; reinvigorated pressure for global taxing power; and a 1999 proposal to outlaw private firearms ownership globally.
The final thrust is perhaps the most frightening, given the history of the United Nations with personal disarmament. Commenting on the UNs record in Rwanda, Jasper notes that "Lt.-Gen. Romeo Dallaire, the former commander of Canadas UN peace-keeping mission to Rwanda in 1994, revealed that he had sent a fax to Annans office warning that Rwandan security officials had been ordered to register the (predominantly Christian) Tutsis as an obvious prelude to mass liquidation. Annans office ordered Dallaire to assist in the recovery of all weapons distributed to or illegally acquired by civilians, which, in effect, meant disarming the intended victims!" The result of the disarmament is another dismal chapter in history. The Rwandan government waged a massive genocidal campaign against the Tutsis while the UN looked on and washed its hands of responsibility in the matter. Now the UN wants to supervise personal disarmament on a global scale a truly chilling development.
New Push for Empowerment
Years ago, UN proposals to empower itself got little more than smirks from most Americans. But the United Nations is currently lobbying in dynamic new ways to obtain these additional powers. The rise in influence of the Non-Governmental Organization (NGOs) at the UN, as well as a new UN partnership with business organizations, has led to greater domestic and international pressure for adoption of agreements to strengthen the UN. And Americans have only seen the opening salvos of these new arrangements.
In one sense, Global Tyranny could be said to be more valuable today than when it was published in 1992. Many of the events forecast by Jasper then are now international agreements in the process of ratification today. In that book, Jasper writes of UN threats to our Second Amendment and takes notice of the dangers posed by a strengthened world court mechanism and multiplying environmental agreements. "The deluge of treaties now in various stages of readiness and preparation regarding the environment, childrens rights, peace and disarmament, and a host of other issues has the capability of utterly destroying our Republic if they are approved," he wrote.
Jasper may appear to be some sort of a prophet for his projections in Global Tyranny. But with The United Nations Exposed, Jasper proves that he is no prophet. Why? Because in his new book he lets out the secrets of his prophecy, revealing the agendas, programs, and organizing principles behind the UN and its new proposals. With The United Nations Exposed, every reader can become a prophet.
Specifically, Jasper lays out for the reader the organizational pattern for United Nations empowerment, a pattern that the perceptive reader will easily be able to recognize wherever and whenever it pops up. Despite the substantial new information and additional research provided in The United Nations Exposed, this is perhaps the greatest improvement over Global Tyranny. Although Jasper did cover some of this material in his earlier book he did, for instance, cover the role of NGOs at the 1992 summit in Rio de Janeiro (which he attended on behalf of THE NEW AMERICAN) the methods and tactics of UN organizing are laid out in far more detail and with several additional examples in The United Nations Exposed.
Strategy for Victory
The general pattern the UN employs to build its powers is a public relations pincer strategy involving pressure from street demonstrators "below" and diplomats from "above." Pressure from below is created by UN-friendly NGOs who "clamor for world governance, and their orchestrated clamor is portrayed as the collective voice of the peoples of the world expressing a global consensus." Meanwhile, pressure from above is created by "political and corporate leaders [who] then respond to the will of civil society." These organized lobbying efforts by the UN are increasingly effective. "Politicians who might normally do battle are completely outgunned and overwhelmed; there is no way they can match, by themselves, the intellectual firepower of the assembled think tanks and universities that have been preparing their positions for months or even years. And when their congressional offices are besieged with an orchestrated campaign of telephone calls, e-mails, faxes, and letters; while CNN, C-Span, and the other networks are all spewing forth the same story even the stalwart begin to crumble before such an onslaught."
Jasper notes that the UNs alliance with foundation-funded NGOs means that they now have "incredible resources at their disposal for [assaulting American sovereignty], including the support of now more than 1,000 NGOs lobbying for the UN agenda. We cannot expect to obtain the resources to defend against all of those attacks. Moreover, such a purely defensive strategy is doomed to defeat. The only sensible strategy is to put the globalists gains up for grabs by going after the foundation for their assaults the United Nations itself."
This last statement by Jasper is one example of why The United Nations Exposed provides genuine leadership for patriotic Americans interested in maintaining their liberties and independence. Ancient Chinese military strategist Sun Tzu once wrote that "if you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle." Jaspers new volume helps Americans realize both the nature of the enemy they face and the resources available to patriots. He notes that the danger has never been that "UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan or one of his predecessors or successors would impose a UN dictatorship upon a strong and resistant United States. That is not going to happen." "The danger is very real," Jasper nevertheless concludes, because this danger "emanates not so much from Kofi Annan, the UN itself, or any foreign, external source as it does from those within our own government who seek to impose a new world order upon us."
Who are these people who seek to impose a global tyranny? In the prologue to his new effort, Jasper writes that "this cabal of one-world Insiders has gradually gained control of the levers of power in the federal government, the Democratic and Republican Parties, and many major corporations, universities, think tanks, and tax-exempt foundations. Operating through respectable-appearing front groups principally the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the Trilateral Commission (TC), the Bilderberg Group (BG), and the Committee for Economic Development (CED) these one-worlders have hijacked our country. While systematically destroying our constitutional republic and gradually converting it into a socialist dictatorship, they also have been busily fomenting wars and revolutions, toppling free governments that were friendly to America, and repeatedly aiding ruthless Communist dictators and Third World thugs who are Americas enemies. The blood of millions of victims is on their hands."
That American politicians and other leaders would work toward the subversion of Americas national sovereignty and Bill of Rights would shock many patriots, and some might even dismiss such an allegation. But Jasper supports his statements with a deluge of unassailable facts. Yet despite the enormous threat posed by UN empowerment, Jasper persuasively refutes pessimism. "Both of these attitudes blind, senseless optimism and hopeless defeatism should be equally repugnant to free peoples." As to defeatism, Americans can take heart in the fact that the UN must still use subterfuge to get its agenda adopted. "If the fight were already over, as the defeatists claim, our enemies would not be going to such lengths to deceive; they would be flying their colors openly. But they cannot promote their agenda openly."
Jasper notes that Americas situation is at least as hopeful as that of the Founding Fathers, who faced a "world order" in their day that was at least as potent as the global order Americans face today. "In the summer of 1775, these courageous souls faced a situation not dissimilar to our own." The sun did not set on the British Empire, and its military and naval might were unequaled in the world. Jasper notes that many counseled in 1775 that "it would be futile and foolish to dare to challenge the British military might." Yet those American patriots prevailed against the world order of their day.
Americans today can defeat the UN would-be world order without a clash of arms, and Jasper recommends an educational approach. "Building sufficient understanding in time will require organization under extremely tough, responsible, and knowledgeable leadership," Jasper notes. He points out that only the John Birch Society has such a track record, especially with respect to the United Nations. "For more than four decades, members of The John Birch Society have been educating their fellow citizens concerning the dangers of the United Nations. Their work has been largely responsible for the disfavor that befell the UN for so many years."
