Foreign Election Monitors Driven by Leftist Political Agenda

October 3, 2004 By Tom DeWeese The U.S. State Department cracked open the door and now the invasion has begun. Foreign election monitors determined to oversee the U.S. election this November seem to be coming out of the woodwork. Even Jimmy Carter has gotten into the act. The bottom line is that the November election is being set up to humiliate the United States and place in doubt the legitimacy of our government. Those calling for the election monitors, like Democrat California Representative Barbara Lee, argue that the move is necessary in order to “make certain that every person’s voice is heard, every person’s vote is counted.” Eddie Bernice Johnson, the Texas Democrat who is the leader of the thirteen members of Congress who originally started the process by writing to UN. Secretary General Kofi Annan, says “The presence of monitors will assure Americans that America cares about their standing ...

The Dark Side of Globalism

September 16, 2004 By Tom DeWeese Presentation by Tom DeWeese to the Conservative Political Action Conference, January 22, 2004. There are many faces of globalism and it comes with many names, but in all cases the goal of globalism is to erase national borders, eliminate national sovereignty, reduce national identities and move toward global governance through the United Nations. The European Union is the prime example of the results of globalism, where once-proud nations have surrendered famous currencies like the deutsche mark, the franc and the lira. It’s where ancient cultures like Greece and Rome have erased their borders and buried their cultures to be led by a Union of Socialists with loyalty to nothing but the drive for more and more power. Yet it’s done in the name of equity, economic prosperity and ecological integrity. Globalism is sold to the unsuspecting public with words like free trade, open borders ...

Leader of Foreign Election Monitors Under Federal Investigation

August 30, 2004 Washington, D.C.—The U.S. State Department must immediately rescind its invitation to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) to monitor the U.S. election in November, the American Policy Center (APC) declared on Monday. APC, a grassroots activist organization located in suburban Washington, D.C., is warning Americans that the corruption and scandal surrounding OSCE Parliamentary Assembly President Alcee Hastings could spell disaster for this year’s presidential election. Hastings will be in charge of the OSCE’s foreign observation team, which is set to descend on polling stations this November. Hastings is one of the few federal judges ever to be impeached in the history of the U.S. Congress. After he was kicked off the federal bench, Hastings was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives as a Democrat from Florida, but his impeachment apparently taught him no lesson. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel had this to say about ...

Foreign Observers to Treat U.S. Like a Third World Delinquent

August 24, 2004 By Tom DeWeese Here’s the line in the sand. Americans can either sit down and do nothing about a planned invasion of foreign election observers or stand for their liberty by saying no. There is no middle ground. The Bush Administration, through Secretary of State Colin Powell, has given into pressure from thirteen far-left Democrat members of the House of Representatives and invited an international group to officially observe the November presidential election. Earlier this year, the thirteen Congressmen, led by Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX), wrote a letter to United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan to request UN observers for the 2004 presidential election. Johnson and her cohorts used the 2000 election troubles in Florida to declare that the United States couldn’t be trusted to conduct a fair election. “As legislators, we should guarantee the American people that our country will not experience another nightmare like ...

International Election Monitoring Group Headed By Impeached U.S. Judge; Group Warns of Election Catastrophe

August 25, 2004 Washington, D.C.- The American Policy Center charged on Wednesday that the U.S. State Department has invited scandal, fraud, and corruption to the American electoral process with its decision to bring in foreign election observers from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) to monitor the November presidential election. APC, a grassroots activist organization located in suburban Washington, D.C., is alerting Americans to the dangers of inviting an international body to monitor the upcoming presidential election. APC has discovered that the president of the OSCE election monitoring arm is none other than Florida Representative and disgraced federal judge, Alcee Hastings. He was elected President of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly on July 9 of this year. According to its website: "The OSCE Parliamentary Assembly's role [in the election monitoring process] is to deploy parliamentarians, primarily as short-term observers, and to provide political leadership to the OSCE monitoring ...

Yet the U.S. Government Continues UN Propaganda Programs

June 21, 2004 By Tom DeWeese Even as Americans express plunging support for the United Nations, U.S. government-run schools keep up the assault on American ideals and culture. United Nations Day is the fastest growing celebration in schools across the country. The United Nations has passed a resolution requiring all member states (that's us) to acknowledge October 24th as "UN Day," to make known "to the people of the world the aims and achievements of the United Nations and to gain their support for the work of the United Nations." According to The American Sentinel, UN observance has taken on absurd propagandizing about the "virtues" of the UN. For example in the Miami-Dade county public school system, students are strongly encouraged to experience "on line" propaganda tours of the UN Headquarters. They develop a "time line" listing of the events that led to the creation of the UN. The program ...

UN Popularity Sinking

June 17, 2004 By Tom DeWeese The United Nations continues to lose support in the United States. According to a Gallup Poll taken in February, UN popularity plunged around last year because of its refusal to use force against Iraq. As a result, in January of 2003, UN support fell from 50% to 37%. The newest poll shows that UN support has fallen another point during the year to 36%. Oil-for-Food scandals; a Human Rights Commission controlled by terrorist thugs; a criminal court that ignores the bad guys; and an agenda that demands global taxes, armies and mindless control of the earth’s land and wealth, all run by arrogant, non-elected bureaucrats: Yep, the American people have noticed ...

UN Law of the Sea Treaty Threatens US Sovereignty

June 2, 2004 By Tom DeWeese Those driving the battle to entangle the United States in the United Nations’ Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) are fighting back, determined to paint any opponent as a radical who is out of touch with the way the world really works. Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Richard Lugar (R-IN) and his allies are mad because they had hoped to sneak LOST through the Senate before anyone noticed. Opponents to the Treaty foiled that trick and blasted it to the nation. Americans rose up in protest and now the Law of the Sea Treaty is stuck. Lugar seemed genuinely shocked by the strength of the anti-treaty protests. Now it appears LOST is being held up without a scheduled vote by Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN). So Lugar and the pro-LOST forces have taken off the gloves, fighting back by increasing lobbying efforts, invoking the ...

Who’s Sen. Lugar Working For, Anyhow?

April 15, 2004 By Cheryl K. Chumley, associate editor APC News Wire American Policy Center It’s getting to the point it’s hard to discern whether Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Ind.) is working more for the benefit of the United States or the United Nations. That’s because in the past few weeks, Lugar has assumed the lead role in furthering two treaties that seem to place U.N. interests before those of America’s. The first, of course, was the Law of the Sea Treaty, a U.N. scheme that was left dormant for years until Lugar resurrected the measure in February and pushed it through his Foreign Relations Committee, at the bequest of the White House, environmentalists, the U.S. Navy and the oil industry. The immediate fate of this treaty, which seeks to place 70% of the world’s mass under control of three global authorities, now rests in the hands of the Senate Committee ...

Opposition Mounts to U.N. Sea Treaty

April 15, 2004 By Cheryl K. Chumley It seems the voice of grassroots is resonating at last in Congress, as three of a handful of senators hearing witness testimony on the U.N. Law of the Sea Treaty publicly validated the opinions of those who regard this document as harmful to American sovereignty. LOST, created in 1982 and amended in 1994, was never ratified in the Senate, mostly because true Reaganite conservatives in Congress at the time saw the devastation to our national sovereignty that would result. The treaty was dormant for years until February, when Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Ind.) caved to the pressures of supporters that included the White House, environmentalists, the U.S. Navy and oil industry executives, and pushed its passage through his Foreign Relations Committee unanimously. This treaty is dangerous to America’s interests and sovereignty on several fronts: it gives three U.N. bodies authority over 70 percent of ...

U.N. Plan for Internet Control Tiptoes Forward

April 4, 2004 By Cheryl K. Chumley, associate editor APC News Wire American Policy Center The phantom of government-controlled Internet has raised its menacing head again, this time on the global level. "Even the definition of what we mean by Internet governance is a subject of debate. But the world has a common interest in ensuring the security and dependability of this new medium," said Secretary-General Kofi Annan, at the opening of a March 25-26 United Nations Global Forum on Internet Governance. "The medium must be made accessible and responsive to the needs of all the world’s people." In UN-speak, that means America better ready itself, once again, to relinquish a bit more of its Founding Father free-market freedoms and accompanying hard-earned dollars to support the policies and expenses of a socialist system that demands equality for all at whatever cost. The idea of government control of the Internet is ...

Green’s Ignore Nature’s Laws – In Order To Save Nature

Sir Isaac Newton once observed that "to every action there is an equal and opposite reaction." Environmentalist's reaction to this revelation: Duh? The poor environmentalists, they are so confused. Apparently they also never learned that other great axiom "every action has consequence." Or my favorite: "liar,liar, pants on fire." You see the Chicken Little's are now adding to their arsenal of scare tactics with the warning that Global Warming is driving up temperatures and causing an increase in malaria, especially in South America. But according to a report by Donald Roberts, Larry Laughlin, Paul Hsheih and Llewellyn Legters of the Uniformed University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland (Medscape), Global Warming is not the reason for the malaria increase. The increase is directly attributed to the banning of the chemical DDT - one of the first victims of radical environmentalism way back in the 1970's. The report shows how ...

The Supreme Court Has Abandoned the Constitution

March 18, 2004 By Cheryl K. Chumley, associate editor APC News Wire The good news is that some in Congress are awakening to the very arrogant and destructive tendencies of a few of our Supreme Court justices to discard constitutional law in favor of foreign precedent and rule as basis for their decisions. The bad news is the action congressional members have taken is in vain. Gathering steam is a House Resolution from Rep. Tom Feeney (R-Fla.), the "Reaffirmation of American Independence Resolution," that seeks to sway Supreme Court justices from a disturbing trend to look overseas for guidance with domestic legal affairs. With roughly 60 co-sponsors, all Republican so far, the measure is due for introduction into the Judicial Committee for hearings before the end of March. Specifically, this resolution condemns Justice Sandra Day O’Connor’s stated belief that the Supreme Court "will rely increasingly … on international and foreign ...

The UN Moves To Snuff Out The Light Of The World

December 11, 2003 By Tom DeWeese Throughout the history of mankind, anytime the spark of liberty has been ignited one force or another has rushed to extinguish it. Today, in a world already suffocating under the weight of rules and regulations designed to control, tax and consume every outlet of human expression, the Internet stands as the only unregulated source of liberty in the known universe. True to form, as you read this, the United Nations is holding yet another international gathering to plot the takeover of the Internet. Meeting in Geneva, Switzerland, government diplomats and non-governmental organizations (NGO’s) have gathered at the World Information Summit to discuss the "role of the media," "acceptable boundaries to freedom of expression," and to create yet new ways to plunder free nations as they destroy their own economies with totalitarian dictates. Poor nations like Brazil, India, China and Saudi Arabia are also pushing ...

The UN Loses Its Luster in the US

September 25, 2003 By Tom DeWeese A recent poll by USA Today/CNN/Gallup revealed that more Americans have a negative view of the UN than at any time in its history. 60% of those polled said the UN is doing a poor job, compared to 37% who say it’s doing a good job. More than 55% said the Security Council’s refusal to explicitly back the war in Iraq made them view the UN less favorably. Significantly, the poll went on to reveal that most Americans want to cut congressional support for the UN. Fully 37% said UN funding should be decreased. While Americans are beginning to understand that the UN is not our friend, some in Canada still don’t get it. Dennis Mills, a member of the Canadian Parliament is floating the idea of offering space in downtown Toronto for a new UN headquarters. Mills argues that Toronto’s unique multicultural nature, ...

Sovereignty Movement Gaining Steam! 74 U.S. Congressmen Vote to Get U.S. Out of U.N.

August 15, 2003 By Peyton Knight On July 15th, a historic vote took place. Representative Ron Paul (R-TX) introduced an amendment to the Foreign Relations Authorization Act (H.R. 1950) that would have withdrawn U.S. membership in the United Nations. The amendment read: "Notwithstanding any other provision of this Act, none of the funds authorized to be appropriated by this Act, may be obligated or expended to pay any United States contribution to the United Nations or any affiliated agency of the United Nations." In other words, this was a vote on Rep. Paul’s American Sovereignty Restoration Act (H.R. 1146), and had this amendment passed, the U.S. would have been rid of the entangling mess that is the U.N. Our sovereignty would have been restored on this front. Unfortunately, the amendment was voted down 350-74, HOWEVER, 74 votes are the most that H.R. 1146 has ever received! That’s 12 more votes ...

International Criminal Court or International Mischief?

July 10, 2003 By Tom DeWeese The international community cried crocodile tears when the United States withdrew its support of the UN’s International Criminal Court (ICC). Supporters of the court laughed when the US expressed concern that our soldiers could be prosecuted for war crimes. Great Britain’s Prime Minister, Tony Blair, lobbied President Bush to reconsider US withdrawal. The US, however, at President Bush’s direction, withdrew from the 1998 Rome Statute that established the Court. The action was necessary because, as one of his last acts of office, former President Clinton had committed the US to the ICC, yet another totally unaccountable UN bureaucracy guaranteed to work against our interests. The Court came into being on April 11, 2002. Now the court is beginning its first session and guess who is the first to come under investigation for possible war crimes charges? Saddam Hussein? Osama Bin Ladin? The murderous Robert ...

US Sovereignty’s “Defenders” & “Enemies” Named; Threat to American Independence Cited

June 30, 2003 Washington, DC – Forty-six members of the House of Representatives were hailed today as "Defenders of Sovereignty" by the American Policy Center, a grassroots, activist think tank. Based on voting records during the last session of Congress, only 46 out of 435 members qualified. By a three-to-one margin, they were vastly outnumbered by those designated as "Enemies of Sovereignty." A total of 134 legislators failed to support any of the five legislative initiatives that sought to protect national sovereignty, the right of the United States to maintain its independent status among nations. "As Americans gather to celebrate Independence Day," said Tom DeWeese, president of the Center, "efforts to erode and attack our nation’s sovereignty continue. Barely one-tenth of the House in the 107th Congress voted to insure our status as a free and independent nation." "Those who supported these efforts to free the United States from the ...

Cultivating Iraqi Lackeys

May 23, 2003 By Peyton Knight The critics from the left have weighed in (and continue to weigh in). Their rants range from the absurd to the dishonest. "No blood for oil." "Drop Bush, not bombs." "Down with American imperialism." "Save Iraq from America." "America = tyrants." Such thought-provoking snippets of wisdom remain lost on educated America (save for a few Democratic presidential candidates). But now we’re beginning to hear an echo in Iraq. "Leave our country, we want peace." "No to America, no to Saddam, no to tyranny." "The Americans just want our oil." Indeed, the Iraqis have learned well from their coaches in America. Before I delve any further, allow me the following disclaimer: This is neither an endorsement, nor a condemnation of the war on Iraq. The war happened and now we must analyze the current situation. It is rather odd that a people who suffered for ...

The UN: United in Opposition to the US

April 28, 2003 By Tom DeWeese United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan continues to claim that only the UN can grant legitimacy to the United States’ successful war to topple Saddam Hussein. Rationally, that claim can be viewed as little more than a pathetic, baseless whine from those clinging to a dying dream of global power. It should now be clear to everyone that the UN is a house of cards. Simply stated, there never has been a better time to topple this clownish international institution. All that is required is for the US to extricate itself from the many UN treaties, protocols and conventions that have pilfered our national sovereignty on issues essential to our future. Only months ago that possibility seemed remote, even impossible. Many American leaders sounded the mantra that, yes, the UN is a despicable, even clownish institution that wastes money in an overbloated bureaucracy motivated ...
