Top-Down Treason

"The less government we have the better - the fewer laws and the less confided power.
The antidote to this abuse of formal government is the influence
of private character, the growth of the individual."

Ralph Waldo Emerson

In Stage III progressive controlled disarmament and continuously developing principles and procedures of international law would proceed to a point where no state would have the military power to challenge the progressively strengthened U.N. Peace Force ....

-- Freedom From War September 1961

When they first hear about the disarmament program our nation has been implementing for over 30 years, many Americans are incredulous that officials in the highest offices of our government would commit such a blatant act of treason. Yet, such a plan exists and is unfolding at an alarming pace. It calls for the United States to disarm itself and simultaneously build the military capability of the United Nations.

It all began in September 1961, when President Kennedy formally presented the official U.S. disarmament program described in State Department Publication 7277. Entitled Freedom From War: The United States Program for General and Complete Disarmament in a Peaceful World, the program calls for the nations of the world -- including the U.S. -- to disarm, turn over their military might to the UN, and make the world body an unchallengeable military power.

Disarmament enthusiasts have long called upon world leaders to scrap all weapons and eliminate the potential for war. But this program is not about the elimination of weapons, but about placing all military power in the hands of one global power.

For several decades, pro-UN propaganda has held that furnishing the world body with enough power to "enforce peace" would benefit mankind and forestall the possibility of future wars. But there are some crucial questions that few consider: If the UN should become all-powerful, who would be left to prevent it from establishing its own brand of tyranny? If the UN were powerful enough to enforce peace, would it not also be powerful enough to enforce the will of its leaders on all mankind?

America's national sovereignty is directly threatened by this program, because, in effect, it cedes U.S, independence to the world body -- in order, as most people have been led to believe, to prevent war. But the proper steps the U.S. should take to avoid war are to: 1) be strong enough to discourage attack; 2) stay out of the affairs of other nations; and 3) keep out of entangling alliances.

The Kennedy Plan

On September 25, 1961, President Kennedy addressed the UN General Assembly, declaring: "The program to be presented to this Assembly for general and complete disarmament under effective international control ... would achieve, under the eyes of an international disarmament organization, a steady reduction in force, both nuclear and conventional, until it has abolished all weapons except those needed for internal order and a new United Nations Peace Force."

As unbelievable as it may seem, our national leaders have been implementing this very same treasonous disarmament program for the past three decades. The Nuclear Test Ban Treaty is part of it; the treaty banning America's use of outer space for defense is part of it; the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty is also part of it.

Following JFK's address at the UN, this program was rewritten in greater detail. Retitled Blueprint for the Peace Race: Outline of Basic Provisions of a Treaty on General and Complete Disarmament in a Peaceful World, it was presented by President Kennedy to an 18-nation disarmament conference in Geneva, Switzerland on April 18, 1962. The Blueprint didn't cancel any portion of its predecessor document. As stated in its foreword, it merely "elaborates and extends the proposals of September 25, 1961."

When questioned about the Blueprint, Arms Control and Disarmament Agency General Council A. Richard Richstein confirmed in a May 11, 1982 letter that "the United States has never formally withdrawn this proposal."

When questioned by this author in late 1993 about the continuation of this disarmament program, Dr. William Nary, chief historian for the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, confirmed: "The program has not been withdrawn and some of its steps have been implemented."

Rendering Nations Powerless

The Freedom From War program lists four overall disarmament "objectives," the first of which reads:

The disbanding of all national armed forces and the prohibition of their reestablishment in any form whatsoever other than those required to preserve internal order and for contributions to a United Nations Peace Force.

This means no more U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine Corps controlled by this nation for the purpose of defending our vital interests. All of our fighting men would be conscripted into a global "Peace Force" -- save for those who would be assigned to a national police force designed to maintain internal order.

The second objective of this incredible program is:

The elimination from national arsenals of all armaments, including weapons of mass destruction and the means for their delivery, other than those required for a United Nations Peace Force and for maintaining internal order.

Not only would nations be required to disband their defense forces, but they would also be forced to divest themselves of all armaments. The UN will take no chances that weapons -- especially those of "mass destruction" -- might fall into the hands of UN opponents.

Toward the end of this document, its text states: "The manufacture of armaments would be prohibited except for those agreed types and quantities to be used by the U.N. Peace Force and those required to maintain internal order." This means disarmament of civilians as well -- under international control. The United Nations wants no one to have the capability to defend his nation, himself, or his family from its designs.

The third objective addresses the need for compliance with UN-imposed obligations. It calls for:

The establishment and effective operation of an International Disarmament Organization within the framework of the United Nations to ensure compliance at all times with all disarmament obligations.

The UN doesn't intend to take any chances. Therefore, this program calls for an "international" snooping agency empowered to "ensure compliance" with each of the above "obligations."

Several existing UN creations have the potential of becoming exactly what this portion of the overall plan calls for -- including the International Atomic Energy Agency, the UN Disarmament Commission, and the peacekeeping arm of the Military Staff Committee.

Whatever this supranational agency is called, it would, of necessity, operate with powers that supersede the laws and prerogatives of any government -- including the government of this nation. It would assist the UN in the enforcement of the UN's "international law."

UN-Defined "Peace"

The final objective of the 1961 plan calls for:

The institution of effective means for the enforcement of international agreements, for the settlement of disputes, and for the maintenance of peace in accordance with the principles of the United Nations.

The peace being maintained would be in accord with the principles of the United Nations. As to what those principles might include, a quick look at Chapter VII of the UN Charter reveals that the "peace" organization retains for itself the power to determine what might constitute: 1) a threat to peace; 2) a breach of peace; or 3) an act of aggression.

Whenever the UN decrees that "peace" is not being adhered to, it could then turn to Article 42 of the UN Charter to "take such action by air, sea, or land forces as may be necessary" to restore its idea of peace. Such a "peace" could be very costly in lives.

The UN is not interested in the kind of peace normal individuals seek and desire. Its very Charter empowers it to enforce and maintain its unimpeded global rule with military action.

Moreover, the UN has called for the very powers the U.S. has proposed for it. In 1978, the UN General Assembly adopted a Final Document that called for reducing national armed forces to a level "necessary to maintain internal order and protect the personal security of citizens and in order that States shall support and provide agreed manpower for a United Nations peace force." That "peace force" would have sufficient clout to "effectively deter or suppress any threat or use of arms in violation of the purposes and principles of the United Nations."

As noted earlier, the disarmament plan described in Freedom From War, and repeated in Blueprint for the Peace Race, continues as the official policy of the U.S. government. It is the clear intention of our leaders to implement every portion of this treasonous plan.

Years ago, a Dallas-based editorialist referred to the three stages of this subversive plan and concluded, "One, two, three, and America's out!" This scheme must be exposed and our leaders must be stopped before it is fully implemented and U.S. sovereignty becomes a bitter memory.
