"I want to make one thing clear. This war against our constitution is not being fought way off in Madagascar or in Mandalay. It is being fought here—in our schools, our colleges, our churches, our women’s clubs. It is being fought with our money, channeled through the State Department. It is being fought twenty-four hours a day—while we remain asleep. How many of you Senators know what the UN is doing to change the teaching of the children in your own home town? The UN is at work there, every day and night, changing the teachers, changing the teaching materials, changing the very words and tones—changing all the essential ideas which we imagine our schools are teaching to our young folks. How in the name of Heaven are we to sit here, approve these programs, appropriate our own people’s money—for such outrageous “orientation” of our own children, and of the men and women who teach our children, in this Nation’s schools?"

Abolish the UN. Bring back "American" thinking. Screw the NWO.

    Last night Mr. Obama said "We are one people." This tendency for people or peoples to be together, united is a universal one. Thus the term "United Nations" just like "United States" is not chosen lightly. To infer that educational philosophy or curriculum stemming from any community (local, state or province, nation or world community) is inherently evil or bad shows a lack of depth on the part of Senator Jenner. A correct reading and understanding of the core beliefs of the American nation and its constitution should give no one fear of its possible subversion by others but on the contrary "the others" will be changed by it.

    Jenner is right on target and the sooner we rid ourselves of the UN, the better off we will be. It is now , and always has been a nest of socialists thugs . Perhaps we could send it to North Korea or some other commie country where the UN would be right at home.

    I have always wondered why anyone would think taking the advice of a congress of thugs and dictators would be a good idea. Why would any American need the advice of North Korea, for instance, on how to educate our children? On the other hand, North Korea seems to do a very thorough job of "educating" their children (we love you, Great Leader).

    This quote addresses an important real issue and I agree that the war against our Constitution is being fought in our homeland on many fronts,24 hours a day.I do not agree,though,that all Americans are "asleep". I think that there are many who are planning ways to uphold and preserve the sanctity our Constitution and Bill of Rights.These individuals are the Awakened Ones and they have Real Eyes and "Real Eyes-Realize-Real Lies."

    Hard to imagine what he saw is what we see. Seems as if he were speaking about today's schools. Socialism is the problem and of course the U.N. is all about socialism. Obama is owned by U.N. types (Mr. George Soros) he is nothing but a puppet. Lost with out a teleprompter. Worthless.

    Another time, another republican using fears and lies to advance himself and the band of losers we know as the GOP. They really sound like Hitler like the Tea Bagers today. I guess after 60 years it's safe to say "You Lie!' We should get them out of our bedrooms, our health care, and out wallets.

    Obviously Jenner was much more astute than the "toe the line" politicians that surrounded him and still abound today. We need to teach our kids American history and the reasons for the Constitution, which is exactly what is NOT happening in schools. Be sure to debrief your kids every day after they get home from the state funded indoctrination centers. Teach them morality...

    I have a liberal democrat friend that I have coffe with about twice a month, and he tells this story. He used to send donations to UNICEF until he did some research. He found that the guy who runs UNICEF makes 0ne million two hundred thiusand dollars a year with perks galore. He also found that 5% of the donations actually reach any children. Typical UN hubris. we need to get rid of this bunch of commies.

    Shire, are you really nuts or do you just sound that way.Are you comparing the Tea "Bagers" to Hitler. (I assume you meant Tea Baggers). It's always interesting when someone exposes that bunch of reds known as the UN, the lefty supporters come out of the woodwork, see above.

    I was certainly a product of this propaganda in school. I, too, was surprised to learn of the history of the UN -- every kid knows the UN is about world peace, right? ;-) Then after 40 years more of evidence to the contrary, I can see now that Senator Jenner is right on. And I am from NYC where we got the full 'burn' of govt indoctrination. America has been taken over from within -- all are now beholden to the funny money debt system foisted upon us by the banksters.

    I love all the theocratic socialists thumb's down. Is there a nickel's difference between the democrats and republicans that are killing freedom, liberty, personal rights, and prosperity by their lawless unconstitutional activities ? The answer, absolutely NOT !

    Jenner was absolutely right and far ahead of our time. Read AMERICAN BETRAYAL: the secret war against our nation's character by Diana West. It's the Rosetta Stone of modern American History.

    Jenner was and is absolutely correct. We are being taken over by the socialist dogma, eventually leading to their ultimate goal, Communism

    I have had acquaintances in the past that periodically worked in the U.N. trying to stop and reverse the ANTI ! ! !: Christian, family, freedom, liberty, individual rights, natural law, morals and virtue that is the demonic U.N. premise and foundation. As the central focal point, the U.N. has experimented in different places around the world how best to eradicate that of my extremely terse list hereinabove. The mindless / soulless socialism that has resulted from U.N. efforts is being played out with current antifa, black lives matter, financed violence, leftist intolerance and the absolute dumbing down of the masses in general. Senator Jenner's observation was extremely spot on. Many teachers were hired specifically from one university in the area to teach / indoctrinate at the high school I attended (latter, elementary school). That particular university was well known in the area for its communist activities and support of the U.N. - Coincidence – hmmm? AND, for the patron socialists such as Waffler, there is a HUGE ! ! ! difference between the Borg/oneness of slaves - and - individual sovereigns at liberty, in an order of natural law and with inalienable rights intact - 'united'.

    Good people gave "We the People" warnings about the UN's damaging influence in our country more than Half-a-Century ago.

    The declension of the nation's spiritual, moral and sociocultural character has been a concommitant of the
    ascension of the unholy influences about which Sen. Jenner
    so insightfully and cogently expressed himself, sixty five years ago.

    Virtue, alone, can countervail the rot.

    UN is subversive organisation operated by globalists with intent to subjugate nation-states to power of international authority -- UN IS ANTI-AMERICAN NWO TYRANNY!!

    Many downvotes appearing here indicates globalist paranoia attempting to thwart Our collective voice of Liberty, NWO is running scared upon installation and immediate success of Peoples' Champion Donald Trump.

    NWO = globalist tyranny
    READ THEIR OWN POLICY PAPERS, FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!!

    DOWNVOTING SCUM PREFER TYRANNY TO LIBERTY
