“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” St. Matthew 6:33. “We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights: that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” The Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776. I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people: whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my Country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey its laws; to respect its Flag; and to defend it against all enemies. “Menaced by dictators abroad and by collectivist trends at home, we must seek revival of our strength in its spiritual foundations which are the bedrock of our republic. Democracy is the outgrowth of the religious conviction of the sacredness of every human life. On the religious side, its highest embodiment is the Bible; on the political, the Constitution. As has been said so well, ‘The Constitution is the civil book of Americans’. Next to the Bible, the best book on the Constitution should be in every home, school, library and parish hall.” Herbert C. Hoover, Alfred E. Smith, James M. Cox, John W. Davis, Alfred M. Landon, Mrs. William H. Taft, Mrs. Calvin Coolidge, Mrs. Benjamin Harrison, Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt, Mrs. Thomas J. Preston, Jr. (Mrs. Grover Cleveland.) PREFACE “For by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.” —REVELATIONS 18:23 In 1775 North Carolina declared its independence from Great Britain. Of the colonies under the despotic heel of a tyrant three thousand miles away, North Carolina was the first to throw down the gauntlet of freedom. On May 31st a committee representing the militia companies of Mecklenburg County passed a series of resolutions declaring that the “royal commissions” in the several colonies were null and void, that the Constitution of each colony was suspended, and that the legislative and executive powers of each colony were vested in its provincial Congress subject to the direction of the Continental Congress. The Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence (May 20, 1775 by act of the North Carolina legislature) electrified free men throughout the colonies and supplied the spark that kindled a fundamental element in Americanism. One hundred and sixty-six years later the General Assembly of the sovereign State of North Carolina was to pass another resolution. On March 13, 1941, with the endorsement of Governor J. M. Broughton, the legislature of this proud old state adopted the so-called “Humber” resolution, calling for world government! This retreat to tyranny was written and sponsored by one Robert Lee Humber of Greenville. “There exists an international community,” declared the lawmakers of North Carolina. This international community encompasses the entire world. “All human beings,” they continued, “are citizens of this world community, which requires laws and not treaties for its government.” And, so declared the Legislature, “The Treaty of Peace must be written in terms of the Constitution of the Federation of the World”! What had happened to North Carolina in one hundred and sixty-six years? What had become of that sublime sense of freedom and independence that had written and adopted the Mecklenburg resolutions? Whence had fled the courage of the men of May 20, 1861 who voted to secede from the Union it had helped form rather than surrender the sovereignty and independence it had fought for and died for? Where now the uncompromising spirit of North Carolina’s Vances who fought the Union on the one hand and Jeff Davis on the other to secure the right to sovereignty and independence? Where, where, indeed! Quietly, unobtrusively, and without the benefit of disturbing publicity, the California State Legislature in 1949 adopted a resolution more baffling and shocking than the Humber resolution of North Carolina. Unanimous in the Assembly, and with but eight dissenting votes in the Senate, the resolution passed. Its sponsors spoke of “peace”, and every member of the Legislature was enthusiastically in favor of “peace”. No one questioned; few read the proposal. Eight senators read, understood, and, true to their oaths of office, voted “no”. The resolution memorialized Congress, under authority of Article V of the Constitution of the United States to call a Constitutional Convention for the purpose of amending the United States Constitution to expedite and insure United States participation in a World Federal Government! The “One World Resolution” immediately became known as the “California Plan”, and the advocates of “World Government” were enabled to move from state to state influencing other legislatures to adopt the “plan”. The prestige of California was impressive, and well meaning, but uninformed legislators were persuaded to sponsor the resolution in their own bodies. Connecticut, Florida, Maine, New Jersey, and, of course, North Carolina, followed the precedent set by California. Several California senators attempted to rescind the 1949 resolution in that same session of the legislature, but they were able to secure but one vote for passage in the senate committee that considered the proposal. Their efforts, however, served to publicize the issue, and patriotic organizations were aroused to indignant action. Foremost in the California struggle to rescind were the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Daughters of the American Revolution, and many women’s civic and patriotic organizations. The few embattled senators who failed to rescind the resolution in the 1949 session made a further attempt at a special session called later that year by the Governor. While this effort also failed, the rescinding resolution received two committee votes, which was at least encouraging. On March 6, 1950 Senate Joint Resolution No. 1 was introduced in the California Senate. The resolution was entitled: “Relative to withdrawing the application to Congress made by Assembly Joint Resolution No. 26 of the 1949 Regular Session, to propose a constitutional amendment for American participation in a World Federal Government,” and reads as follows: “WHEREAS, Assembly Joint Resolution No. 26 was passed at the 1949 Regular Session of the Legislature of the State of California; and “WHEREAS, That Assembly Joint Resolution urged an amendment to the Constitution of the United States permitting this Country’s participation in a World Federal Government; and “WHEREAS, It has come to the attention of certain members of the Legislature that not all the pertinent facts relating to that subject were available and presented when this resolution was passed; and “WHEREAS, Said resolution was not a mere memorialization of the Congress but an application by the Legislature of this State, pursuant to Article V of the Constitution of the United States that the Congress of the United States call a convention for the sole purpose of proposing an amendment to the United States Constitution to expedite and insure the participation of the United States in a World Federal Government; and “WHEREAS, If similar application to the Congress is made by the legislatures of two-thirds of the states, the Congress shall have no choice but to call a convention for for such purpose; and “WHEREAS, Said resolution, if acted upon and fulfilled by the Government of the United States, would entail the surrender of our national sovereignty, nullify our Constitution, bring into being a form of law whereby American citizens would be tried by citizens of other countries and imprisoned in foreign jails; and “WHEREAS, In order to provide financial support for this world government it would be necessary to give such government the power of taxation or to require contributions from member nations, and in either event the principal source of funds required for the support of suchgovernment would of necessity be the United States, with a resulting heavy burden on the American Taxpayer and lowering the American standard of living; and “WHEREAS, The establishment of such World Federal Government would require the creation of a world army to maintain peace, and such army would be composed in a large part of soldiers from other nations, and would be subject to the control of a world legislature, with the result that the American people would be in danger of losing their liberties, their free institutions, and their freedom of action; and “WHEREAS, The creation of such a world army would result in the abolition of the independent military establishment of the United States and the surrender of the Panama Canal, with consequent imminent peril to our national safety; NOW, THEREFORE BE IT “RESOLVED BY THE SENATE AND THE ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA, JOINTLY, That the proposal in said Assembly Joint Resolution No. 26 be withdrawn; and be it further “RESOLVED, That the Secretary of the Senate is hereby requested to transmit copies of this resolution to the Senate and House of Representatives of the Congress, to the Members of the Senate and House of Representatives from this State, and to the presiding officer of each of the legislatures of the several states.” The struggle that ensued for the passage of the rescinding resolution was long and difficult. Members of an organization known as UNITED WORLD FEDERALISTS, INC. made their first appearance in the corridors of the State Capitol. One Alan Cranston, later to become President of UNITED WORLD FEDERALISTS, INC., was active throughout, attempting to hold the members of the legislature in line. At crucial moments, however, the Capitol was filled with patriots from every part of the State, and determined, grim-faced women worked incessantly with members, who, either from a sense of stubbornness or fear of looking foolish, refused to retreat from their former position and admit that they had been deceived. After defeat on the floor of the Senate and a motion to reconsider, the rescinding resolution passed the Senate without a vote to spare. The fight continued in the Assembly and finally was won with only two votes over the required majority. California had redeemed itself and the “world government” resolution’s march to two-thirds of the states was suddenly halted. “The flag was still there.” The long debate with its diversionary arguments passed into history, but the UNITED WORLD FEDERALISTS, INC. believed that it had only lost a battle, and that the war was yet to be won, and that they would win it. Mr. Robert Lee Humber, who humbled North Carolina, is a Rhodes Scholar. He lived sixteen years in Europe, and returned to the United States when the Nazis conquered France. He was a Vice-President of UNITED WORLD FEDERALISTS, INC. Cecil Rhodes established the scholarships that bear his name for the purpose of bringing the United States back into the British Empire through the education of Americans in England. It may appear to be a far cry from North Carolina and the State Capitols of the United States to the little town of Benicia, California, but in its picturesque peacefulness it is typical of thousands of small communities scattered throughout the country. What happens in the Benicias of America ultimately determines the freedom of men and women everywhere. Benicia, except for its colorful history, differs but little from its sister cities throughout the United States. Once the capitol of California, it stands on the north bank of Carquinez Straits, in Solano County. Its past is closely woven with the history of the men and women of California, who, with faith in God, carried the Cross and Christian civilization into the West. The County in which Benicia nestles derived its name from the noted Franciscan missionary, Father Francisco Solano, whose name was given in baptism to an Indian Chief when the latter embraced Christianity. Benicia was named after General Vallejo’s wife, Francisca Benicia. Two great military installations in Solano have contributed to the defense of the United States and the freedom of its people for over a hundred years—the shipyard at Mare Island and the Arsenal at Benicia. The bay, the inlets, the coves, the low-lying hills; the tranquility of lapping waters; the yellow gold of strong sunlight, the amethyst of sunset; yes, and even the fogs from the rivers and the bay that hide the twinkling myriad of stars—this is the peace and beauty of Benicia. More important than its loveliness, more deeply ingrained by the gift of God than the serenity of its moon-lit, diamond-encrusted nights, is the glory of the crimson and white and the star-studded field of blue that keeps it free. It was Niccolo Machiavelli who wrote that force alone rarely suffices for the attainment of political objectives, whereas cunning alone oftimes succeeds. It would appear that the advocates of world domination and totalitarianism are masters of Machiavellian philosophy, and are particularly adept in the art of cunning. The UNITED WORLD FEDERALISTS had stealthily attempted to pass its “world government” resolutions through the several legislatures and failed. These great “advocates” of “democracy” might have admitted that the people had spoken, dissolved their movement and abided by the will of the majority, but it is not in their nature to practice the alleged virtues of their own propaganda. Like the Fabian socialists of England, they have time. What you cannot push over with brute strength you may undermine so that it falls of its own weight. Where may political undermining be better rewarded than in the schools? In a small city, such as Benicia, the citizens are hospitable, warm-hearted, and friendly. The teachers of its public schools come from various educational institutions, and, in addition to being allegedly qualified to teach, are assumed to be loyal Americans, steeped in the traditions of our basic freedoms and independence. And for the greater part, American teachers fulfill most of these qualifications. But in the Benicias of the United States there has been appearing a new sort of teacher. This modern educator is a product of “progressive” education, and appears to suffer from a great inner sense of inferiority, and, in addition to indoctrination courses for the unsuspecting student, engages in assorted extra-curricular activities, such as organizing inter-racial groups and chapters of the UNITED WORLD FEDERALISTS. Some of these teachers manifest an almost rabid repugnance for such things as committees for Americanism, and anti-communistic groups. They are often heard to refer to such organizations as “fascist”, “red-baiters”, and even “anti-Semitic”. Most of them appear to be more concerned with the “integration” of the races and aptitudes of collective living than they are with the old fashioned ideas of reading, writing and arithmetic. Benicia had such a teacher. She became very active in the community life of the town. She became president of the EMPLOYED WOMEN, and a member of the INTERRACIAL organization, thereby proving that she was not any better than anyone else. She was a great advocate of equality, fraternity and democracy. There were those in Benicia, by the grace of God, who did not quite agree with all of the “progressive” views of the teacher’s INTERRACIALS, and though these good citizens were greatly in the majority, they did not fall within the democratic philosohpy as interpreted by Benicia’s new “progressive” teacher. In June of 1949 the teacher appeared before the Benicia Chamber of Commerce, requesting funds to finance a trip of a group of students from the Benicia High School to Washington, D. C. in order that they might take part in the WORLD FEDERALIST PEACE MOVEMENT. The members of the Benicia Chamber of Commerce, like most law-abiding citizens, are enthusiastic about peace, and they were willing to stake thirty dollars on the efforts of the High School group to secure a little of it. That is, they were —until some one started asking questions. When some of the answers started coming in, the members (proving they were better qualified to legislate than those who acted for them in Sacramento) adopted a resolution, which reads as follows: “RESOLVED: That the Board of Directors of the Benicia Chamber of Commerce declares itself unalterably opposed to the organization known as ‘World Federalists’ and hereby requests the Board of Trustees of the Benicia Unified School District to take whatever action is necessary to eliminate the teaching or participation in, by either the faculty or students, in any organizations which have doubtful loyalty to our American precepts.” In spite of the protest of the members of the Benicia Chamber of Commerce (merely a group of tax-payers) a chapter of the UNITED WORLD FEDERALISTS was launched officially at the Benicia High School, permission having been obtained to make the chapter a regular school organization. Thirty students enrolled. Lectures, films, and “one-world” propaganda followed. Panel discussions on world government, conferences on UNESCO at Stanford University, and appearances before the local Kiwanis Club, quickly “internationalized” Benicia interests. A scheduled panel discussion before the Benicia’s Women’s Club was cancelled after the passage of a resolution by the District FEDERATION OF WOMEN’S CLUBS in San Francisco opposing the UNITED WORLD FEDERALIST movement. The PARENT-TEACHER ASSOCIATION held out a welcome sign for the world-government-teacher, but denied patriotic citizens the right to appear and speak against her contention that the United States should surrender its independence. The pseudo-intellectuals who mentally bow and scrape before the bizarre and the absurd, welcomed the “new” and “progressive” views of the teacher of their children, and conjured up visions of a well organized universe with everything in its place, law and order everywhere and the dawn of eternal peace. They could have found such a paradise a few miles away on San Francisco Bay—either at San Quentin or Alcatraz—but it is doubtful that any of them would have exchanged their disordered, unruly and war-torn existence for the peace and quiet of either of those places. Some of Benicia’s citizens could not sit idly by and watch the Pied Piper from the Ivory Towers of John Dewey lead the children of Benicia into the dark caverns from which there is no return. Where to go? What to do? Who to see? How stem the incomprehensible flood that seemed sweeping over Benicia? And what was more important in the beginning was the nagging suggestion that one might be out of step with the march of progress; that there might be new standards and values at large in the world that one did not quite understand or fully appreciate. After all, what really is wrong with world government? Did not the founding fathers of our great country conceive a union of sovereign states eternally bound together by a Federal government? If thirteen separate states might accomplish such a miracle, why not the nations of the world? What are the answers to these questions? Where, in common sense, is the measuring rod of judgment; where, by the delicate scales of history, was the balance of world experience? Where is the road marked by the approval of God; in what direction, by what sign, and to what end? “The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto Him to shew unto His servants things which must shortly come to pass; and He sent and signified it by His angel unto His servant John: Who bare record of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein; for the time is at hand. (Revelations 1: 1-3. ) It is told of the early people that they sought to build a great city and a tower that would reach to heaven, lest they be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And they spoke but one language and desired but one world. “And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go own, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth; and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel.” “They shall deceive the very elect... and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.” The time-honored values remain constant; the measuring-roa of judgment eternal. The lessons of history are ever present for those who seek, who learn and understand. The road is straight ahead, narrow and steep and difficult of passage, well marked by the hand of God, and it alone leads to peace. Treason is an ugly word and its definition in the Constitution of the United States it clear and unmistakable. Disloyalty is not defined in the Constitution; its attributes are interwoven in the melancholy histories of the world’s Benedict Arnolds. To give aid and comfort to the enemies of one’s country in time of war is an act that not only arouses loathing in the heart of the betrayed, but also stirs emotions of contempt in the heart of the enemy. It is an act that is discernible; the results of which may be disaster. What then of the more subtle acts of betrayal? The surrender of hard earned independence and sovereignty—without a struggle? Surrender to whom? To what? And for what reason? To avoid war and the inevitable blast of an atom bomb! This is the stock answer! If the British had possessed the atom bomb when the colonists determined to throw off the oppressive yoke of George III, Patrick Henry’s voice might have been lost in the clamor for continued union. The instruments of death launched against Washington’s ragged armies were just as deadly in their day as the atom bomb is today. A well placed slug from a flint-lock killed as surely and as completely as an atomic blast will kill today. True, an atom bomb properly placed will kill more men with one blast than a flint-lock, but it is equally true that the cannon of the Red Coats also might simultaneously kill more men than the flint-lock. The words of Patrick Henry seem directed at today’s generation. “It is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope,” he declared March 28, 1755. “We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that syren, till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvat i o n ? . . . I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided; and that is the lamp of experience... What is it that gentlemen wish? ...
