American Minute with Bill Federer
OCT. 24 - United Nations began

The United Nations officially began OCTOBER 24, 1945.

With its name coined by President Franklin Roosevelt, the United Nations was created to prevent future wars.

Unfortunately, from the time its charter was drafted in the Garden Room of San Francisco's Fairmont Hotel, there have been over 100 million casualties in nearly 150 wars worldwide:

5 in Central Asia,
11 in South Asia,
20 in Southeast Asia,
13 in Eastern Europe,
23 in the Middle East,
25 in Latin & South America and
50 in Africa.

At the founding 1945 U.N. Charter Conference, the U.N. secretary-general was Alger Hiss.

Alger Hiss was later accused of being a Communist agent by former Soviet spy Whittaker Chambers. Hiss was convicted in a publicized 1948 trial.

After Whittaker Chambers died, President Ronald Reagan awarded him the Medal of Freedom, March 26, 1984, stating:

"At a critical moment in our Nation's history, Whittaker Chambers stood alone against the brooding terrors of our age...

He became the focus of a momentous controversy in American history that symbolized our century's epic struggle between freedom and totalitarianism, a controversy in which the solitary figure of Whittaker Chambers personified the mystery of human redemption in the face of evil and suffering."

The 185 member United Nations spends $20 billion annually, with the largest amount being contributed by United States.

Though 50 States comprise the United States of America, they are allowed only one combined vote, equivalent to the tiniest of nations.

After accusations of a U.N. Oil for Food Scandal and a U.N. Sex Scandal, the U.N. was pressured to release its first audit in 2005.

The fourth President of the U.N. General Assembly, elected in 1949, was Philippine General Carlos Romulo, who had served with General Douglas MacArthur in the Pacific.

General Carlos Romulo, the first Asian to win a Pulitzer Prize, wrote:

"Never forget Americans, that yours is a spiritual country.

Yes, I know you're a practical people.

Like others, I've marveled at your factories, your skyscrapers, and your arsenals.

But underlying everything else is the fact that America began as a God-loving, God-fearing, God-worshipping people."
