Dear Friend of America's Survival, Inc.:

As Mitt Romney prepares to accept the Republican presidential nomination, we ought to turn our attention to his advisers. One of them is former Congressman Vin Weber, a lobbyist for pro-United Nations causes.I thought you might enjoy a column I wrote back on January 17, 2008,  entitled "Romney Surrounded by Pro-U.N. Lobbyists."

I pointed out that Vin Weber, a former Congressman and member of the board of the Council on Foreign Relations, worked for an organization promoting a U.S. taxpayer financial bailout of the United Nations. This group, the so-called Emergency Coalition for Financial Support of the U.N, included the pro-world government World Federalist Association, National Council of Churches, Catholics for a Free Choice, Americans for Democratic Action, and the United Nations Association.

The purpose of the Emergency Coalition for Financial Support of the U.N. was to get the U.S. Congress to pay a financial "debt" to the world organization.  But the "debt" was phony because the world body never gave the U.S. credit for certain contributions to U.N. peacekeeping operations that amounted to billions of dollars above what the U.S. supposedly owed the world body. I wrote about this issue extensively during the late 1990s.
