In this bold and provocative new book, Diplomatic Divorce, Tom Kilgannon argues that failure to understand the United Nations and the motivations of the people who run it imperils not only America’s international sovereignty but ultimately America’s independence. Kilgannon, who has reported from UN events around the world, provides an eye-opening look at how a corrupt haven of second-rate bureaucrats from third-world countries is dictating the future of the world’s only superpower—and leading us down the road to ruin. In Diplomatic Divorce, Kilgannon contends that the United Nations—with the help of international, anti-American lobbyists—is assaulting American values on a number of fronts, from national security to trade to tax policy to the Internet. Our First Amendment is under attack from UN bureaucrats who are trying to wrest control of the Internet from the United States. Global gun-grabbers have our Second Amendment in their crosshairs as they work toward an international Arms Trade Treaty which will ban the private ownership of firearms. Kilgannon shows how despite President Bush’s work, members of America’s military are still in jeopardy of being tried before Kofi Annan’s International Criminal Court and how Congress has outsourced its constitutional responsibility to the World Trade Organization.Leading Democrats like Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, John Kerry and others, Kilgannon explains, “have abandoned their faith in America for the empty promises of a global cult...which is hopelessly corrupt, inherently flawed and anti-American to the core.” These apostles of universal law have hung our Constitution on the discount rack. For these reasons and more, he argues, “it is time for America to end her love affair with the United Nations.”

Tom Kilgannon is right on target in Diplomatic Divorce. The United Nations with its army of Lilliputians has not only tied down the great Gulliver, but also stolen his platinum credit card, spit in his face, and killed his children. It has distorted our laws, perverted our foreign policy, and poisoned our culture. The UN has long been ripe for reform, but ripe has now turned to rotten, and it needs to be sent to the trash pile. As Americans, we must no longer sit by and watch as American freedoms are usurped by this international gang of crooks and bureaucratic riff-raff. We need to heed Kilgannon’s wisdom now and end this unholy love-affair.
Tom knows the aristocratic, liberal elites who are the pandering enablers and apologists for this corrupt, sovereignty-snatching, global bureaucracy. In the pages that follow, Tom Kilgannon exposes the scandals, corruption and conspiracies that the planetary potentates in the Big Blue Building on Turtle Bay try to keep hidden from the American public. Before accepting the premise that we should place the safety and security of the American people in the hands of the UN, our leaders should pay attention to this book, Diplomatic Divorce, and heed its advice.
In his excellent new book, Diplomatic Divorce, Tom Kilgannon has jump-started a long overdue conversation about America’s future relationship with the United Nations. He correctly argues that if America is to remain the greatest nation in the world, our relationship with the United Nations must end. I recommend it to every member of Congress who cares truly about America’s future.
—Former Congressman BOB BARR
Countries must maintain individual sovereignty and be responsible in the end for securing and protecting their people. America’s national security should never (never) be left to the whims and the corruptive forces of the United Nations or other international bodies that do not have the best interests of the United States at heart. In Diplomatic Divorce, Tom Kilgannon explains very eloquently why this is so critical in today’s world, especially in the global war against radical Islam. We cannot depend on the United Nations to be effective and successful in protecting our interests at home and abroad. Mr. Kilgannon also reveals the dangers American military personnel continue to face from the UN’s International Criminal Court. Diplomatic Divorce is a must read.

NRA knows the dangerous agenda of the United Nations to ban private ownership of firearms, as Kilgannon effectively points out. I have debated these global gun banners for years and know their objectives far too well. I recommend Diplomatic Divorce to every person who values the freedoms that are guaranteed by the United States Constitution.

Tom Kilgannon’s new book Diplomatic Divorce raises a very important question: Can we continue to reconcile participation in the United Nations with our Constitution and national sovereignty? Mr. Kilgannon concludes that we cannot, and I share his opinion. Forget about reform—the UN is inherently illegitimate, because supra-national government is an inherently illegitimate concept. Legitimate governments operate only by the consent of those they govern. Yet it is ludicrous to suggest that billions of people across the globe have in any way consented to UN governance. Diplomatic Divorce is a welcome and needed voice in the fight for American sovereignty.
