The objective of the authors of the Treaty of Versailles with the definition of a League of Nations was to establish an international forum for discussion on the conduct of governments with respect to international law and treaty obligations. The United States Senate never ratified the Treaty of Versailles so U.S. participation in it was informal.
The organization of the League of Nations served as a model for a first attempt at a “government of governments”. The flaw was that they didn’t have any enforcement power for their decisions. The collectivists (communists) of the united nations corrected that flaw with agreements negotiated and signed leading to the establishment of the United Nations Association in 1945.

There is a lot of information about the founding of the United Nations and the conference in San Francisco but there are a couple of pieces of information that need to be highlighted. The following are excerpts from a web page written by the Office of the Historian of the State Department:
The governments of the United States, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom, and China formalized the Atlantic Charter proposals in January 1942, shortly after the United States entered the war. In the Declaration of the United Nations, these major Allied nations, along with 22 other states, agreed to work together against the Axis powers (Germany, Japan, and Italy), and committed in principle to the establishment of the United Nations after the war.
The major Allied Powers–the United States, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom, and China–reiterated their commitment to forming an international organization in the Moscow Declaration of October 30, 1943, and more concrete international planning for the structure of the new organization commenced. Representatives from these four countries met at Dumbarton Oaks in Washington, DC, from August 21 through October 7, 1944, and the four Allied powers issued a statement of Proposals for the Establishment of a General International Organization, largely based on the draft charter formulated by the State Department’s Subcommittee on International Organization, in consultation with the U.S. Congress.
At San Francisco, the delegates reviewed and often rewrote the text agreed to at Dumbarton Oaks. The delegations negotiated a role for regional organizations under the United Nations umbrella and outlined the powers of the office of Secretary General, including the authority to refer conflicts to the Security Council. Conference participants also considered a proposal for compulsory jurisdiction for a World Court, but Stettinius recognized such an outcome could imperil Senate ratification. The delegates then agreed that each state should make its own determination about World Court membership. The conference did approve the creation of an Economic and Social Council and a Trusteeship Council to assist in the process of decolonization, and agreed that these councils would have rotating geographic representation. The United Nations Charter also gave the United Nations broader jurisdiction over issues that were “essentially within” the domestic jurisdiction of states, such as human rights, than the League of Nations had, and broadened its scope on economic and technological issues.
Treason by Constitutional Process
The conspiracy and treason against the United States and the American people is revealed by the Vandenberg Resolution, passed by the Senate on June 11, 1948. Participation in regional organization imposed by constitutional process for the purpose of collectivizing American government policy and decision making outside the halls of Congress is subversion of the Republic and a high crime against the people of the United States of America.
Resolved, That the Senate reaffirm the policy of the United States to achieve international peace and security through the United Nations so that armed force shall not be used except in the common interest, and that the President be advised of the sense of the Senate that this Government, by constitutional process, should particularly pursue the following objectives within the United Nations Charter:
(2) Progressive development of regional and other collective arrangements for individual and collective self-defense in accordance with the purposes, principles, and provisions of the Charter.
(3) Association of the United States, by constitutional process, with such regional and other collective arrangements as are based on continuous and effective self-help and mutual aid, and as affect its national security.
Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.
(June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 807; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, §?330016(2)(J), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2148.)
On December 20, 1945, the Congress voted and passed the United Nations Participation Act. Cornell online law library lists the titles of law for this Act.
The United Nations has the Charter posted on their website HERE. It is also posted on the Yale Law School website, Avalon Project. The Yale version of it is easier to read because it is a continuous presentation of the articles. You can read it HERE.
In 1954, a speech by the Honorable Usher L. Burdick (ND) was placed into the Congressional Record. The title of the speech was The Great Conspiracy to Destroy the United States, (Source: American Deception website)
