We, for the most part, take it for granted that America is a sovereign nation, right? Well, maybe not so much anymore. The initial assault on our sovereignty was sown about a hundred years ago by Woodrow Wilson, with the (thankfully failed) League of Nations. It was renewed shortly after WWII, with the creation of the UN, whose purpose has “evolved” over the years, and now is focused on taking away sovereignty not only from America, but from all nation states, and concentrating power within a one world government – headed within the UN.
This is not new, but it is a growing force that needs to be reckoned with. The most recent three examples that are troubling are:
1) The UN “Small Arms” Treaty. This has been around for a while, and has never gained a lot of traction, as it would put small arms trade – and gun ownership under the direct control of the UN, not the US. The difference now is that Hillary Clinton is pushing it, and it may, in fact, come up for ratification in the lame duck.
2) The Law of the Sea Treaty. This has also been around for a long time, and has been rejected by every president from Reagan on. In this case, our total sovereignty would be transferred to a UN Commission based in Jamaica. This president, backed by John Kerry and Trent Lott, are in favor. (See prior posts on LOST.) Again,the goal is to bring it up for ratification in the looming lame duck.
3) Rio +20. This is a UN Conference in Rio de Janerio, Brazil that officially starts Friday, 6/22. But there are about 30,000 people that have been there writing the “draft” for a couple of weeks. This was ostensibly to update Kyoto (never adopted by the US), but it morphed into something completely different. The global warming crap is essentially gone. The 600 page “draft” is all about establishing a new UN based government, with the power to tax “rich” countries (us), and redistribute the ill gotten gains to “poor” countries. It is more importantly about scaling back our ability to live as we choose, and moving backward toward a more agrarian lifestyle for everyone on the planet.
This is Thomas Malthus revisited – along with a big dose of Paul Ehrlich,,who is there. These ideas have failed again and again, but refuse to die.
Unfortunately, the US representatives that are there are all for it. (See; CFACT.org, and climate depot.com for more.)
God help us. It is clear that the administration not only won’t, but is actively trying to push us over the edge into a UN based one world government – formerly known as Communism.
