You Tell Me

Watch this video, recorded last week, of a portion of Britain's Lord Monckton's address to an American audience on the great global warming swindle.

Here's a transcript:

...And what are we doing instead? At [the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in] Copenhagen, this December, weeks away, a treaty will be signed. Your president will sign it. Most of the third world countries will sign it, because they think they’re going to get money out of it. Most of the left-wing regime from the European Union will rubber stamp it. Virtually nobody won’t sign it.

I read that treaty. And what it says is this, that a world government is going to be created. The word “government” actually appears as the first of three purposes of the new entity. The second purpose is the transfer of wealth from the countries of the West to third world countries, in satisfaction of what is called, coyly, “climate debt” – because we’ve been burning CO2 and they haven’t. We’ve been screwing up the climate and they haven’t. And the third purpose of this new entity, this government, is enforcement.

How many of you think that the word “election” or “democracy” or “vote” or “ballot” occurs anywhere in the 200 pages of that treaty? Quite right, it doesn’t appear once. So, at last, the communists who piled out of the Berlin Wall and into the environmental movement, who took over Greenpeace so that my friends who funded it left within a year, because [the communists] captured it – Now the apotheosis as at hand. They are about to impose a communist world government on the world. You have a president who has very strong sympathies with that point of view. He’s going to sign it. He’ll sign anything. He’s a Nobel Peace Prize [winner]; of course he’ll sign it.


And the trouble is this; if that treaty is signed, if your Constitution says that it takes precedence over your Constitution (sic), and you can’t resign from that treaty unless you get agreement from all the other state parties – And because you’ll be the biggest paying country, they’re not going to let you out of it.

So, thank you, America. You were the beacon of freedom to the world. It is a privilege merely to stand on this soil of freedom while it is still free. But, in the next few weeks, unless you stop it, your president will sign your freedom, your democracy, and your humanity away forever. And neither you nor any subsequent government you may elect will have any power whatsoever to take it back. That is how serious it is. I’ve read the treaty. I’ve seen this stuff about [world] government and climate debt and enforcement. They are going to do this to you whether you like it or not.

But I think it is here, here in your great nation, which I so love and I so admire – it is here that perhaps, at this eleventh hour, at the fifty-ninth minute and fifty-ninth second, you will rise up and you will stop your president from signing that dreadful treaty, that purposeless treaty. For there is no problem with climate and, even if there were, an economic treaty does nothing to [help] it.

So I end by saying to you the words that Winston Churchill addressed to your president in the darkest hour before the dawn of freedom in the Second World War. He quoted from your great poet Longfellow:

Sail on, O Ship of State!
Sail on, O Union, strong and great!
Humanity with all its fears,
With all the hopes of future years,
Is hanging breathless on thy fate!

Watch the vids, plow through the draft treaty, read the commentary, and make up your own mind.

I have, and thus will end as did Denninger:

Treaties require approval of two-thirds of the Senate, and although I have seen that he states Hussein will pass it with a simple majority in the House and Senate, this doesn't make sense, as it cannot become law without this. It certainly seems, it would be struck down forthwith by the courts; however, if it was not, then it shall be the last line in the sand, no ifs, ands or buts.

Extremely scary video. As B.T. says, it has to go through the legal system, but what legal system? We already know it's a joke to even think that congress and the senate work for US anymore. They do as they please and feed US excuses and lies until we can't listen to them anymore.
This IS the line in the sand. If not, we will be doing the same thing and bending over 5-10 years from now, only weaker and poorer than ever. Many of US ask, how long can this keep going on? As long as we keep doing nothing! Marching around with signs praising Faux News will not scare them to death, let alone stop the theft and lies.
Remember the line in the sand and decide what it means to you, IT IS NOW OR NEVER! Semper Fidelis

Probably 98% of Americans do not realize that the Constitution subordinates itself to foreign treaties. Washington himself warned about such entanglements in his farewell address. Millions of people who have chanted the mantra "It can't happen here" are in for a major shock!

"The second purpose is the transfer of wealth from the countries of the West to third world countries, in satisfaction of what is called, coyly, 'climate debt' – because we’ve been burning CO2 and they haven’t."

Do they not teach chemistry in the schools any more? Burning CO2? Sheesh. CO2 does not burn. As a matter of fact, you can use it to PUT OUT fires. Things that contain carbon (C), like gasoline, or wood, or coal, burn in the presence of oxygen (O) to make carbon-dioxide (CO2).

Plants then use solar energy to split that CO2 back into carbon, which they use to grow themselves, and oxygen, which they release into the atmosphere for us to breathe, or burn. It's an incredible symbiotic relationship. CO2 is not a pollutant. It is absolutely necessary for life to exist on planet Earth. We breathe in oxygen and breathe out CO2. Plants breathe in CO2 and breathe out oxygen.

But watch out for hydrogen hydroxide. You could drown! :)

US Constititon, Article 2, Section 2, as Brock Townsend rightly points out the president requires a 2/3 approval. "He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur;..."

What worries me is the "two thirds of the Senators present" part...

Brock is also correct that if that treaty is signed and ratified....that's it.

Moreover, how many RINOs have the spine to stand up against the domestic and international pressure that will be brought to bear, even if they are in the chamber?

Maybe his worldview of how humans should interact includes the legitimacy of being sold into slavery. Mine doesn't.

Folks, if this goes through and is actioned on, it won't be long before an uprising occurs, -somewhere.

This kind of a lopsided, harmful treaty has the makings of war all over it. Someone, somewhere will claim someone, somewhere didn't live up to, or execute something or another properly and seeing no recourse or resolution, start beligerant action. It's inevitable.

Just look at 20th century history, world wars there were started on considerably lesser grounds...

More and more it's looking like the excrement is nearer the rotating device...

Hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst.

Ratification DOES NOT require 2/3 of the senate, just "2/3 of the Senators PRESENT.

The Dhimms have already pulled off a "gaming" of the system by declaring debate ended for the day and sending everyone home. The Dhimms - who knew what was happening - stayed in the building. Once enough of the Retardlicans were gone, they issued a call-back and passed the measure.

Or witness the use of "reconciliation - an obscure parliamentary procedure - to pass the Health Care takeover with only 51 votes instead of the 66 it would have otherwise taken.

These people are THE ENEMY and they'll stop at NOTHING to destroy the country they're charged to defend.

Remember they took the same oath to the Constitution that you did, but see it as only something to be worked around if it gets in the way of their plans.

Never forget who you're dealing with!

Please, the Constitution IS NOT subservient to ANY treaty:

Key concepts to remember:
A treaty is an agreement between nations. As such, it is outward looking, and outward acting between nations. Constitutionally it can not require any action from a treaty nation toward its’ own people. A treaty between nation A and nation B can not require for example, nation A to enslave 50% of its population and for nation B to murder 35% of its population. A Constitutionally valid treaty can only address relations between nations, and cannot require any action from a citizen, nor can it place any requirements upon the citizens of a nation.

Some may point to Article VI, Section II, believing that it declares treaties to be the supreme law of the land. It does not. Read what it says (below) - to paraphrase, the Constitution and only laws made in support of same are supreme. This means that any law or treaty not in agreement (pursuance thereof) with the Constitution lacks validity. Further, for treaties it states “under the Authority of the United States” - the important point is that Constitutional authority of the United States government is very limited as to what the US may do – only those things specifically authorized by the Constitution are permitted, and all other activities are forbidden to the US government as limited by the 10th Amendment. This is the purpose of the Bill of Rights. The Bill of Rights does not provide any rights, it merely lists some of the many that pre-date the Constitution – we do not acquire any “rights” from government or from the Constitution itself - –these rights exist if there is a Constitution, or if there is not. Do Not Ever Forget This.

Article VI (2nd clause)
“This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.”

Now, let us further look to the phrase “all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.”

Confusion occurs when we neglect to read this as the Founders intended. For some it seems to indicate that treaties are supreme over the Constitution. It does not say that at all. It says that treaties made in accordance with the requirements and inherent Constitutional limitations ( “pursuance of”) take precedence over state laws and STATE CONSTITUTIONS. The intent was that if a state (let us pick Florida for example) had a disagreement with a country (let’s choose Cuba) the laws or constitution of Florida could not require the United States government or any state judges to follow the requirements of Florida in dealing with Cuba.

Do not suffer anyone telling you that a treaty can take away your rights. This does not mean that we should allow such treaties, it does mean that they must be viewed in the proper perspective – just because it passes does not give it any validity. It only has the validity you permit
