The key to every homicidal despot, tyrannical mass murderer, State-sponsored genocide, ethnic cleansing or subjugation of the populace is to disarm the people. First.
It’s pretty simple, actually – you absolutely must outlaw and confiscate guns before you can enslave people, march them into ovens, murder millions and let them rot in the fields, wipe out a culture or rid the country of the educated or politically adverse.
It’s a matter of History. Facts… There is no gun control, only people control.
It took a little more than seven years, but the United Nations, with the full backing of the Obama Administration, passed the first ever UN treaty to regulate the worldwide arms trade. Sounds good! Who wants international arms dealers running around causing trouble, am I right? You’d have to be nuts to be against this, and indeed, only the countries of North Korea, Iran and Syria voted against it (Russia and China abstained).
Here’s the rub: In order to enforce this waste of time, 50 countries would have to ratify the treaty, including the United States. On top of that, 2/3rds of the Senate would have to approve ratification, and that ain’t happening, my friend. Never the less, Barack Obama and his gun-obsessed Administration took up this cause and our new Secretary of State, John Kerrey is all over it with praise and assurance that it won’t infringe on American’s right to bear arms.
Everyone who believes that raise your hand – then slap yourself on the head. This is the Obama Administration. There’s always intended consequences because there’s always an agenda. John Kerrey is promising us that the treaty only deals with international sales and is all about terrorists and keeping missionaries safe. But one must only look at who makes up the global gun control forces to understand their endgame, which is a worldwide universal gun ban which overrides our Bill of Rights and thus, our national sovereignty.
The Coalition for Gun Control, the Ford Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, Ploughshares Fund, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence – and the list goes on – have been pushing their toes in the door of worldwide gun control, and all express the same goal: To have a mechanism to usurp the U.S. Constitution, specifically The Second Amendment. For decades they’ve financed efforts to institute global gun control measures such as international gun registration, prohibiting ownership of weapons by civilians and allow the “world criminal court” to supersede our own legal system when it comes to violations.
As usual, the proposal is couched as vital to our security and anyone opposed to it is smeared as being soft on international crime. Indeed, Senators James Inhofe (R-Okla.) Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), and Max Baucus (D-Mont.) all declared that the UN Arms Trade Treaty undermines Constitutional freedoms to bear arms, and were quickly painted as backers of global violence, and owned by the NRA. The Senators rightly claim that a treaty in which Syria, Iran and North Korea (and probably China and Russia) have no intent to abide by is not just a waste of time, but will only limit the rights of law-abiding American gun owners. Sound familiar?
So while we’re on the subject of waste, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that although the Obama Administration canceled White House tours for kids because of sequestration, they somehow managed to come up with a 4% increase in spending on the UN to $3.6 billion in 2014. And according to a Fox News report, hundreds of millions more are regularly drained through various other U.N. institutions, which doubles the official figure. The most recent accounting on the White House Management and Budget website, puts total spending on the U.N. for 2010 at $7.7 billion. Weren’t we in a full-blown recession then? Wait… aren’t we in one now?
The U.S. contributes more to the UN than any other country – 22% of the regular UN budget and 27% of the peacekeeping budget, and what do we get for it? I mean, other than gun control and the overruling of the Constitution? And if you thought all the cold weather and catching scientists cooking the books on research meant the end of the global warming scam – think again.
Secretary of State John Kerry is one of the most ardent supporters of the effort to extract money from the taxpayer via climate change fear-mongering and could not be more excited to push urgent (end expensive) action to combat the earth getting warmer, cooler or staying the same, for that matter.
A look inside State Department offerings this upcoming year to “International Organizations and Programs” finds a 30% hike, to $13 million, for the U.N.-sponsored Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. So what if emails were discovered exposing that global warming scientists were toying with the data to make the situation seem far more precarious? What’s $13 million between friends? Listen to John Kerry in his introductory budget missive: “We must have the foresight and courage to make the investments necessary to safeguard the most sacred trust for our children and grandchildren: an environment not ravaged by rising seas, deadly superstorms, devastating droughts, and the other hallmarks of a dramatically changing climate.”
Did he ever consider the problem might be Al Gore opening and closing his refrigerator door so often? So the UN wants your guns and your money. You got a problem with that? What’s more, we’re funding the ropes they’ll hang us with.
You got a problem with that?
