Barack Obama is negotiating a climate change treaty in secret. He is not discussing the treaty with congress but with some of the world’s most oppressive foreign leaders in the U.N. The treaty would require the U.S. to donate resources and wealth to the world’s developing countries to be distributed by the statists in the U.N.
If this happened six years ago, we might say it’s pure fiction, but it’s not and it’s the world we now live in under Barack Obama.
Congress will be bypassed and the Senate has already shown its willingness to cede its authority over treaties to Barack Obama. They are doing it in the case of the Iran nuclear deal and appear ready to give Obama fast track authority over the Trans-Pacific Partnership Treaty.
Perhaps the most dangerous treaty, however, will be that of climate change.
In Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee hearings on Wednesday, Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) asked State Department Acting Assistant Secretary Judith Garber if the administration plans “to pursue a course to try to make it [a climate change treaty] legally binding in the United States by bypassing Congress at the same time?”
Without making any effort to deny the real possibility of an unconstitutional fiat, she unabashedly stated, “Our objective for Paris is to have a significant agreement, a meaningful agreement with robust and transparent emissions reduction targets that include all countries, including the major emerging economies. At this point the question of what that agreement would look like at the end is still an open question because we are at initial stages of the negotiations and everything is still on the table.”
The arrogance of this administration is stunning. They simply dodge questions.
Barrasso tried again. “So no decision’s been made about whether the administration plans to submit the agreement from Paris to the Senate for advice and consent?”
Garber stonewalled again but her non-answer was very telling in light of Obama’s imperialistic tendencies. “It’s at a very early stage in the negotiations.”
Barrasso wanted to know why $3 billion was going into the U.N. climate slush fund.
“The focus of our $3 billion request for the “Green Climate Fund” is to help reduce climate pollution and strengthen resilience with a particular focus on developing countries that are most vulnerable,” she answered vaguely.
It wasn’t very reassuring. It does show one thing – the U.S. administration plans to redistribute our wealth to developing countries in the name of their god – climate change.
This is another form of Marxist redistribution, only this time it will be given to corrupt dictatorial governments without any accountability and with no veto power by the American people. It is endless taxation without representation.
We will be punished for our wealth which the leftists think we’ve greedily accumulated from that which belongs to the world.
These are the entangling foreign alliances our forefathers warned us about.
“It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliance with any portion of the foreign world”, George Washington warned in his Farewell Address to us. The inaugural pledge of Thomas Jefferson was as clear: “Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations-entangling alliances with none.”
A treaty unilaterally agreed to by Obama, worked out in secret, and which redistributes our wealth to foreign dictators based on a science only proven on computer models, calls out for an entangling alliance.
We’ve been warned but who will stand up against it?
In November, 2010, a United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change told a German news outlet, “[W]e redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.”
A key player on the panel, Ottmar Edenhofer said:
“First of all, developed countries have basically expropriated the atmosphere of the world community. But one must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy. Obviously, the owners of coal and oil will not be enthusiastic about this. One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with environmental policy anymore, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole.”
Climate Change will be the most massive redistribution scheme in U.S. history. Obamacare will pale in comparison.
Global warming has become a religion for corrupt politicians and statists who have no regard for freedom or the constitution. It is being led by the U.N. and U.S. ideologues.
A well-intentioned Pope Francis will give it a moral stamp of approval and Obama will sign it without congress because they “failed to act” and because, according to Obama, there is no greater threat to our future.
Maurice Newman, chairman of Australia’s PM Tony Abbott, wrote in an op-ed for This Australian this week that “It [climate change] is opposed to capitalism and freedom and has made environmental catastrophism a household topic to achieve its objective.”
He believes it’s a hook to bring about a new world order with the U.N. in control.
Whether he is right or not, do we really want to let this extremism go on and find out after it’s too late that it was a ruse or dangerous extremism?
Obama is ruling unilaterally and he is a man of the extreme far-left. He’s a kook. We need to be concerned.
