I originally wrote about this threat in December of 2010. Now that the UN has, indeed, passed the treaty, Let's review, shall we?
With then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton having publicly stated that the Obama Administration would be working hand-in-glove with the UN to pass a new "Small Arms Treaty" American gun owners have been worried that with the constraints of another election no longer facing Obama, he can, and will, press ahead at -- flank speed -- to ram this treaty through the US Senate.
Nothing much REALLY changes. Nearly a half century before the birth of Christ a wise man said:
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious, but it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly, but the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear." - Marcus Tullius Cicero 42 BC.
Whoa! Hold on a consarned minute! - This was not supposed to happen. Americans were expected to just lie down and roll over for the gun grabbers this time.
See. It was all for the children. Works every time the progressive/Marxists try it. Except that -- it didn't work THIS time.
Why? Because the Marxists overstepped, overreached, went beyond the pale. Ignoring a fundamental constitutional right, one that is included in the Bill of Rights, which, by the way, a number of states demanded be included before they would ratify the constitution, was just TOO much.
Obama miscalculated. He screwed-up! His thirst for power blinded him to the limits placed upon him by the constitution and especially the Bill of Rights.
Creating God In Our Own Image - As socialism wraps it’s cold, icy, fingers around freedom’s throat. As I think back, the most obvious of the “warning signs” was/is the so-called “Green Movement” in America many Americans have slowly come to the realization that the socialist takeover of America did not happen overnight. There were plenty of warning signs over the past few decades.
Those who follow the Green Movement, the acolytes of the Global Warming “religion,” are easily identified by their unbridled compulsion to bow down to the false idols of science, to socialist politics, and, let us not forget… M O N E Y! You find them everywhere these days. Turn on a TV and there they are straining to burden you with a guilt trip about the damage YOU have done to the planet and how YOU must atone for your wickedness in order to be redeemed from your sins against the “Earth Mother.”
Go to church, and there they are, often in the pulpits, railing about YOUR sins NOT against God, but your sins against the Earth, the climate, the Polar bears, etc, etc.
North Korea's bluster has been an incessant noise in the background of our lives for so long now that nobody really pays attention anymore.
That may be a mistake.
North Korea today is about as unpredictable as a two-year old with a loaded -- and cocked -- revolver in his hand.
If the DPRK's new leader, basically a kid, is not soon gagged by North Korea's number one sponsor, China, he may well talk himself into doing something utterly stupid and bring a world of hurt down on himself and the people he holds in abject slavery.
The President Who Would Be Dictator- “These last few years we’ve seen an unacceptable abuse of power at home. We’ve paid a heavy price for having a president whose priority is expanding his own power.” You'd never guess it today, but these words are from a speech by President Obama back in 2007 when he was a candidate for President.
Washington - We've got a problem!
Just last year, Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, from the floor of the US Senate said: “The president looks more and more like a king that the Constitution was designed to replace.”
The senator is correct. Current presidents have entirely too much power.
