Hours After Obama Victory – Administration Backs UN Arms Treaty

Iran was named to the group overseeing the U.N. Arms Treaty Conference earlier this year. (Stand Up America)

Less than a day after Obama’s election, the US backed a UN treaty to regulate arms.
Obama delayed the talks during election season.
Reuters reported:

Hours after U.S. President Barack Obama was re-elected, the United States backed a U.N. committee’s call on Wednesday to renew debate over a draft international treaty to regulate the $70 billion global conventional arms trade.

U.N. delegates and gun control activists have complained that talks collapsed in July largely because Obama feared attacks from Republican rival Mitt Romney if his administration was seen as supporting the pact, a charge Washington denies.

The month-long talks at U.N. headquarters broke off after the United States – along with Russia and other major arms producers – said it had problems with the draft treaty and asked for more time.

But the U.N. General Assembly’s disarmament committee moved quickly after Obama’s win to approve a resolution calling for a new round of talks March 18-28. It passed with 157 votes in favor, none against and 18 abstentions.

U.N. diplomats said the vote had been expected before Tuesday’s U.S. presidential election but was delayed due to Superstorm Sandy, which caused a three-day closure of the United Nations last week.

The Obama Administration insists they will not accept any treaty that infringes on the constitutional rights of American citizens.

  • Alvin

    Is this internal to countries, or between countries? It matters. What is “conventional arms trade”?

  • Multitude

    It’s easy for Obama to say he won’t step on the Constitution. He has clearly stated that the second amendment is to ensure the National Guard militias can have guns.

    Nobody else. “This is the image of a progressive stomping on a conservative head forever.”

  • At least half of this nation will not go silently into the night if our second amendment rights are infringed upon. As #4 & #6, I would have to have more information…

    just a sample:

    The First Global Revolution: Blueprint for a new global order

    “In searching for the new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. In their totality and in their interactions these phenomena do constitute a common threat which demands the solidarity of all peoples. But in designating them as the enemy, we fall into the trap about which we have already warned, namely mistaking symptoms for cause. All these dangers are caused by human intervention and it is only through changing attitudes and behaviors that they can be overcome. The real enemy, then, is humanity itself.”

    ‘Timeline to Global Governance’

    [Means and Methods

    . Unelected boards, councils and commissions. Responsibilities of government are assigned to unelected people – accountable to nobody but the people who are funding them. These unelected bodies are equivalent to communist soviets. They take direction from unseen entities usually national and international bodies to implement the policies, rules and regulations to enable the globalist agenda. …

    . Regionalization. The implementation of regional, unelected government structures cannabalizes the powers of our traditional representative government structures within the legal jurisdictions we all understand. Regional structures are hidden in the sense that they are not recognized by the public and there is no accountability to the public. Here again, unelected regional commissions answer to hidden powers and they implement the agendas of those powers. The agenda is dissolution of our nation – our national sovereignty as the global governance system rises. The war in the Middle East is to create a regional governance structure MEFTA superimposed on existing governments. MEFTA will put the Middle East in the Global trading system under the WTO – which is an organization run by and for the multinational corporations. The WTO and ‘free trade’ agreements are what have been used to gut our economy. They established a rigged game in which American domestic businesses and in fact, any domestic businesses in virtually any country (except Communist China and Socialist India) can’t succeed. These agreements basically sell market share of domestic businesses to multinational corporations – who then flood the market with products (and human capital) at costs lower than the domestic businesses can attain. The domestic business goes out of business – and the multinational picks up the market share.

    . Loss of Private Property Rights – including water rights. Environmental front groups are in the lead on this. The government provides the regulation making it virtually impossible for land owners to keep their property. Environmental groups like Nature Conservancy then steps in to buy the property.

    . Official obliviousness to anarchists and foreigners on our soil demonstrating for rights for non-citizens. They make a pretense of protecting our borders while encouraging illegal aliens in every way possible.

    . They are flooding our labor markets with cheap foreign labor – taking jobs away from American citizens which impoverishes them. It’s difficult for poor people to organize and fight back in any way other than physical destruction. The Congress has become a corrupt government that is for sale to the highest bidders. Impoverished Americans have to pull with a Congress that is bought and paid for by corporate lobbyists.

    . They are selling off U.S. assets – the going out of business sale.]

    It is the Constitution or it is the UN Preamble, not both. We cannot gain back what we give away.

    This gives the UN authority over our 2nd amendment rights. We do not need the UN overseeing our nation, as in elections, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and the right to bear arms.

    This was a deliberate deception of the O administration, and makes this reader suspect of the whispers of President Obama to the Russian Leadership “After the Election”…”More Flexibility”…

    As I understand the purpose of the UN as stated below, it allows the UN to oversee its enforcement if needed, and allows other nations to call for inspection and regulation. It requires another level of approval for us to maintain our 2nd amendment rights, because our firearm laws will need to be rewritten and approved through congress, the senate, the president, and then the UN. It threatens our rights as individuals and as a sovereign nation. Furthermore, this treaty serves no purpose to national security, in fact it will rip the United States of “Peace through Strength.” I believe to bury this issue until the day after the election by the administration shows they knew they did not have the support of the American people behind its initiative. The initiative has been proposed in the previous administration however was opposed as such due to the oath of the president to uphold the constitution and protect the citizen’s bill of rights. The following is the purpose of the United Nations, which will trump the United States Constitution, as you cannot have both; it is one or the other.

    “To maintain international peace and security, and to that end: to take effective collective measures for the prevention and removal of threats to the peace, and for the suppression of acts of aggression or other breaches of the peace, and in conformity with the principles of justice and international law,”

  • As usual the UN lies and Reuters regurgitate. The vote was put on hold till after the election months ago

    Obama Years Ago Helped Fund Carbon Program
    He Is Now Pushing Through Congress

    [In 2000 and 2001, while Barack Obama served as a board member for a Chicago-based charitable foundation, he helped to fund a pioneering carbon trading exchange that is likely to fill a critical role in the controversial cap-and-trade carbon reduction scheme that President Obama is now trying to push rapidly through Congress.

    During those two years, the Joyce Foundation gave nearly $1.1 million in two separate grants that were instrumental in developing and launching the privately-owned Chicago Climate Exchange, which now calls itself “North America’s only cap and trade system for all six greenhouse gases, with global affiliates and projects worldwide.”]

    Proposed UN Environmental Constitution For The World Would
    Establish An Incredibly Repressive System Of Global Governance

    [Essentially what this proposed environmental covenant does is it takes
    the sustainable development principles underlying Agenda 21 and turns
    them into global constitutional law.

    All parties to this new constitution would be forced to turn their nations
    into centrally-planned societies where all decisions about everything are
    evaluated within the framework of sustainable development.

    If the United States became a party to this treaty, America would
    become a paradise for control freaks. Basic decisions about what
    you eat, about what you wear, about where you live, about how
    big a family you can have and about what activities you could
    engage in on a daily basis would be dictated by the mandates in
    the global constitution.

    If you doubt this, just read the document.]

    Just how will a UN treaty stop the use of AK-47s, when it is use on children in Syria, by both the government and rebels.

    There will be more legal guns sales in the next few months that one could supply a small army. And illegal sales that could supply a large army.

    It may be interesting to note that the Chicago Climate Exchange in spite of its hype, is a veritable rat’s nest of cronyism. The largest shareholder in the Exchange is Goldman Sachs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama, Board Member of the Joyce Foundation, funded the formation of the CCX. ( Valerie Jarrett is still on the board, Obama’s top adviser.) Obama sat on board and funneled money to Ayer’s brother (wild huh, just a guy in his neighborhood) and to form the CCX.

    2nd Update. Last week Obama met with 3 Executives of companies that were CEO’s of Defense Contract Companies. His administration asked them to hold off on the layoffs until November 13th, 2012 pending his ‘definite re-election’. There will be approx 2500 defense jobs cut immediately across the board, but the goal will be to cut 25 percent of defense budgets. This too comes from a source inside Alexandria. We are blessed with friends from across the nation to give us the feeds that will keep you informed. America Voted him back in; or did they?

    China submarines soon to carry nukes, draft US report says

    China in the meantime remains “the most threatening” power in cyberspace and presents the largest challenge to U.S. supply chain integrity, the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission said in a draft of its 2012 report to the U.S. Congress.

    China is alone among the original nuclear weapons states to be expanding its nuclear forces, the report said. The others are the United States, Russia, Britain and France.

    Beijing is “on the cusp of attaining a credible nuclear triad of land-based intercontinental ballistic missiles, submarine-launched ballistic missiles, and air-dropped nuclear bombs,” the report says.

    China has had a largely symbolic ballistic missile submarine capability for decades but is only now set to establish a “near-continuous at-sea strategic deterrent,” the draft said.

    The deployment of such a hard-to-track, submarine-launched leg of China’s nuclear arsenal could have significant consequences in East Asia and beyond. It also could add to tensions between the United States and China, the world’s two biggest economies.

    Any Chinese effort to ensure a retaliatory capability against a notional U.S. nuclear strike “would necessarily affect Indian and Russian perceptions about the potency of their own deterrent capabilities vis-à-vis China,” the report said, for instance.


    China is party to many major international pacts and regimes regarding nuclear weapons and materials. But it remains outside of key arms limitation and control conventions, such as the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty signed in April 2010 and the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty. The United States historically has approached these bilaterally with Russia.

    Congress should require the U.S. State Department to spell out current and planned efforts to integrate China into existing and future nuclear arms reduction, limitation, and control discussions and agreements, the draft said.

    Here’s a crazy idea… Federalism restored by strong governors. How many governor pick-ups did the Republicans have? You know, it wasn’t until the 20th century that functionally the nation looked toward the Federal government to solve all its problems. Even after the Civil War, states were what mattered and if you look at the communist experiment California is pursuing and contrast it with Texas’s more moderate experiment, the concept is still alive.

    Don’t push back as a weak minority being bullied by Barack and Harry Reid in DC. Change the map; choose a different landscape. Successful nations such as the Swiss don’t even have a strong national government entity. Local government restores the connection with the people, requires they be more engaged, allows them to know their leaders and hold them accountable (e.g. were Barack and Michelle to blow tens of millions of the peoples money in rural Missouri on vacations, flying Barack’s barber in weekly, etc., they would be run out of town on a rail).

    The new opportunity to change and recover democracy is strangely a democratic one. It’s time for the state governors and legislators to buckle up and push back against Barack’s radically expanding progressive totalitarianism.

    Alvin commented:

    Treaties are agreements between countries. Treaties often include an agreement to modify a country’s internal laws.

    For example, the The Patent Law Treaty (PLT) is a patent law multilateral treaty concluded on 1 June, 2000 in Geneva, Switzerland, by 53 States and the European Patent Organisation (an intergovernmental organization). Its aim is to harmonize formal procedures such as the requirements to obtain a filing date for a patent application, the form and content of a patent application, and representation.

    That is, the whole point of the Patent Law Treaty was to get a bunch of countries to agree to a model law that they would pass within their own territories — change their internal laws. Treaties, especially those involving trade, more often than not are intended to affect the internal laws of the countries.

    “Conventional arms trade” may be a term defined in the treaty. In that event, we have to see a copy of the treaty to know what it means. In common terms, “conventional arms” has been used loosely to mean non-nuclear, non-biological, non-chemical, non-missile armaments. That is, weapons, excluding weapons of mass destruction.

    There is no doubt that the international arms trade in conventional weapons as well as weapons of war must be regulated, that some weapons are rightly banned, and that the nations can and should have many, many common elements.

    The problem here is that US citizens are aware that our own Federal Government, presided over by Barack Obama, has deliberately failed to enforce our own internal laws prohibiting the trade of certain types of weapons, thereby allowing thousands of banned automatic weapons to flow to drug cartels.

    This has resulted in the deaths of our own border agents, and hundreds of citizens of other countries.

    This operation was conducted without the advice and consent of our neighboring country’s government (Mexico, there may be others, as well), and was patterned after a failed program the previous administration (under George W. Bush) had shut down for failure to achieve its legitimate objectives. Under the Bush administration, an attempt was made to put tracers on weapons and then follow the weapons to the buyers. The problem was that the sellers detected the tracers and removed them, thereby eliminating the ability to follow the weapons.

    Under the Obama administration, thousands of unmarked weapons were merely allowed to leave the country and then picked up later, at crime scenes. Such weapons were used to make the political point in the United States that the United States NEEDS STRICTER GUN CONTROL LAWS.

    The major news organs in the United States have portrayed the resulting scandal and its death count as a non-story, mere political theater by the Republicans.

    Some United States citizens view it as an act of war. The rest of us are grateful that the government of Mexico, whose people have been killed by those weapons, are grateful that the country has not yet taken that position.

  • The term “Well Regulated” in the Second Amendment meant “Well Manned and Equipped ” in 1791 as was determined in the 1939 United States v. Miller case after referencing the autobiography of Benjamin Franklin. The concept of Government Regulation, as we understand it today, did not exist at the time. United States v. Miller also determined that the term “Arms” refers to “Ordinary Military Weapons”. American Citizens have the right to Keep and Bear, which means Own and Carry, any weapons that a soldier carries into battle. That includes past, present and future weapons. The American people still have some work to do with regard to taking back their rights.
