Hours After Obama Victory – Administration Backs UN Arms Treaty

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.

    1%, not those phony front bankers) have up their mandates
    for US.. 😡

    Where’s a copy of the draft treaty? It’s important to know what the treaty actually says.

  • Economan

    This devil violates his oath of office as often as he violates the sanctity of life. Yet people will vote for him. We have an insane population.

  • 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.]

    Get ready to hear “we have to ratify the treaty before we can know what’s in it.”

    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,”

    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.]

    don’t say you didn’t have clue, like more than half the nation holds that
    title to.. /s/

    Boehner to Obama: ‘This is your moment,’ ‘we want you to succeed’

    Very Odd Boehner uses the opportunity of this election disaster to take a shot at Rush’s infamous ” I hope he fails ” line. He is the coward most responsible for this election disaster by alienating the Tea Party voter. That fraud vote he cast over the sham rules change at Mitt’s convention, his cave in during the 2010 lame duck session…his debt ceiling cave in….Another one of these fascist Catholics in DC transforming America into Satan’s counterfeit Kingdom .

    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.
