Obama to Hand Over American Sovereignty At U.N. Climate Change Meeting?

Traditional Values CoalitionDecember 3, 2009 – President Barack Hussein Obama is attending a United Nations climate change conference in Copenhagen on December 9. He is expected to sign a new Kyoto-type treaty with the U.N. that places the U.S. economy effectively under the control of United Nations bureaucrats. The treaty, however, must be ratified by the U.S. Senate before it becomes official.

British Lord Christopher Monckton, Margaret Thatcher’s former science advisor, has studied the Copenhagen climate change treaty and says it’s a blueprint for one-world government.

Lord Monckton was on Glenn Beck’s radio program to discuss the Copenhagen treaty and the danger it poses to United States sovereignty. He is considered the “Anti Al Gore” and publishes numerous materials debunking Gore’s Chicken Little ideas about the climate. (Listen here: Part 1; Part 2.)

According to Monckton, the Copenhagen treaty to be signed by Obama, “be a new, vast, interlocking, bureaucratic entity created at huge expense to you and me, and that bureaucratic entity will have three purposes, the first of which is twice stated to be government.”

The second purpose of the treaty involves the vast transfer of American wealth to Third World nations for what is called “climate debt.” America will be forced to pay up to 2% of our Gross National Product to Third World nations for allegedly having ruined the climate.

A third purpose of the treaty is “enforcement” of the confiscation of American tax dollars and of domestic policies impacting the environment.

Lord Monckton notes that the treaty sets up a series of “interlocking, technical panels that will have the right directly to intervene in the economies and the environments of individual countries over the heads of their elected governments.”

Lord Monckton put it bluntly: The Copenhagen treaty is a blueprint for a fledgling communist world government!

One of the original creators of the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is Canadian Morris Strong, who has been a long-time advocate of a one-world government.

Senate Can Block This Treaty

Lord Monckton believes that if Obama can’t get the Senate to ratify the Copenhagen treaty, he will try an end run around the Senate and push for legislation to implement the treaty by a simple majority in the House and Senate. This would enact the treaty as domestic law, which could later be repealed.

The Constitution gives the Senate the power to ratify treaties, but according to Thomas Jefferson, “In giving to the President and Senate a power to make treaties, the Constitution meant only to authorize them to carry into effect, by way of treaty, any powers they might constitutionally exercise.” (The Anas, 1793, ME 1:408).

Jefferson also noted: “I say... to the opinion of those who consider the grant of the treaty-making power as boundless: If it is, then we have no Constitution. If it has bounds, they can be no others than the definitions of the powers which that instrument gives.” --Thomas Jefferson to Wilson Nicholas, 1803. ME 10:419

The President and the Senate can only support treaties that are within the bounds of what the Constitution states are the rights of the President and Senate. They cannot legally enact a treaty that violates the Constitution or our Republican form of government by handing sovereignty over to a group of United Nations technical panels.
