Is America About To Lose Its Sovereignty
On October 14, Lord Christopher Monckton gave a presentation in St. Paul, MN on the subject of global warming. In this 4-minute excerpt from his speech, he issues a dire warning to all Americans regarding the United Nations Climate Change Treaty that is scheduled to be signed in Copenhagen in December 2009.
A draft of the treaty can be read here:
Chuck Norris has an article in WorldNetDaily with a good analysis of the treaty:
There has been considerable debate raised about Monckton's conclusion that the Copenhagen Treaty would cede US sovereignty. His comments appear to be based upon his interpretation of the The Supremacy Clause in the US Constitution (Article VI, paragraph 2). This clause establishes the Constitution, Federal Statutes, and U.S. TREATIES as the supreme law of the land. Concerns have been raised in the past that a particularly ambitious treaty may supersede the US Constitution. In the 1950s, a constitutional amendment, known as the Bricker Amendment, was proposed in response to such fears, but it failed to pass. You can read more about the Bricker Amendment in a 1953 Time Magazine article:
Lord Monckton served as a policy adviser to Margaret Thatcher. He has repeatedly challenged Al Gore to a debate to which Gore has refused. Monckton sued to stop Gore's film "An Inconvenient Truth" from being shown in British schools due to its inaccuracies. The judge found in-favor of Monckton, ordering 9 serious errors in the film to be corrected. Lord Monckton travels internationally in an attempt to educate the public about the myth of global warming.
Anyone who watches the Discovery channels knows the earth is getting warmer because (as other planets are also experiencing in our solar system) it is getting closer to the sun. Closer to the sun a planet gets the more it heats up. In fact, anyone who studies the planet geologically knows that events of the planet getting warmer or colder is nothing new. In man's stupidity and man's agenda, politicians are trying to make more out of this than is warranted.
We cannot allow politicians to use our fears as a tool in their political kits to manipulate us into accepting what we would not normally accept in a regular situation.
