Obama's new world order

According to Christopher Monckton, a former major policy advisor to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, our President is on the path to creating a new world government.  From Jeffrey Kuhner at the Washington Times:
Global-warming alarmists are using the myth of climate change to impose an embryonic socialist world government. Following the collapse of communism, the West's progressive elites desperately searched for a viable ideological alternative. They found it in environmentalism.

Although the Green movement wraps itself in the flag of empirical science, it represents the very opposite: a dogma that provides meaning and purpose to its rabid followers. The ideology justifies massive tax increases and government control of the economy; it seeks to cripple free enterprise and curtail market-driven growth. Many of today's Greens are yesterday's Reds.

Global warming is the greatest fraud of our time. The overwhelming scientific evidence shows that, rather than getting hotter, the Earth's temperatures are cooling. Increasing numbers of leading scientists are challenging the flawed computer models used by eco-alarmists.
The climate treaty still has to be negotiated, and many countries, such as India, China and Canada are clearly not on board (see my previous post, Copenhagen climate consortium collapse).  More from Mr. Kuhner:
Yet the draft version is clear about the treaty's essential elements.

It calls for a massive transfer of wealth from the developed world to the developing world. The United States would be forced to spend billions of dollars a year in foreign aid to pay for a so-called "climate debt" - a provision to punish wealthy countries for having historically emitted large amounts of CO2, while compensating poor ones for not contributing to greenhouse gases.
This massive redistribution of national wealth is not the worst of it.  Continuing from the article,
Moreover, Mr. Monckton points out that, in paragraph 38, Annex 1, the Copenhagen draft calls for a U.N.-created "government" responsible for taxation, enforcement and redistribution. In other words, the draft treaty explicitly demands that the world body erect an international mechanism with the power to impose emission-reduction targets for each country, determine acceptable levels of CO2 and levy global taxes.

The United States would lose control over its environmental policy. Also, it would sign its death warrant as a functioning democracy, enabling the United Nations to administer a fledgling world government possessing the authority to regulate and tax the American economy. The treaty is a sword aimed at the heart of our national sovereignty.

If Mr. Obama signs the Copenhagen treaty, he "will sign your freedom, your democracy, and your prosperity away forever," Mr. Monckton recently told an audience in Minnesota. "I read that treaty and what it says is this: that a world government is going to be created."
Read the entire article.

Our constitution requires approval by 67 votes in the Senate, but Lord Monckton fears that Obama will try to circumvent this.  Given the recent push for health insurance mandates, the takeover of major segments of the automobile and banking industries, and the dissolution of secured bondholders' rights,  I'm not sure his fears are without merit.

If my memory serves, I believe Monckton will be on the Glenn Beck show on Fox News Channel Monday (10/26) at 5PM.  Don't miss it.

  1. My favorite Obama quotes:

    . President Barack Obama says he's uncomfortable using the word "victory" to describe the United States' goal in Afghanistan.

    . “We’re not a Christian Nation. We Are A Muslim Nation”

    . "I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody"
