UN Arms Trade Treaty: Every U.S. Senator Must Be Held Accountable (Video)

Written by 

For several decades now we have been warning that globalist politicians in one administration after another, as well as in Congress, have been working to disarm the American people through international agreements and United Nations treaties. For decades those warnings, which were statements of fact, were dismissed by the “progressive-minded” as paranoia. Well, the Obama administration has signed the Arms Trade Treaty and the battle now goes to the Senate.

For decades, the United Nations has been pushing an agenda for all nations of the world to disarm their peoples. Civilians — individual citizens — must not have recourse to arms, says the UN. Governments must have a monopoly on force. According to the UN, only authorized state parties — that is, governments and their military and police agencies — should be allowed to possess or have access to guns and ammunition.

What was the Obama Administration’s response to the UN’s demands for disarmament? On October 14 of 2009, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, released a press statement on the United States’ support for the Arms Trade Treaty. On September 25, 2013, current Secretary of State John Kerry, signed it.

Obama, Clinton, and Kerry, and many of their like-minded cohorts in government and the media, have been in favor of disarming the American people. Their records show it, even though, at times, they pretend to defer to their oath of office to defend the Constitution, including even the Second Amendment.

President Obama has issued one executive order after another directly violating the Constitution. His administration has not missed an opportunity to use any and every murderous act of armed violence — from the Aurora shooting to Newtown to the Washington Navy Yard — as a pretext for further infringing the natural right of self defense of all law abiding Americans. The federal government’s still-unfolding “Fast and Furious” gunrunning operation to Mexico’s murderous drug cartels is another case in point. It has demonstrated that this administration is even willing to break the law and illegally funnel arms to foreign criminals — and then turn around and use the inevitable homicidal mayhem that is unleashed with those weapons that they have provided as a further argument to disarm the American people.

On September 25, 2013, Secretary of State John Kerry signed the UN Arms Trade Treaty, “On behalf of President Obama and the United States of America.”

Now the battle moves to the United States Senate. Last March, 53 senators went on record in opposition to the treaty. If they mean what they say and stand firm, the administration will not have the two-thirds majority it needs to ratify the treaty. But that is a big “if,” and some senators can be sure to flip-flop unless they receive constant, overwhelming public pressure to hold fast.

    LOL- annnddddd here it is...darn I'm good!
    "Any peace agreement in the region has to assure that the border between Israel and Jordan... is always a tranquil and safe border," he said of the Jordan Valley. "That is an interest for us, I think for the Palestinians as well and certainly for Jordan."

    "Israel demands a long-term troop presence on the Jordan Valley border. Palestinians will not countenance any open-ended deployment and have called instead for an international force."

    Oh, my I'm a prophet...lol

    As I was reading the article, it occurred to me that as always politicians are terribly hypocritical...nothing new there, but as they speak of curtailing private citizens of owning certain weapons on one hand; they are willing and endorsing the ownership of weapons in a private army (in hopes of having a United Nations brigade...the smurfs) and close their eyes to such operations as was written by Reuters on May 16, 2011 of "Crown Prince Abu Dhabi hiring the founder of the private security firm Blackwater World wide to set up an 800 member battalion of foreign troops for the United Arab Emirates, The New York Times reported."
    The Times had obtained documents that showed the unit being formed by Erik Prince's new company, Reflex Responses, with $529 million from the UAE would be used to thwart internal revolt, conduct special operations and DEFEND OIL PIPELINES and skycraper from attacks.
    With the new gas pipline being opened up in the levathan with Houston Texas drilling partners and Israel....you know there is going to be some dirt flying and our on the ground combat battlions will be the babysitters of the oil fields while the private get to "interigate" the enemy and all security forces will be blamed. Meanwhile the guns in the private security sector are welcomed when they should be looked into which is what the article was alluding to "the US State department was examining the legality of an American-led Private army that is being established in the United Arab Emirates."

    January 6, 2014- AP news- "The first customer to sign up to buy gas from Israel’s giant Leviathan field is the Palestine Power Generation Company, which is developing an electric power plant near Jenin.
    The three Israeli partners in Leviathan – Avner, Delek Drilling and Ratio — told the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange on Sunday that PPGC had agreed to buy $1.2 billion worth of gas over a 20-year period that will begin when the field begins producing."

    Oh goodie we get to intervene when all hell breaks out, but it's ok because the pipelines will be secure from those nasty guns that private sector will be allowed to handle and use. Cover one eye people...Kali is coming.....Hypocrites!

    The Constitution is clear, even if Obama were legit and he is NOT!! He nor Congress NOR the Senate even through Treaties or Executive Orders still DO NOT possess the power or the Authority to USURP the Constitution, the Bill of Rights or our Sovereignty!!

    Also the UN has absolutely No Power or Authority over the United States or our Sovereignty!!

    Additionally both Biden and Obama have International Arrest Warrants out for their Immediate Arrest along with the BUSHES, Dick Cheney, the Clintons....

    Additionally, there is a Fail Safe built into the Bill of Rights and if Obama were to be convicted of atleast 3 American Grand Juries he can be arrested and Removed!! To date, Obama and Biden have been found GUILTY of Sedition Treason Conspiracy to Overthrow these United States by more than 6 American Grand Juries!!!

    This is Treachery and TREASON at its worst and totally outside the guidelines of the Constitution. We don't need to wait for it to be ratified to call it what it is, nor should we wait to get arrests and charges of TREASON filed. The signing of it, in itself is irrefutable proof of TREASON!

    Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder and John Kerry should be immediately arrested and charged with TREASON, and the names of any congressional member who votes to pass it or who fails to take action to stop its passage should be added to those charged with TREASON because they are traitors and have completely failed to carry out their sworn duty of supporting and protecting our Constitution from both foreign and domestic threats. Failure to carry out their duties is proof that they have lied to the American citizens before and after being elected.

    All of Obama' czars and appointees are obviously one world global government, aka the new world order puppets, put there to destroy us from within and should be arrested & charged with treason at the same time.
