UN Arms Trade Treaty Targets Our Freedom (Video)

Written by 

On September 25, 2013, Secretary of State John Kerry journeyed to the United Nations headquarters in New York City to sign the UN Arms Trade Treaty. He said he was doing so “on behalf of President Obama and the United States of America.”

Secretary Kerry stated that he wanted to be clear both about what this treaty is, but also about what it isn’t. “This is about keeping weapons out of the hands of terrorists and rogue actors,” he insisted. “This is about reducing the risk of international transfers of conventional arms that will be used to carry out the world’s worst crimes. This is about keeping Americans safe and keeping America strong. And this is about promoting international peace and global security.”

Hoping to alleviate concerns, Kerry pledged: “This treaty will not diminish anyone’s freedom. In fact, the treaty recognizes the freedom of both individuals and states to obtain, possess, and use arms for legitimate purposes. Make no mistake, we would never think about supporting a treaty that is inconsistent with the rights of Americans ... to be able to exercise their guaranteed rights under our constitution.”

The UN Arms Trade Treaty was written in secret by the Obama/Hillary Clinton State Department, along with Russia, China, France and Britain. Not exactly a lineup of champions of liberty. What does it actually say?

Article 2 defines the conventional arms covered, which include battle tanks, 
artillery systems, combat aircraft, 
attack helicopters, warships, missiles — and “small arms and light weapons.”

Article 3 of the treaty places UN prohibitions on “ammunition/munitions fired, launched or delivered by the conventional arms covered under Article 2.”

Article 4 puts all “parts and components” of weapons within the scheme.

Several places in the treaty text, including Article 5, require all countries to “establish and maintain a national control system, including a national control list.” Moreover, it declares, “Each State Party is encouraged to apply the provisions of this Treaty to the broadest range of conventional arms.”

Article 5, Section 4 says each State Party “shall provide its national control list to the Secretariat, which shall make it available to other States Parties.” Which means our federal government will provide the guns and ammo registration list to the UN, which will provide it to Russia, China, Cuba — any and every State Party that wants it.

If Secretary Kerry assures us that this treaty will not diminish anyone’s freedom, then why do the articles within the treaty say otherwise?

But to grasp the full danger of the treaty one must realize that it would operate within a larger context of UN arms agreements, programs and “norms.”

    The UN has absolutely NO POWER OR CONTROL over these UNITED STATES... We are a Sovereign Nation Obama Kerry even if Obama were Legit, and he is NOT, they still under the Constitution DO NOT possess the power or the Uthority to USURP the Constitution, the Bill of Rights or our Sovereignty even through Treaties and Executive orders....they simply do not possess the power to do so and to even attempt to sign our Sovereignty over to the UN or the EU or top anyone such as Kerry signng the Treaty in the 1st place is an OPEN ACT OF HIGH TREASON!!!

    Obama is a known proven Criminal NWO FRAUD USURPER



    Article 1 Section 7 Clause 2 is clear

    Obama CANNOT BE IMPEACHED....you CANNOT IMPEACH someone who is NOT legally President but you
    can physically arrest him and all his Criminal Associates......

    Article 1 Section 7 Clause 2

    No laws of Congress are valid
    “Congress can pass no law while a usurper pretends to occupy “the Office of President.” The Constitution provides that “[e]very Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States” (Article I, Section 7, Clause 2). Not to a usurper posturing as “the President of the United States,” but to the true and rightful President. If no such true and rightful President occupies the White House, no “Bill” will or can, “before it become a Law, be presented to [him].” If no “Bill” is so presented, no “Bill” will or can become a “Law.” And any purported “Law” that the usurper “approve[s]” and “sign[s],” or that Congress passes over the usurper’s “Objections,” will be a nullity. Thus, if Obama deceitfully “enters office” as an usurper, Congress will be rendered effectively impotent for as long as it acquiesces in his pretenses as “President.””
    And
    Obama Could not be Removed Except by Force
    As a USURPER posturing as “the President,” Congress cannot even impeach Obama because, not being the actual President, he cannot be “removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors” (see Article II, Section 4). In that case, some other public officials would have to arrest him—with physical force, if he would not go along quietly—in order to prevent him from continuing his imposture. Obviously, this could possibly lead to armed conflicts within the General Government itself, or among the States and the people. BUT IT NEEDS TO HAPPEN IF WE ARE TO SAVE HER! America.

    Bear in mind, that as an imposter Commander–in-Chief of the Armed Forces, “he will be entitled to no obedience whatsoever from anyone in those Armed forces and Law Enforcment. Indeed, for officers or men to follow any of his purported “orders” including law enforcement will constitute a serious breach of military discipline—and in extreme circumstances perhaps even “war crimes.” In addition, no one in any civilian agency in the Executive Branch of the General Government will be required to put into effect any of Obama’s purported “proclamations,” “executive orders,” or “directives” (Viera, J.).
