Lord Monckton Says: Stop Obama From Relinquishing U.S. Sovereignty in Copenhagen; A New World Order?

First, I would like to thank all my wonderful blogging friends who brought this to my attention.
I am inviting everyone to visit their excellent blogs.

The Minnesota Free Market Institute hosted an event at Bethel University in St. Paul on Wednesday evening. Keynote speaker Lord Christopher Monckton, former science adviser to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, gave a scathing and lengthy presentation, complete with detailed charts, graphs, facts, and figures which culminated in the utter decimation of both the pop culture concept of global warming and the credible threat of any significant anthropomorphic climate change.
A detailed summary of Monckton’s presentation will be available here once compiled. However, a segment of his remarks justify immediate publication. If credible, the concern Monckton speaks to may well prove the single most important issue facing the American nation, bigger than health care, bigger than cap and trade, and worth every citizen’s focused attention.
Here were Monckton’s closing remarks, as dictated from my audio recording:

At [the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in] Copenhagen, this December, weeks away, a treaty will be signed. Your president will sign it. Most of the third world countries will sign it, because they think they’re going to get money out of it. Most of the left-wing regime from the European Union will rubber stamp it. Virtually nobody won’t sign it.

I read that treaty. And what it says is this, that a world government is going to be created. The word “government” actually appears as the first of three purposes of the new entity. The second purpose is the transfer of wealth from the countries of the West to third world countries, in satisfication of what is called, coyly, “climate debt” – because we’ve been burning CO2 and they haven’t. We’ve been screwing up the climate and they haven’t. And the third purpose of this new entity, this government, is enforcement.

How many of you think that the word “election” or “democracy” or “vote” or “ballot” occurs anywhere in the 200 pages of that treaty? Quite right, it doesn’t appear once. So, at last, the communists who piled out of the Berlin Wall and into the environmental movement, who took over Greenpeace so that my friends who funded it left within a year, because [the communists] captured it – Now the apotheosis as at hand. They are about to impose a communist world government on the world. You have a president who has very strong sympathies with that point of view. He’s going to sign it. He’ll sign anything. He’s a Nobel Peace Prize [winner]; of course he’ll sign it.
[laughter]
And the trouble is this; if that treaty is signed, if your Constitution says that it takes precedence over your Constitution (sic), and you can’t resign from that treaty unless you get agreement from all the other state parties – And because you’ll be the biggest paying country, they’re not going to let you out of it.

So, thank you, America. You were the beacon of freedom to the world. It is a privilege merely to stand on this soil of freedom while it is still free. But, in the next few weeks, unless you stop it, your president will sign your freedom, your democracy, and your humanity away forever. And neither you nor any subsequent government you may elect will have any power whatsoever to take it back. That is how serious it is. I’ve read the treaty. I’ve seen this stuff about [world] government and climate debt and enforcement. They are going to do this to you whether you like it or not.

But I think it is here, here in your great nation, which I so love and I so admire – it is here that perhaps, at this eleventh hour, at the fifty-ninth minute and fifty-ninth second, you will rise up and you will stop your president from signing that dreadful treaty, that purposeless treaty. For there is no problem with climate and, even if there were, an economic treaty does nothing to [help] it.
So I end by saying to you the words that Winston Churchill addressed to your president in the darkest hour before the dawn of freedom in the Second World War. He quoted from your great poet Longfellow:
Sail on, O Ship of State!Sail on, O Union, strong and great!Humanity with all its fears,With all the hopes of future years,Is hanging breathless on thy fate!

Lord Monckton received a standing ovation and took a series of questions from members of the audience. Among those questions were these relevent to the forthcoming Copenhagen treaty:

Question: The current administration and the Democratic majority in Congress has shown little regard for the will of the people. They’re trying to pass a serious government agenda, and serious taxation and burdens on future generations. And there seems to be little to stop them. How do you propose we stop Obama from doing this, because I see no way to stop him from signing anything in Copenhagen. I believe that’s his agenda and he'll do it .

I don’t minimize the difficulty. But on this subject – I don’t really do politics, because it’s not right. In the end, your politics is for you. The correct procedure is for you to get onto your representatives, both in the US Senate where the bill has yet to go through (you can try and stop that) and in [the House], and get them to demand their right of audience (which they all have) with the president and tell him about this treaty. There are many very powerful people in this room, wealthy people, influential people. Get onto the media, tell them about this treaty. If they go to www.wattsupwiththat.com, they will find (if they look carefully enough) a copy of that treaty, because I arranged for it to be posted there not so long ago. Let them read it, and let the press tell the people that their democracy is about to be taken away for no good purpose, at least [with] no scientific basis [in reference to climate change]. Tell the press to say this. Tell the press to say that, even if there is a problem [with climate change], you don’t want your democracy taken away. It really is as simple as that.

[Update: this section on a question from an attendee to the presentation has been removed from this WUWT article because even though Monckton clearly refuted it, it is turning into a debate over presidential eligibility that I don't want at WUWT. If you want to see it and discuss it. Do it at the original blog entry Fightin' Words - Anthony]

Regardless of whether global warming is taking place or caused to any degree by human activity, we do not want a global government empowered to tax Americans without elected representation or anything analogous to constitutional protections. The Founding Fathers would roll over in their graves if they knew their progeny allowed a foreign power such authority, effectively undoing their every effort in an act of Anti-American Revolution. If that is our imminent course, we need to put all else on hold and focus on stopping it. If American sovereignty is ceded, all other debate is irrelevant.

Edited to add @ 8:31 am:
Skimming through the treaty, I came across verification of Monckton’s assessment of the new entity’s purpose:

38. The scheme for the new institutional arrangement under the Convention will be based on three basic pillars: government; facilitative mechanism; and financial mechanism, and the basic organization of which will include the following:

World Government (heading added)
a) The government will be ruled by the COP with the support of a new subsidiary body on adaptation, and of an Executive Board responsible for the management of the new funds and the related facilitative processes and bodies. The current Convention secretariat will operate as such, as appropriate.
To Redistribute Wealth (heading added)
b) The Convention’s financial mechanism will include a multilateral climate change fund including five windows: (a) an Adaptation window, (b) a Compensation window, to address loss and damage from climate change impacts [read: the "climate debt" Monckton refers to], including insurance, rehabilitation and compensatory components, © a Technology window; (d) a Mitigation window; and (e) a REDD window, to support a multi-phases process for positive forest incentives relating to REDD actions.
With Enforcement Authority (heading added)
c) The Convention’s facilitative mechanism will include: (a) work programmes for adaptation and mitigation; (b) a long-term REDD process; © a short-term technology action plan; (d) an expert group on adaptation established by the subsidiary body on adaptation, and expert groups on mitigation, technologies and on monitoring, reporting and verification; and (e) an international registry for the monitoring, reporting and verification of compliance of emission reduction commitments, and the transfer of technical and financial resources from developed countries to developing countries. The secretariat will provide technical and administrative support, including a new centre for information exchange [read; enforcement].

Teresa:
Thanks for re-posting this important story and for the h/t. We need to keep this going viral. I hope Glenn Beck tackles it soon.

Isn't Denmark the tiny country where the little Dutch boy stuck his finger in the dike thereby saving the city. The Dutch have always been afraid of rising waters and nothing raises this spector more than the false issue of "man-made global warming", so what better place to drive this issue home and suck in American political leaders into what is becoming the new cult of "global warming". Certainly U.S. sovereinty is at stake in what is a re-distribution scheme with large special interest pushing the issue for economic gain at the expense of the American taxpayers.

Like I said, I think at Goomba's, there are so many heads on this hydra, visible, nearly invisible, domestic, foreign, and international, that it is difficult to know where even to start fighting.

The "medical care" reform, this treaty, some czars, and a slew of other things we see. How many things have gone unseen? What is happening in all those departments (which can and do write laws without congressional oversight).

Teresa said...

Conservative Lady,
Yes. This is a very important story, and most definitely needs to go viral. Glad to spread the word.

Teresa said...

Ron,
We definitely need to stop this re-distrubution scheme. "global warming" is being used as a means to an end.

Teresa said...

Doom,
You are correct. I think this is being done on purpose, keeping us busy with so many twists and turns. All we can do is our best to fight back, and give it a valiant effort to stop this tyranny from occurring.

Amusing Bunni said...

Great post, Teresa, I'm going to do it myself this week. Once Glenn gets a hold of it, which I am sure he will do....it's just too outrageous and horrible....then we'll really see some viral action. If obugger signs this...which he will if he's not stopped, we're screwed.

Oh, crap, why is all the news bad news these days. This is why I like cute kitten video's...hee hee.
Maybe I can go to sleep happy if the Bears win, but it would take a HUGE miracle. Have a wonderful nite, what's left of it.

This is a big story, however, there is the Constitutional issue of treaties needing to be ratified by the states. If Obama and Congress try to do this, I can't see the states going along. I can see a civil war breaking out over this looking down the road. Think about this. Our military is sworn to 1st and foremost uphold the Constitution. Obama is reaching so far past the Constitution that he may cross a line, and there is one, where the military has to deal with him. I have a busy day coming up with several stories to post, but I am shelving one to give yours a repost.

Andrew33 said...

Oh and in response to Bunni's comments about Beck, he is already working on this but does not do stories until he can connect all the dots. That is why he is able to go into such extreme subject matter once relegated to the tinfoil hat crowd and he makes since and people believe him.

Andrew33 said...

I gave you that repost at KOOK's along with some artwork to spice it up a tad.

Teresa said...

Amusing Bunni,
For some reason these libs are enamoured with the dark side. They like the bad and the ugly. As for us, we like to stick with the good. I am sure Beck will be on this as soon as Andrew said, he connects all the dots. Ya know, he likes sticking it to the Obama administration. Have a great day!

Teresa said...

Andrew33,
I can definitely see a civil war breaking out over this. The fact that this treaty must be ratified is a good thing. WE must bring this to the attention of every Senator and Congressman, so that they can go through the proper channels in order to STOP this treaty from being signed. Thanks for reposting this information. It is of the utmost importance that this information goes viral. Have a great day!

Amusing Bunni said...
