While everyone is focused on Sen Ted Cruz's incredible performance on the Senate floor and Sen. McCain's absolute betrayal of conservatives, Sec of State John Kerry was signing away our country's sovereignty at the UN. Despite objections from many members of Congress, the Obama administration is taking another step toward putting our country under the thumb of the UN.
Here's how the media describes the treaty -
"It prohibits the transfer of conventional weapons if they violate arms embargoes or if they promote acts of genocide, crimes against humanity or war crimes, and if they could be used in attacks on civilians or civilian buildings such as schools and hospitals."
Does anyone else see the absolute hypocrisy in the Obama administration pushing this agenda?? Is this treaty going to be retroactive? If so, then the Obama administration will be in a world of hurt with the UN. Does arming the Syrian "rebels" (aka Al Qaeda) violate this provision? What about the whole "Fast and Furious" debacle? And let's not forget about the assassinations in Benghazi.
If you look up "hypocritical ass" in the dictionary today, you would see a picture of John Kerry. Case in point, this statement..,
"This is about keeping weapons out of the hands of terrorists and rogue actors," Kerry said after signing the Arms Trade Treaty in front of UN officials.
I guess he forgot that the US is doing exactly that right now in Syria. I kind of consider the drug cartels in Mexico "rogue actors". Wouldn't be the first time that Kerry had an episode of "selective memory".
Of course the groups pushing this UN treaty were just thrilled about the US laying down at the UN. This statement from Kathi Lynn Austin, exec director of Conflict Awareness Project (goal is to track illicit arms trafficking) is just priceless...
"The recent terrorist attack on a shopping mall in Nairobi is a terrible reminder that no citizen, tourist or visitor of a country is immune from the human tragedy that results from a worldwide, unregulated arms trade," she said
The terrorist attack in Nairobi has nothing to do with an unregulated arms trade, you imbecile! This is nothing more than another form of worldwide gun control. Let me repeat this slowly... guns don't kill people, people kill people. Terrorists don't care if their guns are legally obtained or not. If they don't have a gun available, they will use whatever means necessary to inflict human carnage and suffering. A UN treaty is about as effective as eating cereal with a fork in preventing terrorist attacks.
Frank Jannuzi, deputy executive director of Amnesty International USA wins dumbass of the day honors with this statement...
"The Obama administration is politically committed to ending the unscrupulous trade in deadly weapons used by dictators, war lords and criminal gangs to commit atrocities,"
Repeat after me, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, Syria. Fast and Furious, Benghazi, Syria. The stupidity - it burns,
John Kerry did his best to reassure us Americans who are concerned about ceding control of anything to the UN...
"Make no mistake, we would never think about supporting a treaty that is inconsistent with the rights of Americans, the rights of American citizens to be able to exercise their guaranteed rights under our constitution," he said.
BWAHAHA - I had to read this about 5 times just to be sure I wasn't reading The Onion. Since when has ANYONE in the Obama Administration cared about protecting our Constitutional rights. As Obama has demonstrated time and time again, anything that trashes the Constitution is on the priority list of this administration. And the media report this crap with a straight face???
Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty, Brian Terry and all the Mexican civilians killed with Fast and Furious guns were not available for comment...
