Good news out of the U. N… for now

Seems that the talks to reach a consensus for the Arms Trade Treaty have ended without agreement.

From the United Nations web site

Describing it as a “setback,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has expressed his disappointment over the failure by United Nations Member States to reach agreement on a treaty that would regulate the conventional arms trade.“I am disappointed that the Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) concluded its four-week-long session without agreement on a treaty text that would have set common standards to regulate the international trade in conventional arms,” Mr. Ban said.

The Arms Trade Treaty, or ATT, is the bill still in the draft phase that has many 2nd Amendment advocates in the states up in arms. It has been a point of unconfirmed rumor that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Obama had promised a signature. The rumor mill also states that a restriction or ban on firearms trade or ownership, as well as an international registration database would in effect nullify our 2nd Amendment rights.

Personally, I will not even pretend to know just what kind of impact this would have on this nation. But there was a landmark court case decided in 1957 that our Constitution supersedes all international treaties ratified by the Senate. This was the Reid v. Covert case.

In the text of the U.N. Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy, in the section II titled Measures to prevent and combat terrorism, item #5 deals with the U.N.’s plan with regard to the small arms trade…

5. To strengthen coordination and cooperation among States in combating crimes that might be connected with terrorism, including drug trafficking in all its aspects, illicit arms trade, in particular of small arms and light weapons, including man-portable air defence systems , money laundering and smuggling of nuclear, chemical, biological, radiological and other potentially deadly materials.

The eagle and the rat…

I am eluding to a poster that hung on my uncles wall when I was a kid. The eagle is swooping down on a rat, and the rat is just sitting there on his butt, waiting, while defiantly giving the eagle ‘the bird’. We the people would be the eagle. The U.N. and current administration would be the rat.

Isoroku Yamamoto was the commander-in-chief of the Imperial Japanese Nave during WWII. He has been credited with the statement, “Japan would never invade the United States. We would find a rifle behind every blade of grass.” Though the statement has never been officially confirmed, it would most definitely be considered a spark of wisdom.

Weather or not the statement was authentic, the U.N., along with some allies for the cause in our nation’s leadership have decided to buy a lawn mower.

Forbes.com tells of the tune of gun control that’s marching on from the U.N. Seems the usual suspects in the Capitol are working very hard to implement the Global Small Arms Treaty this year to fulfill a pledge from Hillary Clinton. This would possibly be known as the current administration’s last great act of defiance. The rat giving the eagle the bird.

According to Infowars.com, Soros and his zombie brigade is funding the heck out of this. (I know. I must be a nut to cite the Alex Jones Gang to make a point, but even the most grounded newsie has to admit that not all conspiracies are theory.)

Nationally, the administration has to be worried about the recent uptick in gun stocks as well as the mad rush in firearm/ammo sales that started in November of ’08… right after the elections. But on the globalist scale, the banditos at the U.N. have made no effort in hiding the fact that they want to kill our sovereignty and mount it’s head on the general assembly’s wall.

To be honest, with the track record of executive orders and sneaky legislation creations, I must say that I’m not rightly sure exactly how the gun lobby can beat this. Just keep the FBI statistics in mind regarding gun sales .vs. violent crime, and remember the old adage… ‘When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.

Deep thoughts on this our Independence Day

I had the occasion today to have a conversation with a bright young man, still in the process of putting on the pants of adulthood. The conversation revolved around our shared belief of where this country is headed and what we thought should be done to secure our ability to exist in the changing political and ideological landscape.

We shared the observation that this country is no longer suffering the frog-in-a-pot syndrome, but rather has flashed into the snowballing effect, and the snowball is bright flashing neon. We discussed the mutual desire to be able to support ourselves and our families as the structure of the economy continues to morph.

At one point in the conversation, the young man commented that he firmly believed that our current president could not be reelected. He felt that there was no way for the current administration to win. I thought about this for a moment, then I shared my doubts regarding that thought with him. Here is that doubt…

From a biblical perspective, the Lord sets up kings and removes them according to His will. Leaders, whether good, bad, or somewhere in between all serve to fulfill His purpose. This is just the framework for my thought. Now the meat.

Two weeks ago, we, as a nation, waited breathlessly for the supreme court to rule on whether or not the Health Care Mandate was constitutional. Between the signals put out by the court in their examination of the law and the talking heads of the media, this law was done for. No need to imagine our surprise when the law was upheld by the court. But the most surprising thing was that, according to the press, CJ Roberts changed his position from against to for the law at the last minute, providing the swing vote required to uphold. It happened in the blink of an eye. Nobody in their right mind saw this coming. Even our president was preparing a requiem for the death of the bill. But none was necessary, and now we have the first major socialist mandate in American history as well as the largest tax hike in the history of the world.

Now apply this sort of a timeline to the election cycle. The talking heads are telling us that Obama is sucking wind behind Romney, or rather, anybody but himself. He is hard up for funds. His base for the most part is bailing on him. The SEIU will not be providing any financing this time around. House Democrats are jumping ship. And as for the right? Supposedly, the Supreme Court ruling ‘”…awakened a sleeping giant.” This is all encouraging, but what happens on election day?

Returning to the biblical perspective, I believe that the moral and spiritual position of a nation is gauged by two thing; the voice of the people and the actions of the leadership. Considering how far off of the REAL moral compass and spiritual foundation this nation has slid, it stands to reason that our current leadership is exactly what we asked for and precisely what we deserve. I believe that the only thing that could possibly secure the election of a new president and revitalize the growth of this great nation is the entire nation falling on it’s face as one people, and asking God for his forgiveness and mercy. Otherwise, we can believe in whatever outcome we want up to the day of the cast vote, but the outcome may be a mirror image of the decision regarding the Health Care Mandate… completely unexpected and unforeseen.

It is based on this philosophy that I believe that the current administration may very well walk us into the next four years. After all, the hearts of so many in this country have become callous and hateful. The nation is wounded, and this wound is such a deep division of flesh that it may never heal. Even if it does, the healing would most likely prove septic and never complete.

As went Rome, so go we…
