Building the Crecendo…

And out of the Middle East, Iran continues to build it’s “case” for the impending, unavoidable collision course with Israel…

News from The Associated Press.

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.

What is becoming of our nation?

Doing my morning news scan this morning, I noted several headlines on the Drudge Report alone that I think would make the founding fathers turn in their grave enough to generate power for at least half of the nation.

First, Conservative justice Scalia believes the founding fathers left wiggle room in the Constitution for gun regulation…

Second, does anybody beside myself wonder how the heck our country has been allowed to reach a point where DHS feels the need to gear up for the coming conventions, elections, and inauguration?   Note in the article that there are designated areas called ‘Free Speech Zones’. Something entirely wrong with this, in my arrogant opinion. And by the way, note that this story , along with the equipment procurement request was plucked from a Russian news outlet…

Infowars marries this story with the evident need expressed by Janet Incompitano for 30,000 drones to blanket American skies to “…be used for public safety.”

Where do things go from here?

This makes me very happy.

Because you know this is all about me, right?
