There is one tool of this modern age that we can argue is the greatest aid to the spread of liberty and freedom. This one great tool is in danger.
This is a tool that tyrants would like to see dismantled. With freedom and liberty riding on the defense led by the Obama Regime, we should all be worried.
What is this great tool and why is it in danger?
The tool is the Internet.
As the world has become plugged in, the traditional barriers to freedom and liberty are broken. The Internet allows ideas and communications to occur that tyrants to not want happening. There is a reason why North Korea does not let its citizens have access to the Internet.
There is a reason why China has a massive Internet filter that some call the “Great Firewall of China” to keep people from researching dangerous topics like freedom and liberty.
There is a reason why when there is dissent and trouble, the Internet is one of the first things endangered tyrants cut.
There are a lot of nations that want to see the freedom and liberty the Internet helps to create eliminated.
In Dubai, the International Telecommunication Union is meeting. What many nations, including Russia, China, Islamic nations and many African nations want to do is to extend the jurisdiction of the ITU to include the Internet.
Isn’t that a great idea? Please tell me just one thing the UN has done well? Perhaps the UN takeover of the Internet will make it easier for the Blue Helmets to rape the civilians in areas they are supposed to be protecting.
The Internet is originally a United States invention and is loosely governed by ICANN. ICANN is a non-profit organization that assigns IP addresses. In other words, they make sure you can find the website you are looking for.
The tyranny bloc of nations is also demanding that national rights be extended over the Internet so that any nation can block the Internet and would have greater control over what is allowed on the Internet.
Unfortunately for the Internet, the ITU decision may come down to a majority vote. It is sad to say there are more nations that support tyranny in the world than support liberty.
Unfortunately, to fight this power grab by the United Nations, we are relying on the Obama Regime.
The Obama Regime thinks that America should be more subservient to the United Nations.
The Internet is one of the greatest tools for freedom and liberty that has been created since the printing press.
If the Tyranny bloc of nations succeeds in trying to expand the jurisdiction of the ITU to the Internet, America should walk out of the conference, and consider not only leaving the ITU but also leaving the United Nations.
The future of the economy and freedom is online.
We cannot allow the decision making for this great tool of commerce and liberty to be left to savages who do not even have indoor plumbing and who believe the answer to anyone who disagrees with them is an AK-47.
Technically, the 1st Amendment (Bill of Rights) didn't become part of the US Constitution until 1791.
Also, as I hate to point out, it is in the Constitution that Treaties made by the US Government CAN circumvent our enumerated and unenumerated (ref. 9th Amendment) Rights.
US Constitution, Article VI, paragraph 2: "This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding." (This was in the original Constitution that was ratified in 1787, and has not been changed by any amendment to the Constitution since.)
Now that is some scary stuff right there, considering that the Senate has the potential (if they have enough votes) to surrender our Constitution and our enclosed rights to the UN (or any other foreign entity), and we'd not be able to do a damned thing about it....except rise up in armed revolt. Theoritically, our Senators would not do this, but I have learned a long time ago, not to say "never" about anything concerning what humans are capable of doing. We know that the Communist (Democrat) Party would sell us (and our Constitution) out in a heart beat the first chance they get, and we're starting to see that some in the Republican Party might, as well.
Our U.S. Constitution was intended as a "CONTRACT" between the States as to the powers the U.S. Government would have and the limitations of those powers. This contract has already been breached in so many ways, because We the People have failed to hold our elected officials to it. This is due, in large part, to ignorance of this great document by WE the PEOPLE, or indifference to it. THAT HAS TO CHANGE!
YES, Jerry Morris, YES ! But, what you have FAILED to point out, is, our GREAT Constitution does NOT allow ANY AGENCY OTHER than the United States CONGRESS to pass ANY laws ! That " authority " is possessed by CONGRESS, ONLY, via our FOUNDING FATHERS ! . . . . GASP, . . . .
SO, . . . . good folks, the members of the " United Nations," as they are " so - called," are NOT ELECTED OFFICIALS, which you & I can VOTE IN, or VOTE OUT ! ( A government WITHOUT representation ? . . . . GASP, . . . . ). So, Jerry Morris, you're RIGHT ! We, the " voting public," have ALLOWED our " Congressmen " ( and, the term " Congressmen " includes SENATORS, . . . . ) to GIVE this " constitutional " authority TO the #$%#@ United Nations ! SO, . . . . good folks, please, please, PLEASE find out, FOR CERTAIN, whether or not YOUR senators & representatives HAVE, or HAVE NOT EVER " voted " to " allow " this United Nations to " make decisions " in THIS country, a SOVEREIGN nation ! And, if ANY ONE of your " elected " officials HAS, INDEED, done such a TRAITOROUS ACT, then VOTE THEIR BACK - SIDES OUT of office, thus stripping them of THEIR " sovereignty " ! Folks, INFORM yourselves, & then, let's SHOW Congress ( both the House of Representatives, AND the $#%^ Senate ) that WE MEAN BUSINESS !
"...and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding."
That is what is known as the "Supremacy Clause" and it applies to states that have a law/laws that conflict with any U.S. law or treaty adopted by the Federal government. It simply means that the Federal law/treaty trumps state law, nothing more. It DOES NOT pertain to the Supreme Court, which has the power to strike down any treaty as "unconstitutional".
And don't forget that the Senate must consent to any treaty by a two-thirds vote before the President can ratify (sign) it.
All that being said, particularly with the makeup of the current SCOTUS and its (turncoat) Chief Justice, dam near anything is possible. The only insurance, that the current SCOTUS would not betray America, would be the certainty - on their part - that such action would guarantee a severe response from the people.
We have savages in the White House and in the Senate, Hellbent on giving away all our liberties to the useless, and frankly dangerous, UN. Freedom is being attacked on all fronts. We must defend it. May the wings of liberty never lose a feather.
There are savages in the dark shadows of the Masonic Lodge too, caleb
There is some interesting history here....and is appropriate while discussing a third party formation.
The Republican party was largely formed from the failure of the Wig party
The Wig party formed from the failed Federalist party...and the Anti-Masonic Party
I had never heard of the Anti-Masons before examining third party formations, rise to power and failure.
An interesting subject, really.
YES, Phillip Cowan, TRUE ! So, to Caleb White, the ALEE TEMPLE ( the " Masons " ) originated in MOROCCO, a MUSLIM country, by, yes, the #$%$ MUSLIMS ! And, everyone who JOINS the " Alee Temple " swears allegiance to ALLAH, the MUSLIM god !
YES, Caleb White, so, . . . . SO, . . . . the FIRST thing we do, is to GET OUT OF THE UNITED NATIONS ! Let's don't even GIVE THEM THE TIME - OF - DAY ! WE are sovereign ; we ARE sovereign !
" Every heart beats true for the RED, WHITE & BLUE, . . . . " !
OUR GOV'T officials are SAVAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Americans will be required to demonstrate the same courage that our ancestors displayed. We have taken our freedom for granted. Now, it is threatened. A lot of people are content to "whistle it down the wind." Anyone who suggests that we may be facing a coming crisis is positioned as "an alarmist or a reactionary."
We need to have the media on all fronts leak this to create a uproar as even the progressives don't want that unless they are brain dead. I was hoping that Hurricane Sandy would hit the UN and destroy it. No such luck. It hit civilians instead. Not to worry, FEMA is taking care of them by suppressing all of their freedoms.
