All Governments are Created Equal?

Posted by Jeff Id on October 16, 2009

Now as I’m sick of the politics as I can be.  So tired that I don’t want to think about  it but our misunderstood leader is about to sign a treaty which will create global communist wealth redistribution from ‘developed’ countries to ‘undeveloped’.  Please read the proposal before you comment.

The proposed treaty as of September 15 –

http://wattsupwiththat.files.wordpress.com/2009/10/un-fccc-copenhagen-2009.pdf

Now I’ve written before about developed and undeveloped nations.  The concept of developed and undeveloped is a deception of course, meant to impress you that all countries and govenments are created equal.  This bill creates the very global government with the power of taxation, redistribution and enforcement that we’ve all feared would happen.  I’ve been mocked for even assuming that the goal MIGHT be to form a one world government but here it is – right in front of your faces.  Progressive liberalism, communism, socialism all in their distorted non-functional forms looking you right in the eye.

Under this proposal, non-elected executive officials given the power to regulate and redistribute economic output from developed to non-developed nations.  From free people to communist countries, from the free to the Muslim woman hating dictatorships.   From free to North Korea, not small money mind you, real money with real impact in an effort to equalize all output.  Not through improvements of disgustingly bad performance of  Eurosocialism, China communism or Muslim oppression but rather through the limitation of output of free people.  The stealing of money from free people.  This money is not the government’s money, its yours.   But no longer.  Those who support this hideous mutilation of old style liberalism are to blame for the lack of realization of what’s going on right outside our window.  Those pretty flowing words from Obama’s mouth contain the edges of swords.  The very things America has stood for are being destroyed, given away freely.  Health care, climate, nuclear power, energy, homes for those who have no money, extended unemployment leave are keys to orchestrate the collapse.

This new government is not formed by the people or for the people with a fundamental document to prevent the very things millions have died to protect.  Instead it is formed on the basis of unelected people chosen from a network of elites with the power to suppress successful economies in favor of brutal, evil, immoral dictatorships.

My god people wake up, this is not reasonable.  There is nothing reasonable about it.  It’s not business as usual pick up the kids from football practice.  This is Anti-American anti-freedom cold war style tactics to destroy an economy and your freedom right along with it.  What’s more, our leaders are complicit.

Here are some quotes:

Measurable, reportable and verifiable financing, technology transfer and compensation must be provided by developed countries to address the full costs of adaptation in developing countries, supported by appropriate institutional arrangements under the Conference of the Parties.

And this one which confirms what I’ve written about the motivation of these people.

Scientific evidence shows that the global costs of mitigation and adaptation to the adverse effects of climate change will soar if mitigation efforts are timid, fragmented and restricted.

Here it is being defined on a per capita basis.  Meaning free countries with successful economic systems that provide for the rest of the world should be taxed for their success and their wealth redistributed to repressive regimes.  My bold:

The difference between the assigned amounts of Annex I Parties and their actual GHG emissions shall be quantified [as an increase in their emissions debt/accumulated per capita emissions/use beyond their equitable allocation of the global atmospheric resources] [and shall provide the basis of] [as an input for the consideration of] fulfillment by Annex I Parties of their commitments to provide financing, technology and compensation to developing countries for mitigating and adapting to climate change.

Here it is again:

In the light of a shared vision based on historic responsibility/emissions, debt/per-capita emissions convergence/an equitable allocation of a shared atmospheric resource,

Shared vision of historic responsibility – do you get that wording?   Per -capita emissions – completely ignoring that China and America export to the world not just ourselves.

Annex I Parties shall provide new and additional financial resources to meet the full costs incurred by developing country Parties [in complying with their obligations under Article 12, paragraph 1, and the full incremental costs of implementing measures that are covered by Article 4, paragraph 1] [, particularly the most vulnerable countries including LDCs and SIDs, of meeting their commitments, towards the full, effective and sustained implementation of the Convention]. They shall also provide new and additional funding to cover the full incremental costs incurred by developing countries in implementing nationally appropriate mitigation actions undertaken in the context of sustainable development.

All this framework is to be controlled by the COP under the following groups:

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:

(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.

(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, including insurance, rehabilitation and compensatory components, (c) 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.

(c) The Convention’s facilitative mechanism will include: (a) work programmes for adaptation and mitigation; (b) a long-term REDD process; (c) 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.

The COP is all parties that  sign up.  So we’ll have a few free nations who’s climate tax is determined by the huge number of climate oppressed nations.  We will have essentially no vote in the funds taken from us.  Gee I wonder if the enlightened government of Pakistan would agree to take some money.  Or how about the wonderful developing nation of Venezuela.  Do you think we should send money to the wonderful developing nation of Zimbabwe.  I wonder how they will vote at Copenhagen.

In addition to the helping out the poor hard working communist countries, we also agree to this:

Annex I Parties collectively, whether or not Parties to the Kyoto Protocol, must reduce their emissions by at least 45 per cent below 1990 levels by 2020 and by more than 95 per cent below their 1990 levels by 2050.

Now it would take an insane power hungry man to sign up for this program if you’re the one giving the money away.  Good thing we’ve got Obama at the helm.

I realize that most liberals don’t think of Obama as a communist but this is clearly right out of the playbook for communist style wealth redistribution under an unelected one world government – which will be closely associated with the UN.  I wonder if people will think differently about the extreme leftists controlling this once great country or will the real news channels like CNN, CBS, NBC,MSNBC, PBS all be able to sell successfully to the inner city minorities as a pile of happy roses.

    I wouldn’t even believe this if I hadn’t read it myself.

  2. In interesting times, interesting means to solve interesting matters. French chose the guillotine.

    Fortunately it takes a 2/3 vote of the Senate to confirm a treaty signed by the president. Don’t think there are 67 loonies in the senate, 61 or 62 maybe but not 67.

  4. Jor throm said

    Holy shit, this can not be real. A government to oversee our government, able to redistribute the wealth of our nation based on data that they determine and a value they assign. Once you become a member the only way to leave is a vote from the other members. This signs away all of our sovereignty and keeps us a paying prisoner. This is a world welfare paid for by us. They have even written in an enforcement authority. This is a world government, not by the people, not for the people. This can not be real!!!!!!!!

    All I can say after reading Anthony’s post is that “things are much worse than we thought”, to borrow the over-used phrase from the AGW crowd.

  6. Guy Fardell said

    Can only agree 100%!
    Being a spelling nerd, I noticed a few errors that I assume was due to your state of mind writing the beginning of this. Please correct it, because it’s necessary that good wording is accompanied by good spelling.

    So…:

    China communism or mulsim oppressioin (muslim oppression)
    hideouos (hideous)
    captia (capita)
    Packistan, intended? Pakistan
    Venesuela (Venezuela)

    Continue your good work, please!

  7. Jeff Id said

    I fixed the hideouos spellizations. Thx.

  8. Guy Fardell said

    Thank you!

    Sorry for being fussy:
    You forgot Venezuela.

    Best Regards

    In theory, a treaty signed by the President and ratified by the Senate (2/3) has the full force of law. It does not override the Constiution, as that is “the supreme law of the land, notwithstanding any district or juristriction.” In theory. As if our government has paid more than lip service to the Constitution for the past 75 years …

    If Copenhagen doesn’t do it, the EPA will.

    Rereading Atlas Shrugged. Scary.

    Jeff, this is not PL. I am liberal and adamantly oppose this scheme. I agree with Churchill that one does not get the best government, but rather the government one deserves with representative democracy. That is the system we have. However, there are real problems with this scheme, and some of them have been addressed. One is that by our constitution, revenue bills have to start in the House. This scheme definetly has problems. A similar treaty, the UN itself was funded. The US is in arrears more than any other country last time I checked. Simply because the transfer of funds has to be legislated, and you seldom can find enough Americans satisified with the UN to pay more than about 1 year per decade. Especially since the attitude that the US must pay for everything, even hurt feelings of dictator scumbags, is nothing new, and results in refusal to pay. I think there is less to worry about than a first reading would give. Obama and the House can try to give up this sovereignty, but it will only take one plantiff and five Supreme Court Justices to stop it. Not good odds. Most justices have a very literal mind about such legalities. This can be seen by “activist” judges using the “common good” and “interstate commerce” clauses to be as broad as such general statements are.

    Of course, some might consider them not PL (activist) judges, rather simply verbally cognizant.😉

  11. Jeff Id said

    John,

    I thought you might feel that way. These PL’s are not yours, just like Bush was not mine.

    As far as the UN, my hope is that we never pay again. It’s only a manipulation scheme for the most wealthy anyway and it needs to be disbanded. Fat chance for that.

    Don’t have to read it.

    All I need to know is that Obama’s administration was the source. If you will do background research on virtually all of his appointments and Czars you will find they are from Radical Leftist Beliefs as taught from Berzerkeley to the grandest Ivy Leagues in recent years!!!

    These people BELIEVE in things like Liberation Theology, Redistribution of Wealth, the EVIL of the White Male Culture… all the canards that I thought would die with the USSR and Communism.

    Our media is virtually all from similar backgrounds having been taught by these types in Universities and Colleges around the US. They have done Butkus in the background research that would have made it obvious that the Obama team had nothing less in mind when elected.

    Unfortunately for us, McCarthy was right and we now have virtually all our institutions subverted by people who were BORN AND RAISED AMURKIN!!! Check out David Horowitz’s web site. A man who was raised by American Communist parents and came to his senses in the 70’s!!

    He and his collaborators have developed “Discover the Networks”. A list of the groups which are connected through Leftist ideals and beliefs. It makes interesting reading to see how interconnected the Left Wing is from George Soros to the Tides Foundation to Acorn to the Heinz Foundation to Labor Unions to CPUSA…

    If you have a few minutes to spare, read E.M. Smith’s response on WUWT. Pretty much where I stand, but he states it so much more eloquently than I could.

    http://www.betterworldcampaign.org/issues/funding/us-funding-for-the-un-an-overview.html

    UPDATE: Each year, Congress is responsible for approving and allocating the payments requested by the President for U.S. assessed contributions to the United Nations regular and peacekeeping budgets. Currently, the U.S. is assessed 22% of the UN regular budget and 26% for UN peacekeeping operations.

    For many years, due to Administration and Congressional underfunding, the U.S. fell well behind in its treaty-obligated payments to the UN. But in June 2009, Congress voted for and the President signed legislation that erases all the debts that had been building over the last decade.

    To ensure that the U.S. remains in good financial standing and honors its obligations at the UN, the United States must continue to pay its dues to the UN in full and on time. In June 2009, the President requested that Congress pay the full amount the U.S. will owe the UN in his Fiscal Year 2010 budget request.

    When we are building up debt and running the printing presses like there is no tomorrow, nothing is too large (or small and unprincipled) to fund. Just come up with an emergency and start spending like hell.

    Obviously the US paying its UN debt will surely change how the world views us and peace and happiness will break out over the entire world. If that was not an emergency then I do not know what is.

    Hi Jeff

    Have you had the chance to read the article I sent you? It is well referenced and shows exactly how this all started.

  17. Jeff Id said

    #16, It’s an excellent article. I’ll run it soon.

  18. j ferguson said

    Is all this based on Moncton predicting that in the future Obama will sign THAT document? Predicting?? Where are all my skeptic cohorts when we need them?

    Somehow, I thought skepticism was a way of life not something abandoned when you think you’ve read something you agree with.

    There’s plenty out there to worry about without getting in a dither over a very very bright guy signing this stupid (IMNTHO) agreement.

  19. Jeff Id said

    I hope you’re right J

  20. Ryan O said

    Well, on the off chance that our government does actually decide to sign this stupid thing, I just want to let you guys know that I will personally secede from the Union.

  21. Tonyb said

    Ryan O

    Do I remember reading that if a state secedes from the Union it reverts to the British Crown? Welcome Home!

  22. j ferguson said

    Guys,
    The test of something like this is “Does it call for politicians to surrender power?”

    If it does, the chance of it happening is zero. This thing is hooey. Makes me wonder about Moncton, too.

  23. John F. Pittman said

    If it is a treaty, the Senate has to approve it. If the Dems try to pass it as a law, it only takes one Senator, I can think of several, willing to contest it. At that point it takes only 5 Supreme Court Justices to rule the law unconstitutional. I think Monckton, and we, would be better served with exploring what the EPA can do, and how reguations can be thwarted by Congress, and how likely with the Dems in control of House, Senate, and Presidency.

  24. Jeff Id said

    Thanks John, there have been a lot of comments on WUWT, here and by email to that effect. It gives me hope.

  25. j ferguson said

    John Pittman said: “I think Monckton, and we, would be better served with exploring what the EPA can do, and how reguations can be thwarted by Congress, and how likely with the Dems in control of House, Senate, and President.”

    The threat is in the subtle stuff, the way the regulations are written, the way they are enforced.

    I still have nightmares about figuring out how to comply with EPA regulation of hydro-carbon emissions on industrial construction projects in the late ’70s. BACT and BRACT, Gaaaak.

    This is the area the public doesn’t see and is where they’ll get us if that is what they mean to do.

  26. Squidly said

    Yes, on the Huckabee show on FoxNews right now, they have Dr. John Christy and some libtard from the Obama administration, discussing AGW and the Cap’n Trade bill.

    Finally! Getting some real exposure on these issues!

    RAMP IT UP PEOPLE!!!!

    They will NEVER take me alive!

  27. Squidly said

    Hehehe … Christy is MOPPING the floor with this gal. WOW!!!

  28. j ferguson said

    It might be that this is a dormant thread, but…..

    I’ve thought some more about the surrender of sovereignty and having thought about it, realized it’s not the simple process I suggested earlier. Sovereignty is surrendered when products must be designed and manufactured to a standard invented by countryless bureaucrats in Belgium -the EC.

    These regulations can protect purchasers and users from possibly dangerous products, but can also favor the products of one country vs another as well as impose (IMPOSE, FORCE) methods and requirements on local processes which have nothing to do with any potential for local problems – mandating that the cheese be shrink-wrapped in French markets.

    I fear the effects of runaway regulation far more than the possibility that a very bright, constitutional scholar, will agree to the flagrant document under discussion, much less, that the senate would ratify it.

    What makes runaway regulation so insidious is that unless it comes to wrapping cheese, not many people are aware of it.
