Did you know this? During September of 2013, John Kerry “on behalf of President Obama and the United States of America”, said (lied?) at the United Nations in New York,
“This treaty will not diminish anyone’s freedom. In fact, the treaty recognizes the freedom of both individuals and states to obtain, possess, and use arms for legitimate purposes. Make no mistake, we would never think about supporting a treaty that is inconsistent with the rights of Americans … to be able to exercise their guaranteed rights under our constitution.”
But here’s where he misled you about the UN Arms Trade Treaty…
The New American reports that the UN Arms Trade Treaty was written in secret by the Obama/Hillary Clinton State Department, along with Russia, China, France and Britain.
Not exactly a lineup of champions of liberty.
What does the treaty actually say?
Article 2 defines the conventional arms covered, which include battle tanks, artillery systems, combat aircraft, attack helicopters, warships, missiles — and “small arms and light weapons.”
Article 3 of the treaty places UN prohibitions on “ammunition/munitions fired, launched or delivered by the conventional arms (including small arms) covered under Article 2.”
Article 4 puts all “parts and components” of weapons (including small arms) within the scheme.
Several places in the treaty text, including Article 5, require all countries to “establish and maintain a national control system, including a national control list.” Moreover, it declares, “Each State Party is encouraged to apply the provisions of this Treaty to the broadest range of conventional arms.”
Article 5, Section 4 says each State Party “shall provide its national control list to the Secretariat, which shall make it available to other States Parties.”
The way I read this is it means our federal government will provide the guns and ammo registration list to the UN, which will provide it to Russia, China, Cuba — any and every State Party that wants it.
If Secretary Kerry assures us that this treaty will not diminish anyone’s freedom, then why do the articles within the treaty say otherwise?
This is more erosion of United States sovereignty while freedoms of Americans are being relinquished to other ‘state players’ of the United Nations to establish more ‘global’ control.
(Freedom OutPost) – We were told that Barack Obama would more than likely sign the United Nations Small Arms Treaty in August, during Congress’ recess. That failed to materialize. However, here we are near the end of September and word came out yesterday that Secretary of State John Kerry will be placing his signature to the treaty on Wednesday.
American officials say Secretary of State John Kerry will sign a landmark treaty regulating the multibillion-dollar global arms trade during the annual United Nations General Assembly meeting this week.
The officials said Kerry will sign the Arms Trade Treaty on Wednesday, initiating an uncertain ratification process in the U.S. Senate. Some lawmakers have expressed strong opposition to the United States becoming a party to the treaty. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to be identified as the source of information about Kerry’s plans.
The U.S. is the world’s largest arms dealer and its accession is seen as critical to the treaty’s success, although many of the world’s other top arms exporters and importers have not signed the document.
Freedom Outpost’s Lorri Anderson also produced a document, which many believe is authentic, that could very well be a disarmament plan for America by the United Nations.
As a result of fear that this treaty could open the US gun market to international regulation, CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gotlieb wrote:
The uncertainty begins in the discussion of small arms. Where will the regulations on our small arms start, and where will they stop? They are even trying to include ammunition regulations in the Arms Trade Treaty! Will the United Nations try to impose international licensing requirements, an international registry, or international?
The last negotiations for an Arms Trade Treaty took place in July 2012, just four months before the Presidential election. Obama did not want to take a big stance for global gun control just months before his re-election but now he has made it clear he is for total gun control. He also told voters he would not be re-visiting negotiations for an Arms Trade treaty but here we are.
Since his re-election it has become clearer than ever what is at the top of his agenda; taking our guns away! The Obama Administration has been exploiting tragedies since the election to push gun control at the city, state, federal, and now GLOBAL level.
Our Senate took a stance before the Presidential election when 51 of them wrote Obama a letter saying they would not support an Arms Trade Treaty. We must let our entire U.S. Senate know we do not support international gun control. They must not ratify this international treaty.
Kerry’s signature doesn’t actually put the treaty into effect. It must also be ratified by 2/3 majority vote in the United States Senate. However, remember that back in March the Senate voted 53-46 to uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. The same Senate went on to defeat the tyrannical gun control legislation of the Obama administration and the Democrats.
The dangerous part of Kerry signing the treaty is that it will lie dormant in committee until there is a majority that will ratify it, or a future president, in essence, “unsigns” the treaty.
Additionally, it only takes ¾ majority vote of member nations to amend the treaty. This means that once it is ratified other nations could determine how it could be amended, and that would also affect the United States.
Currently, the treaty does not seem to regulate gun ownership in the US. However, it could immediately affect the availability and cost of foreign made guns and ammo if it is ratified.
The treat also requires that 50 member nations sign and ratify it for it to take effect.
UPDATE: John Kerry has signed the treaty. This just in from Fox News:
Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday signed a controversial U.N. treaty on arms regulation, riling U.S. lawmakers who vow the Senate will not ratify the agreement.
As he signed the document, Kerry called the treaty a “significant step” in addressing illegal gun sales, while claiming it would also protect gun rights.
“This is about keeping weapons out of the hands of terrorists and rogue actors. This is about reducing the risk of international transfers of conventional arms that will be used to carry out the world’s worst crimes. This is about keeping Americans safe and keeping America strong,” he said. “This treaty will not diminish anyone’s freedom. In fact, the treaty recognizes the freedom of both individuals and states to obtain, possess, and use arms for legitimate purposes.”
(OffTheGridNews) – There have been multiple civilian sightings of strange planes landing at American Air Force bases, all carrying UN troops and/or having UN markings (or none). My husband, a Vietnam vet, has been back and forth to Overton-Brooks VA Medical Hospital three times a week this month. Barksdale Air Force Base, one of the most secure Strategic Air Command (SAC) bases in the nation, has had unusual C-130s or C-136s fly into Barksdale AFB and land at all hours. The interstate runs in front of the side and front of the base and is clearly visible with no restraints. (Barksdale is where President George W. Bush landed on 9/11, it is such a safe, secure, and well-guarded installation.) These flights have been reported by other citizens and several of the military men who work inside the base have reported that the UN troops are given US military clothing and name tags. When our servicemen question this, the soldiers are told they did NOT see what they just saw. Base operations refused to confirm or deny or discuss these sightings.
Lately, rumors and reports regarding the presence of foreign troops in the US working with our armed forces have been hitting public awareness. Originally government sources denied these reports, but now official reports are confirming what eye witnesses had been reporting.
The question is why? It appears that foreign troops are working with US troops, practicing on urban warfare, civil unrest, and civil disturbance scenarios. In Colorado, rumors of Russian troops practicing to deal with terrorist raids and martial law scenarios have been proven correct by our own US armed forces. Peterson AFB in Colorado is another base being used.
Located in Germany is the Marshall Center, named after General George C. Marshall, who was quite the UN/NWO devotee. At this present time, the Department of Defense is conducting classes in counterterrorism. Of course, the definition of “terrorism” belongs to new world order advocates. According to the definition used by the NWO, a terrorist is anyone who opposes a takeover of their nation. That would make all NWO resistors and/or anyone who disagrees with the new world order plans potential terrorists.
Are You A Terrorist By Their Definition?
Do you believe in our national sovereignty and national Constitution? Do you believe in religious liberty and freedom of speech? Do you believe in the right to own guns and bear arms? Are you prepared to stand up and fight for your freedom if an order of martial law is imposed?
Then by UN/NWO definition, you are a terrorist!
The problem with these foreign troops being trained to intervene on American soil in SHTF scenarios which might occur here is that they have no loyalty to our Constitution, they have no loyalty to the inherent rights that have always been ours as American citizens, and they have no basis for restraint in any action they might perceive as necessary, regardless of our laws. They have no constitutional right to interfere in the internal events of our country.
NATO and the UN have the same goal, mission, and function: to subvert the sovereignty of the United States and the rest of the world, turning us all into a fascist worldwide state. Our government officials have proven time and again here lately that they are not to be trusted. Congress is nothing more than a rubber stamp for what the administration wants, not the representative body of the citizenry as it should be.
What catastrophic event is this administration preparing to implement now in order to seize the control they so desperately want?
Sending Your Kids to Public School is Becoming a Living Hell
Parents in America are waking up to more unconstitutional public school policy that now says if you want to participate in your children’s education or visit, you must first submit to an extensive background check without a search warrant. Over 3500 Texas public schools and over 7000 nationwide have implemented policy that forces parents to submit to the school system snooping around with the help of law enforcement without a warrant to search your personal records including arrest records, Administration Office records, Dept of Corrections, Superior Court records, Municipal Court, County Court, District Court, and Common Pleas. What was once a place to send your children to learn, grow, and be creative is now becoming what many parents are viewing as being “a living hell.”
In an article by Infowars, “This check is carried out by a company called Raptor, which summarizes their services as: Thousands of schools and community facilities across the country use Raptor’s V-soft visitor management and screening technology to help protect children from sex offenders, domestic dispute offenders and other trespassers. V-soft works in conjunction with law enforcement to add an extra layer of security and keep our kids safe.
While the mission of protecting children from sex offenders has a broad appeal, domestic dispute charges include a broad range of situations including issues as minor as loud arguments among siblings. A definition of domestic dispute from USLegal.com describes the term as including non-crimes:
A domestic dispute is generally any quarrel, which may or may not include violence, within a family or between members of the same household. Definitions are governed by local laws, which vary, and may also cover including any child or an adult or fully emancipated minor who is a spouse, former spouse, cohabitant, former cohabitant or person with whom a suspect has had a child or has or has had a dating or engagement relationship. It may or may not include criminal behavior. Local laws should be consulted for specific requirements in your area.
According to Raptor, their background check includes arrest records, which doesn’t indicate conviction or acquittal indicating that the notion of being innocent until proven guilty does not apply here.”
As more school systems implement prison type policies using “safety” as a reason to harass and snoop through parents lives, parents all over America are growing weary of the policies the public school system have imposed on parents. As more people demand more security and regulation in the school systems, the trade-off is resulting in more governmental and law enforcement control over our lives including our own children.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, president of Iran, spoke at the United Nations on Thursday expressing his opinion that the US is behind the 9/11 attacks in New York causing a dramatic outburst by the Americans, British, and many European delegations to walk out acting as if this was the first they heard about these claims while using Ahmadinejad as a scapegoat. This year, as another post 9/11 arrived, the world was awakened when Architects & Engineers for 911 Truth held a press conference and mock debate at the National Press Club in Washington DC while hand-delivering a petition to Congress Members that has over 1250 professional Architects & Engineers alarmed at the astounding hard evidence that all three WTC skyscrapers on September 11, 2001, in NYC were destroyed by explosive controlled demolition. Hundred of thousands of citizens took part in peaceful protests nationwide to seek the truth this passing of September 11, 2010.
As Ahmadinejad delivered his speech at the UN, he started his speech claiming love and justice as he wished mankind prosperity and for man to spread knowledge and truth while refraining from egoism and dishonesty. He also spoke of how the Western man has been lost and reduced by the materialistic world and is lost from human nature and truth. He spoke of how the destructive struggle for survival and domination have corrupted the Ego and gave way to enslavement and domination by a few Western States. He claims that 10’s of millions of people are taken by this domination prevailing and that the slave masters orchestrated the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center and Building 7 to put fear into the world. He claims that this event was a ploy to put military action in Iraq & Afghanistan. “It was carried out by a terrorist group and American officials participated and knew about the attacks while mapping out a rational route to take against them by launching a massive war that has murdered hundreds of thousands of innocent people,” the Iranian president explains. He goes on to say that there was not a proper investigation of 9/11 and the evil people behind the dominant attacks and that there is a massive cover-up to suppress the truth through the Zionism Regime.
These strong statements caused a dramatic reaction from the US, Britain, and many European delegates as they marched out of the meeting in disgust over the accusations while having total memory loss for what has been happening at home as millions of American citizens are waking up to the evidence surfacing and demanding an independent investigation. With a mainstream blackout occurring on the 9/11 issues arising, many Americans are left wondering why this dramatic walk-out happened when in fact Ahmadinejad was not the first to make these “US to blame” accusations and having total disregard for the citizens seeking answers to this truth.
