“Today begins the most important 26-day period for our Second Amendment freedoms in recent history.

That’s because today, representatives from many of the world’s socialist, tyrannical and dictatorial regimes will gather at United Nations headquarters in New York for a month-long meeting, in which they’ll put the finishing touches on an international Arms Trade Treaty that could seriously restrict your freedom to own, purchase and carry a firearm.

Specifically, the U.N. wants to implement international gun registration requirements, bans on commonly owned firearms, tracking and registration of ammunition purchases, and create a new U.N. gun control bureaucracy.

You might think that something so obviously menacing to one of our enumerated fundamental rights would receive a strong rebuke from our top government leaders. But you’d be wrong. This is President Barack Obama’s vision for America, and we’re expected to just go along with it.

In fact, a group of anti-gun members of the U.S. House of Representatives, led by U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.), went so far as to circulate a letter last week to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, in which they “strongly urge the United States to take a leadership role in pushing for a strong, verifiable Arms Trade Treaty.”

These House members insist that the treaty include “controls on a comprehensive list of weaponry, including small arms and light weapons,” as well as controls on ammunition. For good measure, they wrap their unconstitutional demands in the mantle of advancing “human rights” and preventing international violence.

Since when did it become fashionable for sitting members of Congress to lobby international thugs, tyrants and dictators against our own U.S. Constitution?

Rep. Grijalva should consider the plight of good people in countries like the Sudan, where it’s virtually impossible for an average citizen to legally own a firearm for self-defense.

He, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton should open their eyes to the unspeakable human rights atrocities that exist in their gun-ban utopia. They ought to see how far their gun-confiscation agenda resonates with hundreds of thousands of defenseless Sudanese men, women and children who live in constant fear of being beaten, raped, sold into slavery or murdered.

It’s easy for Congressmen Raul Grijalva, James McGovern, Bobby Rush, Dennis Kucinich and every other signer of this woefully ignorant letter to sit on high — surrounded by the secure walls of freedom built by our strong Second Amendment rights — and dictate to oppressed citizens in other parts of the world that their lives would be better if they only had less freedom than we do in the United States.

Thankfully, these clueless representatives don’t speak for the majority of us. The NRA has been warning Americans about this ticking time bomb at the U.N. for over 15 years. Now it’s zero hour. Wayne LaPierre and I will be at U.N. headquarters in New York this week, fighting tooth and nail to protect the same constitution that Raul Grijalva and his pals swore an oath to uphold and defend.

And I can promise you, we won’t stop fighting until our Second Amendment freedoms are safe from this international disgrace.

When are people going to wake up and realize that something big is expected to happen? Things are NOT okay. We are at a pivotal point in history. The world powers across the globe are making similar changes, accelerating the implementation of the same policies, embracing new treaties and reaffirming commitment to existing treaties and global initiatives. Across the world, governments are stressing preparedness, and taking extreme, seemingly unnecessary precautions and defense measures in the name of safety and the supposed increased risk for disasters(pdf).

Obama Orders “Sharp Increase” in Drone Murders, Enjoy Your Hope and Change, America.

Obama orders ‘sharp increase’ in drone strikes: Report – The Express Tribune.

aroundthesphere.wordpress.com

Nothing says “Hope and Change” like murdering defenseless children and other civilians with a non-human, unfeeling drone from the skies, and our dear leader wants to kill even more.  We’re losing, or have nearly lost, our value for human life.

A person remotely controlling the murdering UAVs far from the slaughter is bound to become desensitized; killing innocent people will become the norm. When will people realize that the government will not stop taking our rights or killing in the name of money unless we stop them NOW?

Probe US drone civilian casualties: United Nations 

It’s about time someone spoke out against this disgusting murder; too bad it is another corrupt group that  perpetrates the most heinous of human atrocities around the world.

We’re all flawed; we’re all difficult, ignorant, and selfish at times, but we are all human. None of us are worth more than anyone else. My life is no more valuable than that of an addict in the ghetto, or a hungry child in China, or an Afghani trying to defend his village from the foreign occupying forces that rape and unjustly kill innocent civilians. And my life is no less valuable than the flesh and bones of Obama, Angelina Jolie, or Bob Dylan.  If we forget this, we lose our humanity, and in turn, we lose; we lose everything, we lose at life.

Peace and love my brothers and sisters. Remember we’re all on the same team.  US vs THEM.

NOW IS THE TIME. THE TIME IS NOW.

Opposition to Law of the Sea Treaty heats up – The Hill’s Global Affairs

27 May

Opposition to Law of the Sea Treaty heats up – The Hill’s Global Affairs.

Body of Letter:

Dear Mr. Leader,

We understand that Chairman Kerry has renewed his efforts to pursue Senate ratification of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. We are writing to let you know that we believe this Convention reflects political, economic, and ideological assumptions which are inconsistent with American values and sovereignty.

By its current terms, the Law of the Sea Convention encompasses economic and technology interests in the deep sea, redistribution of wealth from developed to undeveloped nations, freedom of navigation in the deep sea and exclusive economic zones which may impact maritime security, and environmental regulation over virtually all sources of pollution.

To effect the treaty’s broad regime of governance, we are particularly concerned that United States sovereignty could be subjugated in many areas to a supranational government that is chartered by the United Nations under the 1982 Convention. Further, we are troubled that compulsory dispute resolution could pertain to public and private activities including law enforcement, maritime security, business operations, and nonmilitary activities performed aboard military vessels.

If this treaty comes to the floor, we will oppose its ratification.

Why The U.N. Arms Trade Treaty Is A Bad Idea

First, let me be honest.  I’m not a constitutional scholar, and I need to read the treaties more thoroughly.  (But I’m not a constitutional lawyer either,  so that’s a plus.)  People will argue it does not violate any constitutional rights directly, and that may be true, I need to look closer.  But that is not what I’m arguing.

Russia, U.S. to Hold Anti-terror Drills on U.S. Soil in May. No Big Deal.

Russia, U.S. to Hold Anti-Terror Drills on U.S. Soil in May

This could be very innocent.  America could simply be sharing its military expertise with its pal, Russia, but how often does America do something for others without gaining something in return?  What has prompted Russia to join the club of  foreign troops who have trained on US soil?   Are they still trying to sell us on terrorist drills, and what percentage of Americans are still buying it?  I’m curious to hear how people will downplay this, if it ever gets mentioned.  I can just see those opposed to the drill being accused of being redneck nationalists who need to get trendy, step into the global present, and embrace the training of foreign soldiers on our soil.

Regardless of how you feel about foreign soldiers in America, the very idea that we could see war in our country is frightening.  I think sometimes we forget that war doesn’t just destroy infrastructure, inflict debilitating injuries, cause mass deaths of soldiers and civilians, bring famine, disease,  and looting, but also brutal, widespread rape of women and children by soldiers and criminals.  It has occurred in every single war and the centuries old practice shows no signs of changing.  Rape is in fact  considered a crime of war.

Sexual Violence Against Women and Girls in War and Its Aftermath:  Realities, Responses, and Required Resource (pdf),                                             briefing paper for UNFPA

Maybe we should have a look back in history and see how the Soviet troops “helped” the women and girls they liberated in Germany during and after WWII:

Rape During the Occupation of Germany

“As Allied troops entered and occupied German territory during the later stages of World War II, mass rapes took place, both in connection to combat operations and during the subsequent occupation that was to last many years. Most published and most numerous are the rapes committed by Soviet servicemen, for which estimates range from tens of thousands to two million.

A book by Svetlana Aleksievich provides memories by Soviet military personnel about their experience in Germany. According to an officer,

“We were young, strong, and four years without women. So we tried to catch German women and … Ten men raped one girl. There were not enough women; the entire population ran from the Soviet Army. So we had to take young, twelve or thirteen year-old. If she cried, we put something into her mouth. We thought it was fun. Now I cannot understand how I did it. A boy from a good family… But that was me.”

A female telephone operator from the Soviet Army recalled that,

“When we occupied every town, we had first three days for looting and … [rapes]. That was unofficial of course. But after three days one could be court martialed for doing this. … I remember one raped German woman laying naked, with hand grenade between her legs. Now I feel shame, but I did not feel shame back then… Do you think it was easy to forgive [the Germans]? We hated to see their clean undamaged white houses. With roses. I wanted them to suffer. I wanted to see their tears. … Decades had to pass until I started feeling pity for them.”

Of course, U.S. troops were not innocent either.

In Taken by Force, J. Robert Lilly estimates the number of rapes committed by U.S. servicemen in Germany to be 11,040. As in the case of the American occupation of France after the D-Day invasion, many of the American rapes in Germany in 1945 were gang rapes committed by armed soldiers at gunpoint.

Although non-fraternization policies were instituted for the Americans in Germany, the phrase “copulation without conversation is not fraternization” was used as a motto by United States Army troops.  The journalist Osmar White, a war correspondent from Australia who served with the American troops during the war, wrote that

After the fighting moved on to German soil, there was a good deal of rape by combat troops and those immediately following them. The incidence varied between unit and unit according to the attitude of the commanding officer. In some cases offenders were identified, tried by court martial, and punished. The army legal branch was reticent, but admitted that for brutal or perverted sexual offences against German women, some soldiers had been shot – particularly if they happened to be Negroes. Yet I know for a fact that many women were raped by white Americans. No action was taken against the culprits. In one sector a report went round that a certain very distinguished army commander made the wisecrack, ‘Copulation without conversation does not constitute fraternisation.’

I’m very grateful that our government has been preparing for disaster, but the thought of Americans being okay with foreign troops on our soil seems like a joke, but perhaps I am still just a redneck nationalist not hip to the global jive.

I don’t like to make a habit out of using Infowars or other such sensationalist websites as a source, but this is organized, legitimate footage containing interviews with military personnel.   If this isn’t convincing, there is other, less in depth footage of these types of drills on youtube.

There was a book I loved as a kid that I cannot find because I don’t remember the exact title.  I was always sad when I had to return it to the library.  I would sing the words aloud, and I can still hear the innocent, hopeful tune.

“One world, one heart, one heart loving everyone.

One world, one love, one world loving everyone. ”

I write this with complete honesty, although I know it sounds dramatic, but after reading the article I heard new lyrics echoing in my head…

“One world, one war, one war killing everyone”
