Congress has provided full initial funding for Obama’s U.N. global warming treaty, breaking a promise to the American people that the funding would not be provided unless the treaty were first ratified. The provision was slipped into the omnibus spending bill at the last minute.
Throughout November, Representatives and Senators in the GOP promised the American people that Obama’s global warming treaty was a non-starter. They vowed that unless the treaty first received a vote in the Senate – and was ratified by a two-thirds vote, per the Constitution – the “Paris Climate Accord” would not receive one thin dime of American taxpayer dollars.
Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY) stated, “Without Senate approval, there will be no money – period.”
There has been no vote. Obama signed the global warming treaty but nothing has been sent to Congress to review. Yet here we are with $500 million in initial seed money for the U.N. Green Climate Fund. That expenditure will increase to $3 billion by next year and $100 billion by 2020. Within 15 years when the treaty truly ramps up, the United States will in fact be paying trillions of dollars for our “climate sins” and the funds will then be doled out to Third World Islamic countries in the Middle East and Africa. Communist China is also listed as a “poor country” which will receive funding from the American taxpayer from the “Climate Justice Tribunal” established by the treaty.
This is similar to the unconstitutional “adoption” of the Iran nuclear deal, but in this case the Obama regime did not even bother to send the agreement to Congress – and they are about to fund it anyway!
During a hearing with the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Secretary of State John Kerry was asked why the Iran treaty was not submitted to the Senate to be dealt with as a treaty (which it was).
Kerry replied, “I spent quite a few years ago trying to get a lot of treaties through the United States Senate. And frankly, it’s become physically impossible. That’s why.”
This explains why Obama has refused to send the global warming treaty to Congress. Funding it without ratification is a complete betrayal of America and of the constitutional process!
Deuteronomy 15:6 describes a blessing bestowed on a nation obedient to the Lord: “For the Lord your God will bless you just as he promised you; you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow; you shall reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over you.”
Barack Obama wants to give the sovereignty of the USA away to the Muslim-controlled U.N. and Congress is about to borrow money from China or Saudi Arabia to pay for it!
Once again: The U.N. global warming treaty might look like peanuts in the omnibus bill ($500 million) but the expectation is that the amount will grow to somewhere (no one knows how how) in the TRILLIONS within 15 years. All to “fight” global warming. The truth is that this is a wealth redistribution scheme to take money from the American people and give it away to Third World Islamic dictatorships.
