SEE: U.S., China ratify Paris climate agreement

***”The United States has joined China to formally ratify the Paris agreement to curb climate-warming emissions, the world’s two biggest economies said on Saturday, which could help put the pact into force before the end of the year.

U.S. President Barack Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping submitted their plan to join the agreement to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who is in China to witness the announcement.”***

Note the words “formally ratify”. What is wrong with the headline and story is, it is a big fat LIE, panhandled by our globalist loving lying press. The fact is, our Constitution commands that our President “shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur”. Obama is once again attempting to issue an executive order to ratify the Paris deal, which, under the terms of our Constitution requires consent of the United States Senate before it is “formally” ratified. Let us look at the facts.

The limited power granted to the President in our Constitution regarding deals [treaties] with foreign governments is stated as follows:

The President “… shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur…”

So, what is meant by the word “treaty” as the word was used and understood by our founders, and requires a two thirds approval vote by our Senate to have the force of law?

In Federalist No. 64 Jay defines a treaty as a “bargain” . He writes:

”These gentlemen would do well to reflect that a treaty is only another name for a bargain, and that it would be impossible to find a nation who would make any bargain with us, which should be binding on them ABSOLUTELY, but on us only so long and so far as we may think proper to be bound by it.”

And in Federalist No. 75 Hamilton tells us with reference to a treaty, *** “Its objects are CONTRACTS with foreign nations, which have the force of law…”*** So, we begin to learn that the word treaty as found in our Constitution is synonymous with a contract or bargain.

In addition to Hamilton’s use of the word “CONTRACTS” to describe a “treaty”, he goes on to explain why the president was not granted an arbitrary power to make “CONTRACTS with foreign nations, which have the force of law” unless approved by a two thirds vote. Hamilton points out the president, if he had such power:

“might sometimes be under temptations to sacrifice his duty to his interest, which it would require superlative virtue to withstand. An avaricious man might be tempted to betray the interests of the state to the acquisition of wealth. An ambitious man might make his own aggrandizement, by the aid of a foreign power, the price of his treachery to his constituents. The history of human conduct does not warrant that exalted opinion of human virtue which would make it wise in a nation to commit interests of so delicate and momentous a kind, as those which concern its intercourse with the rest of the world, to the sole disposal of a magistrate created and circumstanced as would be a President of the United States.”

So, as it turns out, our founders intentionally commanded by our Constitution, that any deals cooked up by the president with a foreign power would not have “the force of law” unless approved by a two thirds vote in the Senate.

It is also important to note how much our founders feared an omnipotent president, and this is established when they refused giving the President Line-item veto power! Benjamin Franklin, on June 4th of the Constitutional Convention reminds the delegates how they suffered under that power and why it should not be given to the president. Franklin says:

***’”The negative of the governor was constantly made use of to extort money. No good law whatever could be passed without a private bargain with him. An increase of salary or some donation, was always made a condition; till at last, it became the regular practice to have orders in his favor on the treasury presented along with the bills to be signed, so that he might actually receive the former before he should sign the latter. When the Indians were scalping the Western people, and notice of it arrived, the concurrence of the governor in the means of self-defense could not be got, until it was agreed that the people were to fight for the security of his property, whilst he was to have no share of the burdens of taxation.’’ ***

After reviewing the above documentation it becomes crystal clear that the U.S. and China have not “formally” ratified the Paris climate agreement which the headline asserts.

In another forum where I post, someone [jaded57] wrote: “Obama has had complete disdain for the Constitution for most of his adult life. I bet he was salivating to get on board with this; now China will continue to belch as much pollution as they like, and we regress to living in igloos with tallow-fat candles - if we’re allowed to use animal products.”

That comment summarized Obama’s entire presidency!

As I have written many times…when the history is written, there will be questions abound as to why Congress, the GOP did not stop the beginnings of our dictatorship and the loss of our Constitution, the fault for the late great America will not rest on the shoulders of the liberals or Obama or even Hitlery, it will rest upon the shoulders of the American people and its reprensentives in Congress to have stopped and impeached Obama and to have put Hitlery in prison.

If China were to abide by the climate agreement, it would have to shut down at least two-thirds of its coal fired power plants.

The bottom line is, this “agreement” is another “green energy” money laundering operation designed to fatten the fortunes of those who hold political power in our federal government.

BET on John! There is a MASSIVE problem with Climate Change, its ALL based UPON TAXING you and me and controlling our lives and hidden in there is the GLOBAL TAX, yes that right the GLOBAL TAX goes to the UN, who has been looking for a way to develop an income stream since the day it was dreamed up.

Just like we cannot grow our way out of the oil/coal energy paradigm by planting corn; we cannot fix (assuming it needs fixing) the climate issue by simply taxing people! Its nothing but a ploy to tax us to the point of (HOPEFULLY) rebellion.

When the solution to the problem is more taxes then you can bet its gonna be EPIC FAIL!

You need to add the Democrat members of Congress to your blame list in general, and Harry Reid in particular. When I studied political science in undergraduate school (a couple of courses) in the late 1960s one thing that the members of Congress from both parties recognized was the need to maintain the power of their branch of government. Members of congress differed over party line policies, but they did not give away the power of the House and Senate. All of that changed with Harry Reid. He has made the made the need to get 60 votes in the Senate as a requirement to do anything … except to pass Obama Care. Reid reduced the power of the Senate on purpose, and has made it stick because party discipline among the Democrats is iron clad. They vote as a block on just about everything.

The net result of this is that that the President and the Bureaucracy have far more power than Congress. The traditional idea that there are three co-equal branches of government is fiction. Since Obama found out that he can use executive orders with very few restrictions, it’s gotten much worst. Some clowns, like that Bob Corker of Tennessee, set it so that Obama’s Iran deal could be passed with no Congressional opposition. Corker set a high bar of 66 senate votes to even put a protest on Obama’s desk. He knew it would fail, but he came back to us with the fiction that he and GOP leadership tired to do something. They knew they were doing nothing. That whole thing really made me very angry and hurt my support and confidence in the GOP.

What has happened in this country is that we have given Blacks a free ticket to do as they please. I am not sure when it began, but IMO I think the Rodney King riots which did over $1Billion worth of damage. Since then its gotten worse and worse with no intervention at all and finally with the election of Obama who lacked even the creds to get a job bussing tables at Mc D’s and then when he arrived he has done as he pleases with sycophants such as Reid who also belongs in jail.

I think the very fact that the police are holding back due to the “Ferguson effect” is telling us that if you don’t toe the Black line we will riot and you will do nothing to stop us or we will kill you.

Harkens back to the days of ‘BIg Al’, stopping by your store to sell you an insurance policy. You say No, don’t it, about an hour later a car drives by and tosses in a stick of dynamite. Suddenly everyone wants to buy insurance.

We are not in good shape in America in 2016 and if Hitlery gets in it will get worse!
