Obama to Bypass Congress and Pretend to “Ratify” UN Climate Deal

Amid an illegal plot to “ratify” a United Nations treaty on “climate change” without the constitutionally required advice and consent of the U.S. Senate, Obama is behaving more and more like a tinpot dictator looting kingobamafingerconstitution-300x204what remains of a collapsing banana republic. As part of the effort to defend the unconstitutional scheme to bypass Congress and “ratify” the UN climate regime, however, the White House and its globalist allies are twisting themselves into legalistic and rhetorical pretzels — and setting up the UN scheme for failure. The formal announcement ahead of the upcoming Communist Chinese-led G20 confirms what The New American first reported over two years ago.

The UN, Obama, and Beijing are all hoping to get the agreement “ratified” before or during the G20 meeting in early September, according to news reports. Unlike the U.S. Congress, which Obama knows will not approve his dangerous UN “climate” regime, even the rubber-stamp legislature serving the brutal communist dictatorship enslaving mainland China is getting an opportunity to weigh in on ratifying the so-called “Paris Agreement.” Beijing’s propaganda organs are making a big show out of the fact that the “Standing Committee” of the “National People’s Congress” is deliberating on whether to ratify the controversial UN deal.

By contrast, Obama plans to pretend to ratify it all by himself. Fortunately for Americans, though, by bypassing the proper ratification process, Obama is all-but ensuring that the “climate” treaty, negotiated in Paris last year, will eventually go down in flames. In fact, federal law now officially prohibits any U.S. funding for the UN climate bureaucracy, whether Obama pretends to ratify the UN climate deal or not. The strange turn of events vis-à-vis Obama, China, and the UN follows bizarre comments by former UN “Climate” Czarina Christiana Figueres, who blasted the U.S. political system but said the murderous Chinese regime was doing it right when it comes to battling alleged man-made global warming.

Imperial President ObamaThe blatantly fraudulent “legal argument” being advanced by Obama and the White House is that the UN Paris Agreement is actually an “executive agreement.” Therefore, they claim, Obama can ratify it with nothing more than his pen. In the real world, of course, the UN, the French government that oversaw the negotiations, and practically every government on earth have declared the Paris Agreement to be a “binding international treaty.” Indeed, the document itself makes that clear, with the word “shall” appearing in the text more than 100 times.

Speaking at a White House press conference, though, a “senior adviser” to Obama, Brian Deese, tried to have it both ways. “The president will use his authority that has been used in dozens of executive agreements in the past to join and formally deposit our instrument of acceptance, and therefore put our country as a party to the Paris Agreement,” said Deese, who was in Communist China last week plotting with the regime’s minions on how to impose the UN “climate” scheme on Americans and all of humanity. Obama previously inked a pseudo-treaty on the issue with Chinese dictator Xi Jinping (shown with Obama above), setting the stage for the Paris Agreement.

Settled-Science-600-LAIf the UN’s climate deal was truly a so-called “executive agreement,” whatever that means, the agreement would presumably only bind the executive branch of the federal government, not the United States. Yet, the White House is claiming that this executive agreement will “put our country as a party to” the radical UN treaty. Of course, in the real world, only the Constitution and the other branches of the federal government can legitimately bind the executive branchmuch less the entire country. In fact, aside from defending the Constitution, Obama’s job description is to faithfully execute the laws, not invent them alongside the UN and China’s murderous tyrants.

On top of that, even real treaties that are properly ratified by two thirds of U.S. senators present cannot grant any new powers to the federal government. The Paris Agreement, and Obama’s “Intended Nationally Determined Contributions” (INDC) pledges under it, go far beyond the powers delegated to the federal government under the U.S. Constitution. That means the treaty would be illegitimate even if the U.S. Senate were to ratify it, according to the Constitution’s authors and even the U.S. Supreme Court. Without Senate approval, it is basically a glorified but meaningless piece of paper that does not even provide a fig leaf of cover for Obama’s illegal usurpations. 

Obama’s senior adviser, though, apparently thinks Americans are stupid. “That’s a process that is quite well-established in our existing legal system and in the context of international agreements and international arrangements,” Deese told reporters without citing the source of this alleged “well-established process” of dictatorial rule. “There is a category of them that are treaties that require advice and consent from the Senate, but there’s a broad category of executive agreements where the executive can enter into those agreements without that advice and consent.”Leftist Propagandist

He did not say what provision of the Constitution supposedly created a “broad category of executive agreements” that Obama could concoct and impose unilaterally — almost certainly because there is none. It was not clear whether Deese actually believed his own outlandish propaganda, either, but he apparently did say it with a straight face. He also said that Obama and the communist dictator ruling over China had announced earlier this year that they “would seek to formally join the Paris Agreement in 2016,” as if that made it legitimate.

Of course, U.S. senators have already pointed out that Obama’s promises on the issue are a fraud and Solid-Foundation-600-wLogohave no meaning. U.S. Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla), for example, who serves as the chairman of the powerful U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee and regularly ridicules the man-made global-warming theory as a “hoax,” ridiculed Obama and his “empty promises.” “The problem with international climate change agreements is that they ignore basic economic and political realities and therefore are doomed to failure,” Inhofe said. “When the hype over the signing fades, the reality will set in that the policies President Obama is promising will not last.”

But while the Republican-controlled Congress has put up tepid and in some cases even phony resistance to Obama’s wild plot to ratify a treaty without Senate approval, foreign powers and officials have been egging him on. First, it was French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius of the Socialist Party, which oversaw the UN negotiations in Paris that produced the totalitarian UN “climate regime.” Speaking to African government and dictatorship delegations in Germany, Fabius said “we know the politics in the United States.” “Whether we like it or not, if it comes to the [U.S.] Congress, they will refuse” to approve the UN “climate” scheme, he continued. “We must find a formula which is valuable for everybody and valuable for the U.S. without going to the Congress.”Picture4

After that, UN boss Ban Ki Moon, who now bombastically refers to the UN as the “Parliament of Humanity,” expressed confidence that Obama would ignore Congress and the Constitution in his fake ratification procedure. “I do appreciate President Obama’s strong commitment,” said the UN chief, whose tenure has been plagued by all manner of scandals ranging from child-raping UN troops running wild to the ongoing and systematic persecution of whistleblowers who expose UN corruption and crime. “He knew that, with all this opposition of the Republican Party’s stance, he may not be able to have all this legally — through a legal process. But he also has executive power. He will do whatever he can under his executive power.”Leftist Propagandist

Playing along with Obama’s fraud, the UN and the regime enslaving mainland China are all pretending that if Obama and rubber-stamp Chinese legislators “ratify” the UN deal, it will enter into force and be binding on everyone. They claim that once 55 governments or dictatorships representing 55 percent of human CO2 emissions ratify the scheme, it is all over. “Together, the U.S. and China represent just under 40 percent of global emissions,” said Deese, Obama’s adviser. “So the act of our two countries [sic] joining and when that happens will help move us closer to that goal.” As of now, less than two dozen governments and dictators representing about 1 percent of all man-made gas-of-life (CO2) emissions have signed up.

Still, Obama’s delusions notwithstanding, the Paris deal can and likely will be stopped either by Congress, the courts, or the next president. All the GOP Congress has to do is refuse to fund it. The courts could just strike it down. And a future president could simply tear it up. Indeed, Trump has already pledged to kill the UN “climate” regime upon taking office. “We’re going to cancel the Paris climate agreement, and stop — unbelievable — and stop all payments of the United States tax dollars to UN global-warming programs,” he explained, sending increasingly marginalized climate alarmists and Obama into a tizzy.

Unfortunately for the UN and Obama — but fortunately for humanity — the entire “Paris Agreement” is built on a foundation of lies, deceit, lawlessness, fraud, PR gimmicks, and bluster. Basically, the globalists built their tyrannical scheme on a foundation of quicksand. Already, the overwhelming majority of the U.S. public rejects the man-made global-warming theory. A growing body of evidence discrediting the theory continues to pile up. All that remains is for concerned Americans to continue their efforts to expose and ultimately destroy the UN’s totalitarian “climate” regime once and for all. The future of freedom and prosperity depend on it.

Pizza Hut, McDonalds, and KFC REJECT Halal Meat… MUSLIMS ARE FURIOUS!


waving flagWritten by Kosar

Fast food chains McDonald’s, Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC), and Pizza Hut have all REJECTED a request from an Islamic Imam to have Islam-approved meat served in their chains.Islam is NOT

In Hong Kong, Mufti Muhammad Arshad contacted these popular, global chains demanding they use “halal meat” to please Muslims. He said it would be a “screwed business move,” too.

Halal is an Arabic word that means “permissible.” Halal meat comes from an animal slaughtered according to Islamic law. That means Allah’s (God’s) name must be pronounced during slaughter, the instrument used must be very sharp (the animal must be slit at the throat), the animal must not be unconscious, and it must be hung upside down and allowed to bleed dry.

In other words, it’s an extra-painful process for the animals. No pork prepared in any way is allowed, neither are certain parts of other animals (such as the rear end).

“It’s disappointing that we could not convince the companies,” Arshad said. “It doesn’t have to be Hong Kong-wide. In the main areas, like Central, Wan Chai, Tsim Sha Tsui, the New Territories and at the airport, it would be a great service. The companies have to realise there is a need for this and that it is good business for them.”

Tourism sector lawmaker Paul Tse Wai-chun said he would welcome anything that would increase the diversity of Hong Kong and cater for people from different religious backgrounds. He said it would also be good for local businesses.

Arshad is not happy with the decision, but believes it’s only a time before every restaurant in the world serves it, just like they do in other Asian markets, such as Singapore.

Chinese Military Admits It Just Tested An Intercontinental Ballistic Missile


waving flagReported by Jonah Bennett; National Security/Foreign Policy Reporter

The Chinese Defense Ministry just confirmed it recently tested an intercontinental ballistic missile, sending a strong signal to outside observers, just as disputes over the South China Sea mount. The ministry released a statement saying “technological research experiments conducted according to plan within China’s boundaries are normal and are not aimed at any specific nations or targets,” according to a Thursday Associated Press report.

As usual, the ministry, though tacitly admitting of the launch, did not confirm the location of the test site.

A Tuesday report from the Free Beacon quoted Pentagon officials saying the Chinese military tested a DF-41 missile. What seems clear is the Chinese are working on retooling their ICBMs to carry nuclear warheads, based on testimony from U.S. Strategic Command Adm. Cecil Harry back in January. Additionally, the missile test comes at a time when tensions over the South China Sea are heating up. One of China’s most prominent military officials, Gen. Fan Changlong, paid a visit to the Spratly Islands at roughly the same time Secretary of Defense Ash Carter flew over to the region.

China claims almost the entirety of the South China Sea, and although the Pentagon has not taken any stance on ownership claims, it has urged China to stop building artificial islands and reclaiming land. China appears to have ignored the Pentagon completely and regularly balks when the Pentagon conducts freedom of navigation patrols in the region, saying the U.S. is unnecessarily militarizing the area by developing alliances with other countries under threat by China.

Meanwhile, China is also slowly militarizing its artificial islands, making it more obvious that the purpose of the islands is not purely or even primarily civilian. But to maintain that image, China has paid civilian fishing boats to assert its claims in the region, so that it does not appear as though the military is stepping up efforts to claim the South China Sea as its sovereign territory.

China’s display of force with the DF-41 is significant, given that it has a range of 7,456 miles. This means it can reach any part within the United States.

Chinese navy looms as Russia strikes Syrian rebels

TEL AVIV – As Russia’s Caspian Sea fleet launched precision-guided cruise missiles at Syrian rebel positions, a Chinese naval vessel continued to loom menacingly in the background, maintaining its presence in the Mediterranean Sea amid Chinese denials that the People’s Liberation Army will enter the Syrian conflict.

A Middle Eastern defense official affirmed the Chinese military ship is located a short trip of several “hours” from the Syrian coast. The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that while China’s intentions are unclear, the vessel’s presence is well known to Middle Eastern and Persian Gulf countries as well as to the U.S. and Russia.

The official said that China is reluctant to directly intervene in Syria or approach Syrian waters unless the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad formally requests the assistance of Chinese military advisers.

Even then, China may only take on an advisory role and not carry out military missions alongside the Russians and Syrians, the official said.

Reconfirming information reported by WND last month, the official said another option being discussed is for the Russian government to make a public gesture toward requesting the Chinese presence.

A Syrian regime source confirmed knowledge of the Chinese vessel and said no decision has been made by Assad’s regime about requesting any Chinese assistance in fighting the years-long insurgency led by Middle East rebels.

Publicly, China has maintained a detached posture toward the Syrian conflict.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said at the U.N. Security Council last week that “the international community cannot look on without lifting a finger, but also ought not to interfere arbitrarily.”

“A political resolution for the Syrian crisis is the fundamental way out,” he added.

Former Soviet-bloc intelligence chief Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa reveals the secret strategies destroying Western civilization in his book “Disinformation ” and the companion documentary.

And Zhang Junshe, a senior researcher at the PLA Naval Military Studies Research Institute, was quoted by the Chinese Global Times tabloid last week calling reports of a Chinese warship advancing toward Syria “purely rumors.”

Junshe was speaking about the Chinese 152 Fleet, which recently finished an escort mission and in August embarked on a five-month tour to take the fleet from the Gulf of Aden to the Mediterranean Sea and the Baltic Sea.

Junshe said the fleet’s mission was planned before Russia started to act in Syria.

The Middle Eastern defense official who spoke to WND denied a report from Debka.com, a private website headquartered in Israel, claiming the Chinese aircraft carrier Liaoning-CV-16 has docked at the Syrian port of Tartus, accompanied by a guided-missile cruiser.

The Debka report prompted the chatter about China entering the Syria conflict as did the Lebanese English language website Al-Masdar Al-Arabi, which two weeks ago quoted a senior Syrian Army officer stationed in Latakia as saying “the Chinese will be arriving in the coming weeks” and will join the Russian military there.

On Wednesday, acting from 1,000 miles away in the Caspian Sea, the Russian navy bombarded Syrian rebel positions. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced at a televised briefing that Russian ships launched 26 cruise missiles in Syria, destroying 11 targets.

The Washington Post reported the naval strikes represented the first known operational use of state-of-the-art SSN-30A Kalibr cruise missiles.

Russian President Vladimir Putin boasted the strikes showed the professionalism of Russia’s military.

“We know how difficult it is to carry out this kind of anti-terrorist operation,” Putin said. “Of course, it is early to draw conclusions. But what has been done so far deserves a highly positive assessment.”

obama_vs_putin_by_iamtheunison-d6lugnxThe Russian missiles traversed Iranian and Iraqi airspace, demonstrating clear coordination with both countries.

Iraq announced last week week it recently established an intelligence-sharing platform with the Russians, Syrians and Iranians.

The intelligence coordination could jeopardize U.S. security, because the U.S. maintains its own intelligence-sharing channels with Iraq.

The Russian strikes were backed up by a massive Syrian ground campaign, Gen. Ali Abdullah Ayoub, chief of the General Staff of the Army and Armed Forces, told Syria’s SANA state-run media agency.

The agency further reported that following the Russian missile salvo “hundreds of of terrorists were confirmed dead, and tens of armored vehicles, two Grad rocket launchers and a huge ammunition depot were destroyed as a result of the airstrikes.”
