Why does Obama and the socialist/democrats believe that treaties are superior to the U.S. Constitution? Well, we know Obama does since he always tries to go around Congress and the Constitution! And to think, Obama taught Constitutional law – even without a law license since he gave it upo when he heard the Illinois state bar was in the process of revoking is law license!
Can Obama and the Democratic led Senate invest the federal government with new powers not enumerated in the U.S. Constitution simply by signing and ratifying a treaty? Can the Tenth Amendment be overridden by passing a treaty? Well, we will soon find out when the U.S. Supreme Court on decides today in the case of Bond v. United States.
Here’s what this case is about. Mrs. Bond, under Pennsylvania law, could have been charged with assault, and very likely could have been convicted, and could have received a sentence appropriate for the crime. However, she was charged under federal law instead since she had used household chemicals on her neighbor’s mail box. The federal government (DOJ per Obama) claimed the authority was based on the treaty the Senate had ratified. The crime with which Mrs. Bond was charged was considered a way to implement the terms of the Chemical Weapons treaty and to avoid the Constitution!
One of biggest concerns about the Bond case now, is that this method could be used to criminalize other behavior that the federal government may not regulate, such as gun ownership. Obama and Eric Holder have been searching for a way to implement gun control. Heck, they even went so far as to provide guns to the Mexican Cartels! Thus, could Obama draw on the treaty power to impose further regulations on firearms? I would NOT put it past Obama who I believe is a LIAR and a CHEAT!
The United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly approved a treaty (Arms Trade Treaty)designed to regulate global trade in conventional weapons. Article 8 of the Arms Trade Treaty requires the government of any country which imports guns to “take measures to ensure that appropriate and relevant information is provided” to the government of the exporting country, stating “such measures may include end use or end user documentation.” This article and other similar articles in the treaty would open the door to a national registry of guns, facilitating the confiscation of firearms of the citizenry in an emergency declared by the President. In this case, the CROOK Obama! Predictably, Secretary of State John Kerry, another LIAR & CROOK (will not allow BENGHAZIA people to testify. WHY?), signed this treaty on behalf of the United States, presenting it to the U.S. Senate for ratification.
If Obama could form another “Gang of Eight” Senators to join him to ratify this UN Arms Trade Treaty, a Supreme Court with just one new member could find an excuse to claim a powerful new theory to erode gun rights. Thus, a UN treaty could be used as a basis to implement a national gun registry, or other restrictions on guns and thus override the U.S. Constitution!
If we do NOT stop the federal government in the Bond case, the progressives (one world order), at home and abroad will keep trying to reduce the individual freedom of Americans, so that we are more like the citizens of other nations. You do NOT want to be like the other nations, do you?
REMEMBER BENGHAZI (PLEASE POSTS THE BENGHAZI LIES TOLD BY OBAMA TO COVER UP THE ATTACK)
