SHOCK! Secretary of State John Kerry To Sign UN Arms Treaty Despite Senators Opposition

SHOCK!! Secretary of State John Kerry To Sign UN Arms Treaty Despite Senators Opposition

Published September 24, 2013FoxNews.com

Secretary of State John Kerry plans to sign a controversial U.N. treaty on arms regulation on Wednesday, a senior State Department official told Fox News -- despite warnings from lawmakers that the Senate will not ratify the agreement.

A State official said the treaty would "reduce the risk that international transfers of conventional arms will be used to carry out the world's worst crimes," while protecting gun rights.

"The treaty builds on decades of cooperative efforts to stem the international, illegal, and illicit trade in conventional weapons that benefits terrorists and rogue agents," the official said.

U.S. lawmakers, though, have long claimed that the treaty could lead to new gun control measures. Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., one of the most vocal opponents of the treaty, sent a letter to Kerry declaring it "dead in the water," since a majority of senators has gone on record against the agreement.

Controversy - Undead to be stripped of voting rights

A controversial bill circulating around Washington seeks to strip the undead of their right to vote.

Senator John McCain and SOS John Kerry have voiced their opposition...

Pandacentricism will be our downfall.

Funny, because just yesterday I posted this...

"The world is getting played right now, big time.

The winner in the Syria 'chemical weapons' incident, that was staged by the Globalists, is... the Globalists!

I said it over & over to all of DP that Obama & Putin are working together, for the NWO.

What happened?

They came together on an agreement, over the threat of WW3. And the precedent that was set, was that the U.N. gains even more power & the ability to confiscate a nation's weapons arsenal.

That is a total violation of national sovereignty. It is by all means, an ACT of WAR! Waged by the United Nations, supported by Obama & Putin regimes.

I oppose their U.N. "solution", to the 'problem, reaction...'.

It was clearly one of the globalists' goals the whole time. They at least got to move their piece on the chess board. It is also clear, that Assad was used by the globalists, whether willingly, or unwittingly. I believe willingly, all along. He's a tool. He's playing his part. Don't forget that dinner meeting he had with Skull & Bones John Kerry a couple years ago.

Now, I oppose the U.N. dictating to Syria what weapons they can have. Just like I oppose the U.N. dictating to US, or Israel, or any other country, what weapons they can have.

This whole thing is like setting the precedent for the U.N. small arms ban. And now we are getting these planned shootings again, and another in Niyrobi, Kenya. It's all coming down the pike."

Debbie's picture

The Secretary of State is not authorized to sign treaties, see

Article II, Section 2, Para. 2 of the U.S. Constitution. The President can only sign "provided two thirds of the Senators present concur;" and all laws must be made "in Pursuance" of the Constitution in order to be valid, (Art. VI, Para. 2).

Debbie

Clinton signed us onto

the WTO without the consent of 2/3 of the Senate, and with the GOP collectivists in the leadership in both Houses, they will bicker, but won't do anything to stop it. I would like to when this Adminstration followed the Constitution on anything?

That is the real risk

This will be implemented without a formal vote. Laws which will definitely be unconstitutional shall be passed to implement even without formal ratification, and lying GOP globalists will be on board with disarmament of citizens.

Take back the GOP and Restore America Now.

Exactly.
