The Golfer-in-Chief is back at work now and the world situation awaits his attention.  Russia may have invaded Ukraine, although Vlad assures everyone that it was an accident; his troops didn’t mean to cross the border. It was faulty maps. They were only looking for the road to Crimea. Hamas and Israel have a cease-fire going all of one day so far. I’m sure the rockets will soon commence from Gaza. China is flying fighter aircraft within 30 feet of US Navy P-8 Poseidon anti-submarine warfare aircraft in a show of disrespect. The French government was dissolved, probably because they stood in Hollande’s way to socialism and the 75% tax rate. Iran continues on its road toward nuclear weapons development. ISIS (I refuse to call it ISIL or Islamic State) beheaded an American journalist and the US air war escalated to more targets in Iraq. One of the casualties was an American fighting for ISIS, which caused consternation at the possibility of American and European ISIS members with valid passports returning home to cause terror attacks in their homelands. Of course, here in the United States, you don’t even have to worry about passports as we have an open border policy on our southern boundaries.

So, upon return to the job, after speaking at an American Legion meeting on Wednesday and not receiving a warm, fuzzy reception, much to Sen. Kay Hagan’s chagrin, the pressing matters for action are revealed. With all the afore-mentioned situations in need of attention, the President’s deliberations turn to the United Nations’ global climate change treaty. That’s right, the most important issue on Obama’s mind is the non-existent global warming. Since the US Senate has already decided not to pass the treaty, Obama plans to circumvent Congress with a “legally binding” accord that basically names and shames offending polluters. He will tell his EPA to further crack down on carbon emissions, which will result in restrictions doing damage to businesses and the national economic recovery, if there has been a recovery.Then, the UN plan calls for the industrialized nations to pay the third world countries to clean up their areas of operation.

Legally, to me, an international “legally binding” accord sounds just like a treaty. A treaty, according to the US Constitution, requires two-thirds approval of the US Senate. The United Nations has tried to get this approved by the Senate for the last eighteen years or so, to no avail. Hence, Obama will call this an accord, stating it doesn’t need Senate approval. Even the French Ambassador to the UN Climate Change committee says it doesn’t require approval by the Senate.. The channeling of funds to poorer nations to help them adapt to climate change is even more of a problem, as all spending starts in the House of Representatives. This seems an abuse of power by the President, who already faces a lawsuit for his abuse of power.

Most reasonable people believe that climate change, aka global warming, is a hoax. It is perpetrated by psuedo-scientists who start out with a result, then manufacture the data to support that result, thus earning the money for the grant established by climate change advocates. Manhattan isn’t under water as the projected twenty years ago. The ice pack isn’t shrinking; it’s actually increased. The average temperature hasn’t increased; in fact, it hasn’t in the last 17 years. This year, we’ve had record lows this summer. The forecast for this winter in the Farmer’s Almanac shows a colder than normal winter with more snow for us.

This administration’s belief they can  make their own agreements could cause serious problems nationally. If this goes unchallenged, as so many other things have, it could just  be assumed to be approved, by other than constitutional means and the United States will be deemed to have passed the treaty. Will the Senate challenge it? Under Harry Reid, I doubt it. The House could pass articles of impeachment, but, again, the Senate would never take it up. If this goes unchallenged, next up would be the UN Small Arms Treaty, a curtailment of the 2nd Amendment. After that, the UN Laws of the Sea Treaty, in which the US Navy would have to ask permission to fulfill its missions, could be next. Once one domino falls, what’s to keep the rest of them from falling?
