Juncker Warning on Climate Treaty Recalls Meddling on U.S. Guns and Sovereignty

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- “Ahead of President Donald Trump’s announcement on whether the U.S. will pull out of the Paris climate deal, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker warned that leaving the agreement would be a slow process, taking up to three or four years,” Politico reported Thursday.

“It’s not possible that one leaves this climate agreement overnight, as some people in the United States think,” Juncker declared. “This takes three, four years — which is laid down in the agreement itself.”

What “agreement”?

“[T]he administration knew that a binding climate treaty would need to be voted on in the Senate,” the energy and environmental policy advocacy group the American Energy Alliance noted last August. “Instead, they worked hard to create a non-binding agreement, which they argue would not need to be ratified by the Senate (despite President Obama’s recent attempt to portray the agreement as a treaty). However, non-binding agreements by their very nature are non-binding for future administrations.”

The President, per Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution, “shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur.” That separation of powers is required because treaties, like “Laws … made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.”

Birds of a feather (John Kerry/Facebook)

Were that not so, John Kerry’s signature on the Arms Trade Treaty would have been enough to commit the United States to United Nations restrictions. Instead, “the omnibus government funding bill passed by the Congress … contained new prohibitions on the administration using any funds to implement the conventional arms treaty [and] 50 U.S. senators signed a letter to President Obama pledging not to give advice and consent to the ATT.”

“No, the Paris climate agreement isn’t binding. Here’s why that doesn’t matter,” left-wing Think Progress ventured. “Non-binding, though, does not mean meaningless.”

Evidently countries that are upset can use shaming and ostracizing techniques to create “social pressure.”

So yeah, expect the forces of reproach to go full throttle. Just ask yourself which you would rather have: U.S. sovereignty or the approval of some drunken Luxembourgian with delusions of global governance?

Still, there’s another wrinkle, and that’s the threat of “complicated lawsuits.” So it’s past time for the Republican-dominated Senate to strap ‘em on, support the president, reject the non-treaty and tell Jean Claude & Co. to get bent.

Jean-Claude has no use for pesky “populism.” (EPP/Facebook)

After all, we’ve already seen what he and his fellow Eurocrats think about the right of the people to keep and bear arms (they have it over there– it's just not recognized as such by their rulers).

“Of course we would have liked to go further,”Juncker said about recently passed European citizen disarmament edicts. And he means for that control to be total, as his response to Donald Trump’s statement in support of BREXIT was to threaten to break up the United States, starting with Ohio and Texas.

This foreign interloper presumes to tell Americans what they can and cannot do?

  1. Clinton did not want gun control for the safety of the citizens of the country, she wanted gun control to protect the thugs that she was going to hire to take over the country. Once the citizens found out what she had or has in mind there would be a real problem. With her gun control, she could take over the country with little opposition. We are in a fight for our country.

    1. @RC I have no doubt that since she was already setting up pay to play between her and ohomo’s shadow government this country would have been taken over by the u.n. or the green thing. If so we may have well seen the last election in this country. I fully expected ohomo to declare martial law and do away with elections. The fact that the republicans took over house and senate may have prevented it. Thus his shadow government set up with h-liar-y as a figure head. I really don’t think she has the health to be in the job.

  2. A populace depending on government for protection, open borders , demigods in charge. That should seal the fate of Europe. Seams that something like that happened some time ago.

      1. @WB yes there area lot of things that the populace of this country know little about , most of them cost us tax payers.

  3. Herr Juncker is an appointed president of the EU. He was not elected. Now I ask, who is behaving more like a dictator? Him or Pres. Trump? Herr Juncker, bring it on. We’re ready for a good fight with you and the EU…

    1. I think the fight would consist of bringing the troops home, and not giving the Europeans any more money. Every country in the world signed up for the massive wealth transfer the Barry Soetoro arranged and Hillary would have presided over. But the “Accord” was not ratified by the U.S.Senate, so it is nothing; is not binding; and they can not make us pay. The Iranians are lucky to have gotten their airplane full or cash while Barry was still president or they would not have gotten paid either.

  4. Well looks like another terror strike in London using what else an assault truck and knives! Wonder if the left will ever wake up in this country. Location was London bridge.

    1. And according to eye witnesses who spoke to the guardian, police officers literally ran from the terrorists with knives. The government banned guns, the ability to speak the truth about the muslim invaders, and the government police ran from terrorists. What better case exists that one cannot rely on the government for self defense?

  5. I would love it if the US was broken up! What an arrogant fool to not understand how that is not exactly a threat. In the long run, given demographic and immigration trends, it would be the only thing stopping a total gun ban and police state from being a reality.

  6. One of your best articles yet DC! Keep directing fire upon the enemy and intelligence towards our allies. Great work as usual!
