I’m thinking of a particular dear and long-standing friend of Jerry’s and mine whose bent in philosophy, politics and religion is in the same direction as ours, but who, through the years, has demonstrated a tendency toward extreme right-wing publications that hinted (or downright smacked) of conspiracy theories, and that alluded to devious, wide-spread undermining of the United States of America. Many times I listened to his reports, but always with reservations about some of the conclusions.
It both frightens and angers me to think of my beloved country ever falling into the hands of those who wish the demise of the United States of America. Perhaps it is my positive nature, and what seems to be inbred naivete–for despite my advancing years, I am occasionally forced to recognize that, yet again, I have been naive–perhaps it is these traits that make it difficult for me to comprehend that indeed it is possible (likely?) that America is being undermined, and that the principles of our great country–the greatest by far on this earth–are being compromised. Yet, blazing signals and ill-disguised clues abound.
Prominent in this mix is the issue of Global Warming. For many months now I have struggled to understand how such a physical, scientific, earthy issue could be partisan, while observing that to be clearly so. Exceptions abound, I am sure, but predominantly it is those of liberal mind-set who believe global warming is caused by man’s influence on the earth, while we conservatives believe that not to be the case. How can that be, I have wondered. What is there about Global Warming that politically divides America (and other areas of the world)?
It is chilling, but worthwhile to consider, the issue that is raised in this video by Christopher Monckton. Speaking at the Minnesota Free Market Institute a few days ago Mr. Monckton said that within the climate treaty that Obama is so willing to sign, the ceding of our sovereignty awaits. A global government will be established that will be run of course by the U.N.; the scary part of all of this? Once Obama signs the climate treaty and if the Senate were to ratify that treaty, that treaty by virtue of Article 6 of the Constitution, would effectively trump the Constitution.
Christopher Walter Monckton, 3rd Viscount Monckton of Brenchley (born 14 February 1952) is a British politician, business consultant, policy adviser, writer, columnist, inventor and hereditary peer. He served as an advisor to Margaret Thatcher‘s policy unit in the 1980s and invented the Eternity puzzle at the end of the 1990s. More recently, he has attracted controversy for his public opposition to the mainstream scientific consensus on global warming. He also announced a sequel to his original puzzle called Eternity II in 2007, and it is still unsolved.
A few days ago, concerning another subject, I scurried about in my mind about the difficulty, yet the wisdom and authenticity, that come about when a person can say, “I was wrong about that.” America, let us look closely at what is transpiring about us, let us listen, and be ever fierce guardians of godliness and of liberty. Let us lay aside preconceived notions and opinions if such can be seen as blocking full illumination of the truth.
Is Lord Monckton right? Or is this of extreme, edgy, far right thinking into which my dear friend has engaged for years? I don’t know. I hope Lord Monckton is wrong, but let us not be ignorant nor allow ourselves to be blindsided in such a crucial matter. If you can find the time, please listen to the entire tape which is more than an hour long, but clearly debunks the man-made Global Warming theory. I’m eager to know your thinking.
