We Will Not Relinquish Our Sovereignty to The New World Order…

June 5, 2012

American Freedom Alliance Conference To Focus On How Global Governance Undermines National Sovereignty

Is the West’s and America’s next–and perhaps most important–ideological war between global governance and  national sovereignty? (connected to Law of the Sea Treaty)

Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) needs to be extensively modified if not rejected altogether. Thirty years ago, President Reagan wisely shelved this UN project. He viewed it, as most Americans who have serious concerns about that world body viewed it, as a typical example of liberal internationalist global oney. Jimmy Carter, probably sensing that he would get the boot from American voters, began trolling for votes on the Nobel Peace Prize committee through such ill-considered measures.

First, we need to throw overboard any “International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea.” The UN would choose this maritime court. How do we like the UN Human Rights Council? That body contains such human rights offenders as China, Cuba, Saudi Arabia, and, until it was just too blatantly obvious to continue, Libya.

If this is the UN’s idea of human rights, can we imagine what a Law of the Sea Tribunal would look like? Perhaps we could persuade Johnny Depp to do a star turn with his fellow “Pirates of the Caribbean” as judges of the sea. That would be a tribunal less hostile to justice than anything we’d see in a UN nominated and elected maritime court.

That is the provocative–and important–question that will be discussed at the “Global Governance vs. National Sovereignty”  conference on June 10 and 11 in Los Angeles, California at the Intercontinental Hotel.

Avi Davis, president of the American Freedom Alliance, told Breitbart News the conference will be issuing a declaration on preserving national sovereignty that will be sent to world leaders and former world leaders, to which all of the conference’s participants have agreed upon in advance. Davis said his group has also been “working with several foreign policy advisers of the Romney campaign in an effort to feed them information about the seriousness of the global governance message” and have made efforts to reach out to the Sovereignty Caucus on Capitol Hill and to Senators such as John Kyl (R-Ariz.) and Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) who are concerned about the dangers of international law in undermining American sovereignty.

“We need…to expose the true motivations…of those pushing international standards in human rights, environmental regulation and the laws of war upon us,” Davis told Breitbart News. “It is not to better our lives – or anybody else’s lives. It is to control us.”

Leaders such as Former Australia Prime Minister John Howard, Czech Republic President Vaclav Klaus and America’s former Ambassador to the United Nations under the George W. Bush Administration, John Bolton, will deliver addresses examining “whether the forces of global governance are successfully challenging the very concept of national sovereignty in the U.S., Europe, and Israel.” The two-day conference will also focus on how the rise of transnational law at the U.S. Supreme Court, the United Nations, human rights NGOs and organizations like Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch threaten America’s national security policies and can potentially undermine American sovereignty.

“As we enter the second decade of the 21st Century, an epic struggle seems to be developing between the forces of global governance and American constitutional democracy,” the conference’s organizers write in introduction to the conference’s agenda. “Transnationalists in the United Nations and the European Union, but more more importantly among America’s elites, are seeking to establish a ‘global rule of law’ which would make American constitutional law subservient to a global authority.”

Most importantly, the conference will seek to ask: “How can a vigorous defense of sovereign self-government be mounted so that it becomes a central issue in our foreign policy debate?”

Former Ambassador to United Nations John Bolton will keynote a speech (“What is the global governance movement and what is its agenda?”) while Czech Republic President Vaclav Klaus will deliver an address on the promotion of global governance through the United Nations and global warming alarmism. Former Australian Prime Minister John Howard will give a speech on why nation states still matter.

Other speakers include Davis, Breitbart News’ Stephen K. Bannon, Robert C. O’Brien, Managing Partner of the Los Angeles office of Arent Fox law firm and a regular commenter on national security issues, Roger Simon, the co-founder of Pajamas TV, and former Bush Administration Justice Department official and Berkeley law professor John Yoo, whose upcoming book, Taming Globalization, examines how “American sovereignty channels and resists efforts at global governance.”

Various breakout sessions will focus on topics such as “non-governmental organizations as purveyors of global governance,” whether Europe is a model for transnational global governance, the Green movement, Agenda 21, and global warming alarmism as fronts for global governance, and how rules governing the Internet can also be used to undermine national sovereignty.

Other breakout sessions will focus on how specific laws that purportedly deal with things such as “global warming” can be applied to undermine sovereignty. One session is titled, “Lawfar: its uses and abuses.” Other will focus on “the human rights industry and its role in undermining sovereignty,” “the demonization/diminishment of the United States and Israel as a chief global governance strategy,” and “case studies of U.S. judicial decisions which have diminished U.S. sovereignty.”

The conference will also have panels dealing with “the politicization of International Law and its impact on national sovereignty” and an important workshop on how people can “use the political process to thwart and defeat global governance activism.”

    The first attempt to accomplish ceding our sovereignty to Global Governance failed when the The Climate Change Summit “failed” in Copenhagen in 2009. ( language incorporated in the CCTreaty would have usurped our sovereignty without a whimper.)

    Once again, the elites attempt to purloin our sovereignty and Independence in secret by dishonest means.

    Has anyone heard a politician vocalizing contempt for our government ‘giving’ way our sovereignty to the UN placing us under the authority of the United Nations? In effect dissolving our Constitution, our Bill of Rights and our court systems never again to be reclaimed except by a unanimous vote by the UN veto powers holding sway over issues addressing individual countries. Have a look at the list… All that is needed to prevent a vote from going forward is one of the five members using their veto power.

    The countries holding permanent Veto Power are the 5 members of The UN Security Council : Russia, China, United States, United Kingdom and France.

    I think some of the one world government types have good intentions, but they are in a star trek fantasy land – we are “light years” away from a time when our planet works as one cohesive, harmonious whole. Meanwhile these types are being used by those bent on world domination and exploitation. I would love to go to this conference!

    Personally, the intent of the Founding Fathers was to keep us seperate and apart from other countries. i.e. England.. The Patriots of this country shed their blood and died for us having the privilege to be FREE from all constraits of government… even our own.

    Who do these Jokers think they are anyway- They think they have an original idea? We’ve been there and done that 236 yrs ago- and why we celebrate “Independence Day”, every 4th of July!

    $170?

    They must sit indoors with the shades drawn on 7/4!

    Global Governance vs. National Sovereignty conference costs $170 – I’m local and thought about going but too costly.
