Does Obama Nominee Support World Government?

Wednesday, 08 Jun 2011 12:39 PM

President Barack Obama’s choice for commerce secretary, John Bryson, seems to support the idea of a world government in a video of a speech posted on DailyCaller.com.

world government obama nomineen the video, which the Caller said it received from “sources on Capitol Hill,” Bryson praises the 2009 United Nations meeting on climate control in Copenhagen as “the closest thing we have to a world governance organization.”

Bryson has been criticized for his support of cap and trade, and for his founding in the 1970s of the liberal environmental organization Natural Resources Defense Council. Among his detractors is Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., who says Bryson supports Obama’s “job-killing agenda.” Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has referred to him as a “green evangelist.”

“Bryson’s willingness to cede American sovereignty over domestic energy production to the United Nations may be a disqualifier for him to serve as secretary of commerce,” Brian Darling, senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation, told the Caller after viewing the video.

“Bryson should be asked to explain his comments and where the United Nations derives the authority to force the United States into U.N.-approved regulations on U.S. energy producers.”

Colin Hanna, president of Let Freedom Ring, sees a fundamental conflict of interest in Bryson taking on the role.

“The point is that his views on global government and on global governance, and on climate change are diametrically opposed to goals of the commerce secretary,” said Hanna. “His job is to increase exports, reduce unemployment, provide jobs and help the US economy.”
