In 1776 Paul Revere warned his fellow colonists that the redcoats were coming. Today it's a different story: a British aristocrat is warning Americans that the reds are on our doorstep.
In the past few days his lordship, Christopher Walter Monckton, 3rd Viscount Monckton of Brenchley, has assumed the role of a modern-day Paul Revere to warn the people of a nation he reveres that they are about to lose their freedom and that America is about to allow its chief executive to surrender our sovereignty.
This is no idle warning from an idle member of the idle peerage. Lord Christopher Monckton is an experienced statesman, once an adviser to Britain's Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, and brilliant scientist who has exposed the idiocy of the belief that the planet is in the process of being barbecued by global warming.
Lord Monckton has taken the trouble to read all 200 pages of the so-called climate treaty Barack Obama plans to sign in Copenhagen in December after a Democrat-controlled United States Congress enacts the cap and trade bill already approved by the House and now awaiting final passage in the U.S. Senate.
His frightening assessment of that treaty, due to become law of the land upon Senate passage, is that it abandons the national sovereignty for which tens of thousands of Americans have died to protect for 200 years and makes the United States of America totally subservient to an international elite, all in the name of protecting the nation from a gigantic hoax known as global warming.
Anybody who has followed my campaign to warn my fellow Americans over the past 12 years knows that the evidence conclusively proves that the planet is not undergoing a continuing and dangerous warming but is instead now well into a cooling phase that could develop into a new little ice age. But that's not the point I want to make here. It's not the temperature and where it's headed that concerns me. It's how the global-warming hysteria is being used as an instrument of the tyranny about to be imposed on us.
At a recent conference on global warming, Lord Monckton said "When the Founding Fathers of this great nation met in that hot summer long ago in the City of Brotherly Love to craft the noble Constitution of the United States, they were building their great nation upon the solid foundation of your Declaration of Independence.
"Independence! This winter, if the United States signs up to the Treaty of Copenhagen, her independence — and our freedom — will be gone forever. If Thomas Jefferson were alive today, he would be turning in his grave."
He went on to say "Last year the president of the Czech Republic told this conference, 'It’s not about climatology — it’s about freedom.' This year the president of the European Union told us the same. Two statesmen with one message."
Understand this: the treaty President Obama plans to sign in Copenhagen abolishes the United States of America as a free and independent nation, rendering it into a mere political subdivision of a world government. If he does commit this act of national suicide, the treaty will be either approved or disapproved by the U.S. Senate which must vote on it before it becomes law of the land. Controlled as it is by Obama's party, it will approve it and the United States of America and its citizenry will no longer be free and independent.
That's what's at stake here. It's not some boogie man hiding under our national bed. It's real and it's in our face. Unless we rise up and tell Barack Obama that it he signs away our freedom and independence in Copenhagen we will see to it that he will be impeached and driven from office.
It’s up to the American people. It’s up to us.
Faugh 'a ballagh.
