Skip to comments.Global Poverty Act
Posted on 02/15/2008 7:05:01 AM PST by radar101
This act which just passed through the Senate Foreign Relations Committee yesterday would commit the next president of the United States -- oh, my gosh, that may be Obama, what a coincidence. It would commit him to working towards the worldwide poverty goals set by the United Nations millennium declaration.
These goals may cost America an estimated $845 billion, while making us subservient to a whole array of U.N. treaties and resolutions like the Kyoto Protocol.
CLIFF KINCAID, ACCURACY IN MEDIA: That`s right. I found out about it a couple of days ago when it was really secretly put on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee agenda. It was sprung on the House last September, brought up for a voice vote. It passed.
KINCAID: And the Bush administration agreed to it. The Barack Obama bill basically, without mentioning the .7 percent, or the necessity of a global tax, commits the United States to carrying out this objective, meeting its own "millennium goal." And...
KINCAID: Right. This commits us to spend the money as dictated by the U.N., .7 percent, according to Jeffrey Sachs, who ran the U.N. Millennium Project. It means the United States has been short by $65 billion a year on what is called official development assistance.
BECK: OK. But it also -- it also puts us in line for Kyoto, it also puts us in line for what is also part of this U.N., you know, millennium agreement, of banning all small arms.
Plus, they have a so-called millennium declaration. That actually came out in 2000, which not only commits us to the more foreign aid spending, but calls on countries to implement Kyoto, a ban on small weapons, the children`s rights treaty, the women`s rights treaty. .

Oh my good dear God. What have they done?
Global Socialism, with “them” in charge.
This has been the goal forever.
I read the Millennium declaration when it came out. And Agenda 21. And Our Global Neighborhood.
It’s worthwhile for FReepers to read these to get a true indication on how these elitist worldocrats think. ‘Pod.
“Dictated by the UN?” Less than half of the member states are Democracies. Grind the POS into the ground and build a casino.
Yep! If the UN has their way the whole world will be living in poverty in the next 25 years.
(If that long)
I’m glad this is coming out now. Perhaps more people will quit falling for the hope slogan of B. Hussein Obama and realize what his real agenda is.
What will $845 billion in aid really do when most of it ends up stolen? Wealth redistribution from those who work hard to those who work hard stealing what we have.
How did McCain vote on this?
The only ones that will get this money are the thieves. The world will always have its share of poor. Always has, always will. Ask yourself, “Why do people on TV ask for $10.00 for nets to send to Africa? Why don’t they ask for the nets?” They want your money, not the nets.
“How did McCain vote on this?”
Since it just left the Senate Foreign Relations committee I don’t think McCrazy has had a chance to vote for it yet. Other folks on the committee include; Dodd (CT), Hagel (NE), Kerry (MA), Boxer(CA), Sununu (NH), Nelson (FL), Obama (IL), Biden and Lugar among others that are less well known to me.
America has been betrayed.
IIRC gays coined a term to describe a tactic used for silencing opposition; though, back in the day [it] was used exclusively to further their cause of homosexuality. Was called, "Jamming".
Well children jamming's done gone global and today employed by our own government, against us!!
You know, socialism isn’t creeping anymore, it’s coming at us in leaps and bounds! I wasn’t expecting anything like this until after I retired.
Who’s got the BANG ping list ?
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day . . .
If you look at the co-sponsors one of them is Sen. Richard Lugar (R). I think a conservative should run against this Senator.
Exhibit “A” in why all Republicans in open primaries must get to the polls, hold their noses, and vote for Hillary Rodham Clinton on March 4th. B. Hussein Obama is the most dangerous candidate in my lifetime. The trojan horse communist.
Exactly. Only fools believe that global poverty is caused by a simple lack of money. You need not be a genius to see that the real causes are inconvenient realities such as the fact that crooks run a lot of third world countries.
Thanks. Noticed it. Haven’t read it yet. Will check it out.
They have been selling us down the river as slaves for decades.
Now, they are doing it more openly and more seriously horribly.
They deserve every torture hell has reserved for them.
TREASONOUS TO THE MAX!
But Lugar is a "conservative," dontcha know? Unfortunately, he's a BIG TIME GLOBALIST as well. Hagel voted for this in committee too. Can't remember who else. Heard it this morning on radio. They are trying to hustle it to the floor maybe to slip it in with a voice vote like they did in the House. That way, no one can be blamed for selling out our sovereignty. Of course, we may well be past the point that any of these pos we have elected give a rat's rearend what we think.
STOP THINKING RIGHT VS. LEFT AND START THINKING ELITES VS. US. There are way more conservative elites than patriots that we've elected to our Senate.
A total waste. Clinton, Obama, and McCain are ALL tools of the Globalists. It doesn't make any difference who you vote for. The results will be identical.
The whole blasted Senate has been co-opted by the socialists/globalists/communists for a very long time. I just hadn’t realized how thoroughly.
Lugar . . . he ought to have known better long ago. What a traitorous disappointment.
I’m not usually accused of being subtle.
. . . though have been on occasion, believe it or not . . .
I just felt your point was inherently screamingly true and deserved much more highlighting. LOL.
Hope you don’t mind too much.
I’d love to see a march on Wash on the issue by millions of folks. But it won’t happen. The mind control . . . propaganda stuff has been toooo effective. The frog in the bucket lulled to sleep sheeple are marching lock step with the traitorous idiots into the jaws of oblivion.
I’m glad I read the end of THE BOOK and know who wins.
HE ALONE is our refuge.
In terms of your home page . . .
I didn’t expect to agree so wholesale with it after reading your intro. But I do.
I think George Washington’s vision is a true one . . . i.e. that is really from him . . . and really prophetically true. I believe we will see it played out in our lifetimes.
And I’m 61.
I’ve known Hagel to be a globalist but not Lugar... I am not even going to think of it has elites vs. US but more of an UnConstitutional, non sovereignty group of dopes vs. US.
Man oh man.. we are up human excrement creek with no paddle unless we as Americans do something and do it soon.
We’ve been up that crick a long time.
Folks just didn’t realize that their paddles were turning from wood to paper mache in their unused hands.
The die is well cast.
Have been wondering for years what the time frame would be for the climax of history as we’ve known it.
It’s clearer by the day.
I do not expect a President to even be pseudo pretend elected after the next four years and certainly not after the next 8.
Events more dramatic than all the rest of the global dramas of the last 2000 years will overtake the planet.
Scripture says that when the evil are in power, the good hide themselves.
God will help the good do that . . . though many will be martyred.
The luke-warm will be in for some particular . . . harshness.
And the traitorous cluless globalist idiots have lots of demonic torturers eager to get their hands on them in hell.
Then you have not been following Lugar for long. He has a LONG record of globalist and United Nations activity in the Foreign Relations Committee. There are less than 10 Republican Senators IMO who would not be thrilled to give away our sovereignty. You may think of it in any terms you please, but it boils down to the elites of both parties against us, the peons and taxpayers who have elected these jokers who have sold us and the country they were born in out to the global elite for their own benefit.
To be quite honest... I haven’t known of Lugar until today. I’ve tried to keep up on the globalists but never seen his name brought up. Probably should’ve looked harder, huh? :) Yeah, it truly does boil down to the party elites, that’s why we peons need to start believing in the We the People portion of the Constitution again, like most conservatives do.
The results will be worse than the war on poverty in the USA. No one ever goes after the real cause of poverty, GOVERNMENT CONTROLS. The more communist or socialist the government the poorer the people. Only democracy and freedom can cure poverty.
Have fun with John McCain.
This post (<-click), while addressing a tax-related thread, explains in more detail why misguided, spending-happy politicians like Obama are foolishly following in the footsteps of FDR's dirty federal spending politics.
The bottom line is that the people need to send big-shot, constitution-ignoring federal spenders like Obama and Clinton home instead of trying to put people like them in the Oval Office.
Ok- i’ve been out of the loop on this- WTH is going on here? This is the legal grounds for utterly underming our sovereignty- among other things...
I need to go learn more.
Gotta love these backroom deals. There is a watered down version of Shamnesty being rammed through as we speak too. Haven’t seen a thread on it though. If Congress can get that done none of the three sock puppets will have to deal with Shamnesty in the election.
Actually we are already enveloped by socialism. We are now just deciding how much. In short, we're screwed.
Huh?!?! WHAT is going on here?
We could be heading for some very bad times.
I started to read some of the comments left by readers about this legislation- they’re all in favor of it. I’m speechless.
H.R. 1302 would require the President to develop and implement a comprehensive strategy to further the United States foreign policy objective of promoting the reduction of global poverty, the elimination of extreme global poverty, and the achievement of the United Nations Millennium Development Goal of reducing by one-half the proportion of people worldwide, between 1990 and 2015, who live on less than $1 per day.
Its time to stop paying the Federal Income tax. Its time to resist.
No worries. I thought it was great.
Thanks. That was my flying off the handle rant of the day when I wrote that. One of those days when enough was finally enough and had to rant.
Under the radar and already through the House.
