John Bolton on 'The Coming War on American Sovereignty'
Family Security Matters ^ | Feb. 27, 2009 | Pam Meister

Posted on 03/01/2009 8:14:10 PM PST by FocusNexus

Speaking to a packed room at the opening day of CPAC in Washington D.C. yesterday, former UN Ambassador John Bolton warned convention attendees of something he believes "goes to the heart of the Obama administration" and that will affect not only us but our children and grandchildren. No, not the stimulus bill (although that’s a good guess) - it's what he termed "the coming war on American sovereignty."

The problem, he said, is that liberals believe differences in policies that affect Americans shouldn't be debated here at home, but on the international stage - and we can expect it to take a variety of guises, from global warming to the Law of the Sea Treaty to arms control. In other words, look for American policy to conform to so-called international standards and international law.

Some of the policies that will make us weaker are already under way, said Bolton, including the cut in defense spending.

In conclusion, Bolton said the Obama administration "doesn't understand so much of what we need to do to protect American security. I think it's clear that our national security is at risk under this administration. I think it's a dangerous time in the United States."

Bolton is right and he is only scratching the surface.

Gee, a socialist economic policy and a clueless response to terrorism. How much damage can he, Pelosi, and Reid do in 4 years? We need to start cutting losses in 2010.

yeah, there’s a fine line between being mindful of the international community and being subservient to the international community. Democrats have their heads up their a$$es most of the time but especially when it comes to foreign policy. They’ve been that way since Carter(some will argue longer of course). Ask obama to outline an election strategy and he’ll tell us more than we want to hear but ask him to outline a pro-American foreign policy strategy, and be prepared for a lot of “uhms”, “uhs” and “ers”.

Also pretty tough to compete when your Gov’t wants to tax your energy emissions while giving your chief competitors a pass.

This is, to me, the biggest issue that has yet to outrage the American people.

Obama and the Democrats are destroying America. Finally, a patriot like Mr. Bolton speaks out.

I keep hearing more and more about a global New Deal.

I see no indication that the political elite in Washington (both parties) would oppose such madness. On the contrary....

I believe that within the next 1-2 years, when reality sets in regarding the true condition of the global economy, there will be a signficant move to one world government. I also believe that our political elite class will welcome, promote, and facilitate the move.

"the comingcontinuing war on American sovereignty."

Open Borders, One Sided Trade Agreements, US Gov't Debt that hobbles our Economy, underfunded and inefficient Military Finances and undermining of cultural threads, Intellectual Property Thievery ignored and on and on. Taken together these and a few other things are slowly whittling away at our Country. Just a repeat of history IMO.

In conclusion, Bolton said the Obama administration "doesn't understand so much of what we need to do to protect American security. I think it's clear that our national security is at risk under this administration. I think it's a dangerous time in the United States."

Exactly, the international "leaders" that wish us ill see Obama as weak and naive. Unfortunately, they are correct. He is a petulant newbie when it comes to leadership. He has no experience leading or managing people in say a corporation, military unit, or even a school board. His whiny "I won" comment speaks volumes about his frustration when things don't go exactly his way. He has no idea about how to build consensus, lead a team or group to a conclusion, accept advice/input, or even simply pick his battles. He expects everyone to defer to him.

As he comes up against players with real savvy, they are going to have him for lunch. Unfortunately, that includes us at the moment. Not only will they take advantage of him personally by playing on his personality weaknesses. They will also take advantage of him strategically and attack the United States through various treaties and agreements. He simply has no idea, no appreciation for what he is so blithely prepared to surrender. Something our forefathers fought long and hard to maintain.

I happened to have a goodbye lunch with an aging WWII vet today who is moving out of the area soon. Most of what he had to say about Obama I can't print here - it'd get me banned for language (I already push the limits). Besides, some of those words I think I need to look up. ;-) He did note that had Obama and his ilk come forward in the 1950s with these ideas, they'd have been put on trial for treason, and a file started on them as a communist sympathizers - no question about it. He lamented how the left has slowly and insidiously worked its way into the American psyche to the point where people actually cheer Obama, when a couple of decades ago he'd have been booed and had rotten produce thrown at him. He concluded we certainly have come a long way - in the wrong direction.

That’s why IT’S GOOD States are passing sovereignty resolutions, that way they can tell the feds to “back off” when they try to implement these unconstitutional dicatates (and laws).

I hate to say this here.
But you “Pollyannas” assume that there will be honest,fair elections in 2010 and 2012.
There will never be honest elections,ever,while Rahm Emanuel
is in control of the census,and “B-Ho” is the “Present-in Chief”.
Sorry.

It’s already being done.
The financial elites in this country who don’t have to tell the little people (us tax payers) where they spent the billions in TARP funds, have been pushing globalism in the name of free trade for years.

It’s called “follow the money”, American sovereignty be damned.

Remember the “buy American” push from a few years ago? All the while what you bought from the multinational “American” companies contained parts, service and financing from countries all over the world.

I believe in American exceptionalism. However, I also believe that we, through the actions of our government and multinational American born corporations, are in serious danger of becoming average at best.
The void then created by America no longer being as Reagan said; “that shining city on a hill” will be the catalyst for tyranny and suffering.

We can change this by voting with our conscience and not our comfort, using both the ballot and the wallet.

Think before you buy.

Who are you supporting?

I agree. At this time when our great country is being sabotaged from within, it is amazing to me that so many people in government and the MSM just go along. Patriots like Rush and John Bolton are the among the few to speak the truth in these difficult times.

Both: They planned to make the rest of the world love us again by surrending as much of our sovereignty and perogatives to the UN as possible. They're clueless about what the net outcome of that will actually be.

Can they be found?

That’s exactly what I posted the other day. Someone was lamenting the growth of the deficit and I chimed in with my concern for our sovereignty. There are several dimensions it is eroding - a major part being the Fed trying to increase our money supply. Are Americans going to buy treasuries? No...

Instead of praying for the Marxist Usurper as some faithful here have done, why not pray for these two men and others like them to much success in telling the truth about the coup from within our own government? God knows we won't have a country in two years if the Marxist continues to assault us, the little people, on all sides as he has done in just his first month in office. Pray that Rush and Bolton and other patriots are not silenced. Do everything you can to resist this unholy take-over of our beautiful country. If we don't, we won't have it much longer. As for waiting to change the nature of Congress in 2010, we may not have elections, as someone has pointed out. They will be hijacked by Acorn and voter fraud so massive it will make your head spin.

I think it’s a dangerous time in the United States.” He doesn’t believe we’ve reached the “tipping point” that so many people are talking about today regarding America, but we must make sure we avoid the decades of decline that Britain endured after World War II.

Agreed, Mr. Bolton. It's not the tipping point that so many are hoping for, one way and another.

God TELLS us to pray for those in authority over us so that we can live in peace. There’s a good reason to pray for Obama. God told me years ago to pray for the Clintons and it was hard to do that, believe me. He and his entire cabinet and Congress need our prayers. This is a spiritual battle, not a personality battle. He tells us to pray for those who despitefully use us. How much clearer can it be? We do not battle flesh and blood but powers and principalities and there are plenty of those over Washington, DC. Pray against them in Jesus’ name.
