I usually add some gentle humor to these reports. Not today. Read this and weep. Notwithstanding the carefully-orchestrated propaganda to the effect that nothing much will be decided at the UN climate conference here in Cancun, the decisions to be made here this week signal nothing less than the abdication of the West. The governing class in what was once proudly known as the Free World is silently, casually letting go of liberty, prosperity, and even democracy itself. No one in the mainstream media will tell you this, not so much because they do not see as because they do not bl**dy care.
The 33-page Note (FCCC/AWGLCA/2010/CRP.2) by the Chairman of the Ad-Hoc Working Group on Long-Term Co-operative Action under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, entitled Possible elements of the outcome, reveals all. Or, rather, it reveals nothing, unless one understands what the complex, obscure jargon means. All UNFCCC documents at the Cancun conference, specifically including Possible elements of the outcome, are drafted with what is called transparent impenetrability. The intention is that the documents should not be understood, but that later we shall be told they were in the public domain all the time, so what are we complaining about?

As he says, read it and weep.
Limbaugh brought this up in his 12/8/ broadcast the big 0 pledged 1+% of our GDP goes to this farce. Surprize nobody picked up on it.
I acknowledge that the news here on FR sometimes leans to the doom-n-gloom side, but I am more glad every day that I’m not living in the US right now. And every day, I wonder when I’ll feel good about moving back, and every day that date seems to recede further into the future.
That distant date will be when large quantities of people start sneaking into the USA with plans to live there long term. Oh, wait....

I live in Australia, and I can almost guarantee that our Climate Change Minister (have you ever hard of anything so ridiculous?) will sign us up to whatever is put in front of him. Not just the U.S. will suffer the consequences.
.....the UN is now legislating crabwise, as the European Union does, with a series of successive annual agreements, the last of which was the Copenhagen Accord, each transferring more power and wealth from individual nations to its supranational bureaucracy. The latest of these agreements is being finalized here in Cancun. The European Union, which has stealthily stamped out democracy over the past half-century by a series of treaties each transferring a little more power and wealth from elected hands in the member states to unelected hands in Brussels, has been advising the Secretariat on how to do the same on a global scale.
With Wikileaks diverting attention from what's happening in Cancun we are not seeing coverage of the powers that be taking over more and more. They continue to move forward behind the scenes....
“Since the Chairmans note is very long, I shall summarize the main points:
Finance: Western countries will jointly provide $100 billion a year by 2020 to an unnamed new UN Fund. To keep this sum up with GDP growth, the West may commit itself to pay 1.5% of GDP to the UN each year. That is more than twice the 0.7% of GDP that the UN has recommended the West to pay in foreign aid for the past half century. Several hundred of the provisions in the Chairmans note will impose huge financial costs on the nations of the West.
The world-government Secretariat: In all but name, the UN Conventions Secretariat will become a world government directly controlling hundreds of global, supranational, regional, national and sub-national bureaucracies. It will receive the vast sum of taxpayers money ostensibly paid by the West to the Third World for adaptation to the supposed adverse consequences of imagined (and imaginary) global warming.
Bureaucracy: Hundreds of new interlocking bureaucracies answerable to the world-government Secretariat will vastly extend its power and reach. In an explicit mirroring of the European Unions method of enforcing the will of its unelected Kommissars on the groaning peoples of that benighted continent, the civil servants of nation states will come to see themselves as servants of the greater empire of the Secretariat, carrying out its ukases and diktats whatever the will of the nation states governments. Many of the new bureaucracies are disguised as capacity-building in developing countries. This has nothing to do with growing the economies or industries of poorer nations. It turns out to mean the installation of hundreds of bureaucratic offices answerable to the Secretariat in numerous countries around the world. Who pays? You do, gentle taxpayer. Babylon, Byzantium, the later Ottoman Empire, the formidable bureaucracy of Nazi Germany, the vast empire of 27,000 paper-shufflers at the European Union: add all of these together and multiply by 100 and you still do not reach the sheer size, cost, power and reach of these new subsidiaries of the Secretariat. In addition to multiple new bureaucracies in every one of the 193 states parties to the Convention ...

I talked to a socialist who worked for one of the international agencies, one of the development banks. She was absolutely shocked that I actually paid taxes. None of her friends did.
We knew that.
World government...it’s not just your father’s paranoid delusion anymore.
Monckton gets it. Too late. Sheeple and keyboard jockeys are not going to turn this around.
Bingo! Thanks Seadog Bytes. Who does (the former) Number Two work for?
Don’t be downhearted. The Tea party can beat this, the DREAM act, anything.
Keyboard jockeys will see as much of the fight as anyone.
One World Government ping.
END TIMES PING LIST PING NWO
Thanks for the ping!
Unilateral Economic Disarmament... a perfect description.
Savoring the thought that goes into the ping description is worth the price of the ticket.
Dat’s alotta China!
