Welcome global governance

If there were ever a question about Barack Obama's dedication to the concept of global governance, it has now been answered fully. His track record to date points toward his commitment to global governance; his speech to the United Nations removes all doubt.

In order to fully appreciate the effectiveness of Obama's pursuit, it is necessary to have an accurate picture of what global governance really is. The picture of global governance has been deliberately camouflaged by images of black helicopters and imagined blue-helmeted U.N. forces invading nations to enforce its mandates. This is the picture of global governance that its proponents want people to see so they will not see the real events that are constructing the actual global governance.

Global governance is a new procedure for creating and administering laws that govern all nations.

The United Nations consists of a General Assembly, the Security Council, and more than 1300 different agencies, councils, and commissions. Each of these governmental bodies is staffed by individuals who perform administrative duties dictated by the administrative hierarchy. In theory, the policies that guide the administrative hierarchy are established by the delegates from the U.N.'s 192 member nations. Keep in mind that these delegates are appointed officials of their government.

These delegates meet in luxurious facilities, and mouth platitudes and indictments and, more often than not, eventually approve whatever agenda the administrative staff has laid before them. This form of government is most accurately described as the "Administrator" form of government. To be absolutely clear: global governance is a system of rules and regulations, created by an administrative hierarchy, that dictate how individuals and organizations must behave. Each nation becomes an administrative unit responsible for implementation of U.N. rules and regulations.

This is the form of global governance first envisioned by Woodrow Wilson's alter-ego, Colonel Mandell House, who shared his vision with the world in his book titled "Philip Dru: Administrator." Wilson's League of Nations was designed to bring global governance to the world, but the United States balked, and rejected a global administrator.

Franklin Roosevelt, who served in Wilson's administration, surrounded himself with others from the Wilson Years, and began implementing an "Administrator" system of governance in the United States. With the help of a Democratic majority, Roosevelt pushed through Congress a laundry list of legislation that allowed the President, or Administrator, if you will, to undertake many programs for which there is no Constitutional authority. Eventually, the Supreme Court tightened the reins and slowed the transformation of U.S. government. But not before Roosevelt reconstructed the League of Nations using a new name the United Nations.

It is significant that Obama quoted Roosevelt in his speech to the U.N.: "We have learned to be citizens of the world," said Roosevelt. It is significant that Obama, campaigning in Berlin, told his audience that "I come to you as a citizen of the world." Since assuming office as President, he has acted like Philip Dru's Administrator, campaigning for the position of Administrator of the world.

Obama's actions in office are similar to Roosevelt's actions in office, except Obama appears to be on steroids. While relying on his teleprompter to mouth platitudes and indictments, Obama has ignored all Constitutional constraints, and surrounded himself with people who reek with Marxist ideology. With the help of a Democratic majority, he is pushing through Congress a laundry list of programs that will essentially change the American system of government just as he promised in his campaign.

Now he has told the world that America has not only "re-engaged" the United Nations, but that America is adopting policies that accept and embrace the global governance pursued by Mandell House, Woodrow Wilson, and Franklin Roosevelt. While still a Senator, Obama introduced legislation to comply with the U.N. request to increase America's contribution to international aid to .07 percent of GDP to nearly $845 billion per year.

In his speech to the U.N., Obama promised the world that America will reduce its defense capability, effectively leaving U.S security in the hands of the International Atomic Energy Agency. He is apparently content to leave the bad behavior of rogue nations such as Iran and North Korea to whatever "consequences" the U.N. may choose to administer.

To achieve "peace and security" in the world, Obama threw Israel under the proverbial bus, demanding that Israel stop construction of their settlements, return to pre-1967 boundaries, and provide "contiguous" territory for a Palestinian state. He forgets that Israel was quite happy with the pre-1967 borders until its neighbors invaded, a second time, in an all-out effort to push Israel into the sea. The additional land that Israel captured when it kicked Palestinian butt, was to provide a little more buffer between its sworn enemies and the sea.

Obama promised the world that America would bow to the U.N.'s global warming agenda and support the creation on a whole new set of administratively created rules and regulations to limit the behavior of individuals and organizations.

The final "pillar" of American sovereignty Obama promised to relinquish to the U.N. is the acceptance of a "...global economy that advances opportunity for all people." The global economy envisioned by Obama is not a free-market economy. It is a managed economy, managed by government administrators, when possible, and "approved" by either appointed delegates, or a willing Democratic majority when necessary.

When Obama promised to transform this government, he wasn't kidding. Welcome global governance.
