    Senate bill s. 2433 the global poverty act

    IT'S ALREADY STARTED FOLKS….BE AWARE OF WHAT IS GOING ON……….

    http://www.opencongress.org/bill/110-s2433/text
    SENATE BILL S. 2433 THE GLOBAL POVERTY ACT
    According to David Bossie, President of the group 'Citizens United for American Sovereignty', based out of Merrifield Virginia , website: http://www.citizensunited.org/
    The above-mentioned Senate Bill (S. 2433) is a piece of legislation in the works that all Americans need to know about and know now!
    This bill, sponsored by none other than Sen. Barack Obama, with the backing of Joe Biden on the Foreign Relations Committee, and liberal democrats in Congress, is nothing short of a massive giveaway of American wealth around the world, and a betrayal of the public trust, because, if passed, this bill would give over many aspects of our sovereignty to the United Nations.
    The noble sounding name of this bill, 'The Global Poverty Act' is actually a Global Tax, payable to the United Nations, that will be required of all American taxpayers. If passed in the Senate, the House has already passed it, this bill would require the U.S. to increase our foreign aid by $65 BILLION per year, or $845 BILLION over the next 13 years! That's on top of the billions of dollars in foreign aid we already pay out!
    In addition to the economic burdens this potential law would place on our precarious economy, the bill, if passed in the Senate, would also endanger our constitutionally protected rights and freedoms by obligating us to meet certain United Nations mandates.
    According to Senator Obama, we should establish these United Nations' goals as benchmarks for U.S. spending. What are they?
    The creation of a U.N. International Criminal Court having the power to try and convict American citizens and soldiers without any protection from the U.S. Constitution.
    A standing United Nations Army forcing U.S. soldiers to serve under U.N. command.
    A Gun Ban on all small arms and light weapons --which would repeal our Second Amendment right to bear arms.
    The ratification of the ' Kyoto ' global warming treaty and numerous other anti-American measures.
    Recently, the Senate Subcommittee on Foreign Relations (where Sen. Joe Biden sits) approved this plan by a voice vote without any discussion! Why all the secrecy? If Senators Obama and Biden are so proud of this legislation, then why don't they bring it out into the light of day and let the American people have a look at it instead of hiding it behind closed doors and sneaking it through Congress for late night votes.
    It may be only a matter of time before this dangerous legislation reaches a floor vote in the full body of the Senate.
    Please write or call, email your representatives, the White House, the media, or anyone you think will listen, and express your opinions regarding this Global Tax giveaway and betrayal of the American people at a time when our nation and our people are already heavily burdened with the threats to our freedoms and economic prosperity.

    This sounds familiar. A search of "global poverty act" finds...

    All of these have discussed the subject. I believe the first has the most detailed discussion about it.

    Why not read the text of the bill and see if any of that stuff is in it for yourself.

    Here is a link to the bill.

    I don't see anything in there about global courts, small-arms bans, or a global 'tax'. What I see is the US giving money (through taxes levied by Congress) to the UN.

    Don't confuse us with the facts!
    The facts are indisputable. There is more data supporting the benefits of Conceal Carry than there is supporting global warming. If you choose ignorance, in light of all the evidence, in order to bolster your irrational fear of guns, you are a greater threat to society than any gun owner.

    Robin Hood has arrived!!! Even if this doesn't pass you just have to cringe with disgust at this elitist mentality and the same, we are evil because our country works crap. We are the most giving country on the planet, look up how much Joe Biden gave to charity last year.

    Our nation's sovereignty has never been more at risk. I figure they will keep chipping away at it with or without us knowing and one day we will be a light blue nation.

    Since it is Christmas, can't we just make a present of our National Debt to the UN?

    Over the last 10 years he has made approx. $2,500,000.00. His charitable contributions during that time has totaled less than $4,000.00.
    Very selfish with his own money but very generous with everybody elses money. Typical democrat.

    Remember with Clinton as SoS and a big supporter of the U.N., including their desire to ban small arms world wide, the chances of these types of things increase. We must remain aware of proposed bills and inundate our reps with letters when required. They will need to be constantly reminded they can be voted out if they vote the wrong way.

    The folks that own federal obligations have no recourse against the federal government - thus no foreclosures - because the obligations are issued only on the full faith of the feds - there is no security underlying the debt.

    Not like a house with a mortgage.

    The most they could do is stop buying federal obligations - which is not likely. We're still the strongest country in the world financially.

    The likelihood of this bill moving is zero, but as noted, there will be reincarnations, probably in smaller chunks.
