"It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds." - Samuel Adams
Norman Thomas, in his book What Is Our Destiny? (1944)
"The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism, but under the name of Liberalism they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program until one day American will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened.

Question....what is the status of this bill or treaty....??
Subject: Obama Finds Legal Way Around The 2nd Amendment dtd 3/25/2010
If This Passes, There Will Be WAR and this is what they had anticipated long ago. Just got this...pass it far & wide.
On Wednesday Obama Took the First Major Step in a Plan to Ban All Firearms in the US On Wednesday Obama took first major step in a plan to ban all firearms in the US. The Obama admin intends to force gun control and a complete ban on all weapons for US citizens through the signing of international treaties with foreign nations. By signing international treaties on gun control, the Obama admin can use the US State Dept to bypass the normal legislative process in Congress. Once the US Govt signs these intl treaties, all US citizens will be subject to those gun laws created by foreign govts. These are laws that have been developed and promoted by organizations such as the UN and individuals such as George Soros and Michael Bloomberg. The laws are designed and intended to lead to the complete ban and confiscation of all firearms. The Obama admin is attempting to use tactics and methods of gun control that will inflict major damage to our 2nd Amendment before US citizens even understand what has happened. Obama can appear before the public and tell them that he does not intend to pursue any legislation (in the US, ha-ha) that will lead to new gun control laws, while cloaked in secrecy, his Sec of State, Hillary Clinton is committing the US to intl treaties and foreign gun control laws. Does that mean Obama is telling the truth? What it means is that there will be no publicized gun control debates in the media or votes in Congress. We will wake up one day and find that the US has signed a treaty that prohibits firearm and ammunition manufacturers from selling to the public. We will wake up another morning and find that the US has signed a treaty that prohibits any transfer of firearm ownership. And then, we will wake up yet another morning and find that the US has signed a treaty that requires US citizens to deliver any firearm they own to the local govt collection and destruction center or face imprisonment. As sure as govt health care will be forced on us by the Obama admin through whatever means necessary, so will gun control.

Please forward this message to others who may be concerned about the direction in which our country is headed. This is a very serious matter!
Silence will lead us to Socialism!!! Apparently national controls as supported by the Bush Admin. didn't work so now they are going international. FOLKS, there are over 2 million UN Troops inside the US preparing to execute confiscation of weapons when the signal is given.
U.S. reverses stance on treaty to regulate arms trade

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States reversed policy on Wednesday and said it would back launching talks on a treaty to regulate arms sales as long as the talks operated by consensus, a stance critics said gave every nation a veto.
The decision, announced in a statement released by the U.S. State Department, overturns the position of former President George W. Bush's administration, which had opposed such a treaty on the grounds that national controls were better.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the United States would support the talks as long as the negotiating forum, the so-called Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty, "operates under the rules of consensus decision-making."
"Consensus is needed to ensure the widest possible support for the Treaty and to avoid loopholes in the Treaty that can be exploited by those wishing to export arms irresponsibly," Clinton said in a written statement.
While praising the Obama administration's decision to overturn the Bush-era policy and to proceed with negotiations to regulate conventional arms sales, some groups criticized the U.S. insistence that decisions on the treaty be unanimous.
"The shift in position by the world's biggest arms exporter is a major breakthrough in launching formal negotiations at the United Nations in order to prevent irresponsible arms transfers," Amnesty International and Oxfam International said in a joint statement.
However, they said insisting that decisions on the treaty be made by consensus "could fatally weaken a final deal."
"Governments must resist US demands to give any single state the power to veto the treaty as this could hold the process hostage during the course of negotiations. We call on all governments to reject such a veto clause," said Oxfam International's policy adviser Debbie Hillier.
The proposed legally binding treaty would tighten regulation of, and set international standards for, the import, export and transfer of conventional weapons.
Supporters say it would give worldwide coverage to close gaps in existing regional and national arms export control systems that allow weapons to pass onto the illicit market.
Nations would remain in charge of their arms export control arrangements but would be legally obliged to assess each export against criteria agreed under the treaty. Governments would have to authorize transfers in writing and in advance.
The main opponent of the treaty in the past was the U.S. Bush administration, which said national controls were better. Last year, the United States accounted for more than two-thirds of some $55.2 billion in global arms transfer deals.
Arms exporters China, Russia and Israel abstained last year in a U.N. vote on the issue.
The proposed treaty is opposed by conservative U.S. think tanks like the Heritage Foundation, which said last month that it would not restrict the access of "dictators and terrorists" to arms but would be used to reduce the ability of democracies such as Israel to defend their people.
The U.S. lobbying group the National Rifle Association has also opposed the treaty.
A resolution before the U.N. General Assembly is sponsored by seven nations including major arms exporter Britain. It calls for preparatory meetings in 2010 and 2011 for a conference to negotiate a treaty in 2012.

TEA PARTIES: You are being set up for failure. Tea Parties formed by Counsel for National Policy, under the CFR, and the CFR is under the Royal Institute for International Affairs (RIIA) a part of the Roundtable controlled by the Committee of the 300, Illuminati/World Government Agenda. You people better WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! damn it.....
Alex Jones (Pro-Jesuit/CIA trained and Zionist shill), Ron Paul (member of the Masons and secret societies), Naomi Wolf (Rhodes Scholar), [Jordan Maxwell, Ickes, Tsarion, Woodcock, Rense; they are part of a "Fifth Column Strategy" to tell truth but mislead in subtle ways or actually fuel the need to revolt with force, or play the game I'm on your side, voice the issues but do NOTHING ABOUT it but give lip service like Ron Paul and Alex Jones. Michael Moore is or was, managed by Ari Emanuel, brother of Obama's Chief of Staff,
Rahm Emanuel who is the White House Chief of Staff. Prior to joining President Barack H. Obama's administration, Emanuel served in the House of Representatives, representing the fifth district of Illinois, and was Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus. As an advocate for Chicago's working families, Emanuel served on the House Ways and Means Committee, which oversees taxes, trade, Social Security, and Medicare issues.
Appointed by then House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Emanuel served as Chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee for the 2006 cycle. Under his leadership, Democrats gained 30 seats in the House without losing a single incumbent, and ushered in a new Democratic majority for the first time in more than a decade.
Back to the article, you will find the Heritage Foundation [in the article], is part of Travistock [formed 1921 who also educated and trained Hitler after WWI. Travistock also designed our "1960's culture change" during study in the 1950's. This was first accomplished by integrating Rock and Roll using the Beetles as the beginning of a very carefully planned set of criteria and an agenda that would result in major social change in our culture, using drugs brought into the country by CIA contractors [via South American, Mexico and later Vietnam], specific terminology [peace sign, slang, occult signs and symbols, bringing in quietly the New Age Concepts for permanent adaptation; the Elvis shock was a design set by them, fact. Then afterwards there was a flurry of International Rock Stars set as a strategy in order to continue the renovation and eventual destruction of our culture from the inside. The Feminist movement was in FACT, financed by the Rockefeller Foundation. This concept is older than you want to even know. You people better get off your butts and educate yourself, and get out of denial, and instead of blasting it as conspiracy theory and wake up in a socialist country, get active.
"Communism and Socialism all know that they can not survive with strong families. Strong families make strong communities, and strong communities keep government power in check. Break down the families, and the door is wide open to centralizing power in government. Once families break down through divorce, welfare, cohabitation, etc. government gets more and more involved in everyday life. More and more centralized government control.
"Destroy the family," as Lenin said, "and you destroy society." Thereby he merely repeated what Socrates had said before and what Friedrich Engels and Karl Marx put into words. Lenin set out to do just that, hoping that a new society -- with the State as the ultimate father -- could be constructed.
If anyone wants the details of this incredible conspiracy it is available. Many will remain the frog boiling in the water even if they have 20+ years as intelligence service, Military, government, scientists.....have not one clue about this conspiracy and will end up in the boiling water when we need your influence and knowledge in this truth. People blast the "so called conspiracy theorist" without ever checking it out. Traitors like Ron Paul and Alex Jones who pretend to be on our side have many fooled.....and so we just maintain our HERO WORSHIP without questioning their real loyalities.
