Here is why you might think more about a president of the United States that favors a stronger UN and even a world government along with new “climate change” rules, regulations and spending…. We pay: they play….
Don’t forget this is the same UN whose leader called the U.S. a “deadbeat” nation a few short weeks ago:
From March 12: “
Speaking at a monthly briefing with reporters this morning, United Nations Secretary-General (SG) Ban Ki-Moon acknowledged that he referred to the United States as a “deadbeat” donor during a meeting yesterday with members of Congress. A Republican on the House Foreign Relations Committee, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen was clearly irked telling reporters later that the United States contributes “a whole lot of taxpaper dollars to the UN and doesn’t deserve to be called a deadbeat.”

The 16-page note, obtained by FOX News, will be distributed to participants at a mammoth negotiating session that starts on March 29 in Bonn, Germany, the first of three sessions intended to hammer out the actual commitments involved in the new deal.
In the stultifying language that is normal for important U.N. conclaves, the negotiators are known as the “Ad Hoc Working Group On Further Commitments For Annex I Parties Under the Kyoto Protocol.” Yet the consequences of their negotiations, if enacted, would be nothing short of world-changing.
