US Sovereignty, FEMA Camps, Natl'l Emergencies

Here are three potentially related topics that “the right” is concerned with:

  • The anticipated signing away of our national sovereignty by our President at the 2009 UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen this December
  • The alleged “FEMA Camps” and the fear that those who speak ill of our President or his policies may occupy them
  • The unpleasant possible implications of the President declaring an H1N1 “National Emergency.”

My take on these three: The “National Sovereignty Giveaway”: It is evil and is something we should all get stewed about. Contact your Congressmen. FEMA Camps: I’m not sure. I don’t know enough about them. The H1N1 “National Emergency”: I believe it is overkill, a political stunt to help the average citizen believe the President is doing something when in fact a national emergency is not necessary.

These three topics are discussed below by those who know more about them than I do.

Signing away of our national sovereignty

This video by Christopher Walter Monckton, 3rd Viscount Monckton of Brenchley is an eye opener. Watch it! Who is Lord Monckton? He is a British politician, business consultant, policy adviser, writer, columnist, inventor and hereditary peer. He served as an advisor to Margaret Thatcher's policy unit in the 1980s and invented the Eternity puzzle at the end of the 1990s. More recently, he has been at the forefront of debunking the “global warming” hype in Europe.

“FEMA Camps”

Some folks believe there are numerous FEMA camps around the nation poised to imprison…. who? Illegal aliens, unruly Muslims, or disenfranchised conservatives. Or in preparation for the anarchy that will result from the collapse of the dollar. What are your thoughts? Here is a representative video on the topic…

And last, but not least,

The H1N1 “National Emergency”

Many are skeptical about the Presidents motives for declaring a national emergency in response to a form of flu that has been shown to be relatively benign and which will likely make its rounds before half the population is vaccinated in December.

From the CDC:

Every year in the United States, on average:

  • 5% to 20% of the population gets the flu;
  • more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from flu-related complications; and
  • about 36,000 people die from flu-related causes.

So far, 1,158 deaths are attributed to the Swine Flu in the US.

Here is a representative expression of concern about our new, questionable “National Emergency.”
