National sovereignty is under threat with the United Nations and its gun rules, the Law of the Sea Treaty and its worldwide taxes, Agenda 21, the Bilderbergers and the increasing strength of other global authorities.
What would America be like to be under a global government? What about human rights, and would the U.S. be demonized to set an example? Who sets standards for the environment, finance and education, and who can be delegated to make decisions? And does the concept of a nation-state still exist and still matter?
Those issue will be on the agenda at the American Freedom Alliance’s invitation-only Global Governance vs. National Sovereignty conference.
It will be held June 10-11 at the Intercontinental Century City Hotel in Los Angeles. Registration details are online.
The event is attracting the “political and intellectual leaders from North America, Europe, Israel and Australia to examine whether the forces of global governance are successfully challenging the very concept of national sovereignty in the U.S., Europe, and Israel.”
The speakers will be a who’s who list:
- Ambassador John Bolton: Lawyer and diplomat who has served in several presidential administrations. Currently he’s a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and a regular contributor to the Wall Street Journal.
- Czech Republican President Vaclav Klaus: He has published more than 50 books and is the recipient of many doctoral degrees and international awards. He’s sought after for his views on inflation, monetary policy, economics and other subjects.
- Australian Prime Minister John Howard: In office from 1996 to 2007, he previously was the government’s treasurer and under his premiership, Australia sustained the longest period of continuous growth in its history.
- Stephen K. Bannon: A former vice president of Goldman Sachs, he now is executive chairman of Breitbart News LLC. He’s an award-winning filmmaker of such titles as “In The Face of Evil” and “The Undefeated.”
- Stephen Coughlin: A fellow with the American Freedom Alliance, he’s a former consultant to the Intelligence Directorate of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He’s also an expert on Islamic law.
- Nonie Darwish: An Egyptian-American human rights activist and founder of Arabs for Israel. She’s written, “Now They Call Me Infidel” and “The Devil We Don’t Know: The Dark Side of the Revolutions in the Middle East.
- Avi Davis: Journalist, attorney, filmmaker and president of the American Freedom Alliance.
Other speakers will include John Fonte, Bonnie Glick, Larry Greenfield, Steve Goves, Anne Herzberg, Joe R. Hicks, Elan Journo, Donald Kochan, Rosa Koire, Mitsana Leitner, Reggie Littlejohn, Robert C. O’Brien, Roberta Seid, Michael Shaw, Roger L. Simon, Gerald Steinberg, Eugene Volokh and John Yoo.
“As we enter the second decade of the 21st century, an epic struggle seems to be developing between the forces of global governance and American constitutional democracy. Transnationalists in the United Nations and the European Union, but more importantly among America’s elites, are seeking to establish a ‘global rule of law’ which would make American constitutional law subservient to a global authority,” say the promoters.
The topics will include the rise of transnational law in the U.S. Supreme Court, the United Nations’ role in an assault on national sovereignty and human rights organizations’ agendas.
“The answers to these questions may well define the kind of country in which American citizens can expect to reside for the remainder of this century.”
Davis, in an online commentary, wrote that the growing surge of internationalism “has naturally put the globalist agenda on a collision course with constitutional democracy.”
“It is fitting to remember that H.G. Wells, who died in 1946 just months after the defeat of Nazi Germany, lived to see the devastation that Britain’s policies of appeasement brought upon the West. But strangely enough, his 1933 book, which had accurately predicted the onset of the Second World War, failed to predict the causes of that war – proposing that it would be Poland who would be the aggressor against an innocent Germany, not the other way around.
“In this there is an important lesson for the modern world: In a brutal time, we are lost when we don’t respond immediately to obvious threats as soon as they appear. The global governance movement is one of those threats. We ignore it at our peril.”
In the balance will be whether America of the future pledges allegiance to the “United States” or the “United Nations,” whether or not the flag has 50 stars representing 50 states and to whom to citizens apply to protect their rights, the conference promoters say.
