FOR THOSE WHO read this article, but are not knowledgeable about George Soros and his domestic and global gun control (read “confiscation”) agenda, here is a short primer.
It was through Soros` Open Society Institute (OSI) that he bankrolled world gun-ban strategist Rebecca Peters to oversee the May 2000 Million Mom March (MMM). Soros brought Peters, called “our fairy godmother” by MMM organizers, to the United States from Australia to work on both domestic and international gun control schemes. Peters had leapt to the world gun-ban stage as the individual who created Australia`s shameful 1996-97 collection and destruction of virtually all registered semi-auto and pump long guns from licensed collectors, shooters and hunters.
Peters bragged that this firearm roundup was “very, very moderate” and mirrored her plans for a global effort. Here`s how she had earlier described her “moderate” disarmament program, which naturally followed her licensing and registration schemes: “The National Firearms Agreement recognized the inherent inappropriateness of these highly dangerous weapons and took away nearly 700,000 of them to be melted down into soup cans and bus-stop benches.” (Emphasis added.)
As a reward for Peter`s work in America, Soros helped to create and fund her International Action Network on Small Arms (IANSA) to take the civil disarmament crusade worldwide and to concentrate on the United Nations as Soros` instrument for civilian arms destruction.
In the meantime, OSI and Soros poured millions of dollars into punitive lawsuits to bankrupt America`s firearm industry. Those suits were ultimately overturned in the federal appeals courts, yet they still have cost consumers millions of dollars.
If Al Gore had won the 2000 election, it is extremely likely that Soros and Peters would
have succeeded in effecting a global gun-ban treaty trumping American sovereignty. But George W. Bush`s election--and his representative to the United Nations, John Bolton--foiled the Soros-Peters plans, and the treaty was shelved.
Yet, like the Terminator, the treaty will “be back” if Barack Obama assumes the presidency.
Bolton`s bold defense of the Second Amendment from international attack most likely inspired Soros operatives in successfully blocking his Senate confirmation as President Bush`s U.N. ambassador in 2006. (Ultimately, Bolton served at that U.N. post temporarily for the duration of one Congress only--as a “recess appointee.”)
Under the heading “United Nations Reform” on Soros` OSI website was a well-funded campaign titled “Stop Bolton!”--which involved a raft of domestic organizations and individuals lobbying the U.S. Senate--on Soros` nickel--and raising a huge cloud of major media dust.
Among those successfully creating a “progressive” grassroots firestorm opposing Ambassador Bolton`s nomination was--surprise!--Podesta`s Center for American Progress.
A U.N. gun-ban treaty is important to Soros. Very, very important.
If Obama wins, you can bet the U.S. will be rolling over for a sovereignty-busting treaty as a down payment on a huge political debt.
How about Rebecca Peters--who claims American citizenship--sitting as an Obama representative to the United Nations?
Very scary--yet very possible.
