    I have to admit I underestimated political treachery when I posted another thread about the Arms Trade Treaty:

    http://www.usmessageboard.com/military/232707-small-guns-big-military.html

    Thanks to Dick Morris I am starting to understand the infighting taking place in the White House. It must be a blood bath every day for Morris to say Bill Clinton will vote for Romney:

    Dick Morris: "Clinton Is Going To Cast His Ballot For Mitt Romney" | RealClearPolitics

    My gut instinct is screaming “Dick Morris had permission to go on national TV and say how Clinton will vote.”

    These excerpts from an article by Joan R. Neubauer tells me that treachery triggered by the Arms Trade Treaty increased the 2008 friction between the Clintons and Hussein:


    And this:

    It’s not that Bill & Hill oppose the ATT. Hussein and the Clintons would disarm law-abiding Americans in a heartbeat if they could. In fact Hillary Clinton, said the United States would support talks towards ratifying the treaty. What changed at the last minute?

    For one thing, the Clintons realized her name on that anti-sovereignty treaty would come back to haunt them when she makes another run at the White House. A president can weather the storm if any part of an unratified treaty is implemented in a second term. As a presidential candidate Clinton’s name on an unratified treaty would drop her in deep do-do in 2016. Had Hussein ordered her to sign the ATT the obvious question would be “Why didn’t you resign rather than sign a document that clearly attacks the Second Amendment and the American people?”

    Luckily for the Clintons political expediency took a hand. Hussein backed off:

    Second Amendment Safe—For Now

    By NOT signing the ATT Clinton and Hussein dodged the bullet. Pun intended.

    Finally, I don’t doubt Brit Hume’s take on Hussein and Bill Clinton:

    But to me it looks like the S.O.S. is being sent from a leaking lifeboat not a ship of state.

    Good lord! I always thought nobody could make Hussein look worse than he is. I was wrong:

    Hillary Clinton: America's Worst Secretary of State
    By Ken Blackwell and Bob Morrison

    Articles: Hillary Clinton: America's Worst Secretary of State

    I have one slight disagreement with the article. It does not list Madeleine Albright, Colin Powell, and Condoleezza Rice along with William Jennings Bryan and Cyrus Vance.

    And the real sad thing is that many Americans think Mitt Romney will put a stop to all this. But he's just a puppet too.

    Bob Barr does more than cut up the Arms Trade Treaty. Barr hits a few other high spots. The first has been obvious for decades:

    I get Barr’s humor, but I would warn that UN incompetence is a good thing. A competent UN is infinitely more dangerous than an incompetent United Nations.

    Shelf life is less obvious:


    Since withdrawing from the UN is unlikely, I’ve suggested a time limit to eliminate treaty shelf life. If it is not ratified in the two years after it is signed it is dead forever. If it is not ratified before the president whose administration signed it leaves office it is dead forever. Hell, there is a treaty Jimmy Carter’s administration signed sitting on the shelf. Kids born in 1980, the year the Carter Administration signed the CEDAW, are now 32 years old. I’m pretty sure that 99 percent of Americans born since 1980 know nothing about the attacks on American freedoms incorporated in CEDAW, yet it can be pulled off the shelf and ratified at any time.

    Here’s a Romney connection:

    Instead of Romney looking for a vice president in the US Senate with foreign policy “expertise” acquired by sitting on a committee, he should pick John Bolton who has a proven foreign policy track record defending America’s sovereignty. Bolton for secretary of state if not vice president.

    Compare what is known about John Bolton to what is known about Warren Christopher, Madeleine Albright, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, and Hillary Clinton if you doubt me.

    Romney’s choice for vice president, and later the secretary of state, will tell Americans everything they need to know about his priorities.
