    Why are Republicans in Congress trying to help Barack Obama?

    Republicans allowed a bill that carries his name, among nine others, to pass the Senate Foreign Relations Committee by voice vote last week without any hearings. That means there was no roll-call vote so no member can be held accountable. The same bill passed the House by voice vote last year.

    The Obama bill passed out of committee with the cooperation of the co-sponsor, Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind. A Rhodes scholar like former President Bill Clinton, Lugar has never seen a United Nations enhancement he didn't like.

    Obama's costly, dangerous and altogether bad bill (S. 2433), which could come up in the Senate any day, is called the Global Poverty Act. It would commit U.S. taxpayers to spend 0.7 percent of our Gross Domestic Product on foreign handouts, which is at least $30 billion over and above the exorbitant and wasted sums we already give away overseas.

    The bipartisan bill would require the president "to develop and implement a comprehensive strategy to further the United States foreign policy objective of promoting the reduction of global poverty, the elimination of extreme global poverty, and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goal of reducing by one-half the proportion of people worldwide, between 1990 and 2015, who live on less than $1 per day."

    (Column continues below)


    The bill's other co-sponsors include Sens. Joseph Biden, D-Del., Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., Chris Dodd, D-Conn., **** Durbin, D-Ill., Russ Feingold, D-Wis., Diane Feinstein, D-Calif., Charles Hagel, R-Neb., and Robert Mendez, D-N.J.

    We should be on guard any time politicians use the word "comprehensive," an umbrella word that always shades a lot of mischief. The notion that U.S. taxpayers should or could cut in half the number of people worldwide who live in poverty by 2015 is ridiculous.

    The scariest phrase in the bill is "Millennium Development Goal." That refers to the declaration adopted by the United Nations Millennium Assembly and Summit in 2000 (blessed by President Bill Clinton), which called for the "eradication of poverty" by "redistribution (of) wealth and land," cancellation of "the debts of developing countries," and "a fair distribution of the earth's resources" (from the United States to the rest of the world, of course).

    The Millennium project is monitored by Jeffrey D. Sachs, a Columbia University economist. In 2005, he presented then-U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan with a 3,000-page report based on the research of 265 so-called poverty specialists.

    Sachs' document criticized the United States for giving only $16.3 billion a year in global anti-poverty aid. He argued that we should spend an additional $30 billion a year to reach the 0.7 percent target the U.N. set for the United Sates in 2000.

    Sachs says that the only way to force the United States to commit that much money is by a global tax, such as a tax on fossil fuels. Empowering the United Nations to impose a direct international tax on Americans has been a U.N. goal ever since the 1995 Copenhagen Summit embraced the so-called Tobin Tax.

    By adopting the Millennium Goals in 2000, the U.N. escalated its demands to impose international taxes. Specifically, the Millennium called for a "currency transfer tax," a "tax on the rental value of land and natural resources," a "royalty on worldwide fossil energy projection oil, natural gas, coal," "fees for the commercial use of the oceans, fees for airplane use of the skies, fees for use of the electromagnetic spectrum, fees on foreign exchange transactions, and a tax on the carbon content of fuels."

    It doesn't bother U.N. sycophants that most U.S. handouts go into the hands of corrupt dictators who hate us and vote against us in the U.N., and that only 30 percent of American foreign aid ever reaches the poor. U.N. bureaucrats accuse the United States of being "stingy" in its handouts to underdeveloped countries.

    There is much more to the Millennium Goals than merely extorting more money from U.S. taxpayers. The goals set forth a comprehensive plan to put the United States under U.N. global governance.

    These goals include a "standing peace force" (i.e., a U.N. standing army), a "U.N. Arms Register" of all small arms and light weapons, "peace education" covering "all levels from preschool through university," and "political control of the global economy." The goals call for implementing all U.N. treaties that the United States has never ratified, all of which set up U.N. monitoring committees to compromise U.S. sovereignty.

    To achieve this level of control over U.S. domestic law, the plan calls for "strengthening the United Nations for the 21st century" by "eliminating" the veto and permanent membership in the Security Council. The goal is to reduce U.S. influence to one out of 192 nations, so we would have merely the same vote as Cuba.

    The Global Poverty Act would be a giant step toward the Millennium Goals of global governance and international taxes on Americans. Tell your senators to kill this un-American bill.

    To me it looks like Hussein is getting set up for an election. Good stuff for a campaign against him showing just what he's all about!

    Not that I'm pro-Obama, or even anti-poverty or anything...but the warlords that we so love to hate often gain a great deal of power in the impoverished bowels of the world, by portraying themselves as Robin Hood, and ourselves as greedy. This has been, and continues to be, a significant image problem for us. Logically, we shouldn't really have to worry about it - we should be able to do business as we want, and disregard everything else. Human nature is different though, and tends to resent imbalances.

    We can drop $30 B a year on this and possibly have some success...or many trillions a year on occupations that are lukewarmishly effective at best. Prevention is a lot less expensive than a fight or a cleanup job. Although it might seem like a handout, I'd rather have that than have to fight these people later on because they've been convinced that we're the Great Satan.

    On a microscale, in your own town, would you yourself rather go through some hassle to be a pillar of the community and see to it that the schools stay good, people keep their jobs and whatnot? Or would you rather "mind your own business" (which is absolutely your right, too) for 20 years while the community falls in, and you've got to face hostile teenagers with firearms?

    Sure, we can take them - but is it really worth it?

    I agree in principal, it sounds nice and all that but,...

    What about when we give those billions of dollars in aid and they still call us the Great Satan and the warlords are still in power? Anyone here remember a little incident back in 1993 called Somalia? They are a prime example of the abuse I am talking about here. We shipped in billions of dollars in aid and the warlords took it away and even killed NGO aid workers and every convoy and distribution site had to have military guards on it. Not worth a penny we spent nor a drop of blood we shed there no way. I would not even bother to p*$$ on those people if they were on fire. I am not in favor of any further foreign entanglements we have too much on our plate as it is. With out making this into something of a commentary on the war here I will say we got it right in 1991 in that we came, we saw, we kicked their a$$ and we left. That is the way to do business, get in get out. Let the UN or whoever come in and fix it up and re-decorate all they want. We should not be in that business.

    I am not convinced any amount of aid will ever convince those that hate us to love us. Remember the earthquakes in Afghanistan and the border region of Pakistan over a year ago? Remember how military air lift was the only way to get life sustaining aid to those remote villages? Well guess what? They still hate us nothing has changed. Same thing after the Tsunami in Indonesia they were happy to take our aid then told us to get the hell out. Remember the protests in Jakarta right after we launched the invasion of Aftghanstan? The night club explosion in Balli? Yeah they still hate us. We must get over it we can not make them love us and they are going to hate us no matter what we do.

    We Americans just need to get over the fact that some parts of the world hate us and get on with our lives. There really is no law prohibiting hatred in the outside world. It has been a motivating force used by governments the world over for thousands of years. That's just the way it is, plain and simple.

    The federal government continues to steal money from the tax payers and throw it away on everything from a to z both in our own country and over seas. It makes now difference which party is in power the wastefull spending keeps on keeping on and the national debt continues to sky rocket.
