Obama's global green tax
We are now beginning to grasp the definition and the scope of the words "new world order," an expression inserted into the U.S. political vocabulary by the first President Bush. He never defined it, leaving that task to his successors, and President Barack Obama is only too glad to expand its meaning.

But the liberals want us to believe that climate change is also caused by gases expelled when humans burn so-called fossil fuels. The U.N. created an Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to push the U.N.'s political agenda wrapped up in climate-change ideology.
While President Bush Jr. was more focused on building a North American Union without borders between countries, during his two terms, the two Democratic presidential candidates he defeated, Al Gore and John Kerry, became key players in the U.N.'s climate-change politics. It soon became obvious that U.N. climate change was an attack on the American standard of living as well as on our sovereignty.

Gore and Kerry attended several U.N. climate-change meetings. Gore won the Nobel Peace Prize for his climate-change advocacy. Kerry used his wife's mega-wealth to wine and dine university and school officials to get them to skew academic curriculum. This was supposed to make students believe that climate change is a terrible threat and that we must abandon our current energy sources.

By the time Barack Obama became president, it also became obvious that U.N. climate-change politics are not only a vehicle to serve his goal of "fundamentally transforming the United States," but also his goal of spreading the wealth. Obama seeks to spread the wealth not only from taxpaying to non-taxpaying Americans, but also from America to Third World countries.

Government's entry into the field of trying to control climate by regulations, taxes and handouts is a convenient cover not only for deliberately lowering our U.S. standard of living, but also for imposing socialism on America. So most of the $800 billion Obama stimulus was dedicated to exchanging America's dependable energy sources from coal, oil, natural gas and nuclear to less efficient, less dependable and more expensive green energies such as wind and solar.

A case in point is the scandal of Solyndra Inc. This California-based company is a very politically correct green firm making solar panels.

Meanwhile, Obama is working with the U.N. to fundamentally transform America with a new global tax. His appointee Marisa Lago is attending U.N. meetings to design a proposed global tax to build a "Green Climate Fund."

This fund is designed to pay for greening the global economy, estimated to cost $1.9 trillion annually for the next 40 years, or $76 trillion.

Initially, it is expected to raise at least $100 billion a year, but if the U.N.'s tax design is approved in December at a U.N. meeting in Durban, South Africa, it could increase exponentially from $100 billion to $1.9 trillion annually, or more. It will be an indirect tax, making it impossible to opt out, although the U.N. is planning to reimburse Third World countries in another underhanded device to transfer U.S. wealth to Third World countries.
