Global Warming, Global Taxes
by Thomas P. Kilgannon - November 12th, 2010 - The American Spectator
Within 72 hours of the Tea Party's "shellacking" of Obama and Pelosi, Ban Ki-moon, the UN Secretary-General, called for global taxation of the American public -- an idea endorsed by a high-level official of the Obama administration. Ban must not have been watching television on Election Night, because he missed the voters' rejection of big government, higher taxes, and out of control spending... Among the panelists recommending global taxes are George Soros, the financier of socialist change, and Larry Summers, President Obama's economic advisor.
The group's report begins with the claim that "Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time." Not true. There is doubt among scientists as to whether or not the earth's temperature is warming. There is even more skepticism attached to the theory that human activity could cause such a phenomenon. It matters not.
It is clear the emergency the United Nations is concerned with is the possibility that Obama will not be President long enough to get these taxes on Americans passed. Therefore they are in a panic to make it happen now.
