UN would give ‘Mother Earth’ same rights as humans


UNITED NATIONS — Bolivia will this month table a draft United Nations treaty giving “Mother Earth” the same rights as humans — having just passed a domestic law that does the same for bugs, trees and all other natural things in the South American country.

The bid aims to have the UN recognize the Earth as a living entity that humans have sought to “dominate and exploit” — to the point that the “well-being and existence of many beings” is now threatened.

The wording may yet evolve, but the general structure is meant to mirror Bolivia’s Law of the Rights of Mother Earth, which Bolivian President Evo Morales enacted in January.

That document speaks of the country’s natural resources as “blessings,” and grants the Earth a series of specific rights that include rights to life, water and clean air; the right to repair livelihoods affected by human activities; and the right to be free from pollution.

It also establishes a Ministry of Mother Earth, and provides the planet with an ombudsman whose job is to hear nature’s complaints as voiced by activist and other groups, including the state.

Has the UN fell off the wagon again ?

Earth is not human .

Earth is a planet .

Every thinking person knows that !

If the UN do not think , is it any wonder that there is so much division in the world today thanks to the UN aganda of “…DIVIDE THE NATIONS BY CONFUSION …” ?????

Just another reason that the UN needs to be shuffled off to some third world country, either in Africa or South America. Anywhere but within our borders, and we, as a country, need to tell them not to bother calling us anymore, as we will be screening our calls.

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.” 29 And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit; you shall have them for food. 30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so. 31 And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, a sixth day.

So let me see, if I cut down a tree or step on an ant hill and I’ll be carted off to the Hague as a war criminal.

Only in the mind of a delusional liberal eco-nazi does that make sense.

The UN has zero Sovereignty and by the US Constution should be given NONE within the Borders of the US. Take the mischief and thievery to another venue. Period. The UN is NOT a Governing Body anywhere except by agreement on the Property in which their Office Space sits. The Termination of that agreement which serves no useful purpose is way past due.

Relocate the UN to Mogadishu or Djibouti. Withdraw the US from Membership as the UN has proven to be a soapbox for Tyrants, Tin Pot Dictators and a den of Corruption everywhere it has operated. It has long ago strayed from it’s Original Purpose and needs to go the way of Wilson’s League of Nations. Period.

If I am forced to present evidence of incompetence and misuse of resources. that may be the basis of a Reader Post that I can easily submit here. No World Body that has their track record of Embezzlement, Waste Fraud and Abuse of US Tax Dollars should be deserving of residency within Our Borders. Expel their “Diplomats” Now. Give them 30 days to vacate.

Boot the Rascals out now!

@Zac, #3:

Psalm 96:10-13 – Say among the nations, “The LORD reigns.” The world is firmly established, it cannot be moved; he will judge the peoples with equity. Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it; let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them. Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy; they will sing before the LORD, for he comes, he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples in his truth.

Isaiah 43:20-21 – The wild animals honor me, the jackals and the owls, because I provide water in the desert and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to my people, my chosen, the people I formed for myself that they may proclaim my praise.

Job 12:7-10 – But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.

Romans 1:19-20 – since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.

Leviticus 25:23-24 – The land must not be sold permanently, because the land is mine and you are but aliens and my tenants. Throughout the country that you hold as a possession, you must provide for the redemption of the land.

Isaiah 24:4-6 – The earth dries up and withers, the world languishes and withers, the exalted of the earth languish. The earth is defiled by its people; they have disobeyed the laws, violated the statutes and broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore a curse consumes the earth; its people must bear their guilt. Therefore earth’s inhabitants are burned up, and very few are left.

Jeremiah 2:7 – I brought you into a fertile land to eat its fruit and rich produce. But you came and defiled my land and made my inheritance detestable.

Revelation 11:18 – The nations were angry; and your wrath has come. The time has come for judging the dead, and for rewarding your servants the prophets and your saints and those who reverence your name, both small and great — and for destroying those who destroy the earth.

Greg, I was quoting the bible for the purpose of dramatization. I suppose I should take caution in doing so, because unless someone has an understanding of classical hebrew the bible is very hard to understand and nobody can decode classical hebrew, by the way, it has no punctuation. So that’s my argument against anyone who claims to understand the old testament.

As far as the new testament everything you just mentioned is debatable as to gods intention of humanity being held hostage by the EPA, or even environmentalism. I do think humans have dominion over the earth, that’s my point, this is a simple case of the UN wanting to have dominion over the US and its wrong!

If any of you doubt OT, I would suggest that you read a book called “Shake Hands With the Devil” by Lt Gen Romeo Dallaire, who was the Canadian General in charge of the UN “peacekeeping” force in Rwanda, 1993-94. It is a horror story that details the ignorance, incompetence and outright criminality of the UN diplomats and mission he answered to in the performance of his duties. An excellent example of organizational failure was Dallaire’s inability to secure adequate vehicles for his command troops and even having to SHARE a vehicle himself with minor diplomats since the transportation budget had been consumed in the purchasing of a high end model Mercedes for EACH of the UN diplomats that popped in from time to time. UN member troops typically arrived with none of their own funds for quarters or even provisions. The UN doesn’t look to US participation (US participation is UN code for American $) in these cluster f$#&s for nothing, you know.
Dallaire was implicated (by Belgium) in the murder of ten Belgian soldiers by the Rwandan army (who were supposedly allied with) but was exonerated of the charges.
Dallaire was a tough French Canadian who rose through the ranks of the Canadian Army at a time when his ethnic background was a serious liability bt these experiences screwed him up.
OT most certainly has a take (pro or con) on Dallaire’s performance.
When I went to type this post, I went to google to check some facts and found that Dallaire has become a Canadian senator and has been the subject of several films and has written another book.
I do not believe that they were able to protect any Rwandans in the long term before they were ordered to leave the country. At least he didn’t get his arms chopped off!

@Old Trooper 2:
OT, I often think about what will happen when someone here (Al Sharpton perhaps) requests UN intervention in some situation here where they are not happy with what the results their demonstrations are getting. Or maybe with another Rodney King/LA riots scenario. As hard as I try, I can’t think of any reason why it will not become reality sooner or later on the path we are on at the moment.

The UN is NOT a Governing Body anywhere except by agreement on the Property in which their Office Space sits

Would you put beyond O’B? God help us!

Having deployed on three KFOR and SFOR Missions, I can say that the UN was difficult to deal with, impossible to trust and their Personnel were as guilty of Crimes that bordered on those that We were actively hunting for rape, murder, extortion and genocide.

Refugees needed protection as much from the UN as from the Serbian Militias. As Gen Romeo Dallaire could testify, it was hard to tell who was oppressing whom. I am both honored and proud of My Service alongside Canadian Forces in the Balkans as well as in Afghanistan. No better Friends and No Finer Allies. They held Kandahar Airfield while My Group was in Helmand Province against all comers and kept it safe and secure.

There is not a more thankless tasking than a UN Peacekeeping Mission.

@Old Trooper 2 #9: Good video there. I have never seen that one before.
I have a friend who was at a meeting (accompanying his commander) with Milosevic. He doesn’t talk about service there much but when the subject comes up, he face looks like he is having a hemorrhoid flareup.
He is an AF air strike controller attached to army armor units but by now he’s been at it a while and I am sure he doesn’t crawl around in the dark by himself (except maybe for fun). He rarely says more than a word or two about his experience but once when he got back from somewhere in the desert, I was talking to him and mentioned a cheap commercial laser sight I had bought for a .22 that I owned and how it was too low power to be useful at any but point blank range during the day. I said I suspected that military models were more powerful and more useful.
He says (forgive any slight misquote), “They got that great cigarette effect”
Me, “Huh?”
Him, “They’re perfect for smokin a camel in the dark.”
He’s a good guy who comes and goes a fair amount. Not much stability for his family. He will do me for a hero till John Wayne comes back. He is near the end of his career and ready to let them have all those stripes back.

OT, when you decide to unload on the UN, be sure to give me a heads up. I want to join in on the fireworks. I consider them to be the most contemptible and corrupt organization in the world today. I think we should start the ball rolling for ouster of that cess pool from our country. If Obama continues to defeat himself, the time will be right for the New Republicans to split the sheets with the tin horn dictators and terrorists within the UN.

@ Skookum, Can do. Give me about three to four weeks on my present Duty then it will be big steaks, Whiskey that is old enough to vote and a tour of the spread, sunsets that will take your breath away and a week or two of life in Big Sky Country from My perspective, deep in the saddle and prairie grass as far as the eye can see with Hereford cattle moved by Men on horseback the Old Fashioned way.

Bed, Board, Mounts and Ammunition provided. Traditional life for Folks of the substance and values that are America’s greatest Resource.

OLD TROOPER 2, yes, I remember the DIPLOMAT hired by THE UN to AFGHANISTAN,
HE was a BRITISH and his NAME IS GALBRAIT, went to the UN to repoert that there was corruption going on inside the top guy in AFGHANISTAN and was told to not talk about it and it was not happening, and after ward he was let go for sticking to his allegations so he went public and told his story,
of the UN not taking notice of the corrupt government in AGHANISTAN,
I’m sure you must have heard about him and this story,

OT, sign me on. It’s been awhile since I have seen Hereford cattle and the mountains. I’ve been looking at the world from behind a windshield and from the inside of a barn far way too long.

I wonder, had this been ”law” a few years back, what the UN would have done to Saddam H. for his torching over 600 oil wells?
A slap on the wrist?

@Nan G:

A slap on the wrist?

From the UN?? Do you really think they wuld have even mentioned it?

First rule of Freedom is to stop thinking what the slavers want you to think; for example, there is no such thing as the UN (United Nations). If the reference is to that collection of foreign government ministries officed in that glass building on First Avenue and 42 Street then we are discussing a plot of commercial real estate fully occupied with free rent seekers. The place is a great deal slush fund paid for by American taxpayers when the space could be cleared out and reoccupied by tax paying individuals seeking residences with spectacular eastwardly-westwardly views of city and ocean and commercial businesses (New York City Hollywoodland film production industry) wanting a prime mid-town location. Google just bought, for one billion dollars, a twenty five story squat in Soho-Chelsea which, when given the chance, they would have gobbled that space at 42nd & First.

Politically that plot has major support from all political parties and candidates, the city of New York is being ruled held hostage by five star french restaurants and the secret corporations which own them.
