Climate King: Obama will bypass Senate, ratify Paris climate accord himself during trip to China

by Valerie Richardson - The Washington Times  |  published on August 29, 2016


President Obama is prepared to enter into the Paris climate accord as early as this week even though Republicans have insisted that the pact must be ratified by the Senate, according to a report out of China.

The South China Morning Post reported that Mr. Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping are “set to jointly announce their ratification” of the ambitious international climate-change pact on Friday, two days before the start of the 11th G-20 Summit in Hangzhou, Zhejiang.

“There are still some uncertainties from the U.S. side due to the complicated U.S. system in ratifying such a treaty, but the announcement is still quite likely to be ready by Sept. 2,” an unnamed source told the English-language newspaper.

In addition, “[s]enior climate officials from both countries worked late into the night in Beijing on Tuesday to finalise [sic] details,” said the article, citing “sources familiar with the issue.”

The Thursday report touched off alarm among foes of the Paris Agreement, which calls for nations to reduce their greenhouse-gas emissions with the aim of holding global temperatures to an increase of “well below” 2 degrees Celsius from pre-industrial levels.

    How do you like our dictaster in chief now? Once again, doing as he pleases with no regard to the actual rule of law. Lock the treasonous Muslim up already!

  • Ramon1710 .

    Medieval warming periods exceeded temperatures which these liars claim are due to industrial gasses. The fact that these jerks claim they can control global temperatures either demonstrates their propensity for lying, or their hubris of god-delusion and stupidity.

    Why is this news? We might as well send congress home until they can think of some strategy to curb the appetite of this wild dog. We knew ahead of time that he would do everything he could to humble us for doubting his royal entitlement. Comes with the narcissistic personality disorder that has prevailed. Twenty years from now we will learn what a complete fraud he was. Until then we have to quiet the appetites of the democrat dung beetles.

    Sorry Obama you have no authority to enter into any treaty that is the job of the Legislative Branch not the Executive Branch. Any agreement is unbinding and illegitimate.

    Global warming is a gigantic fraud created to further control the people world wide. Check the geoengineeringwatch.org web site to learn how weather is created and controlled world wide. Weather control was created during the 1950’s, used during the 1960’s Viet Nam war, and currently 15 governments have perfected weather control and creation world wide.
    Congress is an equal one third of our government but they have abdicated their responsibilities and allowed the executive branch to take complete control of the functions of their branch of our government. Why???????????

  • Walter Flatt

    ANYTHING HE SIGNS NOW WILL BE ILLEGAL, HE IS A MUSLIM AND IS IN THIS COUNTRY ILLEGALLY AND HAS NO RIGHT TO BE PRESIDENT OR SIGN ANYTHING ON OUR BEHALF.

    OUR GOVERNMENT PASSED A LAW IN 1952 BARRING ALL MUSLIMS FROM THIS COUNTRY AND OBAMA IS A PROFESSED MUSLIM AND SHOULD BE IMPEACHED.

    Anyone with the backbone to start impeachment of Obummer? We have a Constitution and aCongress that is supposed to ratify all agreements. Obama violates that we should hang him out to dry —-literally!

  • Robert Wilson

    B.O. strikes again! Another step in the direction of socialism- you know, the type of government that DOES NOT WORK.

  • Tyronne Shoelaces

    You know, I don’t blame Obozo, I’d do as I pleased if I had a congress that wouldn’t stop me. We need to replace the whole lot of them. Trump, when you get in the WH, void everything this POS has done to this country.

  • robert sanders

    It seems as though the monkey has more balls than the senate does. The gov. in this country is all crooked like hitler Hillary.

  • Tiger

    He can’t ratify a Treaty. He has to go through the Senate and get their input then they Ratify not him. Whatever he does is hogwash and can be undone because the rest of the world understands he doesn’t have that right.

    So what needs to happen won’t happen. Congress needs to call him in and make him Stand Down they have that power and they certainly have more than one reason to do it but this alone is a huge reason.

    • robert sanders

      first of all the SENATE has to grow some BALLS first, then take action.

      • Tiger

        They don’t know the meaning they need to look at Weiners posts and see what they look like.

        • robert sanders

          better take a magnifying glass.

          • Tiger

            LMAO well at least it can give them an idea.

    Maybe the “great Constitutional scholar & perfesser” Urkel the 1/4 to last, presidential place holder, can’t read? Namely the Constitution, that clearly states a treaty not ratified by Congress isn’t worth the fish wrap newspaper it was printed on and that the 4-8 year temp hire position, known as ‘the prez” has no power to get it accepted if not ratified by Congress. Now we all know that Urkel “did I do that?” has left no opportunity unused to rat-ify himself and “let us be clear” do everything he could to shame, financially ruin, and degrade our great country. Now it is time to show the rat – ifier that there are limits to his waning power and that he was sworn in to uphold and defend the Constitution and that there are penalties for his constant disregard and violations of the same. It is time to impeach the jester, with loss of all pensions, financial penalties, and a full investigation by a special prosecutor in his involvement and actions in Fast & Furious, Benghazi, Solyndra, Lightsquared, the prisoner releases from Gitmo, the unreleased portions of TPP, and the Iran Treaty and money dealings.

    Why is anyone surprised at this? “Constitution Scholar” Obama has show a propensity and a desire to ignore the Constitution when ever he deems it appropriate. He ignore his oath to support and defend the laws of the US when he told the Just-Us department not to enforce laws that were not to his PC liking. He negotiates treaties with other countries, completely ignoring the Constitutional requirement of Congressional over sight. Emir Barak 1st believes he is well above the mundane laws the rest of the Presidents have had to abide by and, if anointed, so will Queen Hillary of the Mao Pants Suit.

  • joe

    HOW can “emperor” obama make these decisions without the debated approval of the Congress? What has happened to the lawful process of our republic?

  • Taking care of business!

    He’s got a pen, and he’s got a phone–and he’s a dictator.

  • Robert A Hartman

    So there you go, hold your nose because of all the STENCH coming from Capitol Hill!

    • Dan

  • Ernesto

    AMERICA!! Again… the illiterate senate, and the illiterate congress, do nothing, this Morons aren’t doing anything from toilet to Sewer Shit, so why the hell do we pay them for. Lets do away with this senate and congress bullshit, just a waste of money, having idiots doing nothing. Lets take that money and use it to pay the debt, instead of this Sewer Shit idiots. Lets stand together and get this Sewer Trash out of office. God Bless

  • Robert Mix

    So what ELSE is new? Obama, the Coward in Chief, always bypasses the legislative branch when he can’t get his way.
