Today, President Obama’s Secretary of State John Kerry is at the United Nations Headquarters to join 130 nations in signing the “Framework Convention on Climate Change” agreement.
But as Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) and Rep. Mike Allen (R-PA) argue, because the agreement includes legally binding rules about carbon emissions, Obama violated the Constitution by not submitting this plan to the Senate.
Obama violated the law by not allowing the Senate to “advise and consent.” Instead, Obama is acting as a tyrant, unilaterally entering into agreements which will have devastating consequences for America’s economy.
This is outrageous, and is grounds for impeachment!
Despite these facts, President Obama has already announced he will not submit the Paris Climate Agreement to the Senate for advice and consent. Instead, the White House claims the signature environmental achievement of the president’s tenure is just an “international agreement” not meriting Senate attention.
If the stakes weren’t so high, this claim would be laughable on its face.
Not only was this agreement’s predecessor, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, submitted to the Senate and approved as a treaty, but when the Senate ratified that treaty, the Foreign Relations Committee specifically reported that any future emissions targets agreed to through the Convention “would have to be submitted to the Senate for its advice and consent.”
President Obama has chosen to ignore this directive.
He has also chosen to ignore the State Department’s eight-factor test that is used to determine “whether any international agreement should be brought into force as a treaty or as an international agreement other than a treaty.”

Obama went against the rules of his own State Department by not submitting it to the Senate… Because he knows the Republican majority would reject it.
Now, the agreement creates the “Green Climate Fund” which is a slush fund paid for by American taxpayers to bribe developing nations into also signing the agreement. Outrageous!
This is why we need a real leader in the White House who follows the Constitution.
