The administrative state for the better part of a century, and really dating back to the Pendleton Act of 1883, has designed policy, made policy, structured policy, implemented policy, and interpreted policy while operating outside the control of Congress, the president, and the judiciary.

That's literally what we are seeing in America right now from inflation to spending to debt to supply chain to energy costs to shortages to blackouts. All of this is designed to put America on its knees so that government can save us and we'll be more reliant on government. That is, in a nutshell, what the climate agenda is about.

Official delegates from wealthy developed nations like Australia, the UK, the European Union and the United States spoke in strong support of the amendments and urged other states to join them in signing away their countries’ sovereignty. The first sign, however, that things might not be going the globalists' way, came when Botswana stated that they would be collectively withholding their support for the ‘reforms’, which many African members were very concerned about.
