Lisbon Treaty Already Undermining U.S. National Security | The Foundry: Conservative Policy News.

I blogged awhile back about the European Unions Parliament adopting The Lisbon Treaty that is very blatantly anti-American in content. In fact the Lisbon Treaty is a threat to both the European nations and the United States. The European Union Parliament are people whom no one elects and yet their decisions override those of the individual countries government. You might want to refresh your memory by reading the first post: >>November 3, 2009 The Day Europe died. Where is this century’s Paul Revere to give the warning? Will we heed the cry?
Well the EU Parliament has struck it’s first blow against the United States and the world actually: Parliamentarians voted down an EU-US agreement on tracking terrorist financing which was agreed in November 2009, before the passage of the Lisbon Treaty. So they are reaching back to rescind agreements and actions they disagree with.
The European Parliament is an endemically anti-American institution which has relentlessly prosecuted the American-led war on terrorism. In 2006, it formed a temporary committee to investigate America’s extraordinary rendition program, with some MEP’s comparing U.S. detention sites with the Soviet gulags.
There is intense dissatisfaction and disillusionment among Europeans with the Parliament, resulting in the lowest turnout for Europe-wide elections last June. That dissatisfaction is clearly spreading to the U.S. now, despite President Obama’s massive commitment to improving America’s image in Europe. The Administration should rue the day that it congratulated the EU on the passage of the Lisbon Treaty.
