This is enough to scare the bejesus out of a person, especially a parent. Please take the time to read this. It is just one more thing they are trying to slip in under the radar. As long as they keep us focused on Czars and Health Care, this will go through with nary a peep.
20 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE UN CONVENTION ON THE RIGHTS OF THE CHILD from Parentalrights.org
Ten things you need to know about the structure of the CRC: 1.It is a treaty which creates binding rules of law. It is no mere statement of altruism.
2.Its effect would be binding on American families, courts, and policy-makers.
3.Children of other nations would not be impacted or helped in any direct way by our ratification.
4.The CRC would automatically override almost all American laws on children and families because of the U.S. Constitution’s Supremacy Clause in Article VI.
5.The CRC has some elements that are self-executing, while others would require implementing legislation. Federal courts would have the power to determine which provisions were self-executing.
6.The courts would have the power to directly enforce the provisions that are self-executing.
7.Congress would have the power to directly legislate on all subjects necessary to comply with the treaty. This would constitute the most massive shift of power from the states to the federal government in American history.
8.A committee of 18 experts from other nations, sitting in Geneva, has the authority to issue official interpretations of the treaty which are entitled to binding weight in American courts and legislatures. This effectively transfers ultimate authority for all policies in this area to this foreign committee.
9.Under international law, the treaty overrides even our Constitution.
10.Reservations, declarations, or understandings intended to modify our duty to comply with this treaty will be void if they are determined to be inconsistent with the object and purpose of the treaty.
Ten things you need to know about the substance of the CRC: 1.Children would have the ability to choose their own religion while parents would only have the authority to give their children advice about religion. 2.The best interest of the child principle would give the government the ability to override every decision made by every parent if a government worker disagreed with the parent’s decision. 3.A child’s “right to be heard” would allow him (or her) to seek governmental review of every parental decision with which the child disagreed. 4.According to existing interpretation, it would be illegal for a nation to spend more on national defense than it does on children’s welfare. 5.Children would acquire a legally enforceable right to leisure. 6.Christian schools that refuse to teach "alternative worldviews" and teach that Christianity is the only true religion "fly in the face of article 29" of the treaty. 7.Allowing parents to opt their children out of sex education has been held to be out of compliance with the CRC. 8.Children would have the right to reproductive health information and services, including abortions, without parental knowledge or consent. 9.Parents would no longer be able to administer reasonable spankings to their children. 10.A murderer aged 17 years and 11 months and 29 days at the time of his crime could no longer be sentenced to life in prison
You really must go read this: http://forum.americandaughter.org/?p=36 It is an outline for the overthrow of our Republic as we know it, and how "O" is being used to impliment it. I remember as a child my father belonging to the John Birch Society. I was warned of all of these things taking place long before they did. Unfortunately, the enemy was able at that time to discredit the John Birch Society and make them look like a bunch of fringe loonies. I think, my friends, we have been sleeping at the wheel long enough. We are headed for a major head on collision. In fact we are seconds away from impact. WAKE UP AMERICA, TAKE THE CONTROL BACK!! Do it now before it is to late and we wonder what happened. And thanks to Right Truthfor posting this. It is how we stay informed given the hostile take over of our media.
Dear Evy, Last week, we asked you to help us raise $100,000 to fund our rapid response to the Republicans' never-ending scare tactics aimed at denying Americans real health insurance reform. You went above and beyond by raising a goal-shattering $147,000. On behalf of the DCCC, I can't thank you enough.With September shaping up to be the decisive month in this fight, we can't back down. Here is a special edition of @Stake, showing some of the ways that you can help us keep up the pressure on Republicans trying to kill health insurance reform using any and all means necessary.Fighting Fear with FactsThis week, the DCCC launched a new web video showing the twisted lengths that Republicans like Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, RNC Chair Michael Steele, and conservative commentator Glenn Beck will go to try and kill health insurance reform.Check out our brand new video "Fighting Fear with Facts" and then forward it to five of your friends and family so we can expose their empty fear-mongering and show everyone the tactics they plan to keep using in the weeks ahead. Mobile Alerts - Fact Check Their LiesFrom Sarah Palin's "death panels," to Michael Steele's shameless lies about cutting Medicare, to the RNC's outrageous claims that health care will be denied to Republican voters, to who knows what else is coming, we have to fight every single lie with the truth. Text TRUTH to 74471 to sign up for the DCCC's mobile alerts and receive your fact-check tool kit to expose the lies and help President Obama get the real truth out about health insurance reform.Heard Around Town - Latest Republican OutragesHere are some of the latest and most outrageous statements by the right-wing fringe in their fight to kill health insurance reform.Rep. Bachmann: "We have to slit our wrists, be blood brothers on this thing."No recap of outrageous statements would be complete without a contribution by Congresswoman Michele Bachmann. Among other things, Bachmann reportedly told a right-wing fundraiser: "What we have to do today is make a covenant, to slit our wrists, be blood brothers on this thing. This will not pass." Claiming that Americans pay half their income to taxes, she said, "This is nothing more than slavery." And perhaps the craziest of all, Bachmann said, "Right now, we are looking at reaching down the throat and ripping the guts out of freedom." Read more of Bachmann's out-of-control rant.Rep. Jenkins Tells Uninsured Mom to "Go Be a Grown Up"This week, Kansas Republican Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins seems to be engaged in a race to the bottom - with herself. Fresh off her remarks about how the Republican Party should embrace a 'great white hope' against the agenda of House Democrats and President Obama, Jenkins recently held a town hall meeting where she laughed at an uninsured single mother who was asking for a public insurance option and even told her to 'go be a grown up.' Check out the video. Looking AheadWith Congress returning to finish their work on health insurance reform, September will be the make-or-break month. The work we do in the weeks ahead will determine whether Americans get meaningful health insurance reform or whether the Republicans succeed in protecting the status quo. Thank you again for shattering our August goal and for all that you're doing to expose the lies, spread the truth, and demonstrate the grassroots momentum behind health insurance reform. Stay tuned for more late-breaking news and more ways that you can help President Obama and House Democrats win this fight for the American people. Jon VogelExecutive Director, DCCC
Must be because I turned myself in a few weeks ago.
I am a Right-Wing-Nut-Christian-Conservative,clinging to my religion and my guns. Living on the Left Coast. I value family and the sanctity of life.
I love Disneyland and go there, on a regular basis, to play with my grandchildren.
On January 9, 2013 I received my second membership in a club I never wanted membership in to begin with. I am now a mother awaiting reunion with two of my children in Heaven. Kris left us on January 9 and our preborn baby Jeffery Matthew went to heaven in 1971. I know I still have work to do here but I am anxiously awaiting our reunion in heaven.
