GREAT NEWS! US Withdraws From Another UN Agreement! I Got Some More UN Treaties for the US to Withdraw From!

In another wonderful example of great news unprecedented in recent US history:

U.S. Quits Migration Pact, Saying It Infringes on Sovereignty

This is the NYTimes article I got the headline from.

Isn’t it wonderful?  Let’s try this headline again!

U.S. Quits Migration Pact, Saying It Infringes on Sovereignty

Here’s a highlight or two:

“While we will continue to engage on a number of fronts at the United Nations, in this case, we simply cannot in good faith support a process that could undermine the sovereign right of the United States to enforce our immigration laws and secure our borders,” Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson said in a statement on Sunday.


Mr. Trump’s United Nations ambassador, Nikki R. Haley, said in the statement announcing the withdrawal that the declaration contained “numerous provisions that are inconsistent with U.S. immigration and refugee policies and the Trump administration’s immigration principles.”

Technically there is yet no treaty, that will be debated in 2018.  But the Times called it a “political declaration” and they must have seen language that was unacceptable and could not stop it.  America First!

But it is fabulous!

BUT not enough:  I got a few more treaties for the US to GET OUT of:

The UN Framework Convention on Climate Control

The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights

And any other treaty that requires a report to foreigners.  Mandatory reports to foreigners is not authorized by the Constitution.

We should also “unsign” these treaties:

Convention on Eradication of Discrimination Against Women (abortion among other issues)

Convention on the Rights of the Child (threatens parental rights)

Convention on Rights of the Disabled (threatens parental and homeschool rights as well and also requires us to answer to foreigners and is a trojan horse for other treaties)

So, this is a good start.  For more info, can go here and here for status of US on UN treaties.  (It’s actually a pretty good record.)

Thanks to patriot Sue Long for this hat tip.

    Politicians are infamous for always highlighting minutia , accomplishments that they crow about to somehow create the impression that they got something of substance done. I could cite countless examples at every level of government.

    Like him or hate him one truth is surfacing after 1 year in office, President Trump is taking on the ” big things”and isn’t detracted from doing so by his volumes of critics.
    Repeal of the A.C.A failure falls on the cowards in the U.S Senate. Tax Reform ( failing to go far enough) Immigration Reform and rumored coming efforts at reforming welfare and entitlement programs are why the American people saw in this man some level of hope that the wrong course this Nation has been on for 6 decades could be reversed.
    Only through the prism of history’s judgment will it be determined if his efforts are successful, but no one can say Trump is afraid of tackling big issues.

    Here is a factoid for you Bob.

    1) Trump promised a fantastic, wonderful, affordable healthcare plan, not Congress. Repeat, Trump made the promise. On day one he said.
    2) Trump promised not to touch SS or Medicare.
    3) Trump said the carried interest tax for billionaires had to go over and over.
    4) Obama created more jobs last year than Trump has this year. Source US Dept. of Labor.
    5) The trade deficit has increased with China, Mexico, and Japan this year vs. last year under Obama. Source US Census.
    6) The Trump tax cut for the rich deficit buster bill, is loaded with pork including special tax breaks for golf course owners like Trump, tax break for starkist Tuna, private jet rental corps., craft brewers, and page after page of other pork items. Your deficit concerns ended past January, did they not Bob?
    7) Trump said Mexico would pay for the wall???????
    8) All lies.

    Trump and Limbaugh have played the low intelligence Republican base like a fiddle. What you people lack cannot be taught or purchased.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
