A NEW FRONT on the BATTLE against the BAD UN DISABILITIES TREATY: VETERANS’ GROUPS!

Some veterans are going to be furious when they read this post.  But take that anger and use it wisely:  Channel it into getting this turned around! Many veterans groups SUPPORT the BAD UN Disabilities Treaty.  The American Legion, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Wounded Warrior Project and the Disabled American Veterans all support […]

UN TREATY ALERT! CALL SENATORS WEBB and WARNER! NO on CRPD!

The so-called Convention for the Rights of the Persons with Disabilities is back again! www.parentalrights.org is reporting that Senator Reid wants to vote on CRPD this week!  We need to call our senators today or tomorrow. I would say:  First, a lame duck session is not appropriate for a serious matter like this treaty.  Only […]

MY HERO: Senator MIKE LEE of UTAH – he STOPPED a SNEAKY ATTEMPT to pass the DISABILITIES TREATY and CAME UP with 35 other senators who WILL NOT VOTE YES THIS SESSION!

www.parentalrights.org reported and The Hill confirms that there was first a sneaky attempt to pass the sovereignty-killing, unnecessary, dangerous (especially to parental rights and homeschoolers) Convention to Protect the Rights of the Disabled (CPRD) stopped by Utah Senator Mike Lee and then the wonderful “round robin” letter Lee then produced, signed by enough Senators to […]

KEEP UP THE FIGHT: CALL your SENATOR TODAY on the CRPD (The DISABILITIES TREATY!)!

I like this posting from the Home School Legal Defense Association on the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities: Please give these senators some or all of the following message: I urge you to oppose the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. This treaty surrenders U.S. sovereignty to unelected […]

SANTORUM says NO to UN TREATY on rights of disabled! If you HOMESCHOOL a disabled/special needs CHILD – some judge can say that is ILLEGAL!

I was pleased (thanks to parentalrights.org) to report that former PA Senator and Presidential candidate Rick Santorum has expressed his opposition to the UN Treaty on the Rights of the Disabled: Rick and Karen Santorum said: “The ultimate responsibility of all parents is to care for your child, a responsibility that only takes on added […]

DON’T DO IT! DON’T RATIFY ANY UN TREATY but ESPECIALLY NOT the CONVENTION on the RIGHTS of PERSONS with DISABILITIES!

The Senate is considering what seems on its face like a non-controversial UN treaty:  the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. But it is controversial or it ought to be!  I have blogged on this before.  (Remember Sandy’s rule on UN Treaties:  Bad UN law is repetitious!) But as Heritage Foundation testified today […]

MUST OPPOSE another UN TREATY! THE CONVENTION on the RIGHTS of the DISABLED – we have the law already and do not need FOREIGNERS meddling in OUR BUSINESS!

Parentalrights.org has made a great argument as to why we should not ratify the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).  I have largely incorporated it here at this blog post: But there is another treaty that has some of the fears that the UNCRC has (and which is generally shared with other […]

IF IT IS an UNITED NATIONS TREATY – SIMPLY VOTE NO unless there is a COMPELLING REASON! CONTACT SENATOR WEBB!

Seems this is a season for United Nations treaties.  We have the usual two:  CEDAW and the UN Child Treaty.  Not too much on CEDAW but this report that the CEDAW committee criticized Brazil for not pushing abortion and also that the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights is reported to call for “reproductive rights […]

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