Threat to US Sovereignty heading for a vote Thursday!

On Thursday, the US Senate Foreign Relations committee will hold a vote on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). This treaty WILL pass in the committee and Senator Kerry has expressed hope that they can hold a full Senate vote by July 26th. This is a blatant attempt by the Obama administration and senior Democratic Senators to fast-track this treaty before anyone can analyze it.

Last week, during the Committee on Foreign Relations hearing on the treaty, Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) expressed shock and dismay that such an important decision on American sovereignty would be pushed through without the time to do proper vetting. He and Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) are strongly opposed to the treaty. They recognize and oppose dangers of placing this area of US law under the United Nations’ purview, regardless of the treaty’s worthy aspirations.

It is apparent that the Obama administration carefully chose this particular human rights treaty because it hasn’t gotten any attention in the mainstream media and until the end of May almost nobody in the US was talking about it. It is a feel-good treaty whose highest goals everyone agrees with, but it threatens aspects of US sovereignty and will open the door further to many of the other more controversial treaties. Currently this treaty has enough support from the Republicans to pass in the Senate. Even some of the more conservative Senators are supporting it. We need to slow this vote down if for no other reason than to give everyone an opportunity to carefully analyze the treaty and ensure there are no dangers to US Sovereignty.  

Former Senator and presidential candidate Rick Santorum and his wife Karen sent the following memo out in opposition:

Patriot Voices Urges Senators To Vote Against Ratification Of The

UN Convention On The Rights Of Persons With Disabilities


Verona, PA – Patriot Voices Chairman and former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum and his wife Karen Santorum issued the following statement in opposition to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.


Rick and Karen Santorum said: “The ultimate responsibility of all parents is to care for your child, a responsibility that only takes on added weight when your child has special needs.  As parents of a beautiful, special girl, we know first-hand the blessings of loving our Bella.  This is precisely why we at Patriot Voices are urging the U.S. Senate to vote against ratification of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).  The CRPD would usurp the rights and powers of parents here in the United States to do what is best for their special needs child by placing the law of the UN above the rights of the parents.  It is the job of our elected representatives to preserve these rights, not hand them off to unaccountable international bureaucrats.”

I don't quite know what this whole treaty is all about asw I have only been able to read some of the brief overviews, however it seems to me that Obamas plan is that before the election he will have so many things passed or in place that if he wins his plan to overirde and destroy the constitution of the US will be well on its way or if he looses, Mitt Romney will be scrambling to repeal, repair and stop the damage that obama has purposedly put into motion. Why? Because if he can't win and be the King (I mean pres.) he wants to make sure he doesn everything possible to attempt to make it impossible for Romney to accomplish anything in 4 years with the economy as he will be too busy saving the constituion. This man surely has done enough actual things that he could be impeached, why is no one publicly showing  truth about him?

Kate that is a very good question. We haven't been able to remove them in a number of years.

Comment by Kate Bowe on July 18, 2012 at 9:30am

So, Debrajoe, if we are the government and congress are willing participants,

How Fast Can We Remove Them, as you said?

Comment by Jeanine Kincheloe on July 17, 2012 at 11:56am

We already have more support for those with disabilities than other countries. Perhaps the UN should copy us.

Comment by Debrajoe Smith-Beatty on July 17, 2012 at 11:40am

Ron - then we remove them. We are the government.

Comment by Debrajoe Smith-Beatty on July 17, 2012 at 10:23am

Ron it is called treason. WHERE IS THE CONGRESS?

Article 7 of the UNCRPD should wake up everyone as to the real intent of this bill.

Should we surrender American Sovereignty to the United Nations; i.e., the Den of Thieves?

This is not about disabilities . . . . . it is about losing our national Sovereignty!

Comment by Jim Bentley on July 17, 2012 at 7:54am

This treaty DOES NOT have 34 senators in opposition to it yet. The LOST treaty does (Senator DeMint has announced that) and the UNCRC does (again because of Senator DeMint). The UNCRPD has the votes right now. Conservative senators such as Barrasso from Wyoming and Moran from Kansas, both of whom are on the Foreign relations committee are currently in support. Senator Rubio is on the fence. Senator McCain is leading the push for passage. As I said originally the Obama administration chose this treaty very carefully.  It is awkward for a senator to take a vote that seems to be a vote against people with disabilities. We have to let these senators know that we oppose this treaty.They will not do it unless they hear from enough constituents. Please call your senators offices now and encourage everyone else you know to do the same.

Too angry to comment.

The UN (One World Government) is taking us. No one is stopping them.

As someone who works with adults with developmental disabilities, I cannot begin to express how disastrously BAD this treaty is. To begin with, we are turning these fragile individuals over to the oversight of countries whose track record with the disabled is far worse than the United States. We lead the world in providing superior care and support for the disabled - and to suggest that somehow what we have provided needs oversight of those less qualified in the field is ludricous at best. The treaty reeks of being a Trojan Horse, as it undercuts U.S. Sovereignty and becomes the "law of the land" per our own Constitution.

The organization I work for is one of the best in the country. The facilities run by the state are an embarrassment by comparison. To then subject all such organizations to the whims of an international body even less qualified than our own states is to invite the days of institutionalization all over again - when parents were coerced by the medical community into signing over their children so they could "get the care they needed," but which really resulted in a sentence of life imprisonment for these beautiful individuals who had committed no crime except that of being different. We have come so far in the last thirty to forty years. Do we really want to consider returning to the dark ages? God protect us, and protect the innocent we serve.
