President Obama, the Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) like to distract us with things like attacks on Mitt Romney’s business credentials and calls for him to release his tax returns. Not only does it take the spotlight off of their abysmal record when it comes to the economy, it also gives them cover to do what they do while flying under the radar.
Maggie’s Notebook has two important stories that haven’t gotten enough coverage and thanks to my own distractions I haven’t had the chance to cover.
Senator John Kerry (D-Mass), after being told to stuff his Law of the Sea Treaty (at least for this year), has announed he WILL pass the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) by July 26, 2012. Obama signed the Treaty in 2009. Now it has to make it out of Kerry’s Committee, which is a given, and then must pass a two-thirds vote in the Senate. If Democrats, with the help of some Republicans, pull this off, it will be the “first time the U.S. has ratified a treaty that substantially impacts domestic law.”
This is a very important issue flying under the radar, and according to involved sources, after taking control of America’s disabled children, there is another treaty roaring at full speed, the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child – every child worldwide.
We’ve heard a lot lately about the UN Arms Trade Treaty. This video from InfoWars will curl your hair. It connects the Treaty with a 1961 State Department document with the chilling title ”Declaration on Disarmament – General and Complete Disarmament in a Peaceful World.” The original document is from 1961 in conjunction with the U.S. State Department and the United Nations. It mimics many provisions of the United Nations Millennium Development Goal 2000 (UNMDG) that I beat on routinely. I know what many of you will say, ‘this is old,’ has no meaning today, but let me ask you, assuming the document from 1961 is genuine, why would our State Department EVER engage in this rhetoric? Maybe I’m being pranked??? I don’t think so. The layers are too deep.
