Arms Trade Treaty: Congress Warns White House on Backdoor Implementation

As we have explained, the ATT is a severely flawed treaty that will not make the world’s bad and incompetent governments behave any better. It will be used primarily to criticize the U.S. and to impede our ability to sell arms to allies such as Israel and Taiwan.

Senator Moran has long headed the opposition to the ATT in the Senate. Last fall, he led 50 of his Senate colleagues in a bipartisan letter to President Obama pledging to oppose ratification of the ATT.

Yesterday, Moran noted that, almost six months later, he has not received the courtesy of a reply to that letter. He summarized Senate and House actions that make it clear that they oppose the implementation of the treaty until it passes through the full ratification process.

Most significantly, Moran expressed grave concern at the Administration’s new conventional arms export control policy, which has been interpreted by some as a covert attempt to implement the treaty, urged the President to withdraw his signature from it, and pledged to continue to lead the opposition against it.

Obama believes in UN sovereignty over the world. He doesn't believe in the Constitution

Well Senator Moran, Obama sent strong messages to Putin! And to Syria, and to Iran. Have you ever heard of the middle finger? Maybe Obama will send you a strong message back, " I got a pen and I got a phone "!

Obam thinks he is the 1st Emperor of the World and will not recognize anyone that objects to his Iron Fist Rule of America and elsewhere.

Obama doesn't believe in America.  This is, without question, the most treacherous, anti-America, deceitful administration that a bunch of ignorant voters have ever put into office. 

Rat bastards, all of them including his bitch.

For those who don't know, Congress consist of the House of Representatives and the Senate and is referred to as the Legislative Branch of the Government.
I just didn't want our Tea Party members to think that the Senate wasn't part of Congress. It was probably a waste of time since most of them know better.
Frank,
We both belong to the Tea Party and I am sure we have more in common then we have shown to our fellow Tea Party members. I am not a Libertarian or a Independent. My concern is what just happened in Fl. Where a Conservative won running on the GOP ticket by beating the Democrat by about 2% while a Independent took a little over 4% of the votes. We have to come together in the end and vote for the best, not perfect, Candidate!

I'm confident that the next Preezy will be guided to hit the 'undo' button on many of BOs insane ideological implementations. Much of the BO damage needs to be reversed and it may take years to wipe much of the slate clean. Some of it may be impossible to correct.

However, the growing disgust for this lawless regime extends way past the usual groups, and those numbers are now saying it publicly. YES, Americans ARE slowly waking up and they're not liking what they're seeing or hearing.

The regime can put up all the clapping seals behind their messiah each time he lies at the podium, - but it's intended effect is becoming enormously insignificant. Those who voted for him are currently expressing, 'disappointment'. (ya think?), - which is nothing more than a self-comforting utterance for, 'WTF was I thinking'.  Heh-heh.

The new and growing remorseful voter crowd are not only discovering that all the Utopian promises were all impossible lies, but also the massively embraced, 'hip' political correctness (PC) is nothing more than outright censorship, followed by documented harassment. Sometimes it even involves career killing tactics and death threats. Those who claim to be fighting racism, etc., are 'THE' individuals who are intolerant and completely obsessed with race. The new tolerance is the new conformity! The current LEFT are the new brown shirts.  

All of this from the so-called all caring, all inclusive, all knowing, tolerant HIP preezy and his minions. The light bulb above the empty cranium voters - is beginning to glow. Hallelujah! 

        WE WANT NO PART OF THIS TREATY !!!!!!!!!

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
