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 !!!!!!!!!

OMG!!! Ruth Bader Ginsburg Voted Best Real-Life Hero At MTV Awards

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Monday was crowned the best real-life hero at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The 86-year old judge — whose 2015 biopic The Notorious RBG help cement her as a cultural icon among Liberals — beat out tennis star Serena Williams, WWE wrestler Roman Reigns, and comedian Hannah Gadsby to take him the award.

Though it wasn’t a clean sweep for Ginsburg last night.

The RGB documentary lost the “Best Fight” category for “Ruth Bader Ginsburg vs. Inequality” to “Captain Marvel vs. Minn-Erva.”

The justice was absent from the ceremony in Santa Monica, California.

Last December, Ginsburg had surgery to remove cancerous growths on her left lung. She was released from the hospital in New York four days later and recuperated at home.

Earlier this year, Ginsburg missed three days of arguments, the first time that’s happened since she joined the court in 1993. Still, she was allowed to participate using court briefs and transcripts.

Ginsburg has had two previous bouts with cancer, in 1999 and 10 years later.

Flashback: Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Pregnant Woman Is Not A ‘Mother’

Celebrated liberal U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg argued in an opinion released Tuesday that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.”

“[A] woman who exercises her constitutionally protected right to terminate a pregnancy is not a ‘mother’,” Ginsburg wrote in a footnote, which in turn responded to another footnote in the 20-page concurring opinion by Justice Clarence Thomas in the Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky Inc. case.

As Breitbart News’ legal editor Ken Klukowski reported, the case concerned a law signed by then-Governor (now Vice President) Mike Pence of Indiana in 2016, which required that the remains of an aborted fetus (or baby) be disposed of by cremation or burial. The law also prohibited abortion on the basis of sex, race, or disability alone.

The Court upheld the first part of the law, but declined to consider the selective-abortion ban until more appellate courts had ruled on it.

In his lengthy opinion — which delighted pro-life advocates, and distressed pro-choice activists — Thomas wrote that “this law and other laws like it promote a State’s compelling interest in preventing abortion from becoming a tool of modern-day eugenics.” He traced the racist and eugenicist beliefs of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, and warned that the Court would one day need to wrestle with abortion as form of racial discrimination.

In a footnote, Thomas attacked Ginsberg’s dissenting opinion, which argued the Court should not have deferred to the legal standard used by the litigants in the lower courts, but should have subjected the Indiana law to a more difficult standard instead, since it impacted “the right of [a] woman” to an abortion.

Ginsburg cited no legal authority for her claim that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.” The claim that a fetus is not a child is central to pro-choice arguments.
