The United Nations wants parents who physically discipline their children with smacks or spankings to be thrown behind bars and have their families torn to shreds by government. Of course, the “Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General on Violence against Children,” Marta Santos Pais, did not put it quite that explicitly. But that is an accurate description of the UN bureaucrat's demands, as issued in a series of official statements posted on the UN's website this month. It is also part of the global agenda to destroy parental rights, as envisioned in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) that Santos Pais helped write and that extremists in the United States are trying to impose on the American people.

In recent years, the United States and the United Kingdom have both already come under UN fire for failing to criminalize parents who discipline their children. Last year, for example, the UN released a “human rights” report by “experts,” mostly from totalitarian regimes, blasting U.K. authorities for not bowing down to the anti-family agenda. Among other actions, the UN report called on the government to jail parents who spank or sm.... The UN “experts” also demanded a tax-funded propaganda campaign demonizing traditional parenting. In 2014, meanwhile, a similar UN “Human Rights Committee” demanded that the federal government ignore the U.S. Constitution to impose a nationwide ban on corporal punishment.

But the global war on parental rights led by the UN and its allies is only just getting started. In fact, according to the UN, “more than half of all children” are in danger — primarily from their parents. Last year, the UN claims “more than one billion children” were affected by “some form of violence.” If you have ever smacked or even lightly spanked your child, the UN is looking at you.       

UN “Violence Against Children” czar Santos Pais, who has decades of experience as an international bureaucrat working at the UN and other transnational institutions, made that all fairly clear. Perhaps the most obvious giveaway of the UN bureaucrat's agenda, though, was her celebration of what she called “fabulous initiatives” regulating parental discipline. The only specific law and campaign she cited as an example of the “fabulous initiatives,” a model for what she would like to see worldwide, was adopted by the Swedish government in 1979. The controversial law includes the world's first total ban on all physical discipline and “other humiliating treatment.”

So what, exactly, does this law do? According to attorney Ruby Harrold-Claesson, the president of the Nordic Committee for Human Rights, the law has served primarily to destroy families and empower government. 

“The law ranks all physical punishment of children [such as] a slap on the hand, on the cheek or on the bottom, as assault and battery,” she explained in a comprehensive report examining the situation. “Room-arrest is regarded as 'other humiliating treatment.'” Among other concerns, Harrold-Claesson noted that the law has “resulted in serious interference in people's family and private lives, and has damaged the relationship between parents and children,” to the detriment of the family as an institution. In the place of parents, government institutions have usurped responsibility over children, in many cases breaking up families, the prominent Swedish lawyer and human-rights activist explained.

“The law was said to be 'primarily a valuable pedagogical support in the efforts to convince parents and others that no forms of violence are allowed to be tools in the raising of children,'”  Harrold-Claesson continued. “Instead, the law has resulted in hundreds of normal parents being harassed by the police and the social authorities. Some parents have been prosecuted in the Courts, and sentenced and thus been criminalized, because they have smacked — or have allegedly smacked — their misbehaving children.” The internationally known Swedish jurist also said the role of families had been usurped, with government schools and social institutions being given a “monopoly over the children.”

Arrests and the destruction of families is common in nations with such laws in place.

Now imagine that sort of nightmarish regime, but on a global scale, and you can get a sense of what the UN and its “Violence Against Children” czar are working to bring about. In fact, while the establishment press in the United States has carefully avoided shedding light on the subject, the UN is hardly trying to conceal its radical agenda. It already has two international “legal instruments” that, according to the UN and many of its member governments, already criminalize physical discipline of children.

One is the UN CRC, a global treaty that empowers bureaucrats to decide what is in the “best interests” of a child, rather than allowing parents, who love and know their children best, to make those determinations. So far the U.S. Senate has refused to ratify the dangerous UN regime. But in Scotland, as one example, the UN CRC was interpreted by lawmakers as requiring a specific, named social wor....

The other UN scheme, known as UN Agenda 2030, in addition to demanding global wealth redistributi... also deals with what it calls “violence” against children. Goal 16.2 in the scheme demands an end to “all forms of violence” against children, which in UN-speak includes corporal discipline. UN Agenda 2030, like the CRC, has not been ratified by the U.S. Senate, as required for all treaties by the U.S. Constitution. But it was signed by Obama, whose administration is acting as though the scheme had been ratified.   

The UN's Santos Pais, a member of the UN Drafting Group behind the UN CRC, has been speaking to anyone who would listen about the agenda, and making clear what it means. “Since 2006, the number of States having introduced an explicit legal ban on violence against children, including corporal punishment, has tripled,” she explained at a summit this month in Austria aimed at banning corporal punishment and criminalizing parents worldwide. “Today, more than half of the United Nations member States have either introduced the ban or firmly committed to do it. Policies to support positive parenting and early childhood initiatives and to promote zero tolerance for violence against children are taking ground in an increasing number of countries. In turn, this is helping to overcome deeply rooted social norms, attitudes and behaviors condoning violence against children.” She also celebrated Agenda 2030's prohibition.

The conference she was speaking at crafted a resolution that vows to step up efforts to sideline parents and tell them how to raise their children — at government gunpoint if needed. Among other elements, the Conference Resolution called for implementing prohibitions on corporal punishment, which it labels “assault,” at the “international, regional and national levels.” The scheme also called for “comprehensive dissemination” of information on the ban, “promotion of positive, non-violent forms of discipline,” and “public and parent education.” In other words, tax-funded government propaganda aimed at parents with instructions on how the UN thinks they should raise their children. Finally, the document called for establishing a massive “data collection system” to make sure parents around the world are all raising their children in accordance with UN decrees.  

Unfortunately, by equating “violence against children” with reasonable physical punishment offered lovingly by parents as a disciplinary measure, Santos Pais does a tremendous disservice to the many innocent children who face real violence and abuse. To even compare the two is to cruelly and heartlessly cheapen, downplay, and exploit the massive amounts of real suffering endured by children around the world. Indeed, comparing loving parents who use corporal punishment to help teach their children with adults who beat, torture, rape, and truly harm children is demagoguery of the most vile sort. Yet American taxpayer funds continue to support the UN's propaganda campaign that does precisely that.   

In what might be seen as twisted bit of irony, it seems children around the world — and especially in Africa — have much more to fear from the UN's brutal “peacekeeping” forces than they do from their own parents. As documented extensively by this magazine and even official UN reports, international troops on UN “peace” missions have been savagely exploiting and raping children around the world for decades across every region of the world except Antarctica. Most recently, a high-ranking UN human-rights whistleblowerwho tried to stop the rape of children as young as eight and nine the face of what he called “impunity” among top UN officials.    

The UN Charter prohibits UN interference in the internal affairs of member states. It should go without saying that family affairs, then, are way outside the bounds of anything that could be considered even remotely legitimate. Whether corporal punishment is good or bad is completely irrelevant. What is relevant is that the dictators club known as the UN is trying to turn loving parents into criminals, even as its own “peace” troops terrorize, rape, and brutalize children around .... The hypocrisy is out of control. It is past time for Congress to pass the American Sovereignty Restoration Act to get the United States out of the UN.

i love it when someone speaks out against child abuse supports abortion [as the un does]

While the UN and BillyBob Klinton sat by while Rwandans were massacred.

BillyBob said something later like, "Oh, that is something I regret."

And everywhere the u.n. goes, there goes their very own version of rape teams.

The UN can suck pond water through a straw. They mean nothing to me.

What about muslim parents who rape and murder their children?  

Wow, that would put many Muslims in jail, wouldn't it?

The US needs to kick the UN out of the Country and out of our lives.  They are corrupt to the core, and have been for the past 50 years.

Amen, Viper.  And not to mention the money we taxpayers give to these corrupt evil criminals. If that money went to help our veterans, instead...............but, I guess sanity does not reign in D.C.

The U.N. needs to mind its own business,in fact the U.N. needs to be spanked and slapped around by the America people, Obama wanted them to run our Government because he is too lazy to do it himself.

F--K the u.n.

Sorry UN we obey God not man! "Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it. Pro 22:6

The UN and the entire Democrat Party wants every American to be a criminal, to keep guns out of there hands. God said, Spare the rod, spoil the. Child. Lord knows that has happened.

"God said, Spare the rod, spoil the. Child. Lord knows that has happened."   And look at what has happened to the country since so many have thrown God's Word out the window.....

Joe Biden Talks To The Dead: – He Worked On Paris Climate Deal With Long-Dead Chinese Leader

Former Vice President Joe Biden mistakenly claimed on Monday that he worked on the Paris Climate Accord with former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping — who died more than 20 years before its signing.

Zach Parkinson  

Joe Biden claimed tonight that he worked with Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping on the Paris Climate Accord.

Except the current Chinese President is Xi Jinping.

Deng Xiapoing left office in 1992 and has been dead for 23 years.

Biden made the gaffe while citing his accomplishments in President Barack Obama’s administration.

“One of the things I’m proudest of is getting passed, getting moved, getting in control of the Paris Climate Accord,” Biden said in a speech at the College of Charleston. “I’m the guy who came back after meeting with Deng Xiaoping and making the case that I believe China will join if we put pressure on them. We got almost 200 nations to join.”

Xiaoping served as the leader of China from 1978 until his retirement in 1992, and passed away in 1997. Xi Jinping, China’s current president, came to power 2013 and signed the country onto the 2016 agreement.

In June 2017, President Trump announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the agreement, stating that accord will “undermine the economy” and “puts [the United States] at a permanent disadvantage.”

In addition to the Xiaoping gaffe, Biden bizarrely declared in a campaign speech that he is a “candidate for the United States Senate” and that people could “vote for the other Biden” if they prefer one of his rivals.

“My name is Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over, if you like what you see, help out. If not, vote for the other Biden,” the 77-year-old said at the First in the South Dinner.

Biden’s confusing comments come as Democrat primary candidates are scheduled to debate in Charleston Tuesday evening. The former vice president faces increasing pressure to give a standout performance as his “firewall” in the Palmetto State crumbles in the face of a surging Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). The Vermont senator is fresh off a decisive victory in Nevada caucuses on Saturday. Earlier this month, he placed first the New Hampshire primary and won the popular vote in Iowa. In a survey released Monday, the Public Policy Polling outfit said Biden leads South Carolina with 36 percent of support and Sanders is in second at 21 percent.
