Senate Dems to resurrect United Nations treaty opposed by home schoolers

Senate Democrats will try to resurrect a United Nations treaty on rights for the disabled that was rejected last year over GOP concerns it would imperil home-schooling.
The treaty fell five votes short of the necessary two-thirds majority in a 61-38 vote in December after former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Penn.) led a charge that it would give unelected UN bureaucrats the power to challenge U.S. home-schooling.

Treaty supporters say those worries were unfounded, and Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), the new chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations panel hopes to win approval of the treaty, a Senate Democratic aide said.

Menendez hopes to strike a deal on a way forward with the panel's top Republican, Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, who voted against the treaty last year.

Time to fire Sen. Robert Menendez,, people from N. J.     fire this man,,,,he is not american......


Menendez is a pedophile and rapist. I wonder what ever happened to his investigation??????

If a few of them were put on trial for treason and crimes against the AMERICAN PEOPLE and in some cases crimes against HUMANITY, then hung.  The rest would fall in line.


Steven -

That is possible!


So they can just keep voting on a bill until they finally get what they want by bribes and threats?

That's how it seems to work.  The left wing has become like the monster in a horror movie -- it just keeps coming back again and again and...

Absolutely right. The gun grab legislation isn't gone either. I look for it to rear its head again soon. And if they can bribe and threaten enough senators, they have at least a 50/50 shot at passing it. I say to all, if youre not a member of the NRA consider becoming one. When NRA membership began to climb steadily just prior to the last senate vote they were forced to stand down a bit in fear of becoming unemployed. Keep the pressure on. Theres strength in numbers.

Tim said: "... if youre not a member of the NRA consider becoming one."

PLEASE DO! They're one of the few national organizations that supports liberty and has real clout. That clout comes from membership. They've even taken on some pet animal issues which would have affected hunting with dogs -- a major front in the animal rights war against pet animals.

Safe to say if we didn't have the NRA we'd have gun laws like those in the UK or Australia ...

If you're already an NRA member consider becoming a life member or maybe giving a membership to someone else.

That's a great idea Walt--giving NRA membership to someone else. I hadn't thought about that. Thank you very much. The NRA is the only thing standing in the way of the govt disarming us. Remember, just prior to the last senate vote, NRA membership began to climb at a pretty good clip. That's what took some of the wind outta the sails of several key Ds in the senate. Numbers are paramount for clout. 5 million is a big number but 6 or 7 or 10 million is even better.

I have membership in the NAGR (National Association for Gun Rights).  Very similar to the NRA but I have been favorably impressed at what fights they pick and the stances they take.

If someone wanted to give me an NRA membership as well - - I'd love it!


When will this Senate and Congress realize all UN treaties are not in our best interests at this time.

BREAKING:   Hillary Clinton Donor Ed Buck Arrested After Another Male Overdoses In His Seedy LA Apartment

Democrat donor and Hillary friend Ed Buck was finally arrested Tuesday night after a third man overdosed in his apartment.

The man who overdosed in Ed Buck’s Los Angeles apartment last week survived, however the other two victims previously died.

Ed Buck will be in court Wednesday.

Ed Buck loves to inject young black gay escorts with methamphetamine — the mother of one of Ed Buck’s victims described it as a fetish.

He was finally arrested after two black gay escorts died in his apartment from overdoses.

KTLA 5 reported:

The prominent Democratic donor and LGBTQ political activist Ed Buck was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house and providing methamphetamine to a 37-year-old man who overdosed last week, officials said.

Buck was charged with three counts of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. Buck is accused of injecting the victim, who survived, with methamphetamine on Sept. 11.

of another young black gay escort was found at the West Hollywood home of Ed Buck, a top Democrat donor and political activist.

As previously reported, a black gay escort named Gemmel Moore died of a meth overdose at Ed Buck’s West Hollywood home in July of 2017.

The LA County District Attorney’s Office previously declined to prosecute Ed Buck saying the evidence was “insufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that (Buck) is responsible for the death of Gemmel Moore,” which sparked an outrage from family members and others in the community.

Jasmyne Cannick told FOX and Friends nearly a dozen black men have come forward to speak on their experiences with “serial predator” Ed Buck.
Cannick also went off on the Democrat Party: “Over 77% of black people in California vote Democratic. We vote for Democrats.

It is a shame that when something like this happens, when you have the chair of your state party when at the time of this , Eric Bauman, who was willing to turn a blind eye as well as instruct others not to speak on it. As a black woman, as a black Democrat, I expect more from my party.

Last week, a black male was seen entering Ed Buck’s seedy LA apartment.
