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.

AGREED !

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.

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.

ALERT ALERT

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.

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.
