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.

Yikes !!! Ocasio-Cortez: We Need A ‘Multigendered, Multigeographic’ United States

The United States of America needs to be “multigendered” and “multigeographic,” according to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who endorsed fellow socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) at the “Bernie’s Back Rally” in New York on Saturday.

The freshman lawmaker and “Squad” member officially endorsed Sanders during a rally in Queensbridge Park in Long Island City, New York, on Saturday and called for more diversity in the U.S., arguing that it should not only be “multiracial” and “multigenerational” but “multigeographic” and “multigendered.”

“We need a United States that really, truly, and authentically is operated, owned, and decided by working – and all – people in the United States of America,” Ocasio-Cortez said to applause.

“That is what it – it is multiracial, multigendered, multigenerational, and multigeographic,” she said, failing to elaborate on what that specifically looks like.

“We have to come together, not ignoring our differences but listening to them, prioritizing them, understanding injustice,” she continued.

The socialist lawmaker also implied that rampant racism is still alive and well in the U.S., telling the crowd that it is essential to understand “that we operate in a context where slavery evolved into Jim Crow, evolved into mass incarceration, [and] evolved into the realities we have today.”
