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.

The taxpayers of this country are keeping the UN in the style they have become accustom. The countries that are running the UN are some of the most Barbaric in the World. We had Susan Rice sitting there like a bobbing doll  following the Obumo's policies of leading from behind or voting present.   Now she will be the Natl Security Advisor to the Pres.    The safety of this country is in serious decay with this administration..with the support of the Dems in the Senate and House.

Tell Robert Menendez to SIT DOWN and SHUT UP and then lets tell the United Nations to ROLL UP THEIR TENTS and get the hell out of the United States. Get the UNITED STATES out of the United Nations.

Menendez should have been out of office long ago ,but some A$$hole keep voting him in .

we have our own Laws, and why are there thousands of Russian troops in America now?
Claire can you provide a source for "... thousands of Russian troops in America now"?

I have heard about some -- a few dozen -- on an exchange program. We have a few in Russia, too. But I've heard nothing about thousands being here.

What's this go to do with home schooling?  What a lousy article.

For those who are unaware, there is a new battle confronting for our children. You MUST learn the new curriculum being set into place with the purpose of turning our children, the next generation, into socialists / communists. This is part of the reason that enrollment for homeschooling is up 7 times more than kindergarten enrollment. Everyone MUST see what is in the agenda for our children:

Subject: Common Core- Federal Gov't Takes Complete Control of Education

Common Core is unconstitutionally being implemented in 45 states.  It empowers the Federal government to control student curriculum, from first grade through college.  It prepares kids to be part of a national industrial system, rather than full citizens in a free republic.  Teachers may not add or delete anything in teaching.  They have no freedoms in teaching.  And when it is not working for a child, there is no one the teacher can go to.  All children are treated exactly the same.

It also includes a student tracking system, which details the students history and tracks him throughout his life.

Watch video and see how this socialist system is indoctrinating our kids:

One question -  WHY???  Why would the U.S. citizen of a sovereign country need a UN treaty dictating our internal affairs?  In a world beset with children who are economically, physically and nutritionally abused, why would an American child- not exclusively, but typically, doted on and well cared for- need an external treaty composed by a legion of third-world dictators?  Does any of this make sense? That valuable piece of real estate given to the UN needs to be taken back, and they need to leave our shores for good.  Please write your Congresspeople about this insane treaty.  

Laura wondered: "Why would the U.S. citizen of a sovereign country need a UN treaty dictating our internal affairs? In a world beset with children who are economically, physically and nutritionally abused, why would an American child- not exclusively, but typically, doted on and well cared for- need an external treaty composed by a legion of third-world dictators?"

Ummm ... "So our elites can feel good about how citizen-y of the world they are"? Yeah, I'll go with that ... to make our elites feel good about themselves.

I used to feel that the U.N. was useful if sometimes foolish. Now, not so much; more than allowing a forum for exchange of ideas it provides a place for thugocracies to beat a tin pan. Look at the UN's treatment of Israel if you want a sample.

Yeah, I'm ready to give 'em five years notice to find a new home and shut down our contribution. The grownup nations can make treaties and will generally stick to them; the rest are just so much noise.

This country is gone. Everyone sits around and complains and does nothing.

That's you. 

My eight children attended public schools, and they all graduated in the top ten percent of their high-school classes; three were valedictorians, and one of those was a university valedictorian.  Mother and I spent at least ten hours per week teaching truth and undoing the indoctrination that was occurring.  My children, may God bless them all, are ALL homeschooling their children.

I served proudly in The United States Marine Corps, and I am still fit enough to take part in the inevitable upcoming fight.

I have done -- and will do -- plenty.

These people are so stupid if they think I or any other American is going to allow the UN to tell us what to do on any subject.

Piss off. We will never give up our guns for this very reason. BTW I was at wal mart yesterday and bought a ice chest made in USA. All the choices were made in USA. I couldn't believe it. But wait. They also had their bullet case half full. It included some .223 rounds. Then to my greatest joy they had a sig sauer assault rifle. Wow! Can you believe it?

SWEET: Republican Representative Introduces Resolution To Expel Nancy Pelosi From Congress

Louisiana Republican Rep. Ralph Abraham has introduced legislation to expel Speaker Nancy Pelosi from the House of Representatives.

Abraham’s resolution accuses Pelosi of a “vicious crusade” against President Donald Trump.

“Nancy Pelosi’s vicious crusade against our lawfully-elected President is nothing more than a politically-motivated witch hunt and it must be stopped,” Abraham said in a statement obtained by Fox News. “She has disgraced the people’s House and weaponized the Speaker’s gavel for her party’s political gain.”

“House Democrats spent nearly three years obsessed with election meddling only to dwarf any such efforts with their own deceitful plan to nullify the 2016 election and prevent President Trump from winning in 2020,” the statement continued. “I have introduced a resolution calling for her to be expelled from the House and for the Speaker’s Office to be vacated.”

The text of the resolution, which is most definitely not going to pass the Democrat-controlled House reads: “Resolved, That pursuant to Article 1, Section 5, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution, Representative Nancy Pelosi be, and she hereby is, expelled from the House of Representatives and the Office of the Speaker is declared to be vacant.”

Fox News notes that constitutional clause holds that “Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behaviour, and, with the Concurrence of two thirds, expel a Member.”
