UNCRC Assault on Parental Rights to Be Expedited

Every parent needs to hear about the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) and then tell everyone they can.  This threat to state sovereignty and parental rights is only a vote away from ratification in the United States.

Be Educated!  Senate ratification of the UNCRC would be the death knell for Parental Rights as we know them.  We can’t let the opposition redefine and overturn state parental rights laws simply because we are too ignorant to protest.

Go Fight Win!

From ParentalRights.org: State Department to Expedite the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child


After Ambassador Susan Rice’s inability to make an “iron-clad commitment” for immediate ratification, Boxer will ask Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for U.S.support of the UNCRC.

The U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), which opponents say could destroy American sovereignty by imposing international rulings on American law, could reach the Senate within 60 days. Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) says she wants a 60-day timeframe for the State Department to complete its review so the Senate can move toward ratification of the UNCRC. During the Senate Confirmation hearing between Boxer and UN Ambassador-designate Susan Rice held on January 15, 2009, Boxer told Rice the UNCRC would protect “the most vulnerable people of society.”

Opponents vehemently disagree. Under the Supremacy Clause (Article VI) of the U.S. Constitution, ratified treaties preempt state law. Since virtually all laws in the U.S. regarding children are state laws, this treaty would negate nearly 100% of existing American family law. Moreover, it would grant the government authority to override parental decisions by applying even to good parents a standard now only used against those convicted of abuse or neglect.

In the hearing, Rice promised to review the treaty but noted “challenges of domestic implementation.” Rice also resisted a strict timeframe: “I don’t have a sense of how long it will take us, in light of the many different things on our plate,” she said.

Calling it a “complicated treaty,” Rice expressed her commitment to the treaty’s objectives, but when Rice concluded that she could not meet the Senator’s strict timeframe, Boxer said they would take it up with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

    How can this happen when words of the treaty are in conflict with what US citizens hold most dear, liberty and freedom?

    This can happen when good men & good women do nothing. Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

    Quote from US Constiution:

    “This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.”

    Wikipedia quote
    “The Supremacy Clause is a clause in the United States Constitution, article VI, paragraph 2. The clause establishes the Constitution, Federal Statutes, and U.S. treaties as “the supreme law of the land”. The text establishes these as the highest form of law in the American legal system, mandating that state judges uphold them, even if state laws or constitutions conflict.”

    Wikipedia page on UN charter
    quote from top of the page

    “The United Nations Charter is the treaty that forms and establishes the international organization called the United Nations.”

    therefore all signers of the treaty and Members of the UN are subject to decisions by the UN

    list of required signers:
    China (originally Republic of China)
    Russia (originally USSR)

    there fore the US is legally required to follow any and all passed UN Resolutions

    although notably Seery v. United States, 127 F. Supp. 601 (Court of Claims, 1955) and Reid v. Covert, 354 U.S. 1 (1957) might ease concerns between contradictions between the Constitution and the UN charter

    Spiritually However
    its just the end times, get over it.

    Have any of you actually READ the thing? The preamble states: “Convinced that the family, as the fundamental group of society and the natural environment for the
    growth and well-being of all its members and particularly children, should be afforded the necessary
    protection and assistance so that it can fully assume its responsibilities within the community,”

    I can assure you morons, the family will not lose autonomy over the UNCRC. The UNCRC does the opposite, it STRESSES the importance of families.
    seriously people, do your research.

    Roy, read beyond the perfunctory stuff. The question is, who decides what is best for children and should they be the ones deciding? Tyranny always comes wrapped in good intentions.
