UN Treaty Says Children’s Rights Outweigh Parental Rights.

UN Treaty Says Children’s Rights Outweigh Parental Rights!!
This treaty would ban spanking, home schooling, and even church attendance …if the kids reject them!
By: J. D. Longstreet

What we are writing about here is... the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child. This horrific UN treaty has been around for a good 20 years now and 193 countries have signed on to it. Only two countries have not signed it. The US and Somalia! (Go figure!)
The Clinton Administration signed it but it was never sent to the Senate for ratification. It was understood, at the time, that it had a snowball’s chance of being ratified by a Senate with a teaspoon full of common sense. But common sense is something in extremely short supply in the Senate, and the House, for that matter, these day. It is almost certain to be ratified if brought up before the socialist Senate we have today. And... guess what? California democrat (What else), Barbara Boxer, is pushing to have it brought up in the Senate for consideration. More than likely she will have her way.

The bottom line is… the treaty would, first and foremost, strip mothers and fathers of their parental rights! And it would strip the US of its sovereignty and reclassify this country as a vassal state of the United Nations which, of course, means our constitution would be totally useless as we would be ruled by the UN… not by our own laws.

Experts who have studied the document say: “…the treaty, which creates "the right of the child to freedom of thought, conscience and religion" and outlaws the "arbitrary or unlawful interference with his or her privacy," intrudes on the family and strips parents of the power to raise their children without government interference.

Why is this treaty so dangerous to the sovereignty of the United States? A few days ago I wrote of the “Supremacy Clause” in our Constitution. I inferred that it was a dangerous few words. Well here is WHY it is dangerous: Because of the Supremacy Clause, in Article VI of the Constitution, all treaties are rendered "the supreme law of the land," superseding preexisting state and federal statutes. Any rights or laws established by the U.N. convention could then be argued to hold sway in the United States.

So who will say how you can rear and how you can teach your kids? A committee appointed by the UN and sitting in Switzerland, will make the parental decisions for you, for the parents of children in all countries signatory to the treaty. That’s who!

Some even go so far as to suggest that the government will decide how you punish your kids for, oh, say, smoking dope, or… even if you CAN punish your child. The government will decide, if you can make you kids go to church, or not allow them to go to the prom, etc. Parents will no longer be able, legally, to make those decisions. The government will do it.

Ask Steven Groves, a fellow at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank, what he thinks. He will tell you: “To the extent that an outside body, a group of unaccountable so-called experts in Switzerland have a say over how children in America should be raised, educated and disciplined -- that is an erosion of American sovereignty." He is absolutely correct.

None of this matters as Senator Boxer has made it clear she intends to push, energetically, to get the treaty ratified by the US Senate. There is reason to believe the Obama administration will side with Boxer on this and push it through the Senate to ratification.

We are convinced this is all a part of the push for that “One World Government” we continually warn about in this space.

There is an excellent report on this at Fox News. Com

This is absolutely, mind-numbingly chilling. What are these people thinking?
