UN Treaties

Obama’s Sneaky Treaties

By Dick Morris on February 8, 2012

President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are entering negotiations over — or seeking ratification of — five treaties that could radically limit our national sovereignty and the reach of our democratic institutions. Particularly scary is that the treaties, once signed [Article VI- “…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 ratified, have the same status as constitutional law and cannot be altered or eclipsed by Congress or state legislatures. And their provisions must be enforced by U.S. courts.

Once a Treaty is signed by the President and Ratified by the Senate, it falls under the Supremacy Clause of Article VI of our Constitution and will be enforced by the courts. Also, once the United States approves  a UN Treaty, the only way that we can have it rescinded  is to have every United Nations signatory to the Treaty, agree to let us out!

That’s a lot of payola!

A great resource for materials regarding treaties can be found at the Heritage Foundation.  Stephen Groves has testified to Congress about theses treaties and his articles can be found at:     http://www.heritage.org/about/staff/g/steven-groves

Those who wish to preserve our sovereignty and democratic control over our future must rally to block these treaties, either by pressing Obama and Clinton not to sign them or by blocking their ratification.

Call Your Senators and tell them to vote NO!

  +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++• International Criminal Court — Clinton has reversed George W. Bush’s policy and entered into negotiations over U.S. participation in the court. Specifically, the leftists who are sponsoring the court wish to create a new crime of “aggression,” which is essentially going to war without the approval of the United Nations. If we submit to the court’s jurisdiction, our presidents and Cabinet officials could be prosecuted criminally for going to war without U.N. approval. This would, of course, give Russia and China a veto over our military actions. Clinton says she will stop our military’s hands from being tied, but we all must realize that once we accept the International Criminal Court, we go down a slippery slope. The court could even prosecute Americans who have been cleared by our own judicial system.

The Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) has been signed, and the Obama administration — with the aid of RINO Sen. Richard Lugar (Ind.) — will push for its ratification as soon as Lugar’s primary in Indiana is over this year. LOST requires that the United States pay an international body half of its royalties from offshore drilling. The body would then distribute the funds as it sees fit to whichever nations it chooses. The United States would only have one vote out of 160 regarding where the money goes. LOST will also oblige us to hand over our offshore drilling technology to any nation that wants it … for free.  Our own Senator Kerry is leading the charge for this treaty on behalf of the Obama Administration! Senator Kerry has held hearings on the Treaty and allowed 16 People to testify in favor of the treat and only 2 people to testify against the treaty. He is playing hardball, perhaps he is seeking favor to lock in his  next venue as part of  the Obama Administration, should they prevail in November! The word on the street from reliable sources is that Republican Senators who face an election in November have told Senator Kerry that if the treaty is brought up for a vote before November 6th hey would have to vote nay, but after they would vote yea! Ala Obama to Russia’s President Medvedev on an open mic.


President Obama: “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space.

President Medvedev:” Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…

President Obama: “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.”

President Medvedev: “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.”

The American public is being played once again!!!


We must vet our Senators including Senator Brown before the election. After the election will be too late!

Senator Kerry:       Called 7/24- Will Vote FOR Treaty!

Senator Brown:     CALLED 7/23, 8/14  BUT WILL NOT SAY  

Senator Brown:     CALLED 9/28,  Deferred us to Senator Kerry’s Office!


Small-arms control Clinton is about to negotiate on a global ban on export of small arms. It would only apply to private citizens but, of course, most small-arms deals come not from individuals or private firms but from governments, specifically those of the United States, Russia, China and Israel. The treaty would require each nation to adopt measures to stop exportation of small arms. It is easy to see how this could be a backdoor way to require national registration of all guns and to assert federal regulation over firearms. It would also require the registration of all ammunition to track its source once a gun is fired. The Second Amendment be damned!

Senator Kerry:   CALLED 7/23 BUT WILL NOT SAY

Senator Brown: Called 7/23 – Will not support Treaty

Senator Brown: Called 9/28 – Will not support Treaty


Outer Space Code of Conduct — Under the guise of stopping debris from accumulating in outer space, the European Union has enlisted Clinton in negotiations over a code of conduct. The code would prohibit activities that are likely to generate debris in outer space — space littering. The code might inhibit or prohibit the United States from deploying anti-missile missiles on platforms in space, denying us the key weapon we need to counter Iranian, Chinese and North Korean missile threats. European leftists reacted angrily when G.W. Bush opted out of the ABM treaty banning defensive weapons. Now they seek to reimpose it under the guise of a code of conduct.

Senator Kerry:   CALLED 7/24 BUT WILL NOT SAY

Senator Brown: CALLED 7/23 BUT WILL NOT SAY

Senator Brown: CALLED 9/28 BUT WILL NOT SAY


Rights of the Child — Even more fanciful is a treaty Clinton plans to negotiate setting forth a code of rights for children, to be administered by a 14-member court set up for the purpose. The draft treaty obliges rich nations to provide funds for shelter, food, clothing and education for children in poor nations. This provision could create grounds to litigate to challenge the level of foreign aid we give as inadequate to meet our treaty obligations. Already, leftists in the United Kingdom are using the treaty to attack welfare cuts by the Cameron government.

Trick or Treaty

Our very own SENATOR KERRY once again is advocating for “…the global community[which] could force America to sanction sterilization or abortion for the disabled–at taxpayer expense! Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) tried to neutralize the threat yesterday during the mark-up in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Unfortunately, his amendment (which would have stopped the treaty from forcing abortion policy on countries that sign) was thwarted by Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.)

It’s the latest threat to parents’ rights that no one knows about–and yesterday, the Senate moved one step closer to making it the law of the land. Like most U.N. treaties, this one sounds harmless enough. But make no mistake–its innocuous name, Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), masks a cunning attack on parental authority, unborn life, and U.S. sovereignty. Of course, this is a favorite strategy of liberal administrations: using treaties to get radical policies through the country’s backdoor. In this instance, it would bring our nation even closer to President Obama’s apparent goal of putting America under global governance.

As Phyllis Schafly points out, the U.S. already enacted the strongest piece of disabilities legislation in the world. This idea that the U.N. “can provide more benefits or protections for persons with disabilities than the U.S. is bizarre,” she writes in an excellent column that debunks the need for such a treaty. “The United States always treats individuals, able or disabled, rich or poor, innocent or guilty, better than any nation.” Democrats argue that it would help the rest of the world “catch up” to our standards. But, as Sen. Jim DeMint and others have made clear, the U.S. doesn’t need to sign away its rights to provide leadership in that area.

While this is a noble cause that embodies the American ethic–treating people with dignity and respect–it gives the U.N. a profound stake in U.S. law and the rights of people across the country. Specifically, the CRPD takes aim at parents, declaring that an international body–not moms and dads–will be the ultimate authority on issues like education. The treaty slips in phrases like “best interest of the child,” which, as Sen. Rick Santorum pointed out with me on last week’s radio show, are “red alert alarm words.” They mean that government officials or courts will be in the position of deciding what’s in your child’s best interest–not you. Under CRPD, the government would supersede parents in setting course plans for both gifted and special needs kids. The Homeschool Legal Defense Association is concerned–and rightly so. It maintains that this Convention signals a dramatic turnaround in parental rights.

And, of course, it wouldn’t be a U.N. proposal if it didn’t include a backdoor to greater abortion access. “The feminists saw to it that this treaty about disabilities includes language in Article 25 that requires signatories to ‘provide persons with disabilities… free or affordable health care,” Phyllis notes, “including in the area of sexual and reproductive health and population-based health programs.'” Translation: the global community could force America to sanction sterilization or abortion for the disabled–at taxpayer expense! Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) tried to neutralize the threat yesterday during the mark-up in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Unfortunately, his amendment (which would have stopped the treaty from forcing abortion policy on countries that sign) was thwarted by Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) after a debate that you can watch here:

Although Sen. DeMint managed to delay the CRPD a week, the Committee, including three of its Republicans–Sens. John Barrasso (Wy.), Richard Lugar (Ind.), Johnny Isakson (Ga.)–voted yesterday to send the treaty to the Senate floor, where it could be ratified as early as next week. Between now and then, it is absolutely critical for people to see that what’s at stake in this debate, which is nothing short of our authority as parents–and as a nation. By law, the Convention will need 67 votes to pass, which means we need to persuade at least 34 senators to defeat it. Contact your senators today and urge them to vote down this deadly infringement on U.S. sovereignty. Your rights depend on it.

Senator Kerry:       Will vote FOR this Treaty!

Word on the street from reliable sources is that Our Senator Kerry will attempt to push this Treaty thru the Senate in early September as soon as they return to Washington. Our Senator believes that he has the votes to sneak it through while everyone is preoccupied with the election and children returing to school.

The fact of the matter is that this treaty would not benefit a single American!

Senator Brown:     CALLED  8/14  BUT WILL NOT SAY

Senator Brown:     CALLED  9/28  Will Vote FOR his Treaty!


European  liberalism is advancing — masked — by way of these treaties. Defenders of liberty must say no!
