Senator Kerry: We’ll Pass the CRPD by July 26
HSLDA website ^ | 7/13/2012 | Michael P. Farris, Esq., LL.M.

Posted on 07/13/2012 12:06:40 PM PDT by Mrs. P

Senator John Kerry announced yesterday that he plans to pass the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities before July 26—just 13 days from today. He has scheduled a formal committee vote next Thursday—July 19. This is an unprecedented attempt to jam a binding international treaty through the Senate without proper time for debate or consideration.

I cannot think of a treaty signed in the last 20 years that has made things better for American citizens.

Article 7 of the UNCRPD gives government the ability to override every decision of a parent of disabled children if the government thinks that its views are in “the best interest of the child.”

Just wonderfull. More freedom killing UN treaties..... If you have a disabled child the Obamacare doctor gets to make the decisions.

Hopefully people with disabled children will stop taking money from the government and raise their own children without the help of government. It is costing the government a fortune to raise these kids. If you take the money, you don’t have a say. Stop taking the money and you can raise the child as you see fit.

I think there is a worse one coming up on the 27th. Hitlery is supposed to sign a gun control treaty that restricts the right to own handguns. The Toe Sucker has been talking about it.

Some where in this treaty will be a provision to make DumBO hereditary dictator for life and it will become part of the Constitution.

Does all of this just scream “we’re losing in November so let’s jam everything down their throats now”. Think what a lame duck for this bunch will be like.

To the GOPe in Congress: Can you PULEEEEEZE find your brass ones for just a few months until WE the PEOPLE send in some fresh faces in January?

We are sick to death of the NON leadership from boo hoo boner and “I’m disappointed at the Dems” McConnell. For Cryin Out LOUD GOPe - GET with the program, will ya?

Pray for this nation.

Seems like the refresher course in treaties was well justified and warranted.
How many saw it is the issue.

I don't think you'll disagree with my editorial preference.

Handing more power to Federal courts to morph what constitutes "equal protection" is never a good idea.

I agree. If I ever found myself on the same side of an issue with this treasonous traitor I’d have to do some serious soul searching. As long as we disagree, I know I’m on the right side!

Let’s retire the term “RINO”. It’s too easy to plop that label on people without giving a rationale. Intellectually lazy.

He's going to need the help of 65 or so others to do it.

No, not necessarily. Here's your refresher course.
2/3 of Senators present can ratify a treaty.

For example...
@ PROCEEDINGS AND DEBATES OF THE 106th CONGRESS, SECOND SESSION

S10667

The PRESIDING OFFICER. A division has been requested.
Senators in favor of the ratification of this treaty, please raise their hand. (After a pause.) Those opposed will raise their hands.
With two-thirds of the Senators present having voted in the affirmative, the resolution of ratification is agreed to.
Mr. THOMAS. I thank the Presiding Officer, the Senator from West Virginia, and the clerk.
By the way, just for information, these treaties were all approved by the Foreign Relations Committee on October 4 and 5.

2/3 of the Senate wasn't there. Those present voted for the ratification. The quorum call was rescinded with no objection. That's 34 treaties ratified with a hand count!
It doesn't matter if they aren't present when the vote comes up.

So we have the potential of all these "stand up guys" simply not showing up when it comes time to vote and they can then truthfully claim "I was against this treaty".

They need to formalize their intent to object.
Executive Calendar

When a notice of intent to object is given to the appropriate leader, or their designee, and such notice is submitted for inclusion in the Congressional Record and the Senate Executive Calendar, or following the objection to a unanimous consent to proceeding to, and, or disposition of, matters relating to nominations and treaties on their behalf, it shall be placed in the section of the Senate Executive Calendar entitled “Notice of Intent to Object ”. (S. Res. 28, 112th Congress) Don't forget the importance of this either... When a notice of intent to object is given to the appropriate leader, or their designee, and such notice is submitted for inclusion in the Congressional Record and the Senate Executive Calendar...

It could be ratified due to one person simply not doing their job properly.

If the vote is taken on the 19th it moves to the Senate that day if passed. There is no lag so I see no reason to have this July 26 mention. Action could come as soon as the 20th or 21st!

Senate Consideration of Treaties September 15, 2009

If the committee votes to report a treaty, it is placed on the Senate’s Executive Calendar and must lie over on this calendar for one day before floor consideration. The Senate may waive this layover requirement by unanimous consent.

They tell the Senate it passed and the Senate acts then or sits on it.

Again, homework done! Note the date!

Here, Mike Darancette, read this from the link above.

Under Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution, the final vote on agreeing to the resolution of ratification, with whatever reservations or other propositions may have been attached to it, requires a vote of two-thirds of the Senators present and voting (a quorum being present). A two-thirds vote also is required to agree to a motion to postpone indefinitely further consideration of the treaty and accompanying resolution, because adopting that motion has the effect of disposing of the treaty permanently.

@ quorum
The number of senators that must be present for the Senate to do business. The Constitution requires a majority of senators (51) for a quorum. Often, fewer senators are actually present on the floor, but the Senate presumes that a quorum is present unless the contrary is shown by a roll call vote or quorum call.

If you go to that article on the HSLDA site and use their link it is VERY easy to email your Senator. They even do the letter for you. A few clicks and it’s all over. Painless.

I'd be willing to bet that the first three of us in your ping already know quite well how to contact our Senators.

As for myself, I get tired of getting back form letter replies...

Thanks for your concern about...yada, yada, yada

The staff sees e-mails and replies to them, Senators don't. I'm many things and naive isn't one of them.
You write them an actual letter...and you still get back a form letter. {;^)

Hate to tell you but emails are ignored by congresscritters because they can be automated as you pointed out and therefore lack the passion a handwritten letter or phone call has.

Unfortunately article 7 of this document states that the GOVERNMENT decides what happens with your disabled child if/when they get homeschooled and what treatment(s) they receive. I know *many* families who have a mildly autistic child who homeschool specifically to get away from the abuse (molestation) that occurs to some of these children. If this treaty is passed those children would be put in the system over the objections of their parents.

These parents currently take NO money from the government.

It will end up costing you MUCH more money. Not just the autistics, but the adhd/add kids that are being homeschooled to avoid drugging with psych drugs.

This would effectively put the UN (via local unelected social worker) in charge of homeschooling in this country. Think this doesn’t mean anything to you because YOU don’t have a ‘disabled’ child like Sarah Palin? Think again!

I can easily see where homeschooled kids would have to be evaluated by a social worker to determine if, in fact, they had a disability and be ‘approved’ for homeschooling.

Does your 7yr old boy still reverse his N’s and S’s when he writes them and mix up D’s and B’s? Dyslexia! No homeschooling for you!

Is your 8yr old girl a little clumsy? Dyxpraxia! No homeschooling for you!

Does your 5yr old boy have ants in his pants? ADHD! No homeschooling for you!

Does your 12yr old boy stutter? Speech impediment! No homeschooling for you!

Does your 13yr old daughter HATE HATE HATE math? Dyscalculia! No homeschooling for you!

Is your 14yr old son a bit shy? You have an Aspie! No homeschooling for you!

There aren’t very many kids that could pass a biased (and if you think it would be fair you haven’t paid attention to the UN lately...) ‘examination’ for disability in order to be ‘approved’ to be homeschooled.

Again, THIS will put the UN via unelected bureaucrats in total control of the ENTIRE homeschooling movement in this country. Your ability to homeschool at ALL will be subject to prior ‘approval’.

This is NOT just about the Downs or severely autistic kids. Not. At. All.
