DeMint: U.N. treaty threatens U.S. homeschoolers
World Net Daily ^ | August 14, 2012 | WND

Republican defends against liberals intent on imposing backdoor globalism

In the past few weeks, two proposed United Nations treaties failed to advance. The small-arms treaty failed at the U.N. while opponents of the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) amassed enough votes to block it in the U.S. Senate.

Now, Sen. Jim DeMint,R-S.C., says another U.N. treaty that threatens American sovereignty has been put back on the table by foreign diplomats and their internationalist allies in the federal government. It’s called the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Disabled, which calls for government agents to supersede the authority of parents of disabled children and even covers abortion.

<snip>

“When you look at the language in the treaty you realize there are other things at stake here. A lot of language in there that has nothing to do with disabilities and that is likely to push the U.S. toward more international law,” DeMint told WND.

DeMint says the language of the treaty suggests it will promote abortion and chip away at parental rights — particularly the rights of homeschooling parents.

“Homeschoolers are up in arms. We already have some judges in our country that are using international law to change our laws.

We shouldn’t even be having these conversations. The U.N. is nothing but a sham organization that steals our money.

We should bulldoze the whole damn thing and kick the bastards out of the country.

But we won’t, because NOBODY IN WASHINGTON HAS ANY BALLS WHATSOEVER!

Any treaty that violates the constitution is by definition null and void.

Go DeMint. This is the guy who should be sitting in the White House.

If De Mint were sincere he would propose that no treaty be signed with the UN at any time.

Since when is the UN an independent nation that the US should sign a treaty with it?

Without US financial support, this anti-American institute would have disappeared a long time ago.

” - - - We already have some judges in our country that are using international law to change our laws.”

If Obama wins in November, the long process of holding State Constitutional Conventions will begin.

At that time judicial reform will be high on the list of topics to revise.

Abolishing the silliness of such things as International Law as US Law, will be a pleasure.

“We’re afraid that if the language suggests that parental authority is not absolute, we’re going to have an international body telling our parents they can’t homeschool.”

If a judge uses international law to come for my kids because we homeschool, that's a judge whose days are short on this earth.

True, but with conservatives like Roberts on the Supreme Court, the constitution is meaningless.
