  • Obama sends UN Arms Trade Treaty to the Senate

    12/13/2016 2:32:56 PM PST · by PROCON · 42 replies ^ | Dec. 13, 2016 | Chris Eger
    President Obama transmitted the controversial Arms Trade Treaty, which seeks to regulate the world’s annual exchange of $70 billion in conventional weaponry, to the Senate on Friday. In April 2013, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Arms Trade Treaty that aims to regulate the international trade in conventional weapons ranging from small arms to warships. The U.S. signed the treaty along with some 129 other countries but Congress has not ratified it. The Senate would have to pass the ATT with a two-thirds majority and at least 50 Senators went on record soon after Kerry’s action by sending...
  • Obama Officials Heading to Mexico to Discuss International Gun Control Via UN Treaty

    On August 24 officials from the Obama administration will be attending the UN Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) conference in Mexico City. The ATT was signed by Secretary of State John Kerry on September 25, 2013 but never ratified by the US Senate. Nevertheless, Gun Owners of America reports that Obama officials will be in Mexico City for the conference. Breitbart News previously reported that the ATT is an international gun control treaty designed to be implemented apart from, or in spite of, the general framework of governance for countries that are signatories to it. Thus, while it will not do...
  • Idaho’s [Senator] Risch vows to stall U.N. arms treaty

    WASHINGTON – An international framework for controlling the global arms trade appears to be headed for a brick wall on Capitol Hill, and Idaho’s junior senator is among the chief bricklayers. “Save your ink. It’s not going anywhere,” U.S. Sen. Jim Risch said this week. The United Nations arms trade treaty, approved by an overwhelming majority of countries Tuesday, seeks to regulate an industry that topped $85 billion in 2011, according to the Congressional Research Service. But the Senate will have the final say on whether the United States joins the pact. Risch and other senators on both sides of the...
  • U.N. Disabilities Treaty Would Limit U.S. Sovereignty

    Rights: The Senate is considering a treaty which says "disability is an evolving concept" and which would infringe on U.S. sovereignty and the right to raise our children as American families see fit. Those who thought that the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) adequately guaranteed the rights of the handicapped to have access to all facets of American life were apparently wrong. The U.S. Senate is considering ratifying the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), which President Obama signed in 2009 and which goes well beyond mandating wheel-chair ramps for public buildings. CRPD doesn't even bother to...
  • UN Treaty Mischief on Disabilities

    The United Nations in collusion with Obama's globalists has cooked up another scheme to slice off a piece of U.S. sovereignty and put us under global government. The plan is to stampede the Senate into ratifying the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, CRPD. This particular piece of globalist mischief had been unnoticed since President Obama ordered U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to sign this treaty on July 30, 2009. Now he is trying to ram it through to ratification. The notion that the U.N. can provide more benefits or protections for persons with disabilities than the U.S....
  • New Treat Alert: US to Ratify by July 26: CRPD = UN Rights of Persons with Disabilities

    Senator John Kerry (D-Mass), after being told to stuff his Law of the Sea Treaty (at least for this year), has announed he WILL pass the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) by July 26, 2012. Obama signed the Treaty in 2009. Now it has to make it out of Kerry's Committee, which is a given, and then must pass a two-thirds vote in the Senate. If Democrats, with the help of some Republicans, pull this off, it will be the "first time the U.S. has ratified a treaty that substantially impacts domestic law." This is...

    Why would Americans buy 150,000 more guns last month than a year ago? All told, gun sales, which skyrocketed in 2008 in advance of the presidential election then fell back somewhat to normal in 2009, are up 27% overall this year compared with 2011 numbers.

    If you're a parent, you are probably too busy doing the day-to-day work of raising your children to worry about an international treaty that could actually undermine your authority over them. But if you've ever insisted that your teenager drag himself out of bed on a Sunday morning to attend church with the family, or required him to find a part-time job to pay for the increase in your car insurance, or — heaven forbid — if you've ever spanked a young child for an act of willful disobedience, there are folks who would like to override your parental judgment....

    Arms control activists urged U.N. treaty writers on Monday to approve a system for tracking small arms sales around the world, saying it was easier to track lost airline luggage than a machine gun. Amnesty International, Oxfam International and the International Action Network on Small Arms called for a legally binding global marking and tracing treaty covering small arms and ammunition at the start of a two-week U.N. conference weighing how to deal with the problem. "A piece of lost luggage can be traced from San Francisco to Sierra Leone within hours, yet deadly weapons disappear without trace on a...
  • United Nations Power Grab -- STOP IT NOW!

    Once again, the United Nations is trying a power grab, at the expense of the sovereignty of the United States of America -- and this time, they want to allow international bureaucrats to TAX the American people. They MUST be stopped. According to the American Policy Center (, "any day now this nation could find itself part of an international treaty that abolishes freedom on seven-tenths of the world's surface." That's because the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea, a treaty that has remained dead in the water since Bill Clinton's presidency, has re-emerged as a threat to...
