…disguised as a treaty to help disabled persons.

The US already stands head and shoulders above the rest of the world when it comes to helping those with disabilities. The UN is just trying to get more power. 

The UN has outgrown its usefulness.

Disabilities Treaty Just Another U.N. Power Grab
Amy Payne

International treaties sound like a good idea, especially when they claim to protect vulnerable people. The problem is, America already does more than any other country to ensure equal rights for its people—and the United Nations just wants the power to interfere in American law.

The Senate is now considering the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). President Obama signed this treaty in 2009, but the Senate has yet to agree to it. It needs a two-thirds majority of Senators to ratify it. In September, 36 Republican Senators signed a letter stating that they would oppose any treaties that came up for a vote during the lame-duck session of Congress. We will see now whether that promise holds.

U.N. to Seek Control of the Internet
By DANIEL HALPER

Next week the United Nations’ International Telecommunications Union will meet in Dubai to figure out how to control the Internet. Representatives from 193 nations will attend the nearly two week long meeting, according to news reports.

“Next week the ITU holds a negotiating conference in Dubai, and past months have brought many leaks of proposals for a new treaty. U.S. congressional resolutions and much of the commentary, including in this column, have focused on proposals by authoritarian governments to censor the Internet. Just as objectionable are proposals that ignore how the Internet works, threatening its smooth and open operations,” reports the Wall Street Journal.

“Having the Internet rewired by bureaucrats would be like handing a Stradivarius to a gorilla. The Internet is made up of 40,000 networks that interconnect among 425,000 global routes, cheaply and efficiently delivering messages and other digital content among more than two billion people around the world, with some 500,000 new users a day.

…and now that the Senate is deeper into the Democrat pocket, the UN Arms Treaty is back on the table.

This is a direct threat to the Constitution of the United States. It’s an assault on the Second Amendment by a world body that is corrupt to the core and will effect generations of Americans if it is allowed to go forward. With the new Senate make-up, it is a good possibility for this treaty to be ratified without any opposition from Republicans.

I suggest you go out and buy your guns and ammo as soon as you can. I will stock up on more ammo and am considering buying another weapon or two, funds permitting.

The official line from the government is that they aren’t going to accept a treaty that infringes on America’s rights. I don’t believe that for a second.

After Obama win, U.S. backs new U.N. arms treaty talks

(Reuters) – Hours after U.S. President Barack Obama was re-elected, the United States backed a U.N. committee’s call on Wednesday to renew debate over a draft international treaty to regulate the $70 billion global conventional arms trade.

U.N. delegates and gun control activists have complained that talks collapsed in July largely because Obama feared attacks from Republican rival Mitt Romney if his administration was seen as supporting the pact, a charge Washington denies.

The month-long talks at U.N. headquarters broke off after the United States – along with Russia and other major arms producers – said it had problems with the draft treaty and asked for more time.

But the U.N. General Assembly’s disarmament committee moved quickly after Obama’s win to approve a resolution calling for a new round of talks March 18-28. It passed with 157 votes in favor, none against and 18 abstentions.

U.N. diplomats said the vote had been expected before Tuesday’s U.S. presidential election but was delayed due to Superstorm Sandy, which ca

used a three-day closure of the United Nations last week.

An official at the U.S. mission said Washington’s objectives have not changed.

“We seek a treaty that contributes to international security by fighting illicit arms trafficking and proliferation, protects the sovereign right of states to conduct legitimate arms trade, and meets the concerns that we have been articulating throughout,” the official said.

“We will not accept any treaty that infringes on the constitutional rights of our citizens to bear arms,” he said.

…that do business with Israel. This is just another point of stupidity that is foisted on the world by an organization that is more corrupt than any other on the planet.

It is high time that the US stop all funding for the UN and to kick them the hell out of America. It is a failure on a grand scale similar to its predecessor the League of Nations.

Unbelievable.

U.N. Human Rights Council Calls for Boycott of U.S. Companies

U.N.’s war on Israel puts American economy in crosshairs

The Washington Free Beacon has obtained a report soon to be released by the United Nations that calls for an international campaign of legal attacks and economic warfare on a group of American companies that do business in Israel, including Hewlett-Packard, Caterpillar Inc., and Motorola Solutions Inc.

The Human Rights Council (HRC), a body dominated by Islamic countries and known for its hostility to, and heavy focus on, the Jewish State, issued the report. The George W. Bush administration refused to participate in the HRC, but President Barack Obama joined it soon after taking office. Members of the HRC include infamous human rights abusers such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan, Libya, China, and Cuba.

The Obama-approved body maintains a “Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories [sic].” The current rapporteur is American college professor Richard Falk, a 9/11 “truther” who once posted an anti-Semitic cartoon on his personal blog.

In a letter to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon, the Anti-Defamation League’s Abraham Foxman blasted the report and the HRC’s special rapporteur: “We believe you should have prevented the Secretariat from being a party to Mr. Falk’s anti-Israel agenda. Mr. Falk’s entire tenure as Special Rapporteur has served to undermine the credibility of the institution of the United Nations.”

The report attempts to instigate a campaign of boycott, divestment, sanctions, and legal action against a litany of international companies doing business in Israel. In addition to American companies, the U.N. targets include major European firms such as Veolia Environnement, Group 4 Security, the Dexia Group, the Volvo Group.

in its tracks now! This organization is the epitome of stupid. They put rogue nations in charge of, or participants to their Human Rights Council, they do everything in their power to globalize any issue they can dream up, especially if it flies in the face of American sovereignty.

And Obummer is trying to help them out.

This out of control globalist organization needs to be kicked the fuck out of America, and we should stop giving these douche bags any money whatsoever.

Without our funds, this organization would dry up and blow away.

UN arms treaty could put U.S. gun owners in foreign sights, say critics

UNITED NATIONS –  A treaty being hammered out this month at the United Nations — with Iran playing a key role — could expose the records of America’s gun owners to foreign governments — and, critics warn, eventually put the Second Amendment on global trial.

International talks in New York are going on throughout July on the final wording of the so-called Arms Trade Treaty, which supporters such as Amnesty International USA say would rein in unregulated weapons that kill an estimated 1,500 people daily around the world. But critics, including the National Rifle Association’s Wayne LaPierre, warn the treaty would mark a major step toward the eventual erosion of the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment gun-ownership rights.

Americans “just don’t want the UN to be acting as a global nanny with a global permission slip stating whether they can own a gun or not,” LaPierre said. “It cheapens our rights as American citizens, and weakens our sovereignty,” he warned in an exclusive interview with FoxNews.com from the halls of the UN negotiating chambers.

Not only would they affect the United States’ freedoms, but would also prevent developing countries from accessing the internet at all. I think it is just another attempt by the UN to limit free speech and get more funds from the US.

The UN needs to be disbanded entirely. They’re useless. They don’t prevent shit. All they do is infringe on the sovereignty of member nations, and attempt to bring the US down to third world status.

Any politician that sides with the UN, needs to be fired.

U.N. could tax U.S.-based Web sites, leaked docs show

Global Internet tax suggested by European network operators, who want Apple, Google, and other Web companies to pay to deliver content, is proposed for debate at a U.N. agency in December.

The United Nations is considering a new Internet tax targeting the largest Web content providers, including Google, Facebook, Apple, and Netflix, that could cripple their ability to reach users in developing nations.

The European proposal, offered for debate at a December meeting of a U.N. agency called the International Telecommunication Union, would amend an existing telecommunications treaty by imposing heavy costs on popular Web sites and their network providers for the privilege of serving non-U.S. users, according to newly leaked documents.

The documents (No. 1 No. 2) punctuate warnings that the Obama administration and Republican members of Congress raised last week about how secret negotiations at the ITU over an international communications treaty could result in a radical re-engineering of the Internet ecosystem and allow governments to monitor or restrict their citizens’ online activities.

“It’s extremely worrisome,” Sally Shipman Wentworth, senior manager for public policy at the Internet Society, says about the proposed Internet taxes. “It could create an enormous amount of legal uncertainty and commercial uncertainty.”

We need to keep up the pressure on the Democrat idiots that would willingly hand over our sovereignty and freedoms to a huge bureaucracy with no accountability to the American people.

Sen. Moran Amendment Accepted to Protect Second Amendment Rights of Americans

“America will not be infringed upon by an organization with little respect for gun rights”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-KS) introduced an amendment today to protect the rights of American gun owners from the effects of a U.N. Arms Trade Treaty in the Senate Appropriations Committee. The Second Amendment Sovereignty Act passed in committee today and would prevent the Obama Administration from negotiating an Arms Trade Treaty that restricts in any way Americans’ Second Amendment rights, or that regulates the domestic manufacture, possession or purchase of firearms and ammunition – therefore restricting the lawful private ownership of firearms in the United States.

“Our freedoms and our country’s sovereignty are in danger of being undermined. This amendment seeks to reinforce that our country’s sovereignty and firearm freedoms will not be infringed upon by an international organization made up of many countries with little respect for gun rights,” Sen. Moran said. “By prohibiting funding for the negotiation of an Arms Trade Treaty, this amendment will help make certain the rights of Americans are protected. America leads the world in export standards to ensure arms are transferred for legitimate purposes and my amendment will make certain that law-abiding Americans are not wrongfully punished.”

“The United Nations must be prevented from interfering with our constitutional freedoms. Equally important, American taxpayers should not be forced to foot the bill for the U.N.’s efforts to restrict our Right to Keep and Bear Arms,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director for NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. “The NRA would like to thank Senator Moran for his leadership in offering this amendment to protect American freedom.”

The UN is trying to control the Internet. This organization is the most dangerous bunch of asswipes on the planet.

Write your Congressional douche bags and let them know how you that this is just another attempt at controlling the Internet and crushing freedom through global governance.

By Brendan Sasso

House lawmakers will consider an international proposal next week to give the United Nations more control over the Internet.

The proposal is backed by China, Russia, Brazil, India and other UN members, and would give the UN’s International Telecommunication Union (ITU) more control over the governance of the Internet.

It’s an unpopular idea with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle in Congress, and officials with the Obama administration have also criticized it.

“We’re quite concerned,” Larry Strickling, the head of the Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration, said n an interview with The Hill earlier this year.

He said the measure would expose the Internet to “top-down regulation where’s it’s really the governments that are at the table but the rest of the stakeholders aren’t.”

Here’s some great news on the Second Amendment front. Senator John Tester was successful in blocking government funding from being used to help the UN advance its Arms Trade Treaty.

Tester Leads Senate in Blocking U.N. Arms Treaty

U.S. SENATE –(Ammoland.com)- Standing up for Montanans’ Second Amendment rights, Senator Jon Tester today successfully blocked government funding from being used to advance the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.

Tester’s bipartisan amendment, which unanimously passed the powerful Senate Appropriations Committee, prevents spending to advocate for or agree to any treaty provision that would that would restrict Americans’ gun rights.

“Firearms possession is guaranteed by the Second Amendment and cannot be surrendered to an international treaty,” said Tester, chairman of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus and a lifelong champion of gun rights. “As a staunch defender of the U.S. Constitution, I won’t let any treaty impede our Constitutional rights and infringe on our way of life.”

I hate the UN. I think it is a liberal bastion of insanity and kowtows to the worst of the worst in global politics.  Human rights violators on the UN Human Rights Council, what insanity must surely be at work with people that would willingly appoint the perpetrators of human rights atrocities to the very body that was meant to stop this?

Anything, and I mean anything that the UN does must be looked at through a jaundiced eyes with liberals and their cohorts.

Everything that the UN does goes against the sovereignty of the United States, or other countries. It is a useless organization. A cash cow for despots around the world. Here’s Charlie Daniels discussing Agenda 21.

Agenda 21 – Part One

“The American system of justice must be changed to conform to the rest of the world, and there must be a shift in attitudes. Individual wants, needs and desires are to be conformed to the views and dictates of government planners. In the process of implementing sustainable development, individual rights will have to take a back seat to the collective.”

If you had to wager a guess, where would you think these words came from? A heretofore-undiscovered George Orwell novel? A Hollywood writer scripting a film about a fictitious repressive government of the distant future? Perhaps a portion of the Marxist communist manifesto?

Well, you would be wrong on all counts.

This is one of the goals and intentions of the United Nation’s Agenda 21, which is in its infant days of being implemented at this very moment with the full knowledge and approval of high government officials and extremely powerful people around the world.

For years we’ve heard bits and pieces about our federal government giving little bits of our sovereignty over to the UN, its been happening so gradually and so secretively that it has stayed below the radar of most of us.

National parks, wetlands, people going to jail for violating some international treaty they had no idea even existed, regarding what they can and cannot do on our own land.

In the next few Soapbox articles we will try to shed some light on the scope and deadly seriousness of this global power grab that threatens the freedom of every man, woman and child in this nation, and for that matter, this planet.

You’re already hearing the rhetoric as the terminology evolves with phrases like, paying your fair share, sharing the wealth and making the rich pay more are creeping into the political and media lexicon and being widely accepted as a remedy to America’s fiscal woes.

This theory is not only misleading but an out and out, bald faced lie and the
Politicians who are promoting it know that even if they get the tax increases on the wealthy they’re calling for, it will not even service the interest on the national debt.

The politics of globalism is not to better the human condition, but to control it, to convince the have-nots that the reason they are not better off, is that they have been treated unfairly by those who have more than they do. That somehow they have been cheated out of a level playing field and their opportunity at the American dream by the callousness and greed of the successful.

And since they have been treated unfairly the have-nots have a right to a portion of the ill-gotten gains of those who are better off, after all.

It’s so much easier to blame your condition on someone else than it is to accept responsibility for your own life, notwithstanding the difference in work ethic, morals and the pursuit of education.

After all, it must be a quirk of life that he has more than I do, I deserve some of what he has, and it’s only fair, right?

This attitude promotes deep divisions along racial, social and economic
lines and makes the job of those who promote such theories much easier.

A divided population is much easier to conquer, to persuade them that everybody should have an equal sized piece of the pie.

It’s called socialism.

That is the basic and ultimate goal of the United Nations and the powerful puppet masters who sit in the shadows and pull the strings.

Chaos actually benefits their purposes; they exploit the fear and hate of the masses by having all the answers, just keep us in power and we’ll see to it that everybody shares in the wealth.

Power is the name of this game. global power, and in the next few soapboxes we will explore, expose, warn and talk about what “We The People” can do about this hellish plot.

Prepare to be shocked; we have only skimmed the surface and what lies below is sobering and chilling and hopefully a wake up call to those who care about the future of our beloved United States of America.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops, and for our country.

God Bless America
