Senator Boxer Pushes to Ratify UN Treaty.

This post is for all you lucky folks in California who have to deal with Senator Barbara Boxer’s thinking. I guess she doesn't have enough important things to do so she dug up a nearly 20-year old international agreement that she wants ratified.


The United Nations Treaty (Chapter IV: Human Rights) is meant to expand the rights of children. This is a dangerous treaty. It does nothing to secure human rights: as it is almost impossible to control criminals and the criminally insane. It does more to put restrictions on parental rights. Don't get me wrong. I am all for protecting human rights. I am a mother and grandmother. But I am also one who believes that the rights of the parent(s) to raise his or her child are first and foremost.

This treaty, if ratified by the United States, will usurp our own Constitution. It would supercede U.S. sovereignty! This is a ploy for those who want to push International Law when interpreting our Constitution, such as we hear from Justice Anthony Kennedy. And, as far as protecting girls who Sen. Boxer feels we should do, via her quote, "...look around the world and see these girls that are having acid thrown in their faces," well, the UN agreement will not affect Islamic Sharia law. The article referenced above mentions that acid attacks on girls continue in Afghanistan, which is already party to the convention. Once again, bad people do not honor laws or treaties. I wish she would get hot for something that would protect our borders. At the very least, she should stop supporting San Francisco's policy of being a "sanctuary city".

THIS IS WHO I AM

Utah, United States
I am a retired grandmother who lost her husband of 42 years in 2010, to cancer. I relocated from Ventura, CA to a community near Salt Lake City, Utah to be with my son, daughter-in-law and two granddaughters. I am a believer in Jesus our Lord and in the true Sabbath as our worship day. I am learning more and more about what our role is here on Earth as well as what it will be when Yahshua returns. I love crochet, watercolors, and writing. My newest passion is writing poetry. I would love to hear from others who enjoy these crafts; come visit and share your interests.

POLITICAL WATCH


JULY 4 - Time For Tea


The American people came out on July 4 to protest high taxes and run-a-way government spending. From 11:00 till 2:00 p.m., citizens of Ventura, CA came out to show their support for less taxes and less government interference. As a spectator and one who attended the first Ventura Tea Party, I would say we doubled the turnout of patriots.

All across the country the signs, flags and banners that were carried at the tea parties showed the position that the American people are taking toward its government. They are mad and they are not going to take it anymore!
