Treaty Overrides Our Constitution

Your parental authority has been revoked. You have not committed any crime, it is just that politicians decided your child's future was too important to be left in your hands. Surely you understand?

Oh, you don't?

In that case, you may want to let your senators know you object to ratification of the treaty known as United Nations 'Convention on the Rights of the Child.'

The CRC treaty is so carefully worded that most people will not see past the altruistic 'rights of the child' moniker, but ratification will allow eighteen specially chosen individuals to determine the future of America's children. It will take precedence over traditional American law, which states the government may not substitute its judgment for that of the parent until there is proof of harm. As a legal instrument with binding legal consequences, the treaty will give Congress jurisdiction over the regulation of family life.

Oddly, unborn children are excluded from this treaty as full abortion rights are granted, even to minors.

Ten things Americans need to know about the structure of the Convention on the Rights of the Child:

1. It is a treaty which creates binding rules of law.

2. Its effect would be binding on American families, courts and policymakers.

3. Children of other nations would not be impacted or helped in any direct way by our ratification.

4. The CRC would automatically override almost all American laws on children and families because of the U.S. Constitution’s Supremacy Clause in Article VI.

5. The CRC has some elements that are self-executing, while others would require implementing legislation. Federal courts would have the power to determine which provisions were self-executing.

6. The courts would have the power to directly enforce the provisions that are self-executing.

7. Congress would have the power to directly legislate on all subjects necessary to comply with the treaty. This would constitute the most massive shift of power from the states to the federal government in American history.

8. A committee of 18 experts from other nations, sitting in Geneva, has the authority to issue official interpretations of the treaty which are entitled to binding weight in American courts and legislatures. This effectively transfers ultimate authority for all policies in this area to this foreign committee

9. Under international law, the treaty overrides even our Constitution.

10. Reservations, declarations, or understandings intended to modify our duty to comply with this treaty will be void if they are determined to be inconsistent with the object and purpose of the treaty.
Democrat, Republican, Independent, American Socialist, Communist, Libertarian--your political views are of no consequence.  If you are an American citizen, you will be bound to uphold this treaty if it becomes law.   For those of you thinking 'I'm not American, so this does not concern me,' I respectfully request your consideration of 'First They Came..':

When they came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.
When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.
When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.
When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
I wasn't a Jew.
When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.
