“Genuine popular support in the United States is required to carry out any Government policy, foreign or domestic. The American people make up their own minds and no governmental action can change it,” Franklin D. Roosevelt wrote to Joseph Stalin on March 29, 1945.
Well, John Kerry just did change it.
During the House Foreign Relations Committee hearing, Rep. Reid Ribble asked John Kerry why the Iran nuclear deal is not considered a treaty. Kerry’s response was shocking but not unexpected.
John Kerry said he couldn’t pass a treaty and he found that far too frustrating. The treaty he wanted passed allowed the U.N. power grab that would dictate our U.S. handicapped laws.
“Well, congressman,” Kerry pontificated, “I spent quite a few years trying to get a lot of treaties through the United States Senate, and frankly it’s become physically impossible. That’s why. Because you can’t pass a treaty anymore. And it’s become impossible to, you know, schedule. It’s become impossible to pass.”
“I sat there leading the charge on the Disabilities Treaty which fell to, basically, ideology and politics.” That treaty was blocked in the Senate last year.
The disability treaty, the U.N. “Convention on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities,” is very radical and made extraordinary demands of the U.S. that other nations don’t follow themselves. Kerry wanted to turn power over our handling of the disabled to the U.N.
It would grant oversight of U.S. policies on disabled Americans to an unelected global “committee” of self-styled “experts.”
One of the main problems with the scheme for parental-rights advocates is that the CRPD could allow government officials to usurp decision-making authority from parents of disabled children.
The treaty didn’t even define what a disability was, calling it “evolving” which left it open to a lot of abuse from the many brutal regimes involved in the U.N.
The U.N. would have had their hands in our employment of the disabled, how many parking spaces they’d have, and it could limit parental rights over their own child.
Kerry can’t give away enough of our sovereignty fast enough to a U.N. comprised of statists which is continually gaining power.
It’s too difficult, impossible in fact, to get one of his unpopular treaties through so therefore the Iran nuclear deal isn’t a treaty and our constitutional treaty powers are dead.
“Frankly it’s become physically impossible,” Kerry said, unaware that his treaties have been radical or deficient. “A treaty with Mexico helping us keep illegal aliens from crossing our border wouldn’t be physically impossible to schedule and pass; tens of thousands of demonstrators would probably gather at the Capitol steps from all across the country to demand it be ratified yesterday.
“The Disabilities Treaty fell to ideology and politics,” the secretary of state complained,obviously wary of the Iran deal falling to the same. But his problem is with the Framers of our Constitution.
If his ideology isn’t accepted, the Constitution must go.
The Constitution gives the Senate the power of “Advice and Consent” on treaties, which the President is responsible for negotiating. The states – the people – thereby have an indirect influence on treaties. The president and the Senate lead in making foreign policy.
The President has powers “BY AND WITH THE ADVICE AND CONSENT OF THE SENATE, TO MAKE TREATIES, PROVIDED TWO THIRDS OF THE SENATORS PRESENT CONCUR.”
Treaties control war, peace, commerce and climate. It is critical that the Congress have a role.
