Should, hereafter, those incited by the lust of power and prompted by the supineness or venality of their constituents, overleap the known barriers of this Constitution and violate the unalienable rights of humanity: it will only serve to show, that no compact among men (however provident in its construction and sacred in its ratification) can be pronounced everlasting and inviolable, and if I may so express myself, that no Wall of words, that no mound of parchment can be so formed as to stand against the sweeping torrent of boundless ambition on the side, aided by the sapping current of corrupted morals on the other. ~ George Washington
The following U.N. Rights of the Child Treaty was drafted in 1990 but it continually returns and Obama is being urged to sign it. As a globalist who loves the U.N., he might.
If you want an idea of how big our globalist government can get, take a look at what the U.N. sees as the governments’ right to raise your child. Have you heard about The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child?
It is an international human rights treaty which grants all children and young people a comprehensive set of rights, including the right to express their views and have them taken into account in all matters affecting them (article 12); the right to play, rest and leisure (article 31) and the right to protection from all forms of violence (article 19). The Convention is separated into 54 articles or sections covering different aspects of childhood and rights and freedoms.
We haven’t signed it yet nor has Somalia.
There are 54 of these and you will notice from the few I cite that the U.N. wants to raise your child, leaving you as a caretaker subject to lawsuits over pretty much anything.
Articles 1 -43 outline the rights which is everything imaginable with the governments usurping the rights of parents in every conceivable way. Articles 43-54 tells governments how to do it and they are Marxist.
I am only posting a few from the CRAE”S summary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child and advise people to look at them all and make their own decisions.
Article 3 – Adults should always try to do what is best for children and young people. Governments must do everything to make sure children and young people are safe and well looked after.
Article 4 – Governments must do all they can to make sure children’s and young people’s human rights are upheld.
Article 6 – Governments must do all they can to make sure every child and young person has the best possible life.
Article 9 – This is good because it gives courts authority over your child as well by stating that if a court is thinking about who a child or a young person should live with, everyone affected by the decision should get the chance to be heard – including the child. Our courts already handle the cases that require this – what do we need this for?
Article 12 is a beaut – “Parties shall assure to the child who is capable of forming his or her own views the right to express those views freely in all matters affecting the child, the views of the child being given due weight in accordance with the age and maturity of the child … the child shall in particular be provided the opportunity to be heard in any judicial and administrative proceedings affecting the child…
You get the idea. Why do we need this corrupt Marxist U.N. to step in?

Articles 43 – 54 is the blueprint –
There will be appointed committees of high moral standing who will pass judgement down from their ivory towers like Big Brother. Everything goes through the U.N. Secretary General. This will not be cheap. Frequent references to the State Party and other communist terminology run throughout the Articles. There will be mindless bureaucratic reports no one will properly review and which will pass down decisions that have little relevance to the individual but rather an ideal that we may not share.
It’s an open invitation to more wasted dollars being funneled through an unnecessary government monster. Should the U.S. sign something like this, we would not have veto power and would have limited control. It’s an absurd idea to think that an enormous global and corrupt body with members from nations like Cuba and Iran will have power over the U.S. parents. It is absurd to allow anything like this to even be considered.
This began in 1989. Where do we stand now?
In 1995 Clinton signed it but it was not passed to the Senate. Bush refused to sign it because of political and legal concerns. CRS
Two optional protocols were adopted on 25 May 2000. The First Optional Protocol restricts the involvement of children in military conflicts, and the Second Optional Protocol prohibits the sale of children, child prostitution and child pornography. Both protocols have been ratified by more than 140 states. They were signed in 2000 by Clinton. [Wiki]
In 2009, Boehner’s office reported that: “Recently the Administration has indicated that it would like the Senate to ratify the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child. In light of increasing government expansion into the private sector and individuals’ lives – the desire to cede parents’ rights to raise and nurture their children to an international panel in Geneva should not come as surprise.

Resolutions to oppose this and keep the rights of the child with the parent have been put forth periodically by Republican members of Congress as the leftists fight for the U.S. to sign the treaty. There are thousands of organizations now asking for Obama to sign the treaty. They claim that Evangelicals are supportive of the treaty because of protections it allegedly affords at great loss of liberty unfortunately. It will supersede our Constitution. Read more: CBS News
Susan Rice has already signed a Disabled Child Treaty. Read here: Boogal. The U.S. has some of the best laws for the disabled and we are improving all the time. This treaty again puts the U.N. in the leadership role, infringing on our Constitution. Read more: UN Disabilities Treaty
We need to keep our eye on it!
