International Law versus Army Recruiters

Are we going to let the United Nations supercede our sovereignty?  Overrule our laws?  Dictate to us what we will and won't do?
 
Regardless what side of this particular argument you're on, take a look at the bigger picture. Do you not see the danger of getting entangled in UN-based and other international treaties?
 
America can get along with its global neighbors just fine, but we don't have to give up the farm in the process.

International Law versus Army Recruiters

A U.S. District Court in Oakland last week declined to hear oral arguments in a case pitting international law against U.S. military policy. Judge Saundra Armstrong announced Tuesday that she would decide the case based on briefs and other documents presented to the court for that purpose. "No matter the outcome," Arcata counsel Brad Yamauchi says, "we're going to appeal to the 9th Circuit and possibly the Supreme Court."

At the heart of the case are local ordinances from Eureka and Arcata, two northern California cities, which would prohibit U.S. armed services recruiters from initiating contact with youths under 18, anywhere within city limits. The U.S. Department of Justice first filed suit against the towns, claiming that these Youth Protection Acts fail under Article VI of the Constitution, which makes federal law supreme over contradictory state or local legislation.

In response, the cities filed countersuits claiming that current military policy violates the Convention on the Rights of the Child's Optional Protocol on Children in Armed Conflict, which the U.S. ratified in 2002. (This is a separate but related treaty to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC); the U.S. has not ratified the main CRC.) "When the government enters into an international treaty or protocol, that becomes the law of the United States," says Yamauchi, also citing Article VI.  The cities claim that the U.S. military is in violation of the Protocol's prohibition on the recruiting of children for military service. Current federal law allows representatives of the armed services to educate high school and college students on military career options, alongside other educational and vocational recruiters at job fairs and the like. To actually enlist, however, one must be 18, or close to 18 with parental consent. This countersuit constitutes the first time since the 2002 ratification of the protocol that the federal government's compliance with the treaty has been legally questioned.

Judge Armstrong's decision to forgo oral arguments is widely considered favorable to the federal government's case. "[I]f anything, it is a negative sign for us because we obviously have the steeper hill to climb," admits Eureka City Attorney Sheryl Schaffner. However, Armstrong's decision, which could come at any time, is not likely to be the end, nor is it safe to guess how the 9th Circuit might rule if the case is appealed.

That this case exists at all is evidence of the threat that international law presents to our American way of life. Should the full CRC be ratified, not only federal law, but even state, local and individual family decisions will come under the authority of the United Nations when children are involved. The Parental Rights Amendment is the only guaranteed method to permanently stop international law from interfering with family and state laws.

AlfonZo Rachel Presents: Letterman, Palin and a Topless Drew Barrymore

AlfonZo Rachel calls it like it is!

 

Letterman's a has-been who is desperately seeking ratings points. Frankly, I didn't know he was still alive.

 

I only wish more than 12 people could see that video, but it certainly won't get any State-controlled press.

 

So it's our job to spread the word through the citizenry from the grassroots up.

Ten Second Response: Global Warming: Why Can't the Mainstream Press Get Even Basic Facts Right?

The Ten Second Response
 
 
 
 
==================
 

Stop EPA Overreach!

Are these people crazy? 
 
 
FACT: Only about 0.03 percent of the Earth's atmosphere consists of carbon dioxide (nitrogen, oxygen, and argon constitute about 78 percent, 20 percent, and 0.93 percent of the atmosphere, respectively). (http://www.nationalcenter.org/TSR032204.html)
 
 
 They want to control AIR. Actually they want to regulate 0.03 of it.  But it will kill our economy and send utility and other consumer prices through the roof.
 
They must be stopped!!  Take action! Write letters, make calls, pass it on.
 
 
 

Stop EPA Overreach
Carbon Dioxide is NOT a Pollutant
 
AFP is engaged in a pitched battle against environmental extremists and we need your help to stop them.  The Left has mobilized their grassroots to tell the EPA to choke off economic activity in this country.
 
Last year we battled an EPA proposal to regulate greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act, a proposal that would allow bureaucrats to control everything that emits carbon dioxide in our country, including: cars, trains, planes and even your lawnmower.
 
Since the Obama Administration has taken hold, things have only gotten worse.  The EPA is feeling emboldened and have submitted a proposal that would find carbon dioxide "endangers the public health and welfare." 
 
That's right; the essential gas that has always been a critical component of the planet's natural life cycle will now be officially labeled by the U.S. Government as a pollutant.
 
 
Once this "endangerment finding" has been reached, the EPA will be empowered to advance carbon dioxide regulations to their heart's content.  But even if they wanted to take the severe economic impact of this proposal into account, they can't.  Once the endangerment finding is final, they would be compelled to work aggressively to eliminate it across the economy.
 
One lawsuit by a fringe environmental group could bring our economy to a standstill.
 
But, before the EPA can pass this ridiculous rule, they are required by law to listen to the people. 
 
Click here to take action and tell EPA that you oppose this new regulation.

BK Franchise Signs in Memphis: Global Warming is a Hoax

It's great to finally see someone with the balls to stand up and say 'the emperor has no clothes'! This continuing mantra of 'man made global warming' is starting to get silly. Of course it makes sense to 'give a hoot, don't pollute' (the "green message" from an earlier era). We should all conserve where we can and use our resources wisely. But that has nothing to do with 'fighting global warming', which is utter nonsense. Too many people have skewed the distiction to the point that they think you want a dirty planet just because you don't support the global warming religion.




Tennessee Burger King Defends Its "Global Warming Is Baloney" Sign


I looked up the Franchise web site and found this contact address:

Contact MIC: http://www.mic-memphis.com/contact_us/

My message to them: "Finally someone has stood up and said 'the emperor has no clothes'! God Bless you for speaking out. Stand tough! Man made Global Warming is a hoax and every thinking person knows it. It's a political power and money grab. I hope more companies will follow your lead to expose this hoax."


Google search...


As for Global warming...

More and more scientists and thinking people all over the world are realizing that man-made global warming is a hoax that threatens our future and the future of our children. More than 700 international scientists dissent over man-made global warming claims. They are now more than 13 times the number of UN scientists (52) who authored the media-hyped IPCC 2007 Summary for Policymakers. http://www.climatechangefraud.com/content/view/3562/218/

Additionally, more than 30,000 American scientists have signed onto a petition that states, 'There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere and disruption of the Earth's climate.' http://www.petitionproject.org

Snow fell in North Dakota in June for the first time in nearly 60 years.

OMG. It's the sun!
