Phyllis Schlafly, a long-time activist and freedom fighter, just turned 88 in August, and is just as vigorous and vociferous in her views as ever. One of her concerns is that the lame duck session of the Senate could vote to approve one or more of those vicious UN treaties that haven’t been getting much attention in the mainstream media. Schlafly knows the score, and who’s behind the push:
The globalists have been plotting to use the volatility of this lame-duck session to achieve some of their internationalist goals that they couldn’t get passed during the last four years. In particular, they would like to lock us into treaties that slice out various parts of our national sovereignty, a concept that they have been trying to promote as obsolete.
One of the major pieces of a national sovereignty which the “globalists” consider as obsolete – actually more of an an impediment – is the Second Amendment:
The globalists could make a surprise treaty push for ratification of the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (UNATT). This treaty is coming under the radar since gun control advocates know it could never pass the U.S. Senate after debate in broad daylight.
The gun control advocates assume that private ownership of guns is inherently dangerous. They hope they can achieve their goal of prohibiting private ownership by the covert strategy of a treaty with vague language, and, so far, they have been successful in avoiding media attention.
But this isn’t the only treaty that could be presented to a lame duck Senate:
Another plan to ratify an anti-sovereignty treaty and subject us to unwelcome global regulations is the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD)…
The feminists are using this treaty as an opportunity to promote their abortion agenda. Article 25 requires signatory states to “provide persons with disabilities … free or affordable health care … including in the area of sexual and reproductive health and population-based health programmes.”
And then there’s the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST):
The globalists desperately want us to ratify the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST), which was a bad idea when Ronald Reagan rejected it in 1981, and which has soured rather than ripened in its years of languishing in the Senate. This treaty cedes sovereign control over practically all the riches at the bottom of the world’s oceans to an International Seabed Authority.
The worst thing that could happen, with a Romney victory (this is being written on Election Day), is that “conservatives” go back to sleep, thinking that everything is OK now, and nothing more is needed until the next election. The lame duck session could provide a nasty wake-up call for those inclined to go back to sleep.
