Krauthammer schools the libs on the ineffectiveness of U.N. treaties and the hypocrisy of the U.N., asking why vote for a treaty on disabilities that means nothing in Togo. In return the John Burch Society is thrown in his face by Colby King of the Washington Post and he’s called a nativist by Nina Totenburg of NPR.

          I’m not quite there with the black helecopters (YET!) but there’s been enough going on that makes me think more about it.

          • white531

            The black helicopters are real. They do exist.

            I used to live in Wickenburg, small town north of Phoenix. While working outside in my yard one day, I became aware of a high pitched turbine engine sound, accompanied by rotor noise, approaching from the south. About thirty seconds later, a black helicopter came over my house at treetop level, doing about two hundred miles per hour. He was so close I could see the pilot. As he passed over, he turned his head slightly and looked down at me. The helicopter itself was totally black. It was completely devoid of markings. No tail number, no other markings of any kind. None.

            I don’t know why he was flying so low, or where he was headed, but he was headed there in a hurry.

            • tinlizzieowner

              I know where Wikenburg is, I was stationed at Luke AB in the late 60’s. There are ‘things’ out there in the desert that we don’t have the ‘need to know’ anything about, if you get my drift. ;-) ;-)

            You know, when liberal types use something like “black helicopters” as a buzz word to make fun of people, it just makes me want to understand what the legitimacy of the buzzword is. I listen to a fair amount of Alex Jones stuff, but don’t even hear him talking about it.

            I think that the whole black helicopter thing is just symbolic of black ops, and when applied in the US it is considered a bad thing. I have seen reports of the feds using black ops style tactics in training to take out local police stations. One was done in a Texas city where the police department moved out of a building, and the feds came in and did a night raid on the building for training. Locals reported black helicopters, gun fire, and explosions in the building. I think that this was back in the 90s, but don’t quote me.

            After the Wako incident, the people who feared big government went full bore on the concept of black ops being used on local governments and US citizen groups. This spurred Clinton to send an army of federal agents out to infiltrate the militias, and sent many of them underground.

            Anyway. Happy Tuesday.

    And they all go ahhhh…

    So, if the UN won’t have any effect on our laws, why exactly did the UN send observers into our election polling stations? The UN treaties are not meant to affect other countries, they are meant only to affect the US and it’s allies.

    This whole conversation is typical Alinski. Bring up the Chamber of Commerce and when that doesn’t stick, throw in some ridicule (Nativism and Bircher). The only potent weapon missing was racism, but then they ran out of time so I give them a pass.

    Edit: BTW, this is a typical balanced debate – 3-4 liberals against 1 Conservative. I’m sure Dr. K had to tie one half of his brain behind his back, as Rush always suggests, just to make it even.

      BTW, this is a typical balanced debate – 3-4 liberals against 1 Conservative.

      Yes very typical. We have the exact… and I do mean exact same dog and pony act up here in Canada.

      Here’s how it goes. 1 Conservative; the moderator/inquisitor (leftist); then a Liberal MP(leftist); then a New DEMOCRAT MP (leftist); then an “independent” “non-partisan” (leftist) expert of some sort via satellite to add heft; then if available, the one sole Green MP (leftist enviro-extremist) in parliament.

      VOILA! Fair and balanced broadcast journalism. The fair and commonsense gang of good guys against that mean evil conservative. It’s quite magical really!

  • marketcomp

    It is amazing how we have given up the intelectual battle to useful idiots. If Mike Lee and Rick Santorum was bad and that it contained language about disability and reproductive rights and the the home schooler, who is also a lawyer, made a comment about children wearing glasses and how that can be considered a disability under this treaty then why would anyone listen to these psuedo intellectuals. Moreover, why are we talking about this? If we are the leading country in this area then why implement the UN treaty.

  • http://twitter.com/InaudibleNoise InaudibleNoise

    These people haven’t the slightest clue how dangerous the UN really is and frankly, they don’t care. They don’t care about our national sovereignty, nor parental rights, which absolutely are threatened by the UN CRPD. It’s time to get the UN out of the US and the US out of the UN.

      They see themselves as part of the same global intellectual elitism as the UN vermin. They talk like socialists while living like capitalists. They cannot see their utter moral and intellectual hypocrisy.

      They see us as mentally and socially inferior rubes, who need them to do what is best for us because we lack the wisdom and insight they have been blessed with.

      They have been at it so long that the no longer recognize that their morally bankrupt intellectual rationalization is nothing more that a mental crutch to ease their own greed and guilt.

      Their minds simply cannot accept the brilliant simplicity of our Founders – that man can rule himself. If they did, their entire existence, their pseudo intellectual reality, would collapse them into a quivering puddle of mental mush.

  • sDee

    John Birch society does some good stuff, McCarthy paid a big price for rooting out the marxist and subversives. The Tea Party is a Constitutional patriotic movement.

    So, for as long as I have been even remotely aware of politics, the same pattern is applied over and over again. Anyone who effectively stands for First Principles, liberty and sovereignty, and/or exposes the leftist, globalist agenda, is instantaneously dismissed, ridiculed, labeled, mocked and ostracized.

    The reaction comes in unison from all sides, Democrats, Republicans, press , entertainers, domestic and foreign. It is incredibly predictable and well coordinated.

    No wonder there are primarily Progressive Republicans in office – the rest were all chewed up and spit out.

    We saw it with Palin most recently but it goes back to Goldwater and Reagan. Even when clueless Juan Williams accidentally expressed a tidbit of honest truth, he was immediately ostracized, eaten by his own to serve as an example.

    Allen West never backed down and survived the culling by the press, the Democrats and his own Party. So they all had no choice but to team up to redistrict him. When that failed they stuffed the ballot.

    Is there a way to beat them at this or is it the human condition to repeat the cycle of destruction inevitable with marxism, socialism, and other forms of intellectualized tyranny?

    • Sober_Thinking

      You are spot on here sDee!!!

      Don’t forget Bachman and how she was railroaded when sh approached the truth. What a meat-grinder Washington has become when ever someone starts to attack insanity… they do indeed get chewed up and spit out. Utterly sickening.

      I don’t know how it was when Reagan was in office… but you have crooked Clinton for 8 years, idiot Bush for 8 years (and sadly, he was an idiot), and now the reprobate Obama in office and the culture in Washington has become predatory and twisted.

      My hope is that if we can keep getting the Reid’s, Pelosi’s, Dick Durbin’s, Howard Dean’s, John Kerry’s, Steny Hoyer’s, John Boehner’s, Eric Cantor’s, Mitch McConnell’s, John McCain’s, Lindsey Graham’s, etc. all out of there and replace them with Trey Gowdy’s, Ted Cruz’s, Jason Chaffetz’s, etc. – serious, staunch conservatives and an Allen West in the WH, then and only then, may we turn this twisted mess around and have a climate of honor, integrity, selflessness and patriotism again. Maybe.

      Until then, it’s only going to get worse.

    • stage9

      Even with what McCarthy did, which was stupid — accusing citizens of communist ties without proper evidence — the underlying premise was correct, that there is a moral and constitutional standard for American democracy and that standard excludes liberalism, socialism, communism and fascism. These atheistic “isms” are antithetical to the Western way of life. Communism is completely incompatible with Constitutional Democracy.

      Liberalism as a worldview is just the new communism and it should be driven from our shores and banished from America into extinction.

      Who gives a CRAP what liberals think or feel about it. Liberalism as a worldview should be outlawed.

      • http://www.facebook.com/paul.christian.942 librtifirst

        I try to make the distinction between liberalism and globalism, and determine which one is really at play. Globalists like liberals because they will go along with any agenda which works toward shutting down the industrialized world. (free market capitalism and industrial production in the previously industrialized world) I don’t think that the Bushs, Clintons, and Obama push the same agenda because they are all philosophical liberals, but it is rather that they are all globalists following a plan of global domination which is cultivated by global elites.

        There are a lot of useful idiots who actually think that being liberal is trendy and nice, and they are the ones who will suffer the most under the authoritarianism of the global elites. At least conservatives see through the liberal manifestations of the globalist agenda, and can tell where it is all going. They will be better prepared for the end game.

    Don’t get me started on the inefficiency, the corruption, the greed, the duplicity, the anti-semitism, the pro-Islamic, dictator-loving and anti-democratic hatred that can be found with most of the bloated bureaucrats at the United Nations. The UN was a quaint Wilsonian idea that should have gone the way of the League of Nations, but never did. And it has always, always, cuased more problems than it has ever solved. Time to end it before it does even more harm, as was so evident with the fiasco in Rwanda.

    It is about greed and wealth transfer from Western civilization, primarily the United States, to tyrants, dictators, and the ruling elites in the 3rd World.

    Disability rights is the altruistic candy coating they glaze over a pile of excrement in order to get enough gullible people in the West to swallow it.

    They want nothing less than the diminution of American/Western power and prosperity. It has been their mission for decades, but unlike in the past when the United States Senate and the President would dismiss this absurdity, they now have a fellow traveler in the White House. A man who has been indoctrinated, inculcated, and cultivated to hate America and Western civilization since his birth. A man who surrounds himself and populates his administration with like minded America hating ideologues. The UN radicals now have allies in the highest offices of all Western nations, not just America.

    The USA should remove itself from membership in the corrupt criminal folly that’s called the UN. As an organization (like our own government) all it wants more money, power, and control and does more harm than good. There are documented stories of UN soldiers sent to regions in Africa to “keep the peace” found to be raping women in those already war ravaged places. This institution has got to go.

    If I had my way, I’d withdraw our membership, stiff them for whatever money the US owes them, and give them 5 years to find a new home in another country or have its property in NYC taken by force, and sold to the highest bidder.

    Libs want a one world government. That’s why they are up in arms against what Krauthammer stated. Honestly, UN stands for Useless Nations. Its members do nothing more than sit on their broad, well fed bottoms and pontificate meaningless BS to the known world. That august body of bottom feeders is nothing but a cabal of overpaid empty suits and talking heads. If that useless group were worth its weight in dirt, it would have already intervened with force in Syria, have deposed the Iranian leadership, and told the muslim brotherhood in Egypt that it couldn’t play in the new government since it is a terrorist organization.

  • armyvet10

    My stepfather clung to a saying that I have always understood and kept in mind, “If a bullfrog had wings, it wouldn’t bump his a$$ every time he jumped.”
    Dr. Krauthammer is spot on as well as many posters here on this thread are. We give the U.N. every ounce of credibility.
    IF this organization were in say Iran, it would have been destroyed years ago and no one would have believed one word or action they had spoken or taken.
    IF the UN really believed in human rights and decency, they would never have admitted countries bent on ruling their people with an iron fist (mostly women) like Iran. Remember, Iran was given the task to head up the UN counsel on women’s rights.
    IF the UN was really concerned with democracy and freedom they would spend less time attacking the U.S. about guns, freedom of speech, religious tolerance, or monitoring our elections when they should be doing all of these things in countries like Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, China, Egypt, Venezuela, and too many other Dictator controlled countries to list.
    The UN resides in our country, is funded by our wealth, and uses our tolerance to attack the very ideas they say they want. Being in the education system, I often joke with my students about running for president. My students then ask me what my platform would be. One of my strongest stances in my answer is to disband the UN and remove all members from our soil and send them back to the countries they came from. Demolish the building and make it a parking lot. In this manner the UN would be more useful.
