By Warner Todd Huston Senator Barbara Boxer (D, CA) wants to speed the process of handing power over U.S. sovereignty to the United Nations as soon as possible by urging the State Department to come out in support of the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). The UNCRC imposes on all treaty signatories power over laws concerning children and, by extension, families. The largest portion of laws concerning children and families in the U.S. are state statutes so this treaty would, in actual fact, eliminate all family laws in the various states and hand the power over this area of law to the U.N. as per the Supremacy Clause to the U.S. Constitution (Article V1) that states that treaties preempt state laws.
Boxer is eager to destroy the entire lot of family laws throughout the country supposedly to protect "the most vulnerable people of society." But even the new left-wing U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., Susan Rice, is aware of how difficult this process could be. Calling it a "complicated treaty" and worried over the "challenges of domestic implementation,"
Rice would not commit to any time table to proceeding with consideration of the UNCRC. Senator Boxer, however, demanded a 60-day timeframe for the State Department to complete its review so that ratification can move forward.
Naturally, Boxer is in favor of destroying U.S. sovereignty by implementing this unAmerican treaty.
