Defeating the CRPD (United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities) is the best news Americans can expect to get in the foreseeable future. Incidentally, quick cruises of the Net yesterday evening and this morning looking for results found scant mention of the CRPDs defeat. One of the FOX Network shows I bumped into did report the defeat in one sentence. I cannot say how much coverage a United Nations defeat got on all of the networks. I suspect that it was little to none. The only thing losers learn from victors is Dont lose. In war and politics victors already know how to win; so they concentrate on learning a lot about the losers. Now, lets apply that philosophy to yesterdays losers. First, no other United Nations treaty could have exposed the true loyalties of US senators in so definitive a way as did the CRPD. Not one word in that treaty would have helped disabled Americans in spite of Kerrys canard. Note that Kerry had to go foreign to make his case: Assuming advocating for Rights is doublespeak for protection from abuse somebody should have asked Kerry how many disabled US veterans and citizens are being abused in foreign countries. The followup question is obvious: Why cant American embassies protect the Rights of ALL Americans in foreign countries? Heres a scenario making my case for NOT ratifying: Lets say a foreign government is arresting and executing Americans under the laws of that country. Hussein goes to the United Nations seeking permission to send in the marines to rescue Americans waiting to be executed. What do you think the UN will say? My guess is the UN will offer to send in inspectors. Before accusing me of violating another country's sovereignty let me say that Americans should not be in foreign countries that hate them. American citizens staying out of harms way lets this country concentrate on minding its own business. Next Maybe this is why McCain lost to Hussein in 2008: Bob Dole, former senator and big time loser in presidential races, came out of retirement to join John McCain in support of the treaty. Surely, those two on UN treaties is a classic example of a loser learning from a loser. Interestingly, Dole, a disabled veteran who was severely wounded in WWII, could not beat a dirt bag like Clinton. War hero McCain could not beat a Communist with a life story that would make Charles Manson blush. Something happened in those elections that public trough intellectuals and paid pundits either missed or deliberately ignored. Finally, here is the lesson learned. Everybody who voted for the CRPD thought they could hide their treason behind the disabled. No other United Nations treaty sitting on the shelf like a rattlesnake waiting to strike offers a humanitarian cover story as compassionate as does the CRPD. By voting for the CRPD they showed that global government administered by the United Nations is their first loyalty. Thats no great revelation with Democrats, but the CRPD vote did expose these eight: Senate rejects United Nations treaty for disabled rights in a 61-38 vote By Ramsey Cox and Julian Pecquet - 12/04/12 12:29 PM ET Senate rejects United Nations treaty for disabled rights in a 61-38 vote - The Hill's Global Affairs Brown, Lugar, and Snowe are leaving. John McCain does not count because everybody knows he is the poster boy for RINO. Now that Snowe is history, Susan Collins takes over as poster girl for distaff RINO. Sadly, voting for a UN treaty trivializes all of the conservative positions held by Ayotte, Barrasso, and Murkowski. Senators, more than members of the House, must come with a core belief that puts Americas sovereignty above everything else. Voting for a UN treaty under any pretext says the opposite.
