By their fruits we shall know them, and so we know them. This is who and what the Democrats are. They are at war with the American people. It was Obama and Hillary, his Secretary of State, who reported the American people to the most egregious abusers of basic human rights, the UN 'Human Rights" Council, which includes Cuba, Saudi Arabia, China, Russia, Libya, Angola, Mauritania, Qatar, and Malaysia. Child slavery, anyone?
This is the first time ever that the US is facing scrutiny from the evil forces of the UN Human Rights Council. Thank you, Obama. More proof that he is either an America-hater or a madman.
Seven countries accused of human rights violations, including Libya, Angola and Malaysia, won seats on the UN Human Rights Council......
All 14 countries easily topped the 97 votes required from the 192-member world body. Libya, which currently holds the presidency of the General Assembly, received the lowest number of votes — 155 — while Angola got 170 and Malaysia 179.
In addition to these three countries, human rights groups criticized the poor rights records of Thailand, Uganda, Mauritania and Qatar which also won seats.
The seven other countries that won seats were Maldives, Ecuador, Guatemala, Spain, Switzerland, Moldova and Poland.
America is under attack from within at the highest levels of power. Barack Hussein Obama’s policies are bringing America to her knees. With a consistency that can only come from deeply held conviction, Barack Hussein Obama is damaging the office of the presidency and compromising American sovereignty.
As soon as he became president, he took decisive steps to submit American sovereignty to the will of international bodies. First Obama attacked America by suing Arizona for passing a law that merely reflected federal immigration law. Now the Obama administration has included the Arizona state immigration law in a report of human rights abuses to the UN, that collective negation of humanity and home to the worst human rights abusers in the world.
Obama is an internationalist, and this has more ominous implications for American sovereignty.
“What transnationalism, at bottom, is all about,s depriving American citizens of their powers of representative government by selectively imposing on them the favored policies of Europe's leftist elites.” In contrast, “proponents of a nationalist jurisprudence view ‘foreign legal precedents’ as ‘an impermissible imposition on the exercise of American sovereignty.’” legal expert M. Edward Whelan, president of the Ethics and Public Policy Center, the former general counsel to the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary, former principal deputy assistant attorney general for the Office of Legal Counsel in the U.S. Department of Justice
Obama's latest attack on America may shock Americans, but readers of The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration's War on America will nod their heads in recognition. It's all in my book, the relinquishing of American sovereignty and Obama's internationalism.
United States will come under the spotlight at the UN's top human rights assembly's for the first time over the coming week along with other countries that face scrutiny by the Human Rights Council.
Some 300 US civil liberties and community groups in the US Human Rights Network on Monday called on the Obama administration to bring "substandard human rights practices" in the United States into line with international standards.
The United States only agreed to join the Council in May 2009, after the Bush administration had shunned the body which replaced its similar though discredited predecessor, the UN human rights commission, in 2006.
The Network produced a 400-page report criticising "glaring inadequacies in the United States? human rights record," including the "discriminatory impact" of foreclosures, "widespread" racial profiling and "draconian" immigration policies.
"Advocates across America have not only documented substandard human rights practices which have persisted in the US for years, but also those that reflect the precipitous erosion of human rights protections in the US since 9/11," said Sarah Paoletti of the Network.
The United States has also faced widespread criticism by UN rights monitors in recent years over its handling of terror suspects and suspected torture, while concern over the conduct of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan has been revived in recent months with "Wikileak" reports on leaked confidential documents.
The other UN member states scheduled for review in this Council session will be Andorra, Bulgaria, Croatia, Honduras, Jamaica, Liberia, Libya, Lebanon Malawi, Maldives, the Marshall Islands, Mauritania, Micronesia, Mongolia, and Panama.
Each public, four-year, review is based on a report by the country, a compilation of non governmental organisation assessments and a one day debate with comments by its peers. No action is taken.
