Senate set to approve controversial UN gun treaty

As the United Nations prepares its final push to ratify a controversial gun treaty, the U.S. Senate is set to approve the measure which critics say will not only give away U.S. sovereignty but directly attack the individual gun rights of American citizens, according to a report published Thursday at Stand Up America.
Democrats still hold the majority in the Senate.
Known as "the U.N. small arms treaty," the measure would regulate private gun ownership, according to firearms rights watchdog groups.
Retired Lt. Gen. William Boykin, who has been at the forefront of citizen opposition to the treaty, stated,
There has been a decree by the administration by the president and the secretary of state saying that our president will sign the United Nations small arms treaty, which is about how we will buy sell and control individual private weapons,” Boykin warned. “That means the United Nations, an international body will decide how you and I as Americans can buy and sell our weapons, how we control those weapons, who is authorized to have those weapons and where they are. This is a dangerous trend.

The treaty has been in the works for several years, and both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have expressed full support for the measure, which critics say is an underhanded attempt to implement massive gun control without having to go through the normal legislative process in Congress.
Obama stated during the 2008 presidential campaign that he would not seek to push gun control through Congress due to the fact that he does not have the votes. And on that point he is correct. Gun control has fallen on hard times in America over the past two decades. Increasingly states are enacting laws that give citizens greater leeway in self defense, many approving bills that allow citizens to carry guns either openly or concealed without having a permit from the state.
In addition, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in two monumental cases in 2008 and 2010 that most of the anti-gun laws in the District of Columbia and in Chicago were unconstitutional. The ruling also clarified the definition of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, stating that the right to bear arms is an individual rather than a "collective" right.
Thus, known gun opponents such as Obama and Hillary Clinton immediately went to work to devise plans, under the radar, to attempt to change the tide of public opinion about firearms and implement gun control without the approval of Congress, according to government whistleblowers and watchdogs.
One plan was to send U.S. firearms to Mexican drug cartels as a means of padding statistics that would "prove" the administration's contention that "90 percent of the firearms used by the cartels come from the United States."
The other plan was to bypass Congress and use the U.N. to trump U.S. law by signing a treaty that would grant international supervision over the sale and possession of guns in America.
But the plans have been met by heavy opposition. Congress has exposed the scheme inherent in the Fast and Furious operation, leading to contempt charges against Attorney General Eric Holder. Hillary Clinton has been implicated in the scandal as one of the original masterminds behind the scheme. And over 130 members of Congress have openly expressed their opposition to the U.N. small arms treaty.
The Senate is also considering another U.N. based treaty called "The Law of the Sea," which is intended to regulate international waterways but would hand over U.S. sovereignty to international entities, according to critics.
President Reagan refused to approve the treaty in 1982 due to sovereignty issues. But Obama and Hillary Clinton have pushed for its ratification.
Both bills have created a firestorm of controversy due to their encroachment on the Bill of Rights and the final authority of Congress to regulate international commerce.
According to the U.S. Constitution, only Congress has the authority to regulate international commerce pertaining to the United States, and thus, critics say that the treaties are blatantly unconstitutional.
Proponents of the bills often engage in what opponents say is "Orwellian newspeak" in their frantic attempts to get the treaties approved. The Law of the Sea Treaty, for example, is being promoted as a method of "protecting U.S. sovereignty" in spite of the fact that it does nothing of the sort. And the small arms treaty is promoted as having nothing to do with individual gun rights but is rather an attempt to address gun sales by "rogue nations."
But the gun treaty applies directly to the United States and lumps the nation together with so called "rogue nations." Thus, the treaty would directly impact gun sales in the U.S. and by extension the gun rights of individual citizens.

 By wp:   The moves being made by secstate Clinton, President {?} Obama and the majority of the U.S. Congress are so blatently a move to disarm and render helpless the people of the United States enabling the takeover and establishment of a totalitarian government.  American Patriots must stand together as the Fourth Branch of The U.S. Government established by our fore fathers for just this situation.  WE, THE PEOPLE, ARE THE MOST POWERFUL BRANCH OF THIS NATIONS GOVERNMENT.  IT IS TIME TO SEND THE TYRANTS PACKING,, OUT OF THIS NATION.  THEY ARE NOT AMERICANS,BUT TRAITORS.

‘Ballet of Growth and Fusion’: See the Time-Lapsed View of a Face Developing in the Womb

The Blaze has recently brought you a video showing the first footage of an MRI revealing twins interacting in the womb and another showing the MRI of a live birth. Here’s another video first: the time-lapsed development of the human face in the womb.

The footage, put together from data of embryo scans from one to three months after conception, is part of BBC’s “Inside the Human Body” series. New Scientist explains further:
Virtual sculptures were created at different stages, then combined by mapping hundreds of points to corresponding dots on the other models. “It was a nightmare for structures like the nose and palate, which didn’t exist for most of the animation,” says David Barker, the graphics researcher on the production. “Their formation is a complicated ballet of growth and fusion of moving plates of tissue.”
A close look at the animation reveals that a face forms from three main features that rotate into place, meeting at the philtrum, the groove above the top lip. The transformation occurs with very precise timing and delays can result in a cleft lip or palate.
The show’s host Michael Mosely explains in the clip that the images show “how our faces don‘t just ’grow,’ but fit together like a puzzle.” He says that the sections of the puzzle, meet in the middle of your top lip, “creating the groove that is your philtrum.”

This Is the Pro-Christian, Anti-Obama & Anti-Gay Marriage Letter That Actor Brad Pitt’s Mother Wrote to a Local Newspaper

Considering their overwhelming support for gay marriage and President Barack Obama, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt probably won’t be too happy about this story. The Springfield News-Leader, a newspaper in Springfield, Missouri, has confirmed that an anti-Obama, anti-gay marriage letter that urges Christians to vote for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, was penned by Pitt’s mother, Jane Pitt.
In her note, Pitt responded to another writer’s post that was critical of Romney and Mormonism. In her brief letter, she claimed that she’s a Christian and she urged other believers to strongly consider voting for the GOP candidate, despite potential ideological differences concerning his theology.
“I think any Christian should spend much time in prayer before refusing to vote for a family man with high morals, business experience, who is against abortion, and shares Christian conviction concerning homosexuality just because he is a Mormon,” she wrote.

But the letter went beyond merely supporting Romney. Pitt also spent some time explaining her reasons for opposing President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign.
“Any Christian who does not vote or writes in a name is casting a vote for Romney’s opponent, Barack Hussein Obama — a man who sat in Jeremiah Wright’s church for years, did not hold a public ceremony to mark the National Day of Prayer, and is a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage,” Pitt continued.
