Obama admin introduces gay rights declaration at UN

Comments ()Tags: gender identity, obama, sexual orientation, unWASHINGTON, D.C., March 22, 2011 ( LifeSiteNews.com )- An upcoming declaration by the Obama administration will mark the first time the United States has endorsed homosexualist policy at the United Nations.

The statement condemning any criminal punishment against homosexual activity and urging greater attention to rights related to sexual orientation is scheduled for delivery Tuesday at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, reported the Associated Press Monday.

The document, which has received support from 80 other countries, also calls upon the UN to scrutinize how governments worldwide treat homosexuals.

While acknowledging that “these are sensitive issues for many,” the document urges the finding of “common ground” and states that “in dealing with sensitive issues, the Council must be guided by the principles of universality and non-discrimination.”

It also reaffirms a 2008 UN statement in support of the homosexualist agenda that urged an end to discrimination based upon “sexual orientation or gender identity,” and commends the “continued attention to human rights issues related to sexual orientation and gender identity within the context of the Universal Periodic Review.”

Ambassador Eileen Chamberlain Donahoe said that the U.S. government is “proud” to have taken a leading role in promoting the statement.

“Human rights are the inalienable right of every person, no matter who they are or who they love,” she said.“The U.S. government is firmly committed to supporting the right of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals to lead productive and dignified lives, free from fear and violence. We look forward to working with other Governments from all regions and with civil society to continue dialogue at the Council on these issues.“

Although professing marriage as existing only between one man and one woman on the campaign trail, President Obama has courted the homosexualist lobby since taking office. Most recently he announced that his government would not defend the Defense of Marriage Act in court. Congressional Republicans later confirmed they would step up to defend the federal law, which is likely to face a challenge in the U.S. Supreme Court.

When the international homosexualist movement was gaining steam in the early 2000s, the United States under the George W. Bush administration had declined to sign on to similar documents

Reagan was the beginning of the corporate takeover of America...he was their paid spokesman, at least. If only they'd thought to round up a washed-up actor to play the role of R'Money this election, they might not be having such problems with the sale. Maybe they think he wants too big a percentage of the gross instead of a straight kickback?

What Will They Call the Romney Stimulus?(Part III)
One of my pet speculations for the last year has involved one certainty — a Romney administration would engage in short-term Keynesian stimulus — and one question: What will they call it?
In his provocative feature on what both Obama and Romney might try to accomplish as early as January 2013, New York magazine’s Jonathan Chait suggests that nomenclature isn’t the key point. Rather, it’s that, with Romney in the White House, Republicans could tie short-term stimulus to what they’re really after (rate reductions on the wealthy). He paints the following scenario:
A plan that increases deficits in the short run allows him to offer a political olive branch to Democrats without breaking faith with his own base. They’ve been calling for more stimulus since 2009, haven’t they? Well, here’s their chance! This was the approach Republicans used during George W. Bush’s first term to Shanghai Democrats into voting for their tax cuts. They would attach the short-term stimulative tax cuts Democrats demand (focused more on the middle class) to long-term tax cuts for the rich, and dare Democrats to mock their own constituents’ economic pain by opposing it.
This seems plausible.
To answer the question I’ve been asking all along, the Romney administration will pass a stimulus package in 2013 — and they will call it Compromise.

If Romney wins there will absolutely be some type of stimulis, unfunded of course because we are broke, and the rightwingers will cheer. Fcking hypocrites.

FACT: The National Debt increased by 189% under Reagan, 55% under George H.W. Bush and 86% under George W. Bush who left our country bankrupt.
Now, compare that to the increase of 37% under Clinton and the current 35% under Obama. Anyone concerned about the debt should know better than to put a Republican in charge. Romney will be no different. He has already stated that he will not address the issue of the national debt in his first four years in office. Wake up!!!
Wake up and smell the Obama snakeoil!!!

The ultraconservative website LifeSiteNews today is boasting that Ken Cuccinelli, the Attorney General of Virginia and a leading candidate for Governor, told a gathering of activists from groups such as the American Life League and the Campaign Life Coalition, which founded LifeSiteNews, that he uses the website as part of his anti-choice activism:...

This is the same website that demanded the Catholic Church excommunicate Democratic politicians, maintained that feminists were to blame for the Costa Concordia disaster, compares gays and lesbians to pagans and fervently supports ex-gay ‘reparative’ therapy. Jalsevac even asked for donations to promote “freedom from the homosexual lifestyle”:...

Here is the skinny liar.
Our fantastic Democratic President Clinton turned over a USA economy that was generating full employment, surplus and everything was great for everybody!
Now: if Bush had just sat there and "let it ride" this perfect economy would have generated $6 trillion in debt reduction! Even with wars would have generated $4 trillion!
But no.
Bush/Cheney had to have tax cuts for the richest!
So, surplus $6 trillion towards debt reduction was turned into $5 trillion of additional debt!
That is a $11 trillion swing in the wrong direction!
The biggest ripoff in history! The Republican projections of the economy never came true. Tax cuts have increased the debt. They borrowed to hand out millions to billionaires!
A chimp could have sat there and did better by doing nothing.
So?$11 trillion up in smoke! Still have millions without insurance? They solved nothing! But rich guys have more money.
Mitt Romney says: hey! That looks great! Let's do it again! Only this time ramp up those rich guy tax cuts 4 times more! Insane.
He will cut Medicare, social security, Medicaid, affordable care act, raise taxes on regular folks.......and ruin the country again.
WAKE UP DUMBFFFFFCK!
Vote for Mitt and save American Ambassadors!
