“For the first time in American history, the majority of the Supreme Court no longer treats a parent’s right to control and direct the upbringing of their child as a fundamental liberty,” former U.S. magistrate judge William Wagner. “We now have a new situation where government itself becomes the standard and whoever’s in power gets to say what your liberty is.” That is, after all, what legal precedence says.
This warrants concern for former Michigan congressman Peter Hoesktra: “There are people each and every day who are scheming to take away parental rights to start to destroy the family structure,” he said. “What we’ve seen over the last 40 to 50 years is continual legislative and judicial overreach going into areas that we never thought they would reach into.”
This overstepping of the states’ role can be traced to oppressive European regimes of the not-so-distant past.
“Karl Marx said that in order to establish a perfect socialist state, you have to destroy the family,” said family psychologist and author John Rosemond. “You have to substitute the government and its authority for parental authority in the rearing of children.”
One of the vehicles to usher in socialist policies over children is an international treaty known as the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child, or the UNCRC. Adopted by the UN in 1989, this essentially says that anytime there is a conflict or dispute between a child and a parent, a government bureaucrat gets to decide what is in the best interest of the child instead of the parent deciding what is in the best interest of the child. Do you see how the Bradley Amendment plays into the UNCRC?
The Supremacy Clause says that a treaty becomes a part of the supreme law of the land, which overrides state laws and overrides state constitutions. Almost all of American law of parenting kids is state law, so this treaty becomes supreme over virtually all American law of parents and children. Bill Clinton approved the treaty during his administration, so all it takes is two-thirds of the U.S. Senate to approve it in order for it to become a part of the supreme law of the land. Your child, as evidenced by law on all sides is that your child, as property, is important political capital.
American parents are losing their rights and don’t even know it. Featuring 3 reenactments based on real cases, “Overruled” (see below) is a 35-minute docudrama that exposes how the rights of parents in America are being eroded. The fact is that legal precedence has continually eroded the rights of all Americans based on judicial decisions. This has been ongoing since the 1930’s. Surprise. Now, if the state wants this responsibility, then certainly, they are responsible for dissolving the human family as we know it, whether it is understood or not. Also, if this is the case, parents are no longer responsible for the children that they ‘sire.’ They have become tools for state endorsed ‘breeding.’ Your responsibility in the matter, in the eyes of the state, is increasingly dubious at best, and they would rather you have little to say on the matter.
