    Executive director David Morrissey, US International Council on Disabilities

    in Motivation

    Executive director David Morrissey, MPS the US International Council on Disabilities will speak about‘Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities CRPD) and the importance of it to all people with disabities now in 2014!


    The United States signed the CRPD in 2009. On December 4, 2012 the United States Senate considered the ratification of the CRPD but fell 5 votes short of the super majority vote required. The media coverage of the Senate’s failure to ratify the disability treaty has been overwhelming and the CRPD’s Senate leaders remain committed to bringing the disability treaty up in the 113th Congress.


    What is the “Disability Treaty?”


    The Disability Treaty (known as the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities,“CRPD”) is an international treaty that was inspired by U.S. leadership in recognizing the rights of people with disabilities. Why should the Senate vote for ratification?


    The Senate needs to fight for the 57.8 million Americans with disabilities, 5.5 million disabled American veterans, and the 1 billion people with disabilities around the world and vote to ratify the CRPD.


    Who supports ratification of the disability treaty?


    Ratification of the CRPD is supported by hundreds of disability organizations, civil rights groups, faith organizations, veterans groups, and major business groups including the Chamber of Commerce.

    THE TRUTH ABOUT THE 14TH AMENDMENMENT

    in Education

    http://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/amendmentxiv ~ 


    The Fourteenth Amendment (Amendment XIV) to the United States Constitution was adopted on July 9, 1868, as one of theReconstruction Amendments. The amendment addresses citizenship rights and equal protection of the laws, and was proposed in response to issues related to former slaves following the American Civil War. The amendment was bitterly contested, particularly bySouthern states, which were forced to ratify it in order for them to regain representation in Congress. The Fourteenth Amendment, particularly its first section, is one of the most litigated parts of the Constitution, forming the basis for landmark decisions such asRoe v. Wade (1973), regarding abortion, and Bush v. Gore (2000), regarding the 2000 presidential election. The amendment limits the actions of all state and local officials, including those acting on behalf of such an official.


    The second, third, and fourth sections of the amendment are seldom litigated. However, Section 2's reference to "rebellion and other crimes" has been invoked as a constitutional ground for felony disenfranchisement. The fifth section gives Congress enforcement power. The amendment's first section includes several clauses: the Citizenship Clause, Privileges or Immunities Clause, Due Process Clause, and Equal Protection Clause. The Citizenship Clause provides a broad definition of citizenship, overruling the Supreme Court's decision in Dred Scott v. Sandford (1857), which had held that Americans descended from African slaves could not be citizens of the United States. The Privileges or Immunities Clause has been interpreted in such a way that it does very little.

    WTBEP11 - The Abrahamic Covenant-pt10: Can you Sacrifice to be Tested?

    in Spirituality

    In "Winning the Battle for End time Possession: The Abrahamic Covenant pt10 - The Promise Tested to Ratify the Covenant" we see Abraham tested by Yahweh in order to ratify the covenant. Yahweh wanted to know if Abraham would trust Him to fulfill all things and bring about the eternal promise He made to make him a great nation even when it looked like the promise would be taken.


    Can you stand to be tested when it looks like all has failed? It is in that moment The Lord is looking to complete that which He began in you and is looking to see if you can withstand the test to see the promise ratified! Don't loose hope, your season is on the way and your promise is closer to being fulfilled that you think. It's only a test, but it may be the final test before your victory. Will you pass?

    Politics Done Right - Did this founding father sow the seed of division?

    in Politics Progressive

    This week’s show


    Did this founding father sow the seed of division?


    This was the week of the State of The Union speech. President Obama did a masterful job in expressing a set of policies that could be effected. Unfortunately, the pushback he received from the GOP makes much of the agenda unattainable. For this reason America must elect those that promise to work for the well-being of the working poor and working middle class.


    Today I will discuss Federalist 10. It was written by founding father James Madison. It is one of the eighty five papers written to lobby New York to ratify the US Constitution. Within the paper is a concerted effort to ensure a real democracy could not flourish.


    The paper is powerful. You will want to engage in this discussion.

    The ERA Would Change Everything

    in Politics Progressive

    The assault on women's rights being waged by red state governments throughout the country could not gain traction if the Constitution included the Equal Rights Amendment. This simple act was written in 1923 and passed by both houses of Congress nearly 50 years later -- only to fall just three states short of the 38 needed to ratify it into law.


    Our guest this week is Denise Schutz, co-founder of Progressive Women of Massachussetts, an advocacy group that informs and links women using social media. She has been active in seeking final passage of the Equal Rights Amendment for quite some and won't give up till it's part of the US Constitution.

    Episode 162 - Article 5 Amendment

    in Politics Conservative

    Patriot Come lately Talk Radio - British by birth, American by choice. The voice of the conservative resistance.
    After a week away I have some special guests for my listeners this week. I will be introducing the new 'I Am American' organization and some of their key members.
    Their mission is to unite Americans of all political stripes who are willing to put aside their partisian differences in order to build a coalitition strong enough to fight the political establishment and enact the sweeping reforms necessary to save our economy and the American dream!
    The problem that we face is an over-concentration of power in our nation's capital, which enables the Washington political elite to rack up limitless amounts of debt. That power is easily manipulated by special interests to enrich themselves at the expense of current and future generations.As we begin this epic fight, they pledge to preserve the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Second, we pledge to strengthen the Constitution by ratifying three constitutional amendments which will reform our nation’s economic policy and return power to the states. They are as easy to remember as A, B, C: Abolish and replace the Tax code
    Balance the Federal Budget
    Compel our government to follow the Constitution
    In order to ratify these amendments, we must unleash the Constitution’s Article V Convention which allows ‘We the American People – through our state legislators – to bypass and reform the federal government by ratifying constitutional amendments.

    Sheriff Jeff Christopher of Sussex County Delaware has become a victim of the abuse of power by the State of Delaware. The first state to ratify the Constitution is now in the process of stripping their Sheriffs with the power to enforce the laws in their state. Attorney General Beau Biden wants to appoint marshalls that will take their orders from the state rather than from the people. Please listen in to this most radio broadcast.
