Key Treaties That Threaten American Sovereignty, Which the Senate Must Oppose During the Biden Presidency

KEY TAKEAWAYS

•   The new Biden administration will likely seek to revive several treaties and agreements that failed to gain Senate approval in the past

•   These will likely include treaties on human rights, environmental agreements, arms control agreements, and the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea.

•   The Senate must fulfill its constitutional role to scrutinize treaties and reject any that undermine the interests and national sovereignty of the american people

The  Trump  Administration  was  rightfully  skeptical of treaties and other international agreements  that  would  result  in  the  loss  of  American  sovereignty.  The  new  Biden  Administration will likely seek to revive several treaties or  agreements  that  failed  to  gain  congressional  approval in the past.

Over the next four years, particularly the first two while Democrats have certain control of Congress, the Biden Administration can be expected to push for  U.S.  ratification  of  a  number  of  international  agreements, including human rights conventions, environmental agreements, arms control treaties, and the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea. The U.S. Congress must fulfill its constitutional role by scrutinizing  such  treaties  and  rejecting  any  that  undermine the interests and national sovereignty of the American people.

Human Rights Conventions

Prior  Democratic  Administrations  have  tried  and  failed  to  push  through various human rights conventions. In 2009, President Barack Obama signed the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and submitted it to the Senate, then controlled by his own party, for advice and consent. The convention ultimately failed on the Senate floor by a vote of 61 to 38. Since the CRPD was signed when he served as Vice President, President Joe Biden may feel obligated to make another push for ratification.

He'd need a 2/3 Senate vote to approve a treaty- he'll never get it for these things.

Never under estimate the power of Chuckie and the DEMS, especially with Mitch reverting back to his country club ways.
GOD Bless America, have mercy upon this country and stop the evil that has a stranglehold on our Republic from prevailing.

I doubt if the third installment of the Hussein Regime is going to be different from the first two.

The illegal alien from Kenya simply signed agreements and the Senate voted that they didn't need to ratify them...Mitch McConnell went along with this then, he'll go along with it under the Usurper, too.

These "agreements" will only be "treaties" if they're submitted by Team Ho-Jo as such, and they're not going to do that.

The GOP is not the party leadership.  The GOP is the party MEMBERSHIP.   The members need to kick the leaders out if they leaders are going the wrong way.  No coddling allowed.

Good point, unfortunately.

They s/also be challenging some of these Executive Orders in which he's bypassing Congress.Ordering girls' sports to admit trannies s/require legislation.It's good that several states are ignoring the Ex. Order and working to pass laws prohibiting trans. from competing in womens' sports.

You're talking about the lawless here, never forget Biden's got a pen and pudding. But more importantly he has a puppet master and just like Barry ignored the Senate with the Paris bullshit(hey look still not approved by Senate but it's baaack) Barry won't care now in his third term either.
