HR 5, The Equality Act – OPPOSE

Status as of July 27, 2019:  Passed the House on May 17, 2019 (236-173). See H. Rept. 116-56. Referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee on May 20, 2019. No other action taken.Below is the congress.gov description in blue:

This bill prohibits discrimination based on sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity in areas including public accommodations and facilities, education, federal funding, employment, housing, credit, and the jury system. Specifically, the bill defines and includes sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity among the prohibited categories of discrimination or segregation.

The bill expands the definition of public accommodations to include places or establishments that provide (1) exhibitions, recreation, exercise, amusement, gatherings, or displays; (2) goods, services, or programs; and (3) transportation services.

The bill allows the Department of Justice to intervene in equal protection actions in federal court on account of sexual orientation or gender identity.

The bill prohibits an individual from being denied access to a shared facility, including a restroom, a locker room, and a dressing room, that is in accordance with the individual’s gender identity.

HR5 is not in line with our values or our constitution.  It would force the entire country to conform to the radical and unproven ideology that denies the differences of biological males and females and denies the privacy rights of citizens to protect their physical modesty. It unjustly allows biological males to compete in female athletic competitions even though the biological makes have a known physiological advantage.  It aims, among other things to close hospitals that are affiliated with religious denominations that acknowledge the innate biological differences of the sexes and object to mutilation of physical bodies and/or the intentional destruction of an individual’s fertility.

There are numerous articles that explain why this bill is dangerous.  An interview with Dr. Michelle Cretella, a pediatrician and executive director of the American College of Pediatricians can be found at The Heritage Foundation’s website.  Refer to the Daily Signal’s May 10, 2019, article in which Dr. Cretella gives her perspective of the bill and its medical ramifications. She notes that the bill will cause doctors to do harm which goes against their oath of doing no harm. The link is below:

HR204, The American Sovereignty Restoration Act – SUPPORT

Status as of July 27, 2019: Referred to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs on January 3, 2019. No other action taken.

While the issue of getting the United States out of the United Nations has been introduced many times in Congress, we remain hopeful this will make progress, and be enacted. Congressman Mike Rogers (R-AL) introduced the bill in January 2019. In a nutshell it will:

  1. Repeal the United Nations Participation Act of 1945; Terminate US membership in the UN; Closure of United States Mission to United Nations.
  2. Repeal the United Nations Headquarters Agreement Act.
  3. Not authorize funds to be appropriated or otherwise made available for assessed or voluntary contributions of the US to the UN or to any other association belonging to the UN.
  4. No longer be a part of any UN peacekeeping efforts.
  5. Repeal diplomatic immunity to any employee or agent or diplomat of the UN.
  6. Not allow any UN organization to use or occupy any property belonging to the US government.
  7. Repeal US involvement in UN conventions and agreements as well as other UN organizations such as WHO, UN environmental programs, and so forth.

This bill protects America’s sovereignty. According to an article written in January 2019, it said that “Our precious Declaration of Independence would be replaced with the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, putting security and global regulations over happiness and freedom.”  The link to that article is here:

Another good article to read is from the website, DC Dirty Laundry, started in July 2018 by Dean Garrison, a conservative and blogger since 2013. The link to the write-up by Tim Brown is below:

The UN’s Agenda 21/2030 is part of a worldwide effort to make all countries socialistic ones. They believe in countries without borders; a universal health care system; the distribution of wealth because they want to completely end poverty; they are atheists.

Update as of July 27, 2019: Referred to the House Committee on House Administration on May 2, 2019. No other action taken.This resolution was recently introduced by Rep. Ted Budd (R-NC-13) on May 2, 2019, and is entitled, Recognizing the value and importance of the Electoral College.
