Ironic to say the least. Seems like a commission to study police brutality composed of ex-SEALs and Delta Force military.

Apparently we just have too many human rights widely pursued. We just cannot allow promotion of rights widely?

So, in a very remarkable demonstration of conflicted RW ideas about human rights, we see demonstrated the paradoxical conservative dogma where the RW is allegedly in favor of human rights, just not too much or for too many people.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday unveiled a new Commission on Unalienable Rights, a panel he said is aimed at providing him with “an informed review of the role of human rights in American foreign policy.”



The panel will be headed up by Mary Ann Glendon, a Harvard law professor and former ambassador to the Vatican under George W. Bush. Glendon is also a social conservative who has been a prominent anti-abortion voice, which could lend credence to the concerns among human rights activists that the commission is a ploy to undercut LGBTQ and women’s rights under the guise of religious liberty.

In remarks at the State Department on Monday, Pompeo noted that “words like ‘rights’ can be used by good or evil,” decrying how some have “hijacked” human rights rhetoric to be used for “dubious or malignant purposes.”

"Other special interest groups have sought to expand the definition of a 'human right' to include virtually anything. If everything is a human right then the term begins to have little meaning," he (Perkins) said.

Holy War? Pompeo Preaches to Pro-Israel Christian Confab
The Secretary of State took his case against Iran to the Evangelical faithful, making it a matter of religious life, or death.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave a pointedly religious speech Monday that sounded like he was rallying fellow Pro-Israel Christians around the inevitably of a U.S. confrontation with Iran.​
Pompeo delivered his 2,000-plus word speech, titled “The U.S. and Israel: a Friendship for Freedom,” before a 5,000-plus gathering of Christians United for Israel (CUFI) in Washington, D.C. Led by founder and chairman John Hagee, the annual event also boasted speeches from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Vice President Pence, and National Security Advisor Ambassador John Bolton.​
In other words, every member of Trump’s inner circle who has spent the last several weeks of escalating tensions banging the drums of war against Iran.​
Members of CUFI, which calls itself the largest pro-Israel organization in the U.S.,have been spending the early part of the week lobbying lawmakers on Capitol Hill. “Fourteen years ago, I invited 400 of America’s leading evangelicals to come to Cornerstone Church in San Antonio to give birth to CUFI. Today, by the grace of God, we are seven million-plus standing united in defense of Israel and the Jewish people,” Hagee told the crowd assembled in the cavernous Washington Convention Center.​
Pompeo was clearly taking his case against Iran to Hagee’s faithful in his own remarks Monday, beginning with a brief history lesson on the modern state of Israel, and then asking the audience to “compare Israel’s reverence for liberty with the restrictions on religious freedom facing Christians and people of all faiths throughout the rest of the Middle East,” where “if a Muslim leaves Islam it is considered an apostasy, and it is punishable indeed by death.”​
From lines like “can I get an amen?” to “this is what it must have looked like to be part of the crowd for the fishes and loaves,” Pompeo’s address was filled with religious metaphors that were right on cue for the massive Evangelical convocation.​
“Christian support in America for Zion—for a Jewish homeland—runs back to the early Puritan settlers, and it has endured for centuries,” said Pompeo. “Indeed, our second president, a couple years back, said… ‘I really wish the Jews again in Judea an independent nation.'”​
The speech was posted on the State Department website and emailed to all subscribers. With “Christians United for Israel” emblazoned behind him....​

With every new move and manipulation they take, their long term intention becomes more clear. We just have to help others see it before the 2020 vote. This time people can't withdraw from voting simply due to the fact their candidate didn't win their campaign. The main focus is to get Trump/GOP out.

Without a doubt, they have a plan, and their base is very engaged, we have to get our sideliners to get into the game and get out and vote.

The Idiot Universe is vast and only partially explored. Trump is determined to go where no man has gone before.
The Islamidiotocracy certainly has set itself apart where [QUOTE / LTP : Medical treatment is not a right.. unalienable, inalienable, or otherwise. Both the left and the right delight in taking a giant shit on the Constitution /
while jihad, Christian, & police state actions bordering on war crimes is a rite of constitutionality.
