WASHINGTON—U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on July 8 the creation of a commission on unalienable rights to advise him on how to best interpret human rights, based on the Constitution and the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

“Every once in a while, we need to step back and reflect seriously on where we are, where we’ve been, and whether we’re headed in the right direction,” he said. “I hope that the commission will revisit the most basic of questions: What does it mean to say or claim that something is, in fact, a human right?”

The Trump administration is committed to a “foreign policy from the founding” principals of the country, he said, and the creation of this bipartisan, interreligious group of human rights experts, philosophers, and activists is directed toward that goal.

This comes as some on the left in the United States, such as presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), are calling for an expanding list of what “human rights” encompasses. He’s called for a 21st-century economic Bill of Rights that includes things such as affordable housing, a job that “pays a living wage,” a pre-K-through-college education, and a “secure retirement.”

Pompeo warned that while words like “rights” can be “rays of light in a realm of darkness, … they can also be lethal arrows.”

How about they start with what isn't a right like free services. You can take pretty much anything Bernie says is a right and put it on the "NOT A RIGHT" list. Why doesn't Bernie just go live with the socialists/communists he loves so much instead of trying to destroy this country?

Frankly, I trust Trump's instincts over any commission. Commissions are Big Government promoting Big Government. They are a huge waste of time and money used to kill progress and spend more.

This is a solid commentary on the ignorance in this country over Founding and our laws.
Trump is about to clarify what and who we are. I have a feeling this will be pointed at our public school system curriculum. :thumbup:

Everything is a right now because it makes government overreach look moral and just. Healthcare is a right so the government must take it over. Education is a right so the government must control the sector and eliminate private institutions and for profit schools. That everyone wallows in mediocrity together.

That's it in a nutshell! :thumbup:
