Obama’s Human Rights and Non-Nuclear Utopia
Posted By Veronica and Hugo Estrada On May 11, 2010 @ 8:00 am In NewsReal Blog | No Comments
Lest Senate Democrats choose to insert the language of S. 1346 into another bill, sitting en queue is The Bill Dick Cheney and the Sundry Bad Guys Who Prosecuted The Engagement Formerly Known as WOT TM should be worried about.
So should anyone else who defends America on foreign soil. So should our allies.
Introduced by Democratic Senators Durbin, Cardin, Feingold, Feinstein, and Leahy in June ‘09 and considered by the Senate Judiciary Committee May 6th, the Crimes Against Humanity Act would more than just ”[open] the door to demands of reciprocity from other nations that seek to prosecute US military personnel and government officials for alleged criminal acts committed anywhere in the world” by establishing “universal jurisdiction,” as Heritage argues.
This piece of legislation would also:
Not only would we not retaliate, we could not. Our nuclear posture would be eliminated by institutionalizing international law.
This would be the domino effect for nuclear disarmament, absent a Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, through the pretense of protecting human rights.
Under Obama, the nuclear option is off the table for America, as would be expected for our allies. Under this scenario, a swift end to World War II would not have been possible, without subsequent prosecution for war crimes. We would have been standing right next to Hitler’s men at The Hague.
And just as we’ve moved KSM to federal court, mirandized Abdulmutallab, and unnecessarily publicized the federal complaint against Faisal Shahzad — calculated moves to show compliance with international norms — the most Americans could expect if rogue nations like Iran or North Korea were to strike America might be prosecution in absentia.
S. 1346 establishes “universal jurisdiction” in America without Senate treaty ratification of ICC, effectively completing a parallel track, achieving the UN’s goal of international jurisdiction to prosecute crimes against humanity.
This is worse than Obama’s Treaty for Utopia, and his supposed naivete’ is fast disappearing.
Obama would guarantee every terrorist the constitutional rights afforded citizens of the United States, completely neutralize our defensive arsenal by preventing America from utilizing every available resource, and would subject all US citizens to potential prosecution in other countries through reciprocity.
The highest court of appeal would no longer be the Supreme Court.
The ICC would be the supreme law of the land.
And in setting this precedence, our allies will soon be pressured by the international community to follow suit in implementing similar ”Crimes Against Humanity” laws, limiting their own ability to defend themselves using any and all means necessary.
Veronica and Hugo enjoy researching, reflecting and informing the public through their writing about the infringements of our nation’s sovereignty and individual rights via international law. They’re keen on watching the UN and transnational progressive activism and their attempts to undermine the Constitution with impunity.
They live in Austin, TX, where they’re raising their crew of 5 all-American kids (same marriage).
