The great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreign nations is, in extending our commercial relations to have with them as little political connection as possible.How do you feel today? Cosmopolitan? International maybe? Do you feel any different than yesterday? Well you could be different depending on how the U.S. Supreme Court rules on a certain case today. The Court’s ruling could conceivably make you a citizen of the world while making itself a lower court answerable to a greater power.
So far as we have already formed engagements let them be fulfilled with perfect good faith. Here let us stop.
Europe has a set of primary interests which to us have none or a very remote relation. Hence she must be engaged in frequent controversies, the causes of which are essentially foreign to our concerns.
Hence, therefore, it must be unwise in us to implicate ourselves by artificial ties in the ordinary vicissitudes of her politics or the ordinary combination and collisions of her friendships or enmities. – President George Washington, Farewell Address 1776
The U.S. Supreme Court will hear the case Medellin v. Texas today, Wednesday, a case which will set the precedence that there is a higher law, a Court higher than the United States Supreme Court. And if that is true that would also mean that the U.S. constitution is no longer the Supreme law of the United States of America.
When I say that there is a higher law, I’m not referring to God although many in this nation might feel that the entity which I’m referring to is akin to God. What I am speaking about is the International Court of Justice in The Hague.
The Bush administration will be siding with Mexico and Internationalist against the state of Texas today in a test of American National Sovereignty against International One World government.
The case The People vs. Jose Medellin convicted Medellian and sentenced him with the death penalty. Medellin confessed in 1993 to participating in the rape and murder of two Houston teenagers. Jennifer Ertman and Elizabeth Pena were sodomized and strangled with their shoe laces. Medellin bragged about keeping one girl's Mickey Mouse watch as a souvenir of the crime.
Medellin and four others were convicted of capital murder and sent to Texas' death row. A juvenile court sentenced Medellin's younger brother, who was 14 at the time, to 40 years in prison.
Medellian is an Illegal alien and because he was not informed that he could seek help from the Mexican Consulate at the time of his arrest and subsequent sentencing the Mexican Government through the International Court is attempting to thwart U.S. law because they do not believe in the death penalty.
They will make this attempt today in the case before the U.S. Supreme Court, Medellin v. Texas. This is a case which the Bush administration intervened in to attempt to block state law at the request of the Mexican government after Mexico made its case before the International Court of Justice at The Hague (ICJ) and the ICJ found that Medellin was not informed of his right to contact the Mexican Consulate for legal assistance.
That, according to The Hague, was a violation of a 1963 treaty known as the Vienna Convention.
Also Medellin v. Texas not only could determine the fate of Jose Medellin but 50 other Mexican killers on death rows in the United States, including more than a dozen in Texas. All of them say they were not told of their right to contact Mexico for legal help.
[I]n 2004 the Mexican government obtained a ruling from the International Court of Justice on Mr. Medellin's behalf that state police had violated his right to access to consular officials from Mexico. Mr. Medellin, who was born in Mexico, has lived in the US since he was nine years old, although he was never a legal resident.President Bush issued a memorandum two months later that the US courts would implement the ICJ ruling. The Bush administration is expected to argue that the president's executive power over treaty provisions outranks state laws.
The judgment found that the Texas authorities failed to tell Mr. Medellin and 50 other death row inmates from Mexico of their rights under the Vienna Convention to seek advice from the Mexican consulate, or to inform consular officials about their cases.
However, Texas argues that Mr. Bush's memo on the death penalty case would set a dangerous precedent for presidential power. The state argues that President Bush's action disregards earlier verdicts by an appeals court and the Supreme Court that Mr. Medellin was not entitled to invoke his rights as a Mexican citizen because he had not raised the issue at his original trial.
One other amazing fact need to be considered here as well, Houston, Texas where Jose Medellian was arrested and convicted of the wanton and brazen acts of sodomizing, gang raping and murdering two teenaged girls is a sanctuary city. (see list of sanctuary cities yours could be one!
That means that because Mexico and Illegal alien activists and Illegal alien supporters in this country influenced local law in the city of Houston, Houston officials by law and policy are required not to ask for country or place of origin of any person.
While this makes it easier for Mexican nationals to live freely and gain access to our American society it also makes it impossible to comply with 1963 Vienna treaty or any law that requires that Illegal Mexican nationals in this country be informed of their International Rights to be represented by the Mexican Consulate when they violate American law.
As sanctuary laws are presently followed they force officials to treat everyone the same, to treat everyone as Americans. To now demand that Mexican nationals get special treatment, because they are governed not by our laws but international laws further supports the reason why the American people rejected the President’s Comprehensive Immigrant Reform earlier this year and want the 20 to 60 million illegal aliens out of the country.
Finally, if the Supreme Court rules in favor of Medellin today Illegal Aliens will virtually have diplomatic impunity status in the United States of America giving another special interest group special privileges that the rest of us don’t have and at the same time it would make a mockery of our constitution, as well as itself as a court.
A ruling in favor of Medellin would hand over final authority in such matters to an international body and make that court superior to our own. I doubt that President George Washington (or any of the founding fathers) would approve!
