I am quite amused by the hysterical dolts over at G's blog. Those of you who know what I do for a living would be quite ammusedat the idiocy of self proclaimed legal experts.
The United States is an independent country. Our foreign policy is determined by the President of the USA. The only relevant factor in determining if something is legal is in US law and the Constitution. The whims of those at the UN do not determine what is legal.
Foreign law has no relevance in US law with some rare exceptions in immiration law on the family side. For example the fact that capital punishment is outlawed in country X has no relavance to US law. The only basis for deciding US law is the Constitution. Precedent in and of itself would have us still following Dred Scott and other bad precedents.
Moreover, the notion that judges are sacred and above the law is folly. Man famous judges have been senile, corrupt and there was a notorious klansman on the Supreme Court. I wouldn't want a block robed ACLU freak like Ruth Bader Ginsberg in a courtroom unless she were a defendant.
I hope Hillary is stupid enough to cite the UN as a moral authority. Gomer Kerry proposed placing the US military under US command in a book before he ran for office. Kerry ran from those statements in interviews.
I will let the defenders of Castro and Chavez pray at the altar of the UN. It seemed the UN has done a great job saving lives from the predations of bug eyed Communists, not. Moreover, if anyone ever tried to impose Marx on me I would pick up a gun and fight till the end. I am a man of peace, but history is littered with 1000 Katyn's. So far only Caucescu paid for crimes commited in the name of Marx.
