Texas to World Court: Execution still on!
World Net Daily ^ | 7/27/08 | WND Staffer

Posted on 07/17/2008 12:46:59 PM PDT by gridlock

Father of victim says U.N. body's order 'don't mean diddly'

Texas is refusing to bow to yesterday's World Court order to stay the Aug. 5 lethal injection of convicted rapist-killer and illegal alien Jose Medellin.

(snip)

Texas Gov. Rick Perry's office rejected Mexico's complaint.

"The world court has no standing in Texas, and Texas is not bound by a ruling or edict from a foreign court," Perry spokesman Robert Black said. "It is easy to get caught up in discussions of international law and justice and treaties. It's very important to remember that these individuals are on death row for killing our citizens."

(snip)

Randy Ertman, father of Jennifer, a 14-year-old girl Medellin raped and murdered, criticized the World Court for attempting to intervene.

"The world court don't mean diddly," he said. "This business belongs in the state of Texas. The people of the state of Texas support the execution. We thank them. The rest of them can go to h-ll."

Adolfo Peña, father of Elizabeth, a 16-year-old girl Medellin also raped and murdered, concurred with Ertman.

"I believe we've been through all the red tape we can go through," he told the Houston Chronicle. "It's time to rock and roll."

As comedian Ron White says, “Other states are debating whether to out-law the death penalty - my state is putting in an express lane.”

I am not a big fan of the death penalty, but I am even less a fan of the World Court. Even less than that of Jose Medellin.

When they’ve completed the execution, the remains shouwl be put in a box, shipped to The Hague, and taken to the steps of the “World Court”. The carcass should then be dumped on those steps and left for the “Court” to dispose of.

Pres. Jorge Bush will intervene again to spare him. He has used OUR justice dept. to defend mexican criminals many times already.
Ask Ramos and Compeon the Border agents who are rotting in prison for defending OUR borders.

This business belongs in the state of Texas. The people of the state of Texas support the execution. We thank them. The rest of them can go to h-ll.

AMEN to that Dad, I Roger every bit of that.

As Judge Roy Bean said, west of the Pecos, "Some folks need killin'".

Medellin fits that bill to a tee and it is just a shame he was not done in before the animal raped and killed these two young girls.

The Governor has it right too..."The world court has no standing in Texas, and Texas is not bound by a ruling or edict from a foreign court."

Way to go Texas, my native home!

Let me get this straight...Mexico instructs millions of its citizens to invade the US, take American jobs, strain our schools/hospitals/jails/clinics and then send TENS OF BILLIONS back to their country to keep its economy going...killing over 4,000 US citizens per year...then these wonderful imports commit serious crimes and are on death row for FIRST DEGREE MURDER...and Mexico wants them to remain in US jails for life on our dime (what’s new) vs. facing their death US sentences...

Wow. I guess they really want it both ways...

Deport now, there is no choice.

A bunch of judges, appointed by who-knows-who, who wear silly little collars and sit in The Hague. They don't have jurisdiction in the rest of the United States, much less Texas!

I love Texans. They say what we're all thinking. Doesn't matter whether it's the death penalty, criminal actions against our soldiers, or any other issue, "the world court don't mean diddly."

No, no, no, 'ol Sparky, the electric chair was retired a long time ago. Now Texas uses lethal injection, which is known as 'ol Drippy.

And the Belgium-based World Court means 'ol squat in Texas.

international law expert Sarah Cleveland warned if the U.S. ignores the U.N. court order, many other countries may follow its example. "...When a global leader like the U.S. refuses to comply with its clear international legal obligations (and everyone agrees that this is a clear legal obligation), it undermines the willingness of other states to comply with their own obligations and it inspires them not to trust us to obey ours."

Oh, really? "Everyone agrees that this is a clear legal obligation"? Who's "everyone," Sarah? Anyone other than your own lib looney pals? Or is this just the UN anti-American "everyone"?

Since when did anyone agree that we have a responsibility to follow the rulings of this foreign court?

We're not even signers to the treaty that created it.

Thankfully, the World Court has no jurisdiction over American Courts.....yet...

It is frightening to think that as a presidential candidate, Barack Obama has mentioned his willingness on many occassions to entertain the desires of foreign powers and allow other nations to directly influence his policy and the direction of our nation. This attitude is not limited to Obama however but has been expressed many times particularly on the Democrat side of the aisle.

I am reminded of Pres. Washington's warnings to his fellow citizens upon relinquishing his presidency namely his warning regarding political parties and their weaknesses. His remarks prove to be rather prescient in light of today's attitudes being pushed by the Democrats and the press.

Here is just a small relevant portion of that speech:

Without looking forward to an extremity of this kind (which nevertheless ought not to be entirely out of sight), the common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it.

It
(Here Pres. Washinton is referring to the problem with political parties in general) serves always to distract the public councils and enfeeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which finds a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions. Thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another.

We as Americans need to take heed, remember such warnings, and be prepared to jealously protect our sovereignty instead of relinquishing it without so much as a wimper.
