Daley: Send gun industry lawsuit to World Court (frightening)
www.suntimes.com ^ | 4/28/2010 | FRAN SPIELMAN

Posted on 04/28/2010 9:12:06 AM PDT by OldDeckHand

Six years after the state Supreme Court dismissed his $433 million lawsuit against the gun industry, Mayor Daley today called for a change of venue — to the World Court normally reserved for disputes between nations and crimes against humanity.

Wrapping up the sixth annual Richard J. Daley Global Cities Forum, Daley convinced more than a dozen of his counterparts from around the world to approve a resolution urging "redress against the gun industry through the courts of the world" in The Hague.

"This is coming from international mayors. They're saying, 'We’re tired of your guns, America. ... We don't want those anymore because guns kill and injure people,' " Daley told a news conference at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Daly, after being rebuked by his State Supreme Court, and then foreclosed by legislation signed and implemented during the Bush administration, wants to take his anti-gun lawsuit to the so-called World Court, The IJC.

This is horrible news for supporters of the 2nd Amendment, and even worse news for people who value the supremacy of the US Constitution. A US mayor, using a world judiciary body to punish American companies when American due process disallows it, it EXACTLY NOT what the Framers had in mind.

Let’s give it a try!

He should be run out of America on a rail.

What is the definition of treason. Did this asshat not swear an oath to the Illinois Constitution or is Chicago now an “international” city subject to the World Court. If so, why does any Chicagoan pay US taxes much less Illinois taxes? God I hate the scum that is Chicago.

Go sue Russia first and let Putin slap you around. When I think of some third world hell hole with trucks full of armed people driving around, the first gun I think of is the AK-47.

Mexico City Mayor . . . "We should take actions with legal effects in order to stop this trade between the United States and Mexico."

I have an idea. What if we built an enormous wall at the border to keep our guns in?

In this article, the Mayor of Philadelphia, I think, says that he has a First Amendment right not to be shot.

First Amendment right not to be shot?

Today a new low level for discourse was just created by this guy.

The Declaration of Independence says that life is an inalienable right.

The Fifth Amendment says that nobody should be deprived of life by the government without due process of law.

Why do major cities get the worst leadership sometimes?

I have seen Daly pull some real crap, but to try and usurp United States Sovereignty is the limit.

He should be removed in shackles.

What jurisdiction would a so called World Court have over an American company? Can they impose fines? Doesn’t seem like they really can do much, we didn’t vote for them or allow our elected officials to appoint them did we?

"The U.S. government says, 'We cannot do a lot of things to stop this,'" Casauban said. "We should take actions with legal effects in order to stop this trade between the United States and Mexico."

We need to take a case to the world court to sue Mexico for all of the illegal drugs coming into our country from theirs. They are not doing enough!! Sue Mexico!!

"What jurisdiction would a so called World Court have over an American company?"

Right now, not much, at least not with respect to their American holdings. BUT, if we were to lose just one Supreme Court justice, that could ALL change.

There is a large and well-organized movement in liberal legal circles to get American courts to take more notice of international judicial decisions. Some want those opinions to be persuasive opinions, others on the far left want them in some circumstances to be binding opinions. This, of course, would be antithetical to every principle of American law since the countries inception.

When conservatives sit out elections, these are the consequences. Nothing matters more in a presidential election than the President's authority to nominate people to the federal bench, and especially the Supreme Court. The American way of life as we know it, rests with the health of 5 men.

They could do absolutely ANYTHING they want, the question is what would Zer0 allow them to do.

If Americans won't get protection by the US Government from foreign entities for lawful activities inside US borders, they are helpless.

Zer0 could order the IRS to seize all assets of the companies, they will act immediately and the redress is through federal court that may be as leftist as Zer0. Remember SCOTUS is 4-4-1. Same applies for federal protection of foreign police operating in the US. Impeachable only after the fact, with a Rat majority in both houses, rots of ruck.

Thank you for enlightening me on that subject. I am afraid for our nation and have resigned myself to hold off too much hope for a peaceful retirement...but, there is still some hope we can overthrow the left, but is must be more than congress and the white house. Has to be judicial, education, unions, etc.

NO standing

No controlling authority

Not a US court.

Not intelligent.

He is precluded by law to negotiate with foreign powers

The U.S. has no agreement with the world court.

dumbass.

The "World Court" doesn't have jurisdiction here. The minute we cede that position, we're screwed. The agenda driven left will use the "World Court" to destroy our country. Give them "the finger". Missiles to follow if they don't get the hint.

Because cities attract and nurture the dregs of society. Those bottom feeders vote. They vote for politicians who will use the power of taxation to keep them comfortably situated on government largess.

Daley’s corpse should be swinging from a rope.

He’s a worthless sack of crap. I still haven’t forgiven this piece of garbage for sending in bulldozers in the middle of the night and plowing “X’s” into the runways of Meigs Field, just because his stupid wife wanted a park in that location. Criminals, the both of them.

But it used to be a great place to visit. Last time I was there, I was attending some training classes and after the last class, a bunch of us walked across one of Chicago’s signature bridges over the river (LaSalle) and ate at Pizzeria Ora. Fabulous pizza (and beer).
