Perfect case for the ICC.

The International Criminal Court (Insider Report, October 16) is looking for the perfect case. The perfect case would be the one that would convince the American public that the United States should join the ICC.

We are actually one of a few holdouts that haven't already signed up, for good reason. The "globalists" have been trying to sucker us into this one for a long time.

The ICC bills itself as being the only alternative in prosecuting top-level war criminals: people that are heads of state and high officials, like presidents, dictators, and other high-level government officials.

Once a country joins the ICC (a United Nations subsidiary by the way), it can arrest and take anyone into custody who has violated any number of laws of the UN. It would be able to arrest anyone for something as simple as criticizing the UN. There would be no Constitution or Bill of Rights that would stand in the way. Of course, this muscle won't be flexed until the world's most powerful country, the United States, gets on board.

This is where the perfect case comes in. To make the perfect case, after the United States passes a law so that it could not prosecute its president, other high officials, or anyone else for war crimes (a law like the Military Commissions Act of 2006, passed recently by our Congress, would work nicely), the ICC needs a U.S. citizen, preferably a president or other high official, who has committed atrocious war crimes against humanity, like torture, murder, assassination, and the needless killing of innocent noncombatants--men, women, and children. To enable this step, the globalists would turn their media assets loose to expose the crimes of a president or other high official to the American public. The crimes would be so horrible that the American people would cry for criminal justice. The only justice to be found, however, would be at the ICC, since America would no longer be able to prosecute one of its own.

If the day comes when we are faced with a situation where we are unable to prosecute our own war criminals, as we presently are, and we have to turn these people over to the ICC, then this nation will cease to exist as a sovereign nation.

For these reasons, I urge you to contact your congressmen and insist on a repeal immediately of the Military Commissions Act of 2006, and ask where they stand on the ICC.
