Does International Law trump US Criminal Law? (Update)

Update: DR from Maritime Sentry just let me know that the young girls in the story were 14 and 16.
This is sick, sick, sick and just plain old sick! The Glenn Beck email update from Thursday just came to me this morning. Normally if emails from a news source comes late I usually delete it. This time I opened it. What was included in the email, that I will include in this post, is not Glenn Beck's words but the words of Jerome R. Corsi, Ph.D. Please read this. Read about what our President is up to. Read what some sick bastards did to some innocent young girls. read about how President Bush wants to help...the bastards, yes, I said the bastards. He wants to help them, not the familie of these innocent girls!

  • Almost unbelievably, President Bush has argued at the U.S. Supreme Court that a Mexican murder on death row should be given a new trial at the demand of the UN's International Court of Justice in the Hague, all because this illegal alien killer was not allowed to first call the Mexican consulate when he was arrested.
  • At issue is the death penalty verdict for Jose Medellin, who confessed in 1993 to participating in the rape and murder of two Houston teenagers, Jennifer Ertman and Elizabeth Pena. Both were sodomized and raped for over an hour by Medellin and eight of his Mexican illegal alien gang members.
  • The girls made a fatal mistake. After a pool party that ended late, they decided to take a shortcut home by the railroad tracks, trying to make one of the girl's midnight curfew.
  • In their hour-long torture, one of the girls was hit so hard teeth were kicked out of her head. Medellin and his gang buddies strangled the girls to death with their belts. Medellin then boasted of keeping one girl's Mickey Mouse watch for his girlfriend as a souvenir of the crime.
  • Medellin and four others were convicted of capital murder and sent to Texas' death row. One of these criminals has already been executed for the crime.
  • Now, the Bush administration is arguing that Medellin's confession should be thrown out because years after the crime Medellin complained that his civil rights were violated because the Mexican consulate was not invited to take on his defense.
  • The Supreme Court has already rejected Medellin's complaint once and the Texas appellate court has properly instructed President Bush that under the Constitutional separation of powers the chief executive has no authority to tell Texas criminal courts how to conduct their business.
  • Medellin has now appealed the Texas court decision and the case is back at the Supreme Court a second time. This time, President Bush sent the Solicitor General to argue alongside Medellin's attorneys that international law has supremacy over U.S. criminal law, such that U.S. treaty obligations under the Vienna Convention trump Texas criminal law.
  • If Bush prevails and Medellin's confession is thrown out by the Supreme Court, there may not be enough evidence to retry Medellin, meaning he would have to be released despite his confession to the heinous crime.
  • What is at stake is the very foundation of U.S. judicial sovereignty.
  • Truly, the UN's World Court in the Hague hates the death penalty, just as Mexico is loathe to see even their worst criminals in the United States be put to death for their capital offenses.
  • The case, shocking to most Americans, provides further evidence that the Bush administration under the Security and Prosperity Partnership is doing everything possible to open our borders and placate Mexico.
  • If Medellin's appeal is successful, will our law enforcement officers be required to call the Mexican consulate every time a Mexican illegal alien is arrested?
  • Even worse, with so many sanctuary cities in place, the police dare not ask arrested Mexicans if they are legally here or not. So, if Medellin's appeal is successful, the police will have to call the Mexican consulate every time any Mexican, legal or illegal, is arrested.
  • Yet even this will not be enough.
  • Since the police cannot racially profile, maybe we should just call the Mexican consulate every time anybody is arrested. That way we can be sure we do not violate the civil rights of any Mexicans who commit violent capital crimes while they are illegally here in what used to be our country.
  • Jerome R. Corsi is a Staff Writer for World Net Daily and Author of The Late Great U.S.A.: The Coming Merger With Mexico and Canada.

How many ways is this sick? Let me count the ways. Our president, yes our president, the president who is supposed to put American's needs and safety, is putting the needs of these sick bastards ahead of everyone else. How dare he?! How dare he listen to the drivel of the UN?!

These sick bastards should not of been allowed to call anyone. Not even cry to mama. Let alone the Mexican Consulate.

Rape in itself is horrid, whether it is stranger rape or "date rape." But this was just horrendous. The things that were done were just SADISTIC and EVIL!!!!!

Medellin took her Mickey Mouse watch, to take it to his girlfriend, take it to his girlfriend as a souvenir????!!!!! WTF?????!!!!! Now this within itself deserves it's own subcategory of sickness and counting the ways.

Let's see, where shall I start?

  1. A Mickey Mouse watch- The article doesn't say how old the girls are. Doesn't matter though. Whether the victim is 1 yr or 100 yrs it is sick. But my point on the watch is this. The mention of the watch alone puts a personal story onto the young girls. It gives a glimpse into the victim. The fact that the watch had Mickey Mouse on it would say they were rather young. Maybe they could have been in high school, since some girls that age like to have stuff that is cartoonish. Even still, high school is young.
  2. More on the watch. He wanted to take it to his girlfriend for a souvenir?! Again, WTF?!
  3. What kind of female would want something that her boyfriend stole? Even worse, something he stole from a victim that was both his rape victim and murder victim? This girl has SERIOUS self esteem problems. I am sorry, but this is where forced sterilization is a good thing. Can you imagine her having a baby? I don't care if it is with another guy other than this Medellion or not. I hate to think of what kind of person her child would grow up to be. It would just be a waste of taxpayers dollars.

Medellion has no right to any appeals. The U.N. has no right to meddle in US business. This guy should be put to death. He should never be allowed to see the light of day.

Thank you for writing about this important issue. Too many people are turning a blind eye. Just because President and other elitists live in protected neighborhoods does not give them the right to allow our children to be preyed upon. Just so everyone knows, these girls who were brutally raped and murdered were only 14 and 16 years old.

Thank you DR. I am glad I am not alone in the outrage, towards the president, on this.
