The ICC or International Criminal court was established by countries wishing to participate and it is an international tribunal to judge political leaders accused of international crimes was first proposed during the Paris Peace Conference in 1919 following the First World War by the Commission of Responsibilities. The issue was addressed again at a conference held in Geneva under the auspices of the League of Nations in 1937, which resulted in the conclusion of the first convention stipulating the establishment of a permanent international court to try acts of international terrorism. The convention was signed by 13 states, but none ratified it and the convention never entered into it by force. It was actually established in 2002 when the Rome Statute Treaty was enacted.
Almost 18 years ago the United States signed it BUT it was never ratified, in fact it was former President George W. Bush that authorized then Under Secretary John Bolton to recant the signature and in turn the United States has continually contested their jurisdiction over American citizens and personnel as today’s White House Briefing states.
While the ICC can issue “arrest warrants,” it cannot enforce them. The ICC “cannot ‘arrest’ anyone — it has no police power whatsoever,” said Georgetown University professor of government and foreign service Anthony Clark Arend.
During Barack Hussein Obama’s tenure as President he seemed more inclined to work with the ICC but never actually made any actual attempt to sign on because at the time he would have required at least 67 votes in the Senate but he had in the past encouraged other nations to cooperate with the ICC such as in the case of his home country of Kenya where as President he made the following statement (FULL STATEMENT HERE)
In pursuit of these goals, I urge all of Kenya’s leaders, and the people whom they serve, to cooperate fully with the ICC investigation and remain focused on implementation of the reform agenda and the future of your nation. ~Barack Hussein Obama
It’s important to know that the majority countries that are signatories are African nations and that the whole treaty is fostered by the United Nations whom have recently overstepped their authority, jurisdiction and bounds with the United States. Specifically, Nikki Haley U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations dismissed a poverty report by the United Nations, saying it’s “ridiculous” for the intergovernmental body to analyze American poverty as reported by The Hill. Where she made the case that Nations that evidently have issues like the majority members of the ICC are overlooked and they are focusing attention to the United States which looks as if they are attempting to “act” where they have no authority to do so.
The ICC was simply another step in the globalization roll out where countries voluntarily forfeit their sovereign rights and empower judges whom their own citizens never elect. The ICC does not align with the foundations of our Nation, because the United States of America is controlled by the people and for the people thus forfeiting rights of control to anyone, especially a foreign entity conflicts with our Constitution.
Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro Endorses Donald Trump’s Reelection
Ties have grown between America and Brazil in recent years.
Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro announced his endorsement of President Donald Trump in an event signing a new trade agreement between the United States and Brazil on Tuesday in the South American country.
“God willing I will be able to attend Trump’s second inauguration,” said Bolsonaro at a press conference detailing the new agreement with US National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien. Bolsonaro wanted to emphasize that he does not wish to “interfere” with the US election, but that his support for President Trump comes from the heart.
Bolsonaro and Trump have coordinated on policy to contain Venezuelan and Cuban-style Communism within South America. NSA O’Brien stated that relations between the US and Brazil have “never been stronger” at the trade agreement signing. The US designated Brazil a “non-NATO” ally in 2019, and the two countries have worked together on environmental policy to deter wildfires in the Amazon rainforest.
The new “mini-trade deal” signed between the two countries will regulate telecommunications exchanges between the US and Brazil. Brazil, which is the second-most populous nation in the New World with 211 million people, is an increasingly significant country in global business and diplomatic affairs.
Bolsonaro himself is somewhat of a right-wing populist in the veins of global leaders such as Viktor Orban, Andrzej Duda, and President Trump. He won election in 2018 in a landslide, capitalizing on alienation among the Brazilian electorate for the socialist-style governments that had governed the country for over a decade, mass crime, and preferences for gun rights.
Establishment liberals frequently receive endorsement from globalist leaders across the world, and never think twice about not crying “foreign interference” in the event that it benefits them. President Bolsonaro isn’t an American, but it certainly bodes well to see the leader of the Americas’ second largest country develop a strong working relationship with President Trump.
