You need to know how dangerously close the U.N. is to threatening our basic rights and liberties as Americans. You know of the scandals, impeachment and national security failures of Bill Clinton -- and the shameful pardons he issued. But there is a ticking 'time bomb' of the Clinton 'legacy' you may have never heard of -- even though it could demolish the foundation of freedom if we take no action.
That 'time bomb' is the United Nations International Criminal Court Treaty. In
1998, delegates from 160 countries met in Rome to plan an International Criminal
Court (ICC). This court:
. . .would not allow trial by jury. All cases are heard and verdicts rendered
by a panel of judges. Americans could be tried by judges from China, Libya,
Iran, or anywhere else hostile to our citizens and values;
. . .would not allow the accused to confront their accusers;
. . .would let persons being tried to be held in prison indefinitely, because no
bail may be set;
. . .would send convicted persons to serve their prison time in any country it chose. Americans could be sentenced to jail time in Cuba, Cambodia, Rwanda, or wherever!
. . .is run by judges and prosecutors who are answerable to no one! No appeal
of the judges' verdict is possible!
A perfect example of how such a court will destroy fundamental rights occurred
when the European Union fired a British economist for writing an article that
criticized its plans for one European currency. When the the economist appealed
to the European Court of Justice, that court ruled that the European Union could
lawfully suppress political criticism of itself and its leading figures, and
punish people who 'damaged the institution's image.'
Bill Clinton himself signed on to the ICC treaty in the closing days of his
administration. And even though the U.S. Senate has refused (so far) to consider approving it, the U.N. has announced it will begin implementing the treaty as soon as it has 60 signatures in favor of it --including the signature of Bill Clinton.
We need to WIPE OUT any U.S. participation in this tyrannical treaty. Please join us in a three-pronged effort.
1) go to the website www.conservativepetitions.com to send the petition I am sponsoring to President Bush, calling on him to repudiate this treaty NOW so this 'time bomb' doesn't blow up in our faces.
2) Email Congressman Ron Paul directly, letting him know you are behind his
effort to introduce a resolution in Congress opposing the International Criminal Court and calling on the President to repudiate it. We'll email you the address for this, along with a statement of that you can just copy, paste, and forward to Ron Paul, as soon as you sign the petition to the President.
Next, please forward this email to everyone you know! It is imperative you help
spread it wide and far so as much pressure is put on the President as possible
to repudiate this horrendous 'treaty.'
Thank you for acting promptly.

Ok lets hear you all bring up the "tin foil hat" crap now.
Can someone just forward the above to me so I can forward it to my addressees.
Thanks in advance.
I hate to nit pick but why is there text here that is not on the petition page. [b]If[/b] you added anything you should make sure it's clear what you added.
Heh, that word was supposed to be "petition"
...because when you get the email reply it has the extra text in it...
Cool...I voted for Keyes in all the primarys great to see him and Paul hook up
seeing as Keyes is the former United States Embasador to the UN he speaks with authourity on the subject...
We`ll just have to kick their collective asses
Slam dunking this topic back to the front page, after all, it's important.
I did not add anything, it may have been added at the site I got it from...?
Read my second post. The "thank you" email they send had the extra stuff in it.
If I had waited 10 minutes...
But at least it's going BTT.
This Keyes guy is my idea of what "Republican "used to mean.
