The UN approaches

I tend to discount people who believe in conspiracy theories, with some exceptions.
Jews secretely controlling the US.
Aliens landed at Roswell.
Bush was behind the 9/11 attacks.
The UN wants to control the world.
The moon landing was faked.

Okay, Oliver Stone made a pretty convincing case in JFK, via Kevin Costner, with the most dramatic line, 'back, and to the left, back, and to the left".

But it turns out that one of these conspiracy theories may be coming true. From today's Houston Chronicle-
This week, Medellin's case makes its second trip to the Supreme Court. The issue now is not his confession to the murders of Jennifer Ertman and Elizabeth Peña, but something else he said during his arrest: He informed the police that he is a Mexican citizen. But officers didn't inform him of his right to contact the Mexican Consulate for legal assistance.

Ah, you silly police, you didn't realize that as an illegal alien in this country, he gets more rights, not less?

Fox News has made great hay of the fact that President Bush is siding with the illegals in this case, but really, he has to worry about international diplomacy, and being from Texas he is more sensitive to the illegal issue.

That doesn't stop me from saying that he 100% wrong in this. This man admitted to a gang rape and murder so heinous that the details aren't discussed on the TV news. Two young women were stripped of all their rights, not just the civil rights championed by the left, but their Constitutionally guaranteed rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

When a citizen of another country comes to the US, they implicitly agree to abide by our laws. Exceptions can be made, of course, for traffic laws or other petty violations that may amount to cultural differences. But rape and murder is also illegal in Mexico. So there is no real argument that this man did not know right from wrong.

So let's follow this line of logic. Citizens from another country are entitled to extra rights under a higher power, in this case, the International Court of Justice. The President of the US, in direct contravention to national sovereignty and popular opinion, sides with the UN. The US has now set the standard for surrendering our lawmaking ability to a higher power.
About a year from now, the wife of an ex-president is elected. She speeds up the process by which the US gives voluntary control to the UN in foreign policy issues. It soon follows that domestic issues can better be decided by a world audience.

If this scenario scares you as much as it does me, I would recommend Foreign and Domestic, Campaign II: Battle for the Middle States. Written by a friend of mine, it paints a world where the US has been invaded by the UN, with the complicity of the President. As much as I would like to believe this to be total fiction, the signs of slow descent into the grip of the 'one world community' are all around us. The fact that most of the action takes place in Minnesota is just a bonus.
