Until I heard Dick Morris on Hannity today, I thought that we were going to be ok on this issue because it takes 2/3rds of the Senate to ratify any treaty, and since there is no way 2/3rds of the Senate would sign on to this, we were going to be good. Well, according to Dick Morris, in this case, this is not true. According to him, because the United States is a signator of the Geneva Conventions (I think this is what he said, I was driving and a little distracted, but the rest was clear), it will become binding upon the signature of the President and will remain so until the Senate votes to renounce it along with the President and Sec. of State. This of course will not happen if we lose these elections and even in the event of a lame duck senate, they will try to push this crap through. I urge you all to share this as much as possible and pass the word. Sign the petition and state your displeasure in the body of the letter to your Reps like I did.This is nothing short of an “End Run” around the Constitution and the will of the American Citizens and cannot be allowed to succeed. These people MUST pay the political price at the polls this election cycle. NEVER LOSE SIGHT OF THE FACT , it is the Dems who are working feverishly to get your guns and turn this nation into just another socialist European nation and they must be taken out of office now!
THIS IS IMPORTANT FOR ALL WHO LOVE THIS COUNTRY AND CARE ABOUT KEEPING IT THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE BRAVE. THAT IS NO LONGER A PUNCH LINE….. STAND UP AND BE COUNTED.
CRITICAL UPDATE 071712
After doing a lot of detective work, I was able to decipher what is really going on with this issue. First, it was not the Geneva Convention that Morris cited. It was the Vienna Convention. Most of the hub-bub is about section 12 of this document which basically outlines the binding nature of the document via the signators. After finding this information I was lead to Richard Nixon who sent this to the Senate; http://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/index.php?pid=2036.
Now you will read on this document; 185 - Message to the Senate Transmitting the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations and the Optional Protocol Concerning the Compulsory Settlement of Disputes May 5, 1969. I underline the key thing here… Finding this, I went to Thomas/Library of Congress and did a search for treaty “Vienna Convention”. This is what is shown for the treaty in question;
