The New World Order - or "Globalism", as it is called - is on the move on many fronts, from the World Trade Organization to various US agencies, which quietly try to secure their turf and reinterpret their roles in society, always to the detriment of the nation states.
As if by magic, only Israel can flaunt its "independent state status" - and get away with illegally expelling Palestinians from their own land, imprisoning and torturing Palestinians, shooting women and children by using silencer-equipped assassination squads and brazenly defying dozens of UN resolutions.
Israel did not sign the ICC treaty and, you can bet, will ignore it and continue to do as it pleases.
What, ask the innocent, could possibly have been the motivation of former US President Clinton to give his consent in the dying days of his administration? Do the Globalists not trust the young President Bush to do their bidding? It was Bush Jr's father who proclaimed the "New World Order" when he launched the war against Iraq.
How many of us feel that a new wind is blowing?
Here is a provocative summary of quotes - and a call to sign a petition to prevent the establishment of a World Court. Let's ask President Bush to rescind the signature of the United States of America to the International Criminal Court treaty that former President Clinton authorized on December 31, 2000.

Dear friend of liberty,
The gavel hits. Its piercing crack commands the room. History is made.
The International Criminal Court (ICC) is now in session -- and our country will never be the same.
"In July of 1998, 120 nations met in Rome and voted to endorse an international criminal court. According to its own terms, when the treaty is ratified by 60 nations, it will be capable of exerting universal jurisdiction over every human being on the planet. This type of criminal court has been on the wish list of the United Nations since 1947." -- Dr. James Hirsen, 1/5/01
"Once created, the international court will give the U.N. the mechanism it needs to enforce its global 'laws' against American citizens. All Americans concerned with our sovereignty as a nation should be very alarmed by this latest development." -- Congressman Ron Paul, 1/8/01
"In short, the treaty gives the ICC the right to try and imprison U.S. citizens, including our military and other government officers, even [if] we have refused to sign it, let alone ratify it." -- former Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger, 7/3/00
"On the International Criminal Court treaty, 'the [Defense] Department's position has been clear,' a Pentagon official said. 'We were against signing it and still are.'" -- Washington Post, 1/1/01
"Casey [Lee A. Casey, a former Justice Department official who specializes in international law] said he opposes the creation of the permanent International Criminal Court under the auspices of the United Nations because he believes its powers are too extensive, and could subject American citizens to trial without allowing them the rights and protections they are guaranteed by the Constitution." -- Washington Post, 1/1/01
"National sovereignty, which means that Americans are answerable to no one but their own government and their own laws, should never be compromised. The creation of a permanent, international war-crimes tribunal certainly would compromise the national sovereignty of every country on Earth." -- Charley Reese, 1/11/01
The Liberty Committee is indeed very alarmed by the International Criminal Court. According to recent press reports, President Bush is alarmed also. Today, The Liberty Committee is launching a nationwide petition drive asking President Bush to rescind the signature of the United States to the International Criminal Court treaty that former President Clinton authorized on December 31, 2000.
To complete the on-line petition, go to http://www.thelibertycommittee.org. Please ask family and friends to do the same. There is a printable version of the petition that we ask you to print, copy and distribute to people who don't use the Internet. All completed and received petitions, on-line and printed, will be presented to the White House.
The International Criminal Court will consider itself to be formally and officially established after only 60 of the world's 161 countries ratify the Rome Statute of the ICC. As of today, 27 countries have ratified the treaty. The ICC needs just 33 more ratifying countries, from among the 112 which have signed but not yet ratified, to claim jurisdiction over all 161 countries and their citizens.
"It is my fervent hope that ...a large majority of United Nations Member States will have signed and ratified [the ICC treaty], so that the Court will have unquestioned authority and the widest possible jurisdiction." -- U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, 7/18/98
"Only hours before the Dec. 31  deadline, Bill Clinton gave the United Nations its most significant victory so far in its relentless quest for global governance: the International Criminal Court." -- Henry Lamb, 1/3/01
Supporters of the ICC have worked for years to establish this new world court. It is now time for us to do our work. Please sign our petition and ask others to do the same.
