Who Will be Chosen for the International Supreme Court?

When the constitution for the international government is written and signed, it will be decided then how the international government will function, such as who is eligible for office, term of office, rights, duties and privileges, and so on, including Supreme Court justices.

The basis for the international government is the U.S. Constitution, and so all eyes are on the United States to see how it functions, and also watching to see what is working and what is not working. The focus now is on the confirmation process for the vacant US Supreme Court seat, and people are wondering how to avoid the same crisis, but multiplied many times over, when confirming an international Supreme Court justice. 

Supreme Court justices in the United States have lifetime terms. They are promoted to the position from existing judges, nominated by the president, and confirmed by the Senate, which represents the rights of the people. The Supreme Court justices decide whether the laws that come before them are constitutional, and their interpretations of the law sway the legal system for decades to come, and so they have a profound effect on the lives of the people. Their decisions can also be overturned if proven that their justification is faulty. The constitution can be amended, but it takes a lengthy process to do so. The Constitution evolves.  

For many years, U.S. Supreme Court justices were confirmed by a vast majority of the Senate. The number of required votes to confirm a nominee was set high to ensure that the nominee would suit both parties. Now, with a majority of Republicans in both Houses and a Republican president, and the number of  required votes has been lowered to a simple majority, and nominees that would not have been confirmed in the past are being confirmed.

We are all starting to see what works and what doesn't work. How can we do it better?

Our organization is calling for an Article V  amendment convention to create the additional layer of government over what already exists, and that requires 2/3 of the States to pass resolutions to petition the US Congress to  hold the convention, and then 3/4 of the States must ratify the amendment. For a lifetime appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court, a simple majority of the Senate is not sufficient. A minimum of a 2/3 majority of senators should be required--3/4 majority is best. 

Who can pass such a test? If the world leaders today were each able to nominate a candidate to the international Supreme Court, who would be nominated? Who would be confirmed?

Are China and Russia Together the Next Superpower?

Form email to Senator Ron Wyden regarding the rise of China and Russia:

My organization is working to create an international government based on the US Constitution and the cooperation of nature.

This morning, there is an article on NBC news, called "' Russia, China embrace uneasily, aim for 'desirable world order' Moscow-Beijing relations are "showing dynamic growth." Their idea of cooperation is demonstrating that Asia is the next superpower. Last week, Tony Blair was interviewed, and said he hoped the United States and Europe could unite to create a solid resistance, so he must believe the United States cannot be trusted to help to resist the rise of Russia and China domination.

China and Russia are basing their rise in power on power games they developed over the years, and the collapse of the US power base as the result of the preemptive strike on Iraq is allowing them the opportunity to take their plans to the next level.

The opportunities are ending for the United States to exercise our power. Our diplomats go into other nations and are scorned. Bush and Clinton had shoes thrown at them, and were left out of meetings at summits. To prevent the US from becoming a third world nation we must address where true power comes from. This fall in power based on power grabs is no different than someone who relies on alcohol to compensate for  lack of compassion, and begins to fall into the abyss. It is a similar process to rise out of the abyss, but the longer we wait, the harder it will be.

The US now has three choices. We can continue on as is. Trump is playing the same series of power games Bush played and so we should hit the edge of the abyss soon. Or, Trump can keep pushing his failed policy of maximum pressure, and wage war on China and Russia, and we will be at war with the rest of the world. Both are existential threats and lead to the US becoming a failed state. Or, we can do what is in everyone's best interest, and join the growing number of nations who see the plan for the international government as the solution to this crisis.

I have been offering the US government through you, our elected officials, information that will allow the United States to function on a higher level. What you have done with it has been up to you. I have been teaching the rest of the world through our blogs, and now I must step back and allow you to figure out for yourself whether our government will listen to the advice.

My perspective now is to consider the United States to be equal to all the other nations. The first government  proposal is the Exit Strategy for Iraq, but it's contingency is that the United States agree to amend our Constitution to create the additional layer of government--through an Article V amendment convention. Congress has proven it cannot solve these problems so it must turn responsibility over to someone who can--the People and the States.

Alternate Facts = Genocide

Do you remember Kellyanne Conway talking about Alternate Facts? I just finished reading an article on the Vox website about the two Russians who are being accused of the Skripal poisoning, and how their version of the truth—their alternate facts--makes no sense. But, it does make sense. This is how genocides devolve.

Genocides are based on weaving an illusion, and, as I have said many times, when the president of the United States talks about fake news and alternate facts, you can bet a genocide is devolving. The alternate facts allow those who are weaving an illusion to draw in more people and to reinforce the lies. But, once the grand lie has been told, the truth doesn’t overcome the lie. It just reaches the point where no one knows who to trust.

You can trust Universal Law. That is the only thing anyone can trust at this time. To end the illusion, I have worked to introduce it into the US legal system as a tenet of our legal system. The legal system of the proposed international government will be based on Universal Law. So, whoever is weaving an illusion is demonstrating that they are perpetrating a genocide, and all we  have to do is to recognize the power games when we see them.

Genocides are based on a sense of judgment. People who play the game have an issue related to capacity—lack of capacity, and so they Envy other’s capacity. This leads to a sense of judgment. Under Universal law, they will be judged.

My proposal and planning steps for the  Exit Strategy for Iraq address how to bring both sides of “reality” back together. It brings George W. Bush and one of Saddam Hussein’s lieutenants into court. While it would seem not in the best interests of the United States to face the fact that we perpetrated an illegal war, the policy of preemption was a character defamation campaign against Saddam Hussein, and we started a global genocide.

The trust will return when nations start to function based on the principles of the cooperation of nature. Win-win agreements build trust and set the stage for future agreements.
