I have reviewed the case. If the SOB wanted to avoid the death penalty, he shouldn’t have killed someone in Texas. Next.
P.S. - Mr. Medellin, the Mexican Consulate called and left a message: “You’re gonna fry.”
Condolences to the families and friends of Jennifer Ertman and Elizabeth Pena.
>>>In several speeches he gave across the country, former US Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton revealed that President George W. Bush and his administration are buckling under pressure from this nation’s Internationalists in the current controversy over Mexico and the International Court of Justice.<<<
“[President George Bush’s position is] a bad mistake, but one of many mistakes, I’m sad to say, the administration has made recently,” Bolton told syndicated radio talk show host Laura Ingraham.
That is the quote to support ‘several speeches’?
It looks out of context too to support ‘buckling’.
In my opinion, the administration on many key issues that involve the deliberate erosion of American sovereignty, instead of buckling, have just laid down in the middle of the road.
I’m saying the quote used to support the premise of the opening paragraph doesn’t support the opinion.
I personally believe the mexican elite could care less about the death penalty. all the poverty is sent to the USA.
Not many rich people being executed these days, or for that matter, never have.
Mexico is just a big joke!
The mexican elite thinks this makes them look good in the eyes of the international community.
A particularly nasty hit piece on the President by a Paulinista
>>>>I personally believe the mexican elite could care less about the death penalty. all the poverty is sent to the USA.
I think the politicians in Mexico City like the open border because it is a pressure release valve for them. If they don’t take care of their people if they don’t provide economic opportunity, and they don’t, than instead of their voters throwing them out of office they want people to vote with their feet and just leave the country. And that is what they do. They vote with their feet and leave the country and come to the United States.

In principle, allowing someone accused of a crime to contact their home country consulate for assistance is very important.
How many times have Americans been accused of crimes while abroad and were released when the US Consulate would become involved? Numerous.
Extending that right to non-citizens is OK with me.
However, in this case, the defense never requested such assistance. The International Court is making a straw argument.
In other words, fry him.
In the immortal words of Ron White "Most states are abolishing the death penalty. Mine is putting in an express lane. In Texas, if you kill somebody, we kill you back"
“President George W. Bush and his administration are buckling under pressure from this nation’s Internationalists”
LOL! Who’s kidding who here?
This totally sucks, but I’m glad Bolton is speaking out.
I love Ron White........
