Hold President Trump Accountable Before UN General Assembly


President Nicolas Maduro of Venezuela

There is no such thing as “American Exceptionalism”! And therefore, the President and Government of the United States of America (USA) are just as subject to the rules of International Law as are the President and Government of any other country.

Thus, when– on Friday the 11th of August 2017 — President Donald Trump of the USA threatened a unilateral military strike against the sovereign and independent Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela he was breaching a rule of International Law that is so fundamental that it is enshrined in Article 2 of the United Nations (UN) Charter.

Article 2 (4) of the UN Charter stipulates that “all Members (of the UN) shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any State, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations.”

But this was not the first or only time that President Trump and his Administration had committed a flagrant breach of the said Article 2 (4) of the UN Charter !

Indeed, ever since taking up the office of President of the USA in January of 2017, Mr. Trump has attacked the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela on no less than four occasions by issuing Executive Orders and inflicting punitive and damaging sanctions against the Government and people of that sovereign, politically independent nation.

President Trump also went on the public record on Tuesday the 8th of August 2017 threatening the Government and people of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea (North Korea) with “fire and fury like the world has never seen” if — according to him — the Government of North Korea makes “any more threats to the United States”. This –it is clear — is a threat of a nuclear conflagration that will be much more horrific than the “atomic” decimation that the USA inflicted on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 !

And, as if to further emphasize his utter contempt for the precepts of International Law, Mr. Trump used the podium of the General Assembly of the UN on Tuesday the 19th of September 2017 to issue a further threat to “totally destroy North Korea”, and to publicly parade his arrogant determination to defy the many U N resolutions that have denounced the USA’s illegal and genocidal blockade of the Republic of Cuba and demanded its termination.

In light of the fact that the USA has proven itself to be, perhaps, the most aggressive and warlike nation in the history of the World — with a record of having initiated or participated in well in excess of two hundred major military assaults or wars against other sovereign, independent countries during the 241 years of its existence as an independent state–the international community of nations would be well advised to take President Trump’s illegal threats and attacks very seriously.

It is against this background therefore that we, the Members of the Caribbean Chapter of the International Network In Defense of Humanity, would like to remind all member states of the United Nations of their Constitutional power to bring the issue of President Trump and his flagrant and dangerous breaches of International Law before the UN General Assembly for collective discussion and for the prescribing of an appropriate response by the World community.

Article 11 (2) of the UN Charter establishes that “the General Assembly (of the UN) may discuss any questions relating to the maintenance of international peace and security brought before it by any Member of the United Nations…..and……may make recommendations with regard to any such questions to the State or States concerned or to the Security Council or to both….”

Furthermore, Article 20 of the Charter provides that “special sessions (of the General Assembly) shall be convoked by the Secretary-General at the request of……. a majority of the Members of the United Nations.”

In light of the foregoing, we — the Members of the Caribbean Chapter of the International Network In Defense of Humanity now hereby:-

(1) CALL upon the responsible and peace-loving Member States of the United Nations to join together in a collective effort to bring the issue of President Trump and his flagrant breaches of Article 2 of the UN Charter before the General Assembly of the United Nations ; and

(2) REQUEST that all responsible and peace-loving members of the human family support this CALL by:-

(a) attaching their signature, name and address to this CALL ; and

(b) forwarding this CALL to the Head of Government and Minister of Foreign Affairs of their country either via e-mail or by printing and sending a hard copy.

  1. There was a time when Republican politicians used to justify their vote suppression methods against Blacks by claiming Blacks were guilty of voter fraud, now according to Trump vote fraud is so endemic that whites must be guilty of it too ( Republicans are cringing) but Trump is doing Blacks a favour, because of this “fraud” investigation Republicans can’t use that canard about Blacks anymore. Meanwhile the Republican House and Governors and Republican Atty Generals in those States that Trump won are saying vote fraud is a figment of Trumps Imagination but he is the President and gifted with certain Constitutional powers to do as he wishes.

    Truth is Trump can’t stand to lose and losing the popular vote annoys him no end, we also remember that he dispatched screaming Spicer to claim that the audience that watched the Inauguration was the largest audience known to mankind or something of the sort. For months after his win visitors to the Oval office were shown a map of those States he won “bigly”, hey Trump’s man just lost the Republican primary in Alabama but Trump will be just as comfortable with the winner who is an original and unapologetic “birther”.
    When the phony fraud commission delivers its report I hope he sets up another to find Obama’s birth certificate as he promised to do when he was ordinary citizen “New York Con” Trump.

    I can’t wait

  2. The majority of Trump supporters believe that Obama is foreign born and that he is a Muslim. These same people don’t believe in Global warming and believe that the moon landing is fake and that it is made of Green cheese.

  3. David, but surely you “jest” when you ask: “How is the media to blame for Trump’s lukewarm response to the devastation in Puerto Rico for example.

    The media is to be BLAMED for all Trump woes. Believe me!😂

    They are the enemy of the people who are intent on destabilizing this president simply by going after potentially scandalous stories about him, his family and admin.

    The fact that many in this same media regime destabilized and were an enemy to Nixon and before him the Kennedy offers no reason and reality.

    The Democrat candidate Gary Hart was poltically destroyed by the snooping media…Dem governors like Blogovic and Spitzer were too. Not to mention the Repub Gov in Virginia, McDonnell and the Repub Senate Pres of the NY state assembly who were all brought low on corruption charges due also to jounalists seeking ‘truth’ and making a name for themselves.

    Trump has turned all that on its head of course and has set up the media as lying, corrupt purveyors of false data to ensure that valid and correct stories are dismissed.

    Pres Obama made a callous political statement re retaining the doctor of your choice under the ACA. That was false. He did not make it a habit to be a political fabulist but he was villied as this heinous liar.

    Donald Trump has told and directed to be told blatant lie after blatant lie and the same folks support him completely and say it’s inappropriate to call his statements, lies.

    Until the day Trump leaves office via a Mueller indictment or the ballot process he can do whatever he wants to simply because he has primed the pump … since being elected he has figuratively shot someone on Fifth Ave. .. And as he said, his supporters still defend him completely.

    Amazing that a media creature who adores his ratings can continue to bewitch us with this sad nonsense about fake news.

    Karma what.

    Killed by addiction to narcotic substances, just like Trump’s brother Freddy. And Freddy was an airline pilot too, scarry.

  5. @GP…

    You do understand the dictum ‘res ipsa loquitor’ yes?

    Just one look at the stated website of the videos that you reference demonstrates that the credibility of the material is in question.

    I understand that you are having a riot of fun, but really…

  6. @Georgie Porgie September 25, 2017 at 6:54 PM “ALL THE ANTI TRUMPERS ARE ANTI- GOD

    I am not sure if I get it.

    So Hitler was a power that be that was ordained by God too?

    And the Allies that took him down, they were resisting God?

    Do I understand you correctly?

    Although I respect GP’s intellectual capacity, it appears that he is off on a loop here a bit.

    Probably missing the good old gold and instead drinking some horrid Louisiana moonshine.

    That would explain the loss of logic and forgetting the first school rule.


  8. The Right Wing worried about Manafort? They should be he will sing like a canary to avoid being a guest at Club Fed. Manafort probably knows why Trump is silent on Putin, here’s an educated guess: “Golden Showers”.

  9. @John September 26, 2017 at 12:16 AM “The reason everybody who supports Trump is labeled a white supremacist or racist is because the opposition cannot say what it is they are against and that is Christianity…Make no mistake, the attack is on Christianity.”

    Do you have a persecution complex John?

    If so please take your prescribed medicine.

    McCain graduated 894th in his class of 899 students from the Naval Academy. He was known for being wild and it usually revolved around women. He was a member of a group of students who called themselves “The Bad Bunch”. He married Carol Shepp who was a successful swimsuit model. She had been married to one of his classmates and had two children from her first marriage. She and McCain became parents for a daughter one year later.”

    Thanks for the soap opera. it is not often that we get a soap opera on BU. But you did not tell me what became of Carol Shepp McCain’s first husband? Was he cool with the divorce and thing? Did he lose day to day access to his children? Was he cool with that?

  11. Recently D Trump Jr. gave up his Secret Service protection indicating that he wanted privacy. NYT has a story of one of the things he has been up to since foregoing SS protection. Turns out he has been big game hunting in Canada, now he wouldn’t want SS agents to be with him on those kind of trips, imagine the optics when the news became public, taxpayers paying for protection for the President’s son as he hunts Moose in Canada. Is Africa next on his agenda? Cecil the lion is already dead but there must be another Cecil somewhere in “Nambia”.

    RE Also, top it off with the likelihood that he is trying to yank some chains here to enjoy the reaction.

  13. President Trump’s job approval rating rises to 45% (vs. 54% of Americans who disapprove).

    Winning the war of words against the NFL.
