Perhaps some in U.S. would be interested in briliant arguments president Vaclav Klaus used yesterday against Lisbon Treaty (the clone of failed euroconstitution) before Czech Constitutional Court.
The whole speech translated to English HERE
Czech Republic and Ireland are only countries which so far didn’t pass the Lisbon Treaty – the treaty which constitutes the European police superstate.
The Ireland was only country where the referendum was held and the Treaty was refused there in June. But the EU ignores the result and wants Ireland to repeat the vote.
In the Czech Republic there is strong oppossition against the Treaty in The Senate – which led to the decision not to ratify it and to send the Treaty to the Constitutional Court – to decide if the Treaty is compliant with the Czech Constitution – namely with the principle of sovereignity of the people and with the principles of the democratic and legally consistent state.
(ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW)
Conservative Czech president Vaclav Klaus (who is by now a friend for example with Ron Paul whom he invited for his rare travel to Prague already two years ago – to have a outstanding speech about Ludwig von Mises economy there) is only top politician in Europe, who is consistently campaigning against the Lisbon Treaty and against the formation of the European superstate.
The battle against the Lisbon Treaty culminates now before Czech Constitutional court, where president Klaus have had a principial speech yesterday – where he eloquently used the own arguments used to defend the Treaty by the Czech Government – he used it paradoxicly and very logically against the Treaty. Also the representatives of the Czech Senate pleaded the arguments agaist the Treaty before the court. So it becomes the suit between Senate and President on the side against the Treaty and the Government and House of Commons defending it.
Almost all expected the Court would decide the case yesterday. But the speech of the President Klaus was so eloquent and full of heavy-duty arguments against the Treaty, that the Government representative (former Czech ambassador to USA Alexander Vondra – known for his campaigning for the U.S. military base in the Czech Rep.) was unable to even discuss it. So the Chair of the court recessed the disputation to be continued today.
