6-14-17: Human Rights take a Backseat in UK

QUESTION #3: Recently, the UK Prime Minister, Teresa May, made a startling statement about human rights, saying that, in effect, if human rights get in the way of certain government agendas, then Parliament will just have to change the laws. Can you confirm these elements and identify the statement, where it was made, when, and why it’s so enormously frightening?

Answer:

David New:

“The Prime Minister, Theresa May, made this statement last week and, of course, the upcoming election was right around the corner, which now has occurred, but also there was two horrible terrorist events, one in Manchester and the other one. She, apparently, has pushed the panic button or gotten very frightened and she said some things that no American politician, to my knowledge has ever said, but there’s a reason why she can say it in the UK and why no American politician will dare to say it in the United States, at least so far.

Here’s what she said concerning the terrorist, “And I mean doing more to restrict the freedom and movements of terrorist suspects when we have enough evidence to know that they are a threat, but not enough evidence to prosecute them in full in court.” Here’s the key phrase and this is by the BBC, And if our human rights laws get in the way of doing it, we will change the law so we can do it.” No American politician would ever say that because of this statement written by Thomas Jefferson, but it can be said in the United Kingdom for a different reason. Look what it says, “Mr. Jefferson, we hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equate, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, that to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men.”

Now, notice carefully what that paragraph does. It gives you the chain of authority. It goes from God, the creator, to people, then to the government. The government gets its power from the people, and the people get their power to create government from God, so it goes God, people, government. In the UK, it’s not like that. Here’s the chain of authority in the UK. It goes from God to the monarch, then to the people and, in this instance, the people are subjects. In the US, it goes God, people, government. In England, it goes God, monarch, then to the people, which means, since the monarchy exists in England, the monarchy, the Queen, ostensibly, can change human rights because she gets her power directly from God.”

The largest landowner in the world, ladies and gentlemen, the largest, numero uno, is the Queen of England. She owns all the land in Great Britain. She owns all the land in Canada, and all the other places where her rule is still legally recognized. Now, of course, she owns all this land in paper only, but she is, legally, the largest landholder in the world because she gets her authority from God directly and her people are her subjects. This is the difference between the United States and the UK, the source of authority is very, very different and it’s terrible. This is where you see dictatorships and people forming right here where they panic like this.
