The Lord giveth… and the EU Charter of Rights taketh away

“The European Union Charter of Fundamental Rights sets out in a single text, for the first time in the European Union’s history, the whole range of civil, political, economic and social rights of European citizens and all persons resident in the EU.

They are based, in particular, on the fundamental rights and freedoms recognised by the European Convention on Human Rights ECHR).”

The EU seems more like the communist fiat-governments of this world, these days. However, there are some clear differences between them, of course:

- Their official languages.
- Their official flags.
- The width of territory they've stolen from sovereign nations
- The number of freedoms they allow their people to have.
- The number of people, who live under their tyrannical-rule.
- The bad laws, which their people haven't been "officially authorized" to vote for or against:

When you read it “back to front” you get some disturbing results. Here are a few examples from the ECHR to give you the real intent from the official EU Charter of Fundamental Rights website:

[bolded text is added by the author.]

Article 2. Right to Life

a) Article 2(2) of the ECHR:
Deprivation of life shall not be regarded as inflicted in contravention of this Article when it results from the use of force which is no more than absolutely necessary:

in defence of any person from lawful violence;
in order to effect a lawful arrest or to prevent the escape of a person lawfully detained;
in action lawfully taken for the purpose of quelling a riot or insurrection.’ “
The EU says that if the state’s law enforcement officers can deprive you of your right of life, in other words murder you, while attempting to arrest you or during a riot, and legally your execution “shall not be regarded’ as breaking the law/article of the right to life. How many times do we have to be reminded that not reading slick lawyer “small print” can be perilous?

“b) Article 2 of the Protocol No 6 to the ECHR:
‘A State may make provision in its law for the death penalty in respect of acts committed in time of war or of imminent threat of war; such a penalty shall be applied only in the instances laid down in the law and in accordance with its provisions…”

That’s right the EU endorses the Death Penalty!!! You may have never heard that before when listening to the politicians or media glorifying the EU but there it is in black and white on their official website. Individuals can be given the death penalty for “acts committed” (who decides what these acts) in a time of war or of even the threat of war (war on terrorism).

As I'm reading it the EU doesn't support the death penalty, they 'make a provision for it in times of war'. Or 'immenent war', if you want to get picky.

Most of the countries in the EU allow for Death penalty in times of war. For instance France abolished the death penalty in 1981 yet in 1985 when they ratified the european convention, they kept a clause to allow it in times of war.

I think you will find most European countries reserve this right.

Special provisions that are allowed for times of war are great. Especially when the powers that be decide to declare a never ending war on a concept, such as the War on Terror. They write the laws presenting an air of last resort. They make you think that this will only be put into place in the rare event of a war. Yet, we are always at war so..... they can do it whenever they want.

The so-called, illuminati control all of these wicked unions. Of course, they'll make more bad laws. That's part of their agenda, right? Same ole' modus operandi, same ole' type of Nazi-scum ruling over us, eh?

"committed in time of war or of imminent threat of war"
can they clearly define "threat of war" ? is this refering to the military only? hm.. can a public revolt / demonstation be a threat of war" ?

They want complete control over Europeans (and the rest of the world). They're not the European union. They're the world government under a different name! The ridiculous new laws they're enforcing are made by the United Nations/Counsel of Foreign Relations, and every other organization that is part of the world government.

The World Government has many shills & fiat-governmental branches (organizations) growing throughout the world.
