Finland John Bolton US Constitution

Former Finnish PM Paavo Lipponen (Leftist) was shocked that US constitution trumps international law……..


The Finns have bent, twisted and changed its constitution to be subservient to international/EU law for decades, I’m not surprised at all that the Marxist, Paavo Lipponen, was shocked at Amb.John Bolton’s entirely correct, factual statement. 


In the case of John Bolton, I first met the new National Security Advisor a decade and a half or so back, in a roomful of European prime ministers and foreign ministers. He delivered a line that stunned the joint: “International law does not trump the US Constitution.
I was standing next to the Finnish Prime Minister, Paavo Lipponen, who had a genuinely puzzled looked on his face and eventually inquired of me: “He is making a joke, no?”


It’s why I revere that founding document. It empowers the people against tyrannical politicians, something that social democracies traditionally reject.
