Ohio State Rep. Tavia Galonski is vowing to refer President Trump to the International Criminal Court for “crimes against humanity.” 

Trump’s comments on hydroxychloroquine, a generic malaria drug, sparked Galonski’s ire. The president has repeatedly said hydroxychloroquine shows promise in treating COVID-19. 


Its overall effectiveness remains a matter of debate within the infectious disease community.

Per Fox News:

“I can’t take it anymore. I’ve been to The Hague. I’m making a referral for crimes against humanity tomorrow,” Galonski said. “Today’s press conference was the last straw. I know the need for a prosecution referral when I see one.”

The Hague is the site of the International Criminal Court (ICC), which boasts 123 state parties. The United States is not one of them. Only member states or non-members who accept the ICC’s jurisdiction can make referrals. Alternatively, the United Nations Security Council can also refer a matter for investigation.

“Crimes against humanity” is a category of offense that the ICC handles. The court provides a list of crimes that fall under this, including murder, extermination, enslavement, torture, and “other inhumane acts of a similar character intentionally causing great suffering or serious bodily or mental injury.”

Fox News asked Rep. Galonski if there is a specific crime she is accusing Trump of committing, and how she plans on pursuing charges given the United States’ non-member status. She did not immediately respond.

The attorney is a communist determined that he will win in taking down Trump over Nance the Ripper Pelosi and Sabotage Schumer who cannot even with their accomplices Drs. Fauci and Birx and the Communist Media all against him.
Remsdivir is now out and is another cure for the Parent Disease COVID-19 and that Parent’s latest baby, Wuhan China Virus, and the other cure Hydroxychloroquine Pak WORKS – why else would the communists in the hospitals now be listing any death as due to COVID-19 to ‘up’ the numbers against Trump, eh????
Will be a pleasure watching Sekulow (who is a master litigant at The Hague) and Trump’s other attorneys rip the latest communist attempt, literally in Trump’s life, Galonski.
With all the Galonski-types in the guises of DiBlasio and Newsom and Cuomo, etc. it’s a wonder that Barr hasn’t been making one arrest after another for falsification and other frauds.
An investigation into this latest Galonski is going to reveal many interesting things not good for Galonski but there’s plenty of room at Gitmo for him to join the others, like Insider Traders Diane Feinstein and Greaser Nance the Ripper Pelosi and ‘Resist Trump’ Leader Schumer (which Resistant means Sabotage) and all the Democrats in the House who greased the Stimulus with 25,000,000 dollars for themselves and their staff (what for? and why exclude the Senate ‘Democrats?’)

Tavia Galonski is a black woman, not a “he”. She sure isn’t a compliment to her race.

This clown is fascinated by the sound of her own voice. She must be an embarrassment to her family. Talk about a looser. If her IQ was one point lower you would have to water her to sustain life. When you see the likes of a clown like this it begs for one to reconsider allowing abortions. She should drain all the money her family has and send her to the Hague on a one way ticket.

You are throwing out statements with no basis – Communist? Look it up, do some research and studying into different types of governments, and you will see that your usage is inaccurate. Just because someone is critical of trump doesn’t make them a Communist. In fact, in a Communist regime, free speech in the form of criticism of the regime or politicla officials is not allowed. However, this is one of our greatest freedoms, and a big part of what the United States of America stands for.

Are you completely oblivious to the fact that trump has frequently violated his oath of office, violated the Constitution, and violated US laws? Those whom you criticize for being “against him” are well within their rights to criticize his frequent violations of his Oath of Office, the Constitution, and federal laws, AND the many instances of his incompetence, lack of integrity, bigotry, ignorance, lying, and Narcissism. None of those you list has committed any Constitutional Violations nor broken laws.

trump has committed Crimes against Humanity in his treatment of Asylum seekers? OUR laws as well as International Law were developed along with the Global Compact on Refugees, part of the Geneva Convention, which we and 180 other countries helped develop and to which we are legally bound – yet his deplorable treatment of these people goes against all of that. In addition, his administration’s assumption that brown-skinned Spanish-speaking people in the South-Western US are there without authorization violates the 14th amendment “nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” and again, his oath of office, as they have been denied Liberty without due process of law, and as such, have been denied equal protection of the laws.

Ms. Galonski is obviously a woman, as evidenced by a glance at her photograph in her tweet, above, and with a basic knowledge of names and vowel endings – a first name ending in “a” is female, while one ending in “o” is traditionally male.

You, sir, are so far off base that I hesitate to waste my time responding to you, but I simply cannot ignore your post. Your attempt to apply the 14th Amendment to Illegal Aliens attempting to sneak across the border is typical of a Democrat trying to throw smoke screens when they are desperate to slander our President. If these Illegal Aliens want “equal protection under the law” they should follow the law to become a citizen of our country. Otherwise they have NO RIGHTS. I had to laugh when I read your ridiculous accusations against Pres. Trump by claiming his: “frequent violations of his Oath of Office, the Constitution, and federal laws, AND the many instances of his incompetence, lack of integrity, bigotry, ignorance, lying, and Narcissism.” For a moment I thought you were talking about the previous president, obama. Your arrogance is amazing when you try to correct the commentor prior to you on the basic knowledge of names and vowel endings – a first name ending in “a” is female, while one ending in “o” is traditionally male. A typical democrat!

Shannon Rutledge – We have a female friend who goes by Coco (for Carol), other names include Marlo, Margo, Meadow, Willow, Margot, Jo, Flo, Ava. As for boy names there is Joshua, Misha, Isaiah, Noah, Asa, Shea, Elia, Sasha, OSAMA (ironically), Mica. There are many variations as many parents are trying to choose unique names. There is no “set” gender names anymore. Some names are gender specific but sound the same as the opposite gender with a slight spelling difference. Some names are unisex. Dems can’t color outside of the box. They have no imagination and are following their socialist education. How can they see anything other than what they were “taught”/indoctrinated/brainwashed?

JP: Those caravans of thousands being encouraged to leave their homes and countries to go to the U.S. by organized groups who are making money off of getting these people who become illegal criminals the second they cross our borders into the U..S. are not asylum seekers. Asylum seekers are required to seek asylum in the first country they come to and those who just want generally to come to the U.S. to go to their nearest U.S. embassy. These organized caravans go through many countries to violate our borders. They are breaking the very global laws you post about along with U.S. laws. Too bad you don’t give examples of President Trump’s criminal activity because I know of plenty of criminal and sexual activities of democrats that everybody can post about.

I’m tiring of Morons throwing out CLAIMS of telling 10,000 lies, violating his Oath of Office and on and on while NEVER citing a single actual FACT. comments like this one fall into the category of OPINIONS–and like a$$holes Everyone has one! Dissent is Demanded by our Constitutional REPUBLIC but it also carries some degree of responsibility to attempt to be accurate. Who do you assume to be CNN or MSNBC ?

You are spot on. Pretty soon, if they don’t like how Trump looks at them, they will find more bullshit to sue or criticize him for.

And every medical doctor around the world, who have administered it, are receiving positive results in treating it. It is not a cure all, but obviously helps and improves health for most diagnosed with Coronavirus.

If I were Trump, I would refuse any questions from Acosta or any other reporters who can’t or won’t try to embarrass Trump. If they don’t behave, let them sit on their hands and keep their mouths shut.

Criticism is justified when he frequently violates his Oath of Offfice and the Constitution, as well a various Federal Laws, and is also justified given his ignorance, incompetence, lack of integrity, dishonesty, bigotry, Narcissism, and basic inability to work with others – i.e. agencies such as the CDC, FBI, DOD, etc. Criticism is also absolutely allowed and in fact commendable, in the context of our First Amendment, one of our greatest and most cherished freedoms.

Your assertion that “EVERY medical doctor around the world, who have [SIC] administered it are [SIC] receiving positive results” seems a bit overstated. Your sources please? Have you collected or are you privy to data about EVERY administration of this drug? To those of us lacking this expertise, whether it “obviously” “helps and improves health for most diagnosed with Coronavirus” is not as clear is it apparently is to you.

Trump has come out and said that it IS NIT their criticism that he is against! He has been used to that all his life because he is a millionaire! It is the fake news and spreading about falsehoods that’s dislikes! What part of the Constitution President Trump violate? Go ahead, I will wait!!! If he had, the Democrats would not have had to make up lies and use gossip to impeach him! They would have had a legitimate complaint!
