Obama Signs Away American Sovereignty to INTERPOL

Barack Obama is much, much more radical and much more dangerous to this nation than this blogger ever imagined. Under the cover of the health-care "debate" in which his leftist party loots the national treasury in perpetuity, he's ceding American sovereignty to INTERPOL, and doing it with glee as he undoes the work of Ronald Reagan:

For Immediate Release December 17, 2009

Executive Order -- Amending Executive Order 12425

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including section 1 of the International Organizations Immunities Act (22 U.S.C. 288), and in order to extend the appropriate privileges, exemptions, and immunities to the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL), it is hereby ordered that Executive Order 12425 of June 16, 1983, as amended, is further amended by deleting from the first sentence the words "except those provided by Section 2©, Section 3, Section 4, Section 5, and Section 6 of that Act" and the semicolon that immediately precedes them.


What does all of this mean?

Section 2c of the United States International Organizations Immunities Act is the crucial piece:

"Property and assets of international organizations, wherever located and by whomsoever held, shall be immune from search, unless such immunity be expressly waived, and from confiscation. The archives of international organizations shall be inviolable."

Inviolable archives means INTERPOL records are beyond US citizens' Freedom of Information Act requests and from American legal or investigative discovery ("unless such immunity be expressly waived.")
Property and assets being immune from search and confiscation means precisely that. Wherever they may be in the United States. This could conceivably include human assets - Americans arrested on our soil by INTERPOL officers.

With INTERPOL providing a significant enforcement function for the ICC, this seems like an obvious precursor to American subservience to the International Criminal Court, something the people of this nation are strongly opposed to. Furthermore, would this not be a great way for Obama to satisfy the Left, by having key political enemies, past and present (can we say Dick Cheney? Donald Rumsfeld? CIA agents?) taken away by INTERPOL, unhindered now under law as signed by Barack Obama, to be tried overseas by the ICC

It is reasons like these that President Bush refused to go along with the anti-American ICC. And it is for reason just like these that President Obama is eagerly agreeing (under cover of darkness) to go along with the ICC.

We are being undone, and with the media firmly in the president's hip pocket and refusing to squeak, there seems to be little anyone can do to stop it...

I'm not surprised at anything Obama does. Destruction of America is his goal.

You goofy right wing idiots. Life must be miserable being such frightened paranoid mice seeing bogey men behind every Democrat.

First off, you should have noticed that this "story" is being trumpeted only in the same right wing echo chamber that has spread every other manner of idiotic rumor about Obama, including his being a space alien preparing the planet for an invasion.

Secondly, apparently none of you right wing sheep bothered to go to Interpol's website to find out what they are, and aren't, and that they work through national law enforcement agencies, like the FBI and have a charter forbiding them to get involved in internal politics, etc.

But as usual, you won't let facts and details get in the way of a good race-based Obama conspiracy fantasy. You should know that normal Americans and the rest of the world laughs at your antics.

Ah, an left-wing anonymous coward...we get so many....

"Race-based"? The last refuge of a scoundrel, the cry of "racism!"; but it's all that's left (except for blind anger, hatred, and insults) once reason has abandoned your side of the argument
