With the signing of an under-publicized amendment to Executive Order 12425, Barack Obama has fundamentally altered your constitutional rights. His actions are undermining your rights to protect personal privacy from a foreign internationalist police agency named Interpol. A one-paragraph executive order may seem inconsequential to many, but this action has far-reaching implications and threatens the sovereignty of America.
Obama's secretive executive order amended an order issued by President Reagan in 1983. Reagan's order recognized Interpol as an international organization and gave it privileges and immunities commonly extended to foreign diplomats. Reagan opened the door to allow Interpol to operate in partnership with the U.S. but with significant constitutional safeguards. Specifically, Interpol's property and assets remained subject to search and seizure by American law enforcement, and its archived records remained subject to public scrutiny under provisions of the Freedom of Information Act. Interpol had to answer to the FBI and U.S. courts under Reagan's order. These safeguards were stripped away by Obama's action the week before Christmas without debate or explanation. Obama picked the holiday season to make this radical change, to minimize media coverage.

This order marks a significant change in federal policy and usurps the constitutional power of our government by yielding it to an international organization. Michael van Der Galien writes, "This foreign law-enforcement organization can operate free of an important safeguard against government and abuse. Property and assets, including the organization's records, cannot now be searched or seized. Their physical operational locations are now immune from U.S. legal and investigative authorities."
Obama has given an international organization unsupervised freedom to investigate Americans on our own soil without recourse or the supervision of our own government.
Andy McCarthy writing for the National Review asks some very significant questions: "Why would we elevate an international police force above American law? Why would we immunize an international police force from the limitations that constrain the FBI and other American law-enforcement agencies? Why is it suddenly necessary to have, within the Justice Department, a repository for stashing government files which, therefore, will be beyond the ability of Congress, American law-enforcement, the media and the American people to scrutinize?"
Interpol is the enforcement arm of the International Criminal Court, or ICC. The United States never signed onto the Rome Treaty, which created the ICC, because of the potential for abuse by foreign interests. Obama has signaled he may sign the treaty over these objections and subject Americans to prosecution overseas in the ICC. This is harmful for two reasons. First, the U.S. Constitution clearly states that it is the supreme law of our land, and allowing the ICC to supersede the U.S. Constitution violates America's sovereignty. Second, the War on Terror is unpopular with Europeans, and the ICC may attempt to prosecute heroic American soldiers with trumped-up war crimes. Obama is putting brave American men and women at grave risk.
An added wrinkle to this executive order is that Interpol's operations center for the United States is housed within our own Justice Department. Many of the agents are Americans who work under the aegis of Interpol. This order has potentially created the new civilian security force that Obama proposed during his campaign. This group of law-enforcement officials is no longer subject to the restraints enshrined in the U.S. Constitution.
The order guarantees that Interpol officers have immunity from prosecution for crimes they may commit in the United States. Ironically, some Interpol nations are attempting to try American intelligence agents for their work abroad in the War on Terror. This order shows blatant disregard for the U.S. Constitution. While Obama is extending due process rights to terrorists he is weakening those same rights for American citizens. If a citizen were to be prosecuted by Interpol, their newly granted immunity would interfere with the discovery process. Since Interpol files are immune to disclosure, a citizen could be denied his right to see the information used to prosecute him or her.
Obama's executive order has done more to weaken civil liberties than the much-maligned Patriot Act. The silence in the mainstream media on this issue should scare all freedom-loving Americans. Obama just signed away parts of our precious legal protections.

The EU Times reports Obama Orders 1 Million US Troops by Jan 30, 2010 for Outbreak of Civil War in American!
Of Executive Orders and Trojan Horses
This was just sent to me and I have just finished the first video. dated Dec. 9, 2009 Figured it was worth sending on, especially with the articles and chatter about the Obamas amendment to the Posse Comitatus Act that has been floating around the past few days.
Someone in one of my patriot groups said the other day, "I hope I'm wrong about all of this, but I would rather share the the information and be wrong or even look foolish a year from now than not and have been quietly right!!"
Around 8 minutes, the speaker (Steve Quayle) begins and says there is an event coming that will involve military action against US citizens (armed forces - responding to and acting against citizens) that will be so deep and so penetrating that the US will never be the same. He has talked with air force, law enforcement personnel, etc and it is confirmed.
The reason for this event is the economy will tank - within the 45 - 60 day mark.

Ping for a later read,
What Constitution? E V E R Y O N E including the Zero V O T E R S will suffer.
And not one freakin’ republican, CIA or FBI is speaking out? Can they not put all the links together?
If this was no big deal as Jake Tapper said,Obama would not have done it in silence.
I have a good idea why some said Bush almost killed them during his 8 years. If they felt about Bush like I feel about obama.....
If this is true, then the Alex Jones “nuts” have been confirmed (Not saying I agree with all that is Alex Jones).
Steve Quayle isn’t credible.
Steve Quayle isnt credible.
I hope so. I’m getting sick of all this conspiracy junk. I have a problem listening to it ALL, and it making me sick to my stomach.
He's a conspiracy guy. I'm not saying that Interpol hasn't been given diplomatic immunity but the whole thing about confirming some attack is BS. He does this crap all the time. Hype something up, when something bad doesn't happen, he invents a reason why it was averted then on to the next thing. It's pure garbage.
And what stinks is there’s a market for that kind of stuff these days.
Of course the reciprocity in this arrangement was that INTERPOL was to NEVER investigate Obamas past or to reveal incriminating evidence of wrongdoings, illegal campaign activities or connections to groups that are aligned against the Constitutional laws of America.
Obama to Interpol, here is your “00” License to Kill, now protect me.
It's not just "these days". I was posting on BBSs and Fidonet in the 80s, CompuServe and forums in the 90s and on...this conspiracy crap sold just as well then. I remember that Reagan was going to suspend the constitution and declare himself dictator...then Bush 41, then Clinton...on and on, it never ends. Same crap, different year, plenty of mouths agape like baby birds waiting for someone to regurgitate into them.
What color uniform do they wear .... just wondering ....
What makes you think there will be another administration?
Obama changed the Interpol EO not only to keep their info on him a secret but to accomplish his goals for complete power.
I appreciate that and was aware of it...but it still needs to be repealed immediately. It IS unconstitutional, and I don't believe presidents are allowed to circumvent the constitution by fiat, even temporarily.
If this is true—obama has clearly violated his oath (not that it measn anything to him)... but it is an impeachable offense the first time an American is arrested and not afforded his or her constitutional rights.
“a different administration can rescind that order for their administration”
The Executive order is in effect until another president rescinds it.
Also, I think Obama is planning to be “President for Life”
“the Alex Jones nuts have been confirmed”
Even a nut can be right once in awhile.
They dress as civilian's, which they are. They may look like anyone in civies. They are but international detectives. Up until now, they had little or no actual authority in the US except as go betweens with the FBI and CIA and local LEO's..
I have no idea what these changes will lead to, but I don't like it. It's a sovereignty issue.
If he tries that, how long do you think his life will be...:O)
So what you’re saying is that they can come to our home and do whatever?
I don't know what they can be limited to do now, and I think that is the issue.
The trouble with these changes as I see it, is primarily that they will now have the status of a Ambassador, where they can't be impeded or their assets seized, should we want to stop them. Embassy staff and other A'holes with this sort of protection have made a mockery of US laws many times.
It would be interesting to see what would happen should they try to arrest someone here (US) and the homeowner came out shooting ... mistakes have been made by our own LEO’s going to the wrong home as well ...
If a homeowner did what you suggest, they would not have protection unless LEO was with them in any case.
Silence from DeMint (unexpected), Silence from Joe Wilson (unexpected) and Silence from Lindsey Graham (Expected). Wonder what’s going on.
Maybe someone should send Interpol a notice that American’s are armed and do use deadly force ....unlike their European weenies ....
I dunno, but I think it may be that in order for Interpol to do what we want them to do for security of the US, that this was the price.
I don’t really know if there is any thing that can be done about executive orders....I believe (but may be wrong) that there has been no constitutional challenge to them...
This article is an adjunct to the previous ping, and also to the ping this morning by melancholy.
Bookmarking all three articles...
While freedom fighters in Iran are dieing to gain their God given rights, people in America sit and do NOTHING as our freedoms are taken away.
Oh wait, we are very angry and looking for a leader.
Too busy navel gazing and dodging Harry Reid's racist remarks right now.
You are under the impression there will be other administrations to follow.
The panel, including Krauthammer, on the Bret Bair show FOX last week discussed it and all agreed it was not a big deal to be concern about???
Clinton was also a worry and the only thing that saved him and us was the republican congress that resulted...don't know if that will happen again, but hope so.
I still have faith in the majority of the American people...
We must start screaming loudly now or it's going to be too late - He is moving fast, knowing that if elections are allowed - his agenda is in jeopardy.
