Lacking some info, it seems like Interpol can do anything they want?

I know, it’s a holder thread until updates are put here — or not.

If I see anything further I’ll post it.

It means that Euro police have the authority to investigate and arrest American citizens. On American soil.

Watch for them to arrest Bush for war crimes.

You didn’t really think that Obama was in Copenhagen just for a climate pact, did you?

Pretty sure people will not tolerate euro-cops arresting US citizens. We are armed, we don’t recognize them as law officers.

Sorry, that’s the original Act. The relevant sections still remain and are all tax and property confiscation related. I can’t say I disagree with this particular action at first glance... :)

And what are you going to do about it?

They are passing a reparations bill masked as something as for $3.5 trillion!!! As we speak!!!!!

There is nothing anyone can do. Americans gave these traitors a firm majority and they are out to destroy America.

I want to spit on any Democrat that I see.

no, he wants them exempt from all taxes and searches. He’s giving immunity to a foreign police force. I should read slower after all this snow shoveling...

stepping back in time to June 16, 1983...

Note: The following text is a quote:

http://www.reagan.utexas.edu/archives/speeches/1983/61683f.htm

Executive Order 12425 — International Criminal Police Organizations
June 16, 1983

By virtue of the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and statutes of the United States, including Section 1 of the International Organizations Immunities Act (59 Stat. 669, 22 U.S.C. 288), it is hereby ordered that the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL), in which the United States participates pursuant to 22 U.S.C. 263a, is hereby designated as a public international organization entitled to enjoy the privileges, exemptions and immunities conferred by the International Organizations Immunities Act; except those provided by Section 2(c), the portions of Section 2(d) and Section 3 relating to customs duties and federal internal-revenue importation taxes, Section 4, Section 5, and Section 6 of that Act. This designation is not intended to abridge in any respect the privileges, exemptions or immunities which such organization may have acquired or may acquire by international agreement or by Congressional action.

"It means that Euro police have the authority to investigate and arrest American citizens. On American soil."

A President cannot confer such authority by an Executive order. In fact, when the military criminal investigative authorities were created back in the 80s, there had to be legislation passed before even Federal agents had the authority to effect arrest.

Some EO have the full force of law, others do not - those are just administrative orders issued to the executive branch. For a EO to have full force of law, the Congress must pass legislation that allows a President to exercise such authority.

While I'm interested to read the rest of this order, I'm much more inclined to believe it either expands or limits US oversight into the international organizations themselves, while they operate on or are domiciled on US soil. But, arrest on American soil - even of non-Americans by foreign authorities, isn't something that this President or any President can approve.

Be careful. Our thin-skilled President (and attorney) would consider that treason!

Its all part of 1) submitting USA to a global government and 2) redistributing most of our wealth to the rest of the world. Except for Obama, Clintons, Corzine, Kerry, Pelosi, etc wealth. They get to keep theirs, but the rest of us will have to suffer enormous hardship.

I’m beginning to be concerned whether or not America can withstand such an assault from the left.

And .. with the news that a former member of Mossad (who warned about the London bombings) now believes there is a major plot upon America (5-8 locations at once); that info does not make me feel any safer.

I very strongly believe this admin is ready and prepared (at the first sign of any attack) to declare martial law and stop all elections. Zero wants to be king for life.

Interpol, interschmoll; what's the difference? They all make the same pathetic squealing sound when you handcuff 'em in back with nylon cable ties and throw 'em out the back of the van going 70.

Besides, who among us couldn't use the practice?

He's deleting the part in red:
Executive Order 12425 of June 16, 1983

International Criminal Police Organizations

By virtue of the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and statutes of the United States, including Section 1 of the International Organizations Immunities Act (59 Stat. 669, 22 U.S.C. 288), it is hereby ordered that the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL), in which the United States participates pursuant to 22 U.S.C. 263a, is hereby designated as a public international organization entitled to enjoy the privileges, exemptions and immunities conferred by the International Organizations Immunities Act; except those provided by Section 2(c), the portions of Section 2(d) and Section 3 relating to customs duties and federal internal-revenue importation taxes, Section 4, Section 5, and Section 6 of that Act. This designation is not intended to abridge in any respect the privileges, exemptions or immunities which such organization may have acquired or may acquire by international agreement or by Congressional action.

By this EO, he is conferring upon INTERPOL diplomatic immunity, exemption from being subject to search and seizure by law enforcement, exemption from US taxes, etc.

Here's the text of 2(c), which this EO now has applying to INTERPOL:
(c) 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
An INTERPOL branch in the US now cannot be searched, it's files are not subject to legal subpoena nor discovery. If any branch of government wants to keep documents out of the hands of the court system, just hand them over to INTERPOL until the smoke clears.

INTERPOL will now be able to maintain files on US citizens, and will be immune from FOIA requests.

I'd like to show 'em a couple tricks I learned in '66 in the A Shau Valley. I know more ways to make 'em scream than they knew they could hurt.

The perfect sortie is when they never see it coming, never know what hit 'em, and never see the evac; like they got hit by a ghost. A real hard, snake eating ghost.

Ah, the good old days... I never thought we'd need to revive the stealth tactics back here in the world. Hmmmm... now where did I put that ghillie...?
