Wither Sovereignty?

Executive Order Amended to Immunize INTERPOL In America-Is The ICC Next?

Last Thursday, December 17, 2009, The White House released an Executive Order "Amending Executive Order 12425." It grants INTERPOL (International Criminal Police Organization) a new level of full diplomatic immunity afforded to foreign embassies and select other "International Organizations" as set forth in the United States International Organizations Immunities Act of 1945.

By removing language from President Reagan's 1983 Executive Order 12425, this international law enforcement body now operates - now operates - on American soil beyond the reach of our own top law enforcement arm, the FBI, and is immune from Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) requests.

As a result of this, the next President executes an Executive Order removing the ability for Interpol to have offices here, and gives them two weeks to leave the nation.

So this will be Mr. Obama’s KGB/NKVD/Gestapo, eh? Well, unlike the Russian, German and occupied peoples, we’re VERY well armed.

Only for natural born Americans.
Obama is for the terrorists. 110% from his FIRST moment in office and since.

The issue of who has sovereign powers is what defines a nation. There can be only one sovereign and in the territory of the US the Constitution defines it. Its head is the Chief Executive, who takes an oath to see that the laws are faithfully executed.

The present occupant of that office seems to think that foreign combatants captured while waging war against the US are persons who are entitled to protections of the Constitution. At the very same time he has allowed agents of other governments to operate on US soil?

At the very least this seems to be a violation of his oath of office. Could it be treasonous grounds for impeachment?

Of course it could. But, ultimately, impeachment is something of a popularity contest in Congress as well as a legal truth-seeking exercise. So, until there's a will, there's no way. If and when there's a will, there will be plenty of ways.

For an added and disturbing wrinkle, INTERPOL's central operations office in the United States is within our own Justice Department offices. They are American law enforcement officers working under the aegis of INTERPOL within our own Justice Department. That they now operate with full diplomatic immunity and with "inviolable archives" from within our own buildings should send red flags soaring into the clouds.

I’m with you on the .45 ACP but I think 9mm Parabellum is more traditional for that particular game.

A good hit with a 45 is better than a couple/three 9mms in my opinion. I suppose you could load up with some of those 147 grain 9mms and do some damage also, but there are more than a couple 9mm pistols that don’t recommend using them, I have a G26 that doesn’t, and a G19 and G17 that can shoot them.

There is no such thing as an act of treason if the constitution has been forfeited.

Interpol does not have any rights of enforcement, prosecution or investigation anywhere in the world. It has a tiny staff and a relatively tiny budget ($70 million). It acts strictly as an information clearing house for the member forces. Unless he is a French police officer, the head of Interpol in France does not have the power of a village constable. Interpol has no right anywhere to get involved in local matters concerning its own citizens unless it crosses any border or involves foreigners and only at the request of a government. If Interpol collects a certain number of pieces of a puzzle which seems to tie together they will give that information to the police forces of the countries involved and ask them to investigate and they will coordinate between the various police forces.

Every member country designates a central contact for Interpol. In the US it is the department of justice. The only employees it has are American civil servants and American law enforcement officers. Interpol does not own any property in the US and the only records it has are those sent by Interpol to every other police force in the world, those requested by the US from other police forces via Interpol and those collected by US law enforcement at the request of Interpol. In other words, the American Interpol is an American department of Law enforcement dealing with international crime.

It just so happens that the current head of Interpol is not only an American, but a brother at that. The last head was another brother, from South Africa but he was removed when the South African government charged him with corruption.

In other words, a US government department with US government employees dealing with crime by or against Americans has just been given complete immunity from American laws. There are some similar instances in the convoluted world of politics, both the SS and the KGB
operated with equal immunity.

Obama wants to make sure INTERPOL’s file on him is kept secret. His actions are dangerous to our sovereignty and prepares the way for the ICC.
Watch video narrated by Larry Grathwohl at www.PierreLegrand.net on 12/21/09 on what Obama, Ayers and others plan for Amerikka.

If we have come to the terrible state where we are forbidden by government to police the police, we have become slaves in our own country. We are no longer free men

Our police participate as INTERPOL, does that mean as members of INTERPOL do our federal, State and local police have diplomatic immunity as well?

That's exactly what it means. The ordinary FBI agent is subject to strict constitutional limitations in how he carries out an investigation in the United States. Citizens are empowered under the Constitution and the laws of the US to seek redress if he violates these limitations.

Once on loan to Interpol, that same FBI agent--working physically out of the same US office--has absolute immunity to investigate and collect evidence in whatever manner he chooses and the targeted citizens have NO recourse in US courts to challenge those methods or to know what information has been collected or how it was collected.

Defenders of this monstrous executive order try to minimize the threat by pointing out that Interpol would have a hard time prosecuting a suspect in the US courts if the evidence was collected in violation of the fourth amendment. Even if that is true, it highly unlikely that Interpol would seek to assist a prosecution in the US courts. This is where the International Criminal Court comes in. That court is not bound by the US Constitution. Interpol simply turns over the evidence to the ICC prosecutors. The suspect is arrested while outside the US and convicted on the basis of evidence collected within the US in violation of the fourth amendment.
