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.

So we have a foriegn Secret Police operating in America.
Unacceptable. Think about what this means...
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.
Surrendering US Sovereignty is an ACT OF TREASON!
So this will be Mr. Obama’s KGB/NKVD/Gestapo, eh? Well, unlike the Russian, German and occupied peoples, we’re VERY well armed.
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
Frenchy gots ‘immunity’ Not from a 1911 45ACP JHP......For those with more ‘sporting’ tastes, the venerable SS109, or for the daring and ‘stand offish’ the black tip ‘06!!!!
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.
My three huge guard dogs can’t read Executive Orders...oh well...
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.
But you’ll have to worry about your dogs getting a disease from biting the bastard.
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.
