Obama Surrenders U.S. Sovereignty: His INTERPOL Executive Order
Pajamas Media ^ | Dec. 28 | Bob Owens

Posted on 12/28/2009 1:13:11 PM PST by AJKauf

At ThreatsWatch.org, Steve Schippert and Clyde Middleton have dug up the bizarre and unsettling issuance of an executive order recently signed by President Barack Obama. Executive Order — Amending Executive Order 12425, signed December 16 and released a day later, grants the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL) rights on American soil that place it beyond the reach of our own law enforcement agencies, such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Schippert and Middleton note that Obama’s order removes protections placed upon INTERPOL by President Reagan in 1983. Obama’s order gives the group the authority to avoid Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests — which means this foreign law enforcement organization can operate free of an important safeguard against governmental abuse. “Property and assets,” including the organization’s records, cannot be searched or seized. Their physical locations and records are now immune from U.S. legal or investigative authorities.

If the president of the United States has an aboveboard reason for making a foreign law enforcement agency exempt from American laws on American soil, it wasn’t shared by the White House....

Someone needs to write a book (since there are so many examples) of the unconstitutional actions taken by the Obama admin and dem congress and senate. It'll have to be a very large book and it's getting longer by the day. This is criminal behavior and looks like grounds for impeachment.

I saw this over the weekend.

The biggest concern I have seen on other forums is this;

If the outsourced mercenaries working for the state dept have immunity, will they also operate outside the US Constitution which gives the Judicial oversight of law enforcement activities?

Will INTERPol be able to arrest American citizens and hold without writ? Will there be illegal, warrant less searches and intrusions into American citizens lives?

Will the outsourced mercenaries operate from official US government lists, and will citizens disappear with no legal options?

If I read the brief right, I believe all the above will be within the powers granted by the executive order.

These guys are going to try to enter some gun-owners’ residence without a warrant and it won’t be pretty. Wonder how these pricks dress? We want to have an appropriate welcome when they show up, after all, to make them feel welcome.

There needs to be Congressional hearings on this, and pronto.

Officials need to be put under Oath, and this thing explained.

Letters from Zimbabwe-Cathy Buckle

Saturday 30th June 2007

Dear Family and Friends,
We are struck with feelings of near hysteria just coping with everyday situations almost all the time now. The past fortnight has seen a dramatic plunge in the value of our money and massive price increases of everything from food to fuel and everything in between. Top-up bills for school fees arrived barely half way into the term, medical aid costs have risen five fold and as the month end bills and service accounts come in, most people have no idea how they are going to cope over the next thirty days.

The cost of medicines are rising at least twice a week now and recently a friend buying a drug to control epilepsy paid 460 thousand dollars one day and 490 thousand dollars for the same drug, same quantity, same pharmacy on the next day. Many companies that can, have started giving their employees food supplies every month just to make sure their workers literally have enough energy to do their work. Most people in middle management and white collar jobs cannot survive more than five days of a month before their entire wage is depleted. The burden is gruelling.

Life in Zimbabwe has become unbearably tough for all but a very small elite and the government have been as good as ignoring the deteriorating economic situation for some months. This week they suddenly woke up and the Minister of Industry announced that prices had to be slashed by up to two thirds with immediate effect. The price cuts mean that goods are now being sold for less than they were purchased for and that once the stocks are sold, they will not be able to be replaced. It is a recipe for massive food shortages and already the black marketeers are rubbing their hands with glee. On Friday evening, emerging from a 15 hour electricity cut, the first report on the propaganda news was the Police announcing that they were about to start arresting wholesalers, retailers and businessmen who had not slashed their prices.

To add to the air of uncertainty , Mr Mugabe also spoke out about price increases and profiteering this week. He chose a State Funeral as his platform and was visibly angry: "We will SEIZE, SEIZE the mines," he said coldly, his face shining with sweat, " we will nationalize them. And companies, we will take them all over." The funeral at the National Heroes Acre, appeared to be attended largely by army personnel, and the venue was decorated with the usual political banners, one of which read: 'Mugabe Is Right.'

Those people who can, continue to pour out of the country, including teachers and this week came the shocking news that in one province 48 schools had recorded a zero % pass rate in recent public examinations. It is a damning admission for any country to have to make and utterly tragic that it is politics of the present that is making a millstone that will hang around Zimbabwe's neck for the next thirty or more years.
Until next week, thanks for reading, love cathy."

Sound familiar?

Isn't this a necessity to finally put the US under a governing authority for enforcement of decisions reached by the so called World Court?

If an individual is deemed to be guilty of a crime against the people of the world then wouldn't InterPol have the authority under world jurisdiction to apprehend that individual? You know, like individuals involved in inciting and conducting an illegal war?

Combating Environmental Crime with INTERPOL


December 9th, 2009 Posted by Tracy Russo

Today, the U.S. National Central Bureau (INTERPOL Washington) is hosting its first U.S. Interagency Environmental Crime Meeting. INTERPOL’s General Secretariat and INTERPOL Washington partnered in this effort to bring together approximately 35 representatives from federal agencies to discuss ways to foster communication and identify opportunities to enhance international cooperation and participation in combating environmental crime.

“I am quite pleased that INTERPOL Washington and INTERPOL’s General Secretariat have partnered in this great effort to build partnerships with federal agencies that have a strong focus in protecting our environment. I hope this meeting today will be the first of many as we all work collaboratively to prevent crimes that can have a detrimental effect on our environment both nationally and internationally,” stated INTERPOL Washington Director Timothy Williams.

Environmental crime is any breach of a national or international environmental law or treaty that exists to ensure the conservation and sustainability of the world’s environment, biodiversity, or natural resources. Examples of this type of crime include poaching and trafficking of wildlife and the illegal emission of pollutants into waterways or the air.

____________________________________________

Interpol could be shaping up to be Algore's own little army of enivro-Brownshirts. Another hot area of Interpol interest: so-called war crimes (our military members in Iraq and Afghanistan are prime targets of such prosecutorial overreach).

What Obama has done is give Interpol unfettered freedom to investigate the lives and businesses of US citizens in the United States in complete and utter secrecy. We're not allowed to know what methods were used or what information was collected. And Interpol is free to turn over the information to any other country or international tribunal such as the International Criminal Court for prosecution that can allege that a treaty or law was broken.

CAn we see his damn birth certificate NOW, before he sells the country?

What he’s done should be treason, but technically, it can’t be called that, because you have to be a CITIZEN for it to be treason, and this ba$tard isn’t one.

However odious, BO's actions here are not treason under the very narrow definition given by the United States Constitution.

But... There is a legal theory that allows even non-citizens to be treated as citizens for purposes of treason prosecutions.

William Joyce, "Lord Haw Haw" fled England as WWII broke out, and traveled to Germany to volunteer his services to Hitler. He soon became Goebbels leading English language propaganda broadcaster.

The Brits captured him at the end of the war, and tried him for treason. Joyce's defense was that he had actually been born in the United States, where his parents lived when he was born, and under the laws in place at the time of his birth, was not in fact a British subject, and could not have be convicted of treason against the British Crown.

The British courts said nope, you stated in writing that were a British subject when you registered to vote, and when you sought a British passport. You cannot now deny that you owe an allegiance to the King.

The legal doctrine is called estoppel, meaning that a litigant may be (in certain cases) precluded from denying in court the truth of a statement that they have previously sworn to be true. If I were a Birther (I'm not - just check my posts), and if this were treason (its not - read the Constitution), I would argue that by not only registering to vote, but actually winning elections and taking an oath that he "will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States," BO is liable for prosecution for treason, notwithstanding his nationality.
