Why Does Interpol Need Immunity from American Law?
National Review Online ^ | 12/23/09 | Andy McCarthy

Posted on 12/28/2009 8:34:16 PM PST by starczar66

You just can't make up how brazen this crowd is. One week ago, President Obama quietly signed an executive order that makes an international police force immune from the restraints of American law.

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?

Read the whole article, but this for me is key.

O will use interpol against Americans, and not even Congress or the Supremes can do anything about it.

Perhaps the keyword in the article was ‘archives.’ Perhaps Interpol has, lost in its archives somewhere, information pertaining to Obama.

Note on dates:
Interpol formed in 1923
Interpol recognized by the US in 1983
Obama’s alleged Pakistan visit was 1981.

If Obama is denying our law-enforcement the ability to search & seize things, perhaps it’ll be if it does come out any handling of whatever the sensitive information is will “contaminate” it as being against the executive order.

Christmas terror attempt may open door for military action in US cities

Snips: “While the rationale for using the US military domestically had been debated for years, President Barack Obama appears intent on using our military at least until he can create his promised ‘Civilian Security Force’ which he said would be as big and powerful as the military,” said political strategist Mike Baker.

The first active-duty unit dedicated to supporting US civilian authorities in the event of a nuclear, biological or chemical attack is wrapping up three days of intensive training in tactics to be used within the continental United States, according to Armed Forces Press Service representative Donna Miles.

Ms. Miles reported to news reporters, bloggers and Internet journalists that troops from the 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team are at the Naval facility located in Indian Head, Maryland getting hands-on training in skills they would depend on to provide support during a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive incident, known here as a CBRNE.

However, not everyone is happy about this latest military development coming so close to the transition from the Bush White House to the Obama Administration. Some observers believe this plan is part of a deal between President Obama and the current Secretary of Defense who remained in his current position even after the Bush-Obama transition.

“While Obama and his team are making it sound as if they will use the military in a non-combative roll, part of the training being conducted is in urban warfare,” claims Mike Baker.

“Obama appears oblivious to Posse Comitatus and to the US Constitution when it comes to using the military against civilians within US borders,” he added.

While the military experts in Obama’s pocket appear excited about this use of soldiers within the borders of the United States, many military and police commanders and officers are less enthusiastic.

Wrong, Congress can undo ANYTHING the President does, They Also have the EXPLICIT POWER in the Constitution to FORBID the SUPREME COURT from hearing any issue they decide.
“unless otherwise directed by congress”

The question really is, Will They do Anything.

Uhhhh.....hasn’t it occurred to any of you that Interpol
would not necessarily follow the kind of orders you are sure Obama would give them to carry out?
I am trying to be logical here. I think you need to examine this a little further.
And yeah, I heard McCarthy on Steve Malzberg today about this piece on NRO (which, btw, is hard to find, once you click on the NRO icon). There’s a lot of speculation that Interpol would function (or this Administration wants to scare you into thinking that it would function) as the same kind of “civilian police force” Obama briefly talked about during the campaign-——establishment of this kind of Stasi/Gestapo style police thug force will get no farther than it already has: this pathetic and ineffectual and disorganized “army” has thus far only “seen action” in the random acts of violence perpetrated by the thugs of SEIU. I hate this creep more than anyone on FR, believe me, but if you’re worried about us being rounded up, and shipped off to camps, or detained, or tortured, or whatever, you just don’t know America. I am not suggesting he hasn’t toyed with the notion, or doesn’t have fond dreams about it, or won’t in the future, as more of his “plans” get scotched,
but don’t underestimate yourself OR the rest of America OR EVEN a good portion of that ever-diminishing constituency,
known as former Obama supporters.Correct me if I’ve misread the argument here.

Their files are out of reach of US law enforcement or courts (per his order). Which means they can do investigations and domestic surveillance that normal law enforcement can’t do.

And if they are beyond accountability, who’s to say what they are really doing? They could be doing legitimate international law enforcement, they could be executing orders on behalf of the ICC, or they could be Sorosian agents doing who knows what. Or his personal thugs operating under the cover of an international badge.

What portion of the 97% of blacks who voted for him do you suppose would vote differently today?

This is an illegal executive order. And if the Supreme Court could ever figure out who has standing, those special persons could file suit and have it struck down. But out of 300 million people subject to the absolute tyranny of this fraudulent order that allows the creation of a de facto gestapo, the SCOTUS, despite it's best efforts, can't find one single person who has standing to sue...

I’d say you have it about right.

Interpol is NOT a military unit, brigade or elite strike force. I doubt they even have the training to march in a straight line to the chow hall even if starving. Interpol is mostly office-type geeks sitting behind a desk shuffling papers or surfing the net. They would be horrified at the prospect of slipping on a pack and heading out to the American hinterlands and rounding up gun-toting, crack-shot hunters and combat veterans.

They have cushy jobs in the world bureaucracy where they can sit around - fat, dumb and happy - and draw a substantial paycheck with zero chance of getting shot. The personnel in Interpol are not glory hounds itching for action, plus they hate John Wayne movies, as the movies remind them of how dippy and inadequate they are.

BTW, clinton gave the same diplomatic immunity to the United Nations NGOs back in the 1990s. The purpose was to hide the NGO’s criminal acts from investigations by future administrations. The EOs worked pretty well in the Iraqi oil for food scandals. Clinton should have been impeached for that.

I wonder how this will go over when the records of Interpol operations go public? Warrant less Searches and Wiretaps, kidnapping, No Miranda rights interrogations, torture or being held for extended periods without being charged? But the left will give it all a pass, because it is their guys doing it.

97% of the black voting age population that constitutes about TWELVE percent of the US Population doesn’t amount to any kind of majority, especially a majority that somewhere down the line, everyone is fantasizing would be willing to engage in a “race war” with non-Blacks. I’d remind you, NO ONE is benefiting much from Obama’s (non) Policies, least of all blacks, least of all Blacks already in the middle or upper middle classes.......of course, they’re trying to revive Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac all over again, and I guess they see that as something that could establish a foothold of goodwill once more for Obama amongst poor, non-house-owning blacks. HOWEVER, the numbers aren’t there, no matter how anyone might want to inflate them, and Blacks didn’t constitute the swing vote a year ago, and they won’t both in this November’s election, and the one 3 years from now.Of course, it was already considered a fait accompli that Obama the candidate would get just that kind of crushingly lopsided black vote for himself, and the Party: that’s part of the reason he became the Party nominee.
And to get back answering your first question, point-blank, yeah, my instincts tell me Obama has , for all practical purposes already lost a good 15% of that imaginary “black mandate”.

On the subject of Japanese internment during WW2:
It was shameful, and should have been seen historically NOT as an aberration of FDR’s multiple Administrations, but somehow emblematic of the basic wrongheadedness of all of them and all their Master Plans for American political institutions.
I have always said (and it was not secret) that this Administration waltzed into office with visions of Sugar Plum New Deal fairies dancing in their heads, and they’ve clumsily assumed they could be just as dictatorial as FDR, because of the historical precedent, but , as stupid as they are, even these losers would not attempt to inter us. It would spell the END of them literally, figuratively, and as a Party.

I am not smart enough to figure out Zero’s reasoning for allowing this.

It must serve some purpose or why do it?

What is that purpose? That is the question. Do we really need an International Police Force in the United States of America, with more powers than our own forces?

Sounds crazy to me, and an insult to our own police forces.

When the President of the United States joins forces with an International coalition which has no powers in our country, and grants that coalition powers on his own without Congressional or Judicial input it gives the appearance of a conspiracy to undermine our own agencies.

When that President has yet to prove he holds his office legitimately according to the Constitution ,it adds to this suspiscion. When that President has ties to terrorists(Bill Ayres and his wife) ties to Communists (Frank Davis)
Black radicals (Rev. Wright and Farrakhan)when he has a working knowledge of the Koran taught to him in childhood by his step-father, and his father was a Muslim.

It’s well past time Americans started wondering just what the hell is going on. This man has taken entirely too many liberties with his Presidential office.

Zero can sign any goddamn thing he wants, there is no special provision anywhere in American law that gives him the right to grant immunity from the law.

Do you really believe that Zero can order a co-equal branch (the courts)on what it can or can not do?

If your reasoning is correct we a more than screwed, we are as WWII vets used to say, screwed, blued and tattooed.
