Could Obama Use INTERPOL to Evade Constitutional Law?
NewsReal ^ | December 30, 2009 | Liz Blaine

Posted on 12/30/2009 11:51:35 AM PST by callisto

Much has been written recently since ThreatsWatch first broke the story of President Obama’s stealth Executive Order (EO) rendering an international police force immune from the restrictions of the Constitution and American law. Reports are focusing on the ramifications of the EO to U.S. sovereignty and the potential surrender of Americans to war crime tribunals in the International Criminal Court (ICC). But is the President using the 2(c) provision to sidestep Constitutional law and place the U.S. under the jurisdiction of the ICC without ratification of the UN Treaty by 2/3 of the Senate? Or is he granting unrecognized authority to INTERPOL, the International Criminal Police Organization, providing them unrestrained power over the American people? And could he use these privileges to step above and beyond the Constitution, or as a means for political cronies to profit?

I forgot to add that there’s an amazing set of sourced links within the article. This story needs wider promotion than only online.

I think he is looking to use this as a tool to arrest “war criminals” George Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld. Its just a piece of his nefarious agenda.

Is this the one I heard that if they wanted to they could go after (and arrest) Ex-President Bush?

With tinfoil hat firmly in place, I say:

Some of the Stimulus money is being actively used to set up an infrastructure for a domestic force aimed at quelling civil unrest. This force will be associated with INTERPOL and will not be subject to the US Constitution. Recruitment will begin in major cities, in an effort to deal with a growing unemployment problem.

All of this will happen in the Spring of 2010 as civil unrest in the US grows as a result of the worsening economic climate.

If not, then he can always use Congress and the Supreme Court.

The SOB is looking to control the American people through outside forces, since he won’t be able to count on the U.S. military to fire on their own families. The question is, what is he going to do to get the U.S. military out of the picture. WOLVERINES!

From reading the article it appears that may be one, of many, ways he can use the EO.

Did you see the article about the horde of ammo Homeland Security has ordered? From what I hear, per employee licensed to carry arms, it exceeds the maximum an LEO would use in a year including target practice.

I’m not sure we want to ask that question. I’m guessing if he is as nefarious as some suspect he has considered this possibility.

Currently, INTERPOL is a clearing house of info and intel. They don’t have a bunch of agents running around arresting people.
Naturally, that could change.

Yeah, I saw.

I'm convinced that the game is afoot. Obama wants us to start it, and he will push and push and be ever more over the top until someone, somewhere snaps and does something. Then Obama will move fast and unveil all that he has prepared for us.

Why don't the Rebublicans hold a press conference and ask some tough questions about why this President has done this.

This is going virtually unreported in the MSM! This story would raise a few eyebrows among the citizens that still have a soul. Like the press used to say when this country was still free...."The people have the right to know!"

What is scary to me is that I read your post and it made sense and without my tinfoil hat on.

I may have finally snapped.. I might have gone over the fence, around the bend and into the abyss of crazy man hell.

I have 911 on hold, should I tell them to come and get me or should I resist?

He’s got plenty of recruits who have NO loyalty to this nation.

The ‘incident’ at ft. Hood also comes to mind.

Soldiers sworn in as U.S. citizens

[snip]”Immigrant soldiers receive expedited naturalization. A recent report from the Immigration Policy Center said that as of June 30 there were 114,601 foreign-born individuals serving in the U.S. armed forces or about 7.91 percent of the 1.4 million military personnel on active duty.

And between Oct. 1, 2008 and Sept. 30, 2009, 10,505 immigrant soldiers became citizens, the report said.

* An overwhelming majority (69 percent) of people in Mexico thought that the primary loyalty of Mexican-Americans (Mexico- and U.S.-born) should be to Mexico. Just 20 percent said it should be to the United States. The rest were unsure

The Bible tends to show a different reaction to nations that deny his existence and willfully disobey his laws. In fact there seem to be many examples. Just saying.

Unfortunately, I feel the same way. I think this man's intentions are far more devious than people want to admit.

This EO is scary as hell .. I’m not too worried about them trying to arrest Bush/Cheney they do have secret service protection at all times and I dont think Dear Leader is that stupid to turn a blind eye if Interpol were to ever target those two. That being said, the only reason I can think of for such an order is to remove opposition without the intereference of the American proccess

His EO certainly bypasses Senate ratification of the UN treaty. Perhaps Obama’s trying to make up for his failure to commit the US to the COP15 climate treaty.

He seems to being doing a great job of it already with Nancy and Harry, and soon to have a packed Court. He doesn't need interpol.

Does anyone realise that Interpol has no arrest power anywhere?

All they really do is act as a clearing house for information and distribute wanted notices called red sheets.

from http://www.interpol.int

........

INTERPOL is the world’s largest international police organization, with 188 member countries. Created in 1923, it facilitates cross-border police co-operation, and supports and assists all organizations, authorities and services whose mission is to prevent or combat international crime.

INTERPOL aims to facilitate international police co-operation even where diplomatic relations do not exist between particular countries. Action is taken within the limits of existing laws in different countries and in the spirit of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. INTERPOL’s constitution prohibits ‘any intervention or activities of a political, military, religious or racial character.’
.....

Of course I would not trust interpol OR the push to actually give them arrest powers in the future. If anything, if interpot is doing anything with the UN then it is by its nature political.

You should read the article. I read the content at the source links and if you check the USNCB/INTERPOL website their prime function has been to seek and arrest US fugitives. Unbelievably, they search for EPA fugitives.

When the final line is drawn in the sand, the Oathkeepers will be our biggest asset. Most of the Oathkeepers have put their lives on the line for America and the Constitution. They will do it again to secure Liberty and Freedom for the Republic. All Freepers should take time to check out the Oathkeepers site. It would be smart to know who will be there when it counts. By the way, the Oathkeepers are not a political group. They support the Constitution and the American way.

Obama will create some insane situation in which some citizens will be forced to defend themselves with firearms. As soon as that happens, bam! Martial law and confiscation of all private firearms “until the emergency has passed.” More armed resistance. Camps open for “right-wing and veteran conservatives.” Elections “postponed.” For the children. It’s not that slippery a slope.

Here is an amusing feature story from Milwaukee. It was the ONLY thing that brought a smile to my face in today's print edition of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Usinger knife tales cut to the heart of giving

Although I've eaten more than my share of Usinger sausage, I don't believe that I've ever received one of their knives! ;-)
