INTERPOL is granted immunity from U.S. law
A dictatorial police state must have a police force. Pres. Obama’s Executive Order 12425 gave diplomatic immunity inside America to Interpol,
Why Does Interpol Need Immunity from American Law? 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. … That is, Interpol’s property and assets are no longer subject to search and confiscation, and its archives are now considered inviolable. This international police force (whose U.S. headquarters is in the Justice Department in Washington) will be unrestrained by the U.S. Constitution and American law while it operates in the United States and affects both Americans and American interests outside the United States.
Executive Order Amended Immunizing INTERPOL In America — Is The ICC Next? [Scroll down] 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
American sovereignty hangs in the balance if these actions are not prevented through public outcry and political pressure.
What is Barack Obama doing? Some distressing civil liberties questions must be asked about an ever-lengthening list of decisions, proposals, and observations by President Obama. To begin, Obama is the first president to give an international law enforcement organization like Interpol free rein within the territorial confines of this nation, presumably not excluding the arrest and exportation of Americans to be charged with crimes under international law. Put simply, this means the Constitution is no longer the supreme law of the land in America.
Why Immunity for Interpol? I asked here a week ago why President Obama decided it was suddenly necessary to place the international police agency, Interpol, above the constraints of American law. There has been no answer, but the question is is not going away — not until the President explains himself.
Obama Order Strips Americans of Constitutional Rights. While our “Constitutional Scholar” president insists on full Constitutional rights for terrorists, he has at least attempted to repeal the 4th Amendment protections for Americans, with particular impact on the men and women in the U.S. military. An Executive Order dated December 17 grants full diplomatic immunity to INTERPOL, the International Criminal Police Organization. This Obama Order immunizes INTERPOL from “search and seizure,” from all tax laws, from the Freedom of Information requirements, and puts INTERPOL above the jurisdiction of American Law Enforcement, American Courts, and the Constitution itself.
Interpol Immunity. Finally, today, we get at least an attempt at an explanation of President Obama’s dead-of-night decision on December 16 to grant Interpol — the international police force — immunity from American law. … The biggest problem with President Obama’s immunity grant is that it came without any explanation. The administration can’t or won’t explain why a president — whose administration is notoriously indifferent to American sovereignty — suddenly decided Interpol needed to be freed from the U.S. Constitution and other American law.
Interpol — Fascist Friends. Interpol insisted it ‘went out of business’ during the Second World War, and repeatedly told Congress this. But, evidence showing the exact opposite was later provided! Also, a June 1940 Interpol document openly says that the ‘Prague Butcher’, Reinhard Heydrich, ran Interpol during the war. He is the one who ‘masterminded’ the ‘final solution’. He was appointed to head Interpol a few months after Interpol’s 1939 Convention in Berlin, by “the SS and chief of the German police, Heinrich Himmler“. As head of Interpol, he engineered details of the ‘final solution’, with Interpol heads and leading Nazis, including Adolph Eichmann.
Obama’s Secret Vault: Glenn Beck spoke for a host of other government watchdogs when he said on the air: “We’ve been asking ever since it was signed: Why? Who can tell me what special interest group asked for this? If it were about terror, why not tell us that when he signed it? he attacks our CIA and FBI, but Interpol gets immunity? Why? It makes no sense.”
The United States Has Been Sold Out And The International Police Have Arrived. Government is about power. … A dictatorial police state must have a police force. Pres. Obama’s Executive Order 12425 gave diplomatic immunity inside America to Interpol, the International Criminal Police, immunity denied to the CIA, FBI and American police. Interpol ignores Habeas Corpus. There’s no Interpol right to an attorney. Diplomatic Immunity means Interpol can investigate and keep secret files on American citizens. Interpol issues its own arrest warrants without Constitutional oversight. Interpol files assisted Germany in “the final solution.”
President George W. Bush rejected subjecting the United States to the jurisdiction of the ICC and removed the United States as a signatory.
President Bill Clinton had previously signed the Rome Statute during his presidency. Two critical matters are at play. One is an overall matter of sovereignty and the concept of the primacy of American law above those of the rest of the world. But more recently a more over-riding concern principally has been the potential – if not likely – specter of subjecting our Armed Forces to a hostile international body seeking war crimes prosecutions during the execution of an unpopular war.
President Bush in fact went so far as to gain agreement from nations that they would expressly not detain or hand over to the ICC members of the United States armed forces. The fear of a symbolic ICC circus trial as a form of international political protest to American military actions in Iraq and elsewhere was real and palpable.
President Obama’s words have been carefully chosen when directly regarding the ICC. While President Bush outright rejected subjugating American armed forces to any international court as a matter of policy, President Obama said in his 2008 presidential campaign that it is merely “premature to commit” to signing America on.
However, in a Foreign Policy in Focus round-table in 2008, the host group cited his former foreign policy advisor, Samantha Power.
She essentially laid down what can be viewed as now-President Obama’s roadmap to America rejoining the ICC.
It is probable that President Barack Obama will once again make America a signatory to the International Criminal Court. It will be a move that surrenders American sovereignty to an international body whose INTERPOL enforcement arm has already been elevated above the Constitution and American domestic law enforcement.
In light of what we know and can observe, it is our logical conclusion that President Obama’s Executive Order amending President Ronald Reagans’ 1983 EO 12425 and placing INTERPOL above the United States Constitution and beyond the legal reach of our own top law enforcement is a precursor to more damaging moves.
