As reported here, here, and here, Obama has no problem ceding the sovereignty of the United States to the international community…he has no loyalty to America and it is so disgustingly obvious. According to Big Government,
In 1983, President Ronald Reagan issued an Executive Order which gave permission to the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL) to operate within the boundaries of the United States. Reagan’s EO put INTERPOL under the same basic guidelines as the CIA, FBI, ATF and other Federal law enforcement agencies.
Here is Obama’s late-year assault, another ‘quietly issued’ Executive Order in which he cedes yet more American sovereignty and jets off to a Hawaiian vacation:

AMENDING EXECUTIVE ORDER 12425 DESIGNATING INTERPOL
AS A PUBLIC INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATION ENTITLED TO
ENJOY CERTAIN PRIVILEGES, EXEMPTIONS, AND IMMUNITIES
By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including section 1 of the International Organizations Immunities Act (22 U.S.C. 288), and in order to extend the appropriate privileges, exemptions, and immunities to the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL), it is hereby ordered that Executive Order 12425 of June 16, 1983, as amended, is further amended by deleting from the first sentence the words “except those provided by Section 2(c), Section 3, Section 4, Section 5, and Section 6 of that Act” and the semicolon that immediately precedes them.
INTERPOL is given diplomatic immunity for any property–including citizens–it may seize anywhere in the world, including the United States.
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.
According to ThreatsWatch,
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.
And the National Review asks, “Why does Interpol Need Immunity from American Law?”, predicting that this is a likely precursor to Obama allowing American citizens to be tried in the International Court at the Hague.
Interpol works closely with international tribunals such as the International Criminal Court (ICC)… and with foreign courts and law-enforcement authorities such as those in Europe that are investigating former Bush administration officials…
Bush had resisted any cooperation with the ICC on the premise it would expose U.S. troops to prosecution for war crimes. In one sense, this also allows international access to not only U.S. soldiers, but to Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Powell, and others…so this fits into Obama’s continued threat to prosecute CIA agents and initial sabre-rattling regarding prosecuting Bush administration officials.
Some Possible Explanations?
There are many angles here, certain to raise more questions than not. At first view, it is of course unconstitutional, violating the right to privacy, exceeding the President’s Article II authority, and the Congress is abrogating its responsibility.
Everyone is looking the other way while America is being attacked, and now American civilians and military personnel are the cannon fodder for someone elses policies. The problem, in my view, is that any one or combination of these is plausible.
- Timing. A critical look at the timing of Obama’s executive order is required. Quietly signs the E.O.; jets off to Hawaii; a Christmas eve health care vote; Flight 253 and suspicious response; bombing of CIA employees in Afghanistan (what are they doing there?); continued financial transactions by the U.S. Treasury; and ACORN’s continued involvement in financial oversight. At the same time Obama’s poll numbers are tanking, this is (at least) the second major terrorist event inside the United States to happen on his watch in less than a year of office.
- Blackmail? Given that international agencies and governments probably know more about Obama than Americans, is this an exchange? That is, quiet on Obama’s citizenship in exchange for access to Americans?
- Ushering in the NWO? Along with the blackmail above, is this the another way to invade and monitor Americans’ electronic, phone, communications, travel, or financial transactions?
- Something bigger? Is Interpol onto something else, like this, this, or this? Lame Cherry, Political Pistachio Radio Revolution, Logistics Monster, and Atlas Shrugs are definitely sketching out a much broader picture. The ten most liberal cities in the U.S. ranked in order are: Detroit, Gary, Berkeley, Washington, D.C., Oakland, Inglewood California, Newark, Cambridge, Massachusetts, San Francisco and Flint,Michigan. Chicago is no. 17 and New York, NY, is no. 21.
