The blogosphere has been buzzing with a story and an Executive Order that has flown under the radar. Last week, Barack Obama signed an amendment to Executive Order 12425. The Executive Order announcement from the Office of The Spokesmoron reads:
The White House
Office of the Press Secretary

Executive Order — Amending Executive Order 12425

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.
Upon reading this, many people would just pass over the legalese as nothing to worry about. Scrutiny of the particular section referenced proves how nefarious this action is to America. Section (c) reads:
(c) Property and assets of international organizations, wherever located and by whomsoever held, shall be immune from search, unless such immunity be expressly waived, and from confiscation. The archives of international organizations shall be inviolable.
That is inviolable by even United States sovereignty. That would include the Interpol office in the Department of Defense. This protects Interpol from the Freedom of Information Act. Several bloggers have pointed out that the United States could hand documents over to Interpol to keep them from American citizens. The President has now exempted Interpol from search and seizure. This places Interpol above the FBI, CIA and the Constitution.
During the reign of the Third Reich and Hitler, Interpol was under the jurisdiction of the SS. Interpol was headquartered in Austria and Hitler knew that whoever ruled Austria would have control of Interpol. Germany conquered Austria early during World War II and thus the SS had control of Interpol. Interpol elected a Nazi as their vice-president in 1937. That Nazi, General Kurt Daluege, was executed for war crimes in 1946. The presence of Nazis in Interpol did not deter the FBI from seeking membership with Interpol and it did so under J. Edgar Hoover. The U.S. paid $1,500 in annual dues and gained membership in 1938.
In 1996, Interpol signed a partnership agreement with the United nations and the two work hand in hand in their efforts. Interpol’s website states that the agreement provides for the following:
“The co-operation agreement grants the two organizations observer status in sessions of their respective general assemblies. The agreement outlines further areas in which the two organizations could co-ordinate their efforts:
- responding to the needs of the international community in fighting crime
- assisting states in their efforts to combat organized crime
- co-operating in the implementation of the mandates of international judicial bodies
- carrying out joint investigations and other police-related matters in the context of peace-keeping
- establishing joint databases related to penal law.”
Anyone who has observed the history of the United Nations, finds their claims of peacekeeping to be laughable. Their peacekeepers raped African women. The United Nations has worked for years to put American sovereignty under international treaties and now apparently, Interpol is working towards that same end.
I expect our next move will be to join the International Criminal Court, which will again undermine American sovereignty. And Obama would probably love to present former vice president Dick Cheney to that court for war crimes. Andy McCarthy of National Review Online rightly asks, “Why would we elevate an international police force above American law? Why would we immunize an international police force from the limitations that constrain the FBI and other American law-enforcement agencies? 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?” McCarthy also covers the history of Executive Order 12425 originally signed by Ronald Reagan, but with stipulations that left Interpol open to U.S. search and seizure.
Obama promised that he and his groupies were “five days away from fundamentally changing America.” The past year has revealed to what lengths Obama and his administration will go to in order to create that fundamental change. He did promise hope and change. America has gotten that change and it is erasing our hope. The New Global World Order’s infrastructure is being built around us.
