IS THE U.S. NOW SUBSERVIENT TO A GLOBAL POLICE ORGANIZATION?
News Analysis by Sharon Rondeau
(Jan. 3, 2009) — On December 17, 2009, an amendment to Executive Order #12425 was issued by the White House. The original version, signed on June 16, 1983 by President Ronald Reagan, reads:
Executive Order 12425 of June 16, 1983
International Criminal Police Organizations
By virtue of the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and statutes of the United States, including Section 1 of the International Organizations Immunities Act (59 Stat. 669, 22 U.S.C. 288), it is hereby ordered that the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL), in which the United States participates pursuant to 22 U.S.C. 263a, is hereby designated as a public international organization entitled to enjoy the privileges, exemptions and immunities conferred by the International Organizations Immunities Act; except those provided by Section 2(c), the portions of Section 2(d) and Section 3 relating to customs duties and federal internal-revenue importation taxes, Section 4, Section 5, and Section 6 of that Act. This designation is not intended to abridge in any respect the privileges, exemptions or immunities which such organization may have acquired or may acquire by international agreement or by Congressional action.
The White House,
June 16, 1983.
The EO was amended by President William Jefferson Clinton in 1995. Clinton’s amendment, Executive Order #12971, signed September 15, 1995, reads:
By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and in order to extend the appropriate privileges, exemptions, and immunities upon the International Criminal Police Organization (“INTERPOL”) it is hereby ordered that Executive Order No. 12425 be amended by deleting, in the first sentence, the words “the portions of Section 2(d) and” and the words “relating to customs duties and federal internal-revenue importation taxes.
Obama’s amendment appearing on the White House website (http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/executive-order-amending-executive-order-12425), dated December 17, 2009, reads as follows:
– – – – – – –
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.
According to http://edocket.access.gpo.gov/2009/pdf/E9-30413.pdf, Obama’s Executive Order has been renumbered to 13524.
INTERPOL describes itself as follows (http://www.interpol.int/public/icpo/default.asp):
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.’
Also according to INTERPOL’s website, the organization focuses on six main areas of global crime:
- Drugs and criminal organizations;
- Financial and high-tech crime;
- Public safety and terrorism;
- Trafficking in human beings; and
INTERPOL’s website begins with the caption “2009 – A milestone year for INTERPOL” (http://www.interpol.int/):
The unprecedented INTERPOL-United Nations Ministerial meeting which saw more than 60 ministers backing a plan to bring the enhanced role of police in peacekeeping and peacebuilding operations to the forefront of the international security agenda, the official opening of INTERPOL’s Office of its Special Representative to the European Union and the new INTERPOL Regional Bureau in Yaoundé were just some of the key events for the world’s largest police organization in 2009.
The year also saw the launch of the first-ever INTERPOL passport, and the organization further strengthening its commitment to supporting each of its 188 member countries in combating all forms of transnational crime with INTERPOL’s databases, tools and services now reaching more law enforcement officers in more locations than at any time in its history.
There is no mention on the INTERPOL website of Executive Order 12425. However, there is speculation that Obama’s amending of the executive order is a step toward the United States becoming subservient to an international organization. From http://www.theobamafile.com/_eligibility/EO12425.htm:
Here’s the text of 2(c), which this EO now has applying to INTERPOL:
(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.
An INTERPOL branch in the US now cannot be searched, it’s (sic) files are not subject to legal subpoena nor discovery. If any branch of government wants to keep documents out of the hands of the court system, just hand them over to INTERPOL until the smoke clears.
INTERPOL will now be able to maintain files on US citizens.
By this EO, Obama has conferred diplomatic immunity upon INTERPOL, exemption from being subject to search and seizure by law enforcement, exemption from US taxes, and immunity from FOIA requests, etc.
Obama just declared INTERPOL records immune from search and seizure — ‘The archives of international organizations shall be inviolable.’
Does INTERPOL have a file on Obama — on his associations?
From Piplinenews.org (http://www.pipelinenews.org/index.cfm?page=orderdec1209.htm):
Since Interpol performs various investigative duties including those related to the International Criminal Court, the changes in 12425 seem to clear the way as a first step to placing the United States under the jurisdiction of the ICC [as noted by Threats Watch] allowing Interpol to without restriction conduct investigations of U.S. citizens, organizations, etc.
Maybe interpol has a file on obama. That could be the reason for all this.
I put forth another theory. Obama is decided to have a civilian prosecution of KSM in New York, and many speculate that the real reason is to, once again, like always with obama, get Bush. They want to satisfy the left’s bloodlust for Bush. Now we learn that obama gives free reign to interpol to come and collect war criminals.
It’s not hard to put two and two together as to what they may be doing.
I am flabergasted and amazed at just how quickly our country is descending to third world levels under these people.
