If I were over-the-top emotive, and took everything personally, I would be screaming like a petrified child watching a slasher movie. This administration, and the enabling Congress, is a complete and utter disaster. Thanks to everyone who helped this happen: the media, the white-guilt-mongers, the leftists, George Soros (his background deserves a separate post which I’ll provide someday), ACORN, and most of all Senator McCain and the Republican Party, who bungled the 2008 election.
I can only hope for change (ha ha) in 2010. November is coming fast, and maybe, just maybe, some of the Socialist damage will be reversed.
By the way, the list left out the latest insult to our sovereignty by our very own Dear Leader, I mean President:
Last Thursday, December 17, 2009, The White House released an Executive Order “Amending Executive Order 12425.” It grants INTERPOL (International Criminal Police Organization) a new level of full diplomatic immunity afforded to foreign embassies and select other “International Organizations” as set forth in the United States International Organizations Immunities Act of 1945. By removing language from President Reagan’s 1983 Executive Order 12425, 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.
For Immediate Release December 17, 2009
Executive Order — Amending Executive Order 12425
EXECUTIVE ORDER- – – – – – -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©, Section 3, Section 4, Section 5, and Section 6 of that Act” and the semicolon that immediately precedes them.
THE WHITE HOUSE,December 16, 2009.
What does this mean? From http://patriotroom.com/article/obama-exempts-interpol-from-search-and-seizure-on-us-lands:
It means that we have an international police force authorized to act within the United States that is no longer subject to 4th Amendment Search and Seizure. The “property and assets of [INTERPOL], wherever located and by whomsoever held, shall be immune from search, unless such immunity be expressly waived, and from confiscation.”
INTERPOL, an international criminal police organization, is now poised to reside above the United States Constitution – in a place of sanctity beyond our FBI, CIA, DIA, and all other criminal investigatory domestic organizations.
President Obama has just placed our Constitutional rights under international law.
For all of those who howled like wounded animals about Bush and the Patriot Act. . . this is your reward. INTERPOL agents can come into your home in the UNITED STATES and do whatever they want, without fear of interference from any US law enforcement agency. What is it about Europe that makes Leftists salivate and prostrate themselves? Now we entrust INTERPOL with our very freedom. This is absolutely unbelievable.
