Barry Obama Signs Away the Store to Interpol
This item has been kept completely under the radar. I had not heard about it until Dana mentioned it to me a couple of days ago.
No presidential statement or White House press briefing was held on it. In fact, all that can be found about it on the official White House Web site is the Dec. 17 announcement and one-paragraph text of President Obama's Executive Order 12425, with this innocuous headline: "Amending Executive Order 12425 Designating Interpol as a public international organization entitled to enjoy certain privileges, exemptions, and immunities."In fact, this new directive from Obama may be the most destructive blow ever struck against American constitutional civil liberties.
No wonder the White House said as little as possible about it.
After a bit of checking around, it seems that the main theme has been that many Presidents/administrations have granted similar privileges to other outfits such as the Red Cross, the International Monetary fund, International Atomic Energy Agency, and even groups such as the International Pacific Halibut Commission.
Most media outlets are merely poo-pooing this Obama Executive Order as a no-nevermind. After all - if the Halibut Commision can be truisted to operate here int he USA without the need to turn over all of their records, why shouldn't Interpol?
I'll tell you why.
I don't think there is much threat that the Halibut Commissiion will tap my telephones, illegally monitor my internet activity, scrutinize my personal records, snoop into my most private and personal affairs, etc. etc. etc.
Interpol, on the other hand, is the world's largest law enforcement organization. Interpos is essentially a world-wide version of the FBI, CIA, NSA, NCIS, combined. Sneaking, snooping, and spying is what they do for a living.
Jesus H. Christ!
These are the very folks that the Bill of Rights was meant to protect us from. Now these spooks are going to be granted carte-blanche to do whatever they choose to do. They will be able to steal, copy, observe, read, and otherwise snoop, spy, and meddle in the private affairs of anyone in the USA without fear of their records being seized or divulged.
Did I mention that this was a Presidential Executive Order? Obama did this himself with his own hand.
