It is the first day of the calendar year 2010; the year in which true Americans hope to rid our country from the scourge of traitorous and anti-American behavior so prevalent in the Congress and Administration.

But few people have heard about a potential act of infamy by Barack Obama when he signed an Executive Order on Wednesday, December 16, 2009 amending already existing Executive Order 12425 “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.”

This seemingly innocuous action done in typical Obama Administration to prevent overt transparency, in other words, ‘keep it quiet and under cover’ should be getting blasted by every conservative politician and journalist in our country.  I did not expect the Mainstream Media to publish information on it as they are part of the transparency “cover up” enjoyed by our government; but I did expect screams of rage from high ranking minority party officials and other news organs than MSM.

Canada Free Press has had a couple of articles giving the ghastly details of this action that in effect will “allow an international police authority to overrule the US government” as CFP columnist Barry Napier mentioned in his piece on Wednesday, December 30, 2009.  But, WHERE IS THE CONSERVATIVE OUTRAGE?

The Washington Examiner editorial on December 30, 2009 stated “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.’ “

I realize that Congress is in another one of their numerous “vacation” periods; but are all the conservatives asleep or just not caring?  I would hope that I am overly concerned and that one of them at least will be in the news today blasting this utter deceitful and dangerous presidential action.

If not, then I guess we can forget about any timely or effective actions to be taken to clean house in Washington in November.
