Warning from the
50's: Health Care Bill will lead to
With the signing of an under-publicized amendment to
Executive Order 12425, Barack Obama has fundamentally altered your
constitutional rights. His actions are undermining your rights to
protect personal privacy from a foreign internationalist police
agency named Interpol. A one-paragraph executive order may seem
inconsequential to many, but this action has far-reaching
implications and threatens the sovereignty of America.
Obama's secretive executive order amended an order
issued by President Reagan in 1983. Reagan's order recognized
Interpol as an international organization and gave it privileges and
immunities commonly extended to foreign diplomats. Reagan opened the
door to allow Interpol to operate in partnership with the U.S. but
with significant constitutional safeguards. Specifically, Interpol's
property and assets remained subject to search and seizure by
American law enforcement, and its archived records remained subject
to public scrutiny under provisions of the Freedom of Information
Act. Interpol had to answer to the FBI and U.S. courts under
Reagan's order. These safeguards were stripped away by Obama's
action the week before Christmas without debate or explanation.
Obama picked the holiday season to make this radical change, to
minimize media coverage.
This order marks a significant change in federal
policy and usurps the constitutional power of our government by
yielding it to an international organization. Michael van Der Galien
writes, "This foreign law-enforcement organization can operate free
of an important safeguard against government and abuse. Property and
assets, including the organization's records, cannot now be searched
or seized. Their physical operational locations are now immune from
U.S. legal and investigative authorities."
Obama has given an international organization
unsupervised freedom to investigate Americans on our own soil
without recourse or the supervision of our own
Andy McCarthy writing for the National Review asks
some very significant questions: "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?"
Interpol is the enforcement arm of the International
Criminal Court, or ICC. The United States never signed onto the Rome
Treaty, which created the ICC, because of the potential for abuse by
foreign interests. Obama has signaled he may sign the treaty over
these objections and subject Americans to prosecution overseas in
the ICC. This is harmful for two reasons. First, the U.S.
Constitution clearly states that it is the supreme law of our land,
and allowing the ICC to supersede the U.S. Constitution violates
America's sovereignty. Second, the War on Terror is unpopular with
Europeans, and the ICC may attempt to prosecute heroic American
soldiers with trumped-up war crimes. Obama is putting brave American
men and women at grave risk.
An added wrinkle to this executive order is that
Interpol's operations center for the United States is housed within
our own Justice Department. Many of the agents are Americans who
work under the aegis of Interpol. This order has potentially created
the new civilian security force that Obama proposed during his
campaign. This group of law-enforcement officials is no longer
subject to the restraints enshrined in the U.S.
The order guarantees that Interpol officers have
immunity from prosecution for crimes they may commit in the United
States. Ironically, some Interpol nations are attempting to try
American intelligence agents for their work abroad in the War on
This order shows blatant disregard for the U.S.
Constitution. While Obama is extending due process rights to
terrorists he is weakening those same rights for American citizens.
If a citizen were to be prosecuted by Interpol, their newly granted
immunity would interfere with the discovery process. Since Interpol
files are immune to disclosure, a citizen could be denied his right
to see the information used to prosecute him or her.
Obama's executive order has done more to weaken
civil liberties than the much-maligned Patriot Act. The silence in
the mainstream media on this issue should scare all freedom-loving
Americans. Obama just signed away parts of our precious legal

CARE REFORM UPDATE
Update on H.Res 615: Call on Members of
Congress to Enroll in the Public Option
Because you have previously contacted my office by
email in support of H. Res. 615, my resolution calling on Members of
Congress to enroll in the public option, I wanted to give you an
Like many of you, I am deeply concerned that
Congress will press forward to enact an intrusive government
administered health care plan, despite the higher costs and lowered
level of care other countries with similar systems have
You will be pleased to know that more than
100 Members of Congress joined in support of H.
Res. 615, my common sense measure calling on Members who vote for an
intrusive government-administered health care plan to enroll in that
system. Since launching this effort, nearly 3 million
Americans like you have contacted my office in support of
H. Res. 615. In response I offered an amendment to the
Democratic Leadership health care bill to automatically enroll all
Members of Congress and all Senators in the public option.
Predictably, my amendment was rejected out of hand by the Majority
and was not given a vote on the floor of the House of
Common sense seems to have failed us in the
health care debate. That is why I offered a resolution asking
Members of Congress to put their “money where their mouth is” and
call for Members who support a public option lead by example and be
required to enroll in the public option themselves. If a
Member is willing to vote for such an option, why shouldn’t they
enroll in it?
THE DOCTOR’S DIAGNOSIS: There is no doubt about
it; health care in America must be reformed. The answer,
however, is not an intrusive government administered health care
plan. As a practicing physician for over 30 years, I am
concerned that the kind of “reform” being debated back and forth on
Capitol Hill will insert Washington bureaucrats between patients and
their doctors, burden the middle class with new taxes, and raise
insurance premiums for almost everyone. That is unacceptable
“reform.” I will continue to work to represent you and to
bring common sense back to this debate.

Can we actually
impeach Barack Hussein Obama? Should we impeach Barack Hussein
To borrow a phrase from the
"anointed-one," ... "yes we can."
But before going on, we really need
to address the often misunderstood subject of what exactly
constitutes an impeachable offense, in order to illustrate that
Barack Obama's actions are grave enough to warrant impeachment.
Former-President Gerald Ford, while
serving in the House of Representatives, said an impeachable offense
was, “whatever a majority of the House of
Representatives considers it to be at a given moment in history.”
Article II, Section 4 of
the Constitution reads: “The President, Vice
President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be
removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason,
bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”
The key phrase here is "high crimes and misdemeanors,” a concept
in English Common Law that was well-known to our Founding Fathers
but is grossly misunderstood in this day and age.
and misdemeanors" essentially means bad behavior.
Here's a passage from
C-Span.org which succinctly and beautifully summarizes the
historical significance surrounding the inclusion of the term "high crimes and misdemeanors" in the
“’High crimes and misdemeanors’ entered the text of
the Constitution due to George Mason and James Madison. Mason had
argued that the reasons given for impeachment - treason and bribery
- were not enough. He worried that other "great and dangerous
offenses" might not be covered... so Mason then proposed ‘high
crimes and misdemeanors,’ a phrase well-known in English common law.
In 18th century language, a ‘misdemeanor’ meant ‘mis-demeanor,’ or
In other words, "high
crimes and misdemeanors" does not refer to a criminal act
(as some would lead you to believe) and our Founding Fathers
fully intended to allow for the removal of the President for actions
which were... well... simply put... egregious... grossly
incompetence... grossly negligence... outright distasteful... or, in
the case of Barack Hussein Obama, actions which clearly show "malevolence toward this country, which is
make no mistake, for those who mistakenly hold the illusion that
impeaching Barack Hussein Obama would be a simple matter of "playing politics," the Founders fully
intended that the impeachment of a sitting President be a political
As C-Span.org notes:
“The Congress decides the definition [of impeachable
offenses]: by majority vote in the House for impeachment, and by 2/3
vote in the Senate for conviction. The Framers of the Constitution
deliberately put impeachment into the hands of the legislative
branch rather than the judicial branch, thus transforming it from
strictly a matter of legal definition to a matter of political
judgment. Then Representative Gerald Ford put it into practical
perspective in 1970, when he said an impeachable offense is
‘whatever a majority of the House of Representatives considers it to
be at a given moment in history.’"

exemplifies maladministration. It qualifies as the poster-child for
Obama and those
around him are ravaging this great country and adding a sorry

O'Bomba is more dangerous than Hitler and should be impeached before

The following Ben Stein article is confirmed by

truths: The American people in their unimaginable kindness and trust
voted for a pig in a poke in 2008. They wanted so much to believe
Barack Obama was somehow better and different from other
ultra-leftists that they simply took him on faith.
They ignored his anti-white writings in his books.
They ignored his quiet acceptance of hysterical anti-American
diatribes by his minister, Jeremiah Wright.
They ignored his refusal to explain years at a time
of his life as a student. They ignored his ultra-left record as a
"community organizer," Illinois state legislator, and Senator.
The American people ignored his total zero of an
academic record as a student and teacher, his complete lack of
scholarship when he was being touted as a scholar.
Now, the American people are starting to wake up to
the truth. Barack Obama is a super likeable super leftist, not a fan
of this country, way, way too cozy with the terrorist leaders in the
Middle East, way beyond naďveté, all the way into active destruction
of our interests and our allies and our future.
The American people have already awakened to the
truth that the stimulus bill -- a great idea in theory -- was really
an immense bribe to Democrat interest groups, and in no way an
effort to help all Americans.
Now, Americans are waking up to the truth that
ObamaCare basically means that every time you are sick or injured,
you will have a clerk from the Department of Motor Vehicles telling
your doctor what he can and cannot do.
The American people already know that Mr. Obama's
plan to lower health costs while expanding coverage and bureaucracy
is a myth, a promise of something that never was and never will be
-- a bureaucracy lowering costs in a free society. Either the costs
go up or the free society goes away.
These are perilous times. Mrs. Hillary Clinton, our
Secretary of State, has given Iran the go-ahead to have nuclear
weapons, an unqualified betrayal of the nation. Now, we face a
devastating loss of freedom at home in health care. It will be
joined by controls on our lives to "protect us" from global warming,
itself largely a fraud if believed to be caused by man.
Mr. Obama knows Americans are getting wise and will
stop him if he delays at all in taking away our freedoms.
There is his urgency and our opportunity. Once
freedom is lost, America is lost. Wake up, beloved America.

people were losing jobs, and he was a great speaker. And
he smiled and frowned and waved a lot. And people, even
newspapers, were afraid to speak out for fear that his
"brown shirts" would bully and beat them into
submission. Which they did - regularly. And then, he was
duly elected to office, while a full-throttled economic
crisis bloomed at hand - the Great Depression. Slowly,
but surely he seized the controls of government power,
person by person, department by department, bureaucracy

advocating gun control, health care for all, better
wages, better jobs, and promising to re-instill pride

I wanted to shout, "that was my

decided I was being a poor sport. I spread my hands helplessly and
Then I felt my hip pocket and realized my
wallet was gone. I excused myself and walked to a phone on an
elegant side table.
I learned shortly that my credit
cards had been maxed out, my bank accounts emptied, my retirement

edge of the table as if it were a ledge and I were a man hanging
over an abyss.
I thought of the years behind me, of
the life I had lived. The life I had earned with a lifetime of
work, risk and struggle.
Why was I punished?
How had I allowed it to be taken? What game had I played and
lost? I looked across the table and noticed with some surprise
that there was no game board between us.
