I’m getting emails from folks wondering why I haven’t yet blogged about the E.O. President Obama signed that essentially gives INTERPOL carte blanche on US soil.
What is there really to say about it that the pros haven’t said? We all knew he’d do something that outrageous. Some folks thought he’d wait a little longer. Other folks are surprised it took him eleven months.
Why did he do it? There are two possibilities: Because he’s an idiot who has no idea what he is doing, or because when he decides that he’s had enough from the opposition, he’s going to need a police force that will have no objections to rounding up any Tom, Dick and Harry that he and his people want grabbed.
Say what you will about them, but even the alphabet soup agencies ask questions from time to time and they leak like a colander. He can’t farm up enough Brownshirts from the Progressive Caucus in four or even eight years because the logistics of it are just too big. This move is something under the radar and already has boots on the ground.
Jackboots, to be exact.
There’s only one MSM’er who is asking any questions about it and the Administration keeps responding by acting as though his query is about what makes the apple pies in the press room so damn tasty.
What can we do about it? Not a damn thing. Which is why the Executive Order privilege needs to be taken away.
Oh sure, Congress can undercut the E.O. via legislation. But the current one won’t, so we’re ass-out until 2010 or 2012.
Why am I not worried? Because he didn’t import artificially intelligent armored robots. Just like any other US based jackboot force, these guys can be shot and killed.
I long ago resigned myself to the likelihood of having to defend my human rights via violence at some point in my life, and I don’t rightly care if their jackets say INTERPOL, or ATF, or FBI, or Treasury, or IRS, or FDA, or NEA.
Nihilism does have its upsides.
