    Yes, we have reached that point.

    Outrage: Obama Admin. Says Texans Can’t Arrest UN Observers Even if They Violate Texas Law

    In a development that should outrage every red-blooded, patriotic American, the Obama Administration announced that international observers in the United States cannot be arrested by state law enforcement even if the United Nations representatives violate state law.

    As we publicized earlier this week, “United Nations-affiliated election monitors from Europe and central Asia will be at polling places around the U.S. looking for voter suppression activities by conservative groups.” [Click on this "Limited Election Observation Mission to the United States of America" list to see where the international observers will be deploying in your state.]


    Unlike Alaska’s current passivity, Texas confronted this offensive intrusion by international observers with a warning from its Attorney General’s office: “[G]roups and individuals from outside the United States do not have jurisdiction to interfere with Texas elections.” The Attorney General himself also threatened that,

    individuals from outside the United States are not allowed to influence or interfere with the election process in Texas. This State has robust election laws that were carefully crafted to protect the integrity of our election system. All persons—including persons connected with OSCE—are required to comply with these laws.

    Elections and election observation are regulated by state law. The Texas Election Code governs anyone who participates in Texas elections—including representatives of the OSCE. The OSCE’s representatives are not authorized by Texas law to enter a polling place. It may be a criminal offense for OSCE’s representatives to maintain a presence within 100 feet of a polling place’s entrance. Failure to comply with these requirements could subject the OSCE’s representatives to criminal prosecution for violating state law.

    Of course, the internationalist leaders of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) and the United Nations have no appreciation for the concept of state sovereignty. Like most European socialists, they see national governments as supreme, free to dictate any directive to individual states. If they know anything about the US Constitution, they likely consider it hostile to their internationalist aims.

    Consistent with this mentality, Ambassador Janez Lenarčič, the Director of the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), the UN affiliated group sending election observers throughout the United States, stated that the “threat of criminal sanctions against OSCE/ODIHR observers is unacceptable. The United States, like all countries in the OSCE, has an obligation to invite ODIHR observers to observe its elections.”

    According to the Washington Examiner, the Obama Administration jumped into the fray on the side of the United Nations over Texas:

    International election observers planning to visit Texas polling places have “full immunity” from being arrested in the United States, the State Department said when discussing a letter from the Texas Attorney General.

    We as a nation had better wake up, and soon. Internationalism is moving in at hyper-speed under the banners of both political parties. And it is not moving us anywhere close to where our Founders intended the nation to be. Rather, it’s consolidating power at the top, in direct competition with individual freedom.

    And remember this: forces of internationalism hate the United States Constitution. Although activist justices and lawless political leaders have done their best to sanitize it of any original intent, the US Constitution still stands as the foremost barrier to the ultimate goal of an international, socialist form of government.

    We must rally around the Constitution and demand that our leaders do the same!

    Just wanted to add that I am more infuriated over thi than any other single action Obama has taken. I'm beyond seeing red I'm shaking as I type this. The freaking UN has no freaking business in my country and I'm angry enough to go to war.

    I hope my state stands its ground on this issue. Time for a Constitutional confrontation with the big boys.

    Problem: Our current administration sides with the UN, not the US citizen.

    Going to be an interesting year.

    Why not just walk up to one of the UN POS and kick the **** out of him. A hospital stay will do him some good. When the cops come, say he tried to pick your pocket.

    Or simply walk in with a cane and walk out with a broken cane.

    No, not pistol expert, but there is a story behind that probably only a Marine would appreciate.

    steve, we need to all take some sort of action. Maybe not kick the snot out of them but perhaps surround them with a large group of "observers" of our own.

    Well, to make a long story short, I thought the pistol sharp shooter badge looked better than the pistol expert badge. After several days of practice I was consistently shooting expert, so on qualification day, I intentionally dropped a few rounds into the butts so I'd earn a sharpshooter badge. Hey, what can I say...I was 18. Today, though a bit wiser, I couldn't qualify at all with a pistol or a rifle.

    DaNang Sept 65-Dec'66. And again for a month long op in '71. I almost got out in early '80, but wife talked me into sticking it out for the retirement. Glad she did.

    Almost got called back in late '89 for the first Gulf war . Started getting standby letters from HQMC in late '88, after I'd already grown a beard & settled into a good job. :rolleyes:

    I've got the pistol badge, too. Both .45 and 9mm. I'm just as angry about this foreign invasion of our land and electoral system.

    I like the "observing the observers" idea.
