Default Obama to Texas- You cannot arrest UN even if they violate Texas Law

The Obama administration has informed the State of Texas that UN observers are "immune" to Texas law which protects the election process. Link below

This will be interesting to see if Rick Perry and Greg Abbott tell him to stick it up his Azz.




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

27 Oct 2012


by Joe Miller

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!

If only the Obama administration would have come to the aid of the embassy personnel in Libya as quickly as they came to the aid of the UN in this case......

I would charge them as "Terrorist" and vet them as such thru the legal system; in the name of "Home land Security". That will take a while.

I say shoot them and send them back to the White House. Obama is used to being responsible for people winding up in body bags on his watch.

Hey BHO,

Then send them on down.

I think Obama is lying through his teeth. There are few people with more power in this country than a county sheriff.

All sheriffs need to read this book: http://www.amazon.com/The-County-She.../dp/B002PKCMFO



Mack believes a sheriff’s authority is so great that he or she doesn’t have to obey the president.

A local Sheriff here is part of a nationwide movement that sees the county sheriff as the last line of defense against an overreaching federal government. The sheriff has the power to stand in the way and can help restore the U.S. Constitution as the “supreme law of the land.”

The sheriff said it would be his duty to turn away a federal agent from the county — including an IRS auditor — if the agency was overstepping its bounds.

Apparently only 2 "observers" will be in Austin. The local leftist grievance-mongers will follow them around town looking for who knows what. Let Chuck Norris, Steven Seagal and Ted Nugent step in for a peaceful citizens' arrest.

Why didn't Texas or anyone else make a fuss about the OSCE election observers when they were in San Antonio in 2008?

OSCE observers have been invited by Bush's State Department and Obama's ever two years since 2002.

What's different this time?

“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.”
So if the "United Nations-affiliated election monitors from Europe and central Asia" witness voter suppression activities by say someone like the New Black Panthers I guess thaat would be OK given they are only looking for voter suppression activities by conservative groups.

I will say it again, this is a F'ed up world we now live in.
