While we were on vacation, the president of the United States signed an executive order about the International Criminal Police Organization, also called Interpol.
Their headquarters is in the Department of Justice. We work together and we should, but the president signed an executive order in December, "designating Interpol as a public international organization entitled to enjoy certain privileges, exemptions and immunities."
We've been asking ever since it was signed: why?
Who can tell me what special interest group asked for this? If it were about terror why not tell us that when he signed it? This Congress attacks our CIA and FBI, but Interpol gets immunity?
Why? It makes no sense. And perhaps the oddest part is that The New York Times actually reported on it.
Here's another story that made me double check if I was actually reading The Times — they seem to be getting it now on the economy, which makes me question everything I believe. Last week, they had this story about President Obama's home loan programs not working:
"The Obama administration's $75 billion program to protect homeowners from foreclosure has been widely pronounced a disappointment, and some economists and real estate experts now contend it has done more harm than good."
And another one about the Fed's incompetence: "It raises the question: Why should Congress, or anyone else, have faith that future Fed officials will recognize the next bubble?"
Did Ron Paul suddenly get a job as a reporter at The New York Times?
So not only are American watchdogs on top of things, it appears that even The New York Times is beginning to catch on.
Seriously: When the New York Times says maybe we shouldn't give government more power and they call out a failed Obama socialist program, something is stirring in America.
