    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!

    I see Texas cops as ignoring this and arresting anyway. If it gets bad enough I see vigilante justice arising

    If stopped or questioned by any of these OSCE/ODIHR members I'd spit right in their face.
    Welcome to America.

    You know, if you take care of the messenger.. it'll send a clear message to the sender.
    I hear Texas has a surplus of rope.. perhaps they should put it to some use.
    Last I checked:
    Rock beats Scissors, Paper beats Rock, Scissors beat Paper and Rope beats Full Immunity.

    Why are they only worried about voter suppression by conservative groups? Liberal voter suppression is ok?

    Because they were brought in to combat voter ID laws, which progressive/liberal groups claim disenfranchise minorities, the elderly and the poor.
    Which they believe vote for liberal democrats the majority of the time.

    They were notified/invited specifically by groups like the ACLU and the SPLC, which tend to ignore the documented cases.
    Like the NBPP voter intimidation that occurred in '08, that our DOJ dismissed as soon as Eric Holder got his way.

    Folks, it's a national election and people are checking to see that all voters have an opportunity to cast their vote (yes, even the poor colored ones). Do you guys want the poll tax and Jim Crow era to come to life again? Silly question, as the answer is probably yes.

    This whole thing was brought about by Republicans drumming up concern about non-existant "voter fraud" to prevent those por colored folks from voting so they are getting what they asked for.

    I think in TX they will be arrested and then settle it in court later.

    Or, they will just get a good old beat down, and drug outside to the gutter.

    Not at all, and here is why:

    The OP (who, pretty obviously thinks everyone in every country in the world hates us for our freedoms and wants us to perish) is outraged at feds saying that some folks in Texas can't stop people from observing a national election process. If, in fact, the Texicans have nothing to hide, why do they want to deter observers through the threat of arrest? Could it be that the former slave states want to go back to poll taxes and Jim Crow so only landed white people (men only) vote? Likely.

    Then we have some guys 2000 miles away wanting the Texicans to open a can of whup *** on the observers, suggesting a beat down might be a good idea. There's some critical thinking skills in use, right there. What I am saying is if these guys are eager to promote vigilante justice, perhaps they'd be well off to taste it from the bubblegum*y end of the stick before posting such comments.

    So there it is. Not a troll.

    Good on them for following protocol and making him show his ID. No, I was talking about the other Jim Crow laws. ;)

    You do know "Jim Crow" and poll tax origins ?

    White Democrats
    had regained political power in every Southern state. These conservative, white, Democratic Redeemer governments legislated Jim Crow laws, segregating black people from the white population. They also had a little club called the KKK...........

    Yes it was a SILLY question, because the answer is actually NO.

    Jim Crow laws defined "separate but equal" standards for black Americans. The problem was, they did nothing to assure the "equal" part.
    Voter ID targets no one based on color/race/creed, national origin or level of income.
    To imply that it does is ridiculous, and the Supreme Court has approved it.


    How dare you, or anyone else use the words "non-existent" and "voter fraud" in the same sentence!
    And what evidence do you have that it doesn't exist?

    As democrats and unions have continued to raise the stakes by paying sub-standard organizations like ACORN to register voters, more and more evidence exists that there are more fraudulent voter registrations than at any time in history.

    Maybe you never bothered to read the evidence, but a significant number of dead and non-existent voters cast votes in the election of Washington's governor a few years back, and NOTHING was ever done about it.

    The national election IS coming. And it promises to be a close one.
    I for one see nothing wrong with being asked for less I.D. than a person would need to cash a check, or get signed up for food stamps, before they get to decide who leads the free world.

    If you do, please put down the kool-aide and the crack-pipe and find something to read besides indymedia or the Daily Kos.
