Most people who watch T.V. imagine Interpol as a worldwide police force whose agents travel the world in trench coats in pursuit of international criminals. Popular television programs in the 1970's and 1980's such as "Man from U.N.C.L.E," "Get Smart" and "Mission Impossible" offered the American people a small glimpse into the world of the "secret agent." Today the mention of the word "INTERPOL" tends to conjure up visions of swat teams and commando raids. Americans have always had a love affair with great spy novels and foreign intrigue. In reality, Interpol has no police force of its own. Interpol serves to provide the coordination and communication channels that the police of its 154 member nations use to make requested criminal investigations. Interpol is an international law enforcement agency acting through the U.S. National Central Bureau. The National Bureau, under control of the Secretary of Treasury, controls the Dept. of Treasury, along with B.A.T.F., Customs, I.R.S. and Secret Service. It also controls the Dept. of Justice, FBI, DEA, Dept. of State, and the Postal Service. Interpol's U.S. National Central Bureau operates from Treasury Department facilities. Interpol is a private organization that operates with all the privileges of a U.S. Federal agency. The United States accepted membership to Interpol in 1938. The office of the Attorney General is the designated office of responsibility for INTERPOL in the United States. The Attorney General is authorized to accept and maintain membership in INTERPOL, and to designate any departments and agencies which may participate in the U.S. representation with that organization. Article 21 of the Interpol Constitution states: "In the exercise of their duties, all members of the Executive Committee shall conduct themselves as representatives of the Organization and not as representatives of their respective countries." Article 30 of the Interpol Constitution states: "In the exercise of their duties, the Secretary General and the staff shall neither solicit nor accept instructions from any government or authority outside the Organization. They shall abstain from any action which might be prejudicial to their international task." In order to accommodate these Interpol requirements, federal legislation was enacted: Title 8, USC: Sec. 1481. Loss of nationality by native-born or naturalized citizen; voluntary action; burden of proof; presumptions (a) A person who is a national of the United States whether by birth or naturalization, shall lose his nationality by voluntarily performing any of the following acts with the intention of relinquishing United States nationality - (1) obtaining naturalization in a foreign state upon his own application or upon an application filed by a duly authorized agent, after having attained the age of eighteen years; or (2) taking an oath or making an affirmation or other formal declaration of allegiance to a foreign state or a political subdivision thereof, Title 8, USC Sec. 1103. Powers and duties (a) Attorney General The Attorney General shall be charged with the administration and enforcement of this chapter and all other laws relating to the immigration and naturalization of aliens, except insofar as this chapter or such laws relate to the powers, functions, and duties conferred upon the President, the Secretary of State, the officers of the Department of State, or diplomatic or consular officers: Provided, however, That determination and ruling by the Attorney General with respect to all questions of law shall be controlling. He shall have control, direction, and supervision of all employees and of all the files and records of the Service. He shall establish such regulations; prescribe such forms of bond, reports, entries, and other papers; issue such instructions; and perform such other acts as he deems necessary for carrying out his authority under the provisions of this chapter. He may require or authorize any employee of the Service or the Department of Justice to perform or exercise any of the powers, privileges, or duties conferred or imposed by this chapter or regulations issued thereunder upon any other employee of the Service. He shall have the power and duty to control and guard the boundaries and borders of the United States against the illegal entry of aliens and shall, in his discretion, appoint for that purpose such number of employees of the Service as to him shall appear necessary and proper. He is authorized to confer or impose upon any employee of the United States, with the consent of the head of the Department or other independent establishment under whose jurisdiction the employee is serving, any of the powers, privileges, or duties conferred or imposed by this chapter or regulations issued thereunder upon officers or employees of the Service. He may, with the concurrence of the Secretary of State, establish officers of the Service in foreign countries; and, after consultation with the Secretary of State, he may, whenever in his judgment such action may be necessary to accomplish the purposes of this chapter, detail employees of the Service for duty in foreign countries. The United Nations, the General Secretariat, and U.S. Treasury officials refer to INTERPOL as intergovernmental. Others call it a private or nongovernmental organization. Many perceive it in the mold of the United Nations. INTERPOL's status is important to its ability to elicit cooperation among its members, compliance with its rules and regulations, and recognition. U.S. Treasury officials emphasize that INTERPOL is intergovernmental. TITLE 22, USC Sec. 288 'International organization' defined; authority of President For the purposes of this subchapter, the term 'international organization' means a public international organization in which the United States participates pursuant to any treaty or under the authority of any Act of Congress authorizing such participation or making an appropriation for such participation, and which shall have been designated by the President through appropriate Executive order as being entitled to enjoy the privileges, exemptions, and immunities provided in this subchapter. ADMINISTRATIVE SUPPLIES FOR INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS Act Aug. 4, 1947, ch. 479, 61 Stat. 752, provided for the procurement and furnishing of administrative supplies by the Treasury Department to international organizations until July 1, 1948. This act was popularly known as the 'International Organizations Procurement Act of 1947.'

No. 12508, Mar. 22, 1985, 50 F.R. 11837. Title 8, USC... Sec. 1481. RIGHT OF EXPATRIATION R.S. Sec. 1999 provided that: 'Whereas the right of expatriation is a natural and inherent right of all people, indispensable to the enjoyment of the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; and whereas in the recognition of this principle this Government has freely received emigrants from all nations, and invested them with the rights of citizenship; and whereas it is claimed that such American citizens, with their descendants, are subjects of foreign states, owing allegiance to the governments thereof; and whereas it is necessary to the maintenance of public peace that this claim of foreign allegiance should be promptly and finally disavowed: Therefore any declaration, instruction, opinion, order, or decision of any officer of the United States which denies, restricts, impairs, or questions the right of expatriation, is declared inconsistent with the fundamental principles of the Republic.' The Attorney General takes an oath to Support and uphold the Constitution for the United States of America. The Attorney General, an appointed bureaucrat, through unconstitutional, unlawful "redelegated" authority, has been given the authority to make law, create agencies, and appoint directors of those agencies to rule over the American people under the authority of the recently enacted crime bill. This authority to make law was redelegated to her by the President, who as the Chief Executive has no constitutionally delegated authority to make law. As Attorney General of the United States, and as an active member of Interpol, she is in a position to impose foreign law against the American people through her control of all law enforcement agencies in the nation. The Attorney General, having expatriated herself (relinquished U.S. citizenship) to act as the United States representative to Interpol, under the law of the Constitution, no longer has the authority to hold office. The Attorney General, now acting for a foreign organization, has violated her sworn oath. As a result of this unconstitutional act by the federal government, America is becoming a police state. FOOTNOTE: You might also find it interesting that Treasury Delegation Order No. 92, states that the Internal Revenue Service is trained under the direction of the Division of "Human Resources" (U.N.) and the Commissioner (INTERNATIONAL), by the "Office Of Personnel Management." In 22 U.S.C.A. 287, pg. 248, 1979 Ed., The United Nations, you will find Executive Order No. 10422. The Office of Personnel Management is under the direction of the Secretary General of the United Nations. The Internal Revenue Service is also a member in a one hundred fifty (150) nation pact called the "International Criminal Police Organization", found at 22 U.S.C.A. 263a. The "Memorandum & Agreement" between the Secretary of Treasury/Corporate Governor of "The Fund" and "The Bank" and the Office of the U.S. Attorney General and his/her associates are soliciting and collecting information for Foreign Principals. (See also: The United States Government Manual 1990/91, pg. 385) It is also worthy of note that an Attorney/Representative is required to file a "Foreign Agents Registration Statement" pursuant to 22 U.S.C.. 611(c)(1)(iv) & 612, if representing the interests of a Foreign Principal or Power. (See: 22 U.S.C. 613, 18 U.S.C. 219 & 951)
Such testing would be required for states to continue receiving federal substance abuse grants, said the bill's sponsor, Rep. Susan Molinari, R-New York, at a Wednesday news conference.
"We feel that if a pregnant mother is abusing drugs, this should at the very least be a red flag for those charged with the protection of children," Molinari said, adding that exposure to drugs in the womb increases the chances that a child would become a victim of further abuse.
Monday's vote was held to comply with a judge's order in a lawsuit by preservationist groups and the cities of Compton and Vernon.
The commission signed an agreement last October with China Ocean Shipping Co. to build a 145-acre port at the former Long Beach Naval Station, ordered closed in 1994 because of military downsizing.
The company has operated in the port of Long Beach for 16 years, but some critics have argued that the expansion would allow China to spy and smuggle weapons.
Compton and Vernon are worried about increased traffic, preservation groups want to save buildings designed by a noted black architect and environmentalists say the project will destroy the nesting areas of the endangered black-crowned night herons.
City and port officials said the project was important to local economic growth.
Company officials have not indicated whether legal action will be taken against the move to vacate the lease.
In all, the prosecution's case is shaping up to be a lean presentation focusing on the April 19, 1995, explosion that destroyed the Oklahoma City federal building, McVeigh's alleged hateful views toward the government and evidence McVeigh rented the Ryder truck used in the bombing.
Lost in the streamlining is a key claim made in the indictment: that the day before the attack, McVeigh built the truck bomb with co-defendant Terry Nichols at a park north of Nichols' Huntington, Kan., home.
Sources speaking on condition of anonymity told The Associated Press that prosecutors scratched seven expert witnesses who could link secluded Geary Lake Park to a truck similar to one McVeigh allegedly rented and a pickup similar to the one owned by Nichols.
These witnesses had included experts in oil stains, tire tread marks and insect activity.
Witnesses who reported seeing Ryder trucks at the lake were scratched earlier because they gave details that conflicted with the evidence and prosecutors' theory of the case.
Also dropped was a gun dealer who was going to testify about a theft that the prosecution originally said was used to finance the bomb plot, and the head of the FBI's explosives unit, who identified the bomb's ingredients.
The government has also been unable to find a single credible witness placing McVeigh at the scene of the blast.
As a result, when the prosecution faces the 12-member jury, it's likely to outline a case missing some claims in the original indictment.
Among the witnesses dropped by the prosecution is David Williams, the head of the FBI explosives unit who concluded the blast was caused by an ammonium nitrate-fuel oil bomb. The prosecution had wanted to link those materials to McVeigh through phone records and Nichols's alleged activities.
A scathing Justice Department report issued earlier this week found Williams made scientifically unsound conclusions that were slanted in favor of the prosecution.
That same Justice Department report also attacked lab work on trace evidence linking McVeigh to bomb-making materials.
