DOJ tramples Constitution & subjects Americans to “Global Police Force”

Bethany Blankley at Constitution.com reports:

Following a recent United Nations (U.N.) LeadersSummit on Countering ISIL and Violent Extremism, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch just announced that the U.S. Department of Justice’s (DOJ) would be collaborating with several U.S. cities to form “a global law enforcement initiative,” known as “The Strong Cities Network” (SCN).

The objective is to “strengthen community resilience against violent extremism.” Lynch and others argue that American cities “are vital partners in international efforts to build social cohesion and resilience to violent extremism.”

It doesn’t sound so bad, does it? I mean, who wouldn’t want police forces around the world to work together? It’s just not that simple.

“Build social cohesion” – Cultures across the globe vary widely. We’ve seen firsthand how difficult that can be in the countries who’ve been more of a melting pot. Implementing “social cohesion” worldwide, sounds like mission impossible to me.

For instance, there have been previous votes to force U.N. states to criminalize acts of “defamation of religion.” Hmmm… ALL religions?

Blankley goes on to suggest:

The common denominator among all of this “collaboration,” from the U.N. to Jordan to Canada, is the incremental implementation of Shari’a Blasphemy and Apostasy Laws. Initially, these laws impose limits on free speech and expression. Eventually, they make illegal freedom of speech and free exercise of religion– both of which are protected in America by the U.S. Constitution.

This begs the question of “sovereignty,” because subscribing to SCN means we WILL be giving up some of our sovereignty, it’s just a question of HOW MUCH?

And then there’s that pesky U.S. Constitution. Where is this covered? Does the Obama Administration have the right to “sign on” to this program without Senate approval? I don’t think so. This “program” has far-reaching impact on potentially every American and our law enforcement community. Someone better check Article 6 with covers international agreements!
