OSCE TO NATO: “The US is obligated” to allow monitoring of US elections

PRESS RELEASE
October 29, 2012

In what can be summed up as the most under reported story of our time is that our elections have been under surveillance of UN International bodies since 2002 with incremental increased authority over them.

In a recent press release by the OSCE Ambassador Janez Lenarcic, he addresses NATO over concerns the Texas Attorney General said he would arrest OSCE observers if they stepped foot in his state. The idea that an international body would address NATO and the UN over our states wanting to remain free and sovereign is beyond me.

The mere thought that the UN or the OSCE has scolded the US in front of NATO makes me sick at my stomach. We ask them to leave and they get upset and whine. Folks let me tell you this is another incremental and gradual takeover of our nation that I have harped on for years. We open one door to them and then another and then we are under UN control completely.

They are even whining to Secretary of State Clinton. You know they will get whatever they want from her.

Read the press release below and see if you don’t think they are on their way to owning the election process. This international body is way to close to my ballot box for comfort.

Threat of criminal prosecution of observers at odds with established co-operation on United States elections, ODIHR Director says

WARSAW, 24 October 2012 – Ambassador Janez Lenarčič, the Director of the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), expressed his grave concern today over the threat of criminal prosecution of OSCE/ODIHR election observers.

This threat, contained in an open letter from the Attorney General of Texas, is at odds with the established good co-operation between OSCE/ODIHR observers and state authorities across the United States, including in Texas, Lenarčič said, adding that it is also contrary to the country’s obligations as an OSCE participating State.

The ODIHR Director shared his concerns in a letter to United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

“The threat of criminal sanctions against OSCE/ODIHR observers is unacceptable,” Lenarčič said. “The United States, like all countries in the OSCE, has an obligation to invite ODIHR observers to observe its elections.”

The ODIHR Director also stressed that any concerns or reports that the election observers intended to influence or interfere with the election process were groundless. He underlined that OSCE/ODIHR election observers adhere to all national laws and regulations, as well as a strict code of conduct.

“Our observers are required to remain strictly impartial and not to intervene in the voting process in any way,” Lenarčič said. “They are in the United States to observe these elections, not to interfere in them.”

The ODIHR limited election observation mission for the 2012 general elections in the United States consists of a core team of 13 experts, from 10 OSCE participating States, based in Washington D.C., and 44 long-term observers deployed throughout the country. These are the sixth United States elections the Office has observed, without incident, since 2002.
