Chuck Norris Hunts for Obama’s ‘Secret Vault’ With An Interpol Conspiracy Theory

First Obama wants to kill Baby Jesus with his health care plan, now Chuck says the president’s coming after YOU with the help of some European cops. Maybe he’s been secretly testing out scripts for a return to the big screen…

Michael Isikoff writes on Newsweek’s Declassified:

The conspiracy theories about President Obama’s executive order on Interpol are getting wilder by the day.

Invoking no less an authority than Glenn Beck, movie tough guy (and political activist) Chuck Norris has taken aim at Obama’s Dec. 17 executive order extending certain “privileges, exemptions, and immunities” to Interpol, otherwise known as the International Police Organization, based in Lyon, France.

As we reported last weekend, thanks in part to the comments of Beck and Newt Gingrich (as well as the National Review‘s Andrew McCarthy) the order has spawned a rash of conspiracy theories in the conservative blogosphere claiming that Obama has given Interpol (or “the global police force,” as the critics like to call it) new powers to investigate and even lock up U.S. citizens.

(Never mind, as we pointed out, that contrary to the Man From U.N.C.L.E. fantasies of the blogosphere, Interpol officers actually don’t have the authority to arrest anybody on U.S. soil. The group is, instead, an international organization of police agencies whose purpose is to share information: it maintains master databases—of stolen passports, for example—and posts “red notices” of criminal suspects, including terrorists, drug traffickers, and child pornographers, who are wanted by law-enforcement officials in its 188 member countries.)

Now Norris, famed for his expertise in the martial arts, attacks from a different direction. In a new column on World Net Daily, the right-wing Web site, he claims that Obama signed the executive order so that he can slyly, without anyone noticing, create a “secret vault” at Interpol’s New York office to conceal important records about the war on terror from the American public.

  1. I think Bruce Lee kicked his brains right out of his head.

    Shut up, Braddock. I like Chuck's films but he should keep his mouth shut. Good luck getting me to tell him, though, I have heard all sorts of crazy things about this guy. Did you know that after Chuck Norris has sex he does not smoke a cigarette? Instead he likes to go outside and brand his cattle. Sorry.

      For the record, Sidekicks is not included in the list of his films that I enjoy. Just wanted to avoid any confusion there might have been there. So we're clear on this, right?

  4. I find it cute that he thinks the White House needs Interpol's assistance in keeping documents classified. I don't believe government secrecy works the way Chuck thinks it works.

    More “Walker: Texas Ranger” flashbacks. Go get the bad guys Chuckie. I think he should have his well water checked for heavy metal content. Seriously.
