so who is going to police the US in their human rights abuse and corruption and violation of the law and weapons trades or arming insurgents to overthrow a government, or bombing hospitals, or all the Americans on the list of the elusive Panama papers or trying to stop the oil pipelines through Europe or trying to get s cut in the biggest marine cargo trade zone, i. e. the south China seas
i just want to know if anyone can point me to where/when America was bestowed this authority

Heres the thing.
If you paid tax to the American government in the last hundred or so years, then you were indirectly complicit in human rights abuses, both within, and without the United States, as well as being guilty of helping to fund terrorism worldwide. If you own shares, whether knowingly or at the behest of your portfolio manager, in any of the PMCs, armament companies, or any part of the MIC, then you were indirectly complicit in human rights abuses. If you own stocks in the oil companies, the mineral resource mining companies, global agribusinesses, then you are indirectly responsible for and complicit in human rights abuses at least, as well as a whole host of other criminal activity.
By the definitions put forth, everyone with investments in anything BIG, has funded and aided in the destruction of human life and the violation of the human rights of someone on the planet, and would hold legal liability in those violations, because of the financial strands which tie them to the activities involved.

Read what I wrote please.
At no time did I suggest that people should not be paying their taxes. What I said is that by doing so, they become complicit in the funding and enactment of efforts to remove the human rights of others, and that is an actual fact.
It is upon peoples elected representatives, to ensure that their money is never spent on these matters, that their government is never complicit in these matters, that no one who has ever or will ever represent the country in any regard at all, ever comports themselves in a manner which causes, directly or otherwise, the removal of or violation of human rights, for any person or people on the face of the world.
When they fail, they damage their nations reputation and bring the entire taxpaying public into dangerous realms, legally speaking.

on the surface it just looks like a list of shady people from various countries but if you put the tin foil on (this is ats) aren't these all crimes that roughly match what trump has been accused of by the left? shady business dealings attacks on press bad treatment of protestors etc just seemed a bit odd and while probably nothing it popped out at me
(a) corruption, including the misappropriation of state assets, the expropriation of private assets for personal gain, corruption related to government contracts or the extraction of natural resources, or bribery; or

This sounds like the tool the DOJ needs to bring charges....the elites have crafted laws around themselves making it almost impossible to make a charge stick.
Something like this lets you look into things like.... How does Maxine Waters live in a home that she shouldnt be able to afford

Yeah, but did you actually read the OP?
It looks like Trump is going after corrupt politicians
Not really. He can't shake things up too much without Trump University being brought up again, or His other bankruptcies that amount to the GDP of some third world nations.
Saying "locker room talk" isn't going to save him the next round of that also.
