Slowly President Obama and Eric Holder have replaced Congress in deciding what laws need to be enforced and systematically destroying States Rights. They have control of the Federal Judges and since Roberts allowed them to shove Obamacare upon us, they have control of the Supreme Court. They are in no hurry as they have three more years to accomplish the Progressive-Liberals dream of total Federal Government control of every aspect of your life.
They ignore the immigration laws and silence the States when they try to enforce them. They are suing the States that require picture ID for voters so people can continue to vote multiple times and they can’t produce picture ID’s for the dead Democratic voters.
We have two states that recently voted to allow the sale of recreational marijuana and Mr. Holder announced the Justice Department would not enforce federal laws that prohibit sale or use of the narcotic. I expect that this trend will be expanded to all drugs as soon as California gets into action.
It is not what laws they decide to ignore that troubles me, it is why they are permitted to decide which laws to enforce. If Congress wanted to abolish these laws I have no problem. It would not surprise me if we see Holder decide to ignore prosecuting Democrats who commit murder, robbery, theft and extortion. He has already refused to charge some for voter intimidation and fraud.
This week Holder and the Obama administration jumped into the middle of the emotional and politicized debate over State same-sex marriage bans, declaring in an interview that state attorneys general are not obligated to defend laws that they believe are discriminatory. A Federal Judge ruled this week that the Texas law against same-sex marriage violates the Constitution. WOW, it took 250 years to discover this hidden in the most attacked doctrine in world history. I am wondering if Texas passed a law to not recognize the marriage of a man and a goat that Progressive Judge would find it Unconstitutional?
Mr. Holder stated that when laws touch on core constitutional issues like equal protection, an attorney general should apply the highest level of scrutiny before reaching a decision on whether to defend it. He said the decision should never be political or based on policy objections. Can anyone advise me of “any” decision made by a State, Congress, the Executive Branch or the Judicial Branch of our Federal Government been made for any reason other than political?
Quoting Holder, “Engaging in that process and making that determination is something that’s appropriate for an attorney general to do,”
Mr. Holder also cited the landmark Brown v. Board of Education case, which forced public school integration in 1954. He said “If I were attorney general in Kansas in 1953, I would not have defended a Kansas statute that put in place separate-but-equal facilities,” Mr. Holder said.
Holder has said he views today’s gay-rights campaigns as a continuation of the civil rights movement that won rights for black Americans in the 1950s and ’60s. Holder stated gay rights one of “the defining civil rights challenges of our time.”
To accelerate the unbelievable growing lawlessness Holder is now asking the states’ attorneys generals to pick and choose the laws they defend or prosecute.
In 2008 Obama was forceful in his opposition to Proposition 8, the California ballot measure which would eliminate a right to same-sex marriage that the state’s Supreme Court recently recognized.
Obama also said, “I’ve stated my opposition to this. I think it’s unnecessary,” Obama told MTV. “I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage. But when you start playing around with constitutions, just to prohibit somebody who cares about another person, it just seems to me that’s not what America’s about.” “Usually, our constitutions expand liberties, they don’t contract them,” he added.
There is no risk on his part, just as there was no risk on the president’s part. Both are posing, and in posing, sanitize a deep hatred of America’s laws.
If Holder can refuse to defend one portion of the Constitution, why not another? Next I expect Holder and Obama to encourage pro-life State Attorney Generals and District Attorney’a to stop defending abortion clinics beset by protesters. Following this Holder will convience State law officials that heroin addiction is a disease and the use of heroin wrongly classified as a crime to cease prosecuting offenders brought by their law enforcement officials to their jails.
Laws exist to require that every elected official comply. At least that was required before Obama and Holder. The Rule of Law is supposed to protect every American including those being represented by crooked politicians. It appears we have no laws to protect us from Obama, Holder, Reid or Pelosi just to name four. The Federal Courts are so packed with Progressive-Liberals it will take two generations to just get the balance that represents the majority of Americans back in power.
Holders latest encouragement to lawlessness ought to press an answer from every political candidate before every election: Will you uphold your oath and defend all of the Federal/State existing laws as you stand here and swear to do, or do you plan to selectively choose the laws to ignore?
The scariest thing for freedom loving Americans is watching Congress shove laws like the “Affordable Care Act” on us when the Democrats that had total control and did not even read what they voted for.
If the Democrats regain total power get ready to turn in your guns, sign over your retirement savings and if you are over 75, order your Casket or Urn. On second thought, if you are over 75 go ahead and place your order now. Obamacare assures your long-term healthcare is now severely limited or unaffordable for most.
I anticipate negative comments from the younger folks, including friends and family telling me I am over reacting. Well I am 83+ and if any of my critics has anything to say, wait to see if you make 83, then tell my heirs I was wrong.
How many people under 65 who read this expect to live to be 83? If no, why? Sorta scary isn’t it!
“VOTE”, you never know when it will be your last time you have the right.
